Dave Mowry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tornier, commented, “We are pleased with our revenue performance during the fourth quarter as we closed and began the integration of our OrthoHelix acquisition, and as we faced continued challenges related to our U.S. distribution channel transition and a weak economy in Europe. Based on the benefits a strengthened U.S. distribution channel and new products such as the Ascend Flex convertible shoulder system will yield, we are excited about our prospects to return to double-digit, constant currency revenue growth on a pro forma basis during the second half of 2013.” The Company’s fourth quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, was $11.0 million, or 13.9% of reported revenue, compared to $8.3 million, or 12.1% of revenue, in the same quarter of the prior year, an increase of 31.5%. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year 2012 reached $32.9 million, or 11.9% of revenue, compared to $28.6 million, or 11.0% of revenue, in 2011, representing an increase of 15.1%.
Mr. Mowry continued, “Despite challenges, we were able to improve our adjusted EBITDA margin during the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012. As we enter 2013, we are committed to making the investments in our distribution channel and expanded product portfolio which are necessary to return to and sustain double-digit revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA margin improvement, and to increase shareholder value.” Fourth Quarter 2012 Revenue Highlights Extremities Revenue from the upper extremity joints and trauma category was $45.8 million, an increase of 6.4% in constant currency over the same quarter in 2011. This growth was primarily led by the Company’s shoulder arthroplasty portfolio, including the Aequalis™ Reversed Shoulder and Aequalis™ Ascend™.

Fourth quarter lower extremity revenue included approximately $8 million of revenue from the acquisition of OrthoHelix. Giving pro forma effect to the OrthoHelix acquisition to include OrthoHelix revenue in the fourth quarter 2011, fourth quarter 2012 lower extremity revenue recorded constant currency growth of 15.2%.
