Revenues were $42.8 million for the third quarter of 2009, representing an 11 percent increase compared to revenues of $38.5 million for the third quarter of 2008. Revenues were $122.6 million for the first nine months of 2009, representing a 12 percent increase compared to revenues of $109.3 million for the first nine months of 2008. The increase in year-over-year revenues for the first nine months reflects the inclusion of Tutogen Medical for the full nine months of 2009 compared to the period of Feb. 28 to Sept. 30, 2008 in the prior year. Tutogen revenues for the period Jan. 1, 2008 to Feb. 27, 2008 were $8.5 million, including international revenues of $3.0 million.

For the third quarter of 2009, the company reported net income of $2.3 million and net income per fully diluted share of $0.04 based on 55 million fully diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income of $388,000 and net income per fully diluted share of $0.01 for the third quarter of 2008, based on 55.7 million fully diluted shares outstanding. For the first nine months of 2009, the company reported net income of $4.4 million and net income per fully diluted share of $0.08 based on 54.7 million fully diluted shares outstanding, compared to net income of $2.5 million and net income per fully diluted share of $0.05 based on 50.4 million fully diluted shares outstanding for the same period last year.

“Our third quarter results were in line with our expectations,” said Brian K. Hutchison, RTI chairman and chief executive officer. “As we enter the last quarter of the year, we are mindful of the continued weakness in the global economy and its impact on procedure volumes and the orthopedic markets in general. Accordingly, we are working diligently to ensure we meet our goals for our distributors and our shareholders.”

Revenue Analysis

Domestic revenues were $37.4 million for the third quarter and $105.4 million for the first nine months of 2009, both representing increases of 12 percent over prior year results for each period. The increase in revenues for the first nine months reflects the inclusion of Tutogen revenues for nine months in 2009 versus the period of Feb. 28 to Sept. 30, 2008 in the prior year. For the third quarter and first nine months of 2009, the strongest domestic performance was in surgical specialties, with sequential and year-over-year growth rates that exceeded market growth rates as we continue to increase sourcing of membrane tissue to support these markets. Growth in surgical specialties offset a decline in dental revenues, which have been significantly impacted by the global economic slowdown. The sports medicine business continues to grow; however, the third quarter revenues were negatively impacted by both a seasonal slowdown in procedures and deferral of procedures due to global economic conditions.

International revenues, which include exports and distribution from our German and French operations, were $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2009 and $17.2 million for the first nine months of 2009, representing increases of 8 percent and 13 percent respectively compared to the prior year period. During the third quarter and first nine months of 2009, currency exchange fluctuations resulted in a decrease in revenues of $229,000 and $1.5 million respectively compared to prior year periods. In addition, first nine month revenues reflect the inclusion of Tutogen revenues for the full nine months in 2009 versus the period of Feb. 28 to Sept. 30, 2008 in the prior year.

2009 Outlook

The company’s 2009 financial guidance includes revenues estimated to be $166 to $168 million, with fully diluted earnings per share of $0.11 to $0.13. There are no changes to this guidance at this time.
