Item 2.02Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 3, 2021, SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (“SeaSpine,” the “Company,” or “our”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and reaffirming the financial outlook for 2021 (the “Press Release”). A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1.
The information under this Item 2.02 and in Exhibit 99.1 is being furnished and is not being filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is not to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in any such filing, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measure
In the Press Release, in addition to GAAP results, the Company provides a non-GAAP measure, earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset impairment charges, spinal set instrument replacement and impairment expenses, other income / expense, and acquisition and integration-related charges (“Adjusted EBITDA Loss”).

The Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA Loss provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's results of operations. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA Loss when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's acquisition and integration activities, for which the amounts are non-cash in nature, and/or for which the amounts are not expected to recur at the same magnitude, provides a supplemental measure of our operating results that facilitates comparability of our financial condition and operating performance from period to period, against our business model objectives, and against other companies in our industry. The Company has chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our core business and the valuation of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA Loss is a measure used by management for purposes of:
supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to the Company's board of directors;
evaluating, managing and benchmarking the operating performance of the Company;
establishing internal operating budgets;
enhancing comparability from period to period; and
comparing performance with internal forecasts and targeted business models.

The measure of Adjusted EBITDA Loss consists of GAAP net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excludes the impact of the following items:
Stock-based compensation. Management excludes this item when evaluating the Company's operating performance because it is a non-cash expense.
Intangible asset impairment charges. Management excludes this item when evaluating the Company's operating performance because it is a non-cash expense.
Spinal set instrument replacement expenses. The cost of purchased instruments used to replace damaged instruments in existing sets is recorded directly to instrument replacement expense. Management excludes this item when evaluating the Company's operating performance because it is, in nature and substance, very similar to depreciation expense recorded over time for spinal set instruments deployed to new sets.
Spinal set instrument impairment expenses. Management excludes this item when evaluating the Company's operating performance because it is a non-cash expense and the frequency and amount of such charges may vary significantly based on the timing and magnitude of our product discontinuance or other similar activities.
Other income / expense. Management excludes this item when evaluating the Company’s operating performance because it is non-operating in nature and not related to its core operating performance.



Acquisition and integration-related charges. Acquisition and integration-related charges include (i) legal, accounting, and other outside consultant expenses directly related to acquisitions, (ii) inventory fair value purchase accounting adjustments, and (iii) costs related to acquisition integration, including systems, operations, retention and severance. Inventory fair value purchase accounting adjustments consist of the increase to cost of goods sold that occur as a result of expensing the “step up” in the fair value of inventory that the Company purchased in connection with acquisitions as that inventory is sold during the financial period. These acquisition and integration-related charges are not factored into the evaluation of our performance by management after completion of acquisitions because they are of a temporary nature, they are not related to our core operating performance and the frequency and amount of such charges vary significantly based on the timing and magnitude of our acquisition transactions as well as the level of inventory on hand at the time of acquisition.
Adjusted EBITDA Loss is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs or benefits associated with the operations of the Company's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. The Company expects to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to many of the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from its adjusted financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all of these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

SeaSpine Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Reaffirms 2021 Financial Outlook

CARLSBAD, CA (May 3, 2021) - SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNE), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, today announced financial results for the three-months ended March 31, 2021.

Summary of First Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Recent Accomplishments
Total revenue of $42.0 million, reflecting an 18% increase in sales-per-day (to account for the one additional selling day in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2021) compared to the prior year period and a 16% increase, as reported
U.S. revenue of $37.5 million, reflecting a 20% increase in sales-per-day (18%, as reported) compared to the prior year period
U.S. Spinal Implants revenue of $18.4 million, a 29% increase in sales-per-day
U.S. Orthobiologics revenue of $19.1 million, a 12% increase in sales-per-day
Initiated limited commercial launches of the WaveForm TA and WaveForm TO 3D-Printed Interbody Implant Systems
Initiated full commercial launch of the Reef TO Interbody System
Announced the agreement to acquire 7D Surgical in a cash and stock deal valued at $110 million
Raised $95 million of net proceeds in April from an underwritten public offering of 5.2 million shares of common stock

“We were pleased with revenue acceleration as the first quarter progressed,” said Keith Valentine, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite the headwinds we faced in January and early February due to COVID restrictions on spine surgeries, we exceeded our own internal expectations for the quarter with strong results in March as those restrictions eased. With more robust spine surgery volumes anticipated as we continue to emerge from the COVID pandemic, the anticipated contribution from the pending acquisition of 7D Surgical, and the significant strengthening of our balance sheet with the recent financing, SeaSpine has never been better positioned to continue to take market share and to continue its positive growth trajectory.”







First Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $42.0 million, a 16% reported increase compared to the same period of the prior year. U.S. revenue was $37.5 million, an 18% reported increase compared to the first quarter of 2020. The increase in U.S. revenue was driven by both the spinal implants and orthobiologics portfolios. Sales of new and recently launched products increased to 74% and 39% of U.S. spinal implants and U.S. orthobiologics revenue, respectively. International revenue was $4.5 million, a 4% reported increase compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 63.4%, compared to 61.8% for the same period of the prior year. The increase in gross margin in the current year was primarily due to increased sales in the U.S. of the Company’s higher gross margin spinal implant products and lower excess and obsolete inventory provisions in relation to revenue.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $39.1 million, a $4.1 million increase compared to $35.0 million for the first quarter of 2020. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by $2.9 million in higher selling and marketing expenses, the substantial majority of which relates to selling commissions, $1.9 million in higher general and administrative expenses, which was driven mostly by legal and other professional fees incurred in connection the pending 7D Surgical acquisition, and $0.6 million in higher research and development expenses. These increases were partially offset by a $1.3 million non-cash, intangible asset impairment charge associated with acquired technology that was recorded in the first quarter of 2020.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $12.7 million, compared to a net loss of $12.6 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA Loss (as described below) for the first quarter of 2021 was a loss of $5.2 million, compared to a loss of $6.2 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 totaled $87.7 million, and the Company had $20 million outstanding under its credit facility and $6.2 million outstanding under its Paycheck Protection Program loan. These amounts do not include the $95 million of net proceeds received in April 2021 from the underwritten public offering of 5.2 million shares of the Company's common stock nor the repayment in April 2021 of the $20 million of outstanding borrowings under its credit facility.

2021 Financial Outlook
Without giving effect to the pending acquisition of 7D Surgical, the Company continues to expect full-year 2021 total revenue to be in the range of $193 million to $198 million, reflecting growth of 25% to 28% compared to the prior year.

Financial Impact of Acquisition of 7D Surgical
Including the acquisition of 7D Surgical, which the Company expects to close in the second quarter of 2021, SeaSpine continues to expect full-year 2021 total revenue to be in the range of $200 million to $205 million, reflecting growth of 30% to 33% compared to the prior year.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Information
Adjusted EBITDA Loss is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excludes the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset impairment charges, spinal set instrument replacement and





impairment expenses, other income / expense, and acquisition and integration-related charges. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to Adjusted EBITDA Loss for all periods presented appears in the financial tables in this release.

The Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA Loss provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's results of operations. For further information regarding why SeaSpine believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses this measure, and some of the limitations associated with the use of this measure, please refer to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K regarding this earnings press release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and on Investors section of the Company's website at www.seaspine.com.

Forward-Looking Statements
SeaSpine cautions you that statements in this news release that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements that are based on the Company's current expectations and assumptions. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the Company’s expectation regarding more robust spine surgery volumes as the Company emerges from the COVID pandemic; the Company’s 2021 financial outlook; the timing and closing of the 7D Surgical acquisition and realization of the expected benefits thereof, including additional revenue growth; and the Company’s positioning to continue to take market share and to continue its positive growth trajectory. Among the factors that could cause or contribute to material differences between the Company’s actual results and the expectations indicated by the forward-looking statements are risks and uncertainties that include, but are not limited to: the extent of the impact of the COVID-19





pandemic on the Company's business and the economy, including a resurgence in the deferral of spine surgeries, whether as a result of patient or surgeon safety concerns, government-imposed restrictions, or otherwise; surgeons’ willingness to continue to use the Company’s existing products and to adopt its newly launched products; the Company’s ability to attract new, high-quality distributors, whether as a result of perceived deficiencies in the Company’s existing product portfolio, inability to reach agreement on financial or other contractual terms, or otherwise, as well as disruption associated with restrictive covenants to which distributors are subject and potential litigation and expense associated therewith; continued pricing pressure, whether as a result of consolidation in hospital systems, competitors or others, as well as exclusion from major healthcare systems; the receipt of all required regulatory, governmental and shareholder approvals and satisfaction of all closing conditions for the 7D Surgical acquisition; the risk of supply shortages and the associated, potentially long-term disruption to product sales, including as a result of the Company’s dependence on PcoMed to supply products incorporating NanoMetalene technology and a limited number of third-party suppliers for other components and raw materials, or otherwise; general economic and business conditions in the markets in which the Company does business, both in the U.S. and abroad; and other risks and uncertainties more fully described in the Company’s news releases and periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company’s public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission are available at www.sec.gov.

You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date when made.
