GREENFIELD, Ind, (February 6, 2019) – Elanco Animal Health Incorporated (NYSE: ELAN), today reported global revenue for full year 2018 increased 6 percent to $3.1 billion. For the fourth quarter of 2018, global revenue also grew 6 percent to $799.3 million. The results reflect strong volume growth and the execution of the company’s targeted, three-pillar strategy focused on Portfolio, Innovation and Productivity. The results also reflect strong full year performance in its three targeted growth categories: Companion Animal Disease Prevention, Companion Animal Therapeutics and Food Animal Future Protein & Health.

“Our solid results for the full year demonstrate that our strategy is on track, we’re executing efficiently and making strong progress against our strategy to deliver the results we promised to our customers, investors and employees,” said Jeff Simmons, president and chief executive officer of Elanco. “Overall, the animal health market continues to display strong fundamentals that will drive growth going forward. We are well positioned to capitalize on these industry growth drivers and are optimistic about our ability to continue to drive top and bottom line growth with the momentum we are carrying into 2019.”

Fourth Quarter Key Events:

Innovation

  • Our portfolio of innovation launched since 2015 accounted for $69.8 million in revenue, up $29.7 million or 74 percent over the same quarter last year.
  • Experior: Received U.S. approval for Experior, a first-of-its-kind product for the reduction of ammonia gas emission in cattle. This approval marked Elanco’s fourth consecutive year since 2015 of securing three key new product approvals.
  • Imvixa: Met with the Norwegian Medicines Agency and have agreed on the path forward for submission of Imvixa, a novel treatment for sea lice in salmon.
  • Credelio: Launched Credelio, our innovative oral flea and tick treatment for cats in Europe.

Portfolio

  • As a group, the targeted growth categories in Elanco's portfolio - Companion Animal Disease Prevention, Companion Animal Therapeutics and Food Animal Future Protein & Health grew 20 percent on a constant currency basis, representing 60 percent of Elanco's total business.
  • Interceptor Plus reached blockbuster status, exceeding $100 million in annual sales for the first time.

Productivity

  • Completed the sale of the Cali, Colombia manufacturing facility in December 2018.
  • Announced a restructuring program that will replace physical presence in 16 countries with other go-to market models, as well as streamline and delayer international operations.
  • For the full year 2018, Elanco:.
    • Reduced operating expenses by 5%
    • Exited four manufacturing facilities;
    • Reduced 18 contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs), finishing the year with 100 CMOs;
    • Rationalized 15 percent of low-volume, low-margin stock keeping units (SKUs).

Fourth Quarter Reported Results:

In the fourth quarter of 2018, global revenue was $799.3 million, an increase of 6 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenue, excluding strategic exits, increased 6 percent to $774.7 million. Gross margin, as a percent of revenue, increased 200 basis points to 48 percent. Tax expense was a benefit of $18.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Net income for the fourth quarter increased $177.9 million to $16.4 million, or $0.04 per basic share.

Companion Animal Disease Prevention revenue increased 43 percent for the quarter, primarily driven by volume and increased price partially offset by an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. Revenue growth improved in comparison to prior year due to a reduction in channel inventory in the fourth quarter of 2017. Growth was also driven by continued uptake in demand for Interceptor Plus and Credelio, and increased sales of certain vaccines from new customer agreements. Parastar® contributed unique growth in the quarter as we entered into a one-time agreement to sell all remaining inventory.

Companion Animal Therapeutics revenue decreased 6 percent for the quarter, driven by decreased volume and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange, partially offset by increased price. The revenue decrease was impacted by both timing and availability of Galliprant® shipments. A planned shipment in late 2018 was delayed until early 2019 to appropriately complete the quality release process. In addition, market demand for Galliprant continues to grow, exceeding supply capacity and resulting in Galliprant backorders at the end of the year. Elanco is working diligently to expand production and expects to clear remaining backorders by late first quarter or early second quarter 2019.

Food Animal Future Protein & Health revenue increased 8 percent for the quarter, driven by both volume and increased price, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. Growth was driven by poultry animal-only antibiotics and vaccines, as well as aqua products.

Food Animal Ruminants & Swine revenue decreased 8 percent for the quarter, driven by price, volume and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. The revenue decline was driven by softness in swine antibiotics, particularly in Asia, and a stock-outage of Micotil®, an injectable treatment for Bovine Respiratory Disease, now resolved.

Strategic Exits are businesses Elanco has exited or has made the decision to exit. Revenue from Strategic Exits decreased 6 percent for the quarter, and now represents 3 percent of total revenue.

