"As we have reached the one year anniversary of our acquisition of Merck KGaA's generics business, I am extremely pleased with the progress that we continue to make in combining the strengths of three high quality businesses, Mylan, Matrix and the former Merck Generics, into one well-positioned and powerful global platform. Led by a robust operating performance, a strong management team and solid business fundamentals, our third quarter results have exceeded our expectations, allowing us to once again increase our full year 2008 earnings guidance while reaffirming our earnings guidance for the next two fiscal years," said Mylan Vice Chairman and CEO Robert J. Coury.
Coury continued, "As a result of our decision to retain the Dey business, I'd like to point out that it has once again exceeded our expectations, a trend that we fully expect to continue. Our opportunistic approach to securing and strengthening our balance sheet has provided us with a balanced capital structure. This, combined with the vertical integration capabilities afforded us through our acquisitions, has us poised for growth and profitability in the current challenging economic environment. In summary, Mylan continues to be a very strong execution play, which we firmly believe will enable us to realize the full underlying earnings potential of our combined company."
Ed Borkowski, Mylan's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our timely access to the capital markets has placed us in an advantageous position without the need to access them again in the foreseeable future. We have well over $1 billion of immediate liquidity available in existing cash and untapped committed credit facilities, which will be further augmented by cash generated though our robust business operations."
Borkowski continued, "Regarding our debt covenants, we are well positioned even before considering the benefit of certain yet to be recognized integration synergies, which we estimate to be an additional $75 to $100 million at Dec. 31, 2008. When combined with our already strong forecasted adjusted EBITDA, the inclusion of this benefit further enhances our long-term confidence to the point that covenant compliance will not be an issue for the foreseeable future."
Detailed Financial Summary
Mylan previously had two reportable segments, the Mylan Segment and the Matrix Segment. With the acquisition of the generics business of Merck KGaA on Oct. 2, 2007 (the "former Merck Generics business"), Mylan now has three reportable segments: Generics Segment (or "Generics"), Specialty Segment (or "Specialty") and the Matrix Segment (or "Matrix"). The former Mylan Segment is included within Generics. Additionally, certain general and administrative and research and development ("R&D") expenses not allocated to the segments, as well as litigation settlements, certain purchase accounting related items and non-operating income and expenses are reported in Corporate/Other.
Total revenues for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008, increased by $1.18 billion to $1.66 billion from $477.1 million in the same prior year period. Approximately $687.2 million represents amounts contributed through the acquisition of the former Merck Generics business. Also included in total revenues for the quarter is $455.0 million related to the recognition of previously deferred revenue related to the sale of our rights to Bystolic.
In February 2008, Mylan sold its rights to Bystolic to Forest Laboratories Holdings Ltd. ("Forest"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Forest Laboratories Inc., for $370.0 million. This amount, along with $100.0 million received from Forest as part of an earlier commercialization, development and distribution agreement related to Bystolic, had been deferred by Mylan and was being amortized as Mylan had certain supply obligations to Forest. However, in September 2008, Mylan completed the transfer of all manufacturing responsibilities to Forest thereby eliminating Mylan's supply obligations. As a result, the earnings process was deemed to be complete and the remaining deferred amounts were recognized in other revenues. Mylan does, however, retain its contractual royalty rights with respect to Bystolic through 2010.
Generics revenues were $1.44 billion and are derived from sales in North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa (collectively, "EMEA") and Asia Pacific.
Total revenues from North America, excluding Bystolic, were $455.8 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008 compared to $397.0 million for the same prior year period, representing an increase of $58.8 million. Of this increase, approximately $30.7 million is the result of the newly acquired businesses.
The remaining increase in revenues is primarily the result of continued strong sales of Mylan's Fentanyl Transdermal System ("fentanyl") and new product launches, partially offset by unfavorable pricing as a result of additional generic competition on certain products in the company's portfolio. Volumes for the quarter, excluding the impact of the acquisition, were consistent as compared to the prior year.
Fentanyl, Mylan's AB-rated generic alternative to Duragesic(R), continued to contribute significantly to the financial results. Despite the entrance into the market of additional generic competition in August 2007, sales of fentanyl have increased primarily due to Mylan's ability to continue to supply the market while certain competitors have recalled their versions of the fentanyl patch. The company expects additional competition in the future that may impact pricing and market share. In the current quarter, new products launched in the United States contributed revenues of $67.9 million.
Total revenues from EMEA and Asia Pacific, as well as revenues from the Specialty Segment, were all the result of the acquisition. For EMEA, revenues for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008, were $393.9 million, the majority of which are derived from the three largest markets; France, the United Kingdom and Germany. Total revenues from Asia Pacific were $137.6 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, and were derived from Mylan's acquired operations in Australia, Japan and New Zealand.
Matrix reported third-party revenues of $90.3 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, compared to $80.0 million for the same prior year period, representing an increase of $10.3 million or 13%. This increase is primarily the result of Matrix's finished dosage form ("FDF") antiretroviral franchise, which was launched in late calendar year 2007.
For Specialty, total revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, were $130.6 million of which $125.4 million represented sales to third parties. Specialty consists of the Dey business, which focuses on the development, manufacturing and marketing of specialty pharmaceuticals in the respiratory and severe allergy markets.
