NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – Unaudited

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information (Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 270, Interim Reporting) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information necessary for a full presentation of financial position, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results of Greatbatch, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Greatbatch Ltd. (collectively “Greatbatch” or the “Company”), for the periods presented. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, sales, expenses, and related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates. The December 28, 2012 condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited consolidated financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2012. The Company utilizes a fifty-two, fifty-three week fiscal year ending on the Friday nearest December 31st. The second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013 and 2012 each contained 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively, and ended on June 28, and June 29, respectively.

 

2. ACQUISITIONS

NeuroNexus Technologies, Inc.

On February 16, 2012, the Company purchased all of the outstanding common stock of NeuroNexus Technologies, Inc. (“NeuroNexus”) headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI. NeuroNexus is an active implantable medical device design firm specializing in developing and commercializing neural interface technology, components and systems for neuroscience and clinical markets. NeuroNexus has an extensive intellectual property portfolio, core technologies and capabilities to support the development and manufacturing of neural interface devices across a wide range of applications including neuromodulation, sensing, optical stimulation and targeted drug delivery. The aggregate purchase price of NeuroNexus was $13.2 million. Total assets acquired from NeuroNexus were $14.6 million, of which $2.9 million were amortizing intangible assets and $8.9 million was allocated to goodwill.

This transaction was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the operating results of NeuroNexus were included in the Company’s Implantable Medical segment from the date of acquisition and the purchase price was allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their fair values as of the close of the acquisition, with the amount exceeding the fair value of net assets acquired being recorded as goodwill. The purchase price of NeuroNexus consisted of cash payments of $11.7 million and potential future payments of up to an additional $2 million. These future payments are contingent upon the achievement of certain financial and development-based milestones and had an estimated fair value of $1.5 million as of the acquisition date. The valuation of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed from NeuroNexus was finalized during the first quarter of 2013 and did not result in a material adjustment to the original valuation of net assets acquired, including goodwill.

The unaudited pro forma information presents the combined operating results of Greatbatch and NeuroNexus, with the results prior to the acquisition date adjusted to include the pro forma impact of the amortization of acquired intangible assets based on the purchase price allocations, the adjustment to interest expense reflecting the amount borrowed in connection with the acquisition at Greatbatch’s interest rate, and the impact of income taxes on the pro forma adjustments utilizing the applicable statutory tax rate. The unaudited pro forma consolidated basic and diluted earnings per share calculations are based on the consolidated basic and diluted weighted average shares of Greatbatch.

The unaudited pro forma results are presented for illustrative purposes only and do not reflect the realization of potential cost savings, and any related integration costs. Certain cost savings may result from the acquisition; however, there can be no assurance that these cost savings will be achieved. These pro forma results do not purport to be indicative of the results that would have been obtained, or to be a projection of results that may be obtained in the future.

Revolving Line of Credit –The Company has a revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), which provides a $400 million secured revolving credit facility, and can be increased by $200 million upon the Company’s request and approval by the lenders. The Credit Facility also contains a $15 million letter of credit subfacility and a $15 million swingline subfacility. The Credit Facility has a maturity date of June 24, 2016.

The Credit Facility is secured by the Company’s non-realty assets including cash, accounts receivable and inventories. Interest rates under the Credit Facility are, at the Company’s option either at: (i) the prime rate plus the applicable margin, which ranges between 0.0% and 1.0%, based on the Company’s total leverage ratio or (ii) the applicable LIBOR rate plus the applicable margin, which ranges between 1.5% and 3.0%, based on the Company’s total leverage ratio. Loans under the swingline subfacility will bear interest at the prime rate plus the applicable margin, which ranges between 0.0% and 1.0%, based on the Company’s total leverage ratio. The Company is also required to pay a commitment fee, which varies between 0.175% and 0.25% depending on the Company’s total leverage ratio.

The Credit Facility contains limitations on the incurrence of indebtedness, liens and licensing of intellectual property, investments and certain payments. The Credit Facility permits the Company to engage in the following activities up to an aggregate amount of $250 million: 1) engage in permitted acquisitions in the aggregate not to exceed $250 million; 2) make other investments in the aggregate not to exceed $60 million; 3) make stock repurchases not to exceed $60 million in the aggregate; and 4) retire up to $198 million of CSN (defined below). At any time that the total leverage ratio of the Company for the two most recently ended fiscal quarters is less than 2.75 to 1.0, the Company may make an election to reset each of the amounts specified above. Additionally, these limitations can be waived upon the Company’s request and approval of a majority of the lenders. As a result of the repayment of CSN during the first quarter of 2013 (discussed below), as of June 28, 2013, the Company’s ability to engage in these activities was reduced to the aggregate limit of $49 million.

The Credit Facility requires the Company to maintain a rolling four quarter ratio of adjusted EBITDA to interest expense of at least 3.0 to 1.0, and a total leverage ratio of not greater than 4.0 to 1.0. The calculation of adjusted EBITDA and total leverage ratio excludes non-cash charges, extraordinary, unusual, or non-recurring expenses or losses, non-cash stock-based compensation, and non-recurring expenses or charges incurred in connection with permitted acquisitions. As of June 28, 2013, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.

The Credit Facility contains customary events of default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default, a majority of the lenders may declare the outstanding advances and all other obligations under the Credit Facility immediately due and payable.

As of June 28, 2013, the weighted average interest rate on borrowings under the Credit Facility, which does not take into account the impact of the Company’s interest rate swap, was 1.97%. As of June 28, 2013, the Company had $163 million of borrowing capacity available under the Credit Facility. This borrowing capacity may vary from period to period based upon the debt levels of the Company and the level of EBITDA, which impacts the covenant calculations described above.

