SINOVAC Reports Unaudited First Half of 2021 Financial Results

BEIJING, China, December 30, 2021 /Business Wire/ -- Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (NASDAQ: SVA) ("SINOVAC" or the "Company"), a leading provider of biopharmaceutical products in China, announced today its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

First Half of 2021 Financial Summary

Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2021 were $11.0 billion, compared to $67.7 million in the prior year period.
The Company posted $5.1 billion of net income attributable to common shareholders, or $51.42 per basic and $44.80 per diluted share, in the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to net loss attributable to common shareholders of $12.6 million, or $0.13 loss per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of SINOVAC, said: "We are working with global partners on joint vaccine research and collaborating locally to make COVID-19 vaccines available around the world. SINOVAC has become one of the largest global suppliers of COVID-19 vaccines, supplying over 2.5 billion doses of its inactivated vaccine, CoronaVac®, around the world, as of late December 2021. As the world continues to face challenges and new COVID-19 variants, SINOVAC remains committed to developing and distributing safe and effective vaccines in China and across the globe. We remain confident that our team of scientists will continue to evolve our vaccines to address new challenges and overcome the pandemic."

Business Updates

COVID-19 Vaccine - CoronaVac®, the inactivated COVID-19 vaccine developed by SINOVAC, has been granted emergency use approval or conditional market authorization by 56 countries and regions. On June 1, 2021, CoronaVac® was approved for emergency use under the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use Listing (EUL) procedure. On July 12, 2021, SINOVAC entered into an advance purchase agreement with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (Gavi Alliance) to provide up to 380 million doses of CoronaVac® for global distribution. In addition, CoronaVac® was approved for pediatric use for children aged from three years and above in nine countries. As of late December 2021, SINOVAC has provided over 2.5 billion doses of CoronaVac® globally. With annual production capacity of over 2 billion doses, SINOVAC is well positioned to be a supplier of high-quality vaccines around the world.

Sabin Inactivated Polio vaccine (sIPV) - the China National Medical Products Administration (or NMPA) issued a product license for its Sabin Inactivated Polio vaccine (sIPV) in July 2021.

Unaudited Financial Results for the First Half of 2021

Sales for the first half of 2021 were $11.0 billion, compared to $67.7 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to higher sales of CoronaVac® and sales growth of the Company's other products as the COVID-19 pandemic subsided in China and vaccine schedules returned to normal. Sales during the first six months of 2021 are not indicative of future sales trends since sales of CoronaVac® are expected to decline as the COVID-19 pandemic abates and competitive pressure from other vaccines increases.

Gross profit in the first half of 2021 was $10.3 billion, an increase from $58.2 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 94.2%, compared to 85.9% in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the first half of 2021 were $162.7 million, compared to $46.3 million in the prior year period. The increase was mainly due to increased resources dedicated to revenue growth and operation expansion.

R&D expenses in the first half of 2021 were $53.9 million, compared to $20.1 million in the prior year period.

Net income in the first half of 2021 was $8.6 billion, compared to a net loss of $8.7 million in the prior year period.

Net income attributable to common shareholders was $5.1 billion, or $51.42 per basic and $44.80 per diluted share, in the first half of 2021, compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $12.6 million, or $0.13 loss per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.

As the Company announced on February 22, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors determined that certain shareholders became acquiring persons, as defined in the Company's rights agreement ("Rights Agreement"), under which a trigger event occurred. As a result, the Company issued new common and preferred shares of SINOVAC. Without the effect of implementing the Rights Agreement and newly-issued common and preferred shares, basic and diluted earnings per share for the first half of 2021 would be $71.43 and $59.24, respectively.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $10.2 billion in the first half of 2021, compared to a loss of $5.1 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP net income was $8.6 billion in the first half of 2021, compared to a net loss of $7.5 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the first half of 2021 was $44.78, compared to a loss of $0.12 per share in the prior year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the first half of 2021, excluding the implementation of the Rights Agreement and the newly-issued common and preferred shares, would be $59.22. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures are included at the end of this earnings announcement.

As of June 30, 2021, cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $6.9 billion, compared to $1.1 billion as of December 31, 2020. In the first half of 2021, net cash provided by operating activities was $9.1 billion, net cash used in investing activities was $3.3 billion and net cash used in financing activities was $30.0 million.

