GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Intrexon Corporation (NYSE: XON), a leader in synthetic biology, today announced its third quarter results for 2015. 

Business Highlights and Recent Developments:

  • During the third quarter, Intrexon and the biopharmaceutical business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, furthered research and development efforts with the collaboration's first two chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell targets of interest and are advancing these targets to address unmet clinical needs for patients with hematological and solid tumor malignancies. In addition to CAR development, Intrexon is leveraging its engineering capabilities to develop an allogeneic cellular approach to address novel paradigms for "off the shelf" adoptive cell therapies;
  • Acquired Oxitec Ltd., a company that has pioneered a targeted and innovative approach to control mosquitoes that spread disease and insect pests that damage crops, avoiding the off-target effects and broad environmental consequences of applying conventional insecticides. Addition of the Oxitec team expands Intrexon's capabilities to address a broad range of global environmental, health and agricultural challenges in new and responsible ways;
  • Completed work on an engineered cell line for Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC to enable production of a complex active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and the companies continue to explore other opportunities for future collaboration;
  • Announced exclusive agreement between Intrexon Energy Partners (IEP) and Dominion Energy, a subsidiary of Dominion Resources (NYSE: D), to explore the potential for commercial-scale biological conversion of natural gas to isobutanol, a drop-in fuel with numerous advantages over other clean burning gasoline blendstocks. Dominion will be the exclusive partner to construct, own, operate, and maintain the production facilities in the Marcellus and Utica Shale Basins located in eastern North America via potential long-term services agreements with IEP;
  • Established first Exclusive Channel Collaboration (ECC) with a startup backed by an investment fund that is dedicated to the inventions of Intrexon and sponsored by Harvest Capital Strategies, LLC. The collaboration with the startup entity, Thrive Agrobiotics, Inc., plans to utilize Intrexon's ActoBiotics® platform to express nutritive proteins for improving the overall growth and feed efficiency in piglets, thereby expanding the application of this innovative biologic delivery platform to animals;
  • Expanded relationship with ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZIOP) through an ECC for the treatment and prevention of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), a major complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation that significantly impairs the quality of life and survival of many recipients. The collaboration will focus on addressing the underlying pathologies of GvHD through engineered cell platforms to express and deliver interleukin-2 (IL-2), a cytokine critical for modulation of the immune system;
  • Entered into an ECC with Synthetic Biologics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SYN) to pursue the development and commercialization of novel biotherapeutics for the treatment of patients with phenylketonuria (PKU), a serious and debilitating metabolic disorder. The collaboration aims to target delivery of an essential enzyme via Intrexon's ActoBiotics® platform without having an adverse impact on the gut microbiome;
  • With collaborator Fibrocell Science, Inc. (NASDAQ: FCSC) provided an update on the status of the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for FCX-007, Fibrocell's orphan gene-therapy drug candidate for the treatment of the skin disorder recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB). At the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Fibrocell will conduct an additional toxicology-specific study and expects to amend the IND in response to the FDA's feedback, including data from the new toxicology study, in the first quarter of 2016;
  • Through wholly owned ViaGen Pets™, announced successful feline cloning for customers and plans to launch broadly available companion animal service and product offering in 2016;
  • Announced key management additions of Corey Huck as SVP, Head of Food Sector, and Joseph L. Vaillancourt, SVP, Head of Environment Sector; and
  • Completed a public offering of common stock resulting in total gross proceeds of approximately $230 million, before deducting the underwriting discounts, commissions, and estimated expenses.

  • Total revenues of $53.4 million, an increase of 152% over the third quarter of 2014;
  • Net loss of $38.2 million attributable to Intrexon, or $(0.34) per basic share;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $3.8 million, or $0.03 per basic share;
  • Cash consideration received for reimbursement of research and development services covered 59% of cash operating expenses (exclusive of operating expenses of consolidated subsidiaries); and
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term and long-term investments totaled $352.6 million, and the value of equity securities totaled $76.6 million at September 30, 2015.

"We continue to execute our plan and are satisfied with our progress to date," commented Randal J. Kirk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intrexon.  "Now with approximately 700 team members working on many dozens of engineered biology projects across a vast array of organisms; programs that are world-leading in science and in industry; governmentally approved products that are being readied for market, products that are ready for approval and others that span every step of the developmental schedule; a recurrent and growing revenue base; a financial discipline that provides us with the capital efficiency to make long bets as well as surer bets; and a team that is fervent in its belief that we can improve the world while building one of its finest organizations, we believe we are seeing the engineering of biology emerging as the greatest industrial vector in history and clarifying Intrexon's opportunity for a significant role in the world.  We look forward to our upcoming Investor Day event and to the opportunity to showcase more of what we have achieved to date."

Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results Compared to Prior Year Period 
Total revenues were $53.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $21.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $32.2 million, or 152%. For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, Trans Ova product revenue includes $8.3 million from the sale of pregnant cows, live calves and livestock used in production and service revenue includes $7.3 million from the provision of in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer services.  For the quarter ended September 30, 2014, these amounts were $3.8 million and $3.1 million, respectively. The increases relate primarily to the inclusion of a full quarter of results for Trans Ova in 2015 versus approximately one half-quarter of results for 2014 since the acquisition occurred during the middle of the third quarter of 2014. Collaboration and licensing revenues increased $22.1 million over the third quarter of 2014 due to (i) the recognition of deferred revenue for upfront payments received from Intrexon's license and collaboration agreement with the biopharmaceutical business of Merck KGaA, which became effective in May 2015, and from other collaborations signed by Intrexon between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, (ii) increased research and development services both for new collaborations and for the expansion of, or addition of new, programs with previously existing collaborators, and (iii) the recognition of previously deferred revenue related to collaboration agreements for which Intrexon satisfied all of its obligations or which were terminated by agreement during the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Total operating expenses were $61.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $36.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $25.1 million, or 69%.  Research and development expenses were $21.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $14.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $6.7 million, or 45%.  Salaries, benefits and other personnel costs increased $3.1 million due to (i) increases in research and development headcount to support new and expanded collaborations and from Intrexon's 2015 acquisitions and (ii) additional compensation expenses related to performance and retention incentives for research and development employees.  Lab supplies and consultants increased $1.5 million as a result of the increased level of research and development services provided to Intrexon's collaborators. Depreciation and amortization increased $1.3 million primarily as a result of acquiring property and equipment and intangible assets in connection with Intrexon's acquisitions of ActoGeniX and Okanagan in 2015.  Selling, general and administrative expenses were $23.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $14.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $8.2 million, or 55%. Salaries, benefits and other personnel costs increased $4.1 million due to (i) the inclusion of selling, general and administrative employees of Trans Ova for the full quarter in 2015 compared to approximately one half-quarter in 2014 and (ii) additional compensation expenses related to performance and retention incentives for selling, general and administrative employees. Legal and professional expenses increased $1.4 million primarily due to costs associated with the Oxitec acquisition in 2015. Total operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 also include $16.5 million of products and services costs which primarily consist of employee compensation costs, livestock, feed, drug supplies and facility charges related to the production of such products and services; this amount was $6.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The increase relates primarily to the inclusion of a full quarter of results for Trans Ova in 2015 versus approximately one half-quarter of results for 2014 since the acquisition occurred during the middle of the third quarter of 2014.

Total other expense, net, was $29.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $37.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, a decrease of $7.6 million, or 20%.  This decrease was primarily related to the changes in the value of Intrexon's securities portfolio.

Year-to-Date 2015 Financial Results Compared to Prior Year Period 
Total revenues were $132.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $40.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $91.3 million, or 223%.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, Trans Ova product revenue includes $28.4 million from the sale of pregnant cows, live calves and livestock used in production and service revenue includes $27.2 million from the provision of in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer services.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, these amounts were $3.8 million and $3.1 million, respectively. The increases relate primarily to the inclusion of nine months of results for Trans Ova in 2015 versus approximately one half-quarter of results for 2014 since the acquisition occurred during the middle of the third quarter of 2014. Collaboration and licensing revenues increased $34.4 million due over the nine months ended September 30, 2014 due to (i) the recognition of deferred revenue for upfront payments received from Intrexon's license and collaboration agreement with the biopharmaceutical business of Merck KGaA, which became effective in May 2015, and from other collaborations signed by Intrexon between January 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, (ii) increased research and development services both for new collaborations and for the expansion or addition of new programs with previously existing collaborators, and (iii) the recognition of previously deferred revenue related to collaboration agreements for which Intrexon satisfied all of its obligations or which were terminated during the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Total operating expenses were $244.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $91.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $152.8 million, or 166%. Research and development expenses were $121.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $41.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $80.0 million, or 193%. In January 2015, Intrexon issued 2,100,085 shares of its common stock valued at $59.6 million to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, or MD Anderson, in exchange for an exclusive license to certain technologies owned by MD Anderson.  Salaries, benefits and other personnel costs increased $9.0 million due to (i) increases in research and development headcount to support new and expanded collaborations and from Intrexon's 2015 acquisitions and (ii) additional compensation expenses related to performance and retention incentives for research and development employees.  Lab supplies and consultants expenses increased $5.6 million as a result of the increased level of research and development services provided to Intrexon's collaborators. Depreciation and amortization expense increased $2.2 million primarily as a result of acquiring property and equipment and intangible assets in connection with Intrexon's acquisitions of ActoGeniX and Okanagan in 2015. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $74.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $43.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $30.4 million, or 69%. Salaries, benefits and other personnel costs increased $17.5 million due to (i) the inclusion of selling, general and administrative employees of Trans Ova for a full nine months in 2015 compared to approximately one and one half months in 2014 and (ii) additional compensation expenses related to performance and retention incentives for general and administrative employees.  Legal and professional expenses increased $4.1 million primarily due to costs associated with acquisitions, the license agreement with MD Anderson, and other business development activity.  Depreciation and amortization associated with Trans Ova increased $2.0 million primarily due to the inclusion of such amounts for nine months in 2015 compared to one and one half months in 2014. Total operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 also include $48.6 million of products and services costs which primarily consist of employee compensation costs, livestock, feed, drug supplies and facility charges related to the production of such products and services; this amount was $6.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The increase relates primarily the inclusion of a full nine months of results for Trans Ova in 2015 versus approximately one half-quarter of results for 2014 since the acquisition occurred during the middle of the third quarter of 2014.

