DUBLIN, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Commercial execution, efficiency improvements, and debt pay-down remain top priorities

 

Shire plc (Shire) (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPG) announces unaudited results for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Flemming Ornskov, M.D., M.P.H., Shire Chief Executive Officer, commented: 

"In

the first quarter we delivered strong top-line growth with quarterly product sales of $3.4 billion. I am especially pleased to see that our sales growth came from across our broad portfolio, with genetic diseases growing 14%, our recently launched XIIDRA product achieving a 22% market share and the Baxalta business growing at 8% on a pro forma basis. We also improved our operational efficiency, and are ahead of plan on integrating Baxalta.

"Our priorities for the rest of 2017 remain unchanged: launching new products while driving commercial excellence, generating operational efficiencies, and advancing our pipeline of novel therapies. Additionally, we continue to prioritize paying down debt, and we are on track to achieve our full-year financial guidance.

"Looking ahead, I see tremendous opportunity for further growth as we continue to build on our position as the global leader in treating patients with rare diseases."

  • Achieved combined pro forma sales growth of 9%; legacy Shire sales growth of 11% and legacy Baxalta pro forma sales growth of 8%.
  • Generated Non GAAP earnings per ADS of $3.63, reflecting strong business fundamentals and operational discipline.
  • Ahead of schedule with Baxalta integration and on-track to achieve at least $700 million in synergies by year 3.
  • Debt pay-down continued during the quarter and we remain on-track to achieve our year end debt target.

Product and Pipeline Highlights 

  • Continued to drive expansion of the U.S. dry eye disease market, with XIIDRA increasing its market share to 22% as of March 2017.
  • Increased CINRYZE sales by 38% to $226 million, reflecting higher patient demand and improvements in available supply.
  • Increasing demand for our Immunology products, with pro forma sales growth for immunoglobulin therapies and bio therapeutics of 10% and 19% respectively.
  • Expect U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decision for SHP465 in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) on or before June 20, 2017.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY - FIRST QUARTER 2017 COMPARED TO FIRST QUARTER 2016 

Revenues 

  • Product sales increased 110% to $3,412 million (Q1 2016: $1,627 million), primarily due to including $1,605 million of legacy Baxalta sales.
  • Product sales excluding legacy Baxalta increased 11% primarily due to growth from our Genetic Diseases and Internal Medicine franchises, up 14% and 9%, respectively, as well as sales from our Ophthalmology franchise of $39 million.
  • Royalties and other revenues increased 95% to $160 million, as Q1 2017 benefited from additional revenue acquired with Baxalta, primarily related to contract manufacturing activities.

Operating results 

  • Operating income decreased 9% to $497 million (Q1 2016: $544 million), primarily due to the impact of acquisition accounting, including higher expense related to the unwind of inventory fair value adjustments and amortization of acquired intangible assets, partially offset by the inclusion of Baxalta operating income and higher revenue from legacy Shire products.
  • Non GAAP operating income increased 82% to $1,454 million (2016: $797 million), primarily due to including Baxalta's operating income and higher revenue from legacy Shire products.
  • Non GAAP EBITDA margin as a percentage of total revenues decreased to 44% (Q1 2016: 49%), primarily due to the impact of lower margin product franchises acquired with Baxalta as well as XIIDRA marketing costs.

Earnings per share (EPS) 

  • Diluted earnings per American Depositary Shares (ADS) decreased 42% to $1.23 (Q1 2016: $2.12). The decrease was primarily due to lower operating income resulting from the impact of acquisition accounting, combined with the impact of additional shares issued as consideration for the Baxalta transaction.
  • Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS increased 14% to $3.63 (Q1 2016: $3.19), as higher Non GAAP operating income more than offset the impact of additional shares issued as consideration for the Baxalta transaction.

Cash flows 

  • Net cash provided by operating activities increased 18% to $459 million (Q1 2016: $390 million), primarily due to strong cash receipts from higher sales, partially offset by a payment of $346 million associated with the settlement of the DERMAGRAFT litigation.
  • Non GAAP free cash flow, decreased 27% to $247 million (Q1 2016: $338 million), as the growth in net cash provided by operating activities noted above, was more than offset by an increase of $161 million in capital expenditures, primarily related to our continued investment in manufacturing operations.

