Lantheus Holdings, Inc. Reports 2016 Third Quarter Financial Results

Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:LNTH), parent company of Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc. ("LMI"), a global leader in the development, manufacture and commercialization of innovative diagnostic imaging agents and products, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

The Company's worldwide revenue for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $73.1 million, compared to $74.1 million reported for the third quarter of 2015. Revenue results exceeded guidance of $68-$70 million, reflecting continued strong sales of DEFINITY, stable revenues from the U.S. nuclear products portfolio, and a decrease in International revenues as a result of the divestitures of its Canadian and Australian radiopharmacy businesses.

Net income for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $4.2 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to $5.4 million or $0.18 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2015. These results reflect the impact of a $1.4 million write-off of debt pay down related costs, a gain of $560,000 on the sale of assets and an increased share count attributable to an equity offering consummated during the quarter.

The Company's third quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release) was $18.7 million or 25.6% of reported revenue, compared to $19.4 million or 26.2% of reported revenue, in the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA results exceeded guidance of $14-$16 million, primarily driven by the strong performance of higher margin products in the U.S. market.

Mary Anne Heino, President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased with our solid financial results this quarter. A key contributor was DEFINITY, with 12.9% revenue growth worldwide driven primarily by continued strong U.S. performance. Consistent with our strategic priority of optimizing our capital structure, we raised approximately $40 million from a follow-on equity offering and used those proceeds, together with cash on the balance sheet, to reduce our debt by $55 million. Even with the debt reduction, we ended the quarter with a healthy $53 million of cash on the balance sheet."
