GENERAL


Table of Contents

Integra is a world leader in medical devices focused on limiting uncertainty for surgeons so they can concentrate on providing the best patient care. Integra provides customers with clinically relevant, innovative and cost-effective products that improve the quality of life for patients. We focus on cranial and spinal procedures, small bone and joint injuries, the repair and reconstruction of soft tissue, and instruments for surgery.
We manage our business through a combination of product groups and geography, and accordingly, we report our financial results under five reportable segments
- U.S. Instruments, U.S. Neurosurgery, U.S. Extremities, U.S. Spine and Other (which consists of our U.S. Spine and Private Label businesses) and International. We present revenues in the following three product categories: Orthopedics, Neurosurgery and Instruments. Our orthopedics product group includes specialty metal implants for surgery of the extremities, shoulder and spine, orthobiologics products for repair and grafting of bone, dermal regeneration products and tissue-engineered wound dressings and nerve and tendon repair products. Our neurosurgery product group includes, among other things, dural grafts that are indicated for the repair of the dura mater, ultrasonic surgery systems for tissue ablation, cranial stabilization and brain retraction systems, systems for measurement of various brain parameters and devices used to gain access to the cranial cavity and to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid from the ventricles of the brain. Our instruments product group includes a wide range of specialty and general surgical and dental instruments and surgical lighting for sale to hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, and physician, veterinarian and dental practices. We manufacture many of our products in plants located in the United States, Puerto Rico, France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Mexico. We also source most of our handheld surgical instruments and specialty metal and pyrocarbon implants through specialized third-party vendors. In the United States, we have several sales channels. We sell orthopedics products through a large direct sales organization and through specialty distributors focused on their respective surgical specialties. Neurosurgery products are sold through directly employed sales representatives. Instruments products are sold through two sales channels, both directly and through distributors and wholesalers, depending on the customer call point. We sell in the international markets through a combination of a direct sales organization and distributors. We also market certain products through strategic partners in the United States. Our objective is to become a multi-billion dollar diversified global medical technology company that (i) helps patients by limiting uncertainty for medical professionals and (ii) is a high-quality investment for shareholders. We will achieve these goals by delivering on our Brand Promises to our customers worldwide and by becoming a top player in all markets in which we compete. Our strategy includes the following key elements: geographic expansion, disciplined focus and execution, global quality assurance and acquiring or in-licensing products that fit existing sales channels, margin expansion and leveraging platform synergies. We aim to achieve growth in our revenues while maintaining strong financial results. While we pay attention to any meaningful trend in our financial results, we pay particular attention to measurements that are indicative of long-term profitable growth. These measurements include (1) revenue growth (including internal growth and by acquisitions), (2) gross margins on total revenues, (3) operating margins (which we aim to expand as we leverage our existing infrastructure and improve our quality systems), (4) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, and (5) earnings per diluted share of common stock. We believe that we are particularly effective in the following aspects of our business:
• Regenerative Medicine Platform. We have developed numerous product lines through our proprietary collagen matrix and demineralized bone matrix technologies that are sold through every one of our sales channels.

• Diversification and Platform Synergies. Each of our three selling platforms contributes a different strength to our core business. Orthopedics enables us to grow our top line and increase gross margins. Neurosurgery provides stable growth as a market with few elective procedures. The Instruments business has a strong capacity to generate cash flows. We have unique synergies among these platforms, such as our regenerative medicine technology, instrument sourcing capabilities, Group Purchasing Organization ("GPO") contract management and recent enterprise selling platform.

• Unique Sales Footprint. Our sales footprint provides us with a unique set of customer call-points and synergies. Each of our sales channels can benefit from the GPO and Integrated Delivery Network ("IDN") relationships that our Instruments group currently manages. We have market-leading products for neurosurgeons, many of whom also perform spine surgeries, and we have yet to fully leverage those relationships to sell our spine products. We also have


Table of Contents

clinical expertise across all of our channels in the United States, and have an opportunity to expand and leverage this expertise in markets worldwide.
• Ability to Change and Adapt. Our corporate culture is truly what enables us to adapt and reinvent ourselves. We have demonstrated that we can quickly and profitably integrate new products and businesses. This core strength has made it possible for us to grow over the years, and is key to our ability to grow into a multi-billion dollar company.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Executive Summary
Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013, was $28.6 million, or $1.02 per diluted share as compared with net income of $13.2 million or $0.46 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $29.2 million, or $1.05 per diluted share as compared with net income of $28.4 million or $0.99 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 were adversely affected by a voluntary recall of certain collagen-based products manufactured in our Añasco, Puerto Rico facility and the impairment of our U.S. Spine reporting unit goodwill. We incurred higher selling, general and administrative headcount expenses, increased consulting fees and expenses incurred in connection with the implementation of our global ERP system. The effects of the increased expenses noted above were partially offset by a $4.9 million and $2.2 million decrease in our interest expense as a result of the June 2012 repayment of our 2012 Notes and capitalization of a portion of our interest expense into the cost of our capital projects, respectively. Income before taxes includes the following special charges:

The items reported above are reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of operations as follows:

                                      Three Months Ended September 30,     Nine Months Ended September 30,

We typically define special charges as items for which the amounts and/or timing of such expenses may vary significantly from period to period, depending upon our acquisition, integration and restructuring activities, and for which the amounts are non-cash in nature, or for which the amounts are not expected to recur at the same magnitude as we implement certain tax planning

strategies. We believe that given our ongoing strategy of seeking acquisitions, our continuing focus on rationalizing our existing manufacturing and distribution infrastructure and our continuing review of various product lines in relation to our current business strategy, certain of the special charges discussed above could recur with similar materiality in the future. In 2010 we began investing significant resources in the global implementation of a single enterprise resource planning system. We began capitalizing certain costs for the project starting in 2011.
We believe that the separate identification of these special charges provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Investors may find this information useful in assessing comparability of our operating performance from period to period, the business model objectives that management has established, and other companies in our industry. We provide this information to investors so that they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and to use this information in their assessment of our core business and valuation of Integra. Update on Remediation Activities
Remediation activities in our regenerative medicine facility in Plainsboro, New Jersey affected revenues and gross margin in the first three quarters of 2013. We received a warning letter from the FDA in December 2011, related to quality systems and compliance issues at that plant. The letter resulted from an inspection held at that facility in August 2011, and did not identify any new observations that were not provided in the Form 483 that followed the inspection. The warning letter did not restrict our ability to manufacture or ship products, nor did it require the recall of any product. In June and July 2012, the FDA again inspected the regenerative medicine facility. The second inspection closed out on July 30, 2012 and a FDA Form 483 Inspectional Observations was issued. On July 16, 2013, the FDA began an inspection of the Plainsboro facility and focused primarily on the issues raised in the warning letter and in previous inspections of the Plainsboro facility. At the conclusion of the inspection, the FDA found that the Company had addressed the issues raised in the warning letter and previous inspectional observations, and it issued no other inspectional observations. In reaching this conclusion, the FDA determined that the Company's remediation activities were effective and its quality management system was adequate and the warning letter was closed out effective September 24, 2013.

The FDA inspected our neurosurgery manufacturing facility in Andover, England in June 2012. Subsequently, on November 5, 2012, we received a warning letter from the FDA dated November 1, 2012 related to quality systems issues at that facility. The warning letter identified violations related to corrective and preventative actions, process validations, internal quality audits, and internal review of the suitability and effectiveness of the quality system at defined intervals. We filed the FDA warning letter as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K on November 13, 2012. Since the conclusion of the FDA inspection in June 2012, we have undertaken significant efforts to remediate the observations that the FDA has made and continue to do so. We have provided the FDA with monthly status reports and are working cooperatively with the FDA to resolve any outstanding issues.

On February 14, 2013, we received a warning letter from the FDA relating to quality systems issues at our manufacturing facility located in Añasco, Puerto Rico. The letter resulted from an inspection conducted at that facility during October and November 2012. On February 15, 2013 we stopped distribution of our collagen products manufactured in the Añasco facility in order to confirm that we had successfully validated all such products and engaged a third-party consultant having appropriate quality system regulations expertise to confirm such validations. On February 22, 2013 the third-party consultant certified the completeness of such validations and we resumed distribution of collagen products from the Añasco, Puerto Rico facility.

On April 10, 2013, we initiated a voluntary recall of certain products manufactured in our Añasco facility between December 2010 and May 2011 and between November 2012 and March 2013. Specific lots of these products, as described below, were recalled because we identified that there may have been deviations from required processes in their production. We identified through an internal quality assurance review that we may have deviated from a production process during the manufacture of specific lots of collagen products during the periods described. The product lots in question passed all product finished goods testing including endotoxin testing, are sterile, and were tested and accepted for release. However, due to the process deviation, they may have been released with higher levels of endotoxins than permitted by the product specifications. Higher levels of endotoxins may result in a fever in the immediate postoperative period. There have been no reports of patient injuries or other adverse events attributable to the products subject to the recall. We continue to manufacture all such products in our Añasco facility.

We believe that most of the recalled product lots manufactured between December 2010 and May 2011 have already been consumed, and that therefore, the recall of those lots will not have a material financial impact. However, the return of products, manufactured between November 2012 and March 2013, which were substantially sold in the first three months ended March 31, 2013, directly reduced revenues in the nine months ended September 30, 2013 by $3.4 million. As we anticipated, we were


Table of Contents

not able to produce all the affected products quickly enough to meet the demand from customers in the three months ended September 30, 2013. Such supply shortages resulted in lower revenues in the nine months of 2013. As expected, the recall and supply shortages had a significant impact on the U.S. Neurosurgery, U.S. Spine and Other, and International segments during the nine months of 2013. By the end of the third quarter, the Company had significantly reduced its backorders of products manufactured at the Añasco facility and on a consolidated basis from the level that prevailed at the beginning of the quarter.

