Impax Laboratories Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

August 02, 2011

HAYWARD, Calif., Aug 02, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Impax Laboratories, Inc.(NASDAQ: IPXL) today reported second quarter ended June 30, 2011 financial results.

"Our second quarter 2011 revenues and earnings were lower than the prior year period primarily due to higher second quarter 2010 sales from the remaining exclusive period of generic Flomax(R) . However, our second quarter 2011 revenues improved sequentially over the first quarter 2011 revenues and exceeded our expectations," said Larry Hsu, Ph.D., president and CEO, Impax Laboratories, Inc. "The sequential improvement was primarily due to the late April receipt of our supplier's initial product shipment from 2011 quota of generic Adderall XR(R) which resulted in second quarter generic Adderall XR(R) product sales of $58.2 million, as compared to $36.1 million in the first quarter of 2011."

Dr. Hsu continued, "We began to receive generic Adderall XR(R) product supply from our supplier's 2011 quota during the quarter, although below our request for quantities sufficient to satisfy strong customer demand. The supply helped us alleviate some of the customer backorder for the product. Nonetheless, our second quarter 2011 sales of the product were still lower than the prior year period and customer demand for generic Adderall XR (R) continues to exceed available supply. We continue to pursue every available means to acquire sufficient product to meet this demand. In the third quarter of 2011, assuming continued receipt of scheduled shipments, our generic Adderall XR(R) sales could be similar to second quarter 2011 levels, while fourth quarter expectations will depend on additional updated shipment information from our supplier in August and September 2011."

Revenues 2011 2010 $ change % change
Generic and brand products and services $ 64.0 $ 62.3 $ 1.7 3 %
Generic Adderall XR (R) 58.2 63.3 (5.1 ) (8 %)
Generic Flomax(R) 3.7 27.4 (23.7 ) (87 %)
Total Revenues $ 125.9 $ 153.0 $ (27.1 ) (18 %)
  • Total revenue was $125.9 million compared to $153.0 million in the prior year period primarily due to higher second quarter 2010 sales from the remaining exclusive period of generic Flomax(R), whereby the Company had contractual market exclusivity starting on March 2, 2010 and continuing for the succeeding eight week period. The entry of competing generic versions of Flomax(R) into the market in late April 2010 resulted in both price erosion and reduction in the Company's market share.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), excluding adjusted items, was $25.6 million compared to $54.8 million in the prior year period (generic Flomax(R) contributed $22.3 million to the second quarter 2010 EBITDA, excluding adjusted items).
  • Net income, excluding adjusted items, was $15.1 million compared to $32.8 million in the prior year period (generic Flomax(R) contributed $14.1 million to the second quarter 2010 net income, excluding adjusted items).
  • Net income per diluted share, excluding adjusted items, was $0.22 compared to $0.50 in the prior year period (generic Flomax(R) contributed $0.22 to the second quarter 2010 net income per diluted share, excluding adjusted items).
  • Net income was $12.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $31.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share in the prior year period.

Please refer to "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP items.

Dr. Hsu further stated, "We are working expeditiously to resolve the manufacturing observations raised in the warning letter to the satisfaction of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In late June 2011, we submitted our warning letter response and will continue to cooperate with the FDA to resolve the observations. We have already made significant manufacturing and quality control systems improvements and believe we have addressed a number of the FDA's observations. Upon our internal completion, we will request a re-inspection of our Hayward facility by the FDA, the timing of which is wholly dependent upon the FDA's availability. Based on our most recent estimate, we expect to incur charges of approximately $10.0 million in 2011 related to the development and implementation of manufacturing and quality control systems improvements associated with our response to the observations raised in the warning letter."

"This current interruption has not impacted our ability to execute our long-term growth strategy. We have a significant pipeline of generic products pending at the FDA and continue to file Abbreviated New Drug Applications which we believe will create additional product launch opportunities. Regarding our brand business, we remain on schedule to file a New Drug Application for IPX066, our leading brand product candidate for Parkinson's Disease, in the fourth quarter of 2011. We also remain active pursuing external opportunities with the potential to further drive future growth," concluded Dr. Hsu.

Global Pharmaceuticals Division revenues in the second quarter of 2011 were $120.6 million compared to $149.5 million in the prior year period, the reduction in revenues were driven by a decrease in Global Product sales, net, as discussed below.

For the second quarter of 2011, Global Product sales, net, were $111.1 million, down $26.9 million from the prior year period due to a $23.8 million decline in sales of generic Flomax(R) as noted above, and a $5.1 million decline in sales of authorized generic Adderall XR(R) products, partially offset by higher sales of our fenofibrate products. The decrease in sales of authorized generic Adderall XR(R) was principally the result of product supply disruptions.

Gross profit of $57.3 million represents a 48% gross margin in the second quarter of 2011, and was lower than the 56% gross margin for the prior year period primarily due to higher sales of our generic Flomax(R) products in the second quarter of 2010 which carried a higher average gross margin during the contractual market exclusivity period.

Total generic operating expenses of $18.6 million in the second quarter of 2011 increased $2.8 million over the prior year period primarily due to higher spending on research and development.

Impax Pharmaceuticals Division revenues in the second quarter of 2011 increased $1.7 million to $5.3 million over the prior year period due to the addition of Rx Partner revenues.

In the second quarter of 2011, the Company recognized $1.4 million of Rx Partner revenue related to the $11.5 million up-front payment (recognized over 24 months) received under the License, Development and Commercialization Agreement with Glaxo Group Limited which was entered into in December 2010.

The loss from operations in the second quarter of 2011 is a result of the Company's strategy to invest in research and development to develop brand products which provide longer product life cycles and the potential for significantly higher profit margins than generic products.

Corporate general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2011 increased $3.6 million compared to the prior year period primarily due to an increase in legal fees.

Cash and short-term investments were $335.5 million as of June 30, 2011, as compared to $348.4 million as of December 31, 2010. The decline is primarily due to capital expenditures during the six month period ended June 30, 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net income excluding adjusted items, net income per diluted share excluding adjusted items, and EBITDA excluding adjusted items, are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be construed as substitutes for, or superior to, net income, and net income per diluted share as a measure of financial performance. However, management uses both GAAP financial measures and the disclosed non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate and manage the Company's operations and to better understand its business. Further, management believes the inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplementary information to and facilitates analysis by investors in evaluating the Company's financial performance, results of operations and trends. The Company's calculation of net income excluding adjusted items, net income per diluted share excluding adjusted items and EBITDA excluding adjusted items, may not be comparable to similarly designated measures reported by other companies, since companies and investors may differ as to what type of events warrant adjustment.
