Tornier Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: TRNX

Tornier N.V. (NASDAQ: TRNX), a global medical device company focused on providing surgical solutions to orthopaedic extremity specialists, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 and updated its fiscal 2012 financial outlook.

Sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $58.0 million, representing increases of 0.8% as reported and 5.5% in constant currency. Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $198.5 million, compared to sales of $192.1 million for the same period of 2011, an increase of 3.3% as reported and 7.0% in constant currency. Third quarter sales of Tornier’s extremity product categories increased 3.8% as reported and 6.9% in constant currency year over year and represented 84.0% of reported global sales.

Douglas W. Kohrs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tornier, commented, “We are pleased with the continued growth of our extremities business, led by sales of our reverse shoulder products, which showed strong growth in both our U.S. and international markets. Despite continuous austerity pressures in our European markets, we believe the combined product portfolio of Tornier and OrthoHelix strongly positions Tornier for leadership in both the shoulder and the foot and ankle markets.”

The Company’s third quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, totaled $4.8 million, or 8.3% of sales. Increased investments in research and development, which totaled 9.1% of sales in the quarter, resulted in a decline of $0.1 million in adjusted EBITDA versus the third quarter of 2011. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, adjusted EBITDA increased 8.4% to $22.0 million, or 11.1% of sales, compared to $20.3 million, or 10.5% of sales, in the same period last year.

Mr. Kohrs continued, “During the third quarter of 2012, our gross margins improved for the third consecutive quarter and expanded 180 basis points year over year to 72.9%. This increase funded additional research and development investment associated with the pending launch of our Ascend Flex shoulder and additional investment in our U.S. sales organization. Looking towards the remainder of the year, we remain focused on capitalizing on the OrthoHelix acquisition and building value for our shareholders.”
