Taro Provides Results for September 30, 2016

HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2016-- Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TARO) (“Taro” or the “Company”) today provided unaudited financial results for the three and six months ended September 30, 2016.

Quarter ended September 30, 2016 Highlights - compared to September 30, 2015

  • Net sales of $228.8 million, increased $16.7 million or 7.9%, driven by increased volumes in the U.S. generic business. The 2015 net sales were negatively impacted by a $19.6 million net charge taken to meet contractual obligations associated with price adjustments. On a pro-forma basis, adjusting 2015 net sales for the price protection provision, net sales would have decreased 1.2%.
  • Gross profit of $177.3 million, increased $8.5 million, or 5.1%
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses decreased $3.9 million to $14.8 million with all of our activities, including clinical studies, proceeding according to plan as the R&D spend is not evenly distributed across quarters.
  • Selling, marketing, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) decreased $3.2 million to $20.9 million, principally the result of reduced Keveyis marketing spend.
  • Operating income increased $16.6 million to $141.6 million, or 61.9% of net sales compared to 58.9%
  • Foreign Exchange (FX) income decreased $21.5 million from $34.9 million to $13.4 million.
  • Tax expense of $35.6 million increased $5.1 million.
  • Net income attributable to Taro was $123.7 million compared to $133.3 million, a $9.7 million decrease, as the increase in operating income was offset by the decrease in FX income and an increase in tax expense, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $3.00 compared to $3.11.

Six Months ended September 30, 2016 Highlights - compared to September 30, 2015

  • Net sales of $462.6 million, increased $35.2 million, or 8.2%, with an increase in volumes, principally due to an increase in our U.S. generic volumes. On a pro-forma basis, adjusted for the 2015 price protection provision, the net sales increase would have been 2.4%.
  • Gross profit increased $19.5 million to $360.1 million, and as a percentage of net sales, was 77.8% compared to 79.7%.
  • R&D expenses of $32.8 million remained in line with prior year expenses.
  • SG&A decreased $3.8 million to $43.1 million, principally as the result of reduced Keveyis spend.
  • Operating income increased $24.8 million to $284.2 million, or 61.4% of net sales compared to 60.7%
  • FX income decreased $23.2 million from $30.7 million to $7.5 million.
  • Tax expense of $66.0 million increased $5.5 million.
  • Net income attributable to Taro was $233.6 million compared to $237.0 million, a $3.4 million decrease, as the increase in operating income was offset by the decrease in FX income and increase in tax expense, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $5.59 compared to $5.54.

Mr. Kal Sundaram, Taro’s CEO stated, “We are pleased with our sales and operating performance in the face of increasing competitive intensity and pricing pressure. Our new product sales have met, and in some cases, exceeded our expectations, helping to off-set the decline in sales arising from the price erosion of existing products. We continue to focus on building our R&D pipeline to deliver sustained long-term performance.”

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash flow provided by operations for the six months ended September 30, 2016, was $192.7 million compared to $129.3 million for the six months ended September 30, 2015.
  • As of September 30, 2016, cash, including short-term bank deposits and marketable securities, decreased $319.2 million to $909.5 million from March 31, 2016, mainly due to the $240.6 million impact from the Company’s share repurchases, and a $251.3 million increase in long-term bank deposits.

FDA Approvals and Filings

The Company recently received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) Naftifine Hydrochloride Cream USP, 1%. The Company has a total of thirty six ANDAs awaiting FDA approval.
