PDL BioPharma Announces

Quarter 2016 Financial Results


May 2, 2016

– PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the

quarter ended

March 31, 2016


Total revenues of

$103.1 million

for the first quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of



11 percent

versus the same period in

Non-GAAP net incom e

7 percent

$84.8 million

GAAP diluted EPS of


32 percent

compared to the same period of

34 percent

$55.9 million

The largest component of the difference in non-GAAP measure compared to GAAP is the exclusion of mark-to-market adjustments related to the fair value election of our investments in royalty rights. A full reconciliation of all components of the GAAP to Non-GAAP quarterly financial results can be found in Table 4 at the end of this release.

Revenue Highlights

for the quarter ended


Royalties from PDL's licensees to the Queen et al. patents of

$121.5 million

, which consisted of royalties earned on sales of products under license agreements associated with the Queen et al. patents;

Net royalty payments from acquired royalty rights and a change in fair value of the royalty rights assets of negative

$27.1 million

, which consisted of revenues associated with the change in estimated fair value of our royalty right assets and primarily related to the Depomed, Inc. royalty rights acquisition;

Interest revenue from notes receivable debt financings to late-stage healthcare companies of

$9.0 million

; and

License and other revenues of negative

$0.2 million

, which consisted of a negative

$0.3 million

mark-to-market adjustments on warrants held and, a realized gain of $0.1 million from the sale of PDL's investment in AxoGen Inc. common stock.

31 percent

for the first quarter ended

, when compared to the same period in

The decrease in royalties from PDL's licensees to the Queen et al. patents is due to decreased Lucentis

and Actemra

royalties as a result of the conclusion of their license agreements, partially offset by increased royalties from other Queen et al. royalty revenues.

PDL expects its revenue from the Queen et al. patents to materially decrease beyond this first quarter of 2016.

The decrease in royalty rights - change in fair value was driven by the

$47.9 million

decrease in the fair value of the Depomed royalty rights assets and is primarily a result of lower than expected cash royalties in the first quarter and an adjustment reducing future cash flows due to lower projected demand data, greater erosion of market share due to the launch of a generic, and higher gross-to-net adjustments for Glumetza.

PDL received

$17.2 million

in net cash royalty payments from its acquired royalty rights in the first quarter of 2016, compared to

$0.9 million

for the same period of

The decrease in interest revenues was due to reduced interest from Direct Flow Medical, Inc. as a result of ceasing to accrue interest due to the loan being impaired.

Operating Expense Highlights

Operating expenses were

$9.8 million

$7.7 million

The increase in operating expenses for the quarter as compared to the same period in 2015, was a result of an increase in general and administrative expenses of $1.5 million for legal service expenses mostly related to business development activities, the asset management of Wellstat Diagnostics, legal expenses related to a complaint against Merck Sharp & Dohme, Corp, and $0.9 million for compensation, including stock-based compensation, offset in part by a decrease in professional services from asset management expenses.

Other Financial Highlights

PDL had cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of

$292.0 million

$220.4 million

December 31, 2015

was primarily attributable to proceeds from royalty right payments of

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis by providing additional measures which may be considered “non-GAAP” financial measures under applicable SEC rules. We believe that the disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures provides our investors with information that offers greater insight into reconciling our earnings with the cash flows from our business and investments and more appropriately reflects the amounts and financial basis upon which our management assesses and operates our business. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for reported, or GAAP, net income, and

diluted earnings per share, and are not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance performed in conformity with GAAP.

“Non-GAAP net income“ and “Non-GAAP earnings per share - Diluted” are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represent GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per share - diluted adjusted to exclude (1) mark-to market adjustments related to the fair value election for our investments in royalty rights presented in our earnings, which include the fair value re-measurement of future discounted cash flows for each of the royalty rights assets we have acquired, (2) non-cash interest revenue from notes receivable (3) stock-based compensation expense, (4) non-cash interest expense related to PDL debt offering costs, (5) mark-to market adjustments related to warrants held, and to adjust (6) the related tax effect of all reconciling items within our reconciliation of our GAAP to Non-GAAP net income. Non-GAAP financial measures used by PDL may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
