Highlights

  • Sales increased 12% (11% excluding the impact of foreign currency) to $119.1 million compared to $106.4 million in the same quarter last year.
  • GAAP Diluted EPS from continuing operations was $0.63 compared to $0.60 in the same quarter last year and Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.68 compared to $0.63 in the same quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 6% to $36.7 million compared to $34.6 million in the same quarter last year (see table at the end of this release).
  • Net cash was $52.5 million at the end of the second quarter, a decrease of $33.1 million during the quarter.
  • The Company closed on a new five-year $500 million Senior Revolving Credit Facility that provides significant flexibility to execute its growth strategy.
  • The Company increased its financial guidance for full year sales and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company expects full year 2016 sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency, to increase between 10% and 13% compared to 2015. The Company expects Adjusted EBITDA to be between $144 and $149 million, a 12% to 16% increase compared to 2015 (see Financial Expectations section below).

“We are very pleased with our second quarter and year to date results. Sales growth and profit margins year to date are in line with our outlook coming into the year and we expect continued strong growth in the second half of 2016,” commented Steven M. Klosk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cambrex. “We saw growth across all product categories and we were also awarded two new late stage projects, demonstrating that we continue to be favorably positioned to take advantage of positive market dynamics. Our first half results, coupled with our visibility into the rest of the year, provide the basis for our increased financial guidance.

“Earlier this month we announced the completion and validation of our $50 million state-of-the-art production and warehousing expansion at our Charles City, Iowa facility. As overall industry trends remain favorable, we will continue to invest aggressively to increase our small and large scale capabilities.”

Basis of Reporting
The Company has provided a reconciliation of GAAP amounts to adjusted (i.e. Non-GAAP) amounts at the end of this press release. Cambrex management believes that the adjusted amounts provide useful information to investors due to the magnitude and nature of certain expenses recorded in the GAAP amounts.

Second Quarter 2016 Operating Results – Continuing Operations
Sales were $119.1 million, compared to $106.4 million in the same period last year, representing a 12% increase. Foreign exchange favorably impacted reported sales growth by 1%. The sales increase primarily reflects higher volumes in all of our product categories, partially offset by lower pricing.

Gross margins decreased to 41% from 43% compared to the same quarter last year. The decrease was primarily due to lower pricing and higher inventory reserves, including higher reprocessing costs, partially offset by favorable product mix. Foreign currency had a negligible impact on gross margins in the second quarter of 2016.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $13.6 million, compared to $14.1 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease was mainly due to lower bonus, recruiting and relocation expenses, partially offset by increased personnel costs and sales and marketing expenses.

Research and development expenses were $4.1 million, compared to $2.7 million in the same quarter last year. The increase is primarily related to increased personnel costs and costs to develop new generic drug products.

Operating profit increased to $30.8 million from $29.2 million in the same quarter last year. The increase in operating profit was primarily the result of higher gross profit, partially offset by higher research and development and sales and marketing expenses. Adjusted EBITDA was $36.7 million compared to $34.6 million in the same quarter last year.

Income tax expense was $9.8 million resulting in an effective tax rate of 32% compared to expense of $9.5 million and an effective tax rate of 33% in the same quarter last year.

Income from continuing operations was $20.8 million or $0.63 per share compared to $19.5 million or $0.60 per share in the same quarter last year. Adjusted income from continuing operations was $22.3 million or $0.68 per share, compared to $20.5 million or $0.63 per share in the same quarter last year (see table at the end of this release).

Capital expenditures and depreciation were $9.9 million and $5.5 million, respectively, compared to $14.5 million and $5.2 million, respectively, in the same quarter last year.

The decrease in net cash of $33.1 million during the quarter was primarily due to the timing of accounts receivable collections, increased inventory production and capital spending.

Financial Expectations – Continuing Operations
The following table shows the Company’s current expectations for its full year 2016 financial performance versus its expectations from the previous quarter:

Current
Expectations
Previous
Expectations
Gross sales increase 10% - 13% 8% - 12%
Adjusted EBITDA $144 - $149 million $142 - $148 million

Capital expenditures $70 - $75 million $70 - $75 million
Depreciation $25 - $27 million $26 - $28 million

Consistent with prior guidance for the full year 2016, these financial expectations are for continuing operations and exclude the impact of any potential acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring activities, outcomes of tax disputes and any charges related to any future sale of the Company’s Zenara business located in Hyderabad, India. Sales expectations exclude the impact of foreign exchange. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income from continuing operations per share for 2016 will be computed on a basis consistent with the reconciliation of the second quarter 2016 financial results in the tables at the end of this release. Free cash flow is defined as the change in debt, net of cash during the year. The tax rate will be sensitive to the Company’s geographic mix of income.

The financial information contained in this press release is unaudited, subject to revision and should not be considered final until the Company’s second quarter 2016 Form 10-Q is filed with the SEC.

Forward Looking Statements

This document contains “forward-looking statements,” including statements or tables regarding expected performance, especially those set forth under the heading “Financial Expectations – Continuing Operations,” “Highlights” and those attributed to our President and Chief Executive Officer in this document. These and other forward looking statements may be identified by the fact that they use words such as “guidance,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “estimates,” “believes” or similar expressions. Any forward-looking statements contained herein are based on current plans and expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from current expectations. The factors described in Item 1A of Part I of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2015, captioned “Risk Factors,” or otherwise described in the Company’s filings with the SEC provide examples of such risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from the expectations the Company describes in its forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, pharmaceutical outsourcing trends, competitive pricing or product developments, market acceptance and adoption rate of its customers’ products, government legislation and regulations (including those pertaining to environmental issues), tax rate, interest rate, technology, manufacturing and legal issues, including the outcome of outstanding litigation, environmental matters, changes in foreign exchange rates, uncollectible receivables, the timing of orders or shipments and the Company’s ability to meet its production plan and customer delivery schedules, expected timing of completion of capacity expansions, loss on disposition of assets, the Company’s ability to dispose of Zenara assets held for sale, cancellations or delays in renewal of contracts, lack of suitable raw materials, the Company’s ability to receive regulatory approvals for its products, continued demand in the U.S. for late stage clinical products and the successful outcome of the Company’s investment in new products.

For further details and a discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties, investors are encouraged to review the Cambrex Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, including the Forward-Looking Statement sections therein, and other filings with the SEC. The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place significant reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this press release and to give careful consideration to the risks and uncertainties listed above and contained in the Company’s SEC filings. The forward-looking statements in this press release speak only as of the date of this document, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any of these statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines EBITDA as operating profit plus depreciation and amortization expense and Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of any potential acquisitions, restructuring activities and charges related to any future sale or closure of the Company’s Zenara business located in Hyderabad, India. Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations is calculated in a manner consistent with that shown in the table at the end of this release. Other companies may have different definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations. Therefore, these measures may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations should not be considered alternatives to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as net income or operating profit, and should not be considered a measure of Cambrex’s liquidity. Cambrex uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations among several other metrics to assess and analyze its operational results and trends. Cambrex also believes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations are useful to investors because they are common operating performance metrics as well as metrics routinely used to assess potential enterprise value. Cambrex has provided a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts at the end of this press release.
