·5 min read

The company reported first-quarter 2021 adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of 97 cents, which outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 86 cents by 12.8%. However, the bottom line fell 22.4% on a year-over-year basis.

Revenue Details

Revenues declined 11.6% year over year to $290.5 million on a reported basis. However, the top line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 2.6%.

Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics and Portable Medical

Integer Holdings’ Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics & Portable Medical segment has been divested to Viant. Consequently, revenues at the segment comprise net sales from acquirer Viant under supply agreements associated with the divestiture.

Revenues amounted to $25.4 million, down 18.7% year over year and 18.7% on an organic basis. Per management, the downside was due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2021 Guidance

For second-quarter 2021, the company projects sales to be moderately better than the first quarter.

For the full-year 2021, the company projects sales to be $1.18-$1.21 billion (representing growth of 10-12%). The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is pegged at $1.19 billion.

Adjusted operating income is projected to be $175-$190 million, reflecting growth of 22-32%.

Summing Up

Integer Holdings exited the first quarter on a strong note, wherein both earnings and revenues beat the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, the company witnessed weak performance across its Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics and Portable Medical and Cardio & Vascular segments in the quarter under review. Also, contraction in both gross and operating margins remains a concern.

Nonetheless, a solid guidance looks promising. Improvement in Cardiac and Neuromodulation business is a positive. Per management, the first-quarter results highlight continued recovery from the impact of the pandemic as both earnings and revenues displayed substantial improvement on a sequential basis.
