DALLAS, Texas, Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) (“SWK” or the “Company”), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced its second quarter 2017 financial results.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights:

  • Reported total revenues of approximately $6.1 million for the quarter, compared to $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2016.
  • Reported adjusted net income of approximately $5.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the quarter, as compared to ($0.6) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016.
  • Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables, marketable securities and investment in unconsolidated subsidiaries less non-controlling interests) were approximately $143.4 million as of June 30, 2017, compared to $132.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

“We continue to execute on our business plan of deploying our balance sheet capital into attractive, risk-adjusted financings,” stated Winston Black, Chief Executive Officer of SWK. “Taking into account for capital deployed after June 30, 2017, our income producing assets have increased more than 20% year-to-date. While we are cognizant of the increasingly competitive nature of the overall lending market, we continue to find niche opportunities to deploy capital at attractive yields. Given our year-to-date capital deployment, we are evaluating means of raising additional, non-dilutive balance sheet 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 Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“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.

Portfolio Overview

As of June 30, 2017, the Company's total income producing assets were approximately $143.4 million as compared to $132.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

After quarter’s close, the Company deployed $17.2 million into two new term loan financings. One of the Company’s existing royalty transactions achieved a revenue-based milestone, triggering a $3.75 million payment of the contingent purchase amount. SWK also supported existing portfolio companies working capital needs through aggregate $2.8 million add-on term loan funding.

As of August 10, 2017, the Company and its partners have executed transactions with 26 different parties under its specialty finance strategy, funding $371 million in various financial products across the life science sector. At the end of the second quarter, the weighted average projected effective yield of the finance receivables portfolio was 14.1%. The projected effective yield is the rate at which income is expected to be recognized pursuant to the Company’s revenue recognition policies, if all payments are received pursuant to the terms of the finance receivables.

Results of Operations

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $6.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, driven primarily by $5.7 million in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables. 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 our finance receivables, and $2.1 million in income related to our investment in an unconsolidated partnership. The primary reason for the decrease in revenue is related to our investment in an unconsolidated entity, which on February 23, 2017 sold its U.S. marketing rights to its underlying intellectual property. The slight decrease in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables was primarily due to the payoff of two loans during the three months ended June 30, 2016, which was offset by interest and fees earned on subsequent new financings.

Provision for Credit losses and Impairment Expense

SWK did not recognize any provision for credit losses or security impairment expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2017. SWK recognized security impairment expense during the three months ended June 30, 2016 on debt and equity securities of $0.7 million and $0.6 million, respectively, to reflect the securities at their fair market values as of June 30, 2016. Also, during the three months ended June 30, 2016, SWK recognized an allowance for credit loss on a royalty purchase and impairment expense for a loan write off of $1.7 million and $5.3 million, respectively.

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 increased to $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016, which was due to an increase in compensation related expenses for additional employees hired in 2017.

Other Income (Expense)

Other income (expense), net for the three months ended June 30, 2017 reflected a net fair market value loss of $0.1 million on our warrant derivatives. Other expense for the three months ended June 30, 2016, reflected a net fair market value gain of $0.5 million on our warrant derivatives.

Income Tax Expense

SWK recognized $1.4 million of deferred income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017. No income tax expense was recognized for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2017, SWK had $36.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $32.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2016. The primary driver of the net increase in our cash balance was the net proceeds of $8.6 million received related to our investment in an unconsolidated entity and cash generated by our operations, partially offset by our investments in our partner companies.

As of June 30, 2017, we had $8.6 million of unfunded commitments outstanding. After quarter’s end, $3.8 million of this total was funded, $0.5 million expired, while an additional $5.0 million of unfunded commitments was added. Pro forma for these transactions, unfunded commitments totaled $9.3 million.

Adjusted Net Income

Net income in accordance with GAAP for the three month period ending June 30, 2017 was $3.6 million, and net income attributable to SWK Stockholders in accordance with GAAP for the three month period ending June 30, 2017, was $3.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. The table below eliminates provisions for income taxes, 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 June 30, 2017 and ended June 30, 2016:

Non-GAAP adjusted diluted income (loss) per share $ 0.38 $ (0.04) $ 1.10 $ 0.19

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.
