PDL BioPharma Announces Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012.


Royalty revenues for the second quarter of 2012 increased three percent to $125.9 million from $122.1 million reported in the second quarter of 2011. For the first six months of 2012, royalty revenues increased four percent to $203.2 million from $195.5 million reported in the comparable period of 2011. Total revenue for the first six months of 2012 of $203.2 million is one percent lower than total revenue for the first six months of 2011 of $205.5 million, as a result of a one-time settlement payment of $10 million from UCB Pharma received in 2011.

Royalty revenues for the second quarter of 2012 are based on first quarter 2012 product sales by PDL's licensees. The growth in royalty revenues was driven primarily by increased royalties from first quarter 2012 sales of Herceptin®, which is marketed by Genentech and Roche, Lucentis® and Xolair®, which are marketed by Genentech and Novartis, and Tysabri®, which is marketed by Elan and Biogen Idec. Royalty revenue for the second quarter is net of payments made under PDL's February 2011 settlement agreement with Novartis Pharma AG.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $5.1 million, compared with $3.8 million in the same quarter of 2011. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses were $12.1 million compared to $9.6 million in the comparable period of 2011. The increase in expenses for both the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, is primarily due to expenses related to efforts to acquire new revenue generating assets, compensation related expenses and legal expenses.

Net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $73.5 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $70.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2011. Net income for the first six months of 2012 was $113.7 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $114.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, in the same period of 2011. Adjusting for the non-cash interest expense associated with the Series 2012 Notes and 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 (May 2015 Notes), non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $75.1 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $70.8 million, or $0.39 per diluted share for the same period of 2011. Non-GAAP net income for the first six months of 2012 was $116.9 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $115.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share for the same period of 2011. The non-GAAP net income adjustment for the three and six month period of 2011 includes an adjustment for the convertible note repurchase transaction in June 2011. We are presenting non-GAAP measures because we believe this exclusion facilitates comparison to PDL's cash operating results.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months of 2012 was $122.8 million, compared with $87.9 million for the first six months of 2011. At June 30, 2012, PDL had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $229.3 million, compared with $227.9 million at December 31, 2011. 

Recent DevelopmentsCredit Agreement with Merus Labs International, Inc.In July 2012, PDL loaned $35 million to Merus Labs International, Inc. (Merus Labs) in connection with its acquisition of a commercial-stage pharmaceutical product and related assets (the Assets). In addition, PDL agreed to provide a $20 million letter of credit on behalf of Merus Labs that the seller of the Assets may draw upon to satisfy the remaining $20 million purchase price obligation on July 11, 2013. Draws on the Letter of Credit will be funded from the proceeds of an additional loan to Merus Labs. Outstanding borrowings under the July 2012 loan bear interest at the rate of 13.5% per annum and outstanding borrowings as a result of draws on the Letter of Credit bear interest at the rate of 14.0% per annum. Merus Labs is required to make four periodic principal payments in respect to the July 2012 loan, with repayment of the remaining principal balance of all loans due on March 31, 2015. The borrowings are subject to mandatory prepayments upon certain asset dispositions or debt issuances under the terms set forth in the credit agreement. The loan is secured by substantially all of the assets of Merus Labs.


On June 8, 2012, Genentech announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Perjeta (pertuzumab). Perjeta is approved in combination with Herceptin and docetaxel chemotherapy for the treatment of people with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer who have not received prior anti-HER2 therapy or chemotherapy for metastatic disease.

Genentech notified PDL on June 18, 2012, that Perjeta is a licensed product. PDL will receive royalties on sales of Perjeta in the quarter following the first quarter of Perjeta sales in accordance with Genentech's license agreements with PDL.

On June 14, 2012, PDL paid the second quarterly dividend to stockholders of record totaling $21 million using earnings generated in the second quarter of 2012.
