Zimmer Holdings, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revised Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2016

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company has posted Net Sales were $1,134.4 million against $1,161.5 million a year ago. Operating profit was $274.9 million against $300.1 million a year ago. Earnings before income tax were $231.8 million against $285.9 million a year ago. Net earnings were $176.8 million against $221.1 million a year ago. Diluted EPS was $1.02 against $1.29 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities were $91.5 million against $188.8 million a year ago. The decrease was driven primarily by the settlement of a pre-issuance hedge associated with recently completed senior notes offering. Additions to instruments were $62.4 million against $49.4 million a year ago. Additions to other property, plant and equipment was $34.4 million against $31.4 million a year ago. Purchases of investments were $152.6 million against $600.7 million a year ago. Investments in other assets were $3.0 million. Adjusted diluted EPS was $1.58 against $1.60 a year ago. Adjusted operating profit in the quarter amounted to $386.2 million. Adjusted net earnings were $272.8 million for the first quarter, a decrease of 0.6% compared to the prior year. Based upon the continued strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the company has updated its full-year 2015 standalone adjusted earnings guidance. The company now expects adjusted diluted earnings per share on a standalone basis to be in a range of $6.30 to $6.40. This compared to prior full-year 2015 guidance of $6.50 to $6.60. Additionally, changes in currency rates are also expected to negatively impact Biomet earnings, which the company expects to be partially offset by greater synergies from the pending merger than had previously been contemplated in the company's guidance. Net annual operating earnings synergies connected with the pending merger are now anticipated to reach $350 million by year three following the closing of the transaction. This compares to prior guidance of net annual synergies of $270 million by the third year post-closing. Consequently, the company now expects accretion from the pending merger with Biomet to contribute between $0.95 and $1.05 to adjusted diluted earnings per share in the first 12 months following the closing of the transaction. This accretion guidance was previously a range of $1.05 to $1.15. The company expects foreign currency translation will decrease reported revenues for the full year by 6.5% to 7%. The company expects revenues to grow organically between 1.5% and 2.5% over pro forma 2014 revenues or between $6.17 billion and $6.2 billion. For the year 2016, the company's adjusted diluted earnings per share should grow at mid-teens or higher rate compared to 2015 guidance of $6.60 to $6.80.

Zimmer Holdings Launches New External Fixation System for Trauma Patients

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. has launched a new external fixation system for trauma patients. Available in both small (6mm) and large (11mm) systems, the XtraFix External Fixation System from Zimmer is a modular system that offers surgeons advances in design technology and materials. The XtraFix System allows surgeons to eliminate steps, as well as bars and clamps from the external fixation process, resulting in saved time, costs and overall team effort. This transitional feature enables surgeons to accommodate small extremity fractures in larger constructs. In addition, the XtraFix 3D Bar/Pin-to-Bar/Pin design means pins can be placed where the fracture dictates, not the fixator, and flexible configurations means constructs require fewer components.
