LivaNova Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Results

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 1, 2017-- LivaNova PLC (NASDAQ:LIVN; LSE: LIVN) (“LivaNova” or the “Company”), a market-leading medical technology and innovation company, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

For the fourth quarter of 2016, worldwide sales were $311 million, a decrease of 2.3 percent on a reported basis and a decrease of 1.6 percent on a constant-currency basis, as compared to the previous year. On a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) basis, fourth quarter 2016 loss per share was ($0.61). Fourth quarter 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.85. For full-year 2016, worldwide sales were $1.2 billion, an increase of 0.8 percent on a reported basis and increase of 1.0 percent on a constant-currency basis, as compared to the previous year. On a GAAP basis, full-year 2016 loss per share was ($1.29). Full-year 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share were $3.05.

"Despite it being a challenging year for top-line growth, we were able to deliver adjusted earnings per share at the high end of our projected range," said Damien McDonald, chief executive officer. “2016 was LivaNova's first full year as a public company and we made significant progress in many areas – launching several key products, driving merger and restructuring synergies, aligning inventory levels and consolidating balance sheet strength. We implemented numerous measures to reinforce our foundation and simplify our business model. This positions LivaNova for a stronger future, driving sustainable growth, continued financial leverage and value to our shareholders.”

Three months ended December 31, 2016

Worldwide sales for the fourth quarter were $311 million, down 1.6 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015.

For the three business franchises, sales were as follows:

Cardiac Surgery

Cardiac Surgery sales, which include cardiopulmonary products and heart valves, were $159 million, representing a 3.2 percent decrease versus the comparable period in 2015.

Sales in cardiopulmonary products were $125 million, down 3.4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2015. A decline in the Company’s 3T Heater-Cooler devices, as a result of import restrictions in the U.S., the introduction of our loaner program across geographies and the timing of heart-lung machine orders in Europe offset share gains and strong demand in Europe and emerging markets for oxygenators.

Heart valve sales, including tissue and mechanical heart valves, were $34 million, a decrease of 2.2 percent compared to the same period the previous year. Strength in tissue valves, driven by strong demand for Perceval in both the U.S. and Europe was offset by declines in mechanical valves globally, with on-going inventory alignment in emerging markets, particularly China.

Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM)

CRM sales for the period totaled $61 million, an increase of 1.3 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily due to the launch of our KORA 250 pacemaker in Japan.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation sales were $91 million in the fourth quarter, a slight decline from the prior year period, primarily due to four less selling days this quarter and inventory alignment in our European business, which offset favorable results from the continued adoption of the Company’s newest VNS Therapy device, AspireSR, in the U.S.

Financial Performance

On a U.S. GAAP basis, fourth quarter 2016 net loss from operations was $37 million, primarily due to costs related to the 3T Heater-Cooler Remediation Plan, impairment of goodwill in our CRM business franchise and restructuring expenses. Adjusted income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $57 million, an increase of 27.9% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily driven by improvements in gross margin and a significant reduction in operating expenses resulting from merger synergy and restructuring activities.

Twelve months ended December 31, 2016

Worldwide sales for full-year 2016 were $1.2 billion, up 1.0 percent compared to full-year net sales in 2015, primarily due to strong adoption of AspireSR and the U.S. launch of Perceval, our sutureless valve.

For the three business franchises, sales were as follows:

Cardiac Surgery

Cardiac Surgery sales, which include cardiopulmonary products and heart valves, were $612 million, down slightly versus full-year 2015.

Sales in cardiopulmonary products were $474 million, relatively flat with the full-year 2015, primarily due to a decline in the Company’s 3T Heater-Cooler devices, as a result of import restrictions in the U.S. and more recently, the loaner program, offset by strong sales and share gains in INSPIRE, our newest oxygenator.

Heart valve sales, including tissue and mechanical heart valves, were $137 million, a decrease of 1.6 percent compared to the previous year. Strength in tissue valves, driven by strong demand for Perceval in both the U.S. and Europe, was offset by declines in mechanical valves.

Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM)

CRM sales totaled $249 million, a decrease of 4.7 percent as compared to full-year 2015. Positive performance of the Company’s newest high-voltage device PLATINIUM and favorable year-over-year results with its KORA 250 pacemaker were offset by declines in our Europe low-voltage business, as a result of continued pricing pressure and delayed product launches.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation sales were $351 million for the full-year 2016, an increase of 8.8 percent over the prior year period, driven primarily by continued adoption of the Company’s newest VNS Therapy device, AspireSR, and strong new patient growth in the U.S.

