VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Angiotech") announced that it released its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Angiotech will host a conference call discussing its first quarter financial results on November 15, 2012 at 1:00 PM ET (10:00 AM PT). Details regarding the conference call can be found on Angiotech's website at www.angiotech.com.
"Our business performance in the third quarter continued to reflect exceptional efforts by our staff to turn our business around in 2012 and move it forward on a renewed path," said Thomas Bailey, President and CEO of Angiotech. "Consistent with the first half of the year, we were able to continue our revenue growth, and our gross margins and profitability continued to show improvement in the quarter, with our various operational initiatives delivering material bottom line results."
Selected recent developments and highlights include:
Refinancing of $225 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes. In July 2012, Angiotech launched an offer to exchange up to a maximum of
$225 million in aggregate principal amount of its $325 million
outstanding Senior Floating Rates Notes due on December 1, 2013 for new
9% Senior Notes due December 1, 2016. On August 13, 2012, the maximum
$225 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes were irrevocably
extinguished and exchanged, on a pro rata basis, for $229.4 million of
new 9% Senior Notes. This refinancing transaction, which was
significantly oversubscribed, substantially remediates our near term
refinancing risk due to the three-year extension of the maturity date
for the New Notes. In addition, by re-domiciling the New Notes in the
U.S., the after-tax cash cost of the New Notes is expected to be
substantially similar to the Existing Notes.
Redemption of $40 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes. On September 17, 2012, pursuant to a Notice of Partial Redemption Option, Angiotech exercised its option to call for the partial redemption of $40
million in aggregate principal amount of its $100 million of
outstanding Senior Floating Rate Notes. These Existing Notes were
redeemed on October 17, 2012 at 100% of the principal amount, together
with accrued interest of $0.2 million. Pro forma for this partial
redemption, Angiotech reduced its total long-term debt to $289.4
million, and total long-term debt maturing in 2013 to $60 million.
Angiotech anticipates that it will be able to continue to reduce its
debt or meet its remaining debt obligations at or prior to their
maturity through a combination of cash generated from operations, cash
received from dispositions of assets or other strategic transactions,
or through the pursuit of debt, equity or other similar financing
Revenue. During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, revenue from our Medical
Device Products segment was $52.7 million, representing an increase of
2% as compared to $51.9 million recorded during the same period in
2011. Excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, sales
growth would have been 3%. Sales growth, as adjusted for foreign
currency fluctuations, was more modest in the third quarter as compared
to the first two quarters of 2012, as our third quarter results were
impacted by order patterns within certain of our larger distributors,
as well as certain other less significant factors. Given sales results
observed subsequent to the end of the third quarter, we presently
expect sales growth in our Medical Device Products segment in the
fourth quarter of 2012 consistent with the growth observed in the first
two periods of the year. Improved sales growth in our Medical Device
Products segment is primarily the result of the following factors: (i)
improved commercial and operational focus on our most significant and
competitive product lines; (ii) continued growth of our proprietary
Quill™ product line; and (iii) stabilization and growth of our medical
device component manufacturing business, with growth observed in both
existing and new medical device component customers.
Adjusted EBITDA. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we reported Adjusted
EBITDA of $16.3 million, which represents a 31.5% increase over
Adjusted EBITDA of $12.4 million reported during the same period in
2011. Adjusted EBITDA associated with our Medical Device Products
segment was $13.5 million during the three months ended September 30,
2012, representing a 104.5% increase as compared to $6.6 million
recorded in the same period in 2011.
Operating Cash Flow and Liquidity. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, we reported positive
cash flows from operations of $3.7 million. As at September 30, 2012,
our cash and cash equivalents and short term investments totaled $60.3
million, and our available borrowing capacity under our revolving
credit facility was $23.7 million, providing for total liquidity of
$84.0 million. We expect further improvements in our liquidity and
capital resources in upcoming quarters, due to the improved
profitability and cash flow of our business as compared to prior
periods. In addition, in October 2012 we received an additional $22
million milestone payment from Ethicon, Inc. ("Ethicon") relating to
our transaction with Ethicon as announced in April 2012, due to the
successful completion of certain product development activities. This
payment comprises the receipt of the second of the three milestone
payments contemplated in the agreements with Ethicon. The final
remaining payment of $15 million is expected to be received in
mid-2013, should we successfully conclude the remaining product
development activities as contemplated in the transaction agreements.
