PLAINSBORO, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2001--Led by strong growth in revenues, Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported record net income and revenues for the first quarter of 2001.
Earnings for the quarter were $0.07 per share, as compared to an adjusted net loss of $0.08 per share in the first quarter of 2000. Net income totaled $2.0 million, with total revenues increasing $7.2 million, or 49%, to $21.7 million. This compares to an adjusted net loss of $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2000 on total revenues of $14.5 million.
Revenue growth was led by a $7.0 million increase in product sales to $20.3 million, a 52% increase over the first quarter of 2000. Included in this increase was $2.8 million in sales of product lines acquired in the second quarter of 2000. Sales in the Integra NeuroSciences division increased $5.7 million to $14.5 million, and included $2.3 million in sales of acquired product lines.
Contributing to the strong organic growth of $3.4 million in the Integra NeuroSciences division were sales of the DuraGen® Dural Graft Matrix, with domestic reorder rates currently exceeding 80%, the Company's intracranial monitoring and cranial access products for the neuro intensive care unit and hydrocephalus management products.
Sales of Integra LifeSciences division products increased $1.3 million to $5.8 million primarily because of organic growth in the Company's private label products and $0.5 million in sales of acquired product lines.
"The benefits of the recent expansion in the Integra NeuroSciences' direct sales force in the United States are reflected in the strong results for the first quarter," commented Stuart M. Essig, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the recent launch of the LICOX® Brain Tissue Oxygen Monitoring System and the Ventrix® True Tech Catheter at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons meeting in April, we have further expanded the broad line of innovative life-saving products that our neurospecialists can bring to the neurosurgeon and neuro nurse. This comprehensive product offering and the strong customer relationships built by our experienced neurospecialists and clinical development team have made Integra NeuroSciences a leader in the market."
Consolidated gross margins on product sales increased to 58% in the first quarter of 2001 from an adjusted 51% in the first quarter of 2000 as a result of an improved sales mix of higher margin products. Adjusted consolidated other operating expenses (excludes cost of product sales) increased $1.6 million from the first quarter of 2000 to $10.7 million in the first quarter of 2001.
This increase was primarily the result of higher sales and marketing expenses from the expansion of the Integra NeuroSciences direct sales force, offset by lower general and administrative expenses.
On a divisional operating basis, the Company reported the following results for the first quarter of 2001:
In the Integra NeuroSciences division:
Sales of neuro intensive care unit products increased $1.0 million to $6.5 million.
Neuro operating room product sales increased $4.7 million to $8.0 million, including $2.3 million of acquired product lines.

Sales of distributed products increased $0.6 million to $2.6 million, including $0.5 million of acquired product lines.
