(a) Comparable basis adjustments for 2016 exclude the results of Nuvectra prior to its spin-off on March 14, 2016. Comparable basis amounts for 2015 exclude Nuvectra results for the entire period and include the former Lake Region Medical results prior to its acquisition on October 27, 2015. Our historical pro forma information presentation, which was filed with the SEC on Form 8-K on February 29, 2016, contains a reconciliation of 2015 comparable basis amounts to as reported amounts.
(b) Refer to Tables A and B at the end of this release for reconciliations of as reported and comparable basis adjusted amounts to GAAP.

Discussion of Financial and Operational Results for the Fourth Quarter
Throughout this press release, we are providing comparable basis amounts, which adjust as reported 2016 amounts to exclude the results of Nuvectra prior to its spin-off on March 14, 2016 and to adjust 2015 as reported results to exclude the results of Nuvectra and include the results of the former Lake Region Medical, which was acquired in October 2015. See our historical pro forma information presentation, which was filed with the SEC on Form 8-K on February 29, 2016, for a reconciliation of 2015 comparable basis amounts to reported amounts.

As a result of the Lake Region Medical acquisition and spin-off of Nuvectra, during 2016 we reorganized our operations including our internal management and financial reporting structure. This reorganization was completed in the fourth quarter of 2016. As a result, we revised our reportable business segments and are now disclosing two reportable segments: (1) Medical and (2) Non-Medical. Our Medical segment includes the operations of our former Lake Region Medical segment, the remaining operations of our QiG segment after the spin-off, and the portion of the previously reported Greatbatch Medical segment not included in the Non-Medical segment. Our Non-Medical segment includes our Electrochem business, which was previously included in our Greatbatch Medical segment. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the new segment reporting presentation. We are still refining the way we classify product line sales, which may impact the way future product line sales are reported, but will not change total sales.

Sales and Gross Profit

  • Total GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $359.6 million, a 13% increase over the fourth quarter of the prior year, primarily driven by the acquisition of Lake Region Medical. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations did not materially impact our sales for the fourth quarter of 2016, but are expected to have a more material impact in 2017. On a comparable organic constant currency basis, fourth quarter 2016 revenues were flat compared with the fourth quarter of 2015.

    -- Cardio & Vascular GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $142.4 million, a 34% increase over the fourth quarter of the prior year, primarily driven by the acquisition of Lake Region Medical. On a comparable organic constant currency basis, Cardio & Vascular revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 increased by 7% over the comparable period of the prior year, primarily driven by increased customer demand for electrophysiology and vascular access products.

    -- Cardiac & Neuromodulation GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $104.9 million, a 2% decrease over the fourth quarter of the prior year. On a comparable organic constant currency basis, Cardiac & Neuromodulation revenue decreased 5%. The year-over-year decrease is primarily driven by higher demand in the fourth quarter of 2015 as certain customers accelerated shipments prior to year-end in order to meet contractual terms. Additionally, Cardiac & Neuromodulation sales were impacted by contractual price reductions given in exchange for longer-term volume commitments.

    -- Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics & Portable Medical GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $101.9 million, a 10% increase over the fourth quarter of the prior year, primarily driven by the acquisition of Lake Region Medical. On a comparable organic constant currency basis, Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics & Portable Medical revenue decreased 3% year-over-year, primarily driven by a reduction in demand for certain products, as well as contractual price reductions given in exchange for longer-term volume commitments.

    -- Non-Medical GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $11.3 million, a 14% decrease over the fourth quarter of the prior year, primarily reflecting the slowdown in the energy markets. Non-Medical GAAP revenue increased 28% over the sequential third quarter of 2016, reflecting the stabilization of our energy business.

  • Consolidated GAAP gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $92.9 million, or 25.8% of sales, a 27% increase over the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily driven by the acquisition of Lake Region Medical. On a comparable basis, fourth quarter 2016 gross profit increased 20% over the prior year fourth quarter primarily due to $23.0 million of inventory step-up amortization recorded in 2015 in connection with the acquisition of Lake Region Medical. Excluding this amortization, gross profit declined $7.4 million on a comparable basis primarily due to contractual price reductions given in exchange for longer-term volume commitments and the impact of higher warranty reserves and inventory obsolescence write-offs caused by various customer returns and field actions during the quarter.

Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, and Earnings per Share

  • GAAP Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $7.9 million on an as reported and comparable results basis, an increase of $32.8 million and $55.4 million respectively over the fourth quarter of the prior year, reflecting lower transaction related costs in connection with our acquisition of Lake Region Medical.

  • Adjusted Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2016 declined 2% on an as reported and comparable results basis from the fourth quarter of the prior year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $70.5 million on an as reported and comparable results basis, a 2% increase and an 11% decrease respectively compared with the fourth quarter of 2015. The decrease in comparable results reflects the decline in gross profit discussed above.

