Akorn Provides Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Results

LAKE FOREST, Ill., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akorn, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKRX), a leading specialty generic pharmaceutical company, today announced its financial results for the year ended 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2018 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Net revenue was $153 million, a decline of $33 million, or 17.6%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, predominantly due to the effect of competition on key products and shortfalls in supply
  • Net loss was $215 million compared to a net loss of $65 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA was $(20) million compared to $28 million in the fourth quarter of 2017
  • Continued progress on completion of FDA action items related to the inspections of our facilities in Decatur and Somerset
  • Appointed Douglas Boothe as President and Chief Executive Officer, bringing significant generic and specialty pharmaceutical leadership experience
  • Announced new additions to Board of Directors and Executive Management team adding significant expertise to the Company’s leadership
  • Focused on moving forward and rebuilding shareholder value as an independent company following the terminated Fresenius Kabi AG merger agreement
  • Engaged financial, operational, and legal advisors to help develop and execute long-term growth plan
  • Healthy cash position of $225 million as of December 31, 2018

Douglas Boothe, Akorn’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am excited to join Akorn at such a critical time for the Company.  Our recent financial results reflect the many challenges that have impacted our business of late, including increased competition for many of our generic and promoted products, supply issues, and regulatory and legal challenges.  Despite these significant headwinds, we have strong fundamentals to build upon, including a diverse product portfolio, a solid pipeline, niche manufacturing capabilities and, most importantly, a dedicated and extremely talented workforce.”

“During my first two months with Akorn, we have made structural and organizational changes to emphasize compliance, transparency, and accountability.  Additionally, we have decided to explore strategic alternatives to exit our India facility.  I believe these initial changes provide the foundational elements that will strengthen our business and enhance trust with our many stakeholders,” stated Boothe.  “I look forward to providing updates in the coming months on our go-forward strategy and plan to rebuild value for all of our stakeholders.”

Summary Financial Results for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2018:

Akorn reported revenues of $153.4 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2018, representing a decrease of $32.7 million, or 17.6%, as compared to net revenue of $186.1 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2017.  The decrease in net revenue in the period was primarily due to $32.6 million decline in organic revenue.  The $32.6 million decline in organic revenue was due to approximately $39.9 million, or 21.4% in volume declines partially offset by an increase of $7.3 million, or 3.9% in price.  The organic revenue decline was principally due to the effect of competition on Ephedrine Sulfate Injection, Nembutal Injection and Clobetasol Cream, and shortfalls in supply due to slower than expected resumption in manufacturing at our Decatur and Somerset manufacturing facilities after their extended planned shutdowns.

Gross profit for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was $25.2 million, or 16.4% of net revenue, compared to $82.9 million, or 44.6% of net revenue, in the corresponding prior year quarter.  The decline in the gross profit percentage was principally due to: unfavorable variances related to decreased production at our Decatur and Somerset manufacturing facilities, increased operating costs associated with FDA compliance related improvement activities, as well as unfavorable product mix.

Net loss for the fourth quarter 2018 was $215.0 million, or $(1.71) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $65.2 million, or $(0.52) per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2017.  Including a net adjustment of $179.2 million to net income for non-GAAP items, adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2018 were $(0.29), compared to $0.14 in the same quarter 2017, after a net adjustment of $82.4 million to net income for non-GAAP items.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was $(174.1) million for the fourth quarter 2018, compared to $(98.4) million for the fourth quarter 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA, which is another non-GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the operations of the Akorn business, was $(19.9) million for the fourth quarter 2018, compared to $28.3 million for the fourth quarter 2017.  See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Summary Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2018:

Net revenue was $694.0 million for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2018, representing a decrease of $147.0 million, or 17.5%, as compared to net revenue of $841.0 million for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2017.  The decline was principally due to the effect of competition on Ephedrine Sulfate Injection, Nembutal, Lidocaine Ointment and Clobetasol Cream.  In addition, the Company experienced lower net revenue as a result of extended planned shutdowns at our Decatur and Somerset manufacturing facilities during the year.

