We remain very confident about the overall performance for the company in 2019 and our recent announcements place us in a strong position to execute on our next phase of growth as we continue to deliver on our strategy to build a successful company through technology and market leadership in bioprocessing.”

Financial Guidance for 2019

Our financial guidance for the fiscal year 2019 is based on expectations for our existing business and does not include the financial impact of our pending acquisition of C Technologies, potential additional acquisitions, and future fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. 

FISCAL YEAR 2019 GUIDANCE:

  • Total revenue is projected to be in the range of $235-$241 million, an increase from our previous guidance of $218-$225 million. Our current guidance reflects overall revenue growth of 21%-24%, and organic revenue growth of 22%-25%.
  • Gross margin is expected to be 56%-57% on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, consistent with our previous guidance.
  • Income from operations is expected to be in the range of $39-$42 million on a GAAP basis, an increase from our previous guidance of $36-$39 million. Adjusted (non-GAAP) income from operations is expected to be in the range of $52-$55 million, an increase from our previous guidance of $48-$51 million.
  • Net income is expected to be in the range of $24.5-$27.5 million on a GAAP basis, an increase from our previous guidance of $23-$25 million. Adjusted (non-GAAP) net income is expected to be in the range of $41-$44 million, an increase from our previous guidance of $38-$40 million. 
  • Fully diluted GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.50-$0.56, an increase from our previous guidance of $0.48-$0.53. Adjusted (non-GAAP) fully diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.84-$0.90, an increase from our previous guidance of $0.81-$0.86. Both GAAP and adjusted EPS guidance includes the impact of our recent equity financing, which resulted in a weighted average addition of 2.1 million shares outstanding.

Our non-GAAP guidance for the fiscal year 2019 excludes the following items: 

  • $10.5 million estimated intangible amortization expense; $0.6 million in cost of product revenue and $9.9 million in G&A.
  • $2.7 million estimated acquisition and integration expenses associated with our acquisition of Spectrum Inc. ($1.3 million), and first quarter of 2019 costs related to our proposed acquisition of C Technologies ($1.4 million).
  • $4.5 million of non-cash interest expense (Other income (expense)) related to our debt financing.

Our non-GAAP guidance for the fiscal year 2019 includes:

  • An income tax increase of $1.1 million, representing the tax impact of acquisition costs and intangible amortization.

All reconciliations of GAAP to adjusted (non-GAAP) guidance are detailed in the tables included later in this press release.

C Technologies ContributionPending the completion of our proposed acquisition of C Technologies, we expect C Technologies to contribute $16-$17 million in revenue, and be accretive to adjusted earnings per share over the seven months of anticipated Repligen ownership in 2019. 

Conference CallRepligen will host a conference call and webcast today, May 9, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. EST, to discuss first quarter 2019 financial results and corporate developments. The conference call will be accessible by dialing toll-free (866) 777-2509 for domestic callers or (412) 317-5413 for international callers. No passcode is required for the live call. In addition, a webcast will be accessible via the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website. Both the conference call and webcast will be archived for a period of time following the live event. The replay dial-in numbers are (877) 344-7529 from the U.S., (855) 669-9658 from Canada and (412) 317-0088 for international callers. Replay listeners must provide the passcode 10131193. 

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial PerformanceTo supplement our financial statements, which are presented on the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance are included in this release: revenue growth rate at constant currency, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin, adjusted income from operations and adjusted operating margin, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share (EPS). The Company provides organic revenue growth rates in constant currency to exclude the impact of both foreign currency translation, and the impact of acquisition revenue for current year periods that have no prior year comparable, in order to facilitate a comparison of its current revenue performance to its past revenue performance. The Company provides revenue growth rates in constant currency in order to facilitate a comparison of its current revenue performance to its past revenue performance. To calculate revenue growth rates in constant currency, the Company converts actual net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and prior period.

The Company’s non-GAAP financial results and/or non-GAAP guidance exclude the impact of: acquisition and integration costs related to the Company’s acquisition of TangenX Technology Corporation, Spectrum Lifesciences, LLC (formerly known as Spectrum, Inc.), and the Company’s planned acquisition of C Technologies Inc.; intangible amortization costs; non-cash interest expense; the impact on tax of intangible amortization; tax benefits associated with variable integration expenses; and, in the case of EBITDA, cash interest expense related to the Company’s May 2016 convertible debt issuance. These costs are excluded because management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations, nor do the resulting charges recorded accurately reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are recorded.

A reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted non-GAAP financial measures is included as an attachment to this press release. When analyzing the Company’s operating performance and guidance investors should not consider non-GAAP measures as substitutable for the comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
