CEO Comments
Commenting on the company's results, Nancy Lurker, chief executive officer of PDI, Inc., noted, "As expected, third quarter revenue was below that of the same period in 2011 due primarily to the timing and implementation of new contracts. To date, we have won more than $250 million of new contracts and renewals in 2012. Due to the timing of these wins and the execution timelines of these contracts, we expect that only approximately $40 million will impact revenue in 2012. Factoring in this activity, we now estimate that total revenue for the full year of 2012 will be in the range of $127 - $130 million

"Gross margins on our new Sales Services business in 2012 continue to trend lower than historical rates, including the $150 million win announced recently. We expect the gross margin percentage for the full year of 2012 to remain essentially flat compared to 2011, and to decline in 2013 as new wins with lower margins are executed. From an operating standpoint, we will continue to maintain tight cost controls. For the full year of 2012, excluding the previously announced fourth quarter charges for severance and facilities realignment, we expect a small operating loss and positive adjusted EBITDA in the range of 1% - 2% of revenue.     

"We will enter 2013 with a strong backlog of business under contract. Furthermore, we continue to be optimistic that outsourcing will continue to grow and become more the standard in the pharmaceutical industry.  I am also pleased to have announced the promotion of Gerry Melillo to the position of president, Sales Services. With this change, Gerry will bring increased focus and leadership, as well as his rich and deep background in the pharmaceutical industry, to our Sales Services segment."

Business Review - Continuing Operations
Revenue- For the third quarter of 2012, revenue of $31.8 million was $4.3 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. Revenue in the Product Commercialization segment increased but was more than offset by a decrease in revenue from both Sales Services and Marketing Services.

  • Sales Services segment revenue for the third quarter of 2012 of $25.0 million was $4.2 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. Due primarily to the timing of signing and start dates of new contract wins, revenue from these wins was not sufficient to offset certain contracts renewing for smaller amounts and the anticipated expiration of certain other contracts.
  • Marketing Services segment revenue for the third quarter of 2012 of $2.2 million was $1.8 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in Group DCA revenue due to fewer contract signings and delays in our customer's medical legal regulatory approval process.
  • Product Commercialization Services segment revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.6 million, $1.7 million higher than the third quarter of 2011.

Gross Profit- For the third quarter of 2012, gross profit of $5.9 million was $1.7 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. At the same time, the gross profit percentage decreased to 19% in 2012 from 21% in 2011. The overall decrease in gross profit dollars and percentage was driven primarily by the decreases in both Sales and Marketing Services. 

  • Sales Services segment gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 of $4.2 million was $1.4 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. This decrease was the result of lower revenue. Sales Services gross profit percentage declined in 2012 due primarily to lower margins being realized on new business.
  • Marketing Services segment gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 of $0.4 million was $1.2 lower when compared to 2011 as a result of lower revenue and a lower gross profit percentage within the segment.
  • Product Commercialization Services segment gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 of $1.4 million was $0.8 million higher than 2011.

Total Operating Expenses- For the third quarter of 2012, total operating expenses were $6.7 million; $0.8 million lower than the third quarter of 2011. The decrease is a result of the company's continuing focus on cost reduction.

Operating Loss- For the third quarter of 2012 the operating loss from continuing operations was $0.8 million, a decrease of approximately $1.0 million when compared to operating income of $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The decrease is primarily attributable to the decrease in revenue and gross profit when compared to the prior year quarter.

Liquidity and Cash Flow- Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.2 million compared to $1.3 million in 2011. Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2012 were $60.5 million, up $3.6 million from June 30, 2012 but down $3.8 million from prior year end.

  • The decrease in cash from year end is primarily attributable to the payments of severance and close-out costs associated with the fourth quarter 2011 sale of our Pharmakon business unit and right-sizing of the Group DCA unit and a 2012 scheduled $1.5 million payment to the sellers of Group DCA.
  • As of September 30, 2012, the company's cash equivalents were predominantly invested in U.S. Treasury money market funds and the company had no commercial debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, results provided in this document, PDI has provided certain non-GAAP financial measures to help evaluate the results of its performance. The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP financial measures, are useful to both management and investors in analyzing the company's ongoing business and operating performance. The company believes that providing the non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, allows investors to view the company's financial results in the way that management views financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure cash flow of the core operating business and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income (loss), plus depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, and other non-cash expenses.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding future events and financial performance. These statements are based on current expectations and assumptions involving judgments about, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond PDI's control. These statements also involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause PDI's actual results to be materially different from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statement. For example, with respect to statements regarding projections of future revenues, growth and profitability, actual results may differ materially from those set forth in this release based on the loss, early termination or significant reduction of any of our existing service contracts, the failure to meet performance goals in PDI's incentive-based arrangements with customers or the inability to secure additional business. Additionally, all forward-looking statements are subject to the risk factors detailed from time to time in PDI's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including without limitation, PDI's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and PDI's subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K. Because of these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions, undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements. In addition, these statements speak only as of the date of this press release and, except as may be required by law, PDI undertakes no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason.
