Dallas, TX, August 16, 2020 – SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), a life sciences focused specialty finance company catering to small and mid-sized commercial-stage companies, today provided a business update and announced its financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

 

The second quarter continued what has been a strong start to the year for SWK, highlighted by strong specialty finance segment results, with our earning assets achieving an all-time high and an adjusted return of invested capital of 12.2% year to date,” stated Winston Black, Chairman and CEO of SWK. “The credit quality of our specialty finance portfolio is strong with no new non-accrual positions during the quarter, despite the extreme challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. We continue to dialogue with innovative companies seeking growth capital, and we believe the current market environment is favorable for SWK’s specialty finance strategy.”

 

Mr. Black continued, “Approximately one year ago, SWK acquired Enteris BioPharma, which represented an exciting opportunity to add a wholly-owned pharmaceutical IP platform that could generate a portfolio of milestone and royalty income to supplement our specialty finance business through monetizing its Peptelligence® platform. SWK has worked closely with Enteris to strengthen its operations and enhance its management team. The appointment of Rajiv Khosla, Ph.D., as Enteris’ new chief executive officer represents another crucial step in positioning Enteris for value creation. Dr. Khosla brings a wealth of experience and expertise from a distinguished career as an industry executive and consultant advising small biopharmaceutical companies, particularly in monetizing intellectual property. In the short time since being named CEO, Dr. Khosla has made a substantial imprint on Enteris’ business, instituting a more robust business development effort and prioritizing potential owned-pipeline opportunities that should enable the company to capture more value-creating opportunities and maximize the potential of its Peptelligence® platform. SWK anticipates providing a more detailed update on Enteris’ progress in early 2021.”

 

 

1 Excludes the deferred tax asset, intangible assets, goodwill, property and equipment and contingent consideration payable

 

   

 

 

 

Mr. Black concluded, “Expanding SWK’s investor base and trading liquidity remains a priority, and the addition of SWK to the Russell indexes was an important step towards achieving this goal. The Russell indexes are a widely utilized investment benchmark that should enable SWK to broaden its investor visibility and increase shareholder value.”

 

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

 

For the second quarter 2020, SWK reported total revenue of $7.9 million compared to $5.7 million for the second quarter 2019. Revenue primarily consisted of interest and fees earned on our finance receivables and royalty payments, as well as pharmaceutical development revenue generated by Enteris. The $2.2 million increase in revenue was primarily due to a $1.8 million net increase in royalty income and a $1.6 million increase in fees and interest earned on finance receivables, partially offset by a $1.3 million decrease in interest and fees earned on finance receivables that were paid off or paid down since the second quarter of 2019.

 

Income (loss) before taxes for the second quarter 2020 totaled ($0.1) million compared to $5.0 million for the same period of the previous year. The year over year decline is primarily driven by a $3.4 million expense for the amortization of Enteris-related intangibles and property and equipment depreciation, a $1.7 million operating loss for Enteris (excluding amortization and depreciation expense), $1.8 million expense due to the increase in the fair value of the Enteris acquisition-related contingent consideration, partially offset by a $1.0 million gain from fair market value increases of our equity-related positions.

 

The GAAP net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020 totaled $0.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $4.3 million, or $0.34 per diluted share for the second quarter 2019. For the second quarter 2020, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $4.0 million and non-GAAP adjusted net income for the specialty finance segment was $5.7 million, compared to $4.3 million for the second quarter 2019.

 

Income producing assets (defined as finance receivables and corporate debt securities) totaled $178.7 million as of June 30, 2020. This is a 5.3% increase compared with the income producing assets of $169.7 million as of June 30, 2019.

 

Book value per share was $18.06 as of June 30, 2020, which was negatively impacted during the quarter by a $0.26 per share expense related to the amortization of Enteris-related intangible assets, a $0.14 per share loss due to the increase in the fair value of the Enteris acquisition-related contingent consideration liability, and was partially offset by a $0.08 per share gain from mark-to-market changes on equity-related securities. Book value per share was $18.31 as of December 31, 2019 and $17.31 as of June 30, 2019. The increase in the Enteris acquisition-related contingent liability resulted from increased expectations regarding achievement of certain milestones associated with Enteris’ existing license agreements. Tangible financing book value per share totaled $15.05 as of June 30, 2020, which excludes the deferred tax asset, intangible assets, goodwill, property and equipment and contingent consideration payable. Management views tangible financing book value per share as a relevant metric to value the company’s core specialty finance business.

 

Tables detailing SWK’s financial performance for the second quarter 2020 are below.

 

   

 

 

  

Portfolio Status

 

During the second quarter 2020, the Company deployed $0.6 million in term loan financing to existing borrower Harrow Health. At the end of the second quarter 2020, the weighted average projected effective yield of the finance receivables portfolio was 13.2%, including non-accrual positions, versus 13.9% as of the end of the second quarter in the previous year. The projected effective yield is the rate at which income is expected to be recognized pursuant to the Company’s revenue recognition policies, if all payments are received pursuant to the terms of the finance receivables and excludes non-interest earning assets such as warrants and equity investments.

 

Total portfolio investment activity for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was as follows (in thousands):

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

This release includes non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP specialty finance net income, which are not metrics that are compliant with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP).

·Non-GAAP adjusted net income is adjusted for certain items (including (i) changes in the fair-market value of public equity-related assets and SWK's warrant assets as mark-to-market changes are non-cash, (ii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income, and (iii) depreciation and amortization expenses, primarily associated with the Enteris acquisition).
·In addition to the adjustments noted above, non-GAAP specialty finance net income also excludes Enteris operating losses.
·Tangible financing book value per share excludes the deferred tax asset, intangible assets, goodwill, Enteris PP&E, and contingent consideration associated with the Enteris transaction.

 

These non-GAAP measures may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies in our industry, as other companies may define such measures differently. Management believes that these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends and provides useful additional information relating to our operations and financial condition. These metrics should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for, the most comparable GAAP measure.
