Bioventus and Misonix Definitive Merger Agreement:
- On July 29, 2021, Bioventus Inc. (NASDAQ: BVS) (“Bioventus”), a global leader in innovations for active healing, and Misonix entered into a definitive merger agreement by which Bioventus will acquire Misonix in a cash-and-stock transaction for total consideration of approximately $518 million. The transaction will position the combined entity as a leading, pure-play regenerative medicine and orthopedics company serving a $15 billion total addressable market with significant growth opportunities and scale across a range of care settings, geographies, and product categories.
- Under the terms of the agreement, Misonix stockholders will have the right to elect to receive for each share of Misonix common stock they hold either (i) 1.6839 shares of Bioventus class A common stock or (ii) $28.00 in cash, subject to proration such that the cash amount payable by Bioventus in the transaction will be equal to $10.50 per share of Misonix common stock outstanding shortly prior to the completion of the transaction. The $28.00 per-share value for Misonix represents a 25% premium to Misonix’s 30-day volume weighted average share price as of the close of trading on July 27, 2021. Upon completion of the transaction, Misonix stockholders will own an approximately 25% stake in the combined company, and Bioventus stockholders will own an approximately 75% stake in the combined company, each on a fully diluted basis.
- The transaction, which has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of Bioventus and Misonix, is expected to close in late 2021, subject to the receipt of regulatory and shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions. Additional information regarding the proposed transaction may be found in the “Investor Relations” section of Misonix’s website and in subsequent Company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) at www.sec.gov.
“Misonix concluded fiscal 2021 with an outstanding fourth quarter, which enabled us to deliver all-time record annual product revenue that exceeded the high-end of our guidance range for the fiscal year,” stated Stavros Vizirgianakis, Chief Executive Officer of Misonix. “The continued recovery of the global healthcare industry, combined with the success of our teams in capitalizing on accelerating demand for our proprietary ultrasonic products and procedural solutions, resulted in year-over-year revenue growth of 43.5% in the fourth quarter and 18.5% for the full year. In addition, the meaningful actions we have taken over the last twenty-four months to strengthen our supply chain enabled us to successfully navigate near-term pressures impacting companies worldwide, while maintaining our attractive gross margin above 70%.”
Mr. Vizirgianakis continued, “During the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter, a significant rebound in elective procedural volumes from the pandemic peak last June drove a 97.0% increase in total surgical revenue compared with last year’s fourth quarter, including 97.0% growth domestically and 97.2% growth internationally. Reflecting the continued strong adoption of our neXus Ultrasonic Surgical System, Misonix placed or sold over 250 neXus units in fiscal 2021, well ahead of our guidance of 200-unit placements.
“Though our wound business remained challenged throughout most of fiscal 2021, we believe that the value proposition of our ultrasonic wound debridement technology and wound care solutions remains strong and we expect to see a gradual improvement in this business over the coming quarters. We are pleased with the stronger-than-anticipated recovery in our wound business in the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter, with total wound revenue rising 7.9% for the quarter.
“In closing, I am extraordinarily proud of our talented Misonix team and what we have accomplished over the past five-plus years. Together, we have transformed Misonix from an under-appreciated company with valuable, yet ineffectively utilized, proprietary technology, into a rapidly-growing, world class organization with a leading portfolio of ultrasonic medical devices and regenerative products. The proposed merger with Bioventus is a transformational step for Misonix in our evolution, and one that we believe creates significant value for the shareholders, employees and patients of both companies. Together, we will have the scale and financial flexibility to accelerate our growth and maximize the many significant opportunities we see across the business over the near- and long-term to disrupt large markets and expand share.”

Joe Dwyer, Chief Financial Officer, added, “We are very pleased with our team’s success in delivering strong fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and full year financial results. Misonix’s fiscal 2021 full year revenue increased 18.5% year-over-year to a record $74.0 million, while full year operating expenses were essentially flat, compared to the prior year period, reflecting the success of the various initiatives we implemented over the last year to streamline our cost structure and improve efficiencies. On a pro forma basis, assuming that we had completed the acquisition of Solsys Medical at the beginning of fiscal 2020, revenue growth was still positive at a 4.5% growth rate for fiscal 2021 versus fiscal 2020, despite the impact of COVID-19. Top line growth, combined with healthy gross margins of over 70% and lower operating expenses, resulted in a 74% year-over-year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA to a loss of $3.2 million in fiscal 2021, compared to a loss of $12.3 million in fiscal 2020. We continue to have a strong balance sheet with approximately $31 million in cash at June 30, 2021. Looking ahead, we look forward to our pending merger with Bioventus and continue to work with their team to seamlessly bring our companies together and to deliver on the value of this transformative combination.”
In light of the Company’s proposed transaction with Bioventus, Misonix will not be conducting a conference call and webcast to review its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and full year financial results, nor is the Company providing financial guidance for fiscal year 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines EBITDA as the net income (loss) as reported under GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense and income tax expense (benefit). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus non-cash stock compensation expense and M&A transaction fees. Historically, the Company excluded bad debt expense from its calculation of Adjusted EBITDA by adding bad debt expense to EBITDA. Beginning with the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company will no longer exclude bad debt expense from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, and prior comparative periods will be adjusted accordingly.
The Company has also provided below pro-forma revenue, which is also a non-GAAP financial measurement. The Company acquired the operations of Solsys Medical at the end of its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019. The Company has presented pro forma revenue to show revenue on a comparable basis as if Solsys had been acquired at the beginning of the comparative periods presented.
We present these non-GAAP measures because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate the operating performance of companies in our industry. We also believe that these measures are useful to our management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.
