BEIJING

Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (NASDAQ: SVA) (“Sinovac” or the “Company”), a leading provider of biopharmaceutical products in China, announced today its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2019 Financial Summary

  • Sales for the third quarter of 2019 were $64.3 million, an increase of 19.3% from $53.9 million in the prior year period.
  • Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, were $164.9 million, a decrease of 6.5% from $176.4 million in the prior year period. $8.9 million of this decrease is attributable to changes in the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and Chinese renminbi.
  • Operating income for the third quarter decreased 15.7% from the prior year period due to a change in sales mix, with a greater proportion of revenue generated from the lower-margin influenza vaccine.
  • Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, decreased 11.7% from the prior year period due to lower sales.
  • The Company posted $6.3 million of net income attributable to common shareholders, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share in the third quarter, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $8.9 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.
  • The Company posted $18.1 million of net income attributable to common shareholders, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $22.9 million, or $0.37 per basic and $0.36 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President, and CEO of Sinovac, commented, “We delivered sales growth this quarter despite facing challenges from market demand for some of our vaccines and a lack of supply of certain products. We are pleased to report that during the quarter, Anflu, the seasonal influenza vaccine, was relaunched to the market after a one-year absence due to the manufacturing disruption orchestrated by the minority shareholder of our Beijing operation last year.”

“We have made strong progress in our pipeline development in 2019, and we expect the commercial launches of varicella, sIPV, and QIV in 2020. We also welcome the implementation of the new vaccine legislation, which will ultimately benefit high-quality vaccine manufacturers such as Sinovac as well as public health in China,” Mr. Yin concluded.

Pipeline Development

Varicella –The Company filed an application for a production license for its varicella vaccine with the National Medical Products Administration (“NMPA”), previously known as the China State Food and Drug Administration, in November 2017. The site inspection by the NMPA in July 2019 was successfully passed. The Company expects the license to be issued in early 2020.

23-valent Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (or PPV-23) – The Company submitted its application for a production license in 2017. In 2018, the NMPA requested a supplementary submission. The technical review by NMPA was completed at the end of September and a notice of site inspection was issued to the Company. The on-site inspection is currently being prepared. The Company expects the license to be issued in 2021.

Quadrivalent influenza vaccine (or QIV) – The Company filed an application with the NMPA for a production license for the QIV vaccine in March 2019. Preliminary questions and answers have been submitted. Sinovac’s application is currently under review, and the Company expects the production license to be issued in 2020.

Sabin Inactivated Polio vaccine (or sIPV) – The production license application for the sIPV vaccine was accepted by the NMPA in January 2019. In March 2019, given the high demand for effective polio vaccines, the application was granted fast track review. Currently, the application is under review. The Company expects the license to be issued in 2020.

Sales for the third quarter of 2019 were $64.3 million, an increase of 19.3% from $53.9 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to higher sales of influenza vaccines.

The lack of Bilive® sales is still attributed to the suspended production of the product, which was due to a lack of supply of the hepatitis B vaccine from the Company’s sole supplier.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2019 was $54.0 million compared to gross profit of $49.3 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 83.9% compared to 91.4% in the prior year period. The decrease of gross margin was due to a change of sales mix, primarily caused by increased sales of the lower-margin influenza vaccine.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2019 were $34.4 million compared to $28.5 million in the prior year period. The Company incurred higher selling expenses in the third quarter of 2019 due to higher sales and marketing activities.

R&D expenses in the third quarter of 2019 were $5.7 million, compared to $4.7 million in the prior year period, as the Company continued to invest in the development of its pipeline of product candidates, including sIPV, PPV, and the varicella vaccine.

Net income in the third quarter of 2019 was $11.7 million compared to $13.2 million in the prior year period. Net income decreased as a higher proportion of revenue was generated from the lower-margin influenza vaccines.

Net income attributable to common shareholders was $6.3 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $8.9 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

As the Company announced on February 22, 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors determined that certain shareholders became “Acquiring Persons,” as defined in the Company’s Rights Agreement (“Rights Agreement”), and a “Trigger Event” occurred under the Rights Agreement. As a result, new common and preferred shares of the Company were issued. Without the effect of the implementation of the Rights Agreement and the newly issued common and preferred shares, basic and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2019 would be $0.11.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $15.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $18.4 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2019 was $12.5 million compared to $14.9 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2019 were $0.07 per share compared to $0.14 per share in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2019 excluding the implementation of the Rights Agreement and the newly issued common and preferred shares would be $0.12 per share. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures are included at the end of this earnings announcement.

Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, were $164.9 million, a decrease of 6.5% from $176.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease was due to zero sales of Bilive® and lower sales in Inlive®. The sales decrease was partly offset by sales increases in Healive®, the influenza vaccine, and the mumps vaccine. In addition, $8.9 million of the decline in sales for the first nine months of 2019 were attributable to the depreciation of the Chinese renminbi against the U.S. dollar.

