“My initial two months as CEO of ANI Pharmaceuticals have been rewarding, as I have set forth to evaluate the state of the business and begun to build plans for the next phase of ANI’s growth. I have completed tours of our manufacturing facilities, conducted dozens of one-on-ones and small group discussions with our team, commercial customers, CDMO clients, key suppliers and external stakeholders. All of these interactions have contributed to understanding our challenges, and importantly, our opportunities and what we need to do to realize their full potential. These include the significant opportunity with Cortrophin Gel, a strong North American manufacturing footprint that can be leveraged further and a robust portfolio of ANDAs, several of which have limited competition. In addition, the target-rich acquisition environment will enable us to build on our strong track record of pursuing accretive in-organic opportunities to enhance scale and capabilities in our company. I am excited to lead ANI at this important time in the company’s journey,” stated Nikhil Lalwani, President and CEO.

Net revenues for generic pharmaceutical products were $37.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of 18.8% compared to $31.8 million for the same period in 2019, primarily due to the January 2020 launch of Miglustat, Penicillamine, and Paliperidone, all products acquired from Amerigen. The increases were tempered by declines in revenues of Ezetimibe Simvastatin, Vancomycin Capsules, and Methazolamide.

Net revenues for branded pharmaceutical products were $12.4 million during the three months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of 25.3% compared to $16.6 million for the same period in 2019, primarily due to lower unit sales of Inderal XL and Innopran XL and a decline in revenues of Atacand.

Contract manufacturing revenues were $2.2 million during the three months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of 9.4% compared to $2.4 million for the same period in 2019, due to a decreased volume of orders from contract manufacturing customers in the period.

Royalty and other revenues were $0.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $0.1 million from $0.6 million for the same period in 2019, primarily due to an increase in product development revenues earned by ANI Canada and an increase in royalty revenues.

Operating expenses increased to $50.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, from $44.0 million in the prior year period.

Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization, increased by $5.1 million to $20.1 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily as a result of increased volumes related to a shift in product mix toward generic products and increased sales of products subject to profit-sharing arrangements.

Research and development expense decreased by $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2020 to $2.9 million compared with $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2019, primarily due to a decrease in expense related to the Cortrophin re-commercialization project. The Company currently anticipates that Cortrophin-related expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020 will be moderately higher than those of the third quarter, as we continue to focus on our sNDA resubmission efforts.

Selling, general and administrative expenses rose by $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 to $15.7 million compared to $14.4 million in the comparable quarter in 2019. The increase primarily reflects increased pharmacovigilance compliance costs in continued support of the expansion of our commercial portfolio, and increased legal, insurance and other professional fees.

Depreciation and amortization increased by $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2020 to $11.4 million compared to $9.5 million in the comparable quarter in 2019 due to amortization of the Abbreviated New Drug Applications (“ANDAs”), and marketing and distribution rights acquired in January 2020 from Amerigen and the ANDA acquired in July 2020.

Net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.4 million as compared to net income of $3.9 million in the prior year period. Diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $0.04, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.32 in the prior year period.

Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.97 in the third quarter of 2020 compared to adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.23 in the prior year period.

For reconciliations of adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA and adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see Table 3 and Table 4, respectively.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had $17.9 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents plus $83.7 million in net accounts receivable. The Company had $187.9 million in outstanding debt as of September 30, 2020.

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 operating results unaffected by non-cash stock-based compensation 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 net income, excluding tax expense or benefit, interest expense, (net), other expense, (net), depreciation, amortization, the excess of fair value over cost of acquired inventory, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, CEO transition expenses, expense from acquired in-process research and development, transaction and integration expenses, Cortrophin pre-launch charges, and certain other items that vary in frequency and impact on ANI’s results of operations. 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 below.

Adjusted non-GAAP Net Income

ANI’s management considers adjusted non-GAAP net income to be an important financial indicator of ANI’s operating performance, providing investors and analysts with a useful measure of operating results unaffected by the excess of fair value over cost of acquired inventory sold, non-cash stock-based compensation, CEO transition expenses, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization, Cortrophin pre-launch charges, acquired in-process research and development (“IPR&D”) expense, transaction and integration expenses and certain other items that vary in frequency and impact on ANI’s results of operations. Management uses adjusted non-GAAP net income when analyzing Company performance.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income is defined as net income, plus the excess of fair value over cost of acquired inventory sold, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, CEO transition expenses, transaction and integration expenses, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, expense from acquired in-process research and development, Cortrophin pre-launch charges and certain other items that vary in frequency and impact on ANI’s results of operations, less the tax impact of these adjustments calculated using an estimated statutory tax rate, and tax benefit related to the ANI Canada transfer pricing agreement. Management will continually analyze this metric and may include additional adjustments in the calculation in order to provide further understanding of ANI’s results. Adjusted non-GAAP net income should be considered in addition to, but not in lieu of, net income reported under GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP net income to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided below.

Adjusted non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share

ANI’s management considers adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be an important financial indicator of ANI’s operating performance, providing investors and analysts with a useful measure of operating results unaffected by the excess of fair value over cost of acquired inventory sold, non-cash stock-based compensation, CEO transition expenses, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization, Cortrophin pre-launch charges, acquired IPR&D expense, transaction and integration expenses and certain other items that vary in frequency and impact on ANI’s results of operations. Management uses adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when analyzing Company performance.

Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is defined as adjusted non-GAAP net income, as defined above, divided by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding during the period, as adjusted for the dilutive effect of the convertible debt notes (in 2019), when applicable. Management will continually analyze this metric and may include additional adjustments in the calculation in order to provide further understanding of ANI’s results. Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share should be considered in addition to, but not in lieu of, diluted earnings or loss per share reported under GAAP. A reconciliation of adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided below.
