Management Comment

Exactech Chairman and CEO Dr. Bill Petty said, "This was a strong quarter for Exactech. We were pleased with our bottom line performance with a 23% gain in net income and welcomed operating margin expansion. Our overall revenue gain of 10% was led by 36% growth in our shoulder sales and a 15% rise in revenue in our biologic and spine category. We are especially pleased with the continued robust growth of the Equinoxe shoulder. This ongoing success is due to the clinical advantages of the system that provide improved patient outcomes. Surgeons recognize these advantages and appreciate the excellent educational programs that Exactech offers to improve their ability to use the system to its full potential. We believe we are poised for continued growth with this offering and renewed growth for our hip and knee systems as we continue to introduce new products in these lines and expand our distribution channels."

Exactech President David Petty said, "U.S. sales increased 13% to $39.9 million compared with $35.2 million in the second quarter a year ago. International sales increased 4% to $20.7 million. U.S. sales represented 66% of total sales and international sales were 34% of the total. For the first six months of 2013, U.S. sales rose 9% to $78.8 million compared with $72.0 million in 2012. International sales for the first six months of 2013 decreased 2% to $41.0 million and decreased to 34% of total sales from 37% of total sales for the first six months of 2012 due to relative weakness in some European markets. On a constant currency basis, international sales increased 7% and worldwide sales grew 11% for the second quarter."

Chief Financial Officer Jody Phillips said, "Our focus on operating margin expansion during 2013 continues to pay off as we have expanded our operating profit during the first six months of the year to 10.2% of sales from 9.2% of sales during the first six months of 2012. We achieved this despite the gross margin decrease to 68.5% during the quarter as compared to 68.8% for the second quarter of 2012 primarily as a result of the impact of the Medical Device Excise Tax. Total operating expenses for the second quarter increased 8% to $35.3 million and as a percentage of sales decreased to 58% from 59% for the second quarter of 2012. We continue to feel that we are on track with our 2013 financial performance plan."

Looking forward, Exactech narrowed its 2013 sales guidance to $237 - $241 million and its diluted EPS target to $1.05 - $1.09. For the third quarter ending September 30, 2013, the company said it anticipates sales of $54 - $56 million and diluted EPS of $0.20 - $0.22. The foregoing statements regarding targets for the quarter and full year are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.
