TELEFLEX INCORPORATED
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)


Note 1 — Basis of presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Teleflex Incorporated and its subsidiaries (“we,” “us,” “our" and “Teleflex”) are prepared on the same basis as its annual consolidated financial statements.
In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for the fair statement of the financial statements for interim periods in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and Rule 10-01 of Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Regulation S-X, which sets forth the instructions for the form and content of presentation of financial statements included in Form 10-Q. The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates particularly as it relates to estimates reliant on forecasts and other assumptions impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which are described in more detail in the 'Risks and uncertainties' section below. The results of operations for the periods reported are not necessarily indicative of those that may be expected for a full year.
In accordance with applicable accounting standards and as permitted by Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnote disclosures that are required to be included in our annual consolidated financial statements. Therefore, our quarterly condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. For the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019, we reclassified intangible asset amortization expense of $20.9 million and $20.8 million, respectively, from selling, general and administrative expenses to cost of goods sold.
Risks and Uncertainties
We are subject to risks and uncertainties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business is highly uncertain and difficult to predict due to the rapidly evolving environment and continued uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other things, the response to the COVID-19 pandemic has had the effect of reducing the number of elective procedures being carried out by our customers, thereby reducing demand for products used in elective procedures, while creating an increase in demand for products used in the treatment of patients with COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted economic activity and markets around the world. If the pandemic continues and conditions worsen, it could negatively impact our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity in numerous ways, including, but not limited to, lower revenues in our product categories dependent on elective procedures; further disruption in the manufacture of our products including increased manufacturing and distribution costs; extended delays in or defaults on payments of outstanding receivables; and increased volatility and pricing in capital markets. Further, the COVID-19 pandemic may cause disruption to our suppliers or their suppliers and/or the distribution of our products, whether through our direct sales force or our distributors.
The severity of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the duration and severity of the pandemic and the extent and severity of the impact on our employees, contractors, suppliers, customers and other business partners, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. As of the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements, the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may materially impact our financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations is uncertain.
Note 2 — Recently issued accounting standards
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued new guidance that changes the methodology to be used to measure credit losses for certain financial instruments and financial assets, including trade receivables. Under current guidance, an entity reflects credit losses on financial assets measured on an amortized cost basis only when it is probable that losses have been incurred, generally considering only past events and current conditions in determining the incurred loss. The new guidance requires the recognition of an allowance

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)
(Unaudited)

that reflects the current estimate of credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of the financial asset, based not only on historical experience and current conditions, but also on reasonable forecasts. The main objective of the new guidance is to provide financial statement users with more useful information in making decisions about the expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit held by a reporting entity at each reporting date. We adopted the new standard on January 1, 2020 using a modified retrospective transition approach by recognizing a cumulative-effect adjustment of $0.8 million to reduce our opening balance of retained earnings as of the adoption date. Prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to reflect our historical accounting.
In December 2019, the FASB issued new guidance that simplifies various aspects of accounting for income taxes including those related to the step-up in the tax basis of goodwill, intraperiod tax allocations and the interim period effects of changes in tax laws or rates. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The majority of the modifications under the new guidance will be applied on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings on January 1, 2021. We are currently evaluating the impact the guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In March 2020, the SEC adopted final rules that amend the financial disclosure requirements for subsidiary issuers and guarantors of registered debt securities in Rule 3-10 of Regulation S-X. The SEC amended its financial disclosure requirements for companies that conduct registered debt offerings involving subsidiaries as either issuers or guarantors and affiliates whose securities are pledged as collateral. The SEC narrowed the circumstances that require separate financial statements of subsidiary issuers and guarantors and streamlined the alternative disclosures required in lieu of those statements. The SEC replaced the requirement for separate financial statements of affiliates whose securities are pledged as collateral for registered securities with requirements similar to those adopted for subsidiary issuers and guarantors. The new disclosures may be located, in all cases, outside of the financial statements. The rule is effective January 4, 2021, but earlier compliance is permitted. We adopted the new rule during the first quarter of 2020. The disclosures are now located within the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of Item 2 - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
From time to time, new accounting guidance is issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies that is adopted by us as of the effective date or, in some cases where early adoption is permitted, in advance of the effective date. We have assessed the recently issued guidance that is not yet effective and, unless otherwise indicated above, believes the new guidance will not have a material impact on the consolidated results of operations, cash flows or financial position.

