Product Sales, net

Anthrax vaccines

For Q4 2022, revenues from anthrax vaccines decreased $86.8 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease was largely driven by a decrease in deliveries of AV7909 (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed, Adjuvanted) to the U.S. government (USG), specifically the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS).

ACAM2000

For Q4 2022, revenues from ACAM2000® (Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live) decreased $125.8 million to $0.0 as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease was driven by the timing of deliveries to the USG.

Nasal naloxone products

For Q4 2022, revenues from nasal naloxone products decreased $29.5 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in commercial retail sales and a decrease in the price per unit following the launch of a generic version of NARCAN Nasal Spray 4mg in December 2021, partially offset by an increase in U.S. public interest and Canadian sales.

TEMBEXA

TEMBEXA® (brincidofovir) sales, following the Company’s September 2022 acquisition of worldwide rights to TEMBEXA®, contributed $117.6 million in revenues for Q4 2022.

Other (4)

For Q4 2022, revenues from other product sales decreased $4.1 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease was primarily due to lower sales of two of the Company’s Government/Medical Countermeasure (MCM) products: i) BAT® [Botulism Antitoxin Heptavalent (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) - (Equine)], driven by timing of deliveries to the SNS and to international customers; and, ii) VIGIV [Vaccinia Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human)], driven by timing of deliveries to the SNS and international customers. These were partially offset by an increase in sales of Vivotif® (Typhoid Vaccine Live Oral Ty21a) and Anthrasil® [Anthrax Immune Globulin Intravenous (human)].

CDMO

CDMO Services

For Q4 2022, revenues from contract development and manufacturing services decreased $33.5 million as compared with Q4 2021. This decrease was largely due to no revenues in the quarter from the AstraZeneca and Janssen contracts both of which contributed combined revenues of $31.8 million in Q4 2021. Specifically, there was a cessation of manufacturing activities under the AstraZeneca contract at the Company’s Bayview facility in 2021, and a pause and eventual cessation of manufacturing activities under the Janssen contract initiated in Q1 2022. The decrease also reflects reduced production at the Camden facility in the quarter driven by additional investments in strengthening quality and compliance that restricted the Company’s ability to optimally utilize the existing capacity at the site. These declines in revenues were partially offset by an increase in services revenues earned at the Company’s Winnipeg facility.

CDMO Leases

For Q4 2022, revenues from contract development and manufacturing leases decreased $166.9 million as compared with Q4 2021. This decrease was largely due to no revenues in the quarter from the lease components of the contracts with the Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (“CIADM”) and Janssen, which contributed a combined $167.1 million in revenues in Q4 2021.

Contracts and Grants

For Q4 2022, revenues from contracts and grants decreased $63.5 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease was a result of $59.7 million being recognized in Q4 2021, primarily deferred revenue, which was lower in Q4 2022 as a result of the termination of the base CIADM contract coupled with decreases in third party development activities.

Operating Expenses

($ in millions) Q4 2022 Q4 2021 % Change
Cost of product sales $167.3 $145.0 15%
Cost of CDMO $52.1 $67.9 (23)%
Research and development $57.6 $83.0 (31)%
Selling, general and administrative $94.2 $94.2 —%
Goodwill impairment $6.7 $41.7 (84)%
Amortization of intangible assets $17.9 $14.0 28%
Total operating expenses $395.8 $445.8 (11)%
       

Cost of Product Sales

For Q4 2022, cost of product sales increased $22.3 million as compared with Q4 2021. The increase was primarily due to an increase in product sales for TEMBEXA and inventory write offs related to AV7909, partially offset by decreases in product sales for ACAM2000 and generic and branded nasal naloxone products.

Cost of CDMO

For Q4 2022, cost of CDMO decreased $15.8 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease is primarily due to reduced production activities across the Company’s CDMO network in Q4 2022 compared to Q4 2021. These decreases were partially offset by increased costs at the Company’s Camden facility due to additional investments in quality enhancement and improvement initiatives.

Research and Development (2)

For Q4 2022, research and development expenses decreased $25.4 million as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease is primarily due to the non-cash write-off of $38.0 million associated with a contract asset balance resulting from the 2021 CIADM contract termination, partially offset by an increase in costs associated with the Company’s Phase 3 R&D efforts in chikungunya. Net of contracts and grants revenue, which consists primarily of reimbursements against development investments, adjusted research and development expenses were $50.5 million for Q4 2022.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q4 2022, selling, general and administrative expenses were consistent with Q4 2021.

