Financial Update

Total revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2022, was $20.6 million as compared to $21.8 million in the comparable year-ago period. The decrease in revenue was primarily related to market and economic conditions in the U.S. and abroad. On a sequential basis when compared to the 2022 third quarter ended September 30, 2022, total revenue increased $0.4 million.

A large write-down of inventory related to product rationalization undertaken by the Company as part of its corporate restructuring, which began in the fourth quarter of 2022, led to GAAP gross margin of -13.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2022, as compared to GAAP gross margin of 56.5% in the comparable year-ago period.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported adjusted gross margin of 71.9% for the three months ended December 31, 2022, as compared to adjusted gross margin of 72.5% in the comparable year-ago period. This compares to non-GAAP gross margin of 74.9% reported in the 2022 third quarter, with the change primarily due to product mix shift.

Total GAAP operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2022 were $45.3 million as compared to GAAP operating expenses of $105.0 million in the comparable year-ago period. The primary drivers for the year-over-year improvement were $72.1 million of lower expenses incurred for the INN acquisition, and a $3.0 million decrease in general and administrative expenses as a result of cost-efficiency programs the Company continues to execute. Additionally, asset impairment and abandonment expenses were lower by $1.3 million and this related to the impairment of the Company's ERP system in 2021 and a reduction in capital expenditures during 2022. This was partially offset by a $16.9 million increase in transaction and financing expenses, which were predominantly non-cash accounting charges related to the difference between the fair value of warrants and the amount raised in the Company’s November 2022 offering.

On a non-GAAP basis, total adjusted operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2022 were $24.6 million, as compared to $29.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021. Excluded from non-GAAP operating expenses for the 2022 fourth quarter was a gain of $0.7 million due to a fair value adjustment related to the Holo Surgical Inc. milestones, $1.1 million in asset impairment charges, $1.2 million in severance and restructuring costs, $1.1 million of non-cash stock-based compensation, and $18.0 million in transaction and financing expenses, of which $17.0 million were non-cash and related to executing the November 2022 warrants. On a sequential basis when compared to the 2022 third quarter, total adjusted operating expenses declined by $1.9 million.

The Company reported an operating loss of $48.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, as compared to an operating loss of $92.6 million in the comparable year-ago period. Net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended December 31, 2022 was $39.1 million, as compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $88.8 million in the comparable year-ago period.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) for the three months ended December 31, 2022 was a loss of $9.1 million as compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $12.9 million in the comparable year-ago period. On a sequential basis when compared to the 2022 third quarter, Adjusted EBITDA improved by $2.1 million.

As of December 31, 2022, cash and cash equivalents were approximately $16.3 million, as compared to $51.3 million reported as of December 31, 2021.

The Company continues to implement a corporate-wide review of its organizational structure, processes and costs, along with continued product rationalization initiatives. As announced on March 6, 2023, the Company remains on track to achieve its target cash savings of $30.0 - $35.0 million in 2023 compared to 2022. Coupled with the cash received from the sale of its Coflex family of products to Xtant Medical Holdings in the 2023 first quarter, the Company believes it has cash on hand to fund the Company into the 2023 fourth quarter. Surgalign continues to evaluate all options to further improve its liquidity position.
