Repligen Announces Strategic Focus On Bioprocessing Business And Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: RGEN

Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ: RGEN) today reported financial results for its second quarter and year-to-date period ended June 30, 2012. In addition, the Company announced that it will focus its corporate strategy and resources on the growth of its core bioprocessing business, which achieved record sales during the quarter. As a result of this defined strategic focus, the Company will seek a development and commercialization partner for its pancreatic imaging product candidate, RG1068.

The Company reported total revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 of $15,524,000 compared to $7,654,000 for the same period in 2011. Revenue growth for the second quarter of 2012 was driven by the Company’s expanded bioprocessing business, which generated $11,659,000 in product revenue compared to $4,358,000 for the same period in 2011, an increase of 168%. Royalty and research revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, consisting primarily of royalty payments from Bristol-Myers Squibb on its U.S. sales of Orencia ®, was $3,865,000 compared to $3,295,000 for the same period in 2011. June 30, 2012 marks the end of the second fiscal quarter for which the Company is reporting consolidated financial results since its acquisition of Novozymes Biopharma Sweden AB (now Repligen Sweden AB) in December 2011.

“Our strong second quarter and year-to-date financial performance was highlighted by revenue gains in our recently expanded bioprocessing business,” said Walter C. Herlihy, Ph.D., President and CEO of Repligen. “The successful integration of Repligen Sweden, our longstanding expertise in bioprocessing product development and manufacturing, and the continued strength in the global market for biologic drugs were key factors in our decision to focus corporate strategy and resources on bioprocessing. We are committed to building Repligen into a sustainably profitable, best-in-class life sciences company focused on providing high-value consumables used to manufacture biologics.”

Operating expenses for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 were $14,206,000 compared to $7,775,000 for the same period in 2011, an increase of $6,431,000 or 83%. These operating expenses included an increase in cost of product revenue of $5,792,000 due to higher sales, and an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses of $1,129,000 compared to the same three-month period in 2011. These increases were primarily due to the addition of Repligen Sweden AB in December 2011. In addition, research and development expenses decreased by $612,000 during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. Expenses for the second quarter included $511,000 for employee salary and severance associated with our cost reduction initiatives at Repligen Sweden. Net income for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 was $1,570,000 or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $56,000 or $0.00 per diluted share for the same period in 2011. Cash and investments as of June 30, 2012 were $39,232,000 compared to $36,025,000 as of December 31, 2011.
