“During the fourth quarter of 2015, we completed the wind-down of the Empi business and restated the historical financials to reflect Empi as discontinued operations and are pleased to report a strong quarter and full year performance of the rest of our businesses, which comprise DJO Global going forward.” said Mike Mogul, DJO's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Full year 2015 revenue growth of 6.7% and leveraged EBITDA growth of 9.3% with accelerated performance in the 4th quarter shows the underlying strength of our businesses. We continue to see terrific performance in Orthopedic Implants and in Consumer products along with strong better than market performance in our core Bracing and International businesses.”
Sales Results
DJOFL achieved net sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 of $308.0 million, reflecting constant currency growth of 9.4%, compared with net sales of $290.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2015, DJOFL achieved net sales of $1,113.6 million, reflecting constant currency growth of 6.7% compared to net sales of $1,087.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014. Net sales for the twelve months of 2015 were unfavorably impacted by changes in foreign currency exchange rates aggregating $46.9 million compared to the rates in effect in the twelve months of 2014.
Net sales for DJO’s Bracing and Vascular segment were $143.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, reflecting growth of 3.9%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. For the full year of 2015, net sales for the Bracing and Vascular segment were $526.3 million and increased 4.3% over the full year of 2014, due to new account acquisition and growth in sales of direct consumer products.
Net sales for DJO’s Recovery Sciences segment were $43.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, reflecting an increase of 0.5%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. For the full year of 2015, net sales for the Recovery Sciences segment were $156.2 million, a decrease of 0.8% from net sales for the full year of 2014, primarily driven by continued slow market conditions affecting the sale of Chattanooga rehabilitation equipment.
Net sales for DJO’s International segment were $79.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates from rates in effect in the prior year period, net sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 8.4% from the fourth quarter of 2014. For the full year of 2015, net sales for the International segment were $296.3 million and increased 5.5% on a constant currency basis over sales for the full year of 2014, primarily driven by stronger sales in direct markets, especially in Germany, France and Spain, and increased sales penetration in emerging markets.
Net sales for the Surgical Implant segment were $42.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, reflecting growth of 54.6% over net sales in the fourth quarter of 2014. For the full year of 2015, net sales for the Surgical Implant segment were $134.8 million and increased 34.7% over 2014, driven by strong sales of each of the Company’s shoulder, knee and hip product lines, as well as contribution from the acquired Biomet assets.
Earnings Results
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $68.9 million, or 22.4% of net sales, reflecting 3.8% as reported and 11.1% constant currency growth when compared with Adjusted EBITDA of $66.4 million, or 22.9% of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months of 2015 was $239.9 million, or 21.5% of net sales, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $231.3 million, or 21.3% of net sales, for the twelve months of 2014, reflecting 3.7% as reported growth and constant currency growth of 9.3%. Including cost savings programs currently underway of $9.1 million, Adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 was $249.0 million, or22.4 percent of LTM net sales.
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 fourth quarter of 2015, DJOFL reported a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $49.6 million, compared to a net loss of $7.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. As detailed in the attached financial tables, the results for the current and prior year fourth quarter periods were impacted by significant non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustments. For the twelve months of 2015, DJOFL reported a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $340.9 million, compared to a net loss attributable to DJOFL of $90.5 million for the twelve months of 2014. As detailed in the attached financial tables, the results for the current and prior year twelve month periods were impacted by significant non-cash items, non-recurring items and other adjustments.
As of December 31, 2015, the Company had cash balances of $48.9 million and available liquidity of $119.5 million under its $150 million revolving credit facility.
2016 Outlook
We have a very exciting slate of new products for 2016 that we will begin to launch late in the first quarter. We expect these new products and other ongoing commercial initiatives to drive continued top line growth and we are targeting total company full year constant currency revenue growth rates of 6%-8% for the full 2016 year and adjusted EBITDA growth rates of 8%-10%, including future cost reductions for the full 2016 year. Based on year end foreign currency rates, we do not expect sales or EBITDA for the full year of 2016 to be materially impacted.

Adjusted EBITDA
For the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2015 and 2014
(unaudited)
Our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, consisting of a $1,055.0 million term loan facility (including a $20.0 million delayed draw term loan facility) and a $150.0 million revolving credit facility, under which $30.0 million was outstanding as of December 31, 2015, and the Indentures governing our $1,015.0 million of 8.125% second lien notes, $298.5 million of 10.75% third lien notes, and $1.6 million of 9.75% senior subordinated notes (collectively, the “notes”) represent significant components of our capital structure. Under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities, we are required to maintain a specified senior secured first lien leverage ratio, which is determined based on our Adjusted EBITDA. If we fail to comply with the senior secured first lien 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 substantially all 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 and our subsidiaries’ 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 in the New Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Indebtures governing those notes will depend on future events, some 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 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 and other ratios under our New Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Indentures governing the 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 governing the notes. 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 governing the notes 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.
