Lannett Announces Fiscal 2021 First-quarter Financial Results; Affirms Guidance

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lannett Company, Inc. (NYSE: LCI) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2021 first quarter ended September 30, 2020

"We view our fiscal 2021 first quarter net sales of $126 million as a solid achievement, given our current competitive landscape and overall decline of total prescriptions related to the ongoing pandemic," said Tim Crew, chief executive officer of Lannett. "During the quarter, we fully implemented our cost reduction plan that we estimate will lower expenses by approximately $15 million, annually, and launched four new products, including Levothyroxine Sodium Tablets, a meaningful product for us. More recently, we began marketing two additional products, including the exclusive authorized generic of Tirosint® (Levothyroxine Sodium Capsules), a medication that complements and expands our thyroid deficiency portfolio of products. Our plans include launching approximately seven more products over the balance of the current fiscal year. Based on the aforementioned, we are affirming our previous guidance for the fiscal 2021 full year.

"At the end of this month, we intend to use a portion of our existing cash to pay down, in full, our Term A Loans. This milestone will lower our annual interest expense and principal payments by approximately $30 million, thus improving our financial flexibility. Moreover, our remaining debt is free of financial covenants and the nearest maturity is in November of 2022, two years away.

"We continue to advance a number of drug candidates in our portfolio that we believe have durable value and the potential to be catalysts for significant growth. Our respiratory and biosimilar product candidates with large addressable markets remain on track, and we expect to expand such durable portfolio assets over the course of this fiscal year."

For the fiscal 2021 first quarter on a GAAP basis, net sales were $126.5 million compared with $127.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Gross profit was $25.7 million, or 20% of net sales, compared with $42.7 million, or 33% of net sales. The company recorded restructuring expenses of $4.0 million compared with $1.4 million in the prior-year first quarter. Net loss was $6.5 million, or $0.17 per share, compared with $12.2 million, or $0.32 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

For the fiscal 2021 first quarter reported on a Non-GAAP basis, net sales were $126.5 million compared with $127.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted gross profit was $34.4 million, or 27% of net sales, compared with $52.6 million, or 41% of net sales, for the prior-year first quarter. Adjusted interest expense decreased to $11.2 million compared with $15.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted net income was $2.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with $8.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the fiscal 2020 first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal 2021 first quarter was $33.2 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains references to Non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which are financial measures that are not prepared in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). Management uses these measures internally for evaluating its operating performance. The Company's management believes that the presentation of Non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information regarding operational performance, because it enhances an investor's overall understanding of the financial results for the Company's core business. Additionally, it provides a basis for the comparison of the financial results for the Company's core business between current, past and future periods. The company also believes that including Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the company's existing Credit Agreement, is appropriate to provide additional information to investors to demonstrate the company's ability to comply with financial debt covenants. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. 

Detailed reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included with this release.

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude, among others, the effects of (1) amortization of purchased intangibles and other purchase accounting entries, (2) restructuring expenses, (3) non-cash interest expense, as well as (4) certain other items considered unusual or non-recurring in nature.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes the same adjustments discussed above, as well as additional adjustments permitted under the company's existing Credit Agreement.
