Accellent Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter 2005 Financial Results


Wilmington, MA. (March 8, 2006)

– Accellent Inc. (the “Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of  Accellent Holdings Corp. (“Accellent”), announced strong results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2005, reflecting contributions from its acquisition of MedSource Technologies, Inc. (“MedSource”) on June 30, 2004  and continued organic growth.


KKR acquisition of Accellent


As previously disclosed, on November 22, 2005, affiliates of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (“KKR”) and Bain Capital (“Bain”) completed the acquisition of the Company in a transaction valued at approximately $1.27 billion. As part of the transaction, members of Accellent management partnered with KKR and Bain by retaining an equity stake in Accellent. The acquisition resulted in several large expenses for merger-related costs, debt prepayment penalties, stock compensation, accelerated interest expense and purchase accounting for inventory. The Company’s results excluding these unusual items can be derived from the tables reconciling net income (loss) to EBITDA to adjusted EBITDA(1).


Recent Acquisitions


As previously announced, the Company completed two acquisitions in the later part of 2005 focused on the growing spine and knee replacement segments of the orthopaedic industry (“2005 acquisitions”). On September 12, 2005 the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Campbell Engineering, Inc. (“Campbell”) and on October 6, 2005 the Company acquired Machining Technology Group, LLC (“MTG”). The 2005 acquisitions strengthen the Company’s ability to supply a full range of innovative design, quick-turn development, engineering services, component production, and device assembly to its orthopaedic customers. The results from the acquisitions are included in the Company’s historical results from the date of acquisition.