Financial Performance

On a U.S. GAAP basis, loss from operations for full-year 2016 was $28 million. Adjusted income from operations for full-year 2016 was $219 million, an increase of 26.9 percent as compared to full-year 2015.

2017 Projections

LivaNova expects worldwide net sales for full-year 2017 to grow between 1 and 3 percent on a constant-currency basis. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for 2017 are expected to be in the range of $3.25 to $3.45.

Key non-GAAP reconciliation items to the projected 2017 adjusted diluted earnings per share are as follows:

       
      Earnings Per Share
Estimated merger and integration charges     $0.05 - $0.08
Estimated charges for restructuring     $0.29 - $0.33
Amortization of intangible assets related to purchase price accounting     $0.80
Estimated charges related to equity compensation     $0.29 - $0.33
   

In 2017, the company estimates that adjusted cash flow from operations, excluding integration, restructuring and 3T remediation payments, will be in the range of $190 to $210 million. Capital expenditures are projected to range between $40 million to $50 million. Depreciation and amortization is expected to be in the mid-$30 million range.

"We have created a solid foundation and are on track for continued progress in 2017 with initiatives to advance our growth, drive product launches and fund our equity investments, which remain exciting opportunities for the company," said McDonald. "We expect continued progress as we execute on our synergy targets and retain our focus, energy and discipline as a company. Together, we believe these efforts will enable LivaNova to most effectively serve the needs of our customers and patients, and deliver strong value to our shareholders."

About LivaNova

LivaNova PLC is a global medical technology company built on nearly five decades of experience and a relentless commitment to improve the lives of patients around the world. LivaNova’s advanced technologies and breakthrough treatments provide meaningful solutions for the benefit of patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare systems. Headquartered in London and with a presence in more than 100 countries worldwide, the company employs more than 4,500 employees. LivaNova operates as three business franchises: Cardiac Surgery, Neuromodulation and Cardiac Rhythm Management, with operating headquarters in Mirandola (Italy), Houston (U.S.A.) and Clamart (France), respectively.

Financial Alignment, Combined Sales & Operating Results, Business Franchise Structure and Constant Currency

Cyberonics Inc., the predecessor company to LivaNova, previously reported on a 52/53 week fiscal year calendar ending in April. With the formal change in the fiscal calendar to a fiscal year ended December 31, the historical Neuromodulation business franchise sales have been aligned to correspond as closely as possible to calendar quarters.

Although LivaNova was a shell company with no business operations until the closing date of the merger on October 19, 2015, the sales results disclosed for periods up to and beyond that date are being provided on a combined basis, a non-GAAP formulation that combines the results of legacy Sorin Group S.p.A. (Sorin) and Cyberonics for the periods completed prior to the merger and periods that include results both before and after the closing of the merger. The Company believes that presenting the results of Sorin and Cyberonics in such a manner offers a meaningful representation to investors of the combined company’s sales for these periods.

Non-GAAP operating results, unaudited, have been included for 2015. These results have been prepared by management and adjusted for non-GAAP items as if the merger had occurred on January 1, 2015 but should not be considered as an alternative to Proforma Income Statements to be provided in accordance with SEC filings. Certain adjustments to legacy Sorin operating results have occurred in order to present the results in U.S. dollars and to align these results as closely as possible to the presentation of LivaNova financial results. Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company’s ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies. Management believes that the presentation of these results provides a meaningful representation of the combined company’s operating results for the periods presented.

The sales and operating results for legacy Cyberonics for the quarters ended March 31, June 30 and September 30 were aligned to provide comparative information. The actual periods ended on March 27, June 26 and September 25 respectively.

LivaNova (as the successor to Sorin and Cyberonics on a combined basis) operates under a Business Franchise structure with Cardiac Surgery, CRM and Neuromodulation accounting for substantially all of the sales during the periods referred to herein. The combined company also operates a New Ventures group, dedicated to developing new technologies.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, management has disclosed financial measurements that present financial information not necessarily in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company’s ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies. 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. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, the operating performance measure as prescribed by GAAP.

Unless otherwise noted, all sales growth rates in this release reflect comparable, constant currency growth. Management believes that referring to comparable, constant currency growth is the most useful way to evaluate the sales performance of LivaNova and to compare the sales performance of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis. Constant currency growth, a non-GAAP financial measure, measures the change in sales between current and prior year periods using average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period.
