"We are advancing Halyard's transformation into a leading medical devices company and our strong financial profile leaves us well-positioned for future growth."
Third Quarter 2016 Operating Results
Net sales of $398 million increased 2 percent compared to the prior year, including the CORPAK acquisition that contributed 3 percent of the growth. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 1 percent. Excluding expected lower Corporate and Other Sales and the CORPAK acquisition, volumes were flat compared to the prior year and net selling prices were lower by 2 percent.
Operating profit was $21 million in the third quarter of 2016 versus a net loss of $(461) million in 2015. On an adjusted basis, operating profit was $43 million compared to $46 million in the prior year. Volume growth in Medical Devices, including CORPAK, and manufacturing cost savings were offset by lower selling prices in S&IP and higher selling, general and administrative expenses.
Adjusted operating profit for the third quarter 2016 excludes $7 million spin-related transition charges, $4 million for acquisition-related charges, $5 million for litigation matters and $6 million for intangible amortization expense.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter, excluding spin-related charges, acquisition-related charges and litigation expenses was $53 million compared to $56 million in the prior year.
Third Quarter 2016 Business Segment Results
Net sales of Medical Devices in the third quarter increased 15 percent to $145 million compared to the third quarter 2015, driven by a 4 percent increase in organic sales volumes and 11 percent growth attributed to the CORPAK acquisition. Performance was driven by volume growth across all product categories and 1 percent favorable currency exchange rates.
Operating profit for Medical Devices was $32 million compared to $29 million in the third quarter 2015. Results were driven by higher sales volumes and manufacturing cost savings, which were partially offset by planned higher selling and research and development expense to help drive future growth.
Surgical and Infection Prevention
S&IP net sales were $249 million, down 3 percent compared to the third quarter of 2015. On a constant currency basis, net sales decreased 4 percent. Excluding sales to Kimberly-Clark, volumes were down 2 percent, as continued robust demand in exam gloves was offset by lower volume in surgical drapes and gowns and sterilization. Selling prices were lower by 3 percent, concentrated in exam gloves and sterilization.
S&IP operating profit for the quarter was $22 million compared to $26 million in the third quarter of 2015. Performance was impacted by lower net selling prices and volumes that were partially offset by manufacturing cost savings and favorable currency exchange rates.
In the first nine months of 2016, net sales of Medical Devices were $413 million, up 10 percent compared to the comparable period in 2015. Organic sales volumes increased 4 percent and growth attributable to the CORPAK acquisition was 6 percent. Performance was driven by growth in each product category, in line with expectations.
Through nine months, operating profit for Medical Devices was $91 million, compared to $87 million in the first nine months of 2015. Results were driven by higher volumes and favorable currency exchange rates partially offset by higher research and development spending, and selling and marketing expense to help drive growth.
Surgical and Infection Prevention
In the first nine months of 2016, S&IP net sales totaled $760 million, a 1 percent decline compared to the first nine months of 2015. Sales volumes increased 2 percent, driven by continued strong demand for exam gloves, which was offset by 3 percent lower selling prices, primarily in exam gloves and sterilization.
Year-to-date S&IP operating profit was $72 million compared to $71 million in the same period last year. Performance for the first nine months was driven by higher sales volumes, favorable currency exchange rates and manufacturing cost savings partially offset by lower selling prices.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
Total debt at the end of the third quarter 2016 was $589 million, consisting of a secured term loan, unsecured notes and net borrowing on the revolver to fund the CORPAK acquisition, compared to total debt of $578 million at the end of 2015.
Cash from operations for the third quarter was $50 million compared to $19 million a year ago. Capital spending for the third quarter totaled $8 million compared to $19 million in 2015. The decrease in capital spending for the quarter was attributed to higher spending for spin-related items in the prior year. The company's cash balance was $87 million at the end of the third quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the accompanying tables include the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures:
- Net sales on a constant currency basis
- Adjusted net income
- Adjusted diluted earnings per share
- Adjusted gross and operating profit
- Adjusted effective tax rate
- Adjusted EBITDA
These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following items, as applicable, for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures:
- Transition costs relating to the separation from Kimberly-Clark, which include costs to establish Halyard Health's capabilities as a stand-alone entity. These costs are related primarily to the transition services the company receives from Kimberly-Clark as well as the rebranding and other supply chain transition costs, and are expected to continue through 2016.
- Manufacturing strategic charges and gains relating to exiting one of the disposable glove facilities in Thailand and outsourcing the related production.
- Expenses associated with the amortization of intangible assets associated with prior business acquisitions.
- The positive or negative effect of changes in currency exchange rates during the year.
- Expenses associated with certain litigation matters.
- Certain acquisition and integration charges related to the acquisition of CORPAK MedSystems, Inc.
- The remeasurement of a deferred tax asset due to Thailand's statutory tax rate change.
The company provides these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures. Management and the company's Board of Directors use net sales on a constant currency basis, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted operating profit, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow to (a) evaluate the company's historical and prospective financial performance and its performance relative to its competitors, (b) allocate resources and (c) measure the operational performance of the company's business units and their managers. Management also believes that the use of an adjusted effective tax rate provides improved insight into the tax effects of our ongoing business operations.
Additionally, the Compensation Committee of the company's Board of Directors will use certain of the non-GAAP financial measures when setting and assessing achievement of incentive compensation goals. These goals are based, in part, on the company's net sales on a constant currency basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA which will be determined by excluding certain items that are used in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures.
Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.
