“Our financial and operational performance is solidly in line with expectations and we are confident in a strong finish to the year, driven by our organic business as well as the impact of the PaxVax and Adapt Pharma acquisitions,” said Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, CEO of Emergent BioSolutions. He continued, “Strategically, we have broadened our reach into the public health threats market, strengthened our portfolio of unique products, and expanded the patients and customers that we serve. Operationally, we have added substantial manufacturing and sales capabilities, diversified our product development pipeline, and strengthened our pool of engaged and talented employees. Financially, we now expect to achieve our 2020 revenue goal of at least $1 billion in 2019, a full year ahead of schedule, bolstering our ability to create long-term shareholder value.”

Richard S. Lindahl, CFO of Emergent BioSolutions, said, “The acquisitions of Adapt Pharma and PaxVax create a step-change forward for Emergent. On a combined basis, we expect the two entities to contribute between $270 and $300 million of incremental revenue and to be accretive to adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA in 2019. We are actively engaged in integration and our entire team is excited to move forward together as we continue to diversify our revenue sources, realize scale efficiencies and drive strong cash flow from the now larger Emergent business operations.”

Q3 2018 AND RECENT BUSINESS ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Acquisitions

  • Acquired specialty vaccines company PaxVax and its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vaccines for typhoid, Vivotif® (Typhoid Vaccine Live Oral Ty21a), and cholera, Vaxchora® (Cholera Vaccine, Live, Oral), along with a development pipeline focused on infectious disease vaccines and related U.S.- and Europe-based manufacturing infrastructure.

  • Acquired Adapt Pharma and its flagship product NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) Nasal Spray, the first and only needle-free presentation of naloxone approved by the FDA and Health Canada, for the emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, and the leading community-use option for naloxone delivery.

For the nine months of 2018, the provision for income tax expense in the amount of $11.8 million includes a discrete benefit of $8.7 million primarily related to stock compensation activity and finalizing positions taken on the Company's 2017 US federal and state income tax filings, resulting in an effective tax rate of 15%.

CALCULATION OF DILUTED EARNINGS PER SHARE

For both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, net income per diluted share was calculated using the “treasury method.”

For both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, net income per diluted share is computed using the “if-converted” method. Such a method only applies to results prior to November 14, 2017, the date the Company terminated conversion rights associated with the 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the Notes). This method requires net income to be adjusted to add back interest expense and amortization of debt issuance cost, both net of tax, associated with the Notes. The following table details the adjustments made in this calculation.

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME, EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA

This press release contains two financial measures (Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), and Adjusted EBITDA) that are considered “non-GAAP” financial measures under applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company’s definition of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. Adjusted Net Income adjusts for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict or reflect the non-cash impact of charges resulting from purchase accounting (which are all tax effected utilizing the statutory tax rate for the US). EBITDA reflects net income excluding the impact of depreciation, amortization, interest expense and provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes specified items that can be highly variable and the non-cash impact of certain purchase accounting adjustments (which are all tax effected utilizing the statutory tax rate for the US). The Company views these non-GAAP financial measures as a means to facilitate management’s financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of the Company’s historical operating results and comparison to competitors’ operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measure, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business.

The determination of the amounts that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures are a matter of management judgment and depend upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
