It's worthy to note that we've tracked Biomet and Zimmer revenue throughout the years, and when we publish estimates for 2015 revenue in the next installment of THE ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT, readers will see that revenue for the combined companies will not show a growth increase for 2015. 

This is not a surprise, given merger-related product divestitures, combining some similar product lines, ironing out dissynergies, etc. 

Company leadership has noted sequential quarterly improvement in its U.S. joint recon and S.E.T. businesses. For overall revenue, company leadership voiced an expectation of 1Q16 CC growth at +0.5% to +1%, and full-year 2016 pro forma revenue growth in a range of +1.5% to +2.5% CC.
