Cambrex Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results
Date:8/1/2012

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambrex Corporation (NYSE: CBM) reports second quarter results for the period ended June 30, 2012.

Highlights

  • Reported sales increased by 14.3%, and excluding the impact of foreign currency, sales increased 20.2% compared to the second quarter of 2011. 
  • EBITDA increased 45.9% to $19.2 million in the quarter, compared to $13.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. 
  • Debt, net of cash was $58.2 million at the end of the quarter, an improvement of $5.1 million during the quarter which includes a negative $1.1 million currency impact on foreign cash balances.
  • Full year sales guidance, excluding the impact of foreign currency, revised to an increase of between 10% and 13% versus 2011 (prior guidance between 2% and 6%) and full year EBITDA guidance revised to be between $54 and $58 million (prior guidance between $47 and $53 million).
  • Second Quarter of 2012 Operating Results
    Sales in the second quarter of 2012 of $77.1 million were 14.3% higher than the second quarter of 2011.  Foreign exchange unfavorably impacted sales by 5.9%.  The increase is primarily due to higher volumes of controlled substances and generic active pharmaceutical ingredients ("APIs").

    Gross margins in the second quarter of 2012 increased to 36.9% from 28.2% in the second quarter of 2011.  Foreign currency favorably impacted second quarter 2012 margins by 1.5%.  The increase is due to higher production volumes, leading to increased plant efficiencies and favorable product mix. 

    Selling, General and Administrative Expenses in the second quarter of 2012 were $12.0 million compared to $9.2 million in the same period last year.  The increase is primarily the result of increased personnel related expenses, accruals for higher annual incentive awards, higher expenses related to stock-based compensation as a result of the Company's higher stock price, and higher medical expenses and professional fees.

    Operating Profit increased to $13.9 million in the second quarter of 2012 from $7.3 million in the second quarter of 2011.  As described above, increased profits, primarily driven by higher sales volumes, were partially offset by lower pricing and higher operating expenses.

    Net Interest Expense increased to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 from $0.6 million in the same period last year.  This increase is primarily due to higher average interest rates partially offset by lower average debt in the second quarter of 2012.  The average interest rate on debt was 2.3% in the second quarter of 2012 versus 1.5% in the second quarter of 2011. 

    Equity in Losses of Partially-Owned Affiliates includes $0.4 million and $0.3 million in the second quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively, for the Company's share of losses in Zenara Pharma, a pharmaceutical company focused on the formulation of finished dosage form products.  Cambrex owns a 51% stake in Zenara.  The Company's share of Zenara's losses includes $0.2 million and $0.3 million of amortization expense in the second quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively.

    The Provision for Income Taxes totaled $2.9 million and resulted in an effective tax rate of 22.5% in the second quarter of 2012.  The effective tax rate improved during the quarter due to an increase in profitability in the U.S. where the Company is able to utilize tax attributes to offset domestic tax expense.  The Company's effective tax rate has been and is expected to remain highly sensitive to the geographic mix of income.

    Net Income for the second quarter of 2012 was $9.9 million or $0.33 per share compared to $4.8 million or $0.16 per share in the second quarter of 2011.

    Capital expenditures and depreciation for the second quarter of 2012 were $4.3 million and $5.3 million, respectively, compared to $3.0 million and $5.8 million in the second quarter of 2011, respectively.

    Steven M. Klosk, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are very pleased with our second quarter performance, with another quarter of strong sales and profit growth across most of our product categories.  The first half of the year, fueled by strong sales of controlled substances and generic APIs, is the best operating performance that we have achieved in several years.  We are encouraged by the pipeline of opportunities, especially in the U.S. market, and continue to see strong orders for our generic products.  While the second half of 2012 will not be as strong as the first half, I remain optimistic that we are well positioned to continue the growth that we are currently experiencing."

    Guidance – Continuing Operations
    The Company expects that full year 2012 sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency, will increase between 10% and 13% versus 2011, and that full year 2012 EBITDA will be between $54 and $58 million.  EBITDA guidance is for continuing operations and excludes the impact of any M&A or restructuring activities.  The above guidance does not reflect Zenara, which is accounted for using the equity method, and as such is not consolidated into the Company's results.  Cambrex's income statement reflects 51% of Zenara's net results within Equity in Losses of Partially-Owned Affiliates.  For 2012, the Company continues to expect Zenara to have revenues in the low single digit millions and a small EBITDA loss.

    Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $16 to $19 million and depreciation is expected to be $21 to $23 million in 2012.

    The financial information contained in this press release is unaudited, subject to revision and should not be considered final until the Company's second quarter 2012 Form 10-Q is filed with the SEC.

    Forward Looking Statements
    This document contains "forward-looking statements," including statements regarding expected performance, especially those set forth under the heading "Guidance – Continuing Operations," including the Company's expectation that full year 2012 sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency, will increase between 10% and 13% versus 2011, that full year 2012 EBITDA will be between $54 and $58 million, that Zenara will have revenues in the low single digit millions and a small EBITDA loss, that capital expenditures will be approximately $16 to $19 million and that depreciation will be $21 to $23 million in 2012.  These statements may be identified by the fact that they use words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "estimates," "believes" or similar expressions.  Any forward-looking statements contained herein are based on current plans and expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from current expectations.  The factors described in Item 1A of Part I of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2011, captioned "Risk Factors," or otherwise described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as any cautionary language in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2011, provide examples of such risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from the expectations the Company describes in its forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, pharmaceutical outsourcing trends, competitive pricing or product developments, governmental legislation and regulations (particularly environmental issues), tax rate, interest rate, technology, manufacturing and legal issues, including the outcome of outstanding litigation disclosed in the Company's public filings, changes in foreign exchange rates, uncollectible receivables, loss on disposition of assets, cancellations or delays in renewal of contracts, lack of suitable raw materials or packaging materials, and the Company's ability to receive regulatory approvals for its products.

    For further details and a discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties, investors are encouraged to review the Cambrex Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, including the Forward-Looking Statement sections therein, and other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. 

    Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
    EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company defines as operating profit plus depreciation and amortization expense.  Other companies may have a different definition of EBITDA and, therefore, EBITDA may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies.  EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as net income or operating profit, and should not be considered a measure of Cambrex's liquidity.  Cambrex uses EBITDA as one of several metrics to assess and analyze its operational results and trends.  Cambrex also believes it is useful to investors because it is a common operating performance metric as well as a metric routinely used to assess potential enterprise value.  Cambrex has provided a reconciliation from U.S. GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts at the end of this press release.
