Orthofix Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results
  • Jon Serbousek to succeed Brad Mason as President and Chief Executive Officer on November 1, 2019
  • Net sales of $113.5 million, an increase of 1.6% compared to prior year and 2.5% on a constant currency basis
  • Biologics tissue services fees increased 11.4%, its second consecutive quarter of double-digit growth
  • Company entered into a new revolving credit facility which provides up to $300 million in borrowing capacity
  • Company updates full year 2019 guidance

LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 28, 2019-- Orthofix Medical Inc. (NASDAQ:OFIX) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019. Net sales were $113.5 million, loss per share (“EPS”) was ($2.14) and adjusted EPS was $0.41.

“While we are very pleased with the sales trajectory of the M6 cervical disc in the U.S. and the continued strong performance of Biologics tissue sales, spine leadership vacancies, the delay of several large stocking orders in Extremities and the uncertainty around the CEO transition timing negatively impacted other parts of our business in the third quarter,” said Brad Mason, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The good news is that these issues are temporary and not reflective of the core value proposition at Orthofix and the opportunity for growth and shareholder value creation. Jon Serbousek hit the ground running and is fully engaged and focused on recruiting candidates for the vacant leadership positions. We expect the momentum of the M6-C disc and the experience and value that the new spine leadership team brings will have a positive impact on future performance.”

Gross profit increased $0.9 million to $88.6 million. Gross margin decreased to 78.1% compared to 78.5% in the prior year period.

Based on the initial success observed in our launch of the M6-C artificial cervical disc in the U.S. market, our long-term forecasts of net sales now indicate a greater likelihood of achieving the potential revenue-based milestone payments associated with the Spinal Kinetics acquisition. As such, we recognized expenses during the quarter of $22.3 million associated with the remeasurement of these potential milestone payment liabilities.

Net loss was ($40.5) million, or ($2.14) per share, compared to net loss of ($1.2) million, or ($0.07) per share in the prior year period, primarily driven by the remeasurement of the potential Spinal Kinetics milestone payment liabilities discussed above. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $7.9 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $8.3 million, or $0.44 per share in the prior year period.

EBITDA was ($20.8) million, compared to $3.6 million in the prior year period, largely due to the remeasurement of the potential Spinal Kinetics milestone payment liabilities. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.3 million, or 17.9% of net sales, compared to $21.4 million, or 19.2% of net sales, in the prior year period.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2019, cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $57.5 million compared to $72.2 million as of December 31, 2018. Cash flow from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 decreased $8.7 million to $20.1 million when compared to the prior year period, while free cash flow decreased $12.9 million to $5.2 million.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had no outstanding indebtedness and borrowing capacity of $125 million under its previous credit facility. On October 25, 2019, the Company, and certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amended Credit Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and certain lender parties thereto. The Amended Credit Agreement provides for a $300 million secured revolving credit facility maturing in October 2024.

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.

EBITDA

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by adding interest expense, net; income tax (expense)/benefit; and depreciation and amortization to net income/(loss). EBITDA provides management with additional insight to its results of operations. EBITDA is the primary metric used by our Chief Operating Decision Maker in managing our business.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS

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 September 30, 2019 for a detail of these costs by consolidated statement of income line item; however, certain share-based compensation costs have been included within succession charges for 2019
  • Foreign exchange impact – gains and losses related to foreign currency transactions, which are recorded as other expense, net; guidance presented does not include the impact of any future foreign exchange fluctuations
  • Strategic investments – costs related to our strategic investments, such as due diligence and integration costs, or costs associated with the evaluation and completion of changing the Company’s jurisdiction of organization from Curaçao to the State of Delaware during 2018, which are primarily recorded as general and administrative expenses.

    Amounts previously reported as “Domestication to Delaware” have been reclassified to this line item to conform to current period presentation, resulting in an increase in strategic investments of $1.0 million and $3.7 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018
  • Acquisition-related fair value adjustments – comprised of i) gains and losses related to remeasurement of contingent consideration to fair value, which are recorded as operating expenses and ii) the amortization of an adjustment made to inventory acquired to reflect the expected selling price of the acquired inventory less the cost of expected selling efforts and a reasonable profit allowance for the selling effort for finished goods inventory, which is recorded as cost of sales.

    Also included in this line are adjustments totaling $0.04 and $0.05 per share in the presentation of Adjusted EPS to account for the difference in the weighted average number of shares outstanding for GAAP and Non-GAAP reporting purposes due to our reported net loss position under GAAP and net income position under Non-GAAP for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively, as these charges were the primary driver of our net loss position
  • Amortization of acquired intangibles – amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations or asset acquisitions, including items such as developed technologies, in process research and development, trade names, and other intangible assets, which are recorded as operating expenses
  • Interest and loss on investment securities – net losses recognized within other expense, net, or amortization of historical unrealized gains previously recorded within accumulated other comprehensive income to interest income relating to our investments in eNeura Inc. and Bone Biologics, Inc.
  • Legal judgments/settlements – adverse or favorable legal judgments or negotiated legal settlements, including legal and other professional fees associated with the SEC Investigation, Securities Class Action Complaints and Brazil subsidiary compliance review, which are recorded as general and administrative expenses
  • Succession charges – costs related to the transition of the Company’s named executive officers, including any cessation and onboarding amounts, accelerated share-based compensation expense, consulting services and other related expenses
  • European Union Medical Device Regulation – incremental costs incurred to establish initial compliance with the regulations set forth by the European Union Medical Device Regulation related to our currently-approved medical devices; the new regulations provide a transition period until May 2020 for currently-approved medical devices to meet the additional requirements and for certain devices this transition period can be extended until May 2024; these incremental costs primarily include third-party consulting costs necessary to supplement our internal resources and are recorded as research and development expenses
  • Long-term income tax rate adjustment – reflects management’s expectation of a long-term normalized effective tax rate of 35% for the first and second quarters of 2018, 29% for the third and fourth quarters of 2018, and 27% for our 2019 results and outlook, which is based on current tax law and current expected income; actual reported 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

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.

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 equity 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.
