“Our first quarter’s strong revenue momentum sustained through the second quarter,” said Keith Valentine, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The success we’ve had in attracting and onboarding distributors from our larger competitors, as well as additional transformational distributors we expect to transition in the near-term, is due in large part to our consistent execution in the commercial launch of industry-leading, new and enhanced products and systems. Our expectation for continued sales traction and visibility into the second half of the year gives us confidence to further raise our full year 2022 revenue guidance.”
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Both the spinal implants and orthobiologics portfolios drove U.S. revenue growth, as well as $1.1 million of capital sales revenue contributed by 7D Surgical. Products and systems launched or enhanced via line extensions within the past five years represented 74% and 43% of U.S. spinal implants and U.S. orthobiologics revenue, respectively. Spinal implants and $1.1 million of capital sales revenue from 7D Surgical drove international revenue growth.
Gross margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 66.0%, compared to 63.2% for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted gross margin (as described below) for the second quarter of 2022 was 67.9%, compared to 64.5% for the second quarter of 2021. The increase in GAAP and adjusted gross margin was due primarily to lower excess and obsolete inventory charges and production efficiencies gained at our Irvine manufacturing facility.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $51.7 million, a $10.6 million increase compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by $7.6 million in higher selling and marketing expenses, the majority of which relate to higher selling commissions attributed to revenue growth and the impact of the 7D Surgical sales and marketing team. Research and development expenses increased $0.8 million compared to the second quarter of 2021, which was related to 7D Surgical. General and administrative expenses increased $2.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2021, which was driven primarily by higher information technology and headcount related expenses.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $13.9 million, compared to a $5.2 net loss for the second quarter of 2021. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded a $6.2 million non-operating gain in Other Income, net, in connection with the forgiveness of the total outstanding amount of its Paycheck Protection Program loan.
Adjusted EBITDA loss (as described below) for the second quarter of 2022 was $4.7 million, compared to a $3.5 million loss for the second quarter of 2021. The increase in adjusted EBITDA loss was the result of the dilutive impact of 7D Surgical on the current quarter results.
Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2022 totaled $66.1 million, and included $25 million of outstanding borrowings against the Company’s credit facility. On July 19, 2022, the Company announced that it amended its credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. to extend the maturity date through July 2025 and to expand the total potential borrowing capacity by $10 million to $40 million.
2022 Financial Outlook
SeaSpine now expects full-year 2022 revenue to be in the range of $234 to $236 million, reflecting growth of approximately 22% to 23% over full-year 2021, with growth in the U.S. spinal implants portfolio expected to exceed 20%. This compares to previous revenue guidance of $231 million to $235 million.
SeaSpine anticipates approximately $9.5 million to $10.0 million of revenue in the third quarter of 2022 attributable to final stocking orders from its European distributors as a result of its decision to exit the European spinal implants market. The Company expects to generate $7.0 million to $7.5 million of incrementally higher European spinal implants revenue in 2022 compared to the $6.2 million it generated in 2021 primarily as a result of these final stocking orders. SeaSpine will continue to market and sell its orthobiologics and enabling technologies products in the European market.

The Company presents two financial measures in this press release not reported in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”): adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA loss. Adjusted gross margin represents GAAP gross margin excluding the impact of the following items recorded to cost of goods sold: technology-related intangible asset amortization expense, nonrecurring, fixed NanoMetalene supplier processing charge, and purchase accounting inventory fair market value adjustment charges. Adjusted EBITDA loss represents earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excludes the impact of: stock-based compensation, intangible asset impairment charges, spinal set instrument replacement and impairment expenses, other income / expense, the nonrecurring, fixed NanoMetalene supplier processing charge, purchase accounting inventory fair market value adjustment charges, acquisition and integration-related charges, and employee severance and other charges related to the restructuring of the Company’s European sales and marketing organization. A reconciliation of GAAP gross margin to adjusted gross margin and of GAAP net loss to adjusted EBITDA loss for all periods presented appears in the financial tables in this release.
The Company believes that the presentation of adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA loss provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company’s results of operations.