Interest Rate Swap – From time to time, the Company enters into interest rate swap agreements in order to hedge against potential changes in cash flows on the outstanding borrowings on the Credit Facility. The variable rate received on the interest rate swaps and the variable rate paid on the debt have the same rate of interest, excluding the credit spread, and resets and pays interest on the same date. During 2012, the Company entered into a three-year $150 million interest rate swap, which amortizes $50 million per year and became effective on February 20, 2013. This swap was entered into in order to hedge against potential changes in cash flows on the outstanding Credit Facility borrowings, which are also indexed to the one-month LIBOR rate. This swap is being accounted for as a cash flow hedge. Information regarding the Company’s outstanding interest rate swap as of June 28, 2013 is as follows (dollars in thousands):

The estimated fair value of the interest rate swap agreement represents the amount the Company expects to receive (pay) to terminate the contract. No portion of the change in fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap during the six months ended June 28, 2013 was considered ineffective. The amount recorded as Interest Expense during the three and six months ended June 28, 2013 related to the Company’s interest rate swaps was $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

Convertible Subordinated Notes – In March 2007, the Company completed a private placement of $197.8 million of convertible subordinated notes (“CSN”) at a 5% discount. CSN accrued interest at 2.25% per annum, payable semi-annually, and were due on June 15, 2013. The effective interest rate of CSN, which took into consideration the amortization of the discount and deferred fees related to the issuance of these notes, was 8.5%. The discount on CSN was being amortized to the redemption date utilizing the effective interest method. On February 20, 2013, the Company redeemed all outstanding CSN using funds borrowed under the Credit Facility.

7. DEFINED BENEFIT PLANS

The Company is required to provide its employees located in Switzerland, Mexico and France certain statutorily mandated defined benefits. Under these plans, benefits accrue to employees based upon years of service, position, age and compensation. The defined benefit plan provided to employees located in Switzerland is a funded contributory plan while the plans that provide benefits to employees located in Mexico and France are unfunded and noncontributory. The liability and corresponding expense related to these benefit plans is based on actuarial computations of current and future benefits for employees.

During 2012, the Company transferred most major functions performed at its facilities in Switzerland into other existing facilities. As a result, the Company curtailed its defined benefit plan provided to employees at those Swiss facilities during the third quarter of 2012. In accordance with ASC 715, the gain recognized in connection with this curtailment is realized as the related employees are terminated. As nearly all of the Swiss pension liability is expected to be paid in 2013, the Company moved all Swiss pension plan assets into cash accounts during 2012. Swiss plan assets are expected to be sufficient to cover plan liabilities. During 2013, the Company settled approximately $7.7 million of its defined benefit obligation.

2013 operating unit realignment. In June 2013, the Company initiated a plan to realign its operating structure in order to optimize its continued focus on profitable growth. As part of this initiative, the sales & marketing and operations groups of its Implantable Medical and Electrochem segments were combined into one sales & marketing and one operations group serving the entire Company. Total restructuring charges expected to be incurred in connection with this realignment is between $4.2 million and $5.0 million, of which $0.9 million has been incurred to date. Expenses related to this initiative will be recorded within the applicable segment and corporate cost centers that the expenditures relate to and include the following:

 

   

Severance and retention: $3.0 million - $3.2 million; and

 

   

Other: $1.2 million – $1.8 million.

Other costs primarily consist of relocation, recruitment and travel expenditures expected to be incurred in connection with the 2013 operating unit realignment.

Orthopaedic facility optimization. In 2010, the Company began updating its Indianapolis, IN facility to streamline operations, consolidate two buildings, increase capacity, further expand capabilities and reduce dependence on outside suppliers. This initiative was completed in 2011.

In 2011, the Company began construction on an orthopaedic manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, IN and transferred the manufacturing operations being performed at its Columbia City, IN facility into this new facility. This initiative was completed in 2012.

During 2012, the Company transferred most major functions performed at its facilities in Orvin and Corgemont, Switzerland into existing facilities in Fort Wayne, IN and Tijuana, Mexico. In connection with this consolidation, in 2012, the Company entered into an agreement to sell assets related to certain non-core Swiss orthopaedic product lines to an independent third party including inventory, machinery, equipment, customer lists and technology related to these product lines. As these product lines were considered a business, goodwill was allocated to the transaction. As these product lines did not have cash flows that were clearly distinguishable, both operationally and for financial reporting purposes, from the rest of the Company, they were not considered discontinued operations. This transaction closed in the first quarter of 2013 and no additional loss on sale was recognized. During 2013, the Company received payments totaling $3.2 million in connection with this transaction and the third party assumed $2.4 million of severance liabilities.

The total capital investment expected for these initiatives is between $25 million and $30 million, of which $21.8 million has been expended to date. Total expense expected to be incurred for these initiatives is between $39 million and $40 million, of which $38.4 million has been incurred to date. All expenses will be recorded within the Implantable Medical segment and are expected to include the following:

 

   

Severance and retention: approximately $11 million;

 

   

Accelerated depreciation and asset write-offs: approximately $15 million; and

 

   

Other: $13 million - $14 million.

Other costs include production inefficiencies, moving, revalidation, personnel, training and travel costs associated with these consolidation projects.

Medical device facility optimization. Near the end of 2011, the Company initiated plans to upgrade and expand its manufacturing infrastructure in order to support its medical device strategy. This includes the transfer of certain product lines to create additional capacity for the manufacture of medical devices, expansion of two existing facilities, as well as the purchase of equipment to enable the production of medical devices. These initiatives are expected to be completed over the next two years. Total capital investment under these initiatives is expected to be between $15 million and $20 million of which approximately $11.8 million has been expended to date. Total expenses expected to be incurred on these projects is between $2.0 million and $3.0 million, of which $1.8 million has been incurred to date. All expenses will be recorded within the Implantable Medical segment and are expected to include the following:

 

   

Production inefficiencies, moving and revalidation: $0.5 million - $1.0 million;

 

   

Personnel: $1.0 million - $1.5 million; and

 

   

Other: approximately $1.0 million.

Acquisition and integration costs. During 2013 and 2012, the Company incurred costs related to the integration of Micro Power Electronics, Inc. and NeuroNexus, which were acquired in December 2011 and February 2012, respectively. These expenses were primarily for retention bonuses, travel costs in connection with integration efforts, training, severance, and the change in fair value of the contingent consideration recorded in connection with these acquisitions.

Asset dispositions, severance and other. During 2013 and 2012, the Company recorded write-downs in connection with various asset disposals, net of insurance proceeds received, if any. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2012, the Company incurred $1.2 million of costs related to the relocation of its global headquarters to Frisco, Texas.

 

10. INCOME TAXES

The income tax provision for interim periods is determined using an estimate of the annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items, if any, that are taken into account in the relevant period. Each quarter, the estimate of the annual effective tax rate is updated, and if the estimated effective tax rate changes, a cumulative adjustment is made. There is a potential for volatility of the effective tax rate due to several factors, including changes in the mix of the pre-tax income and the jurisdictions to which it relates, changes in tax laws and foreign tax holidays, business reorganizations, settlements with taxing authorities and foreign currency fluctuations.

