DALLAS, Aug. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) ("SWK" or the "Company"), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced its second quarter 2015 financial results.

"While we are disappointed in our second quarter results, we remain positive about the position of the overall portfolio. We will continue to look for situations where we can prudently allocate capital in order to compound book value for our shareholders."

Portfolio Overview

As of June 30, 2015, the Company's total income producing assets were approximately $132.6 million as compared to $102.4 million as of December 31, 2014.

(in thousands, except per share data) June 30, December 31,
2015 2014
Finance receivables $ 122,439 $ 93,347
Marketable investments 6,269 4,849
Investment in unconsolidated subsidiary 8,489 9,044
Less non-controlling interest (4,569) (4,867)
Total income producing assets $ 132,628 $ 102,373

SWK has now executed eighteen transactions under its strategy, deploying approximately $158.1 million across a variety of opportunities:

  • $16.3 million in four transactions where SWK purchased or financed royalties generated by the sales of life science products and related intellectual property;
  • $134.1 million in eleven 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;
  • $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; and
  • $1.7 million in one transaction where SWK purchased shares of preferred stock, which includes $0.2 million in lieu of cash payment.

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $5.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, driven primarily by $4.1 million in interest and fees earned on finance receivables and marketable securities and $1.4 million in income related to the Company's investment in an unconsolidated partnership. SWK generated revenues of $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, driven primarily by $2.2 million in interest and fees earned on finance receivables and marketable securities and $1.2 million in income related to the Company's investment in an unconsolidated partnership. The increase in SWK's portfolio investments was the primary driver for the significant increase in revenues.

Costs and Expenses

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 increased to $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 from $0.7 million for the comparable period in 2014, due to increased compensation expense and stock-based compensation expenses.

We incurred no interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Provision for Credit Losses

During the second quarter of 2015, we recorded a provision for credit losses of approximately $2.6 million related to an impairment on our Response Genetics term loan. This compares to no provision in the second quarter of 2014.

Other Income (Expense)

Other income (expense) for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $1.6 million of fair market value losses on the warrant derivatives. This included $0.8 million for the write-off of the Response Genetics warrants. Other income (expense) for the three months ended June 30, 2014, was $0.2 million of fair market value gains on the warrant derivatives.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2015, SWK had $28.4 million in cash and cash equivalents compared to $58.7 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2014.

Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for the Second Quarter Ending June 30 of 2015

Net income under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") for the three months ended March 31, 2015, was a loss of $0.4 million, or ($0.00) per share. The table below eliminates provisions for income taxes and non-cash mark-to-market changes on warrant assets and warrant liability. The following tables provide a reconciliation of our reported (GAAP) statements of operations to the Company's adjusted statements of operations (Non-GAAP) for the three months ended June 30, 2015, and 2014:

(in thousands, except per share data) Quarter Ended

Non-GAAP consolidated net income 1,060 2,398

Adjusted basic income per share $ 0.00 $ 0.04
Adjusted diluted income per share $ 0.00 $ 0.04

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP (sometimes referred to herein as "reported"). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing the Company's ongoing performance. In the presentation above, management has eliminated the following non-cash items: (i) fair-market value of warrants as mark to market changes are non-cash, and (ii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's non-GAAP financial information does not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting.
