LAKE FOREST, Ill., March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akorn, Inc. (Nasdaq:AKRX), a leading specialty generic pharmaceutical company, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter 2016 and full year 2016, and provided full year 2017 guidance.

Q4 2016 Operating Highlights:

  • Received three Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDAs”) approvals:
    - Ibuprofen 100mg/5mL Oral Suspension that launched in November 2016
    - Azelastine Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution, 0.05% that launched in January 2017
    - Triamcinolone Acetonide Topical Aerosol, 0.147 mcg/mL that the Company is planning to launch in 2017 
  • Expanded R&D footprint with October opening of new R&D center in Cranbury, NJ
  • Submitted 12 ANDAs to the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA")
  • Received favorable ruling from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") in the inter partes review (IPR) proceeding finding all of the claims of the Durezol® patent to be obvious; the decision has subsequently been appealed as expected
  • Received FDA NAI status (No Action Indicated), the highest status level available, for the Company's Decatur facility, following the December 2016 re-inspection.  The Company's three other FDA approved manufacturing sites are in good standing following 2016 FDA inspections.
  • Made significant progress at Akorn India; on track with plan to resume exhibit batch production in Q3 2017

Raj Rai, Akorn’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our performance in 2016. First and foremost, we completed the restatement of our 2014 financials and became current with our SEC filings, which in itself was a major accomplishment.  In 2016, we achieved record revenues, surpassing a billion dollars and solidifying Akorn’s position among the top specialty generics companies with manufacturing roots in the United States. This would not have happened without the collective efforts and dedication of all Akorn employees.”

Rai further added, “Our focus in 2017 and beyond remains consistent with our growth strategy of diversifying our portfolio, thus reducing product concentration through harvesting and replenishing our pipeline, deploying capital to consummate smart acquisitions through business development efforts and continuing to invest in our infrastructure. Finally, we remain optimistic about both the short and long-term prospects of our business despite the headwinds in our industry.”

Summary Financial Results for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2016:

Akorn reported revenues of $284 million for the fourth quarter 2016 representing an increase of $4 million, or 1%, over the fourth quarter 2015. Full year 2016 revenues of $1,117 million represented an increase of $132 million, or 13.4%, over prior year revenues of $985 million.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter 2016 was $32 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $33 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2015. Including a net adjustment of $40 million to net income for non-GAAP items, adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.58 in the fourth quarter 2016, compared to a net adjustment of $43 million to net income for non-GAAP items and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.60 in the same quarter 2015.  For information regarding adjusted diluted earnings per share and other non-GAAP financial measures, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

GAAP net income for the full year 2016 was $184 million, or $1.47 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $151 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, in the prior year. Including a net adjustment of $99 million to net income for non-GAAP items, adjusted diluted earnings per share were $2.25 in 2016, compared to a net adjustment of $103 million to net income for non-GAAP items and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $2.02 in the prior year ended December 31, 2015.

The 2016 results included the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-09 “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting” that requires the income tax benefit from employee stock option exercises to be recognized through the income tax provision in the period the stock options are exercised.  Previously, this benefit was recognized directly to equity.  For the fourth quarter 2016, the Company had an insignificant impact in the income tax provision and no impact to the diluted earnings per share from employee stock option exercises.  For the full year 2016, the Company recognized an aggregate $11.4 million tax benefit, or $0.09 per diluted share, from employee stock option exercises.  There was no change to the income tax provision for 2015 as the adoption impacts current and future periods.  The full year 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share excluded the $0.09 per diluted share tax benefit from employee stock option exercises.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $112 million in the fourth quarter 2016, compared to $115 million in the fourth quarter 2015.  EBITDA was $442 million in the full year 2016, compared to $401 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA, which is another non-GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the continuing operations of the Akorn business, was $125 million in the fourth quarter 2016, compared to $135 million in the fourth quarter 2015.  Adjusted EBITDA was $509 million in the full year 2016, compared to $460 million in the prior year.  For information regarding EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

As of the year ended December 31, 2016, Akorn had a trailing twelve months net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.2x.  For information regarding net debt, net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio and other non-GAAP financial measures, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

About Akorn:

Akorn, Inc. is a specialty generic pharmaceutical company engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of multisource and branded pharmaceuticals. Akorn has manufacturing facilities located in Decatur, Illinois; Somerset, New Jersey; Amityville, New York; Hettlingen, Switzerland and Paonta Sahib, India that manufacture ophthalmic, injectable and specialty sterile and non-sterile pharmaceuticals. Additional information is available on Akorn’s website at www.akorn.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement Akorn’s financial results and guidance 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, (6) net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio, (7) adjusted tax and (8) adjusted tax rate.

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.  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 and setting performance goals.  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.  The Company uses net debt and net debt to EBITDA ratio to analyze the financial capacity for further leverage and in analyzing the business and financial condition. Adjusted tax and adjusted tax rate are utilized as management believes it adds comparability through the elimination of discrete tax events which are unrelated to the continuing cash flows of the Company. 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.  See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” attached for details regarding the adjustments made.

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.

Investors should also note that these non-GAAP financial measures 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.

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.  See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” attached.
