DURHAM, N.C., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bioventus Inc. (Nasdaq: BVS) ("Bioventus" or "the Company"), a global leader in innovations for active healing, today reported financial results for three months ended April 3, 2021. This press release presents historical results, for the periods presented, of Bioventus Inc., including Bioventus LLC, the predecessor of Bioventus Inc. for financial reporting purposes.

First Quarter 2021 Summary:

  • Net Sales of $81.8 million, up $3.1 million, or 4.0%, year-over-year.

  • Net Income of $24.5 million, up $14.0 million, or 133.9%, year-over-year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $11.1 million, down $3.2 million, or 22.3% year-over-year, driven primarily by public company costs and higher selling expenses related to the better than expected sales.

  • Non-GAAP net income* of $35.4 million, up $17.3 million, or 95.3%, year-over-year.

  • Completed acquisition of Bioness, a global leader in neuromodulation and advanced rehabilitation medical devices on March 30, 2021.

  • Raises full year 2021 revenue guidance by $4 million from $394 million to $406 million (up approximately 23% to 26% year-over-year).

_____________________
* See below under “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a definition and reconciliation of this measure.

“Bioventus delivered better-than-expected first quarter revenue results, driven primarily by accelerating U.S. sales growth trends as we moved through the quarter, culminating with nearly 30% year-over-year growth in March,” stated Ken Reali, Chief Executive Officer of Bioventus.

Mr. Reali continued: “We were also pleased to announce an important strategic acquisition at the end of the first quarter and welcome the Bioness organization to our Bioventus team. Bioness is a recognized leader in neuromodulation through its innovative peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) therapy, and advanced rehabilitation medical devices. Our acquisition of Bioness significantly expands our total addressable market as their medical devices currently address a global market opportunity in excess of $8 billion. We view the Bioness acquisition as an attractive strategic addition in multiple ways including being accretive to our long-term growth profile, leveraging our significant customer presence across orthopedics, broadening our portfolio and increasing our global footprint.

"We have updated our revenue guidance for 2021, driven by our results in the first quarter. Our updated guidance reflects total Company revenue growth in the range of 23% to 26% year-over-year, fueled primarily by anticipated strong organic growth* in the range of 13% to 16% year-over-year and contributions from our acquisition of Bioness for the remaining nine months of 2021. We have significantly enhanced our balance sheet and financial condition with the net proceeds raised in our IPO in February and believe we are well positioned to execute our strategy to accelerate our multi-year growth profile with continued progress in our clinical, product development and new product pipeline and our pursuit of in-organic business development opportunities.”

Presentation, Initial Public Offering & Acquisition:

  • This press release presents historical results, for the periods presented, of Bioventus Inc., including Bioventus LLC, the predecessor of Bioventus Inc. for financial reporting purposes.

  • On February 16, 2021, the Company successfully closed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of common stock at a price to the public of $13.00 per share. The Company issued 9,200,000 shares of Class A common stock, which included 1,200,000 shares sold to the underwriters pursuant to their over-allotment option, and received net proceeds of approximately $111.2 million, after underwriter discounts and commissions.

  • Accordingly, historical results do not purport to reflect what the results of operations of Bioventus Inc. would have been had the IPO and related transactions occurred prior to such periods. For example, these historical results do not reflect the attribution of net income to non-controlling interest or the provision for corporate income taxes on the income attributable to Bioventus Inc. that the Company expects to recognize in future periods.

  • On March 30, 2021, the Company announced the acquisition of Bioness, a global leader in neuromodulation and rehabilitation medical devices through its innovative peripheral nerve stimulation (“PNS”) therapy and premium rehabilitation solutions, for $45 million in up-front consideration, with up to $65 million of contingent consideration related to the achievement of certain key milestones. The acquisition includes the entire portfolio of Bioness products as well as its research and development pipeline. Under the merger agreement, Bioness has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bioventus, and all Bioness employees have become employees of Bioventus. The up-front consideration is being funded exclusively through the use of cash on hand.

Net sales of $81.8 million compared to $78.6 million for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $3.1 million, or 4.0%, year-over-year.

International net sales for the first quarter of 2021 increased 2.5% year-over-year on a constant currency basis.