Gross profit increased 11 percent, to $386.8 million, in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with the fourth quarter of 2017. Gross margin, as a percent of revenue, was 48 percent, an increase of 200 basis points period over period. The gross margin increase was primarily due to favorable product mix and non-recurring costs in 2017 associated with the unwinding of purchase accounting inventory adjustments, partially offset by 200 basis points of unfavorable impact from foreign exchange rates.

Research and development expenses decreased 1 percent, to $61.1 million, or 8 percent of revenue. This decrease was primarily driven by timing of certain projects within the year. Marketing, selling and administrative expenses decreased 6 percent, to $185.1 million, primarily driven by continued productivity initiatives, cost control measures across the business, and timing of marketing investments.

Amortization of intangibles decreased 17 percent to $50.1 million primarily driven by the acceleration of amortization related to certain product exits and rationalization in 2017.

Asset impairments, restructuring, and other special charges decreased $139.8 million to $46.0 million primarily due to elevated severance and terminations cost incurred in 2017 associated with the U.S. voluntary early retirement program offered by Lilly and asset impairment charges in 2017 related to acquired IPR&D assets.

Net interest expense was $21.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018; no net interest expense was incurred in the previous year. Other-net, (income) expense was expense of $25.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with income of $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in expense was primarily driven by an increase in the Aratana contingent consideration associated with Galliprant.

Full Year Reported Results

For the full-year 2018, global revenue increased 6 percent, to $3.1 billion, compared with $2.9 billion for the full-year 2017. Reported net income and earnings per share were $86.5 million and $0.28, respectively.

Fourth Quarter Consolidated non-GAAP Results:

Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter increased 148 percent to $105.4 million, which excludes the net impact of $128.0 million of asset impairments, restructuring and other special charges, the amortization of intangible assets, and adjustments related to contingent consideration for Aratana, net of the impact from taxes. Adjusted EPS for the quarter was $0.29 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 21 percent, an increase of 400 basis points primarily driven by increased gross margin and a reduction in operating expenses.

For further detail of non-GAAP measures, see the Reconciliation of GAAP Reported to Selected Non-GAAP Adjusted Information table later in this press release.

Full Year Non-GAAP Measures

For the full-year 2018, net income and earnings per share, on an Adjusted non-GAAP basis, were $431.8 million and $1.18 per diluted share, respectively.

For further detail of non-GAAP measures, see the Reconciliation of GAAP Reported to Selected Non-GAAP Adjusted Information table later in this press release.

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements concerning our 2019 guidance, our industry and our operations, performance and financial condition, including in particular, statements relating to our business, growth strategies, product development efforts and future expenses.

Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, by their nature, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. As a result, our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include regional, national, or global political, economic, business, competitive, market, and regulatory conditions including, but not limited to the following:

  • heightened competition, including from new innovation or generics;
  • the impact of disruptive innovations and advances in veterinary medical practices, animal health technologies and alternatives to animal-derived protein;
  • changes in regulatory restrictions on the use of antibiotics in food animals, as well as changing market demand regarding the use of antibiotics and productivity products;
  • our ability to implement our business strategies or achieve targeted cost efficiencies and gross margin improvements;
  • consolidation of our customers and distributors;
  • the success of our R&D and licensing efforts;
  • our ability to successfully acquire target companies and integrate them into our existing operations;
  • unanticipated safety, quality or efficacy concerns associated with our products;
  • the impact of weather conditions and the availability of natural resources;
  • changes in U.S. foreign trade policy, imposition of tariffs or trade disputes;
  • the impact of global macroeconomic conditions; and
  • the effect of the transactions involving the separation of our business from that of Lilly and distribution of Lilly's interest in us to its shareholders, if consummated, on our business.

See "Risk Factors" in our prospectus relating to our initial public offering filed on September 21, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a further description of these and other factors. Although we have attempted to identify important risk factors, there may be other risk factors not presently known to us or that we presently believe are not material that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report. If any of these risks materialize, or if any of the above assumptions underlying forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual results and developments may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report. For the reasons described above, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements, which should also be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included elsewhere in this press release. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release speaks only as of the date thereof. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or to revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law. Comparisons of results for current and any prior periods are not intended to express any future trends or indications of future performance, unless specifically expressed as such, and should be viewed as historical data.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

