Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Total revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $35.0 million, a 39% increase compared to $25.1 million for the same period last year. The increase in revenue in the third quarter of 2022 includes $4.4 million of revenue contribution from MD Ortho and Pega Medical. Excluding MD Ortho and Pega Medical, third quarter organic revenue growth was approximately 22% compared to the prior year period. U.S. revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $26.5 million, a 37% increase compared to $19.4 million for the same period last year, representing 75.9% of total revenue. The increase in revenues in the third quarter of 2022 was driven primarily by organic growth across Scoliosis and Trauma and Deformity as well as the addition of MD Ortho and Pega Medical. International revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $8.4 million, a 47% increase compared to $5.7 million for the same period last year, representing 24.1% of total revenue. Growth in the quarter was primarily driven by increased volumes, increased set sales to international stocking distributors in Scoliosis and Trauma and Deformity, as well as the addition of MD Ortho and Pega Medical.
Trauma and Deformity revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $23.9 million, a 42% increase compared to $16.8 million for the same period last year. Revenue was driven by organic growth from external fixation, the PNP | Femur system, and cannulated screws as well as non-organic revenue from MD Ortho and Pega Medical of $4.4 million. Scoliosis revenue was $10.0 million, a 37% organic increase compared to $7.3 million for the third quarter of 2021. Scoliosis growth was driven primarily by increased sales of our RESPONSE™ fusion system and ApiFix non-fusion system as well as increased set sales to international stocking distributors. Sports Medicine/Other revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.1 million, an 8% increase compared to $1.0 million for the same period last year.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2022 was $25.9 million, a 40% increase compared to $18.6 million for the same period last year. Gross profit margin for the third quarter of 2022 increased to 74.1%, compared to 74.0% for the same period last year.
Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $32.9 million, a 48% increase compared to $22.2 million for the same period last year.
Sales and marketing expenses increased $2.1 million, or 21%, to $11.9 million in the third quarter of 2022. The increase was driven primarily by increased sales commission expenses coupled with the addition of recent acquisitions.
General and administrative expenses increased $4.1 million, or 37%, to $15.1 million in the third quarter of 2022. The increase was driven primarily by the addition of personnel and resources to support the continued expansion of the business and an increase in legal expenses associated with recent acquisitions.
Total other income was $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $1.2 million for the same period last year. In the third quarter of 2022, we realized a $23.0 million fair value adjustment benefit which was driven by the decrease in forecasted revenue that was lower in comparison to the same period last year. In the third quarter of 2021, the Company reported a $1.4 million change.
Net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $18.5 million, compared to ($2.2) million net loss for the same period last year. Net income per share for the period was $0.88 per basic share and $0.87 per diluted share, compared to ($0.11) loss per basic and diluted share for the same period last year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2022 was a gain of $1.9 million as compared to $0.5 million for the third quarter of 2021.
As of September 30, 2022, cash, short-term investments and restricted cash were $121.6 million compared to $52.5 million as of June 30, 2022, with no balance outstanding under the $50.0 million line of credit.
Full Year 2022 Financial Guidance
For full year 2022, the Company now expects its full year revenue to be in the range of $124 million to $125 million, updated from its previous guidance range of $127 million to $130 million, representing growth of 26% to 27% over 2021 revenue. The Company now expects its full year revenue, excluding recent acquisitions, to be in the range of $113 million to $114 million, representing growth of 15% to 16% over 2021 revenue. The guidance assumes roughly $11 million of combined revenue contribution from MD Ortho and Pega Medical. The Company also updated its annual set deployment to be in a range of $20 million to $24 million and continues to expect to generate several million dollars of adjusted EBITDA for full year 2022.

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of U.S. federal securities laws. You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of words such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “could,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “target,” “predict,” “intend,” “future,” “goals,” “potential,” “objective,” “would” and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond OrthoPediatrics’ control. Important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, including, among others: the risks related to COVID-19, the impact such pandemic may have on the demand for our products, and our ability to respond to the related challenges; and the risks, uncertainties and factors set forth under “Risk Factors” in OrthoPediatrics’ Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 3, 2022, as updated and supplemented by our other SEC reports filed from time to time. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. OrthoPediatrics assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, subsequent events, or circumstances or other changes affecting such statements except to the extent required by applicable securities laws.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures such as organic revenue, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA, which differ from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Sales on an organic basis excludes from our reported net revenue growth the impacts of revenue from any acquired business that have been owned for less than one year. We believe that providing the non-GAAP organic revenue is useful as a way to measure and evaluate our underlying performance consistently across the periods presented. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share in this press release represents diluted earnings (loss) per share on a GAAP basis, plus the accreted interest attributable to acquisition installment payables, the fair value adjustment of contingent consideration, trademark impairment, acquisition related costs, non-recurring professional fees, accrued legal settlement costs and minimum purchase commitment costs. The fair value adjustment of contingent consideration is associated with our estimates of the value of earn-outs in connection with certain acquisitions and the non-recurring professional fees are related to our response to a previously disclosed SEC review. We believe that providing the non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding these expenses, as well as the GAAP measures, assists our investors because such expenses are not reflective of our ongoing operating results. Adjusted EBITDA in this release represents net loss, plus interest expense, net plus other expense, provision for income taxes (benefit), depreciation and amortization, trademark impairment, stock-based compensation expense, fair value adjustment of contingent consideration, acquisition related costs, nonrecurring professional fees, accrued legal settlements costs, and the cost of minimum purchase commitments. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures provided in this earnings release enable it to further and more consistently analyze the period-to-period financial performance of its core business operating performance. Management uses these metrics as a measure of the Company’s operating performance and for planning purposes, including financial projections. The Company believes these measures are useful to investors as supplemental information because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in its industry. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to, or superior to, net income or loss as a measure of financial performance or cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and it should not be construed to imply that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, the measure is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as debt service requirements, capital expenditures and other cash costs that may recur in the future. Adjusted EBITDA contains certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and other potential cash requirements. In evaluating these non-GAAP measures, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company’s presentation of non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share or Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by primarily relying on the Company’s GAAP results in addition to using these adjusted measures on a supplemental basis. The Company’s definition of these measures is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation. The schedules below contain reconciliations of reported GAAP net revenue to non-GAAP organic revenue, GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share to non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) and net loss to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA.