As of June 28, 2013, the balance of unrecognized tax benefits is approximately $1.1 million. It is reasonably possible that a reduction of up to $0.2 million of the balance of unrecognized tax benefits may occur within the next twelve months as a result of potential audit settlements. Approximately $0.9 million of the balance of unrecognized tax benefits would favorably impact the effective tax rate, net of federal benefit on state issues, if recognized.

As a result of the repayment of CSN during the first quarter of 2013, the Company reclassified $30.4 million of Long-Term Deferred Income Taxes to Income Taxes Payable of which approximately $11.5 million was paid in the second quarter of 2013.

 

11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Litigation The Company is a party to various legal actions arising in the normal course of business. While the Company does not believe that the ultimate resolution of any such pending actions will have a material effect on its results of operations, financial position, or cash flows, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties. If an unfavorable ruling were to occur, there exists the possibility of a material impact in the period in which the ruling occurs.

During 2012, Electrochem and several other unaffiliated parties were named as defendants in a personal injury and wrongful death action filed in the 113th Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas. The complaint seeks damages alleging marketing defects and failure to warn, negligence and gross negligence relating to a product Electrochem manufactured and sold to a customer, one of the other named defendants, which, in turn, incorporated the Electrochem product into its own product which it sold to its customer, another named defendant. The cost of defense in this matter is the responsibility of Electrochem’s customer. Electrochem also has product liability insurance coverage. Electrochem believes that no liability will be incurred on this litigation, that it has meritorious defenses and it intends to vigorously defend the matter. Given the early stages of this action, the amount of loss or range of possible loss cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

Product Warranties The Company generally warrants that its products will meet customer specifications and will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. The change in aggregate product warranty liability is as follows (in thousands):

Contractual Obligations – Contractual obligations are defined as agreements that are enforceable and legally binding on the Company and that specify all significant terms, including: fixed or minimum obligations; fixed or minimum price provisions; and the approximate timing of the transaction. The Company’s contractual obligations are normally fulfilled within short time horizons. The Company also enters into blanket orders with vendors that have preferred pricing and terms, however these orders are normally cancelable by us without penalty. As of June 28, 2013, the total contractual obligations of the Company are approximately $26.9 million and will primarily be funded by existing cash and cash equivalents, cash flow from operations, or the Credit Facility. The Company also enters into contracts for outsourced services; however, the obligations under these contracts were not significant and the contracts generally contain clauses allowing for cancellation without significant penalty.

14. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

Fair value measurement standards apply to certain financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis (each reporting period). For the Company, these financial assets and liabilities include its derivative instruments and accrued contingent consideration. The Company does not have any nonfinancial assets or liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

Foreign currency contracts - The fair value of foreign currency contracts are determined through the use of cash flow models that utilize observable market data inputs to estimate fair value. These observable market data inputs include foreign exchange rate and credit spread curves. In addition to the above, the Company receives fair value estimates from the foreign currency contract counterparty to verify the reasonableness of the Company’s estimates. The Company’s foreign currency contracts are categorized in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of the Company’s foreign currency contracts will be realized as Cost of Sales as the inventory, which the contracts are hedging the cash flows to produce, is sold, of which approximately $0.5 million is expected to be realized within the next twelve months.

Interest rate swap - The fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap outstanding at June 28, 2013 was determined through the use of a cash flow model that utilizes observable market data inputs. These observable market data inputs include LIBOR, swap rates, and credit spread curves. In addition to the above, the Company received a fair value estimate from the interest rate swap counterparty to verify the reasonableness of the Company’s estimate. This fair value calculation was categorized in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap will be realized as Interest Expense as interest on the Company’s Credit Facility is accrued.

Accrued contingent consideration – In circumstances where an acquisition involves a contingent consideration arrangement, the Company recognizes a liability equal to the fair value of the contingent payments it expects to make as of the acquisition date. The Company re-measures this liability each reporting period and records changes in the fair value through Other Operating Expenses, Net. Increases or decreases in the fair value of the contingent consideration liability can result from changes in discount periods and rates, as well as changes in the timing, amount of, or the likelihood of achieving the applicable milestones.

The fair value of accrued contingent consideration recorded by the Company represents the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration the Company expects to pay to the former shareholders of NeuroNexus based upon the achievement of certain financial and development-based milestones. The fair value of the contingent consideration liability was estimated by discounting to present value, contingent payments expected to be made. The Company’s accrued contingent consideration is categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. Changes in accrued contingent consideration were as follows (in thousands):

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis

Fair value standards also apply to certain nonfinancial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis. A summary of the valuation methodologies for the Company’s assets and liabilities measured on a nonrecurring basis is as follows:

Long-lived assets - The Company reviews the carrying amount of its long-lived assets to be held and used, other than goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets, for potential impairment whenever certain indicators are present such as; a significant decrease in the market price of the asset or asset group; a significant change in the extent or manner in which the long-lived asset or asset group is being used or in its physical condition; a significant change in legal factors or in the business climate that could affect the value of the long-lived asset or asset group, including an action or assessment by a regulator; an accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; a current-period operating or cash flow loss combined with a history of operating or cash flow losses or a projection or forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with the use of the long-lived asset or asset group; or a current expectation that it is more likely than not the long-lived asset or asset group will be sold or otherwise disposed of significantly before the end of its previously estimated useful life. The term more likely than not refers to a level of likelihood that is more than 50 percent.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – Unaudited

 

If an indicator is present, potential recoverability is measured by comparing the carrying amount of the long-lived asset or asset group to its related total future undiscounted cash flows. If the carrying value is not recoverable, the asset or asset group is considered to be impaired. Impairment is measured by comparing the asset or asset group’s carrying amount to its fair value, which is determined by using independent appraisals or discounted cash flow models. The discounted cash flow model requires inputs such as a risk-adjusted discount rate, terminal values, operating budgets, long-term strategic plans and remaining useful lives of the asset or asset group. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group exceeds the fair value, the carrying value is written down to the fair value in the period identified. The Company did not record any impairment charge related to its long-lived assets, during the first six months of 2013 and 2012.

Goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets – The Company assess the impairment of goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets on the last day of each fiscal year, or more frequently if certain indicators are present as described above under long-lived assets. The Company assesses goodwill for impairment by comparing the fair value of its reporting units to their carrying amounts. If the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value, an impairment loss is recorded to the extent that the implied fair value of the goodwill within the reporting unit is less than its carrying value. Fair values for reporting units are determined based on discounted cash flow models and market multiples. The discounted cash flow model requires inputs such as a risk-adjusted discount rate, terminal values, operating budgets, and long-term strategic plans. The fair value from the discounted cash flow model is then combined, based on certain weightings, with market multiples in order to determine the fair value of the reporting unit. These market multiples include revenue multiples and multiples of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Indefinite-lived intangible assets are assessed for impairment by comparing the fair value of the intangible asset to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset exceeds the fair value, the carrying value is written down to the fair value in the period identified. The fair value of indefinite-lived intangible assets is determined by using a discounted cash flow model. The discounted cash flow model requires inputs such as a risk-adjusted discount rate, royalty rates, operating budgets, and long-term strategic plans.

The Company did not record any impairment charge related to its goodwill or indefinite-lived intangible assets, during the first six months of 2013 and 2012. Note 5 “Intangible Assets” contains additional information on the Company’s intangible assets.

Cost and equity method investments - The Company holds investments in equity and other securities that are accounted for as either cost or equity method investments and are classified as Other Assets. The total carrying value of these investments is reviewed quarterly for changes in circumstance or the occurrence of events that suggest the Company’s investment may not be recoverable. The fair value of cost or equity method investments is not adjusted if there are no identified events or changes in circumstances that may have a material effect on the fair value of the investments. Gains and losses realized on cost and equity method investments are recorded in Other (Income) Expense, Net, unless separately stated. The aggregate recorded amount of cost and equity method investments at June 28, 2013 and December 28, 2012 was $9.7 million and $9.1 million, respectively. The Company recorded losses related to its cost and equity method investments of $0.6 million and $0 during the first six months of 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Electrochem offers its customers components, consultation, design, development and testing for medical device applications, in high-value markets, including those that support the transition of delivery of health care from clinical to outpatient and home settings, as well as those that enhance the quality of life for an aging population. Examples of these devices include powered surgical tools, automated external defibrillators, portable ultrasound devices, portable oxygen concentrators, and ventilators, among others. Electrochem provides cell and battery pack configurations for rechargeable and non-rechargeable battery power systems, charging and docking stations, and power supplies, for devices where failure is not an option.

As discussed further in Note 9 “Other Operating Expenses, Net,” in June 2013, the Company initiated a plan to realign its operating structure in order to optimize its continued focus on profitable growth. As part of this initiative, the sales & marketing and operations groups of its Implantable Medical and Electrochem segments were combined into one sales & marketing and one operations group serving the entire Company. As a result of this realignment initiative, which includes changing the management and reporting structure, the Company is re-evaluating its operating and reportable segments.

The Company defines segment income from operations as sales less cost of sales including amortization and expenses attributable to segment-specific selling, general, administrative, research, development, engineering and other operating activities. Segment income also includes a portion of non-segment specific selling, general, and administrative expenses based on allocations appropriate to the expense categories. The remaining unallocated operating and other expenses are primarily administrative corporate headquarters expenses and capital costs that are not allocated to reportable segments. Transactions between the two segments are not significant.

16. IMPACT OF RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In the normal course of business, management evaluates all new accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), Securities and Exchange Commission, Emerging Issues Task Force, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants or other authoritative accounting bodies to determine the potential impact they may have on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Based upon this review except as noted below, management does not expect any of the recently issued accounting pronouncements, which have not already been adopted, to have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

On February 5, 2013, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2013-02, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.” This ASU added new disclosure requirements regarding the effect of significant amounts reclassified from each component of accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”) based on its source and the income statement line items affected by the reclassification. This ASU gave companies the flexibility to present the information either in the notes or parenthetically on the face of the financial statements provided that all of the required information is presented in a single location. This ASU was effective prospectively for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012. This ASU was adopted during the first quarter of 2013 and did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as it only changed the disclosures surrounding AOCI.

In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU No. 2012-02, “Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment.” This ASU simplified the guidance for testing the decline in the realizable value (impairment) of indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill. The amendment allowed an organization the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test. An organization electing to perform a qualitative assessment is no longer required to calculate the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset unless the organization determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is “more likely than not” that the asset is impaired. The amendments in this ASU were effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. This ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as it only impacted the timing of when the Company was required to perform the two-step impairment test of its indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill.

In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-11 “Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities.” This ASU requires companies to provide expanded disclosures about trading in financial instruments and related derivatives, and creates new disclosure requirements about the nature of an entity’s rights of offset and related arrangements associated with its financial instruments and derivative instruments. The disclosure requirements are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods therein, with retrospective application required. This ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as it only changes the disclosures surrounding the Company’s offsetting assets and liabilities.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Our Business

We operate our business in two reportable segments – Implantable Medical and Electrochem Solutions (“Electrochem”). The Implantable Medical segment is comprised of our Greatbatch Medical and QiG Group and designs and manufactures medical devices and components for the cardiac, neuromodulation, vascular and orthopaedic markets. The Implantable Medical segment offers complete medical devices including design, development, manufacturing, regulatory submission and supporting worldwide distribution, which is facilitated through the QiG Group and leverages the component technology of Greatbatch Medical. The devices designed and developed by the QiG Group are manufactured by Greatbatch Medical. The Implantable Medical segment also offers individual components for implantable medical devices as well as value-added assembly and design engineering services for its component products. Examples of these components include batteries, capacitors, filtered and unfiltered feedthroughs, machined components, enclosures, leads, introducers, catheters, as well as orthopaedic implants, instruments and cases and trays.

Electrochem is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing total power solutions for critical applications with market-leading OEMs, largely in the portable medical and energy space. Electrochem offers its customers components, consultation, design, development and testing for medical device applications in high-value markets, including those that support the transition of delivery of health care from clinical to outpatient and home settings, as well as those that enhance the quality of life for an aging population. Examples of these devices include powered surgical tools, automated external defibrillators, portable ultrasound devices, portable oxygen concentrators, and ventilators, among others. Electrochem provides cell and battery pack configurations for rechargeable and non-rechargeable battery power systems, charging and docking stations, and power supplies, for devices where failure is not an option.

