Patheon reports fiscal 2013 third quarter results

Top-line growth at 30.4 percent; Banner integration complementing business lines

TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Patheon Inc. (TSX: PTI), a leading provider of contract development and commercial manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry, with recently acquired proprietary products, announced today fiscal 2013 third quarter results.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Highlights  

  • Revenues in the quarter increased to $265.7 million from $203.7 million in the same period last year, an increase of $62.0 million or 30.4 percent. Revenue resulting from the Banner acquisition was $66.4 million in the quarter.

  • Gross profit in the quarter improved to $71.1 million from $55.5 million in the same period last year, an increase of $15.6 million or 28.1 percent.

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased in the quarter to $41.0 million from $36.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of $4.6 million.

  • Income from continuing operations in the quarter was $4.3 million compared to income from continuing operations of $15.5 million in the same period last year. This decrease was due to higher repositioning and interest expenses, as well as higher selling, general and administrative expenses, research and development expenses and other charges associated with the Banner acquisition, partially offset by higher gross profit.

"This was another successful quarter for Patheon, and we are pleased with the ongoing performance of our business. The integration of Banner is complete, and our transformation initiatives continue to yield results as we implement operational excellence activities across our global network," stated Jim Mullen, Chief Executive Officer. "Overall, revenue flow across quarters has been more balanced this year, and we are encouraged by this continuing trend. We continue to drive additional margin from the business with our year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA margin of 13 percent compared to 9.5 percent in the prior period. We believe that Patheon remains on track to achieve anticipated revenues in excess of $1 billion this fiscal year."

Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter and Nine Month Period Ended July 31, 2013, Operating Results from Continuing Operations

Revenues for the third quarter increased $62.0 million, or 30.4 percent, to $265.7 million, from $203.7 million in the same period last year driven by $66.4 million of additional revenues resulting from the Banner acquisition. Commercial manufacturing (CMO) revenues for the third quarter increased $59.5 million, or 35.4 percent, to $227.8 million, from $168.3 million in the same period last year, primarily due to the additional revenues resulting from the Banner acquisition. Pharmaceutical Development Services (PDS) revenues for the third quarter increased $2.5 million, or 7.1 percent, to $37.9 million, from $35.4 million in the same period last year.

Revenues for the nine month period ended July 31, 2013 increased $194.0 million, or 36.0 percent, to $733.1 million, from $539.1 million in the same period last year, driven by growth in existing business and $144.2 million of additional revenues resulting from the Banner acquisition.

CMO revenues for the nine month period ended July 31, 2013 increased $189.3 million, or 43.2 percent, to $627.4 million, from $438.1 million in the same period last year, primarily due to additional revenues resulting from the Banner acquisition. PDS revenues for the nine month period ended July 31, 2013 increased $4.7 million, or 4.7 percent, to $105.7 million, from $101.0 million in the same period last year.

Gross profit for the third quarter improved by $15.6 million to $71.1 million, from $55.5 million in the same period last year, primarily due to an increase in volumes from the Banner acquisition. Patheon standalone margins improved primarily as a result of favorable foreign exchange rates.

Gross profit for the nine month period ended July 31, 2013 increased $66.6 million to $170.5 million, from $103.9 million for the same period last year. The increase in gross profit margin was driven by higher volumes and savings from operational excellence initiatives, partially offset by $5.0 million in increased costs of goods sold related to the fair value mark-up of Banner's inventory from the acquisition, $5.0 million in higher inventory write-offs and $3.1 million in product returns from a packaging site attributed to Banner operations.

Income from continuing operations for the third quarter was $4.3 million, or 3.1¢ per share for basic and 3.0¢ per share for diluted, compared to income from continuing operations of $15.5 million, or 12.0¢ per share, both basic and diluted, in the same period last year.

Loss from continuing operations for the nine month period ended July 31, 2013 was $46.9 million, or (33.7)¢ per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $83.3 million, or (64.3)¢ per share, both basic and diluted, in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA increased in the quarter to $41.0 million from $36.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of $4.6 million. Higher volumes and the results of operational excellence programs contributed to the increase. The Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter was 15.4 percent compared to 17.9 percent in the same period last year.

2013 Outlook

The company anticipates revenues for the combined enterprise to be in excess of $1 billion for fiscal 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Commencing in fiscal 2013, we revised our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA to exclude stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs related to our operational initiatives, purchase accounting adjustments, and acquisition-related litigation expenses. We believe that excluding these items from Adjusted EBITDA better reflects our underlying performance. Based on the revisions to the definition of Adjusted EBITDA, we have recast the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months periods ended July 31, 2012 to be consistent with the current period presentation. Our Adjusted EBITDA is now income (loss) from continuing operations before repositioning expenses, interest expense, foreign exchange losses reclassified from other comprehensive income (loss), refinancing expenses, acquisition and integration costs (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), gains and losses on sale of capital assets, income taxes, asset impairment charges, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs related to our operational initiatives, purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related litigation expenses and other income and expenses.  Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues. Since Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that does not have a standardized meaning, it may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of performance. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management as an internal measure of profitability. We have included Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that this measure is used by certain investors to assess our financial performance before non-cash charges and certain costs that we do not believe are reflective of our underlying business. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the closest U.S. GAAP measure is included with the financial statements in this press release.
