Arthur S. Przybyl, President and CEO, stated,

"Our first quarter financial results generated record net revenues of $10.9 million, an increase of 96%, and non-GAAP EBITDA of $4.2 million, an increase of over 500%, as compared to last year.  More importantly, our net prescription sales increased by 150% due to market share gains and price increases.  In mid-April, we implemented a price increase for our EEMT product, the full effect of which is anticipated to affect revenues in the second half of the year, and in January we entered into an exclusive license and supply agreement for Esterified Estrogen raw material. 

From our 45 pipeline products, we have prioritized 22 that, once commercialized, are expected to be the main contributors to our five-year revenue model and business plan. These include internally developed, partnered, and acquired products on which we will focus for the next several quarters. We remain committed to launching our first product that was acquired from Teva in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Finally, during the quarter, our operations generated $5.2 million in positive cash flow and we successfully completed a capital raise, funds that enable us to pursue growth through acquisitions. Today, we have over $50 million in cash and no debt on our balance sheet."  

First Quarter Results

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, ANI reported net revenues of $10.9 million, an increase of 96% from $5.6 million in the prior year period. The increase in revenues was primarily due to a 150% increase in net prescription sales from $3.5 million to $8.8 million, primarily due to increased sales of and price increases for ANI's Esterified Estrogen with Methyltestosterone Tablet ("EEMT") product. Development services and royalty revenues also increased by $0.2 million, or 54%. This was partially offset by a 7% decrease in contract sales, from $1.7 million to $1.6 million.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA was $4.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to $0.7 million in the prior year period. 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 24% from 43%, primarily due to price increases for EEMT.

Research and development costs were $0.4 million and $0.3 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The slight increase was due to the timing of development projects.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased to $3.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 from $2.3 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to increased costs associated with being a public company. First quarter 2013 SG&A expense included $0.1 million of merger-related expenses.

Operating income was $3.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared to $0.4 million in the prior year period. The first quarter 2013 operating income included $0.1 million of merger-related expenses.

Net income was $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared to $0.3 million in the prior year period. Diluted EPS for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $0.33.

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 operation results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation, merger-related expenses, 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, stock-based compensation expense, and merger-related operating expenses.  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.
