Arthur S. Przybyl, President and CEO, stated,

"We are pleased to report a strong third quarter, with increases over the prior year in revenue, EBITDA, and operating income. We have a compelling product pipeline of 85 drugs that represent over $4.6 billion in IMS sales. Recently, we launched two new generic drugs, Oxycodone and Vancomycin, which will help to expand our growing generic business segment and increased our total currently-marketed products to 14. Our near-term focus is on launching ten additional drugs over the next five quarters. Two of these drugs represent the potential for significant upside to our revenues and EBITDA. Business development activities included a new agreement with IDT Australia to commercialize 18 previously approved drugs and our announcement to acquire two Corticotropin NDAs from Merck. These NDAs have the future potential to be the largest selling drugs in ANI's portfolio."

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, ANI reported net revenues of $20.0 million, an increase of 15% from $17.4 million in the prior year period, due to the following factors:

  • Revenues from sales of generic pharmaceuticals increased 48%, to $15.1 million from $10.2 million in the prior period, primarily due to increased sales of EEMT, as well as sales from Methazolamide, which was launched in the fourth quarter of 2014, and Etodolac and Propafenone, which were launched in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Revenues from sales of branded pharmaceuticals decreased 53%, to $2.3 million from $4.8 million in the prior period, primarily as a result of lower unit sales of Reglan, decreases in unit sales of Lithobid and Vancocin, and increased Medicaid utilization and Medicaid rebates for both Lithobid and Vancocin.
  • Contract manufacturing revenue decreased by 5% to $1.3 million from $1.4 million in the prior year period, primarily as a result of timing of customer orders.
  • Contract services and other revenues increased by 28%, to $1.3 million from $1.0 million, primarily due to royalties received on sales of the authorized generic of Vancocin. In November, the Company launched an authorized generic for Vancocin under its own label, which replaced the authorized generic product previously on the market.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA was $11.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $10.1 million in the prior year period, an increase of 15%. For a reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to GAAP operating income, please see Table 2. 

Cost of sales decreased as a percentage of net revenues to 16% from 18%, primarily due to a favorable shift in product mix toward the Company's higher-margin products and margin increases for the Company's generic products.

Research and development costs decreased to $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.9 million in the prior year period. The decrease was due to timing of work on development projects. Major development projects include the ANDAs acquired in 2014 and 2015, Flecainide, and collaborations with partners.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $5.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, from $4.1 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to increased business development activities and increased personnel and compensation costs.

Operating income was $8.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $8.2 million in the prior year period.

Other income/expense changed to $2.8 million of expense in the three months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.1 million of income in the prior year period, due to interest expense related to the convertible debt issued in December 2014.

Net income was $4.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to net income of $6.7 million in the prior year period. Diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $0.39, based on 11,563 thousand diluted shares outstanding, as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.59 in the prior year period.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.80. For a reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share to GAAP net income, please see Table 3.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, ANI reported net revenues of $58.3 million, an increase of 67% from $34.9 million in the prior year period, due to the following factors:

  • Revenues from sales of generic pharmaceuticals increased 78%, to $41.1 million from $23.1 million in the prior period, primarily due to increased sales of EEMT, as well as sales from Methazolamide, which was launched in the fourth quarter of 2014, and Etodolac and Propafenone, which were launched in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Revenues from sales of branded pharmaceuticals increased 41%, to $8.7 million from $6.1 million in the prior period, primarily as a result of sales of Lithobid and Vancocin, which were acquired in the third quarter of 2014, partially offset by lower unit sales of Reglan and increased Medicaid utilization and Medicaid rebates for Lithobid and Vancocin.
  • Contract manufacturing revenue decreased by 13% to $3.6 million from $4.1 million in the prior year period, primarily as a result of timing of customer orders.
  • Contract services and other revenues increased by 211%, to $4.9 million from $1.6 million, primarily due to royalties received on sales of the authorized generic of Vancocin. In the second quarter, ANI's authorized generic partner for Vancocin adjusted its estimates for chargebacks, rebates, and other deductions from gross sales for the last five months of 2014, which resulted in a non-recurring $1.4 million increase in royalty revenue. In November, the Company launched an authorized generic for Vancocin under its own label, which replaced the authorized generic product previously on the market.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA was $33.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $14.5 million in the prior year period, an increase of 133%. For a reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA to GAAP operating income, please see Table 2. 

Cost of sales decreased as a percentage of net revenues to 16% from 22%, primarily due to higher margin sales of the Lithobid and Vancocin branded products and margin increases for the Company's generic products.

Research and development costs increased to $2.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, from $2.1 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to work on development projects, including the ANDAs acquired in 2014 and 2015, Flecainide, and collaborations with partners.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $15.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, from $13.2 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to increased expenses associated with the Company's business development activities and increased personnel and compensation. These increases were partially offset by a non-recurring prior period $1.3 million catch-up adjustment for non-cash stock-based compensation expense recognized upon shareholder approval of an increase in shares available for issuance under ANI's stock compensation plan.

Operating income was $26.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $9.2 million in the prior year period.

Other income/expense changed to $8.2 million of expense in the nine months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.1 million of income in the prior year period, due to interest expense related to the convertible debt issued in December 2014.

Net income was $12.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $7.7 million in the prior year period. Diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $1.07, based on 11,559 thousand diluted shares outstanding, as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.70 in the prior year period.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $2.20. For a reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share to GAAP net income, please see Table 3.

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 operating results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation 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), excluding depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expense. 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.

Adjusted non-GAAP Net Income

ANI's management considers adjusted non-GAAP net income to be an important financial indicator of ANI's operating performance, providing investors and analysts with a useful measure of operating results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, depreciation amortization, and deferred tax expenses and benefits. Management uses adjusted non-GAAP net income when analyzing Company performance.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income is defined as net income/(loss), plus tax expense, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, less the current portion of the tax provision. Adjusted non-GAAP net income should be considered in addition to, but not in lieu of, net income reported under GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided in Table 3.

Adjusted non-GAAP Net Income per Diluted Share

ANI's management considers adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be an important financial indicator of ANI's operating performance, providing investors and analysts with a useful measure of operating results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, depreciation, amortization, and deferred tax expenses and benefits. Management uses adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share when analyzing Company performance.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share is defined as adjusted non-GAAP net income, as defined above, divided by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding during the period. Adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share should be considered in addition to, but not in lieu of, earnings or loss per share reported under GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income per diluted share to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided in Table 3.
