Catalent Delays Third Quarter Results and Conference Call and Provides Update on Fiscal 2023 Guidance
SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Catalent Inc. (NYSE: CTLT), the leader in enabling the development and supply of better treatments for patients worldwide, today announced that it will be delaying the release of its third fiscal quarter results and investor conference call, previously scheduled for Tuesday, May 9, 2023. The Company currently anticipates filing a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission no later than May 11, 2023. The Company now expects to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q on May 15, 2023, prior to the expiration of the extension period provided by Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On April 14, 2023, the Company issued a press release providing a business update, which stated that the Company expected that productivity issues and higher-than-expected costs experienced at three of its facilities, including two of its largest manufacturing facilities, will materially and adversely impact the Company’s financial results for the third fiscal quarter and its outlook for the remainder of the 2023 fiscal year. In addition to these operational challenges, the Company has also since identified significant issues with its forecasts over the past year, which are currently being addressed.
Last week, in the course of finalizing its financial statements for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2023, the Company identified certain potential non-cash adjustments related to its operations in Bloomington, Indiana, and will need more time to review this matter prior to filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q on May 15, 2023.
When combining the operational and productivity issues, the prior forecasting challenges, and, less significantly, the potential non-cash adjustments, the Company expects to significantly reduce both its fiscal 2023 net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance by more than $400 million each. In addition, the Company expects that its income statement and balance sheet will reflect a goodwill impairment in our consumer health business of more than $200 million, primarily related to its October 2021 acquisition of Bettera Wellness.
“We understand the importance of timely financial reporting and apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay in our quarterly filing and investor conference call. We are dissatisfied with our recent results and are taking the necessary steps to address the issues that negatively impacted our performance, which fell well short of our prior projections,” said Alessandro Maselli, President and Chief Executive Officer of Catalent, Inc. “We are confident that our recent operational challenges are temporary and addressable, and we are working intensively to return to our historic productivity levels. We are also increasing the rigor of our forecasting, to ensure that we can more effectively anticipate and respond to the increased complexity in our business and the challenging macroeconomic environment. We believe the fundamentals of our business remain strong, with a platform that plays a critical role in the global healthcare ecosystem. Furthermore, our reduced outlook for fiscal 2023 was not due to any GMP compliance issue or the loss of any customer or cancelled order. Our customers’ supply situations remain healthy, and we believe we can sufficiently service their demand.”
