“Despite a slow start to fiscal year 2021 as a result of continued challenges in the operating environment due to COVID-19, we saw measured improvements as we moved through the first quarter, and we delivered better-than-expected revenue results due in large part to a record month of March,” said Fred P. Lampropoulos, Merit’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are also proud of the strong financial results we delivered in the first quarter; we leveraged low single-digit revenue growth to drive impressive growth in our non-GAAP operating income* and non-GAAP net income*, which increased 26% and 41%, respectively, compared to the prior year period. Importantly, we continue to make progress towards our goal of enhancing Merit’s long-term growth and profitability profile, as evidenced by the $29 million of free cash flow* we generated in the first quarter.”

Mr. Lampropoulos continued: “We are pleased with the solid start to the year and remain cautiously optimistic in our outlook for measured improvement in the operating environment as we move through the remainder of 2021. We remain confident in our 2021 guidance for total revenue growth, on a constant currency basis*, in the low-to-mid single digits year-over-year and, importantly, excluding the impact of divestitures and product sales that uniquely benefitted from pandemic-related demand trends in 2020, our constant currency revenue guidance* continues to reflect growth in the mid-to-high single digits year-over-year in 2021. We also continue to expect profitability improvement and notable free cash flow generation driven by strong execution and contributions from our multi-year strategic initiatives driven by our Foundations for Growth Program.”

As of March 31, 2021, Merit had cash on hand of approximately $58.5 million, long term debt obligations of approximately $321 million, and available borrowing capacity of $418 million, compared to cash on hand of approximately $56.9 million, long term debt obligations of $352 million, and available borrowing capacity of $389 million as of December 31, 2020.

Updated Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Guidance

Based upon information currently available to Merit’s management, Merit is updating net revenue expectations for the year ending December 31, 2021, absent material acquisitions, non-recurring transactions or other factors beyond Merit’s control, the Company now expects:

Net revenue in the range of $994 million to $1,014 million, representing an increase of approximately 3.1% to 5.2% year over year, as compared to net revenue of $963.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The updated net revenue range assumes a benefit from the changes in foreign currency exchange rates in the range of

2


approximately $8.0 million to $8.5 million, compared to the prior guidance range which assumed a benefit in the range of approximately $4.0 million to $4.5 million.

The updated fiscal year 2021 net revenue guidance range assumes:
oNet revenue from the cardiovascular segment of between $963 million and $982 million, representing an increase of approximately 3.1% to 5.2% year-over-year as compared to net revenue of $934.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The prior guidance range assumed growth of approximately 2.7% to 4.8% year-over-year.
oNet revenue from the endoscopy segment of between $30.8 million and $31.9 million, representing an increase of approximately 4% to 7% year-over-year as compared to net revenue of $29.7 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. This net revenue range is unchanged from prior guidance.

GAAP net income in the range of $47.3 million to $55.9 million, or $0.83 to $0.98 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $(9.8) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The GAAP net income range is unchanged from prior guidance.

Non-GAAP net income* in the range of $104.8 million to $112.7 million, or $1.84 to $1.98 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income* of $93.3 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020. The non-GAAP net income range is unchanged from prior guidance.

Merit’s financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2021 is subject to risks and uncertainties identified in this release and Merit’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

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;
constant currency revenue, organic;
core revenue;
non-GAAP gross margin;
non-GAAP operating income and 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 and financial results to prior periods, to evaluate changes in the 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 income and 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 or other extraordinary transactions, non-cash expenses related to amortization or write-off of previously acquired tangible and intangible assets, certain severance expenses, expenses resulting from non-ordinary course litigation or administrative proceedings and resulting settlements, corporate transformation expenses, governmental proceedings or changes in tax or industry regulations, gains or losses on disposal of certain assets, 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 readers 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 constant currency revenue is prepared by converting 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, and adjusting for the effects of hedging transactions on reported revenue, which are recorded in the U.S. The constant currency revenue adjustment of ($3.8) million to reported revenue for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 was calculated using the applicable average foreign exchange rates for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020.

Constant Currency Revenue, Organic

Merit’s constant currency revenue, organic, is defined, with respect to prior fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue. With respect to current fiscal year periods, constant currency revenue, organic, is defined as constant currency revenue (as defined above),

6


less revenue from certain acquisitions. For the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, Merit’s constant currency revenue, organic, excludes revenues attributable to the acquisition of KA Medical, LLC in November 2020.

Core Revenue

Merit’s core revenue is defined, with respect to prior fiscal year periods, as GAAP revenue less revenue from certain dispositions. For the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, Merit’s core revenue excludes revenues attributable to its distribution agreement with NinePoint Medical, Inc., which was suspended during the first quarter of 2020, revenues attributable to the manufacture of Merit’s Hypotube product which were divested in August 2020, and revenues attributable to the ITL Healthcare Pty Ltd (“ITL”) procedure pack business in Australia which was closed in December 2020.

With respect to current fiscal year periods, core revenue is defined as constant currency revenue, organic (as defined above), less $0.9 million of revenue attributable to sales of the Cultura nasopharyngeal swab and test kit (which benefited from high demand in 2020 resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic but which is not expected to be a significant revenue contribution in the future), as well as $0.2 million of revenue attributable to the final sales of products from the closed ITL procedure pack business (which were carried over from the fourth quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021 and are not expected to impact sales in future periods).

Non-GAAP Gross Margin

Non-GAAP gross margin is calculated by reducing GAAP cost of sales by amounts recorded for amortization of intangible assets and certain inventory write-offs, divided by reported net sales.

Non-GAAP Operating Income and Margin

Non-GAAP operating income is calculated by adjusting GAAP operating income 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, certain severance expenses, performance-based stock compensation expenses, corporate transformation 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 operating margin is calculated by dividing non-GAAP operating income by reported net sales.

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, gains or losses on disposal of certain assets, changes in tax regulations, and 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 calculated in accordance with GAAP, less capital expenditures calculated in accordance with GAAP, as set forth in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure Reconciliations

The following tables set forth supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to Merit’s corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, in each case, for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. The non-GAAP income adjustments referenced in the following tables do not reflect non-performance-based stock compensation expense of approximately $2.6 million and $2.3 million for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
