WESTMINSTER, Colo., May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZimVie Inc. (Nasdaq: ZIMV), a global life sciences leader in the dental and spine markets, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Management will host a corresponding conference call today, May 5, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

“We are very pleased to report our first quarterly results as a newly-spun, independent company,” said Vafa Jamali, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZimVie. “With renewed focus, we see an incredible opportunity to grow our leadership presence in the dental and spine markets, and we look forward to executing on our plan to improve the performance of our business over time.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Third party net sales for the first quarter of 2022 was $234.7 million, a decrease of (4.6%) on a reported basis and (2.7%) on a constant currency[1] basis, versus the first quarter of 2021. Third party dental segment net sales of $120.6 million increased by $7.2 million, or 6.4% on a reported basis and 9.2% on a constant currency[1] basis, primarily driven by implant and digital dentistry net sales growth, partially offset by one less selling day in Q1 2022 versus Q1 2021. Third party spine segment net sales of $114.1 million decreased by ($18.5) million, or (13.9%) on a reported basis and (12.9%) on a constant currency[1] basis, driven by the exit of a number of unprofitable markets in late 2021, the discontinuation of certain products, ongoing competition in the spine market, the impact of COVID-19, distributor bulk orders in the first quarter of 2021 that did not recur, and the impact of one less selling day.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was ($25.7) million, a decline of ($26.1) million versus the first quarter of 2021, and as a percentage of net sales was (10.9%). Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 included $11.6 million of incremental share-based compensation expense due to replacement awards provided in connection with the separation from Zimmer Biomet. Adjusted net income[1] for the first quarter of 2022 was $13.1 million, a decline of ($7.6) million versus the same prior year period.

Diluted EPS was ($0.98) and adjusted diluted EPS[1] was $0.50. Weighted average shares outstanding was 26.057 million and fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding was 26.066 million.

Adjusted EBITDA[1] for the first quarter of 2022 was $33.8 million, or 14.4% of third party sales, a decrease of ($6.0) million compared to the first quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to lower sales and higher excess and obsolete inventory expenses in the spine segment, partially offset by higher dental segment sales and timing delays of costs to continue to stand-up ZimVie as an independent public company.

ZimVie is reaffirming full-year 2022 financial guidance:

Projected Year Ending December 31, 2022
Net sales$1.0 billion
(Flat to 2021 third party net sales)
Adjusted EBITDA margin[2]13.1% to 13.6%
(Flat to 50 bps improvement)
Adjusted EPS[2]$2.10 to $2.30

Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures that differ from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure provided in this release for certain periods, and is calculated by excluding certain items from net loss on a GAAP basis, as detailed in the reconciliations presented later in this press release. Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by Adjusted Net Sales for the applicable period. Adjusted Net Sales is calculated by excluding certain items from net sales on a GAAP basis, as detailed in the reconciliations presented later in this press release.

Sales change information in this release is presented on a GAAP (reported) basis and on a constant currency basis. Constant currency percentage changes exclude the effects of foreign currency exchange rates. They are calculated by translating current and prior-period sales at the same predetermined exchange rate. The translated results are then used to determine year-over-year percentage increases or decreases.

Net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share in this release are presented on a GAAP (reported) basis and on an adjusted basis. Adjusted income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude the effects of certain items, which are detailed in the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures presented later in this press release.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in this press release.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the performance of the business. Additionally, management believes these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful incremental information to investors to consider when evaluating the performance of the company. Management believes these measures offer the ability to make period-to-period comparisons that are not impacted by certain items that can cause dramatic changes in reported income but that do not impact the fundamentals of our operations. The non-GAAP measures enable the evaluation of operating results and trend analysis by allowing a reader to better identify operating trends that may otherwise be masked or distorted by these types of items that are excluded from the non-GAAP measures.

Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release also includes certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for the year ending December 31, 2022. We calculate forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures based on internal forecasts that omit certain amounts that would be included in GAAP financial measures. We have not provided quantitative reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures because the excluded items are not available on a prospective basis without unreasonable efforts. For example, the timing of certain transactions is difficult to predict because management’s plans may change. In addition, the company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision and certainty that could be confusing to investors. It is probable that these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures may be materially different from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.
