WARSAW, Ind., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE and SIX: ZBH) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.  The Company reported first quarter net sales of $1.847 billion, an increase of 3.6% over the prior year period, and an increase of 0.8% on a constant currency basis.  Net earnings for the first quarter were $198.1 million, or $359.1 million on an adjusted basis.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.94 for the first quarter.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.71 for the first quarter, an increase of 0.6% over the prior year period. 

"Our performance was stronger than we anticipated in the first quarter, as we saw signs of the pandemic beginning to subside across many regions toward the end of the quarter driven by acceleration of vaccine rollout.  As we move into the second quarter, we expect that momentum to continue and believe we are well-positioned to meet the needs of our customers as elective procedures return," said Bryan Hanson, President and CEO of Zimmer Biomet.  "Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the transformation of our business has continued over the past year.  We are proud of the milestones Zimmer Biomet has already accomplished in 2021 and we have confidence that we can drive significant value for our key stakeholders as we move our Mission forward."

Please see the attached schedules accompanying this press release for additional details on performance in the quarter, including sales by Zimmer Biomet's three geographies and five product categories.

Aligned with Zimmer Biomet's active portfolio management strategy and the ongoing transformation of the business, key recent highlights include:

ZBEdge includes the ROSA® Robotics Platform, anatomical visualization and guidance solutions such as Signature™ ONE Surgical Planning, remote care and patient engagement management systems like mymobility® with Apple Watch®, as well as data services and analytics including the OrthoIntel Orthopedic Intelligence Platform and the Omni™ Surgical Suite integrated operating room.



  • 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the ROSA® Partial Knee System for robotically-assisted partial knee replacement surgeries, marking the latest addition to the ROSA program and the recently launched ZBEdge suite of integrated digital and robotic technologies.



  • Key additions to the Zimmer Biomet Leadership Team, including the appointments of the Company's first Chief Transformation Officer, Ellie Humphrey, and a new Chief Human Resources Officer, Lori Winkler, as well as the promotion of Sang Yi to Group President of APAC and the expansion of Ivan Tornos' role to Chief Operating Officer with new leadership responsibilities for the EMEA region.



  • Continued momentum for the planned spinoff transaction of the Spine & Dental businesses with the appointment of Vafa Jamali as President of "NewCo".

Geographic and Product Category Sales

In the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, the Company updated its product category sales reporting. Product category sales include the following changes:

  • Orthopedic robotic capital sales and services, previously reported in the Knees product category, are included in the Other product category;
  • Disposable products used in computer-assisted surgeries, previously reported in the Other product category, are included in the Knees product category;
  • CMFT (Craniomaxillofacial and Thoracic) products, previously reported in the Dental, Spine & CMFT category, are included in the S.E.T. (Sports Medicine, Extremities and Trauma) product category;
  • CMFT has been removed from the Dental, Spine & CMFT product category and the name has been changed to Dental & Spine to reflect the revenue related to the planned spinoff of NewCo;
  • Office based technologies products, previously reported in the Other product category, are included in the Dental & Spine product category; and
  • Other immaterial adjustments across product categories related to brand alignment.

Prior period product category sales have been reclassified to conform to the current presentation.  The Company has posted updated sales tables for fiscal 2020 and 2019 reflecting these changes on the Investor Relations section of its website, https://investor.zimmerbiomet.com. These changes have no impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations.

The following sales table provides results by geography and product category for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, as well as the percentage change compared to the prior year period, on both a reported basis and a constant currency basis.

Website Information

We routinely post important information for investors on our website, www.zimmerbiomet.com, in the "Investor Relations" section.  We use this website as a means of disclosing material, non-public information and for complying with our disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.  Accordingly, investors should monitor the Investor Relations section of our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, presentations and webcasts.  The information contained on, or that may be accessed through, our website or any other website referenced herein is not incorporated by reference into, and is not a part of, this document.

Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures that differ from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Sales change information for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 is presented on a GAAP (reported) basis and on a constant currency basis.  Constant currency percentage changes exclude the effects of foreign currency exchange rates.  They are calculated by translating current and prior-period sales at the same predetermined exchange rate.  The translated results are then used to determine year-over-year percentage increases or decreases. 

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 are presented on a GAAP (reported) basis and on an adjusted basis.  Adjusted earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude the effects of certain items, which are detailed in the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures presented later in this press release. 

