2020 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE (unaudited)

(I) Quarter Ended September 30, 2020 (Q3)

Revenues

Total Revenues

For Q3 2020, total revenues were $385.2 million, an increase of $73.4 million as compared to 2019. Total revenues reflect an increase in contract development and manufacturing services revenues partially offset by a decrease in product sales and contracts and grants revenues.

Product Sales

For Q3 2020, product sales were $202.2 million, a decrease of $54.0 million or 21% as compared to 2019. Other product sales increased due to increased sales of BAT®[Botulism Antitoxin Heptavalent (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) - (Equine)] and VIGIV [Vaccinia Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human)] offset by a decline in sales of travel health vaccines.

NARCAN® Nasal Spray $88.8 $75.0 18%

Other $38.5 $28.8 34%
Total Product Sales $202.2 $256.2 (21)%

Contract Development and Manufacturing (CDMO) Services

For Q3 2020, revenue from the Company’s contract development and manufacturing operations was $157.1 million, an increase of $137.1 million as compared to 2019. The increase is largely due to the contribution of arrangements across development, drug substance manufacturing, and drug product manufacturing services with industry and government customers.

Contracts and Grants

For Q3 2020, revenue from the Company’s development-based contracts and grants was $25.9 million, a decrease of $9.7 million as compared to 2019. The decrease primarily reflects the completion of development activities associated with the AV7909 product candidate in 2019, partially offset by recent new development awards related to the Company's COVID-19 product candidates.

Operating Expenses

Cost of Product Sales and Contract Development and Manufacturing (CDMO) Services

For Q3 2020, cost of product sales and contract development and manufacturing services was $149.0 million, an increase of $41.0 million or 38% as compared to 2019. The increase is primarily due to a charge of $29.9 million associated with contingent consideration liabilities due to the increased expectation that the Company will meet its final sales milestone for NARCAN® Nasal Spray, a charge of $13.8 million related to a write-down of inventory balances due to the expected expiration of a portion of the Company's travel health vaccines, and an increase in volume in CDMO services offset by a decline in volume of product sales.

Research and Development (Gross and Net)

For Q3 2020, gross R&D expenses were $84.4 million, an increase of $31.0 million or 58% as compared to 2019. The increase primarily reflects the impairment of the Company's in-process research and development (IPR&D) intangible asset of $29.0 million. Excluding this item, research and development expenses were consistent reflecting an increase in costs associated with the Company's COVID-19 therapeutic product candidates offset by a decrease in costs due to the completion of development activities associated with the Company's AV7909 product candidate.

For Q3 2020, net R&D expense, which reflects investments made in development programs that are not currently funded in whole or in part by third-party partners and is calculated as gross research and development expenses minus contracts and grants revenue and the impact of the IPR&D intangible asset impairment, was $29.5 million, an increase of $11.7 million or 66% as compared to 2019. The increase is attributable to an increase in costs associated with the Company's COVID-19 product candidates. The Q3 2020 and Q3 2019 net R&D expense was 8% and 6%, respectively, of adjusted revenue (total revenue less contracts & grants).

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q3 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses were $75.5 million, an increase of $10.5 million or 16% as compared to Q3 2019. The increase primarily reflects an increase in staffing costs to support the Company's growth.

Amortization of Intangible Assets

For Q3 2020, amortization of intangible assets was $15.0 million, which was consistent with amortization of intangible assets of $14.7 million in Q3 2019.

Income Taxes

For Q3 2020, the income tax provision was $15.5 million as compared to $15.7 million in Q3 2019. The decrease is due to a decrease in income before the provision for income taxes of $3.9 million, an increase in discrete tax benefits of $3.5 million, offset by the impact of non-deductible contingent consideration expense. The Company's effective quarterly tax rate, excluding discrete adjustments, was 34% and 26%, for Q3 2020 and Q3 2019, respectively. The effective quarterly tax rate, excluding the impact of non-deductible contingent consideration expense was 22% and 26%, for Q3 2020 and Q3 2019, respectively.

Research and Development (Gross and Net)

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, gross R&D expenses were $175.0 million, an increase of $11.6 million compared to 2019. The increase primarily reflects the impact of impairment of the Company's IPR&D intangible asset of $29.0 million. Excluding this item, gross R&D expense decreased $17.4 million compared to 2019. The decrease primarily reflects a decrease in costs in 2020 due to the completion of development activities associated with the Company's AV7909 product candidate in 2019.

2020 FINANCIAL FORECAST

Based upon the Company's financial performance year to date as well as expectations for the remainder of the year, the Company has updated its full year 2020 financial forecast reflected by the following financial metrics and accompanying operational considerations:

Financial Metrics

(in millions) Updated 2020 FORECAST (As of 11/5/2020) Previous 2020 forecast (As of 7/30/2020)
Total Revenues $1,520 - $1,580 $1,500 - $1,600
• NARCAN® Nasal Spray $295 - $315 $285 - $315
• Anthrax vaccines $350 - $370 $320 - $350
• ACAM2000 $160 - $200 $180 - $200
• CDMO $450 - $470 $440 - $460
Adjusted Net Income (1) $375 - $405 $340 - $390
Adjusted EBITDA (1) $575 - $615 $535 - $600

The following operational considerations are incorporated in the Company's forecast and remain consistent with the previous forecast:

  • Year over year improvement in gross margin of 400 - 600 basis points driven by improved product mix and increased contribution from the Company's CDMO business;
  • The previously announced delay into 2021 of the launch of the Phase 3 clinical study for CHIKV-VLP, the Company's chikungunya virus virus-like particle vaccine, due to the timing of certain operational factors;
  • The continued deferral into 2021 of a follow-on procurement contract with the U.S. government for raxibacumab, the Company's FDA-approved anthrax monoclonal antibody therapeutic, due to the impact of the prioritization of Operation Warp Speed on the Company's technology transfer activities for the product;
  • Continued challenges through the end of 2020 in the Company's travel health business and revenues associated with Vaxchora® (Cholera Vaccine, Live, Oral) and Vivotif® (Typhoid Vaccine Live Oral Ty21a);
  • No generic competition in 2020 for NARCAN® Nasal Spray.

The Company has assessed the risks to its business associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and has adopted measures to mitigate those risks as they are understood today and accordingly is providing this outlook for 2020. Despite the lack of expected material disruption to the business, the Company's executive management continues to assess the business and operational implications associated with the pandemic and market conditions on its employees, patients, and customers.

The outlook for 2020 does not include estimates for potential new corporate development or other M&A transactions.

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED EBITDA and GROSS MARGIN AND ADJUSTED GROSS MARGIN (unaudited)

This press release contains four financial measures (Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Depreciation and Amortization, Interest and Taxes, Gross Margin and Adjusted Gross Margin)) 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. Adjusted net income adjusts for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict, or reflect the non-cash impact of charges. All adjustments are tax effected utilizing the federal statutory tax rate for the US, except for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration as the vast majority is non-deductible for tax purposes. Adjusted net income margin is defined as adjusted net income divided by total revenues. Adjusted EBITDA reflects net income excluding the impact of depreciation, amortization, interest expense and income tax provision (benefit), excluding specified items that can be highly variable and the non-cash impact of certain accounting adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues. Gross margin reflects adjusted revenues minus cost of product sales and contract development and manufacturing services (COGS). Adjusted revenues is calculated as total revenues minus contracts and grants revenues. Gross margin percentage is calculated as gross margin divided by adjusted revenues. Adjusted gross margin adjusts COGS for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict, or to reflect the non-cash impacts of charges (Adjusted COGS). Adjusted gross margin is calculated as adjusted revenues minus adjusted COGS. Adjusted gross margin percentage is calculated as adjusted gross margin divided by adjusted revenues. 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.

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.
