“We had a very successful second quarter which included strong revenue growth, market share gains, new account growth and progress on our clinical and R&D programs,” said Pat Mackin, president & CEO, in a prepared statement. “Our On-X and JOTEC products continue to gain momentum as our direct sales force is effectively conveying the attributes of our differentiated products. We expect our business momentum to continue, which has led us to raise our full year revenue guidance. Looking ahead, we have a number of initiatives that can drive substantial future growth.”
The company acquired German stent graft and surgical graft maker Jotec in December 2017 for $225 million. CryoLife paid $130 million for On-X Life Technologies in January 2016.
The company is increasing its full-year 2018 total revenues guidance to $256 million to $260 million, up from its previous estimate of $250 million to $256 million. It expects total third-quarter revenues to range from $61 million to $63 million. Except for total revenues, the company is reiterating its full-year 2018 financial guidance.
