WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2018-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2018.

Second quarter 2018 net revenues were $609.9 million, an increase of 15.4% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, second quarter 2018 net revenues increased 12.4% over the year ago period.

Second quarter 2018 GAAP loss per share from continuing operations was ($0.06), as compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.67 in the prior year period. The decrease in GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations is due to $57.8 million of restructuring, restructuring related and impairment charges, which primarily related to the Company's 2018 footprint realignment plan, and $25.7 million of contingent consideration expense. Second quarter 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 21.1% to $2.47, compared to $2.04 in the prior year period.

Liam Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “While Teleflex's constant currency revenue growth during the second quarter fell short of our expectations, this was primarily due to the timing of orders received from distributors, as well as certain product constraints associated with key suppliers. However, we were still able to achieve adjusted earnings per share of $2.47, which is an increase of 21.1%. In addition, I am pleased to report that in the recent weeks, orders and revenue rebounded, and therefore, we continue to estimate that full year constant currency revenue growth will be between 12% and 13%.”

Added Mr. Kelly, “We continued to see strong performance from NeoTract, which generated approximately $48 million in revenue during the second quarter, representing growth of approximately 58%. Urolift continues to generate strong physician adoption, and its second quarter revenues, inclusion in the AUA Guidelines and continued expansion of published clinical evidence give us increased confidence in its short and long-term growth trajectory, and as such, we are raising our revenue expectations for NeoTract as we now believe it will grow approximately 50% over 2017 levels."

In closing, Mr. Kelly stated, “Notwithstanding recent volatility in foreign currency exchange rates, I am pleased to report that we are maintaining our previously provided full year adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance range of between $9.70 and $9.90.”

2018 OUTLOOK

The Company lowered its full year 2018 GAAP revenue growth guidance range from a range of between 15% and 16% to a range of between 14% and 15%. The Company's previous 2018 GAAP revenue growth guidance range reflected an anticipated 3% favorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, while the Company's revised 2018 GAAP revenue growth guidance range reflects an anticipated 2% favorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. On a constant currency basis, the Company reaffirmed its full year 2018 guidance range of between 12% and 13% over the prior year.

The Company lowered its full year 2018 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations guidance from a range of between $5.45 and $5.55 to a range of between $4.60 and $4.70, reflecting the impact of additional restructuring and contingent consideration expenses. The Company reaffirmed its full year 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations guidance range of between $9.70 and $9.90, reflecting our expectation of an approximately 5% positive impact from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

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: adjusted diluted earnings per share and constant currency revenue growth. 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 historical adjusted diluted earnings per share to historical GAAP diluted earnings per share are set forth below. Tables reconciling changes in historical constant currency net revenues to historical GAAP net revenues are set forth above under “Second Quarter Net Revenue by Segment”. Tables reconciling forecasted 2018 constant currency revenue growth and forecasted 2018 adjusted earnings per share to their respective most directly comparable forecasted GAAP measures, forecasted 2018 revenue growth and forecasted 2018 diluted earnings per share available to common stockholders, are set forth above under “2018 Outlook.”

Adjusted diluted earnings per share: This non-GAAP measure is based upon diluted earnings per share available to common stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, adjusted to exclude, depending on the period presented, the impact (net of tax) of (i) restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items; (ii) acquisition, integration and divestiture related items; (iii) other items identified in note (C) to each of the reconciliation tables for quarters ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, and for the six months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, respectively, set forth below; (iv) amortization of debt discount on convertible notes; (v) intangible amortization expense; (vi) loss on extinguishment of debt and (vii) tax adjustments. Management does not believe that any of the excluded items are indicative of our underlying core performance or business trends.

In addition, the calculation of the weighted average number of diluted shares within adjusted earnings per share for the 2017 period gives effect to the anti-dilutive impact of shares due to the Company under its previously outstanding convertible note hedge agreements. The convertible note hedge agreements reduced the potential economic dilution that otherwise would have occurred upon conversion of the Company’s senior subordinated convertible notes (under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of the convertible note hedge agreements was not reflected in the weighted average number of diluted shares). We believe that an adjustment to show the anti-dilutive effect of the convertible note hedge agreements provides supplemental information that can be useful to investors in assessing the computation of diluted earnings per share.

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.

(A) 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 a specific 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. For the three months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, pre-tax restructuring related charges were $3.6 million and $3.0 million, respectively. For the three months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, pre-tax impairment charges were $1.9 million and $0 million, respectively.

(B) 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 facilities that ultimately were not utilized. For the three months ended July 1, 2018, the majority of these charges were related to contingent consideration liabilities and our acquisition of NeoTract. For the three months ended July 2, 2017, the majority of these charges were related to our acquisition of Vascular Solutions. Divestiture related activities involve specific business or asset sales. Depending primarily on the terms of the 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. There were no divestiture related activities for the periods presented.

