Shire plc : 2nd Quarter Results

 

Shire Delivers Q2 2018 Product Sales Growth of 6% and Continued Regulatory and Pipeline Progress

 

Product sales grew to $3.8 billion driven by Immunology, recently launched products, and international expansion

 

Innovative pipeline continued to advance with 7 programs in registration and 16 in Phase 3

 

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval received for state-of-the-art plasma manufacturing facility

 

$0.9 billion in net operating cash flow enabled continued debt pay-down

 

July 31, 2018 - Shire plc (Shire) (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPG), the leading global biotech company focused on rare diseases, announces unaudited results for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

 

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

 

"Shire continued to deliver on its key priorities of commercial execution, pipeline advancement, debt pay-down, and portfolio optimization during the second quarter.  We drove product sales growth of 6% over the prior year period led by the strong performance of our Immunology franchise, continued uptake of our recently launched products, and expansion in international markets.

 

"During the quarter, our Board reached an agreement with the Takeda Board on the terms of a recommended offer for Takeda to acquire Shire. The acquisition is expected to close in H1 2019, subject to shareholder approval of both companies and additional regulatory approvals. In the meantime, we remain resolutely focused on execution as these results demonstrate.

 

"We also achieved important regulatory milestones and continued to advance our robust late stage pipeline.  We received U.S. FDA approval for CINRYZE for pediatric use and a positive opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) recommending marketing authorization for VEYVONDI in Europe. In addition, we gained U.S. FDA approval for our state-of-the-art plasma manufacturing facility near Covington, Georgia supporting the continued growth of our immunoglobulin portfolio."

OUTLOOK

 

Our 2018 guidance, which continues to include our Oncology franchise, remains unchanged. Guidance will be updated to remove the Oncology franchise after the close of the sale to Servier S.A.S. (Servier), which is expected in Q3 2018. Similarly, our 2020 guidance remains unchanged and will be updated to remove the Oncology franchise after the close of this pending sale.

 

The Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS forecast assumes a weighted average number of 915 million fully diluted ordinary shares outstanding for 2018.

 

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

 

Risks associated with this outlook include the potential uncertainty resulting from the announcement by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (Takeda) on May 8, 2018 of a recommended offer for Shire under the U.K. Takeover Code.

 

Full Year 2018 U.S. GAAP Outlook Non GAAP Outlook(1)
Total revenue(2) $15.4 - $15.9 billion $15.4 - $15.9 billion
Gross margin as a percentage of total revenue(3) 71.0% - 73.0% 73.5% - 75.5%
Combined R&D and SG&A $5.2 - $5.4 billion $4.9 - $5.1 billion
Net interest/other $450 - $550 million $450 - $550 million
Effective tax rate 15% - 17% 16% - 18%
Diluted earnings per ADS(4) $7.30 - $7.90 $14.90 - $15.50

 

(1) For a list of items excluded from Non GAAP Outlook, refer to pages 27 - 28 of this release.

(2) Management is providing guidance for total revenue. Total revenue is comprised of total product sales and royalties & other revenues. Pursuant to a change in U.S. GAAP related to accounting for revenue, certain revenue formerly classified as royalties are now recorded as product sales.

(3) Gross margin as a percentage of total revenues excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets.

(4) See page 23 for a reconciliation between U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per ADS and Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS.

OVERVIEW OF SECOND QUARTER 2018 FINANCIAL RESULTS COMPARED TO SECOND QUARTER 2017

 

In Q2 2018, we returned to a single segment approach to managing our business. This decision was precipitated by our Board's acceptance of Takeda's offer to acquire Shire and reflects our focus on the performance of the entire business as it operates in this current environment. This step was taken to more closely align with how the financial information is viewed by the Executive Committee (Shire's chief operating decision maker) for the purposes of making resource allocation decisions and assessing the performance of the business. Additionally, in Q2 2018, we introduced a new product franchise called Established Brands to capture revenue for our non-promoted products that are facing or could face generic competition, such as LIALDA and PENTASA.

