Xtant Taps New CEO to Lead Turnaround Effort -

Xtant reported 3Q19 revenue of USD $15.7MM, -8.9% vs. 3Q18.


  • In October 2019, Xtant selected Sean Browne to be the new President and CEO of the company
  • The company is focused on launching new products and reengaging with its distributor network
  • Spinal hardware sales declines driven, in part, by reduced demand stemming from the termination of an advisory agreement as well as the continuing termination of distributors that did not meet internal margin contribution parameters
  • To offset hardware sales declines, Xtant recently launched three new products: the Intice-C Titanium cervical interbody spacer, Atrix-C Union cervical interbody spacer and the Calix-C PC plasma coated PEEK implant
  • The company is seeking to improve operational efficiency through upgrading their existing enterprise resource planning platform, and expects to complete the first and second phases of the upgrade by 1H20
  • Xtant has been granted a planning period through October 4, 2020 to regain compliance and maintain their listing on the New York Stock Exchange
  • ORTHOWORLD projects Xtant full year 2019 revenue of $65.4MM, -9.5% vs. 2018
