DJO Global Announces Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year End 2012

Reports record revenue results and significant improvements in operating income and cash flow from operating activities


SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DJO Global, Inc. ("DJO" or the "Company"), a leading global provider of medical device solutions for musculoskeletal health, vascular health and pain management, today announced financial results for its public reporting subsidiary, DJO Finance LLC ("DJOFL"), for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth Quarter Results

DJOFL achieved record net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $290.5 million, reflecting growth of 2.2 percent compared to net sales of $284.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were unfavorably impacted by $1.5 million related to changes in foreign currency exchange rates compared to the rates in effect in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates from rates in effect in the prior year period ("constant currency"), net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 2.8 percent compared to net sales for the fourth quarter of 2011.

For the fourth quarter of 2012, DJOFL reported a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $47.0 million, compared to a net loss of $148.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. As detailed in the attached financial tables, the results for the current and prior year fourth quarter periods were impacted by significant non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustments, although such adjustments were significantly lower in the current year period than in the prior year period.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income attributable to DJOFL plus interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for certain non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustment items as permitted in calculating covenant compliance under the Company's amended senior secured credit facility and the indentures governing its 8.75% second priority senior secured notes, its 9.875% and 7.75% senior notes and its 9.75% senior subordinated notes. Reconciliation between net loss and Adjusted EBITDA is included in the attached financial tables.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $71.6 million, or 24.7 percent of net sales, reflecting a decrease of 3.9 percent compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $74.5 million, or 26.2 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 was unfavorably impacted by $0.4million related to changes in foreign currency exchange rates compared to the rates in effect in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2011 included a $4.2 million benefit related to an adjustment to reduce deferred gross profit from intercompany sales of inventory. In constant currency and excluding the $4.2 million adjustment recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011, Adjusted EBITDA for the current quarter was $72.0 million, reflecting an increase of 2.4 percent compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $70.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Year-to-Date Results

DJOFL achieved record net sales of $1,129.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, reflecting growth of 5.1% compared to net sales of $1,074.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Net sales for 2012 were unfavorably impacted by changes in foreign currency exchange rates aggregating $15.3 million compared to the rates in effect in 2011. In constant currency, net sales for 2012 increased by 6.5% compared to net sales for 2011.

DJOFL's net sales for 2012 included net sales from businesses acquired in 2011. On a pro forma basis, as if the acquisitions of Circle City Medical, acquired in February 2011, and Dr. Comfort, acquired in April 2011, had both closed on January 1, 2011, net sales would have reflected growth of 4.5% on the basis of constant currency over pro forma net sales of $1,095.4 million for 2011.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, DJOFL reported a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $119.2 million, compared to a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $214.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. As detailed in the attached financial tables, the results for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 were impacted by significant non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustments. For the year ended December 31, 2012, DJOFL achieved operating income of $92.9 million, reflecting significant improvement compared to an operating loss of $92.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $271.0 million, or 24.0% of net sales, reflecting an increase of 2.5% compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $264.3 million, or 24.6% of net sales, for the year ended December 31, 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for 2012 was unfavorably impacted by $3.2million related to changes in foreign currency exchange rates compared to the rates in effect in 2011. In constant currency and pro forma for the acquisitions discussed above and excluding the $4.2 million adjustment recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011, Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $274.2 million, reflecting growth of 2.4% compared with pro forma Adjusted EBITDA of $267.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Including $1.6 million of preacquisition Adjusted EBITDA and $1.4 million of anticipated future cost savings related to recently acquired businesses, Adjusted EBITDA was $274.0 million, or 24.3 percent of net sales for the year ended December 31, 2012.

"We are pleased to end 2012 with full year constant currency growth in net sales of 4.5% compared to pro forma net sales for 2011. Our successful new product launches and improving commercial execution continue to drive strong momentum across most of our businesses and provide a solid foundation for incremental growth in 2013," said Mike Mogul, DJO's president and chief executive officer. "I want to especially congratulate our Bracing and Vascular, Surgical Implant and International teams, for delivering strong organic growth of 8.2%, 12.4% and 5.7%, respectively, in 2012. Although we continue to face market challenges in our Recovery Sciences business unit, with sales declining 2.3% in 2012 compared to 2011, the strength of the sales results from our other businesses compensated for those headwinds in 2012. As expected, our fourth quarter growth rates were impacted by the anniversary of the October 2011 launch of Exos and the first full quarter impact of the recent non-coverage decision by Medicare for TENS used to treat chronic low back pain ("CLBP"). We were very pleased to see average daily sales in the fourth quarter accelerate from average daily sales in the third quarter for all business segments, including Recovery Sciences.