 

  1. Product sales

 

Product sales increased 6% to $3,809 million (Q2 2017: $3,592 million), driven by Immunology, up 13%, Internal Medicine, up 61%, and Ophthalmics, up 75%, off-setting the impact of generic competition on Established Brands.

(3) Other Established Brands includes FOSRENOL and CARBATROL.

 

Immunology

Immunology product sales were $1,150 million in Q2 2018. Immunoglobulin therapies growth of 20% was primarily driven by increased demand for subcutaneous and intravenous brands, and timing of large orders in international markets. HAE product sales were up 9% driven by stocking for both CINRYZE and FIRAZYR, as well as FIRAZYR demand growth, partially offset by a decline in CINRYZE demand due to a competitor launch. Bio therapeutics sales were unchanged year over year as increased demand was offset by large order phasing in international markets.

 

Hematology

Hematology product sales were $951 million in Q2 2018. Sales of our inhibitor therapies declined 7% due to new competition, while sales of our hemophilia therapies were flat.

 

Neuroscience

Neuroscience product sales were $694 million in Q2 2018. VYVANSE product sales increased 7%, due to a U.S. price increase and continued growth in our international markets.

 

Genetic Diseases

Genetic Diseases product sales increased 6% to $392 million, driven by favorable foreign exchange rates and increased sales for ELAPRASE primarily in our international markets.

 

Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine product sales increased 61% to $233 million, driven by strong demand growth for GATTEX/REVESTIVE and NATPARA/NATPAR, and to a lesser extent, stocking.

 

Established Brands

Established Brands product sales were $219 million, declining 36% due to generic competition for LIALDA/MEZAVANT, which began in the second half of 2017.

 

Ophthalmics

Ophthalmics product sales increased 75% to $100 million due to strong XIIDRA demand growth.

 

Oncology

Oncology product sales increased 14% to $71 million, with growth driven by increased demand for ONIVYDE in international markets.

 

  1. Royalties and other revenues
(in millions)    Revenue   Year on year reported growth
     
         
Royalties   $ 59.7     -47 %
Other revenues   51.2     +25 %
Royalties and other revenues   $ 110.9     -28 %
         

 

Royalties and other revenues decreased 28% primarily due to lower SENSIPAR royalties and the reclassification of ADDERALL XR from royalty revenue to product sales and other changes required under the new revenue accounting standard.

 

  1. Financial details

Cost of sales

(in millions) Q2 2018   Q2 2017
Cost of sales (U.S. GAAP) $ 1,108.3     $ 1,108.9  
Expense related to the unwind of inventory fair value adjustments (5.8 )   (145.0 )
Depreciation (66.1 )   (67.0 )
Non GAAP cost of sales $ 1,036.4     $ 896.9  
U.S. GAAP cost of sales as a percentage of total revenues 28 %   30 %
Non GAAP cost of sales as a percentage of total revenues 26 %   24 %
       

 

Cost of sales as a percentage of total revenues decreased by 2% to 28%, primarily due to lower expense related to the unwind of inventory fair value adjustments.

 

Non GAAP cost of sales as a percentage of total revenues increased 2% to 26%, primarily due to lower gross margins as Q2 2017 reflected favorability from the timing of changes in the costs to manufacture certain products.

 

R&D

(in millions) Q2 2018   Q2 2017
R&D (U.S. GAAP) $ 427.6     $ 542.4  
Impairment of IPR&D intangible assets (10.0 )   (20.0 )
Costs relating to license arrangements -     (123.7 )
Depreciation (9.7 )   (12.8 )
Non GAAP R&D $ 407.9     $ 385.9  
U.S. GAAP R&D as a percentage of total revenues 11 %   14 %
Non GAAP R&D as a percentage of total revenues 10 %   10 %
       

 

R&D decreased by $115 million, or 21%, as Q2 2017 included significant milestone and upfront payments associated with license arrangements that did not recur in Q2 2018. This resulted in a decrease of R&D as a percentage of total revenues.