As discussed in Note 9 “Other Operating Expenses, Net” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 1 of this report, in June 2013, we initiated a plan to realign our operating structure in order to optimize our continued focus on profitable growth. Under this initiative, the sales & marketing and operations groups of our Implantable Medical and Electrochem segments were combined into one sales & marketing and one operations group serving the entire Company. As a result of this realignment initiative, which includes changing the management and reporting structure, we are re-evaluating our operating and reportable segments.

Our Customers

Implantable Medical customers include leading original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), in alphabetical order here and throughout this report, such as Biotronik, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Smith & Nephew, Sorin Group, St. Jude Medical, Stryker and Zimmer. The nature and extent of our selling relationships with each OEM varies in terms of breadth of products purchased, purchased product volumes, length of contractual commitment, ordering patterns, inventory management and selling prices. During the six months ended June 28, 2013, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic and St. Jude Medical collectively accounted for 50% of our total Company sales.

Electrochem’s customers are primarily companies involved in demanding markets with sophisticated total power solutions needs, such as in the portable medical and energy markets. Some of Electrochem’s larger OEM customers are, in alphabetical order here and throughout this report, Carefusion, Covidien, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Halliburton, Phillips Healthcare, Physio-Control, and Weatherford International.

Financial Overview

Second quarter 2013 sales increased $4.8 million or 3% over the prior year period to a record $171.3 million. When adjusting 2012 for the divestiture of certain non-core orthopaedic product lines at the beginning of 2013 ($4.4 million), sales increased $9.2 million or 6% organically. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations did not have a material impact on the current quarter in comparison to the prior year period. This 6% organic constant currency growth was primarily due to above market growth (5% growth) from our cardiac/neuromodulation product line, implant market share gains, which helped drive 14% orthopaedics product line organic growth, and strength in our portable medical product line, which is benefitting from new product launches into this higher growth market. This growth was partially offset by the timing of orthopaedic plant validations in connection with the closing of our Swiss facilities. For the first six months of 2013, sales decreased 2% to $319.6 million compared to the prior year period. On an organic constant currency basis, sales for the first half of 2013 increased 1% in comparison to 2012 as the strong second quarter 2013 results were partially offset by slower demand in the first quarter of 2013 due to customer inventory adjustments and the impact of our Swiss consolidation. For the remainder of 2013, we expect revenue to continue to be strong as orthopaedic backlog continues to be relieved, and new product introductions are commercialized in our cardiac and portable medical product lines.

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Additionally, we consistently report and discuss in our quarterly earnings releases and investor presentations adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share. These adjusted amounts consist of GAAP amounts excluding the following adjustments to the extent they occur during the period: (i) acquisition-related charges, (ii) facility consolidation, optimization, manufacturing transfer and system integration charges, (iii) asset write-down and disposition charges, (iv) severance charges in connection with corporate realignments or a reduction in force, (v) litigation charges and gains, (vi) the impact of non-cash charges to interest expense due to the accounting change for convertible debt, (vii) unusual or infrequently occurring items, (viii) certain R&D expenditures (such as medical device design verification (“DVT”) expenses in connection with developing our neuromodulation platform), (ix) gain/loss on the sale of investments, (x) the income tax (benefit) related to these adjustments and (xi) certain tax charges related to the consolidation of our Swiss Orthopaedic facility. We believe that reporting these amounts provides important supplemental information to our investors and creditors seeking to understand the financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Additionally, certain performance-based compensation incentives provided to our executives are determined utilizing these adjusted amounts.

GAAP operating income for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013 was $17.1 million and $31.5 million, respectively, compared to $11.1 million and $22.3 million, respectively, for the comparable 2012 periods. These increases were primarily due to increased gross profit, lower net research, development and engineering (“RD&E”) investment and lower consolidation and optimization expenses partially offset by higher selling, general, and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses. Adjusted operating income, which excludes consolidation, optimization and DVT costs, increased 19% and 22%, respectively, for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013 to $22.2 million and $41.5 million, respectively. The increases in gross profit for the quarter and year-to-date periods was driven primarily by our higher sales volumes as well as cost savings and production efficiencies, including savings realized from the consolidation of our Swiss orthopaedic facilities and product line rationalizations, which benefitted our gross margin by approximately $1.3 million and $2.6 million, respectively, in comparison to 2012. The decrease in our RD&E is primarily a result of our efforts, beginning in 2012, to focus on medical RD&E investment and discontinue certain non-core RD&E projects as well as increased customer cost reimbursements in the first quarter of 2013. The increase in SG&A for the second quarter and year-to-date periods was primarily due to the additional cost from our investment in sales and marketing resources to drive future core business growth, as well as increased performance based compensation. These increases were partially offset by synergies realized from our acquisitions and benefits from the Swiss orthopaedic facility consolidation.

Financial Guidance

We are encouraged by our strong second quarter revenue performance, but continue to believe our full year sales will be at the lower end of our revenue guidance provided at the beginning of the year of $660 to $680 million. If achieved, this would result in organic revenue growth of 5% - 8% after adjusting for the disposition of $15 million of non-core orthopaedic product lines at the end of 2012. Our manufacturing operations continue to perform well. As a result, we now believe our adjusted operating margin will approximate 13.0% for the total year and our effective adjusted tax rate will be around 33%. Because of our current higher stock price we are estimating that our diluted outstanding shares for EPS purposes will be approximately 25.0 million for 2013.

Based upon these expectations and our results for the first half of the year, we now believe that our 2013 adjusted diluted EPS guidance range will be $2.05 to $2.15 per share an increase from the previously disclosed $2.00 to $2.05 per share.

Our CEO’s View

We are very pleased with our performance in the second quarter as adjusted diluted EPS increased 30% to $0.56 per share. These improvements were fueled by:

 

   

Constant currency organic revenue growth of 6%,

 

   

A 220 basis points improvement in gross margin,

 

   

A 2% reduction in our operating expenses, and

 

   

An effective tax rate of 35% for the quarter.

Additionally, the strategy laid out at our Investor Day earlier this year continues to be implemented aggressively as we establish Greatbatch as a growth company where we have a competitive advantage in the markets we serve, we continue to introduce innovative product offerings into the market place, and where organic growth represents a significant percentage of recurring revenue growth.