Note 3 - Net revenues
We primarily generate revenue from the sale of medical devices including single use disposable devices and, to a lesser extent, reusable devices, instruments and capital equipment. Revenue is recognized when obligations under the terms of a contract with our customer are satisfied; this occurs upon the transfer of control of the products. Generally, transfer of control to the customer occurs at the point in time when our products are shipped from the manufacturing or distribution facility. For our Original Equipment and Development Services ("OEM") segment, most revenue is recognized over time because the OEM segment generates revenue from the sale of custom products that have no alternative use and we have an enforceable right to payment to the extent that performance has been completed. We market and sell products through our direct sales force and distributors to customers within the following end markets: (1) hospitals and healthcare providers; (2) other medical device manufacturers; and (3) home care providers such as pharmacies, which comprised 86%, 12% and 2% of consolidated net revenues, respectively, for the three months ended March 29, 2020. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring goods. With respect to the custom products sold in the OEM segment, revenue is measured using the units produced output method. Payment is generally due 30 days from the date of invoice.

Each of the geographically based reportable segments include net revenues from each of the non-OEM product categories listed above.

Note 4 — Acquisitions
On February 18, 2020, we acquired IWG High Performance Conductors, Inc., a privately-held original equipment manufacturer of minimally invasive medical products and high performance conductors, for $260.0 million. The acquisition, which complements our OEM product portfolio, was financed using borrowings under our revolving credit facility. Based on the preliminary purchase price allocation, the assets acquired principally consist of customer relationships of $139.0 million, intellectual property of $40.0 million and goodwill of $107.1 million. The intangible assets are being amortized over a useful life of 20 years. Goodwill arising from the acquisition represents costs synergies, revenue growth attributable to anticipated increased market penetration from acquired products and future customers and is not tax deductible.

Note 9 — Financial instruments
Foreign currency forward contracts
We use derivative instruments for risk management purposes. Foreign currency forward contracts designated as cash flow hedges are used to manage foreign currency transaction exposure. Foreign currency forward contracts not designated as hedges for accounting purposes are used to manage exposure related to near term foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. We enter into the non-designated foreign currency forward contracts for periods consistent with our currency translation exposures, which generally approximate one month. For the three months ended March 29, 2020 we recognized gains related to non-designated foreign currency forward contracts of $1.6 million, and for the three months ended March 31, 2019 we recognized losses related to non-designated foreign currency forward contracts of $3.0 million.
The total notional amount for all open foreign currency forward contracts designated as cash flow hedges as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $130.7 million and $63.4 million, respectively. The total notional amount for all open non-designated foreign currency forward contracts as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $148.6 million and $132.8 million, respectively. All open foreign currency forward contracts as of March 29, 2020 have durations of 12 months or less.
Cross-currency interest rate swaps
During 2019, we entered into cross-currency swap agreements with 5 different financial institution counterparties to hedge against the effect of variability in the U.S. dollar to euro exchange rate. Under the terms of the cross-currency swap agreements, we have notionally exchanged $250 million at an annual interest rate of 4.8750% for €219.2 million at an annual interest rate of 2.4595%. The swap agreements are designed as net investment hedges and expire on March 4, 2024.
During 2018, we entered into cross-currency swap agreements with 6 different financial institution counterparties to hedge against the effect of variability in the U.S. dollar to euro exchange rate. Under the terms of the cross-currency swap agreements, we have notionally exchanged $500 million at an annual interest rate of 4.625% for €433.9 million at an annual interest rate of 1.942%. The swap agreements are designed as net investment hedges and expire on October 4, 2023.

(Unaudited)

The swap agreements described above require an exchange of the notional amounts upon expiration or earlier termination of the agreements. We and the counterparties have agreed to effect the exchange through a net settlement.
The cross-currency swaps are marked to market at each reporting date and any changes in fair value are recognized as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) ("AOCI"). For the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019, we recognized foreign exchange gains of $25.0 million and $6.6 million, respectively, within AOCI related to the cross-currency swaps. For the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019, we recognized $4.9 million and $3.9 million, respectively, in interest benefit related to the cross-currency swaps.

There was 0 ineffectiveness related to our cash flow hedges during the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019.
Trade receivables
In the ordinary course of business, we grant non-interest bearing trade credit to our customers on normal credit terms. In an effort to reduce our credit risk, we (i) establish credit limits for all of our customer relationships, (ii) perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers’ financial condition, (iii) monitor the payment history and aging of our customers’ receivables, and (iv) monitor open orders against an individual customer’s outstanding receivable balance.
Our allowance for credit losses is maintained for trade accounts receivable based on the expected collectability of accounts receivable, after considering our historical collection experience, the length of time an account is outstanding, the financial position of the customer, information provided by credit rating services in addition to new requirements under the accounting guidance, effective January 1, 2020, that includes the consideration of events or circumstances indicating historic collection rates may not be indicative of future collectability, for example, potential customer liquidity concerns resulting from COVID-19, that may impact the collectability of our receivables as well as our estimate of credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of our receivables. To date, we have not experienced significant payment defaults by, or identified other significant collectability concerns with, our

customers. The assumptions utilized in our current estimates may change due to changes in circumstances, additional future developments and the resolution of other contingencies.

