Product Sales, net

Anthrax MCM

For Q2 2023, revenues from Anthrax MCM decreased $74.6 million as compared with Q2 2022. The decrease reflects the impact of timing of sales related to CYFENDUS (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed, Adjuvanted), previously known as AV7909, and BioThrax® (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed), partially offset by an increase in sales of Anthrasil® [Anthrax Immune Globulin Intravenous (human)].

NARCAN

For Q2 2023, revenues from NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) Nasal Spray increased $32.3 million as compared with Q2 2022. The increase was primarily driven by higher branded NARCAN sales to U.S. public interest channels and Canadian retail sales, partially offset by lower commercial retail sales in the U.S. following the termination of the Company's relationship with Sandoz related to the authorized generic NARCAN product.

Smallpox MCM

For Q2 2023, revenues from Smallpox MCM increased $107.9 million as compared with Q2 2022. The increase was primarily due to the exercise and full delivery during the quarter of a $120 million option by the U.S. government (USG) to purchase ACAM2000, partially offset by lower VIG sales due to timing.

Other Products

For Q2 2023, revenues from other product sales decreased $0.6 million as compared with Q2 2022. The decrease was primarily due to lower BAT sales, partially offset by higher RSDL sales.

CDMO

CDMO Services

For Q2 2023, revenues from contract development and manufacturing services increased $23.7 million as compared with Q2 2022. The increase was primarily driven by work at the Company's Canton facility for a CDMO customer and resolution of a customer's outstanding obligation. In the prior year quarter, there was a reversal of revenue related to the halt in manufacturing under the Janssen Agreement.

CDMO Leases

For Q2 2023, revenues from contract development and manufacturing leases increased $7.2 million as compared with Q2 2022. The lease revenue in the current year quarter is related to the Company's Canton facility. In the prior year quarter, there was a reversal of revenue recognized related to the Janssen Agreement termination.

Contracts and Grants

For Q2 2023, revenues from contracts and grants decreased $0.7 million as compared with Q2 2022. The decrease was due to changes in the mix and timing of various development initiatives.

Operating Expenses

($ in millions) Q2 2023 Q2 2022 % Change
Cost of product sales $134.9 $91.0 48%
Cost of CDMO $55.7 $78.8 (29)%

* % change is greater than +/- 100%
NM - Not Meaningful

Cost of Product Sales

For Q2 2023, cost of product sales increased $43.9 million as compared with Q2 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher sales of ACAM2000 and NARCAN, partially offset by lower sales of CYFENDUS, coupled with higher allocations to product COGS at the Company's Bayview facility and an increase in Trobigard inventory related costs.

Cost of CDMO

For Q2 2023, cost of CDMO decreased $23.1 million as compared with Q2 2022. The decrease was primarily due to reduced production activities at the Company's Bayview facility related to the halt in manufacturing under the Janssen Agreement, partially offset by higher costs at its Camden facility related to additional investments in quality enhancements and improvement initiatives as well as increased production at the Company's Canton facility related to work for a CDMO customer.

Long-Lived Asset Impairment Charge

For Q2 2023, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $306.7 million related to certain asset groups within our CDMO reporting unit. The asset groups were written down only to the extent their carrying value was higher than their respective fair values. The Company, with the assistance of a third-party valuation firm, applied valuation methods to estimate the fair values for each of the assets within the different asset classes to determine the amount of the impairment.

Prior to recording the impairment charge, the Company performed recoverability tests on the impacted asset groups within the CDMO reporting unit and concluded that the asset groups were not recoverable as the undiscounted expected cash flows did not exceed their carrying values. The indicators for the impairment were related to the deterioration in performance and resulting downward revisions to our internal CDMO forecasts, including future expected cash flows, that took place during the preparation of our financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

Research and Development (2)

For Q2 2023, R&D expenses decreased $23.8 million as compared with Q2 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of the Company's development program for CHIKV VLP to Bavarian Nordic, which was a significant contributor to prior period R&D expense.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q2 2023, selling, general and administrative expenses increased $10.3 million as compared with Q2 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher professional services fees related to general corporate initiatives, including ongoing organizational transformation consulting and legal remediation efforts.

ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION (1)

Capital Expenditures

($ in millions) Q2 2023 Q2 2022 % Change
Capital expenditures $12.5 $32.1 (61)%  
Capital expenditures as a % of total revenues 4% 13% (900) bps

For Q2 2023, gross capital expenditures decreased largely due to lower product development activities across the Company's facilities.

At-The-Market Equity Offering Program (ATM Program)

In Q2 2023, the Company initiated its "at-the-market" equity offering program (ATM Program). During the quarter ended June 30, 2023, the Company sold 1.1 million shares of its common stock under the ATM Program for gross proceeds of $9.1 million, representing an average price of $8.22 per share.

Segment Information

The Company manages the business with a focus on two reportable segments: the Products segment, which includes the Anthrax MCM products, NARCAN products, Smallpox MCM products and Other products; and, the Services segment, which consists of CDMO services. The Company evaluates the performance of these reportable segments based on revenue and Adjusted Gross Margin, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. 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 the three months ended June 30, 2023, Product gross margin and Product adjusted gross margin increased $21.1 million and $22.1 million, respectively, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. Product gross margin percentage decreased 7 percentage points to 55% for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The decrease in gross margin percentage was largely due to increases in shutdown related costs and inventory write-offs.

For the three months ended June 30, 2023, Services gross margin increased $54.0 million, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. Services gross margin percentage improved to (91)% for the three months ended June 30, 2023. The improvement in gross margin percentage was primarily due to one-time costs and reserves related to the Janssen Agreement in the prior year quarter, partially offset by additional investments in quality enhancement and improvement initiatives at the Company's Camden facility in the current year.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release contains financial measures (Adjusted Net Loss, Adjusted Net 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 Loss and Net Loss per Diluted Share to Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss per Diluted Share," "Reconciliation of Net 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.

SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, including statements regarding the future performance of the Company or our business strategy, future operations, future financial position, future revenues and earnings, statements regarding the expected timing for implementation of its restructuring activities, its total and cash cost, our ability to achieve the objectives of the restructuring, including our future results, projected costs, prospects, plans and objectives of management and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, are forward-looking statements. We generally identify forward-looking statements by using words like “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “goal,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” should,” “will,” “would,” and similar expressions or variations thereof, or the negative thereof, but these terms are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. Forward-looking statements are based on our current intentions, beliefs and expectations regarding future events. We cannot guarantee that any forward-looking statement will be accurate. You should realize that if underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or if known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could differ materially from our expectations. You are, therefore, cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and, except as required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect new information, events or circumstances.

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 CYFENDUSTM (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; the commercial availability, including the timing of availability, of over-the-counter NARCAN® (naloxone HCI) Nasal Spray; 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 the amended and restated credit agreement relating to such facilities, and our 3.875% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2028; 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; our ability to realize the expected benefits of the sale of our travel health business to Bavarian Nordic; 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 impact of cyber security incidents, including the risks from the interruption, failure or compromise of our information systems or those of our business partners, collaborators or other third parties; 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.
