NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

(Unaudited)

NOTE 1. BACKGROUND

(a) The Company

Globus Medical, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, is a medical device company that develops and commercializes healthcare solutions with a mission to improve the quality of life of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. We are primarily focused on implants that promote healing in patients with musculoskeletal disorders, including the use of a robotic guidance and navigation system and products to treat patients who have experienced orthopedic traumas.

We are an engineering-driven company with a history of rapidly developing and commercializing advanced products and procedures to assist surgeons in effectively treating their patients and to address new treatment options. With over 220 product launches to date, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of innovative and differentiated technologies that address a variety of musculoskeletal pathologies, anatomies, and surgical approaches.

We are headquartered in Audubon, Pennsylvania, and we market and sell our products through our exclusive sales force in the United States, as well as within North, Central & South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Our sales force consists of direct sales representatives and distributor sales representatives employed by exclusive independent distributors.

The terms the “Company,” “Globus,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Globus Medical, Inc. and, where applicable, our consolidated subsidiaries.

(b) COVID-19 Pandemic Impact

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures worldwide. COVID-19 has significantly impacted the economic conditions in the U.S. and globally as federal, state and local governments react to the public health crisis, creating significant uncertainties in the economy.

Although the Company cannot reasonably estimate the length or severity of the impact that COVID-19 will have on its financial results, the Company may experience a material adverse impact on its sales, results of operations, and cash flows in 2021 should there be a resurgence impacting hospitals and surgical facilities to which we provide services.

In response to these developments, the Company will continue to monitor liquidity and cash flow. The Company has the ability to borrow from a credit facility signed in August 2020, if needed, although we do not expect to do so due to our cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities balances.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(a) Basis of Presentation

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial statements and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in complete financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). As such, the information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 which was filed with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary, which are of a normal and recurring nature, for the fair presentation of our financial position as of March 31, 2021, and results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The results of operations for any interim period may not be indicative of results for the full year.

(b) Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Globus and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

GLOBUS MEDICAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

(Unaudited)

(c) Use of Estimates

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. We base our estimates, in part, on historical experience that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates and assumptions are periodically reviewed and the effects of revisions are reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements in the period they are determined to be necessary.

Significant areas that require estimates include revenue recognition, intangible assets, business acquisition liabilities, allowance for doubtful accounts, stock-based compensation, reserves for excess and obsolete inventory, useful lives of assets, the outcome of litigation, recoverability of intangible assets and income taxes. We are subject to risks and uncertainties due to changes in the healthcare environment, regulatory oversight, competition, and legislation that may cause actual results to differ from estimated results.

(d) Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to receive in exchange for those products or services. Sales and other taxes we collect concurrent with revenue-producing activities are excluded from revenue. For purposes of disclosure, we disaggregate our revenue into two categories, Musculoskeletal Solutions and Enabling Technologies. Our Musculoskeletal Solutions products consist primarily of the implantable devices, disposables, and unique instruments used in an expansive range of spine, orthopedic trauma, hip, knee and extremity procedures. The majority of contracts with our customers for Musculoskeletal Solutions products have a single performance obligation and revenue is recognized at a point in time. Our Enabling Technologies products are advanced robotics hardware systems and related technologies that are designed to enhance a surgeon’s capabilities and streamline surgical procedures by making them less invasive, more accurate, and more reproducible to improve patient care. The majority of contracts with our customers for Enabling Technologies products contain multiple performance obligations, including maintenance and support, and revenue is recognized as we fulfill each performance obligation. When contracts have multiple performance obligations, we allocate the contract’s transaction price to each performance obligation using our best estimate of the standalone selling price of each distinct good or service in the contract. Our policy is to classify shipping and handling costs billed to customers as sales and the related expenses as cost of goods sold.

