LDR Holding Corporation Announces Preliminary Revenue Results for Third Quarter 2015

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LDR Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:LDRH), a global medical device company focused on designing and commercializing novel and proprietary surgical technologies for the treatment of patients suffering from spine disorders, today announced preliminary estimated revenue results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. For the third quarter ended September 30, 2015, the company expects to report: 

  • Total revenue of approximately $39.3 million, an increase of 9.5% over the third quarter of 2014, or an increase of 14.2% on a constant currency basis.
  • Revenue from exclusive technology products of approximately $36.7 million, an increase of 14.5% over the third quarter of 2014, or an increase of 18.0% on a constant currency basis.
  • Revenue in the United States of approximately $32.3 million, an increase of 15.0% over the third quarter of 2014, and representing 82.2% of total revenue.
  • International revenue of approximately $7.0 million, a decrease of 10.3% over the third quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, international revenue increased 11.4%.

Revenue from the Company’s exclusive cervical products is expected to be approximately $27.5 million, an increase of 21.0% over the third quarter of 2014, or an increase of 25.2% on a constant currency basis, due principally to the growth from sales of the Mobi-C® Cervical Disc. Additionally, revenue from LDR’s exclusive lumbar products is expected to be approximately $9.2 million, a decrease of 1.5% over the third quarter of 2014, or an increase of 0.5% on a constant currency basis. 

Christophe Lavigne, President and Chief Executive Officer of LDR, commented, “I am pleased with the growth from our exclusive technology products during the third quarter of 2015, which grew 18% on a constant currency basis. We continue to execute on our exclusive technology strategy, with 93.5% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2015 generated by our cervical and lumbar exclusive technology products compared to 89.4% in the third quarter of 2014. This reflects the growing demand for Mobi-C and our VerteBRIDGE® platform technologies. Seasonality was more pronounced in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the third quarter of 2014. Any seasonality impact in the prior year quarter was muted given that it was the first full year of Mobi-C commercial launch in the United States.”

2015 Guidance

Based on LDR’s preliminary results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company is reaffirming its expected revenue growth for the full year 2015 to be in the range of 19.0% to 20.0%, before any foreign exchange impact. This implies revenues, before any foreign exchange impact, in the range of approximately $168.1 million to $169.5 million for the full year 2015. Based on current foreign exchange rates, changes in foreign exchange rates are expected to negatively impact 2015 revenue by 4.0% to 5.0%.

LDR Holding Corporation will report complete financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015 after the market close on Wednesday, November 4, 2015. The Company will host an investor conference call to discuss the results on the same day at 5:00 PM Eastern Time.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement LDR’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), LDR uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as revenue on a constant currency basis, in this press release and accompanying tables.

Management calculates revenue on a constant currency basis by using the average foreign exchange rates for each month during the previous year and applying these rates to foreign-denominated revenue in the corresponding months in the current quarter. The difference between revenue calculated based on these foreign exchange rates and revenue calculated in accordance with GAAP is referred to as the foreign exchange impact on revenue. Management uses revenue on a constant currency basis to improve comparability between periods as though fluctuations from changes in foreign currency did not exist.

Revenue on a constant currency basis should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for revenue prepared in accordance with GAAP as it is not indicative of revenue as determined under GAAP. Management’s calculation of revenue on a constant currency basis may differ from that of other companies.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures for the respective periods can be found in a table at the end of this release.
