Thanks, Bob, and good afternoon, and thanks to everybody for becoming a member of the decision. I am happy to share particulars about our efficiency and progress within the first quarter. And as Bob indicated, my feedback are summarized on Slide 7 of the deck. Your complete crew at Emergent stays centered on our strategic imaginative and prescient to develop enterprise fastidiously by selecting and investing in public well being risk markets wherein we consider we will make a distinction for our sufferers.

Day-after-day, we ship on this promise with a diversified enterprise mannequin and disciplined working strategy that permits us to navigate by means of unsure environments, reminiscent of what we’ve got skilled and been by means of all through the COVID-19 pandemic. Whereas our report right this moment displays a mixture of each optimistic progress and challenges to handle, we stay financially robust with the sources to proceed pursuing our imaginative and prescient of defending and enhancing 1 billion lives by 2030. Our first quarter outcomes are strong as we hit the higher finish of our forecast vary for whole revenues, and exceeded Road consensus estimates for different key efficiency metrics. By means of the primary quarter, the output and achievements of the business and medical countermeasures enterprise traces is indicative of the energy and resilience of our core merchandise section.

We additionally proceed to advance our R&D pipeline consistent with the analysis and growth targets we shared on the final name. Such investments in R&D are according to our view towards growth tasks, as sources of potential future natural development for the corporate and presumably for additional enlargement of our impression on public well being preparedness and response.

First, our nasal naloxone franchise, which incorporates NARCAN Nasal Spray, and the licensed generic licensed to and distributed by Sandoz, continues to carry out consistent with our projections throughout key buyer segments. As we proceed to broaden entry to make sure that NARCAN is broadly accessible in the neighborhood, tens of millions of doses of our nasal naloxone merchandise have been distributed this final quarter. We proceed to see demand from our longtime public curiosity clients in the US and continued development in demand in Canada. Additionally, our medical countermeasures enterprise continues to ship on long-term contracts with the U.S.

I might prefer to publicly commend our medical countermeasures crew and the work they’re doing in gentle of the warfare in Ukraine and the potential for intentional or naturally occurring biologic threats, in addition to chemical threats. The crew has been working intently with the US and allied governments, in addition to world non-government organizations to determine and mobilize provides of medical countermeasures.

One living proof, we not too long ago acquired an pressing request from the Ukrainian Ministry of Well being that resulted in Emergent’s donation of 200 vials of Botulism Antitoxin. Extra requests and orders are at the moment being assessed. The tragedy in Ukraine and the potential risk of biologic or chemical assaults is a reminder of Emergent’s essential position in serving to put together the US and our allies to reply within the occasion that the unthinkable turns into actuality. Let me now flip to the CDMO enterprise.

Our non-COVID associated CDMO enterprise continues to indicate sturdiness. We’re retaining present purchasers and garnering new enterprise throughout the community of web sites. Nevertheless, as is the case with the remainder of the healthcare sector, we’re seeing a slowdown in COVID demand as wants wane, and we enter a brand new section within the pandemic. Johnson & Johnson not too long ago introduced that they have been suspending steerage associated to the gross sales of their COVID-19 vaccine due to the present oversupply available in the market.

Given this uncertainty, we’re quickly suspending our CDMO particular steerage, and Wealthy will share extra on steerage in a second. We stay in discussions with J&J on their future COVID-19 vaccine wants and are — importantly, our contract with them stays in place, as is our dedication to delivering on our obligations below it. As well as, we made progress with the beforehand deliberate modifications and enhancements, which are actually underway at our Bayview facility. These modifications will enhance the flexibility to fabricate viral and non-viral merchandise, in addition to strengthen Bayview’s choices for each inner and exterior purchasers as a part of its deliberate future position inside our CDMO community.

We anticipate finishing these enhancements in Q3 of this 12 months. As you might recall, Bayview was at all times supposed to be a multi-product facility. We have begun the tech switch of our raxibacumab product into the ability previous to the pandemic, and the pressing wants of that pandemic put these plans on maintain. Earlier than I contact on some personnel updates, I need to take a second to recollect Emergent’s founder, Fuad El-Hibri, who handed away final Saturday.

Our ideas and prayers exit to his household and buddies.

We have additionally not too long ago employed three skilled trade consultants to fill key roles on our management crew.

I stay up for your questions and can now flip the decision over to Wealthy for a deeper look into the financials. Wealthy?

