AUDUBON, Pa., Feb. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading musculoskeletal implant manufacturer, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

Fourth Quarter:

  • Worldwide sales increased 6.3% as reported to $151.6 million, or an increase of 6.5% on a constant currency basis
  • Fourth quarter net income was $24.3 million, or 16.0% of sales
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $0.25
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS were $0.31
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 37.7% of sales

Full Year 2016:

  • Worldwide sales increased 3.5% as reported to $564.0 million, or an increase of 3.8% on a constant currency basis
  • Net income for the year was $104.3 million, or 18.5% of sales
  • Diluted EPS were $1.08
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS were $1.19
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 37.4% of sales

David Paul, Chairman and CEO said, “Fourth quarter sales were $151.6 million, a year-over-year increase of 6.3%.  Despite our increased spending in support of our pending robotics and trauma launches, our adjusted EBITDA margins was an outstanding 37.7%.  We also delivered EPS of $0.25 and non GAAP EPS of $0.31.

“During the fourth quarter, we continued to make progress with product development, sales force development and integration of Alphatec’s international business.  We also further expanded our in-house manufacturing capacity.  We are proud of our innovation and product development efforts, which resulted in a total of 17 new product launches in 2016.  We have addressed our sales force expansion challenges and are optimistic that we will return to more robust growth rates in the second half of 2017. We also remain confident in our long-term growth prospects and our ability to sustain industry-leading profitability by continuing to execute on our strategy of rapid product introduction, expansion of our U.S. and international sales footprints, and diligent expense control.”

Fourth quarter sales in the U.S. decreased by 2.7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily due to one less selling day in the fourth quarter of 2016.  International sales increased by 109.0% over the fourth quarter of 2015 on an as reported basis and 111.8% on a constant currency basis.

Fourth quarter GAAP net income was $24.3 million, a decrease of 35.4% over the same period last year resulting from the one-time positive net income impact of $7.6 million in 2015 due to the settlement of outstanding litigation.  Diluted EPS for the fourth quarter was $0.25, as compared to $0.39 for the fourth quarter 2015.  Non-GAAP diluted EPS, which removes the impact of this litigation and acquisition related expenses, for the fourth quarter was $0.31, compared to $0.32 in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The company generated net cash provided by operating activities of $51.9 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of $37.7 million in the fourth quarter.  Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities ended the quarter at $350.8 million.  The company remains debt free.

The company plans to request an extension to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 by filing Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The company concluded it is not able to compile all information necessary to complete its Form 10-K by March 1, 2017 without unreasonable effort or expense.  The company anticipates filing its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 within the extension period.

2017 Annual Guidance
The company projects 2017 full year sales of $625 million and and non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share of $1.27.

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, provisions for litigation, technology in-licensing fee, and acquisition related costs, 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.

In addition, for the period ended December 31, 2016 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which represents net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the provision for litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, prior period adjustment and the tax effects of such adjustments.  Prior period adjustments represent the cumulative impact of prior year adjustments related to depreciation, scrap and provision for excess and obsolete inventory, none of which were individually material to the related year’s financial position or results of operations.  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, prior period adjustments and the tax effects of such adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends.  Additionally, for the periods ended December 31, 2016 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 sales growth is calculated by translating current year sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period.  We believe constant currency sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period 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 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 sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.  Additionally, we have recast prior periods for non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share.