We use non-GAAP financial measures, such as revenues excluding strategic exits, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net (income) loss, adjusted EPS, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin to assess and analyze our operational results and trends as explained in more detail in the reconciliation tables later in this release.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are also useful to investors because they provide greater transparency regarding our operating performance. Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures and reported GAAP financial measures are included in the tables accompanying this press release and are posted on our website at www.elanco.com. The primary material limitations associated with the use of such non-GAAP measures as compared to U.S. GAAP results include the following: (i) they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, including those in our industry, (ii) they exclude financial information and events, such as the effects of an acquisition or amortization of intangible assets, that some may consider important in evaluating our performance, value or prospects for the future, (iii) they exclude items or types of items that may continue to occur from period to period in the future and (iv) they may not exclude all unusual or non-recurring items, which could increase or decrease these measures, which investors may consider to be unrelated to our long-term operations, such as Strategic Exits. These non-GAAP measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP reported measures. We encourage investors to review our unaudited condensed consolidated and combined financial statements in their entirety and caution investors to use U.S. GAAP measures as the primary means of evaluating our performance, value and prospects for the future, and non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures.

(Dollars in millions, except per share data)

We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) excluding amortization of intangible assets, purchase accounting adjustments to inventory, integration costs of acquisitions, severance, asset impairment, gain on sale of assets, facility exit costs and other specified significant items, such as unusual or non-recurring items that are unrelated to our long-term operations adjusted for income tax expense associated with the excluded financial items.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude purchase accounting adjustments to inventory, integration costs of acquisitions, severance, asset impairment, gain on sale of assets, facility exit costs and other specified significant items, such as unusual or non-recurring items that are unrelated to our long-term operations adjusted for income tax expense associated with the excluded financial items.

We define Adjusted EPS as adjusted net income divided by the number of adjusted weighted average shares outstanding as of December 31, 2018.

The following is a reconciliation of GAAP Reported for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 to Selected Non-GAAP Adjusted information:

The table above reflects only line items with non-GAAP adjustments.

(a) The company uses non-GAAP financial measures that differ from financial statements reported in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company’s non-GAAP measures adjust reported results to exclude amortization of intangibles and items that are typically highly variable, difficult to predict, and/or of a size that could have a substantial impact on the company’s reported operations for a period. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors. Among other things, they may help investors evaluate the company’s ongoing operations. They can assist in making meaningful period-over-period comparisons and in identifying operating trends that would otherwise be masked or distorted by the items subject to the adjustments. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the performance of the business, including to allocate resources. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(b) Adjustments to certain GAAP reported measures for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 include the following:

(1) 2017 excludes charges entirely associated with the incremental purchase accounting charges related to inventory valuation due to inventory that was subsequently sold.

(2) 2018 excludes expenses primarily related to severance and asset impairment charges taken as a part of the company’s productivity agenda ($33.7 million): in-process research and development write-offs ($2.0 million) and independent company stand-up and other related activities ($17.3 million): partially offset by the gain on the sale of our Cali, Columbia facility ($1.5 million) and a favorable contract termination related to the suspension of commercial activities for Imrestor ($5.5 million).

(3) 2017 excludes expenses primarily related to severance, curtailment loss and special termination benefits ($99.8 million) associated with the U.S. voluntary early retirement program: integration costs ($15.2 million) associated with our acquired businesses; facility exist costs ($7.6 million); asset impairment costs ($66.8 million) primarily related to intangible asset impairments for acquired IPR&D assets; and partially offset by a gain on the disposal of a site ($3.6 million) previously closed as part of our acquisition and integration of Novartis AH.

(4) 2018 excludes expenses resulting from an increase in the Aratana contingent consideration ($30.2 million) and expenses related to the integration activities ($1.7 million).

(5) 2017 excludes expenses resulting from an increase in the Aratana contingent ($0.1 million).

(6) 2018 and 2017 represent the income tax expense associated with the adjusted items. 2017 include expense (33.1 million) related to the U.S. tax reform.

(7) Adjusted weighted average shares outstanding: Basic and diluted includes 72.3 million shares sold in the September 2018 initial public offering for all periods presented.

(8) Reconciliation of each adjustment to earnings (loss) per share by line item is shown in the table below.

For the periods presented, we have not made adjustments for all items that may be considered unrelated to our long-term operations. We believe adjusted EBITDA, when used in conjunction with our results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and its reconciliation to net income (loss), enhances investors' understanding of our performance, valuation and prospects for the future. We also believe adjusted EBITDA is a measure used in the animal health industry by analysts as a valuable performance metric for investors.

The following is a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP Net Income (loss) for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 to EBIT, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the respective periods:
