INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (Nasdaq: PDLI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.
Total revenues from continuing operations in 2009 were $318.2 million, an eight percent increase from $294.2 million in 2008. For the fourth quarter of 2009, total revenues from continuing operations were $58.3 million, compared with $68.7 million for the same period of 2008. Included in 2008 fourth quarter revenues was the first of two $12.5 million settlement installments from Alexion Pharmaceuticals. The second payment was received and recognized in the second quarter of 2009.
Royalty revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 are based on third quarter product sales by PDL's licensees and include $3.2 million for Synagis®, which is marketed by MedImmune. When compared with the fourth quarter of 2008, underlying product sales of Avastin®, which is marketed by Genentech and Roche, Lucentis®, which is marketed by Genentech and Novartis, and Tysabri®, which is marketed by Elan and Biogen Idec, increased by more than 20 percent each. Royalties from sales of Herceptin®, marketed by Genentech and Roche, decreased eight percent despite an eight percent increase in underlying Herceptin sales because of a change in the sales mix of ex-U.S. based manufactured and sold Herceptin (for which PDL receives a flat three percent royalty rate) and U.S. manufactured or sold Herceptin (for which the fourth quarter effective rate received from Genentech was one percent). Changes in foreign currency conversion rates did not have a significant impact in the fourth quarter of 2009 when compared to the same period in 2008.
Total general and administrative expenses from continuing operations in 2009 were $21.1 million, compared with $51.5 million in 2008. For the fourth quarter of 2009, general and administrative expenses from continuing operations were $5.5 million, compared with $15.9 million for the same period of 2008. The decrease was primarily driven by the Company's reduced cost structure. Significant expense items in 2009 were legal fees of $10.9 million, compensation and benefits of $3.4 million, professional service fees of $2.4 million and non-cash compensation and depreciation costs of $1.8 million.
Net income in 2009 was $189.7 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, compared with net income of $68.4 million in 2008, or $0.47 per diluted share. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $28.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with net income of $40.6 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the same period in 2008.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $187.0 million in 2009, compared with $80.1 million in 2008. At December 31, 2009, PDL had cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash of $303.2 million, compared with $147.5 million at December 31, 2008.
In 2009, PDL recognized $90.6 million in income tax expense in its net income. However, the actual cash outlay for taxes was $29.3 million, because PDL was able to use $173.7 million in federal net operating loss carry forwards and $16.4 million in federal income tax credit carry forwards. While PDL had $46.5 million in federal net operating loss carry forwards remaining at the end of 2009, it will be limited to using only $1.8 million per year in determining taxes to be paid for each year going forward. At the end of 2009, the Company had $22.6 million federal income tax credit carry forwards of which it anticipates $19.8 million will be used in 2010.
PDL previously announced that it will pay two special dividends to its stockholders in 2010. Each of the dividends will be $0.50 per share. The first special dividend will be paid on April 1, 2010 to all stockholders who own shares of PDL on March 15, 2010. The second special dividend will be paid on October 1, 2010 to all stockholders who own shares of PDL on September 15, 2010. PDL does not pay regular dividends.
First Quarter 2010 Revenue Guidance
PDL will continue to provide revenue guidance on a quarterly basis at the beginning of the third month of each quarter for that quarter, as it did in 2009.
Revenue guidance for the first quarter of 2010 is of $62 million as compared with actual results $62.6 million for the same period in 2009. Included in first quarter results in 2009 was $17.1 million from MedImmune for sales of Synagis. The Company's first quarter 2010 guidance does not include royalties for Synagis due to ongoing legal disputes with MedImmune. Excluding MedImmune, anticipated first quarter 2010 revenue grew by more than 35 percent over the first quarter of 2009. The growth is primarily driven by increased fourth quarter 2009 sales of Avastin, Herceptin, Lucentis, Tysabri and Actemra for which PDL received royalties in the first quarter of 2010.
Reported sales of Avastin and Herceptin increased 18 percent and 11 percent, respectively, when compared to the same period for the prior year. Also contributing to increased Avastin and Herceptin royalties are product sales that are ex-U.S. manufactured and sold and for which PDL receives a flat three percent royalty as compared to the tiered royalty that it receives from Genentech for product sales that are either manufactured or sold in the United States. As a percent of total Herceptin sales, ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Herceptin increased to 43 percent from 16 percent for the same period in the prior year. Ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Avastin sales represented five percent of total Avastin sales. This is the first quarter in which PDL has received royalties on sales of ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Avastin.
Reported sales of Lucentis increased 64 percent when compared to the same period for the prior year. Ex-U.S. sales of Lucentis, which is approved in more than 80 countries worldwide, increased 88 percent when compared to the same period for the prior year and represented 57 percent of total global sales.
Reported sales of Tysabri increased 32 percent when compared to the same period for the prior year. Ex-U.S. sales of Tysabri increased 42 percent when compared to the same period for the prior year, and represented 53 percent of total global sales. Elan recently reported a 30 percent increase in the worldwide Tysabri patient population at the end of December 2009 as compared with December 2008.
The sales information presented above is based on information provided by PDL's licensees in their quarterly reports to the Company.