Gross profit for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2018 was $246.0 million, or 35.4% of revenue, compared to $432.2 million, or 51.4% of revenue, for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2017.  The decline in the gross profit percentage was principally due to unfavorable product mix, unfavorable variances due to decreased production at our Decatur and Somerset manufacturing facilities, as well as increased operating costs associated with FDA compliance related improvement activities.

Net loss for 2018 was $401.9 million, or $(3.21) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $24.6 million, or $(0.20) per diluted share, for 2017.  Including a net adjustment of $378.2 million to net income for non-GAAP items, adjusted diluted earnings per share for 2018 were $(0.19), compared to $0.93 for 2017, after a net adjustment of $141.0 million to net income for non-GAAP items.

EBITDA was $(309.5) million for 2018, compared to $64.0 million for 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA was $49.3 million for 2018, compared to $245.5 million for 2017.  See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement Akorn’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses certain non-GAAP (also referred to as “adjusted” or “non-GAAP adjusted”) financial measures in this press release and the accompanying tables, including (1) EBITDA, (2) adjusted EBITDA, (3) adjusted net income, (4) adjusted diluted earnings per share, (5) net debt, and (6) net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio. These non-GAAP measures adjust for certain specified items that are described in this release. The Company believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures is helpful in understanding its past financial performance and potential future results. The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to comparable GAAP measures.

Akorn’s management uses EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in managing and analyzing its business and financial condition. Akorn’s management believes that the presentation of these and other non-GAAP financial measures provide investors greater transparency into Akorn’s ongoing results of operations allowing investors to better compare the Company’s results from period to period.

Investors should note that these non-GAAP financial measures used to present financial guidance are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors should also note that these non-GAAP financial measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. In addition, from time-to-time in the future there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; likewise, the Company may in the future cease to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions, the non-GAAP financial measures as used by Akorn in this press release and the accompanying tables may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by the Company’s competitors and other companies.

Set forth below is the definition of each non-GAAP financial measure as used by the Company in this press release and a full reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA, as defined by the Company, represents net income before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net (loss) income, (minus) plus:

  • Interest income (expense), net
  • Provision for income taxes
  • Depreciation and amortization
  • Non-cash expenses, such as impairment of long-lived assets, share-based compensation expense, and amortization of deferred financing costs
  • Other adjustments, such as legal settlements, restatement expenses and various merger and acquisition-related expenses, fixed asset impairment, executive termination payments, data integrity investigations & assessment, and Fresenius transaction & litigation

Adjusted EBITDA is deemed by the Company to be a useful performance indicator because it includes an add back of non-cash or non-recurring operating expenses that have no impact on continuing cash flows as well as other items that are not expected to recur and therefore are not reflective of continuing operating performance.

Adjusted net (loss) income, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net (loss) income, (minus) plus:

  • Intangible asset amortization and impairment
  • Non-cash expenses, such as, share-based compensation expense, and amortization of financing costs
  • Other adjustments, such as legal settlements, restatement expenses and various merger and acquisition-related expenses, fixed asset impairment, executive termination payments, data integrity investigations & assessment, and Fresenius transaction & litigation
  • Less an estimated tax provision, net of the benefit from utilizing net operating loss carry-forwards effected for the adjustments noted above

Adjusted diluted earnings per share, as defined by the Company, is equal to adjusted net income divided by the actual or anticipated diluted share count for the applicable period. The Company believes that adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are meaningful financial indicators, to both Company management and investors, in that they exclude non-cash income and expense items that have no impact on current or future cash flows, as well as other income and expense items that are not expected to recur and therefore are not reflective of continuing operating performance.

The shortcomings of non-GAAP financial measures as guidance or performance measures are that they provide a view of the Company’s results of operations without including all events during a period. For example, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the impact of capital expenditures on either the liquidity or the financial performance of the Company and likewise omits share-based compensation expenses, which may vary over time and may represent a material portion of overall compensation expense. Adjusted net income does not take into account non-cash expenses that reflect the amortization of past expenditures, or include share-based compensation, which is an important and material element of the Company's compensation package for its directors, officers and other key employees. Due to the inherent limitations of non-GAAP financial measures, investors should consider non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures as presented in this press release.
