CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 29 July 2022 - Medacta Group SA (“Medacta”, SIX:MOVE) announces today the first semester 2022 preliminary unaudited revenue.


Francesco Siccardi, CEO of Medacta, commented: “I am very pleased with the revenue performance delivered in the semester, despite the persistent challenging conditions in some geographies. We will continue to prioritize our future growth through the execution of our strategy, while adopting initiatives to mitigate impacts of macroeconomic and geopolitical developments.


In the first semester 2022, innovation continued through all business lines. Following 1,000 NextARTM surgeries performed worldwide in the limited market release phase, we reached 100 NextARTM platforms in the market. This milestone was driven by the full market release of the NextARTM Shoulder application in May 2022. In June 2022, NextARTM further enlarged its worldwide outreach with the approval in Japan. The NextARTM platform is offered as a hardware system with limited capital investment and single-use instrumentation at a low cost per case and offers the ability to host software for multiple applications for both joint and spine. The platform represents an optimal solution worldwide and particularly for U.S. Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs).

Our Marketing and Medical Education Programs continued, and we further expanded our network of expert surgeons with more than 500 reference centers active worldwide. In the first semester the release of Covid-related restrictions allowed for a re-establishment of national and international congressional activities.

In the first semester 2022, the expansion of our salesforce continued across all the geographies and business lines.

Revenue from our Hip products increased to Euro 101.4 million, or 11.1% on a constant currency basis; the good momentum was driven by the AMIS® strategy, supported by further adoption of the Bikini technique, and roll-out of new products.

Revenue from our Knee offerings were Euro 77.2 million, an increase of 16.1% on a constant currency basis, thanks to the continuous customer acquisition on Kinematic Alignment, Efficiency single-use instruments and GMK® Sphere implants.

Our Extremities business line reported an increase in revenue of 35.6% on a constant currency basis to Euro 12.9 million; the growth was driven by the acquisition of new customers through the completeness of the Medacta Shoulder System, supported by MyShoulder® and NextARTM personalized solutions, and the expansion of the Sports Med product offering.

Revenue from our Spine offering increased by 16.0% on a constant currency basis to Euro 19.8 million, driven by the expansion of MIS Platform and MySpine® offering.

In the first semester 2022, the geographic mix from prior period shows a shift from APAC to Europe mainly due to Covid-19 restrictions in Australia.

Revenue in Europe registered an increase of 22.0% on a constant currency basis to Euro 94.4 million. The growth was driven by customer acquisition, together with normalization of surgical activities.

Revenue in North America increased to Euro 64.2 million, or 10.8% on a constant currency basis, thanks to our customer acquisition, which was limited by the impact of Covid-19 and hospital staffing shortages especially in the first months of the year.

Revenue in Asia Pacific grew by 3.7% on a constant currency basis to Euro 44.8 million, mainly driven by the attainment of new customers in Japan, which was limited by significant pandemic restrictions in Australia in the first quarter of the semester. Japan faced government price reduction late in H1.

Revenue in RoW was Euro 7.9 million, an increase of 31.8% on a constant currency basis, thanks mainly to increased purchases from stocking distributors in Latin America.

2022 Outlook

Thanks to the positive business performance of the first semester, full-year revenue is expected in the top end of the original guidance range of Euro 400 million to Euro 414 million, at constant currency.
