Merit Medical Reports Record Revenues For The Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012 And Gives Sales And Earnings Guidance For 2013

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merit Medical Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:MMSI), a leading manufacturer and marketer of proprietary disposable devices used primarily in cardiology, radiology and endoscopy, today announced record revenues of $102.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 12% over revenues of $91.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were a record $394.3 million, an increase of 10% over revenues of $359.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Revenues from Merit's core business grew 10% and 9% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods of 2011. Revenues related to Merit's recent acquisition of Thomas Medical Products Inc. ("Thomas Medical") from a division of GE Healthcare were $1.9 million for the last twelve days of December 2012.

Merit's non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $6.2 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to $7.4 million, or $0.18 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Merit's non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $30.8 million, or $0.72 per share, compared to $30.9 million, or $0.78 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

GAAP net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $641,000, or $0.01 per share, compared to $5.0 million, or $0.12 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $19.7 million, or $0.46 per share, compared to $23.0 million, or $0.58 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in GAAP net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 was primarily due to $2.2 million, net of tax, for non-recurring costs related to the acquisition of Thomas Medical and $1.5 million for a capital loss related to an investment in a privately-held company.
