Elan Reports Second Quarter And First Half 2013 Financial Results

Elan Corporation, plc (NYSE:ELN) today reported its second quarter and first half 2013 financial results.

“We are focused squarely on the process of exploring a sale of the company as announced by our Board of Directors on June 14, 2013,” commented Mr. Kelly Martin, CEO, adding, “the Board of Directors and executive management are in complete alignment with regard to exploring all opportunities to maximize shareholder value.”

Mr. Martin further added that, “the collective work and effort over the previous years has produced a business platform that is highly unique across a number of tactical as well as strategic dimensions. We will continue to advance the process and communicate the outcome to the marketplace at the appropriate time.”

Mr. Nigel Clerkin, chief financial officer, said, “our second quarter results have been substantially impacted by the completion of the Tysabri transaction, the subsequent $1.0 billion share buyback, debt retirements and other transactions. Our net income for the quarter, of $2,288.7 million, reflects the gain recorded on the Tysabri transaction of $2,540.2 million, while our sharecount was reduced by approximately 15%. We remain in a very strong financial position, and ended the quarter with over $1.9 billion in cash and cash equivalents, and no debt.”

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. GAAP basis, Elan provides readers with Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure of operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss from continuing operations plus or minus net income or loss from discontinued operations, net interest expense, provision for or benefit from income taxes, depreciation and amortization of costs and revenue, share-based compensation, other net charges or gains, net loss on equity method investments and net charges on debt retirements. Adjusted EBITDA is not presented as, and should not be considered an alternative measure of operating results or cash flows from operations, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Elan’s management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the operating performance of Elan and its business and this measure is among the factors considered as a basis for Elan’s planning and forecasting for future periods. Elan believes Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of performance used by some investors, equity analysts and others to make informed investment decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is used as an analytical indicator of income generated to service debt and to fund capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to cash used for interest payments related to debt service requirements and does not reflect funds available for investment in the business of Elan or for other discretionary purposes. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by Elan and presented in this press release, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income/(loss) is set out in the table above titled, “Non-GAAP Financial Information Reconciliation Schedule”.
