Revenue from Advanced Wound Therapeutics ("AWT") grew 0.5% as reported on a GAAP basis and 2.1% on a constant currency basis, led by solid volume growth in advanced wound devices compared to the prior-year period
Revenue from Regenerative Medicine ("RM") grew 5.5% as reported on a GAAP basis and 5.8% on a constant currency basis, due primarily to higher volumes associated with breast reconstruction procedures
Net loss was $26.0 million, as reported on a GAAP basis, up from $4.5 million net loss in the prior-year period, due primarily to the impact of foreign currency exchange rate movements on the revaluation of our Term E-1 EURO loan
Adjusted EBITDA1 of $161.0 million, declined 2.9% as reported from the prior-year period and 2.2% on a constant currency basis primarily due to investments being made in our franchise structure and sales force to drive growth
The Company refinanced its Senior Term E-2 Credit Facility due November 4, 2016 with the proceeds from the offering of $400.0 million of 7.875% First Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2021. Additionally, the Company extended a portion of its Revolving Credit Facility by one year to November 4, 2017.
Announced a partnership with Mediq to exclusively distribute Acelity’s advanced wound care and regenerative medicine portfolio in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Results of the first quarter ended March 31, 2016
Joe Woody, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We begin 2016 with significant momentum, having achieved our sixth consecutive quarter of organic revenue growth driven by strong volumes in advanced wound devices, significant growth in sales of expansion products, and double digit growth in revenue from breast reconstruction procedures. Looking ahead to the remainder of the year, we will continue to invest in our people, our innovation pipeline and our business to strengthen our unique therapeutic portfolio to deliver cost-effective solutions to patients around the world.”
Acelity first quarter revenue increased 1.6% as reported on a GAAP basis to $451.4 million, compared with $444.1 million last year. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 3.0%.
AWT revenue was $339.0 million, up 0.5% as reported on a GAAP basis and 2.1% on a constant currency basis, compared to the prior-year period. Growth in AWT revenue was fueled primarily by increased volumes in advanced wound devices during the quarter and double-digit growth in expansion products, led by sales of Prevena™.
RM revenue was $109.9 million, up 5.5% as reported on a GAAP basis and 5.8% on a constant currency basis, compared to the prior-year period. The increase in RM revenue was primarily due to double digit growth in breast reconstruction procedures, partially offset by lower revenue from hernia repair procedures.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2016 was $26.0 million, as reported on a GAAP basis, compared to $4.5 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2016 decreased 2.9% to $161.0 million from $165.8 million in the prior-year period and decreased 2.2% on a constant currency basis.
The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to investments being made in our franchise structure and sales force to drive growth, partially offset by revenue growth and expense savings associated with our integration and business optimization efforts.
Total cash at March 31, 2016, was $223.6 million. During the first quarter of 2016, Acelity generated cash of $78.2 million from operations, used cash of $19.6 million in investing activities and generated cash of $73.6 million from financing activities.
On February 9, 2016, we issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7.875% First Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2021. We used a portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the First Lien Notes to repay all amounts outstanding under our Senior Term E-2 Credit Facility due November 4, 2016, together with accrued interest and related fees and expenses.
On February 9, 2016, we entered into Amendments No. 7 and No. 8 to our Senior Secured Credit Facility to, among other things, extend the maturity date of certain consenting lenders’ commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility. After giving effect to these amendments, we continue to have $200.0 million of aggregate revolving loan commitments under our Revolving Credit Facility with $28.7 million of the commitments maturing on November 4, 2016, and $171.3 million maturing on November 4, 2017.
As of March 31, 2016, total long-term debt outstanding was $4.842 billion and our Net Leverage Ratio2 was 6.5x.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
The following provides information regarding non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release:
To supplement our consolidated results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), we have disclosed non-GAAP financial measures of operating results that exclude or adjust certain items. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA to net loss is provided later in this earnings release. In addition, the Company presents certain of its financial results on a constant currency basis in addition to GAAP results. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. In this release, we calculate constant currency by calculating current-year results using prior-year foreign currency exchange rates.
Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors' evaluation of our business performance and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of our business. While management believes that these financial measures are useful in evaluating our business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly entitled measures reported by other companies. See "Reconciliation from GAAP to Non-GAAP" included within this release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.
Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of merger-related expenses, foreign currency gains or losses, business optimization expenses and other expenses specified in the reconciliation within this release.
2The Net Leverage Ratio represents Net Debt divided by Consolidated EBITDA for the last twelve months. Net Debt consists of total indebtedness including capital leases and other financing obligations, less cash and cash equivalents up to the greater of $300.0 million or 40% of Consolidated EBITDA for the last twelve months. Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in our senior secured credit agreement, represents Adjusted EBITDA plus “run rate” cost savings.
