Fourth Quarter 2013

Worldwide revenues were $60.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to revenues of $44.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Domestic revenues were $54.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to revenues of $40.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. International revenues were $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to revenues of $4.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. On a constant currency basis, international revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased 30 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. Worldwide revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 include $19.9 million from the Pioneer acquisition. If Pioneer revenues had been included for the fourth quarter for both 2012 and 2013, worldwide revenues would have decreased by 11 percent.

“We were pleased that revenues for the quarter came in modestly higher than projected,” said Brian K. Hutchison, president and chief executive officer. “During the quarter we saw a steady increase in average daily revenues for our direct spine and direct sports distribution, indicating that these businesses are starting to see a recovery. In the direct surgical specialties business we continued to gain traction, highlighted by a group purchasing agreement with Yankee Alliance. Also in the fourth quarter, we began distribution of map3 cellular allogeneic bone graft to targeted surgeons while building inventory.”

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the company reported a net loss applicable to common shares of $8.5 million and net loss per fully diluted common share of $0.15, based on 56.4 million fully diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income applicable to common shares of $2.3 million and net income per fully diluted common share of $0.04 for the fourth quarter of 2012, based on 56.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding. The quarter included a pre-tax restructuring charge of $2.9 million or $0.03 per fully diluted share related to severance payments and location closure following the Pioneer acquisition. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding acquisition related expenses, certain purchase accounting adjustments, integration expenses and the restructuring charge, the company reported a net loss applicable to common shares of $568,000 and a net loss per fully diluted common share of $0.01.

Full Year 2013

Worldwide revenues were $198 million for the full year of 2013 compared to revenues of $178.1 million for the full year 2012. Domestic revenues were $177.2 million for the full year of 2013 compared to revenues of $156.8 million for the full year 2012. International revenues were $20.8 million for the full year of 2013 compared to revenues of $21.3 million for the full year 2012. On a constant currency basis, international revenues for the full year 2013 decreased 5 percent compared to the full year 2012. Worldwide revenues for the full year 2013 include $36 million from the Pioneer acquisition for the period of July 16, 2013 to December 31, 2013. If the acquisition were effective January 1 for both 2012 and 2013, worldwide revenues would have decreased by 9 percent.

For the full year 2013, the company reported a net loss applicable to common shares of $19.2 million and net loss per fully diluted common share of $0.34, based on 56.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding, compared to a net income applicable to common shares of $8.4 million and net income per fully diluted common share of $0.15, based on 56.1 million fully diluted shares outstanding for the full year 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding acquisition related expenses, certain purchase accounting adjustments, integration expenses, a litigation settlement charge and the restructuring charge, the company reported breakeven results.

Fiscal 2014 and First Quarter Outlook

The company expects full year revenues for 2014 to be between $245 million and $250 million. Full year net (loss) income per fully diluted common share is expected to be in the range of $(0.01) to $0.01, based on 57 million fully diluted common shares outstanding. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding certain first quarter purchase accounting adjustments, the company expects net income per fully diluted common share to be in the range of $0.06 to $0.08.

For the first quarter of 2014, the company expects revenues to be between $58 million and $59 million, and net loss per fully diluted common share to be approximately $0.07, based on 56.8 million fully diluted shares outstanding. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding certain purchase accounting adjustments, the company expects breakeven results.

“Due to timing of orders in the commercial businesses we anticipate that first quarter revenue will be slightly down sequentially, but will then increase sequentially on a quarterly basis throughout the year,” said Hutchison. “In 2014, the company will focus on returning the direct sports and direct spine businesses to growth, gaining traction in our direct surgical specialties business, launching new products and generating manufacturing and operational efficiencies.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement RTI Surgical’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, including non-GAAP net (loss) income applicable to common shares and non-GAAP net (loss) income per fully diluted share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are included in the reconciliation above.

The following are explanations of the adjustments that management excluded as part of the non-GAAP measures for the three and twelve month period ended December 31, 2013 as well as the reasons for excluding the individual item:

2013 Inventory purchase price adjustment – This adjustment represents the purchase price effects of acquired Pioneer inventory that was sold from the date of acquisition through December 31, 2013 and which has been included in costs of processing and distribution. Management removes the amount of these nonrecurring costs from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the year-to-date period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

2013 Litigation settlement charge – This adjustment represents a charge and relates to a litigation settlement of certain BTS related lawsuits. Management removes the amount of the litigation settlement charge from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the year-to-date period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

2013 Restructuring charges– This adjustment represents a charge and relates to the severance of certain employees and an office closure as a result of the integration activities following the acquisition of Pioneer. Management removes the amount of these nonrecurring costs from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the year-to-date period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

2013 Acquisition expenses – This adjustment represents a charge and relates to certain costs associated with the acquisition of Pioneer. Management removes the amount of these nonrecurring costs from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the year-to-date period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

2013 Integration expenses – This adjustment represents a charge and relates to certain expenses associated with the integration of Pioneer. Management removes the amount of these nonrecurring costs from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the year-to-date period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

2012 Litigation settlement charge – This adjustment represents a charge and relates to a litigation settlement of certain BTS related lawsuits. Management removes the amount of the litigation settlement charge from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the prior year periods to supplement a comparison to the Company’s current operating performance.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP net (loss) income applicable to common shares and non-GAAP net (loss) income per fully diluted share should not be considered in isolation, or as a replacement for GAAP measures.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

The Company believes that presenting non-GAAP net (loss) income applicable to common shares and non-GAAP net (loss) income per fully diluted share in addition to the related GAAP measures provide investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial decision-making which excludes the inventory purchase price adjustment, acquisition expenses, integration expenses and litigation settlement charges. The Company further believes that providing this information better enables RTI Surgical’s investors to understand the Company’s overall core performance and to evaluate the methodology used by management to assess and measure such performance.

Fiscal 2014 and First Quarter Outlook

Full year net (loss) income per fully diluted common share is expected to be in the range of ($0.01) to $0.01, based on 57 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Excluding certain purchase accounting adjustments to be taken in the first quarter of 2014, full year net income per fully diluted common share is expected to be in the range of $0.06 to $0.08.

First quarter net loss per fully diluted common share is expected to be $0.07, based on 56.8 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Excluding certain purchase accounting adjustments, first quarter net income per fully diluted common share is expected to be $0.00.