The allowance for credit losses as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $11.0 million and $9.1 million, respectively. The current portion of the allowance for credit losses, which was $6.9 million and $5.3 million as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, was recognized as a reduction of accounts receivable, net.

Valuation Techniques
Our financial assets valued based upon Level 1 inputs are comprised of investments in marketable securities held in trust, which are available to satisfy benefit obligations under our benefit plans and other arrangements. The investment assets of the trust are valued using quoted market prices.
Our financial assets and liabilities valued based upon Level 2 inputs are comprised of foreign currency forward contracts and cross-currency interest rate swap agreements. We use foreign currency forwards and cross-currency interest rate swaps to manage foreign currency transaction exposure, as well as exposure to foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. We measure the fair value of the foreign currency forwards and cross-currency swaps by calculating the amount required to enter into offsetting contracts with similar remaining maturities, based on quoted market prices, and taking into account the creditworthiness of the counterparties.

Our financial liabilities valued based upon Level 3 inputs (inputs that are not observable in the market) are comprised of contingent consideration arrangements pertaining to our acquisitions, which are discussed immediately below.
Contingent consideration
Contingent consideration liabilities, which primarily consist of payment obligations that are contingent upon the achievement of revenue-based goals, but also can be based on other milestones such as regulatory approvals, are remeasured to fair value each reporting period using assumptions including estimated revenues (based on internal operational budgets and long-range strategic plans), discount rates, probability of payment and projected payment dates.

We determine the fair value of the contingent consideration liabilities related to the NeoTract and Essential Medical acquisitions, which represent most of our contingent consideration liabilities as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019, using a Monte Carlo simulation (which involves a simulation of future revenues during the earn-out period using management's best estimates). Increases in projected revenues, estimated cash flows and probabilities of payment may result in significantly higher fair value measurements; decreases in these items may have the opposite effect. Increases in the discount rates in periods prior to payment may result in significantly lower fair value measurements and decreases in the discount rates may have the opposite effect.
The table below provides additional information regarding the valuation technique and inputs used in determining the fair value of contingent consideration.

Note 11 — Shareholders’ equity
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed in the same manner except that the weighted average number of shares is increased to include dilutive securities. The following table provides a reconciliation of basic to diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding:

 Three Months Ended

Effective income tax rate7.8%20.7%
The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019 was 7.8% and 20.7%, respectively. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 29, 2020, as compared to the prior year period, reflects a non-taxable contingent consideration adjustment recognized in connection with a decrease in the fair value of our contingent consideration liabilities. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2019 reflects significant non-deductible termination benefits incurred in connection with the 2019 Footprint realignment plan. In addition, the effective tax rates for both the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019 reflect a net excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation.
In April 2020, we became aware of a new interpretation of a non-U.S. tax law that could apply to certain of our previous and current intercompany transactions. We are evaluating this new information and the effect, if any, on our tax positions. The amount of any potential impact on our financial statements is not yet estimable at this time but could be material to our results of operations. We do not expect any additional liability to result in a material impact to our liquidity or overall financial position.

Note 13 — Commitments and contingent liabilities
Environmental: We are subject to contingencies as a result of environmental laws and regulations that in the future may require us to take further action to correct the effects on the environment of prior disposal practices or releases of chemical or petroleum substances by us or other parties. Much of this liability results from the U.S. Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, often referred to as Superfund, the U.S. Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and similar state laws. These laws require us to undertake certain investigative and remedial activities at sites where we conduct or once conducted operations or at sites where Company-generated waste was disposed.
Remediation activities vary substantially in duration and cost from site to site. These activities, and their associated costs, depend on the mix of unique site characteristics, evolving remediation technologies, the regulatory agencies involved and their enforcement policies, as well as the presence or absence of other potentially responsible parties. At March 29, 2020, we have recorded $0.7 million and $6.0 million in accrued liabilities and other liabilities, respectively, relating to these matters. Considerable uncertainty exists with respect to these liabilities and, if adverse changes in circumstances occur, the potential liability may exceed the amount accrued as of March 29, 2020. The time frame over which the accrued amounts may be paid out, based on past history, is estimated to be 10-15 years.
Litigation: We are a party to various lawsuits and claims arising in the normal course of business. These lawsuits and claims include actions involving product liability, product warranty, commercial disputes, intellectual property, contract, employment, environmental and other matters. As of March 29, 2020, we have recorded accrued liabilities of $0.3 million in connection with such contingencies, representing our best estimate of the cost within the range of estimated possible losses that will be incurred to resolve these matters.
Based on information currently available, advice of counsel, established reserves and other resources, we do not believe that the outcome of any outstanding litigation and claims is likely to be, individually or in the aggregate, material to our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. However, in the event of unexpected further developments, it is possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, or other similar matters, if unfavorable, may be materially adverse to our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. Legal costs such as outside counsel fees and expenses are charged to selling, general and administrative expenses in the period incurred.
Tax audits and examinations: We are routinely subject to tax examinations by various tax authorities. As of March 29, 2020, the most significant tax examination in process is in Germany. We may establish reserves with
17

