DENTSPLY International Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

  • Net sales were a record for the first quarter and increased 2.2% and 1.1% excluding precious metals 

  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.49 on a GAAP reported basis and $0.52 on an adjusted basis 

York, PA - May 9, 2013 - DENTSPLY International Inc. (NASDAQ: XRAY) today announced sales and earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Net sales in the first quarter of 2013 increased 2.2% to $732.1 million from $716.4 million in the first quarter of 2012.  Net sales, excluding precious metals content, in the first quarter of 2013 of $672.6 million increased 1.1% from $665.6 million in the first quarter of 2012.  Constant currency net sales growth, excluding precious metals content, in the first quarter was 1.7%, driven by modest internal growth in all regions against a relatively strong prior year comparison.    

Net income attributable to DENTSPLY International for the first quarter of 2013 was $71.7 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $53.3 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012.  On an adjusted basis, excluding certain items, earnings were $0.52 per diluted share for both the first quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measure to earnings per share calculated on a GAAP basis is provided in the attached table.

Bret Wise, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated "DENTSPLY reported record revenue and flat adjusted earnings per share for the first quarter reflecting the slow growth of the global dental market at present and important investments made by the Company during the quarter.  Looking forward, we believe that we have opportunities to accelerate growth in both sales and earnings as the year progresses.  Given the current market environment and currency exchange rates, we are revising our expectations for adjusted earnings per share for 2013 to a range of $2.33 to $2.43."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results reported in accordance with US GAAP, the Company provides adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted earnings per diluted common share.  These adjusted amounts consist of US GAAP amounts excluding, net of tax (1) acquisition related costs, (2) restructuring and other costs, including legal settlements, (3) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (4) Orthodontic business continuity costs, (5) income related to credit risk and fair value adjustments, (6) certain fair value adjustments at an unconsolidated affiliated company, and (7) income tax related adjustments.  Adjusted earnings per diluted common share is calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding.  Adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted earnings per diluted common share are considered measures not calculated in accordance with US GAAP, and therefore are non-US GAAP measures.  These non-US GAAP measures may differ from other companies.  Income tax related adjustments may include the impact to adjust the interim effective income tax rate to the expected annual effective tax rate.

The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted earnings per diluted common share provides important supplemental information to management and investors seeking to understand the Company's financial condition and results of operations.  The non-US GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
