DURHAM, NC and FARMINGDALE, NY – October 18, 2021Bioventus Inc. (Nasdaq: BVS) and Misonix, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSON) (“Misonix”), today announced an election deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on October 25, 2021 (the “Election Deadline”) for stockholders of Misonix to elect the form of consideration they wish to receive for their shares of Misonix common stock in connection with the proposed merger of Oyster Merger Sub I, Inc., a newly-formed, wholly-owned subsidiary of Bioventus (“Merger Sub I”), with and into Misonix, immediately followed by the merger of Misonix with and into Oyster Merger Sub II, LLC, another newly-formed, wholly-owned subsidiary of Bioventus (“Merger Sub II”), pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of July 29, 2021, by and among Bioventus, Merger Sub I, Merger Sub II and Misonix (the “Mergers”). If the Election Deadline is delayed or extended for any reason, Bioventus and Misonix will promptly announce the delay and, when determined, the rescheduled Election Deadline.

As previously announced, as a result of the Mergers, each share of Misonix common stock outstanding at the effective time of the Mergers will be converted into the right to receive 1.6839 shares of Bioventus class A common stock (“stock consideration”) or $28.00 in cash (“cash consideration”), subject to proration and reallocation as described in the Merger Agreement and the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus (for more information on the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus, see “Additional Information and Where to Find It” below).  Misonix stockholders are entitled to elect whether they wish to receive (a) the stock consideration for all of their shares of Misonix common stock, (b) the cash consideration for all of their shares of Misonix common stock, (c) the cash consideration for some shares of Misonix common stock and the stock consideration for the other shares of Misonix common stock or (d) make no election with respect to all of the shares of Misonix common stock held, subject in each case, to proration and reallocation as described in the Merger Agreement and the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus.

Record holders of Misonix common stock should have already received a Letter of Election and Transmittal, which permits the stockholder to make an election as to the type of merger consideration.  Record holders are reminded that if they wish to make an effective election, they must complete and return their Letter of Election and Transmittal, along with their stock certificate(s) (if any) and any other documents noted in the instructions to the Letter of Election and Transmittal, to American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the Exchange Agent, no later than the Election Deadline, which is 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 25, 2021.

Misonix stockholders who hold their shares in “street name” through a bank, brokerage firm or other nominee (including through The Depository Trust Company), should have received instructions from the bank, brokerage firm or other nominee that is holding their shares of Misonix common stock with instructions for making elections. Election forms must be returned to the broker, bank or nominee in time for it to respond prior to the Election Deadline, therefore, applicable Misonix stockholders are encouraged to pay close attention to, and abide by, any election deadlines provided by the bank, brokerage firm or other nominee holding their shares, as that deadline may be earlier than the Election Deadline described above. Misonix stockholders who have no received these instructions are encouraged to contact the bank, brokerage firm or other nominee holding their shares of Misonix common stock as soon as possible.

Misonix stockholders who do not submit a valid election by the Election Deadline (or who submit a valid election indicating no election), will be deemed to have made no election and will therefore receive the cash consideration or the stock consideration or a combination of both, depending on the elections made by other Misonix stockholders (as described in the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus on pages 137-138 under the section entitled “The Merger—Merger Consideration—Proration and Reallocation”).

Misonix stockholders who have questions or need assistance to complete and return the Letter of Election and Transmittal or who want additional copies of the Letter of Election and Transmittal, should contact the Information Agent, D.F. King & Co., Inc. as follows:

DUROLANE Among High-Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid Treatments Linked to Significant Improvements in Knee Osteoarthritis Pain by American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons

DURHAM, NC – September 20, 2021 – Bioventus Inc., (Nasdaq: BVS) (“Bioventus” or the “Company”), a leader in innovations for active healing, announced that the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) recently released updated clinical practice guidelines (CPG) indicating that high molecular weight cross-linked hyaluronic treatments, including Bioventus treatment DUROLANE, showed statistically significant improvement in certain knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients. The recommendation follows a review of 28 studies assessing intra-articular hyaluronic acid (HA) injections when compared to controls.

The CPG states that viscosupplementation, in the form of intra-articular HA injections, can represent a viable option for some patients who failed other treatments when appropriately indicated. Patients with low to moderate arthritic knees (Kellgren Lawrence (KL) I-III) have better results than those with severely affected knees (KL IV). In addition, the CPG highlights statistically significant results that were associated with high molecular weight cross-linked HA, but not with mid or low molecular weight HA.

