(1)     Diluted per share data is computed based on weighted average shares outstanding and, if there is income from continuing operations during the period, the dilutive impact of share equivalents outstanding during the period. In the case of Adjusted Diluted Weighted Average Shares, Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations is used in determining whether to include such dilutive impact.

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Total revenues decreased by 11 percent to $787 million in third-quarter 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. The decline was primarily due to previously announced U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals product discontinuances, pricing pressure from increased competition primarily impacting the U.S. Generics Base business, generic competition adversely impacting the Branded Established Products portfolio and the ceasing of shipments of OPANA? ER to customers by September 1, 2017.

GAAP net loss from continuing operations in third-quarter 2017 was $100 million compared to GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $191 million during the same period in 2016. This decrease included the impact of lower amortization of intangible assets in third-quarter 2017 and higher third-quarter 2016 tax expense primarily due to the amortization of a deferred charge. GAAP net loss per share from continuing operations for third-quarter 2017 was $0.45, compared to diluted GAAP loss per share from continuing operations of $0.86 in third-quarter 2016.

Adjusted income from continuing operations in third-quarter 2017 was $204 million compared to $226 million in third-quarter 2016. This decrease included the impact of an increase to interest expense, mainly due to the refinancing of the Company’s secured debt in April 2017, and adjusted tax expense. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations in third-quarter 2017 was $0.91 compared to $1.01 in third-quarter 2016.

U.S. GENERIC PHARMACEUTICALS

During third-quarter 2017, the U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals segment launched vigabatrin for oral solution USP, the first generic version of Sabril?, and sodium phenylbutyrate tablets, the first generic equivalent of Buphenyl?. Year-to-date in 2017, Par has launched 14 new generic products and has made nine submissions to regulatory authorities.

Third-quarter 2017 U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals results include:

-- Revenues of $497 million, a 7 percent decrease compared to third-quarter 2016, as the decline in the U.S. Generics Base business was partially offset by strong growth in Sterile Injectables.

-- Sterile Injectables revenue increased 28 percent compared to third-quarter 2016; this increase was driven primarily by ADRENALIN? and VASOSTRICT?.

-- The U.S. Generics Base business revenues decreased 27 percent compared to third-quarter 2016; this decrease primarily resulted from the impact on third-quarter 2017 related to 2016 and 2017 competitive events, previously announced product discontinuances and the continued impact on pricing due to consolidation among our trade accounts.

U.S. BRANDED PHARMACEUTICALS

During third-quarter 2017, Endo, in partnership with Tim Herron, a four-time PGA Tour winner, and Damon Adamany, MD, of the CORE Institute, launched Facts on Hand, an unbranded campaign to raise awareness of Dupuytren’s Contracture, a progressive, potentially disfiguring hand condition. Endo also recently launched several direct-to-consumer initiatives intended to increase patient awareness of XIAFLEX? as a possible treatment option for Dupuytren’s Contracture and Peyronie’s Disease.

Third-quarter 2017 U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals results include:

-- Revenues of $234 million, a 16 percent decrease compared to third-quarter 2016; this decrease was primarily attributable to generic competition adversely impacting the Company’s established products portfolio, the divestitures of STENDRA? and BELBUCA? and the decline in revenues of OPANA? ER resulting from the cessation of product shipments by September 1, 2017.

-- Specialty Products revenues increased 11 percent in third-quarter 2017 versus the same period in 2016, driven by strong performance from XIAFLEX? and other products within our Specialty Products portfolio. Sales of XIAFLEX?, our flagship Branded product, increased 10 percent compared to third-quarter 2016; this increase was primarily attributable to volume growth.

INTERNATIONAL PHARMACEUTICALS

During third-quarter 2017, Endo announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Mexican subsidiary, Somar, to Advent International. The transaction closed on October 25, 2017.

Third-quarter 2017 International Pharmaceuticals revenues were $56 million, compared to $71 million in the same period in 2016. The decline is primarily attributable to the sale of the Company’s South African business, Litha Healthcare Group, to Acino Pharma AG, which closed on July 3, 2017.

2017 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

For the full twelve months ended December 31, 2017, at current exchange rates, Endo is reaffirming its full-year guidance on revenue, adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations provided in August 2017. The Company estimates:

-- Total revenues to be between $3.38 billion to $3.53 billion;

-- Reported diluted GAAP loss per share from continuing operations to be between $4.94 and $4.64;

-- Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations to be between $3.35 to $3.65; and

-- Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations to be between $1.48 billion to $1.56 billion.

