CONMED Corp. Reports Operating Results (10-K)

February 28, 2012 | About:

CONMED Corp. (NASDAQ:CNMD) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-31.

Conmed Corp has a market cap of $836.7 million; its shares were traded at around $30.08 with a P/E ratio of 19.9 and P/S ratio of 1.2. Conmed Corp had an annual average earning growth of 1% over the past 5 years.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Sales for 2011 were $725.1 million, an increase of $11.4 million (1.6%) compared to sales of $713.7 million in 2010 with the increases occurring in all product lines except Patient Care. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales increased 0.7%. Sales of capital equipment decreased $5.3 million (-3.2%) to $159.9 million in 2011 from $165.2 million in 2010; sales of single-use and reposable products increased $16.7 million (3.0%) to $565.2 million in 2011 from $548.5 million in 2010. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales of capital equipment decreased 3.9% while single-use and reposable products increased 2.1%. We believe the overall decline in capital sales is driven by capital purchasing constraints in hospitals due to the depressed economic conditions.

A provision for income taxes was recorded at an effective rate of -132.6% in 2011 and 33.5% in 2010 as compared to the Federal statutory rate of 35.0%. Actual income tax expense recorded in 2011 was $2.3 million lower than income tax expense as computed at the Federal statutory rate. Actual income tax expense recorded in 2010 was $0.7 million lower than income tax expense as computed at the Federal statutory rate. Income tax expense was primarily lower in 2011 as a result of Federal foreign tax credit benefit recorded in 2011 associated with the repatriation of foreign earnings to the United States, which decreased tax expense by $1.3 million. A reconciliation of the United States statutory income tax rate to our effective tax rate is included in Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Sales for 2010 were $713.7 million, an increase of $19.0 million (2.7%) compared to sales of $694.7 million in 2009 with the increases occurring in Arthroscopy, Electrosurgery and Endosurgery. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales increased 1.4%. Sales of capital equipment decreased $0.7 million (-0.4%) from $165.9 million in 2009 to $165.2 million in 2010; sales of single-use and reposable products increased $19.7 million (3.7%) from $528.8 million in 2009 to $548.5 million in 2010. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales of capital equipment decreased 1.7% while single-use and reposable products increased 2.3%.

Powered surgical instrument sales increased $5.6 million (3.9%) in 2011 to $147.9 million from $142.3 million in 2010 mainly driven by increases in our large bone handpiece products. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program sales increased 2.6%. Sales of capital equipment increased $5.0 million (7.8%) to $69.4 million in 2011 from $64.4 million in 2010; sales of single-use products increased $0.6 million (0.8%) in 2011 to $78.5 million compared to $77.9 million in 2010. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales of capital equipment increased 6.9% while single-use products decreased 0.9%. Powered surgical instrument sales decreased $1.7 million (-1.2%) in 2010 to $142.3 million from $144.0 million in 2009 mainly due to decreases in sales of our small bone handpieces. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program sales decreased 3.1%. Sales of capital equipment decreased $3.3 million (-4.9%) to $64.4 million in 2010 from $67.7 million in 2009; sales of single-use products increased $1.6 million (2.1%) in 2010 to $77.9 million compared to $76.3 million in 2009. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program, sales of capital equipment decreased 6.4% while single-use products decreased 0.3%.

Patient Care sales decreased $2.6 million (-3.8%) in 2011 to $65.7 million compared to $68.3 million in 2010 principally due to decreased sales of ECG electrodes and IV devices. In local currency, excluding the effects of the hedging program sales decreased 4.1%. Patient Care sales decreased $2.7 million (-3.8%) in 2010 to $68.3 million compared to $71.0 million in 2009 principally due to decreased sales of ECG electrodes and IV devices.
