—Record revenue of $206.4 million for the quarter, and year-over-year growth of 45% as reported and 48% at constant currency

—Organic revenue growth of 44% for the quarter and base business growth of 37%

—Growth driven by combination of base business strength, COVID-related demand, and acquisition revenue

WALTHAM, Mass., April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ:RGEN), a life sciences company focused on bioprocessing technology leadership, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Provided in this press release are financial highlights for the quarter, updates to our financial guidance for the year 2022 and access information for today’s webcast and conference call.

Tony J. Hunt, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We delivered on another outstanding quarter for the company with over $206 million in revenue and 44% organic growth. We were especially pleased with the momentum in our base business, which delivered 37% growth in the quarter, led by impressive performance in our Filtration, Chromatography and Analytics businesses and strength in gene therapy revenue, which was up more than 100%. COVID-related programs accounted for 26% of our revenues in the first quarter. With slowing vaccination rates, we expect lower COVID-related demand and revenue this year, largely offset by increased projected demand for our base business products. Overall, our outlook for 2022 remains very positive; we have a strong order book coming out of the first quarter and are increasing our guidance for full year non-COVID business performance.”

Financial Guidance for 2022

Our financial guidance for the fiscal year 2022 is based on expectations for our existing business and includes the financial impact of our 2021 acquisitions of BioFlex Solutions (which closed on December 16, 2021), Avitide Inc. (which closed on September 20, 2021) and Polymem S.A. (which closed on July 1, 2021). The guidance below excludes the impact of potential additional acquisitions and future fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

FISCAL YEAR 2022 GUIDANCE:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $770-$800 million, a $30 million or approximate 4% reduction from our previous guidance of $800-$830 million. Our updated guidance reflects lower expected COVID-related demand, mainly in the second half of 2022, largely offset by increased projected demand for our base business products. Our base business revenue, which excludes inorganic acquisition revenue, is expected to increase by 24%-31%, an increase from our previous guidance of 20%-22%. We are now guiding to overall revenue growth of 15%-19% as reported, 17%-21% at constant currency, and organic growth of 14%-18%.

  • Gross margin is expected to be 57%-58% on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, consistent with our previous guidance.

  • Income from operations is expected to be in the range of $180-$186 million on a GAAP basis. Adjusted (non-GAAP) income from operations is expected to be in the range of $225-$231 million, compared to our previous guidance of $234-$240 million.

  • Net income is expected to be in the range of $139-$144 million on a GAAP basis. Adjusted (non-GAAP) net income is expected to be in the range of $177-$182 million, compared to our previous guidance of $185-$190 million. Our current guidance reflects a tax rate of 21% on adjusted pre-tax income.

  • Fully diluted GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $2.41-$2.49. Adjusted (non-GAAP) fully diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $3.07-$3.15, compared to our previous guidance of $3.21-$3.30.

Our non-GAAP guidance for the fiscal year 2022 excludes the following items:

  • $13.7 million estimated acquisition and integration expenses; $1.3 million in cost of product revenue, $0.7 million in R&D and $11.6 million in SG&A.

  • $26.4 million estimated intangible amortization expense in SG&A.

  • $1.8 million of amortization of debt issuance (Other income (expense)).

  • $5.1 million estimated contingent consideration related to estimated time value of money impacts from our 2021 Avitide acquisition.

Our non-GAAP guidance for the fiscal year 2022 includes:

  • An income tax increase of $8.9 million, representing the tax impact on acquisition and integration costs, intangible amortization and contingent consideration, and amortization of debt issuance costs.

All reconciliations of GAAP to adjusted (non-GAAP) guidance are detailed in the tables included later in this press release.

Conference Call
Repligen will host a conference call and webcast today, April 27, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. EST, to discuss first quarter 2022 financial results and corporate developments. The conference call will be accessible by dialing toll-free (844) 274-3999 for domestic callers or (412) 317-5607 for international callers. No passcode is required for the live call. In addition, a webcast will be accessible via the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website. Both the conference call and webcast will be archived for a period of time following the live event. The replay dial-in numbers are (877) 344-7529 from the U.S., (855) 669-9658 from Canada and (412) 317-0088 for international callers. Replay listeners must provide the passcode 6956973.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance
To supplement our financial statements, which are presented on the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance are included in this release: revenue growth rate at constant currency; adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin; adjusted income from operations; adjusted operating income and adjusted net income; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA); adjusted EBITDA; adjusted net income; adjusted net income per share; adjusted earnings per diluted share (EPS); adjusted cost of sales; adjusted R&D expense; and adjusted SG&A. The Company provides organic revenue growth rates in constant currency to exclude the impact of both foreign currency translation, and the impact of acquisition revenue for current year periods that have no prior year comparable, in order to facilitate a comparison of its current revenue performance to its past revenue performance. The Company provides revenue growth rates in constant currency in order to facilitate a comparison of its current revenue performance to its past revenue performance. To calculate revenue growth rates in constant currency, the Company converts actual net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and prior period.

The Company’s non-GAAP financial results and/or non-GAAP guidance exclude the impact of: acquisition related inventory step-up costs, acquisition and integration costs, intangible amortization costs, and contingent consideration expenses related to the Company’s acquisitions, amortization of debt issuance costs related to Company’s convertible debt, non-cash interest expense, loss on conversion of debt, and the related impact on tax of non-GAAP charges. These costs are excluded because management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations, nor do the resulting charges recorded accurately reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are recorded.

A reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted non-GAAP financial measures is included as an attachment to this press release. When analyzing the Company’s operating performance and guidance investors should not consider non-GAAP measures as substitutable for the comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

*Under ASU 2020-06, the Company is required to reflect the dilutive effect of the 2019 Notes by application of the if-converted method. Prior to filing the Second Supplemental Indenture on March 4, 2022, the Company had the option to settle the conversion of the 2019 Notes in cash, stock or a combination of the two. Therefore, from January 1, 2022 (the date the Company adopted ASU 2020-06) to March 4, 2022, the Company included 3,474,429 shares in the denominator of the weighted average diluted EPS calculation. Subsequent to March 4, 2022, after the Second Supplemental Indenture became effective, the Company irrevocably elected to settle the conversion principal in cash and only the premium in shares of the Company's common stock. Therefore, from March 5, 2022 to March 31, 2022 the Company included 980,525 shares in the denominator of the weighted average diluted EPS calculation. Under the if-converted method, the Company was also required to exclude amortization of debt issuance cost and interest charges applicable to the convertible debt from the numerator of the diluted EPS calculation for the period from January 1, 2022 to March 4, 2022, assuming the interest on convertible debt was never recognized for that period. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company excluded amortization of debt issuance costs and interest charges for the period January 1, 2022 to March 4, 2022 of $0.4 million (tax effected) from the numerator.