Legal Proceedings

As previously disclosed by the Company, on March 13, 2018, 1Globe Capital LLC ("1Globe") filed a complaint against the Company in the Antigua Court. The trial of the matter took place from December 3 to 5, 2018. On December 19, 2018, the Antigua judge handed down his judgment (the "Antigua Judgment"), finding the Company fully in favor, dismissing 1Globe's claim and declaring the Rights Agreement was validly adopted as a matter of Antigua law. On January 29, 2019, 1Globe filed a Notice of Appeal against the Antigua Judgment. On March 4, 2019, 1Globe filed an application for urgent interim relief, seeking an injunction to prevent the Company from continuing to implement its Rights Agreement until the resolution of the appeal. This application was heard on April 4, 2019, at which the Court of Appeal issued an order restraining the Company from operating the Rights Agreement in any way that affects 1Globe's rights or shareholding or otherwise distributing the exchange shares to the Company's shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until after the determination of the appeal (the "Exchange Shares"). 1Globe's appeal against the Antigua Judgment was heard on September 18, 2019, and the appeal decision was announced by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, Court of Appeal on December 9, 2021, upholding the Antigua Judgment in each point. 1Globe has announced its intention to apply for leave to appeal to the Privy Council.

As previously disclosed, on March 5, 2018, the Company filed a lawsuit in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, seeking a determination on whether 1Globe, the Chiang Li Family, OrbiMed Advisors, LLC and certain other shareholders of the Company had triggered the Rights Agreement. On April 12, 2018, 1Globe filed an amended answer to the Company's complaint, counterclaims and a third-party complaint against the Company and Mr. Weidong Yin, alleging, among other allegations, that the Rights Agreement is not valid. On March 6, 2019, the Delaware Chancery Court entered a status quo order, providing that the Company not distribute any of the Exchange Shares to the Company's shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until the final disposition of the pending Delaware litigation or further order of the Court. On April 8, 2019, the Delaware Chancery Court stated that the Delaware litigation was pending the outcome of 1Globe's appeal of the Antigua Judgment.

Separately, Heng Ren Investments LP ("Heng Ren") filed suits against SINOVAC and Weidong Yin on May 31, 2019 in Massachusetts state court for the alleged breach of fiduciary duties and wrongful equity dilution. SINOVAC moved the matter from the state court to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Heng Ren alleged that Mr. Yin breached fiduciary duties owed to minority shareholders, that SINOVAC aided and abetted breaches of fiduciary duties and that both SINOVAC and Mr. Yin engaged in wrongful equity dilution. Heng Ren requested damages, attorney fees, and prejudgment interest. In July 2021, SINOVAC moved to dismiss Heng Ren's amended complaint in the federal court in Massachusetts. The court's decision on this motion is still pending.

Status of Exchange Shares and Trading in the Company's Shares

As a result of the pending legal proceedings described above, the Exchange Shares are expected to remain in a trust for the benefit of the Company's shareholders who did not trigger the Rights Plan until, at least, the conclusion of the appeal against the Antigua Judgement and the final disposition of the Delaware litigation or further order of the Delaware Chancery Court. The Exchange Shares remain issued and outstanding. The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC implemented a halt on trading of the Company's common shares at the time the Exchange Shares were issued to the trust. The Company is currently unable to estimate when trading will resume, or if Nasdaq will take any additional action in regards to trading of the Company's common shares.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release may include certain statements that are not descriptions of historical facts, but are forward-looking statements. These statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any such statements. In particular, the outcome of any litigation is uncertain, and the Company cannot predict the potential results of the litigation it filed or filed against it by others. Additionally, the triggering of a shareholder rights plan is nearly unprecedented, and the Company cannot predict the impact on the Company or its stock price as a result of the trigger of the rights plan.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, SINOVAC uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures" in this results announcement.

SINOVAC believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain income or expenses that SINOVAC includes in net income and diluted EPS. SINOVAC believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS provide useful information about its core operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to income from operations, net income, diluted EPS, or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of SINOVAC's operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to our data.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net income and excludes interest and financing expenses, interest income, net other income and income tax benefit (expenses), and certain non-cash expenses, consisting of share-based compensation expenses, amortization and depreciation that SINOVAC does not believe are reflective of the core operating performance during the periods presented.

Non-GAAP net income represents net income before share-based compensation expenses and foreign exchange gain or loss.

Non-GAAP diluted EPS represents non-GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods on a diluted basis, including accounting for the effect of the assumed conversion of options.
