CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a leading medical device and tissue processing company focused on cardiac and vascular surgery, announced today its results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2017. 

Pat Mackin, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We had a very successful third quarter highlighted by the definitive agreement to acquire JOTEC.  The acquisition of JOTEC represents a significant opportunity for us to accelerate our revenue growth, improve our gross and operating margin, diversify our business, and bolster our long-term new product pipeline and R&D capabilities.  When we complete the acquisition of JOTEC, we will have a highly competitive product portfolio focused on treating aortic disease from the aortic root to the iliac arteries with a combined worldwide market opportunity of approximately $2.0 billion."

Mr. Mackin added, "During the third quarter we reached a number of key milestones and our On-X products continued to generate strong results.  We posted double digit top line growth for On-X in our direct markets, including being up 28 percent in Europe, despite not having the AAP available to us.  We also accelerated enrollment in the PerClot U.S. FDA clinical trial and anticipate beginning enrollment in the BioGlue China clinical trial in the near future, with both product trials currently on track for potential regulatory approval sometime in 2019.  Last, we began selling direct to hospitals in Benelux and Canada.  As previously discussed, our results were negatively impacted by the impact of distributor terminations we initiated in anticipation of the JOTEC acquisition, recent weather events and the continued absence of AAP revenue."

"This quarter shows that our strategy is working well and as we anticipated.  We will soon have all the pieces in place to grow CryoLife into a significantly larger company - proven leadership, exceptional products, experienced global direct sales organization and an exciting new product pipeline with a much stronger R&D capability.  As a result, we expect to enter 2018 with excellent momentum."

Revenues for the third quarter of 2017 decreased three percent to $44.0 million, compared to $45.3 million for the third quarter of 2016.  The decrease was primarily driven by a $1.1 million reversal of previously recorded revenues resulting from the Company's decision to terminate certain European distributors in connection with the proposed acquisition of JOTEC, an estimated $1.0 million impact due to recent weather events, and the lack of re-certification of the On-X AAP device.

Revenues for the first nine months of 2017 increased one percent to $136.9 million, compared to $135.4 million for the first nine months of 2016.  The increase was primarily driven by increases in On-X, tissue processing and BioGlue revenues, partially offset by the absence of HeRO and ProCol revenues, and a decrease in TMR revenues.  Non-GAAP revenues for the first nine months of 2017 increased two percent compared to the first nine months of 2016.  A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial metrics is included as part of this press release.

Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $1.3 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted common share, compared to net income of $3.0 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2016.  Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.6 million, or $0.08 per fully diluted common share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.4 million, or $0.13 per fully diluted common share for the third quarter of 2016. 

Net income for the first nine months of 2017 was $6.7 million, or $0.19 per fully diluted common share, compared to net income of $7.9 million, or $0.24 per fully diluted common share, for the first nine months of 2016.  Non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of 2017 was $9.8 million, or $0.29 per fully diluted common share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $12.0 million, or $0.36 per fully diluted common share for the first nine months of 2016. 

The Company is revising its full year 2017 financial guidance, as summarized below.  The revised guidance excludes up to $1.5 million in revenue that the Company anticipates would have been ordered during the fourth quarter from distributors recently notified of their termination, the delay in gaining recertification of our AAP, and does not include any contribution from the operations of JOTEC subsequent to the acquisition closing, which is expected to occur later during the fourth quarter of 2017.  The updated revenue guidance also reflects a temporary disruption in the European sales channel during the fourth quarter due to the commencement of sales force integration and territory realignment, and reduced selling days by the combined sales force resulting from off-site training.  The Company anticipates issuing its initial 2018 financial guidance in early March 2018 during its year-end financial conference call.

All numbers in the table above are GAAP 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 2017 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 revenues include (as applicable) On-X revenues for the period in 2016 prior to the closing of the acquisition and excludes revenues for the HeRO Graft and ProCol product lines for 2016.  The Company's other non-GAAP results exclude (as applicable) business development expenses; gain on sale of business components; amortization expenses; 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 tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results followed by a question and answer session hosted by Mr. Mackin.

To listen to the live teleconference, please dial 201-689-8261 a few minutes prior to 8:00 a.m.  A replay of the teleconference will be available October 31 through November 7, and can be accessed by calling (toll free) 877-660-6853 or 201-612-7415.  The conference number for the replay is 13672507.

Statements made in this press release that look forward in time or that express management's beliefs, expectations, or hopes are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Such forward-looking statements reflect the views of management at the time such statements are made.  These statements include those regarding our revised financial guidance for 2017, our assumptions underlying that guidance, and our ability to keep on track to achieve our 2017 revised financial guidance and to continue to build CryoLife into a higher growth, higher margin company; our belief that the JOTEC acquisition will close during the fourth quarter of 2017 and prove to be the most significant development in CryoLife's history, represents a significant opportunity to accelerate our revenue growth, improve our gross and operating margin, diversify our business and bolster our long term new product pipeline and R&D capabilities; and when we complete the acquisition of JOTEC, CryoLife will have a highly competitive product portfolio focused on treating aortic disease throughout the entire aortic anatomy with a worldwide market opportunity of approximately $2.0 billion; we anticipate beginning enrollment in the BioGlue China clinical trial in the near future and our belief that we are on track for regulatory approval of both PerClot (in the US) and BioGlue (in China) in 2019; our belief that we will soon have all the pieces in place to grow CryoLife into a significantly larger company; and our expectation that will enter 2018 with excellent momentum. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, estimates, and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements.  These risks and uncertainties include that we may be unable to achieve our revised 2017 financial guidance, that the JOTEC acquisition may not be consummated in the fourth quarter of 2017 or at all or will not be one of the most significant developments in CryoLife's history; we may be unable to achieve the anticipated or expected benefits from our anticipated acquisition of JOTEC, including the acceleration of our revenue growth, improvement in our gross and operating margins, the diversification of our business and the strengthening of our long term new product pipeline and R&D capabilities; the estimates of the worldwide market opportunity for JOTEC's current and anticipated aortic products are incorrect; and we may not be able to secure regulatory approval of both PerClot (in the US) and BioGlue (in China) by 2019 or ever.  These risks and uncertainties include the risk factors detailed in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, and our subsequent filings with the SEC. CryoLife does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements.