(Unaudited)

respect to our uncertain tax positions, after we adjust the reserves to address developments with respect to our uncertain tax positions, including developments in this tax examination. Accordingly, developments in tax audits and examinations, including resolution of uncertain tax positions, could result in increases or decreases to our recorded tax liabilities, which could impact our financial results.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Overview
Teleflex Incorporated (“we,” “us,” “our" and “Teleflex”) is a global provider of medical technology products focused on enhancing clinical benefits, improving patient and provider safety and reducing total procedural costs. We primarily design, develop, manufacture and supply single-use medical devices used by hospitals and healthcare providers for common diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in critical care and surgical applications. We market and sell our products worldwide through a combination of our direct sales force and distributors. Because our products are used in numerous markets and for a variety of procedures, we are not dependent upon any one end-market or procedure. We are focused on achieving consistent, sustainable and profitable growth by increasing our market share and improving our operating efficiencies.
 
We evaluate our portfolio of products and businesses on an ongoing basis to ensure alignment with our overall objectives. Based on our evaluation, we may identify opportunities to divest businesses and product lines that do not meet our objectives. In addition, we may seek to optimize utilization of our facilities through restructuring initiatives designed to further improve our cost structure and enhance our competitive position. We also may continue to explore opportunities to expand the size of our business and improve operating margins through a combination of acquisitions and distributor to direct sales conversions, which generally involve our elimination of a distributor from the sales channel, either by acquiring the distributor or terminating the distributor relationship (in some instances, particularly in Asia, the conversions involve our acquisition or termination of a master distributor and the continued sale of our products through sub-distributors or through new distributors). Distributor to direct sales conversions are designed to facilitate improved product pricing and more direct access to the end users of our products within the sales channel.
COVID-19 pandemic
We continue to experience the effects of the global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 novel strain of coronavirus. Among other things, the response to the COVID-19 pandemic has had the effect of reducing the number of elective procedures being carried out, which has impacted and continues to impact some of our product categories, including our interventional urology, interventional and surgical products, which have experienced and continue to experience decreased demand. For the three months ended March 29, 2020, we experienced increased demand in our respiratory and vascular access product categories. We continue to experience increased demand primarily in our respiratory product category. From a segment perspective, our Americas segment was negatively impacted, primarily due to the reduction in elective procedures, and our EMEA segment benefited due to increased demand for our products used in the treatment of patients with COVID-19. Conversely, our Asia segment was negatively impacted, in part, due to government mandated shut-downs in certain countries. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting other elements of our operations, as well as our employees, contractors, suppliers, customers and other business partners. To date, we have not experienced significant disruptions in the global supply chain for our products that are in high demand, but delivery times have lengthened.
In addition, there have been and continues to be impacts on our cost structure resulting from measures that we and other businesses are taking or will take, in accordance with governmental requirements and otherwise, to protect our employees and business partners. We continue to assess the impact on our business (including our employees, customers and suppliers) of travel restrictions, border closures and quarantines as they affect our various sites, including our 35 manufacturing sites located in various countries. In most jurisdictions, our manufacturing and distribution sites remain open because we are considered an essential business. During the three months ended March 29, 2020, we experienced, and we continue to experience, some inefficiencies in our manufacturing operations due to government restrictions placed on facilities in certain locations primarily in Asia. Additionally, we have experienced and continue to experience a higher than normal level of absenteeism across our global manufacturing sites. From an operating expense perspective, we have experienced and continue to experience net decreases in selling, general and administrative expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic due to cost mitigation efforts implemented to control discretionary spending such as certain employee-related costs as well as travel and related expenses. Notwithstanding the above described impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the crisis did not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations for the three months ended March 29, 2020. Overall, we believe that the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to negatively affect our revenues and operations, at least over the near-term, and because of the dynamic nature of the crisis, we cannot accurately predict the extent or duration of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Results of Operations
As used in this discussion, "new products" are products for which commercial sales have commenced within the past 36 months, and “existing products” are products for which commercial sales commenced more than 36 months ago. Discussion of results of operations items that reference the effect of one or more acquired and/or divested businesses or assets (except as noted below with respect to acquired distributors) generally reflects the impact of the acquisitions and/or divestitures within the first 12 months following the date of the acquisition and/or divestiture. In addition to increases and decreases in the per unit selling prices of our products to our customers, our discussion of the impact of product price increases and decreases also reflects the impact on the pricing of our products resulting from the elimination of the distributor, either through acquisition or termination of the distributor, from the sales channel.
Certain financial information is presented on a rounded basis, which may cause minor differences.

