Endo Reports First Quarter Financial Results

May 1, 2014

DUBLIN, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Total quarterly revenues of $595 million, reported diluted (GAAP) loss per share of $3.41 and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.92.
  • Company raises expected 2014 revenues to a range from $2.55 billion to $2.64 billion and raises expected 2014 adjusted diluted EPS to a range from $3.60 to $3.85.
  • Company expects 2014 reported diluted (GAAP) loss per share to be in the range from $1.35 to $1.10.
  • Company announced the acquisitions of Grupo Farmaceutico Somar and Sumavel DosePro as it continues to transform into a leading global specialty healthcare company.
  • Company entered into agreements to repurchase approximately $240 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015.
  • Company Reaches Agreements in Principle to Settle a Substantial Majority of AMS Litigation Cases.

Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL) today reported first quarter 2014 revenues of $595 million, compared to  first quarter 2013 revenues of $658 million. Endo reported a net loss of $437 million in first quarter 2014 compared to net income of $15 million in first quarter of 2013. As detailed in the supplemental financial information below, adjusted net income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased by 9 percent to $134 million, compared to adjusted net income of $123 million for the first quarter of 2013.

The net loss reported for the period is primarily attributable to a pre-tax, non-cash charge of approximately $625 million, to increase the company's product liability reserve for all known, pending and estimated future claims primarily related to vaginal mesh cases. As announced previously, the change in the accrual for product liability claims is attributable to agreements in principle that the company's AMS subsidiary has reached to resolve approximately 20,000 claims, which represents a substantial majority of the claims relating to vaginal mesh products.

Reported diluted loss per share for the first quarter of 2014 was $3.41, compared to first quarter 2013 reported earnings per share of $0.14.  Adjusted diluted EPS decreased by 16 percent to $0.92 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $1.09 for the same period in 2013. 

"We had a solid first quarter delivering strong operating results as we continue to execute against our strategic plans to transform Endo into a leading global specialty healthcare company," said Rajiv De Silva, President and CEO of Endo. "We completed two acquisitions during the first quarter and will continue to actively pursue additional business development opportunities throughout the year. We are focused on building a diversified and sustainable portfolio of product offerings through a combination of disciplined allocation of capital to strategic growth opportunities and investment in organic growth drivers for our existing businesses."

U.S. BRANDED PHARMACEUTICALS

On April 24, 2014 Endo announced that the company had acquired worldwide rights to Sumavel® DosePro® (sumatriptan injection) for subcutaneous use, a needle-free delivery system for sumatriptan, from Zogenix, Inc. The addition of Sumavel DosePro is expected to be immediately accretive to Endo's adjusted diluted earnings per share.

First quarter 2014 branded pharmaceutical revenues were $234 million, a 35 percent decrease compared to first quarter 2013 branded pharmaceutical revenues. This decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in net sales of LIDODERM®. First quarter 2014 net sales of LIDODERM decreased 82 percent compared to the first quarter 2013.  This decrease is attributable to the effects of the loss of market exclusivity for the product in September 2013. The decrease of LIDODERM sales in the first quarter was partially offset by $38 million of royalty revenues that Endo recognized per the terms of its previously announced Watson (now doing business as Actavis, Inc.) Settlement Agreement. 

Endo expects to launch an Authorized Generic (AG) version of LIDODERM imminently through its Qualitest business.  Endo obtained the right to launch an AG on May 1, 2014 according to the terms of its previously announced Watson (now doing business as Actavis, Inc.) Settlement Agreement.

First quarter 2014 net sales of Voltaren® Gel increased 4 percent when compared to first quarter 2013 net sales. This increase is attributable to growth in demand. According to IMS Health, total prescriptions for Voltaren Gel increased by 23 percent in the first quarter of 2014 when compared to the first quarter of 2013.

First quarter 2014 net sales of OPANA® ER decreased 17 percent compared to first quarter 2013. This decrease is primarily attributable to a year-over-year decrease in demand. According to IMS Health, total prescriptions for OPANA ER decreased by 13 percent compared to first quarter 2013.

U.S. GENERIC PHARMACEUTICALS
First quarter 2014 generic product net sales of $212 million represent an increase of 19 percent compared to first quarter 2013 generic product net sales. This increase is attributable to strong demand for Qualitest's diversified product portfolio and the addition of sales from Boca Pharmacal following the close of that acquisition on February 3, 2014. 

INTERNATIONAL PHARMACEUTICALS
On February 28, 2014, Endo completed the acquisition of Paladin Labs. The transaction accelerates the strategic transformation of Endo into a leading global specialty healthcare company and creates a platform for future growth in North America and around the globe.

On April 29, 2014, Endo announced a definitive agreement to acquire Grupo Farmaceutico Somar, a leading privately-owned specialty pharmaceuticals company based in Mexico City, Mexico. Somar is focused on the development, manufacturing, marketing and commercialization of high-quality products across all key market segments in Mexico. Endo expects the transaction to be immediately accretive to adjusted earnings per share.

First quarter 2014 sales of $24.8 million for the international segment are attributable to the Paladin Labs business following the close of the acquisition.

In addition, the company now expects the merger between Endo and Paladin Labs to be taxable to U.S. shareholders of Endo Health Solutions as a result of the shareholder gain from the transaction. The final determination is subject to the Company completing its shareholder basis study, which is expected to be finalized in 2014.

DEVICES
In the first quarter 2014, device sales were $124 million, an increase of 1 percent, at current exchange rates, compared to the first quarter of 2013. This increase is primarily attributable to increased sales for AMS's benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) business which increased 12 percent in the first quarter of 2013 when compared to the first quarter of 2013. This increase is primarily attributable to increased GreenLight fiber sales. 

In the first quarter 2014, Men's Health sales increased 1 percent compared to first quarter 2013. This increase is primarily attributable to growth in sales of male continence products including the AMS 800TM Urinary Control System and the AdVanceTM Male Sling System.

In the first quarter 2014 Women's Health sales decreased by 10 percent compared to the same period last year. The decrease in Women's Health sales is attributable to year-over-year declines in U.S.-based procedural volumes.

2014 Financial Guidance
Endo's estimates are based on projected results for the twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2014 and management's current belief about prescription trends, pricing levels, inventory levels and the anticipated timing of future product launches and events. The company's guidance for reported (GAAP) earnings per share does not include any estimates for potential new corporate development transactions. For the full twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2014, at current exchange rates, Endo estimates:

  • Total revenue to be between $2.55 billion and $2.64 billion
  • Reported (GAAP) diluted loss per share to be between  $1.35 and $1.10
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $3.60 and $3.85
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share assume full year adjusted diluted shares outstanding of 158 million

The company's 2014 guidance is based on certain assumptions including:

  • Adjusted gross margin of between 63 percent and 65 percent
  • Year-over-year low-double digit percentage decrease of Adjusted Operating Expenses
  • Adjusted interest expense of approximately $205 million
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of between 23 percent and 25 percent

Balance Sheet Update
In April 2014 the company entered into agreements to repurchase approximately $240 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 through privately negotiated transactions. In conjunction with the repurchase of the notes the company also plans to complete privately negotiated transactions to repurchase a proportional amount of the related warrants that are part of the convertible note hedge. The company expects the repurchase of the notes and the warrants to reduce the dilutive effects on its weighted average diluted shares outstanding for 2014.

As mentioned previously, the company increased its product liability reserve for all known, pending and estimated future claims primarily related to vaginal mesh cases by approximately $625 million raising the reserve to approximately $1.1 billion. The change in the reserve for product liability claims is attributable to the previously mentioned agreements in principle reached by the company's AMS subsidiary to resolve the substantial majority of claims relating to vaginal mesh products.

Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components and Non-GAAP Adjusted diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, we stress that these are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies. These Non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses performance. See Endo's Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an explanation of Endo's reasons for using non-GAAP measures.
