Phibro Animal Health Corporation Reports Third Quarter

05/09/16

TEANECK, N.J., May 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Phibro Animal Health Corporation (NASDAQ:PAHC) today announced its financial results for its third quarter ended March 31, 2016.

  • Highlights for the March 2016 quarter (compared to the March 2015 quarter, excluding $2 million of prior-year vaccine licensing milestone revenue and income)
    • Net sales of $183 million, a decrease of 1%
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $29.7 million, an increase of 16%
    • Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.38, an increase of 6%

 COMMENTARY

"Our third quarter was a continuation of many of the trends we have seen recently, with our core Animal Health segment recording low single-digit revenue growth leading to robust double-digit Adjusted EBITDA growth," said Jack Bendheim, Phibro's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Some of our U.S. customers are reducing usage of antibacterials that are classified as medically important by the Food and Drug Administration, in anticipation of upcoming regulatory changes and in response to consumer preferences for the reduction or elimination of antibacterials in protein production. While U.S. MFAs and other declined in the quarter, our international volumes grew, even though revenues were tempered by pricing pressures from the strong U.S. dollar. We believe international volume increases will continue to be a substantial offset to potential U.S. declines. Nutritional specialties and vaccines reported good growth as producers look for alternatives to maintain the health of their animals."

The FDA recently took initial steps to withdraw approval of our swine drug Mecadox® (carbadox). In accordance with the FDA process, Phibro has requested a hearing with the FDA to address its concerns. Phibro intends to continue to collaborate fully with the FDA to provide and evaluate scientific data which we expect will address the FDA's concerns. We will submit our data and analyses to the FDA not later than the July 11, 2016 deadline. After that submission, the timeline is undefined and we are unable to estimate when or if additional steps will be taken. Safety is Phibro's highest priority and we continue to have complete confidence in the safety of Mecadox. We expect the data we present to the FDA will support the continued safe use of the product. This initial action by the FDA does not prohibit the sale or use of Mecadox and Mecadox continues to be marketed to swine producers, as it has been for over 40 years.

For the twelve months ended March 31, 2016, MFAs and other include approximately $40 million of U.S. net sales of medically important antibacterials for use in animal health. Effective January 1, 2017, producers will continue to be allowed to use medically important antibacterials for therapeutic uses. Some portion of these sales could be at risk of decline due to regulatory and consumer preference changes, balanced by the ongoing need for therapeutic treatment of diseases, that is necessary for animal welfare, food safety and affordable food. Phibro products in this category include virginiamycin, tetracyclines and neomycin.

For the twelve months ended March 31, 2016, MFAs and other also include approximately $15 million of U.S net sales of Mecadox.

QUARTERLY RESULTS

Comparison of three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015

Our results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 included $2.0 million of revenue and income from milestone payments for licensing of vaccine delivery technology. For a better understanding of underlying trends, we also present comparisons with 2015 that exclude the prior year milestone payments.

Net sales

Net sales of?$183.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 decreased $2.0 million, or 1%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, excluding the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue. Animal Health grew $3.0 million, offset by declines in Mineral Nutrition and Performance Products of $4.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively.

Including the prior year $2.0 million in vaccine licensing milestone revenue, net sales decreased $4.0 million, or 2%.

Animal Health

Net sales of?$118.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 grew $3.0 million, or 3%, excluding the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue. The growth was primarily due to volume increases in the nutritional specialty and vaccine product groups. Nutritional specialty products grew $3.0 million, or 15%, primarily due to U.S. volume growth of our products for the dairy and poultry industries. Vaccines grew $0.9 million, or 8%, principally from volume growth, including approximately two months results from the MVP Laboratories, Inc. ("MVP") acquisition, partially offset by a reduction in international volumes. Certain vaccine sales were reduced due to production interruptions necessary to implement Good Manufacturing Practices capital improvements, which have now been completed. MFAs and other decreased $0.9 million, or 1%, primarily due to volume declines in the U.S., as well as unfavorable currency movements in certain international markets.

Including the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue, net sales grew $1.0 million, or 1%.

Mineral Nutrition

Net sales of?$53.0 million decreased $4.3 million, or 7%, for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The decrease is due to lower average selling prices due to underlying raw material commodity price declines.  Partially offsetting the lower average selling prices were increased volumes from improved demand for trace mineral products.

Performance Products

Net sales of?$12.1 million decreased $0.7 million, or 6%, for the three months ended March 31, 2016 due to lower volumes of copper-based and chemical catalyst products, as well as lower average selling prices of personal care ingredients.  These declines were partially offset by higher volumes of personal care ingredients.

Gross profit

Gross profit of $61.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 increased $4.4 million, or 8%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, excluding the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue and excluding $1.6 million of current year acquisition-related cost of goods sold from the inventory step-up related to the MVP acquisition. Gross profit increased to 33.6% of net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to 30.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  Animal Health gross profit increased $5.2 million due to volume growth and favorable currency movements. Mineral Nutrition gross profit was level with last year, as lower average selling prices were offset by lower product costs.  Performance Products gross profit decreased $0.5 million due to higher product costs of copper-based products and lower average selling prices of personal care ingredients, partially offset by higher volumes of personal care ingredients.

Including the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue and including $1.6 million of acquisition-related cost of goods sold, gross profit increased $0.8 million, or 1%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses of? $36.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 increased $0.5 million, or 2%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, excluding acquisition-related transaction costs of $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016; acquisition-related intangible amortization of $1.5 million and $1.2 million; and acquisition-related accrued compensation of $0.4 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Animal Health accounted for $0.6 million of the increase, driven by increased sales force and product development costs. Corporate expenses accounted for $0.1 million of the increase due to increased compensation and office-related costs.

Including acquisition-related transaction costs, intangible amortization and accrued compensation, SG&A increased $1.5 million, or 4%.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of?$29.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 increased $4.2 million, or 16%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, excluding the prior year $2.0 million in vaccine licensing milestone revenue. Animal Health adjusted EBITDA increased $4.5 million, or 16%, due to sales growth and increased gross profit, partially offset by increased SG&A expenses. Mineral Nutrition increased $0.3 million, or 7%, due to lower SG&A expenses as lower average selling prices were offset by lower product costs. Performance Products decreased $0.5 million due to lower volumes. Corporate expenses increased $0.1 million due to increased compensation and office-related costs.

Including the prior year $2.0 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenue, adjusted EBITDA increased $2.2 million, or 8%.

Interest expense, net

Interest expense, net of?$3.9 million increased $0.5 million primarily due to interest on increased borrowings under our revolving credit facility (the "Revolver"), excluding acquisition-related accrued interest of $0.4 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively,

Including acquisition-related accrued interest, interest expense, net increased $0.7 million, or 18%.

Foreign currency (gains) losses, net

Foreign currency (gains) losses, net for the three months ended March 31, 2016 amounted to net gains of?$2.2 million, as compared to $4.6 million in net gains for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Foreign currency gains in the three months ended March 31, 2016 were primarily due to the movement of Brazil and South Africa currencies relative to the U.S. dollar. Foreign currency gains and losses primarily arise from intercompany balances.

Provision (benefit) for income taxes

The provision for income tax was $0.6 million, and the effective tax rate was 3.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2016, including the effect of certain discrete items.

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016, included a benefit of $4.6 million for discrete items related to previously unrecognized tax benefits and a release of our domestic valuation allowance, of $2.1 million and $2.5 million, respectively.  Excluding this $4.6 million benefit, income tax expense was?$5.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared with $6.1 million for the same period last year, resulting in a 27.2% effective tax rate compared to 26.9% for the same period last year. Our consolidated provisions for income taxes, before taking into effect discrete items, is primarily comprised of income taxes relating to profitable foreign jurisdictions.

Prior to releasing the valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets during the quarter ended December 31, 2015, our domestic provision for income taxes was substantially offset by the utilization of domestic net operating losses that previously had been offset by a valuation allowance. As a result of the release of the valuation allowance, we expect our income tax provision in future periods to increase as we record an income tax provision on our domestic pre-tax income.

Adjusted diluted EPS

Adjusted diluted EPS was $0.38 for the quarter, compared with $0.36 last year. The increase was primarily due to growth in adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by increased cash income tax payments due to the mix of international pre-tax income.

  • 3.3x leverage ratio at March 31, 2016
    • $367 million total debt
    • $113 million LTM adjusted EBITDA

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE UPDATE

Our updated guidance for fiscal year 2016 is:

($ in millions, except per
share)
 Updated
Guidance
 Growth vs. 2015
Ex-licensing (1)
 Growth vs. 2015
as reported
* Net Sales $745 - $750 approximately 1%  (1)% - 0%
* Adjusted EBITDA $114 - $115 12% - 13% 4% - 5%
* Adjusted diluted EPS $1.58 - $1.60 4% - 5% (8)% - (7)%
* Diluted shares outstanding 40.0    
       

(1) Excludes $8 million of vaccine licensing milestone revenues and income included in the 2015 reported results.

Our Animal Health revenues for fiscal year 2016 are expected to be approximately $477-$482 million, representing growth of approximately 3% - 4% and accounting for more than all the consolidated sales growth. Within the Animal Health segment, we expect nutritional specialties and vaccines will continue to grow at double-digit rates; we expect MFAs and other will be even with or slightly above the prior year. Mineral Nutrition revenues are expected to decline approximately 4% from last year as volume increases are offset by lower commodity pricing. Performance Products revenues are expected to decline modestly from the prior year.

We expect our operating margin to expand to approximately 15.3% for the year, a 150 bps improvement over fiscal year 2015, excluding the vaccine licensing milestone revenue and income. We expect that an improved gross profit ratio, due to a combination of favorable business and product mix and favorable currency benefits on manufacturing costs, will be the principal contributor to the expanded operating margin. 

We expect interest expense, net of $15 million, an increase over the initial guidance due to financing costs for the MVP acquisition and for higher-than-expected working capital requirements.

We expect cash income taxes of approximately $18 million for fiscal year 2016, equivalent to approximately 22% of adjusted income before income taxes. Cash income taxes are expected to increase due to the mix of international pre-tax income.