Net revenues$630.6  $613.6  
Net revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $17.0 million, or 2.8%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to a $15.7 million increase in sales volumes of existing products, and to a lesser extent, an increase in new product sales and net revenues generated by the acquisition of IWG High Performance Conductors, Inc. (HPC). These increases were partially offset by unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates of $7.4 million and a decrease in revenue caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross margin for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased 10 basis points, or 0.2%, compared to the prior year period. The increase in gross margin was primarily attributable to benefits from cost improvement initiatives and the impact of favorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. These increases were largely offset by the unfavorable impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the adverse impact of the step-up in carrying value of inventory recognized in connection with our HPC acquisition.

Percentage of sales23.4 %33.7 %
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 29, 2020 decreased $59.1 million compared to the prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $59.5 million reduction in the estimated fair value of our contingent consideration liabilities, which largely relate to revenue-based milestone payments, due to adverse financial projections resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, for the three months ended March 29, 2020 there were net decreases to selling, general and administrative expenses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, which were largely offset by increases in normal operating expenses inclusive of selling expenses.

Research and development$27.4  $27.2  
Percentage of sales4.3 %4.4 %
The increase in research and development expenses for the three months ended March 29, 2020 compared to the prior year period was primarily attributable to European Union Medical Device Regulation ("EU MDR") related costs partially offset by lower project spend across several of our product portfolios.
Restructuring and impairment charges
Anticipated charges and pre-tax savings related to restructuring programs and other similar cost savings initiatives
We have ongoing restructuring programs primarily related to the consolidation of our manufacturing operations (referred to as our 2019, 2018 and 2014 Footprint realignment plans). We also have similar ongoing activities to relocate certain manufacturing operations within our OEM segment (the "OEM initiative") that do not meet the criteria for a restructuring program under applicable accounting guidance; nevertheless, the activities should result in cost savings (we expect only minimal costs to be incurred in connection with the OEM initiative). With respect to our currently ongoing restructuring programs and the OEM initiative, the table below summarizes charges incurred or estimated to be incurred and estimated annual pre-tax savings to be realized as follows: (1) with respect to charges (a) the estimated total charges that will have been incurred once the restructuring programs and OEM initiative are completed; (b) the charges incurred through December 31, 2019; and (c) the estimated charges to be incurred from January 1, 2020 through the last anticipated completion date of the restructuring programs and OEM initiative, December 31, 2026 and (2) with respect to estimated annual pre-tax savings, (a) the estimated total annual pre-tax savings to be realized once the restructuring programs and OEM initiative are completed; (b) the estimated annual pre-tax savings realized based on the progress of the restructuring programs and OEM initiative through December 31, 2019; and (c) the estimated additional annual pre-tax savings to be realized from January 1, 2020 through the last anticipated completion date of the restructuring programs and the OEM initiative, December 31, 2026.
Estimated charges and pre-tax savings are subject to change based on, among other things, the nature and timing of restructuring activities and similar activities, changes in the scope of restructuring programs and the OEM initiative, unanticipated expenditures and other developments including the uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the effect of additional acquisitions or dispositions, the failure to realize anticipated savings from a supply contract related to a component included in certain kits sold by our Americas segment and other factors that were not reflected in the assumptions made by management in previously estimating restructuring and restructuring related charges and estimated pre-tax savings. Moreover, estimated pre-tax savings constituting efficiencies with respect to increased costs that otherwise would have resulted from business acquisitions involve, among other things, assumptions regarding the cost structure and integration of businesses that previously were not administered by our management, which are subject to a particularly high degree of risk and uncertainty. It is likely that estimates of charges and pre-tax savings will change from time to time, and the table below reflects changes from amounts previously estimated. In addition, the table below does not include estimated charges and pre-tax savings related to substantially completed programs. Additional details, including estimated charges expected to be incurred in connection with our restructuring programs, are described in Note 5 to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report.

