Surgalign Holdings, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2021 Results

·15 min read

DEERFIELD, Ill., May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surgalign Spine Technologies, (NASDAQ: SRGA) a global medical technology company focused on elevating the standard of care by driving the evolution of digital surgery, today reported operating results for the first quarter of 2021.

Highlights:

  • Total global spine revenue of $23.3 million, compared to $27.1 million in the first quarter of 2020

  • Net loss from continuing operations of $15.2 million inclusive of approximately $3.2 million of non-recurring charges

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of $9.8 million, compared to a loss of $20.1 million in the first quarter of 2020

  • Appointed Marc Mackey as Executive Vice President, Digital Surgery

  • Submitted premarket notification, 510(k) for the Holo Surgical intelligent guidance system

“We are very excited about the recent progress we have made as we continue the transition from a traditional spine company focused on surgical approaches and procedures to a company that will redefine and lead digital surgery. The addition of Marc Mackey and his 25 years of experience in the digital surgery space adds important competencies to our leadership team that will drive this transformation,” said Terry Rich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Surgalign Holdings. “With the recent filing of our initial FDA 510(k) submission for the Holo Surgical intelligent guidance system we have achieved a critical milestone for 2021 and we remain on track to hit our goal of having the first procedures performed using the Holo system by the end of 2021.”

First Quarter 2021

Global revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $23.3 million compared to $27.1 million for the prior year period. The decline in revenue was primarily due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global elective procedural volumes.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $17.1 million or 73% of revenue compared to $17.9 million or 66% of revenue in the first quarter of 2020.

Marketing, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $25.9 million compared to $37.2 million in the first quarter of 2020. The reduction in marketing, general and administrative expenses was predominantly driven by the decline in sales and distribution costs related to the decline in sales and the elimination of administrative overhead with the sale of the OEM business.

R&D expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $2.9 million compared to $4.3 million in the first quarter of 2020. The reduction in R&D relates to the separation of the OEM business and the transition of R&D headcount.

Net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2020 was $15.2 million compared to $24.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted for non-recurring charges, net loss from continuing operations was $12.0 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $19.4 million in the prior year period.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), for the first quarter of 2021 was a loss of $9.8 million compared to a loss of $20.2 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Fiscal 2021 Business Outlook

The Company continues to anticipate full year revenue to grow in the range of 5% – 10% compared to the prior year’s global spine revenue of approximately $102 million. Our guidance continues to assume that global procedure volumes return to normal levels during the second quarter of 2021.

Based on these revenue levels, the Company continues to anticipate full year adjusted EBITDA loss will be in the range of $35 – $40 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose non-GAAP net income applicable to common shares and non-GAAP gross profit adjusted for certain amounts. The calculation of the tax effect on the adjustments between GAAP net loss applicable to common shares and non-GAAP net income applicable to common shares is based upon our estimated annual GAAP tax rate, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP net loss applicable to common shares in calculating non-GAAP net income applicable to common shares. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are included in the reconciliations below.

The following are explanations of the adjustments that management excluded as part of the non-GAAP measures for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. Management removes the amount of these costs including the tax effect on the adjustments from our operating results to supplement a comparison to our past operating performance.

2021 Severance and restructuring costs – These costs relate to the reduction of our organizational structure, primarily driven by simplification of our Marquette, MI location.

2021 and 2020 Asset impairment and abandonments – These costs relate to asset impairment and abandonments of certain long-term assets within the asset group.

2021 and 2020 Transaction and integration expenses – These costs relate to professional fees associated with the acquisition of Holo Surgical and other matters.

2021 and 2020 Inventory purchase price adjustment – These costs relate to the purchase price effects of acquired Paradigm inventory that was sold during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

2021 Gain on acquisition contingency – The gain on acquisition contingency relates to an adjustment to our estimate of obligation for future milestone payments on the Holo acquisition.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares should not be considered in isolation, or as a replacement for GAAP measures.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

The Company believes that presenting EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares in addition to the related GAAP measures provide investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial decision-making.
