(RTI) (Nasdaq:RTIX), a leading provider of orthopedic and other biologic implants, reported operating results for the second quarter of 2012 as follows:

Quarterly Highlights:

“We are pleased with our second quarter results, which exceeded our expectations and were driven primarily by continued growth in our surgical specialties, direct sports medicine and BGS/GO businesses,” said Brian K. Hutchison, president and chief executive officer of RTI.

Worldwide revenues of $45.2 million for the second quarter of 2012 increased 4 percent compared to the second quarter of 2011. Domestic revenues of $39.2 million for the second quarter of 2012 grew by 3 percent compared to the second quarter of 2011, primarily based on the strength of the surgical specialties, direct sports medicine and dental businesses and were offset by unfavorable comparisons in the spine business. International revenues of $6.0 million increased 9 percent compared to the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to higher export revenue in the sports medicine and BGS/GO businesses. On a constant currency basis, international revenues increased 19 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2011.

In 2005, the company was named as a party, along with a number of other recovery and processor defendants, in lawsuits relating to the tissue recovery practices of Biomedical Tissue Services Ltd. (BTS), an unaffiliated recovery agency. During the second quarter of 2012, the company accrued a pre-tax charge of $2.35 million, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, to settle certain cases related to these proceedings.

For the second quarter of 2012, the company reported net income of $1.3 million and net income per fully diluted share of $0.02, based on 56.0 million fully diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income of $2.0 million or $0.04 per fully diluted share for the second quarter of 2011, based on 55.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding. Excluding the litigation settlement charge of $0.03 per fully diluted share, net income per fully diluted share in the second quarter of 2012 was $0.05.

As a result of first half results that exceeded expectations and better visibility into second half trends, the company is raising its full year revenues guidance for 2012. The company now expects full year revenues for 2012 to be between $177 million to $179 million, as compared to prior guidance of $176 million to $178 million. As a result of the litigation settlement charge of $0.03 per fully diluted share taken in the second quarter, full year net income per fully diluted share is now expected to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.15, based on 56.1 million shares outstanding, as compared to prior guidance of $0.16 to $0.17 per fully diluted share.

For the third quarter of 2012, the company expects revenues to be between $44 million and $45 million and net income per fully diluted share to be approximately $0.04.

RTI will host a conference call and simultaneous audio webcast to discuss the second quarter results at 8:00 a.m. ET today. The conference call can be accessed by dialing (877) 383-7419.

This communication contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry, our management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by our management. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

To supplement RTI Biologic’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, including non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per fully diluted share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are included in the reconciliation above.

The following is an explanation of the adjustment that management excluded as part of the non-GAAP measures for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 as well as the reasons for excluding the individual item:

Litigation settlement – This adjustment represents a charge and relates to a litigation settlement of certain BTS related lawsuits. Management removes the impact of the litigation settlement charge from the Company’s operating results to assist in assessing its operating performance in the current period and to supplement a comparison to the Company’s past operating performance.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per fully diluted share should not be considered in isolation, or as a replacement for GAAP measures.

The Company believes that presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per fully diluted share in addition to the related GAAP measures provide investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial decision-making which excludes the litigation settlement charge. The Company further believes that providing this information better enables RTI Biologic’s investors to understand the Company’s overall core performance and to evaluate the methodology used by management to assess and measure such performance.
