ENGLEWOOD, Colo., August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paragon 28, Inc. (NYSE: FNA) ("PARAGON"), a leading medical device company exclusively focused on the foot and ankle orthopedic market, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 and increased its 2022 revenue guidance.

Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue $42.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, representing growth of 19% over the second quarter of 2021.

    • Strengthening of the U.S. dollar reduced second quarter 2022 net revenue growth by 140 basis points as compared to the second quarter of 2021.

    • U.S. revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $36.8 million, representing growth of 19% over the second quarter of 2021. Growth in the quarter was driven primarily by sales force productivity gains resulting from new product launches and continued medical education momentum.

    • International revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was a record $5.7 million, representing growth of 20% over the second quarter of 2021. Strengthening of the U.S. dollar reduced second quarter 2022 international net revenue growth by approximately 10 percentage points as compared to the second quarter of 2021. Growth in the quarter was driven primarily by Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.

  • Gross margin 82.0% for the second quarter 2022 compared to 81.3% for the second quarter of 2021, reflecting lower excess and obsolete inventory expense.

  • Operating expenses $43.9 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $30.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $43.0 million in the first quarter of 2022. The sequential quarterly increase in operating expenses as compared to the first quarter of 2022 was driven by $1.2 million of one-time costs related to the successful second quarter launch of SAP.

  • Net loss $9.6 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to net loss $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2021 and net loss of $9.2 million for the first quarter 2022.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2022 was negative $3.2 million compared to positive $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, and negative $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2022.

"I am very pleased with P28’s second quarter results, including 19% growth in the U.S. and another record quarter in our international business," said Albert DaCosta, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "It was very encouraging to see double-digit second quarter growth in each of the foot and ankle sub-segments, fueled by impressive gains in U.S. sales force productivity, driven by our 19 products launched since 2020 combined with our best-in-class medical education. Our year-to-date revenue growth of 22% demonstrates the strength and resilience of our balanced business model, despite a challenging business environment."

Third Quarter 2022, Fourth Quarter 2022, and Full Year 2022 Revenue Guidance

Updated revenue guidance assumes foreign currency translation rates remain consistent with current foreign currency translation rates.

The Company has increased full year 2022 net revenue to $176 million, representing reported growth of 19% as compared to full year 2021. The strengthened U.S. dollar is expected to reduce full year 2022 net revenue growth as compared to the prior year by approximately 100 basis points.

The Company expects third quarter and fourth quarter 2022 net revenue to be $42.5 million and $49.6 million, respectively, representing growth compared to the prior year periods of approximately 19% and 16%, respectively. The strengthened U.S. dollar is expected to reduce both third quarter and fourth quarter net revenue growth as compared to the prior year periods by approximately 100 basis points.

The foregoing forward-looking statements reflect our expectations as of today's date. Given the number of risk factors, uncertainties and assumptions discussed, actual results may differ materially.

Forward-Looking Statements

Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters set forth in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, but not limited to: Paragon 28’s potential to shape a better future for foot and ankle patients and its estimated net revenue for the full year and third and fourth quarters of 2022. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are only predictions based on our current expectations, estimates, and assumptions, valid only as of the date they are made, and subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which we are not currently aware. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and may not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. These forward-looking statements are based on Paragon 28’s current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties are described more fully in the section titled "Risk Factors" in Paragon 28’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including Paragon 28’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 8, 2022. Paragon 28 does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements and expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Paragon 28’s views as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release. Paragon 28’s results for the quarter and six month period ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of our operating results for any future periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Their Limitations

In addition to our results and measures of performance determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP presented in this press release, we believe that certain non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating and comparing our financial and operational performance over multiple periods, identifying trends affecting our business, formulating business plans and making strategic decisions.

Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our financial performance and is also used for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, together with a reconciliation to net income, helps identify underlying trends in our business and helps investors make comparisons between our company and other companies that may have different capital structures, tax rates, or different forms of employee compensation. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to a key financial metric used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making. Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these potential limitations include:

  • other companies, including companies in our industry which have similar business arrangements, may report Adjusted EBITDA, or similarly titled measures but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures;

  • although depreciation and amortization expenses are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditures for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;

  • Adjusted EBITDA also does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs or the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation; and

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt that we may incur.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider our non-GAAP measures only as supplemental to other GAAP-based financial measures.
