Item 2.02

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On February 13, 2019, CryoLife, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its preliminary financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2018 (the “Prior Press Release”). After the date of the Prior Press Release and as we were finalizing our procedures prior to the filing of the Company’s Form 10-K, we determined that an adjustment to the GAAP tax expense (benefit) and GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 previously reported in the Prior Press Release was necessary, resulting in an increase in GAAP net income per share of $0.03 and $0.02, respectively for the three months and year-ended December 31, 2018, relative to the GAAP net income per share for the same periods reported in the Prior Press Release. Non-GAAP earnings per share and all other previously reported amounts remain as reported. A summary of the adjustment is provided in the schedule below, and the complete financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 are provided in the Company’s Form 10-K, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier today.