Wealthy LindahlChief Monetary Officer

Thanks, Bob. Good afternoon, everybody, and thanks for becoming a member of the decision. I’ll begin on Slide 9 and open my remarks with some abstract ideas to place right this moment’s earnings report into context. We’ve beforehand famous that 2022 is a rebaseline 12 months for Emergent, as we transition our enterprise from the numerous calls for of the COVID-related work of the prior two years, again towards the long-term trajectory we envisioned as we exited 2019.

Our first quarter efficiency was strong on a stand-alone foundation. Even because the year-over-year outcomes replicate the bolus impression of the BARDA job order in 2021. We had steady contributions from our merchandise enterprise with year-over-year will increase in merchandise income and gross margin. On the similar time, we skilled short-term challenges in our companies enterprise, most notably, decreased income from the Bayview facility, stemming from the late February announcement to quickly pause manufacturing.

We’re assured the challenges within the companies enterprise shall be short-lived and anticipate companies gross margin to enhance sooner or later, as we garner extra significant contribution from the Bayview facility. Through the quarter, we additionally continued investments in progressing our growth pipeline, and we started assessing our working efficiency by specializing in two reportable segments, a product section, consisting of the federal government medical countermeasure and business merchandise enterprise traces; and a companies section, consisting of the CDMO companies enterprise line. Taken collectively, our efficiency this quarter underscores the energy and sturdiness of our diversified services enterprise mannequin. Turning to Slide 10, earlier than I stroll by means of the outcomes for the quarter, it is very important tackle our resolution to quickly droop parts of our 2022 forecast.

As we’re all conscious, not too long ago Johnson & Johnson introduced that they’d not tasks COVID-19 vaccine gross sales for this 12 months, citing a world provide surplus and vaccine hesitancy in growing nations as the idea for this alteration. Whereas our business provide settlement has not been modified and stays in place, we’re quickly suspending CDMO steerage till we’ve got additional readability on their necessities. Because of this, we’re additionally quickly suspending steerage on whole revenues, adjusted internet revenue, adjusted EBITDA and gross margin, and refraining from offering second quarter income steerage. Having stated that, it is very important notice that our assumptions with respect to our merchandise section revenues stay unchanged, subsequently, we’re reaffirming our steerage and it is listed on Slide 10.

For anthrax vaccines, ACAM2000, nasal naloxone merchandise and different merchandise plus contracts and grants, which within the mixture signify three-quarters of our earlier whole income vary, or about $1 billion on the midpoint. Moreover, I’d notice that over half of our prior CDMO steerage was represented by our Camden, Gaithersburg and Winnipeg websites, which continued to ship high quality companies to our CDMO clients. On the acceptable time, we’ll talk further data and replace our total forecast. With that, let’s flip to the numbers.

As indicated on Slides 11 and 12, highlights embody whole revenues of $308 million, a lower over the prior 12 months interval, however on the excessive finish of our steerage, pushed by throughout the board will increase in our product income classes and offset by decrease CDMO gross sales, and contracts and grants revenues. As anticipated, our key profitability measures additionally declined versus the prior 12 months, with adjusted EBITDA of $36 million and adjusted revenue of $9 million. Different notable gadgets within the quarter embody, anthrax vaccine gross sales of $104 million, increased than the prior 12 months resulting from timing of deliveries of AV7909 to the U.S. authorities’s strategic nationwide stockpile; ACAM2000 gross sales of $14 million, reflecting deliveries to non-U.S.

authorities clients, in search of to guard in opposition to the specter of smallpox; nasal naloxone product gross sales of $93 million, increased than the prior 12 months and comprised of robust unit gross sales of branded NARCAN to U.S. public curiosity and Canadian clients, in addition to strong contributions from gross sales of the licensed generic product licensed to Sandoz, which launched in December 2021. As anticipated, we additionally noticed decrease branded NARCAN gross sales within the U.S. business retail market, on account of the generic launch late within the fourth quarter final 12 months.

Different product gross sales have been $26 million, considerably increased than the prior 12 months, pushed primarily by deliveries to the U.S. authorities, and mixed CDMO service and lease revenues of $61 million, considerably decrease than the prior 12 months, largely resulting from two key components. In CDMO companies revenues, the decline displays the impression of the choice to provoke upkeep and different modification-related work at our Bayview web site, which decreased manufacturing actions through the quarter. Offsetting this issue was a rise in manufacturing actions at our Camden and Winnipeg websites in help of drug substance and drug product manufacturing companies for sure business clients.