Free cash flow is an additional non-GAAP measure that is presented in this press release.  Free cash flow is computed by deducting additions to instruments and other property, plant and equipment from net cash provided by operating activities.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in this press release.  This press release also contains supplemental reconciliations of additional non-GAAP financial measures that the Company presents in other contexts.  These additional non-GAAP financial measures are computed from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as indicated in the applicable reconciliation.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the performance of the business.  Additionally, management believes these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful incremental information to investors to consider when evaluating the performance of the Company.  Management believes these measures offer the ability to make period-to-period comparisons that are not impacted by certain items that can cause dramatic changes in reported income but that do not impact the fundamentals of our operations.  The non-GAAP measures enable the evaluation of operating results and trend analysis by allowing a reader to better identify operating trends that may otherwise be masked or distorted by these types of items that are excluded from the non-GAAP measures.  In addition, constant currency sales changes, adjusted operating profit, adjusted diluted earnings per share and free cash flow are used as performance metrics in our incentive compensation programs.

Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release also includes certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for the year ending December 31, 2021.  We calculate forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures based on internal forecasts that omit certain amounts that would be included in GAAP financial measures.  For instance, we exclude the impact of certain charges related to initial compliance with the European Union Medical Device Regulation; restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives; quality remediation; acquisition, integration, divestiture and related; and certain legal and tax matters.  We have not provided quantitative reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures because the excluded items are not available on a prospective basis without unreasonable efforts.  For example, the timing of certain transactions is difficult to predict because management's plans may change.  In addition, the company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision and certainty that could be confusing to investors.  It is probable that these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures may be materially different from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding sales and earnings guidance, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, including related vaccine rollouts and any recovery in elective procedures, and any statements about our forecasts, expectations, plans, intentions, strategies or prospects.  All statements other than statements of historical or current fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements.  Such statements are based upon the current beliefs, expectations and assumptions of management and are subject to significant risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.  These risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances include, but are not limited to:  the effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic and other adverse public health developments on the global economy, our business and operations and the business and operations of our suppliers and customers, including the deferral of elective procedures and our ability to collect accounts receivable; the failure of vaccine rollouts and other strategies to mitigate or reverse the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; the failure of elective procedures to recover at the levels or on the timeline anticipated; the risks and uncertainties related to our ability to successfully execute our restructuring plans; our ability to attract, retain and develop the highly skilled employees we need to support our business; the possibility that the anticipated synergies and other benefits from mergers and acquisitions will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected time periods; the risks and uncertainties related to our ability to successfully integrate the operations, products, employees and distributors of acquired companies; the effect of the potential disruption of management's attention from ongoing business operations due to integration matters related to mergers and acquisitions; the effect of mergers and acquisitions on our relationships with customers, suppliers and lenders and on our operating results and businesses generally; the risks and uncertainties associated with the proposed spin-off of our Spine and Dental businesses, including, without limitation, the significant expenses, time and efforts related to implementing such transaction, the ability to complete the transaction on our expected timeline or at all, the tax-free nature of the transaction, possible disruptions in our relationships with customers, suppliers and other business partners, and the possibility that the anticipated benefits and synergies of the transaction, strategic and competitive advantages of each company, and future growth and other opportunities for each company will not be realized within the expected time periods or at all; the success of our quality and operational excellence initiatives, including ongoing quality remediation efforts at our Warsaw North Campus facility; the ability to remediate matters identified in inspectional observations or warning letters issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), while continuing to satisfy the demand for our products; the impact of substantial indebtedness on our ability to service our debt obligations and/or refinance amounts outstanding under our debt obligations at maturity on terms favorable to us, or at all; the ability to retain the independent agents and distributors who market our products; dependence on a limited number of suppliers for key raw materials and outsourced activities; challenges relating to changes in and compliance with governmental laws and regulations affecting our U.S. and international businesses, including regulations of the FDA and foreign government regulators, such as more stringent requirements for regulatory clearance of products; the outcome of government investigations; competition; pricing pressures; changes in customer demand for our products and services caused by demographic changes or other factors; the impact of healthcare reform measures; reductions in reimbursement levels by third-party payors and cost containment efforts of healthcare purchasing organizations; dependence on new product development, technological advances and innovation; shifts in the product category or regional sales mix of our products and services; supply and prices of raw materials and products; control of costs and expenses; the ability to obtain and maintain adequate intellectual property protection; breaches or failures of our information technology systems or products, including by cyberattack, unauthorized access or theft; the ability to form and implement alliances; changes in tax obligations arising from tax reform measures, including European Union rules on state aid, or examinations by tax authorities; product liability, intellectual property and commercial litigation losses; changes in general industry and market conditions, including domestic and international growth rates; changes in general domestic and international economic conditions, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; and the impact of the ongoing financial and political uncertainty on countries in the Euro zone on the ability to collect accounts receivable in affected countries.  A further list and description of these risks and uncertainties and other factors can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, including in the sections captioned "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" and "Item 1A. Risk Factors," and our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Copies of these filings are available online at www.sec.gov, www.zimmerbiomet.com or on request from us.  These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in our filings with the SEC.  Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we expressly disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  Readers of this press release are cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements since there can be no assurance that these forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate.  This cautionary note is applicable to all forward-looking statements contained in this press release.

