DALLAS, May 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) (“SWK” or the “Company”), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced its first quarter 2016 financial results.

First Quarter 2016 Highlights:

  • Reported total revenues of approximately $5.2 million for the quarter, compared to $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2015.
  • Reported adjusted net income of approximately $3.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the quarter, as compared to $3.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015.
  • Reported net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $2.3 million for the quarter, or $0.18 per diluted share, as compared to $3.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015.
  • Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables, marketable securities and investment in unconsolidated subsidiaries less non-controlling interests) were approximately $98.1 million as of March 31, 2016, compared to $108.3 million as of December 31, 2015.

Winston Black, Chief Executive Officer of SWK, stated, “With the Tribute payoff, we are well capitalized with over $61 million of cash. We believe that the recent disruption in the capital markets in general and pharma/healthcare specifically will produce an even more attractive environment for us. Our pipeline continues to be robust, and we are diligently working through new opportunities in which to deploy our capital.”

Note:

  • All references to growth rate percentages and shares compare the results of the period to those of the prior year comparable period.
  • The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. 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. 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. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance.
  • 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 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.

Results of Operations

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $5.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, driven primarily by $3.6 million in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables and marketable securities, and $1.7 million in income related to our investment in an unconsolidated partnership. SWK generated revenues of $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, driven primarily by $4.2 million in interest and fees earned on finance receivables and marketable securities, and $1.6 million in income related to our investment in an unconsolidated partnership. The decrease in revenue is primarily driven by a combination of loans placed on non-accrual status coupled with loan pay offs, partially offset by an increase in the portfolio, which consisted of 14 investments in 2015 compared to 18 investments in 2016.

Security Impairment Expense

SWK recognized security impairment expense during the three months ended March 31, 2016 on equity securities of $0.3 million, to reflect the security at its fair market value as of March 31, 2016. There was no security impairment expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

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 to $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, due to decreased salary, bonus and stock-based compensation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by increases in professional fees.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. All interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was from debt issuance cost amortization.

Other (Expense) Income

Other expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016, reflected a net fair market value loss of $30,000 on our warrant derivatives compared to a $0.4 million net fair market value gain for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

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.” SWK believes that it is more likely than not that the Company will be able to realize approximately $16.8 million benefit of the U.S. federal and state deferred tax assets in the future. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had NOLs for federal income tax purposes of $405.0 million. The federal net operating loss carryforwards if not offset against future income, will expire by 2032, with the majority expiring by 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2016, SWK had $61.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $47.3 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2015. The increase in cash is driven essentially by investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Adjusted Net Income

Net income in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”) for the three month period ending March 31, 2016, was $3.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share. The table below eliminates provisions for warrant-related debt issuance costs, income taxes, and non-cash mark-to-market changes on warrant assets and SWK’s warrant liability. The following tables provide a reconciliation of SWK’s reported (GAAP) income before provision for income tax to SWK’s adjusted net income attributable to SWK Holdings Corporation stockholders (Non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and ended March 31, 2015:

In the presentation above, management has eliminated the following non-cash items: (i) warrant-related debt issuance costs as the expense is non-cash, (ii) fair-market value of warrants as mark to market changes are non-cash, and (iii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income.