Nature of Products and Services

A significant portion of our Musculoskeletal Solutions product revenue is generated from consigned inventory maintained at hospitals or with sales representatives. Revenue from the sale of consigned musculoskeletal products is recognized when we transfer control, which generally occurs at the time the product is used or implanted. For all other Musculoskeletal Solutions product transactions, we recognize revenue when we transfer title to the goods, provided there are no remaining performance obligations that can affect the customer’s final acceptance of the sale.

Revenue from the sale of Enabling Technologies products is generally recognized when control transfers to the customer which occurs at the time the product is shipped or delivered. Any revenue related to the provision of maintenance and support is recognized as we satisfy the performance obligation. We use an observable price to determine the stand-alone selling price for each separate performance obligation.

Contract Balances

Timing of revenue recognition may differ from the timing of invoicing to customers. We record a receivable when revenue is recognized prior to invoicing, or deferred revenue when revenue is recognized subsequent to invoicing.

Deferred revenue is comprised mainly of unearned revenue related to the sales of certain Enabling Technologies products, which includes maintenance and support services. Maintenance and support services are generally invoiced annually, at the beginning of each contract period, and revenue is recognized ratably over the maintenance period. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, there was an immaterial amount of revenue recognized from previously deferred revenue.

GLOBUS MEDICAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

(Unaudited)

(e) Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Restricted Cash

The Company considers all short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of 90 days or less at acquisition date to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents, which consist of money market accounts, commercial paper and corporate debt securities are stated at fair value.

(f) Marketable Securities

Our marketable securities include municipal bonds, corporate debt securities, commercial paper, asset-backed securities, and securities of government, federal agency, and other sovereign obligations are classified as available-for-sale as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. Short-term and long-term marketable securities are recorded at fair value on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Any changes in the fair value of our available-for-sale securities, that do not result in recognition or reversal of an allowance for credit loss or write-down, are recorded, net of taxes, as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income or loss on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Premiums and discounts are recognized over the life of the related security as an adjustment to yield using the straight-line method. Realized gains or losses from the sale of marketable securities are determined on a specific identification basis. Realized gains and losses, interest income and the amortization/accretion of premiums/discounts are included in other income/(expense), net, on our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. Interest receivable is recorded in prepaid expenses and other current assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

We invest in securities that meet or exceed standards as defined in our investment policy. Our policy also limits the amount of credit exposure to any one issue, issuer or type of security. We review our securities for other-than-temporary impairment at each reporting period. If an unrealized loss for any security is expected, the loss will be recognized on an allowance basis, consistent with ASC 326-30, in our condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income in the period the determination is made.

(g) Fair Value Measurements

Assets and Liabilities That Are Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or the liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Additionally, a fair value hierarchy was established that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Our assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

Level 1—quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets and liabilities;

Level 2—observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities; and

Level 3—unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data available, which require the reporting entity to use significant unobservable inputs or valuation techniques.

Assets and Liabilities That Are Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis

The purchase price of business acquisitions is primarily allocated to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values on the acquisition date, with the excess recorded as goodwill. We utilize Level 3 inputs in the determination of the initial fair value.

GLOBUS MEDICAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

(Unaudited)

Contingent consideration represents contingent milestone, performance and revenue-sharing payment obligations related to business acquisitions and is measured at fair value, based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market, which represents a Level 3 measurement within the fair value hierarchy. The valuation of contingent consideration uses assumptions we believe would be made by a market participant. We assess these assumptions on an ongoing basis as additional data impacting the assumptions is obtained. The fair value of contingent consideration recorded in business acquisition liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheets, and changes in the fair value of contingent consideration are recognized within acquisition related costs in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. The fair value of contingent restricted stock unit (“RSU”) grants are recorded as additional paid-in capital in the consolidated balance sheet on the day of the grant due to the remote likelihood of forfeiture.

(h) Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out basis. The majority of our inventory is finished goods and we utilize both in-house manufacturing and third-party suppliers to produce our products. We periodically evaluate the carrying value of our inventories in relation to estimated forecasts of product demand, which takes into consideration the life cycle of product releases. When quantities on hand exceed estimated sales forecasts, we record a write-down for such excess inventories. Once inventory has been written down, it creates a new cost basis for inventory that is not subsequently written up.

(i) Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Goodwill represents the excess of purchase price over the fair values of the identifiable assets acquired less the liabilities assumed in the acquisition of a business. Goodwill is tested for impairment at least annually or whenever events or circumstances indicate that a carrying amount may not be recoverable. Goodwill is tested for impairment at the reporting unit level by comparing the reporting unit’s carrying amount to the fair value of the reporting unit. Fair values are estimated using an income and discounted cash flow approach. We perform our annual impairment test of goodwill in the fourth quarter of each year. We consider qualitative indicators of the fair value of a reporting unit when it is unlikely that a reporting unit has impaired goodwill. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, we did 0t record any impairment charges related to goodwill.

Intangible assets consist of purchased in-process research and development (“IPR&D”), developed technology, supplier network, patents, customer relationships, re-acquired rights, and non-compete agreements. Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized over the period of estimated benefit using the straight-line method and estimated useful lives ranging from one to sixteen years. Intangible assets are tested for impairment annually or whenever events or circumstances indicate that a carrying amount of an asset (asset group) may not be recoverable. If an impairment is indicated, we measure the amount of the impairment loss as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset. Fair value is generally determined using a discounted future cash flow analysis. There were 0 impairments of finite-lived intangible assets during the three months ended March 31, 2021 or 2020.

IPR&D has an indefinite life and is not amortized until completion of the project at which time the IPR&D becomes an amortizable asset. If the related project is not completed in a timely manner, we may have an impairment related to the IPR&D, calculated as the excess of the asset’s carrying value over its fair value. There were 0 impairments of IPR&D during the three months ended March 31, 2021 or 2020.

(j) Stock-Based Compensation

The cost of employee and non-employee director awards is measured at the grant date fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period of the equity award. Compensation expense for awards includes the impact of forfeiture in the period when they occur.

We estimate the fair value of stock options utilizing the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Inputs to the Black-Scholes model include our stock price, expected volatility, expected term, risk-free interest rate and expected dividends. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock over the most recent period commensurate with the estimated expected term of the Company’s stock options offering period which is derived from historical experience. The risk-free interest rate assumption is based on observed interest rates of U.S. Treasury securities appropriate for the expected terms of the stock options. The dividend yield assumption is based on the history and expectation of no dividend payouts. The fair value of restricted stock units is estimated using the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.

On March 12, 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying generally accepted accounting principles to contract modifications and hedging relationships, subject to meeting certain criteria, that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued. The ASU is effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020, and will apply through December 31, 2022. To date, we have had no impacts on our investment portfolio or our credit agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A. related to reference rate reform. We will continue to evaluate the impact this guidance could have on our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

(l) Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. ASU 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. We adopted ASU 2019-12 on January 1, 2021. This standard did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations and disclosures. 

NOTE 3. ASSET ACQUISITIONS AND BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

Asset Acquisitions

During the second quarter of 2020, the Company acquired Synoste Oy (“Synoste”), a Finnish engineering company that specializes in the research and development of a limb lengthening system. The fair value of the net assets acquired was $25.3 million, and the consideration consisted of approximately $22.8 million of cash paid at closing plus $2.5 million of a contractual holdback obligation payable eighteen months from the closing date of the transaction, subject to net working capital and other post-closing adjustments, if applicable. The contractual holdback obligation is included in accrued expenses in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

The Company accounted for the transaction as an asset acquisition as substantially all of the fair value of the assets acquired was concentrated in a single identified asset, IPR&D of the limb lengthening system, thus satisfying the requirements of the screen test in ASU 2017-1. At the date of acquisition, the Company determined that the development of the projects underway at Synoste had not yet reached technological feasibility and that the research in process had no alternative future use. Accordingly, the acquired IPR&D of $24.4 million was charged to research and development expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income at the date of acquisition.

