Revenue: For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, GBT’s financial results accounted for $48,927 of incremental revenues ($21,813 in Brazil, $10,684 in Argentina, $8,464 in Colombia and $7,966 in the rest of the Latin American region). Knight’s revenues increased by $1,119, or 35% attributable to timing of sales of Impavido®, the growth in Movantik® and the in-licensing of Trelstar.

Gross margin: For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the gross margin decreased to 42% compared to the same period in the prior year. In addition, the Company added an inventory provision of $1,638 due to impact of COVID-19 on certain new product launches. The gross margin would have been 47%, an increase of 5%, from 42% after excluding the adjustment of hyperinflation accounting in accordance with IAS 29.

Selling and marketing: The increase of $7,703 for the quarter is primarily driven by the consolidation of GBT.

General and administrative: GBT’s financial results accounted for $5,510 of incremental general and administrative expenses for the three-month ended June 30, 2020. Knight’s general and administrative expenses for three-month period ended June 30, 2020 decreased by 31% or $1,222 compared to the same period prior year.  The decrease is mainly due to $1,652 of non-recurring expenses incurred in the same period prior year on professional fees related to the activist campaign, public proxy battle and related litigations between the Company and dissident shareholder Meir Jakobsohn, Medison’s CEO, partially offset by additional expenses incurred due to the growth of the Company.

Research and development: GBT’s financial results accounted for $1,482 of incremental research and development expenses for the three-month period ended June 30, 2020. There was no significant variance in Knight’s research and development expenses.

Amortization of intangible assets: The amortization of the definite-life intangible assets acquired in the GBT transaction represents $5,417 for the three-month period ended June 30, 2020. There was no significant variance in Knight’s amortization.

Interest income: Interest income is the sum of interest income on financial instruments measured at amortized costs and other interest income.  For the quarter, interest income was $3,678 a decrease of 40% or $2,428 compared to the same period prior year. The decrease is due to lower interest rates, lower average cash and marketable securities balances partially offset by a higher average loan balance.

Interest expense: GBT’s financial results accounted for $1,094 of incremental interest expense for the three-month period ended June 30, 2020 mainly related to interest on its bank loans. Knight’s portion of interest expense is mainly related to interest accretion on the Mandatory Tender Offer (“MTO”) liability of $1,165 for the three-month period ended June 30, 2020.

Foreign exchange gain or loss:  For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, GBT’s financial results accounted for $1,940 of foreign exchange loss of which $1,048 relates to unrealized losses on intercompany balances, and $892 relates to losses on third party balances. Furthermore, Knight recorded a foreign exchange loss of $2,116 due to losses on certain US dollar denominated net assets.

Net income or loss:  For the quarter net income was $15,512 a decrease of $3,444 compared to the same period last year. The variance mainly resulted from the above-mentioned items as well as (i) net gain on the revaluation of financial assets measured at fair value through profit or loss of $16,499 (Q2-19 $19,755) , (ii) net gain on MTO liability of $3,222 due to unrealized gain on the foreign exchange revaluation of the Brazilian real denominated MTO liability, offset by unrealized loss on forward and non-deliverable forward contracts, (iii) realized gain on the NCIB’s automatic share purchase plan of $1,299 (v) loss on hyperinflation of $527 due to net monetary positions under hyperinflation accounting.

Adjusted Earnings: For the three-month period ended June 30, 2020, adjusted earnings were $9,972 an increase of $5,408 or 119% compared to the same period last year. The consolidation of GBT’s financial results accounted for $7,601 of the increase which is partially offset by a decrease in Knight’s interest income.

Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities:  As at June 30,2020, Knight had $566,837 in cash and cash equivalents an increase of $30,655 or 6% as compared to December 31, 2019. The variance is primarily due to cash inflow related to sale of shares in associate partially offset by share repurchase through NCIB and acquisition of intangibles.

Trade and other receivable:  As at June 30, 2020, Knight had $77,844 in trade and other receivables, a decrease of $30,338 compared to December 31, 2019. The decrease of $21,823 relates to a decrease in both short term and long term  trade receivables due to depreciation of Latin American (“LATAM”) currencies, the net collection  of collection of receivables and an increase in estimated credit loss provision recorded in 2020. The remaining difference is mainly due to collection of a distribution receivable from a fund investment, a decrease in interest receivable due to timing of the maturities of the marketable securities as well as a decline in interest rates.

Inventory: Overall increase in inventories of $966 as compared to December 31, 2019 is due to timing of inventory purchases and new product launches and the impact of hyperinflation adjustments, partially offset by the depreciation of LATAM currencies as well as inventory provisions.

