BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Integer Holdings Corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Integer” or the “Company”) is a publicly traded corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “ITGR.” Integer is one of the largest medical device outsource manufacturers in the world serving the cardiac, neuromodulation, vascular, orthopedics, advanced surgical and portable medical markets. The Company provides innovative, high-quality medical technologies that enhance the lives of patients worldwide. In addition, it develops batteries for high-end niche applications in the energy, military, and environmental markets. The Company’s reportable segments are: (1) Medical and (2) Non-Medical. The Company’s customers include large multi-national original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) and their affiliated subsidiaries.
On May 3, 2018, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell the Advanced Surgical and Orthopedic product lines (the “AS&O Product Line”) within its Medical segment to Viant (formerly MedPlast, LLC), and on July 2, 2018 completed the sale. The results of operations of the AS&O Product Line are reported as discontinued operations in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for all periods presented. The Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows includes cash flows related to the discontinued operations due to Integer’s (parent) centralized treasury and cash management processes, and, accordingly, cash flow amounts for discontinued operations are disclosed in Note 2 “Discontinued Operations and Divestiture.” All results and information in the condensed consolidated financial statements are presented as continuing operations and exclude the AS&O Product Line unless otherwise noted specifically as discontinued operations. Refer to Note 2 “Discontinued Operations and Divestiture” for additional information.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information (Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 270, Interim Reporting) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the information necessary for a full presentation of financial position, results of operations, and cash flows in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the Company for the periods presented. Intercompany transactions and balances have been fully eliminated in consolidation.
Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, certain components of equity, sales, expenses, and related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2018.
The Company utilizes a fifty-two, fifty-three week fiscal year ending on the Friday nearest December 31. The first quarter of 2019 and 2018 each contained 13 weeks and ended on March 29 and March 30, respectively. The Company’s 2019 fiscal year will end on January 3, 2020 and will be a fifty-three week period. Fiscal year 2018 ended on December 28, 2018 and was a fifty-two week period.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standard Updates (“ASU”) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB").

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance
Adoption of ASC Topic 842
Effective December 29, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842, Leases, which requires the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous guidance. The Company elected to transition to ASC 842 using the option to not restate comparative periods and apply the standard as of the date of initial application. In addition, certain practical expedients were elected which permit the Company to not reassess whether existing contracts are or contain leases, to not reassess the lease classification of any existing leases, and to not reassess initial direct costs for any existing leases. The Company also elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for all classes of underlying assets and the practical expedient related to land easements, allowing the Company to carry-forward its accounting treatment for land easements on existing agreements. The Company did not elect the practical expedient pertaining to the use of hindsight. The Company also made an accounting policy election to keep leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off the balance sheet for all classes of underlying assets.
As a result of the adoption of ASC 842, the Company recognized operating lease right-of-use assets of $40.9 million and lease liabilities of $43.4 million on December 29, 2018. The difference between the lease assets and lease liabilities primarily represents the existing prepaid rent assets, deferred rent liabilities, and tenant improvement allowances, along with a cumulative-effect adjustment to beginning retained earnings. The adoption of ASC 842 did not have a material impact on our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations and Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the three month period ended March 29, 2019.
Refer to Note 11 “Leases” for additional information on the Company’s leases.
Adoption of ASU 2017-12
In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. ASU 2017-12 amends the designation and measurement guidance for qualifying hedging transactions and the presentation of hedge results in an entity’s financial statements. The new guidance removes the concept of separately measuring and reporting hedge ineffectiveness and requires a company to present the earnings effect of the hedging instrument, including any ineffectiveness, in the same income statement line item in which the earnings effect of the hedged item is reported.
ASU 2017-12 continues to allow an entity to exclude the time value of options and forward points from the assessment of hedge effectiveness. For excluded components in cash flow hedges, the base recognition model under this ASU is an amortization approach. An entity still may elect to record changes in the fair value of the excluded component currently in earnings; however, such an election will need to be applied consistently to similar hedges. The Company has elected to continue to record changes in the fair value of the excluded components of its derivative instruments currently in earnings given their highly effective nature.
Finally, this ASU continues to require an initial prospective quantitative hedge effectiveness assessment and documentation at hedge inception. However, if certain criteria are met, entities can elect to subsequently perform prospective and retrospective effectiveness assessments qualitatively, unless facts and circumstances change, and the hedge effectiveness assessment generally does not need to be completed until the first quarterly hedge effectiveness assessment date (i.e., up to three months).
The Company adopted ASU 2017-12 on December 29, 2018, the first day of the Company’s 2019 fiscal year, and did not materially affect the Company’s results of operations. The Company adopted the guidance on the modified retrospective basis and did not recognize a cumulative effect adjustment upon adoption as the Company had not recognized ineffectiveness on any of the hedging instruments existing as of the date of adoption. Refer to Note 14 “Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements” for additional information and disclosures of the Company’s derivatives and hedging activities.
In October 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-16, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Inclusion of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) Overnight Index Swap (OIS) Rate as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes. The amendments in ASU 2018-16 permit the use of the OIS rate based on SOFR as a benchmark interest rate for hedge accounting purposes under Topic 815. The amendments in this update were effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company adopted this guidance prospectively as of December 29, 2018, concurrent with the adoption of ASU 2017-12, to be applied on a prospective basis for qualifying new or redesignated hedging relationships entered into on or after the date of adoption. Adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
