Exactech Q1 Net Income up 17% to $3.8 Million; Diluted EPS $.29 vs. $.25; Worldwide Sales Up 1% to $59.3 Million; U.S. Sales Increased 6%
GAINESVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Exactech, Inc. (EXAC), a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products for hip, knee, shoulder, spine and biologic materials, announced today sales of $59.3 million for the first quarter of 2013, a 1% increase over $58.6 million in the first quarter of 2012. Net income was $3.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $3.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the same quarter a year ago.
First Quarter Segment Performance
- Knee implant sales decreased 4% to $20.5 million
- Extremity implant sales increased 21% to $15.7 million
- Hip implant sales decreased 5% to $10.4 million
- Biologic and Spine sales decreased 2% to $6.1 million
- Other sales decreased 7% to $6.6 million
Exactech Chairman and CEO Dr. Bill Petty said, Our sales for the quarter were slightly below our expectations as we experienced weakness in our European sales and the impact of an unfavorable currency swing, partially reflecting a weaker Japanese yen. U.S. sales were somewhat stronger with the help of continuing healthy sales in our shoulder products. The currency movement as well as continued focus by our employees on managing our cost structure allowed us to decrease our operating expenses during the quarter and deliver a 17% increase in net income.
Exactech President David Petty said, U.S. sales increased 6% to $39.0 million compared with $36.8 million in the first quarter a year ago. International sales decreased 7% to $20.3 million. U.S. sales represented 66% of total sales and international sales were 34% of the total. On a constant currency basis, international sales decreased 5% and worldwide sales grew 2% for the quarter.
Chief Financial Officer Jody Phillips said, Gross margins remained flat at 69% for the first quarter from the first 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 decreased 2% to $34.6 million and as a percentage of sales decreased to 58% from 60% for the first quarter of 2012. General and administrative expenses decreased 10% in the first quarter to $5.1 million from $5.6 million. R&D expenses decreased 6% to $3.9 million during the first quarter.
Looking forward, Exactech maintained its 2013 sales guidance at $236 - $242 million and its diluted EPS target of $1.03 $1.09. For the second quarter ending June 30, 2013, the company said it anticipates sales of $57 - $59 million and diluted EPS of $0.24 - $0.26.