The increase in net sales, by vertical, was driven by an increase of $4.5 million, or 32.6%, year-over-year, in Bone Graft Substitute sales and by an increase of $0.2 million, or 0.6%, year-over-year, in Pain Treatment and Joint Preservation sales, partially offset by a decrease of $1.6 million, or 7.0%, year-over-year, in Restorative Therapies sales.

Gross profit was $59.6 million, or 72.8% of net sales, compared to $57.2 million, or 72.8% of net sales, for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $2.3 million, or 4.1%, year-over-year. Non-GAAP gross profit*2 was $64.8 million, or 79.2% of net sales, compared to $62.5 million, or 79.5% of net sales, for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $2.2 million, or 3.6%, year-over-year.

Gross profit increased primarily due to the increase in net sales. Gross margin remained consistent with the prior year comparable period.

Operating income was $22.0 million, compared to $13.0 million for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $9.0 million, or 69.4%, year-over-year.

Total other income was $2.5 million, compared to total other expense of $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2020, a change of $4.9 million, or 199.7%, year-over-year, primarily due to the settlement of the equity participation right (EPR), repaid in conjunction with the IPO related transactions. Income tax impact was nominal in the first quarter of 2020 and 2021.

Net Income was $24.5 million, compared to $10.5 million, for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $14.0 million, or 133.9%, year-over-year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net Sales and International Net Sales Growth on a Constant Currency Basis

Net Sales and International Net Sales Growth on a Constant Currency Basis is a non-GAAP measure, which is calculated by translating current and prior year results at the same foreign currency exchange rate. Constant currency can be presented for numerous GAAP measures, but is most commonly used by management to facilitate the comparison sales in foreign currencies to prior periods and analyze net sales performance without the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Organic Revenue Growth

The Company defines the term “organic revenue” as revenue in the stated period excluding the impact from business acquisitions and divestitures. The Company uses the related term “organic revenue growth” to refer to the financial performance metric of comparing the stated period organic revenue with the reported revenue of the corresponding period in the prior year. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with our GAAP financial measures, allows the Company and its investors to better measure the Company’s performance and evaluate long-term performance trends. Organic revenue growth also facilitates easier comparisons of the Company’s performance with prior and future periods and relative comparisons to its peers. The Company excludes the effect of acquisitions and divestitures because these activities can have a significant impact on the Company's reported results, which the Company believes makes comparisons of long-term performance trends difficult for management and investors.

We present Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Expense, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income, and Non-GAAP Earnings per share of Class A Common Stock, all non-GAAP financial measures, to supplement our financial reporting, because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization, provision of income taxes and interest expense, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include equity compensation, succession and transition charges, restructuring costs, foreign currency impact, acquisitions, equity loss in unconsolidated investments and other non-recurring costs. See the table below for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use it in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to ours. Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections.

Our management uses Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Expense, Non-GAAP Operating Margin and Non-GAAP Net Income principally as measures of our operating performance and believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to better understand the long term recurring performance of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results to those of peer companies. Our management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections.

We define Non-GAAP Gross Profit as gross profit, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold. We define Non-GAAP Gross Margin as the calculated ratio of Non-GAAP Gross Profit to net sales. See the table below for a reconciliation of gross profit and gross margin to Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Gross Margin.

We define Non-GAAP Operating Income as operating income, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization in operating expenses, succession and transition charges and other non-recurring costs. Non-GAAP Operating Margin is defined as defined as Non-GAAP Operating Income divided by net sales. See the table below for a reconciliation of Operating Income and operating margin to Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin.

We define Non-GAAP Operating Expense as operating expenses, adjusted to exclude certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include amortization in operating expenses, succession and transition charges and other non-recurring costs. See the table below for a reconciliation of Operating Expenses to Non-GAAP Operating Expenses.

We define Non-GAAP Net Income as Net Income, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization in operating expenses, succession and transition charges, restructuring costs and other non-recurring costs. See the table below for a reconciliation of Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income.

We define Non-GAAP Earnings per Class A share as Earnings per Class A share, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization in operating expenses, succession and transition charges, restructuring costs and other non-recurring costs, divided by weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding during the period. See the table below for a reconciliation of loss per Class A share to Non-GAAP Earnings per Class A share.
