Taro Provides Results for December 31, 2022

Business Wire 24-Jan-2023 5:43 PM

Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TARO) ("Taro" or the "Company") today provided unaudited financial results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2022.

Quarter ended December 31, 2022* Highlights - compared to December 31, 2021

  • Net sales of $139.2 million was line with the prior year quarter. We continue to experience price pressures particularly in the U.S. generic business.
  • Gross profit of $64.0 million (46.0% of net sales) compared to $76.0 million (54.7% of net sales).
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses of $12.9 million decreased $1.3 million.
  • Selling, marketing, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) of $49.9 million increased $25.0 million.
  • Operating income of $1.3 million compared to operating income of $37.0 million. The current year quarter operating result is primarily attributable to the aforementioned price erosion, as well as the on-going impact associated with our recent acquisition.
  • Interest and other financial income of $6.6 million increased $4.5 million.
  • Tax expense of $1.9 million compared to $13.2 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income attributable to Taro was $7.3 million compared to net income of $26.3 million, resulting in earnings per share of $0.19 compared to earnings per share of $0.70.

Nine Months ended December 31, 2022* Highlights - compared to December 31, 2021

  • Net sales of $426.4 million increased $8.3 million.
  • Gross profit of $192.6 million (45.2% of net sales compared to 51.6%) decreased $23.2 million.
  • R&D expenses of $35.9 million decreased $3.7 million.
  • SG&A of $148.2 million increased $75.7 million.
  • Operating income of $8.4 million compared to $42.2 million. Excluding the $61.4 million impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges in the prior year, operating income was $103.6 million. The current year operating income primarily reflects the six-month impact of the factors mentioned above.
  • Interest and other financial income of $12.8 million increased from $7.5 million.
  • Net income attributable to Taro was $18.5 million compared to $30.9 million, resulting in earnings per share of $0.49 compared to earnings per share of $0.82. Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges in the prior year, net income was $99.2 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $2.64.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash flow used in operations for the nine months ended December 31, 2022 was $24.9 million compared to $200.0 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2021. Excluding the impact from the settlement payments and settlement and loss contingencies charges impacting both periods, cash flow provided by operations was $50.4 million compared to $124.6 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2021.
  • As of December 31, 2022, cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits and marketable securities (both short- and long-term) decreased $54.6 million to $1.2 billion from March 31, 2022; principally the result of settlement payments.

* The December 31, 2022 results include nine months' results from the February 28, 2022 acquisition of Alchemee.

The Company cautions that the foregoing 2022 financial information (including Alchemee) is unaudited and is subject to change.
