Kinetic Concepts Reports Financial Results For Third Quarter And First Nine Months Of 2011
Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (NYSE: KCI) today reported third quarter 2011 total revenue of $531.4 million, an increase of 5% from the third quarter of 2010. Total revenue for the first nine months of 2011 was $1.55 billion, which represented a 4% increase from the prior-year period. Foreign currency exchange movements favorably impacted total revenue by 2% for both the third quarter and the first nine months of 2011 compared to the corresponding periods of the prior year.
Net earnings for the third quarter of 2011 were $90.7 million, an increase of 20% compared to $75.8 million for the same period one year ago. Net earnings per diluted share, as reported, were $1.16 for the third quarter, an increase of 9% from the same period one year ago. Fully diluted, weighted average shares outstanding were 78.4 million for the third quarter of 2011 and 74.9 million for the first nine months of 2011, representing increases of 9% and 5%, respectively, from the corresponding periods of the prior year due primarily to the dilutive effect of our convertible notes and related warrants. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the effects of certain adjustments including acquisition-related expenses related to our 2008 purchase of LifeCell and expenses recorded in the third quarter of 2011 associated with our proposed merger transaction, net earnings per diluted share were $1.35 for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $1.20 from the prior-year period.
“Our third quarter financial performance was very solid, and once again, demonstrates KCI’s commitment to fiscal discipline while simultaneously launching new products and enhancing our global footprint,” said Catherine Burzik, President and Chief Executive Officer of KCI. “While our capital structure will change as a result of our pending merger transaction, we will continue to invest in innovation and geographic expansion in keeping with our perpetual commitment and promise to improve patient outcomes around the globe.”