"We were very excited to complete the acquisition of Exos right at year end and we welcome the Exos team to the DJO Global family. Because we were already the exclusive distribution partner for Exos, the merger will not impact our reported net sales, but is expected to increase our operating margins and operating income from the sale of Exos products, and importantly, permit us to participate more comprehensively in planning and executing many exciting new product development opportunities incorporating the Exos technology.

"We are also pleased to report strong constant currency Adjusted EBITDA results in the fourth quarter at 24.7% of net sales, the highest quarterly margin in 2012, in spite of our continuing investments in new product development and launch activities and to expand and strengthen our commercial organization.

"Having just finished a highly successful global sales meeting, we continue to be very optimistic about incremental opportunities to add value to our customers and to further accelerate DJO's revenue growth. While it's great that we are achieving our short-term revenue growth targets of mid-single digits, we remain very keenly focused on continuing to enhance our customers' experience by developing and launching innovative new products and by striving for continuous improvement in our commercial execution.

"We have a very exciting slate of new products for 2013 that we will begin to launch late in the first quarter. We expect these new products and other ongoing commercial initiatives to drive incremental top line growth beginning in the second quarter of 2013, and we are targeting total company full year revenue growth rates of at least 5% for the full 2013 year. As it relates specifically to the first quarter of 2013, we expect total company revenue growth rates to continue to be somewhat muted by the impact of the Medicare CLBP decision and the anniversary dates of certain new products launched in 2012.

"For the full 2013 year, we expect to absorb the impact of both the Medicare CLBP decision and the new Medical Device Excise Tax ("MDET") and still deliver growth in Adjusted EBITDA that is at least as high as our revenue growth. For the first quarter, however, we expect Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margins to contract modestly from the prior year amounts, due to the impact of the MDET and the Medicare CLBP decision, along with increased operating expense investments related to upcoming product launches planned for the meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in March."

Sales by Business Segment

Net sales for DJO's Bracing and Vascular segment were $112.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, reflecting growth of 5.6%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, driven by strong contribution from the sales of new products and improving sales execution. For the full year of 2012, net sales for the Bracing and Vascular segment increased 8.2% on a pro forma basis over the full year of 2011.

Net sales for the Recovery Sciences segment contracted by 5.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 to $84.7 million, primarily reflecting the effects of the Medicare CLBP decision on the EMPI business unit and slow market conditions for capital equipment sold by our Chattanooga business. For the full year of 2012, net sales for the Recovery Sciences segment contracted 2.3% from net sales for the full year of 2011.

Fourth quarter net sales within the International segment were $73.9 million, reflecting an increase of 2.8% from the prior year period including the impact of $1.5 million of unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates from rates in effect in the fourth quarter of 2011. In constant currency, growth in net sales from the prior year fourth quarter was 4.9% for the International segment. For the full year of 2012, net sales for the International segment increased 5.7% on a constant currency basis over pro forma sales for the full year of 2011.

Net sales for the Surgical Implant segment were $19.8 million in the fourth quarter, reflecting an increase of 18.1% over net sales in the fourth quarter of 2011, driven by strong sales of the Company's shoulder products and other new products and strong sales execution. For the full year of 2012, net sales for the Surgical Implant segment increased 12.4% over 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had cash balances of $31.2 million and available liquidity of $97.0 million under its revolving line of credit. As previously announced, during the third quarter of 2012, the Company commenced a comprehensive refinancing which closed early in the fourth quarter. The refinancing included the issuance of $100.0 million tack-on 8.75% second priority senior secured notes due 2018, as well as $440.0 million of new 9.875% senior unsecured notes due 2018. The proceeds of the new issues were used: (1) to repay all amounts outstanding on DJOFL's revolving line of credit at the closing date, (2) to repay a portion of DJOFL's $465 million of 10.875% senior unsecured notes which were tendered to DJOFL prior to the closing date and (3) to pay premiums and expenses incurred in connection with the refinancing. DJOFL redeemed all remaining outstanding 10.875% senior unsecured notes on November 15, 2012. On December 28, 2012, DJOFL increased the term loans outstanding under its amended Senior Secured Credit Facility by $25 million. The Company used the proceeds of this incremental term loan and cash on hand to finance the completion, on December 28, 2012, of the Exos acquisition previously announced.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, DJOFL generated cash flow from operating activities of $44.6 million, after cash interest payments of $162.6 million. For the year ended December 31, 2011, DJOFL generated cash flow from operating activities of $23.6 million, after cash interest payments of $151.2 million. Cash flow from operations before cash interest of $207.2 million for 2012 reflected an increase of 18.5% over cash flow from operations before cash interest of $174.8 million for 2012.
