First Quarter Financial Results

Net sales increased 6% during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 to $707.4 million compared to net sales of $664.6 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Excluding the effect of foreign currency, net sales increased 10% during the first quarter. U.S. net sales increased 9% to $452.2 million during the first quarter, while Europe net sales decreased 4% (increased 9% constant currency) to $142.9 million and International (primarily Canada, South America, Mexico and the Pacific Rim) net sales increased 11% (14% constant currency) to $112.3 million.

Special items (pre-tax) for the fiscal first quarter totaled $122.7 million, including $74.7 million of non-cash amortization expense related to the 2007 Merger and $48.0 million of special items, primarily associated with the Trauma Acquisition and the Company’s stock-based compensation modification.

Reported operating income during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $69.0 million compared to operating income of $72.7 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Excluding special items, adjusted operating income totaled $191.7 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, compared to $182.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Excluding special items, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) was $237.8 million, or 33.6% of net sales during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, compared to $226.6 million, or 34.1% of net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Interest expense during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 totaled $117.1 million compared to $125.4 million during the first quarter of the prior year, primarily due to lower average interest rates on our term loans.

Reported cash flow from operations totaled $85.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, as compared to reported cash flow from operations of $123.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Free cash flow (operating cash flow of $85.5 million minus capital expenditures of $53.1 million) was $32.4 million, which reflected $62.5 million of cash interest paid in the quarter compared to free cash flow (operating cash flow of $123.1 million minus capital expenditures of $39.2 million) of $83.9 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, which reflected $55.0 million of cash interest paid.

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company utilized cash on hand of $280 million to fund the Trauma Acquisition. In addition, we initiated various debt refinancing activities during the quarter, which are expected to be completed during our fiscal second quarter of 2013. At August 31, 2012, reported gross debt was approximately $6.282 billion, and cash and cash equivalents, as defined in the Company’s Credit Agreement dated September 25, 2007, totaled $619.2 million, resulting in net debt of $5.663 billion, compared to $5.335 billion at May 31, 2012.

Biomet’s senior secured leverage ratio as of August 31, 2012 was 2.55 times the last twelve months (“LTM”) adjusted EBITDA, as defined by our credit agreement, compared to 2.70 times at May 31, 2012 and 4.01 times at May 31, 2008. The total (net debt) leverage ratio was 5.43 times LTM adjusted EBITDA at August 31, 2012, compared to 5.17 times at May 31, 2012 and 6.97 times at May 31, 2008.

Biomet’s President and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey R. Binder stated, “Overall, I’m generally pleased with our results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The completion of the trauma acquisition bolsters our S.E.T. product category to annualized sales in excess of $500 million in an attractive segment of the orthopaedic market. The team has executed well on the integration and our investment in building a great S.E.T. business is paying off. We did experience some deceleration in growth for our hip and knee business, but until others report their results we won’t know whether market growth has slowed or our growth has come back to market.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Those statements are often indicated by the use of words such as “will,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “plan” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve certain risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward looking statements due to, among others, the following factors: the success of the Company’s principal product lines; the results of the ongoing investigation by the United States Department of Justice; the ability to successfully implement new technologies; the Company’s ability to sustain sales and earnings growth; the Company’s success in achieving timely approval or clearance of its products with domestic and foreign regulatory entities; the impact to the business as a result of compliance with federal, state and foreign governmental regulations and with the Deferred Prosecution Agreement and Corporate Integrity Agreement; the impact to the business as a result of the economic downturn in both foreign and domestic markets; the impact of federal health care reform; the impact of anticipated changes in the musculoskeletal industry and the ability of the Company to react to and capitalize on those changes; the ability of the Company to successfully implement its desired organizational changes and cost-saving initiatives; the ability of the Company to successfully integrate the Trauma Acquisition; the impact to the business as a result of the Company’s significant international operations, including, among others, with respect to foreign currency fluctuations and the success of the Company’s transition of certain manufacturing operations to China; the impact of the Company’s managerial changes; the ability of the Company’s customers to receive adequate levels of reimbursement from third-party payors; the Company’s ability to maintain its existing intellectual property rights and obtain future intellectual property rights; the impact to the business as a result of cost containment efforts of group purchasing organizations; the Company’s ability to retain existing independent sales agents for its products; the impact of product liability litigation losses; and other factors set forth in the Company’s filings with the SEC, including the Company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Although the Company believes that the assumptions on which the forward-looking statements contained herein are based are reasonable, any of those assumptions could prove to be inaccurate given the inherent uncertainties as to the occurrence or non-occurrence of future events.

Accordingly, the reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date on which they were made.

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as net sales excluding the impact of foreign currency (constant currency), operating income as adjusted, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) as adjusted, net income as adjusted, gross profit as adjusted, selling, general and administrative expense as adjusted, research and development expense as adjusted, cash and cash equivalents (as defined by our credit agreement), net debt, senior secured leverage ratio, total leverage ratio , free cash flow, and unlevered free cash flow. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included elsewhere in the press release.

The term “adjusted” or “as adjusted,” a non-GAAP financial measure, refers to financial performance measures that exclude certain income statement line items, such as interest, taxes, depreciation or amortization, other (income) expense, and/or exclude certain expenses as defined by our credit agreement, such as restructuring charges, non-cash impairment charges, integration and facilities opening costs or other business optimization expenses, new systems design and implementation costs, certain start-up costs and costs related to consolidation of facilities, certain non-cash charges, advisory fees paid to the Company’s private equity owners, certain severance charges, purchase accounting costs, stock-based compensation, litigation costs, and other related charges.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP in the United States. Biomet management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors; however, this additional non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation

A reconciliation of reported results to adjusted results is included in this press release, which is also posted on Biomet’s website: www.biomet.com

Reclassifications

LVB Acquisition, Inc. is indirectly owned by investment partnerships directly or indirectly advised or managed by The Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs & Co., Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and TPG Global.

Trauma Acquisition

On May 24, 2012, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. accepted the Company’s binding offer to purchase certain assets representing substantially all of DePuy’s worldwide trauma business (“Trauma Acquisition”), which involves researching, developing, manufacturing, marketing, distributing and selling products to treat certain bone fractures or deformities in the human body, including certain intellectual property assets, and to assume certain liabilities, for approximately $280.0 million in cash. On June 15, 2012, the Company announced the initial closing of the transaction, acquiring DePuy’s trauma operations in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, as well as DePuy’s trauma manufacturing operations in Le Locle, Switzerland. On July 13, 2012, the Company closed in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, Italy and the Switzerland non-manufacturing unit. In August, the Company closed on ten additional countries including China. Subsequent closings for the remaining countries will occur on a staggered basis and, in general, are expected to be completed within six months of the initial closing. DePuy affiliates will serve as the Company’s interim distributors in these countries until these operations are fully transitioned to the Company. The Company acquired the DePuy worldwide trauma business to strengthen its trauma business and to continue to build a stronger presence in the global trauma market.
