LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Orthofix Medical Inc. (previously Orthofix International N.V.) (NASDAQ:OFIX) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018. Net sales were $111.7 million, net loss per share from continuing operations was $0.07 and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.43.
“In addition to solid financial performance on both the top line and adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter, we made significant operational progress in the alignment of our Bone Growth Therapy, Spinal Implants and Biologics segments into Orthofix Spine,” said Brad Mason, Orthofix President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that our market-leading technologies in osteogenesis stimulation and stem cell allografts, together with the M6 cervical disc, once it is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will uniquely position us in the spine market overall and particularly in the cervical spine segment. We also believe this combination of spine products in conjunction with our historical strength in Orthofix Extremities provides the platforms for us to drive accelerating growth as we move into 2019 and for the foreseeable future.”
Financial Results Overview
The following table provides net sales by reporting segments:
|Three Months Ended September 30,|
|(Unaudited, U.S. Dollars, in thousands)||2018||2017||Change||Constant
|Bone Growth Therapies1||$||48,059||$||44,427||8.2||%||8.2||%|
|1||Formerly referred to as BioStim|
|2||Formerly referred to as Spine Fixation|
|3||Formerly referred to as Extremity Fixation|
|4||Excluding Spinal Kinetics, net sales decreased 4.5% on a reported basis and 4.3% on a constant currency basis|
|5||Excluding the contractual reduction in fee for marketing services, the growth year over year was 3.7% on a reported and constant currency basis|
|6||Excluding Spinal Kinetics and the contractual reduction in fee for marketing services, the increase was 4.5% on a reported basis and 5.0% on a constant currency basis|
Gross margin increased 100 basis points compared to the prior year period primarily driven by costs savings from our 2017 U.S. restructuring initiative and continued improvement related to inventory management initiatives. Non-GAAP net margin, an internal metric that the Company defines as gross profit less sales and marketing expenses, was $37.8 million compared to $34.0 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales, non-GAAP net margin increased to 33.8% as compared to 32.3% in the prior year period, primarily due to the improvement in gross margin and improvements in commission rates.
GAAP net loss from continuing operations was ($1.2) million, or ($0.07) per share, compared to net income of $3.3 million, or $0.18 per share in the prior year period. This decrease was primarily driven by changes in the fair value of contingent consideration associated with the acquisition of Spinal Kinetics and an unrealized loss on investment securities recognized during the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $8.2 million, or $0.43 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $7.7 million, or $0.42 per share in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of the Spinal Kinetics operating loss in the period, adjusted net income was $9.5 million, or $0.50 per share, a 19.0% increase over prior year.
EBITDA was $3.6 million, compared to $14.5 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was $21.4 million, or 19.2% of net sales, for the third quarter, compared to $21.1 million, or 20.1% of net sales, in the prior year period.
As of September 30, 2018, cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $56.2 million compared to $81.2 million as of December 31, 2017. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had no outstanding indebtedness and borrowing capacity of $125 million under its existing credit facility. Cash flow from operations was $28.8 million, an increase of $19.7 million, and free cash flow was $18.1 million, an increase of $22.3 million when compared to the same prior year period.
