Strategic Transformation Accelerating to Produce Long-Term Growth, Significant Margin Expansion, and Consistent Cash Flow

Alachua FLA., January 5, 2018 – RTI Surgical, Inc. (Nasdaq: RTIX), a global surgical implant company, today outlined its 2018 guidance and long-term financial goals.

Based on its recent financial results and current business outlook, RTI has developed the following financial guidance for 2018:

  • The Company expects full year revenues in the range of $280 million and $290 million.
  • RTI expects full year EBITDA to be in the range of $32 million to $38 million.

The Company noted the following assumptions are included in its guidance:

  • Relatively stable market conditions and regulatory environment;
  • Positive revenue contribution from the acquisition of Zyga Technology – announced January 4th, 2018;
  • Ongoing positive impact of efforts to reduce complexity and implement operational excellence; and
  • Continued marketing of map3® cellular allogeneic bone graft and minimal negative revenue impact related to recent FDA warning letter.

“We expect 2018 will be a year of continued progress with the accelerating implementation of our strategic transformation plans,” said Camille Farhat, President and CEO. “Our guidance reflects the early results of our initiatives and the ongoing investments necessary to produce sustainable profitable growth and improved cash flow.”

The Company also outlined long-term financial goals that are expected to be achieved within five years:

  • Expand revenue to more than $500 million
  • Double EBITDA margin to more than 20%

Farhat explained, “We expect the initiatives we began to reduce complexity and drive operational excellence in 2017 to produce improving margins and cash flow in our tissue focused operations in the coming years. This expected improvement in financial performance will allow us to fund organic and acquisitive growth in our spine focused operations. We are committed to driving significant financial improvements and increasing long-term shareholder value.”
