AUDUBON, Pa., Nov. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading musculoskeletal implant manufacturer, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

David Paul, Chairman and CEO said, “Third quarter sales were $135.7 million, a year-over-year decrease of 1%. Despite our increased spending in support of our pending robotics and trauma launches, our EBITDA margins remained stable with the prior year, at 37.0%. We also delivered non-GAAP EPS of $0.29, in line with the prior year.

"During the third quarter, we continued progress with product development, sales force expansion and completed the acquisition of Alphatec's international business. We also made further progress expanding our in-house manufacturing capacity. We launched 7 new products in the third quarter, bringing our 2016 total to 15. We remain confident in our long term growth prospects and our ability to sustain our industry leading profitability by the continued execution of our strategy of introducing innovative products, expanding our U.S. and international sales footprint, and diligent expense control.”

Third quarter sales in the U.S. decreased by 4.1% compared to the third quarter of 2015. International sales increased by 34.1% over the third quarter of 2015 on an as reported basis and 38.0% on a constant currency basis.

Third quarter net income was $26.2 million, a decrease of 1.0% over the same period last year. Diluted EPS for the third quarter was $0.27, as compared to $0.28 for the third quarter 2015. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter, was $0.29, consistent with the third quarter of 2015.

The company generated net cash provided by operating activities of $41.9 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of $24.6 million in the third quarter. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities ended the quarter at $322.4 million. The company remains debt free.

2016 and 2017 Annual Guidance
The company today issued new guidance for full year 2016 sales of $560 million and GAAP earnings per share of approximately $1.13. Guidance for non-GAAP diluted EPS remains unchanged at $1.20 per share.

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, provisions for litigation, and acquisition related costs, 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 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.

In addition, for the period ended September 30, 2016 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, and the tax effects of such adjustments. 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, and the tax effects of such adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. Additionally, for the periods ended September 30, 2016 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 sales growth is calculated by translating current year sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period. We believe constant currency sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period 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 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 sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable. Additionally, we have recast prior periods for non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share.
