Dallas, TX, November 3, 2014 – SWK Holdings Corporation (SWKH.OB) (“SWK” or the “Company”), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced today its third quarter 2014 financial results and the initiation of its Rights Offering.
Third Quarter 2014 Highlights:
- Increased total revenues by 139% to approximately $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2014, compared to $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2013.
- Increased non-GAAP adjusted net income 158% to approximately $2.0 million, as compared to $0.8 million for the third quarter of 2013.
- Entered into an agreement with Carlson Capital, L.P. and its affiliates to raise up to approximately $115 million in a series of transactions, including the Rights Offering.
- Funded approximately $11.5 million into three new transactions.
Year to Date Highlights:
- Total revenues of approximately $10.7 million, an increase of 258% in the first nine months of fiscal 2014 compared to approximately $3.0 million for 2013.
- Increased non-GAAP adjusted net income 375% to approximately $5.7 million, as compared to $1.2 million in 2013.
- Total income producing assets (defined as finance receivables, marketable securities and investment in unconsolidated subsidiaries less non-controlling interests) were approximately $50.6 million as of September 30, 2014, compared to $37.2 million as of December 31, 2013.
- $21.5 million in fresh capital deployed across four transactions.
Brett Pope, Chief Executive Officer of SWK, stated, “We continue to be excited about our progress in building out our life science alternative capital finance platform. We believe that our asset class represents one of the most compelling opportunities on a risk-adjusted return basis. The additional capital provided by our equity offerings gives us much greater capability to capitalize on this attractive niche.”
On August 18, 2014, SWK entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) and related agreements with Carlson Capital, L.P. and its affiliates (“Carlson”) pursuant to which in a series of transactions funds affiliated with Carlson (the “Stockholder”) will purchase new shares in the Company such that its ownership increases to 69.0%. SWK also agreed as part of the Purchase Agreement to conduct a Rights Offering as part of the series of transactions.
The series of transactions will occur as follows:
- First, on August 18, 2014, the Company consummated the issuance of 55,908,000 shares of common stock to the Stockholder at $1.37 per share for total proceeds of approximately $76.6 million.
- Second, a $12.5 million Rights Offering based on a subscription price of $0.86 per share. Existing stockholders, including Carlson based on its 28.9% ownership prior to the share issuance on August 18, 2014, may elect to participate in the Rights Offering on a pro rata basis. The Rights Offering commenced today.
- Lastly, following completion of the Rights Offering, the issuance of a to-be-determined number of shares to Stockholder at a price of $1.37 per share such that Carlson will have a voting 69.0% ownership interest in the Company.
With the Purchase Agreement and the Rights Offering, the Company expects to raise between approximately $89 million and $115 million in equity proceeds, based on non-Carlson stockholder participation in the Rights Offering of zero and 100%, respectively.
Stockholders of record as of October 30, 2014, will be eligible to participate in the Rights Offering. Pursuant to the Rights Offering, holders of shares of common stock will receive non-transferable rights to purchase newly issued shares of common stock of the Company. Each subscription right will entitle stockholders to purchase 0.345662431 shares of common stock of the Company at a subscription price of $0.86 per share. If the Rights Offering is fully subscribed, the Company will issue approximately 14,534,884 shares and receive gross proceeds of approximately $12.5 million. Carlson has agreed to act as a standby purchaser, and under certain circumstances, to acquire shares not subscribed for in the Rights Offering. The Rights Offering is scheduled to expire on November 24, 2014.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the equity financing for general corporate purposes.
As of September 30, 2014, the Company’s total income producing assets were approximately $50.6 million as compared to $37.2 million as of December 31, 2013.

|Less non-controlling interest||(5,033)||(5,613)|
|Total income producing assets||$||50,629||$||37,217|
SWK has funded an additional $36 million since September 30, 2014, through three transactions. SWK has now executed thirteen transactions under its new strategy, deploying approximately $106 million across a variety of opportunities:
- $16 million in four transactions where SWK purchased or financed royalties generated by the sales of life science products and related intellectual property;
- $82.5 million in seven transactions where SWK receives interest and other income by advancing capital in the form of secured debt backed by royalties paid by companies in the life science sector;
- $6 million in one transaction where SWK acquired an indirect interest in the U.S. marketing authorization rights to a pharmaceutical product where SWK ultimately receives cash flow distributions from the product; and
- $1.5 million in one transaction where SWK purchased shares of preferred stock.
SWK generated revenues of $3.7 million and $1.6 million for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, which were driven primarily by $1.9 million and $0.8 million, respectively, in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables and $1.8 million and $0.6 million, respectively, in income related to our investment in unconsolidated partnerships. SWK generated revenues of $10.7 million and $3.0 million for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, which were driven primarily by $5.9 million and $1.7 million, respectively, in interest and fees earned on our finance receivables and $4.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively, in income related to our investment in unconsolidated partnerships.
General and Administrative
General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation, stock-based compensation and related costs for management, staff, Board of Directors, legal and audit expenses, and corporate governance. General and administrative expenses increased by 144% to $1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 from $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, due primarily to increased professional fees and compensation expense. Approximately $0.5 million of the increase in compensation expense was due to accelerated vesting of equity compensation triggered by the consummation of the Purchase Agreement transaction. Despite the increase, as a percentage of revenue, general and administrative expenses remained unchanged at 30% between the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. General and administrative expenses increased by 99% to $2.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, from $1.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, due to increased professional fees and compensation expense. As a percentage of revenue, general and administrative expenses decreased to 24% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to 43% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.
Interest and Other Income (Expense), net
Interest and other income (expense), net was an expense of approximately $0.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, which consisted primarily of an approximately $0.6 million fair market value loss relating to the Tribute and Response Genetics warrants and to our warrant liability, and interest expense of approximately $0.1 million relating to our loan credit agreement. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, interest and other income (expense), net was an expense of approximately $0.1 million, which consisted primarily of an approximately $0.1 million fair market value loss relating to the Tribute warrant and to our warrant liability.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2014, SWK had $69.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $7.7 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2013. As of September 30, 2014, SWK had working capital of $70.8 million, compared to working capital of $8.7 million as of December 31, 2013. The increase in the Company’s working capital is primarily attributable to the Purchase Agreement, decreased by the net purchase of $11.7 million in finance receivables.
Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for the Third Quarter and the Nine Month Periods Ending September 30 of 2014
Net income under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”) for the three and nine month periods ending September 30, 2014, was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share, and $3.3 million, or $0.07 per share, respectively. The table below eliminates provisions for income taxes, non-cash mark-to-market changes on warrant assets and our warrant liability, and stock compensation expense due to accelerated vesting triggered by the consummation of the Purchase Agreement transaction. The following tables provide a reconciliation of our reported (GAAP) statements of operations to our adjusted statements of operations (Non-GAAP) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014:
|(in thousands, except per share data)|

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP (sometimes referred to herein as “reported”). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing the Company’s ongoing performance. In the presentation above, management has eliminated the following non-cash items: (i) transaction-related stock compensation expense as it was a one-time expense triggered by the Purchase Agreement, (ii) fair-market value of warrants as mark to market changes are non-cash, and (iii) income taxes as the Company has substantial net operating losses to offset against future income. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company’s performance.
Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components and Non-GAAP Adjusted basic and diluted EPS are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for GAAP net income and its components and basic and diluted EPS. Despite the importance of these measures to management in goal setting and performance measurement, we stress that these are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. Because of the non-standardized definitions, Non-GAAP Adjusted net income and its components (unlike U.S. GAAP net income and its components) may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies.
