JAZZ PHARMACEUTICALS ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS Company Reports Total Revenues of $196 Million Driven by Record Net Sales of Xyrem and Erwinaze

Adjusted EPS of $1.37; GAAP EPS of $0.71

Company Announces up to $200 Million Share Repurchase Program

DUBLIN, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc (Nasdaq: JAZZ) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013, updated 2013 financial guidance and key additions to its board of directors.

"During the first quarter, we continued to deliver strong top and bottom line growth fueled by growing sales of Xyrem and Erwinaze," said Bruce Cozadd, chairman and chief executive officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc.  "We have made substantial progress in the execution of our strategy to maximize the potential of our product portfolio while further strengthening our cash position, positioning us to pursue promising corporate development opportunities and share repurchases."

Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $84.4 million, or $1.37 per diluted share, compared to $51.7 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2012. 

Both GAAP income from continuing operations and GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 were $43.4 million, or $0.71 per diluted share.  GAAP income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2012 was $30.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, and GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2012 was $27.7 million, or $0.48 per diluted share. 

GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 included various acquisition-related expenses, including the change in fair value of contingent consideration, upfront license fees, transaction, integration and restructuring expenses, as well as certain non-cash expenses and income tax adjustments.  GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2012 included various acquisition-related expenses, including transaction and integration expenses, as well as certain non-cash expenses and discontinued operations.  Reconciliations of applicable GAAP to non-GAAP adjusted information are included with this press release.

In May 2013, our board of directors authorized the use of up to $200 million to repurchase the company's ordinary shares. The timing and amount of repurchases will depend on a variety of factors, including the price of the company's ordinary shares, alternative investment opportunities, restrictions under our existing credit agreement, corporate and regulatory requirements and market conditions. 

First Quarter 2013 Revenues and Product Sales

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $196.2 million, compared to total revenues of $102.5 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase in total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was driven primarily by inclusion of revenues from the acquired EUSA Pharma business and increased net sales of Xyrem® (sodium oxybate) oral solution.

Total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 included net sales, royalties and contract revenues. A table showing net sales for the first quarter of 2013 compared to pro forma net sales for the first quarter of 2012 is included in this press release.

Net sales for the first quarter of 2013 were as follows:

  • Xyrem®:  First quarter 2013 Xyrem sales increased by 60% to $117.5 million compared to $73.4 million during the first quarter of 2012.  During the first quarter of 2013, the average number of active Xyrem patients was approximately 10,550.
  • Erwinaze®/Erwinase® (asparaginase Erwinia chrysanthemi):  First quarter 2013 worldwide net sales of Erwinaze/Erwinase were $41.8 million compared to first quarter 2012 pro forma net sales of $32.9 million
  • Prialt® (ziconotide) intrathecal infusion:  First quarter 2013 net sales of Prialt were $5.0 million compared to pro forma net sales of $9.9 million in the same period of 2012.  The higher pro forma net sales of Prialt during the first quarter of 2012 included $4.6 million of sales of Prialt to Eisai Co. Limited under a supply agreement for distribution and sale in Europe.  
  • Psychiatry Products:  First quarter 2013 net sales of the company's psychiatry products were $17.7 million compared to pro forma net sales of $18.1 million for the same period of 2012.  First quarter 2013 net sales of the psychiatry products were impacted by the launch of a generic version of Luvox CR in March 2013. 
  • Other:  Net sales of other products for the first quarter of 2013 were $12.7 million compared to pro forma net sales of $12.9 million in the same period of 2012.  "Other" includes products acquired in the EUSA Pharma and Azur Pharma transactions that are not mentioned above. 

