Exactech CEO and President David Petty said, “We are pleased with our first half performance, which was led by our shoulder and hip implant revenues as demand continued to be strong. Revenues from shoulder implants, our largest operating segment, were up 16% in the first six months and up 18% in the second quarter, which we believe indicate good momentum going forward. Similarly, hip sales were up 8% for the first six months with a strong 13% gain in the second quarter, continuing to reflect the success of our revision hip stem release. Knee revenue was up 3% for the first six months and rose 1% in the quarter. Our strengthened sales team is performing well, and we are continuing to attract new customers. We are continuing to invest aggressively in R&D focused on both new products and innovative production capabilities.
“Worldwide sales increased 7% to $131.4 million for the first half of 2016. U.S. sales were up 8% to $89.2 million compared with $82.5 million in the first six months a year ago. International sales increased 5% to $42.2 million. U.S. sales for the second quarter of 2016 were up 8% to $44.6 million compared with $41.3 million in the second quarter a year ago. International sales increased 7% to $21.5 million from $20.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. U.S. sales represented 67% of total, sales and international sales represented 33% of total sales during the second quarter.
“Our sales channel development, particularly in the U.S., in combination with contributions from new product launches, is creating revenue growth momentum for Exactech. We continue to build inventory for the revision hip, knee and shoulder systems that are being launched this year. Those products contributed modestly to growth in the first six months. We hope to accelerate that in the second half. We returned to industry leading growth with our Equinoxe shoulder product line and look forward to doing first cases with the Vantage total ankle in the second half of the year. Hip growth momentum is strong as we have gained traction with the Alteon tapered wedge hip stem and Integrip porous metal acetabular component,” Petty said.
Chief Financial Officer Jody Phillips said, “Gross margins increased to 69.3% from 68.6% for the second quarter a year ago, primarily due to the strength in our U.S. Extremity revenues, which carry higher margins. Total operating expenses for the quarter increased 9% to $39.2 million; however, as a percentage of sales, remained at 59% for the second quarter of 2016. Sales and marketing expenses increased 11% to $23.8 million, most notably due to ongoing investments in the U.S. sales organization. General and administrative expenses decreased 2% in the second quarter to $5.6 million and research and development expenses increased 16% to $5.3 million during the second quarter.”
Looking forward, Exactech increased its 2016 revenue guidance to $253-$258 million and its diluted EPS target to $1.15–$1.19. For the third quarter ending September 30, 2016, the company anticipates revenues of $58-$60 million and diluted EPS of $0.21-$0.23.

Non-GAAP financial measures – Because we operate internationally, we present the percentage change in sales by reporting segment on a constant currency basis, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We calculate this change on a constant currency basis by translating current period sales at the comparable average historical exchange rates for the same period in the prior year. We believe that presenting the percentage change in sales on a constant currency basis assists in the understanding of actual sales fluctuations by excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.
