During the second quarter of 2014 we identified certain tax liabilities that should have been recorded as tax expense in various immaterial amounts during the periods from 2007 through 2013. Financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 have been updated from previously reported amounts to reflect the immaterial prior period income tax adjustments.

    Segment ResultsDiscovery Services and Development/Small Scale Manufacturing

    Discovery Services and Development/Small Scale Manufacturing (DDS) contract revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $19.5 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2013 as decreases in Discovery Services were offset by increases in Development/Small Scale Manufacturing. DDS contract margins were 19.1% for the second quarter of 2014, compared with 13.1% for the second quarter of 2013, driven by a stronger mix of business and the benefit of cost reduction initiatives in both Discovery Services and Development/ Small Scale Manufacturing.

    DDS contract revenue for the first half of 2014 was $39.0 million, a decrease of 2% from the first half of 2013 as decreases in Discovery Services were largely offset by increases in Development/Small Scale Manufacturing. DDS contract margins were 17.8% for the first half of 2014, compared with 14.9% for the first half of 2013.

    Large Scale Manufacturing
    Large Scale Manufacturing (LSM) contract revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $42.0 million, an increase of 34% from $31.3 million in 2013.  LSM contract revenue for the second quarter of 2014 includes $5.5 million of revenues from the Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals business that was acquired in April 2014. LSM adjusted contract margins were 30.5% in the second quarter of 2014, compared with 18.4% for the second quarter of 2013, driven by increased capacity utilization and improved mix including the Cedarburg business.

    LSM contract revenue for the first half of 2014 was $73.5 million, an increase of 27% from $57.7 million in 2013.  LSM adjusted contract margins were 25.9% in the first half of 2014, compared with 19.2% for the first half of 2013.

    Liquidity and Capital ResourcesAt June 30, 2014, AMRI had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $136.9 million, compared to $171.0 million at March 31, 2014. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to the use of $38.7 million to acquire Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals, $4.8 million in debt payments, and $3.5 million of capital expenditures, offset by cash flow from operations of $12.4 million. Total common shares outstanding, net of treasury shares, were 32,419,424 at June 30, 2014.  Since the close of the second quarter we subsequently used $109.3 million of cash to acquire the Oso Biopharmaceuticals Manufacturing business.

    Forward-looking StatementsThis press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks and uncertainties. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the company's estimates of revenue, contract revenue, adjusted EBITDA adjusted diluted earnings per share for the full year 2014, statements made by the company's Chief Executive Officer, including statements under the caption "Updated Financial Guidance," statements regarding the strength of the company's business and prospects, statements regarding the impact of recent acquisition activity, and statements concerning the company's momentum and long-term growth, including expected results for 2014. Readers should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. The company's actual results may differ materially from such forward-looking statements as a result of numerous factors, some of which the company may not be able to predict and may not be within the company's control. Factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, trends in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies' outsourcing of chemical research and development, including softness in these markets; sales of Allegra® and the impact of the "at-risk" launch of generic Allegra®, the OTC conversion of Allegra® and the generic and OTC sales of Allegra in Japan on the company's receipt of significant royalties under the Allegra® license agreement; the success of the sales of other products for which the company receives royalties; the risk that the company will not be able to replicate either in the short or long term the revenue stream that has been derived from the royalties payable under the Allegra® license agreements; the risk that clients may terminate or reduce demand under any strategic or multi-year deal; the company's ability to enforce its intellectual property and technology rights; the company's ability to obtain financing sufficient to meet its business needs; the company's ability to successfully comply with heightened FDA scrutiny on aseptic fill/finish operations; the results of further FDA inspections; the company's ability to effectively maintain compliance with applicable FDA and DEA regulations; the company's ability to integrate past or future acquisitions, including Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals and Oso Biopharmaceuticals Manufacturing , and make such acquisitions accretive to the company's business model, the company's ability to take advantage of proprietary technology and expand the scientific tools available to it, the ability of the company's strategic investments and acquisitions to perform as expected, as well as those risks discussed in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 17, 2014, and the company's other SEC filings. Revenue, contract revenue, adjusted diluted EPS, adjusted EBITDA and other financial guidance offered by senior management today represent a point-in-time estimate and are based on information as of the date of this press release. Senior management has made numerous assumptions in providing this guidance which, while believed to be reasonable, may not prove to be accurate. Numerous factors, including those noted above, may cause actual results to differ materially from the guidance provided. The company expressly disclaims any current intention or obligation to update the guidance provided or any other forward-looking statement in this press release to reflect future events or changes in facts assumed for purposes of providing this guidance or otherwise affecting the forward-looking statements contained in this press release.

    Non-GAAP Adjustment ItemsTo supplement our financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we have presented non-GAAP measures of income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) and income (loss) per diluted share, as adjusted to exclude certain restructuring charges, executive transition costs, convertible debt interest and amortization charges, business acquisition costs, litigation settlement charges, write-offs of deferred financing costs,  non-cash long-lived asset impairment charges, losses on disposals of assets related to restructuring activities, insurance demutualization gains, depreciation and amortization of purchase accounting adjustments, non-recurring income tax adjustments, and postretirement benefit plan settlement gains in the 2014 and 2013 periods.  We have also presented non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA, which in addition to the items excluded above, further excluded the impact of interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and income tax expense or benefit.  Exclusion of these non-recurring items allow comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time.  We believe presentation of these non-GAAP measures enhances an overall understanding of our historical financial performance because we believe they are an indication of the performance of our base business. Management uses these non-GAAP measures as a basis for evaluating our financial performance as well as for budgeting and forecasting of future periods. For these reasons, we believe they can be useful to investors. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) or income (loss) per diluted share prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in Tables 1 and 2.  Our projected 2014 adjusted EPS and EBITDA, however, are only provided on an adjusted basis.  It is not feasible to provide GAAP EPS guidance because the items excluded are difficult to predict and estimate and are primarily dependent on future events.
