RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc.® Provides Business Updates

DEERFIELD, Ill., June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RTIX), a global surgical implant company, today provided a business update in conjunction with releasing financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Business Update Highlights:

  • Scheduled special meeting of stockholders for July 15, 2020 to vote on sale of OEM business
  • Announced two senior leadership appointments and a new director to support transition to a pure-play global spine company
  • First quarter 2020:
    • Revenue of $73.7 million, up 5% compared to the first quarter of 2019
    • Net loss of $17.9 million, or $0.24 per common share
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.4 million, or 2% of revenue

“I am very proud of the actions taken by our entire organization over the last several months as we have navigated the COVID-19 pandemic while at the same time managing through the pending sale of the OEM business and a number of other headwinds,” said Camille Farhat, President and CEO, RTI Surgical. “The integrity, dedication, and talent of our people have enabled us to come out on the other side of this unique period in time ready to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in the Spine market for high-value surgical solutions.”

Farhat continued, “We view the recent disruption as transitory, and despite the uncertainty associated with COVID-19, we remain very confident in the long-term prospects of the Spine business. We are targeting double-digit long-term revenue growth with gross margins of 75% by executing on our strategy of build, innovate, and acquire. We are very excited about this next phase of RTI’s transformation.”

Annual Meeting and Special Meeting of Stockholders
The company will hold its annual meeting of stockholders on July 15, 2020. Among the matters to be considered and voted on at the Annual Meeting, which, as previously disclosed, will be combined with a special meeting of the stockholders, are the various proposals necessary to approve the transactions contemplated by the previously announced Equity Purchase Agreement, dated January 13, 2020, as amended, with Ardi Bidco Ltd., a Delaware corporation and an entity affiliated with Montagu Private Equity, LLP (the “Buyer”), pursuant to which the Buyer will acquire the OEM business of the Company by means of a sale of certain affiliates of the Company.

Spine Business Update
On June 10, 2020 The Company announced two senior leadership appointments to support its transition to a pure-play global spine company. Scott Durall joined RTI as Chief Commercial Officer, and Bryan Cornwall joined RTI as Executive Vice President, Research and Clinical Affairs, both effective June 15, 2020. Durall and Cornwall bring to RTI decades of commercial, operational and scientific expertise, and will support the Company’s ongoing focus on becoming a leader in the global spine market following the close of the pending sale of the OEM business. Please see our related press release for more detail on their backgrounds.

In addition, on June 1, Stuart F. Simpson joined the Board of Directors and was recently named Vice Chairman of the Board.  Mr. Simpson brings decades of industry experience which will be valuable in supporting RTI’s strategy as a pure-play global spine company.

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results
RTI’s worldwide revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were $73.7 million, an increase of $3.7 million, or 5% compared with $70.0 million during the same period in the prior year. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $40.5 million, or 55% of revenues, a 7.0% increase compared to $37.9 million, or 54% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2019.

Net loss applicable to common shares was $17.9 million, or $0.24 per fully diluted common share in the first quarter of 2020, compared to net loss applicable to common shares of $9.4 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted common share in the first quarter of 2019.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.4 million, or 2% of revenues, compared with $7.0 million, or 10% of revenues for the first quarter of 2019.  The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by annualization of costs related to the Paradigm acquisition and incremental investment for the separation of the business to support the sale of the OEM business.

2020 Outlook
Due to the inability to estimate the size and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s operations and financial results, RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc. will not provide guidance for fiscal year 2020. We will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations and financial results and will provide additional information when we are more certain.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares. The calculation of the tax effect on the adjustments between GAAP net loss applicable to common shares and non-GAAP net income applicable to common shares is based upon our estimated annual GAAP tax rate, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP net loss applicable to common shares in calculating Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares-Diluted. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures is included in the tables listed above.        

The following are explanations of the adjustments that management excluded as part of the non-GAAP measures for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. Management removes the amount of these costs including the tax effect on the adjustments from our operating results to supplement a comparison to our past operating performance.

2020 Asset impairment and abandonments – These costs relate to asset impairment and abandonments of certain long-term assets within the Spine asset group.

2020 Other general expenses – These costs relate to consulting and legal fees and settlement expenses incurred as a result of the restatement, regulatory and related activities in 2020.

2020 Transaction and integration expenses – These costs relate to transaction and separation expenses due the Sale of OEM in 2020.

2020 Inventory purchase price adjustment – These costs relate to the purchase price effects of acquired Paradigm inventory that was sold during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

2019 Transaction and integration expenses – These costs relate to acquisition and integration expenses due to the purchase of Paradigm in 2019.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares should not be considered in isolation, or as a replacement for GAAP measures.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

The Company believes that presenting EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Applicable to Common Shares in addition to the related GAAP measures provide investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial decision-making. The Company further believes that providing this information better enables the Company’s investors to understand the Company’s overall core performance and to evaluate the methodology used by management to assess and measure such performance.
