  • Interest and other financial income of $1.9 million decreased $1.1 million.
  • Tax expense of $2.0 million compared to $2.7 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges in the prior year quarter, the effective tax rate for the quarter was 12.3% as compared to 6.1% in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income attributable to Taro was $14.1 million compared to net loss of $(18.8) million, resulting in earnings per share of $0.37 compared to (loss) per share of $(0.50). Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges in the prior year quarter, net income was $41.2 million, resulting in earnings per share of $1.09.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash flow used in operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $58.0 million. Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges, cash flow provided by operations was $9.6 million compared to $44.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
  • As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities (both short- and long-term) decreased $74.7 million to $1.18 billion from March 31, 2022; principally the result of a $67.6 million settlement payment to the Direct Purchaser Plaintiff (“DPP”) class in the In re: Generic Drug Pricing Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 2724.

Mr. Uday Baldota, Taro’s CEO, stated, “While we maintain the leading market position of many of our products, we continue to face an overall market trend, particularly in the U.S, that is not dramatically changing, and depending on the product, price deflation continues to be a challenge. With input costs rising sharply, we will continue to allocate increasing amounts of capital including R&D efforts into growth and profitable businesses and new businesses opportunities”.

* The June 30, 2022 results include three month’s results from the February 28th acquisition of Alchemee.

FDA Approvals and Filings

The Company recently received approvals from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) Fluphenazine Tablets 1mg, 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg. The Company currently has a total of eighteen ANDAs awaiting FDA approval, including four tentative approvals.

Generic Drug Pricing Antitrust Litigation MDL No. 2724

On November 4, 2021, a settlement was reached with the putative DPP, a putative class generally comprised of wholesalers and distributors that purchased generic drug products from manufacturers. On May 11, 2022, the Court granted preliminary approval of Taro’s settlement with the DPP class. As a result, on June 8, 2022, within the required time period, Taro made a $67.6 million settlement payment to the DPP class plaintiffs, subject to a reduction of up to $8.0 million depending on the volume of certain class members that may opt-out of the settlement.

The Company cautions that the foregoing 2022 financial information (including Alchemee) is unaudited and is subject to change.
