New Manufacturing Footprint Realignment Plan to Further Improve Company Cost Structure Announced

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Fourth quarter 2018 net revenues were $641.6 million, an increase of 7.8% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, fourth quarter 2018 net revenues increased 9.4% over the year ago period.

Fourth quarter 2018 GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was $1.87, as compared to GAAP earnings per share of $(0.92) in the prior year period. The increase in GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations reflects a $101.6 million decrease in taxes on income from continuing operations, as compared to the prior year period (in 2017, the Company recognized $107.9 million of net tax expense as a result of the enactment of federal tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act). Fourth quarter 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 13.5% to $2.77, compared to $2.44 in the prior year period.

Full year 2018 net revenues were $2,448.4 million, an increase of 14.1% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, full year 2018 net revenues increased 12.7% over the year ago period.

Full year 2018 GAAP net income per share from continuing operations was $4.20, as compared to GAAP earnings per share of $3.33 in the prior year period. The increase in GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations reflects a $106.5 million decrease in taxes on income from continuing operations. Full year 2018 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 17.9% to $9.90, compared to $8.40 in the prior year period.

Liam Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The fourth quarter of 2018 marks the close of a strong year for Teleflex, led by robust revenue growth in Interventional Urology and Interventional Access, as well as many of our legacy product lines. Interventional Urology revenues for the full year 2018 were $196.7 million, an increase of nearly 57%, reflecting continued physician adoption of the UroLift System and expanding patient awareness of minimally invasive treatments for BPH. In addition, during 2018 the Company generated significant earnings growth, due in part to continued execution of our ongoing restructuring initiatives.”

“As we look forward to 2019, we are confident that our expanding global product portfolio will improve the lives of more patients. We expect to deliver another year of robust revenue growth, margin expansion and adjusted earnings growth, all while investing in our growth businesses to sustain our growth and profitability profile over the long term.”

2019 FOOTPRINT REALIGNMENT PLAN

In February 2019, we initiated a restructuring plan primarily involving the relocation of certain manufacturing operations to existing lower-cost locations and related workforce reductions (the “2019 Footprint realignment plan"). These actions are expected to be substantially completed during 2022.

We estimate that we will incur aggregate pre-tax restructuring and restructuring related charges in connection with the 2019 Footprint realignment plan of $56 million to $70 million, of which, we expect $21 million to $26 million to be incurred in 2019 and most of the balance is expected to be incurred prior to the end of 2021. We estimate that $53 million to $66 million of these charges will result in cash outlays, of which, $8 million to $9 million is expected to be made in 2019 and most of the balance is expected to be made by the end of 2021. Additionally, we expect to incur $29 million to $35 million in aggregate capital expenditures under the plan, of which, up to $18 million to $22 million is expected to be incurred during 2019 and most of the balance is expected to be incurred by the end of 2021.

The following table provides a summary of the Company’s cost estimates by major type of expense associated with the 2019 Footprint realignment plan:

     

Type of expense

Total estimated amount expected to be incurred

Termination benefits $19 million to $23 million
Other costs (1) $1 million to $2 million
Restructuring charges $20 million to $25 million
Restructuring related charges (2) $36 million to $45 million
Total restructuring and restructuring related charges $56 million to $70 million
 
(1)   Includes contract termination costs as well as facility closure and other exit costs (employee and equipment relocation costs and outplacement costs).
 
(2) Consists of estimated pre-tax charges related to costs directly related to the plan, primarily costs to transfer manufacturing operations to the new locations as well as accelerated depreciation of $3.0 million to $4.0 million. Most of the charges are expected to be recognized within costs of goods sold.
 

We expect to begin realizing plan-related savings in 2021 and expect to achieve annual pre-tax savings of $12 million to $14 million once the plan is fully implemented.

As the 2019 Footprint realignment plan progresses, management will reevaluate the estimated expenses and charges set forth above, and may revise its estimates, as appropriate, consistent with GAAP.

2019 OUTLOOK

On a GAAP basis, revenues in 2019 are expected to increase 5% to 6% over the prior year, reflecting our estimate of an approximately 1% unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. On a constant currency basis, the Company estimates that revenues for full year 2019 will increase 6% to 7%.

The Company expects full year 2019 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be between $6.90 and $7.05. The Company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be between $10.90 and $11.10 for full year 2019, representing an increase of 10.1% to 12.1% over 2018 and reflecting our estimate of an approximately 2% negative impact from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Segment results and commentary exclude the impact of discontinued operations.

NOTES ON NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, commonly referred to as “GAAP.” In this press release, we provide supplemental information, consisting of the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted diluted earnings per share and constant currency revenue growth. These non-GAAP measures are described in more detail below. Management uses these financial measures to assess Teleflex’s financial performance, make operating decisions, allocate financial resources, provide guidance on possible future results, and assist in its evaluation of period-to-period and peer comparisons. The non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors because they provide insight into management’s assessment of our business, and provide supplemental information pertinent to a comparison of period-to-period results of our ongoing operations. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Moreover, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Tables reconciling historical adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to historical GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations are set forth below. Tables reconciling changes in historical constant currency net revenues to historical GAAP net revenues are set forth above under “Fourth Quarter and Full Year Net Revenue by Segment." Tables reconciling forecasted 2019 constant currency revenue growth and forecasted 2019 adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to their respective most directly comparable forecasted GAAP measures, forecasted 2019 GAAP revenue growth and forecasted 2019 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, respectively, are set forth above under “2019 Outlook.”

