Operating earnings (GAAP and non-GAAP)

For the three months ended June 30, 2022 operating earnings (GAAP) were $11.3 million, as compared to $34.1 million for the same period in 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022 operating earnings (GAAP) were $13.3 million, as compared to $47.3 million for the same period in 2021. The decreases in both periods were primarily due to activities to support the launch of Qelbree, costs associated with GOCOVRI and amortization of acquired intangible assets from the Adamas Acquisition.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, adjusted operating earnings (non-GAAP) were $37.6 million, compared to $37.4 million in the second quarter of 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, adjusted operating earnings (non-GAAP) was $65.7 million, compared to $62.7 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains a financial measure, non-GAAP operating earnings, which does not comply with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, or superior to measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP operating earnings adjust for non-cash share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, and accretion of contingent consideration, and for factors that are unusual, non-recurring or unpredictable, and exclude those costs, expenses, and other specified items presented in the reconciliation tables in this press release. We believe the use of non-GAAP operating earnings is useful supplemental information to investors regarding the Company’s results of operations and assist management, analysts, and investors in evaluating the performance of the business. There are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Including such measures may not be entirely comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, may not reflect all items of income and expense, as applicable, that affect our operations, potential differences among calculation methodologies, may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. We mitigate these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation. The Company’s 2022 financial guidance is also being provided on both a reported and a non-GAAP basis.
