WAYNE, Pa., Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2019.

Third quarter 2019 net revenues were $648.3 million, an increase of 6.3% compared to the prior year period.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, third quarter 2019 net revenues increased 8.0% over the year ago period.

Third quarter 2019 GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations were $4.85, compared to GAAP earnings per share of $1.21 in the prior year period.  Third quarter 2019 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 17.9% to $2.97, compared to $2.52 in the prior year period.

Liam Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The third quarter of 2019 was another excellent one for the Company, as we generated upper-single digit constant currency revenue growth, while also achieving significant year-over-year, and sequential, gross and operating margin expansion."

Mr. Kelly continued, "Similar to our first half of 2019 results, during the third quarter we continued to see strength across nearly every global product category and geographic region.  Based on the strong performance during the first nine months of the year, as well as our expectations for the fourth quarter, we are once again increasing our full year constant currency revenue growth guidance from a range of between 7.5% and 8%, to a range of between 8% and 8.25%."

Mr. Kelly concluded, "In addition to strong third quarter top-line performance, we were also able to increase our adjusted earnings per share by 17.9%, despite a greater negative impact from foreign currency exchange rate volatility than we had previously expected.  Based on our financial performance during the first nine months of the year, coupled with our projections for the fourth quarter, we are narrowing our full year adjusted earnings per share guidance from a range of between $10.90 and $11.10, to a range of between $11.05 and $11.10.  In summary, Teleflex continues to perform at a high level, which gives me even more confidence in the Company's ability to achieve our previously provided long-term financial objectives, and in doing so, deliver on our commitments to our shareholders, our customers, and our employees."

2019 OUTLOOK

The Company lowered its full year 2019 revenue guidance range from an increase of between 6% and 6.5% over the prior year on a GAAP basis to a range of between 5.75% and 6.0% over the prior year on a GAAP basis. The Company increased its estimate of the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on full year 2019 revenues from approximately 1.5% to approximately 2.25%. The Company raised its full year 2019 revenue guidance on a constant currency basis from a range of between 7.5% and 8% to a range of between 8.0% and 8.25%.

The Company raised its full year 2019 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations guidance from a range of between $6.82 and $6.94 to a range of between $9.85 and $9.90. The increase in the full year 2019 GAAP diluted earnings per share range is primarily due to a discrete tax benefit, recognized in the third quarter, resulting from a non-U.S. legal entity restructuring that eliminated the need to provide for foreign withholding taxes on the future repatriations of earnings of non-U.S. affiliates. The Company narrowed its adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations from a range of between $10.90 and $11.10 to a range of between $11.05 and $11.10 for full year 2019, representing an increase of between 11.6% and 12.1% over 2018, and reflecting our estimate of an approximately 4.25% negative impact from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Segment results and commentary exclude the impact of discontinued operations.

NOTES ON NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, commonly referred to as “GAAP.”  In this press release, we provide supplemental information, consisting of the following non-GAAP financial measures: constant currency revenue growth and adjusted diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP measures are described in more detail below.  Management uses these financial measures to assess Teleflex’s financial performance, make operating decisions, allocate financial resources, provide guidance on possible future results, and assist in its evaluation of period-to-period and peer comparisons. The non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors because they provide insight into management’s assessment of our business, and provide supplemental information pertinent to a comparison of period-to-period results of our ongoing operations.  The non-GAAP financial measures are presented in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Moreover, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Tables reconciling changes in historical constant currency net revenues to historical GAAP net revenues are set forth above under “Net Revenue by Segment."  Tables reconciling historical adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to historical GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations are set forth below.  Tables reconciling forecasted 2019 constant currency revenue growth and forecasted 2019 adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to their respective most directly comparable forecasted GAAP measures, which are forecasted 2019 GAAP revenue growth and forecasted 2019 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, respectively, are set forth above under “2019 Outlook.”

Constant currency revenue growth: This non-GAAP measure is based upon net revenues, adjusted to eliminate the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. The impact of changes in foreign currency may vary significantly from period to period, and generally are outside of the control of our management. We believe that this measure facilitates a comparison of our operating performance exclusive of currency exchange rate fluctuations that do not reflect our underlying performance or business trends.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share: This non-GAAP measure is based upon diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, adjusted to exclude, depending on the period presented, the items described below. Management does not believe that any of the excluded items are indicative of our underlying core performance or business trends.

Restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items - Restructuring programs involve discrete initiatives designed to, among other things, consolidate or relocate manufacturing, administrative and other facilities, outsource distribution operations, improve operating efficiencies and integrate acquired businesses. Depending on the specific restructuring program involved, our restructuring charges may include employee termination, contract termination, facility closure, employee relocation, equipment relocation, outplacement and other exit costs associated with the restructuring program.  Restructuring related charges are directly related to our restructuring programs and consist of facility consolidation costs, including accelerated depreciation expense related to facility closures, costs to transfer manufacturing operations between locations, and retention bonuses offered to certain employees as an incentive for them to remain with our company after completion of the restructuring program. Impairment charges occur if, due to events or changes in circumstances, we determine that the carrying value of an asset exceeds its fair value. Impairment charges do not directly affect our liquidity, but could have a material adverse effect on our reported financial results.

