“Despite COVID-19, in 2020 we continued the systematic execution of our growth initiatives both domestically and internationally. Elective surgery volumes declined globally but staged a gradual recovery throughout the year,” CEO Mark Throdahl said in a news release.
“During the fourth quarter, our domestic business grew 26% and international agencies grew 51%, supporting the beginning of an international sales turnaround.”
OrthoPediatrics said it expects “very significant growth” over full-year 2020 with sales reaching $93-98 million to represent 31%-38% growth. “We are optimistic about the outlook in 2021, particularly with the resumption of strong international growth,” Throdahl said.