 

Non GAAP R&D increased by $22 million, or 6%, primarily due to continued investment in late stage and launch programs. Non GAAP R&D as a percentage of total revenues remained consistent with Q2 2017.

 

SG&A

(in millions) Q2 2018   Q2 2017
SG&A (U.S. GAAP) $ 907.7     $ 899.1  
Legal and litigation costs -     (7.6 )
Depreciation (59.2 )   (40.9 )
Non GAAP SG&A $ 848.5     $ 850.6  
U.S. GAAP SG&A as a percentage of total revenues 23 %   24 %
Non GAAP SG&A as a percentage of total revenues 22 %   23 %
       

 

SG&A increased by $9 million, or 1%, primarily due to increased depreciation resulting from additional assets placed in service, partially offset by benefits from on-going cost reduction initiatives and operating synergies.

 

Non GAAP SG&A decreased by $2 million, or less than 1%. Non GAAP SG&A as a percentage of total revenues decreased by 1% due to benefits from on-going cost reduction initiatives and operating synergies.

 

Amortization of acquired intangible assets

 

In Q2 2018, Shire recorded amortization of acquired intangible assets of $458 million (Q2 2017: $434 million), as the increase was primarily related to the acceleration of CINRYZE amortization with the expected launch of lanadelumab (SHP643), subject to regulatory approval.

 

Integration and acquisition costs

 

In Q2 2018, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $179 million, primarily related to investment banking and third party professional fees related to the proposed Takeda and Servier transactions, integration costs related to Baxalta, and change in fair value of contingent consideration, primarily related to lanadelumab (SHP643), which was acquired from Dyax in 2016.

 

In Q2 2017, Shire recorded integration and acquisition costs of $344 million, which included integration costs of $193 million, primarily related to Baxalta, including employee severance and acceleration of stock compensation, third party professional fees, and expenses associated with facility consolidations. Additionally, integration and acquisition costs included a net charge of $151 million, relating to the change in fair value of contingent consideration, primarily related to lanadelumab (SHP643), which was acquired from Dyax in 2016.

 

Other expense, net

(in millions) Q2 2018   Q2 2017
Other expense, net (U.S. GAAP) $ (96.0 )   $ (137.7 )
Amortization of one-time upfront borrowing costs for Baxalta and Dyax 0.6     1.7  
Gain on sale of non-core investments -     (13.2 )
Fair value adjustment for joint venture net written option 5.0     -  
Non GAAP other expense, net $ (90.4 )   $ (149.2 )
       

 

Other expense, net decreased by $42 million, primarily due to unrealized gains in equity investments and lower interest expense resulting from debt paydown, partially offset by net losses on foreign exchange revaluations on balance sheet exposures.

 

Non GAAP Other expense, net decreased by $59 million, primarily due to the reasons discussed above.

 

Taxation

(in millions) Q2 2018   Q2 2017
Income tax expense (U.S. GAAP) $ (124.4 )   $ (24.3 )
Other Non GAAP tax adjustments (96.9 )   (187.6 )
Non GAAP income tax expense $ (221.3 )   $ (211.9 )
U.S. GAAP effective tax rate 17 %   9 %
Non GAAP effective tax rate 16 %   16 %
       

 

The effective tax rate on U.S. GAAP income in Q2 2018 was 17% (Q2 2017: 9%) and on a Non GAAP basis was 16% (Q2 2017: 16%).

 

The effective rate in Q2 2018 on U.S. GAAP income from continuing operations has been affected by certain provisions of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act) passed in December 2017, which enacts a U.S. federal tax rate of 21% along with anti-deferral provisions, new limitations on certain deductions required under the Tax Act, and reductions in the quantum of and tax benefit associated with U.S. integration costs over the prior year. This increased the effective tax rate for Q2 2018 as compared to Q2 2017.

