  • Closed acquisition of EOS imaging, S.A. (“EOS”), and commenced integration to advance ATEC clinical prowess with improved information from diagnosis to follow-up.

“We are accelerating revenue through sound execution of our growth priorities,” said Pat Miles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “But this is just the first inning; we intend to become the dominant force in the industry by significantly improving the clinical experience in spine. We channeled decades of spine experience as the pioneers of lateral surgery to create the PTP technique in order to improve the optionality and predictability of the lateral approach. PTP adoption is accelerating and utilization is increasing among both new and existing surgeon customers. In a few short years, we have created surgical approaches and products that are unrivaled. With the close of the EOS transaction, we intend to extend our prowess by equipping the AlphaInformatiX platform with unprecedented imaging information throughout the entire continuum of care, bringing the standards relied on by the world’s most prestigious academic centers to spine surgery. Our early success has driven excitement within these walls that is palpable – we know the opportunity ahead of us and are confident we have what it takes to win in the innings ahead.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the Company’s financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company reports certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP U.S. gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with an additional tool for evaluating the Company’s core performance, which management uses in its own evaluation of continuing operating performance, and a baseline for assessing the future earnings potential of the Company. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company’s industry, as other companies in the industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Non-GAAP financial results should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Included below are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.