(C) Other items - These are discrete items that occur sporadically and can affect period-to-period comparisons. For the three months ended July 1, 2018, these items 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 the organizational structure (with, pursuant to tax law, retroactive impact back to 2017), and as a result of which 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, and the adjustment eliminating the charge is included in the table above among "Other Items" for the 2018 period. We will continue to evaluate the TCJA over the next several months, which may result in further adjustments. For the three months ended July 2, 2017, other items included income associated with a litigation settlement.

(D) Amortization of debt discount on convertible notes - When we sold $400 million principal amount of our 3.875% convertible notes (the “convertible notes”) in 2010, we allocated the proceeds between the liability and equity components of the debt, in accordance with GAAP. As a result, the $83.7 million difference between the proceeds of the sale of the convertible notes and the liability component of the debt constituted a debt discount that was to be amortized to interest expense over the approximately seven-year term of the convertible notes, which significantly increased the amount we recorded as interest expense attributable to the convertible notes. The amount of the amortization of the debt discount was reduced as a result of our repurchases of convertible notes in 2016 and 2017 and redemptions of the convertible notes by holders of the notes, although we continued to amortize the remaining portion of the debt discount to interest expense until August 2017, when all remaining convertible notes were either converted or matured.

(E) 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.

(F) Loss on extinguishment of debt - In connection with debt refinancings, debt repayments, repurchases of convertible notes and redemptions of convertible notes, outstanding indebtedness is extinguished. These events, which have occurred from time to time on an irregular basis, have resulted in losses reflecting, among other things, unamortized debt issuance costs, as well as debt prepayment fees and premiums (including conversion premiums resulting from conversion of convertible securities).

(G) 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 changes affecting our deferred tax liability.

(H) Adjusted diluted shares are calculated by giving effect to the anti-dilutive impact of the Company’s convertible note hedge agreements, which reduced the potential economic dilution that otherwise would have occurred upon conversion of the Company's convertible notes. Under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of the convertible note hedge agreements is not reflected in the weighted average number of diluted shares.

(I) We recorded a GAAP net loss in the second quarter 2018. Because any increase in the weighted average number of shares would decrease the loss per share and would therefore be antidilutive, the same weighted average number of shares was utilized to calculate both GAAP loss per share and GAAP diluted loss per share. However, on an adjusted basis, we realized net income. Therefore, in calculating adjusted earnings per share, we increased the weighted average number of shares outstanding to include dilutive securities.

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. For the six months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, pre-tax restructuring related charges were $5.7 million and $7.1 million, respectively. For the six months ended July 1, 2018 and July 2, 2017, pre-tax impairment charges were $1.9 million and $0 million, respectively.

(B) 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 facilities that ultimately were not utilized. For the six months ended July 1, 2018, the majority of these charges were related to contingent consideration liabilities and our acquisitions of Vascular Solutions and NeoTract. For the six months ended July 2, 2017, the majority of these charges were related to our acquisition of Vascular Solutions. Divestiture related activities involve specific business or asset sales. Depending primarily on the terms of the 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. There were no divestiture related activities for the periods presented.

(C) Other items - These are discrete items that occur sporadically and can affect period-to-period comparisons. For the six months ended July 1, 2018, these items 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 the organizational structure (with, pursuant to tax law, retroactive impact back to 2017), and as a result of which 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, and the adjustment eliminating the charge is included in the table above among "Other Items" for the 2018 period. We will continue to evaluate the TCJA over the next several months, which may result in further adjustments. For the six months ended July 2, 2017, other items included income associated with a litigation settlement.

(D) Amortization of debt discount on convertible notes - When we sold $400 million principal amount of our 3.875% convertible notes (the “convertible notes”) in 2010, we allocated the proceeds between the liability and equity components of the debt, in accordance with GAAP. As a result, the $83.7 million difference between the proceeds of the sale of the convertible notes and the liability component of the debt constituted a debt discount that was to be amortized to interest expense over the approximately seven-year term of the convertible notes, which significantly increased the amount we recorded as interest expense attributable to the convertible notes. The amount of the amortization of the debt discount was reduced as a result of our repurchases of convertible notes in 2016 and 2017 and redemptions of the convertible notes by holders of the notes, although we continued to amortize the remaining portion of the debt discount to interest expense until August 2017, when all remaining convertible notes were either converted or matured.

(E) 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.

(F) Loss on extinguishment of debt - In connection with debt refinancings, debt repayments, repurchases of convertible notes and redemptions of convertible notes, outstanding indebtedness is extinguished. These events, which have occurred from time to time on an irregular basis, have resulted in losses reflecting, among other things, unamortized debt issuance costs, as well as debt prepayment fees and premiums (including conversion premiums resulting from conversion of convertible securities).

(G) 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 changes affecting our deferred tax liability.

(H) Adjusted diluted shares are calculated by giving effect to the anti-dilutive impact of the Company’s convertible note hedge agreements, which reduced the potential economic dilution that otherwise would have occurred upon conversion of the Company's convertible notes. Under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of the convertible note hedge agreements is not reflected in the weighted average number of diluted shares.
