Audubon, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES


AUDUBON, Pa., Nov. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

  • Worldwide net sales were $254.1 million, an increase of 10.6%, or 12.6% on a constant currency basis
  • GAAP net income for the quarter was $47.4 million
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) was $0.47 and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.50
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $82.8 million, or 32.6% of net sales

“Our third quarter sales grew 12.6% on a constant currency basis, as we continue to make market share gains by providing industry leading innovative solutions in spine care,” commented Dan Scavilla, President and CEO. “Our U.S. Spine business grew an impressive 9.0%, which is evidence of our ability to hold the share gains we’ve made in the past several years, while also continuing to take new share across the U.S. market. International Spine sales increased by 11.1% on an as-reported basis, and 24.8% on a constant currency basis as we continue to increase our brand recognition on the global healthcare stage. Enabling Technologies grew 19.0% to $24.1 million, driven by continued robotic system demand and new interest in our Excelsius3D™ imaging system. Globus Medical remains well positioned to continue providing innovative procedural solutions to help patients with musculoskeletal disorders.”

Worldwide net sales for the third quarter of 2022 were $254.1 million, an as-reported increase of 10.6% over the third quarter of 2021, and an increase of 12.6% on a constant currency basis. U.S. net sales for the third quarter of 2022 increased by 9.5% compared to the third quarter of 2021. International net sales increased by 17.7% over the third quarter of 2021 on an as-reported basis, and an increase of 31.8% on a constant currency basis.

GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $47.4 million, an increase of 0.5% over the same period in the prior year. Diluted EPS for the third quarter was $0.47, compared to $0.45 for the third quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter of 2022 was in line with the same period in the prior year at $0.50, and includes current period non-operating headwinds related to a higher effective tax rate and unfavorable currency fluctuations.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $32.9 million, and non-GAAP free cash flow was $20.9 million for the third quarter of 2022. The Company remains debt free.

2022 Annual Guidance

The Company today reaffirmed its full year 2022 guidance of $1.025 billion in net sales and decreased full year 2022 guidance for non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to $2.03 from $2.10 to account for the impact of unfavorable currency fluctuations and a higher effective tax rate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income before interest income, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, provision for litigation, acquisition related costs/licensing, and acquisition of in-process research and development, is useful as an additional measure of operating performance, and particularly as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period, as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance, and it removes the effect of our capital structure, asset base, income taxes and interest income and expense. Our management also uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. Provision for litigation represents costs incurred for litigation settlements or unfavorable verdicts when the loss is known or considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated, or in the case of a favorable settlement, when income is realized. Acquisition related costs/licensing represents the change in fair value of business-acquisition-related contingent consideration; costs related to integrating recently acquired businesses, including but not limited to costs to exit or convert contractual obligations, severance, and information system conversion; and specific costs related to the consummation of the acquisition process such as banker fees, legal fees, and other acquisition related professional fees, as well as one-time licensing fees. Acquisition of in-process research and development represents the expensing of acquired assets with no alternative future use and related fees.

In addition, for the period ended September 30, 2022 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the provision for litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments. The tax effect adjustment represents the tax effect of the pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments excluded from non-GAAP net income. The tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments is calculated based on the consolidated effective tax rate on a GAAP basis, applied to the non-GAAP adjustments, unless the underlying item has a materially different tax treatment, in which case the estimated tax rate applicable to the adjustment is used. We believe these non-GAAP measures are also useful indicators of our operating performance, and particularly as additional measures of comparative operating performance from period to period as they remove the effects of litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. Additionally, for the period ended September 30, 2022 and for other comparative periods, we also define the non-GAAP measure of free cash flow as the net cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for the impact of restricted cash, less the cash impact of purchases of property and equipment. We believe that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating our overall financial performance for comparative periods as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measure of constant currency net sales growth is calculated by translating current year net sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period. We believe constant currency net sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period net sales, in dollar and percentage terms, excluding the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, free cash flow and constant currency net sales growth are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures do not include certain expenses that may be necessary to evaluate our liquidity or operating results. Our definitions of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, free cash flow and constant currency net sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
