NuVasive Reports Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), the leader in spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally-integrated solutions, announced today financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Third Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Revenue increased 3.2% to $247.4 million, or 3.4% on a constant currency basis
  • GAAP operating profit margin of 12.4%; Non-GAAP operating profit margin of 17.6%, up 150 basis points from prior year
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.64; Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share up 30% from prior year to $0.52
  • Company updates full year 2017 guidance

"Our results for the third quarter reflect continued strength in our International business with 46% growth on a constant currency basis year over year, representing the fourth consecutive quarter with growth in excess of 20%," said Gregory T. Lucier, NuVasive's chairman and chief executive officer. "In the U.S., we are making significant inroads in the deformity market with our RELINE® posterior fixation system and have launched multiple spinal hardware technologies over the last quarter that continue to enhance our differentiated and procedurally-focused portfolio."

Lucier continued, "Disruptions from the recent hurricanes in our U.S. and International business negatively affected third quarter total revenue results by approximately $5 million. Excluding the impact of the hurricanes and one less selling day, revenue growth would have been approximately 6%."

A full reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures can be found in the tables of this news release.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Information

Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures such as non-GAAP earnings per share, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP operating profit margin, which exclude amortization of intangible assets, non-cash purchase accounting adjustments on acquisitions, business transition costs, CEO transition related costs, certain litigation charges, significant one-time items, non-cash interest expense and/or losses on repurchase of convertible notes, and the impact from taxes related to these items, including those taxes that would have occurred in lieu of these items. Management also uses certain non-GAAP measures which are intended to exclude the impact of foreign exchange currency fluctuations. The measure constant currency is the use of an exchange rate that eliminates fluctuations when calculating financial performance numbers.

The Company also uses measures such as free cash flow, which represents cash flow from operations less cash used in the acquisition and disposition of capital. Additionally, the Company uses an adjusted EBITDA measure which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excludes the impact of stock-based compensation, non-cash purchase accounting adjustments on acquisition, business transition costs, CEO transition related costs, certain litigation charges, and other significant one-time items. Management calculates the non-GAAP financial measures provided in this earnings release excluding these costs and uses these non-GAAP financial measures to enable it to further and more consistently analyze the period-to-period financial performance of its core business operations. Management believes that providing investors with these non-GAAP measures gives them additional information to enable them to assess, in the same way management assesses, the Company's current and future continuing operations. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Set forth below are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure.