Debt 

  • Non GAAP net debt at March 31, 2017 decreased $263 million since December 31, 2016, to $22,176 million (December 31, 2016: $22,439 million). The decrease was primarily due to a $423 million net repayment of debt being partially offset by a lower cash balance. Non GAAP net debt represents aggregate long and short term borrowings of $22,193 million, and other debt, primarily capital leases, of $352 million, partially offset by cash and cash equivalents of $369 million.

OUTLOOK 

We are reiterating our full year 2017 guidance and are expecting another strong year for Shire, building on our excellent financial performance in 2016.

In addition to the guidance in the table below, we expect depreciation expense to be $400 - $450 million and capital expenditure to be approximately $1 billion in 2017 reflecting our larger footprint and important investments to support our growth aspirations.

The Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS forecast assumes a weighted average number of 914 million fully diluted ordinary shares outstanding for 2017.

Our US GAAP diluted earnings per ADS outlook reflects anticipated amortization, integration and reorganization costs.

Hematology 

Hematology, acquired with Baxalta in June 2016, reported product sales of $871 million. Hematology includes sales of recombinant and plasma-derived hemophilia products (primarily factor VIII and factor IX) and inhibitor therapies. Pro forma Q1 2017 growth in Hematology was approximately 4%, with strong inhibitor therapies growth of 12%. Q1 2017 results for both the hemophilia and inhibitor therapies benefited from the timing of large orders in our international markets.

Genetic Diseases 

Genetic Diseases product sales increased 14% with growth primarily driven by CINRYZE and, to a lesser extent, ELAPRASE.

CINRYZE sales increased by 38% due to an increase in the number of patients on therapy and the impact of U.S. stocking following supply improvements. ELAPRASE sales increased by 14% due to an increase in the number of patients on therapy and the timing of large orders in our international markets.

Immunology 

Immunology, acquired with Baxalta in June 2016, reported product sales of $676 million. Immunology includes sales of antibody-replacement immunoglobulin and bio therapeutics therapies. Pro forma Q1 2017 growth in Immunology was approximately 12% as the franchise benefited from increased demand and the timing of large orders in our international markets.

Neuroscience 

Neuroscience product sales increased 4% with growth primarily driven by VYVANSE.

VYVANSE sales increased 11% due to year-over-year prescription growth in the U.S., the benefit of a price increase taken since Q1 2016 and growth in our international markets.

ADDERALL XR sales decreased 34% primarily due to the impact of additional generic competition since August 2016 and destocking in Q1 2017 compared with stocking in Q1 2016.

Internal Medicine 

Internal Medicine product sales increased 9%, with strong growth from GATTEX/REVESTIVE and NATPARA.

GATTEX/REVESTIVE and NATPARA continued to perform well with sales increasing 33% and 90%, respectively, primarily due to an increase in the numbers of patients on therapy.

Oncology 

Oncology, acquired with Baxalta in June 2016, reported sales of $58 million. Oncology includes sales of ONCASPAR and ONIVYDE, the latter of which was approved in the EU on October 18, 2016.

Ophthalmology 

Ophthalmology product sales relate to XIIDRA, which was made available to patients on August 29, 2016. XIIDRA contributed $39 million of product sales, and achieved a U.S. market share of 22% as of March 2017.

(1) Reported SG&A for 2016 has been recast to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, which is now presented as a separate line item in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations.

SG&A increased by $414 million, or 87%, primarily due to the inclusion of Baxalta related costs and XIIDRA marketing costs.

Non GAAP SG&A increased by $416 million, or 95%. Non GAAP SG&A as a percentage of total revenues decreased 2 percentage points.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets 

Shire recorded amortization of acquired intangible assets of $364 million (Q1 2016: $135 million). The increase is primarily related to amortization on the intangible assets acquired with the Baxalta transaction.

Integration and acquisition costs 

In Q1 2017, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $116 million, primarily related to the integration of Baxalta. These costs include employee severance and acceleration of stock compensation, third-party professional fees and expenses associated with facility consolidations.

In Q1 2016, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $91 million, primarily related to the integration and acquisition of Dyax, and costs associated with the proposed acquisition of Baxalta. These costs include legal, investment banking and other transaction-related fees, as well as integration costs related to employee severance and acceleration of stock compensation, and third-party professional fees.

Other expense, net increased by $83 million, primarily due to higher interest expense incurred on borrowings used to fund the acquisitions of Dyax and Baxalta.

Non GAAP Other expense, net increased by $105 million, primarily due to higher interest expense as noted above.

Taxation

    Tax effect of adjustments          210.9                         54.5
    Non GAAP Income tax expense      $ 217.7           16%        $ 136.6           18%

The effective tax rate on US GAAP income in Q1 2017 was 2% (Q1 2016: 17%) and on a Non GAAP basis was 16% (Q1 2016: 18%).

The effective tax rate in Q1 2017 on US GAAP income from continuing operations is low primarily due to the combined impact of the relative quantum of the profit before tax for the period by jurisdiction with significant integration costs incurred in higher tax territories. Additionally, discrete events in Q1 2017, including the tax benefit from employee exercises of stock compensation, which is now required to be recorded as a discrete item in the quarter in which it occurs, contributed to the low rate.

The Q1 2017 Non GAAP rate is lower than the same period in 2016, primarily due to changes in the mix of jurisdictional profitability related to the Baxalta acquisition.

Discontinued operations 

The gain from discontinued operations in Q1 2017 was $20 million, net of taxes of $12 million, primarily due to the return of funds previously held in escrow related to the acquisition of the DERMAGRAFT business. The gain in Q1 2016 was $10 million, net of taxes of $5 million, primarily related to the reimbursement of legal costs associated with the divested DERMAGRAFT business.

THE "SAFE HARBOR" STATEMENT UNDER THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995 

Statements included herein that are not historical facts, including without limitation statements concerning future strategy, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions, the anticipated timing of clinical trials and approvals for, and the commercial potential of, inline or pipeline products, are forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties and are subject to change at any time. In the event such risks or uncertainties materialize, Shire's results could be materially adversely affected. The risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Shire's products may not be a commercial success;
  • increased pricing pressures and limits on patient access as a result of governmental regulations and market developments may affect Shire's future revenues, financial condition and results of operations;
  • Shire conducts its own manufacturing operations for certain of its products and is reliant on third party contract manufacturers to manufacture other products and to provide goods and services. Some of Shire's products or ingredients are only available from a single approved source for manufacture. Any disruption to the supply chain for any of Shire's products may result in Shire being unable to continue marketing or developing a product or may result in Shire being unable to do so on a commercially viable basis for some period of time;
  • the manufacture of Shire's products is subject to extensive oversight by various regulatory agencies. Regulatory approvals or interventions associated with changes to manufacturing sites, ingredients or manufacturing processes could lead to, among other things, significant delays, an increase in operating costs, lost product sales, an interruption of research activities or the delay of new product launches;
  • certain of Shire's therapies involve lengthy and complex processes, which may prevent Shire from timely responding to market forces and effectively managing its production capacity;
  • Shire has a portfolio of products in various stages of research and development. The successful development of these products is highly uncertain and requires significant expenditures and time, and there is no guarantee that these products will receive regulatory approval;
  • the actions of certain customers could affect Shire's ability to sell or market products profitably. Fluctuations in buying or distribution patterns by such customers can adversely affect Shire's revenues, financial conditions or results of operations;
  • Shire's products and product candidates face substantial competition in the product markets in which it operates, including competition from generics;
  • adverse outcomes in legal matters, tax audits and other disputes, including Shire's ability to enforce and defend patents and other intellectual property rights required for its business, could have a material adverse effect on the Company's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;
  • inability to successfully compete for highly qualified personnel from other companies and organizations;
  • failure to achieve the strategic objectives, including expected operating efficiencies, cost savings, revenue enhancements, synergies or other benefits at the time anticipated or at all with respect to Shire's acquisitions, including NPS Pharmaceuticals Inc., Dyax Corp. or Baxalta Incorporated may adversely affect Shire's financial condition and results of operations;
  • Shire's growth strategy depends in part upon its ability to expand its product portfolio through external collaborations, which, if unsuccessful, may adversely affect the development and sale of its products;
  • a slowdown of global economic growth, or economic instability of countries in which Shire does business, as well as changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates, that adversely impact the availability and cost of credit and customer purchasing and payment patterns, including the collectability of customer accounts receivable;
  • failure of a marketed product to work effectively or if such a product is the cause of adverse side effects could result in damage to Shire's reputation, the withdrawal of the product and legal action against Shire;
  • investigations or enforcement action by regulatory authorities or law enforcement agencies relating to Shire's activities in the highly regulated markets in which it operates may result in significant legal costs and the payment of substantial compensation or fines;
  • Shire is dependent on information technology and its systems and infrastructure face certain risks, including from service disruptions, the loss of sensitive or confidential information, cyber-attacks and other security breaches or data leakages that could have a material adverse effect on Shire's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;
  • Shire incurred substantial additional indebtedness to finance the Baxalta acquisition, which may decrease its business flexibility and increase borrowing costs; and

a further list and description of risks, uncertainties and other matters can be found in Shire's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in Shire's subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, in each case including those risks outlined in "ITEM 1A: Risk Factors", and in subsequent reports on Form 8-K and other Securities and Exchange Commission filings, all of which are available on Shire's website.

All forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Except to the extent otherwise required by applicable law, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NON GAAP MEASURES 

This press release contains financial measures not prepared in accordance with US GAAP. These measures are referred to as "Non GAAP" measures and include: Non GAAP operating income; Non GAAP net income; Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS; effective tax rate on Non GAAP income before income taxes and (losses/earnings) of equity method investees (effective tax rate on Non GAAP income); Non GAAP CER; Non GAAP cost of sales; Non GAAP gross margin; Non GAAP R&D; Non GAAP SG&A; Non GAAP other expense; Non GAAP free cash flow, Non GAAP net debt, Non GAAP EBITDA and Non GAAP EBITDA margin.

The Non GAAP measures exclude the impact of certain specified items that are highly variable, difficult to predict, and of a size that may substantially impact Shire's operations. Upfront and milestone payments related to in-licensing and acquired products that have been expensed as R&D are also excluded as specified items as they are generally uncertain and often result in a different payment and expense recognition pattern than ongoing internal R&D activities. Intangible asset amortization has been excluded from certain measures to facilitate an evaluation of current and past operating performance, particularly in terms of cash returns, and is similar to how management internally assesses performance. The Non GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release as Shire's management believes that they will provide investors with an additional analysis of Shire's results of operations, particularly in evaluating performance from one period to another.

Shire's management uses Non GAAP financial measures to make operating decisions as they facilitate additional internal comparisons of Shire's performance to historical results and to competitor's results, and provides them to investors as a supplement to Shire's reported results to provide additional insight into Shire's operating performance. Shire's Remuneration Committee uses certain key Non GAAP measures when assessing the performance and compensation of employees, including Shire's executive directors.

The Non GAAP financial measures used by Shire may be calculated different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies - refer to the section "Non GAAP Financial Measure Descriptions" below for additional information. In addition, these Non GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with US GAAP, and Shire's financial results calculated in accordance with US GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Non GAAP Financial Measure Descriptions 

Where applicable the following items, including their tax effect, have been excluded when calculating Non GAAP earnings and from our Non GAAP outlook:

Amortization and asset impairments: 

  • Intangible asset amortization and impairment charges; and
  • Other than temporary impairment of investments.

Acquisitions and integration activities: 

  • Up-front payments and milestones in respect of in-licensed and acquired products;
  • Costs associated with acquisitions, including transaction costs, fair value adjustments on contingent consideration and acquired inventory;
  • Costs associated with the integration of companies; and
  • Noncontrolling interests in consolidated variable interest entities.

Divestments, reorganizations and discontinued operations: 

  • Gains and losses on the sale of non-core assets;
  • Costs associated with restructuring and reorganization activities;
  • Termination costs; and
  • Income/(losses) from discontinued operations.

Legal and litigation costs: 

  • Net legal costs related to the settlement of litigation, government investigations and other disputes (excluding internal legal team costs).

Additionally, in any given period Shire may have significant, unusual or non-recurring gains or losses which it may exclude from its Non GAAP earnings for that period. When applicable, these items would be fully disclosed and incorporated into the required reconciliations from US GAAP to Non GAAP measures.

Depreciation, which is included in Cost of sales, R&D and SG&A costs in our US GAAP results, has been separately disclosed for presentational purposes.

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities, excluding up-front and milestone payments for in-licensed and acquired products, but including capital expenditure in the ordinary course of business.

Non GAAP net debt represents cash and cash equivalents less short and long term borrowings, capital leases and other debt.

A reconciliation of Non GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measure under US GAAP is presented on pages 19 to 21.

Non GAAP CER growth is computed by restating 2017 results using average 2016 foreign exchange rates for the relevant period.

Average exchange rates used by Shire for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $1.24:£1.00 and $1.06:€1.00 (2016: $1.43:£1.00 and $1.09:€1.00).
