“The third quarter of 2023 was a defining moment for Globus Medical, as we completed our planned merger with NuVasive to create the most innovative company in the spine industry. The combination of Globus Medical and NuVasive brings together two leading companies with a shared vision to improve the lives of more patients around the globe. We are now focused on executing our integration plan over the next several months to unlock the growth engine associated with a combined culture of unparalleled product development and unsurpassed customer service,” said Dan Scavilla, president and chief executive officer of Globus Medical. “Our long-term business plan remains unchanged as we move forward to help surgeons and healthcare providers deliver better care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. We are looking forward to the combined organization transforming the future of surgery.”
Worldwide net sales for the third quarter of 2023 were $383.6 million, an as-reported increase of 51.0% over the third quarter of 2022. U.S. net sales for the third quarter of 2023 increased by 42.5% compared to the third quarter of 2022. International net sales increased by 100.2% over the third quarter of 2022 on an as-reported basis, and an increase of 96.0% on a constant currency basis. Excluding business from the newly acquired NuVasive, worldwide net sales increased by 10.7%, U.S. net sales increased by 8.1% and, and international net sales increased by 25.5%, compared to the third quarter of 2022.
GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2023 was $1.0 million, a decrease of 97.9% over the same period in the prior year. Diluted EPS for the third quarter was $0.01, compared to $0.47 for the third quarter of 2022. The decrease in both GAAP net income and Diluted EPS were primarily driven by the addition of NuVasive results and acquisition related costs incurred in the quarter since the closing date of the merger. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter of 2023, which excludes merger-related costs among other costs, was $0.57, compared to $0.50 in the third quarter of 2022 an increase of 14.7%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income before interest income, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, provision for litigation, acquisition related costs/licensing and acquisition of in-process research and development, merger and acquisition related costs/licensing, certain foreign currency acquisition-related impacts, and gains and losses from strategic investments, is useful as an additional measure of operating performance, and particularly as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period, as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance, and it removes the effect of our capital structure, asset base, income taxes and interest income and expense. Our management also uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. Provision for litigation represents costs incurred for litigation settlements or unfavorable verdicts when the loss is known or considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated, or in the case of a favorable settlement, when income is realized. Acquisition related costs/licensing represents the change in fair value of business-acquisition-related contingent consideration; costs related to integrating recently acquired businesses, including but not limited to costs to exit or convert contractual obligations, severance, and information system conversion; and specific costs related to the consummation of the acquisition process such as banker fees, legal fees, and other acquisition related professional fees, as well as one-time licensing fees. Acquisition of in-process research and development represents the expensing of acquired assets with no alternative future use and related fees. We also adjusted for certain foreign currency impacts related to the acquisition costs and gains/losses on strategic investments within other assets as we believe these impacts are not a measure of our operating performance.
In addition, for the period ended September 30, 2023 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the provision for litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, merger and acquisition related costs/licensing, certain foreign currency impacts, gains and losses from strategic investments, the impact of dilution attributable to the Convertible Notes, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments. We also present Non-GAAP gross profit, which excludes the impacts of any inventory acquisition-related costs within cost of goods sold. The tax effect adjustment represents the tax effect of the pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments excluded from non-GAAP net income. The tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments is calculated based on the consolidated effective tax rate on a GAAP basis, applied to the non-GAAP adjustments, unless the underlying item has a materially different tax treatment, in which case the estimated tax rate applicable to the adjustment is used. We believe these non-GAAP measures are also useful indicators of our operating performance, and particularly as additional measures of comparative operating performance from period to period as they remove the effects of the foregoing items, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. Additionally, for the period ended September 30, 2023 and for other comparative periods, we also define the non-GAAP measure of free cash flow as the net cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for the impact of restricted cash, less the cash impact of purchases of property and equipment. We believe that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating our overall financial performance for comparative periods as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measure of constant currency net sales growth is calculated by translating current year net sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period. We believe constant currency net sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period net sales, in dollar and percentage terms, excluding the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross profit, free cash flow and constant currency net sales growth are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures do not include certain expenses that may be necessary to evaluate our liquidity or operating results. Our definitions of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross profit, free cash flow and constant currency net sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
