Total contract revenue for the third quarter of 2015 was $101.4 million, an increase of 76% compared to total contract revenue of $57.5 million reported in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted contract margins were 25% for the third quarter of 2015, compared with 8% for the third quarter of 2014.

Royalty revenue in the third quarter of 2015 was $3.2 million, a decrease of 35% from $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2014 due primarily to lower royalties on Allegra (fexofenadine) products which have ended. Royalty revenue for the third quarter of 2015 includes royalties from the net sales of certain amphetamine salts sold by Allergan (formerly Actavis) and royalties from net sales of an API sourced in Spain.

Net loss under U.S. GAAP was $(4.2) million, or $(0.12) per share, in the third quarter of 2015, compared to U.S. GAAP net loss of $(8.6) million, or $(0.27) per share for the third quarter of 2014. Net income on an adjusted non-GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2015 was $5.1 million or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss of $(0.6) million or $(0.02) per diluted share for 2014.  For a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP net income and earnings per diluted share as reported to adjusted net income and earnings per diluted share for the 2015 and 2014 reporting periods, please see Tables 2 and 3 at the end of this press release.

Beginning in the second quarter 2015, AMRI implemented an updated non-GAAP definition, which includes the impact of cash interest expense and excludes the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation, both of which had previously been excluded and included, respectively in the Company's calculations of these non-GAAP financial measures. These changes have redefined non-GAAP cost of contract revenue, SG&A, interest expense, net income, and EBITDA financial measures from the prior non-GAAP definition.
