“During the second quarter we continued to make progress on the goals we initiated in early 2019, including the movement of 14 product lines and consolidation of certain facilities,” said Fred P. Lampropoulos, Merit’s Chairman and CEO. “We are particularly pleased with the generation of free cash flow* of $32 million for the quarter and $47 million year to date.”

“We also focused on dealing with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Lampropoulos said. “Our priority was the safety of employees. Deemed an ‘essential provider,’ we continued operation in all of our facilities worldwide by implementing CDC recommendations, including temperature testing, social distancing, mask-wearing, frequent hand-washing and installing separation barriers.”

“In order to balance the reduction of incoming sales orders due to the suspension of elective procedures by many facilities we serve, we reduced headcounts, implemented targeted furloughs, and reduced salaries for a number of groups, including all executive positions,” Lampropoulos said. “We also reduced the number of research and development projects to focus on the highest priority projects in order to reach our financial and competitive objectives.”

“During the second quarter, we received the CE mark for the Merit WRAPSODYTM Endoprosthesis Stent System, and we have initiated commercialization in the European Union,” Lampropoulos continued. “We also received approval for the WRAPSODY Arterial Venous access Efficacy (WAVE) IDE trial from the FDA. This approval will allow us to proceed on several cohorts with up to 50 institutions and more than 350 patients, in anticipation of application for the FDA’s consideration of PMA approval for commercialization in the United States. We also introduced new products that address needs in the COVID-19 environment which have had an impact in the second quarter, which we believe will offer additional opportunities.”

“We added three new directors with substantial medical device experience and have formed an Operating Committee to establish future financial and performance objectives that we plan to announce during our third quarter report in October,” Lampropoulos said.

“As recently reported, we reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to fully resolve its pending investigation,” Lampropoulos said. “Based upon that agreement, we recorded a charge of approximately $18 million during the second quarter. We intend to release additional details regarding the settlement following the finalization of the settlement documents.”

“With COVID-19 cases increasing, the pace of recovery of elective procedures is still uncertain,” Lampropoulos said. “Access to customers and opportunities to pursue clinical trials for new products are still very limited. However, we are still proceeding with new product development, clinical and regulatory activities, and marketing and training programs. Assuming eventual progress in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe we are well positioned to provide new products and services as well as reliable supply of our existing products.”

“In order to maintain various departments and prepare to meet the needs of our customers, we plan to reduce certain furloughs and provide guaranteed levels of income for some sales associates, which will add some expense in the third quarter,” Lampropoulos added.

“As we enter the uncertainty of the third quarter, we maintain our guidance suspension for 2020 until we have more visibility into the future,” Lampropoulos continued. “We believe we have substantially balanced the inputs and outputs of revenues and costs, while we strive to maintain a healthy sales force. We anticipate that additional adjustments will be necessary as we navigate these uncharted waters. We remain positive about our prospects for growth and continued profitability as we move forward.”

As of June 30, 2020, Merit had cash on hand of approximately $50 million and net borrowing capacity of approximately $183 million, which was undrawn as of June 30, 2020.

2020 GUIDANCE

Due to the general uncertainty and rapidly changing global environment related to the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding economic downturn, Merit’s management has concluded that it cannot issue financial guidance for the remainder of 2020.

CONFERENCE CALL

Merit will hold its investor conference call (conference ID 6997109) today, Wednesday, July 29, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern (4:00 p.m. Central, 3:00 p.m. Mountain, and 2:00 p.m. Pacific).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Although Merit’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), Merit’s management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this release provide investors with useful information regarding the underlying business trends and performance of Merit’s ongoing operations and can be useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations. Non-GAAP financial measures used in this release include:

constant currency revenue,
core revenue,
core revenue on a constant currency basis,
non-GAAP gross margin,
non-GAAP operating margin,
non-GAAP net income,
non-GAAP earnings per share, and
free cash flow.

Merit’s management team uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate Merit’s profitability and efficiency, to compare operating results to prior periods, to evaluate changes in the operating results of its operating segments, and to measure and allocate financial resources internally. However, Merit’s management does not consider such non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to measures determined in accordance with GAAP.

Readers should consider non-GAAP measures used in this release in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial reporting measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures generally exclude some, but not all, items that may affect Merit’s net income. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which items are excluded. Merit believes it is useful to exclude such items in the calculation of non-GAAP earnings per share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP net income (in each case, as further illustrated in the reconciliation tables below) because such amounts in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Merit’s business operations and can vary significantly between periods as a result of factors such as acquisition transactions, non-cash expenses related to amortization or write-off of previously acquired tangible and intangible assets, severance expenses, expenses resulting from non-ordinary course litigation or administrative proceedings and resulting settlements, governmental proceedings or changes in tax or industry regulations, and debt issuance costs. Merit may incur similar types of expenses in the future, and the non-GAAP financial information included in this release should not be viewed as a statement or indication that these types of expenses will not recur. Additionally, the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of other companies. Merit urges investors and potential investors to review the reconciliations of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Merit’s business or results of operations.

Constant Currency Revenue

Merit’s revenue on a constant currency basis is prepared by translating the current-period reported revenue of subsidiaries whose functional currency is a currency other than the U.S. dollar at the applicable foreign exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior-year period. The constant currency revenue adjustments of $2.7 million and $5.5 million to reported revenue and to core revenue for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020, respectively, were calculated using the applicable average foreign exchange rates for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019, respectively.

