"We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead in 2015, including new product introductions, ramping up production in our new collagen manufacturing center, publication of the data from our diabetic foot ulcer study, and the sales channel investments we are making in our wound, extremities and international businesses," said Mr. Arduini. "The accomplishments of the last two years have laid the foundation for Integra to achieve our long-term growth and profitability objectives."

Outlook for 2015

The Company expects full year 2015 revenues to be between $960 million and $980 million. The Company expects its GAAP earnings per diluted share for the full year to be between $0.87 and $1.05 and adjusted earnings per diluted share to be between $3.05 and $3.23. This guidance includes the performance of the spine business for the full year.

At current foreign currency exchange rates, the Company expects a negative impact of approximately $25 million on 2015 revenues, and a $0.10 to $0.15 negative impact on adjusted earnings per share, compared to what they would have been at 2014 average rates.

"The spin-off of SeaSpine remains on track to be completed in the second half of 2015," said Glenn Coleman, Chief Financial Officer. "As we move forward with the realignment of our business into two global segments, we expect the simplified, more focused structure to result in faster growth and margin expansion. Overall, our 2015 guidance reflects continued progress toward our long-term growth and profitability targets."

In accordance with our usual practice, expectations for financial performance do not include the impact of acquisitions or other strategic corporate transactions that have not yet closed.

In the future, the Company may record, or expects to record, certain additional revenues, gains, expenses or charges as described in the Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures below that it will exclude in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per share for historical periods and in providing adjusted earnings per share guidance.
