LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Orthofix International N.V. (NASDAQ: OFIX) today announced that it is delaying the release of its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2014. The Company requires additional time to evaluate certain items primarily related to entries contained in the previous restatement of its prior periods’ financial results.
“There may be changes to historical net sales and net income totals, but we expect that the factors causing these revisions, if any, will have little or no effect on the underlying performance of the business going forward.”
President and Chief Executive Officer Brad Mason stated, “While it is unfortunate we have discovered items that require additional analysis in certain previous restatement entries, considering the complexity of our prior restatement, the identification of potential technical errors is understandable. We look forward to finalizing the analysis as quickly as possible and bringing the investment community up to date on the recent performance of the business.” Mr. Mason further stated, “There may be changes to historical net sales and net income totals, but we expect that the factors causing these revisions, if any, will have little or no effect on the underlying performance of the business going forward.”
In addition, the Company announced preliminary net sales results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2014. The Company expects to report:
- Net sales of $101.3 million
- BioStim net sales of $39.8 million
- Biologics net sales of $13.9 million
- Extremity Fixation net sales of $27.3 million
- Spine Fixation net sales of $20.2 million
To provide adequate time to fully review and correct identified errors if any, and to consider and evaluate their level of materiality, the Company intends to file a Form 12b-25 (Notification of Late Filing) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The Company is proceeding with the objective of filing its second quarter Form 10-Q, as well as issuing a press release and hosting a conference call regarding second quarter financial results, no later than the end of August 2014.
