Globus Medical Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

AUDUBON, Pa., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

  • Worldwide sales were $148.9 million, a decrease of 23.4% as reported
  • Second quarter net loss was $20.8 million
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $(0.21) and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.07
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 14.7% of sales

“The Globus Team performed extremely well in the second quarter,” said Dave Demski, President and CEO.  “Our worldwide revenue was down 23% in the quarter, an exceptional result when compared to our peers within the industry.  Furthermore, we used the opportunity provided by the slowdown in procedures to strengthen ourselves for the future.  We critically evaluated all aspects of the business and trimmed back non-essential and less efficient areas; we continued to manufacture products at record levels, in anticipation of the bounce back we are already starting to see; we launched several new and innovative products; we continued to recruit competitive sales reps at record levels; and we are aggressively expanding our manufacturing capacity.” 

“We are highly encouraged by the rebound in spine procedures in the US,” said Demski. “The spine business in the US bottomed in mid-April, but rebounded to produce double digit growth in June, which has accelerated into the mid-teens growth in July.  Interest in robotic technology has remained high and we were able to close several deals in June and July.  We are excited about the second half of 2020: Globus is poised for robust growth if the recent trends continue; and, if we do experience further disruption, our lean organization structure and strong liquidity will position us to weather the storm effectively.”

Worldwide sales for the second quarter were $148.9 million, a decrease of 23.4% over the second quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 23.3% on a constant currency basis. Second quarter sales in the U.S., including robotics, decreased by 21.8% compared to the second quarter of 2019. International sales decreased by 31.2% over the second quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 30.5% on a constant currency basis.

Second quarter GAAP net loss was $20.8 million, a decrease of 154.6% over the same period last year. Diluted EPS for the second quarter was $(0.21), as compared to $0.38 for the second quarter 2019. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the second quarter was $0.07, compared to $0.41 in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 82.9%.

The Company generated net cash provided by operating activities of $23.1 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of 13.1 million in the second quarter, and ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $636.2 million. The Company remains debt free.