Constant currency revenue growth: This non-GAAP measure is based upon net revenues, adjusted to eliminate the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. The impact of changes in foreign currency may vary significantly from period to period, and generally are outside of the control of our management. We believe that this measure facilitates a comparison of our operating performance exclusive of currency exchange rate fluctuations that do not reflect our underlying performance or business trends.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share: This non-GAAP measure is based upon diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, adjusted to exclude, depending on the period presented, the items described below. Management does not believe that any of the excluded items are indicative of our underlying core performance or business trends.

Restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items - Restructuring programs involve discrete initiatives designed to, among other things, consolidate or relocate manufacturing, administrative and other facilities, outsource distribution operations, improve operating efficiencies and integrate acquired businesses. Depending on the specific restructuring program involved, our restructuring charges may include employee termination, contract termination, facility closure, employee relocation, equipment relocation, outplacement and other exit costs associated with the restructuring program. Restructuring related charges are directly related to our restructuring programs and consist of facility consolidation costs, including accelerated depreciation expense related to facility closures, costs to transfer manufacturing operations between locations, and retention bonuses offered to certain employees as an incentive for them to remain with our company after completion of the restructuring program. Impairment charges occur if, as a result of periodic impairment testing or due to events or changes in circumstances, we determine that the carrying value of an asset exceeds its fair value. Impairment charges do not directly affect our liquidity, but could have a material adverse effect on our reported financial results.

Acquisition, integration and divestiture related items - Acquisition and integration expenses are incremental charges, other than restructuring or restructuring related expenses, that are directly related to specific business or asset acquisition transactions. These charges may include, among other things, professional, consulting and other fees; systems integration costs; legal entity restructuring expense; inventory step-up amortization (amortization, through cost of goods sold, of the increase in fair value of inventory resulting from a fair value calculation as of the acquisition date); fair value adjustments to contingent consideration liabilities; and bridge loan facility and backstop financing fees in connection with loan facilities that ultimately were not utilized. Divestiture related activities involve specific business or asset sales. Depending primarily on the terms of the divestiture transaction, the carrying value of the divested business or assets on our financial statements and other costs we incur as a direct result of the divestiture transaction, we may recognize a gain or loss in connection with the divestiture related activities.

Other items - These are discrete items that occur sporadically and can affect period-to-period comparisons. See footnote 3 to the reconciliation tables set forth below.

Amortization of debt discount on convertible notes - When we sold $400 million principal amount of our 3.875% convertible notes (the “convertible notes”) in 2010, we allocated the proceeds between the liability and equity components of the debt, in accordance with GAAP. As a result, the $83.7 million difference between the proceeds of the sale of the convertible notes and the liability component of the debt constituted a debt discount that was to be amortized to interest expense over the approximately seven-year term of the convertible notes, which significantly increased the amount we recorded as interest expense attributable to the convertible notes. The amount of the amortization of the debt discount was reduced as a result of our repurchases of convertible notes in 2016 and 2017 and redemptions of the convertible notes by holders of the notes, although we continued to amortize the remaining portion of the debt discount to interest expense until August 2017, when all remaining convertible notes were either converted or matured.

Intangible amortization expense - Certain intangible assets, including customer relationships, intellectual property, distribution rights, trade names and non-competition agreements, initially are recorded at historical cost and then amortized over their respective estimated useful lives. The amount of such amortization can vary from period to period as a result of, among other things, business or asset acquisitions or dispositions.

Loss on extinguishment of debt - In connection with debt refinancings, debt repayments, repurchases of convertible notes and redemptions of convertible notes, outstanding indebtedness is extinguished. These events, which have occurred from time to time on an irregular basis, have resulted in losses reflecting, among other things, unamortized debt issuance costs, as well as debt prepayment fees and premiums (including conversion premiums resulting from conversion of convertible securities).

Tax adjustments - These adjustments represent the impact of the expiration of applicable statutes of limitations for prior year returns, the resolution of audits, the filing of amended returns with respect to prior tax years and/or tax law changes affecting our deferred tax liability.

In addition, the calculation of the weighted average number of diluted shares within adjusted earnings per share for the 2017 periods gives effect to the anti-dilutive impact of shares due to the Company under its previously outstanding convertible note hedge agreements. The convertible note hedge agreements reduced the potential economic dilution that otherwise would have occurred upon conversion of the Company’s senior subordinated convertible notes (under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of the convertible note hedge agreements was not reflected in the weighted average number of diluted shares). We believe that an adjustment to show the anti-dilutive effect of the convertible note hedge agreements provides supplemental information that can be useful to investors in assessing the computation of diluted earnings per share.

(C)

Other items - For the three months ended December 31, 2018, other items included losses associated with settlement of litigation related to an intellectual property matter, expenses associated with a franchise tax audit, and relabeling costs. For the three months ended December 31, 2017, other items included both gains and losses associated with litigation settlements, the reversal of previously recognized income due to distributor acquisitions related to Vascular Solutions, the reversal of previously recognized income due to our distributor to direct sales conversion in China, and relabeling costs.

Other items for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 included a charge we incurred, as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA"), on our consolidated operations. During the second quarter of 2018, we identified provisions of the TCJA that could have adverse consequences due to our organizational structure. We implemented certain changes in the organizational structure (with, pursuant to tax law, retroactive impact back to 2017), as a result of which, we incurred a $1.9 million net worth tax in a foreign jurisdiction with respect to the 2017 tax year. Because the decision to make the change resulting in the net worth tax occurred in the second quarter of 2018, and as permitted under GAAP, we recorded the net worth tax charge in 2018, and the adjustment eliminating the charge is included in the table for the year ended December 31, 2018. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, other items included both gains and losses associated with litigation settlements, the reversal of previously recognized income due to distributor acquisitions related to Vascular Solutions, the reversal of previously recognized income due to our distributor to direct sales conversion in China, and relabeling costs.
