Patheon reports fourth quarter and full fiscal 2012 results

Underlying business growth of 15.3 percent with strong margin improvements

Completion of the acquisition of Banner Pharmacaps announced Friday

TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Patheon Inc. (TSX: PTI), a leading provider of contract development and manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry, announced today full year and fourth quarter results for fiscal 2012.

For the full year:

  • Revenues were $749.1 million versus $700.0 million last year, an increase of 7.0 percent.  Excluding the $50.3 million benefit from the contract cancellation recorded last year, revenue would have increased by 15.3 percent.
  • Gross profit for the year was $159.3 million compared to $131.8 million last year, an increase of 20.9 percent. Excluding the $50.3 million benefit from the contract cancellation recorded last year, gross profit would have increased by 95.5 percent.
  • The loss before discontinued operations was $106.4 million compared to a loss before discontinued operations of $15.8 million last year.  The increase was primarily due to the asset impairment charge of $57.9 million related to the wind down of the Swindon, U.K. facility recorded in the second quarter, and the $36.6 million Canadian tax valuation reserve recorded on the company's Canadian deferred tax asset in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $71.1 million compared to $66.4 million last year, an increase of 7.1 percent. Excluding the $50.3 million benefit from the contract cancellation recorded last year, Adjusted EBITDA would have increased by $55.0 million.

For the fourth quarter:

  • Revenues were $210.0 million versus $181.6 million in the same period last year.   Excluding currency fluctuations, revenues would have been approximately 18.7 percent higher than the same period last year.
  • Gross profit was $55.4 million compared to $33.5 million in the same period last year.
  • The loss before discontinued operations was $23.0 million compared to a loss before discontinued operations of $9.8 million in the same period last year. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 includes the $36.6 million Canadian tax valuation reserve discussed above.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $35.9 million compared to $14.5 million in the same period last year.

"We had strong revenue growth throughout the year, and we believe the flow through to Adjusted EBITDA was excellent," said James C. Mullen, Patheon's Chief Executive Officer.  "Our progress with the core business positioned us to acquire Banner and we are excited to welcome our Banner colleagues to Patheon.  We look forward to continued success in executing our strategy in 2013."

Full Year and Fourth Quarter Operating Results from Continuing Operations

Revenues were $749.1 million for fiscal 2012 versus $700.0 million in the same period last year, an increase of 7.0 percent.  Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, revenue would have increased by 10.1 percent.

Commercial manufacturing ("CMO") revenues for fiscal 2012 were $610.7 million up from $572.6 million for fiscal 2011, an increase of 6.7 percent. Excluding the $50.3 million benefit from the contract cancellation recorded last year, revenue would have increased by 17.0 percent. Pharmaceutical Development Services ("PDS") revenues for fiscal 2012 were $138.4 million up from $127.4 million for fiscal 2011.

Revenues in the fourth quarter were $210.0 million up from $181.6 million for the same period last year. Excluding currency fluctuations, revenues would have been approximately 18.7 percent higher than the same period of the prior year.

CMO revenues for the fourth quarter were $172.7 million up from $146.9 million for the same period last year, an increase of 17.6 percent. PDS revenues for the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 were $37.5 million up from $34.9 million for the same period last year, an increase of 7.4 percent.

Gross profit for fiscal 2012 was $159.3 million up from $131.8 million in the same period last year. Excluding the $50.3 million benefit from the contract cancellation recorded last year, gross profit would have increased by $77.8 million. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenue and an improved gross profit margin of 21.3 percent for fiscal 2012 versus 18.8 percent for fiscal 2011. The increase of gross profit was due to savings from our Operational Excellence and Procurement initiatives, a decrease in depreciation expense and the impact of higher volumes.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter was $55.4 million up from $33.5 million in the same period last year. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenue and an improved gross profit margin of 26.4 percent versus 18.5 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The increase in gross profit margin was due to savings from our Operational Excellence and Procurement initiatives, a decrease in depreciation expense and the impact of higher volumes.

The loss before discontinued operations for fiscal 2012 was $106.4 million or 82.4¢ per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a loss before discontinued operations of $15.8 million or 12.2¢ per share, both basic and diluted, in fiscal 2011. The loss before discontinued operations for fourth quarter was $23.0 million or 17.8¢ per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a loss before discontinued operations of $9.7 million or 7.5¢ per share, both basic and diluted, in fiscal 2011.

Included in the loss before discontinued operations for fiscal 2012 was the asset impairment charge of $57.9 million recorded in the second quarter related to the Swindon, U.K. facility wind down, as well as the $36.6 million Canadian tax valuation reserve recorded on the company's net Canadian tax assets in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.  If our Canadian legal entity returns to sustained profitability in future periods the valuation allowance may be reversed.

At the end of fiscal 2012, Patheon had liquidity of $93.8 million from cash and cash equivalents of $39.4 million and $64.4 million from available lines of credit.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
References in this press release to "Adjusted EBITDA" are to income (loss) before discontinued operations before repositioning expenses, interest expense, foreign exchange losses reclassified from other comprehensive income (loss), refinancing expenses, acquisition related costs, gains and losses on sale of capital assets, gain on extinguishment of debt, income taxes, asset impairment charges, depreciation and amortization and other income and expenses. 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 these non-GAAP measures should not be construed as alternatives to income (loss) before discontinued operations determined in accordance with GAAP as indicators of performance.  Adjusted EBITDA is used by management as an internal measure of profitability.  The company has included these measures because it believes that this information is used by certain investors to assess its financial performance, before non-cash charges and certain costs that the company does not believe are reflective of its underlying business.  An Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation of these amounts to the closest U.S. GAAP measure is included with the financial statements in this press release.

Caution Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect our expectations regarding our future growth, results of operations, performance (both operational and financial) and business prospects and opportunities.  All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements.  Wherever possible, words such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "forecasts", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "believes", "intends" and similar expressions or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "should", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved have been used to identify these forward-looking statements.   Although the forward-looking statements contained in this press release reflect our current assumptions based upon information currently available to us and based upon what we believe to be reasonable assumptions, we cannot be certain that actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements.   Our current material assumptions include assumptions related to customer volumes, regulatory compliance, foreign exchange rates, employee severance costs associated with termination, and projected integration savings related to our acquisition of Banner.  Forward-looking statements necessarily involve significant known and unknown risks, assumptions and uncertainties that may cause our actual results, performance, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, risks related to international operations and foreign currency fluctuations; customer demand for our services; regulatory matters affecting manufacturing and pharmaceutical development services; impacts of acquisitions, divestitures and restructurings, including our ability to achieve our intended objectives with respect to such transactions and integrate businesses that we may acquire; implementation of our new corporate strategy; our ability to effectively transfer business between facilities; the global economic environment; our exposure to complex production issues; our substantial financial leverage; interest rate risks; potential environmental, health and safety liabilities; credit and customer concentration; competition; rapid technological change; product liability claims; intellectual property; the existence of  a significant shareholder; supply arrangements; pension plans; derivative financial instruments; and our dependence upon key management, scientific and technical personnel.  For additional information regarding risks and uncertainties that could affect our business, please see Item 1A "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2011 and our subsequent filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and with the Canadian Securities Administrators.  Although we have attempted to identify important risks and factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors and risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.  There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.  Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this press release and, except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update or revise them to reflect new events or circumstances.
