(Nasdaq:ATEC), the parent company of Alphatec Spine, Inc., a medical device company that provides physician-inspired solutions for patients with spinal disorders, today announced its top line financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended September 30, 2013.

Third Quarter Revenue Highlights include:

  • Third quarter 2013 total revenue is approximately $50.1 million; up approximately 7.0% from the third quarter of 2012, or approximately 10.0% on a constant currency basis, representing broad growth in all of our markets.
  • U.S. revenue of approximately $33.7 million; up approximately 8.8% from the third quarter of 2012. Positive performance in the U.S. was the result of continued solid unit volume gains in our core hospital business and increased surgeon uptake across our various product lines.
  • International revenue is approximately $16.4 million; up approximately 3.4% from the third quarter of 2012, or approximately 13.0% on a constant currency basis. Strong operational performance was again attributable to the Company's robust business in Japan combined with thriving underlying demand in Latin America, Asia and Europe.
