OrthoPediatrics Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Full year 2020 revenue of $71.1m compared to full year 2019 revenue of $72.6m, reflecting the impact of COVID-19 on elective surgeries

Guidance for full year 2021 sales growth in the range of 31-38%, reaching $93-98 million

WARSAW, Ind., March 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS), a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter / Full Year 2020 and Business Highlights     

  • Generated total revenue of $18.9 million for the fourth quarter, down 0.1% from $19.0 million in fourth quarter 2019.
  • Full year 2020 revenue decreased 2.0% to $71.1 million from full year 2019 revenue due to the impact of COVID-19 on elective surgery volumes.
  • Recorded a $2.7 million revenue reduction due to the repurchase of inventory from a stocking distributor in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland that we converted to a sales agency in December 2020.
  • The $2.7 million reduction impacted fourth quarter revenue growth by (14%) and total year revenue growth by (4%).
  • Domestic revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 26.1% compared to prior year with particular strength in Scoliosis and Sports Medicine/Other.
  • Continued acceleration of international sales agency revenue growth of 51% in the fourth quarter, up from 26% in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Delivered strong synergies from acquisitions with 38 Orthex surgeon conversions, ApiFix receiving full approvals at 11 of the 20 IRB hospitals, and successful completion of 20 ApiFix surgeries through end of December 2020.
  • Strengthened liquidity position with $70.2 million in net proceeds from follow-on public offering in June 2020.   

Mark Throdahl, Chief Executive Officer of OrthoPediatrics, commented, “Despite COVID-19, in 2020 we continued the systematic execution of our growth initiatives both domestically and internationally. Elective surgery volumes declined globally but staged a gradual recovery throughout the year. Second quarter sales declined 25% but then began to recover with third quarter sales growth of 7% and a 0.1% fourth quarter sales decline due to the $2.7 million reduction which impacted fourth quarter revenue growth by (14%). During the fourth quarter, our domestic business grew 26% and international agencies grew 51%, supporting the beginning of an international sales turnaround. We are optimistic about the outlook in 2021, particularly with the resumption of strong international growth. As we look ahead, we will continue to execute on our growth plans to support full year 2021 revenue guidance of 31-38%. We believe we will see strong contributions from new domestic Orthex users, continued acceleration of conversions, and the Orthex European launch in the second quarter of 2021. Furthermore, Apifix will complete its 200-case registry by late 2021, and the deployment of $18 million of consigned sets in 2019 and 2020 will positively impact domestic and international sales agency markets.”

Mr. Throdahl continued, “We would like to recognize the commitment and discipline of our associates around the world who rose to the challenge of 2020. We would also like to thank our shareholders for their continued support during an unprecedented year. Last week we reached the milestone of an estimated 200,000 surgeries since the Company was founded. We remain dedicated to helping children throughout the world and driving increased value for our stakeholders in 2021 and beyond.”

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $27.9 million, a 59.4% increase compared to $17.5 million for the same period last year. The primary increase during the fourth quarter was due to accrued legal settlements of $6.3 million. Full year operating expenses were $81.8 million for 2020, a 28.4% increase compared to $63.7 million for 2019. The increase in operating expenses for full year 2020 was primarily driven by a 43.7% increase in general and administrative driven by accrued legal settlements of $6.3 million and addition of personnel and resources to support the expansion of our business. Operating loss for 2020 was ($26.8) million compared to ($9.1) million for 2019.

Net interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $0.6 million, compared to $1.3 million for the same period last year, and was $3.4 million for 2020 compared to $3.5 million for 2019.  Fair value adjustment of contingent consideration was $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 and $3.5 million for the full year 2020, compared to zero for both periods in 2019.

Total net loss including discontinued operations for the full year 2020 was ($32.9) million, or ($1.82) per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders, compared to ($13.7) million, or ($0.94) per basic and diluted share for 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2020 was ($5.9) million, compared to ($1.1) million for the full year 2019. See below for additional information and a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial information.

The weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the three-month period ended December 31, 2020 was 19,118,276 shares.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, we had 171 sales representatives up 2.4% compared to 167 in the same period of 2019.

The change in property and equipment during the fourth quarter of 2020 was $4.1 million, which compared to an increase of $1.3 million for the same period last year, and $10.5 million for 2020, compared to $11.8 million for 2019. This investment reflects the deployment of consigned sets, which includes product specific instruments and cases and trays. Including the implants, $5.0 million of consigned sets were deployed during the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $4.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2019.

As of December 31, 2020, cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash were $85.3 million, compared to $89.7 million as of September 30, 2020. The Company, together with all unpaid interest and other related amounts payable, has no outstanding term loan obligations.

Full Year 2021 Financial Guidance
For full year 2021, we expect to see very significant growth over full year 2020 with sales reaching $93-98 million, representing a range of 31%-38% growth. We expect domestic growth to continue, approaching pre-COVID levels and expect significant improvement in international sales due to the recovery by stocking distributors and continued sales agency growth, starting in the first quarter of 2021.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of U.S. federal securities laws. You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of words such as "may," "might," "will," "should," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "could," "believe," "estimate," "project," "target," "predict," "intend," "future," "goals," "potential,” "objective," "would" and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond OrthoPediatrics’ control. Important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, including, among others: the risks related to COVID-19, the impact such pandemic may have on the demand for our products, and our ability to respond to the related challenges; and the risks, uncertainties and factors set forth under "Risk Factors" in OrthoPediatrics’ Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 5, 2020, as updated and supplemented by our other SEC reports filed from time to time. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. OrthoPediatrics assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, subsequent events, or circumstances or other changes affecting such statements except to the extent required by applicable securities laws.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which differs from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Adjusted EBITDA in this release represents net loss from continuing operations, plus interest expense, net plus other expense, provision for income taxes (benefit), depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, fair value adjustment of contingent consideration, acquisition related costs and accrued legal settlements costs. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because the Company believes it is a useful indicator of its operating performance. Management uses the metric as a measure of the Company’s operating performance and for planning purposes, including financial projections. The Company believes this measure is useful to investors as supplemental information because it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in its industry. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to its management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to, or superior to, net income or loss as a measure of financial performance or cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and it should not be construed to imply that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, the measure is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as debt service requirements, capital expenditures and other cash costs that may recur in the future. Adjusted EBITDA contains certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and other potential cash requirements. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by primarily relying on the Company’s GAAP results in addition to using Adjusted EBITDA on a supplemental basis. The Company’s definition of this measure is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation. The schedules below contain a reconciliation of Net Loss from continuing operations to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA.
