Codexis Grows Revenue 35 Percent in Third Quarter; Raises 2010 Outlook

REDWOOD CITY, Cailf., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Codexis, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDXS) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.  

Financial HighlightsRevenue:  For the third quarter of 2010, the company reported revenues of $27.1 million, an increase of 35% from $20.1 million in the third quarter of 2009, primarily due to an increase of $4.9 million in product revenue, representing an increase of 105% over the same time period.

Operating Expenses:  Research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2010 were $13.1 million, compared to $12.2 million for the third quarter of 2009. The increase was primarily due to higher depreciation and stock-based compensation expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2010 declined to $7.9 million compared to $8.7 million same period of 2009 primarily due to a reduction in discretionary expenses.

Net Income/(Loss):  Net loss was ($2.7) million, or ($0.08) per share, based on 34.2 million weighted average common shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2010.  This compares to a net loss of ($6.2) million during the third quarter of 2009.  

Adjusted EBITDA:  On a non-GAAP basis, Adjusted EBITDA increased from ($2.7) million in the third quarter of 2009 to $2.1 million in 2010. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting net loss for net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and preferred stock warrant fair market valuation.  A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is presented below.

Cash:  Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at September 30, 2010 decreased to $99.3 million compared to $100.3 million at June 30, 2010.

Codexis increases its full year revenue guidance for 2010. For full year 2010, Codexis forecasts revenues of greater than $100 million, which would represent growth of 21% or greater compared to 2009. Codexis affirms its expectation that Adjusted EBITDA will be positive for the full year 2010; and expects Adjusted EBITDA will be greater than $7 million for the year.

55,962Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial InformationAdjusted EBITDA (calculated by adjusting net loss for net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and preferred stock warrant fair market valuation ) for the third quarter of 2010 was $2.1 million compared to a loss of $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2009. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, Adjusted EBITDA improved to $5.5 million from a loss of $6.2 million in the same period in 2009. The key driver of this improvement was a $7.1 million reduction in net loss.

In this press release, in addition to GAAP financial results, we present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in evaluating management's performance when determining incentive compensation and to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.  

A reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA is included in the table below.

(6,162)Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debts;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • Non-cash compensation is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package, although we exclude it as an expense when evaluating our ongoing operating performance for a particular period.

  • Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
