"While we are pleased with the long-term business prospects and fundamentals at Alphatec Spine, and our current growth rate continues to exceed that of most of our competitors and the broader spine market, our growth rate was below our expectations. Several factors contributed to this: U.S. price pressure on our core products, which we believe to be in the mid single digits; the unpredictability of product approvals by the FDA, which makes the timing of market release of key technologies uncertain; and the complexity of integrating an international organization into our operations," stated Dirk Kuyper, Alphatec Spine's President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Kuyper continued, "We continue to be enthusiastic that with the addition of Scient'x, and as a result of the transaction, we believe that Alphatec Spine is the leading pure-play spine company that is truly global, with scale to address opportunities in the U.S., Asia, Europe, Middle East and Latin America. We continue to experience strong growth in the volume of surgical procedures performed in the U.S., and have addressed the current market challenges to ensure sustainable long-term revenue growth and a drive to profitability. We look forward to leveraging our broad-based international distribution network towards those goals."

Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results

As previously announced, on March 26, 2010 the Company completed the acquisition of Scient'x S.A., a global medical device company based in France that designs, develops and manufactures surgical implants to treat disorders of the spine. As of March 31, 2010, the Company's consolidated balance sheet includes the fair value of Scient'x's acquired assets and assumed liabilities. Commencing April 1, 2010, the Company's consolidated statement of operations and consolidated statement of cash flows include the operating results of Scient'x.

In connection with the Company's strategy to focus on the sale of spinal implants in Japan, in April 2010, Alphatec Pacific entered into an agreement to sell one of its wholly owned subsidiaries, IMC, to a third party. As a result of this sale, the Company is reporting IMC's operating results as discontinued operations for both periods of 2010 and 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2009, IMC's revenue was $11.5 million and IMC's net income was $0.3 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2010, IMC's revenue was $3.1 million and IMC's net income was $0.

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter 2010 were $45.4 million, an increase of $16.0 million, or 54.5%, from the $29.4 million reported for the second quarter 2009.

U.S. revenues for the second quarter 2010 were $29.3 million, an increase of 11.1% from the $26.4 million reported for the second quarter 2009.

European revenues for the second quarter 2010 were $8.9 million, a 2,054% increase over the $0.4 million reported for the second quarter 2009.

Asia revenues for the second quarter 2010 were $5.2 million, an increase of $2.6 million, or 101.4%, from the $2.6 million reported for the second quarter 2009.

Rest of world revenues for the second quarter 2010 were $2.0 million.

Gross profit for the second quarter 2010 was $28.8 million, an increase of $8.9 million, or 44.5% over second quarter 2009 gross profit of $19.9 million. Second quarter 2010 gross margin of 63.5% was below second quarter 2009 gross margin of 67.9%; however gross margin increased sequentially 110 basis points over first quarter 2010 gross margin of 62.4%. The decrease in gross margin of 440 basis points over prior year second quarter is primarily due to geographic sales mix associated with our increased European business, which contributes lower gross margins. The U.S. gross margin for the second quarter 2010 was 71.4%, an increase from both prior year second quarter U.S. gross margin of 69.4% and first quarter 2010 gross margin of 69.9%, reflecting increased manufacturing efficiencies and reduced royalty burden, partially offset by U.S. price erosion.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter 2010 were $31.9 million, an increase of $6.2 million compared to second quarter 2009 of $25.7 million, and includes $5.7 million in operating expenses associated with the addition of the Company's newly acquired European operations. The second quarter 2010 includes $1.3 million in acquisition-related restructuring and transaction expenses. Excluding the acquisition-related restructuring and transaction expenses, total operating expense increased $4.9 million compared to second quarter 2009.

Research and development expenses for the second quarter 2010 were $4.9 million, an increase of $1.5 million compared to the second quarter 2009 R&D expenses of $3.4 million. Second quarter 2010 includes R&D expenses of $0.7 million that are related to the Company's new European operations.

In-process research and development expenses for the second quarter 2010 were $0.1 million, a decrease of $4.4 million compared to the second quarter 2009 IPR&D expense of $4.5 million.