DUROLANE is a single-injection osteoarthritis (OA) treatment that is lightly cross-linked and has the highest reported molecular weight of all US-approved HA products.1, 2  

“These updated guidelines from AAOS now match how we have always recommended the utilization of our HA products for knee OA pain,” said John Nosenzo, Chief Commercial Officer, Bioventus. “Now patients and physicians will have even more confidence in using HA therapies with high molecular weight such as DUROLANE.”

“The updated clinical practice guidelines from AAOS better aligns with the clinical practice and experience of most physicians. HA injections, including DUROLANE, are a viable option for patients who fail treatments such as NSAID’s, weight loss, and exercise,” said Vinod Dasa MD. “We applaud the Academy for recognizing the patient population that benefits from these treatments to manage their low to moderate OA knee pain.”

DUROLANE, which has more Level 1 clinical studies than any other single-injection HA, has demonstrated providing greater reduction in OA knee pain versus Synvisc-One®.3 It has longer lasting pain relief versus a steroid injection, is safe for repeated courses of therapy, and repeated use of DUROLANE does not increase the incidence of adverse events.4, 5 Visit www.durolane.com for more information.

Indications for Use: DUROLANE is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacological therapy or simple analgesics, e.g. acetaminophen. Do not inject DUROLANE with knee joint infections, infections, or skin disease in the area of the injection site. Do not administer to patients with known hypersensitivity (allergy) to HA preparations. Risks can include transient pain or swelling at the injection site. DUROLANE has not been tested in pregnant or lactating women, or children.

NOTE: The above indications presented are for the US market; indications may vary by country. Consult with your local Bioventus representative for approved use within your region of interest.

Bioventus Proceeds with Option Structure Agreement with CartiHeal

DURHAM, NC – August 30, 2021 – Bioventus Inc. (Nasdaq: BVS) (“Bioventus” or the “Company”), a global leader in innovations for active healing, has elected to make a $50 million escrow payment pursuant to its Option and Equity Purchase Agreement with CartiHeal Ltd., signaling its intent to move forward with an acquisition of CartiHeal. The Company’s decision came following its review of a statistical analysis report of the pivotal clinical trial of the Agili-C implant, reimbursement coding analysis and significant market diligence including surgeon interviews with respect to Agili-C’s commercialization opportunity and ultimate market potential.

The Company’s obligation to consummate the Potential Transaction is subject to the exercise by the Company of the call option provided under the Option Agreement, or the exercise by CartiHeal of its put option provided under the Option Agreement. The put option may only be exercised following premarket approval (PMA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Agili-C implant, which was granted Breakthrough Device Designation by the FDA last year, and the satisfaction of certain other conditions pursuant to the Option Agreement. Following the exercise of such option rights, the closing of the Potential Transaction is subject to certain customary conditions to closing. CartiHeal plans to submit the clinical module of their PMA later this year.

Agili-C is indicated for the treatment of a cartilage and osteochondral defects (defined as ICRS grade III or above) in the knee joint, in patients without severe osteoarthritis (Kellgren-Lawrence (KOOS) grade 0-3). The implant is designed to provide a cost effective solution in patients indicated for Agili-C.

“The robust data generated from the pivotal clinical trial, a randomized controlled trial with Agili-C, demonstrated superiority over surgical standard of care, microfracture and debridement, in KOOS overall compared to baseline. We believe this product could be a strong alternative for the approximately 650,000 US patients annually receiving microfracture or debridement along with other cartilage treatment options,” said Alessandra Pavesio, Senior Vice President and Chief Science Officer, Bioventus. “In combination with our HA products, Agili-C represents an exciting potential new offering for our portfolio designed to address the spectrum of osteoarthritis disease.”

In the next several quarters, Bioventus plans to continue to work closely with the CartiHeal team in advance of potential FDA approval to be ready to execute on commercialization and reimbursement activities should the Potential Transaction be consummated.

Bioventus Invests in Trice Medical Minimally Invasive Technologies

Bioventus Also Agrees to OUS Distribution and Co-Development Relationships

DURHAM, NC – August 25, 2021 – Bioventus Inc. (Nasdaq: BVS) (“Bioventus” or the “Company”), a global leader in innovations for active healing, has completed a strategic investment in Trice Medical, Inc., a company focused on developing and commercializing minimally invasive technologies for sports medicine and orthopedic surgical procedures. In conjunction with Bioventus leading the Series D funding round, the Company will receive exclusive sales and distribution rights to Trice’s products outside of the US.

