Orthofix Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

August 6, 2018

LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 6, 2018--Orthofix Medical Inc. (previously Orthofix International N.V.) (NASDAQ:OFIX) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018. Net sales were $111.5 million, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.05 and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.42.

“During the second quarter, we made excellent progress on our operating and margin improvement goals despite the impact of unexpected currency headwinds and order timing on topline growth,” commented Brad Mason, Orthofix president and Chief Executive Officer. “Adjusted EBITDA performance in the period demonstrated our progress in driving efficiency to reduce operating expenses and achieve our stated goal of increasing Adjusted EBITDA margin in our organic business by at least 100 basis points this year and in each of the next two years. Operationally, we completed the acquisition and integration of Spinal Kinetics, realigned our business unit structure to help further accelerate long-term growth, positioned the company for the move of our corporate domicile from Curaçao to Delaware, that was completed July 31st, and significantly reduced inventories (excluding Spinal Kinetics) over prior year. We anticipate that these accomplishments will benefit Orthofix for many years to come.”

Corporate Realignment and Domestication to Delaware

In June, the Company realigned its four strategic business units around two pillars, Spine and Extremities. The distribution, branding and leadership of our bone growth therapy, spinal implants, biologics and Spinal Kinetics business units are being combined into one Orthofix Global Spine business to maximize opportunities from the acquisition of Spinal Kinetics and, in the long-term, better leverage the full spine portfolio to achieve both revenue acceleration and cost synergies.

On July 31, subsequent to shareholder approval, the Company’s corporate domicile was moved from Curaçao to Delaware. As a result of this transition, we are reducing our non-GAAP long-term effective tax rate from 35% to 29%, simplifying our operational structure and improving financial flexibility. Additionally, the name of the Company was changed from Orthofix International N.V. to Orthofix Medical Inc.

Financial Results Overview

The following table provides net sales by strategic business unit (“SBU”):

Gross margin increased 80 basis points compared to the prior year period primarily driven by continued improvement related to inventory management initiatives, partially offset by the addition of Spinal Kinetics acquisition-related inventory fair value adjustments. Non-GAAP net margin, an internal metric that the Company defines as gross profit less sales and marketing expenses, was $37.2 million compared to $35.3 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net sales, non-GAAP net margin increased to 33.3% as compared to 32.4% in the prior year period, primarily due to the improvement in gross margin.

Net income from continuing operations was $0.9 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $4.7 million, or $0.26 per share in the prior year period. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $7.9 million, or $0.42 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $7.8 million, or $0.42 per share in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of the Spinal Kinetics operating loss in the period, adjusted net income was $8.5 million, or $0.45 per share, a 7.1% increase over prior year.

EBITDA was $6.8 million, compared to $14.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was $22.0 million, or 19.7% of net sales, for the second quarter, compared to $20.5 million, or 18.8% of net sales, in the prior year period.

9 Calculated using a non-GAAP tax rate of 35% for the first and second quarters of 2018 and 29% for the third and fourth quarters of 2018 to reflect the expected impact of changing the Company’s jurisdiction of organization from Curaçao to the State of Delaware
