Financial Highlights:

  • 4Q 2016 revenue increased 10% to $510M compared to 4Q 2015
  • Net income from continuing operations was $44M
    • Net Income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.30
  • 4Q 2016 Adjusted EBITDA was $124M or 24% of revenue

DURHAM, N.C.--()--Patheon N.V. (NYSE:PTHN), a leading global provider of pharmaceutical development and manufacturing services, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended October 31, 2016.

Fourth quarter 2016 revenue was $510 million, an increase of 10% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in the company’s financial performance was driven by year-over-year growth in all three business segments despite temporary closings at three sites due to weather and power outages.

“The overall business performed well with continued strong momentum in the fourth quarter and for the year overall, securing record contract wins in 2016. We are increasingly engaging with customers at a more strategic level to provide one of the industry’s broadest, scalable solutions from development through commercial manufacturing to help them simplify and optimize supply chain needs,” said Patheon CEO Jim Mullen.

Fourth quarter 2016 net income from continuing operations was $44 million. Fourth quarter 2016 net income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.30.

Fourth quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA was $124 million, a 17% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Fourth quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue was 24%, up 130 basis points compared to the same period last year.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Segment Highlights

               

 

  Revenue   Y-o-Y Growth   Adj. EBITDA   Y-o-Y Growth

PDS   $60M   18%   $23M   36%
DSS   $152M   10%   $49M   9%
     
  • Despite the temporary closures at the two sites, the DPS segment benefited from continued volume growth and demand across sterile and oral solid dose forms.
  • The double-digit growth for PDS was primarily driven by strong demand for sterile and low-solubility services and improved productivity across the network.
  • The Drug Substance segment continued to see strong demand for biologics services, which now represents approximately 50% of the segment’s total revenues.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations before repositioning expenses (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), interest expense, foreign exchange losses reclassified from other comprehensive income (loss), refinancing expenses, acquisition and integration costs (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), gains and losses on sale of capital assets, Biologics earnout income and expense, income taxes, impairment charges, remediation costs, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs related to our operational initiatives, purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related litigation expenses and other income and expenses.

We define Adjusted net income as Adjusted EBITDA minus depreciation expense (excluding amortization from intangibles acquired in acquisitions), interest expense (excluding amortization of the deferred financing costs), and tax expense. In addition, we exclude discrete tax items and apply an estimated tax effect on adjustments within the calculation. The estimated tax effect is calculated using statutory tax rates on each expense item, except in the case where a jurisdiction is under a full valuation allowance at the time of the expense, in which we apply a tax rate of 0%.

We define Adjusted EPS as Adjusted net income divided by the average number of shares outstanding on a diluted basis for the related period.

Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA as one of several metrics to measure the Company’s operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also a component of the performance objectives used to determine the short and long-term incentive portions of executive compensation. We present Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS because we believe they are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of our operations and provide greater transparency into our results. We believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as a supplement to the comparable U.S. GAAP measures in evaluating the performance of our operations provides greater transparency to the information used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making. These non-GAAP financial measures do not have standard meanings, so they may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP financial measures of performance. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure is included with the financial statements in this press release.

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures because it could not do so without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of the information needed to calculate reconciling items and the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the adjusting items that would be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures in future periods. When planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, the Company does so primarily on a non-GAAP basis without preparing a GAAP analysis as that would require estimates for various cash and non-cash reconciling items that would be difficult to predict with reasonable accuracy. For example, equity compensation expense would be difficult to estimate because it depends on the Company’s future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of the Company’s common stock, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change. It is equally difficult to anticipate the need for or magnitude of a presently unforeseen one-time restructuring expense or the values of end-of-period foreign currency exchange rates. As a result, the Company does not believe that a GAAP reconciliation to forward-looking on-GAAP financial measures would provide meaningful supplemental information about the Company’s outlook.
