Amneal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: AMRX) (“Amneal” or the “Company”) today announced certain unaudited preliminary financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023. The Company also raised its financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2023, which was most recently issued on August 4, 2023. The Company plans to report actual third quarter 2023 financial results on November 7, 2023.

Unaudited Preliminary Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2023

  • Net revenue of $610 million to $620 million, an increase of approximately 13% compared to the third quarter of 2022
  • Income before income taxes of $18 million to $28 million, which is substantially higher compared to the third quarter of 2022
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $150 million to $155 million, an increase of approximately 21% compared to the third quarter of 2022
  • Net leverage(1) decreased to approximately 4.6x as of September 30, 2023, compared to 5.3x as of December 31, 2022, due to higher profitability and continued reduction in debt

“We are pleased to again raise our full year guidance following double-digit revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth in the third quarter. Our strong performance reflects the significant momentum across our business, driven by Amneal’s disciplined execution, continued portfolio diversification, steady cadence of new Generics launches and rapidly increasing uptake of our biosimilars. Specialty is also growing, with IPX203 on-track for potential 2024 launch. AvKARE, our distribution business, continues to deliver strong top and bottom-line growth. Importantly, 2023 is on track to mark Amneal’s fourth consecutive year of revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth, underscoring the strength of our strategy, disciplined approach to capital allocation as we further deleverage, and commitment to shareholder value creation,” said Chirag and Chintu Patel, Co-Chief Executive Officers and Co-Founders.

Amneal's preliminary financial results are based on the most recent information available to the Company’s management. Such preliminary financial results are forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ from these preliminary financial results due to the completion of the Company’s financial close procedures, final accounting adjustments and other developments that may arise between the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the time that financial results for the third quarter of 2023 are finalized, and such differences may be material. The preliminary financial results for the third quarter of 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved in any future period.

Amneal’s 2023 estimates are based on management’s current expectations, including with respect to prescription trends, pricing levels, the timing of future product launches, the costs incurred and benefits realized of restructuring activities, and our long-term strategy. The Company’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company cannot provide a reconciliation between non-GAAP projections and the most directly comparable measures in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable efforts because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items required for the reconciliation. The items include, but are not limited to, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring expenses and benefits, asset impairments, legal settlements, and other gains and losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on GAAP reported results.

Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained herein, regarding matters that are not historical facts, may be forward-looking statements (as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995).

The forward-looking statements contained herein are also subject generally to other risks and uncertainties that are described from time to time in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including under Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in its subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted EPS, net debt, and net leverage, which are intended as supplemental measures of the Company’s performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP. Net debt reflects current and long-term indebtedness less cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted diluted EPS reflects diluted earnings per share based on adjusted net income, which is net income (loss) adjusted to (A) exclude (i) non-cash interest, (ii) GAAP (benefit from) provision for income taxes, (iii) amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation, (v) acquisition, site closure expenses, and idle facility expenses, (vi) restructuring and other charges, (vii) loss on refinancing, (viii) charges related to legal matters, including interest, net, (ix) asset impairment charges, (x) regulatory approval milestones, (xi) change in fair value of contingent consideration, (xii) insurance recoveries for property losses and associated expenses, (xiii) increase in tax receivable agreement liability, (xiv) system implementation expenses and (xv) net income attributable to non-controlling interests not associated with class B common stock, and (B) include non-GAAP provision for income taxes. Non-GAAP adjusted EPS is calculated assuming the weighted average diluted shares outstanding of class A and class B common stock under the if-converted method. Net leverage is calculated as the total outstanding principal on the Company's debt less cash and cash equivalents, divided by adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve months or year ended, as applicable.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate and manage the Company’s operations and to better understand its business because they facilitate a comparative assessment of the Company’s operating performance relative to its performance based on results calculated under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures also isolate the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance and eliminate certain charges that management believes do not reflect the Company’s operations and underlying operational performance. The compensation committee of the Company’s board of directors also uses certain of these measures to evaluate management’s performance and set its compensation. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures also provide useful information to investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and operating results facilitates an evaluation of the financial performance of the Company and its operations on a consistent basis. Providing this information therefore allows investors to make independent assessments of the Company’s financial performance, results of operations and trends while viewing the information through the eyes of management.

These non-GAAP measures are subject to limitations. The non-GAAP measures presented in this release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies because other companies may not calculate one or more in the same manner. Additionally, the non-GAAP performance measures exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements; do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; and do not reflect interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on debt. Further, our historical adjusted results are not intended to project our adjusted results of operations or financial position for any future period. To compensate for these limitations, management presents and considers these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP results; no non-GAAP measure should be considered in isolation from or as alternatives to any measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Readers should review the reconciliations included below, and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

A reconciliation of each historical non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is set forth below.
