Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation IART recently announced the preliminary revenue results for second-quarter 2020. The company is scheduled to release detailed financial results for the period on Aug 10.
Integra projects second-quarter 2020 revenues in the band of $254-$256 million. This represents an organic revenue decline of 32% and 34% on a reported basis. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is currently pinned at $255 million.
Management noted that there was a sequential improvement in monthly sales performance throughout the quarter due to the reopening of non-emergent surgical procedures and the easing of shelter-in-place restrictions. However, the average daily sales for the company in June were down 15% year over year
Integra LifeSciences, although upbeat about its improvement in monthly sales trends during the second quarter, is wary about the uncertainties related to the pandemic’s impacts. Hence, it is currently unable to estimate the revenue impact due to COVID-19 beyond the first half of 2020.
The company will, however, provide an update on Aug 10.
As of now, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2020 adjusted earnings per share is pegged at $1.77, while the same for revenues is $1.31 billion.
Shares of the company have lost 11.5% in the past year against the industry’s 10.4% growth and the S&P 500's 5.8% rise.