Acquisition, integration and divestiture related items - Acquisition and integration expenses are incremental charges, other than restructuring or restructuring related expenses, that are directly related to specific business or asset acquisition transactions.  These charges may include, among other things, professional, consulting and other fees; systems integration costs; legal entity restructuring expense; inventory step-up amortization (amortization, through cost of goods sold, of the increase in fair value of inventory resulting from a fair value calculation as of the acquisition date); fair value adjustments to contingent consideration liabilities; and bridge loan facility and backstop financing fees in connection with loan facilities that ultimately were not utilized. Divestiture related activities involve specific business or asset sales.  Depending primarily on the terms of a divestiture transaction, the carrying value of the divested business or assets on our financial statements and other costs we incur as a direct result of the divestiture transaction, we may recognize a gain or loss in connection with the divestiture related activities.

Other items - These are discrete items that occur sporadically and can affect period-to-period comparisons. See footnote C to the reconciliation tables set forth below.

European medical device regulation - The European Union (“EU”) has adopted the EU Medical Device Regulation (“MDR”), which replaces the existing Medical Devices Directive (“MDD”) and imposes more stringent requirements for the marketing and sale of medical devices in the EU, including requirements affecting clinical evaluations, quality systems and post-market surveillance.  Manufacturers of currently marketed medical devices will have until May 2020 to meet the MDR requirements, although certain devices that previously satisfied MDD requirements can continue to be marketed in the EU until May 2024, subject to certain limitations.  Significantly, the MDR will require the re-registration of previously approved medical devices.  As a result, Teleflex will incur expenditures in connection with the new registration of medical devices that previously had been registered under the MDD. Therefore, these expenditures are not considered to be ordinary course expenditures in connection with regulatory matters (in contrast, no adjustment has been made to exclude expenditures related to the registration of medical devices that were not registered previously under the MDD).

Intangible amortization expense - Certain intangible assets, including customer relationships, intellectual property, distribution rights, trade names and non-competition agreements, initially are recorded at historical cost and then amortized over their respective estimated useful lives. The amount of such amortization can vary from period to period as a result of, among other things, business or asset acquisitions or dispositions.

Tax adjustments - These adjustments represent the impact of the expiration of applicable statutes of limitations for prior year returns, the resolution of audits, the filing of amended returns with respect to prior tax years and/or tax law or certain other discrete changes affecting our deferred tax liability.

(A) Restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items - For the nine months ended September 29, 2019 pre-tax restructuring charges were $13.4 million, pre-tax restructuring related charges were $11.0 million, and pre-tax impairment charges were $6.9 million.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, pre-tax restructuring charges were $58.5 million, pre-tax restructuring related charges were $10.3 million, and pre-tax impairment charges were $19.1 million.
(B) Acquisition, integration and divestiture related items - For the nine months ended September 29, 2019,  these charges primarily related to contingent consideration liabilities and our acquisition of Essential Medical, Inc., partially offset by the gain on sale of a business and another asset. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, these charges primarily related to contingent consideration liabilities and our acquisition of NeoTract, Inc.  There were no divestiture related activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.
(C) Other items - For the nine months ended September 29, 2019, other items included debt modification expenses, expenses associated with a franchise tax audit, and product relabeling costs, somewhat offset by a credit associated with an insurance settlement. Other items for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 included the reversal of previously recognized income due to distributor acquisitions related to Vascular Solutions and relabeling costs. In addition, these items included a charge we incurred as a result of our continuing evaluation of the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA") on our consolidated operations.  During the second quarter of 2018, we identified provisions of the TCJA that could have adverse consequences due to our organization structure.  We implemented certain changes in our organization structure (pursuant to applicable tax law, these changes retroactively affected the 2017 tax year), and as a result, we incurred a $1.9 million net worth tax in a foreign jurisdiction with respect to the 2017 tax year.  Because the decision to make the change resulting in the net worth tax occurred in the second quarter of 2018, and as permitted under GAAP, we recorded the net worth tax charge in 2018; the adjustment eliminating the charge is included in the table above among "Other Items" for the 2018 period.
(D) MDR - For the nine months ended September 29, 2019, these costs were associated with our efforts to comply with the European Medical Device Regulation. The costs associated with the European Medical Device Regulation initiative include $0.3 million that were a component of the "Other items" line item in the reconciliation table for the three months ended March 31, 2019 included in our first quarter 2019 earnings release.
