AUDUBON, Pa., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globus Medical, Inc. (GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

  • Worldwide sales were $190.6 million, an increase of 4.2% as reported

  • First quarter net income was $25.9 million

  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.25 and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.29

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 26.5% of sales

“The COVID-19 pandemic presents one of the greatest healthcare challenges we have faced in recent history. We remain diligent in our commitment to protect the health of our people, support our surgeons and patients in need, and keep our company strong,” said Dave Demski, President and CEO. As we chart a course through this extraordinary and challenging time together, we have been heartened at every turn by the understanding, cooperation and support from so many people in the Globus Medical community. We are deeply thankful to our employees, their families, surgeons, suppliers and other parties for pulling together under such trying and fluid circumstances. Globus Medical continues to work closely with federal, state and local authorities to ensure alignment with their efforts.

“Our conservative financial philosophy has positioned us well to ride out this difficult time without having to reduce our commitment to any important long-term growth initiatives. We launched three new Spine products in the first quarter, and launched two additional innovative products in April. We are seeing great uptake from several products in our HEDRON line of 3D printed interbody spacers, the most comprehensive portfolio of 3D printed spacers in the industry. During the quarter, we also launched SABLE, our fourth generation expandable MIS TLIF interbody spacer that was met with strong demand and great feedback. We look forward to bringing additional innovation to market in coming quarters as well,” said Demski.

Worldwide sales for the first quarter were $190.6 million, an increase of 4.2% over the first quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 4.4% on a constant currency basis. We estimate the negative sales impact of COVID-19 to be approximately $20 million in the quarter. First quarter sales in the U.S., including robotics, increased by 7.4% compared to the first quarter of 2019. International sales decreased by 9.3% over the first quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 8.3% on a constant currency basis.

First quarter GAAP net income was $25.9 million, a decrease of 21.9% over the same period last year. Diluted EPS for the first quarter was $0.25, as compared to $0.33 for the first quarter 2019. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the first quarter was $0.29, compared to $0.36 in the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 18.9%.

The Company generated net cash provided by operating activities of $42.3 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of $20.0 million in the first quarter, and ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $657.0 million. The Company remains debt free.

2020 Annual Guidance

On April 16, 2020, due to the rapidly evolving environment and continued uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Globus Medical withdrew previously announced full year 2020 guidance. At this time, Globus Medical cannot predict the specific extent, or duration, of the impact of COVID-19 on its financial and operating results.

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, and acquisition related costs/licensing, and net gain from the sale of assets, 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. Net gain from sale of assets represents the gain on sale of assets and the offsetting impact of costs incurred through the sale.

In addition, for the period ended March 31, 2020 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the provision for litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition-related costs/licensing, net gain from the sale of assets, impacts of the U.S. Tax Reform Act and the tax effects of such adjustments. 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, net gain from the sale of assets and the tax effects of such adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. Additionally, for the periods ended March 31, 2020 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.