Sales and marketing expenses for the second quarter 2010 were $17.1 million, an increase of $4.8 million compared to the second quarter 2009 sales and marketing expenses of $12.3 million. Second quarter 2010 includes sales and marketing expenses of $2.7 million that are related to the Company's new European operations.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter 2010 were $8.0 million, an increase of $2.5 million, compared to the second quarter 2009 G&A expenses of $5.5 million. Second quarter 2010 includes G&A expenses of $1.3 million related to the Company's new European operations.

Adjusted EBITDA was $3.8 million in the second quarter 2010, an increase of $1.3 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 million reported for the second quarter 2009.

Net loss for the second quarter 2010 was $3.0 million, or ($0.04) per share (basic and diluted), compared with a net loss of $6.3 million, or ($0.13) per share (basic and diluted) for the second quarter 2009.

Non-GAAP EPS for second quarter 2010 was $0.00 per share compared to ($0.04) per share reported in the second quarter 2009. Non-GAAP net earnings or (loss) excludes in-process research and development expenses and Scient'x acquisition-related expenses.

2010 Financial Guidance Update

The Company believes that in the second quarter of 2010, U.S. and European spine market growth slowed from their historical levels. Although we are confident that demographics will lead to continued long-term growth of the global spine market, as a result of the deceleration of the market, the Company has revised its internal growth projections for 2010 to reflect current market conditions. The revised guidance reflects an annual growth rate that the Company believes continues to outperform the spine market.

Revising full year 2010 financial guidance, the Company anticipates pro forma combined annual revenues of $188 million to $193 million, $21 million to $24 million in pro forma combined adjusted EBITDA and positive non-GAAP EPS for the full year 2010, excluding acquisition-related expenses. The Company is issuing this guidance to reflect the 2010 pro forma combined effect on a 12-month basis, as if the Scient'x acquisition closed January 1, 2010. The revised annual pro forma revenue guidance reflects annual growth of 10% to 13% over pro forma 2009 revenues of $170.8 million.

On a GAAP reporting basis, the Company expects full year 2010 consolidated revenues in the range of $177 million to $182 million, adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $21 million to $24 million, and positive non-GAAP EPS, excluding acquisition-related expenses. The GAAP reporting basis guidance reflects the actual closing of the Scient'x acquisition at the end of March 2010 and the inclusion of Scient'x's actual operating results, effective April 1, 2010, into the Company's consolidated statement of operations and consolidated statement of cash flows. The GAAP reporting basis guidance also excludes IMC revenues of $3.1 million from first quarter 2010 as IMC was divested in the second quarter of 2010 and reported as discontinued operations.

As previously announced, the Scient'x transaction closed on March 26, 2010. The Company has absorbed acquisition-related expenses that had a negative impact to GAAP EPS in the first and second quarters of 2010 and expects to absorb additional acquisition-related expenses in the third and fourth quarters of 2010.

Non-GAAP Information for non-GAAP earnings and Adjusted EBITDA

Non-GAAP earnings included in this press release is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure that represents net income (loss) excluding the effects of in-process research and development expenses, acquisition-related expenses and litigation settlement expenses. Management does not consider these expenses when it makes certain evaluations of the operations of the Company. Non-GAAP earnings, as defined above, may not be similar to non-GAAP earnings measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA included in this press release is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) excluding the effects of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and other income or expense items, such as in-process research and development expense and acquisition-related expenses. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, may not be similar to adjusted EBITDA measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under GAAP.

Though management finds GAAP-based earnings or loss and adjusted EBITDA useful for evaluating aspects of the Company's business, its reliance on these measures are limited because excluded items often have a material effect on the Company's earnings and earnings per common share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses non-GAAP earnings and adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with GAAP earnings and earnings per common share measures. The Company believes that non-GAAP earnings and adjusted EBITDA provides 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 base-line for assessing the future earnings potential of the Company. While the GAAP results are more complete, the Company prefers to allow investors to have these supplemental metrics since, with reconciliation to GAAP, they may provide greater insight into the Company's financial results.
