Exactech Chairman and CEO Dr. Bill Petty said, We were pleased with another strong quarter. Again, we outperformed our peer companies as we reported improvements in all major categories of our business led by our extremities and hip segments. We also recorded a welcome improvement in our knee business, our largest operating segment. Growing strength in our spine products line primarily drove a 10% gain in our biologic and spine segment revenue. With a 27% increase in year to date net income, we are now beginning to experience the operating leverage from many of our investments over the last few years.
Exactech President David Petty said, Based on strong performances of our hip and extremities businesses as well as sequentially improving U.S. knee growth rates, U.S. sales increased 12% to $35.3 million compared with $31.5 million in the third quarter a year ago. This represented our highest quarterly U.S. growth in more than two years. International sales grew 1% to $16.0 million reflecting sales strength in Asian and Latin American markets, offsetting market challenges in Europe as well as a $1.0 million net sales return that was part of an agreement with our former Spanish distributor to settle outstanding accounts receivable. Including this return, sales growth on a constant currency basis in the quarter was 10% worldwide and 7% internationally.
Chief Financial Officer Jody Phillips said, Gross margins increased to 70% for the third quarter from 68.5% for the third quarter a year ago due to higher growth in the U.S. market and continued cost reductions attributable to internal manufacturing. Total operating expenses for the quarter increased 4% to $31.4 million and as a percentage of sales decreased to 61% from 64% for the third quarter of 2011. General and administrative expenses decreased 10% in the third quarter to $4.6 million from $5.1 million, primarily due to the reduction in compliance costs. R&D expenses increased 25% to $4.4 million during the third quarter, primarily due to robust design and development activities across all of our product lines.
Looking forward, Exactech updated its 2012 revenue guidance to $221-$223 million and changed its diluted EPS target to $0.93 - $0.95. For the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2012, the company anticipates revenues of $56-$58 million and diluted EPS of $0.26-$0.28.
