Sinovac Reports Unaudited First Half of 2018 Financial Results

BEIJING, China, November 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 six months ended June 30, 2018.

Financial highlights

Ÿ Sales revenue for the first six months of 2018 was $122.5 million, compared to $66.9 million in the prior year period, an increase of 83.1%. Sales increased primarily due to revenue generated by the Company’s EV71 vaccine.

Ÿ Net income attributable to shareholders was $14.1 million, or $0.24 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income attributable to shareholders of $10.9 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

Business Highlights

Sales and Marketing

In the first half of 2018, sales were mainly generated from the EV71 vaccine. The increase of EV71 vaccine sales was primarily attributable to government advocacy regarding the benefits of this vaccine to the public. In March 2018, the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China (“NHFPC”) issued a notice to encourage vaccination to prevent hand, foot and mouth disease due to the expected high prevalence of this disease in 2018. In addition, since late 2017, Sinovac has been collaborating with third party companies to improve market coverage and penetration in the private sector of the Chinese market. As a result, the number of customers increased over 30% in the first half of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. Also in the first half of 2018, the marketing team of Sinovac expanded its activities, including academic promotion activities at the national, provincial, district, and county levels, which largely improved the awareness of Sinovac’s EV71 vaccine among professionals and consumers.

The Company does not expect any sales of seasonal influenza vaccine during the 2018-2019 flu season. As was announced in April 2018, production at the Company’s hepatitis A vaccine and flu vaccine bulk production site was suspended when a minority shareholder of Sinovac Beijing forcibly entered Sinovac Beijing’s corporate offices along with dozens of unnamed individuals in an attempt to wrongfully take control of Sinovac Beijing’s operations. As it was determined that the quality and safety of the vaccines could not be sufficiently verified to the Company’s high standards following the disruption, the vaccines in production at the time of the attack were destroyed. Since the attacks, the Company has verified the safety and quality of the vaccine production process, and is ready to resume production in anticipation of next year’s market demand. Sales of flu vaccine for the 2017-2018 flu season were $13.5 million.

Research and Development

Varicella Vaccine – Sinovac filed a production license application with the CFDA in November 2017; the CFDA’s Center of Drug Evaluation completed its review and provided comments to the Company. The Company is preparing supplementary documents as requested by the CFDA.

Sabin Inactivated Polio Vaccine (sIPV) – In April 2018, the phase III trial of the sIPV candidate developed by Sinovac was unblinded. The preliminary results showed that it was not inferior to the control vaccine group. In June 2018, a sequential vaccination schedule consisting of sIPV and two doses of bOPV was conducted. Dosing and blood sampling have been completed recently, and the Company is awaiting the results.

Quandrivalent Flu vaccine (QIV) – Sinovac is conducting a phase III clinical study of its QIV and expects to complete this study by the end of 2018.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States federal securities laws. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause such a difference include our inability to compete successfully in the competitive and rapidly changing marketplace in which we operate, failure to retain key employees, cancellation or delay of projects, disruptions to our operations, the results of any pending litigation, and adverse general economic conditions in China, the United States and elsewhere. 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. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. The Company assumes no obligation to update the forward-looking information contained in this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), Sinovac uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP EBITDA, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations and non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations.  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 release.

Sinovac believes that non-GAAP EBITDA, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations and non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain income or expenses that Sinovac includes in income from operations from continuing operations, net income from continuing operations and diluted EPS from continuing operations. Sinovac believes that non-GAAP EBITDA, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations and non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations 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 EBITDA, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations and non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to income from operations from continuing operations, net income from continuing operations, diluted EPS from continuing operations, 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 EBITDA represents income (loss) from continuing operations, 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 incomefrom continuing operationsrepresents net incomefrom continuing operationsbefore share-based compensation expenses, and foreign exchange gain or loss.

Non-GAAP diluted EPSfrom continuing operationsrepresents non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholdersfrom continuing operationsdivided 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.
