Financial Results

Product Sales

For Q2 2012, product sales were $53.2 million, a decrease from $71.5 million for Q2 2011. This decrease was primarily due to fewer doses of BioThrax delivered.

For the six month period of 2012, product sales were $87.5 million, an increase from $77.1 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was primarily due to more doses of BioThrax delivered, partially offset by a lower sales price per dose. Product sales revenues for the six month period of 2012 included BioThrax sales to HHS of $87.3 million.

Contracts and Grants Revenues

For Q2 2012, contracts and grants revenues were $17.2 million, an increase from $16.7 million for Q2 2011.

For the six month period of 2012, contracts and grants revenues were $33.2 million, an increase from $29.6 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase in both periods was primarily due to increased activity and associated revenue from the company’s development contracts.

Cost of Product Sales

For Q2 2012, cost of product sales was $13.2 million, a decrease from $16.1 million for Q2 2011. This decrease was attributable to fewer doses of BioThrax delivered.

For the six month period of 2012, cost of product sales were $20.7 million, an increase from $17.1 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of BioThrax doses delivered.

Research and Development

For Q2 2012, research and development expenses were $30.6 million, a decrease from $31.5 million for Q2 2011. Net of development contracts and grants revenue along with the net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, research and development expenses were $11.3 million for Q2 2012, a decrease from $13.1 million for the comparable period in 2011.

For the six month period of 2012, research and development expenses were $56.9 million, a decrease from $66.2 million in the comparable period of 2011. This decrease primarily reflects lower contract service and personnel-related costs. Net of development contracts and grants revenue along with the net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, research and development expenses were $20.4 million for Q2 2012, a decrease from $33.2 million for the comparable period in 2011.

Selling, General and Administrative

For Q2 2012, selling, general and administrative expenses were $17.9 million, a decrease from $20.4 million for Q2 2011.

For the six month period of 2012, selling, general and administrative expenses were $37.4 million, a decrease from $38.6 million in the comparable period of 2011. This decrease in both periods was primarily due to charges incurred in 2011 related to the restructuring of the company’s UK operations.

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents combined with investments at June 30, 2012 was $161.8 million, compared to $150.4 million at March 31, 2012 and $145.9 million at December 31, 2011. Additionally, at June 30, 2012, the accounts receivable balance was $46.8 million, which is comprised primarily of unpaid amounts due for shipments of BioThrax to the US government.

Forecast: Q3 2012

For Q3 2012, the company anticipates total revenues of $60 to $70 million.

Forecast: Full Year 2012

For full year 2012, the company is reaffirming its forecast of total revenues of $280 to $300 million, split between product sales of $220 to $230 million and contracts and grants revenue of $60 to $70 million. The company also reaffirms its forecast of net income of $15 to $25 million.
