On January 5, 2012, after the close of market, Integra LifeSciences issued a press release announcing its fourth quarter and full year 2011 financial results wherein the Company announced that it received a warning letter from the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) related to quality systems and compliance issues at its collagen manufacturing facility located in Plainsboro, New Jersey. The letter resulted from an inspection held at that facility in August 2011. The Company also announced it expects total revenues in the fourth quarter to be approximately $202 million to $203 million. These fourth quarter 2011 revenues are approximately 3% below the low end of previously issued guidance. Integra LifeSciences stated that the revenue shortfall resulted from inventory reduction initiatives by its instruments distributors, weakness outside of the U.S., and weaker than expected sales of its domestic Extremity Reconstruction products.This news caused Integra LifeSciences stock to fall approximately 20% on January 6, 2012 to close at $24.49 per share, down from its previous day’s close of $30.50 per share.
