Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide adjusted revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share. Adjusted revenues consist of growth in total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates on the current period's revenues. The various measures of adjusted EBITDA consist of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) other income (expense), net, (iii) interest income and expense, (iv) income taxes, (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income and, as appropriate (vi) stock-based compensation expense. The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) acquisition-related charges; (ii) certain employee termination and related charges; (iii) intangible asset impairment charges; (iv) charges associated with discontinued or withdrawn product lines; (v) systems implementation charges; (vi) facility consolidation, manufacturing and distribution transfer charges; (vii) charges related to restructuring European entities; (viii) expenses related to our Chief Operating Officer joining the Company; (ix) non-cash amortization of imputed interest for convertible debt; (x) intangible asset amortization expense; and (xi) income tax expense related to above adjustments, quarterly adjustments to income tax expense related to the cumulative impact of changes in estimated tax rates and certain infrequently occurring items that affected the reported tax rate. The adjusted earnings per diluted share measure is calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Reconciliations of GAAP revenues to adjusted revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 and GAAP net income to adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation and adjusted net income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share for the quarters ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 appear in the financial tables in this release.

Integra believes that the presentation of adjusted revenues and the various adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per diluted share measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. For further information regarding why Integra believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K regarding this earnings press release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This Current Report on Form 8-K is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or on our website at .
