Globus Medical Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading spinal implant manufacturer, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
  • Sales were $96.0 million, an 18.6% increase from the second quarter of 2011
  • Net income increased 19.4% to $19.0 million, or $0.21 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was 36.1% of sales, comparable with last year

David Paul, Chairman and CEO commented, “I am extremely pleased with our second quarter results. We continue to grow well in excess of the industry averages by introducing better solutions for our customers and patients. In addition, we have maintained our focus on efficient operations and healthy cash flow.”

Second quarter net sales were $96.0 million, compared to $80.9 million last year, representing an 18.6% increase. Increased sales were primarily driven by growth from key disruptive products, including our minimally invasive surgical (MIS) and lateral platform products. International sales grew 38.2% over the same quarter in 2011 and currently represent 7.7% of total sales.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were $41.2 million in the quarter, or 43.0% of sales, up slightly from 41.7% last year. The increase in SG&A is attributable primarily to increased investment in headcount associated with the Company's Algea Therapies interventional pain management division.

Net Income for the quarter was $19.0 million or $0.21 per diluted share, as compared to $15.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted share in 2011. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was 36.1% of net sales, compared to 35.9% last year.

Cash and cash equivalents for the quarter increased by $6.5 million, to end the first half of 2012 at $165.6 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes Adjusted EBITDA, a “non-GAAP financial measure”, as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest (income)/expense, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration in connection with business acquisitions and provision for litigation settlements. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is a useful indicator of our operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to ours. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period and among companies 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 (primarily interest expense), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of our management (primarily income taxes and interest income and expense). Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of our liquidity or operating performance prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and is not indicative of net income (loss) from operations as determined under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures have limitations that should be considered before using these measures to evaluate our liquidity or financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not include certain expenses that may be necessary to review our operating results and liquidity requirements. Our definition and calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from that of other companies.
