York, PA - October 29, 2013 - DENTSPLY International Inc. (XRAY) today announced record sales and earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Net sales in the third quarter of 2013 grew 1.2% to $704.0 million compared to $695.7 million in the third quarter of 2012.  Excluding precious metals content, net sales in the third quarter of 2013 of $669.4 million grew 3.4% from $647.1 million in the third quarter of 2012.  Constant currency net sales growth, excluding precious metals content, in the third quarter was 2.7%, reflecting strong internal growth in the U.S. and Rest of World geographic regions and continued slightly positive internal growth in Europe.    

Net income attributable to DENTSPLY International for the third quarter of 2013 was $79.9 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to $53.4 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.  On an adjusted basis, excluding certain items, earnings grew 12% to $0.57 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2013 from $0.51 in the same period in 2012.  A reconciliation of the US GAAP measure to earnings per share calculated on a non-US GAAP basis is provided in the attached table.

DENTSPLY`s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bret Wise commented, "DENTSPLY made solid progress in the third quarter, achieving growth in each major geographic region and in each of our principal product categories.   This growth, combined with strong improvement in adjusted operating margins and lower interest costs, drove record earnings for the third quarter.   Market conditions are generally consistent with what we had anticipated earlier in the year, and thus we are maintaining our expectations for fiscal 2013 adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $2.33 to $2.38."

Non-US GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results reported in accordance with US GAAP, the Company provides adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted earnings per diluted common share.  The Company discloses adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International to allow investors to evaluate the performance of the Company`s operations exclusive of certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period and certain large non-cash charges related to purchased intangible assets.  The Company believes that this information is helpful in understanding underlying operating trends and cash flow generation.  The adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International consists of net income attributable to DENTSPLY International adjusted to exclude the impact of the following:

(1) Acquisition related costs.  These adjustments include costs related to integrating recently acquired businesses and specific costs related to the consummation of the acquisition process.  These costs are irregular in timing and as such may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company and are therefore excluded to allow investors to better understand underlying operating trends.

(2) Restructuring and other costs, including legal settlements.  These adjustments include both costs and income that are irregular in timing, amount and impact to the Company`s financial performance.  As such, these items may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company and are therefore excluded for the purpose of understanding underlying operating trends.

(3) Amortization of purchased intangible assets.  This adjustment excludes the periodic amortization expense related to purchased intangible assets.  Following a significant acquisition in 2011, the Company began recording large non-cash charges related to the values attributed to purchased intangible assets.  These charges have been excluded from adjusted net income attributed to DENTSPLY International to allow investors to evaluate and understand operating trends excluding these large non-cash charges.

(4) Income related to credit risk and fair value adjustments.  These adjustments include both the cost and income impacts of adjustments in certain assets and liabilities that are recorded through net income which are due solely to the changes in fair value and credit risk.  These items can be variable and driven more by market conditions than the Company`s operating performance.  As such, these items may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company and therefore are excluded for comparability purposes.

(5) Certain fair value adjustments related to an unconsolidated affiliated company.  This adjustment represents the fair value adjustment of the unconsolidated affiliated company`s convertible debt instrument held by the Company.  The affiliate is accounted for under the equity method of accounting.  The fair value adjustment is driven by open market pricing of the affiliate`s equity instruments, which has a high degree of variability and may not be indicative of the operating performance of the affiliate or the Company.

(6) Income tax related adjustments.  These adjustments include both income tax expenses and income tax benefits that are representative of income tax adjustments mostly related to prior periods, as well as the final settlement of income tax audits.  These adjustments are irregular in timing and amount and may significantly impact the Company`s operating performance.  As such, these items may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company and therefore are excluded for comparability purposes.

Adjusted earnings per diluted common share is calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding.  Adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted earnings per diluted common share are considered measures not calculated in accordance with US GAAP, and therefore are non-US GAAP measures.  These non-US GAAP measures may differ from other companies.  Income tax related adjustments may include the impact to adjust the interim effective income tax rate to the expected annual effective tax rate.  The non-US GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
