Lantheus Holdings, Inc. Reports 2015 Second Quarter Financial Results

Second quarter worldwide DEFINITY® revenue increases 21% as-reported and in constant currency

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA increases 10% to $18.0 million

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 2015-- Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LNTH), parent company of Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc. (“LMI”), a global leader in developing, manufacturing, selling and distributing innovative diagnostic imaging agents and products, today reported financial results for the first time since its initial public offering on June 25, 2015.

Worldwide revenue for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $73.3 million, representing a decrease of 3% as-reported and 1% on a constant-currency basis over $75.6 million reported for the second quarter of 2014. Second quarter revenue results reflect the continued strong performance of DEFINITY® along with the anticipated effect of customer-specific changes within the Company’s nuclear medicine portfolio.

The Company’s second quarter 2015 GAAP net loss totaled $24.4 million or $(1.29) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million or $(0.09) per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2015 included the effects of $13.0 million of call premiums and accelerated interest obligations and $5.8 million of non-cash write-offs of deferred financing costs, all associated with the refinancing of the Company’s previously-outstanding senior notes, and a $6.5 million charge for the termination of its financial sponsor management agreement.

The Company’s second quarter 2015 net income, as adjusted for the above items, totaled $0.9 million or $0.05 per diluted share, an improvement of $2.5 million compared to a net loss of $1.6 million or $(0.09) per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014. The attached financial tables include a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to as-adjusted results.

The Company’s second quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, increased by 10% to $18.0 million, or 24.5% of reported revenue, compared to $16.3 million, or 21.6% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2014.

Jeff Bailey, President and CEO commented, “As our results reflect, during the second quarter we continued to make excellent progress driving our business toward greater efficiency and profitability. DEFINITY again posted a strong quarterly performance, growing 21% annually and posting its twelfth consecutive quarter of sequential growth. Within our nuclear medicine portfolio, the anticipated lower sales volumes and higher average selling prices driven by a customer-specific change earlier this year reduced our overall levels of revenue while bringing improved balance to our customer mix and contributing to further expansion of our profit margins. We are very pleased with our second quarter Adjusted EBITDA growth of 10% and margin expansion of 300 basis points, which reflect our continued progress toward strengthening and improving our operating model.”

Mr. Bailey continued, “Additionally, as a result of our recent initial public offering and the concurrent refinancing of our senior notes, we now benefit from reduced total leverage and considerably lower borrowing costs. Going forward, we expect to benefit from approximately $13.5 million of annual cash interest savings, which will significantly improve our free cash flow profile and create additional capacity for further deleveraging and investment. In summary, we are very enthusiastic about our progress during the first half of the year and will continue to focus on executing our key strategic initiatives for this year and beyond.”

Outlook

The Company anticipates worldwide revenue for full-year 2015 of approximately $293 million to $297 million, representing a constant currency change over last year of (1)% to 1%. This range assumes a negative full-year impact from currency of approximately $6 million, or 2%, compared to 2014.

The Company anticipates full-year 2015 Adjusted EBITDA, as described in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, of $72 million to $75 million, and 24% to 25% of reported revenue.

The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA target excludes the effect of possible future acquisitions, other material unanticipated future business developments and the adjustments of earnings as-reported to as-adjusted that are set forth in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations provided later in this release.

The Company’s guidance for worldwide revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are forward-looking statements. They are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from the anticipated targets. The anticipated targets are not predictions of the Company’s actual performance.
