WESTMINSTER, Colo., Nov. 09, 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 September 30, 2022. Management will host a corresponding conference call today, November 9, 2022, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
“I am pleased with our operational progress and the work we are doing to enhance our portfolios in both dental and spine. Our TSX and T3® PRO Tapered dental implants and Encode® Emergence Healing Abutment are gaining traction, while we remain focused on innovating around our core spine platform and driving adoption of our clinically differentiated motion preservation solutions,” said Vafa Jamali, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZimVie. “We continue to transform the business by tactically innovating in strategic areas.”
Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Third party net sales for the third quarter of 2022 were $213.3 million, a decrease of (10.6%) on a reported basis and (6.8%) on a constant currency basis, versus the third quarter of 2021. Third party dental segment net sales of $105.1 million decreased by ($4.3) million, or (3.9%) on a reported basis, but increased 1.6% on a constant currency basis. The sales decrease includes the negative impact of approximately $1.0 million due to a one-day shutdown of our Palm Beach Gardens dental facility during Hurricane Ian. Third party spine segment net sales of $108.2 million decreased by ($21.1) million, or (16.4%) on a reported basis and (13.9%) on a constant currency basis, driven by the exit of a number of unprofitable markets in late 2021, the discontinuation of certain products, the impact of the third party net sales retained by Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (“Zimmer Biomet”) until we complete our separation activities in certain markets, and continued competitive pressures in the spine market.
Net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $0.8 million, an increase of $31.1 million versus the net loss of ($30.2) million in the third quarter of 2021, and as a percentage of total net sales was 0.4%. The increase in net income was primarily due to lower inventory charges, the release in the 2022 third quarter of a spin-related contingent liability with Zimmer Biomet, and certain income tax benefits, including a benefit in the 2022 third quarter from a favorable Puerto Rico tax ruling related to the intercompany sale of intellectual property prior to the spin. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $12.9 million, an increase of $5.7 million versus the same prior year period and excludes the benefit of the aforementioned favorable tax ruling.
Basic and diluted EPS each was $0.03 and adjusted diluted EPS was $0.49. Weighted average shares outstanding for basic EPS and diluted EPS was 26.1 million and 26.2 million, respectively.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2022 was $29.4 million, or 13.8% of third party net sales, an increase of $5.8 million, or an additional 390 basis points of margin, compared to the third quarter of 2021.
Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the third quarter of 2022 were $116.0 million.
Full-year 2022 financial guidance:
We are reaffirming guidance for third party net sales of $915 to $930 million, with expectations for the dental business to deliver mid single digit growth in constant currency and the spine business to decline in the low double digits in constant currency.
We are reaffirming our adjusted EBITDA margin guidance of flat to 50bps improvement from prior year margin of 13.1%.
We are reaffirming adjusted EPS guidance of $1.80 to $2.00.
 This is a non-GAAP financial measure. Refer to “Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations in this release for further information.
 This is a non-GAAP financial measure for which a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable efforts. Refer to “Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in this release for further information.
The financial information included in this release for periods prior to March 1, 2022 is derived from the financial statements and records of the dental and spine businesses of Zimmer Biomet due to the fact that during such periods, ZimVie was still a wholly-owned subsidiary of, and operated under those businesses of, Zimmer Biomet.

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 income (loss) on a GAAP basis, as detailed in the reconciliations presented later in this press release. Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by third party net sales for the applicable period.
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 net 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.