Our new organization structure announced in June further enables Greatbatch to accomplish these strategic growth objectives and achieve our goal of 5% organic revenue growth. Our sales and marketing investments are bearing fruit. Additionally, we will maintain a disciplined approach to identifying, executing, and integrating tuck-in acquisitions to enhance our core business. Our approach to commercializing Algostim has not changed, and is proceeding as planned with regulatory submissions.

Greatbatch continues on its evolution and has a profitable core business that is able to adapt to our growth vision. Our core business is well positioned because OEM customers leverage our portfolio of intellectual property, and we are building a healthy pipeline of diverse medical technology opportunities.

Over the last eight years Greatbatch has successfully integrated and consolidated its businesses and facilities. This has led us to an inflection in which we can build upon our strong operations foundation to establish Greatbatch as a growth company. Our new organization structure allows dedicated resources to focus on growth. Combined with our stronger discipline to ensure we have adequate returns for all projects, the new organizational structure will help us to continue to improve our bottom line performance and our return on invested capital. In this new structure we have retained and enhanced the leadership team and the capabilities that have driven our operational excellence. This foundation, which we stand on when working with our OEM partners, will continue to drive our growth strategy.

Product Development

Implantable Medical - We provide our Implantable Medical customers with complete medical devices. This medical device strategy is being facilitated through the QiG Group and includes strategic equity investments and medical devices developed independently as well as in conjunction with our OEM partners. While we do not intend to discuss each of these projects individually each quarter, we will discuss significant milestones as they occur. Some of the medical device projects that we currently are working on include:

Cardiovascular portfolio – As previously disclosed, near the end of 2012, Greatbatch Medical voluntarily decided to perform a field action on two of its cardiovascular medical devices as a result of manufacturing irregularities observed during inspection. This problem was identified after implementing a new inspection tool for use in performing inspections. Revenue on these medical devices, which totaled $3.3 million in 2012, is expected to be temporarily delayed until the second half of 2013.

Neuromodulation portfolio – With regards to Algostim, our spinal cord stimulator for the treatment of chronic pain in the trunk and limbs, everything is moving along on schedule. We have accelerated our timeline for CE Mark which we now expect to submit in early 2014, and our plans to submit our literature based PMA later this year is on course. Operationally, we are finalizing contracts with key suppliers and collaboration continues with JPMorgan who is assisting us in identifying commercial partners.

Approximately $0.5 million of the NeuroNexus Technologies, Inc. (“NeuroNexus”) acquisition purchase price in February 2012 was allocated to the estimated fair value of acquired in process research and development (“IPR&D”). These projects are expected to generate cash flows but have not yet reached technological feasibility, and thus were classified as an indefinite-lived intangible asset until the completion or abandonment of the associated projects. The value assigned to IPR&D related to the development of micro-electrodes for deep brain mapping and electrocorticography. There have been no significant changes from our original estimates with regards to these projects.

Electrochem - Electrochem continues to win new customers, new applications and next generation products. Our core competencies enable us to be well-positioned to win existing share and additional new product introductions based on our experience in providing solutions, our customer relationships, our investment in technology and facilities to further expand our capabilities, our capacity to service our customers, and our legacy of delivering highly reliable and innovative solutions to the medical marketplace.

The 2012 growth in Electrochem was driven by successful product launches into the higher growth, higher value portable medical market. Gaining better access to this attractive market is one of our strategic priorities as it provides us with a significant opportunity for growth given its $1 billion market size. Additionally, this market is benefiting from favorable market trends as patient care shifts from clinical settings to the home and as an aging population drives the need for lightweight and portable devices for patients and caregivers. These favorable trends are expected to allow this market to grow faster than our legacy markets over the next several years. Finally, this market is also attractive to us given that it has long product life cycles that should provide stability and diversification to our revenue base.

Cost Savings and Consolidation Efforts

In 2013 and 2012, we recorded charges in Other Operating Expenses, Net related to cost savings and consolidation efforts. These initiatives were undertaken to improve our operational efficiencies and profitability. Additional information regarding the timing, cash flow impact and amount of future expenditures is set forth in Note 9 “Other Operating Expenses, Net” of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 1 of this report.

In June 2013, the Company initiated a plan to realign its operating structure in order to optimize its continued focus on profitable growth. As part of this initiative, the sales & marketing and operations groups of our Implantable Medical and Electrochem segments were combined into one sales & marketing and one operations group serving the entire Company. Total restructuring charges expected to be incurred in connection with this realignment is between $4.2 million to $5.0 million, of which $0.9 million has been incurred to date. Expenses related to this initiative will be recorded within the applicable segment and corporate cost centers to which the expenditures relate. When fully implemented, this plan is expected to result in annual savings of approximately $7.0 to $7.7 million.

In addition, in 2010, we initiated a multi-faceted plan to further enhance, optimize and leverage our orthopaedics operations. This plan includes the construction of an orthopaedic manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, IN, updating our Indianapolis, IN facility to streamline operations, increase capacity, and further expand capabilities, and the transfer of most major functions performed at our facilities in Orvin and Corgemont, Switzerland into our Fort Wayne, IN and Tijuana, Mexico facilities. The total capital investment expected for these initiatives is between $25 million and $30 million, of which $21.8 million has been expended to date. Total expense expected to be incurred for these initiatives is between $39 million and $40 million, of which $38.4 million has been incurred to date.

Near the end of 2011, we initiated plans to optimize and expand our manufacturing infrastructure in order to support our medical device strategy. This included the transfer of certain product lines to lower cost facilities, expansion of two of our existing facilities, as well as the purchase of equipment to create additional capacity for the manufacture of medical devices and create additional cost savings. Total capital investment under these initiatives is expected to be between $15 million and $20 million, of which approximately $11.8 million has been expended to date. Total expenses expected to be incurred on these projects is between $2.0 million and $3.0 million, of which $1.8 million has been incurred to date.

These orthopaedic and medical device initiatives are expected to be completed over the next year and are expected to generate approximately $10 million to $15 million of annual cost savings and increase our capacity in order to support our growth and the manufacturing of complete medical devices.

In 2011, we initiated plans to upgrade our existing global ERP system. This initiative is expected to be completed over the next year. Total capital investment under this initiative is expected to be approximately $4 million to $5 million, of which approximately $3.9 million has been expended to date. Total expenses expected to be incurred on this initiative is between $6 million to $7 million, of which $5.4 million has been incurred to date.