The transaction also provides for additional consideration contingent upon the developed product obtaining approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) of $8.0 million within the third anniversary, or $4.0 million within the fourth anniversary of the acquisition closing date, respectively. Contingent consideration is not recorded in an asset acquisition until the milestone is met.

Business Combinations

During the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company completed 2 acquisitions that were not considered material, individually or collectively, to the condensed consolidated financial statements during the periods presented. These acquisitions have been included in the condensed consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition. The combined purchase price consisted of approximately $1.5 million of cash paid at closing, plus $0.3 million of other liabilities and $33.2 million of contingent consideration payments. The contingent payments are based upon achieving various performance obligations over a period of 10 years, and are payable in a combination of cash and RSUs. The Company recorded other intangible assets of $8.8 million, with a weighted average useful life of 4.2 years, and goodwill of $26.2 million based on their preliminary estimated fair values. The purchase price allocation of the assets and liabilities acquired remains open with respect to the final determination of deferred tax asset values. The Company expects the purchase price allocation to be finalized within one year from the date of acquisition. While the Company does not expect material changes from the initial outcome of the valuation, certain assumptions and findings made at the date of acquisition could result in changes in the purchase price allocation.

During the second quarter of 2019, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of StelKast, Inc. (the “StelKast Acquisition”), a privately held company that designs, manufactures and distributes orthopedic implants for knee and hip replacement surgeries. The Company has included the financial results from the StelKast Acquisition in our condensed consolidated financial statements from the acquisition date. At the acquisition date, the fair value of the net assets acquired was $28.1 million. The purchase price consisted of approximately $23.8 million of cash paid at closing, plus $4.3 million of contingent consideration payable based upon the achievement of product sales milestones. The Company recorded identifiable net assets, based on their estimated fair values, for inventory of $15.3 million, fixed assets of $4.2 million and customer relationships of $3.9 million and goodwill of $4.7 million.

The contingent consideration payable related to the StelKast Acquisition of $5.0 million was paid during the third quarter of 2020.

Assets and Liabilities That Are Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis

Fair value of the revenue-based business acquisition liabilities was determined using a discounted cash flow model and an option pricing methodology. The significant inputs of such models are not observable in the market, such as certain financial metric growth rates, volatility and discount rates, market price risk adjustment, projections associated with the applicable milestone, the interest rate, and the related probabilities and payment structure in the contingent consideration arrangement.

The following are the significant unobservable inputs used in the two valuation techniques:

Line of Credit

In August 2020, we entered into a credit agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A. (the “Credit Agreement”) that provides a revolving credit facility permitting borrowings up to $125.0 million (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and has a termination date of August 5, 2021. The Revolving Credit Facility includes up to a $25.0 million sub limit for letters of credit. Revolving loans under the Credit Agreement will bear interest, at the Company’s option, at either a base rate or the Adjusted LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement), plus, in each case, an applicable margin, as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Credit Agreement. The base rate will be the highest of: the rate of interest announced publicly by Citizens Bank, N.A. from time to time as its “prime rate”; the federal funds effective rate plus 1/2 of 1%; and the Adjusted LIBOR Rate for a one-month period plus 1%. The applicable margin is subject to adjustment as provided in the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement contains financial and other customary covenants, including a maximum leverage ratio. As of March 31, 2021, we have 0t borrowed under the Credit Agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A.

NOTE 12. EQUITY

Stock Repurchases

Under the current stock repurchase plan, announced in March 2020, the Company is authorized to repurchase up to $200 million of the Company’s Class A common stock. The repurchase program has no time limit and may be suspended for periods or discontinued at any time. As of March 31, 2021, $95.3 million of this authorization is remaining. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on various factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements, debt covenant requirements, alternative investment opportunities and other market conditions. Funding of share repurchases is expected to come from operating cash flows and excess cash.

Shares repurchased by the Company are accounted for under the constructive retirement method, in which the shares repurchased, are immediately retired, as there is no plan to reissue. The Company made an accounting policy election to charge the excess of repurchase price over par value entirely to retained earnings.

