WARSAW, Ind., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZMH) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  The Company reported first quarter net sales of $1,141 million, an increase of 2.2% reported and 2.7% constant currency over the first quarter of 2011.  Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $1.17 reported and $1.30 adjusted, an increase of 9.2% adjusted over the prior year period.

"Zimmer delivered year-over-year sales growth in all geographic segments and in most product categories in the quarter," said David Dvorak, Zimmer President and CEO.  "Looking forward, our new product introductions and progress in our transformation programs will enable the Company to generate increased value to stockholders."   

Net earnings for the first quarter were $209.6 million on a reported basis and $231.3 million on an adjusted basis, an increase of 0.2% adjusted over the prior year period.  Operating cash flow for the first quarter was $207.4 million

During the quarter, the Company utilized $141.6 million of cash to acquire 2.3 million shares.  At the end of the first quarter, $1.36 billion of share repurchase authorization remained available under the current program, which expires on December 31, 2014.

Guidance
The Company reaffirmed its constant currency revenue and adjusted EPS guidance for full year 2012.  In addition, the Company updated its full-year reported revenue and EPS guidance for 2012.  Full-year revenues for 2012 are expected to increase between 2% and 4% on a constant currency basis from 2011.  The Company now estimates that foreign currency translation will decrease revenues by approximately 1.5% to 2.0% for the full year 2012, resulting in reported revenue growth between 0% and 2.5%.  Previously, the Company had estimated foreign currency translation would decrease revenues by approximately 1%.  Full-year 2012 diluted earnings per share are projected to be in a range of $4.70 to $4.90 on a reported basis and $5.20 to $5.40 on an adjusted basis.  Prior guidance for full-year 2012 reported diluted earnings per share was $4.75 to $4.95.
