 CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 22 September 2023 – Medacta Group SA (“Medacta”, SIX:MOVE) today reported financial results for the Half-Year ending 30 June, 2023.

Francesco Siccardi, CEO of Medacta, commented: “We are proud to report a strong organic growth thanks to a good product differentiation, an effective marketing strategy and a constant expansion of our market opportunities. Margins increased notwithstanding the investments in structures needed to sustain our fast expansion. This remarkable performance proves the effectiveness of our strategy and provides confidence in our ability to execute the long-term value creation.”

 Our Achievements 

We remain dedicated to improve patient outcomes through innovative minimal invasive techniques and personalized solutions, maintaining at the same time a strong focus on healthcare sustainability.

Our Medical Education programs are central to our value creation strategy. In March 2023, we completed the 500th M.O.R.E. AMIS Learning Center, providing surgeons with a tailored and comprehensive program to allow for AMIS (Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery) technique proficiency.

MySolutions Personalized Ecosystem remains key to deliver our growth strategy across all our Product Lines.

On the Knee side we are experiencing a tremendous acceleration thanks to our GMK Sphere coupled with the MyKA personalised alignment technique. This combination is significantly improving patient reported outcomes and is gaining traction in the market thanks to a growing scientific evidence.

On the Shoulder side new studies have confirmed the high level of accuracy of our NextARShoulder while on the Spine we can count on almost 40% of our pedicle screws associated with either NextARSpine or MySpine.

We continued to ensure a strong supply chain through strategic investments. In March 2023 we celebrated the opening of a new distribution facility in Memphis, TN, USA, where we now occupy over 108’000 square feet in a newly constructed facility.

During the semester, 94 new jobs were added to support operations and a continued salesforce expansion across all geographies and business lines.

Revenue growth

In the first semester 2023, revenue increased 21.4% at constant currency and 20.8% on reported currency over the prior period, at EUR 255.1 million, with positive contributions from all business lines and geographies. This is a result of an effective commercial development strategy, in a market that is progressively recovering the accumulated backlog in some key areas (mainly in Australia and US).

Gross Profit margin

The Gross Profit was EUR 175.9 million compared to EUR 148.4 million in the previous period and the margin was equal to 68.9%, compared to 70.2% in the first semester 2022. The change is primarily explained by a material negative currency development, a less favourable geographic mix on revenue growth and price erosion in certain countries. Limited impact from inflation on industrial costs.

 Adjusted EBITDA margin

The Adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 71.9 million (EUR 58.1 million in H1 2022), corresponding to a margin of 28.2% compared to 27.5% in H1 2022. This result reflects primarily the leverage on fixed costs and lower increase of variable expenses on sales, partially offset by Gross Profit reduction. Currency development had a negative impact of approximately 1.6% on our operational costs, primarily due to Swiss Franc and US Dollar, which strengthened versus Euro respectively by 4.7% and 1.1% from prior period.

Adjusted EBIT margin

The Adjusted EBIT increased by 30.0% to EUR 43.8 million, or 17.2% on revenue, compared to EUR 33.7 million, or 16.0% on revenue, in the first semester 2022.

Profit for the period

The Profit for the period was Euro 29.1 million, after income taxes of Euro 7.1 million, compared to Euro 25.6 million in the first semester 2022.

 Solid Balance Sheet

Medacta’s balance sheet further strengthened, with total assets increasing to EUR 644.6 million and an equity ratio of 46.2% at the end of the reporting period. The Adjusted Free Cash Flow in the first semester 2023 amounted to positive EUR 0.2 million (positive EUR 3.8 million in H1 2022), after having invested EUR 25.4 million in additional inventory and EUR 34.4 million in new instruments to enable the expected future growth of the business.

2023 Outlook

Based on the positive business performance recorded in the first semester, we updated our guidance of full-year revenue growth at constant currency in the range of 15% to 18% (previously “10% - 13%”). Adjusted EBITDA margin at constant currency is expected to remain largely in line with 2022, subject to any unforeseen events.