Bioventus and Trice have also agreed to enter into a co-development arrangement to explore the integration of Trice technologies with Bioventus’ current and future peripheral nerve stimulation (“PNS”) offerings of StimRouter® and TalisMann in order to accelerate adoption of both companies’ products.

Trice, founded in 2011 and based in Malvern, Pennsylvania, combines their handheld arthroscope and portable ultrasound visualization technologies with the company’s differentiated surgical devices to treat a range of sports medicine and orthopedic conditions, including tendinopathy, planter fasciitis and carpel tunnel, in order to improve patient recovery time, reduce pain, minimize scarring and move surgical procedures out of higher cost points of care.

“Trice’s established and growing presence in sports medicine and orthopedics is directly aligned with our strategy of expanding our offerings across these core Bioventus call points,” said Chris Yamamoto, Senior Vice President of Business Development & Strategy, Bioventus. “Our investment will not only fund the ongoing growth of Trice, but also is expected to allow both companies to further validate the merits of a combination.”

In connection with the investment, Yamamoto has been elected to serve on the Board of Trice. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net Sales and International Net Sales Growth on a Constant Currency Basis

Net Sales and International Net Sales Growth on a Constant Currency Basis is a non-GAAP measure, which is calculated by translating current and prior year results at the same foreign currency exchange rate. Constant currency can be presented for numerous GAAP measures, but is most commonly used by management to facilitate the comparison sales in foreign currencies to prior periods and analyze net sales performance without the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Organic Revenue Growth

The Company defines the term “organic revenue” as revenue in the stated period excluding the impact from business acquisitions and divestitures. The Company uses the related term “organic revenue growth” to refer to the financial performance metric of comparing the stated period organic revenue with the reported revenue of the corresponding period in the prior year. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with our GAAP financial measures, allows the Company and its investors to better measure the Company’s performance and evaluate long-term performance trends. Organic revenue growth also facilitates easier comparisons of the Company’s performance with prior and future periods and relative comparisons to its peers. The Company excludes the effect of acquisitions and divestitures because these activities can have a significant impact on the Company's reported results, which the Company believes makes comparisons of long-term performance trends difficult for management and investors.

Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Expense, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income, and Non-GAAP Earnings per share of Class A Common Stock.

We present Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Expense, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income, and Non-GAAP Earnings per share of Class A Common Stock, all non-GAAP financial measures, to supplement our financial reporting, because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization, provision of income taxes and interest expense (income), adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include equity compensation, COVID-19 benefits, net, succession and transition charges, foreign currency impact, acquisitions and integration costs, inventory step-up costs, equity loss in unconsolidated investments, change in fair value of contingent consideration, impairments related to variable interest entity and other non-recurring costs. See the table below for a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties often use it in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to ours. Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections.

Our management uses Non-GAAP Gross Profit, Non-GAAP Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Expense, Non-GAAP Operating Margin and Non-GAAP Net Income principally as measures of our operating performance and believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to better understand the long term recurring performance of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results to those of peer companies. Our management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections.

We define Non-GAAP Gross Profit as gross profit, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold and acquisition costs in cost of goods sold. We define Non-GAAP Gross Margin as the calculated ratio of Non-GAAP Gross Profit to net sales. See the table below for a reconciliation of gross profit and gross margin to Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Gross Margin.

We define Non-GAAP Operating Income as operating income, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization included in operating expenses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, COVID-19 expense, COVID-19 income, succession and transition charges, acquisition and integration costs, inventory step-up costs, impairments related to variable interest entity and other non-recurring costs. Non-GAAP Operating Margin is defined as defined as Non-GAAP Operating Income divided by net sales. See the table below for a reconciliation of Operating Income and operating margin to Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin.

We define Non-GAAP Operating Expense as operating expenses, adjusted to exclude certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include amortization included in operating expenses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, COVID-19 expense, COVID-19 income, succession and transition charges, acquisition and integration costs, impairments related to variable interest entity and other non-recurring costs. See the table below for a reconciliation of Operating Expenses to Non-GAAP Operating Expenses.

These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization included in operating expenses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, COVID-19 expense, COVID-19 income, succession and transition charges, acquisition and integration costs, inventory step-up costs, impairments related to variable interest entity and other non-recurring costs.  See the table below for a reconciliation of Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income.

