WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth quarter 2020 net revenues were $711.2 million, an increase of 4.4% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, fourth quarter 2020 net revenues increased 2.3% over the year ago period. The Company estimates that COVID-19 had a net negative impact to fourth quarter 2020 revenue of approximately $61 million, or 9%.

Fourth quarter 2020 GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 28.9% to $1.62, compared to $2.28 in the prior year period. Fourth quarter 2020 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 0.9% to $3.25, compared to $3.28 in the prior year period.

Full year 2020 net revenues were $2.537 billion, a decrease of 2.2% compared to the prior year. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, full year 2020 net revenues decreased 2.4% over the prior year. The Company estimates that COVID-19 had a net negative impact to full year 2020 revenue of approximately $281 million, or 11%.

Full year 2020 GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 27.6% to $7.10, compared to $9.81 in the prior year. Full year 2020 adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 4.3% to $10.67, compared to $11.15 in the prior year.

Liam Kelly, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was a difficult year for Teleflex. However, during the fourth quarter our business performed better than we expected, as trends continued to improve across many of our product categories and geographies."

Mr. Kelly continued, "In addition to the significant sequential improvement in our constant currency revenue performance that we experienced in the fourth quarter, I am also very pleased to see the continued sequential improvement that occurred in both our adjusted gross and adjusted operating margins, as we believe this positions us well to achieve our longer-term financial objectives."

Mr. Kelly concluded, "As we look forward to 2021, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we remain confident in our diversified product portfolio and in our ability to deliver robust revenue growth, margin expansion and adjusted earnings growth, all while investing in our business to sustain our revenue growth and profitability profile over the long-term."

Americas fourth quarter 2020 net revenues were $419.5 million, an increase of 4.9% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, fourth quarter 2020 net revenues increased 5.0% compared to the prior year period. The increase in constant currency revenue was primarily attributable to increased sales volumes of existing and new products, partially offset by a net decrease in sales volumes of existing products caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We estimate that COVID-19 had a negative impact to fourth quarter 2020 revenue of approximately $29 million, or 7%.

OTHER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS AND KEY PERFORMANCE METRICS

Depreciation expense, amortization of intangible assets and deferred financing charges for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $231.7 million compared to $218.4 million for the prior year.

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2020 were $375.9 million compared to $301.1 million at December 31, 2019.

Net accounts receivable at December 31, 2020 were $395.1 million compared to $418.7 million at December 31, 2019.

Net inventories at December 31, 2020 were $513.2 million compared to $476.6 million at December 31, 2019.

Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $437.1 million during 2020, as compared to $437.1 million during 2019. In 2020, the cash flow from operations reflect an increase in contingent consideration payments and tax payments that were mainly offset by favorable changes in other working capital. The favorable changes in other working capital were driven mainly by higher accounts receivable collections.

2021 OUTLOOK

On a GAAP basis, full year 2021 revenues are expected to increase between 10.0% and 11.5% over 2020, reflecting our estimate of an approximately 2% favorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. On a constant currency basis, the Company estimates that revenues for full year 2021 will increase between 8.0% and 9.5% over 2020.

The Company expects full year 2021 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be between $8.15 and $8.25. The Company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be between $12.50 and $12.70 for full year 2021, representing an increase of between 17.2% and 19.0% over 2020.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

References in this release to the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on adjusted diluted earnings per share include both the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars and the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on foreign currency denominated transactions.

In the discussion of segment results, "new products" refers to products for which we initiated commercial sales within the past 36 months and "existing products" refers to products we have sold commercially for more than 36 months.

Certain financial information is presented on a rounded basis, which may cause minor differences.

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: constant currency revenue growth and adjusted diluted earnings per share. 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 changes in historical constant currency net revenues to historical GAAP net revenues are set forth above under “Net Revenue by Segment" and "Net Revenue by Global Product Category". 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.

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 such changes 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, 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 a 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 C to the reconciliation tables set forth below.

