BAUDETTE, Minn., May 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANIP) (ANI or the Company) today announced financial results and business highlights for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Nikhil Lalwani, President and CEO of ANI stated, “Our record first quarter results demonstrate strength across all of our business segments. Our lead Rare Disease asset Cortrophin Gel experienced another quarter of robust year-over-year growth as prescription demand increased across our core specialties and our recent investments to expand awareness and utilization in new specialties began to yield results. We continue to believe that Cortrophin Gel has a long runway of growth driven by increasing market penetration and expansion of the overall ACTH market. This was further evidenced in April by achieving the highest number of new patient starts since launch.”

“Our Generics, Established Brands and Other segment also delivered strong performance in the first quarter. We are proud to report another quarter of double-digit increase in Generics revenue supported by strong new launch execution and operational excellence. We are energized by our first quarter results and look forward to building momentum throughout 2024 as we remain committed to our purpose of ‘Serving Patients, Improving Lives’,” concluded Mr. Lalwani.

First Quarter and Recent Business Highlights:

Rare Disease Segment

Revenues for the Company’s lead asset, Cortrophin Gel, totaled $36.9 million for the first quarter of 2024, an increase of 126.2% over the same period in 2023, driven by increased volume. During the quarter, the Company saw continued prescription growth across its core specialties of neurology, rheumatology, and nephrology, as well as traction in its newer specialties of pulmonology and ophthalmology. The Company continues to believe that its Rare Disease business remains ANI’s largest future growth driver and is actively exploring opportunities to acquire assets and/or establish partnerships to increase the scope and scale of the business.

Generics, Established Brands and Other Segment

Revenues for generic pharmaceuticals products, established brands and other grew 11.1% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2024. ANI’s Generics business launched six new products during the quarter, including a Competitive Generic Therapy (CGT) product with 180-day exclusivity. The Company retained its number two ranking for CGT approvals and top 15 ranking for overall generic approvals.

Net revenues for generic pharmaceutical products were $70.2 million, an increase of 10.2% year-over-year, driven by increased volumes in the base business and contribution from new products launched in 2023 and the first quarter 2024.

Net revenues for established brand pharmaceutical products, royalties, and other pharmaceutical services were $30.3 million, an increase of 13.2% year-over-year, driven by increased volume.

Net revenues for Rare Disease pharmaceutical products, which consist entirely of sales of Cortrophin Gel, were $36.9 million, an increase of 126.2% year-over-year driven by increased volume.

Operating expenses were $117.1 million, an increase of 20.9% year-over-year, as a result of the following factors:

  • Cost of sales increased 30.4% year-over-year to $49.2 million, primarily due to significant growth in sales volumes of pharmaceutical products across all segments.
  • Research and development expenses increased 77.4% year-over-year to $10.5 million, primarily due to a higher level of activity associated with ongoing and new projects.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased 31.7% year-over-year to $48.0 million, primarily due to increased employment-related costs, investment in our Rare Disease sales and marketing infrastructure and activities, legal expenses, as well as an overall increase in activities to support revenue growth.

During the first quarter of 2024, ANI completed the sale of its Oakville, Ontario, Canada manufacturing facility for $14.2 million and recognized a gain of $5.3 million on the sale. The Company also recognized a gain of $9.7 million on its investment in CG Oncology, which completed an initial public offering in January 2024.

Net income available to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2024 was $17.8 million as compared to net income of $1.0 million in the prior year period. Diluted GAAP earnings per share for the first quarter of 2024 was $0.82 compared to $0.06 in the prior year period.

Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA for the first quarter of 2024 was $37.6 million, an increase of 14.0% over the first quarter of 2023.

Adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $1.21 in the first quarter of 2024 compared to $1.17 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 below, respectively.

Liquidity

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $228.6 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, $172.4 million in net accounts receivable and $293.3 million (face value) in outstanding debt. The Company generated cash flow from operations of $18.3 million in the first quarter of 2024.

Full Year 2024 Guidance:

    2024 Guidance   2023 Actual   Growth
Net Revenue (Total Company)   $520 million - $542 million   $486.8 million   7% - 11%
Cortrophin Gel Net Revenue   $170 million - $180 million   $112.1 million   52% - 61%
Adjusted Non-GAAP EBITDA   $135 million - $145 million   $133.8 million   1% - 8%
Adjusted Non-GAAP Diluted EPS   $4.26- $4.67   $4.71   (10)% - (1)%
             

ANI continues to expect total company adjusted non-GAAP gross margin between 62% and 63% and the Company will continue to tax effect non-GAAP adjustments for computation of adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share at a tax rate of 26.0%.

The Company now anticipates between 19.4 million and 19.7 million shares outstanding (reflective of a full year of shares outstanding resulting from the May 2023 equity raise) for the purpose of calculating diluted EPS and now expects its U.S. GAAP effective tax rate to be between 22.0% to 25.0% as compared to 20.0% to 22.0%.

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 provision or benefit, interest expense, (net), other expense, (net), depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, Novitium transaction expenses, contingent consideration fair value adjustment, unrealized gain on our investment in equity securities, gain on sale of the former Oakville, Ontario manufacturing site, litigation expenses related to certain matters, 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.

ANI is not providing a reconciliation for the forward-looking full year 2024 adjusted EBITDA guidance because it does not currently have sufficient information to accurately estimate all of the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation, including “with” and “without” tax provision information. As such, ANI’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on its reported results.

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 non-cash stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization, Novitium transaction expenses, contingent consideration fair value adjustment, unrealized gain on our investment in equity securities, gain on sale of the former Oakville, Ontario manufacturing site, litigation expenses related to certain matters, 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 non-cash stock-based compensation expense, Novitium transaction expenses, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, contingent consideration fair value adjustment, unrealized gain on our investment in equity securities, gain on sale of the former Oakville, Ontario manufacturing site, litigation expenses related to certain matters, 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. 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 non-cash stock-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, depreciation and amortization, Novitium transaction expenses, contingent consideration fair value adjustment, unrealized gain on our investment in equity securities, gain on sale of the former Oakville, Ontario manufacturing site, litigation expenses related to certain matters, 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. 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 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.

ANI is not providing a reconciliation for the forward-looking full year 2024 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance because it does not currently have sufficient information to accurately estimate all of the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation, including “with” and “without” tax provision information. As such, ANI’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on its reported results.

The adjustment of Canada operations represents revenues, cost of sales and expense that will not recur after the completion of the closure of our Canada operations (complete as of March 31, 2023) and the sale of the facility (complete as of March 31, 2024). The adjustment of Canada operations does not adjust for revenues, cost of sales, and expense that will recur at our other manufacturing facilities after the transfer of certain manufacturing activities is complete.

(2) The Company corrected the Impact of Canada Operations in the Selling, general, and administrative expenses column for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The Company determined that the correction is not material to the previously issued US GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation. Adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2023 did not change from the original Press Release and Form 8-K filed on May 8, 2023 as a result of this correction.
