CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 28 July 2023 – Medacta Group SA (“Medacta”, SIX:MOVE) announces today the first semester 2023 preliminary unaudited revenue.

Francesco Siccardi, CEO of Medacta, commented: “I am very pleased with the excellent sales performance recorded in the first part of the year, thanks to an improved geographic mix and a solid growth of all business lines. This performance underlines the robustness of our strategic choices and provide us the opportunity to update our full year guidance, leveraging the very positive trend of the first half.

In the first semester 2023 we delivered strong organic growth, with a significant gain of new customers across all geographies and business lines. This is a result of an effective commercial development, in a market that is progressively recovering the accumulated backlog in some key areas (mainly in Australia and US). The continued commitment to medical education, through in-person scientific dedicated events and our M.O.R.E. Institute programs for surgeons, is a key factor to deliver and maintain our good performance. Finally, a strong supply chain sustained the growth, being able to serve both existing and new customers, without disruptions. 

Revenue By geography and product line

Every market recorded a positive performance thanks to an extremely positive trend in Europe, a progressive recovery in North America and the end of Covid-19 restrictions in Australia.

Revenue in EMEA grew c.c. 24.0%, to Euro 123.1 million. Strong growth across all the different countries, with significant contribution from both existing and new customers.

Revenue in North America increased 17.9% c.c. to Euro 76.5 million, thanks to a solid recovery of sales volume in existing customers and through new customer acquisition, especially in Knee and Shoulder.

Revenue in Asia Pacific grew by 22.0% c.c. to Euro 51.4 million. In Australia, we had a positive contribution from the end of Covid-19 restrictions, the “Public in Private” Covid-19 recovery plan and an increase of new customers.  Japan continues with a very positive growth trend across all business lines, partially offset by expected government price reductions (especially in Spine).

Revenue in RoW was Euro 4.2 million with an increase of 9.7% c.c.

Below we report the first semester 2023 sales break-down by geographic area:

Our Extremities business line reported an increase in revenue of 38.7% c.c., to Euro 17.9 million, primarily attributable to Shoulder supported by Medacta Shoulder System and Technologies (MyShoulder and NextAR). Sportsmed business continues to develop with expected acceleration in 2H.