The Company’s 2017 non-GAAP financial guidance is based on the following assumptions:

-- Adjusted gross margin of approximately 62.5% to 63.5%;

-- Adjusted operating expenses as a percentage of revenues of approximately 22.0%;

-- Adjusted interest expense of approximately $490 million to $500 million;

-- Adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 12.0% to 13.0%; and

-- Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations assumes full-year adjusted diluted shares outstanding of approximately 224 million shares.

BALANCE SHEET, LIQUIDITY AND OTHER UPDATES

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had $738 million in unrestricted cash; debt of $8.3 billion; net debt of approximately $7.5 billion and a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 4.2.

Third-quarter 2017 cash provided by operating activities was $83 million, compared to $115 million of net cash used in operating activities in the comparable 2016 period. The 2016 period was impacted by higher funding of payments related to settled U.S. mesh product liability claims.

During third-quarter 2017, the Company recorded pre-tax, non-cash asset impairment charges of $95 million, $78 million of which related to in-process research and development intangible assets in its U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals segment and certain finite-lived intangible assets in its U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals segment.

(1)   Included within the above Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows is the impact of payments into and out of QSFs for mesh-related product liability. Cash payments into QSFs result in a cash outflow for investing activities (CFI). Cash releases from QSFs result in a cash inflow for investing activities and a corresponding outflow for operating activities (CFO). The following table reflects the mesh-related payment activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 by cash flow component:

(7)     To exclude litigation-related settlement charges, reimbursements and certain settlements related to intellectual property suits previously filed by our subsidiaries.
(8)     To exclude pre-tax, non-cash goodwill, intangible asset and property, plant and equipment impairment charges.
During the third quarter of 2017, we recorded total pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $95 million. Approximately $17 million was related to property, plant and equipment charges related to our previously announced restructuring initiatives and held-for-sale accounting for Somar. The remaining charges during the third quarter were largely the result of market conditions impacting the recoverability of certain indefinite and finite-lived intangible assets in our U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals and U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals segments.
During the second quarter of 2017, we recorded total pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $725 million. We announced the 2017 U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals restructuring initiative in July 2017, which includes the discontinuation of certain commercial products. As a result, we assessed the recoverability of the impacted products, resulting in pre-tax, non-cash intangible asset impairment charges of approximately $58 million. We also recorded property, plant and equipment impairments related to this restructuring totaling $32 million. As a result of the decision to withdrawal OPANA? ER, we determined that the carrying amount of this intangible asset was no longer recoverable, resulting in a pre-tax, non-cash impairment charge of $21 million, representing the remaining carrying amount. As a result of the aforementioned actions related to OPANA? ER and the continued erosion of its U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals segment’s Established Products portfolio, we initiated an interim goodwill impairment analysis of our Branded reporting unit. We recorded a pre-tax, non-cash asset impairment charge of $180 million for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeded the reporting unit’s fair value. We entered into a definitive agreement to sell Somar on June 30, 2017, which resulted in Somar’s assets and liabilities being classified as held for sale. The initiation of held-for-sale accounting, together with the agreed upon sale price, triggered an impairment review. Accordingly, we performed an impairment analysis using a market approach and determined that impairment charges were required. We recorded pre-tax non-cash impairment charges of $26 million, $90 million and $10 million related to Somar’s goodwill, other intangible assets and property, plant and equipment, respectively. The remaining charges during the second quarter were largely the result of market conditions impacting the recoverability of certain indefinite and finite-lived intangible assets in our U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals, U.S. Branded Pharmaceuticals and International Pharmaceuticals segments.
During the first quarter of 2017, we recorded total impairment charges of $204 million. Pursuant to an existing agreement with Novartis AG, Endo’s subsidiary, Paladin Labs Inc., licensed the Canadian rights to commercialize serelaxin, an investigational drug for the treatment of acute heart failure (AHF). On March 22, 2017, Novartis announced that a Phase III study of serelaxin in patients with AHF failed to meet its primary endpoints. As a result, Endo has concluded that its serelaxin in-process research and development intangible asset is fully impaired resulting in a $45 million non-cash impairment charge. As a result of the serelaxin intangible impairment, Endo assessed the recoverability of its Paladin goodwill balance and determined that the estimated fair value of the Paladin reporting unit was below its book value, resulting in a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $83 million. The remaining charges were largely the result of certain market conditions impacting the recoverability of developed technology intangible assets in Endo’s U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals segment.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recorded pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $94 million and $263 million, respectively. As a result of unfavorable formulary changes and generic competition for sumatriptan, we experienced a downturn in the performance of our SUMAVEL? DOSEPRO? product, resulting in a non-cash impairment charge of $73 million during the third quarter of 2016. Also during the third quarter of 2016, we determined that we would not pursue commercialization of a product in certain international markets, resulting in a non-cash asset impairment charge of $16 million. As a result of the 2016 U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals restructuring initiative, we recorded $100 million of non-cash impairment charges during the first quarter of 2016 resulting from the discontinuation of certain commercial products and the abandonment of certain IPR&D projects. The remaining charges during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were largely the result of market and regulatory conditions impacting the recoverability certain indefinite and finite-lived intangible assets in our U.S. Generic Pharmaceuticals segment.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company utilizes certain financial measures that are not prescribed by or prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP). These Non-GAAP financial measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for U.S. GAAP net income and its components and diluted earnings per share amounts. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, we stress that these are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP adjusted net income from continuing operations and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income from continuing operations and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies. These Non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely to permit investors to more fully understand how management assesses performance.

Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. However, the Company does not provide reconciliations of projected non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures, nor does it provide comparable projected GAAP financial measures for such projected non-GAAP financial measures, except for projected adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations. The Company is unable to provide such reconciliations without unreasonable efforts due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for asset impairments, contingent consideration adjustments, legal settlements, loss on extinguishment of debt, adjustments to inventory and other charges reflected in the reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which could be significant.

See Endo’s Current Report on Form 8-K furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission for an explanation of Endo’s non-GAAP financial measures.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including but not limited to the statements by Mr. Campanelli, as well as other statements regarding product development, market potential, corporate strategy, optimization efforts and restructurings, expected growth and regulatory approvals, together with Endo’s earnings per share from continuing operations amounts, product net sales, revenue forecasts and any other statements that refer to Endo’s expected, estimated or anticipated future results. Because forecasts are inherently estimates that cannot be made with precision, Endo’s performance at times differs materially from its estimates and targets, and Endo often does not know what the actual results will be until after the end of the applicable reporting period. Therefore, Endo will not report or comment on its progress during a current quarter except through public announcement. Any statement made by others with respect to progress during a current quarter cannot be attributed to Endo.

All forward-looking statements in this press release reflect Endo’s current analysis of existing trends and information and represent Endo’s judgment only as of the date of this press release. Actual results may differ materially from current expectations based on a number of factors affecting Endo’s businesses, including, among other things, the following: changing competitive, market and regulatory conditions; Endo’s ability to obtain and maintain adequate protection for its intellectual property rights; the timing and uncertainty of the results of both the research and development and regulatory processes, including regulatory decisions, product recalls, withdrawals and other unusual items; domestic and foreign health care and cost containment reforms, including government pricing, tax and reimbursement policies; technological advances and patents obtained by competitors; the performance, including the approval, introduction, and consumer and physician acceptance of new products and the continuing acceptance of currently marketed products; the effectiveness of advertising and other promotional campaigns; the timely and successful implementation of strategic initiatives; the results of any pending or future litigation, investigations or claims; the uncertainty associated with the identification of and successful consummation and execution of external corporate development initiatives and strategic partnering transactions; and Endo’s ability to obtain and successfully maintain a sufficient supply of products to meet market demand in a timely manner. In addition, U.S. and international economic conditions, including higher unemployment, political instability, financial hardship, consumer confidence and debt levels, taxation, changes in interest and currency exchange rates, international relations, capital and credit availability, the status of financial markets and institutions, fluctuations or devaluations in the value of sovereign government debt, as well as the general impact of continued economic volatility, can materially affect Endo’s results. Therefore, the reader is cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements. Endo expressly disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements except as required to do so by law.

Additional information concerning the above-referenced risk factors and other risk factors can be found in press releases issued by Endo, as well as Endo’s public periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and with securities regulators in Canada, including the discussion under the heading "Risk Factors" in Endo’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
