"During 2021, we made significant progress on our strategy to deliver multiple vectors of growth, despite challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic," said Chris Barry, chief executive officer of NuVasive. "Our results reflect the organization's continued evolution from the pioneer of lateral spine surgery to a Company with leading procedural innovation across the spine continuum and increasing global scale. Through our focus on consistent execution and a commitment to increase shareholder value, our investments have built a technology pipeline which sets the stage for durable growth in 2022—and for years to come."

Fourth Quarter 2021 Results

NuVasive reported fourth quarter 2021 total net sales of $302.1 million, a 3.5% increase as reported and a 4.5% increase on a constant currency basis, compared to $291.8 million in the prior year period. Fourth quarter 2021 total net sales were driven by new product introductions, particularly the Pulse platform and the C360 portfolio featuring the NuVasive Simplify Cervical Disc in the U.S., and continued strong international performance. The Company's fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and healthcare staffing shortages.

For the fourth quarter of 2021, GAAP gross profit was $218.5 million and $219.1 million on a non-GAAP basis, compared to GAAP gross profit of $207.2 million and $208.9 million on a non-GAAP basis in the prior year period. GAAP gross margin was 72.3% and 72.5% on a non-GAAP basis, compared to GAAP gross margin of 71.0% and 71.6% on a non-GAAP basis in the prior year period.

The Company reported GAAP net loss of $36.7 million, or diluted loss per share of ($0.71), compared to GAAP net income of $1.7 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.03 in the prior year period. During the fourth quarter, the Company recorded a charge of $46.6 million dollars associated with an increase in the contingent consideration liabilities for the Simplify Medical acquisition. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $20.7 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.40, compared to non-GAAP net income of $30.4 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.59 in the prior year period.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments were $246.1 million as of December 31, 2021.

Full Year 2021 Results

The Company reported full year 2021 net sales of $1.139 billion, an 8.4% increase as reported and an 8.1% increase on a constant currency basis, compared to $1.051 billion in the prior year. Total 2021 net sales were driven by new product introductions, particularly the Pulse platform and the C360 portfolio featuring the NuVasive Simplify Cervical Disc in the U.S., and continued strong international performance. Full year results were negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, healthcare staffing shortages, and NuVasive Specialized Orthopedics product availability.

For the full year 2021, GAAP gross profit was $816.7 million and $832.8 million on a non-GAAP basis, compared to GAAP gross profit of $729.0 million and $730.7 million on a non-GAAP basis in the prior year. GAAP gross margin was 71.7% and 73.1% on a non-GAAP basis, compared to GAAP gross margin of 69.4% and 69.5% on a non-GAAP basis in the prior year.

The Company reported GAAP net loss of $64.1 million, or diluted loss per share of ($1.24), compared to GAAP net loss of $37.2 million, or diluted loss per share of ($0.72) in the prior year. The GAAP net loss was primarily driven by the increase in contingent consideration liabilities for the Simplify Medical acquisition, as well as inventory charges associated with certain Precice stainless steel products manufactured by NuVasive Specialized Orthopedics that were withdrawn from the market. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $87.8 million, or diluted earnings per share of $1.68, compared to non-GAAP net income of $63.8 million, or diluted earnings per share of $1.23 in the prior year.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Information

Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures such as non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude amortization of intangible assets, business transition costs, purchased in-process research and development, one-time restructuring charges, non-cash purchase accounting adjustments, inventory charges associated with product withdrawals, certain foreign currency impacts and related items in connection with acquisitions, investments and divestitures, certain litigation expenses and settlements, certain European medical device regulation costs, gains and losses from strategic investments, gains and losses from changes in fair value of derivatives, non-cash interest expense (excluding debt issuance cost) and other significant one-time items. Management also uses certain non-GAAP measures which are intended to exclude the impact of foreign exchange currency fluctuations. The measure constant currency utilizes an exchange rate that eliminates fluctuations when calculating financial performance numbers. The Company also uses measures such as free cash flow, which represents cash flow from operations less cash used in the acquisition and disposition of capital. Additionally, the Company uses an adjusted EBITDA measure which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excludes the impact of stock-based compensation, business transition costs, purchased in-process research and development, one-time restructuring charges, non-cash purchase accounting adjustments, inventory charges associated with product withdrawals, certain foreign currency impacts and related items in connection with acquisitions, investments and divestitures, certain litigation expenses and settlements, certain European medical device regulation costs, gains and losses on strategic investments, gains and losses from changes in fair value of derivatives and other significant one-time items.

Management calculates the non-GAAP financial measures provided in this earnings release excluding these costs and uses these non-GAAP financial measures to enable it to further and more consistently analyze the period-to-period financial performance of its core business operations. Management believes that providing investors with these non-GAAP measures gives them additional information to enable them to assess, in the same way management assesses, the Company's current and future continuing operations. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Set forth below in the financial tables accompanying this press release are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