European medical device regulation - The European Union (“EU”) has adopted the EU Medical Device Regulation (“MDR”), which replaces the existing Medical Devices Directive (“MDD”) and imposes more stringent requirements for the marketing and sale of medical devices in the EU, including requirements affecting clinical evaluations, quality systems and post-market surveillance. Manufacturers of currently marketed medical devices will have until May 2021 to meet the MDR requirements, although certain devices that previously satisfied MDD requirements can continue to be marketed in the EU until May 2024, subject to certain limitations. Significantly, the MDR will require the re-registration of previously approved medical devices. As a result, Teleflex will incur expenditures in connection with the new registration of medical devices that previously had been registered under the MDD. Therefore, these expenditures are not considered to be ordinary course expenditures in connection with regulatory matters (in contrast, no adjustment has been made to exclude expenditures related to the registration of medical devices that were not registered previously under the MDD).

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.

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 or certain other discrete changes affecting our deferred tax liability.

(A) Restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items - For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, pre-tax restructuring charges were $17.1 million; pre-tax restructuring related charges were $26.7 million; and pre-tax impairment charges were $21.4 million. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, pre-tax restructuring charges $15.2 million; pre-tax restructuring related charges were $16.3 million; and pre-tax impairment charges were $7.0 million.

(B) Acquisition, integration and divestiture related items - For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, these items primarily related to the reversal of contingent consideration liabilities, partially offset by charges primarily related to our acquisitions of IWG High Performance Conductors, Inc. and Z-Medica, LLC, and the reversal of previously recognized income related to a distributor conversion in Japan. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, these charges primarily related to contingent consideration liabilities and our acquisitions of IWG High Performance Conductors, Inc. and Essential Medical, Inc., partially offset by the gain on sale of a business and another asset. There were no divestiture related activities for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

(C) Other items - For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, other items included expenses associated with a franchise tax audit and prior year tax matters. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, other items included debt modification costs, expenses associated with a franchise tax audit, and product relabeling costs, somewhat offset by a credit associated with an insurance settlement.

(D) MDR - These costs were associated with our efforts to comply with the European Medical Device Regulation.

(E) Intangible amortization expense - For the year ended December 31, 2020, intangible asset amortization expense of $84.4 million is included within cost of goods sold. For the year ended December 31, 2019, we reclassified intangible asset amortization expense of $82.6 million, respectively, from selling, general and administrative expenses to cost of goods sold for comparability.

CAUTION CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements regarding our confidence in our diversified product portfolio and in our ability to deliver robust revenue growth, margin expansion and adjusted earnings growth, all while investing in our business to sustain our revenue growth and profitability profile over the long-term; forecasted 2021 GAAP and constant currency revenue growth and GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share; and our estimates regarding the projected impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on our 2020 financial results. Actual results could differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements due to, among other things, the adverse economic conditions associated with the COVID-19 global health pandemic and the associated financial crisis, stay-at-home and other orders, which may significantly reduce customer spending and which may have a negative impact on the Company’s business, changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers or suppliers; delays or cancellations in shipments; demand for and market acceptance of new and existing products; our inability to provide products to our customers, which may be due to, among other things, events that impact key distributors, suppliers and third-party vendors that sterilize our products; our inability to integrate acquired businesses into our operations, realize planned synergies and operate such businesses profitably in accordance with our expectations; the inability of acquired businesses to generate revenues in accordance with our expectations; our inability to effectively execute our restructuring plans and programs; our inability to realize anticipated savings from restructuring plans and programs; the impact of healthcare reform legislation and proposals to amend, replace or repeal the legislation; changes in Medicare, Medicaid and third party coverage and reimbursements; the impact of enacted tax legislation and related regulations; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on revenues and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; global economic factors, including currency exchange rates, interest rates, trade disputes, sovereign debt issues and the impact of the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union, commonly known as "Brexit"; public health epidemics; difficulties in entering new markets; general economic conditions; and other factors described or incorporated in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K. We expressly disclaim any obligation to update forward-looking statements, except as otherwise specifically stated by us or as required by law or regulation.
