CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a leading cardiac and vascular surgery company focused on aortic disease, announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. 

"We had a successful start to the year posting solid financial results and advancing our clinical and R&D programs.  Our strategy of differentiated products focused on select markets, supported by a well-trained direct sales force, is allowing us to continue to take market share," said Pat Mackin, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer.  "Given our strong performance in the first quarter and the expected launch of the initial phase of our next generation products, we remain on track to deliver high single-digit top line growth in 2019.  Our pipeline programs have increased our addressable market opportunity to $3.5 billion, positioning the Company for substantial growth in the coming years."

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Total revenues for the first quarter of 2019 were $67.5 million, reflecting growth of 9%, and 11% on a non-GAAP constant currency basis, both compared to the first quarter of 2018.  The increase was driven by strong revenue growth from JOTEC, On-X, and BioGlue. 

Net loss for the first quarter of 2019 was ($297,000), or ($0.01) per fully diluted common share, compared to a net loss of ($3.9) million, or ($0.11) per fully diluted common share for the first quarter of 2018.  Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.5 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted common share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $793,000, or $0.02 per fully diluted common share for the first quarter of 2018. 

2019 Financial Outlook
CryoLife is reiterating its full-year financial guidance, with total revenues for 2019 expected to be in the range of $280 million to $284 million and non-GAAP earnings per share expected to be between $0.28 and $0.32.  

All numbers are presented on a GAAP basis except where expressly referenced as non-GAAP.  The Company does not provide GAAP income per common share on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty business development and acquisition-related expenses, purchase accounting fair value adjustments, and any unusual gains and losses without unreasonable effort.  These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to results computed in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's financial guidance for 2019 is subject to the risks identified below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures 
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures.  Investors should consider this non-GAAP information in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  In addition, this non-GAAP financial information may not be the same as similar measures presented by other companies.  The Company's non-GAAP results exclude (as applicable) business development and integration expenses, amortization expense, and inventory basis step-up expense.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP presentations provide useful information to investors regarding unusual non-operating transactions, and the operating expense structure of the Company's existing and recently acquired operations, without regard to its on-going efforts to acquire additional complementary products and businesses and the transaction and integration expenses incurred in connection with recently acquired and divested product lines.  The Company believes it is useful to exclude certain expenses because such amounts in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of its business operations or can vary significantly between periods as a result of factors such as acquisitions, or non-cash expense related to amortization of previously acquired tangible and intangible assets.  The Company does, however, expect to incur similar types of expenses in the future, and this non-GAAP financial information should not be viewed as a statement or indication that these types of expenses will not recur.

Webcast and Conference Call Information
The Company will hold a teleconference call and live webcast later today, April 30, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. EDT to discuss the results followed by a question and answer session.  To listen to the live teleconference, please dial 201-689-8261.  A replay of the teleconference will be available through May 7, 2019 and can be accessed by calling (toll free) 877-660-6853 or 201-612-7415.  The Conference ID for the replay is 13690095.

The live webcast and replay can be accessed by going to the Investor Relations section of the CryoLife website at www.cryolife.com and selecting the heading Webcasts & Presentations.
