Globus Medical Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

AUDUBON, Pa., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

  • Worldwide net sales were $216.1 million, an increase of 10.1% as compared to the third quarter of 2019
  • GAAP net income was $44.2 million, an increase of 15.4% as compared to the third quarter of 2019
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.44 and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.49
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 34.8% of net sales

“The Globus Team executed extremely well in the third quarter, delivering record revenue, record earnings per share and outstanding Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Flow,” said Dave Demski, President and CEO.  “Our U.S. Spine business grew by 17% over last year, which reflects not only a bounce back in surgical volumes, but continued growth in market share.  Competitive recruiting and onboarding, pull through from a growing base of robotic installations, and impressive uptake from new product introductions were all strong contributors to growth.  While Enabling Technologies revenue was down compared to last year’s outstanding third quarter, we are encouraged by the health of the pipeline as we exited the quarter.  In fact, we have already sold more robots in October than we did for all of the third quarter.”

Worldwide net sales for the third quarter of 2020 was $216.1 million, an increase of 10.1% over the third quarter of 2019 as-reported and an increase of 10.0% on a constant currency basis.  U.S. net sales for the third quarter of 2020, including robotics, increased by 11.9% compared to the third quarter of 2019.  International net sales for the third quarter of 2020 increased by 1.4% over the third quarter of 2019 as-reported and an increase of 0.4% on a constant currency basis.

GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $44.2 million, an increase of 15.4% over the same period last year.  Diluted EPS for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.44, compared to $0.38 for the third quarter 2019.  Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.49, compared to $0.43 in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 14.9%.

The Company generated net cash from operating activities of $53.2 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of $35.9 million during the third quarter of 2020.  Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $685.2 million as of September 30, 2020.  The Company remains debt free.

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 expense, provision for litigation, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, 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.  Acquisition of in-process research and development represents the expensing of acquired assets with no alternative future use and related fees.

In addition, for the period ended September 30, 2020 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share, which represents net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the provision for litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments.  The tax effect adjustment represents the tax effect of the pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments excluded from non-GAAP net income.  The tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments is calculated based on the consolidated effective tax rate on a GAAP basis, applied to the non-GAAP adjustments, unless the underlying item has a materially different tax treatment, in which case the estimated tax rate applicable to the adjustment is used.  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, acquisition of in-process research and development, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends.  Additionally, for the period ended September 30, 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 net sales growth is calculated by translating current year net sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period.  We believe constant currency net sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period net 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 net 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 net sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
