We launched 16 new products, made steady progress on our robotics project, and successfully completed the acquisition of Transplant Technologies of Texas,” commented David Paul, Chairman and CEO. “This performance was the result of continued execution of our strategy of robust product innovation, sales force expansion, and disciplined expense control. I am very proud of the performance of our team in 2014 and remain confident in our ability to produce industry leading growth and outstanding profitability.”

Dave Demski, President and COO, added, “Our fourth quarter sales performance capped a strong year of profitable growth. Fourth quarter worldwide sales were a record $128.8 million, an increase of 11.8% over the fourth quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA remained strong at 36.7% of sales.”

Net income for the year ending December 31, 2014 was $92.5 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, as compared to $68.6 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, for 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income before interest (income)/expense, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, changes in the fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration in connection with business acquisitions and other acquisition related costs, provision for litigation and provision for litigation – cost of goods sold, is useful as an additional measure of operating performance, and particularly as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period, as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance, and it removes the effect of our capital structure, asset base, income taxes and interest income and expense. Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. In addition, for the periods ended December 31, 2014 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share, respectively, before provisions for litigation and provision for litigation – cost of goods sold, net of the tax effects of such provisions. We believe these non-GAAP measures are also useful indicators of our operating performance, and particularly as additional measures of comparative operative performance from period to period as they remove the effects of litigation, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. We also define the non-GAAP measure of Free Cash Flow as the net cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for the impact of restricted cash, less the cash impact of purchases of property and equipment. We believe that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating our overall financial performance for comparative periods as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and Free Cash Flow are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures do not include certain expenses that may be necessary to evaluate our liquidity or operating results. Our definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and Free Cash Flow may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