Pre-tax savings also can be affected by increases or decreases in sales volumes generated by the businesses subject to the consolidation of manufacturing operations; such variations in revenues can increase or decrease pre-tax savings generated by the consolidation of manufacturing operations. For example, an increase in sales volumes generated by the affected businesses, although likely increasing manufacturing costs, may generate additional savings with respect to costs that otherwise would have been incurred if the manufacturing operations were not consolidated.

Most of these charges (other than the tax charge) are expected to be recognized as cost of goods sold.
(2)Substantially all of the pre-tax savings are expected to result in reductions to cost of goods sold.

Average interest rate on debt2.7 %3.9 %
The decrease in interest expense for the three months ended March 29, 2020 compared to the prior year period was primarily due to a lower average interest rate resulting from decreases in interest rates associated with our variable interest rate debt instruments and as well as our cross-currency swap agreement that we executed in the latter part of the first quarter of 2019.
Taxes on income from continuing operations
 Three Months Ended

Effective income tax rate7.8 %20.7 %
The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 29, 2020 was 7.8%, and 20.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, respectively. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 29, 2020, as compared to the prior year period, reflects a non-taxable contingent consideration adjustment recognized in connection with a decrease in the fair value of our contingent consideration liabilities. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2019 reflects significant non-deductible termination benefits incurred in connection with the 2019 Footprint realignment plan. In addition, the effective tax rates for both the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019 reflect a net excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation.
In April 2020, we became aware of a new interpretation of a non-U.S. tax law that could apply to certain of our previous and current intercompany transactions. We are evaluating this new information and the effect, if any, on our tax positions. The amount of any potential impact on our financial statements is not yet estimable at this time but
22


could be material to our results of operations. We do not expect any additional liability to result in a material impact to our liquidity or overall financial position.

Comparison of the three months ended March 29, 2020 and March 31, 2019
Americas
Americas net revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $14.0 million, or 4.1%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to a $12.7 million increase in sales volume of existing products, mostly in interventional urology, as well as an increase in new product sales, which were partially offset by a decrease in revenues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Americas operating profit for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $75.4 million, or 114.9%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to a decrease in the fair value of our contingent consideration liabilities and, to a lesser extent, an increase in gross profit resulting from higher sales.
EMEA
EMEA net revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $1.5 million, or 1.0%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to a $6.1 million increase in sales volumes of existing products, inclusive of a benefit from the COVID-19, partially offset by unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates of $4.2 million.
EMEA operating profit for the three months ended March 29, 2020 decreased $6.6 million, or 24.4%, compared to the prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and an increase in research and development expenses inclusive of higher EU MDR related costs. The decreases in operating profit were partially offset by lower general and administrative expenses.
Asia
Asia net revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2020 decreased $7.7 million, or 12.6%, compared to the prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $7.3 million decrease in sales volumes of existing products, inclusive of the negative impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, and unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
23


Asia operating profit for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $0.2 million, or 2.5%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to lower general and administrative expenses partially offset by the impact of unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and a decrease in gross profit resulting from lower sales.
OEM
OEM net revenues for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $9.2 million, or 16.9%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to net revenues of $5.0 million generated from our acquisition of HPC and a $4.2 million increase in sales volumes of existing products.
OEM operating profit for the three months ended March 29, 2020 increased $1.8 million, or 13.3% compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit resulting from higher sales partially offset by expenses incurred in connection with the HPC acquisition.


Liquidity and Capital Resources
While the potential economic impact resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the duration of the pandemic's impact are difficult to assess or predict, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global financial markets may reduce our ability to access capital, which could negatively impact our short-term and long-term liquidity. In consideration of the significant uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to assess our liquidity and anticipated capital requirements. Notwithstanding the significant uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe our cash flow from operations, available cash and cash equivalents and borrowings under our revolving credit facility will enable us to fund our operating requirements, capital expenditures and debt obligations for the next 12 months and the foreseeable future. We have net cash provided by United States based operating activities as well as non-United States sources of cash available to help fund our debt service requirements in the United States. We manage our worldwide cash requirements by monitoring the funds available among our subsidiaries and determining the extent to which we can access those funds on a cost effective basis.
In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely monitoring our receivables and payables. To date, we have not experienced significant payment defaults by, or identified other collectability concerns with, our customers, and we have sufficient lending commitments in place to enable us to fund our anticipated additional operating needs.
Cash Flows
Net cash used in operating activities from continuing operations was $11.5 million for the three months ended March 29, 2020 as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $60.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The $71.7 million decrease was primarily attributable to an increase in contingent consideration payments. Additionally, for the three months ended March 29, 2020, we made a $10.0 million pension contribution and had an increase in payroll and benefit related payments as compared to the prior year period.
Net cash used in investing activities from continuing operations was $284.4 million for the three months ended March 29, 2020, which included a $260.0 million payment for the acquisition of HPC as well as capital expenditures of $19.7 million.
Net cash provided by financing activities from continuing operations was $405.3 million for the three months ended March 29, 2020, which reflected a net increase in borrowings of $485.0 million. The cash received from the increase in borrowings was utilized to fund the $260.0 million acquisition of HPC; to increase our available cash on hand by $150.0 million to strengthen our liquidity as a precautionary measure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; and to help fund the NeoTract contingent consideration payment. Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 29, 2020 also reflects contingent consideration payments of $60.9 million and dividend payments of $15.8 million.
Borrowings
On March 30, 2020, we increased our borrowing capacity related to our accounts receivable securitization facility from $50 million to $75 million.
The 4.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the "2026 Notes") contain covenants that, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, limit or restrict our ability, and the ability of our subsidiaries, to incur additional debt or
24


