“Our first quarter sales performance continues to demonstrate the strength of our diverse portfolio. We experienced solid growth and demand across many of our product lines and saw positive dynamics in our markets,” said Jan De Witte, Integra’s president and chief executive officer. “We remain focused on delivering profitable growth while making critical investments to support our long-term strategic objectives and commitments.”

First Quarter 2023 Consolidated Performance

Total reported revenues of $380.8 million increased 1.1% on a reported basis and increased 4.6% on an organic basis compared to the prior year.

The Company reported GAAP gross margin of 61.1%, compared to 62.1% in the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted gross margin was 67.3%, compared to 67.7% in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2023 was $92.3 million, or 24.2% of revenue, compared to $93.5 million million, or 24.8% of revenue, in the prior year.

The Company reported GAAP net income of $24.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023, compared to a GAAP net income of $32.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the prior year.

Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2023 was $60.7 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to $62.0 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the prior year.

First Quarter 2023 Segment Performance

  • Codman Specialty Surgical (~65% of Revenues)
    • Total revenues were $248.1 million, representing reported growth of 0.3% and organic growth of 3.5% compared to the first quarter of 2022, driven by strength in CUSA® Clarity capital and disposables and Certas® Plus valves, including high single-digit growth for international, led by Japan and China. The growth momentum was partially offset by the lack of CereLink® monitor revenue in the quarter, following the third quarter 2022 recall, as well as continued supply challenges.
  • Tissue Technologies (~35% of Revenues)
    • Total revenues were $132.7 million, representing reported growth of 2.6% and organic growth of 6.8% compared to the first quarter of 2022, driven by broad strength in our Wound Reconstruction portfolio, with double digit growth from Integra Skin, MicroMatrix®, Gentrix®, and Cytal® and high single-digit growth from SurgiMend®, partially offset by the continued pressure in Private Label as our partners normalize their inventory levels.

Key Products and Business Highlights

  • Strong market demand and procedure volumes near pre-COVID levels
  • Expanded the CUSA Clarity portfolio with the launch of the single-sided bone tip in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand
  • Launched MicroMatrix in the Europe
  • Progressed return-to-market plans for the CereLink ICP monitor with expectation to re-launch late third quarter
  • Advanced PMA projects for SurgiMend and DuraSorb®
    • Submission of PMA supplement for SurgiMend still expected in third quarter
    • SIA integration and DuraSorb PMA clinical trial on track
    • Paused production at the Boston manufacturing site in March while pulling forward quality system upgrades project into the first half of 2023
  • Enhanced our leadership and clinical capability with the appointment of Stuart Hart, M.D., as chief medical officer
  • Strengthened our balance sheet by amending and extending our credit facility from 2025 to 2028
  • Returned value to shareholders by initiating a $150 million accelerated share repurchase

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

The Company generated cash flow from operations of $26 million in the quarter. Total balance sheet debt and net debt at the end of the quarter were $1.45 billion and $1.15 billion, respectively, and the consolidated total leverage ratio was 2.5x.

As of quarter end, the Company had total liquidity of approximately $1.61 billion, including $307 million in cash and the remainder available under the revolving credit facility.

2023 Outlook

For the full year 2023, the Company is reaffirming its February revenue and adjusted EPS expectations of $1,602 to $1,620 million and $3.43 to $3.51, respectively. The revenue range represents reported growth of 2.9% to 4.0%, with organic growth of 4.0% to 5.2%.

For the second quarter 2023, the Company expects reported revenues in the range of $396 million to $400 million, representing reported growth of -0.5% to 0.5% and organic growth of 1.5% to 2.5%. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are expected to be in the range of $0.75 to $0.79, including the impact of the acceleration of the Boston quality system upgrades from the second half of the year into the second quarter.

The Company’s guidance for the second quarter and full-year organic sales growth excludes acquisitions and divestitures, the effects of foreign currency and the year-over-year change in revenue from discontinued products. Organic growth excludes sales from the TWC divestiture as of September 1, 2022, and sales from the acquisition of SIA through December 1, 2023. Adjusted earnings per share guidance reflects the impact of the divestiture of the TWC business, the SIA acquisition and the impact of foreign currency.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures
In addition to our GAAP results, we provide certain non-GAAP measures, including organic revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow conversion, and net debt. Organic revenues consist of total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates, revenues from current-period acquisitions and product divestitures and discontinuances. Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization; (ii) other income (expense); (iii) interest income and expense; (iv) income tax expense (benefit); and (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income. The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) structural optimization charges; (ii) divestiture, acquisition and integration-related charges; (iii) EU Medical Device Regulation-related charges; (iv) intangible asset amortization expense; and (v) income tax impact from adjustments. The adjusted earnings per diluted share measure is calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The measure of free cash flow consists of GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. The adjusted free cash flow conversion measure is calculated by dividing free cash flow by adjusted net income. The measure of net debt consists of GAAP total debt (excluding deferred financing costs) less cash and cash equivalents.

Reconciliations of GAAP revenues to organic revenues and GAAP adjusted net income to adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share all for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, and the free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, appear in the financial tables in this release.

The Company believes that the presentation of organic revenues and the other non-GAAP measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. For further information regarding why Integra believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K regarding this earnings press release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This Current Report on Form 8-K is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or on our website at www.integralife.com.
