DALLAS, March 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) ("SWK" or the "Company"), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced today its fourth quarter and full year 2013 financial results.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Increased total revenues by 491% to approximately $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $0.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Increased adjusted net income 648% to approximately $1.9 million, as compared to $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Received approximately $6.5 million in principal repayment and $0.6 million in loan exit fees with the realization of the Nautilus Neurosciences, Inc. term loan.
  • Funded approximately $16 million into two new transactions.

2013 Highlights:

  • Total revenues of approximately $6.4 million, an increase of 912% in fiscal year 2013 compared to approximately $0.6 million for 2012.
  • Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables, marketable securities and investment in unconsolidated subsidiaries less non-controlling interests) were approximately $37.2 million as of December 31, 2013, compared to $12.5 million as of December 31, 2012.
  • Valuation allowance of $9.8 million released against the Company's net deferred tax assets.

As we approach the second year anniversary of our efforts, we are very pleased with the significant strides we have made towards building a leading life science alternative capital finance platform," said Brett Pope, Chief Executive Officer of SWK.

Portfolio Overview

As of December 31, 2013, the Company's total income producing assets were approximately $37.2 million under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") as compared to $12.5 million for 2012.

(in thousands, except per share data) Year Ended December 31,
2013 2012
Finance receivables $ 29,286 $ 6,500
Available for sale securities 3,119 --
Investment in unconsolidated subsidiary 10,425 13,000
Less non-controlling interest (5,613) (7,000)
Total income producing assets $ 37,217 $ 12,500

SWK has funded an additional $12 million since December 31, 2013. Including the Nautilus Neurosciences, Inc. transaction, SWK has now executed nine transactions under its new strategy, deploying approximately $57.5 million across a variety of opportunities:

  • $11 million in three transactions where SWK purchased or financed royalties generated by the sales of life science products and related intellectual property;
  • $40.5 million in five transactions where SWK receives interest and other income by advancing capital in the form of secured debt backed by royalties paid by companies in the life science sector; and
  • $6 million in one transaction where SWK acquired an indirect interest in the U.S. marketing authorization rights to a pharmaceutical product where SWK ultimately receives cash flow distributions from the product.

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $6.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, driven primarily by $3.7 million in interest and fees and $2.8 million in income related to our investment in unconsolidated partnership. SWK generated revenues of $0.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2012.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation, stock-based compensation and related costs for management, staff, Board of Directors, legal and audit expenses, and corporate governance. General and administrative expenses decreased by 22% to $1.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 from $2.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, due to a decrease in professional fees and stock-based compensation expenses.

Interest and Other Income (Expense), net

Interest and other income (expense), net was an expense of $0.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, which consisted of $0.2 million fair market value adjustments relating to the Tribute warrant and to our warrant liability, and interest expense of $0.1 million, offset almost entirely by interest income. During the year ended December 31, 2012, interest and other income (expense), net was income of $0.2 million which consisted solely of interest income. The decrease in interest income related to lower interest rates and lower cash balances in the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012.

Income Tax Benefit

SWK has incurred net operating losses on a consolidated basis for all years from inception through 2012. Accordingly, the Company has historically recorded a valuation for the full amount of gross deferred tax assets, as the future realization of the tax benefit was not "currently more likely than not." As of December 31, 2013, SWK concluded that it is more likely than not that it will be able to realize an approximately $9.8 million benefit of the U.S. federal and state deferred tax assets in the future. As a result, SWK has released $9.8 million of the valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets.

As of December 31, 2013, SWK's valuation allowance against deferred tax assets decreased by approximately $21 million due to the write-off of expired deferred tax assets and partial release of the valuation allowance.

As of December 31, 2013, SWK had operating loss carryforwards for federal income tax purposes of approximately $433 million. The federal net operating loss carry forwards if not offset against future income, will expire by 2032, with the majority expiring by 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2013, SWK had $7.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $24.6 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2012. As of December 31, 2013, SWK had working capital of $8.7 million, compared to working capital of $26.0 million as of December 31, 2012. The reduction in the Company's working capital is primarily attributable to the net purchase of $22.4 million in finance receivables.

As of December 31, 2013 SWK had $5.0 million outstanding and $10.0 million of available borrowings under our credit facility. SWK estimates its liquidity and capital resources are adequate to fund its operating activities for the twelve months from the balance sheet date. On February 13, 2014, SWK filed a Form S-1 registration statement in conjunction with a future rights offering in which the Company intends to raise up to $12.5 million of gross proceeds. If SWK successfully completes the rights offering, an additional $15.0 million of borrowing capacity will be made available to the Company under its credit facility.

Net Income and Adjusted Net Income for 2013 and the Fourth Quarter of 2013

Net income for the annual and quarterly periods ending December 31, 2013 was $12.9 million, or $0.31 per share, and $11.8 million, or $0.28 per share, respectively. The table below eliminates the benefit to net income from the release of the net deferred tax assets. The following tables provide a reconciliation of our reported (GAAP) statements of operations to our adjusted statements of operations (Non-GAAP) for the three months and full year ended December 31, 2013:

Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components and Non-GAAP Adjusted basic and diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and basic and diluted EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, we stress that these are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies. These Non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses performance.