issue preferred stock or other disqualified stock, create liens, merge, consolidate, or dispose of certain assets, pay dividends, make investments or make other restricted payments, or enter into transactions with our affiliates. The indenture governing our 4.625% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “2027 Notes”) contains covenants that, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, limit or restrict our ability, and the ability of our subsidiaries, to create liens; consolidate, merge or dispose of certain assets; and enter into sale leaseback transactions.
As of March 29, 2020, we were in compliance with these requirements. The obligations under the Credit Agreement, the 2026 Notes and the 2027 Notes are guaranteed (subject to certain exceptions) by substantially all of our material domestic subsidiaries, and the obligations under the Credit Agreement are (subject to certain exceptions and limitations) secured by a lien on substantially all of the assets owned by us and each guarantor.
Summarized Financial Information – Obligor Group
Our $400 million principal amount of 4.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “2026 Notes”) and $500 million principal amount of 4.625% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “2027 Notes," and together with the 2026 Notes, the "Senior Notes") are issued by Teleflex Incorporated (the “Parent Company”), and payment of the Parent Company's obligations under the Senior Notes is guaranteed, jointly and severally, by an enumerated group of the Parent Company’s subsidiaries (each, a “Guarantor Subsidiary” and collectively, the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). The guarantees are full and unconditional, subject to certain customary release provisions. Each Guarantor Subsidiary is directly or indirectly 100% owned by the Parent Company. Summarized financial information for the Parent and Guarantor Subsidiaries (collectively, the “Obligor Group”) as of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019 and for the three months ended March 29, 2020 is as follows:

The same accounting policies as described in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 are used by the Parent Company and each of its subsidiaries in connection with the summarized financial information presented above. The Intercompany column in the table above represents transactions between and among the Obligor Group and non-guarantor subsidiaries (i.e. those subsidiaries of the Parent Company that have not guaranteed payment of the Senior Notes). Obligor investments in non-guarantor subsidiaries and any related activity are excluded from the financial information presented above.
Critical Accounting Estimates
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions.
25


In our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, we provided disclosure regarding our critical accounting estimates, which are reflective of significant judgments and uncertainties, are important to the presentation of our financial condition and results of operations and could potentially result in materially different results under different assumptions and conditions.
New Accounting Standards
See Note 2 to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report for a discussion of recently issued accounting guidance, including estimated effects, if any, of adoption of the guidance on our financial statements.
Forward-Looking Statements
All statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “guidance,” “potential,” “continue,” “project,” “forecast,” “confident,” “prospects” and similar expressions typically are used to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on the then-current expectations, beliefs, assumptions, estimates and forecasts about our business and the industry and markets in which we operate. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including the adverse economic conditions associated with the COVID-19 global health pandemic and the associated financial crisis, stay-at-home and other orders, which could cause material delays and cancellations of elective procedures, curtailed or delayed spending by customers and result in disruptions to our supply chain, closure of our facilities, delays in product launches or diversion of management and other resources to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic; the impact of global and regional economic and credit market conditions on healthcare spending; the risk that the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts local economies and causes economies to enter prolonged recessions; changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers or suppliers; delays or cancellations of shipments; demand for and market acceptance of new and existing products; our inability to provide products to our customers, which may be due to, among other things, events that impact key distributors, suppliers and vendors that sterilize our products; our inability to integrate acquired businesses into our operations, realize planned synergies and operate such businesses profitably in accordance with our expectations; our inability to effectively execute our restructuring plans and programs; our inability to realize anticipated savings from restructuring plans and programs; the impact of enacted healthcare reform legislation and proposals to amend, replace or repeal the legislation; changes in Medicare, Medicaid and third party coverage and reimbursements; the impact of tax legislation and related regulations; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on revenues and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; global economic factors, including currency exchange rates, interest rates, trade disputes and sovereign debt issues; difficulties in entering new markets; and general economic conditions. For a further discussion of the risks relating to our business, see Item 1A, "Risk Factors," in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. We expressly disclaim any obligation to update these forward-looking statements, except as otherwise specifically stated by us or as required by law or regulation.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
There have been no material changes to the information set forth in Part II, Item 7A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures
(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report are functioning effectively to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A controls system cannot provide
26


absolute assurance that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.
(b) Change in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
No change in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during our most recently completed fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
27


PART II OTHER INFORMATION
 
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
We are party to various lawsuits and claims arising in the normal course of business. These lawsuits and claims include actions involving product liability and product warranty, commercial disputes, intellectual property, contract, employment, environmental and other matters. As of March 29, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we have accrued liabilities of approximately $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively, in connection with these matters, representing our best estimate of the cost within the range of estimated possible loss that will be incurred to resolve these matters. Based on information currently available, advice of counsel, established reserves and other resources, we do not believe that the outcome of any outstanding lawsuits or claims is likely to be, individually or in the aggregate, material to our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. However, in the event of unexpected further developments, it is possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, or other similar matters, if unfavorable, may be materially adverse to our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

Item 1A. Risk Factors
See the information set forth in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. There have been no significant changes in risk factors for the quarter ended March 29, 2020 except as set forth below. The risk factor set forth below replaces in its entirety the risk factor in our Annual Report on Form 10-K with the title “Our results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected by public health epidemics, including the novel coronavirus reported to have originated in Wuhan, China”:
Our results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected by public health epidemics, including the ongoing COVID-19 global health pandemic.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the global outbreak of COVID-19 to be a pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted economic activity and markets around the world. If the pandemic continues and conditions worsen, it could negatively impact our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity in numerous ways, including, but not limited to, those outlined below:
It has resulted, and we expect it will continue to result, in lower revenues in certain of our product categories, including our interventional urology (which revenues are primarily concentrated in our Americas segment), interventional and surgical product categories, in which we sell products largely utilized in elective procedures, which have been significantly reduced or suspended due to the pandemic.
It has resulted in higher revenues in our respiratory product category. However, we are unable to predict how long this sustained demand will last or how significant it will be.
It may cause disruptions in the manufacture of our products. We currently rely on our 35 manufacturing sites, with major manufacturing operations located in the Czech Republic, Germany, Malaysia, Mexico and the U.S., to manufacture our products. The COVID-19 pandemic, and/or the governmental or regulatory actions taken in response to COVID-19 pandemic, may interfere with our ability, or that of our employees or suppliers to perform our and their respective responsibilities and obligations relative to the conduct of our business and create a risk to our ability to manufacture our products in a timely manner, or at all. We have experienced and expect to continue to experience inefficiencies in our manufacturing operations due to government restrictions placed on facilities in certain locations primarily in Asia. Additionally, we have experienced and continue to experience a higher than normal level of absenteeism across our global manufacturing sites. In an effort to increase the wider availability of needed medical device products, we may elect to, or the government may require us to, allocate manufacturing capacity (for example, pursuant to the U.S. Defense Production Act) in a way that adversely affects our regular operations and financial results, results in differential treatment of customers and/or adversely affects our customer relationships and reputation.
While we have not experienced significant payment defaults by, or identified other significant collectability concerns with, our customers to date, we may be adversely impacted by delays in payments of outstanding receivables if our customers experience financial difficulties or are unable to borrow money to fund their operations, which may adversely impact their ability to pay for our products on a timely basis, if at all.
The COVID-19 pandemic, including related illness, border closures, travel restrictions, quarantines, lockdowns or other workforce disruptions, could disrupt our suppliers or our suppliers’ suppliers and/or the distribution of our products, whether through our direct sales force or our distributors. These disruptions, or our failure to
28


respond to them, could increase manufacturing or distribution costs or cause delays in delivering, or an inability to deliver, products to our customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased volatility and pricing in the capital markets, and volatility if likely to continue. We might not be able to continue to access preferred sources of liquidity when we would like, and our borrowing costs could increase.
These and other impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, or other pandemics or epidemics, could have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the Risk Factors section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. We might not be able to predict or respond to all impacts on a timely basis to prevent near- or long-term adverse impacts to our results. The severity, magnitude and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic is uncertain, rapidly changing and hard to predict. We do not yet know the full extent of potential delays or impacts on our business, our results of operations or financial condition or on healthcare systems or the global economy as a whole. However, these effects could have an adverse impact on our liquidity, capital resources, operations and business and those of the third parties on which we rely, and such impact could be material.
