Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron Medical, said, "During the first quarter we capitalized on our global presence and improved execution of our growth strategy. We achieved growth in all geographies, with North America revenue up 7.4% year-over-year, or 12% excluding the CoolTouch OEM business that was discontinued. International results included growth of 7.1% in the EMEA region (8.3% in constant currency) and 10.3% in the Asia-Pacific region (11.1% in constant currency). Global revenue growth was driven by our higher margin Emerging Products, which represent our strategic growth drivers that were up 34%, with nearly half of the dollar growth coming from the Body Shaping portfolio. During the quarter we began our international launch of UltraShape in select markets, including China, and were pleased with the customer interest. In total, Emerging Products revenue accounted for 17% of total revenue in the first quarter 2016, up from 14% in the first quarter 2015. Another important focus for the Company is delivering operating leverage, which improved in the first quarter as we benefitted from the growth driven by the Emerging Products and as we began to leverage our prior investments in an expanded North American sales force."

Total revenue in the first quarter 2016 was $68.7 million, representing growth of 8.4% year-over-year (9.2% in constant currency).

Non-GAAP Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2016:

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
This press release provides financial measures for gross margin, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share, which exclude expenses related to amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, re-measurement of contingent consideration fair value, tax benefit, changes in foreign currency exchange rates and non-recurring expenses, and are therefore not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance because it reflects our ongoing operational results, operating income (loss), net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share, and exclude the impact of non-recurring, unusual terms or trends that are not considered core influences on the results of operations, financial position or cash flows. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses non-GAAP measures to make operational and investment decisions and to evaluate the Company's performance and, therefore, believes it is important to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors. Constant currency results assume foreign revenues, gross profit and operating income (loss) are translated from foreign currencies to the U.S. dollar, at rates consistent with those in the prior year. Management excluded the translation differences because it considers the like-for-like basis of constant currency financial measures more appropriately reflects changes due to operating performance. A reconciliation of each GAAP to non-GAAP financial measure discussed in this press release is contained in the accompanying financial tables.
