DENTSPLY International Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results



  * Earnings per diluted share of $0.60 on a US GAAP reported basis and a record
    $0.66 on an adjusted basis
  * Adjusted  operating margin  expanded 60 basis  points to 19.2% from 18.6% in
    the prior year

York,  PA -  August 1, 2013 -  DENTSPLY International  Inc. (NASDAQ: XRAY) today
announced sales and earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Net  sales in the second quarter of 2013 were essentially flat at $761.0 million
compared  to $763.0 million in the second quarter of 2012.  Net sales, excluding
precious  metals  content,  in  the  second  quarter  of  2013 of $716.0 million
increased  2.5% from  $698.5  million  in  the second quarter of 2012.  Constant
currency  net sales  growth, excluding  precious metals  content, in  the second
quarter  was 2.7%, reflecting strong internal growth in the U.S. and more modest
internal growth in the other geographic regions.

Net  income attributable  to DENTSPLY  International for  the second  quarter of
2013 was  $87.2 million, or $0.60 per  diluted share, compared to $80.8 million,
or $0.56 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012.  On an adjusted basis,
excluding  certain items,  earnings grew  7% to $0.66  per diluted share for the
second  quarter of 2013 from $0.62 in the same period in 2012.  A reconciliation
of  the non-GAAP measure to earnings per share  calculated on a US GAAP basis is
provided in the attached table.

"DENTSPLY  achieved record adjusted earnings for the second quarter driven by an
acceleration  of internal growth in the U.S. and expansion of adjusted operating
margins,"  said Bret Wise,  Chairman and Chief  Executive Officer.  "Although we
are  pleased with our second quarter  performance, market conditions continue to
be  difficult in Europe and movement of currency exchange rates has created some
further  headwind in the second half of the  year.  As a result, we are revising
our expectations for adjusted earnings per share for 2013 to a range of $2.33 to
$2.38."

result of certain risk factors.  These risk factors include, without limitation;
the  continued strength of  dental and medical  markets, the timing, success and

governmental  actions with  respect to  dental and  medical products, outcome of
litigation  and/or governmental  enforcement actions,  continued support  of our

Non-US GAAP Financial Measures

In  addition to  the results  reported in  accordance with  US GAAP, the Company
provides adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International and adjusted
earnings  per diluted common  share.  The Company  discloses adjusted net income
attributable  to  DENTSPLY  International  to  allow  investors  to evaluate the
performance  of the Company's operations exclusive  of certain items that impact
the  comparability of results  from period to  period and certain large non-cash
charges  related to purchased intangible assets.  The Company believes that this
information  is helpful  in understanding  underlying operating  trends and cash
flow generation.  The adjusted net income attributable to DENTSPLY International
consists  of  net  income  attributable  to  DENTSPLY  International adjusted to
exclude the impact of the following:

(1)  Acquisition  related  costs.   These  adjustments  include costs related to
integrating  recently  acquired  businesses  and  specific  costs related to the
consummation  of the acquisition  process.  These costs  are irregular in timing
and  as such may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company
and  are therefore excluded  to allow investors  to better understand underlying
operating trends.

(2)   Restructuring   and  other  costs,  including  legal  settlements.   These
adjustments  include both costs and income  that are irregular in timing, amount
and impact to the Company's financial performance.  As such, these items may not
be  indicative of past and  future performance of the  Company and are therefore
excluded for the purpose of understanding underlying operating trends.

  (3) Amortization of purchased intangible assets.  This adjustment excludes the
periodic amortization expense related to purchased intangible assets.  Following
a  significant acquisition in  2011, the Company began  recording large non-cash
charges  related to the values attributed to purchased intangible assets.  These
charges  have  been  excluded  from  adjusted  net income attributed to DENTSPLY
International  to allow  investors to  evaluate and  understand operating trends
excluding these large non-cash charges.

(4) Income related to credit risk and fair value adjustments.  These adjustments
include  both the cost and  income impacts of adjustments  in certain assets and
liabilities  that are recorded  through net income  which are due  solely to the
changes  in fair value and credit risk.   These items can be variable and driven
more  by market conditions  than the Company's  operating performance.  As such,
these  items may not be indicative of past and future performance of the Company
and therefore are excluded for comparability purposes.

(5)  Certain  fair  value  adjustments  at an unconsolidated affiliated company.
 This  adjustment  represents  the  fair  value adjustment of the unconsolidated
affiliated  company's  convertible  debt  instrument  held  by the Company.  The
affiliate  is accounted  for under  the equity  method of  accounting.  The fair
value  adjustment is  driven by  open market  pricing of  the affiliate's equity
instruments, which has a high degree of variability and may not be indicative of
the operating performance of the affiliate or the Company.

(6)  Income tax related adjustments.  These  adjustments include both income tax
expenses  and  income  tax  benefits  that  are  representative  of  income  tax
adjustments  mostly related to prior periods, as well as the final settlement of
income tax audits.  These adjustments are irregular in timing and amount and may
significantly  impact the Company's operating performance.  As such, these items
may  not  be  indicative  of  past  and  future  performance  of the Company and
therefore are excluded for comparability purposes.

Adjusted  earnings per diluted  common share is  calculated by dividing adjusted
net  income attributable  to DENTSPLY  International by diluted weighted-average
common  shares  outstanding.   Adjusted  net  income  attributable  to  DENTSPLY
International  and  adjusted  earnings  per  diluted common share are considered
measures  not calculated  in accordance  with US  GAAP, and therefore are non-US
GAAP  measures.  These  non-US GAAP  measures may  differ from  other companies.
 Income  tax related  adjustments may  include the  impact to adjust the interim
effective income tax rate to the expected annual effective tax rate.  The non-US
GAAP  financial information should not be considered  in isolation from, or as a
substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with US
GAAP.
