In the prior year, settlements and loss contingencies of $558.9 million consisted of $418.9 million related to the global resolution with the DOJ in connection with its investigations into the U.S. generic pharmaceutical industry and a $140.0 million provision related to ongoing multi-jurisdiction civil antitrust matters; however, there can be no assurance as to the ultimate outcome.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash flow used in operations for the year ended March 31, 2022, was $158.7 million. Excluding the impact from the settlement and loss contingencies charges, cash flow provided by operations was $165.6 million compared to $130.3 million for the year ended March 31, 2021.
  • As of March 31, 2022, cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities (both short and long-term) decreased $324.9 million to $1.26 billion from March 31, 2021; reflecting the impact from payments to the DOJ of $317.6 million ─ as a result of the global resolution with the DOJ in connection with its investigations into the U.S. generic pharmaceutical industry, the Alchemee acquisition, net of cash of $91.9 million and share repurchases of $24.9 million.

Mr. Uday Baldota, Taro’s CEO, stated, “The challenging market dynamics, including pricing, supply chain and competitive pressures persist ─ particularly in the U.S. market. However, our strong balance sheet and strategy will enable us to continue to pursue future business development opportunities, such as our recent acquisition of Alchemee and continued R&D investment.”