(1)

Inventory and manufacturing-related charges include excess and obsolete inventory charges on certain product lines we intend to discontinue, incremental cost of products sold from stepping up inventory to its fair value from its manufactured cost in business combination accounting and other inventory and manufacturing-related charges or gains.





(2)

We exclude intangible asset amortization from our non-GAAP financial measures because we internally assess our performance against our peers without this amortization.  Due to various levels of acquisitions among our peers, intangible asset amortization can vary significantly from company to company.





(3)

In the first quarter of 2020, we recognized goodwill impairment charges of $470.0 million and $142.0 million related to our EMEA and Dental reporting units, respectively. 





(4)

In December 2019, our Board of Directors approved, and we initiated, a new global restructuring program that includes a reorganization of key businesses and an overall effort to reduce costs in order to accelerate decision-making and focus the organization on priorities to drive growth.  Restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives also include other cost reduction initiatives that have the goal of reducing costs across the organization.





(5)

We are addressing inspectional observations on Form 483 and a Warning Letter issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") following its previous inspections of our Warsaw North Campus facility, among other matters.  This quality remediation has required us to devote significant financial resources and is for a discrete period of time.  The majority of the expenses are related to consultants who are helping us to update previous documents and redesign certain processes.





(6)

The acquisition, integration, divestiture and related gains and expenses we have excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures resulted from various acquisitions and the planned spinoff of NewCo. 





(7)

We are involved in routine patent litigation, product liability litigation, commercial litigation and other various litigation matters.  We review litigation matters from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective to determine if excluding the losses or gains will provide our investors with useful incremental information.  Litigation matters can vary in their characteristics, frequency and significance to our operating results.  The litigation charges and gains excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures in the periods presented relate to product liability matters where we have received numerous claims on specific products, patent litigation and commercial litigation related to a common matter in multiple jurisdictions.  In regards to the product liability matters, due to the complexities involved and claims filed in multiple districts, the expenses associated with these matters are significant to our operating results.  Once the litigation matter has been excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures in a particular period, any additional expenses or gains from changes in estimates are also excluded, even if they are not significant, to ensure consistency in our non-GAAP financial measures from period-to-period.





(8)

The European Union Medical Device Regulation imposes significant additional premarket and postmarket requirements.  The new regulations provide a transition period until May 2021 for currently-approved medical devices to meet the additional requirements.  For certain devices, this transition period can be extended until May 2024.  We are excluding from our non-GAAP financial measures the incremental costs incurred to establish initial compliance with the regulations related to our currently-approved medical devices.  The incremental costs primarily include third-party consulting necessary to supplement our internal resources.





(9)

We have incurred other various expenses from specific events or projects that we consider highly variable or that have a significant impact to our operating results that we have excluded from our non-GAAP measures.  These include costs related to legal entity, distribution and manufacturing optimization, including contract terminations, gains and losses from changes in fair value on our equity investments, as well as, in the 2020 period, our costs of complying with a Deferred Prosecution Agreement ("DPA") with the U.S. government related to certain Foreign Corrupt Practices Act matters involving Biomet and certain of its subsidiaries, which DPA concluded in February 2021.





(10)

We recognized a tax benefit related to Switzerland's Federal Act on Tax Reform and AHV Financing ("TRAF") in addition to an impact from certain restructuring transactions in Switzerland. Also included are tax adjustments relating to ongoing impacts of tax only amortization resulting from TRAF as well as certain restructuring transactions in Switzerland.





(11)

Other certain tax adjustments relate to various discrete tax period adjustments.





(12)

Due to the reported net loss for this period, the effect of dilutive shares assuming net earnings is shown as an adjustment.  Diluted share count used in Adjusted Diluted EPS is:
