- Quarterly Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was 35.6% of sales, an increase over the 33.4% in 2013
David Paul, Chairman and CEO said, “We are very pleased with our record sales in the third quarter. This result can be attributed to consistent, steady execution of our growth strategy over the past several quarters, primarily the introduction of innovative technology and the expansion of our sales footprint, both in the U.S. and abroad. EPS was also a record this quarter, as we continue to see operating leverage in all facets of the business, while maintaining our disciplined approach to spending. Lastly, we are excited by the potential of our recently announced acquisition of Transplant Technologies of Texas.”
Third quarter net sales were $117.8 million, as compared to $107.2 million last year, representing a 9.9% increase. Sales in the US and international grew by 8.7% and 23.2%, respectively, over the same quarter in 2013. Third quarter International sales represent 9.5% of total sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income before interest (income)/expense, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, changes in the fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration, provision for litigation and provision for litigation – cost of goods sold, is useful as an additional measure of operating performance, and particularly as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period, as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance, and it removes the effect of our capital structure, asset base, income taxes and interest income and expense. Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. In addition, for the periods ended September 30, 2014 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share, respectively, before provisions for litigation, which is net of the tax effects of such provisions. We believe these non-GAAP measures are also useful indicators of our operating performance, and particularly as additional measures of comparative operative performance from period to period as they remove the effects of litigation, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. We also define the non-GAAP measure of Free Cash Flow as the net cash provided by operating activities less the cash impact of purchases of property and equipment. We believe that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating our overall financial performance for comparative periods as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions.
Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and Free Cash Flow are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures do not include certain expenses that may be necessary to evaluate our liquidity or operating results. Our definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and Free Cash Flow may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