Sales

Implantable Medical – Cardiac and neuromodulation sales for the second quarter of 2013 increased 5% compared to the prior year to $84.0 million. This increase was driven by stronger market performance and continued deepening relations with OEM partners. Cardiac and Neuromodulation revenues for the first half of 2013 were consistent with the comparable 2012 period. We continue to see an increased pace of product development opportunities from our cardiac customers. We believe that these opportunities, combined with our increased sales and marketing resources, will allow the Company to continue to grow this product line faster than the underlying market.

Orthopaedic sales of $32.3 million and $62.0 million for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013 declined 2% and 3%, respectively, versus the comparable 2012 periods. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company divested certain non-core orthopaedic product lines which reduced quarter and year-to-date 2013 orthopaedic revenue by approximately $4.4 million and $8.7 million, respectively, in comparison to the prior year periods. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations did not have a material impact on the second quarter or year-to-date results. On a constant currency organic basis, orthopaedic product line sales increased 14% and 12% in comparison to the prior year second quarter and year-to-date periods, respectively, which was primarily due to orthopaedic hip and shoulder implant market share gains and new customer wins, partially offset by the timing of plant validations in connection with the transfer of operations from our Swiss facilities to other Greatbatch facilities. This consolidation is expected to benefit sales over the next two quarters as backlog is relieved.

Vascular sales decreased to $12.2 million and $22.9 million for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013, respectively, and were primarily due to the previously communicated voluntary recall of two vascular medical devices near the end of 2012, which are on track to be back on the market in the second half of 2013, and customer inventory adjustments.

Electrochem – Second quarter 2013 Electrochem sales increased 4% to $42.7 million compared to $41.2 million for the comparable 2012 period. This increase was primarily due to a 9% increase in portable medical sales, which is benefitting from new product launches into this higher growth market. For the year-to-date period Electrochem sales decreased 4% to $79.6 million as growth in our portable medical product line was more than offset by declines in our energy and other Electrochem product line sales. This decrease was primarily a result of tough comparables in our energy and other product lines. Additionally, inventory builds and product launches in the fourth quarter of 2012 resulted in customers having lower ordering levels for the first half of 2013. We expect this higher growth rate in our portable medical product line to continue for the remainder of the year given the favorable market demographics and new product launches.

Net RD&E for the 2013 second quarter and year-to-date periods decreased $0.1 million and $2.9 million, respectively, versus the comparable 2012 periods. The overall decrease is a result of the Company’s efforts, beginning in 2012, to focus medical device R&D investment and discontinuing certain non-core R&D projects, as well as higher customer cost reimbursements in the first quarter of 2013. DVT expenses totaled $1.2 million ($3.0 million year-to-date) for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $1.6 million ($2.6 million year-to-date) for the comparable 2012 period. In total, medical device related expenses declined $0.9 million ($1.8 million year-to-date) from the second quarter of 2012 to the second quarter of 2013. The Company’s medical device technology investment is focused on successfully commercializing Algostim and being selective in opportunities that leverage our strengths in the core business units and drive exceptional and sustainable growth. Additionally, the Company continues to seek strategic partners to share in the costs of RD&E and reduce the impact on the bottom line.

(a) Refer to “Cost Savings and Consolidation Efforts” section of this Item and Note 9 “Other Operating Expenses, Net” of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 1 of this report for disclosures related to the timing and level of remaining expenditures for these initiatives.
(b) During 2013 and 2012, we incurred costs related to the integration of Micro Power Electronics, Inc. and NeuroNexus. These expenses were primarily for retention bonuses, travel costs in connection with integration efforts, training, severance, and the change in fair value of the contingent consideration recorded in connection with these acquisitions.
(c) During 2013 and 2012, we recorded write-downs in connection with various asset disposals, net of insurance proceeds received, if any. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2012, the Company incurred $1.2 million of costs related to the relocation of its global headquarters to Frisco, Texas.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for the second quarter of 2013 decreased $3.0 million in comparison to the prior year primarily due to lower discount amortization as a result of the repayment of our convertible subordinated notes during the first quarter of 2013. During the first quarter of 2013 we recognized an additional $2.2 million of convertible subordinated notes discount amortization over the comparable period of 2012 due to the early retirement of those notes. Convertible subordinated note discount amortization was consistent for the year-to-date period. However, interest expense for the year-to-date period was $0.3 million below the prior year primarily due to lower outstanding debt balances, as well as lower interest rates paid on that debt. For the remainder of 2013, interest expense is expected to decline in comparison to the respective periods of 2012, due to lower discount amortization expense and as excess cash flow from operations is used to pay down outstanding debt.

Other (Income) Expense, Net

Other (income) expense, net decreased $0.9 million and $0.4 million, respectively, for the 2013 second quarter and year-to-date periods in comparison to 2012. This decrease was primarily due to $0.6 million of losses incurred on our cost and equity method investments in the second quarter of 2013. Other (income) expense, net also includes the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in foreign currencies. We generally do not expect foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations to have a material impact on our financial results.

Provision for Income Taxes

The effective tax rate (including discrete items) for the second quarter and year-to-date periods of 2013 was 35.0% and 30.2%, respectively, compared to 43.9% and 36.0%, respectively, for the same periods of 2012. This decrease was primarily attributable to the reinstatement of the research and development tax credit in the first quarter of 2013, as well as higher income in lower tax rate jurisdictions. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company recognized a $1.5 million discrete tax benefit related to the 2012 portion of the research and development tax credit. This benefit was partially offset by other discrete tax expense items recognized during the quarter. Overall the discrete tax items recognized in the 2013 periods were consistent with those recognized in the comparable 2012 periods. The benefit of the 2013 portion of the research and development tax credit will be recognized through the fiscal 2013 effective tax rate.

We currently expect our 2013 annual GAAP effective tax rate to be approximately 33%. We expect there to be continued volatility of this effective tax rate due to several factors, including changes in the mix of pre-tax income and the jurisdictions to which it relates, changes in tax laws and foreign tax holidays, business reorganizations, settlements with taxing authorities and foreign currency fluctuations.

