[March 16, 2017]

Patheon Reports Fiscal 2017 First Quarter Results

Patheon N.V. (NYSE: PTHN), a leading global provider of pharmaceutical development and manufacturing services, today reported financial results for the quarter ended January 31, 2017.

First quarter 2017 revenue was $457 million, an increase of 13% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter was $83 million, 40% higher than the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue was 18%, representing a 350 basis point increase compared to the prior-year period.

"We drove growth across all three segments during the first quarter, as we continued to help our clients simplify their supply chain networks," said Patheon CEO Jim Mullen. "The underlying trends supporting our long-term view remain unchanged; however, we are adjusting our full-year outlook to reflect current exchange rates and shifts in the timing of customer volumes and key product approvals."

First quarter 2017 net income from continuing operations was $28 million. First quarter 2017 net income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.19.

First quarter 2017 adjusted net income from continuing operations was $21 million. First quarter 2017 adjusted net income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.14.

First Quarter 2017 Segment Highlights



(in millions) Revenue Y-o-Y Growth Adj. EBITDA Y-o-Y Growth
DPS $275.2 6.5% $61.4 11.4%
PDS $52.3 7.8% $16.3 18.1%
DSS $129.9 31.3% $32.0 116.2%
  • The DPS segment grew by 6% year-over-year due to higher product volumes, partially offset by delays in customer-supplied materials.
  • The PDS segment recorded 8% year-over-year growth, driven by demand for sterile and low-solubility services.
  • The DSS segment delivered 31% year-over-year growth on strength in demand for both biologics and API.
  • Revenue growth and strong margin performance resulted in year-over-year adjusted EBITDA growth in all three segments.
  • The company continued to make investments to support future growth across all three segments.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations before repositioning expenses (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), interest expense, foreign exchange losses reclassified from other comprehensive income (loss), refinancing expenses, acquisition and integration costs (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), gains and losses on sale of capital assets, Biologics earnout income and expense, income taxes, impairment charges, remediation costs, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs related to our operational initiatives, purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related litigation expenses and other income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenues.

We define Adjusted net income as Adjusted EBITDA minus depreciation expense (excluding amortization from intangibles acquired in acquisitions), interest expense (excluding amortization of the deferred financing costs), and tax expense. In addition, we exclude discrete tax items and apply an estimated tax effect on adjustments within the calculation. The estimated tax effect is calculated using statutory tax rates on each expense item, except in the case where a jurisdiction is under a full valuation allowance at the time of the expense, in which we apply a tax rate of 0%. We define Adjusted EPS as Adjusted net income divided by the average number of shares outstanding on a diluted basis for the related period.

Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA as one of several metrics to measure the Company's operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also a component of the performance objectives used to determine the short and long-term incentive portions of executive compensation. We present Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS because we believe they are useful supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of our operations and provide greater transparency into our results. We believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as a supplement to the comparable U.S. GAAP measures in evaluating the performance of our operations provides greater transparency to the information used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making. These non-GAAP financial measures do not have standard meanings, so they may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP financial measures of performance. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure is included with the financial statements in this press release.

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures because it could not do so without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of the information needed to calculate reconciling items and the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the adjusting items that would be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures in future periods. When planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, the Company does so primarily on a non-GAAP basis without preparing a GAAP analysis as that would require estimates for various cash and non-cash reconciling items that would be difficult to predict with reasonable accuracy. For example, equity compensation expense would be difficult to estimate because it depends on the Company's future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of the Company's common stock, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change. It is equally difficult to anticipate the need for or magnitude of a presently unforeseen one-time restructuring expense or the values of end-of-period foreign currency exchange rates. As a result, the Company does not believe that a GAAP reconciliation to forward-looking on-GAAP financial measures would provide meaningful supplemental information about the Company's outlook.
