LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Orthofix International N.V. (NASDAQ:OFIX) (the Company) today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Net sales of $119.5 million represent an increase of 2% over the second quarter of last year. Net sales grew 5% on a constant currency basis. Net income from continuing operations was $14.0 million, or $0.73 per diluted share compared to net income from continuing operations of $10.5 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the prior year. Adjusted net income was up 11% to $14.9 million, or $0.78 per diluted share compared to $13.4 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, in the prior year.

"The second quarter results demonstrate the strength of our Regenerative Solutions and highlights our strategy to leverage our differentiated product offerings across both our Spine and Orthopedic business units," commented President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Vaters. "In addition, the close of the Sports Medicine divestiture provides us with the financial capacity and flexibility to make the necessary investments to drive long-term growth."

Net sales were $119.5 million in the second quarter of 2012, up 2% on a reported basis, and 5% on a constant currency basis, from $116.7 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Foreign currency negatively impacted second quarter net sales by approximately $3.3 million, or 3% of net sales.

Second quarter net sales for the Company's Spine global business unit were up 7% to $81.8 million, which was driven by a 9% increase in Regenerative Stimulation products used in spine applications. Revenue from Repair Implants and Regenerative Biologics increased 4% over prior year, which was primarily a result of increased adoption of Trinity® Evolution™ in spine applications, which led to a 48% increase in sales of Regenerative Biologics in the second quarter of 2012.

For the Company's Orthopedic global business unit, second quarter net sales were $37.7 million, decreasing 6% on a reported basis, while increasing 2% on a constant currency basis, compared to the prior year. Foreign currency negatively impacted reported net sales by $3.3 million, or 9% of net orthopedic sales. Constant currency sales growth was driven by sales of Regenerative Biologics in Orthopedic applications, along with recently launched internal fixation systems for the foot and ankle.

Reported net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2012 was $14 million and net income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.73.

After adjusting for a $3.1 million charge in R&D for an unfavorable arbitration resolution related to a 2008 co-development agreement, and the $1.4 million charges for prejudgment interest related to U.S. Government resolutions, the second quarter 2012 adjusted operating margin increased 130 basis points to 20.9% over the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily the result of leverage from SG&A expenses on higher sales.

The second quarter for 2012 also included $0.4 million ($0.3 million, net of tax) or $0.01 per diluted share of legal expenses associated with the closing of the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation of the bone growth stimulation business and the Company's Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) matter at the Company's former orthopedic distribution entity in Mexico, each of which were finalized during the second quarter with the signing and filing of definitive settlement agreements. The prior year reported and adjusted results included $1.6 million ($1.0 million net of tax) or $0.05 per diluted share of legal expenses associated with the DOJ and FCPA matters mentioned above.

2012 Outlook Update

Based upon changes in foreign currency exchange rates, the Company expects net sales from continuing operations to be between $481 million to $491 million for the full year 2012 or a 2% to 4% increase over the corresponding net sales from continuing operations in 2011. The Company expects GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to be approximately $2.79 to $2.89 per diluted share, and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to be approximately $2.95 to $3.05 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Performance Measures

The tables in this press release present reconciliations of net sales, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per diluted share, operating income and effective tax rate calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to non-GAAP performance measures, referred to as "Adjusted Constant Currency Net Sales", "Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share", "Adjusted EPS from Continuing Operations" and "Adjusted Operating Income" that exclude the items specified in the tables. Management believes it is important to provide investors with the same non-GAAP metrics it uses to supplement information regarding the performance and underlying trends of Orthofix's business operations in order to facilitate comparisons to its historical operating results and internally evaluate the effectiveness of the Company's operating strategies. A more detailed explanation of the items in the tables below that are excluded from GAAP net sales and GAAP net income (loss) and net income (loss) per diluted share, as well as why management believes the non-GAAP measures are useful to them, is included in the Regulation G Supplemental Information schedule attached to this press release.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Performance Measures

Adjusted Net Income from continuing operations and Adjusted Net Income from continuing operations per Diluted Share Reconciling Items

Note: The reconciling items were tax effected in the current period at the prevailing rate within the respective jurisdictions.

Adjusted Operating Income Reconciling Items

Adjusted EPS from Continuing Operations Reconciling Items

Note: The reconciling items were tax effected in the current period at the prevailing rate within the respective jurisdictions.

Management use of, and economic substance behind, Non-GAAP Performance Measures

Management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate performance period over period, to analyze the underlying trends in the Company's business, to assess its performance relative to its competitors and to establish operational goals and forecasts that are used in allocating resources. In recent years, management has increased its focus on cash generation and debt reduction. Management uses these non-GAAP measures as the basis for assessing the ability of the underlying operations to generate cash for use in paying down debt. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to further its understanding of the performance of the Company's business units. The items excluded from Orthofix's non-GAAP measures are also excluded from the profit or loss reported by the Company's business units for the purpose of analyzing their performance.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The non-GAAP measures used in this press release may have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as a replacement for GAAP performance measures. Some of the limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP performance measures are that they exclude items that reflect an economic cost to the Company and can have a material effect on cash flows. Similarly, equity compensation expense does not directly impact cash flows, but is part of total compensation costs accounted for under GAAP.

Compensation for Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Orthofix compensates for the limitations of its non-GAAP performance measures by relying upon its GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance. The GAAP results provide the ability to understand the Company's performance based on a defined set of criteria. The non-GAAP measures reflect the underlying operating results of the Company's businesses, excluding non-cash items, which management believes is an important measure of the Company's overall performance. The Company provides a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP performance measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures, and encourages investors to review this reconciliation.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Measures to Investors

Orthofix believes that providing non-GAAP measures that exclude certain items provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by the Company's senior management in its financial and operational decision-making. Management believes that providing this information enables investors to better understand the performance of the Company's ongoing operations and to understand the methodology used by management to evaluate and measure such performance. Disclosure of these non-GAAP performance measures also facilitates comparisons of Orthofix's underlying operating performance with other companies in its industry that also supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP performance measures.
