NORTH BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 30, 2019-- Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LNTH), parent company of Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc. (“LMI”), a global leader in the development, manufacture and commercialization of innovative diagnostic imaging agents and products, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

The Company’s worldwide revenues for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $86.5 million, compared with $82.6 million for the first quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 4.7% over the prior year period.

The Company’s first quarter 2019 net income was $9.9 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, as compared to $8.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 21.2% over the prior year period.

The Company’s first quarter 2019 adjusted diluted earnings per sharewere $0.28, as compared to $0.26 for the first quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 8.2% over the prior year period.

“2019 is off to a strong start for Lantheus with solid first quarter results driven by double-digit revenue growth of both DEFINITY and TechneLite,” said Mary Anne Heino, President and CEO of Lantheus. “As we look to the year ahead, we remain focused on enhancing the growth trajectory of our core microbubble franchise, investing in emerging technologies within our pipeline and continuously screening external development opportunities, all to deliver long-term, sustainable growth and shareholder value.”

Outlook

The Company maintains its guidance for full year 2019 and offers the following guidance for the second quarter.

   
 

Q2 Guidance Issued April 30, 2019

Q2 FY 2019 Revenue Growth 0.5% - 5.2%
Q2 FY 2019 Revenue $86 million - $90 million
Q2 FY 2019 Adjusted Diluted EPS $0.23 - $0.28

FY Guidance Issued February 20, 2019
and Affirmed April 30, 2019

FY 2019 Revenue Growth 4.25% - 5.75%
FY 2019 Revenue $358 million - $363 million
FY 2019 Adjusted Diluted EPS $1.14 - $1.17
 

On a forward-looking basis, the Company does not provide GAAP income per common share or a reconciliation of adjusted diluted EPS to GAAP income per common share because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty business development and acquisition-related expenses, purchase accounting fair value adjustments, and any one-time, non-recurring charges. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to results computed in accordance with GAAP. As a result, it is the Company’s view that a quantitative reconciliation of adjusted diluted EPS on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, such adjusted net income and its line components; adjusted net income per share - diluted; and free cash flow. The Company’s management believes that the presentation of these measures provides useful information to investors. These measures may assist investors in evaluating the Company’s operations, period over period. The measures may exclude such items which may be highly variable, difficult to predict and of a size that could have substantial impact on the Company’s reported results of operations for a period. Management uses these and other non-GAAP measures internally for evaluation of the performance of the business, including the allocation of resources and the evaluation of results relative to employee performance compensation targets. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

This press release includes forward-looking non-GAAP guidance for 2019 adjusted diluted EPS. No reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP guidance was included in this press release because, due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the excluded information and the fact that some of the excluded information is not readily ascertainable or accessible, the Company is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts.