Financial assets:  The increase of $15,729 as compared to Q4 2019  in financial assets is due to the following: (i) increase of $3,243 attributable to loans and receivables as a result of additional loans issued and gain on foreign exchange (ii) decrease in equity investments of $5,687 due to disposal and revaluation, and (iii) increase of $18,173 attributable to fund investments due to capital calls, foreign exchange gains and mark to market adjustments partially offset by distribution received.

Accounts payable, accrued, and other liabilities: Decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities balance of $27,630, or 29% is mainly due payments of inventory purchases , payments of GBT transaction fees , the depreciation of LATAM currencies and lower accrual balance as compared to December 31, 2019 due to timing.

Bank Loans: As at June 30, 2020, bank loans were at $46,014, a decrease of $9,565 or 17% mainly due to loan repayment of $7,518 and the foreign exchange revaluation, partially offset by additional loan issued to a subsidiary of GBT.

Product Updates

On January 8, 2020, Knight announced it has partnered with Debiopharm in an exclusive agreement that grants Knight the Canadian rights to commercialize Trelstar® (triptorelin), an agonist analogue of the natural gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).

COVID-19 Update

The recent outbreak of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, which has been declared by the World Health Organization to be a pandemic, has spread across the globe and is impacting worldwide economic activity. Certain countries where the Company has significant operations, have required entities to limit or suspend business operations and have implemented travel restrictions and quarantine measures. Knight is continuing to work to alleviate some of the pressure that the global COVID-19 pandemic has placed on our healthcare systems and ensure that we maintain supply of our medicines to patients. The Company and its employees have transitioned to working remotely, including our field sales and medical teams. The Company has taken steps to establish digital and virtual channels to ensure that physicians and patients continue to receive continued support.  Knight is developing return to field or office protocols on a country by country basis. Furthermore, the Company has not faced any inventory shortages and has sufficient liquidity to meet all operating requirements for the foreseeable future. As the date hereof, the outbreak has not had a material impact on the Company’s results.

IMPACT OF HYPERINFLATION
[In thousands of Canadian dollars]

The Company applies IAS 29, Financial Reporting in Hyperinflation Economies, as the Company’s Argentine subsidiaries used the Argentine Peso as their functional currency. IAS 29 requires that the financial statements of an entity whose functional currency is the currency of a hyperinflationary economy be adjusted based on an appropriate general price index to express the effects of inflation. If the Company did not apply IAS 29, the effect on the Company’s operating income would be as follows:

RECONCILIATION TO ADJUSTED EARNINGS
[In thousands of Canadian dollars]

Non-IFRS measure: EBITDA and Adjusted earnings

The Company discloses non-IFRS measures that do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS. The Company believes that shareholders, investment analysts and other readers find such measures helpful in understanding the Company’s financial performance and in interpreting the effect of the GBT Transaction on the Company. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not have been calculated in the same way as similarly named financial measures presented by other companies.

The Company uses the following non-IFRS measures:

EBITDA: Operating (loss) income adjusted to exclude amortization and impairment of intangible assets, depreciation, purchase price allocation accounting, and the impact of IAS 29 (accounting under hyperinflation) but to include costs related to leases. In addition, EBITDA does not reflect the portion of GBT’s adjusted earnings attributable to the non-controlling interests.

Adjusted earnings: Operating (loss) income adjusted to exclude amortization and impairment of intangible assets, depreciation, acquisition costs, non-recurring expenses incurred but to include interest income earned net of interest expenses and costs related to leases. In addition, the adjusted earnings does not reflect the portion of GBT’s adjusted earnings attributable to the non-controlling interests.

Adjustments to operating (loss) income include the following:

  • With the adoption of IFRS 16, the lease payments of Knight are not reflected in operating expenses.  The IFRS 16 adjustment approximates the cash outflow related to leases of Knight.
  • Acquisition costs relate to expenses of $104 for the quarter, for the acquisition of GBT.
  • Other non-recurring expenses relate to expenses incurred by Knight that are not due to, and are not expected to occur in, the ordinary course of business. For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, Knight recorded one-time costs of $304 related to restructuring activities including severance to certain employees as part of restructuring and integration of GBT
  • Interest income Includes “Interest income on financial instruments measured at amortized cost” and “Other interest income”. Primarily from interest earned on loans, cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities and accretion on loans receivable.
  • Interest expense on bank loans includes GBT’s interest expense mainly related to interest on its bank loans and excludes Knight’s interest accretion

For the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020, the Company calculated adjusted operating income as follows:
