NORTH BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 4, 2021-- Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNTH) (Lantheus), an established leader and fully integrated provider of innovative imaging diagnostics, targeted therapeutics and artificial intelligence solutions to find, fight and follow serious medical conditions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

The Company’s worldwide revenue for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $92.5 million, compared with $90.7 million for the first quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 2.0% from the prior year period.

The Company’s first quarter 2021 net income was $9.0 million, or $0.13 per fully diluted share, as compared to net income of $3.3 million, or $0.08 per fully diluted share for the first quarter of 2020.

The Company’s first quarter 2021 adjusted fully diluted earnings per share were $0.05, as compared to $0.36 for the first quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 86.3% from the prior year period.

Lastly, net cash provided by operating activities was $9.8 million for the first quarter 2021. Free Cash Flow was $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, representing an increase of approximately $0.6 million from the prior year period.

“We had a strong start to 2021 with solid first quarter revenue and earnings overperformance driven mainly by DEFINITY volume. While COVID-19 did impact the early part of the quarter, we are encouraged by the continued trend toward in-person delivery of healthcare,” said Mary Anne Heino, President and CEO. “Currently, we are focused on preparation for the potential FDA approval and commercial launch of PyL, a best-in-class PSMA prostate cancer imaging agent, to help drive long-term value for patients, healthcare professionals, and shareholders.”

On a forward-looking basis, the Company does not provide GAAP income per common share guidance or a reconciliation of adjusted fully 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 fully 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 as adjusted net income and its line components; adjusted net income per share - fully 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. However, these measures may exclude items that may be highly variable, difficult to predict and of a size that could have a substantial impact on the Company’s reported results of operations for a particular 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.
