ROCKVILLE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2012-- Emergent BioSolutions Inc. announced today its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Total revenues for Q3 and the first nine months of 2012 were $66.6 million and $187.3 million, respectively. Net income for Q3 2012 was $6.6 million, or $0.18 per basic share. Net income for the first nine months of 2012 was $7.4 million or $0.21 per basic share. The year-to-date 2012 net income included a one-time, non-cash charge of $9.6 million related to impairment of in-process research and development associated with the SBI-087 product candidate, which was being developed by Pfizer, related to Pfizer’s termination of its SBI-087 development programs.

The company also reaffirmed its full year 2012 guidance for total revenues of $280 to $300 million and net income of $15 to $25 million.

Q3 Operational Accomplishments

  • Completed manufacture of BioThrax® (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed) consistency lots in Building 55;
  • Secured BARDA contract option to further advance the development of PreviThrax™ (Recombinant Protective Antigen Anthrax Vaccine, Purified); and
  • Completed phase 1b comparative study evaluating TRU-016 in combination with bendamustine and rituximab in relapsed indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, president and chief executive officer of Emergent BioSolutions, said, “We are pleased with our third quarter and year-to-date performance. We are executing against all of our financial and operational goals and are on track to achieve the milestones we set out for the year.”

Financial Results

Product Sales

For Q3 2012, product sales were $54 million, an increase of $10.3 million from Q3 2011. This increase was due to increased doses of BioThrax delivered under our CDC contract.

For the first nine months of 2012, product sales were $141.5 million, an increase from $120.7 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was primarily due to an increase in doses of BioThrax delivered, partially offset by a lower sales price per dose. Product sales revenues for the nine month period of 2012 included BioThrax sales to CDC of $141.1 million.

Contracts and Grants Revenues

For Q3 2012, contracts and grants revenues were $12.6 million, a decrease from $15.1 million from Q3 2011. This decrease was primarily due to decreased activity and associated revenue related to the timing of work performed under the company’s development contracts.

For the nine month period of 2012, contracts and grants revenues were $45.8 million, an increase from $44.7 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was primarily due to increased activity and associated revenue from the company’s development contracts.

Cost of Product Sales

For Q3 2012, cost of product sales was $10.2 million, a decrease from $10.7 million for Q3 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in the cost per BioThrax dose sold.

For the nine month period of 2012, cost of product sales was $30.9 million, an increase from $27.8 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of BioThrax doses delivered.

Research and Development

For Q3 2012, research and development expenses were $27.4 million, a decrease from $29.2 million for Q3 2011. Net of development contracts and grants revenue along with the net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, research and development expenses were $13.8 million for Q3 2012, an increase from $12.4 million for the comparable period in 2011.

For the nine month period of 2012, research and development expenses were $84.3 million, a decrease from $95.5 million in the comparable period of 2011. This decrease primarily reflects lower contract service and personnel-related costs. Net of development contracts and grants revenue along with the net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, research and development expenses for the nine month period of 2012 were $34.3 million, a decrease from $45.6 million for the comparable period in 2011.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q3 2012, selling, general and administrative expenses were $19.2 million, an increase from $17.4 million for Q3 2011. This increase was primarily due to increased personnel and professional services.

For the nine month period of 2012, selling, general and administrative expenses were $56.5 million, an increase from $56 million in the comparable period of 2011.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents combined with investments at September 30, 2012 was $197.9 million, compared to $145.9 million at December 31, 2011. Additionally, at September 30, 2012, the accounts receivable balance was $17.1 million, which is comprised primarily of unpaid amounts due from the US government.

Forecast: Full Year 2012

For full year 2012, the company is reaffirming its forecast of total revenues of $280 to $300 million, split between product sales of $220 to $230 million and contracts and grants revenue of $60 to $70 million. The company also reaffirms its forecast of net income of $15 to $25 million.
