Akorn Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Akorn is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share are not GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of operations and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Akorn’s definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies. For a full reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income to GAAP net income, please see the attachments to this earnings release.

Core business revenue, as defined by the Company, is equal to total GAAP revenues, less revenue attributed to the Biologics & vaccines segment, which the Company exited during the quarter ended March 31, 2010. The Company believes that core business revenue is a meaningful indicator in that it helps investors to evaluate the Company’s revenue trends from its current reportable segments, excluding the impact of the Company’s exit from the biologics & vaccines segment, which it did not consider to be part of its core business.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net income, plus:
  • Interest income (expense), net
  • Provision for income taxes
  • Depreciation and amortization
  • Non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation expense, changes in the fair value of warrants, and deferred financing cost amortization
  • Other adjustments, such as equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint venture related to the sale of the joint venture's assets, amortization of the fair value adjustment to inventory acquired through business acquisitions, and Kilitch Drugs (India) Limited acquisition related expense

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful indicator, to both Company management and investors, of the past and expected ongoing operating performance of the Company. EBITDA is a commonly used and widely accepted measure of financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is deemed by the Company to be a useful performance indicator because it includes an add back of non-cash and non-recurring operating expenses which have little to no bearing on cash flows and may be subject to uncontrollable factors not reflective of the Company’s true operational performance (i.e. fair value adjustments to the carrying value of stock warrants liability).