  • GAAP diluted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $0.25 per share compared to a loss of $0.85 per share for the fourth quarter of 2015 and a loss of $1.54 per share on a comparable results basis for the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-over-year improvement in GAAP diluted EPS was primarily driven by lower transaction related costs in connection with our acquisition of Lake Region Medical.

  • Adjusted diluted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $0.87 per share, a 5% decline over the fourth quarter of 2015 on an as reported basis. This year-over-year decrease reflects the lower gross profit discussed above. On a comparable results basis, adjusted diluted EPS was flat year-over-year.

  • Achieved synergies of $10 million during the quarter and $34 million of cumulative annual run-rate synergies since the acquisition, ahead of our initial $25 million estimate and within the range provided last quarter.

Cash Flows

  • Cash flows provided by operating activities for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $34 million. Cash flows from operations during the fourth quarter of 2016 reflects a $37 million decrease in inventory that was primarily driven by our working capital reduction initiatives, $34 million of interest payments on outstanding debt obligations and $12 million of consolidation, IP-related litigation, acquisition, integration, and spin-off related costs.

  • Capital expenditures were $11 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 and $59 million for the full year.

  • Repaid $17 million of outstanding debt during the fourth quarter of 2016 bringing total debt repayment to $46 million for the year.

Business Outlook

Our current full-year 2017 outlook is as follows (in millions, except for per share amounts):

GAAP Adjusted Basis
High Low High Low
Revenue $1,430 $1,390 $1,430 $1,390
Earnings per Diluted Share $1.50 $1.10 $3.10 $2.70

Except as described below, further reconciliations by line item to the closest corresponding GAAP financial measures for Adjusted Basis Earnings per Diluted Share, included in our “Business Outlook” above, are not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and visibility of the charges excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure.

Adjusted EPS for 2017 is expected to consist of GAAP Net Income and EPS, excluding items such as intangible amortization ($44 million), IP related litigation costs, and consolidation, acquisition, integration, and asset disposition/write-down charges totaling approximately $72 million. The after-tax impact of these items is estimated to be approximately $50 million, or approximately $1.60 per diluted share.

Selected Financial Guidance Items Affecting Cash Flow

  • Capital expenditures in the range of $50 million to $60 million for the year.
  • Depreciation and amortization in the range of $95 million to $100 million for the year.
  • Stock-based compensation expected to be approximately $15 million for the year.
  • Working capital expected to decline $10 million to $20 million for the year, when compared to the prior year.
  • Other operating expense expected to be $18 million to $22 million for the year. A significant decrease from the $62 million incurred in 2016, reflecting lower consolidation, integration and spin-off related charges.
  • Fiscal year 2017 adjusted effective tax rate expected to be approximately 25%; cash taxes expected to be approximately $10 million for the year.

Other Business & Operational Highlights

  • Amended the Company’s senior secured credit agreement providing the Company with further financial flexibility to operate the business and improve its financial position.

  • Expanded relationship with Impulse Dynamics to co-develop its next generation lead system for Cardiac Contractility Modulation therapy to treat moderate-to-severe heart failure. The co-development agreement leverages Integer’s existing technology platform allowing Impulse Dynamics to deliver a fully customized lead solution to the market 12 to 16 months earlier than developing one on their own. The companies also agreed to negotiate a supply agreement for the associated products under the development agreement which may drive future revenue.

Notes Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to our results reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we provide adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted EBITDA and organic constant currency sales growth rates. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share consist of GAAP amounts adjusted for the following to the extent occurring during the period: (i) acquisition and integration related charges and expenses, (ii) amortization of intangible assets including inventory step-up amortization, (iii) facility consolidation, optimization, manufacturing transfer and system integration charges, (iv) asset write-down and disposition charges, (v) charges in connection with corporate realignments or a reduction in force, (vi) certain litigation expenses, charges and gains, (vii) unusual or infrequently occurring items, (viii) gain/loss on cost and equity method investments, (ix) the income tax (benefit) related to these adjustments and (x) certain tax items that are outside the normal provision for the period. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are calculated by dividing adjusted net income by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) plus (i) the same adjustments as listed above except for items (ix), and (x), (ii) GAAP stock-based compensation, interest expense, and depreciation, (iii) GAAP provision (benefit) for income taxes and (iv) cash gains received from cost and equity method investments during the period. To calculate organic constant currency sales growth rates, which exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, as well as the impact of any acquisitions or divestitures of product lines on sales growth rates, we convert current period sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using the previous periods’ foreign currency exchange rates and exclude the amount of sales acquired/divested during the period from the current/previous period amounts, respectively. Comparable basis amounts for 2016 exclude the results of Nuvectra prior to its spin-off on March 14, 2016. Comparable basis amounts for 2015 exclude the results of Nuvectra and include the results of the former Lake Region Medical prior to its acquisition on October 27, 2015. We believe that the presentation of adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, organic constant currency sales growth rates, and comparable basis amounts provides important supplemental information to management and investors seeking to understand the financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.

