NATUS MEDICAL INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

1 - Basis of Presentation
The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Natus Medical Incorporated (“Natus,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The accounting policies followed in the preparation of the interim condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent in all material respects with those presented in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.
Interim financial reports are prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission; accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for annual financial statements. The interim financial information is unaudited, and reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The accompanying financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. We have made certain reclassifications to the prior period to conform to current period presentation.
Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU 2014-09 requires revenue recognition to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 sets forth a new revenue recognition model that requires identifying the contract, identifying the performance obligations, determining the transaction price, allocating the transaction price to performance obligations and recognizing the revenue upon satisfaction of performance obligations.
The original effective date for ASU 2014-09 would have required the Company to adopt beginning in its first quarter of 2017. In July 2015, the FASB voted to amend ASU 2014-09 by approving a one-year deferral of the effective date as well as providing the option to early adopt the standard on the original effective date. Accordingly, the Company will adopt the standard in its first quarter of 2018. The new revenue standard may be applied retrospectively to each prior period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect recognized as of the date of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new revenue standard on its consolidated financial statements.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This standard requires a lessee to recognize the lease assets and lease liabilities arising from operating leases in the statement of financial position. Qualitative along with specific quantitative disclosures are required by lessees and lessors to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that will result from adopting ASU 2016-02.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvement to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The new standard contains several amendments that simplifies the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions, including the accounting for income

Table of Contents

taxes, forfeitures, statutory tax withholding requirements, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The changes in the new standard eliminate the accounting for excess tax benefits to be recognized in additional paid-in capital and tax deficiencies recognized either in the income tax provision or in additional paid-in capital. The Company elected early adoption of ASU 2016-09 in the first quarter of 2016 which was applied using a modified retrospective approach. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recognized all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies as income tax expense or benefit as a discrete event. An income tax benefit of approximately $1.9 million was recognized in the period ended September 30, 2016 as a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-09. There was no change to retained earnings with respect to excess tax benefits, as this is not applicable to the Company. The treatment of forfeitures has not changed as we are electing to continue our current process of estimating the number of forfeitures. As such, this has no cumulative effect on retained earnings. With the early adoption of 2016-09, we have elected to present the cash flow statement on a prospective transition method and no prior periods have been adjusted.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. This standard provides guidance for eight cash flow classification issues in current GAAP. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company elected early adoption of ASU 2016-15 in the first quarter of 2016 relating to Contingent Consideration Payments Made after a Business Combination. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recognized $1.0 million as a cash outflow for investing activities on the Statement of Cash Flows. This payment was made soon after the acquisition date of a business combination to settle the contingent consideration from the Monarch acquisition.

2 - Business Combinations
RetCam
On July 6, 2016, we acquired the portfolio of RetCam Imaging Systems ("RetCam") from Clarity Medical Systems, Inc. for $10.6 million in cash. RetCam is an imaging system used to diagnose and monitor a range of ophthalmic maladies in premature infants. The purchase agreement also included a holdback of $2.0 million which is contingent upon completion of certain modifications to RetCam 3 no later than March 31, 2017. Subsequent to the acquisition, an additional $1.1 million was paid by the Company to Clarity Medical Systems as a result of a working capital adjustment. Results of operations for RetCam will be included in our consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition. The total purchase price was allocated $7.7 million to tangible assets, $5.0 million to intangible assets with an assigned weighted average life of 5 years being amortized on the straight line method, and $1.0 million to goodwill, offset by $2.0 million to net liabilities. Purchase price allocation is considered preliminary at this time although no material adjustments are anticipated. Pro forma financial information for the RetCam acquisition is not presented as it is not considered material.
NeuroQuest
On March 2, 2016, we acquired NeuroQuest, LLC (“NeuroQuest”) through an asset purchase. NeuroQuest complements our Global Neuro-Diagnostics ("GND") and Monarch Medical Diagnostics, LLC ("Monarch") acquisitions which offer patients a convenient way to complete routine-electroencephalography ("EEG") and extended video electronencephalography ("VEEG") testing. The cash consideration for NeuroQuest was $4.6 million. The purchase agreement also included an asset consideration holdback of $0.5 million. The total purchase price was allocated to $0.5 million of tangible assets, $1.3 million of intangible assets with an assigned weighted average life of 5 years being amortized on the straight line method, and $3.5 million of goodwill, offset by $0.1 million of net liabilities. Purchase price allocation is considered preliminary at this time. Pro forma financial information for the NeuroQuest acquisition is not presented as it is not considered material.
Monarch

-7-

Table of Contents

We acquired Monarch Medical Diagnostics, LLC ("Monarch") through an asset purchase on November 13, 2015. Monarch's service compliments our GND acquisition which offers patients a convenient way to complete routine and extended video EEG diagnostic testing. The service also provides comprehensive reporting and support to the physician. The cash consideration for Monarch was $2.7 million. The purchase agreement also included a contingent consideration holdback of $1.0 million which we paid on January 11, 2016. The total purchase price was allocated to $1.2 million of tangible assets, $1.2 million of intangible assets with an assigned weighted average life of 5 years being amortized on the straight line method, and $2.4 million of goodwill. Pro forma financial information for the Monarch acquisition is not presented as it is not considered material.
Global Neuro-Diagnostics
We acquired GND Operating LLC, and Braincare, LLC (collectively "GND") through an equity purchase on January 23, 2015. GND's service offers patients a convenient way to complete routine and extended video EEG diagnostic testing, which can be performed at the home, hospital or physician's office. The service also provides comprehensive reporting and support to the physician. The cash consideration for GND was $11.4 million, which consists primarily of $1.5 million of tangible assets, $4.8 million of intangible assets with an assigned weighted average life of 5 years being amortized on the straight line method, and $8.9 million of goodwill, offset by $0.5 million of net liabilities. The purchase agreement also included an earn-out provision contingent upon GND achieving certain revenue milestones from 2015 to 2017. At acquisition we estimated the earn-out to be $3.2 million. Each quarter we evaluate expected future revenue and adjust our estimate accordingly. We currently estimate this earn-out to be $0.5 million, which was a reduction of $2.8 million in the current quarter, as we expect lower revenues for 2016 and 2017 than anticipated. Pro forma financial information for the GND acquisition is not presented as it is not considered material.
NicView
On January 2, 2015, we purchased the assets of Health Observation Systems, LLC ("NicView") for cash consideration of $1.1 million, of which $0.3 million was allocated to tangible assets and $2.7 million to goodwill, offset by $0.6 million allocated to net liabilities. NicView provides streaming video for families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. The asset purchase agreement included an earn-out condition of $1.3 million that was contingent upon orders received and installed by February 28, 2016. The earn-out was paid on March 28, 2016. Pro forma financial information for the NicView acquisition is not presented as it is not considered material.

4 - Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Short-Term Investments
The Company has invested its excess cash in highly liquid marketable securities such as corporate debt instruments, U.S. government agency securities and asset-backed securities. Investments with maturities greater

Table of Contents

than one year are classified as current because management considers all investments to be available for current operations.

The Company's investments are designed to provide liquidity, preserve capital and maximize total return on invested assets with a focus on high credit-quality securities.

The Company's investments have been classified and accounted for as available-for-sale. Such investments are recorded at fair value and unrealized holding gains and losses are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the stockholders' equity until realized. Realized gains and losses on sales of investments, if any, are determined on the specific identification method and are reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) to results of operations as other income (expense).

The Company, to date, has not determined that any of the unrealized losses on its investments are considered to be other-than-temporary. The Company reviews its investment portfolio to determine if any security is other-than-temporarily impaired, which would require the Company to record an impairment charge in the period any such determination is made. In making this judgment, the Company evaluates, among other things: the duration and extent to which the fair value of a security is less than its cost; the financial condition of the issuer and any changes thereto; and the Company's intent and ability to hold its investment for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in market value, or whether the Company will more likely than not be required to sell the security before recovery of its aggregated cost basis. The Company has evaluated its investments as of September 30, 2016 and has determined that no investments with unrealized losses are other-than-temporarily impaired. No investments have been in a continuous loss position greater than one year.

At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we have classified $13.2 million and $8.0 million, respectively, of inventories as other assets. We expect that we will not use this inventory within the next twelve months. This inventory consists primarily of last time buy items from our suppliers, service components used to repair products pursuant to warranty obligations and extended service contracts, including service components for products we are not currently selling and inventory that we purchased in bulk quantities. Management believes that these inventories will be utilized for their intended purpose.

Depreciation expense of property and equipment was approximately $0.9 million and $2.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, and approximately $1.0 million and $3.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.

9 - Reserve for Product Warranties
We provide a warranty with our products that is generally one year in length, but in some cases regulations may require us to provide repair or remediation beyond our typical warranty period. If any of our products contain defects, we may be required to incur additional repair and remediation costs. Service for domestic customers is provided by Company-owned service centers that perform all service, repair, and calibration services. Service for international customers is provided by a combination of Company-owned facilities and vendors on a contract basis.
A warranty reserve is included in accrued liabilities for the expected future costs of servicing products. Additions to the reserve are based on management’s best estimate of probable liability. We consider a combination of factors including material and labor costs, regulatory requirements, and other judgments in determining the amount of the reserve. The reserve is reduced as costs are incurred to honor existing warranty and regulatory obligations.
As of September 30, 2016 we had accrued $6.5 million of estimated costs to bring certain NeoBLUE® phototherapy products into U.S. regulatory compliance. Our estimate of these costs is primarily based upon the number of units outstanding that may require repair and costs associated with shipping and repairing the product. We expect that costs associated with bringing the products back into compliance will not be incurred until the first quarter of 2017. Additional costs could be incurred in future periods to bring products into regulatory compliance, but such costs cannot currently be reasonably estimated.

The estimates we use in projecting future product warranty costs may prove to be incorrect. Any future determination that our product warranty reserves are understated could result in increases to our cost of sales and reductions in our operating profits and results of operations.

10 - Share-Based Compensation
As of September 30, 2016, we have two active share-based compensation plans, the 2011 Stock Awards Plan and the 2011 Employee Stock Purchase Plan. The terms of awards granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and our methods for determining grant-date fair value of the awards are consistent with those described in the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.

12 - Income Taxes
Provision for Income Tax Expense
We recorded provisions for income tax of $1.0 million and $7.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 7.2% and 19.0% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. We recorded provisions for income tax of $5.2 million and $12.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 32.0% and 30.4% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.
Our effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 differed from the federal statutory tax rate primarily because of profits in foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates than the federal statutory rate. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared with the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 is primarily attributable to shifts in the geographical mix of income whereby the income subject to income taxes recorded in high tax jurisdictions significantly decreased, and the income subject to income taxes recorded in low tax jurisdictions significantly increased.
Our year-to-date results reflect the projected fiscal year 2016 effective tax rate as adjusted for the impact of any quarterly discrete events. The impact of the discrete items recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2016 decreased the quarterly tax rate by 11.8%. The tax impacts from material discrete items include the adoption of ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, tax true-up adjustments relating to the filing of 2015 tax returns and adjustment of certain earn-out liabilities. The impacts from adoption of ASU 2016-09 decreased our quarterly effective tax rate by 3.8%; the tax true-up adjustments recorded in this quarter related to the filing of 2015 tax returns increased our quarterly tax rate by 1.5% and the accounting income recognized in the adjustment of earn-out liabilities, which is not subject to income taxes, decreased our quarterly effective tax rate by 7.5%. The impact of the discrete items

-13-

Table of Contents

recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2015 decreased the quarterly tax rate by 0.1%. Excluding the impact of discrete items, the decrease in our quarterly effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared with the three months ended September 30, 2015, is primarily attributable to forecasted shifts in the geographical mix of income.
We recorded $0.3 million net tax expense of unrecognized tax benefits for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Within the next twelve months, it is possible our uncertain tax benefit may change within a range of approximately zero to $1.0 million. Our tax returns remain open to examinations as follows: U.S. Federal, 2013 through 2015; U.S. States, 2011 through 2015; and significant foreign jurisdictions, 2013 through 2015.

13 - Restructuring Reserves
Historically, the Company has completed multiple acquisitions of other companies and businesses. Following an acquisition the Company will, as it determines appropriate, initiate restructuring events to eliminate redundant costs to maintain a competitive cost structure. Restructuring expenses are related to permanent reductions in workforce and redundant facility closures.
The balance of the restructuring reserve is included in accrued liabilities on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Employee termination benefits are included as a part of restructuring expenses.
Activity in the restructuring reserves for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 is as follows (in thousands):

14 - Debt and Credit Arrangements
The Company has a Credit Agreement with JP Morgan Chase Bank ("JP Morgan") and Citibank, NA (“Citibank”). The Credit Agreement provides for an aggregate $150.0 million of secured revolving credit facility. The Credit Agreement contains covenants, including covenants relating to maintenance of books and records, financial reporting and notification, compliance with laws, maintenance of properties and insurance, and limitations on guaranties, investments, issuance of debt, lease obligations and capital expenditures, and is secured by virtually all of the Company's assets. The Credit Agreement provides for events of default, including failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to perform or observe covenants, bankruptcy or insolvency events and the occurrence of a material adverse effect. The Company has no other significant credit facilities. As of September 30, 2016 no amounts were outstanding under the Credit Agreement. The Company expects to finance a portion of an acquisition announced in September 2016 with borrowings under the revolving credit facility, as well as existing cash.

Pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement, the outstanding principal balance will bear interest at either (a) a fluctuating rate per annum equal to the Applicable Rate, as defined in the Credit Agreement, depending on our leverage ratio plus the higher of (i) the federal funds rate plus one-half of one percent per annum; (ii) the prime rate in effect on such a day; and (iii) the LIBOR rate plus one percent, or (b) a fluctuating rate per annum of LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Rate. The Credit Agreement matures on September 23, 2021, at which time all principal amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement will be due and payable.

16 - Fair Value Measurements

-15-

Table of Contents

ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined under ASC 820 as the exit price associated with the sale of an asset or transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 establishes the following three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value:
Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.
Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.
The Company does not have any financial assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis.
The following financial instruments are not measured at fair value on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, but require disclosure of their fair values: cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. The carrying value of these financial instruments approximates fair values because of their relatively short maturity.
In the third quarter of 2014, the Company listed its facility in Mundelein, Illinois for sale. This asset was measured at fair value less cost to sell as of September 30, 2014 based on market price and is classified as a Level 2 asset. The book value of this asset on June 30, 2014 was $3.6 million. We expensed $2.2 million during the third quarter of 2014 for this impairment. As of September 30, 2016 we are carrying the asset as held for sale in other current assets on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet at a value of $1.4 million.
The Company also has contingent consideration associated with earn-outs from acquisitions. Contingent consideration liabilities are classified as Level 3 liabilities, as the Company uses unobservable inputs to value them, which is a probability-based income approach. Contingent considerations are classified as accrued liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheet. Subsequent changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities are recorded within the Company's income statement as an operating expense.

The significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of contingent consideration related to the acquisitions are annualized revenue forecasts developed by the Company’s management and the probability of achievement of those revenue forecasts. Significant increases (decreases) in these unobservable inputs in isolation would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement.
The Company's Level 2 securities are valued using third-party pricing sources. The pricing services utilize industry standard valuation models, including both income and market-based approaches, for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly, to estimate fair value. These inputs include reported trades of and broker/dealer quotes on the same or similar securities, issuer credit spread, benchmark securities, prepayment/default projections based on historical data and other observable inputs. The Company validates the prices provided by its third-party pricing services by understanding the models used, obtaining market values from other pricing sources, analyzing pricing data in certain instances and confirming those securities traded in active markets. See Note 4 to these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further information regarding the Company's financials instruments.

ITEM 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Overview
The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) supplements the MD&A in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 of Natus Medical Incorporated. MD&A should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes, the risk factors referred to in Part II, Item 1A of this report, our Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and the cautionary information regarding forward-looking statements at the end of this section.
Our Business
Natus is a leading provider of healthcare products used for the screening, detection, treatment, monitoring, and tracking of common medical ailments in newborn care, hearing impairment, neurological dysfunction, epilepsy, sleep disorders, and balance and mobility disorders.
We have completed a number of acquisitions since 2003, consisting of either the purchase of a company, substantially all of the assets of a company, or individual products or product lines. In 2015 and 2016, we completed acquisitions of NicView, GND, Monarch, NeuroQuest, and RetCam. We expect to continue to pursue opportunities to acquire other businesses in the future. In September 2016, we entered into a definitive Purchase Agreement with GN Store Nord A/S ("GN") for our purchase from GN of its GN Otometrics ("Otometrics") business in an all cash transaction for $145 million. It is expected that this purchase will be completed in January 2017.

Our end-user customer base includes hospitals, clinics, laboratories, physicians, nurses, audiologists, and governmental agencies. Most of our international sales are to distributors, who in turn resell our products to end users or sub-distributors.
Information regarding our sales and long-lived assets in the U.S. and in countries outside the U.S. is contained in Note 15 – Segment, Customer and Geographic Information of our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report and is incorporated in this section by reference.
Revenue by Product Category
We generate our revenue from sales of Devices and Systems, which are generally non-recurring, and from related Supplies and Services, which are generally recurring. The products that are attributable to these categories are described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. Revenue from Devices and Systems, Supplies, and Services, as a percent of total revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, is as follows:

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, no single customer or foreign country contributed to more than 10% of revenue.
2016 Third Quarter Overview
Our business and operating results are driven in part by worldwide economic conditions. Our sales are significantly dependent on both capital spending by hospitals in the United States and healthcare spending by ministries of health outside the United States.
Our consolidated revenue decreased $3.7 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 to $90.9 million compared to $94.6 million in the third quarter of the previous year. Our revenue decrease was driven by a decline in sales in domestic and international markets for Neurology Devices and Systems and voluntary product shipping holds for certain of our Newborn Care Devices and Systems, partially offset by growth in services businesses in both the Neurology and Newborn Care units.
Net income was $13.3 million or $0.40 per diluted share in the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared with net income of $10.9 million or $0.33 per diluted share in the same period in 2015. The increase in net income was a result of lower income taxes and an adjustment for the GND earn-out recorded in marketing and selling expenses, offset by higher G&A expenses.
Application of Critical Accounting Policies
We prepare our financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In so doing, we must often make estimates and use assumptions that can be subjective, and, consequently, our actual results could differ from those estimates. For any given individual estimate or assumption we make, there may also be other estimates or assumptions that are reasonable.
We believe that the following critical accounting policies require the use of significant estimates, assumptions, and judgments:

Inventory carried at the lower of cost or market value
Carrying value of intangible assets and goodwill
Liability for product warranties
Share-based compensation
The use of different estimates, assumptions, or judgments could have a material effect on the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses, and related disclosures as of the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. These critical accounting policies are described in more detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, under Item 7, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, Neurology revenue decreased by 4% compared to the same quarter last year. Declines in both our domestic market due to timing of orders and international markets due to ongoing weakness of European and Canadian markets was partially offset by growth in our Services business. Revenues from sales of Neurology Devices and Systems decreased by 7%, driven mainly by timing of orders in the domestic market and continued weakness in the international markets. Revenue from Supplies decreased by 6%, mainly due to decreased revenue in our domestic market. The growth in Services revenue is primarily the result of our January 2015 acquisition of Global Neuro-Diagnostics, our November 2015 acquisition of Monarch Diagnostics and our March 2016 acquisition of NeuroQuest.
For the three months ended September 30, 2016, Newborn Care revenue decreased by 3% compared to the same quarter last year. Geographically, the decrease was primarily in our international markets due to non-recurring tenders received last year in Latin America and registration delays in the Asia Pacific region. Revenue from Newborn Care Devices and Systems decreased by 8% compared to the same period last year. The decrease was primarily in hearing and balance & mobility, offset by increases in services, video streaming and vision products. We believe the decrease in Newborn Care Devices and Systems revenue is due in part to certain voluntary product shipping holds, non-recurring tenders received last year in Latin America, registration delays in the Asia Pacific region, and some cannibalization of hearing products due to the growth of Peloton, our hearing screening service. The decrease in Newborn Care Devices and Systems was partially offset by the growth in sales of our video streaming product, NicView, and the vision products resulting from the July 2016 RetCam acquisition. Revenue from RetCam contributed $3.2 million to Devices and Systems revenue and $0.2 million to Services revenue. Revenue from Supplies decreased by 6% compared to the same period last year. This decrease is mainly due to cannibalization from increased Peloton service revenue since Peloton provides the equipment and hearing screening supplies as part of the service. Revenue from Services increased 22% compared to the same period last year. This increase was due to the growth of Peloton.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, Neurology revenue was flat compared to the same period last year. Growth in our domestic market was offset by a decline in revenue from international markets, due mainly to ongoing weakness of European and Canadian markets. Revenues from sales of Neurology Devices and Systems decreased by 1%, driven mainly by declines in international revenue, partially offset by growth in our domestic market. Revenue from Supplies decreased by 2%, mainly due to decreased revenue in our domestic market. The growth in Services revenue is the result of our acquisitions of Global Neuro-Diagnostics, Monarch Diagnostics, and NeuroQuest.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, Newborn Care revenue decreased by 2% compared to the same period last year. Geographically, the decrease was in both our domestic and international markets primarily due to voluntary product shipping holds, non-recurring tenders received last year in Latin America, and registration delays in the Asia Pacific region. Revenue from Devices and Systems decreased by 14% compared to the same period last year. The decrease was experienced across most devices, although we experienced an increase in our video streaming and phototherapy products due to the temporary release of our voluntary shipping hold in the second quarter of 2016, and from vision products resulting from the RetCam acquisition. We believe the decrease in Newborn Care Devices and Systems is due in part to our voluntary shipping holds, international non-recurring tenders received last year, registration delays, and some cannibalization due to the growth of Peloton services. Revenue from Supplies decreased by 4% compared to the same period last year. This decrease is mainly due to cannibalization from increased Peloton service revenue. Revenue from Services increased 62% compared to the same period last year. This increase was due to the growth of Peloton and the growth of our Neometrics Data Management services which provides Hearing Screening Coordination and Reporting to the State of California.
No single customer or foreign country accounted for more than 10% of our revenue in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 or September 30, 2015. Revenue from domestic sales was relatively flat and decreased to $62.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $62.6 million in the three months ended September 30, 2015. Revenue from international sales decreased 11% to $28.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $32.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. We believe the decrease in international revenue was driven by weak international economies.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased 2.2% and 0.5%, respectively, compared to the same periods in the prior year. This increase in gross profit as a percentage of revenue was mainly attributable to the increase in higher margin domestic revenue as a percent of total revenue for Neurology and Newborn Care as compared to the same periods last year.

Marketing and Selling
Marketing and selling expenses decreased in both an absolute sense and as a percentage of revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same periods in 2015. This was primarily due to a $2.8 million adjustment in the estimated GND earn-out decreasing overall expenses from the same period last year.
Research and Development
Research and development expenses decreased during the three months ended September 30, 2016 and increased during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same periods in 2015. The increase during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 relates to new hires and engagement of more consultants as well as the RetCam acquisition.
General and Administrative
General and administrative expense increased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the same periods in 2015. This increase is attributable to the RetCam and NeuroQuest acquisitions, growth in GND as well as overall higher salaries, travel expenses and bank fees.
Intangibles Amortization
Intangibles amortization increased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the same periods in 2015. The increase was due to the acquisition of NeuroQuest and RetCam and to assigning finite lives to our trade names beginning in the second quarter of 2015. At that time we initiated a strategy to increase the brand strength of Natus by replacing acquired product trade names with Natus branded products over time. The implementation of this strategy places definite expected future lives on our acquired trade names which previously had indefinite lives. We assigned these trade names lives of seven years based on the timeline of our branding strategy. We will continue to assess the lives of these assets based on the timing and execution of this strategy. Amortization expense for trade names is recorded as a component of operating expense.
Restructuring
Restructuring expenses increased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same periods in 2015. The increase was due to facility abandonment costs for offices located in Munich, Germany and Austin, Texas compared to the same periods in the prior year.
Other Income (Expense), net
Other income (expense), net consists of investment income, interest expense, net currency exchange gains and losses, and other miscellaneous income and expense. For the three months ended September 30, 2016 we reported

-22-

Table of Contents

$0.9 million of other expense compared to other income of $0.0 million for the same period in 2015. This increase in expense was attributable to net currency exchange fluctuations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 we reported other expense of $0.4 million compared to other expense of $1.2 million for the same period in 2015. This decrease in expense was attributable to an increase in net currency exchange gains.
Provision for Income Tax
We recorded provisions for income tax of $1.0 million and $7.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 7.2% and 19.0% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. We recorded provisions for income tax of $5.2 million and $12.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 32.0% and 30.4% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.
Our effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 differed from the federal statutory tax rate primarily because of profits in foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates than the federal statutory rate. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared with the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 is primarily attributable to shifts in the geographical mix of income whereby the income subject to income taxes recorded in high tax jurisdictions significantly decreased, and the income subject to income taxes recorded in low tax jurisdictions significantly increased.
Our year-to-date results reflect the projected fiscal year 2016 effective tax rate as adjusted for the impact of any quarterly discrete events. The impact of the discrete items recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2016 decreased the quarterly tax rate by 11.8%. The tax impacts from material discrete items include the adoption of ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, tax true-ups adjustments relating to the filing of 2015 tax returns and adjustment of certain earn-out liabilities. The impacts from adoption of ASU 2016-09 decreased our quarterly effective tax rate by 3.8%; the tax true-ups adjustment recorded in this quarter related to the filing of 2015 tax returns increased our quarterly tax rate by 1.5% and the accounting income recognized in the adjustment of earn-out liabilities, which is not subject to income taxes, decreased our quarterly effective tax rate by 7.5%. The impact of the discrete items recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2015 decreased the quarterly tax rate by 0.1%. Excluding the impact of discrete items, the decrease in our quarterly effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared with the three months ended September 30, 2015, is primarily attributable to forecasted shifts in the geographical mix of income.
We recorded $0.3 million net tax expense of unrecognized tax benefits for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Within the next twelve months, it is possible our uncertain tax benefit may change within a range of approximately zero to $1.0 million. Our tax returns remain open to examinations as follows: U.S. Federal, 2013 through 2015, U.S. States 2011 through 2015 and significant foreign jurisdictions 2013 through 2015.

We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents and any cash generated from operations will be sufficient to meet our ongoing operating requirements for the foreseeable future.
As of September 30, 2016, we had cash and cash equivalents outside the U.S. in certain of our foreign subsidiaries of $63.3 million. We intend to permanently reinvest the cash held by our foreign subsidiaries. If, however, a portion of these funds were needed for and distributed to our operations in the United States, we would be subject to additional U.S. income taxes and foreign withholding taxes. The amount of taxes due would depend on the amount and manner of repatriation, as well as the country from which the funds were repatriated.
On September 23, 2016, we entered into a Credit Agreement with JP Morgan Chase Bank ("JP Morgan") and Citibank, NA (“Citibank”). The Credit Agreement provides for an aggregate $150.0 million of secured revolving credit facility. The Credit Agreement contains covenants, including covenants relating to maintenance of books and records, financial reporting and notification, compliance with laws, maintenance of properties and insurance, and limitations on guaranties, investments, issuance of debt, lease obligations and capital expenditures. The Credit Agreement provides for events of default, including failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to perform or observe covenants, bankruptcy or insolvency events and the occurrence of a material adverse effect. The Company has no other significant credit facilities. As of September 30, 2016 we had nothing outstanding under the Credit Facility.
In September 2016 we entered into a definitive Purchase Agreement with GN to purchase its Otometrics business in an all cash transaction for $145 million. It is expected that this purchase will be completed in January 2017. We intend to finance this purchase with cash on hand and borrowings under the new revolving credit facility.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016 cash provided by operating activities of $68.5 million was the result of $32.4 million of net income, non-cash adjustments to net income of $24.0 million, and net cash inflows of $12.2 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities. The change in operating assets and liabilities was driven primarily by a decrease in accounts receivable following increased collections efforts, an increase in deferred revenue following receipt of payment from the Ministry of Health of Venezuela, and an increase in prepaids related to prepayments made to our Venezuelan distribution partner. Cash used in investing activities during the period was $43.7 million and consisted primarily of purchases of short-term investments of $34.9 million, as well as cash used in the acquisitions of RetCam of $9.7 million and NeuroQuest of $4.6 million, in each case net of cash acquired. Cash used to acquire other property and equipment was $2.2 million. Cash used in financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $21.5 million and consisted of $18.3 million for repurchases of common stock under our share repurchase program, $3.9 million for taxes paid related to net share settlement of equity awards, and $1.3 million for a contingent consideration payment to NicView, which we acquired in 2015, offset by proceeds from stock option exercises of $2.6 million. Under the prior credit facility that was terminated in connection with our entry into the new Credit Agreement, the Company borrowed and repaid a total of $16.0 million as of September 30, 2016.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2015 cash provided by operating activities of $34.9 million was the result of $29.4 million of net income, non-cash adjustments to net income of $17.1 million, and net cash outflows of $11.6 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities. Cash used in investing activities during the period was $15.7 million, and consisted of cash used to acquire GND of $11.4 million and cash used to acquire other property and equipment of $3.0 million. Cash used in financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $2.9 million and consisted primarily of proceeds from stock options exercises and Employee Stock Purchase Program purchases and their related tax benefits of $11.4 million, offset by $9.4 million

for repurchases of common stock under our share repurchase program, and $4.3 million for taxes paid related to net share settlement of equity awards.
Our future liquidity and capital requirements will depend on numerous factors, including the:
 
Extent to which we make acquisitions;
Amount and timing of revenue;
Extent to which our existing and new products gain market acceptance;
Cost and timing of product development efforts and the success of these development efforts;
Cost and timing of marketing and selling activities; and
Availability of borrowings under line of credit arrangements and the availability of other means of financing.
Commitments and Contingencies
In the normal course of business we enter into obligations and commitments that require future contractual payments. The commitments result primarily from firm, non-cancellable purchase orders placed with contract vendors that manufacture some of the components used in our medical devices and related disposable supply products, as well as commitments for leased office, manufacturing, and warehouse facilities.
There are no material changes to the table of contractual obligations presented in Item 7, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Under our bylaws, we have agreed to indemnify our officers and directors for certain events or occurrences arising as a result of the officer or director serving in such capacity. We have a directors and officers’ liability insurance policy that limits our exposure and enables us to recover a portion of any future amounts paid resulting from the indemnification of our officers and directors. In addition, we enter into indemnification agreements with other parties in the ordinary course of business. In some cases we have obtained liability insurance providing coverage that limits our exposure for these other indemnified matters. We have not incurred material costs to defend lawsuits or settle claims related to these indemnification agreements. We believe the estimated fair value of these indemnification agreements is minimal and have not recorded a liability for these agreements. During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we had no other off-balance sheet arrangements that had, or are reasonably likely to have, a material effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations, or liquidity.

the following: our expectation regarding expansion of our international operations, our expectations regarding our new products, the sufficiency of our current cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investment balances, and any cash generated from operations to meet our ongoing operating and capital requirements for the foreseeable future, the use of debt to fund acquisitions, our expectations of earn-out arrangements related to acquisitions, and our intent to acquire additional technologies, products, or businesses.
Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results predicted in the forward-looking statements as well as our future financial condition and results of operations to differ materially from our historical results or currently anticipated results. Investors should carefully review the information contained under the caption “Risk Factors” contained in Part II, Item 1A of this report for a description of risks and uncertainties. All forward-looking statements are based on information available to us on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements.

ITEM 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
Our exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates relates primarily to our investment portfolio. We place our investments with highly rated credit issuers and limit the amount of credit exposure to any one issuer. We also seek to improve the safety and likelihood of preservation of our invested funds by limiting default risk and market risk. We mitigate default risk by investing in high credit quality securities and by positioning our portfolio to respond appropriately to a significant reduction in a credit rating of any investment issuer or guarantor. The portfolio includes only marketable securities with active secondary or resale markets to ensure portfolio liquidity.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, there were no other significant changes to our quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk. Please refer to Part II, Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 for a more complete discussion on the market risks we encounter.

ITEM 4.    Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, “disclosure controls and procedures” are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud due to inherent limitations of internal controls. Because of such limitations, there is a risk that material misstatements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by internal control over financial reporting. However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process. Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk.
Our management, with the participation of our chief executive officer and our chief financial officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at a reasonable assurance level as of September 30, 2016.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the third quarter of 2016, which were identified in connection with management's evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rules 13a-15
