Preliminary, unaudited fourth quarter 2021 U.S. organic revenue grew 41% to 42% compared to the prior year period and 18% to 19% sequentially. The greatest contributor to growth in the fourth quarter was robust uptake of the PTP (Prone-TransPsoas) Approach, which, coupled with strong interest in the recently launched ALIF Standalone Interbody System, drove better-than-anticipated anterior column adoption. The integration of EOS imaging is proceeding as planned and EOS-related revenue exceeded expectations.
“Our dedication to creating clinical distinction drove significant growth in 2021,” said Pat Miles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “PTP continues to gain momentum and expand the market for less invasive surgery. Additionally, the real-time, objective information that ATEC alone brings into the O.R. through SafeOp (automated SSEP and EMG) is improving surgical predictability and patient outcomes. The industry’s leading surgeons and sales professionals are increasingly recognizing ATEC as spine’s new innovator. As I look to the years ahead, I couldn’t be more excited about our ability to earn surgeons’ confidence. We’ve assembled the highest concentration of know-how in the industry and built an engine capable of fueling significant revenue growth well into the future.”
The preliminary information presented in this press release is based on the Company’s current expectations and may be adjusted as a result of, among other things, completion of customary annual audit procedures. The Company expects to announce its fourth quarter and full-year 2021 financial and operating results on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, after the market close.
Financial Outlook for the Full-Year 2022
The Company anticipates full-year 2022 total revenue of $305 million, reflecting growth of approximately 26% compared to the full year 2021. This includes organic revenue growth of between 22% and 23% and approximately $45 million of revenue related to EOS imaging. Further detail will be provided when the Company reports fourth quarter and full-year 2021 financial results.