Gross profit in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, was $144.7 million compared to gross profit of $158.4 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 87.7% compared to 89.8% in the prior year period. The decrease of gross margin was due to a change in sales mix, with a higher proportion of sales of the influenza vaccine, which has a lower profit margin.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, were $88.2 million compared to $96.3 million in the prior year period. The Company incurred lower legal and consulting fees associated with the Company’s ongoing litigation matters in the 2019 period.

R&D expenses in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, were $16.5 million compared to $14.8 million in the prior year period.

Net income in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, was $32.4 million compared to $35.8 million in the prior year period. Net income decreased primarily due to lower revenue.

Net income attributable to common shareholders was $18.1 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $22.9 million, or $0.37 per basic and $0.36 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Excluding the implementation of the Rights Agreement, as described above, and the newly issued common and preferred shares, basic and diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, would be $0.31 and $0.30, respectively.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $45.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $52.6 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP net income in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, was $34.5 million compared to $38.9 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, were $0.21 per share compared to $0.41 per share in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the nine months ended September 30, 2019, excluding the implementation of the Rights Agreement and the newly issued common and preferred shares, would be $0.32 per share. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures are included at the end of this earnings announcement.

As of September 30, 2019, cash and cash equivalents totaled $156.7 million compared to $158.2 million as of December 31, 2018. In the nine months ended September 30, 2019, net cash provided by operating activities was $12.6 million, net cash used in investing activities was $10.2 million, and net cash used in financing activities was $1.0 million, including loan repayment of $3.3 million. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $3.7 million in bank loans due within one year. The Company expects that its current cash position will be able to support its operations for at least the next 12 months.

The Company’s Interim Financial Statements are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, the Interim Financial Statements have not been audited or reviewed by the Company’s independent registered accounting firm.

Legal Proceedings

As previously disclosed by the Company, on March 13, 2018, 1Globe Capital LLC (“1Globe”) filed a complaint against the Company in the Antigua Court. The trial of the matter took place from December 3 to 5, 2018. On December 19, 2018, the Antigua judge handed down his judgment (the “Antigua Judgment”), finding in the Company’s favor in full, dismissing 1Globe’s claim and declaring that the Rights Agreement was validly adopted as a matter of Antigua law. On January 29, 2019, 1Globe filed a Notice of Appeal against the Antigua Judgment. On March 4, 2019, 1Globe filed an application for urgent interim relief, seeking an injunction to prevent the Company from continuing to implement its Rights Agreement until the resolution of the appeal. This application was heard on April 4, 2019, at which the Court of Appeal issued an order restraining the Company from operating the Rights Agreement in any way that affects 1Globe’s rights or shareholding or otherwise distributing the exchange shares to the Company’s shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until after the determination of the appeal (the “Exchange Shares”). 1Globe’s appeal against the Antigua Judgment was heard in the week of September 16, 2019, and the appeal decision is now pending.

As disclosed previously, on March 5, 2018, the Company filed a lawsuit in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware seeking a determination whether 1Globe, the Chiang Li Family, OrbiMed Advisors, LLC and certain other shareholders of the Company had triggered the Rights Agreement. On April 12, 2018, 1Globe filed an amended answer to the Company’s complaint, counterclaims, and a third-party complaint against the Company and Mr. Weidong Yin alleging, among other allegations, that the Rights Agreement is not valid. On March 6, 2019, the Delaware Chancery Court entered a status quo order providing that the Company not distribute any of the Exchange Shares to the Company’s shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until the final disposition of the pending Delaware litigation or further order of the Court. On April 8, 2019, the Delaware Chancery Court stayed the Delaware litigation pending the outcome of 1Globe’s appeal of the Antigua Judgment.

Status of Exchange Shares and Trading in the Company’s Shares

As a result of the pending legal proceedings described above, the Exchange Shares are expected to remain in a trust for the benefit of the Company’s shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until, at least, the conclusion of the appeal against the Antigua Judgment and final disposition of the Delaware litigation or further order of the Delaware Chancery Court. The Exchange Shares remain issued and outstanding. The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC implemented a halt on trading of the Company’s common shares at the time of issuance of the Exchange Shares to the trust and the Company is currently unable to estimate when trading will resume, or whether Nasdaq will take any additional action regarding the trading of the Company’s common shares.

These risks and other factors include those listed under “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our Annual Report on Form 20-F as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, Sinovac uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the table captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures” in this results announcement.

Sinovac believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain income or expenses that Sinovac includes in net income and diluted EPS. Sinovac believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS provide useful information about its core operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to income from operations, net income, diluted EPS, or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of Sinovac’s operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to our data.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net income and excludes interest and financing expenses, interest income, net other income (expenses) and income tax benefit (expenses), and certain non-cash expenses, consisting of share-based compensation expenses, amortization and depreciation that Sinovac does not believe are reflective of the core operating performance during the periods presented.

Non-GAAP net income represents net income before share-based compensation expenses and foreign exchange gain or loss.

Non-GAAP diluted EPS represents non-GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods on a diluted basis, including accounting for the effect of the assumed conversion of options.