Earnings Per Common Share

The Company computes basic earnings per share using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share assumes the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock equivalents, unless the effect of inclusion would be anti-dilutive. For purposes of this calculation, common stock equivalents include the Company’s stock options and unvested RSUs. The contingently issuable shares are included in basic net income per share as of the date that all necessary conditions have been satisfied and are included in the denominator for dilutive calculation for the entire period if such shares would be issuable as of the end of the reporting period assuming the end of the reporting period was the end of the contingency period.

NOTE 13. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

We have 2 stock plans: our 2008 Stock Plan and our 2012 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan”). The 2012 Plan is the only active stock plan. The purpose of the 2008 Stock Plan was, and of the 2012 Plan is, to provide incentive to employees, directors, and consultants of Globus. The Plans are administered by the Board of Directors of Globus (the “Board”) or its delegates. The number, type of option, exercise price, and vesting terms are determined by the Board or its delegates in accordance with the terms of the Plans. The options granted expire on a date specified by the Board, which is generally not more than ten years from the grant date. Options granted to employees generally vest in varying installments over a four-year period.

The 2012 Plan was approved by our Board in March 2012, and by our stockholders in June 2012. Under the 2012 Plan, the aggregate number of shares of Class A Common stock that may be issued subject to options and other awards is equal to the sum of (i) 3,076,923 shares, (ii) any shares available for issuance under the 2008 Plan as of March 13, 2012, (iii) any shares underlying awards outstanding under the 2008 Plan as of March 13, 2012 that, on or after that date, are forfeited, terminated, expired or lapse for any reason, or are settled for cash without delivery of shares and (iv) starting January 1, 2013, an annual increase in the number of shares available under the 2012 Plan equal to up to 3% of the number of shares of our common and preferred stock outstanding at the end of the previous year, as determined by our Board. The number of shares that may be issued or transferred pursuant to incentive stock options under the 2012 Plan is limited to 10,769,230 shares. The shares of Class A Common stock covered by the 2012 Plan include authorized but unissued shares, treasury shares or shares of common stock purchased on the open market.

As of March 31, 2021, pursuant to the 2012 Plan, there were 17,901,177 shares of Class A Common stock reserved and 806,579 shares of Class A Common stock available for future grants.

NOTE 14. INCOME TAXES

In computing our income tax provision, we make certain estimates and judgments, such as estimated annual taxable income or loss, annual effective tax rate, the nature and timing of permanent and temporary differences between taxable income for financial reporting and tax reporting, and the recoverability of deferred tax assets. Our estimates and assumptions may change as new events occur, additional information is obtained, or as the tax environment changes. Should facts and circumstances change during a quarter causing a material change to the estimated effective income tax rate, a cumulative adjustment is recorded.

The following table provides a summary of our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively:

Three Months Ended

March 31,

2021

2020

Effective income tax rate

20.7%

20.2%

The change in effective income tax rate for the three month periods ending March 31, 2021 and 2020 is primarily driven by the increase in pretax income partially offset by an increase in tax benefits related to stock option exercises and the reduction to non-tax deductible expenses in the current year.

 

NOTE 15. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

We are involved in a number of proceedings, legal actions, and claims arising in the ordinary course of business. Such matters are subject to many uncertainties, and the outcomes of these matters are not within our control and may not be known for prolonged periods of time. In some actions, the claimants seek damages, as well as other relief, including injunctions prohibiting us from engaging in certain activities, which, if granted, could require significant expenditures and/or result in lost revenues. We record a liability in the condensed consolidated financial statements for these actions when a loss is considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. If the reasonable estimate of a probable loss is a range, and no amount in the range is a better estimate than any other, the minimum amount of the range is accrued. If a loss is reasonably possible, but not probable, and the amount can be reasonably estimated, the estimated loss or range of loss is disclosed. In most cases, significant judgment is required to estimate the amount and timing of a

loss. While it is not possible to predict the outcome for most of the matters discussed, we believe it is possible that costs associated with them could have a material adverse impact on our consolidated earnings, financial position or cash flows.

Moskowitz Family LLC Litigation

On November 20, 2019, Moskowitz Family LLC filed suit against us in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas for patent infringement. Moskowitz, a non-practicing entity, alleges that Globus willfully infringes one or more claims of eight patents by making, using, offering for sale or selling the COALITION®, COALITION MIS®, COALITION AGX®, CORBELTM, MONUMENT®, MAGNIFY®-S, HEDRON IATM, HEDRON ICTM, INDEPENDENCE®, INDEPENDENCE MIS®, INDEPENDENCE MIS AGX®, FORTIFY® and XPAND® families, SABLETM, RISE®, RISE® INTRALIF, RISE®-L, ELSA®, ELSA® ATP, RASS, ALTERA®, ARIEL®, LATIS®, CALIBER® and CALIBER®-L products. Moskowitz seeks an unspecified amount in damages and injunctive relief. On July 2, 2020, this suit was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The outcome of this litigation cannot be determined, nor can we estimate a range of potential loss, therefore, we have not recorded a liability related to this litigation as of March 31, 2021.

 

NOTE 16. LEASES

The Company leases certain equipment, vehicles, and facilities under the terms of operating lease agreements. Our leases have initial lease terms ranging from one year to fourteen years. Certain leases contain options to extend the term beyond the initial lease termination date. We use judgment to determine whether it is reasonably possible that we will extend the lease beyond the initial term and the length of the possible extension. Leases that have terms of less than 12 months are treated as short-term and we do not recognize right of use assets or lease liabilities for such leases. We generally estimate discount rates using our incremental borrowing rate, and based on other information available, at commencement date of a lease when determining the present value of future payments as most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate. 

The Company includes right-of-use assets in other assets, short-term lease liabilities in accrued expenses, and long-term lease liabilities in other liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. Lease expense is recognized, on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, as a component of operating income on the condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes that appear in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and with our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2020, which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 17, 2021.

Overview

Globus Medical, Inc. (together, as applicable, with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Globus,” “we,” “us” or “our”), headquartered in Audubon, Pennsylvania, is a medical device company that develops and commercializes healthcare solutions whose mission is to improve the quality of life of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Founded in 2003, Globus is committed to medical device innovation and delivering exceptional service to hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and physicians to advance patient care and improve efficiency. Since inception, Globus has listened to the voice of the surgeon to develop practical solutions and products to help surgeons effectively treat patients and improve lives.

Globus is an engineering-driven company with a history of rapidly developing and commercializing advanced products and procedures to address treatment challenges. With over 220 product launches to date, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of innovative and differentiated technologies that are used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Although we manage our business globally within one operating segment, we separate our products into two major categories: Musculoskeletal Solutions and Enabling Technologies.

COVID-19 Update

We continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation and guidance from international and domestic authorities, including federal, state and local public health authorities, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and we may need to make changes to our business based on their recommendations. In these circumstances, there may be developments outside our control requiring us to adjust our operating plan. As such, given the dynamic nature of this situation, the Company cannot reasonably estimate the impacts of COVID-19 on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows in the future. However, if a resurgence occurs and governments mandate restrictions, including restrictions on elective surgeries, we do expect that it could have a material adverse impact on our revenue growth, operating profit and cash flow and may lead to higher than normal inventory levels, revised payment terms with certain of our customers, and a change in effective tax rate driven by changes in the mix of earnings across the Company’s jurisdictions.

We are focused on navigating these recent challenges presented by COVID-19 and believe we are in a strong position to continue to sustain and grow our business. To date, COVID-19 has not materially affected our supply chain or production schedule, although delays may be possible in the future due to the dynamic nature of the situation.

Product Categories

While we group our products into two categories, Musculoskeletal Solutions and Enabling Technologies, they are not limited to a particular technology, platform or surgical approach. Instead, our goal is to offer a comprehensive product suite that can be used to safely and effectively treat patients based on their specific anatomy and condition, and is customized to the surgeon’s training and surgical preference.

