CONMED Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Financial Results

Company Completes Strong Year in Profitability

Achieves Full-Year Earnings Growth of: 150% GAAP EPS 30% Non-GAAP EPS

Conference Call to be Held at 10:00 a.m. ET Today

UTICA, NY--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - CONMED Corporation (NASDAQ: CNMD) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010.

GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $0.24 on sales of $184.1 million compared to $0.17 in the fourth quarter of 2009 on sales of $190.6 million. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.36 compared to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.37 in the 2009 fourth quarter. As discussed below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," the Company presents various non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the attached reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, sales were $713.7 million compared to $694.7 million in 2009. GAAP diluted earnings per share grew to $1.05 in 2010 compared to $0.42 in 2009. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 30.0% to $1.30 in 2010 compared to $1.00 in 2009.

"We closed out 2010 achieving our expectations for profitability in the fourth quarter and for the year. Throughout 2010, the Company's operating margin has improved, cash flow has been strong and significant new product launches bode well for the future," commented Mr. Joseph J. Corasanti, CONMED's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we anticipated, and previously communicated would be the case, revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 were less than those of the fourth quarter of 2009 due to the uncharacteristic progression of sales in 2009 because of the abnormal shift in hospital purchasing patterns caused by the global economic crisis."

International sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 were $89.1 million, representing 48.4% of total sales, and $341.8 million for the 2010 year (47.9% of sales). The impact of foreign currency exchange rates in the fourth quarter of 2010 caused sales to be $1.1 million less than sales in the fourth quarter 2009. However, favorable currency exchange rates for all of 2010 led to an increase in sales of $9.6 million for the year.

Cash provided from operating activities was three times greater than net income in the fourth quarter of 2010 and amounted to $23.0 million. For the year ended December 31, 2010, cash provided by operating activities totaled $38.2 million on a GAAP basis. Adjusted for the termination of the receivable financing facility, non-GAAP cash flow from operations was $67.2 million (see attached reconciliation). The Company used this cash to repurchase $23.0 million of its common stock, to reduce its debt and usage of the receivable facility by $22.2 million and to fund capital additions of $14.7 million, among other items.

Outlook

Mr. Corasanti added, "We are pleased with the profitability and strong cash flow generated by our business in 2010, and are excited by the long-term potential impact to our top-line we expect from a number of our recently launched products, including our tissue sealing device. Moreover, we believe that there will be continued measured improvement in the overall economy in 2011 and base our outlook on this premise. Consistent with our previous forecast for this year, we anticipate that sales in 2011 will approximate $745 - $755 million, with non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.40 - $1.50. For the first quarter of 2011, sales should approximate $180 - $185 million, with non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.29 - $0.34."

The non-GAAP estimates for the first quarter and full-year 2011 exclude the additional non-cash interest expense required by recently issued Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") guidance, and manufacturing and administrative restructuring costs expected to be incurred in 2011.

The sales and earnings expectations for 2011 are based on the January 2011 currency exchange rates and take into account the currency hedges entered into by the Company. CONMED estimates that 70% of its currency exposure is hedged for 2011.


Restructuring costs

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company continued the consolidation of various administrative functions in its CONMED Linvatec division and continued the transfer of additional product lines to its Mexican manufacturing facility. Expenses associated with these activities, including severance and relocation costs, amounted to $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $3.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. In addition, during the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company terminated a product offering in its CONMED Linvatec division with associated costs of $2.5 million. These charges are included in the GAAP earnings per share set forth above and are excluded from the non-GAAP results. CONMED expects restructuring charges in 2011 to approximate $2.0 - $3.0 million; these costs are excluded from non-GAAP earnings estimates.

Stock and bond repurchase

As previously disclosed during the second and third quarters of 2010, 1,164,000 shares of CONMED common stock were repurchased for an aggregate cost of $23.0 million. The remaining availability under the Board of Directors' authorization for stock repurchases currently amounts to $23.8 million, and additional shares under this authority may be repurchased using the Company's cash flow. In the second quarter of 2010, the Company also repurchased and retired $3.0 million face value of its 2.5 percent Convertible Notes at a discount of approximately 3 percent.

Convertible note interest expense

As previously disclosed, and in accordance with guidance recently issued by the FASB, the Company is now required to record non-cash interest expense related to its convertible notes to bring the effective interest rate to a level approximating that of a non-convertible note of similar size and tenor. In the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, CONMED recorded additional non-cash pre-tax interest charges of $1.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively. For the years of 2010 and 2009, such charges amounted to $4.2 million and $4.1 million, respectively. These charges are included in the GAAP earnings per share set forth above, and excluded from the non-GAAP amounts.

Accounts receivable financing termination

Coincident with the refinancing of the Company's senior secured credit facility in November 2010, the Company terminated its accounts receivable financing facility. Previously, the sale of accounts receivable to a bank removed the sold receivables from the Company's balance sheet. Usage of the facility amounted to $29.0 million at December 31, 2009. Accordingly, as of December 31, 2010, accounts receivable is $29.0 million greater because the full amount of receivables remains on the balance sheet, compared to the off-balance sheet accounting in 2009, and long-term debt includes the former usage of the receivable facility. Further, cash provided by operating activities on the December 31, 2010 statement of cash flows is reduced by $29.0 million as a result of this change. See the attached reconciliation of cash flows provided by operating activities. This facility termination had no effect on the consolidated statements of income.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management has disclosed financial measurements in this press announcement that present financial information that is not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year on a regular basis, and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share measure the income of the Company excluding unusual credits or charges that are considered by management to be outside of the normal on-going operations of the Company. Management uses and presents non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share because management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's short and long-term financial prospects, the impact of unusual items should be eliminated from on-going operating activities. These adjustments for unusual items are derived from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on the Company's results of operations. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share to forecast and evaluate the performance of the Company as well as to compare results of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
