DALLAS, Aug. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) (“SWK” or the “Company”), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced its second quarter 2016 financial results.

Winston Black, Chief Executive Officer of SWK, stated, “We have made good progress this quarter executing on our pipeline, closing four transactions in the past two months. While we are disappointed with the performance of the SynCardia position, exiting it illustrates our efforts to resolve our underperforming assets in order to focus management time on building and executing our pipeline. With four total position exits year-to-date we are well capitalized with $77 million of cash on the balance sheet.”

SWK also has warrant positions in five private companies; warrants in private companies are typically carried at zero unless the warrants are realized.

Results of Operations

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $8.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016, driven primarily by $6.5 million in interest and fees earned on its finance receivables, and $2.1 million in income related to its investment in an unconsolidated partnership. 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 $1.3 million in income related to its investment in an unconsolidated partnership. The increase in revenue is primarily driven by two loan pay-offs, which were partially responsible for an increase in interest and fees of $2.4 million as well as an increase of $0.8 million in income related to SWK’s investment in an unconsolidated partnership when compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Provision for Loan Credit Losses and Impairment Expense

SWK recognized debt and equity security impairment expense during the three months ended June 30, 2016 of $1.3 million. Also during the three months ended June 30, 2016, SWK recorded an impairment expense for a loan write-off of $5.3 million. No security impairment expense was recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2015.

SWK recognized an allowance for credit loss on a royalty purchase of $1.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2016. SWK recognized impairment expense on the warrants and fair value of a finance receivable of $0.7 million and $1.9 million, respectively, during the three months ended June 30, 2015.

During the three-month period ended June 30, 2016 provisions for loan credit losses and impairments were taken on the following positions:

  • $5.3 million impairment on SynCardia. On June 24, 2016, SWK sold 100% of its debt and equity interests to an affiliate of Versa Capital Management for upfront cash consideration of $7.2 million plus additional certain future contingent payments. SWK has no additional funding commitments to SynCardia.
  • $1.7 million allowance for credit loss for Besivance royalty due to lower expected future sales
  • $0.7 million debt security impairment expense for women’s health secured royalty financing due to lower expected future sales
  • $0.6 million equity security impairment for the continued stock price decline of Cancer Genetics public equity

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 $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 from $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, due to decreased salary, bonus and stock-based compensation expenses, and interest expense. This decrease was offset by increases in professional fees.

Interest Expense

SWK recognized no interest expense during the three months ended June 30, 2016 and three months ended June 30, 2015.

Other Income (Expense), Net

Other expense for the three months ended June 30, 2016, reflected a net fair market value gain of $0.5 million on warrant derivatives compared to a $1.6 million fair market value loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Provision for Income Taxes and Deferred Tax Assets

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 June 30, 2016, SWK 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. The Company also had federal research credit carryforwards of $2.7 million. The federal credits will expire by 2029.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2016, SWK had $76.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $47.3 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2015.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $5.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, which primarily consisted of net income of $4.0 million and noncash adjustments of $2.5 million. The noncash adjustments were primarily attributable to $8.6 million in provision for credit losses and impairment expense and $0.2 million in stock compensation expense, offset by $3.8 million from equity income on an investment in an unconsolidated entity and $2.0 million in loan discount amortization and fee accretion.

The Company’s investing activities provided positive cash flow of $25.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, driven by net receipts of $20.4 million from finance receivables, $4.3 million in cash distributions received from an investment in an unconsolidated entity, and $1.0 million in cash received for settlement of warrants.

The Company’s financing activities had negative cash flow of $2.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, consisting of the $2.2 million in cash distributions to non-controlling interests.

Adjusted Net Income

Net loss in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”) for the three-month period ending June 30, 2016, was $1.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the three-month period ending June 30, 2016, was $0.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted share

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 June 30, 2016 and ended June 30, 2015. Adjusted net income 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.

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 (loss) and its components and Non-GAAP adjusted basic and diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for GAAP net income (loss) 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 (loss) and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income (loss) and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies.