Operating Expenses and Other

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 increased to $128.1 million compared to $66.8 million for the first quarter of 2012.  Operating expenses increased over the prior year for the following reasons:

  • Cost of product sales for the first quarter of 2013 was $27.2 million compared to $7.7 million for the same period in 2012.  The increase in 2013 was primarily due to higher net sales and a change in product mix.
  • Gross margin for the first quarter of 2013, as a percentage of product sales, was 86.0% compared to 92.4% for the same period in 2012.  Our gross margin percentage in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 was lower primarily due to the inclusion of products from the EUSA Pharma acquisition.
  • Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") and research and development ("R&D") expenses for the first quarter of 2013 totaled $81.3 million compared to $48.3 million for the same period of 2012.  The increase reflected higher headcount and related expenses due primarily to the expansion of our business, a change in the fair value of contingent consideration related to the EUSA Pharma acquisition and upfront license fees, partially offset by lower transaction and integration costs. Adjusted SG&A and R&D expenses for the first quarter of 2013 totaled $62.2 million compared to $39.3 million for the same period in 2012.
  • Intangible asset amortization for the first quarter of 2013 was $19.6 million compared to $10.7 million for the same period in 2012.  The increase was primarily related to amortization of intangible assets acquired as part of the EUSA Pharma acquisition.

First quarter of 2013 net interest expense was $7.4 million.  As of March 31, 2013, our cash and cash equivalents were $450.5 million, and the remaining balance on our term loan was $451.2 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the company sold its women's health business. Financial results from the women's health business are reported as discontinued operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Jazz Pharmaceuticals' financial results and guidance presented on a GAAP basis, the company uses certain non-GAAP adjusted financial measures.  The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding its past financial performance and potential future results, particularly in light of the effect of various acquisition and divestiture transactions effected by the company during 2012.  They are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management regularly uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  Compensation of executives is based in part on the performance of the company's business based on certain of these non-GAAP measures.  In addition, Jazz Pharmaceuticals believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures enhances the ability of investors to compare its results from period to period.  The non-GAAP adjusted financial measures as used by Jazz Pharmaceuticals in this press release 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.

As used in this press release, (i) the historical adjusted net income measures exclude from GAAP income from continuing operations, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, acquisition accounting inventory fair value step-up adjustments, transaction and integration costs, restructuring charges, change in fair value of contingent consideration, upfront license fees, depreciation and other non-cash expense, and adjust the income tax provision to the estimated amount of taxes that are payable in cash; (ii) the historical adjusted combined SG&A and R&D expenses exclude from GAAP combined SG&A and R&D expenses, as applicable, share-based compensation expense, transaction, integration and restructuring costs, depreciation, upfront license fees and change in fair value of contingent consideration; (iii) the adjusted net income guidance measures exclude from estimated GAAP net income amortization of intangible assets and depreciation, share-based compensation expense, acquisition accounting inventory fair value step-up adjustments, transaction, integration and restructuring costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration, upfront license fees and other non-cash expense, and adjust the income tax provision to the estimated amount of taxes that are payable in cash; (iv) the adjusted gross margin percentage guidance excludes from estimated GAAP gross margin percentage share-based compensation expense, acquisition accounting inventory fair value step-up adjustments and restructuring expense; and (v) the adjusted combined SG&A and R&D expenses guidance excludes from estimated GAAP combined SG&A and R&D expenses share-based compensation expense, transaction, integration and restructuring costs, depreciation, change in fair value of contingent consideration and upfront license fees.

These forward-looking statements are based on Jazz Pharmaceuticals' current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties, which include, without limitation, risks and uncertainties associated with maintaining and increasing sales of and revenue from Xyrem, such as the potential introduction of generic competition and changed or increased regulatory restrictions on or requirements with respect to Xyrem, as well as similar risks related to effectively commercializing the company's other marketed products, including Erwinaze and Prialt; protecting the company's intellectual property rights; obtaining appropriate pricing and reimbursement for the company's products in an increasingly challenging environment; ongoing regulation and oversight by U.S. and non-U.S. regulatory agencies; dependence on key customers and sole source suppliers, including the risk that the company may be unable to timely resolve potential product supply shortages and meet product demand; the difficulty and uncertainty of pharmaceutical product development and the uncertainty of clinical success and regulatory approval; the company's ability to identify and acquire, in-license or develop additional products or product candidates to grow its business; and potential restrictions on the company's ability and flexibility to pursue future opportunities as a result of its substantial outstanding debt obligations; as well as risks related to future opportunities and plans, including the uncertainty of expected future financial performance and results; and those risks detailed from time-to-time under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports (Commission File No. 001-33500), including in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and future filings and reports by the company, including the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Jazz Pharmaceuticals undertakes no duty or obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this release as a result of new information, future events or changes in its expectations.