Gross profit for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, excluding the impact of Bystolic, was $456.1 million and gross margins were 38%. Gross margins were negatively impacted by certain purchase accounting items recorded during the current quarter of approximately $105.4 million, which consisted primarily of amortization related to purchased intangible assets and the amortization of the inventory step-up associated with the acquisition of the former Merck Generics business. Excluding such items, gross margins would have been 46.7% Gross margins in the same prior year period, also adjusted to exclude certain purchase accounting items, would have been 49.1%. The decrease on a year over year basis is due to the fact that, on average, the newly acquired entities, particularly in countries outside of the United States, contribute margins that are lower than those realized by Mylan's domestic subsidiaries.
The company reported earnings from operations of $560.8 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008. Excluding the purchase accounting items and Bystolic revenues as discussed above, earnings from operations would have been $211.2 million.
For the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, Mylan reported earnings from operations of $91.9 million. Excluding certain purchase accounting items in the prior year, earnings from operations would have been $104.3 million. This represents a current year increase of $106.9 million or 102%. Of this increase, $98.4 million is the result of acquisitions and the remainder is due to increased sales and gross profit, partially offset by higher R&D and selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense.
Excluding the newly acquired entities, R&D expense increased by $8.8 million or 26% to $42.4 million primarily as a result of increased Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) submissions and payments made under product development agreements. SG&A expense for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, also excluding newly acquired entities, increased by $25.6 million or 26% to $122.6 million. The majority of this increase was realized by Corporate and Other, and is the result of costs associated with the integration of the former Merck Generics business, as well as higher payroll and related costs principally attributable to the build-up of additional corporate infrastructure as a direct result of the acquisition.
Interest expense for the current quarter totaled $87.6 million compared to $23.1 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2007. The increase is due to the additional debt incurred to finance the acquisition of the former Merck Generics business.
Other income, net, was $5.8 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2008, compared to $166.8 million in the same prior year period. The comparable quarter for 2007 included a $142.5 million non-cash mark to market unrealized gain on a deal-contingent foreign currency option contract that was entered into for the then pending acquisition of the former Merck Generics business. Excluding this unrealized gain, the decrease in other income, net, in the current year is due primarily to lower interest and dividend income as a result of lower cash and available for sale securities.
EBITDA for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008, which is defined as net income (loss) (excluding minority interest and income from equity method investees) plus income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, was $697.6 million. After adjusting for certain non-recurring or non-cash items as further discussed below, adjusted EBITDA was $277.0 million. Comparable amounts for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2008, are $698.1 million and $729.5 million, as adjusted.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Mylan is disclosing non-GAAP financial measures when providing financial results. Primarily due to acquisitions, Mylan believes that an evaluation of its ongoing operations (and comparisons of its current operations with historical and future operations) would be difficult if the disclosure of its financial results were limited to financial measures prepared only in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). In addition to disclosing its financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, Mylan is disclosing non-GAAP results that exclude items such as amortization expense and other costs directly associated with the acquisitions as well as certain other non-recurring and non-cash expenses in order to supplement investors' and other readers' understanding and assessment of the company's financial performance because the company's management uses these measures internally for forecasting, budgeting and measuring its operating performance. In addition, the company believes that including EBITDA and supplemental adjustments applied in presenting adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors to demonstrate the company's ability to comply with financial debt covenants and assess the company's ability to incur additional indebtedness. Whenever Mylan uses such a non-GAAP measure, it will provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most closely applicable GAAP measure set forth below and should consider non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Below is a reconciliation of adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted
EPS to GAAP net earnings (loss) and diluted GAAP EPS for the three and nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2008:
(in millions except per share Three months ended Nine months ended
amounts) September 30, 2008 September 30, 2008
GAAP net earnings (loss) & diluted
GAAP EPS (1) $206.8 $0.45 $(280.3) $(0.92)
Purchase accounting related
amortization (2) 105.4 335.7
Goodwill impairment charge - 385.0
Bystolic revenue (455.0) (468.1)
Non-cash interest expense 1.0 1.0
Integration and other non-recurring
expenses (3) 26.8 91.3
Tax effect of the above items (4) 220.4 95.0
Adjusted net earnings and adjusted
diluted EPS $105.4 $0.23 $159.6 $0.52
Weighted average diluted common
shares (1) 458.4 304.3
(1) For the calculation of diluted EPS for the nine months, the GAAP net
loss includes the preferred dividend and does not assume conversion of
the preferred stock into common shares as to do so would be anti-
dilutive. However, for the three months, the conversion of these
shares is assumed in the weighted average diluted common shares, and
as such, the preferred dividend is excluded from GAAP net earnings in
the calculation of diluted EPS.
(2) Includes amortization expense related to purchased intangible assets
as well as amortization of the inventory step-up related to the
acquisition of the former Merck Generics business.
(3) Integration and other non-recurring expenses include charges
principally related to the acquisition and integration of the former
Merck Generics business (e.g., non-recurring professional and
consulting fees, retention and other non-recurring expenses).
(4) The tax effect is calculated assuming an annual effective tax rate for
the resulting adjusted earnings. This tax effect adjustment results in
an effective tax rate on adjusted earnings that approximates 38%
before the impact of any tax synergies.
Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net earnings (loss) to adjusted
EBITDA for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2008:
