The Company announced preliminary third quarter results assuming interested individuals would be focused on the U.S. presidential election the week of November 3 and plans to disclose its full third quarter financial results the week of November 9.

      • U.S Orthobiologics revenues are expected to reflect an increase of 8% to 10%

“We are pleased with our performance during the third quarter against a backdrop of continuing challenges and restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Keith Valentine, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our execution on planned launches of differentiated new products, such as the recent limited commercial launches of our Explorer™ TO Expandable Interbody Device and NorthStar OCT systems, was a key driver of our third quarter revenue growth and, coupled with the strength of our cash position, has enabled us to attract new distribution as other companies struggle. While our surgical volumes have not returned to pre-pandemic levels and we remain cautious about further declines from current depressed levels, we have never been more confident in our ability to take further market share and eventually return to the double-digit revenue growth we saw in 2019.”

2020 Financial Guidance
SeaSpine expects revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 to be in the range of $47.0 million to $48.0 million, reflecting growth of approximately 7% to 10% over fourth quarter 2019 revenue.