And in CDMO lease revenues, the substantial decline was deliberate and displays the completion late final 12 months of our public personal partnership with BARDA in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Turning to working bills, price of product gross sales within the quarter was $80 million, increased than the prior 12 months resulting from better product gross sales. Price of CDMO was $76 million, increased than the prior 12 months resulting from skilled companies in help of high quality features on the Bayview web site, in addition to increased prices of each the Camden and Winnipeg websites, ensuing from elevated manufacturing actions through the interval. R&D expense of $46 million decrease than the prior 12 months, primarily resulting from a decline in prices related to the event of our COVID-19 therapeutic product candidates offset by a rise in prices from the CHIKV Section 3 research.

And SG&A spend of $85 million, barely increased than the prior 12 months resulting from a rise in skilled companies and advertising and marketing prices in help of the enlargement of our enterprise operations, in addition to prices related to defending and supporting our company status. Turning to further monetary data, let’s transfer to Slide 13 and evaluate the standing of our CDMO enterprise line throughout key efficiency metrics. As of March 31, our whole buyer depend was 71, a rise of 1 on a sequential foundation. And within the first quarter, we secured new enterprise of $34 million on persevering with regular demand for our companies.

A majority of this new enterprise is from present clients as we goal non-COVID molecules. Concerning CDMO backlog, as is effectively understood, this metric contains worth from the Johnson & Johnson contract. Given our suspension of CDMO income steerage, right now, we’re additionally quickly suspending CDMO backlog till we’ve got additional readability on their necessities. We are going to resume offering this metric on the acceptable time.

Subsequent, please flip to Slide 14. As I opened my remarks, I discussed that we’ve got now launched section reporting data by services. The efficiency for every section is assessed based mostly on two metrics, income and adjusted gross margin. Importantly, section income contains exterior buyer gross sales, however excludes any inter-segment revenues.

Moreover, we’re not together with our section reporting — we’re not together with in our section reporting any allocations for R&D, SG&A, amortization of intangibles, curiosity expense, different revenue or taxes. With that, let’s dig into the specifics of the primary quarter section efficiency. The product section revenues have been $237 million, a rise over the prior 12 months interval, and adjusted gross margin was $157 million or 66% of product revenues. Each will increase over the prior 12 months and reflecting the impression of upper gross sales quantity and product combine.

As for the companies section, revenues have been $61 million, a lower within the prior 12 months interval, and adjusted gross margin was unfavourable $50 million, reflecting the decline in income on the Bayview facility on account of three components. One, the completion of our association with BARDA; two, the pause in manufacturing actions for enchancment and modifications; and three, the rise in skilled companies prices. Shifting on to Slide 15, I will contact on choose stability sheet and money stream highlights. We ended the primary quarter in a powerful liquidity place with $436 million in money and accessible revolver capability of just below $600 million.

Our internet debt place was $405 million, and internet leverage remained lower than one instances. As well as, whereas our working money stream is unfavourable for the quarter from a capital deployment perspective, we sustained our dedication to each, continued investments and opportunistic buyback actions as follows. First quarter capital expenditures of $32 million reflecting ongoing funding in expanded capabilities and capability to help our diversified services enterprise traces and within the first quarter, we repurchased roughly 1.1 million shares at a price of $52 million pursuant to the $250 million repurchase authorization accepted by our board of administrators in November of final 12 months. Cumulatively, we’ve got spent $165 million to repurchase 3.8 million shares.

Importantly, the quantity and timing of any further repurchases shall be decided by administration, based mostly on the analysis of market circumstances and different components, and we’ll proceed to report such exercise on a quarterly foundation. To conclude, please flip to Slide 16 for some abstract feedback. Within the first quarter of 2022, we delivered one other interval of strong efficiency in our product section offset by continued rebase lining and normalization of our companies section as we transfer previous the affect of COVID-19 heightened actions. We proceed to see important alternative for our CDMO providing, given our capability and capabilities and stay bullish on the long-term potential of the companies enterprise.

Moreover, our R&D packages proceed to progress whereas we keep our dedication to prudent capital deployment in pursuit of our 2024 strategic targets. We stay up for preserving you knowledgeable as we execute on these plans and ship additional proof factors that display the long-term development potential of our robust diversified enterprise. That completes my ready remarks. I will now flip the decision over to the operator in order that we will begin the question-and-answer session.
