Preliminary Third Quarter 2015 Revenue Results in Advance of Attendance at the 30th Annual North American Spine Society (Nass) Meeting in Chicago, Illinois

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATEC), the parent company of Alphatec Spine, Inc., a global provider of spinal fusion technologies, today announced preliminary estimated revenue results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, ended September 30, 2015.

Third Quarter 2015 Preliminary Revenue Results:

  • Third quarter 2015 total revenue of approximately $43.0 million.
  • U.S. revenue of approximately $27.4 million.
  • International revenue of approximately $15.6 million.

Stabilized U.S. Business:

  • U.S. third quarter revenue up by approximately $0.2 million, or 0.5%, from the second quarter of 2015.

Continued Strength Internationally:

  • International third quarter revenue up by approximately $2.1 million, or 13%, on a constant currency basis, from the third quarter of 2014.

“Our third quarter results demonstrate that we have stabilized our U.S. business,” commented Jim Corbett, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alphatec Spine.  “We have significantly expanded our coverage in those territories of the U.S. market where we historically did not have Alphatec representation.  Through this expansion we have increased the number of distributor relationships and the surgeon customers that we serve.  We estimate that we will realize at least $3M of revenue from these new markets in the U.S. in the fourth quarter.  Increasing our global commercial participation in the spinal fusion market remains a key pillar of our overall company strategy and we are making meaningful progress both in the U.S. and internationally.  Our efforts during the third quarter to expand and transform our commercial execution will support future revenue growth for Alphatec in 2016 and beyond.”
