DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2024 / SWK Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ:SWKH) ("SWK" or the "Company"), a life science-focused specialty finance company catering to small- and mid-sized commercial-stage companies, today provided a business update and announced its financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

"During the first quarter, our finance segment generated a 10.3% year-over-year increase in gross finance receivables to $274.5 million coupled with a 14.2% effective yield, and a 16.3% realized yield. This led to a 23.7% year-over-year increase in segment revenue to $11.5 million, which is near an all-time high," stated Jody Staggs, President and CEO of SWK. "The strong revenue growth enabled our finance segment to remain profitable in the quarter generating $0.9 million of GAAP net income and $2.7 million of adjusted non-GAAP net income despite a $6.0 million impairment to our loan book."

Mr. Staggs continued: "Our Enteris division signed an Exclusive Option and Asset Purchase agreement with a strategic partner granting the partner a two-year exclusive option to purchase certain Enteris tangible assets in exchange for a series of payments. We received the first low-single digit million-dollar option fee in April and expect to receive the first guaranteed revenue payment at the mid-year mark. Our first quarter results did not include any revenue from the agreement. The Enteris team is working with our partner to increase the project pipeline and generate new business."

Mr. Staggs concluded: "We are pursuing multiple loan and royalty opportunities while remaining cognizant of increased competition in certain pockets of the life science finance market. We are focused on opportunities to partner with commercial-stage life science companies that possess high-margin, moated products with demonstrated strategic value. We are also working with our non-accrual borrowers to achieve beneficial resolutions. Finally, management and the Board remain committed to returning value to shareholders through the ongoing share repurchase program."

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results
For the first quarter 2024, SWK reported total revenue of $11.8 million, a 25.5% increase compared to $9.4 million for the first quarter 2023. The $2.4 million increase in revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024 consisted of a $2.2 million increase in Finance Receivables segment revenue and a $0.2 million increase in Pharmaceutical Development segment revenue. The $2.2 million increase in Finance Receivables segment revenue was primarily due to a $4.1 million increase in interest and fees earned due to funding new and existing loans offset by $1.9 million decrease in interest, fees and royalties earned on finance receivables that were paid off in 2023.

Income before income tax expense for the quarter decreased to $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $4.5 million for the same period of the previous year. The year-over-year decrease is primarily due to a $6.0 million impairment in our loan portfolio and a $1.1 million increase in interest expense, offset by a $2.4 million increase in consolidated revenue.

GAAP net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, decreased to $0.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, from $4.6 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2023.

For the first quarter 2024, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $1.5 million, a decrease from $5.7 million for the first quarter 2023. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the Finance Receivables segment was $2.7 million, a decrease from $7.3 million for the first quarter 2023.

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, there were $19.1 million in investment cash inflows in which $6.3 million were principal loan repayments. Gross income-producing assets (defined as finance receivables and corporate debt securities) totaled $274.5 million as of March 31, 2024. This is a 10.3% increase compared with gross income-producing assets of $248.8 million as of March 31, 2023. The allowance for credit loss at quarter's end totaled $13.2 million, an increase from $11.8 million in the first quarter of 2023. Net income-producing assets (defined as finance receivables and corporate debt securities) totaled $261.3 million as of March 31, 2024. Gross total investment assets, which include income-producing assets plus equity-linked securities, were $275.5 million as of March 31, 2024, compared to March 31, 2023, gross total investment assets of $249.6 million. Net total investment assets totaled $262.3 million as of March 31, 2024.

Book value per share was $22.46 as of March 31, 2024, a 5.0% increase compared to $21.39 as of March 31, 2023. Non-GAAP tangible financing book value per share totaled $19.69, a 6.8% increase compared to $18.45 at March 31, 2023. Management views non-GAAP tangible financing book value per share as a relevant metric to value the Company's core finance receivable business. Non-GAAP tangible financing book value per share removes the value of the deferred tax assets and Enteris net asset value.

Tables detailing SWK's financial performance for the first quarter 2024 are below.

Portfolio Status

SWK did not close any financings during the quarter and funded $0.4 million to an existing borrower. After quarter end, SWK advanced $2.0 million to an existing, performing borrower.

For the first quarter 2024, the realized yield of the finance receivables portfolio was 16.3%, a 100 bps increase compared to 15.3% for the same period in the previous year. The realized yield was negatively impacted by the classification of the $6.8 million loan to Exeevo to non-accrual status during the quarter. The realized yield is inclusive of all fees, including all realized unamortized fees, amendment fees, and prepayment fees, and is calculated based on the simple average of finance receivables at the beginning and end of the period. The realized yield may differ from the effective yield due to actual cash collections being greater or lesser than modeled.

As of March 31, 2024, non-accrual finance receivables totaled $26.8 million. Of the total $26.8 million, $10.4 million consisted of a non-accrual financing originally to Flowonix Medical, $6.8 million consisted of a loan to Exeevo, $3.6 million consisted of a loan to Trio Healthcare, $3.6 million consisted of a royalty purchase originally to Ideal Implant, and $2.5 million consisted of a royalty to Best ABT, Inc.

As of March 31, 2024, SWK had $5.0 million of unfunded commitments, and after quarter close added an additional $5.0 million of unfunded commitments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP finance receivable segment net income, and non-GAAP tangible financing book value per share, which are metrics that are not compliant with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP).

Non-GAAP adjusted net income is adjusted for certain items (including (i) changes in the fair-market value of public equity-related assets and SWK's warrant assets as mark-to-market changes are non-cash, (ii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income, (iii) changes in the fair-market value of contingent consideration associated with the Enteris acquisition as these changes are non-cash, and (iv) depreciation and amortization expenses, primarily associated with the Enteris acquisition.

In addition to the adjustments noted above, non-GAAP finance receivable segment net income also excludes Enteris operating losses.

Non-GAAP tangible financing book value per share excludes the deferred tax asset, intangible assets, goodwill, Enteris PP&E, and contingent consideration associated with the Enteris transaction.

These non-GAAP measures may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies in the Company's industry, as other companies may define such measures differently. Management believes that these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends and provides useful additional information relating to our operations and financial condition. The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to better understand its business. Non-GAAP financial results are reported in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures, even if similarly titled, may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, and therefore should not be compared.