Musculoskeletal Solutions

Our Musculoskeletal Solutions consist primarily of implantable devices, biologics, accessories, and unique surgical instruments used in an expansive range of spinal, orthopedic and neurosurgical procedures. Musculoskeletal disorders are a leading driver of healthcare costs worldwide. Disorders range in severity from mild pain and loss of feeling to extreme pain and paralysis. These disorders are primarily caused by degenerative and congenital conditions, deformity, tumors and traumatic injuries. Treatment alternatives for musculoskeletal disorders range from non-operative conservative therapies to surgical interventions depending on the pathology. Conservative therapies include bed rest, medication, casting, bracing, and physical therapy. When conservative therapies are not indicated, or fail to provide adequate quality of life improvements, surgical interventions may be used. Surgical treatments for musculoskeletal disorders can be instrumented, which include the use of implants, or non-instrumented, which forego the use of hardware but may include biologics.

Enabling Technologies

Our Enabling Technologies are comprised of imaging, navigation and robotics (“INR”) solutions for assisted surgery which are advanced computer-assisted intelligent systems designed to enhance a surgeon’s capabilities, and ultimately improve patient care

24


Table of Contents

GLOBUS MEDICAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

and reduce radiation exposure for all involved, by streamlining surgical procedures to be safer, less invasive, and more accurate. The market for our Enabling Technologies in spine and orthopedic surgery is still in the infancy stage and consists primarily of imaging, navigation and robotic systems. In spine, a majority of these technologies are limited to surgical planning and assistance in implant placement which are designed for increased accuracy and time savings with less intraoperative radiation exposure to the patient and surgical staff. As our Enabling Technologies become more fully integrated with our Musculoskeletal Solutions, a continued rise in adoption is expected. Furthermore, we believe as new technologies such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence are introduced, Enabling Technologies have the potential to transform the way surgery is performed and most importantly, improve patient outcomes

 

Geographic Information

To date, the primary market for our products has been the United States, where we sell our products through a combination of direct sales representatives employed by us and distributor sales representatives employed by exclusive independent distributors, who distribute our products for a commission that is generally based on a percentage of sales. We believe there is significant opportunity to strengthen our position in the U.S. market by increasing the size of our U.S. sales force and we intend to add additional direct and distributor sales representatives in the future.

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, international net sales accounted for approximately 15% of our total net sales. We have sold our products in approximately 47 countries other than the United States through a combination of sales representatives employed by us and exclusive international distributors. We believe there are significant opportunities for us to increase our presence in both existing and new international markets through the continued expansion of our direct and distributor sales forces and through the commercialization of additional products.

Seasonality

Our business is generally not seasonal in nature. However, sales of our Musculoskeletal Solutions products may be influenced by summer vacation and winter holiday periods during which we have experienced fewer surgeries taking place, as well as more surgeries taking place later in the year when patients have met the deductibles under insurance plans. Sales of our Enabling Technologies products may be influenced by longer capital purchase cycles and the timing of budget approvals for major capital purchases.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements requires us to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of sales and expenses during the reporting periods. There have been no material changes to the critical accounting policies and estimates as previously disclosed in Part II, Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2020.

In the United States, the increase in net sales of $34.9 million was due primarily to increased spine product sales resulting from penetration in existing territories and an increase in sales volume of enabling technologies.

International net sales increased by $1.9 million, which was due primarily to increased sales volume of enabling technologies and spine product sales resulting from penetration in existing territories, partially offset by lower sales in Japan due to a sales force position.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations: Results of Operations; Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019.” on our Form 10-Q filed on May 7, 2020.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our principal source of liquidity is cash flow from operating activities, which we believe will provide sufficient funding for us to meet our liquidity requirements for the foreseeable future. Our principal liquidity requirements are to fund working capital, research and development, including clinical trials, capital expenditures primarily related to investment in surgical sets required to maintain and expand our business, and potential future business or intellectual property acquisitions. We expect to continue to make investments in surgical sets as we launch new products, increase the size of our U.S. sales force, and expand into international markets. We may, however, require additional liquidity as we continue to execute our business strategy. To the extent that we require new sources of liquidity, we may consider incurring debt, including borrowing against our existing credit facility, convertible debt instruments, and/or raising additional funds through an equity offering. The sale of additional equity may result in dilution to our stockholders. There is no assurance that we will be able to secure such additional funding on terms acceptable to us, or at all.

