  • Sales increased 3% over the second quarter of 2012 to a record $171.3 million, including 6% constant currency organic growth.
    • Cardiac/neuromodulation revenue increased 5% driven by stronger market performance and continued deepening relations with OEM partners.

    • Portable medical revenues increased 9% for the quarter reflecting the ongoing impact of products introduced in 2012.
  • GAAP Operating Income of $17.1 million increased $6.0 million or 54% in the quarter.
    • Gross margins improved 220 basis points to 33.4% driven by plant productivity, the completion of the Swiss orthopaedic facility consolidation and mix of product sales.
    • Total operating expenses declined $0.7 million or 2% as a result of lower other operating expenses reflecting lower consolidation and optimization charges, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative spend because of continued investment in our sales and marketing capabilities.
  • Adjusted Operating Income improved 19% to $22.2 million.
    • Gross profit improvement and operational efficiencies flowed through to adjusted operating income.