Government Regulation

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act (collectively “Health Care Reform”) legislated broad-based changes to the U.S. health care system that could significantly impact our business operations and financial results, including higher or lower revenue, as well as higher employee medical costs and taxes. Health Care Reform imposes significant new taxes on medical device OEMs, which will result in a significant increase in the tax burden on our industry and which could have a material negative impact on our financial condition, results of operations and our cash flows. Other elements of Health Care Reform such as comparative effectiveness research, an independent payment advisory board, payment system reforms including shared savings pilots and other provisions could meaningfully change the way healthcare is developed and delivered, and may materially impact numerous aspects of our business, results of operations and financial condition. Many significant parts of Health Care Reform will be phased in over the next several years and require further guidance and clarification in the form of regulations. Management has evaluated the impact that the new medical device tax, which began in 2013, will have on our results from operations, and has estimated that it will reduce gross profit annually by approximately $0.6 million to $1.0 million.

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued a rule under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requiring companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country. Under the rule, issuers are required to conduct a reasonable due diligence process to ascertain the source of conflict minerals, defined as tantalum, tin, gold or tungsten, that are necessary to the functionality or production of their manufactured or contracted to be manufactured products. Companies are required to provide this disclosure on a new form to be filed with the SEC called Form SD. Companies are required to file Form SD on May 31, 2014 for the 2013 calendar period and annually on May 31 every year thereafter. We anticipate additional, new compliance costs to be incurred since we utilize all of the minerals specified in the rule. We are unable to quantify the cost of implementing this new regulation at this time.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

     As of  
     June 28,      December 28,  
(Dollars in thousands)    2013      2012  

Cash and cash equivalents

   $ 10,184      $ 20,284  

Working capital

   $ 189,736      $ 176,376  

Current ratio

     2.92        2.92  

The decrease in cash and cash equivalents from the end of 2012 was primarily due to an increase in working capital levels (inventory, receivables) as a result of and in anticipation of our higher sales. Our current ratio for the first six months of 2013 remained consistent with the prior year. Of the $10.2 million of cash on hand as of June 28, 2013, $8.6 million is being held at our foreign subsidiaries.

Revolving Line of Credit – We have a senior credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) consisting of a $400 million revolving line of credit, which can be increased to $600 million upon our request and approval by the lenders. The Credit Facility also contains a $15 million letter of credit subfacility and a $15 million swingline subfacility. The Credit Facility has a maturity date of June 24, 2016.

The Credit Facility is supported by a consortium of fourteen banks with no bank controlling more than 19% of the facility. As of June 28, 2013, each bank supporting the Credit Facility has an S&P credit rating of at least BBB or better, which is considered investment grade.

The Credit Facility requires us to maintain a rolling four quarter ratio of adjusted EBITDA to interest expense of at least 3.0 to 1.0. For the twelve month period ended June 28, 2013, our ratio of adjusted EBITDA to interest expense, calculated in accordance with our credit agreement, was 18.9 to 1.0, well above the required limit. The Credit Facility also requires us to maintain a total leverage ratio of not greater than 4.0 to 1.0. As of June 28, 2013, our total leverage ratio, calculated in accordance with our credit agreement, was 2.3 to 1.0, well below the required limit.

The Credit Facility contains customary events of default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default, a majority of the lenders may declare the outstanding advances and all other obligations under the Credit Facility immediately due and payable. See Note 6 “Debt” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in this report for a more detailed description of the Credit Facility.

As of June 28, 2013, we had $163 million of borrowing capacity available under the Credit Facility. This amount may vary from period to period based upon our debt and EBITDA levels, which impacts the covenant calculations discussed above. We believe that our cash flow from operations and the Credit Facility provide adequate liquidity to meet our short- and long- term funding needs.

Operating activities – Cash used in operations for the first six months of 2013 was $8.6 million, which compared to cash provided by operating activities of $23.5 million for the comparable 2012 period. This increase in cash usage was primarily due to an increase in accounts receivable and inventory during the period, due to higher actual and expected sales levels, as well as an $11.5 million estimated tax payment made in connection with the retirement of our convertible subordinated notes in the first quarter of 2013. We are not seeing any issues with the collectability of our receivables and are taking measures to reduce our receivable and inventory balances in the near term in order to improve our cash flows from operations. We remain highly focused on cash flow generation and are working to improve our performance starting with the third quarter of 2013.

Investing activitiesNet cash used in investing activities for the first six months of 2013 was $9.6 million. This included $3.2 million of proceeds received from the sale of our Swiss orthopaedic product lines which closed during the first quarter of 2013. The proceeds received were offset by $11.6 million used for the purchase of property, plant and equipment to support normal operations as well as our cost savings and consolidation initiatives, and purchases of equity method investment of $1.3 million during the period. Our current expectation is that capital spending for the full year of 2013 will be in the range of $20 million to $30 million, of which approximately half is discretionary in nature. We anticipate that cash on hand, cash flow from operations and availability under our Credit Facility will be sufficient to fund these capital expenditures. As part of our growth strategy, we have and will continue to consider targeted and opportunistic acquisitions.

Financing activities – Net cash provided by financing activities for the first six months of 2013 was $8.1 million compared to cash used of $7.7 million in the comparable 2012 period. During the first six months of 2013, we borrowed $215 million on our Credit Facility and paid down approximately $209 million. The borrowings on our Credit Facility were primarily used for the retirement of $198 million of convertible subordinated notes during the first quarter of 2013. Going forward, we expect excess cash flow from operations to be used to fund our remaining consolidation initiatives and to pay down outstanding debt.

Capital Structure – As of June 28, 2013, our capital structure consisted of $237 million of debt under our Credit Facility and 24.0 million shares of common stock outstanding. Additionally, we had $10.2 million in cash and cash equivalents. If necessary, we currently have access to $163 million under our Credit Facility and are authorized to issue 100 million shares of common stock and 100 million shares of preferred stock. We believe that if needed we can access public markets to raise additional capital. We believe that our capital structure provides adequate funding to meet our growth objectives. We continuously evaluate our capital structure, including our Credit Facility, as it relates to our anticipated long-term funding needs. Changes to our capital structure may occur as a result of this analysis, or changes in market conditions.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements within the meaning of Item 303(a)(4) of Regulation S-K.

Impact of Recently Issued Accounting Standards

In the normal course of business, we evaluate all new accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), SEC, Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”), American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“AICPA”) or other authoritative accounting body to determine the potential impact they may have on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Based upon this review, we do not expect any of the recently issued accounting pronouncements, which have not already been adopted, to have a material impact on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. See Note 16 “Impact of Recently Issued Accounting Standards” of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 1 of this report for additional information.
