PARSIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: WPI) today reported net income for the third quarter 2012 increased 24.2 percent to $172.3 million or $1.35 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis, compared to $138.7 million or $1.09 per diluted share in the third quarter 2011.  Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter 2012 included $6.7 million or $0.05 per share related to the favorable settlement of a tax audit and other tax benefits realized in the quarter. Net revenue increased 18.8 percent to $1.29 billion, compared to $1.08 billion in the third quarter 2011. On a GAAP basis, net income increased by $8.6 million or 13 percent to $76.7 million or $0.60 per diluted share compared to earnings of $68.1 million or $0.54 per diluted share in the third quarter 2011. 

For the third quarter 2012, adjusted EBITDA increased 18 percent to $304.6 million, compared to $258.2 million in the third quarter 2011.  Refer to the attached reconciliation tables for adjustments to GAAP earnings.  Cash flow from operations was $145.9 million and cash and marketable securities were $234.4 million at September 30, 2012.

"Our third quarter 2012 double digit growth in global revenues, non-GAAP earnings and adjusted EBITDA represents another quarter of solid growth and strong execution at Watson," said Paul Bisaro, President and CEO. "We are very pleased that as we transition from Watson stand-alone to a larger company following the Actavis acquisition, we have demonstrated outstanding execution of our 2012 business plan. We delivered this performance while we simultaneously focused on integration planning and are now ready to capitalize on our objectives for uniting Watson and Actavis, and creating a larger, more powerful global competitor."

"During the quarter, Watson received a number of important FDA approvals including generic versions of Lidoderm®, Arthrotec®, Pulmicort Respules® and Watson's Next Choice ONE DOSE. In addition, we launched an authorized generic version of Xopenex® inhalation solution during the quarter and filed a number of new ANDAs containing Paragraph IV patent challenges, including a first-to-file opportunity for a generic version of Xopenex® HFA, " Bisaro continued. 

"On October 2nd, we completed the remaining financing necessary to fund the acquisition of Actavis at very favorable interest rates.  We have already announced our new global management structure for the combined company.  While we celebrate our stand-alone achievements for the third quarter of 2012, we now transition our focus to the seamless execution of our integration strategies and on maximizing the value of this acquisition to achieve strong growth in 2013 and beyond," concluded Bisaro.

Global Generics net revenue for the third quarter 2012 increased 15 percent to $920.9 million as a result of new product launches including the launch of a generic version of Lovenox® in January of 2012, a generic version of Vancocin® in April of 2012, an authorized generic version of Xopenex® in August of 2012, and higher international revenues. Third quarter 2012 international net revenue increased 37 percent to $198.1 million, when compared to the third quarter 2011. This increase was the result of the acquisition of Ascent in January of 2012 and higher sales in key markets including France, UK and Canada.  

Global Generics R&D investment for the third quarter 2012 was $55.3 million. Global Generics selling and marketing expenses for the third quarter 2012 increased 15 percent to $51.9 million, primarily due to higher international selling and marketing expenses from the addition of Ascent.

Global Generics adjusted gross margin increased to 47.2 percent from 46.5 percent in the third quarter of 2011, as a result of higher share of profit from sales of the authorized generic version of Concerta®.

Global Brands net revenue increased 10 percent to $121.3 million in the third quarter 2012, primarily the result of continued growth of our promoted products including Generess® Fe, Crinone® and Rapaflo®. In addition, the establishment of our business in Canada also contributed to the revenue increase when compared to the third quarter 2011.

Global Brands R&D investment increased $38.4 million to $57.2 million in the third quarter 2012 compared to the third quarter 2011. The increase was primarily due to higher upfront and third party development milestone costs for biosimilars in our Global Brands segment, including in-licensing costs associated with the agreement with Synthon for a biosimilar to Herceptin, which we contributed to our biosimilars collaboration with Amgen. Global Brands selling and marketing expenses of $40.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 decreased by 2 percent relative to the prior year period.

Global Brands adjusted gross margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 75.0 percent, compared to 77.5 percent for third quarter of 2011 as a result of increased manufacturing costs and a more favorable product mix in the prior year period.

Distribution segment net revenue increased 44 percent to $243.0 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to $168.8 million in the third quarter 2011. The increase was related to new third-party product launches during the third quarter. Distribution revenue consists only of sales of third-party products and excludes sales of Watson's brand and generic products.

Selling and marketing expenses increased $4.5 million to $22.8 million, as a result of higher freight costs and expenses associated with relocating our Groveport, Ohio distribution operations to our Olive Branch, Mississippi facility and higher sales related expenses. Distribution segment gross margin decreased 1.9 percentage points to 15.1 percent in the third quarter 2012 as a result of higher sales to chain customers at lower margins.

Other Operating Expenses

Consolidated general and administrative expenses were $110.1 million in the third quarter 2012, an increase of 29.2 percent from the third quarter 2011. The increase was due to costs associated with the pending acquisition of Actavis, the addition of Ascent and higher legal expenses.  Amortization expense for the third quarter 2012 was $95.2 million, compared to $71.8 million in third quarter 2011. The increase was due to the amortization of levalbuterol product rights acquired in the Arrow acquisition and product rights acquired in the Ascent acquisition.

2012 Financial Outlook*

Watson's estimates include the Actavis business as of  November 1, 2012.   Estimates are based on actual results for the first nine months of 2012 and management's current belief about prescription trends, pricing levels, inventory levels and the anticipated timing of future product launches and events.

Watson estimates total net revenue for 2012 will be approximately $5.9 billion.

  • Adjusted non-GAAP earnings for 2012 are expected to be between $5.85 and $5.95 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for 2012 is expected to be between $1.36 and $1.39 billion.

2013 Financial Outlook*

Based on preliminary estimates Watson expects full year 2013 non-GAAP earnings per share will grow between 30 percent and 40 percent over the high-end of our estimated combined range for 2012.

*Includes an additional 5.5 million shares as of the acquisition close on November 1, 2012.

The reconciliation table is based in part on management's estimate of non-GAAP net income for the year ending December 31, 2012.  Watson expects certain known GAAP charges for 2012, as presented in the schedule above.  Other GAAP charges that may be excluded from non-GAAP net income are possible, but their amounts are dependent on numerous factors that we currently cannot ascertain with sufficient certainty or are presently unknown.  These GAAP charges are dependent upon future events and valuations that have not yet been performed.