Net Debt Reduction and Credit Statistics. As at September 30, 2012, we had no borrowings outstanding under our
revolving credit facility. Our ratio of Net Debt to last 12 months
Adjusted EBITDA decreased from 6.1 as at December 31, 2011 to 3.9 as at
September 30 2012. Furthermore, based on annualizing our nine months
ended September 30, 2012 Adjusted EBITDA results; and including the
impact of the $40 million redemption of Floating Rate Notes and the $22
million milestone payment received from Ethicon in October 2012, our
ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA would be 3.4.
Business Strategy and Cost Realignment. During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, we implemented various
initiatives to better align our expense levels with our business model
and capital structure. Through these changes, we achieved cost savings
of $3.2 million (70% decrease) and $7.3 million (56% decrease) in our
research and development expenses during the three and nine months
ended September 30, 2012, respectively, as compared to the same periods
in 2011. Similarly, we achieved cost savings of $6.6 million (29%
decrease) and $8.8 million (15% decrease) in our selling, general and
administrative expenses during the three and nine months ended
September 30, 2012, respectively, as compared to the same periods in
2011. We expect to pursue additional projects that may improve our
business profitability and cost structure in future periods. Most
significantly, in May 2012 we announced plans to conclude manufacturing
activities at our facility in Denmark, and to move operations to
selected other, lower cost locations in the U.S. to ensure certain of
our interventional oncology product lines can remain competitive. This
project is currently in process, and we expect to conclude such
activities in early 2013, subsequent to which we expect to begin
realizing reductions in production costs, in particular for our Skater™
drainage catheter product line, which is one of our largest single
- Transaction with Ethicon, Inc. for proprietary Quill technology. As previously announced on April 4, 2012, we and certain of our subsidiaries recently entered into agreements with Ethicon, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, Inc., which concluded the sale of certain intellectual property to Ethicon related to our proprietary Quill technology. We also entered into a Manufacturing and Supply Agreement ("MSA"), pursuant to which we will exclusively manufacture knotless wound closure products that utilize the Quill technology for Ethicon for an undisclosed term. Under the terms of this arrangement, Ethicon has granted us a worldwide, royalty free license to all Quill intellectual property they acquired, thereby enabling us to continue manufacturing, marketing and selling Quill in any manner or market of our choice. The following consideration has been received to date from Ethicon: $20 million was received in April 2012 related to the acquisition of certain Quill related intellectual property, $5.0 million was received in August 2012 related to the transfer of certain product know-how to Ethicon, and in October 2012 we received $22 million related to the achievement of certain product development milestones associated with the development of an initial set of product codes.
This press release contains financial data derived from the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the three months ended September 30, 2011, the five months ended September 30, 2011 and the four months ended April 30, 2011. This press release should, therefore, be read in conjunction with our full unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, which were filed on Form 10-Q on November 14, 2012 with the United States (U.S.) Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and posted on the Investor section of our website at www.angiotech.com.
Amounts, unless specified otherwise, are expressed in U.S. dollars. Financial results are reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
Certain financial measures in this press release are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). In addition, we have presented adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), which is a non-GAAP financial metric that excludes certain non-cash and non-recurring items. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to establish operational goals, and believes that this metric may assist investors in evaluating the results of our business and analyzing the underlying trends over time. In addition, our creditors may monitor this metric to measure compliance with certain financial covenants in our lending agreements, or assess the operating and cash flow performance of our business. Investors should consider our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to our GAAP-based net income or loss has been included in the appendix to this press release. We have also included explanations about our use of Adjusted EBITDA and a detailed description of the adjustments made.
Fresh Start Accounting
On May 12, 2011 we implemented a recapitalization transaction which, among other things, eliminated our $250 million 7.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due in 2014 and $16 million of related interest obligations in exchange for new common shares in Angiotech (the "Recapitalization Transaction"). In connection with this Recapitalization Transaction, we were required to adopt fresh start accounting in accordance with ASC # 852—Reorganization on April 30, 2011 (the "Convenience Date"). The adoption of fresh start accounting resulted in a new entity for financial reporting purposes. Angiotech is therefore referred to as the "Predecessor Company" for all periods preceding the Convenience Date and the "Successor Company" for all periods subsequent to the Convenience Date. However, we believe that the comparison of results from the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 still provides the best comparison and analysis of our operating results.
