CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 13 March 2024 – Medacta Group SA (“Medacta”, SIX:MOVE) today reported financial results for the  full year ending 31 December 2023 and provided a corporate update.

Francesco Siccardi, CEO of Medacta, commented: “We drove excellent organic revenue growth in 2023, delivering at the same time a better EBITDA in constant currency than planned. This performance proves our positive momentum allowing us to achieve remarkable gains in market share while protecting our margins. Our programs for 2024 foresee a continuous market penetration across all our geographies and business lines. A particular focus is on Knee and Extremities, where we will have significant opportunities thanks to innovative products and technological solutions, benefitting patients and the healthcare systems. Those products, among others, will be featured in several M.O.R.E. Symposia we are organizing in the first semester to celebrate our 25th anniversary”.

Our Achievements 

In October 2023, Medacta announced the launch of GMK SpheriKA, marking a pioneering development as the world’s first knee implant optimized for Kinematic Alignment (KA). GMK SpheriKA further reinforces Medacta’s commitment to providing surgeons with personalized solutions for each patient. By working together with a remarkable team of globally renowned orthopedic surgeons, we have introduced a product that builds upon our clinically proven GMK Sphere and incorporates the fundamentals of Kinematic Alignment to ensure that each patient receives an implant that can accommodate their unique pre-arthritic anatomy.

Within our MySolutions Personalized Ecosystem, the NextAR Augmented Reality Surgical Platform continues to be validated by research, demonstrating the precision of our technology. A 2023 study titled “Glenoid Component Placement in Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty Assisted with Augmented Reality Through a Head-mounted Display Leads to Low Deviation Between Planned and Post-operative Parameters,” published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, affirms the high accuracy of the NextAR Shoulder system. This system offers precise intraoperative guidance for the placement of the glenoid component. Furthermore, a study conducted by Prof. Dr. med. Bernhard Meyer, “Evaluating a Cutting-edge Augmented Reality Supported Navigation System for Spinal Instrumentation,” underscores the efficiency, accuracy, and adaptability of the NextAR Spine system. Those studies prove that Personalized Medicine can be accurately achieved with the NextAR Platform, a solution requiring a fraction of the investments and cost per case compared to other technologies in the market.

In November 2023, Medacta announced the commencement of a new facility expansion in Rancate, Switzerland, supplementing the ongoing construction in Castel San Pietro, Switzerland. This expansion is aimed at supporting future growth and increasing in-house production to satisfy the increasing demand for Medacta products. Over the next three years, the Rancate site will be expanded by approximately 9’500 square-meters, while the Castel San Pietro facility will see its production area increase by about 5’300 square-meters, becoming operational in the first quarter of 2024. This development is expected to create numerous new jobs, effectively doubling Medacta’s production capacity across these two technological hubs, supporting Medacta’s future needs.

Management made strategic investments in strengthening our supply chain, enhancing our logistics and distribution framework to guarantee a more efficient worldwide product delivery. In March 2023, we inaugurated a new distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, named Medacta Americas Operations, dedicated to serving the US market.

Throughout 2023, Medacta bolstered its operational and sales teams across various regions and business segments, adding 193 new roles to accommodate our expansion and ongoing market penetration.

Outstanding growth in all regions and business lines

In 2023 Medacta’s revenue saw a remarkable increase of 19.5% in constant currency, and 16.9% in reported currency, from the previous year, reaching EUR 510.8 million. This significant growth was uniformly driven by positive performance across all business sectors and regions, attributed largely to the acquisition of new customers worldwide. In addition to our commercial development efforts, in 2023 we experienced some tailwind thanks to the recovery of the accumulated backlog primarily in USA and Australia, contributing to our momentum.

In the EMEA region, revenue saw a remarkable increase of 22.6% on a constant currency basis, reaching EUR 242.4 million. In North America, revenue climbed to EUR 154.0 million, marking a 15.7% increase on a constant currency basis. The Asia Pacific region (APAC) experienced a growth of 19.4% on a constant currency basis, amounting to EUR 104.2 million, primarily due to new customer acquisitions in Japan and Australia. Revenue in Latin Americareached EUR 10.2 million, with an 11.9% growth on a constant currency basis, largely driven by increased purchases from stocking distributors.

In terms of trend by business line, revenue from our Hip products rose to EUR 229.8 million, marking a 15.5% increase on a constant currency basis versus prior year. Since 2019, revenue from Hip achieved a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%. Revenue from our Knee offerings reached EUR 198.3 million, an increase of 23.2% on a constant currency basis versus prior year, achieving a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4% from 2019. Our Extremities business line reported an increase in revenue of 33.8% versus prior year on a constant currency basis, to EUR 36.3 million. From 2019 the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) was 38.9%. Revenue from our Spine offering grew by 15.2%, on a constant currency basis versus prior year, to EUR 46.4 million, marking from 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.4%. All the business lines benefitted from significant marketing activities and salesforce expansion.

Gross Profit margin

The Gross Profit grew to EUR 347.8 million, compared to EUR 305.3 million in the previous year. The Gross Profit margin was equal to 68.1% compared to 69.8% in 2022. The change versus prior year is primarily due to a negative impact from currency development (1.5%), and temporary geographic mix effects driven by the faster growth of EMEA versus other geographies. On the other side, the significant increase in volumes generated a positive leverage effect on depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA margin

The Adjusted EBITDA grew to EUR 134.2 million (EUR 120.4 million in 2022), corresponding to a margin of 27.9% in constant currency (or 26.3% reported, including 1.6% negative FX effects) compared to 27.6% in 2022. This margin expansion was achieved through effective cost management and leveraging on fixed costs. The decrease of reported EBITDA margin reflects primarily the reduction in Gross Profit, the negative FX effect on fixed costs, and inflationary pressure.

Adjusted EBIT margin

The Adjusted EBIT for the period raised to EUR 75.7 million, 14.8% on revenues, compared to EUR 68.9 million, 15.8% on revenues, in 2022. The change in EBIT margin is attributable to the decrease in EBITDA, partially offset by the leverage on depreciation and amortization, driven by the revenue increase.

Profit for the year

The Profit for the year was EUR 47.4 million, compared to EUR 46.2 million in 2022, after a significant increase of negative financial results, almost entirely attributable to unrealized losses. The Group’s effective tax rate rose to 19.4% from 15.6% in 2022, largely due to a one-off transaction associated with establishing a logistics company in the United States, which altered the usual Group’s profit mix and average Group’s tax rate.

Solid Balance Sheet

Medacta’s balance sheet remains robust, with total assets increasing to EUR 695.9 million and an equity ratio of 47.4% at the end of the reporting period (47.0% in 2022). The Adjusted Free Cash Flow generated in 2023 amounted to EUR 6.7 million (EUR 21.6 million in 2022), after significant investments in instruments, implants, and manufacturing expansions to sustain the future growth of Medacta.

Proposal for distribution

The Board of Directors, after assessing the strong economic and financial results of the year, decided to reward our shareholders through a distribution. Our Board Members are proposing to the Annual General Meeting the distribution of CHF 0.55 per share (0.54 CHF in 2022), half of it to be distributed as dividend out of available earnings and half of it to be distributed out of accumulated reserves from capital contribution.

2024 Outlook

We are targeting revenue growth at constant currency in the range of 13% to 15%, and Adjusted EBITDA margin at constant currency improving around 50 bps from 2023 reported, subject to unforeseen events.