Total other income, net, was $65.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to total other expense, net, of $49.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of $114.1 million, or 233%. This increase was primarily related to the changes in the value of Intrexon's securities portfolio, including a realized gain of $81.4 million, which resulted from the special stock dividend of all of Intrexon shares of ZIOPHARM to the Company's shareholders in June 2015.

Intrexon Corporation and Subsidiaries

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures 

(Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share. To supplement Intrexon's financial information presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Intrexon presents Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Intrexon's net income or loss attributable to Intrexon under GAAP appears below.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that Intrexon calculates as net income or loss attributable to Intrexon adjusted for income tax expense or benefit, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based and executive incentive compensation, contribution of services by shareholder, noncash research and development expenses related to the acquisition of Intrexon's license agreement with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, realized and unrealized appreciation or depreciation in the fair value of equity securities, equity in net loss of affiliate and the change in deferred revenue related to upfront and milestone payments.  Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are key metrics for Intrexon's management and Board of Directors for evaluating the Company's financial and operating performance, generating future operating plans and making strategic decisions about the allocation of capital.  Management and the Board of Directors believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are useful to understand the long-term performance of Intrexon's core business and facilitate comparisons of the Company's operating results over multiple reporting periods.  Intrexon is providing this information to investors and others to assist them in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results in the same manner as its management and board of directors. While Intrexon believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating its business, and may be of use to investors, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and are not intended to represent cash flows from operations nor earnings per share under GAAP and should not be used as an alternative to net income or loss as an indicator of operating performance or to represent cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of liquidity.  Intrexon compensates for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share by using them only to supplement the Company's GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company's business.  Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share have limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Intrexon's results as reported under GAAP.

In addition to the reasons stated above, which are generally applicable to each of the items Intrexon excludes from its non-GAAP financial measure, Intrexon believes it is appropriate to exclude certain items from the definition of Adjusted EBITDA for the following reasons:

  • Interest expense may be subject to changes in interest rates which are beyond Intrexon's control;
  • Depreciation of Intrexon's property and equipment and amortization of acquired identifiable intangibles can be affected by the timing and magnitude of business combinations and capital asset purchases;
  • Stock-based compensation expense is a noncash expense and may vary significantly based on the timing, size and nature of awards granted and also because the value is determined using formulas which incorporate variables, such as market volatility. Executive incentive compensation expenses are determined by the compensation committee of the Board of Directors at the end of the year and may be based on, among other items, the results of Adjusted EBITDA, exclusive of such expenses.
  • Contribution of services by shareholder is a noncash expense which Intrexon excludes in evaluating its financial and operating performance;
  • Unrealized and realized appreciation or depreciation in the fair value of securities which Intrexon holds in its collaborators may be significantly impacted by market volatility and other factors which are outside of the Company's control in the short term and Intrexon intends to hold these securities over the long term except as provided above;
  • Equity in net loss of affiliate reflects Intrexon's proportionate share of the income or loss of entities over which the Company has significant influence, but not control, and accounts for using the equity method of accounting. The Company's acquisition of the license agreement with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was a noncash expense Intrexon incurred to obtain access to specific technologies, which are strategic to the Company. Intrexon believes excluding the impact of such losses or gains on these types of strategic investments from its operating results is important to facilitate comparisons between periods; and
  • GAAP requires Intrexon to account for its collaborations as multiple-element arrangements. As a result, the Company defers certain collaboration revenues because certain of its performance obligations cannot be separated and must be accounted for as one unit of accounting. The collaboration revenues that Intrexon so defers arise from upfront and milestone payments received from the Company's collaborators, which Intrexon recognizes over the future performance period even though the Company's right to such consideration is neither contingent on the results of Intrexon's future performance nor refundable in the event of nonperformance. In order to evaluate Intrexon's operating performance, its management adjusts for the impact of the change in deferred revenue for these upfront and milestone payments in order to include them as a part of adjusted EBITDA when the transaction is initially recorded. The adjustment for the change in deferred revenue removes the noncash revenue recognized during the period and includes the cash and stock received from collaborators for upfront and milestone payments during the period. Intrexon believes that adjusting for the impact of the change in deferred revenue in this manner is important since it permits the Company to make quarterly and annual comparisons of the Company's ability to consummate new collaborations or to achieve significant milestones with existing collaborators. Further, Intrexon believes it is useful when evaluating its financial and operating performance, generating future operating plans and making strategic decisions about the allocation of capital.
