Globus Medical Reports 2013 Third Quarter Results

Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading musculoskeletal implant manufacturer, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.
  • Worldwide sales were $107.2 million, a 13.1% increase from the third quarter of 2012
  • Net income was $20.3 million or $0.22 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was 33.4% of sales

“We are very pleased with our industry leading top line growth and profitability this quarter. Our growth this quarter is again attributable to the increased adoption and success of newer, more disruptive products, which are designed to provide better treatment for the patient, and are safer and easier to use for the surgeon,” commented David Paul, Chairman and CEO. “During the quarter we launched CREO™, our next generation pedicle screw platform, one of the most significant projects in our history. CREO™ offers surgeons significant intraoperative adaptability to tailor the construct to best meet individual patients’ needs in treating complex spinal pathologies.”

Mr. Paul continued, “This quarter, we also continued our trend from the first half of the year in attracting and retaining key sales force talent. Our excellent product development execution and robust sales force expansion have us well positioned to continue to take share in the spine market into 2014 and beyond.”

Third quarter net sales were $107.2 million, compared to $94.8 million last year, representing a 13.1% increase. US and international sales grew by 12.6% and 19.1%, respectively, over the same quarter in 2012. International sales represented 8.5% of worldwide third quarter sales.

Net income for the quarter was $20.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, as compared to $16.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was 33.4% of net sales, compared to 35.1% for the same period last year. The Medical Device Excise Tax, which was not in effect in 2012, reduced Adjusted EBITDA by 1.8% for the third quarter of 2013.

Free cash flow for the quarter was $28.0 million, and cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities for the quarter increased by $32.1 million, ending the third quarter of 2013 at $263.8 million. The company remains debt free.

Revenue and Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share Guidance

The company today reiterated its annual revenue guidance of approximately $432 million. The Company now expects Non-GAAP earnings per share for the full year to be 83 to 85 cents per share of common stock.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, Adjusted EBITDA, which 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 loss/(income) and provision for litigation loss - cost of goods sold, 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 (primarily interest expense), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), 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. In addition, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting a non-GAAP measure of diluted earnings per share, which represents diluted earnings per share before provision for litigation loss/(income) and provision for litigation loss - cost of goods sold, net of the tax effects of such provisions. We believe this non-GAAP measure is also a useful indicator of our operating performance, and particularly as an additional measure of comparative operative performance from period to period as it removes the effects of litigation, and specifically the litigation brought against us by DePuy Synthes Products, LLC, in which a jury verdict was returned in June 2013, which we believe is not reflective of underlying business trends. We also define Free Cash Flow as the net cash flows provided by operating activities, 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 the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share and Free Cash Flow are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP within the meaning of Item 10 of Regulation S-K. 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 Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share and Free Cash Flow may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.

* During the three months ended September 30, 2013, we identified a $5.3 million error in connection with reporting of cash flows for excess tax benefit related to nonqualified stock options and income taxes payable/receivable for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The error resulted in the understatement of net cash provided by financing activities by $5.3 million and the offsetting overstatement of net cash provided by operating activities by $5.3 million. There was no impact to our results of operations, financial position, or overall cash flows for our previously filed quarterly financial statements. Accordingly, the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 included herein has been revised to correct this error.
