DALLAS, Aug. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) (“SWK” or the “Company”), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced its second quarter 2019 financial results.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights:

  • Reported total revenues of $5.7 million for the quarter, compared to $6.8 million for the second quarter 2018.
  • Reported non-GAAP adjusted consolidated net income of approximately $4.3 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the quarter, as compared to $5.6 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2018.
  • Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables and corporate debt securities) were approximately $169.7 million as of June 30, 2019, compared to $167.1 million as of December 31, 2018.

“During the quarter, SWK celebrated the seventh anniversary of the launch of our life science specialty finance business. Since the quarter ended June 30, 2012, we have doubled our book value per share, generating an approximate 11 percent annual CAGR in the BVPS over that time span. Our strategy has produced solid returns for our shareholders in 2019, with the portfolio generating nearly $1.00 per share in cash flow from operations during the first six months of the year,” stated Winston Black, Chief Executive Officer of SWK. “Consistent with our prior comments regarding our opportunity set, our pipeline remains robust with highly attractive opportunities. We look forward to announcing the closing of further value-creating transactions over the balance of the year.”

Note:

  • All references to growth rate percentages and shares compare the results for the period to those of the comparable prior year period.

  • The Company reports its financial results in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”).  However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing the Company’s ongoing performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s non-GAAP financial information does not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance.

  • Non-GAAP adjusted consolidated net income and its components and Non-GAAP adjusted basic and diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for GAAP net income and its components and basic and diluted EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, SWK stresses that these are non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components (unlike GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies.

Portfolio Overview

As of June 30, 2019, the Company's total income producing assets totaled $169.7 million as compared to $167.1 million as of December 31, 2018.

The remaining shares were purchased via private transactions.  The program terminated pursuant to its terms on May 31, 2019. 

Results of Operations

Revenues

SWK generated revenues of $5.7 million and $6.8 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively, which consisted of interest and fees earned on our finance receivables. The decrease in revenue is primarily due to a $3.7 million decrease in interest and fees earned on finance receivables that were either paid off or paid down since the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The revenue decrease was offset by a $2.7 million increase in interest and fees earned on new and existing finance receivables.

Provision for Credit Losses and Impairment Expense

SWK did not recognize any credit loss provision or impairment expense during the three-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation, stock-based compensation and related costs for management, staff, Board of Directors, legal and audit expenses, and corporate governance. General and administrative expenses increased to $1.3 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 from $1.2 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2018, which was primarily due to an increase in the performance-based bonus accrual.

Other Income (Expense), Net

Other income for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 reflected a net fair market value gain of $0.7 million on our warrant derivatives. Other income for the three-month period ended June 30, 2018, reflected a net fair market value loss of $0.2 million on our warrant derivatives and a net fair market value loss of $0.5 million on our equity securities.

Income Tax Expense

SWK recognized deferred income tax expense of $0.7 million and $1.1 million during the three-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. The decrease in deferred income tax expense was primarily due to the change in fair value of our warrant assets and equity securities, which created a lower effective tax rate for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2019, SWK held $27.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $20.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2018. The primary driver of the net increase in our cash balance was $43.7 million of interest, fees, and principal payments generated by our finance receivables, which includes $27.7 million received from the payoff of two terms loans. The increase in our cash balance was offset by $32.3 million, net of origination costs and fees, of new and add-on investment funding.

As of June 30, 2019, SWK had $17.4 million of unfunded commitments outstanding.

Adjusted Net Income

Net income in accordance with GAAP for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, was $4.3 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. The table below eliminates provisions for income taxes, and non-cash mark-to-market changes on warrant assets and SWK's warrant.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of SWK’s reported (GAAP) consolidated net income to SWK’s adjusted consolidated net income (Non-GAAP) for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018:

In the presentation above, management has deducted the following non-cash items: (i) fair-market value of warrants as mark to market changes are non-cash, and (ii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income.
