WARSAW, Ind., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Net Sales of $1,139 million represent a decrease of 0.2% reported from the prior year period (an increase of 1.0% constant currency)
  • Diluted EPS for the first quarter were $1.28 reported, an increase of 9.4% over the prior year period, and $1.41 adjusted, an increase of 8.5% over the prior year period
  • Company reaffirms constant currency revenue and EPS guidance and updates reported revenue guidance for 2013

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZMH; SIX: ZMH) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  The Company reported first quarter net sales of $1,139 million, a decrease of 0.2% reported and an increase of 1.0% constant currency over the first quarter of 2012.  The first quarter of 2013 included two fewer billing days in a number of key markets, including the United States, compared with the prior year period.  Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $1.28 reported and $1.41 adjusted, an increase of 8.5% adjusted over the prior year period.

"We achieved our financial commitments in the first quarter, including leveraged earnings per share growth," said David Dvorak, Zimmer President and CEO.  "During the quarter, we continued to deliver value to stockholders through the introduction of significant new product offerings across the portfolio, as well as through an increased dividend and share repurchases.  The foundational work completed in the quarter positions Zimmer for accelerated top-line growth for the balance of 2013."   

Net earnings for the first quarter were $218.6 million on a reported basis and $240.8 million on an adjusted basis, an increase of 4.1% adjusted over the prior year period.  Operating cash flow for the first quarter was $180.5 million

During the quarter, the Company utilized $392.0 million of cash to acquire 5.36 million shares.  At the end of the first quarter, $622.7 million of share repurchase authorization remained available under the current program, which expires on December 31, 2014.

Guidance The Company reaffirmed its constant currency revenue guidance and its reported and adjusted EPS guidance for the full year 2013.  In addition, the Company updated its full-year reported revenue guidance for 2013.  The Company continues to expect full-year revenues for 2013 to increase between 2.5% and 4.5% on a constant currency basis from 2012.  The Company now estimates that foreign currency translation will decrease revenues by approximately 1.5% for the full year 2013, resulting in reported revenue growth between 1.0% and 3.0%.  Previously, the Company had estimated foreign currency translation would decrease revenues by approximately 0.5%.  The Company still projects full-year 2013 diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $5.05 to $5.25 on a reported basis and $5.65 to $5.85 on an adjusted basis.