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, projected revenues, 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 depends on third parties to supply certain inputs and services critical to its operations including certain inputs, services and ingredients critical to its manufacturing processes. 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;

·  the nature of producing plasma-based therapies 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;

·   failure to comply with laws and regulations governing the sales and marketing of its products could materially impact Shire's revenues and profitability;

·  Shire's products and product candidates face substantial competition in the product markets in which it operates, including competition from generics;

·   Shire's patented products are subject to significant 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 Shire's revenues, financial condition or results of operations;

PROFIT FORECASTS

 

In its FY 2017 results announcement on February 14, 2018 (FY 2017 Announcement), Shire published its full year 2018 outlook for total revenue(1) of $15.4-$15.9 billion, GAAP diluted EPS of $7.30-$7.90, and non-GAAP diluted EPS of $14.90-$15.50 (Full Year 2018 Outlook). Shire also announced "We are committed to achieving our projected revenue target of $17-$18 billion in 2020" and "With the already disclosed manufacturing and SG&A cost reduction initiatives, we are on track to achieve mid-forties Non-GAAP EBITDA margin by 2020" (Mid-Term Outlook).

 

Certain of the statements on pages 4 and 23 of this announcement include a "profit forecast" for the purposes of Rule 28 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") which was first contained in the FY 2017 Announcement.

 

In accordance with Rule 28.1(c) of the Code, the directors of Shire confirm that: (i) each of the Full Year 2018 Outlook and the Mid-Term Outlook remains valid and has been properly compiled on the basis of the assumptions stated in the FY 2017 Announcement; and (ii) the basis of accounting used for each of the Full Year 2018 Outlook and the Mid-Term Outlook is consistent with Shire's accounting policies.

 

The Full Year 2018 Outlook and the Mid-Term Outlook do not take into account, and exclude the impact of, the anticipated completion of the sale of the Oncology franchise to Servier S.A.S. (as announced by Shire on April 16, 2018).

 

(1) Management is providing guidance for total revenue. Total revenue is comprised of total product sales and royalties & other revenues. Pursuant to a change in U.S. GAAP related to accounting for revenue, certain revenue formerly classified as royalties are now recorded as product sales.

 


NON GAAP MEASURES

 

This press release contains financial measures not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures are referred to as "Non GAAP" measures and include: Non GAAP total revenues; Non GAAP operating income; Non GAAP income tax expense; Non GAAP net income; Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS; Non GAAP effective tax rate; Non GAAP CER; Non GAAP cost of sales; Non GAAP gross margin; Non GAAP R&D; Non GAAP SG&A; Non GAAP other expense, net; Non GAAP tax adjustments; 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 competitors' 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 differently 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 U.S. GAAP, and Shire's financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. 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:

 

Acquisitions and integration activities:

 

Out-license, divestments, reorganizations, and discontinued operations:

 

Legal and litigation 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 U.S. GAAP to Non GAAP measures.

 

Depreciation, which is included in Cost of sales, R&D, and SG&A costs in our U.S. 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, or receipts, 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 U.S. GAAP is presented on pages 20 to 23.

 

Non GAAP CER growth is computed by restating 2018 results using average 2017 foreign exchange rates for the relevant period.

 

Average exchange rates used by Shire for the three months ended June 30, 2018 were $1.37:£1.00 and $1.20:€1.00 (2017: $1.28:£1.00 and $1.09:€1.00).

 

A reconciliation of 2020 Non GAAP EBITDA margin to U.S. GAAP net income margin cannot be provided because we are unable to forecast with reasonable certainty many of the items necessary to calculate such comparable GAAP measures, including asset impairments, acquisitions and integration related expenses, divestments, reorganizations and discontinued operations related expenses, legal settlement costs, as well as other unusual or non-recurring gains or losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to our results computed in accordance with GAAP. We believe the inherent uncertainties in reconciling Non GAAP measures for periods after 2018 to the most comparable GAAP measures would make the forecasted comparable GAAP measures nearly impossible to predict with reasonable certainty and therefore inherently unreliable.