The recall applied to limited and specific lots of DuraGen® Dural Graft Matrix, DuraGen® Plus Dural Regeneration Matrix, DuraGen® Suturable Dural Regeneration Matrix, DuraGen XS™ Dural Regeneration Matrix, Layershield® Adhesion Barrier Matrix, NeuraWrap™ Nerve Protector, NeuraGen® Nerve Guide, BioMend® Absorbable Collagen Membrane, OraMem® Absorbable Collagen Membrane, BioMend® Extend Absorbable Collagen Membrane, CollaCote® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, CollaTape® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, CollaPlug® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, HeliTape® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, HeliPlug® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, OraTape® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, OraPlug® Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing for Dental Surgery, Instat® Microfibrillar Collagen Hemostat, Helistat® Absorbable Collagen Hemostatic Sponge (ACS/Helistat), and Helitene® Absorbable Collagen Hemostatic Agent. The Absorbable Collagen Sponge (ACS) is not a final product, but a component of a product assembled by another company.

We met with the Office of Compliance at the Center for Devices and Radiological Health on March 26, 2013. We presented our plans for both immediate remediation and our corporate plan for the development and implementation of a single Quality System for the entire Company. We have engaged former FDA professionals as third party consultants to work with us on our remediation plans. We also met with the Office of Compliance at the FDA San Juan, Puerto Rico office to discuss the remediation plans at the Añasco, Puerto Rico facility. We have prioritized senior level quality and regulatory staff to address the quality system improvement plans at all of our facilities. On October 24, 2013, the United States Food and Drug Administration began an inspection of the Añasco facility. We do not expect to comment on or otherwise discuss the FDA inspection until after the conclusion of the inspection.

We have undertaken significant efforts to remediate the observations that the FDA has made and have been working on improving and revising our quality systems. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, we incurred $2.8 million and $7.8 million in remediation activities expenses, respectively, consisting of consulting expenses and other work activities required to complete our remediation activities. For the full year 2013, we expect to spend approximately $8.5 million on our quality systems and remediation activities. We expect to have these activities completed in the last quarter of 2013. We will provide periodic status reports to the FDA and work cooperatively with the agency to resolve any outstanding issues. Revenues and Gross Margin on Product Revenues Our revenues and gross margin on product revenues were as follows:

Three Months Ended September 30, 2013 as Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2012
Revenues and Gross Margin
For the three months ended September 30, 2013 total revenues increased by $3.2 million to $213.2 million from $210.1 million for the same period in 2012. U.S. Neurosurgery revenues were $45.1 million, an increase of 4% from the prior-year period. The increase is primarily attributable to the shipping of nearly all backorders related to our collagen product shortages caused by the first quarter recall. We experienced increases in neuro critical care, cranial stabilization and stereotaxy driven by stronger capital product sales. These increases were partially offset by weaker capital sales in tissue ablation. U.S. Instruments revenues were $41.8 million, an increase of 1% from the prior-year period. In the quarter, we saw low-single digit growth in our alternate site sales and continued to experience sustained growth in sales of our LED surgical headlamp. In addition, we experienced softness in our acute care sales channel due to fewer large orders for hospital starts and expansions. U.S. Extremities revenues were $33.5 million, an increase of 2% from the prior-year period. This increase resulted primarily from a strong growth in sales of our upper and lower extremities businesses. Softness in our dermal and wound care products caused by fewer burn incidents reported by our hospital and surgeon customers largely offset the increase.
U.S. Spine and Other revenues, which include our spine hardware, orthobiologics and private label products, were $46.9 million, a 5% decrease from the prior-year period. Our spine hardware product sales continued to lag the overall market. We saw double-digit growth in our orthobiologics products, led by a strong demand for our Evo3™ products. Sales of our private label products were down from the prior-year period due to the loss of some business to certain customers as related to prolonged recall-related supply shortages. International segment revenues were $45.9 million, an increase of 6% from the prior-year period. Our sales increases around the world were primarily attributable to a substantial growth in our spine implants and acute care instruments. Foreign currency had a negligible impact on our sales in the current quarter.
In addition, the Company announced in October that it was rationalizing product lines and that certain product revenues were being substantially reduced or eliminated within its Private Label business because Integra's customers found other sources during the supply disruptions earlier this year.
Gross margin decreased 1% to $129.1 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013 from $130.5 million for the same period last year. Gross margin as a percentage of total revenue decreased to 60.6% for the third quarter of 2013 from 62.1% for the same period last year. The decrease in gross margin percentage resulted primarily from increased quality costs at our manufacturing facilities and the impact of the manufacturer's excise tax that we capitalize in our inventory and subsequently record in cost of goods sold as these products are sold to third-party customers.
We expect our consolidated gross margin percentage for the full year 2013 to be between 60% and 61%, down compared to 2012. Costs related to the expansion of our regenerative medicine activities, continued downward pressure on our private-label and spine hardware product sales volumes, and the inclusion of the medical device tax will negatively affect our consolidated gross margin. Operating Expenses
The following is a summary of operating expenses as a percent of total revenues:
