Endo Announces Certain Preliminary Financial Results for Third-Quarter 2017 and Affirms Selected 2017 Financial Guidance

Company Also Comments on Status of VASOSTRICT® (vasopressin injection, USP)

DUBLIN, Oct. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) today announced certain preliminary results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, including expected: (i) revenues of approximately $785 million; (ii) reported (GAAP) net loss attributable to Endo of approximately $100 million; (iii) adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) from continuing operations of approximately $370 million; (iv) reported (GAAP) loss per share from continuing operations of approximately $0.45; and (v) adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of approximately $0.85.

Endo also affirmed that for the twelve months ending December 31, 2017, the Company expects revenues to be between $3.38 billion and $3.53 billion. The Company further expects adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations to be at the upper end of the 2017 financial guidance ranges provided in August of $1.48 billion to $1.56 billion and $3.35 to $3.65, respectively. The Company will provide further details on its complete 2017 financial guidance and assumptions when it reports third-quarter 2017 earnings on November 9, 2017.

In addition, Endo announced the Company's intention to aggressively defend and protect its VASOSTRICT® (vasopressin injection, USP) product franchise and intellectual property, including seeking to prevent the unapproved, non-sterile-to-sterile bulk compounding of vasopressin through a previously announced lawsuit filed by certain of its subsidiaries against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on October 26, 2017. The Company is unaware of any unapproved, non-sterile-to-sterile compounding facilities currently selling or distributing a vasopressin injection product. VASOSTRICT® remains the only FDA-approved vasopressin injection product indicated to increase blood pressure in adults with vasodilatory shock (e.g., post-cardiotomy or sepsis) who remain hypotensive despite fluids and catecholamines.

During the third-quarter 2017, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) issued to Endo's Par Pharmaceutical operating company three new patents relating to VASOSTRICT® (vasopressin injection, USP) 20 units/mL. The PTO issued U.S. Patent Nos. 9,744,209; 9,744,239; and 9,750,785, all of which have expiration dates of January 30, 2035. All three patents have been listed in the FDA Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations, commonly known as the Orange Book. Par now holds five VASOSTRICT® patents listed in the Orange Book, including U.S. Patent Nos. 9,375,478 and 9,687,526, which also have expiration dates of January 30, 2035.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

While Endo expects that its final financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2017, following the completion of its financial closing procedures, will generally be consistent with the amounts provided in this press release, Endo's actual results may differ materially from these estimates as a result of the completion of its financial closing procedures, as well as final adjustments and other developments that may arise between now and the time that its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2017 are finalized, including adjustments that could be made for income taxes, asset impairments, contingent consideration adjustments, legal settlements, adjustments to inventory and other charges.

(3) To exclude preliminary litigation-related settlement charges, reimbursements and certain settlements related to intellectual property suits previously filed by our subsidiaries.

(4) To exclude preliminary pre-tax, non-cash, intangible asset and property, plant and equipment impairment charges. During the third quarter of 2017, we recorded total pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of approximately $95 million, approximately $17 million of which relates to property, plant and equipment charges related to our previously announced restructuring initiatives and held-for-sale accounting for Somar. The remaining preliminary charges during the third quarter largely relate to market conditions impacting the recoverability of certain indefinite and finite-lived intangible assets in our U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals and U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals segments.

(5) To exclude preliminary acquisition and integration-related costs related to various past acquisitions.

(6) To exclude the preliminary impact of changes in the fair value of contingent consideration resulting from changes in market conditions impacting the commercial potential of the underlying products.

(7) To exclude preliminary Other income, net expected to be included in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

(8) To exclude the preliminary results of the businesses reported as discontinued operations, net of tax in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

(9) To exclude preliminary amortization expense for commercial intangible assets.

(10) Adjusted income taxes are calculated by tax effecting adjusted pre-tax income and permanent book-tax differences at the applicable effective tax rate that will be determined by reference to statutory tax rates in the relevant jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Adjusted income taxes include current and deferred income tax expense commensurate with the non-GAAP measure of profitability.

As previously disclosed, during the second quarter of 2016, Endo recorded a discrete GAAP tax benefit of $636 million arising from outside basis differences generated as part of a legal entity restructuring. This benefit and the associated component of the 2016 U.S. federal return to provision adjustment recorded in the third quarter of 2017 were excluded from our adjusted effective tax rate in accordance with the Company's non-GAAP accounting policy.


Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company utilizes certain financial measures that are not prescribed by or prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP). These Non-GAAP financial measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted earnings per share amounts. 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 EBITDA and Non-GAAP adjusted net income from continuing operations and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income from continuing operations and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies. These Non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses performance. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. However, the Company does not provide reconciliations of projected non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures, nor does it provide comparable GAAP financial measures for such non-GAAP financial measures. The Company is unable to provide such reconciliations without unreasonable efforts due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for income taxes, asset impairments, contingent consideration adjustments, legal settlements, loss on extinguishment of debt, adjustments to inventory and other charges reflected in the reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which could be significant. See Endo's Current Report on Form 8-K furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission for an explanation of Endo's non-GAAP financial measures.
