Orthofix Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales of $111.5 million, an increase of 2.4% compared to prior year or 1.3% on a constant currency basis
  • Net income from continuing operations was $0.9 million compared to $4.7 million in the prior year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $22.0 million compared to $20.5 million in the prior year period, a 7.4% increase
  • Acquisition of Spinal Kinetics completed
  • Realignment of strategic business units

LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2018-- Orthofix Medical Inc. (previously Orthofix International N.V.) (NASDAQ:OFIX) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018. Net sales were $111.5 million, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.05 and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.42.

“During the second quarter, we made excellent progress on our operating and margin improvement goals despite the impact of unexpected currency headwinds and order timing on topline growth,” commented Brad Mason, Orthofix president and Chief Executive Officer. “Adjusted EBITDA performance in the period demonstrated our progress in driving efficiency to reduce operating expenses and achieve our stated goal of increasing Adjusted EBITDA margin in our organic business by at least 100 basis points this year and in each of the next two years. Operationally, we completed the acquisition and integration of Spinal Kinetics, realigned our business unit structure to help further accelerate long-term growth, positioned the company for the move of our corporate domicile from Curaçao to Delaware, that was completed July 31st, and significantly reduced inventories (excluding Spinal Kinetics) over prior year. We anticipate that these accomplishments will benefit Orthofix for many years to come.”

Corporate Realignment and Domestication to Delaware

In June, the Company realigned its four strategic business units around two pillars, Spine and Extremities. The distribution, branding and leadership of our bone growth therapy, spinal implants, biologics and Spinal Kinetics business units are being combined into one Orthofix Global Spine business to maximize opportunities from the acquisition of Spinal Kinetics and, in the long-term, better leverage the full spine portfolio to achieve both revenue acceleration and cost synergies.

On July 31, subsequent to shareholder approval, the Company’s corporate domicile was moved from Curaçao to Delaware. As a result of this transition, we are reducing our non-GAAP long-term effective tax rate from 35% to 29%, simplifying our operational structure and improving financial flexibility. Additionally, the name of the Company was changed from Orthofix International N.V. to Orthofix Medical Inc.

Net sales   $ 111,547   $ 108,942   2.4 %   1.3 %
                 

Gross margin increased 80 basis points compared to the prior year period primarily driven by continued improvement related to inventory management initiatives, partially offset by the addition of Spinal Kinetics acquisition-related inventory fair value adjustments. Non-GAAP net margin, an internal metric that the Company defines as gross profit less sales and marketing expenses, was $37.2 million compared to $35.3 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales, non-GAAP net margin increased to 33.3% as compared to 32.4% in the prior year period, primarily due to the improvement in gross margin.

Net income from continuing operations was $0.9 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $4.7 million, or $0.26 per share in the prior year period. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $7.9 million, or $0.42 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $7.8 million, or $0.42 per share in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of the Spinal Kinetics operating loss in the period, adjusted net income was $8.5 million, or $0.45 per share, a 7.1% increase over prior year.

EBITDA was $6.8 million, compared to $14.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was $22.0 million, or 19.7% of net sales, for the second quarter, compared to $20.5 million, or 18.8% of net sales, in the prior year period.

Liquidity

As of June 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents were $45.7 million compared to $81.2 million as of December 31, 2017.

Non-GAAP Measures:

Constant Currency

Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure, which is calculated by using foreign currency rates from the comparable, prior-year period, to present net sales at comparable rates. Constant currency can be presented for numerous GAAP measures, but is most commonly used by management to analyze net sales without the impact of changes in foreign currency rates.

Pro-Forma Net Sales

Pro-forma net sales is a non-GAAP measure in fiscal 2017, which reflects what net sales in fiscal 2017 would have been, had the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as amended, as of January 1, 2017, or elected to adopt the standard using the full retrospective transition method.

