SeaSpine: Bottom Line Fundamentals Continue To Soften

Summary The operating losses continue for SPNE, widening the spread between top-to-bottom-line performance. Investors have continued to punish the stock in H2 FY22 despite the broad medtech sector catching a strong bid. Without the return on capital or free cash flow on hand, SPNE doesn't align with our US equity strategy. Net-net I reiterate that SPNE is a hold and reinstate the $4.58 valuation. Investment Summary Following its latest set of numbers I've reiterated the hold rating on SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (SPNE) and note that little has changed in the investment debate. In the previous analysis I conducted on the company (see: here) I noted there were several downside risks that were yet to be fully realized at the company level. Most notably, the lack of profitability coupled with consistent free cash flow ("FCF") burn were the most unattractive features at the time, seeing as we're looking to capture profitable, quality names in medtech this year. From the previous analysis, before the Q2 FY22 earnings, the following points were noted: Operating leverage had averaged down to -1.4x in the past 2 years. SPNE's harvested zero return from its invested capital and has realized a series of losses on investment instead. Investors had realized a cumulative $21.80 loss in FCF/share from Q3 F19-Q1 FY22. Multiple downside targets were in place with respect to price distribution and valuations. From the most recent set of numbers, not much has changed to this outlook. With this in mind, I continue to rate SPNE a hold with a $4.58 valuation. SPNE Q2 earnings again soft The company came in with another set of mixed numbers, with upsides versus consensus at the top-line only. Revenue of $56.3 million ("mm") was up c.18.5% YoY and pulled down to a gross profit of $37.9mm, up 24% YoY as well. Segmentally, growth was strong as well, with a 22.8% YoY expansion in the spinal implants and enabling business. Exhibit 1. Revenue distribution evenly split between both segments. Top-line growth continues to impress with double-digit gains in turnover with each segment It's the inability to bring this growth to the bottom-line and FCF that are mitigating factors in the investment debate Data: Adapted from SPNE Q2 FY2210-Q However, it also printed an operating loss of $14.53mm, behind the loss of $11.1mm the year prior and brought this down to a net loss of $13.9mm of loss per share of $0.38. As seen in Exhibit 2, the spread in performance from top-bottom line growth continues to widen for SPNE on a sequential basis. Whilst revenue continues to tick up since listing in 2015, bottom-line fundamentals haven't enjoyed the same upswing. The gap in operating and FCF losses is now near its widest on TTM figures, whereas the realized FCF yield has tumbled to its lowest mark on record. These are unattractive features in the current investment landscape, much less so when looking ahead. Ideally, I'd be looking for SPNE to narrow this gap in operating performance seen below, versus trends widening. This is particularly important as the cost of capital rises and abundant liquidity dries up. Should the company need to raise additional cash from the ongoing operating losses, it would have to head to the high-yield debt capital markets, or raise additional dilutive equity, itself commanding a premium at present. Exhibit 2. Operating performance continues to widen from top-bottom line on a sequential basis The 'gap' isn't narrowing, and this is a risk in the forward-looking economic landscape Realized FCF yield is a concern when benchmarked to corporate value and is unsupportive of a bullish view. This is whilst SPNE's market cap drops to its lowest marks since listing.
