PDL BioPharma Announces First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.


Royalty revenues for the first quarter of 2013 increased 19 percent over the same period of 2012. Total revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $91.8 million compared to $77.3 million for the same period in 2012. 

Royalty revenues for the first quarter of 2013 are based on fourth quarter 2012 product sales by PDL's licensees. The growth in royalty revenues was driven primarily by increased royalties from fourth quarter 2012 sales of Avastin®, Herceptin®, Lucentis®, Tysabri®, and Actemra®.  

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2013 were $7.2 million compared with $6.9 million in the same period of 2012.

Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $53.5 million or $0.36 per diluted share as compared with $40.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted share in the comparable quarter of 2012. The increase in net income is due to the 19 percent increase in royalty revenues and the resulting 33 percent increase in net income.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2013 was $54.0 million compared with net cash provided by operating activities of $17.9 million for the first quarter of 2012.  At March 31, 2013, PDL had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $187.2 million, compared with $148.7 million at December 31, 2012.

Recent DevelopmentsStructured Financing and Royalty Transaction with Avinger
On April 18, 2013, PDL entered into a Credit Agreement with Avinger, Inc. The total financing of up to $40 million was provided pursuant to a Credit Agreement that included $20 million in cash funded to Avinger on April 18, 2013, and up to $20 million in additional funds to Avinger upon the accomplishment of certain specified revenue milestones.  In exchange, PDL will receive interest on the principal amount outstanding and a low, single-digit royalty on Avinger's revenues from the sale of Avinger's suite of products through April 2018.  Avinger is a designer of therapeutic devices incorporating intravascular imaging, and is a pioneer of the lumivascular approach to treating vascular disease.  This financing assists Avinger in the commercialization of its currently marketed Ocelot™ and Lightbox next-generation lumivascular catheter devices used to open totally occluded arteries in the legs, and in the development of Pantheris, Avinger's next-generation lumivascular atherectomy device.

Peter Garcia Appointed Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
