Provides Fiscal 2016 Guidance

LONDON, Feb. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LivaNova PLC (NASDAQ:LIVN) (LSE:LIVN) (“LivaNova” or the “Company”), a global medical technology company, today announced 2015 financial results (see Historical Financial Information below).

Sales and Other Recent Business Highlights

  • Worldwide sales on a combined basis1 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 were $318 million, an increase of 3.1% on a constant currency2 basis as compared to the previous year.  On an as reported basis, sales declined by 3.6% for the above period.
  • For the twelve months ended December 31, 20153, worldwide sales on a combined basis were $1.2 billion, an increase of 2.7% on a constant currency basis over the comparable periods in 2014, and declined by 6.7% on an as reported basis.
  • FDA approvals of Perceval sutureless valve and CROWN PRT aortic valve.
  • Regulatory approval in Japan of KORA 250, MRI compatible pacemaker.
  • European & Japanese launch of Platinium range of ICDs and CRT-Ds.
     

“Overall, our fourth quarter sales results demonstrated the expected improvement over both the prior quarter and the comparable period in the prior year on a constant currency basis.  Cardiac Surgery improved in several areas, most notably in the U.S. and other developed markets.  CRM sales improved over the prior quarter, and the initial results of the Platinium launch in Europe are encouraging.  The Neuromodulation business unit continues to grow strongly, with the AspireSR® launch contributing substantially to results in addition to ongoing growth from new patients in the U.S. market,” said André-Michel Ballester, Chief Executive Officer of LivaNova.  “The recent regulatory approvals of the Perceval sutureless valve in the U.S. and KORA 250 fully MRI compatible pacemaker in Japan, along with the continued strong performance of AspireSR, provides a sound basis for our guidance today and solid growth is anticipated in fiscal 2016 and subsequent years.

“We expect to achieve both sales and earnings growth in order to deliver sustainable shareholder value.  Further, I want to thank the teams that have been focused on both realizing potential synergies and implementing our integration plans.  We remain firmly on track to achieve each of these objectives,” continued Mr. Ballester.

Historical Financial Information4

On October 19, 2015, LivaNova was formed by the merger of Sorin S.p.A (“Sorin”), a leader in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, and Cyberonics Inc. (“Cyberonics”), a medical device company with core expertise in neuromodulation.  Today, LivaNova operates as one company with three Business Units: with Cardiac Surgery and Cardiac Rhythm Management (“CRM”) (the successors to the legacy Sorin business) and Neuromodulation (the successor to the legacy Cyberonics business).  These Business Units account for substantially all of the Company’s sales during the periods referred to herein.5

LivaNova is providing unaudited financial results for the fiscal period ended December 31, 2015 as follows:

  • Consolidated Statements of Operations for LivaNova for the Transitional Year from April 25, 2015 to December 31, 2015.  The Transitional Year includes the results of legacy Cyberonics from April 25, 2015 to December 31, 2015 and the results of legacy Sorin from October 19, 2015 to December 31, 2015.
  • Consolidated balance sheet as at December 31, 2015.
  • Sales6 for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 for Cardiac Surgery and CRM business units, giving effect to the merger as if it had occurred at the beginning of each period presented.
  • Sales for the periods commencing on September 26, 2015 and December 27, 2014, and ending on December 31, 2015 for Neuromodulation business unit.7  These periods will be referred to as the quarter, or three months ended December 31, 2015, and the twelve months, or year, ended December 31, 2015, of LivaNova, respectively, throughout this press release.
  • Sales for the above periods by geography, on the same combined basis.
  • Selected non-GAAP operating results for both legacy Cyberonics and legacy Sorin for each of the quarters ended March 31, 2015, June 30, 2015, September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2015 and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015.  These operating results have been adjusted for non-GAAP items.
  • Combined selected non-GAAP operating results for LivaNova for each of the quarters ended March 31, 2015, June 30, 2015, September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2015, and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015. These operating results have been adjusted for non-GAAP items.  
              

The sales and operating results for legacy Cyberonics for the March, June and September quarters represent results for the periods ended on March 27, June 26 and September 25 respectively.

Consolidated Profit & Loss for the Transitional Year ended December 31, 2015

The Company reported a loss from operations of $29 million on sales of $416 million for the Transitional Period ended December 31, 2015. This period included a $24 million impact from the step-up in inventory and fixed assets, $67 million in merger, integration and restructuring expenses along with $23 million in accelerated equity compensation expenses and other expenses considered to be of a non-recurring nature. Management believes that, due to the timing of the merger referred to above, and the time period covered by the Transitional results, the results are not comparable to prior periods.

Three months ended December 31, 2015

For the three Business Units, sales were as follows:8

Cardiac Surgery (as a business unit of Sorin during part of the reported period)

Cardiac Surgery sales, which include cardiopulmonary products and heart valves, were $165 million, representing a 4.2% increase on a constant currency basis. Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $171 million, with currency changes adversely impacting reported sales by $13 million in 2015.

Sales in cardiopulmonary products, including heart-lung machines, oxygenators, and auto-transfusion machines, were $130 million, an increase of 6.0% on a constant currency basis as compared to the previous year period.  Sales in the U.S. and other developed markets were particularly strong, growing by 14.5% over the comparable period in 2014.

Heart valve sales, including tissue and mechanical heart valves, were $35 million, a decrease of 1.6% on a constant currency basis as compared to the same period the previous year. Sales of Perceval® in Europe have resumed at an accelerated rate and the recent approval in the U.S. is expected to provide an impetus to growth in 2016.

Neuromodulation (as a business unit of Cyberonics during part of the reported period)

Neuromodulation sales were $92 million in the fourth quarter, an increase of 25.9% on a constant currency basis.  Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $74 million, with currency changes adversely impacting sales by $1 million in 2015.

It should be noted that the change in fiscal calendar for Neuromodulation resulted in three additional business days during the period and the Company estimates this added 4% to 6% to the growth rate.

Growth was primarily driven by continued strong new patient adoption in the U.S. largely as a result of sales of AspireSR® following launch in June 2015, and sustained growth in international markets. Unit growth globally was approximately 13%, and the 70% adoption rate of AspireSR® in the U.S. market drove a favorable product mix and higher revenue.

CRM (as a business unit of Sorin during part of the reported period)

CRM sales for the period totaled $61 million, a decrease of 19.2% on a constant currency basis. Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $85 million, with currency changes adversely impacting reported sales by $8 million in 2015.

Excluding Japan and the US markets, CRM sales increased by approximately 1% on a constant currency basis. Following the recent approval of KORA 250, sales to Japan will resume in the first quarter of 2016.

Planned shipments to Japan in the fourth quarter were again immaterial, in line with management’s previously provided expectations, ahead of the launch of KORA 250®, which is anticipated to occur in the first quarter of 2016, and should support further regaining of market share. Sales in European markets improved, showing growth for the quarter following the Platinium® launch in November.

Twelve months ended December 31, 2015

For the three Business Units, sales were as follows:9

Cardiac Surgery (as a business unit of Sorin during part of the reported period)

Cardiac Surgery sales, which include cardiopulmonary products and heart valves, grew to $617 million, an increase of 3.3% on a constant currency basis.  Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $664 million, with currency changes adversely impacting reported sales by $69 million in 2015.

Net sales in cardiopulmonary products grew to $476 million, an increase of 4.8% on a constant currency basis as compared to the prior year period.  Over the year, sales to emerging markets, Japan, Canada and Australia grew by 8.8% over the comparable period.

Heart valve sales, were $140 million, a decrease of 1.6% on a constant currency basis as compared to the same period last year.

Neuromodulation (as a business unit of Cyberonics during part of the reported period)

Neuromodulation net sales grew to $324 million, an increase of 13.9% on a constant currency basis. Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $290 million, with currency changes adversely impacting sales by $6 million in 2015.  The reported period includes a positive impact of 1% to 2% from the change in fiscal calendar to a December 31 year end.

Sales growth accelerated following the launch of AspireSR® in the U.S. market in June, 2015.

CRM (as a business unit of Sorin during part of the reported period)

CRM net sales for the period totaled $261 million, a decrease of 8.4% on a constant currency basis.  Lower sales to Japan for the reasons previously discussed accounted for approximately half of this decrease.  Sales in the comparable period of 2014 were $334 million, with currency changes adversely impacting sales by $45 million in 2015.

Guidance for 2016

Please note the following and refer to the Table on the last page of this release:

  • All financial guidance referred to below is on an adjusted non-GAAP basis.

About LivaNova

LivaNova PLC is a global medical technology company formed by the merger of Sorin S.p.A, a leader in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, and Cyberonics Inc., a medical device company with core expertise in neuromodulation. LivaNova transforms medical innovation into meaningful solutions for the benefit of patients, healthcare professionals, and healthcare systems.  The Company employs approximately 4,500 employees worldwide and is headquartered in London, U.K. With a presence in more than 100 countries, LivaNova operates as three business units: Cardiac Rhythm Management, Cardiac Surgery, and Neuromodulation, with operating headquarters in Clamart (France), Mirandola (Italy) and Houston (U.S.), respectively.

LivaNova is listed on NASDAQ and is admitted to the standard listing segment of the Official List of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) under the ticker symbol “LIVN”.

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

Cyberonics, 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 unit 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 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 each of the quarters ended March 31, 2015, June 30, 2015, September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2015 and for the year ended December 31, 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 US 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 Unit structure with Cardiac Surgery, Neuromodulation and CRM 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, particularly in the areas of heart failure, sleep apnea and percutaneous mitral valve. 

Unless otherwise noted, all sales growth rates in this release reflect comparable, constant currency growth.  Constant currency growth measures the change in sales between current and prior year periods using average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period.  Management believes that referring to comparable, constant currency growth is a more useful way to evaluate the sales performance of the newly formed LivaNova and its business units, and to compare the sales performance of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis.  A reconciliation of this information is attached to this business update.

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.