Core Revenue and Core Revenue on a Constant Currency Basis

Merit’s core revenue is defined (a) with respect to prior fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue, and (b) with respect to current fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue, less revenue from certain acquisitions and strategic transactions. For the three and six-month period ended June 30, 2020, Merit’s core revenue excludes revenues attributable to the acquisition of (1) Brightwater Medical, Inc. in June 2019 (excluded through May 2020 only), and (2) Fibrovein Holdings Limited in August 2019. Core revenue on a constant currency basis is defined as core revenue (as described in the first sentence of this paragraph) adjusted

6


to eliminate the foreign exchange impact related to those core revenues for the relevant period, using the applicable average foreign exchange rates in effect for the comparable prior-year periods presented.

Non-GAAP Gross Margin

Non-GAAP gross margin is calculated by reducing GAAP cost of sales by amounts recorded for amortization of intangible assets, certain inventory write-offs and inventory mark-up related to acquisitions.

Non-GAAP Operating Margin

Non-GAAP operating margin is calculated by adjusting GAAP operating income (loss) for certain items which are deemed by Merit’s management to be outside of core operations and vary in amount and frequency among periods, such as expenses related to new acquisitions, non-cash expenses related to amortization or write-off of previously acquired tangible and intangible assets, severance expenses, performance-based stock compensation expenses, expenses resulting from non-ordinary course litigation or administrative proceedings and resulting settlements, governmental proceedings or changes in industry regulations, as well as other items set forth in the tables below.

Non-GAAP Net Income

Non-GAAP net income is calculated by adjusting GAAP net income (loss) for the items set forth in the definition of non-GAAP operating margin above, as well as for expenses related to debt issuance costs and changes in tax regulations, as well as other items set forth in the tables below.

Non-GAAP EPS

Non-GAAP EPS is defined as non-GAAP net income divided by the diluted shares outstanding for the corresponding period.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures as defined by GAAP in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

Other Non-GAAP Financial Measure Reconciliation

The following tables set forth supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share to Merit’s net income and earnings per share prepared in accordance with GAAP, in each case, for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. The non-GAAP income adjustments referenced in the following tables do not reflect non-performance-based stock compensation expense of approximately $2.4 million and $2.5 million for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and approximately $4.7 million and $4.3 million for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

(a)The constant currency revenue adjustments of $2.7 million and $5.5 million to reported revenue and to core revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, were calculated using the applicable average foreign exchange rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
(b)Merit’s core revenue is defined (a) with respect to prior fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue, and (b) with respect to current fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue, less revenue from certain acquisitions and strategic transactions. For the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020, Merit’s core revenue excludes revenues attributable to the acquisition of (1) Brightwater Medical, Inc. in June 2019 (excluded through May 2020 only), and (2) Fibrovein Holdings Limited in August 2019. Core revenue on a constant currency basis is defined as core revenue (as described in the first sentence of this paragraph) adjusted to eliminate the foreign exchange impact related to those core revenues for the relevant period, using the applicable average foreign exchange rates in effect for the comparable prior-year periods presented.

Such risks and uncertainties include inherent risks and uncertainties relating to Merit’s internal models or the projections in this release; risks and uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and Merit’s response thereto; risks relating to Merit’s potential inability to successfully manage growth through acquisitions generally, including the inability to effectively integrate acquired operations or products or commercialize technology developed internally or acquired through completed, proposed or future transactions; negative changes in economic and industry conditions in the United States or other countries; expenditures relating to research, development, testing and regulatory approval or clearance of Merit’s products and risks that such products may not be developed successfully or approved for commercial use; governmental scrutiny and regulation of the medical device industry, including governmental inquiries, investigations and proceedings involving Merit; litigation and other judicial proceedings affecting Merit; restrictions on Merit’s liquidity or business operations resulting from its debt agreements; infringement of Merit’s technology or the assertion that Merit’s technology infringes the rights of other parties; actions of activist shareholders, including a potential proxy contest; product recalls and product liability claims; changes in customer purchasing patterns or the mix of products Merit sells; risks and uncertainties associated with Merit’s information technology systems, including the potential for breaches of security and evolving regulations regarding privacy and data protection; increases in the prices of commodity components; the potential of fines, penalties or other adverse consequences if Merit’s employees or agents violate the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or other laws or regulations; laws and regulations targeting fraud and abuse in the healthcare industry; potential for significant adverse changes in governing regulations, including reforms to the procedures for approval or clearance of Merit’s products by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration or comparable regulatory authorities in other jurisdictions; changes in tax laws and regulations in the United States or other countries; termination or interruption of relationships with Merit’s suppliers, or failure of such suppliers to perform; fluctuations in exchange rates; uncertainties relating to the LIBOR calculation method and the expected discontinuation of LIBOR; concentration of a substantial portion of Merit’s revenues among a few products and procedures; development of new products and technology that could render Merit’s existing or future products obsolete; market acceptance of new products; volatility in the market price of Merit’s common stock; modification or limitation of governmental or private insurance reimbursement policies; changes in healthcare policies or markets related to healthcare reform initiatives; failure to comply with applicable environmental laws; changes in key personnel; work stoppage or transportation risks; introduction of products in a timely fashion; price and product competition; availability of labor and materials; fluctuations in and obsolescence of inventory; and other factors referenced in the 2019 Annual Report and other materials filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