Upon implementation of fresh start accounting, the estimated reorganization value was allocated to our assets based on their estimated fair values; the deficit, additional paid-in-capital and other comprehensive income balances were eliminated; and debt and equity balances were revalued at their estimated fair values. Our estimated reorganization value was determined in collaboration with an independent financial advisor specifically for the purposes of fresh start accounting. As our estimated reorganization value is inherently subject to significant uncertainties, there is no assurance that the estimates and assumptions used in these valuations will be realized and actual results may differ materially. After the estimated reorganization value was assigned to tangible assets and identifiable intangible assets, the excess of the estimated reorganization value over and above the identifiable net asset values was recorded as goodwill.
For further discussion of fresh start accounting and its impact on historical operating results, please refer to our audited consolidated financial statements and Management, Discussion and Analysis for the eight months ended December 31, 2011 filed on Form 10-K with the SEC on March 29, 2012.

Appendix A: Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Information
The financial results presented in this press release include Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure.
Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain non-cash, non-recurring and non-operating items, which may be unpredictable, volatile and not directly correlated to our operating performance. We believe exclusion of these items from our GAAP-based net loss may provide the following advantages: (i) improved understanding of trends underlying our business and performance; (ii) improved consistency across periods when measuring and assessing our operating performance; (iii) improved understanding of the cash flow and cash earnings generated by our business in a given period and as compared to prior periods; and (iv) improved comparability of our operating results to those of similar companies in our industry.
Examples of these non-cash, non-recurring and non-operating items may include: integration and restructuring expenses, reorganization adjustments, retrospective adjustments driven by accounting policy changes, financing charges, asset write-downs, impairment charges, foreign exchange fluctuations, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related amortization charges and certain extraordinary litigation expenses. A detailed discussion of the excluded items is provided below (see "Description of Adjustments").
Investors are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental metric and should not be viewed as a substitute for, or superior to, financial results and measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We have prepared a reconciliation of our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to our GAAP-based net income (loss) included in this Appendix. Management compensates for certain material limitations that may be applicable to our use of Adjusted EBITDA by reviewing our operating results that have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management uses Adjusted EBITDA when setting corporate and operational goals, and evaluating operating performance in connection with:
- Presenting, comparing and assessing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors.
- Evaluating, managing and benchmarking our operating performance.
- Analyzing underlying trends in our business.
- Evaluating market position and performance relative to our competitors, many of which use the same or similar performance metrics.
- Establishing internal operating budgets and goals.
- Determining compensation under bonus or other incentive programs.
- Enhancing comparability from period to period.
- Assessing compliance with credit facility covenants.
- Providing vital information in assessing cash flows to service our significant debt obligations.
- Comparing performance with internal forecasts and targeted business models.
- Evaluating and valuing potential acquisition candidates.
The adjustments used to compute our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA are consistent with those excluded from operating results that may be used by our chief operating decision maker to make operating decisions and assess performance. We have provided this information to enable investors to analyze our operating results in the same way that management may use this information to assess our business relative to other periods, our business objectives and similar companies in our industry.

"Description of Adjustments" section below.
Description of Adjustments
The following provides an explanation of each of the items that management has adjusted to derive its non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
(a) Non-Recurring Revenue and Other Revenue Adjustments
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 exclude certain non-recurring and non-operating license revenue that is reported as part of our GAAP-based revenue.
We generally record royalty revenue from Boston Scientific ("BSC") on a cash basis due to the difficulty and unpredictability of estimating BSC's royalty before the reports and payments are received by the Company. This results in a lag of approximately one quarter between the times that the revenues are reported by BSC and subsequently received and recognized by us. Given that the application of fresh start accounting effectively resulted in a new reporting entity, we estimated that BSC royalties of approximately $1.3 million were earned during the month of April 2011 for the purposes of fresh start accounting. This amount was received in August 2011. Given that management monitors and records royalty revenues from BSC on a cash basis, in accordance with our accounting policy, we added back this accrual-based revenue adjustment for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
(b) Non-Recurring Restructuring-Related Charges
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain expenses or recoveries related to corporate reorganization or plant restructuring activities that we have pursued or are pursuing. These amounts, which are added back or deducted from our GAAP-based net income (loss) as appropriate, primarily represent severance costs; asset write-offs; contract renegotiation or termination fees; and other expenses associated with plant closures, transfers of production lines from one facility to another and plant headcount optimization initiatives that are not reasonably expected to recur in the future.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2012 excludes $0.7 million of costs which are primarily associated with restructuring initiatives being conducted at our Denmark manufacturing facility.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011 excludes the following restructuring charges: $1.4 million of cash severance costs paid to two executive officers that were terminated effective July 12, 2011; $0.4 million of general consulting costs related to the exploration of certain strategic and financial alternatives; $0.3 million of costs associated with the transfer of certain production activities for our Quill device from our Reading, Pennsylvania facility to our Puerto Rico facility; and $0.2 million of severance costs related to headcount reductions and residual reorganization costs from the 2008 closure of our Syracuse, New York manufacturing facility.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes the following restructuring charges: a $1.0 million fee paid to Biopsy Sciences, LLC to eliminate all future financial obligations owing under the original January 22, 2007 Asset Purchase and Assignment Agreement and Amended and Restated License Agreement; $1.0 million of non-recurring compensation and severance costs related to retention initiatives and headcount reductions in our research and development, sales and marketing and finance departments; $0.9 million of charges related to the restructuring of our Vancouver head-office; $0.8 million of costs associated with restructuring initiatives being conducted at our Denmark manufacturing facility; and a $0.4 million rent adjustment relating to current restructuring initiatives we are pursuing at one of our sales offices.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 excludes the following restructuring charges: $1.1 million of costs associated with the transfer of certain production activities for our Quill device as described above; $1.4 million of cash severance costs paid to two executive officers; $0.4 million of severance costs related to headcount reductions and residual reorganization costs from the 2008 closure of our Syracuse, New York manufacturing facility ; $0.1 million of severance costs related to headcount reductions in our research and development department; a $1.0 million non-cash recovery on our rent expense resulting from the acceleration of amortization of certain leasehold inducements received in prior years associated with the reduction of leased space at one of our facilities; a $0.6 million recovery on a lease obligation previously recorded for a property lease that has since been terminated; and $0.6 million of exit costs related to our decision to downsize and terminate our rentable space at two manufacturing facilities.
(c) Reorganization Items and Other Non-Recurring Transaction Fees
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain extraordinary and non-recurring costs related to significant corporate transactions. These amounts are adjusted from our GAAP-based net (loss) income because they are highly variable and specific to the extent and nature of the transaction being undertaken. As these expenses are not directly correlated to our day-to-day operating performance and are due to transaction or related financing decisions made by us that are infrequent or volatile in nature and specific to the situation at that time, inclusion of these charges in our financial results makes it more difficult to compare our performance to that of prior periods or similar companies in our industry, or to assess the cash flow generation of our operations.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2012 excludes $0.2 million of non-recurring professional fees related to the exploration of certain strategic and financial alternatives.
For the three months ended September 30, 2011, we did not incur any reorganization items or other non-recurring transaction fees for the purposes of adjusting and calculating our Adjusted EBITDA.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes $1.6 million of non-recurring transaction fees and expenses incurred in connection with the completion of the transaction with Ethicon as described above and $0.2 million of other non-recurring professional fees associated with the exploration of certain strategic and financial alternatives.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months September 30, 2011 excludes net reorganization gains, fees and expenses of $321.1 million related to our Recapitalization Transaction. The $321.1 million of reorganization gains, fees and expenses consists of: (i) $341.2 million of non-cash gains realized due to fresh start accounting related adjustments; (ii) $17.9 million of professional fees paid to advisors for legal, accounting and other financial consulting services; (iii) $1.6 million of additional insurance costs required to indemnify directors and officers for a period of six years after the completion of the Recapitalization Transaction; (iv) a $0.8 million incentive fee payable under the terms of the Key Incentive Employment Plan ("KEIP"), which is net of a $0.2 million tax recovery; (v) a $1.5 million recovery of prior year royalty fees that resulted from a Settlement and License Termination Agreement negotiated with our partner Rex Medical, LLP as part of the Recapitalization Transaction; and a $1.4 million charge to stock based compensation expense related to the cancellation of the Predecessor Company's existing options and awards in accordance with the terms of the Recapitalization Transaction.
(d) Stock-Based Compensation Expense
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes amounts recorded for stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense is added back to our GAAP-based net income (loss) because it is a non-cash charge required by GAAP, which represents an estimated additional cost associated with the issuance of restricted stock, restricted stock units and stock options to management and employees as part of their compensation. Such compensation expense is a non-cash expense calculated using the Black-Scholes or other similar methodology to derive the expected fair value of awards issued to employees under the Company's stock based compensation plans. Fair value calculations may be highly subjective, because they are dictated by the specific assumptions and inputs used in the model. Key assumptions and inputs may include our estimated stock price on the day the calculation is completed, the historical volatility of the Predecessor Company's stock price, historical volatilities of our industry peer groups, the estimated risk-free rate of return offered by the market and other factors, which are not directly correlated to our day-to-day operating performance and are difficult to determine, predict or forecast. In these respects and others (including the methodology that may be used to calculate such expense), methods and data that may be used to complete the calculation of stock-based compensation expense may vary widely from period to period or from company to company.
Inclusion of stock based compensation in our results makes it difficult to assess our operational cash flows as well as measure and compare our performance to that of similar companies in our industry, our operating goals or our performance in prior periods.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes stock-based compensation expense of $0.7 million and $2.0 million, respectively.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and September 30, 2010 excludes stock-based compensation expense of $3.7 million and $0.4 million, respectively. The $3.7 million adjustment for the three months ended September 30, 2011 includes $1.9 million of stock based compensation expense, associated with the accelerated vesting of Restricted Stock that was provided for under the provisions of employment agreements for two executive officers who were released from Angiotech effective July 12, 2011 and $1.8 million of stock based compensation expense related to Restricted Stock, RSU's and new stock options that were issued to certain employees and directors under the CCAA Plan following the completion of the Recapitalization Transaction
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and September 30, 2010 excludes stock-based compensation expense of $4.1 million and $1.4 million, respectively. The $4.1 million adjustment for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 includes $1.9 million of stock based compensation expense, associated with the accelerated vesting of the Restricted Stock as described above; $1.8 million of stock based compensation expense related to the Restricted Stock, RSU's and new stock options that were issued to certain employees and directors under the CCAA Plan as described above; and $0.4 million of stock based compensation expense related to options and awards issued under the Predecessor Company's 2006 Stock Incentive Plan.
(e) Litigation-Related Charges
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain litigation-related charges, which are incurred in connection with extraordinary litigation matters that are inherently unpredictable, highly variable from period to period, are not reasonably expected to recur in future periods or are not related to the day to day operational activities of our business.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes $0.1 million of litigation related expenses.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 excludes a $0.1 million recovery on previously recorded litigation expenses and a $0.1 million of litigation expenses, respectively.
(f) Non-Recurring Production Charges
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes amounts recorded for certain extraordinary and non-recurring production costs. These amounts are adjusted from our Adjusted EBITDA because they are unplanned, difficult to predict and related to one-time events not expected to recur from period to period.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes a $1.4 million non-recurring, non-cash inventory adjustment related to the reversal of an intercompany profit elimination entry from a prior period. This non-cash adjustment resulted in lower cost of products sold reported on a GAAP basis, represents the realization of profit attributable to a prior period, and is not expected to recur in future periods.
Net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 includes $9.8 million and $22.6 million in additional cost of products sold expense, respectively, related to the revaluation of inventory from $37.5 million to $60.1 million in connection with the Company's implementation of fresh start accounting on April 30, 2011. Given that this is a non-cash, non-recurring charge, we have removed the impact of these fresh start accounting related adjustments for the purposes of calculating our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
(g) Foreign Exchange Gains and Losses
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes amounts recorded for certain foreign exchange gains and losses. These amounts, which are added back to our GAAP-based net income (loss), primarily represent expenses related to differences arising from translating assets held by us in foreign territories and denominated in foreign currencies, into our reporting currency. These foreign currency assets fund our research and development activities in Canada, and are unique to our current operational structure. As they have no bearing on our day-to-day operations, operating decisions or our ability to fund or manage our operations or research and development programs, we exclude them from our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes net foreign exchange losses of $1.0 million for both periods.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 excludes net foreign exchange gains of $1.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively.
(h) Impairment Charges and Unrealized Losses on Investments and Other Long-Lived Assets
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain write-downs of investments or other long-lived assets, for which the carrying values are impaired and unlikely to recover. These amounts are added back to our GAAP-based net income (loss) because they are typically non-recurring, non-operating and non-cash write-downs or expense items, thus making it difficult to compare our operating performance in the period the impairment expense is incurred to our operating performance in other periods, or to the operating performance of similar companies in our industry. Management typically excludes these charges from our operating goals, forecasts, budgets and other non-GAAP financial measures.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2012 excludes $0.1 million of net unrealized gains relating to shares we currently hold in Athersys, Inc.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes: a $0.7 million write-down of leasehold improvements at our Vancouver facility, a $0.2 million write-down of certain manufacturing equipment in connection with the termination of one of our product development projects, a $0.3 million loss realized on the sale of a portion of our shares in Athersys, Inc.; and a $0.1 million unrealized loss on the remaining shares held of Athersys, Inc., which were trading below their carrying value and which management may sell in the near term.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011 excludes a $0.1 million write-down of certain furniture and fixtures resulting from our decision to downsize one of our office facilities. In addition to the above noted non-cash impairment charges, our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 also excludes a $0.6 million write-down of a property based in Vancouver, Canada that was sold in May 2011 and a $0.2 million write-down of certain leasehold improvements at a manufacturing facility that was downsized in early 2011.
(i) Non-Recurring Gains, Losses and Other Income
Our Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain extraordinary and non-recurring gains and losses. These amounts are adjusted from our GAAP-based metrics because they are unplanned, difficult to predict and related to one-time events not expected to recur from period to period.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2012 excludes: (i) a $4.5 million debt extinguishment loss related to our refinancing of $225.0 million of our existing Floating Rate Notes in exchange for the $229.5 million of new Senior Notes which bear interest at 9% per annum and mature on December 1, 2016 (refer to the Refinancing of $225 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes section above for more information); and (ii) $0.2 million of gains related to the disposition of certain property, plant and equipment at our manufacturing facilities.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2011 excludes $0.2 million of gains related to the disposition of certain property, plant and equipment at our manufacturing facilities.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 excludes: (i) the $4.5 million debt extinguishment loss discussed above, (ii) $0.6 million of gains related to the sale of certain lab equipment associated the shutdown of our research and development facility at our Vancouver headquarters, (iii) $0.2 million of gains related to the sale of certain manufacturing equipment associated with the Quill related transaction discussed above, and (iv) $0.2 of gains related to the disposition of certain property, plant and equipment at our manufacturing facilities.
Our Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 excludes: (i) a $67.3 million gain related to the settlement and extinguishment of our $250 million Subordinated Notes, $16 million of related interest obligations and $4.1 million of certain other liabilities that were subject to compromise as part of the Recapitalization Transaction, and (ii) $0.4 million of gains related to the disposition of certain property, plant and equipment at our manufacturing facilities.
While we believe our measure of Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial metric for the reasons stated above, there may be certain inherent limitations in this non-GAAP metric, including but not limited to:
- Exclusion of amortization and depreciation expense from our Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the need for future capital spending, whether this is to support growth or to replace assets which are subject to wear and tear.
- Exclusion of write-downs, amortization and depreciation from our Adjusted EBITDA does not take into consideration the potential tax impacts or obligations which can materialize into actual future cash flows.
- As we use our own approach for calculating our Adjusted EBITDA, other companies may not make the same adjustments or disclose their financial data in a manner that would allow comparison of their results to our adjusted results, thus decreasing comparability of our adjusted financial measures as comparative analytical tools.
- Non-GAAP based adjustments may not take into account the full economic cost of running our business. For example, financing costs are required to raise capital, which is used to fund operations. Adjusted financial measures do not necessarily reflect these considerations.
As noted above, our Adjusted EBITDA is not a substitute for our GAAP-derived financial measures and statements. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to supplement our GAAP disclosures and help investors and lenders gain a better understanding of our operating performance. It also provides investors, lenders, and our Board of Directors with access to the same data used by management to assess our operating performance. Management compensates for the foregoing limitations by ensuring that our GAAP disclosures are transparent and sufficient to provide readers with the information required to reconcile financial results and form unbiased conclusions.
