PDL BioPharma Announces Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results
Date:7/27/2011

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $122.1 million, compared to $120.3 million for the same period of 2010, a one percent year-over-year increase. Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2011, were $205.5 million, compared to $182.4 million for the same period of 2010. Included in results for the six months ended June 30, 2011, and not included in the same period in 2010, is a $10.0 million settlement payment from UCB Pharma S.A. resolving all legal disputes between the two companies. Excluding this one-time payment, revenue increased seven percent year over year for the six month period ended June 30, 2011.

Royalty revenues for the second quarter of 2011 are based on first quarter 2011 product sales by PDL's licensees. Revenue growth for the second quarter of 2011 over the same period in 2010 was primarily driven by increased first quarter 2011 sales by the Company's licensees of Herceptin®, 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. Increases were offset, in part, by reduced royalties on sales of Avastin®. PDL received royalties for these product sales in the second quarter of 2011. The second quarter royalty payment received from Genentech included royalties generated on all worldwide sales.

Total general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2011 were $3.8 million, compared with $8.8 million for the same period of 2010. Total general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2011, were $9.6 million, compared to $18.2 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease in the general and administrative expenses for both the quarter and six month period ended June 30, 2011, was primarily driven by decreases in legal and professional services expenses. The decrease in legal expense is a result of the conclusion of several legal matters in the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in professional services expense resulted from reduced costs associated with one-time special project costs.

Total non-operating expense, net, for the three months ended June 30, 2011, was $10.4 million as compared with $27.8 million for the same period in 2010. In the three months ended June 30, 2011, PDL redeemed $133.5 million of its 2.00% Convertible Senior Notes due February 15, 2012 (the 2012 Notes), at 100.29 percent of face value that resulted in a loss on repurchase of $0.8 million. In the three months ended June 30, 2010, PDL repurchased $84.2 million of its 2.75% Convertible Subordinated Notes due August 16, 2023, at a 19 percent premium which resulted in a loss on repurchase of $16.3 million. The reduction in interest expense is primarily attributable to partial repayment of PDL's QHP PhaRMA(SM) Senior Secured Notes due March 15, 2015, for which the current principal balance at June 30, 2011, was $141.7 million as compared with $249.6 million at June 30, 2010.

Net income for the second quarter of 2011 was $70.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $50.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the same period of 2010. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2011, was $114.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted share compared to $76.1 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the same period in 2010. Adjusting for the convertible note repurchase transactions described above and the amortization of the non-cash debt discount accounting treatment for the 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due May 1, 2015 (the May 2015 Notes), non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2011 was $70.8 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared with $64.9 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2011, was $115.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with $90.9 million, or $0.52 per diluted share in the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the six months ended June 30, 2011, was $87.9 million, compared with $123.6 million net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2010. At June 30, 2011, PDL had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $236.3 million, compared with $248.2 million at December 31, 2010.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS2012 Notes Redemption and Issuance of $155.25 Million of May 2015 NotesOn May 16, 2011, we issued $155.25 million in aggregate principal amount of the May 2015 Notes in an underwritten public offering. The May 2015 Notes were issued at an initial conversion ratio of 126.2985 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the May 2015 Notes, or a conversion price of approximately $7.92 per share. The conversion ratio was subsequently adjusted to 129.2740 shares of the Company's common stock per $1,000 of principal amount, or a conversion price of approximately $7.74 per share, in connection with the cash dividend paid on June 15, 2011. The May 2015 Notes are convertible on or after November 1, 2014 or upon the occurrence of certain conditions as described in the indenture. If a conversion occurs, to the extent that the conversion value exceeds the principal amount, the principal amount is due in cash and the difference between the conversion value and the principal amount is due in shares of common stock.

Concurrent with the issuance of the May 2015 Notes, the Company entered into privately negotiated purchased call options for the Company's common stock. The purchased call options transactions cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, the number of shares of the Company's common stock that underlie the May 2015 Notes and are intended to reduce the dilutive impact of the conversion feature of the May 2015 Notes. To reduce the hedging costs of the purchased call options, the Company also entered into privately negotiated warrant transactions with the hedge counterparties relating to the same number of shares of the Company's common stock. The warrant transactions could have a dilutive effect to the extent that the market price per share of the Company's common stock exceeds the applicable strike price of the warrants on any expiration date of the warrants.

