AUDUBON, Pa., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
- Worldwide sales were $148.9 million, a decrease of 23.4% as reported
- Second quarter net loss was $20.8 million
- Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $(0.21) and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.07
- Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was 14.7% of sales
“The Globus Team performed extremely well in the second quarter,” said Dave Demski, President and CEO. “Our worldwide revenue was down 23% in the quarter, an exceptional result when compared to our peers within the industry. Furthermore, we used the opportunity provided by the slowdown in procedures to strengthen ourselves for the future. We critically evaluated all aspects of the business and trimmed back non-essential and less efficient areas; we continued to manufacture products at record levels, in anticipation of the bounce back we are already starting to see; we launched several new and innovative products; we continued to recruit competitive sales reps at record levels; and we are aggressively expanding our manufacturing capacity.”
“We are highly encouraged by the rebound in spine procedures in the US,” said Demski. “The spine business in the US bottomed in mid-April, but rebounded to produce double digit growth in June, which has accelerated into the mid-teens growth in July. Interest in robotic technology has remained high and we were able to close several deals in June and July. We are excited about the second half of 2020: Globus is poised for robust growth if the recent trends continue; and, if we do experience further disruption, our lean organization structure and strong liquidity will position us to weather the storm effectively.”
Worldwide sales for the second quarter were $148.9 million, a decrease of 23.4% over the second quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 23.3% on a constant currency basis. Second quarter sales in the U.S., including robotics, decreased by 21.8% compared to the second quarter of 2019. International sales decreased by 31.2% over the second quarter of 2019 on an as-reported basis and 30.5% on a constant currency basis.
Second quarter GAAP net loss was $20.8 million, a decrease of 154.6% over the same period last year. Diluted EPS for the second quarter was $(0.21), as compared to $0.38 for the second quarter 2019. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the second quarter was $0.07, compared to $0.41 in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 82.9%.
The Company generated net cash provided by operating activities of $23.1 million and non-GAAP free cash flow of 13.1 million in the second quarter, and ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $636.2 million. The Company remains debt free.

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, acquisition of in-process research and development, 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.
In addition, for the period ended June 30, 2020 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share, which represents 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, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments. 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 litigation, amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs/licensing, acquisition of in-process research and development, and the tax effects of all of the foregoing adjustments, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. Additionally, for the period ended June 30, 2020 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 sales growth is calculated by translating current year sales at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior year period. We believe constant currency sales growth provides insight to the comparative increase or decrease in period 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, free cash flow and constant currency 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, free cash flow and constant currency sales growth may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
