EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cambrex Corporation (NYSE: CBM), a leading provider of development, manufacturing, testing and technology services for small molecules, reports results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Highlights

-- Announced the acquisition of Avista Pharma Solutions (“Avista”), an early clinical phase Contract Development, Manufacturing and Testing Organization, for approximately $252 million in total cash consideration. This transaction closed on January 2, 2019. -- Net revenue was $134.3 million under current U.S. GAAP, ASC 606 (“ASC 606”). Under ASC 605, the previous revenue recognition standard, and the only standard under which fourth quarter 2017 results were reported, Net revenue increased 16% compared to the same quarter last year. -- Under current U.S. GAAP, Income from continuing operations was $1.3 million and Diluted EPS was $0.04 per share. This reflects the impacts of the timing of certain tax charges related to tax reform in New Jersey. Under previous U.S. GAAP utilizing ASC 605, Income from continuing operations would have been $32.3 million and Diluted EPS from continuing operations would have been $0.96 per share compared to Income from continuing operations of $40.2 million and Diluted EPS of $1.20 in the same quarter last year. Adjusted Income from continuing operations was $48.7 million and Diluted EPS was $1.44, compared to $42.3 million and $1.26, respectively, for the same quarter last year (see table at the end of this press release). -- Under ASC 606, EBITDA was $33.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of adopting ASC 606, Halo’s results and Acquisition and Integration costs, was $70.7 million compared to $65.1 million in the same quarter last year (see table at the end of this press release). -- Net debt was $204.1 million at the end of the quarter, a decrease of $23.7 million during the quarter primarily driven by cash flows from operations. -- The Company expects full year 2019 Net revenue, which excludes the impact of foreign currency, to be between 21% and 25% higher than 2018 Net revenue as recorded under ASC 606 for both years. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $150 and $160 million (see Financial Expectations – Continuing Operations section below for related explanations and additional financial guidance).

“We’re very excited to add the early stage development and testing capabilities of Avista Pharma, which when added to the drug product capabilities of Halo Pharma, which we acquired a few months ago, and Cambrex’s legacy drug substance capabilities, makes us a leading global provider of end to end integrated services for small molecules. Combining Cambrex, Halo and Avista will allow us to follow a small molecule from pre-clinical through commercialization and leverage hundreds of new customers and molecule opportunities across a much broader services and manufacturing platform. Integration efforts are well under way with the goal of building a best-in-class fully integrated contract development and manufacturing organization,” commented Steven M. Klosk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cambrex.

“Looking forward, we continue to see strong market conditions in the sectors that we serve. This is especially true in early stage development and testing, where we expect continued strong growth, creating the potential for a large funnel of molecules for which we hope to deliver a broad range of services all the way through commercial approval.”

Basis of ReportingThe Company has provided a reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted (i.e. Non-GAAP) amounts at the end of this press release. Cambrex management believes that the adjustments provide useful information to investors due to the magnitude and nature of certain amounts recorded under GAAP.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results – Consolidated, Continuing OperationsNet revenue under ASC 606 was $134.3 million. Under ASC 605, the revenue recognition standard for which 2017 results were reported, Net revenue increased to $212.3 million, or 16%, from $182.3 million in the same quarter last year. Results under ASC 605 include a 2% unfavorable impact of foreign exchange compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. Net revenue during the fourth quarter of 2018 includes the acquisition of Halo, now our finished dosage form segment, which contributed revenue of $23.4 million under ASC 606 and $23.2 million under ASC 605. Excluding finished dosage form Net revenues, higher sales of controlled substances was the primary driver of the increase under ASC 605 compared to the same quarter last year.

Gross margin under ASC 606 was 36% for the fourth quarter of 2018. Under ASC 605, Gross margin was 41% compared to 43% in the same quarter last year. Excluding the finished dosage form segment and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange, ASC 605 Gross margin during the quarter was 42%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $21.5 million, compared to $18.3 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was mainly due to higher amortization expense related to purchased intangible assets of $3.0 million within the finished dosage form segment.

Research and development expenses were $3.6 million, compared to $4.3 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease is primarily due to lower expenses related to the development of generic drug products.

Acquisition and Integration expenses of $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 represent costs associated with the acquisitions of Halo and Avista. The acquisition of Avista closed on January 2, 2019.

Operating profit under ASC 606 was $19.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. Under ASC 605, Operating profit was $58.8 million compared to $56.3 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily the result of higher gross profit partially offset by higher operating expenses as described above. Adjusted EBITDA was $70.7 million compared to $65.1 million in the same quarter last year (see table at the end of this press release).

Income tax expense under ASC 606 was $17.5 million resulting in an effective tax rate of 93% compared to $15.6 million and an effective tax rate of 28% in the same quarter last year. Income tax expense during the quarter reflects $11.4 million of expense primarily for a state valuation allowance due to New Jersey tax reform enacted during the fourth quarter of 2018. The fourth quarter of 2018 also includes the immediate recognition of certain effects of share-based compensation, acquisition and integration expenses, amortization of purchased intangibles, unrealized gain on investment in equity securities and the finalization of the U.S. tax reform toll charge on undistributed foreign earnings. Under ASC 605 and excluding these items, the effective tax rate would have been approximately 22% during the quarter.

Income from continuing operations under ASC 606 was $1.3 million. Under ASC 605, Income from continuing operations was $32.3 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, compared to $40.2 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year.

Adjusted Income from continuing operations, calculated under ASC 605, to be comparable to the prior year results, and including other adjustments described in the table at the end of this press release, was $48.7 million or $1.44 per share, compared to $42.3 million or $1.26 per share in the same quarter last year.

Capital expenditures were $19.1 million and depreciation and amortization was $13.7 million compared to $13.9 million and $8.8 million, respectively, in the same quarter last year.

