K2M Reports 3Q18 Revenue of $71.4MM, +13.9% vs. 3Q17 -


K2M reported 3Q18 revenue of $71.4MM, +13.9% vs. 3Q17. With the company’s acquisition by Stryker now complete, there was no earnings press release or analyst call for the quarter.

However, K2M’s SEC 10-Q filing did note brisk business with new surgeons in the U.S., driven in part by products like YUKON Occipital-Cervico-Thoracic (OCT) spinal fixation and EVEREST systems, the OZARK anterior cervical plate and increased usage of CASCADIA interbody products. Offsets in the quarter were unfavorable price changes and decreased usage of the MESA deformity spinal system.

International revenue growth was driven by new set investments by distributors in South Africa and Japan, as well as increased surgical activity in Ireland. The transition to direct agent markets in Spain and Portugal also had a beneficial impact.
