Share this story with your network

LEESBURG, Va., March 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — K2M Group Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTWO) (the “Company” or “K2M”), a global leader of complex spine and minimally invasive solutions focused on achieving three-dimensional Total Body BalanceTM, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Summary:

  • Total Q4 revenue of $61.8 million, up 14.0% year-over-year. Total Q4 revenue increased 14.9% year-over-year on a constant currency basis.
  • Domestic Q4 revenue of $47.7 million, up 21.5% year-over-year, comprised of:
    – U.S. Complex Spine growth of 18.0% year-over-year
    – U.S. Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) growth of 37.3% year-over-year
    – U.S. Degenerative growth of 19.3% year-over-year
  • International Q4 revenue of $14.1 million, down approximately 5.8% year-over-year, or 2.8% on a constant currency basis.
  • Net loss of $12.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $8.5 million in the comparable period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $1.3 million in the comparable period last year.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Highlights:

  • On October 6, 2016, the Company announced it had received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to expand its CASCADIA™ Lateral Interbody System featuring Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology™, the Company’s innovative technology that uses 3D printing with the goal of allowing for bony integration throughout the implant. The CASCADIA Lateral Interbody System line extension clearance strengthens K2M’s MIS portfolio and the Company’s leadership in the 3D printing of spinal devices, as evidenced by its having the most comprehensive 3D-printed spinal portfolio available on the market among leading spine companies.
  • On October 26, 2016, the Company announced the U.S. launch of its award-winning CASCADIA Interbody Systems, featuring Lamellar 3D Titanium Technology, during the 31st North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting. K2M presented clinical background on its 3D-printed spinal devices and showcased the Company’s comprehensive CASCADIA product portfolio, which was recognized by Orthopedics This Week with a 2016 Spine Technology Award as one of the best new spine technologies of 2016.

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter-End:

  • On February 15, 2017, the Company introduced Balance ACSTM (or BACSTM), a comprehensive platform that applies three-dimensional solutions across the entire clinical care continuum to help drive quality outcomes for patients undergoing spinal surgery. BACS provides solutions focused on achieving balance of the spine by addressing each anatomical vertebral segment with a 360-degree approach of the axial, coronal and sagittal planes, emphasizing Total Body Balance as a critical component to surgical success.

“We reported constant currency revenue growth of 14.9% year-over-year in the fourth quarter, driven by U.S. constant currency revenue growth of 21.5% year-over-year,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Eric Major. “We delivered approximately 17% growth in the U.S. in calendar year 2016 and we believe this strong performance reflects the Company’s success in executing our strategic plan to introduce differentiated spine technologies and expand our global distribution network. Our U.S. growth reflects the clearest indication yet of the increasing adoption of our innovative products by the spine surgeon community. Outside the U.S., we successfully navigated challenging market disruptions with our distributors in Australia and Japan earlier in 2016, and look forward to building on our improving results during 2017 without the expectation of these headwinds.  We continue to anticipate our ability to grow our U.S. revenue in the mid-teens in 2017 with improved profitability.”

International $14,122 $14,984 $(862) (5.8%) (2.8%)
Total Revenue: $61,791 $54,220   $7,571 14.0% 14.9%

Total revenue for fourth quarter 2016 increased $7.6 million, or 14.0%, to $61.8 million, compared to $54.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Total revenue increased 14.9% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. The increase in revenue was primarily driven by greater sales volume from primarily domestic new surgeon users and newer product offerings, offset by decreases in both international direct and distributor revenue compared to last year.

Revenue in the United States increased $8.4 million, or 21.5% year-over-year, to $47.7 million, and international revenue decreased $0.9 million, or 5.8% year-over-year, to $14.1 million. Fourth quarter 2016 international revenue decreased 2.8% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. Foreign currency exchange impacted fourth quarter international revenue by approximately $0.5 million, representing approximately 302 basis points of international growth year-over-year.

The following table represents domestic revenue by procedure category.

  Increase / Decrease
($,thousands) 2016 2015   $ Change % Change
Complex Spine $17,934 $15,194 $2,740 18.0%

Degenerative 21,677 18,175 3,502 19.3%
U.S Revenue: $47,669 $39,236   $8,433 21.5%

By procedure category, U.S. revenue in the Company’s complex spine, MIS and degenerative categories represented 37.6%, 16.9% and 45.5% of U.S. revenue, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2016.

Gross profit for fourth quarter of 2016 increased 6.7% to $38.4 million, compared to $35.9 million for fourth quarter 2015.  Gross margin was 62.1% for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to 66.3% last year.  After adjusting for a medical device tax recovery of $0.7 million in 2015, Gross margin was 62.1% for the fourth quarter of 2016 as compared to 65.0% in the comparable period last year.  Gross profit includes amortization expense on investments in surgical instruments of $3.6 million, or 5.8% of sales, for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $3.2 million, or 5.9% of sales, for the comparable period last year.

Operating expenses for fourth quarter 2016 increased $4.2 million, or 9.7%, to $47.7 million, compared to $43.5 million for fourth quarter 2015. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by a $2.5 million increase in general and administrative expenses, a $1.2 million increase in sales and marketing expenses and, to a lesser extent, a $0.5 million increase in research and development expenses compared to the comparable period last year.

Loss from operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $9.4 million, compared to a loss from operations of $7.6 million for the comparable period last year. Loss from operations included intangible amortization of $2.6 million for each of the fourth quarters of 2016 and 2015.

Total other expenses for the fourth quarter of 2016 increased $2.3 million to $3.1 million, compared to $0.8 million last year. The increase in other expense, net, was primarily attributable to interest expense incurred on the capital lease obligation related to our headquarters and operations facilities as well as the Convertible Senior Notes issued in August 2016, and an increase of $1.1 million in unrealized losses from foreign currency re-measurement on intercompany payable balances.  Foreign currency losses impacted operating results compared to last year due to changes in the average exchange rates of the U.S. Dollar, Pound Sterling and Euro applied to intercompany balances in both periods.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $12.5 million, or $(0.30) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $8.5 million, or $(0.21) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(Unaudited)
(In Thousands)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of revenue in constant currency, Adjusted Gross Profit, and Adjusted EBITDA.

The Company presents these non-GAAP measures because it believes these measures are useful indicators of the Company’s operating performance.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of the Company’s operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the Company’s industry.  The Company also believes that these measures are useful to its management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.

Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-to-period.  We calculate constant currency by converting the prior-year results using current-year foreign currency exchange rates.

Adjusted Gross Profit represents Gross Profit less amortization expense of surgical instruments and medical device excise tax expense (recovery).  The Company presented Adjusted Gross Profit because it believes it is a useful measure of the Company’s gross profit and operating performance because the measure is not burdened by the timing impact of instrument purchases and related amortization as well as the medical device tax.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, foreign currency transaction loss and a deduction for cash payments made for rent on the capital lease of the Company’s new headquarters and operations facilities, which commenced in October 2016.

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes it is a useful indicator of the Company’s operating performance.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA principally as a measure of the Company’s operating performance and for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s annual operating budget and financial projections.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss as a measure of financial performance or cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and it should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as tax payments, debt service requirements, capital expenditures and certain other cash costs that may recur in the future.  Adjusted EBITDA contains certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect the Company’s cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and cash costs to replace assets being depreciated and amortized.  In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation.  The Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments.  Management compensates for these limitations by primarily relying on its GAAP results in addition to using Adjusted EBITDA supplementally.  The Company’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation.

The following table presents reconciliations of gross profit to adjusted gross profit and net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented.
