  • Increases 2014 total revenue guidance to $425 to $450 million

  • Reaffirms 2014 adjusted net income and GAAP net income guidance of $40 to $50 million and $30 to $40 million, respectively

    ROCKVILLE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE: EBS) reported total revenue for Q2 2014 of $110.3 million as compared to $82.4 million in 2013. Total revenues for the first six months of 2014 were $164.2 million as compared to $125.5 million in 2013. The company is increasing its full year 2014 total revenue forecast to $425 to $450 million, from $415 to $445 million. The company also anticipates Q3 2014 total revenue of $110 to $125 million.

    Adjusted net income for Q2 2014 was $9.4 million as compared to adjusted net income of $11.4 million in 2013. The adjusted net loss for the first six months of 2014 was $5.4 million as compared to adjusted net income of $4.7 million in 2013. On a GAAP basis, the company reported Q2 2014 net income of $5.0 million, or $0.13 per share, as compared to $10.5 million, or $0.29 per share, in 2013 and reported first half 2014 net loss of $15.2 million, or $0.41 per share, as compared to net income of $2.4 million, or $0.07 per share, in 2013. Please see “Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income” for a definition of terms and explanation of these adjustments. The company is reaffirming its guidance for 2014 adjusted net income of $40 to $50 million and GAAP net income of $30 to $40 million.

    “During the second quarter, which was the first full quarter of combined operations with Cangene, we began to realize the benefits of our growth plan with reported revenues at the high end of our guidance,” said Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Emergent BioSolutions. “Based on the strength of the business, we are increasing our full year revenue forecast to $425 to $450 million, which represents a greater than 35% increase over 2013 revenue and supports our forecasted net income. We expect this to be primarily driven by increasing shipments of BioThrax consistent with our historical trend, and better than anticipated domestic and international sales of the biodefense products acquired from Cangene.”

    REVENUES

    Product Sales

    For Q2 2014, product sales were $78.3 million, an increase of 19% as compared to 2013. For the first six months of 2014, product sales were $114.0 million, an increase of 19% as compared to 2013.

    Total revenue from BioThrax® (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed) sales was $67.5 million during Q2 2014 as compared to $65.6 million in 2013. BioThrax sales for the six months ending June 30, 2014 were $92.0 million as compared to $96.0 million during the same period in 2013. The changes in both 2014 periods were primarily due to the timing of deliveries to the SNS.

    Contract Manufacturing

    For Q2 2014, contract manufacturing revenue was $9.2 million and for the six months of 2014 was $11.9 million. Contract manufacturing revenues primarily consisted of contract services to third parties.

    Contracts and Grants

    For Q2 2014, contracts and grants revenue was $22.9 million, an increase of 36% as compared to 2013. For the first six months of 2014 contracts and grants revenue was $38.3 million, an increase of 29% as compared to the same period in 2013. This increase is primarily due to development funding for BAT [Botulism Antitoxin Heptavalent (A,B,C,D,E,F,G)-(Equine)] and AIGIV [Anthrax Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human)].

    OPERATING EXPENSES

    Cost of Product Sales and Contract Manufacturing

    For Q2 2014, cost of product sales and contract manufacturing was $34.5 million as compared to $16.9 million for 2013. For the first six months of 2014, cost of product sales was $53.5 million as compared to $22.6 million in 2013. The increase in both periods was primarily attributable to product and contract manufacturing costs associated with revenues acquired as part of the Cangene and RSDL® (KBDO individual use decontamination packet) acquisitions.

    Research and Development

    For Q2 2014, gross research and development (R&D) expenses were $37.4 million as compared to $30.3 million in 2013. For the first six months of 2014, R&D costs were $67.7 million as compared to $61.0 million in 2013. The increase in both periods primarily reflects higher contract service costs, and includes increased expenses for product candidates and technology platform development activities in both the Biodefense and Biosciences divisions.

    Net R&D expenses for Q2 2014 were $14.5 million as compared to $13.3 million in 2013. For the first six months of 2014, Net R&D expenses were $29.4 million as compared to $30.6 million in 2013. Net R&D expenses are calculated as gross research and development expenses less development contract and grant reimbursements and the net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests.

    Selling, General and Administrative

    For Q2 2014, selling, general and administrative expenses were $30.6 million as compared to $20.5 million in 2013. This increase includes additional post-acquisition selling, general and administrative costs that are largely associated with the operations of Cangene and in support of RSDL.

    For the first six months of 2014, selling, general and administrative expenses were $60.6 million as compared to $40.5 million in 2013. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in Biosciences SG&A expenses due to professional services to support due diligence along with other acquisition-related activities and post-acquisition operations associated with the acquisition of Cangene.

    FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

    Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2014 were $168.1 million as compared to $160.2 million at March 31, 2014, and $179.3 million at December 31, 2013. Additionally, at June 30, 2014, the accounts receivable balance was $78.3 million, which is comprised primarily of receivables from the US government.

    Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income

    This press release contains a financial measure, adjusted net income (loss), which is considered a “non-GAAP” financial measure under applicable Securities & Exchange Commission rules and regulations. This non-GAAP financial measure 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 this non-GAAP measure may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. The non-GAAP financial measure used in this press release 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. The company views this non-GAAP financial measure as a means to facilitate management’s financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Emergent’s historical operating results and comparison to competitors’ operating results. This non-GAAP financial measure reflects 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 Emergent’s business.

    The determination of the amounts that are excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure is a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts. The company is likely to exclude the following items from its non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) in the future, the effect of which is uncertain but may be significant in amount:

  • Expenses related to completed and future acquisitions of other businesses, including amortization of acquired intangible and tangible assets, transaction costs and integration costs;
  • Non-cash charges related to the impairment of intangible or tangible assets;
  • Expenses associated with restructuring activities, including but not limited to, accelerated depreciation, severance costs and lease abandonment charges; and
  • Other non-recurring charges.

    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.
