PDL BioPharma (PDLI) Q2 Earnings Beat, Revenues Rise Y/Y

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 21:38:46 GMT

Investment summary

PDL BioPharma recently reported strong Q217 earnings mainly due to royalties related to the authorized generic of Glumetza as well as an increase in the fair value of the Depomed royalty assets as a whole. Also, LENSAR, which became a wholly-owned subsidiary on 11 May, was consolidated in the results, with $2.6m in revenues and $3.8m in expenses. The company continues to receive royalty payments for Tysabri for longer than expected; it was paid $16.3m in Q217.
