HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE: TARO) (“Taro”) today provided unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Quarter ended June 30, 2020 Highlights - compared to Quarter ended June 30, 2019

  • Net sales of $117.6 million, decreased $43.7 million.

  • Net (loss) income attributable to Taro was $(434.9) million. Excluding the settlement and loss contingencies charges, net income was $29.0 million compared to $66.2 million.

Mr. Uday Baldota, Taro’s CEO stated, “Regarding our results — they reflect the challenging times that we are facing, not only due to the continuing uncertainty of the duration and impact of the COVID─19 pandemic, but also in the overall U.S. generic industry — which we believe will continue in the foreseeable future. We are happy to have reached a resolution with the DOJ, so that we can move forward and sharpen our focus on growing our business.”

FDA Approvals and Filings

Taro recently received approvals from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for three Abbreviated New Drug Applications (“ANDAs”): Betamethasone Dipropionate Spray, 0.05%, Doxepin Hydrochloride Capsules USP, and Butalbital, Acetaminophen and Caffeine Capsules USP. Taro currently has a total of nineteen ANDAs awaiting FDA approval, including five tentative approvals.

Taro Achieves Global Resolution of DOJ Antitrust Investigations

On July 23, 2020, Taro Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. (“Company”), globally resolved all matters related to the Company in connection with the multi-year investigations by the Department of Justice, Antitrust Division and Civil Division (“DOJ”) into the U.S. generic pharmaceutical industry. Under a Deferred Prosecution Agreement reached with DOJ Antitrust, the DOJ will file an Information for conduct that took place between 2013 and 2015. If the Company adheres to the terms of the agreement, including the payment of $205.7 million, the DOJ will dismiss the Information at the end of a three-year period. The Company has also reached a framework understanding with DOJ Civil, subject to final agreement and agency authorization, in which the Company has agreed to pay $213.3 million to resolve all claims related to federal healthcare programs. Accordingly, a charge of $418.9 million is taken in the current quarter and shown as Settlements and loss contingencies.
