PDL BioPharma Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110822/SF55808LOGO)

Royalty revenues for the third quarter of 2012 increased two percent to $85.2 million from $83.4 million reported in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012, royalty revenues increased three percent to $288.5 million from $278.8 million reported in the comparable period of 2011. Total revenue for the first nine months of 2012 of $288.5 million is flat when compared to total revenue for the first nine months of 2011 of $289.2 million, as a result of a one-time settlement payment of $10 million from UCB Pharma received in 2011.

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

General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $5.6 million, compared with $4.0 million in the same quarter of 2011. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses were $17.7 million compared to $13.5 million in the comparable period of 2011. The increase in expenses for both the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, is primarily due to expenses related to efforts to acquire new revenue generating assets, compensation related expenses and litigation expenses.

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $48.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $45.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2011. Net income for the first nine months of 2012 was $162.3 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $160.5 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, in the same period of 2011.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2012 was $158.6 million, compared with $124.6 million for the first nine months of 2011. At September 30, 2012, PDL had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $160.4 million, compared with $227.9 million at December 31, 2011.   

Recent Developments

Revenue Interests Purchase Agreement with AxoGen, Inc.

In October 2012, PDL entered into a Revenue Interests Purchase Agreement (Royalty Agreement) with AxoGen, Inc. pursuant to which PDL will receive high single digit royalties on AxoGen's net revenues generated by the sale, distribution or other use of AxoGen's products. The Royalty Agreement has an eight year term, and is subject to agreed-upon minimum payments beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014 and the right to require AxoGen to repurchase the revenue contract at the end of the fourth year. AxoGen has been granted certain rights to call the revenue contract in years five through eight. The total consideration PDL paid to AxoGen for the royalty rights was $20.8 million, including $19 million paid to AxoGen at the closing of the transaction and $1.8 million paid to AxoGen in August 2012, pursuant to an Interim Revenue Interest Purchase Agreement (Interim Agreement) between AxoGen and PDL. The Interim Agreement was terminated in connection with the execution of the Royalty Agreement. AxoGen was required to use a portion of the proceeds from the Royalty Agreement to pay the outstanding balance under its existing credit facility. AxoGen plans to use the remainder of the proceeds to support the business plan for its products. The royalty rights are secured by the cash and accounts receivable of AxoGen.

Credit Agreement with Wellstat Diagnostics, LLC

In November 2012, PDL loaned to Wellstat Diagnostics, LLC (Wellstat) pursuant to a Credit Agreement (Credit Agreement) $40 million to be used by Wellstat in its development and commercialization of small point of care diagnostic systems that can perform a wide variety of tests targeting the clinical diagnostics market. Of the $40 million borrowed, Wellstat Diagnostics will use approximately $11.6 million to repay an existing credit facility between PDL and the holders of Wellstat's equity interests. Wellstat is required to repay the outstanding principal and a specific target internal rate of return amount to PDL at maturity or upon the occurrence of certain key events such as a sale of Wellstat Diagnostics or substantially all of its assets or if Wellstat Diagnostics misses a specified revenue target for fiscal year 2017.  The loan will be considered repaid at any time the aggregate amount of all payments made by Wellstat to PDL, including interest and any royalty payments, equals specified target internal rates of return set forth in the Credit Agreement.  The target internal rates of return depend on whether the date of repayment is on or after December 31, 2014, and is higher after December 31, 2014. Outstanding principal under the Credit Agreement bears interest at the rate of 5.0% per annum, payable quarterly in arrears, in cash or paid-in-kind notes that add to the principal balance.  Upon commercialization of Wellstat's diagnostic systems, PDL will receive a low double digit royalty on Wellstat Diagnostics' net revenues. The Credit Agreement matures at its latest on December 31, 2021.

2012 Dividends

On January 18, 2012, PDL's Board of Directors declared regular quarterly dividends of $0.15 per share of common stock, payable on March 14, June 14, September 14 and December 14 of 2012 to stockholders of record on March 7, June 7, September 7 and December 7 of 2012, the record dates for each of the dividend payments, respectively. On September 14, 2012, PDL paid the third quarterly dividend to stockholders of record totaling $21 million using earnings generated in the third quarter of 2012.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
