Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 29, 2021, Teleflex Incorporated (the “Company”) issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing its financial results for the quarter ended March 28, 2021. A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
In addition to the financial information included in the Press Release that has been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the Press Release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These measures include constant currency revenue growth and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Constant currency revenue growth is based upon net revenues, adjusted to eliminate the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. The impact of changes in foreign currency may vary significantly from period to period, and generally are outside of the control of our management. We believe that this measure facilitates a comparison of our operating performance exclusive of fluctuations that do not reflect our underlying performance or business trends. Adjusted diluted earnings per share is based upon diluted earnings per share available to common stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, adjusted to exclude, depending on the period presented, the impact (net of tax) of (i) restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items; (ii) acquisition, integration and divestiture related items; (iii) other items identified in note (C) to each of the reconciliation tables set forth in the Press Release; (iv) certain expenditures associated with the registration of medical devices under the European Union Medical Device Regulation; (v) intangible amortization expense; and (vi) tax adjustments. Management does not believe that any of the excluded items are indicative of our underlying core performance or business trends.
Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess the Company's financial performance, make operating decisions, allocate financial resources, provide guidance on possible future results, and assist in its evaluation of period-to-period and peer comparisons. The non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors because they provide insight into management’s assessment of our business, and provide supplemental information pertinent to a comparison of period-to-period results of our ongoing operations. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Moreover, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
The information furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of this Current Report, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, shall not be considered “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of such section, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into future filings by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, unless the Company expressly sets forth in such future filing that such information is to be considered "filed" or incorporated by reference therein.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
In connection with the conference call to be held by the Company on April 29, 2021 to discuss its financial results for the quarter ended March 28, 2021, the Company plans to reference a slide presentation, which will be made available in advance of the call through the Company’s website. A copy of the slide presentation is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report.
The information furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of this Current Report, including Exhibit 99.2, shall not be considered “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of such section, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into future filings by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, unless the Company expressly sets forth in such future filing that such information is to be considered “filed” or incorporated by reference therein.




Item 8.01 Other Events.
Redemption of 4.875% Senior Notes due 2026

On April 29, 2021, the Company issued a notice of redemption to holders of its outstanding $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes”). Pursuant to the notice of redemption, the 2026 Notes will be redeemed on June 1, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”) at a redemption price equal to 102.438% of the principal amount of the 2026 Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the Redemption Date (the “Redemption Price”). The notice of redemption provides that the redemption is subject to the condition that the Company is able to borrow funds under its revolving credit agreement on the Redemption Date in an amount sufficient to pay the aggregate Redemption Price on the Redemption Date.
