Product / Company Performance

Strength in Knee Replacement and Sports Medicine Drives Smith+Nephew Growth -

Smith+Nephew reported 3Q19 orthopedic revenue of USD $852MM, +4.7% vs. 3Q18.

 

  • Updated 2019 full year guidance to the range of $5,095.3MM (+3.9%) to $5,144.3MM (+4.9%)
  • Knees and hips rebounded after a soft 2Q19, assisted by double-digit year over year growth from NAVIO and assets acquired from Brainlab in May 2019
  • Company sees long-term opportunities in use of tech and big data, including mobile apps, wearable devices and artificial intelligence
  • New OR30 dual mobility hip with OXINIUM bearing surface was submitted to FDA earlier this year; once cleared, will be one of the company’s largest product launches ever. Trauma grew moderately, driven by the global rollout of the EVOS system that expanded to wrist plates in 3Q and will include large plates in the future; INTERTAN nails grew in the double-digits and were a meaningful contributor to trauma segment growth
  • Sports medicine grew slightly above market average (Note: we include REGENTEN in our Orthobiologics segment instead of sports medicine); sports medicine enabling technology products grew 0.8% vs. 3Q18, reversing a string of negative quarters for products that have been under pressure since 2016
  • The outsized growth for orthobiologics is due to revenue included from Smith+Nephew’s April 2019 acquisition of Osiris Therapeutics; per leadership, REGENTEN was an important driver for the company’s U.S. sales growth
  • The company is nearing its first development milestone after the acquisition of Atracsys, whose fusionTrack 500 optical tracking camera will be a core enabling technology for SNN’s robotics-assisted surgical platform expected to be available in early to mid-2020; further, with the acquisition of Brainlab’s joint replacement business, SNN has an installed base of 500 surgical navigation units and expects to introduce a new hip application in 2020
  • ORTHOWORLD projects Smith+Nephew full year 2019 orthopedic revenue of $3,622MM, +4.6% vs. 2018