 

In August 2020, we entered into a credit agreement with Citizens Bank, N.A. (the “Credit Agreement”) that provides a revolving credit facility permitting borrowings up to $125.0 million (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and has a termination date of August 5, 2021. The Revolving Credit Facility includes up to a $25.0 million sub limit for letters of credit. As of March 31, 2021, we have not borrowed under the Credit Agreement.

Cash Provided by Operating Activities

The increase in net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was primarily due to the increase of cash flow from net income, reduced outflows for inventories and liabilities, and the favorable change in prepaid expenses and other assets, primarily related to long term accounts receivable becoming current. These were partially offset by an unfavorable change in accounts receivable as a result of increased sales.

Cash Used in Investing Activities

The increase in net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was due primarily to the net outflows of purchases, maturities and sales of marketable securities, which was partially offset by a decrease of purchases of property and equipment.

Cash Used in Financing Activities

The increase in net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was primarily the result of the increase in proceeds from option exercises partially offset by the increased payments of business acquisition liabilities. The three months ended March 31, 2020 included cash used for the repurchase of common stock.

 

A discussion of our Cash Flows for the three months ended March 31, 2020 can be found in “Part I, Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations: Results of Operations; Cash Flows.” on our Form 10-Q filed on May 7, 2020.

Contractual Obligations and Commitments

There have been no material changes to our contractual obligations during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Backlog

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that our inventory needs are met while maintaining high quality and reliability. To date, we have not experienced significant difficulty in locating and obtaining the materials necessary to fulfill our production requirements, and we have not experienced a meaningful backlog of sales orders. We believe our supplier relationships and facilities will support our capacity needs for the foreseeable future. A majority of our product inventory is held primarily with our sales representatives and at hospitals throughout the United States. We stock inventory in our warehouse facilities and retain title to consigned inventory which is maintained with our field representatives and hospitals in sufficient quantities so that products are available when needed for surgical procedures. Safety stock levels are determined based on a number of factors, including demand, manufacturing lead times, and quantities required to maintain service levels.

Forward-looking statements are only predictions and are subject to many risks, uncertainties and other factors that may affect our businesses and operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, health epidemics, pandemics and similar outbreaks, including the COVID-19 pandemic, factors affecting our quarterly results, our ability to manage our growth, our ability to sustain our profitability, demand for our products, our ability to compete successfully (including without limitation our ability to convince surgeons to use our products and our ability to attract and retain sales and other personnel), our ability to rapidly develop and introduce new products, our ability to develop and execute on successful business strategies, our ability to comply with changes and applicable laws and regulations that are applicable to our businesses, our ability to safeguard our intellectual property, our success in defending legal proceedings brought against us, trends in the medical device industry, and general economic conditions, and other risks set forth throughout our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, particularly those set forth under “Item 1. Business,” “Item 1A. Risk Factors,” “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and “Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure About Market Risk”, and those discussed in other documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Moreover, we operate in an evolving environment. New risk factors and uncertainties emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risk factors and uncertainties, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, events or circumstances or other factors arising or coming to our attention after the date hereof.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure About Market Risk

We have evaluated the information required under this item that was disclosed under Item 7A in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and there have been no significant changes to this information.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on their evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2021, our CEO and CFO concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) and 15d-15(d) of the Exchange Act that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2021 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

Our management, including our CEO and CFO, believes that our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and are effective at the reasonable assurance level. However, our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. For example, these inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
