WARSAW, Ind., Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZMH) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2014.  The Company reported fourth quarter net sales of $1.22 billion, a decrease of 1.4% reported and an increase of 2.4% constant currency over the fourth quarter of 2013.  Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.91 reported and $1.71 adjusted, an increase of 3.0% adjusted over the prior year period.  Full year net sales were $4.67 billion, an increase of 1.1% reported and 2.4% constant currency over the prior year.  Diluted earnings per share for the year were $4.19 reported and $6.06 adjusted, an increase of 5.4% adjusted over the prior year.

ZIMMER, INC. LOGO

"In the fourth quarter, Zimmer delivered solid growth across several of our product categories, with impressive contributions from our Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East and Africa sales regions," said David Dvorak, President and CEO of Zimmer.  "Our commitments to innovation and focused execution have positioned Zimmer to act on the transformational opportunity to combine with Biomet.  The combined entity will offer a more comprehensive and diversified musculoskeletal portfolio for our customers, as well as create operational synergies that will enhance value for our stockholders.  We look forward to the expected closing of this transaction later this quarter."

Net earnings for the fourth quarter were $156.6 million on a reported basis and $295.6 million on an adjusted basis, an increase of 2.4% adjusted over the prior year period.  Operating cash flow for the fourth quarter was $354.2 million

During the quarter, the Company paid $37.2 million in dividends and declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.22 per share, an increase of 10.0% over the prior year period. 

Guidance
The Company expects revenues for the first quarter of 2015 to increase between 1.5% and 2.5% on a billing day and constant currency basis over the prior year period.  The Company estimates that foreign currency translation will decrease revenues by approximately 6.0% for the first quarter of 2015.  First quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share are projected to be in a range of $1.12 to $1.14 on a reported basis and $1.58 to $1.60 on an adjusted cash basis.  This adjusted range reflects estimated charges for amortization, inventory and manufacturing related expenses, quality and operational excellence initiatives, expenses related to the pending Biomet merger and special items of $107.0 million on a pre-tax basis, or approximately $0.46 per diluted share, on an after-tax basis in the first quarter of 2015.  This guidance does not contemplate the projected accretion associated with the pending Biomet merger. Guidance for the full year 2015 will be provided after the closing of the transaction with Biomet, expected before the end of this quarter.

The Company will conduct its fourth quarter 2014 investor conference call today, January 29, 2015, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time.  The live audio webcast can be accessed via Zimmer's Investor Relations website at http://investor.zimmer.com.  It will be archived for replay following the conference call.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This communication contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of forward-looking terms such as "may," "will," "expects," "believes," "anticipates," "plans," "estimates," "projects," "assumes," "guides," "targets," "forecasts," and "seeks" or the negative of such terms or other variations on such terms or comparable terminology.  Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the benefits of the proposed merger between Zimmer and LVB Acquisition, Inc. ("LVB"), the parent company of Biomet, including future financial and operating results, the combined company's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions, the expected timing of completion of the transaction and other statements that are not historical facts.  Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of Zimmer's management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially.  These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the possibility that the anticipated synergies and other benefits from the proposed merger of Zimmer and LVB will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected time periods; the inability to obtain regulatory approvals of the merger (including the approval of antitrust authorities necessary to complete the transaction) on the terms desired or anticipated; the timing of such approvals and the risk that such approvals may result in the imposition of conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the transaction; the risk that a condition to closing the transaction may not be satisfied on a timely basis or at all; the risk that the proposed transaction fails to close for any other reason; the risks and uncertainties related to Zimmer's ability to successfully integrate the operations, products and employees of Zimmer and Biomet; the effect of the potential disruption of management's attention from ongoing business operations due to the pending merger; the effect of the announcement of the proposed merger on Zimmer's and Biomet's relationships with their respective customers, vendors and lenders and on their respective operating results and businesses generally; risks relating to the value of the Zimmer shares to be issued in the transaction; access to available financing (including financing for the acquisition or refinancing of Zimmer's or Biomet's debt) on reasonable terms, including the risk that any condition to the closing of the financing committed for the proposed merger and refinancing of Zimmer's debt is not satisfied; the outcome of any legal proceedings related to the proposed merger; the risks and uncertainties normally incidental to the orthopaedic industry, including price and product competition; the success of the companies' quality and operational excellence initiatives; changes in customer demand for Zimmer's or Biomet's products and services caused by demographic changes or other factors; the impact of healthcare reform measures, including the impact of the U.S. excise tax on medical devices; reductions in reimbursement levels by third-party payors and cost containment efforts of healthcare purchasing organizations; dependence on new product development, technological advances and innovation; shifts in the product category or regional sales mix of Zimmer's or Biomet's products and services; supply and prices of raw materials and products; control of costs and expenses; the ability to obtain and maintain adequate intellectual property protection; the ability to form and implement alliances; challenges relating to changes in and compliance with governmental laws and regulations, including regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") and foreign government regulators, such as more stringent requirements for regulatory clearance of products; the ability to remediate matters identified in any inspectional observations or warning letters issued by the FDA; changes in tax obligations arising from tax reform measures or examinations by tax authorities; product liability and intellectual property litigation losses; the ability to retain the independent agents and distributors who market Zimmer's and Biomet's products; dependence on a limited number of suppliers for key raw materials and outsourced activities; changes in general industry and market conditions, including domestic and international growth rates and general domestic and international economic conditions, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; and the impact of the ongoing economic uncertainty affecting countries in the Euro zone on the ability to collect accounts receivable in affected countries.  For a further list and description of such risks and uncertainties, see Zimmer's periodic reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").  Copies of these filings, as well as subsequent filings, are available online at www.sec.gov, www.zimmer.com or on request from Zimmer.  Zimmer disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be set forth in its periodic reports.  Readers of this communication are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, since, while management believes the assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, there can be no assurance that these forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate.  This cautionary statement is applicable to all forward-looking statements contained in this communication.

Additional Information and Where to Find It
Zimmer filed with the SEC, and the SEC declared effective on September 29, 2014, a registration statement on Form S-4 that includes a consent solicitation statement of LVB that also constitutes a prospectus of Zimmer.  INVESTORS AND SECURITYHOLDERS OF LVB ARE URGED TO READ THE CONSENT SOLICITATION/PROSPECTUS AND OTHER FILINGS MADE WITH THE SEC IN CONNECTION WITH THE MERGER CAREFULLY AND IN THEIR ENTIRETY, BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MERGER.  The registration statement and consent solicitation statement/prospectus and other documents filed by Zimmer with the SEC may be obtained free of charge at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or from Zimmer at www.zimmer.com.  You may also read and copy any reports, statements and other information filed by Zimmer, LVB and Biomet with the SEC at the SEC public reference room at 100 F Street N.E., Room 1580, Washington, D.C. 20549.  Please call the SEC at (800) 732-0330 or visit the SEC's website for further information on its public reference room.  Certain executive officers and directors of LVB have interests in the proposed transaction that may differ from the interests of stockholders generally, including benefits conferred under retention, severance and change in control arrangements and continuation of director and officer insurance and indemnification.
