HAWTHORNE, N.Y., July 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE: TARO) ("Taro") today provided unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Quarter ended June 30, 2021 Highlights - compared to Quarter ended June 30, 2020

  • Net sales increased $29.5 million, or 25.1%, to $147.1 million.

  • Gross profit increased $12.8 million to $77.7 million (52.8% of net sales compared to 55.2%).

  • Research and development expenses of $13.0 million were in line with the prior year quarter.

  • Selling, marketing, general and administrative expenses of $24.0 million, increased $1.7 million.

  • Settlements and loss contingencies of $60.0 million reflect an additional legal contingency provision related to ongoing multi-jurisdiction civil antitrust matters. In the prior year quarter, settlements and loss contingencies of $478.9 million reflects the one-time settlement charge of $418.9 million related to the global resolution of the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations into the U.S. generic pharmaceutical industry; and a provision of $60.0 million related to the multi-jurisdiction civil antitrust matters; however, there can be no assurance as to the ultimate outcome.

  • Operating loss of $(19.2) million compared to $(449.2) million. Excluding the settlement and loss contingencies charges in both periods, operating income was $40.8 million as compared to $29.8 million, an increase of $11.0 million, and as a percentage of net sales was 27.8% as compared to 25.3%.

  • Interest and other financial income of $3.0 million decreased $4.3 million, reflecting the continuing lower global interest rate environment.

  • Foreign Exchange expense of $0.3 million compared to income of $0.2 million in the comparable quarter ─ an unfavorable impact of $0.5 million.

  • Tax expense of $2.7 million compared to $8.9 million. Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges, the effective tax rate for the quarter was 6.1% as compared to 23.4%. The reduced tax rate is primarily the result of acquired net operating losses.

  • Net loss attributable to Taro was $(18.8) million as compared to $(434.9) million. Excluding the settlement and loss contingencies charges in both periods, net income was $41.2 million compared to $29.0 million. Diluted loss per share for the quarter was $(0.50) as compared to $(11.37). Excluding the settlement and loss contingencies charges in the both periods, diluted earnings per share was $1.09 as compared to $0.76.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash flow provided by operations was $44.0 million compared to $64.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

  • As of June 30, 2021, cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities (both short and long-term) of $1.59 billion increased $13.5 million from March 31, 2021. Cash and cash equivalents reflects the impact from the share repurchases of $18.3 million.

Mr. Uday Baldota, Taro’s CEO stated, "We are satisfied with this quarters’ results though we remain cautiously optimistic given the continuing challenging generic landscape and the uncertainty in the marketplace brought about by the recent uptick in the COVID cases. Our R&D investment stays on course and we continue to explore inorganic strategic growth opportunities."

FDA Approvals and Filings

The Company recently received an approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for the Abbreviated New Drug Application ("ANDA"), Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Lotion, 1%. The Company currently has a total of nineteen ANDAs awaiting FDA approval, including five tentative approvals.

Share Repurchase Program – Maximizing Shareholder Value

On November 4, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved a share repurchase of ordinary shares up to $300 million. The repurchase authorization enables the Company to purchase its ordinary shares from time to time through open market purchases (including Rule 10b5-1 trading plans), privately negotiated transactions, tender offer or other means, in accordance with applicable securities laws and other regulations. No time period has been set for the repurchase program, and any such program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 254,717 shares at an average price of $73.61. In total, through June 30, 2021, the Company has repurchased 586,750 shares at an average price of $74.53.

Form 20-F Filings with the SEC

On June 17, 2021, Taro filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021.
