Contract Manufacturing

For Q4 2018, revenue from the Company’s contract manufacturing operations was $26.9 million, an increase of $10.7 million or 66% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects increased manufacturing services for existing commercial customers at the Company’s Camden site.

Contracts and Grants

For Q4 2018, revenue from the Company’s development-based contracts and grants was $26.4 million, an increase of $10.5 million or 66% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects increased R&D activities related to certain ongoing funded development programs, most notably NuThrax™ (anthrax vaccine adsorbed with CPG 7909 adjuvant).

Operating Expenses

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Manufacturing

For Q4 2018, cost of product sales and contract manufacturing was $113.2 million, an increase of $46.7 million or 70% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects the impact of an increase in sales of NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) Nasal Spray, which was acquired in the fourth quarter of 2018, and raxibacumab, which was acquired in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Research and Development (Gross and Net)

For Q4 2018, gross R&D expenses were $52.0 million, an increase of $23.5 million or 82% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects an increase in costs associated with contract development services associated with NuThrax™ (anthrax vaccine adsorbed with CPG 7909 adjuvant).

For Q4 2018, net R&D expense, which reflects investments made in development programs that are not currently funded in whole or in part by third-party partners and is calculated as gross research and development expenses minus contracts and grants revenue, was $25.6 million, an increase of $13.0 million or 103% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects investment in process improvements related to ACAM2000®, (Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live) at the Canton site and increased costs associated with the Phase 2 clinical trial for the FLU-IGIV program. The Q4 2018 net R&D expense was 10% of net revenue (total revenue less contracts & grants) compared to 7% of net revenue in Q4 2017.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q4 2018, selling, general and administrative expenses were $81.0 million, an increase of $39.2 million or 94% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects higher transaction and integration related costs associated with the PaxVax and Adapt Pharma acquisitions.

Amortization of Intangible Assets

The Company has elected to reclassify amortization of intangible assets for Q4 2018 from cost of product sales and contract manufacturing to amortization of intangible assets, and therefore the Q4 2017 amounts have also been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

For Q4 2018, amortization of intangible assets was $13.3 million versus $3.9 million as compared to 2017. The increase entirely reflects higher non-cash intangible asset amortization costs associated with the PaxVax and Adapt Pharma acquisitions, which both closed in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Income Taxes

For Q4 2018, the provision for income tax expense in the amount of $7.0 million includes the impact of non-deductible acquisition transaction costs and other permanent items. The effective tax rate for Q4 2018 is not meaningful given the low level of pre-tax income for the quarter.

Net Income (Loss) & Adjusted Net Income

For Q4 2018, the Company recorded a net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, versus net income of $33.9 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, in 2017. (2)

For Q4 2018, the Company recorded adjusted net income of $38.3 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, versus adjusted net income of $37.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in 2017. (1) (2)

EBITDA & Adjusted EBITDA

For Q4 2018, the Company recorded EBITDA of $36.1 million versus $65.2 million in 2017. (1)

For Q4 2018, the Company recorded adjusted EBITDA of $75.0 million versus $67.1 million in 2017. (1)

Revenues

Total Revenues

Product Sales

For full year 2018, product sales were $606.5 million, an increase of $185.0 million or 44% as compared to 2017. The increase primarily reflects a full year of sales of ACAM2000®, (Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live) and raxibacumab, both acquired in the fourth quarter of 2017, and NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) Nasal Spray, which was acquired in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Contracts and Grants

For full year 2018, revenue from the Company’s development-based contracts and grants was $77.0 million, an increase of $6.5 million or 9% as compared to 2017.

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Manufacturing

For full year 2018, cost of product sales and contract manufacturing was $322.3 million, an increase of $134.6 million or 72% as compared to 2017.

Selling, General and Administrative

For full year 2018, selling, general and administrative expenses were $202.5 million, an increase of $59.6 million or 42% as compared to 2017.

Amortization of Intangible Assets

The Company has elected to reclassify amortization of intangible assets for full year 2018 from cost of product sales and contract manufacturing to amortization of intangible assets, and therefore the 2017 amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

For full year 2018, amortization of intangible assets was $25.0 million versus $8.6 million as compared to 2017.

Income Taxes

For full year 2018, the provision for income tax expense in the amount of $18.8 million includes the impact of state taxes, GILTI (Global Intangible Low Income Tax), acquisition transaction costs and other non-deductible items. These are partially offset by the benefit relating to finalizing the impact of Tax Reform and the stock option deduction, resulting in an effective tax rate of 23%.

CALCULATION OF DILUTED EARNINGS PER SHARE

For both the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, net income per diluted share was calculated using the “treasury method.”

For both the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, net income per diluted share is computed using the “if-converted” method. Such a method only applies to results prior to November 14, 2017, the date the Company terminated conversion rights associated with the 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the Notes). This method requires net income to be adjusted to add back interest expense and amortization of debt issuance cost, both net of tax, associated with the Notes. The following table details the adjustments made in this calculation.

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME (LOSS) TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME, EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA

This press release contains two financial measures (Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), and Adjusted EBITDA) that are considered “non-GAAP” financial measures under applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company’s definition of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. Adjusted Net Income adjusts for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict, or reflect the non-cash impact of charges resulting from purchase accounting (which are all tax effected utilizing the statutory tax rate for the US). EBITDA reflects net income excluding the impact of depreciation, amortization, interest expense and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes specified items that can be highly variable and the non-cash impact of certain purchase accounting adjustments (which are all tax effected utilizing the statutory tax rate for the US). The Company views these non-GAAP financial measures as a means to facilitate management’s financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of the Company’s historical operating results and comparison to competitors’ operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business.

The determination of the amounts that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures are a matter of management judgment and depend upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