Goodwill Impairment

During Q4 2022, as part of its annual goodwill impairment testing, the Company recognized a $6.7 million impairment charge to goodwill in the CDMO Services reporting unit reducing the reporting unit’s goodwill balance to zero as of December 31, 2022.

Capital Expenditures

Net capital expenditures as a % of total revenues 6% (2)% 800 bps
* % change is greater than +/- 100%
 

For Q4 2022, gross capital expenditures decreased largely due to lower spending associated with the expansion project at the Company’s Rockville facility, which was completed in 2021.

Segment Information

During Q1 2022, the Company began assessing its operating performance by focusing on two reportable segments: 1) a products segment (Products) consisting of the MCM and Commercial products and 2) a services segment (Services) consisting of CDMO business services. The Company evaluates the performance of these segments based on revenue and adjusted gross margin. Segment revenue includes external customer sales but does not include inter-segment services. The Company does not allocate contracts and grants, R&D, SG&A, amortization of intangible assets, interest and other income (expense) or taxes to its evaluation of the performance of these segments.

For Q4 2022, Product gross margin and Product adjusted gross margin decreased $150.9 million and $99.6 million, respectively, as compared with Q4 2021. The decrease in Product gross margin and Product adjusted gross margin was primarily due to decreased sales volumes and inventory write-offs combined with a less favorable mix weighted more heavily to lower margin products.

For Q4 2022, Services gross margin and Services adjusted gross margin each decreased $184.6 million, as compared with Q4 2021. The decreases are primarily due to the decline in revenue at the Company’s Bayview facility as a result of the completion of the Company’s arrangement with BARDA, the cessation of manufacturing activities related to the AstraZeneca and Janssen contracts, and the decrease in margins at the Company’s Camden facility due to additional investments in quality enhancement and improvement initiatives, including an increase in professional services costs.

For 2022, Product gross margin and Product adjusted gross margin decreased $99.8 million and $48.7 million, respectively as compared with 2021. The decrease in Product gross margin and Product adjusted gross margin are primarily due to decreased sales volumes and inventory write-offs combined with a less favorable mix weighted more heavily to lower margin products.

For 2022, Services gross margin and Services adjusted gross margin each decreased $415.4 million as compared with 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the decline in revenue at the Company’s Bayview facility as a result of the completion of the Company’s arrangement with BARDA, the cessation of manufacturing activities related to the AstraZeneca and Janssen contracts, and the decrease in margins at the Company’s Camden facility due to additional investments in quality enhancement and improvement initiatives, including an increase in professional services costs.

2023 FINANCIAL FORECAST

The Company provides the following financial forecast for full year 2023 and Q1 2023, in both instances reflecting management’s expectations based on the most current information available.

Full Year 2023

Beginning in 2023, the Company is revising the categories used in discussing product/service level revenues. The new categories will be as follows:

  • Anthrax Medical Countermeasures (Anthrax MCM) — comprises potential contributions from AV7909, BioThrax, Anthrasil and raxibacumab
  • NARCAN — comprises contributions from NARCAN Nasal Spray
  • Smallpox Medical Countermeasures (Smallpox MCM) — comprises potential contributions from ACAM2000, VIGIV and TEMBEXA
  • CDMO — comprises service and lease revenues from the contract development and manufacturing business
  • Other Products — includes potential contributions from BAT, RSDL, Trobigard, Vaxchora and Vivotif
($ in millions) Full Year 2022 Actual Full Year 2023 Forecast
Total Revenues $1,120.9 $1,100 - $1,200
Net Loss $(223.8) $(180) - $(130)
Adjusted Net Loss (2) $(111.9) $(80) - $(30)
Adjusted EBITDA (2) $26.1 $75 - $125
Adjusted Gross Margin % (2) 36% 41% - 44%
 
Product/Service Level Revenue
•        Anthrax MCM $290.1 $260 - $280
•        NARCAN $373.7 $290 - $310
•        Smallpox MCM $234.4 $235 - $255
•        CDMO $113.3 $115 - $135
•        Other Products $137.2 $165 - $185
     

The full year 2023 financial forecast reflects the following key considerations.

