News: DJO Global Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter 2015

Continued Growth in Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA and Launch of DonJoy Performance Consumer Highlights Q2

SAN DIEGO--()--DJO Global, Inc. (“DJO” or the “Company”), a leading global provider of medical device solutions for musculoskeletal health, vascular health and pain management, today announced financial results for its public reporting subsidiary, DJO Finance LLC (“DJOFL”), for the second quarter ended June 27, 2015.
“We are pleased to report strong top and bottom line performance, in line with expectations”
Second Quarter Results
DJOFL achieved net sales for the second quarter of 2015 of $310.8 million, reflecting a decline of 1.0%, compared with net sales of $313.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. Net sales for the second quarter of 2015 were unfavorably impacted by $14.0 million related to changes in foreign currency exchange rates compared to the rates in effect in the second quarter of 2014. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates from rates in effect in the prior year period (“constant currency”), net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased 3.5% compared to net sales for the second quarter of 2014.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $73.7 million, or 23.7% of net sales, reflecting 5.0% growth when compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $70.2 million, or 22.4% of net sales, for the second quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA grew 9.1% in the second quarter of 2015.
The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income attributable to DJOFL plus interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for certain non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustment items as permitted in calculating covenant compliance under the Company’s new senior secured credit facilities (“New Senior Credit Facilities”) and the indentures governing its 8.125% second lien notes, its 10.75% third lien notes and its 9.75% senior subordinated notes. Reconciliation between net loss and Adjusted EBITDA is included in the attached financial tables.
For the second quarter of 2015, DJOFL reported a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $78.0 million, compared to a net loss of $25.4 million for the second quarter of 2014. As detailed in the attached financial tables, the results for the current and prior year second quarter periods were impacted by significant non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustments.
“We are pleased to report strong top and bottom line performance, in line with expectations,” said Mike Mogul, DJO's President and Chief Executive Officer. “I want to especially highlight the launch of DonJoy Performance in the consumer sports channel, the first time the world’s leading sports medicine products have been available to consumers. That launch coupled with strong organic sales growth and solid margin enhancement delivered a very good quarter in Q2.”
“We continue to be very optimistic about the new products that we have and are launching in 2015, as well as the building momentum of providing MotionCare™ products in order to keep arthritis sufferers moving. We also completed the acquisition of Cobalt Bone Cement and the Discovery Elbow, both products which will enhance our already industry leading orthopedic implant growth. We are reconfirming our 2015 guidance of mid-single digit revenue growth and updating Adjusted EBITDA growth rates to high-single digits. Based on current foreign currency rates, we expect sales and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year of 2015 to be negatively impacted by approximately 400-500bps.”
Sales by Business Segment
Net sales for DJO’s Bracing and Vascular segment were $136.2 million in the second quarter of 2015, reflecting growth of 6.2%, compared to the second quarter of 2014, driven by strong contribution from the sales of new products.
Net sales for DJO’s Recovery Sciences segment were $71.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, reflecting a decrease of 6.4%, compared to the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to the slower than anticipated sales in the EMPI and Regeneration business units.
Second quarter net sales within the International segment were $75.6 million. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates from rates in effect in the prior year period, net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased 5.9% from the second quarter of 2014.
Net sales for the Surgical Implant segment were $28.1 million for the second quarter of 2015, reflecting growth of 11.9% over net sales in the second quarter of 2014, driven by strong sales in hips and shoulders.
As of June 27, 2015, the Company had cash balances of $48.4 million and available liquidity of $111.5 million under its $150 million revolving credit facility.

Adjusted EBITDA
For the Three and Six Months Ended June 27, 2015 and June 28, 2014
(unaudited)

Our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, consisting of a $1,035.0 million term loan and a $150.0 million revolving credit Facilities, under which $38.0 million was outstanding as of June 27, 2015, and the Indentures governing our $1,015.0 million of 8.125% second lien notes, $298.4 million of 10.75% third lien notes, and $1.6 million of 9.75% senior subordinated notes represent significant components of our capital structure. Under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, we are required to maintain a specified first lien net leverage ratio, which is determined based on our Adjusted EBITDA. If we fail to comply with the first lien net leverage ratio under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, we would be in default. Upon the occurrence of an event of default under the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, the lenders could elect to declare all amounts outstanding under the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities to be immediately due and payable and terminate all commitments to extend further credit. If we were unable to repay those amounts, the lenders under the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities could proceed against the collateral granted to them to secure that indebtedness. We have pledged a significant portion of our assets as collateral under the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities. Any acceleration under the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities would also result in a default under the Indentures governing the notes, which could lead to the note holders electing to declare the principal, premium, if any, and interest on the then outstanding notes immediately due and payable. In addition, under the Indentures governing the notes, our ability to engage in activities such as incurring additional indebtedness, making investments, refinancing subordinated indebtedness, paying dividends and entering into certain merger transactions is governed, in part, by our ability to satisfy tests based on Adjusted EBITDA. Our ability to meet the covenants specified above will depend on future events, many of which are beyond our control, and we cannot assure you that we will meet those covenants.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to DJO Finance LLC plus interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for certain non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustment items as permitted in calculating covenant compliance and other ratios under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Indentures governing our $1,015.0 million of 8.125% second lien notes, $298.4 million of 10.75% third lien notes, and $1.6.0 million of 9.75% senior subordinated notes. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about the calculation of, and compliance with, certain financial covenants and other ratios in our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Indentures. Adjusted EBITDA is a material component of these calculations.
Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or other performance measures presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), or as an alternative to cash flow from operations as a measure of our liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent net income (loss) or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP and does not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. In particular, the definition of Adjusted EBITDA under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Indentures allows us to add back certain non-cash, extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring charges that are deducted in calculating net income (loss). However, these are expenses that may recur, vary greatly and are difficult to predict. While Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements, Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.
The following table provides reconciliation between net loss and Adjusted EBITDA:
