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

Third Quarter 2017 Highlights:

  • Reported total revenues of approximately $5.5 million for the quarter, compared to $4.2 million for the third quarter of 2016.
  • Reported adjusted net income of approximately $4.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the quarter, as compared to $2.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016.
  • Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables, marketable securities and investment in unconsolidated subsidiaries; less non-controlling interests) were approximately $167.0 million as of September 30, 2017, compared to $132.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

“As previously announced, we closed two new transactions and advanced additional capital to current partners during the third quarter,” stated Winston Black, Chief Executive Officer of SWK. "Our pipeline of opportunities remains full, and we continue to make progress on securing 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 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 GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies.

Portfolio Overview

As of September 30, 2017, the Company's total income producing assets were approximately $167.0 million as compared to $132.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

During the quarter, 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. In addition to the revenue-based milestone payment, SWK also supported existing portfolio companies' working capital needs through aggregate $4.5 million add-on term loan funding.

As of November 9, 2017, the Company and its partners have executed transactions with 26 different parties under its specialty finance strategy, funding an aggregate $374 million since 2012 in various financial products across the life science sector. At the end of the third quarter, the weighted average projected effective yield of the finance receivables portfolio was 14.0%. 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

We generated revenues of $5.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, driven primarily by $5.4 million in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables. We generated revenues of $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, driven primarily by $2.8 million in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables, and $1.3 million in income related to our investment in an unconsolidated partnership. The increase in revenue is primarily due to a $2.5 million increase in interest and fees earned on new finance receivables. This was partially offset by a $1.3 million decrease in income from our investment in an unconsolidated partnership, which on February 23, 2017 sold its U.S. marketing rights to its underlying intellectual property (please refer to Part I. Financial Information, Item 1. Financial Statements, Note 5 of the Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 for further information on the Holmdel transaction).

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 September 30, 2017. We recognized security impairment expense during the three months ended September 30, 2016 on an equity security of $0.2 million to reflect the security at its fair market value as of September 30, 2016. We also recorded an impairment charge of $0.1 million in connection with a write-off of interest receivable associated with a debt security.

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 $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 from $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, which was due to an increase in compensation-related expenses for additional employees hired in 2017 and an increase in the performance-based bonus accrual.

Other Income (Expense)

Other income (expense), net for the three months ended September 30, 2017 reflected a net fair market value loss of $0.2 million on our warrant derivatives. Other expense for the three months ended September 30, 2016 reflected a net fair market value gain of $0.5 million on our warrant derivatives.

Income Tax Expense

SWK recognized $1.1 million of deferred income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2017. No deferred income tax expense was recognized for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2017, SWK had $16.0 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 decrease in our cash balance was $36.5 million in new and add-on funding, partially offset by the net proceeds of $8.6 million received related to our investment in an unconsolidated entity and cash generated by our investments in our partner companies.

As of September 30, 2017, we had $8.3 million of unfunded commitments outstanding.

Adjusted Net Income

Net income in accordance with GAAP for the three month period ended September 30, 2017, was $2.8 million, or $0.21 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) consolidated net income to SWK’s adjusted net income attributable to SWK Holdings Corporation Stockholders (Non-GAAP) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016:

Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to SWK Holdings Corporation Stockholders $4,003 $2,625 $18,368 $5,166
Non-GAAP adjusted basic income per share $0.31 $0.20 $1.41 $0.39
Non-GAAP adjusted diluted income per share $0.31 $0.20 $1.41 $0.39

In the presentation above, management has deducted 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.