We define Non-GAAP Earnings per Class A share as Earnings per Class A share, adjusted for the impact of certain cash, non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include depreciation and amortization included in the cost of goods sold, amortization included in operating expenses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, succession and transition charges, acquisition and integration costs, inventory step-up costs, impairments related to variable interest entity and other non-recurring costs, divided by weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding during the period.

Selected preliminary financial results for the three months ended July 3, 2021

This press release presents preliminary results, for the periods presented, of Bioventus Inc., including Bioventus LLC, the predecessor of Bioventus Inc. for financial reporting purposes.

Included above are certain estimated preliminary unaudited financial results for the three months ended July 3, 2021 and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. We have provided ranges, rather than specific amounts, for the three months ended July 3, 2021 because these results are preliminary and subject to change, and there is a possibility that our actual results may differ materially from these preliminary estimates. These ranges are based on the information available to us as of the date of this announcement.

Our independent registered public accounting firm has not conducted a review of, and does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to, these estimated preliminary results. It is possible that we or our independent registered public accounting firm may identify items that would require us to make adjustments to the preliminary estimates set forth below as we complete our financial statements and that our actual results may differ materially from these preliminary estimates. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on these preliminary estimates. These preliminary estimates are not necessarily indicative of any future period and should be read together with “Risk Factors,” “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” “Selected Financial Data,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our previous reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

All statements contained in this press release that do not relate to matters of historical fact should be considered forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements concerning our preliminary financial results for the three months ended July 3, 2021 and the Company’s financial guidance and expected financial performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “aim,” “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “contemplate,” “continue,” “could,” “due,” “estimate,” “expect,” “goal,” “intend,” “may,” “objective,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “positioned,” “seek,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would” and other similar expressions that are predictions of or indicate future events and future trends, or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in this press release include, but are not limited to, risks to our business as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; our dependence on a limited number of products; our ability to develop, acquire and commercialize new products, line extensions or expanded indications; the continued and future acceptance of our existing portfolio of products and any new products, line extensions or expanded indications by physicians, patients, third-party payers and others in the medical community; our ability to differentiate the hyaluronic acid (“HA”) viscosupplementation therapies we own or distribute from alternative therapies for the treatment of osteoarthritic; the proposed down-classification of non-invasive bone growth stimulators, including our Exogen system, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"); our ability to achieve and maintain adequate levels of coverage and/or reimbursement for our products, the procedures using our products, or any future products we may seek to commercialize, including any potential changes by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the manner in which our HA viscosupplementation products are reimbursed, our ability to complete acquisitions or successfully integrate new businesses, products or technologies in a cost-effective and non-disruptive manner; competition against other companies; the negative impact on our ability to market our HA products due to the reclassification of HA products from medical devices to drugs in the United States by the FDA; our ability to attract, retain and motivate our senior management and qualified personnel; our ability to continue to research, develop and manufacture our products if our facilities are damaged or become inoperable; failure to comply with the extensive government regulations related to our products and operations; enforcement actions if we engage in improper claims submission practices or in improper marketing or promotion of our products; the FDA regulatory process and our ability to obtain and maintain required regulatory clearances and approvals; failure to comply with the government regulations that apply to our human cells, tissues and cellular or tissue-based products; the clinical studies of any of our future products that do not produce results necessary to support regulatory clearance or approval in the United States or elsewhere; and the other risks identified in the Risk Factors section of the Company’s public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including Bioventus’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as such factors may be updated from time to time in Bioventus’ other filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov and the Investor Relations page of Bioventus’ website at ir.bioventus.com. Except to the extent required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or review any estimate, projection, or forward-looking statement.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Organic Revenue Growth

The Company defines the term “organic revenue” as revenue in the stated period excluding the impact from business acquisitions and divestitures that occurred within the last 12 months. The Company uses the related term “organic revenue growth” to refer to the financial performance metric of comparing the stated period organic revenue with the reported revenue of the corresponding period in the prior year. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with our GAAP financial measures, allows the Company and its investors to better measure the Company’s performance and evaluate long-term performance trends. Organic revenue growth also facilitates easier comparisons of the Company’s performance with prior and future periods and relative comparisons to its peers. The Company excludes the effect of acquisitions and divestitures because these activities can have a significant impact on the Company's reported results, which the Company believes makes comparisons of long-term performance trends difficult for management and investors.
