Procaps Group Reports Record Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Procaps Group (NASDAQ: PROC), a leading integrated international healthcare and pharmaceutical company, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Key Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

Net revenues increased by $27.5 million, or 35%, to $106.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $79.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, driven by strong demand across our branded Rx and OTC businesses in both our existing products as well as from our continued rollout of new product launches.

  • Gross profit increased by 14.5 million, or 30%, to $62.3 million (yielding a gross margin of 58%) for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $47.8 million (yielding a gross margin of 60%) for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
  • Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $36.9 million, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in net loss was primarily attributable to a one-time, non-cash adjustment of $44 million to reflect the termination, on the closing of the business combination, of the put options previously granted to certain shareholders.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased by 27% to $24.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $19.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

    • Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 22.9% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to 24.3% for the three months ended September 30,2020.
  • LTM Adjusted EBITDA for the period ended September 30, 2021 was approximately $100.3 million, representing a LTM Adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 25%.
  • Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio of approximately 1.2x incorporating the $100 million of cash balance as of September 30, 2021.
  • Cash totaled $100.2 million at September 30, 2021, as compared to $4.2 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in cash is expected to fund future growth opportunities.

Key Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021

  • Net revenues increased by $69.9 million, or 33%, to $283.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $213.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
  • Net loss for the nine months ended September 2021 was $54.6 million, compared to a net loss of $19.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in net loss was primarily attributable to a one-time, non-cash adjustment of $59 million to reflect the termination, on the closing of the business combination, of the put options previously granted to certain shareholders and the valuation of such put options.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased by 38% to $57.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $41.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Management Commentary

“The third quarter of 2021 was highlighted by the achievement of a successful business combination with Union Acquisition Corp. II (“LATN”) and the listing of our ordinary shares on the Nasdaq, along with continued financial and operational momentum,” said Ruben Minski, Procaps Group’s Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The resurgence in the market with the re-opening of the economy, rapid ramp-up of new product launches, continued roll-out of products into new geographic areas and measured improvements to our inventory rotations combined to deliver 35% revenue growth during the quarter, including double-digit increases in four out of five of our business units.

“The Procaps Colombia, CAN and CASAND business units had the highest growth among our business units as a result of increased demand across the board for a variety of products, including both Rx and OTC products, and new product launches. Likewise, our Diabetrics business unit experienced strong growth during the third quarter of 2021 compared to the previous quarter.

“As we look to further our growth initiatives, we believe the new capital from our business combination has positioned us to execute a multi-prong growth strategy that we expect will continue to deliver double-digit growth in our core markets with strong cash generation to the bottom line. We are now further enabled to focus on strategic roll-ups and consolidation in the region that we believe will drive an accelerated competitive position and value creation.

“In our B2B segment, we expect to see growth from both our existing portfolio and product pipeline and in our B2C segment, we anticipate growth initiatives from our existing portfolio and from new products focused on current therapeutic areas in chronic diseases such as pain relief, immunology, cardiology, respiratory and dermatology, and the internationalization of our existing portfolio, with on-going efforts to expand our footprint of successful products outside of Colombia. Our internationalization strategy and on-going efforts to expand our footprint of successful products outside of Colombia continues to be one of our primary focuses, with a return to trade fairs and over 67 products internationalized during the quarter. We believe our company-wide product pipeline, with an estimate of over 600 product launches in the next three years, will provide the support for our growth in the next few years.

“The quarter’s accomplishments and strong financial results are helping to accelerate the delivery of our innovative pharmaceutical solutions and drive new expansion initiatives that we believe will enable us to increase our market share of the approximately $58 billion pharmaceutical market in Latin America,” concluded Minski.

Chief Financial Officer Patricio Vargas commented: “As a result of our business combination, there were a number of one-time charges that affected our bottom line, and we are happy to report that they are extinguished and now reflect positive total equity on the balance sheet. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, finance expenses totaled $79 million, of which $23 million was related to finance expenses accrued for the put options held by certain shareholders and $36 million represented a one-time expense for the termination of put options held by certain shareholders in connection with the recently closed business combination. Moreover, classifying and extinguishing these derivatives enables the Company to articulate a cleaner financial profile in subsequent quarters as we move closer toward positive net income operations. Considering the favorable demand conditions that we have observed in the different markets we operate, we have decided to increase our investments in marketing and R&D, which we believe will result in further growth in 2022. We look forward to reviewing these numbers and all of the positive operational metrics since the closing of our business combination on our upcoming business update conference call next week,” concluded Vargas.

The increase in net revenue was attributed to growth across all SBUs.