Net debt was $204.1 million at the end of the quarter, a decrease of $23.7 million during the quarter primarily driven by cash flows from operations.

As a result of the Halo acquisition in September 2018, and to be in alignment with how the business is managed, the Company’s operating segments were aggregated to form two reportable segments, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (“APIs”) and Finished Dosage Form (“FDF”). The API segment consists of four operating segments which manufactures APIs. The FDF segment consists of one operating segment which manufactures and develops finished dosage form products.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results – Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (“API”) segmentNet revenue was $110.9 million under ASC 606. Under ASC 605, net revenue was $189.1 million compared to $182.3 in the same quarter last year, a 3.7% increase. Results under ASC 605 include a 2% unfavorable impact of foreign exchange compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. Higher sales of controlled substances was the primary driver of the increase under ASC 605 compared to the same quarter last year.

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $42.6 million. Under ASC 605, Gross profit would have been $81.8 million compared to $78.9 million in the same quarter last year. Gross margins decreased to 38% from 43% in the same quarter last year. Excluding the impact of the new revenue recognition standard, gross margins would have been 43%.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $10.2 million in the fourth quarter 2018, compared to $14.0 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease was mainly due to lower personnel related costs and consulting expenses.

Operating profit was $29.3 million under ASC 606 in the fourth quarter 2018. Under ASC 605, operating profit was $68.6 million compared to $61.9 in the fourth quarter 2017. The increase in operating profit under ASC 605 was due to higher gross profit and lower operating expenses.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results – Finished Dosage Form (“FDF”) segmentResults on an ASC 605 basis were not materially different than the reported results under ASC 606.

FDF Net revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $23.4 million under ASC 606.

Gross profit was $5.7 million and gross margin was 24% under ASC 606 in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 including amortization of purchased intangibles of $3.0 million.

Acquisition and Integration expenses of $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 represent costs associated with the acquisitions of Halo and Avista.

Operating loss under ASC 606 was $0.7 million. Operating loss includes $1.1 million in integration costs and approximately $3.3 million of increased depreciation and amortization expense resulting from the application of purchase accounting.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results – Corporate Headquarters Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $4.3 million in the same quarter last year. The increase is primarily related to higher personnel related expenses.

Acquisition and Integration expenses of $2.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 represent costs associated with the acquisitions of Halo and Avista.

Operating loss in the fourth quarter 2018 was $8.8 million compared to $5.6 million in the same quarter last year.

Financial Expectations – Continuing OperationsThe following table shows the Company’s current expectations for its full year 2019 financial performance. The expectations in the table below reflect expected results from the business including the recent acquisitions of Halo and Avista. All expectations for 2019, including growth relative to 2018, are based on actual and expected ASC 606 results for both years.

Expectations ------------------- Net revenue growth 21% to 25% Adjusted EBITDA $150 - $160 million Adjusted income from continuing operations per share $1.87 - $2.09 Free cash flow $60 - $70 million Capital expenditures $60 - $70 million Depreciation $46 - $50 million Adjusted effective tax rate 25% - 27%

Consistent with the Company’s usual guidance practices, these financial expectations are for continuing operations and exclude the impact of any potential future acquisitions and related transaction and integration expenses, including those related to the recent acquisitions of Halo Pharma and Avista Pharma Solutions, divestitures, restructuring activities, certain tax items discussed below, and the impact of foreign currency on Net revenue.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from continuing operations per share for 2019 will be computed on a basis consistent with the reconciliation of the current quarter financial results in the tables at the end of this press release, except that all 2019 results will be on an ASC 606 basis. Free cash flow is defined as the change in debt, net of cash during the year. Adjusted effective tax rate excludes the immediate recognition of certain benefits of share-based compensation and certain other items adjusted for in the non-GAAP reconciliation tables at the end of this release.

The tax rate will be sensitive to the Company’s geographic mix of income, changes in the tax laws or rates within the countries in which the Company operates and the effects of certain share-based payments. Reconciliations of these measures to measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are not available without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of certain information needed to calculate certain reconciling items, including interest expense and income tax expense.

We expect M&A and related integration expenses for 2019 to be between $9 and $11 million. These amounts are excluded from our consolidated Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income from continuing operations per share guidance included above. These expenses consist of approximately $4.5 million of transaction expenses paid in conjunction with our acquisition of Avista in early January and the remainder will consist of integration expenses incurred across most functional areas throughout 2019. This estimate also includes certain immediate and one-time expenses related to IT systems, but does not include costs to upgrade the two newly acquired businesses to SAP, our ERP software, which will likely happen over the course of 2019 and 2020.

Expectations above include preliminary estimates for Depreciation expense associated with purchase accounting for the Avista acquisition. We expect to finalize the purchase accounting for Avista during the first half of 2019. As a result, expected Depreciation expense and its impact on expected Adjusted Income from continuing operations per share in the table below will likely change when purchase accounting is finalized.

Refer to the tables at the end of this press release which includes items typically adjusted to arrive at the Company’s non-GAAP results.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresEBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted effective tax rate and Adjusted Income from continuing operations are non-GAAP financial measures (“non-GAAP financial measures”). Other companies may have different definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result they may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted effective tax rate and Adjusted Income from continuing operations are calculated in a manner consistent with that shown in the table at the end of this press release.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted effective tax rate and Adjusted Income from continuing operations should not be considered alternatives to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as Operating profit or Net income, and should not be considered a measure of Cambrex’s liquidity.

Cambrex uses these non-GAAP financial measures, among several other metrics, to assess and analyze its operational results and trends. Cambrex also believes these measures are useful to investors because they are common operating performance metrics as well as metrics routinely used to assess potential enterprise value. Cambrex has provided a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts at the end of this press release.