EBITDA

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by adding interest income (expense), net; income tax expense; and depreciation and amortization to net income from continuing operations. EBITDA provides management with additional insight to its results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EPS from Continuing Operations

These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional insight to its results of operations and are calculated using the following adjustments:

  • Share-based compensation – costs related to our share-based compensation plans, which include stock options, restricted stock awards, performance-based restricted stock awards, market-based restricted stock awards and our stock purchase plan; see the share-based compensation footnote in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 for a detail of these costs by line item of the condensed consolidated statement of operations
  • Foreign exchange impact – gains and losses related to foreign currency transactions, which are recorded as other income (expense); guidance presented does not include the impact of any future foreign exchange fluctuations
  • Strategic investments – costs related to our strategic investments, which are primarily recorded as general and administrative expenses
  • Domestication to Delaware – costs associated with evaluation and completion of changing the Company’s jurisdiction of organization from Curaçao to the State of Delaware, which are recorded as general and administrative expenses
  • Non-cash inventory fair market value adjustments – adjustment made to inventory acquired to account for the reasonable profit allowance for the selling effort on finished goods inventory, which is recorded as cost of sales
  • Amortization of Spinal Kinetics intangible assets or Amortization of intangible assets – amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets including items such as developed technologies, in process research and development, and trade name, which are recorded as operating expenses
  • Contingent consideration fair value adjustments – gains and losses related to remeasurement of the contingent consideration to fair value, which are recorded as other income (expense)
  • Unrealized gain (loss) on investment securities – gains and losses recognized within other income (expense) relating to our investments in eNeura, Inc. and Bone Biologics, Inc.
  • SEC / FCPA matters and related costs – legal and other professional fees associated with the SEC Investigation, Securities Class Action Complaint and Brazil subsidiary compliance review, which are recorded as general and administrative expenses
  • Legal judgments/settlements – adverse or favorable legal judgments or negotiated legal settlements, which are recorded as general and administrative expenses
  • Restructuring–costs related to a planned restructuring, primarily consisting of severance charges and the write-down of certain assets in 2017, which are recorded as operating expenses
  • Long-term income tax rate adjustment – reflects management’s expectation of a long-term normalized effective tax rate of 38% for 2017 results, 35% for the first and second quarters of 2018 and 29% for the third and fourth quarters of 2018, which is based on current tax law, current expected income and the expected impact of changing the Company’s jurisdiction of organization from Curaçao to the State of Delaware; actual tax expense will ultimately be based on GAAP earnings and may differ from the expected long-term normalized effective tax rate due to a variety of factors, including the resolutions of issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, the ability to realize deferred tax assets, and the tax impact of certain reconciling items that are excluded in determining Adjusted Net Income

Non-GAAP Net Margin

Non-GAAP net margin is an internal non-GAAP metric, which we define as gross profit less sales and marketing expense. Non-GAAP net margin is the primary metric used by our Chief Operating Decision Maker in managing our business.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by subtracting capital expenditures from cash flow from operating activities. Free cash flow is an important indicator of how much cash is generated or used by our normal business operations, including capital expenditures. Management uses free cash flow as a measure of progress on its capital efficiency and cash flow initiatives. All periods presented reflect the adoption of ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash, resulting in a decrease in net cash from operating activities of $14.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

Usefulness and Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate performance period-over-period, to analyze the underlying trends in our business, to assess performance relative to competitors and to establish operational goals and forecasts that are used in allocating resources. Management uses these non-GAAP measures as the basis for assessing the ability of the underlying operations to generate cash. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to further its understanding of the performance of our business units.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP measures used in this press release may have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as a replacement for GAAP financial measures. Some of the limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures are that they exclude items that reflect an economic cost and can have a material effect on cash flows. Similarly, certain non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation, do not directly impact cash flows, but are part of total compensation costs accounted for under GAAP.

Compensation for Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We compensate for the limitations of our non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance. The GAAP results provide the ability to understand our performance based on a defined set of criteria. The non-GAAP measures reflect the underlying operating results of our businesses, which we believe is an important measure of our overall performance. We provide a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to our most directly comparable GAAP measures, and encourage investors to review this reconciliation.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

We believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by senior management in its financial and operational decision-making. Management believes it is important to provide investors with the same non-GAAP metrics it uses to supplement information regarding the performance and underlying trends of our business operations in order to facilitate comparisons to its historical operating results and internally evaluate the effectiveness of our operating strategies. Disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures also facilitates comparisons of our underlying operating performance with other companies in the industry that also supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.