  • Procaps Colombia

    • Pharmaceutical market in Colombia saw an increase in sales of 18.8% during the three months ended September 30, 2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily as a result of the re-opening of economy in Colombia in general. The 50% growth in net revenue of the Procaps Colombia business during the three months ended September 30, 2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020 is primarily due to the growth of the Ethical businesses by 37.4%, generics by 38.2% and the Institutional market by 89%.
  • Nextgel

    • The 3% growth in net revenue for the three months ended September 30,2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020 in this business unit was driven by strong demand from our CDMO business from third parties, and the launch of new products in Brazil as well as new products in our Funtrition (gummies) line. This increase in demand was partially offset by certain logistics issues that affected our supply chain as a result of the global supply chain crisis. Nextgel experienced a net revenue growth of approximately 9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the nine months ended September 30,2020.
  • Central America North (CAN)

    • Our strategic decision to lower inventory levels from distributors and increase our point of sales penetration and cost to serve, as well as effective marketing strategies, have resulted in increase in net revenues of 84% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2021. Additionally, the region experienced an increase in demand of both Rx and OTC products, which contributed to the increase in net revenue. On a year-to-date basis through the nine months ended September 30, 2021, CAN experienced net revenue growth of approximately 16% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
  • Central America South and Andean Region (CASAND)

    • The 67% growth in net revenue for the three months ended September 30,2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, was primarily due to improvements in inventory turnover from distributor and sales channels, the rollout of new products in the region, the further development of new products and the continued strengthening of our existing brands in key growth markets.
  • Diabetrics

    • Increased demand for our core Diabetrics products resulted in a net revenue growth of 25% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 when compared to the three months ended September 30,2020 primarily as a result of the increase in the demand for our product portfolio and the expansion of our products offering in this segment to a more complete diabetes solution focus. Additionally, in what constitutes our first international rollout for this business unit, we launched diabetes therapeutic solutions and medical devices in El Salvador in April 2021, which contributed to our increased sales for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Gross profit increased by 30% to $62.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $47.8 million for three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily attributable to strong topline growth.

Gross margin decreased 200 basis points to 58% in the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to 60% in the three months ended September 30, 2020. The slight decrease in gross margin resulted from increased sales in Clinical Specialties due to increased demand related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and increased sales of OTC products in CAN, both of which have lower margins than other business lines.

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $36.9 million, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in net loss was primarily attributable to a one-time, non-cash adjustment of $44 million to reflect the termination, on the closing of the business combination, of the put options previously granted to certain shareholders.

See below under the heading “Interim Statement of Changes in Equity” for a table that reconciles the termination of put options from liability to equity on the Company’s balance sheet. As of December 31, 2020, the Company reported total equity (deficit) of ($254.7 million) and due to the reconciliation post business combination, the Company reported total equity of $36.3 million as of September 30, 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by 27% to $24.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $19.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was driven by the strong demand across branded Rx and OTC businesses from both our existing products as well as from our continued rollout of new product launches.

See below under the heading “Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures” for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of net income, which the Company believes is the most comparable IFRS measure, to Adjusted EBITDA.

Total net debt as of September 30, 2021, totaled 118.5 million, of which approximately 47% consisted of long-term obligations. Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio as of September 30, 2021 was 1.2x.

Cash totaled $100.2 million at September 30, 2021, compared to $4.2 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in cash during year is a result of a net of $100.0 million in cash proceeds related to the closing of the business combination with Union Acquisition Corp. II.

Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Our management uses and discloses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA, LTM Adjusted EBITDA margin and Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio, which are non-IFRS financial information to assess our operating performance across periods and for business planning purposes. We believe the presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is useful to investors as it provides additional information to facilitate comparisons of historical operating results, identify trends in our underlying operating results and provide additional insight and transparency on how we evaluate our business. These non-IFRS measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and should be viewed as supplemental and in addition to our financial information presented in accordance with IFRS.

We define EBITDA as profit (loss) for the period before interest expense, net, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude certain isolated costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, transaction expenses related to the business combination with Union Acquisition Corp. II, certain costs related to business transformation initiatives, certain foreign currency translation adjustments and certain other finance costs adjustments. We also report Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue as an additional measure so investors may evaluate our Adjusted EBITDA margins. None of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA margin are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or IFRS and are non-IFRS financial measures.

We use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio for operational and financial decision-making and believe these measures are useful in evaluating our performance because they eliminate certain items that we do not consider indicators of our operating performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio are also used by many of our investors and other interested parties in evaluating our operational and financial performance across reporting periods. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio provides useful information to investors by allowing an understanding of key measures that we use internally for operational decision-making, budgeting, evaluating acquisition targets, and assessing our operating performance.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio are not recognized terms under IFRS and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow statement data. These measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

Because non-IFRS financial measures are not standardized, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt-to-LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. It therefore may not be possible to compare our use these non-IFRS financial measures with those used by other companies.

The following table contains a reconciliation of profit for the period to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin for the periods presented. Procaps Group is unable to present a reconciliation of its third quarter 2021 net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance because management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of such measures. Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on this information.
