STAINES-UPON-THAMES, United Kingdom - Feb. 7, 2017 -
(NYSE: MNK), a leading global specialty pharmaceutical company, today reported results for the transition period from Oct. 1, 2016 to Dec. 30, 2016. The last quarter of calendar year 2016 was the planned transition period as the company aligns to a calendar-based financial year. The company will continue its “4/5/4” reporting convention with the first fiscal year ending Dec. 29, 2017 (referred to as “2017”). Unless otherwise noted, all comparisons of the transition period ended Dec. 30, 2016 are to the comparable period in fiscal 2016 ended Dec. 25, 2015.
Net sales were $829.9 million in the transition period, up 2.3%, or 2.6% on a constant-currency basis. GAAP gross profit was $445.8 million with gross profit as a percentage of net sales of 53.7%, compared with 55.6%. Adjusted gross profit was $623.9 million, compared with $638.7 million. Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 75.2% versus 78.7%.
“Mallinckrodt’s transition period results were solid, driven by predominantly volume-based growth in our diversified Specialty Brands segment, which continued to contribute greater than 70% of our total net sales. By focusing on execution, we are making good progress in building a leading specialty pharmaceutical company, creating near- and long-term value for patients with high unmet medical needs,” said
Mark Trudeau, President and Chief Executive Officer
Acquire to Invest
strategy is evident in our focus on portfolio transformation and in developing a robust, organic Specialty Brands pipeline, including investigational products like StrataGraft
skin substitute and Terlipressin - potentially transformative therapies that, if approved, may deliver significant, even life-changing benefits for patients.”
“We have made significant progress over the past few months in strengthening our specialty pharmaceutical focus with the completed sale of our Nuclear Imaging business and our definitive agreement to divest the Intrathecal Therapy business. We believe these actions will provide additional capital for investment in continued growth and are confident this strategic transition will best position Mallinckrodt for the future,” Trudeau said.

GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $368.3 million, compared with $223.3 million, representing 44.4% and 27.5% of net sales, respectively. SG&A in the transition period was impacted primarily by the settlement of the legacy Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. matter brought by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and five states, and expenses associated with the termination of the company’s defined benefit pension plans. Adjusted SG&A expenses were $217.2 million or 26.2% of net sales, compared with $208.9 million or 25.8%. Research and development (R&D) expense in the transition period increased 7.8%, with R&D as a percentage of net sales at 8.0% in the transition period, compared with 7.6%. Due to increased competitive entrants, declining volumes and channel consolidation, the company recorded a goodwill impairment charge in the quarter of $207.0 million associated with its Specialty Generics segment.
Income tax benefit was $121.7 million versus $37.3 million, resulting in GAAP effective rates of 40.8% and negative 56.1%, respectively. The adjusted effective tax rate was 15.7% in the transition period compared with 16.1%. The variance between the GAAP and non-GAAP effective tax rate relates to the tax effect on pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments and deferred tax benefits recognized upon pay down of intercompany installment notes created by internal sales of acquired intangible assets.
GAAP diluted per share results from continuing operations were a loss of $1.67 in the transition period compared with earnings per share of $0.89. The loss reflects the impact of a goodwill impairment charge in the Specialty Generics segment, the recently announced FTC settlement and expenses associated with termination of the company’s defined benefit plans. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.91 versus $1.97.
BUSINESS SEGMENT RESULTS
Specialty Brands Segment
Net sales for the Specialty Brands segment were $603.1 million in the transition period, compared with $543.2 million, an increase of 11.0%, or 11.6% on a constant-currency basis.
H.P. Acthar Gel net sales were $325.4 million in the transition period, a 13.5%
increase over $286.7 million. Mallinckrodt’s second largest product, INOMAX
(nitric oxide) gas, for inhalation, generated net sales of $118.3 million, up 6.8%
over $110.8 million. OFIRMEV
(acetaminophen) injection net sales were $72.5 million compared with $66.9 million, an increase of 8.4%
Net sales of the Therakos
immunology platform were $47.4 million compared with $50.4 million, a decrease of 6.0%, with growth of 0.1% on a constant-currency basis. The company is encouraged by progress towards resolution of the third-party manufacturer production issue and expects resolution by the second quarter of 2017.
Specialty Generics Segment
Net sales in the transition period decreased 17.4% to $212.9 million, compared with $257.6 million, driven principally by net sales declines in various product categories due to continued competition and channel consolidation negatively impacting both price and volume. On a constant-currency basis, segment net sales declined 17.5%.
Mallinckrodt generated $195.6 million in operating cash flow and $130.4 million in free cash flow in the transition period. During the transition period, operating cash flow and free cash flow were unfavorably impacted by tax payments to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
During the period, the company repurchased 2.6 million ordinary shares for $158.8 million under its share repurchase program, bringing total shares repurchased since January 2015 under the company’s authorized programs to 13.1 million, or approximately 11.3% of diluted shares outstanding, since inception.
Mallinckrodt’s cash balance at the end of the transition period was $342.0 million, allowing the company to repay its revolving credit facility subsequent to the period close.
With its strong cash position, proven cash flow generation ability and proceeds from the sale of the Nuclear Imaging business, Mallinckrodt remains focused on capital allocation through business development and returning cash to shareholders.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release contains financial measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted gross profit, adjusted SG&A, net sales growth on a constant-currency basis, adjusted effective tax rate, and free cash flow, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable SEC rules and regulations.
Adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit and adjusted SG&A represent amounts prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP) and adjusted for certain items that management believes are not reflective of the operational performance of the business. The adjustments for these items are on a pre-tax basis for adjusted gross profit and adjusted SG&A and on an after-tax basis for adjusted net income. Adjustments to GAAP amounts include, as applicable to each measure, restructuring and related charges, net; amortization and impairment charges; discontinued operations; acquisition-related expenses; changes in fair value of contingent consideration obligations; inventory step-up expenses; significant legal and environmental charges; pension settlement charges; recurrent cash tax payments to the IRS associated with internal installment sales transactions; and other items identified by the company. Adjusted diluted earnings per share represent adjusted net income divided by the number of diluted shares.
The adjusted effective tax rate is calculated as the income tax effects on continuing and discontinued operations plus the income tax impact included in Mallinckrodt’s reconciliation of net income, divided by income from continuing and discontinued operations plus the pre-tax, non-income, tax-related adjustments included in its reconciliation of adjusted net income (excluding dilutive share impact). The income tax impact item included in its reconciliation of adjusted net income primarily represents the tax impact of adjustments between net income and adjusted net income as well as deferred tax benefits recognized upon pay down of intercompany installment notes created by internal sales of acquired intangible assets.
Net sales growth on a constant-currency basis measures the change in net sales between current- and prior-year periods using a constant currency, the exchange rate in effect during the applicable prior-year period.
Free cash flow for the transition quarter represents net cash provided by operating activities of $195.6 million less capital expenditures of $65.2 million, each as prepared in accordance with GAAP.
The company has provided these adjusted financial measures because they are used by management, along with financial measures in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the company's operating performance. In addition, the company believes that they will be used by certain investors to measure Mallinckrodt's operating results. Management believes that presenting these adjusted measures provides useful information about the company's performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance.
These adjusted measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The company's definition of these adjusted measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.
Because adjusted financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of certain of these historical adjusted financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.
Guidance on the company's 2017 diluted earnings per share and effective tax rate has been provided only on a non-GAAP basis. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of items that would be included in the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures. Because reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort, it is not included in this release.
Further information regarding non-GAAP financial measures can be found on the Investor Relations page of the company’s website.