(a) The difference between pre-tax and net income (loss) amounts is the estimated tax impact related to the respective adjustment. Net income amounts are computed using a 35% U.S., Mexico, Germany, and France statutory tax rate, a 0% Swiss tax rate, a 20% Netherlands statutory tax rate, a 25% Uruguay statutory tax rate, and a 12.5% Ireland statutory tax rate. Expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes (i.e. permanent tax differences) are added back at 100%.
(b) In 2013, we filed suit against AVX Corporation alleging they were infringing our intellectual property. Given the complexity and significant costs incurred pursuing this litigation, we are excluding these litigation expenses from adjusted amounts. This matter proceeded to trial during the first quarter of 2016 and a federal jury awarded the Company $37.5 million in damages. To date, no gains have been recognized in connection with this litigation.
(c) During 2016 and 2015, we incurred costs primarily related to the transfer of our Beaverton, OR portable medical and Plymouth, MN vascular manufacturing operations to Tijuana, Mexico. Additionally, with the acquisition of Lake Region Medical, 2016 costs also include expenses incurred in connection with the closure of Lake Region Medical’s Arvada, CO, site and the consolidation of its two Galway, Ireland sites, which was initiated by Lake Region Medical in 2014.
(d) During 2016 and 2015, we incurred acquisition and integration costs related to the acquisition of Lake Region Medical, which was acquired in October 2015. During 2015, we incurred costs related to the integration of CCC Medical Devices, which was acquired in August 2014.
(e) Costs primarily include legal and professional fees incurred in connection with the spin-off of Nuvectra, which was completed in March 2016, as well as various asset disposition charges.
(f) During the third and fourth quarters of 2015 we recorded transaction costs (i.e. debt commitment fees, interest rate swap termination costs, debt extinguishment charges) in connection with our acquisition of Lake Region Medical.
(g) Tax adjustments for the 2016 periods include a discrete tax benefit related to certain transaction costs of the Lake Region Medical acquisition and the spin-off of Nuvectra recorded in the third quarter and a tax charge recorded in the fourth quarter in connection with the enactment of regulations under §987 of the Internal Revenue Code, which resulted in an adjustment to our deferred tax assets. For the 2015 fourth quarter, tax adjustments consist of the 2015 Federal R&D tax credit, which was enacted during that period and was permanently reinstated.
(h) The per share data in this table has been rounded to the nearest $0.01 and therefore may not sum to the total.
Comparable basis adjustments for 2016 represent the exclusion of the results of Nuvectra prior to its spin-off on March 14, 2016. Nuvectra’s 2016 revenue, tax benefit, adjusted net loss, and adjusted diluted EPS prior to its spin-off was $1.2 million, $1.8 million, $2.6 million, and a loss of $0.08 per share, respectively
(i) Comparable basis adjustments for the 2015 periods represent the exclusion of the Nuvectra results and the inclusion of the former Lake Region Medical results prior to its acquisition on October 27, 2015. Our historical pro forma information presentation, which was filed with the SEC on Form 8-K on February 29, 2016, contains a reconciliation of 2015 comparable basis amounts to as reported amounts.
(j) The as reported and comparable basis adjusted diluted weighted average shares for full year 2016 includes 249,000 potentially dilutive shares not included in the computation of diluted weighted average common shares for GAAP diluted EPS purposes because their effect would have been anti-dilutive given the Company’s net loss in the first and second quarters. Fourth quarter and full year 2015 as reported and comparable basis adjusted diluted weighted average shares include 947,000 and 941,000 additional shares, respectively, related to outstanding equity awards that were not dilutive for GAAP EPS purposes.
(k) Comparable basis diluted weighted average shares for the 2015 periods include the pro forma impact of shares issued in conjunction with the acquisition of Lake Region Medical as if the acquisition occurred at the beginning of the period. No adjustment is necessary for the 2016 periods, as shares issued for the acquisition are included in the Company’s outstanding shares in accordance with GAAP.

(a) Comparable basis adjustments for 2016 represent the exclusion of the results of Nuvectra prior to its spin-off on March 14, 2016. Nuvectra’s 2016 GAAP net loss, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA prior to its spin-off was $3.4 million, $4.9 million, and $3.7 million, respectively. Comparable basis adjustments for the 2015 periods represent the exclusion of the Nuvectra results for the entire period and the inclusion of the former Lake Region Medical results prior to its acquisition on October 27, 2015. Our historical pro forma information presentation, which was filed with the SEC on Form 8-K on February 29, 2016, contains a reconciliation of 2015 comparable basis amounts to as reported amounts.
