PDL BioPharma Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. ("PDL" or the "Company") (PDLI) reports financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 including:

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues of $46.6 million.
  • GAAP net loss attributable to PDL's shareholders of $112.3 million or $(0.76) per share.
  • GAAP net loss includes a one-time $133.3 million, net of tax, non-cash accounting charge related to the impairment of an intangible asset from Noden Pharma DAC, due to the increased probability of a generic version of aliskiren being launched in the United States by Anchen, offset by a $19.7 million, net of tax, non-cash decrease in the fair value of the contingent liability related to a reduced estimate of the probability in paying milestones to Novartis for Tekturna®.
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to PDL's shareholders of $14.7 million. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results can be found in Table 3 at the end of this news release.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and other investments of $395.7 million as of June 30, 2018.
  • Repurchased 6.8 million shares of common stock in the open market during the quarter for $19.4 million.

"Our financial results for the second quarter reflect higher product sales resulting from our change in strategy to equity and product investments, and we continue to have a strong cash balance to pursue acquisitions. While we are disappointed with the write down of the Noden asset, the impairment is not an indication of the performance of the business this quarter, but rather is based upon uncertainty in the future generic aliskiren competition in the United States," said John P. McLaughlin, CEO of PDL.

"Last week we announced an amended agreement with Depomed to purchase Depomed's remaining interests in future royalties for $20 million in a transaction we view as highly attractive to our shareholders," he added. "While we are shifting our strategy away from royalty agreements, our familiarity with the Depomed assets and our past success with them supported this investment decision. We expect to begin realizing a return on this investment by late 2020 with meaningful cash returns expected through 2026."

Revenue Highlights

  • Total revenues of $46.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 included:
  • Total revenues for the second quarter of 2018 were $46.6 million, compared with $143.8 million for the second quarter of 2017, reflecting PDL's strategic shift to a pharmaceutical business model and the decline in royalty income from the expired Queen et al. patents.
  • Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018, were $85.1 million, compared with $189.3 million for the prior-year period:

Operating Expense Highlights

  • Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2018 of $171.7 million increased $140.6 million from $31.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase was a result of the impairment of the Noden intangible asset of $152.3 million due to the increased probability of a generic version of aliskiren being launched in the United States, partially offset by the $22.5 million decrease in fair value of the contingent liability related to reduced estimate in the probabilities in paying milestones to Novartis for Tekturna.
  • Cost of product revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased as a result of the Noden Products and LENSAR contributing additional cost of product revenue of $8.4 million and $1.6 million, respectively, due to increased revenue from Noden Products and recognition of costs of goods for ex-U.S. revenue and increased revenue from LENSAR, which PDL did not begin to recognize until May 2017. General and administrative expenses of $14.5 million, increased compared with $11.3 million a year ago, with the increase due to a full quarter of expenses from LENSAR in 2018 versus a partial quarter as a result of its acquisition in May 2017, operation growth for Noden and expenses related to business development activities. Sales and marketing expenses were $5.4 million, compared with $3.6 million in the prior-year period, with the increase due to an increase in marketing efforts for Noden and LENSAR, and research and development costs decreased based upon the completion of a pediatric trial for Tekturna.
  • Operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $205.9 million, a $147.9 million increase from $58.0 million for the prior-year period, with the increase primarily a result of the impairment of the Noden intangible asset of $152.3 million, as well as a result of Noden and LENSAR contributing additional cost of product revenue of $14.0 million and $4.0 million, respectively, which was due to increased revenue in Noden and recognition of costs of goods for ex-U.S. revenue and increased revenue from LENSAR, which PDL did not begin to recognized until May 2017, partially offset by the decrease in fair value of the contingent liability.

Stock Repurchase Programs

  • PDL repurchased 8.2 million shares of its common stock under the $25.0 million share repurchase program during the six months ended June 30, 2018, for an aggregate purchase price of $23.6 million, or an average cost of $2.89 per share, including trading commission. All shares repurchased were retired.
  • From July 1, 2018 to July 5, 2018, the Company completed this stock repurchase program with the repurchase of 0.6 million shares of its common stock at a weighted average price of $2.44 per share, for a total of $1.4 million.
  • Since initiating its first stock repurchase program in March 2017, the Company has used $55.0 million to repurchase a total of 22.0 million shares of its common stock.

Other Financial Highlights

  • PDL had cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and other investments of $395.7 million as of June 30, 2018, compared with $532.1 million as of December 31, 2017.
  • The reduction in cash balance for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was primarily a result of the retiring of the remaining $126.4 million of principal from PDL's 4.0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018, plus $2.6 million of accrued interest, and common stock repurchases of $23.6 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis by providing additional measures which may be considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable SEC rules. We believe that the disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures provides our investors with additional information that reflects the amounts and financial basis upon which our management assesses and operates our business. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for reported, or GAAP, net income, and diluted earnings per share, and are not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance performed in conformity with GAAP.

"Non-GAAP net income" is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represent GAAP net income adjusted to exclude (1) mark-to market adjustments related to the fair value election for our investments in royalty rights presented in our earnings, which include the fair value re-measurement of future discounted cash flows for each of the royalty rights assets we have acquired, (2) non-cash interest revenue from notes receivable (3) stock-based compensation expense, (4) non-cash interest expense related to PDL debt offering costs, (5) mark-to market adjustments related to warrants held, (6) impairment of intangible assets, (7) amortization of intangible assets, (8) mark-to-market adjustment related to acquisition-related contingent considerations, and to adjust (9) the related tax effect of all reconciling items within our reconciliation of our GAAP to Non-GAAP net income. Non-GAAP financial measures used by PDL may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
