Arthur S. Przybyl, President and CEO, stated, "2013 was an exciting and important year for ANI.  We went public via a merger that also resulted in us acquiring $18 million in net cash and a future royalty stream for a testosterone gel product.  Using a portion of that cash, we acquired 31 products from Teva Pharmaceuticals, expanding our existing line from 7 to 38 products. We paid Teva $8.5 million early last month and expect to pay the remaining $4 million shortly from cash on hand. We hope to launch the first of those products in the fourth quarter of 2014. We achieved record net revenues and profitability in the second half of the year, through organic growth, favorable market dynamics and price increases. We look forward to continuing our momentum in 2014."

Fourth Quarter Results

For the three months ended December 31, 2013, ANI reported net revenues of $10.5 million, an increase of 98% from $5.3 million for the same period last year. The increase in revenues was primarily due to a 170% increase in net prescription sales, from $3.3 million to $8.8 million, primarily due to increased sales of and price increases for the Company's Esterified Estrogen with Methyltestosterone Tablet ("EEMT") product. This was partially offset by a 16% decrease in contract sales and royalties from $2.1 million to $1.7 million. Net revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013 included a $0.5 million non-recurring milestone payment.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA was $3.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to ($0.3) million for the same period in the prior year. For a reconciliation of Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to GAAP operating income/(loss) from continuing operations, please see Table 2. 

Cost of sales decreased as a percentage of net sales to 25% from 49%, primarily due to price increases for EEMT.

Research and development costs were $0.5 million, for both the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased to $3.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 from $3.0 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to public company reporting expenses. Fourth quarter 2012 SG&A expense included $0.6 million of merger-related expenses.

Operating income from continuing operations was $3.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to an operating loss of $1.0 million in the prior year period. The fourth quarter 2012 operating loss from continuing operations included $0.6 million of merger-related expenses.

Net income from continuing operations was $3.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to a net loss of $1.2 million in the prior year period. Diluted EPS from continuing operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was $0.35.

Results for Year ended December 31, 2013

For the year ended December 31, 2013, ANI reported net revenues of $30.1 million, an increase of 48% from $20.4 million for the prior year. The increase in revenues was primarily due to an 89% increase in net prescription sales, from $12.0 million to $22.7 million, primarily due to increased sales of and price increases for EEMT. This was partially offset by an 11% decrease in contract sales and royalties, from $8.4 million to $7.4 million. Net revenue in 2013 included a $0.5 million non-recurring milestone payment.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA was $7.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to $1.5 million adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA for the prior year, an increase of 417%. For a reconciliation of Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to GAAP operating income/(loss) from continuing operations, please see Table 2. 

Cost of sales decreased as a percentage of net sales to 33% from 45%, primarily due to price increases for EEMT.

Research and development costs increased by 48% to $1.7 million in the year ended December 31, 2013, from $1.2 million in the prior year, due to increased spending on development activities related to the Company's collaborative arrangements. ANI filed one ANDA during the year.  

SG&A expenses increased to $16.4 million from $9.5 million. The increase was primarily due to merger-related expenses of $5.5 million, which included $4.4 million of non-cash equity bonuses paid to ANI executives. The increase was also due to increased public company reporting expenses. In 2012, SG&A expense included $0.9 million in merger-related expenses.

Operating income from continuing operations was $0.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, which included $5.5 million of merger-related expenses. ANI's operating loss of $42 thousand for the year ended December 31, 2012 included $0.9 million of merger-related expenses.

Net income from continuing operations was $0.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to a net loss of $1.5 million for the prior year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Non-GAAP EBITDA

ANI's management considers adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to be an important financial indicator of ANI's operating performance, providing investors and analysts with a useful measure of continuing operation results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation, merger-related expenses, and differences in capital structures, tax structures, capital investment cycles, ages of related assets and compensation structures among otherwise comparable companies. Management uses adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA when analyzing Company performance.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA is defined as operating income/(loss) from continuing operations, excluding depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and merger-related operating expenses.  Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA should be considered in addition to, but not in lieu of, net income or loss reported under GAAP.  A reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided in Table 2.
