Management Commentary

Procaps Chief Executive Officer, Rubén Minski, commented:

“2021 was highlighted by our financial and operational momentum and the successful completion of key milestones that we believe position the company for global success in 2022.

“During the year we continued the pace of new product launches and product rollouts to new regions, as well as improvements to our inventory rotations, which combined to deliver 24% revenue growth during the year, including significant increases across all five of our business units. Increased investment in product development and new launches enabled stronger 2021 sales.

“Our reach into North America expanded in 2021, highlighted by our entrance to the U.S. capital markets with the listing of our shares on the Nasdaq. We are now expanding production capacity in the United States, including a recently acquired pharmaceutical production facility located in West Palm Beach, Florida, which is expected to increase our product development capabilities by more than 70% for our iCDMO business unit. Combined with the planned construction of a new gummy manufacturing facility in Miramar, Florida, expected to be fully operational by 2023, we are executing on our commitment to deliver better health and nutrition to the world through Innovative oral delivery systems.

“2021 was a milestone year for Procaps, to continue our growth trajectory and strengthen our global capabilities. We believe our innovative pharmaceutical solutions and new expansion initiatives will increase shareholder value and I look forward to providing additional updates on our successes in the months to come.

“In 2022 we are focused on executing a multi-prong growth strategy that we expect will continue to deliver double-digit growth in our core markets with strong cash generation to the bottom line. We believe our capital position also enables us to focus on strategic roll-ups and consolidation in the region that we anticipate will drive an accelerated competitive position and value creation,” concluded Minski.

Procaps Chief Financial Officer, Patricio Vargas, commented:

“We ended 2021 with record topline performance and Adjusted EBITDA with double-digit growth.

“We are executing on our strategy designed to deliver strong growth and establishing the necessary building blocks behind our growth drivers including: the hiring of strategic human capital, investing in our disruptive brands and capacity expansion, all of which we believe are necessary to achieve our 2022 targets. We are putting in place the plans to turn our top line into sustainable bottom-line results.

"As discussed with our third quarter 2021 financial results, as a result of our business combination, there were a number of one-time charges that affected our bottom line and equity classification. In order to maintain best practices with financial reporting and IFRS parameters, we utilized the extended reporting period in 2021 to reclassify some accounting metrics to set the template for 2022.

“We have reclassified approximately $12M of factoring and reverse factoring arrangements previously classified as part of Trade and other payables into Borrowings, the impact of which is reflected in the financial information included in this press release and which will be reflected in our annual audited financial statements to be included in our annual report on Form 20-F to be filed with the SEC.

“We expect to provide more information on our first quarter 2022 financial results in the coming weeks and look forward to engaging with investors in the U.S. and abroad at investor conferences and non-deal roadshows during the second quarter of 2022,” concluded Vargas.

The increase in net revenue was attributed to growth across all SBUs.

  • Procaps Colombia
    • The 35.2% growth in net revenue of the Procaps Colombia business during the year ended December 31, 2021 when compared to year ended December 31, 2020 is primarily due to increased demand for existing Rx and OTC products, such as Clenox and anesthetic products as well as the new products launches.
  • Nextgel
    • The 14.0% growth in net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2021 when compared to the year ended December 31, 2020 in this business unit was driven by strong demand from iCDMO products from third parties, and the launch of new products in Brazil and in the Funtrition (gummies) line, with increased demand for the immunity gummies and probiotics product lines, and the broader portfolio with important clients such as Olly, Amway, and Trace among others.
  • Central America South and Andean Region (CASAND)
    • The 39.9% growth in net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2021 when compared to the year ended December 31, 2020, was primarily due to further development of new products, the continued strengthening of existing brands in key growth markets and also the rollout of new products, such as Tapectam, Ezolium, Cuticlin and Vitybelle, in the region.
  • Central America North (CAN)
    • CAN experienced net revenue growth of approximately 11.6% growth for the year ended December 31, 2021 compared to the prior year, primarily as a result of the increase demand for both Rx and OTC products, such as Ezolium, Muvett and Isoface.
  • Diabetrics
    • Increased demand for Diabetrics products resulted in net revenue growth of 25.9% for the year ended December 31, 2021 when compared to the year ended December 31, 2020 primarily due to the increase in the demand for the product portfolio as a result of the expansion of products offering in this segment to a more complete diabetes solution focus.

Gross profit increased by $44.4 million, or 23.2%, to $235.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $191.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. This increase was primarily attributable to strong topline growth.

Gross margin remained relatively consistent in the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to the year ended December 31, 2020, at 57.5%.

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $100.9 million, negatively impacted by $123.0 million of non-cash items related to the business combination, and the impact of the put options which were terminated in connection with the closing of the business combination.

Adjusted EBITDA1 increased by 17.8% to $99.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $84.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. This increase was driven by the strong demand across branded Rx and OTC businesses from both our existing products as well as from our continued rollout of new product launches and increased demand in our iCDMO business.

Total net debt as of December 31, 2021, totaled $181.3 million, of which approximately 98.6% consisted of long-term obligations. Net Debt-to-Fiscal Year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA ratio as of December 31, 2021 was 1.8x.

Cash totaled $72.1 million on December 31, 2021, as compared to $4.2 million on December 31, 2020. The increase in cash during the year is a result of a net cash proceeds related to the closing of the business combination which is expected to fund future growth opportunities.

Key Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenues increased by $8.4 million, or 7.1%, to $126.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared to $118.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

See under the heading “Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures” for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of net income, which the Company believes is the most comparable IFRS measure, to Adjusted EBITDA.

Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Our management uses and discloses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio, which are non-IFRS financial information to assess our operating performance across periods and for business planning purposes. We believe the presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is useful to investors as it provides additional information to facilitate comparisons of historical operating results, identify trends in our underlying operating results and provide additional insight and transparency on how we evaluate our business. These non-IFRS measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and should be viewed as supplemental and in addition to our financial information presented in accordance with IFRS.

We define EBITDA as profit (loss) for the period before interest expense, net, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude certain isolated costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, certain transaction costs incurred in connection with the business combination (“Business Combination”) with Union Acquisition Corp. II (“Union”), certain listing expenses incurred in connection with the business combination, certain costs related to business transformation initiatives, certain foreign currency translation adjustments and certain other finance costs, and other nonrecurring nonoperational or unordinary items as the Company may deem appropriate from time to time. We also report Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue as an additional measure so investors may evaluate our Adjusted EBITDA margins. None of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA margin are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or IFRS and are non-IFRS financial measures.

We use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio for operational and financial decision-making and believe these measures are useful in evaluating our performance because they eliminate certain items that we do not consider indicators of our operating performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio are also used by many of our investors and other interested parties in evaluating our operational and financial performance across reporting periods. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Net Debt-to- Adjusted EBITDA ratio provides useful information to investors by allowing an understanding of key measures that we use internally for operational decision-making, budgeting, evaluating acquisition targets, and assessing our operating performance.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Net Debt-to- Adjusted EBITDA ratio are not recognized terms under IFRS and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow statement data. These measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

Because non-IFRS financial measures are not standardized, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Net Debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. It, therefore, may not be possible to compare our use of these non-IFRS financial measures with those used by other companies.

The following table contains a reconciliation of profit for the period to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin for the periods presented.
