"Our strong 2015 financial performance is a direct result of the successful implementation of our four pillar strategy. We are a stronger and more diversified company today than we were a year ago," said Fred Wilkinson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Impax. "We established a positive compliance position across our global network and as a result, received 11 new generic product approvals. We achieved our goal of launching 14 generic products, while our Specialty Pharma division benefited from the approval and successful launch of Rytary™ and the continued growth of Zomig® Nasal Spray. In addition, we accelerated our business development efforts with the strategic acquisition and integration of Tower Holdings, Inc., while also strengthening our capital structure."

"For 2016, our goal is to build on this momentum by continuing to focus on our strategic priorities. We currently expect that 2016 will be another growth year for Impax, with double-digit revenue and adjusted earnings per share growth. It will also be an investment year, as we will continue to invest in our quality and compliance programs, our R&D projects and expand our Specialty Pharma sales force to support organic growth. Additionally, we are initiating programs on cost efficiencies to drive future gross margin expansion."

"We ended 2015 with $340 million in cash and cash equivalents, with no senior secured debt outstanding. With one of the most flexible balance sheets in the specialty pharma industry, we are well positioned to invest in organic growth as well as judiciously pursue external growth opportunities that can strengthen our portfolio and create long-term stockholder value."

Fourth Quarter 2015

Total revenues for the Impax Generics division increased $108.9 million to $226.8 million in the fourth quarter 2015, compared to $117.9 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to higher sales from diclofenac sodium gel, the addition of product sales from the Tower acquisition, and sales from 14 generic products launched throughout 2015, including seven products launched during the fourth quarter 2015.

Gross margin in the fourth quarter 2015 decreased to 33.7%, compared to gross margin of 44.8% in the prior year period. Adjusted gross margin in the fourth quarter 2015 decreased to 40.5%, compared to adjusted gross margin of 49.8% in the prior year period. The decrease in gross margin and adjusted gross margin was primarily due to the impact of higher sales of lower margin generic products during 2015 compared to the prior year.

Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter 2015 increased $19.7 million to $34.1 million, compared to $14.4 million in the prior year period, primarily due to higher research and development (R&D) and selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A). The increase in R&D expenses is related to the addition of R&D projects from the acquired Tower companies and the impact of intangible asset impairment charges of $6.4 million. Higher SG&A expenses in the fourth quarter 2015 were primarily the result of an increase in accounts receivable reserves, an increase in penalties paid to customers for delays to supply product and the addition of SG&A expenses from the Tower acquisition.

Full Year 2015

Total revenues for the Impax Generics division increased $161.9 million to $710.9 million for the full year 2015, compared to $549.1 million for the full year 2014. The increase was primarily due to the addition of product sales from the Tower acquisition as well as increased sales from diclofenac sodium gel and from 14 generic products launched during 2015. The increase in full year 2015 revenues was partially offset by the absence of revenues from sales of authorized generic Renvela® during 2015, for which there were sales during the prior year.

Gross margin for the full year 2015 decreased to 36.7%, compared to gross margin of 52.6% for the full year 2014. Adjusted gross margin for the full year 2015 decreased to 42.6%, compared to adjusted gross margin of 59.0% for the full year 2014. The decrease in gross margin and adjusted gross margin was primarily due to the loss of sales of authorized generic Renvela during 2015, which was replaced by lower margin generic products from the Tower acquisition and sales of diclofenac sodium gel.

Total operating expenses for the full year 2015 increased $28.0 million to $91.4 million, compared to $63.4 million for the full year 2014, primarily due to higher R&D and SG&A expenses as noted above under the Generic division's fourth quarter 2014 commentary.

Fourth Quarter 2015

Total revenues for the Impax Specialty Pharma division increased $42.0 million to $55.2 million in the fourth quarter 2015, compared to $13.3 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the launch of Rytary at the end of the first quarter 2015 and the addition of product sales from the Tower acquisition.

Gross margin in the fourth quarter 2015 increased to 69.5%, compared to 60.0% in the prior year period, due to new product sales as noted above, partially offset by higher amortization expenses incurred in connection with the Tower acquisition. Adjusted gross margin in the fourth quarter 2015 increased to 83.6%, compared to adjusted gross margin of 65.5% in the prior year period, primarily due to new product sales as noted above.  

Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter 2015 decreased $0.4 million to $19.5 million, compared to $19.9 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by a reduction in R&D expenses related to the Company's branded initiatives of focusing on late-stage pipeline opportunities, which resulted in a reduction in personnel during the fourth quarter 2014. The lower R&D expenses were partially offset by an increase in advertising and promotion expenses to support the launch of Rytary and related salesforce expansion as well as the addition of selling expenses from the Tower acquisition.

Full Year 2015

Total revenues for the Impax Specialty Pharma division increased $102.6 million to $149.5 million for the full year 2015, compared to $47.0 million for the full year 2014, primarily due to the launch of Rytary and revenues from the Tower acquisition during 2015.

Gross margin for the full year 2015 increased to 61.2%, compared to 51.2% for the full year 2014, due to new product sales as noted above, partially offset by higher amortization expenses incurred in connection with the Tower acquisition. Adjusted gross margin for the full year 2015 increased to 81.2%, compared to adjusted gross margin of 57.4% for the full year 2014, primarily due to new product sales as noted above. 

Total operating expenses for the full year 2015 decreased $9.3 million to $72.2 million, compared to $81.5 million for the full year 2014, primarily due to lower R&D expenses partially offset by higher SG&A expenses as noted above under the Impax Specialty Pharma division's fourth quarter 2014 commentary.

Fourth Quarter 2015

General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter 2015 increased $5.0 million to $30.3 million, compared to $25.3 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily driven by the inclusion of general and administrative expenses from the Tower acquisition, higher information technology costs and higher share-based compensation expense, in each case compared to the prior year period.

Interest expense in the fourth quarter 2015 was $8.2 million, an increase of $8.1 million compared to the prior year period, which was entirely attributable to interest expense incurred on the Company's outstanding 2% convertible senior notes. Of the $8.2 million of interest expense, $3.0 million was cash and $5.2 million was non-cash accretion of debt discount attributable to deferred financing costs and bifurcation of the conversion option of the convertible notes.

Full Year 2015

General and administrative expenses for the full year 2015 increased $40.3 million to $119.2 million, compared to $78.9 million for the full year 2014. The increase in full year 2015 compared to full year 2014 was principally driven by higher business development expenses, the majority of which were transaction and/or integration activities related to the Tower acquisition, the inclusion of general and administrative expenses from the Tower acquisition, increased finance and information technology expenses, and higher share-based compensation expense.

Cash and cash equivalents were $340.4 million as of December 31, 2015, compared to cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $414.9 million as of December 31, 2014. The decrease during 2015 was due to the cash used to pay part of the purchase price in the Tower acquisition during the first quarter 2015.

Interest expense for the full year 2015 was $27.3 million, an increase of $27.2 million, compared to the full year 2014, primarily related to interest expenses on debt issued in connection with the Tower acquisition as well as interest accrued on our outstanding 2% convertible notes. Interest expense in 2015 included $11.2 million of non-cash accretion of debt discount attributable to deferred financing costs and bifurcation of the conversion option of the convertible notes and $2.3 million of cash paid for financing commitment fees prior to the closing of the Tower acquisition.

2016 Financial Guidance

The Company's full year 2016 estimates are based on management's current expectations, including with respect to prescription trends, pricing levels, inventory levels, and the anticipated timing of future product launches and events. The 2016 guidance assumes 12 to 14 generic product launches including six to eight new generic product approvals. The following statements are forward looking and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under "Safe Harbor" below.

  • Total Company revenues to increase at least 15% over full year 2015.
  • Adjusted gross margins as a percent of total revenue are expected to be approximately 50%.
  • Adjusted research and development expenses across the generic and brand divisions of approximately $100 million to $105 million (approximately 10% of total Company revenues). This includes patent litigation expenses.
  • Adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses of approximately $200 million to $210 million (approximately 20% to 21% of total Company revenues).
  • Adjusted interest expense of approximately $12 million.
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $40 million.
  • Adjusted EPS to increase at least 10% over full year 2015 adjusted diluted EPS.
  • Effective tax rate of approximately 34% to 36% on a GAAP basis. The Company anticipates that its non-GAAP effective tax rate may experience volatility as the Company's tax benefits may be high compared to the Company's operating income or loss.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures


Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted cost of revenues, adjusted research and development expenses and adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be construed as substitutes for, or superior to, GAAP net income, GAAP net income per diluted share, GAAP cost of revenues, GAAP research and development expenses and GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses as a measure of financial performance. However, management uses both GAAP financial measures and the disclosed non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate and manage the Company's operations and to better understand its business. Further, management believes the addition of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplementary information to, and facilitates analysis by, investors in evaluating the Company's financial performance, results of operations and trends. The Company's calculations of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted cost of revenues, adjusted research and development expenses and adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses, may not be comparable to similarly designated measures reported by other companies, since companies and investors may differ as to what type of events warrant adjustment.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures



(a)

Reflecting amortization of intangible assets which increased substantially during 2015 as compared to 2014 as a result of the March 2015 acquisition of Tower (including its operating subsidiaries CorePharma LLC and Amedra Pharmaceuticals LLC) and Lineage. Included in "Cost of revenues" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(b)

Professional fees related to business development activities, including Tower integration-related activities. Included in "Selling, general and administrative" expenses on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(c)

Remediation costs related to the Hayward, California manufacturing facility. Included in "Cost of revenues" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(d)

During the fourth quarter 2015, the Company undertook a reduction in force in technical operations and research and development groups. Additionally, during the second quarter 2015, the Company recorded severance charges related to the closing of the Company's packaging and distribution facilities in Pennsylvania. Included in "Cost of revenues", "Selling, general and administrative expenses" and "Research and development expenses" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(e)

During the fourth quarter 2015, the Company recorded a total impairment charge related to our intangible assets of approximately $13.7 million, of which $7.3 million was recorded to "Cost of revenues" and $6.4 million was recorded to "Research and development expenses" on the Consolidated Statements of Income. The impairment charge in 2015 was primarily attributable to deteriorating market conditions for two of the intangible assets acquired in the Tower acquisition. During the first quarter 2014, as a result of a decline in pricing on a currently approved Tolmar product, the Company revised the projections for the product and performed an intangible asset impairment analysis. Based on the results of this analysis, the Company recorded a $2.9 million charge to "Cost of revenues" during 2014. 

(f)

During the third quarter 2015, the Company made payments totaling $0.8 million to third party partners, comprised of an upfront fee in connection with entering into a Development, Manufacturing and Commercialization Agreement and the achievement of a milestone pursuant to a separate Development, Manufacturing, and Commercialization Agreement. In January 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with DURECT Corporation and paid an upfront fee of $2.0 million. Included in "Research and development expense" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(g)

Fair value adjustment of inventory as a result of purchase accounting for the Tower acquisition. Included in "Cost of revenues" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(h)

Fees incurred relating to the Company's $435.0 million term loan to lock in the financing terms beginning from the lenders' commitment of the term loan to the actual allocation of the term loan upon the closing of the Tower transaction. The term loan was subsequently terminated by the Company on June 30, 2015. Included in "Interest expense" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(i)

Related to non-cash accretion of debt discount attributable to deferred financing costs associated with both the $435.0 million term loan and $600.0 million of outstanding 2% convertible senior notes and bifurcation of the conversion option of the convertible notes. Included in "Interest expense" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(j)

Loss on the extinguishment and repayment of the $435.0 million term loan due to the write-off of $16.9 million of deferred financing costs. Included in "Loss on debt extinguishment" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(k)

In connection with the closure of the Company's packaging and distribution facilities in Pennsylvania announced in June 2015, the Company recorded accelerated depreciation expenses on certain assets, as well as accelerated lease payments, in an aggregate amount of $2.8 million during the third quarter of 2015, of which $2.6 million is included in "Cost of revenues" and $0.2 million included in "Selling, general and administrative expenses" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.            

(l)

In July 2015, the Company received an unsolicited offer from Turing Pharmaceuticals AG to purchase the U.S. rights to Daraprim®, one of the intangible assets acquired in the Tower acquisition, as well as the active pharmaceutical ingredient for the product and the finished goods inventory on hand. The sale closed in August 2015, and the Company received proceeds of $55.5 million at closing. The carrying value of the Daraprim rights at the time of the closing was $9.3 million. The Company recognized a gain on sale of intangible asset of $45.6 million, net of expenses. As the inventory was sold at cost, there was no gain or loss recognized. Included on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(m)

The Company recognized $9.0 million during the fourth quarter 2015 and a total of $13.0 million of expense for the full year 2015 related to the net change in the fair value of its derivative instruments. Included in "Net change in fair value of derivatives" on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(n)
