Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On February 21, 2014, Teleflex Incorporated (the “Company”) issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. 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 adjusted diluted earnings per share and constant currency revenue growth. Adjusted diluted earnings per shares excludes, depending on the period presented, (i) the effect of charges associated with our restructuring programs, as well as goodwill and other asset impairment charges; (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iii) the gain or loss on sales of businesses and assets; (iv) losses and other charges related to acquisition costs, the reversal of liabilities related to certain contingent consideration arrangements and a previously announced stock keeping unit rationalization program, the establishment of a litigation reserve and a litigation verdict against the Company with respect to a non-operating joint venture; (v) amortization of the debt discount on the Company’s convertible notes; (vi) charges associated with the amortization of additional interest expense related to an interest rate swap terminated in 2011; (vii) intangible amortization expense; and (viii) tax benefits resulting from the resolution of prior years’ tax matters and the filing of prior years’ amended tax returns. In addition, the calculation of diluted shares within adjusted earnings per share gives effect to the anti-dilutive impact of the Company’s convertible note hedge agreements, which reduce the potential economic dilution that otherwise would occur upon conversion of the Company’s senior subordinated convertible notes (under GAAP, the anti-dilutive impact of the convertible note hedge agreements is not reflected in diluted shares). Constant currency revenue and growth exclude the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. The Press Release includes a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations. In addition, management uses these financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when publicly providing guidance on possible future results and to assist in our evaluation of period-to-period comparisons. However, such non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, such non-GAAP financial measures as presented by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported 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.
