WARSAW, Ind., July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The Company reported second quarter net sales of $1.954 billion, an increase of 1.1% over the prior year period, and an increase of 2.1% on a constant currency basis.  Excluding approximately 240 basis points of contribution from the LDR Holding Corporation acquisition, second quarter 2017 revenues decreased 1.3% from the second quarter of 2016, or 0.3% on a constant currency basis.


Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.90.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $2.08, an increase of 3.0% over the prior year period.

"During the second quarter, we increased production output from our Warsaw North Campus manufacturing facility, and continued to drive efforts to achieve best-in-class quality systems.  Our sales growth fell short of our expectations, due in part to production delays of certain key brands and slower-than-expected sales recapture from previously affected customers in the United States.  These factors have informed our updated outlook for the full year," said Daniel P. Florin, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Zimmer Biomet.  "Looking forward, we remain focused on fully restoring product supply to enhance our commercial execution, while continuing to closely engage with our customers and take advantage of the opportunities in front of us."

"We have great confidence in Dan as he transitions into the role of Interim CEO. He has already begun to leverage his deep knowledge of Zimmer Biomet and decades of medical device industry experience to lead the Company during this period," said Larry C. Glasscock, Chairman of the Board of Zimmer Biomet.  "We have initiated a thorough search to identify the best candidate to serve as Zimmer Biomet's next CEO.  We are seeking a strong leader, whose strategic and operational track record aligns with Zimmer Biomet's commitment to growth and enhancing stockholder value."

Net earnings for the second quarter were $184.2 million, and $424.6 million on an adjusted basis, an increase of 4.3% over the prior year period.  Operating cash flow for the second quarter was $440.5 million.

In the quarter, the Company paid $48.4 million in dividends and declared a second quarter dividend of $0.24 per share.  The Company has made approximately $650 million of net debt repayments through the first half of 2017.

The Company is updating its full-year 2017 constant currency revenue and adjusted earnings per share guidance.
