RTI Surgical reported that first-quarter revenue exceeded expectations, although the acquisition of Pioneer Surgical in July accounted for the increase over the same period last year.

The Alachua implant company reported $60.7 million in revenues for the first quarter, exceeding prior revenue guidance of $58 million to $59 million, compared with $40.4 million in the first quarter of 2013.

The first-quarter revenues included $19.8 million from the Pioneer acquisition. Compared with both companies’ combined revenues for the first quarter of 2013, total revenues were down 3 percent.

Income showed a net loss of $3.1 million -- or $0.05 per fully diluted share -- compared with net income of $1.5 million and $0.03 per share a year earlier.

Based on first-quarter results, RTI raised its full-year revenue guidance by $3 million to between $248 million and $253 million.

“We continue to see solid recovery in our direct spine and direct sports businesses,” President and CEO Brian Hutchison said in a news release. “The team has done an excellent job this past quarter meeting our goals for expense control as well as launching four new products.”
