Q4 2019 AND RECENT BUSINESS ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Awarded a contract by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) in the U.S.
    Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) valued at up to $490 million over 10 years ($90
    million agreed to currently and the remaining $400 million to be negotiated and finalized over six months from date of award) for the continued supply of BAT® [Botulism Antitoxin Heptavalent (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) - (Equine)] into the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) in support of botulism preparedness and response capabilities.

  • Announced updated results from the interim analysis of the Company's Phase 2 clinical study evaluating the safety and immunogenicity of its chikungunya virus (CHIKV) virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine candidate, CHIKV    VLP, across a series of dosing regimens. The interim analysis has shown  that  after  the  first  dose  is administered, up to 98% of study participants produced a neutralizing antibody response against CHIKV within seven days of vaccination and that the immune response persisted for at least one year for subjects who  received a single dose.

  • Announced a new five-year growth strategy, 2020 - 2024, and 2024 financial and operational goals during the Company's Analyst and Investor Day.

  • Announced that the Company's CHIKV VLP was granted PRIority MEdicines, or PRIME, designation by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
  • Awarded a research grant by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a component of the National Institutes of Health, HHS, valued at approximately $6.3 million over two years, for the continued development of AP007, the Company's sustained-release nalmefene formulation for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD).

  • Announced a settlement agreement in the ongoing litigation with Perrigo related to Perrigo's abbreviated new    drug application (ANDA) seeking to market a generic version of NARCAN®(naloxone HCI) Nasal Spray. The agreement is subject to customary final approvals.

2019 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE (Unaudited)

(I)Quarter Ended December 31, 2019 (Unaudited)

Revenues

Total Revenues

For Q4 2019, total revenues were $360.4, an increase of 33% over the same period in Q4 2018. The increase in total revenues largely reflects increased contribution during the period from ACAM2000®(Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live) and NARCAN® Nasal Spray, partially offset by a decrease from Anthrax Vaccines (BioThrax®(Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed) and AV7909 (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed with Adjuvant)).

Product Sales

For Q4 2019, product sales were $310.8 million, an increase of $93.4 million or 43% as compared to Q4 2018. The increase primarily reflects increased sales of both NARCAN®Nasal Spray, and ACAM2000®, offset by decreased sales of Anthrax Vaccines.

  Three Months Ended December 31,

Product Sales:      
NARCAN Nasal Spray $66.9 $41.7 60%

Other 72.5 41.4 75%
Total Product Sales $310.8 $217.4 43%

Contract Development and Manufacturing Services (CDMO)

For Q4 2019, revenue from the Company's CDMO services was $25.5 million, a decrease of $1.4 million or 5% as compared to Q4 2018. The decrease primarily reflects contracted service work in Q4 2018 that did not recur in Q4 2019.

Contracts and Grants

For Q4 2019, revenue from the Company's contracts and grants supporting certain of the Company's development programs was $24.1 million, a decrease of $2.3 million or 9% as compared to Q4 2018, due to reduction in activities on funded programs.

Operating Expenses

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Development and Manufacturing Services

For Q4 2019, cost of product sales and CDMO services was $132.8 million, an increase of $19.6 million or 17% as compared to Q4 2018. The increase is attributable to the increase in product sales during the period.

Research and Development (Gross and Net)

For Q4 2019, gross R&D expenses were $62.8 million, an increase of $10.8 million or 21% as compared to Q4 2018. The increase primarily reflects the impairment of our IPR&D intangible asset acquired as part of the Adapt Pharma acquisition.

For Q4 2019, net R&D expense, which reflects investments made in development programs  that  are  not  currently funded in whole or in part by third-party partners and  is  calculated  as  gross  research  and  development  expenses minus contracts and grants revenue and impairment of IPR&D, was $26.7 million, an increase of $1.1 million or 4% as compared to Q4 2018. The increase primarily reflects a reduction in raxibacumab technology  transfer  costs, partially offset by increases related to the development of the CHIKV VLP vaccine candidate  and various  programs related  to opioid overdose response. The Q4 2019 net R&D expense was 8% of adjusted revenue (total revenue less contracts & grants) compared to 10% of adjusted revenue in Q4 2018.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q4 2019, selling, general and administrative expenses were $72.2 million, an improvement of $8.8 million or 11% as compared to Q4 2018. The decrease primarily reflects one time items in Q4 2018 related to the acquisitions of PaxVax and Adapt Pharma.

Amortization of Intangible Assets

For Q4 2019, amortization of intangible assets was $14.8 million as compared to $13.3 million in Q4 2018. The increase reflects a full three months of non-cash intangible asset amortization costs in Q4 2019 associated with the PaxVax and Adapt Pharma acquisitions which occurred during Q4 2018.

Income Tax

For Q4 2019, the income tax expense in the amount of $24.6 million includes the impact of permanent items, most notably the non-deductible contingent consideration expense related to the Adapt Pharma acquisition.

Product Sales

For the year ended December 31, 2019, product sales were $903.5 million, an increase of $297.0 million or 49% as compared to 2018. The increase primarily reflects increased sales of NARCAN®Nasal Spray, which was acquired in October 2018, and ACAM2000®, offset by decreased sales of Anthrax Vaccines (BioThrax®and AV7909).

For the year ended December 31, 2019, revenue from the Company's CDMO services was $80.0 million, a decrease of

The increase primarily reflects increased R&D activities related to certain ongoing  funded  development  programs, most notably AV7909, partially offset by a reduction in development funding for ACAM2000 stability testing  which  was performed during 2018 for which no similar services were provided in 2019.

Operating Expenses

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Development and Manufacturing Services

For the year ended December 31, 2019, cost of product sales and CDMO services was $433.5 million, an increase of $111.2 million or 35% as compared to 2018. The increase is attributable to the increase in product sales.

Research and Development (Gross and Net)

For the year ended December 31, 2019, gross R&D expenses were $226.2 million, an increase of  $83.4  million compared to 2018. The increase reflects costs associated with development programs from the acquisitions of PaxVax   and Adapt Pharma in October 2018, including costs associated with the development  of  the  CHIK  VLP  vaccine candidate, timing of manufacturing development activities related to the AV7909 program and the impairment of our IPR&D intangible asset acquired as part of the Adapt Pharma acquisition.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, net R&D expense, which reflects investments made in development programs that are not currently funded in whole or in part by third-party partners and is calculated as gross research and development expenses minus contracts  and grants  revenue  and impairment  of IPR&D, was $91.7 million, an  increase of $25.9 million or 39% as compared to 2018. The increase primarily reflects investments in the development of the CHIKV VLP vaccine and various programs related to opioid overdose response. The twelve months of 2019 net R&D expense was 9% of adjusted revenue (total revenue  less contracts  & grants)  compared  to 9%  of adjusted revenue  in the twelve months of 2018.

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME, EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA (unaudited)

The company assesses five financial measures (Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income margin, EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin) 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. All adjustments are tax effected utilizing the federal statutory tax rate for the US, except for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration as the vast majority is non-deductible for tax purposes. Adjusted Net Income margin is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by total revenues. 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. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues. 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.
