Elan Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Financial Results

Elan Corporation, plc today reported its fourth quarter and full-year 2012 financial results.

Mr Kelly Martin, CEO said “2012 was a year in which we continued to make significant progress and adjustments in our business. We achieved top line revenue growth of 13%; advanced ELND005 into two Phase 2 programs for neuropsychiatry; strengthened our balance sheet through refinancing and sale of our Alkermes shares; we remained disciplined with our cost structure and investment decisions. In addition, we demerged our pathology-based drug discovery platform into a new listed company, Prothena Corporation plc, enabling shareholders investment choice.”

Mr Martin added “The Tysabri business restructuring announced earlier today with our collaborator Biogen Idec provides for a meaningful de-risking of the business. With $3.25 billion in upfront cash and double digit tiered royalties, we have created the opportunity to diversify our business across all areas of the industry value chain with tax efficient capital and cash flow. As we move through 2013 and beyond, the close of the Tysabri transaction gives us strategic flexibility to add to the shareholder value proposition and investment thesis by enabling continued prudent and risk justified investment in our pipeline, selectively adding commercial and clinical assets, and exploring the return of capital to shareholders at the appropriate time and in the right manner.”

Mr. Nigel Clerkin, chief financial officer, said, “We were pleased to have delivered on all of our financial guidance for 2012. The number of patients taking Tysabri grew by 12% in 2012, and this strong growth drove our recorded Tysabri revenues to $1.2 billion for the year. Including Tysabri, our Adjusted EBITDA increased by over 30% in 2012 to $220 million, well ahead of our goal of $200 million. We successfully refinanced our debt, extending the maturity and lowering the annual interest expense by one-third. We also recently sold our remaining shareholding in Alkermes, bringing the total EDT sale proceeds to $1.05 billion.”
