RTI Surgical® Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

DEERFIELD, Ill., Oct. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RTIX), a global surgical implant company, reported operating results for the third quarter of 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights:

  • Revenue of $76.1 million, up 10.2% compared to the third quarter of 2018
  • Net Loss of $4.9 million, or $0.06 per common share, inclusive of $5.3 million of non-recurring costs
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $7.1 million, or 9.3% of revenue
  • Revenue and EBITDA guidance updated to reflect current business progress

“RTI Surgical increased revenue by 10 percent in the third quarter of 2019 driven by the addition of coflex and strong performance in our OEM franchise, partially offset by lower than expected revenue contribution from our global spine business,” said Camille Farhat, President and CEO, RTI Surgical. “We remain confident in our long-term strategy and our ability to drive growth in the business.

Farhat continued, “We see early evidence of progress on the implementation of our commercial operating system to drive adoption of our Novel Therapies. We are dedicating resources and focus to rapidly develop and introduce new products for Established Therapies. We remain committed to our efforts to accelerate growth in our global spine business as we continue to invest in differentiation and scale.  We are confident our efforts will result in a return to growth in this business in 2020.”

Third Quarter 2019

RTI’s worldwide revenues for the third quarter of 2019 were $76.1 million, an increase of $7.1 million, or 10.2% compared with $69.1 million during the same period in the prior year.  The third quarter 2019 revenue included $8.2 million global contribution from the acquisition of Paradigm Spine closed on March 9, 2019.  Gross profit for the third quarter of 2019 was $41.5 million, or 54.5% of revenues, a 10.2% increase compared to $37.7 million, or 54.5% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2018.  Gross profit for the third quarter of 2019 included a $2.1 million charge for the purchase accounting step-up of coflex inventory.  Gross profit adjusted for the impact of non-recurring charges was 57.3% of revenue for the third quarter of 2019 compared to 54.5% of revenue for the prior year quarter.

During the third quarter of 2019, RTI incurred $3.2 million in non-recurring pre-tax acquisition and integration costs related primarily to activities to reduce complexity and accelerate growth.

Net loss applicable to common shares was $4.9 million, or $0.06 per fully diluted common share in the third quarter of 2019, compared to net income applicable to common shares of $2.9 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted common share in the third quarter of 2018. As outlined in the reconciliation tables that follow, excluding the impact of non-recurring charges, adjusted net loss applicable to common shares was $1.0 million, or $0.01 per fully diluted common share in the third quarter of 2019.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), for the third quarter of 2019 was $7.1 million, or 9.3% of revenues, compared with $9.1 million, or 13.1% of revenues for the third quarter of 2018.  The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by incremental operating costs from the acquisition of Paradigm Spine completed in early March of 2019.
