Patheon Reports Preliminary Unaudited First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

TORONTO, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Patheon Inc. (TSX: PTI), a leading provider of contract development and manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry, with recently acquired proprietary products, announced today preliminary unaudited fiscal 2014 first-quarter results. Based on its current expectations, Patheon anticipates the following results for its first-quarter ended January 31, 2014:

  • Revenues of approximately $266.7 million versus $213.5 million in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $36.4 million versus $19.8 million in the prior year.
  • Loss from continuing operations of approximately $0.1 million versus a loss of $51.4 million in the prior year.

Because Patheon's results of operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 have not yet been finalized, the preliminary results included in this press release are subject to change as a result of the period-end closing process and review of Patheon's financial statements by its independent registered public accounting firm. See "Caution Concerning Forward Looking Statements and Preliminary Financial Results." All currency is expressed in U.S. dollars.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
This press release includes the financial measure Adjusted EBITDA that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as loss from continuing operations before repositioning expenses, interest expense, foreign exchange losses reclassified from other comprehensive income (loss), refinancing expenses, acquisition and integration costs (including certain product returns and inventory write-offs recorded in gross profit), gains and losses on sale of capital assets, income taxes, asset impairment charges, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs related to Patheon's operational initiatives, purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related litigation expenses and other income and expenses. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to loss from continuing operations determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as an indicator of performance. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management as an internal measure of profitability. Patheon has included Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that this measure is used by certain investors to assess its financial performance before non-cash charges and certain costs that it does not believe are reflective of its underlying business.

Since non-GAAP measures do not have a standardized meaning, they may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Readers are cautioned that these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and that they should be considered only in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, loss from continuing operations determined in accordance with GAAP as indicators of performance and not as a substitute for, or superior to, operating cash flow as an indicator of liquidity, as applicable. These non-GAAP measures are subject to inherent limitations because (i) they do not reflect all of the expenses and cash flow associated with loss from continuing operations and operating cash flow, respectively, determined in accordance with GAAP and (ii) the composition of these non-GAAP measures involved the exercise of judgment by management. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their closest U.S. GAAP measures is included in this press release.

Caution Concerning Forward-Looking Statements and Preliminary Financial Results

This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect Patheon's expectations regarding its future growth, results of operations, performance (both operational and financial) and business prospects and opportunities. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. Wherever possible, words such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "forecasts", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "believes", "intends" and similar expressions or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "should", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved have been used to identify these forward-looking statements. Although the forward looking statements contained in this press release reflect Patheon's current assumptions based upon information currently available to it and based upon what Patheon believes to be reasonable assumptions, Patheon cannot be certain that actual results will be consistent with its expectations and other forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are provided in order to assist stakeholders in understanding management's expectations as of the date of this press release, and may not be suitable for other purposes. Patheon's current material assumptions include assumptions related to its operational excellence initiatives and transformation activities, customer volumes, regulatory compliance, foreign exchange rates, employee severance costs associated with termination, and projected integration savings related to the Banner acquisition. Forward-looking statements necessarily involve significant known and unknown risks, assumptions and uncertainties that may cause Patheon's actual results, performance, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, risks related to international operations and foreign currency fluctuations; customer demand for Patheon's services; regulatory matters affecting manufacturing and pharmaceutical development services; impacts of acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings and other strategic transactions (including Patheon's acquisition by JLL/Delta Patheon Holdings, L.P.) and Patheon's ability to achieve its intended objectives with respect to such transactions and to integrate businesses that it may acquire or combine with; implementation of Patheon's operational excellence initiatives and transformation activities; Patheon's ability to effectively transfer business between facilities; the global economic environment; Patheon's exposure to complex production issues; Patheon's substantial financial leverage; interest rate risks; potential environmental, health and safety liabilities; credit and customer concentration; competition; rapid technological change; product liability claims; intellectual property; the fact that Patheon has a majority shareholder that can exercise significant influence over it; supply arrangements; pension plans; derivative financial instruments; and Patheon's dependence upon key management, scientific and technical personnel. For additional information regarding risks and uncertainties that could affect Patheon's business, please see Item 1A "Risk Factors" of Patheon's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A (Amendment No. 1) for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2013 as further amended by Amendment No. 2 on Form 10-K/A, and its subsequent filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and the Canadian securities regulators. Although Patheon has attempted to identify important risks and factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors and risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this press release and, except as required by law, Patheon assumes no obligation to update or revise them to reflect new events or circumstances.

In addition, Patheon is currently undergoing its quarter-end closing and review process. Because Patheon's results of operations for the quarter ended January 31, 2014 have not yet been finalized, the preliminary results included in this press release are subject to change as a result of the period-end closing process and the review of Patheon's financial statements by its independent registered public accounting firm, Ernst & Young LLP. These changes may be material. The preliminary financial results included in this press release have been prepared by, and are the responsibility of, Patheon's management. Ernst & Young LLP has not completed its review of Patheon's first quarter 2014 financial statements, and accordingly, Ernst & Young LLP does not express an opinion or any form of assurance with respect to these preliminary financial results. These preliminary financial results are not necessarily indicative of results of future operations. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on Patheon's preliminary financial results. These preliminary financial results should be read in conjunction with Patheon's previously disclosed consolidated historical financial statements (and related notes).

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two.