  • Excludes the potential impact of the sale of the travel health business to Bavarian Nordic first announced on 02/15/2023; the Company will update the full year 2023 forecast to reflect the impact of this transaction once it has closed, which is anticipated in Q2 2023.
  • Reflects an assumed approval for over-the-counter NARCAN Nasal Spray, subsequent launch by the end of the summer 2023 and continued strong demand in the U.S. public interest (PIP) channel and Canada.
  • Reflects continued procurement and delivery of the Company’s anthrax, smallpox and other related medical countermeasures (MCM) products to the U.S. and allied governments.
  • Reflects the continued re-baselining of the CDMO services business overall as well as the impact of reduced production output from the Camden facility.

Q1 2023

The Q1 2023 total revenue forecast reflects management’s expectation for revenues and profitability in 2023 to be weighted towards the second half of the year.

($ in millions) Q1 2023 Forecast
Total Revenues $130 - $150

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release contains financial measures (Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Shares, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted Gross Margin %, Adjusted Revenues, Adjusted Cost of Sales and Adjusted Research and Development Expenses) 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. For its non-GAAP measures, the Company adjusts for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict, or reflect the non-cash impact of charges or accounting changes. As needed, such adjustments are tax effected utilizing the federal statutory tax rate for the U.S., except for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration as the vast majority is non-deductible for tax purposes. 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. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) and Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Diluted Share,” “Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA,” “Reconciliation of Total Revenues to Adjusted Revenues, Cost of Sales to Adjusted Cost of Sales, and Gross Margin and Gross Margin % to Adjusted Gross Margin and Adjusted Gross Margin %,” and “Reconciliation of Research and Development Expenses to Adjusted Research and Development Expenses” included at the end of this release.

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.

There are a number of important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including, among others, the availability of USG funding for contracts related to procurement of our medical countermeasures, including AV7909 (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed (AVA), Adjuvanted), BioThrax® (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed) and ACAM2000®, (Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live), among others, as well as contracts related to development of medical countermeasures; our ability to meet our commitments to quality and compliance in all of our manufacturing operations; our ability to negotiate additional USG procurement or follow-on contracts for our medical countermeasures products that have expired or will be expiring; failure to obtain, or delays in obtaining, approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of NARCAN® (naloxone HCI) Nasal Spray for over-the-counter use; the impact of the generic marketplace on NARCAN® (naloxone HCI) Nasal Spray and future NARCAN sales; our ability to perform under our contracts with the USG, including the timing of and specifications relating to deliveries; our ability to provide CDMO services for the development and/or manufacture of product and/or product candidates of our customers at required levels and on required timelines; the ability of our contractors and suppliers to maintain compliance with current good manufacturing practices and other regulatory obligations; our ability to negotiate new CDMO contracts and the negotiation of further commitments related to the collaboration and deployment of capacity toward future commercial manufacturing under our existing CDMO contracts; our ability to collect reimbursement for raw materials and payment of services fees from our CDMO customers; the results of pending shareholder litigation and government investigations and their potential impact on our business; our ability to comply with the operating and financial covenants required by our senior secured credit facilities and our 3.875% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2028; our ability to refinance our senior secured credit facilities prior to their maturity in October 2023; the procurement of our product candidates by USG entities under regulatory authorities that permit government procurement of certain medical products prior to U.S. Food and Drug Administration marketing authorization, and corresponding procurement by government entities outside of the United States; the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our markets, operations and employees as well as those of our customers and suppliers; the impact on our revenues from and duration of declines in sales of our vaccine products that target travelers due to the reduction of international travel caused by the COVID-19 pandemic; the ability of the Company and Bavarian Nordic to consummate the transactions contemplated under the agreement pursuant to which we agreed to sell our travel health business, to meet expectations regarding the conditions, timing and completion of the transactions, and to realize the potential benefits of the transactions; the impact of the organizational changes we announced in January 2023 on our business; our ability to identify and acquire companies, businesses, products or product candidates that satisfy our selection criteria; the success of our commercialization, marketing and manufacturing capabilities and strategy; and the accuracy of our estimates regarding future revenues, expenses, capital requirements and needs for additional financing. The foregoing sets forth many, but not all, of the factors that could cause actual results to differ from our expectations in any forward-looking statement. When evaluating our forward-looking statements, you should consider this cautionary statement along with the risks identified in our reports filed with the SEC. New factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors, nor can it assess the impact of any such factor on the business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.
