  • GAAP net income of $35 to $45 million; non-GAAP adjusted net income of $50 to $60 million

"Our business performance to date has been strong based on our expanded product portfolio, growing contract manufacturing operations and robust contracts, grants and collaboration funding," said Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Emergent BioSolutions. "Given this performance and our outlook for the remainder of the year, we are increasing our full year 2014 revenue forecast to $440 to $460 million, increasing our GAAP net income forecast to $35 to $45 million and increasing our non-GAAP adjusted net income forecast to $50 to $60 million."

2014 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

(I) Quarter Ended September 30, 2014 (unaudited)

Revenues

Product Sales

For Q3 2014, product sales were $84.5 million, an increase of 11% as compared to 2013. The increase primarily reflects sales from Biosciences Division products which were acquired as part of the Cangene acquisition in Q1 2014.

Total Product Sales $84.5 $76.3 11%

Contract Manufacturing

For Q3 2014, revenues from our contract manufacturing operations, which were acquired in the Cangene acquisition in Q1 2014, were $9.4 million. These operations comprise contract services including, among other things, biopharmaceutical product development, product filling, lyophilization and ongoing stability studies on behalf of commercial third parties.

Contracts, Grants and Collaboration

For Q3 2014, contracts, grants and collaboration revenue was $44.1 million, an increase of 244% as compared to 2013. The increase was primarily due to the recognition of $15.3 million of a $20.0 million upfront fee associated with the MorphoSys collaboration as well as development funding for product development programs that were acquired in the Cangene acquisition in Q1 2014. The MorphoSys collaboration provides for joint worldwide development and commercialization of MOR209/ES414, the company's immunotherapeutic protein targeting prostate cancer.

Contracts, grants and collaboration revenue consist primarily of reimbursements paid by the US government for research and development expenditures for the company's biodefense programs. It also includes license fees and collaboration-related revenues associated with development partnerships the company has established with third parties.

Operating Expenses

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Manufacturing

For Q3 2014, cost of product sales and contract manufacturing was $32.4 million, an increase of 62% as compared to 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to product and contract manufacturing costs associated with the operations of Cangene, which were acquired in Q1 2014.

Research and Development

For Q3 2014, gross research and development (R&D) expenses were $44.2 million, an increase of 53% as compared to 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to additional R&D expenditures associated with product development programs that were acquired in the Cangene acquisition in Q1 2014. Gross R&D expenses include contract service costs and development expenses related to product candidates, technology platforms and manufacturing capabilities in both the Biodefense and Biosciences divisions.

Net R&D expenses, which more accurately reflect the company's actual out-of-pocket investment in product development, are calculated as gross research and development expenses less contracts, grants and collaboration revenues and the net loss attributable to non-controlling interest. For Q3 2014, net R&D expenses were $0.1 million, a decrease of 99% as compared to 2013.

2014 FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

Factoring in the financial performance through the nine months ended September 30, 2014, and expected performance through the end of the year, the company is revising its 2014 financial outlook as follows:

 (in millions) Twelve Months Ended
December 31, 2014
  Revised Previous
Total Revenues $440 to $460 $425 to $450
GAAP Net Income $35 to $45 $30 to $40
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income $50 to $60 $40 to $50

The company's outlook for GAAP net income does not include any estimates for potential new corporate development or other M&A transactions.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

This press release contains a financial measure, adjusted net income, which is considered a "non-GAAP" financial measure under applicable Securities & Exchange Commission rules and regulations. This non-GAAP financial measure 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 this non-GAAP measure may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. The non-GAAP financial measure used in this press release 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. The company views this non-GAAP financial measure as a means to facilitate management's financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Emergent's historical operating results and comparison to competitors' operating results. This non-GAAP financial measure reflects 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 Emergent's business.

The determination of the amounts that are excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure is a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts. The company is likely to exclude the following items from its non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) in the future, the effect of which is uncertain but may be significant in amount:

  • Expenses related to completed and future acquisitions of other businesses, including amortization of acquired intangible and tangible assets, transaction costs and integration costs;
  • Non-cash charges related to the impairment of intangible or tangible assets;
  • Expenses associated with restructuring activities, including but not limited to, accelerated depreciation, severance costs and lease abandonment charges; and
  • Other non-recurring charges.

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.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST INFORMATION

Company management will host a conference call at 5:00 pm (Eastern Time) on Thursday, November 6, 2014 to discuss these financial results. This conference call can be accessed live by telephone or through Emergent's website:
