-Revenues Increased 52 Percent-

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2014 increased 52 percent to $139.7 million from $91.8 million in the first quarter of 2013. Royalty revenues for the first quarter of 2014 are based on fourth quarter 2013 product sales by PDL's licensees to the Queen et al. patents, royalty payments from PDL's purchase of Depomed's diabetes-related royalties, and include a one-time $5 million retroactive payment from Genentech related to our settlement agreement.

The first quarter  2014 royalty revenue growth over first quarter of 2013 is driven by increased sales of Avastin®, Herceptin®, Xolair®, Perjeta®, Kadcyla®, and Actemra® by PDL's licensees, the addition of  $23.6 million in royalty revenue from PDL's purchase of Depomed's diabetes-related royalties, the $5 million retroactive payment from Genentech, and an increase in royalties from the Genentech settlement as a result of a fixed royalty rate of 2.125 percent on worldwide sales of all licensed products in 2014, as compared to the previous lower blended rate based upon a tiered royalty rate in the U.S and the fixed rate on all ex-U.S based manufactured and sold licensed products. 

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2014 were $16.5 million, compared with $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase of expenses in the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was a result of the non-cash amortization expense of $11.9 million for the Depomed royalty and milestone purchase, offset in part by decreased legal expenses from the settlement of legal proceedings with Genentech.

Net income in the first quarter of 2014 was $72.9 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, as compared with net income in the first quarter of 2013 of $53.5 million, or $0.36 per diluted share. The increase in net income in the first quarter is primarily due to the increase in royalty revenues.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2014 was $91.8 million, compared with $52.9 million in the first quarter of 2013. At March 31, 2014, PDL had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $337.6 million, compared with $99.5 million at December 31, 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes of $300.0 million, proceeds from the issuance of warrants of $11.4 million, and net cash provided by operating activities of $91.8 million, offset in part by cash advanced on notes receivable of $50.0 million, purchase of call options of $31.0 million, repurchase of convertible notes of $29.9 million, payment of dividends of $24.0 million, repayment of a portion of the term loan of $18.8 million, and payment of debt issuance costs related to the issuance of convertible notes of $9.8 million.

Recent Developments

Kaleo Note Purchase
On April 1, 2014, PDL acquired $150 million of secured notes from Accel 300, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of kaleo, Inc. (kaleo). The notes are secured by 100 percent of royalties from kaleo's first approved product, Auvi-Q™, which uses a new system for the delivery of epinephrine for the treatment of severe allergic reactions that can be life-threatening, i.e., anaphylaxis, and 10 percent of net sales of kaleo's second proprietary auto-injector based product, EVZIO, which uses the same technology to deliver naloxone for the treatment of patients who overdose on opioids.   

The secured notes carry interest at 13 percent per annum, paid quarterly in arrears on principal outstanding. The principal balance of the secured notes is repaid to the extent that the revenue interests exceed the quarterly interest payment, as limited by a quarterly payment cap. The final maturity of the secured notes is March 2029, although PDL anticipates repayment in 2020. Kaleo may redeem the secured notes at any time, subject to a redemption premium.

David W. Gryska Added to Board of Directors
Mr. Gryska brings more than 30 years of strategic biopharmaceutical and financial leadership experience to PDL and has demonstrated success in implementing successful strategic initiatives, growing companies and executing multi-billion dollar financial transactions.

Inventors of PDL Antibody Technology Named as Finalists for Prestigious Inventor Award
Two inventors of the company's patented breakthrough antibody technology have been named as a top-three finalist for the European Patent Office's highly prestigious 2014 European Inventor Award in the "Non-European Countries" category. Dr. Cary L. Queen and Dr. Harold E. "Barry" Selick, who currently serves as PDL's Lead Director, developed the technology for the antibody technology which has been developed into eight drugs that are currently on the market, including Avastin and Herceptin. PDL BioPharma now manages the portfolio of patents referred to as the Queen et al. patents which underlie more than $15 billion per year related to the sale of the licensed products that use this technology.

2014 Dividends
On January 29, 2014, PDL's Board of Directors declared regular quarterly dividends of $0.15 per share of common stock, payable on March 12, June 12, September 12 and December 12 of 2014 to all stockholders who own shares of PDL on March 5, June 5, September 5 and December 5 of 2014, the record dates for each of the dividend payments, respectively. On March 12, 2014, PDL paid the first quarterly dividend to stockholders of record totaling $24.0 million using earnings generated in the first quarter of 2014.

Revenue Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2014