On June 30, 2011, using the proceeds from the issuance of the May 2015 Notes, we redeemed the remaining $133.5 million in aggregate principal of our 2012 Notes at a redemption price of 100.29 percent of face value for aggregate consideration of $133.9 million plus accrued but unpaid interest of $1.0 million. With the completion of this redemption on June 30, 2011, the 2012 Notes were fully retired.

Adjustments to Convertible Note Conversion RatiosIn connection with the dividend payment on June 15, 2011, the conversion ratios for our convertible notes were increased. The conversion ratios for each of our 2012 Notes (which were redeemed in full on June 30, 2011) and our 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due February 15, 2015 (the 2015 Notes), were adjusted to 147.887 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount, or a conversion price of approximately $6.76 per share, effective June 9, 2011. The conversion ratio for our May 2015 Notes was adjusted to 129.2740 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount, or a conversion price of approximately $7.74 per share, effective June 6, 2011. The conversion ratios for each of the 2012 Notes and the 2015 Notes was previously 144.474 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount, or a conversion price of approximately $6.92 per share. The conversion ratio for the May 2015 Notes was previously 126.2985 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount, or a conversion price of approximately $7.92 per share.

Dividend PaymentOn February 25, 2011, our board of directors adopted a regular, quarterly dividend policy and declared that the quarterly dividends to be paid to our stockholders in 2011 will be $0.15 per share of common stock. The dividends are payable on March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of 2011 to stockholders of record on March 8, June 8, September 8 and December 8 of 2011, the record dates for each of the dividend payments, respectively. On each of March 15 and June 15, 2011, we paid the quarterly dividend to our stockholders of $21.0 million using earnings generated in the first six months of 2011 and cash on hand.

Genentech and Roche DisputeIn August 2010, we received a letter from Genentech, sent on behalf of Roche and Novartis, asserting that Avastin, Herceptin, Lucentis and Xolair® (the Genentech Products) do not infringe our supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) granted to us by various countries in Europe for each of the Genentech Products and seeking a response to these assertions. The SPCs covering the Genentech Products effectively extend the patent protection for our European Patent No. 0 451 216B until December 2014, except that the SPCs for Herceptin will generally expire in July 2014. We responded to Genentech, stating that we believe its assertions of non-infringement are without merit and that we disagreed fundamentally with its assertions of non-infringement with respect to the Genentech Products. In August 2010, we filed a complaint in the Second Judicial District of Nevada, Washoe County, against Genentech and Roche seeking to enforce our rights under our 2003 settlement agreement with Genentech and an order from the court declaring that Genentech is obligated to pay royalties to us on sales of the Genentech Products that are manufactured and sold outside of the United States.

On July 7, 2011, the Second Judicial District Court of Nevada ruled in favor of PDL on two motions to dismiss filed by Genentech and Roche in this lawsuit. The court denied Genentech and Roche's motion to dismiss four of PDL's five claims for relief and, further, denied Roche's separate motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction. The court dismissed one of PDL's claims that Genentech committed a bad-faith breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing stating that, based on the current state of the pleadings, no "special relationship" had been established between Genentech and PDL, as required under Nevada law.

The effect of the Court's ruling is that PDL is permitted to continue to pursue its claims that (i) Genentech is obligated to pay royalties to PDL on international sales of the Genentech Products; (ii) Genentech, by challenging, at the behest of Roche and Novartis, whether PDL's SPCs cover the Genentech Products breached its contractual obligations to PDL under the 2003 settlement agreement; (iii) Genentech breached the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing with respect to the 2003 settlement agreement and (iv) Roche intentionally and knowingly interfered with PDL's contractual relationship with Genentech in conscious disregard of PDL's rights.

PDL seeks compensatory damages, including liquidated damages and other monetary remedies set forth in the 2003 settlement agreement, punitive damages and attorney's fees as a result of Genentech and Roche's conduct. The ultimate outcome of this litigation is uncertain and we may not be successful in our allegations.

Revenue Guidance for 2011As previously announced, PDL will continue to provide revenue guidance for each quarter in the third month of that quarter. Third quarter 2011 revenue guidance will be provided in early September.
