Second Quarter 2017 Segmental Results
North America segment revenue of $45.5 million for three months ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $34.8 million or 43%, compared to the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to a $15.0 million decrease from Plaquenil® authorized generic, a $4.7 million decrease from Nilandron®, and a $6.3 million decrease from Donnatal® as a result of additional competitive pressures that resulted in losses of market share. Donnatal® has continued to face pressure from a non-FDA approved product being distributed by a competitor, and during the second quarter of 2017, the Company became aware of the launch of an additional competitive product to Donnatal®.
Second quarter 2017 revenue for the North America segment increased by approximately 9% compared to first quarter 2017 revenue of $41.8 million, primarily due to higher volumes from Plaquenil® and Lanoxin® authorized generic.
International segment revenue of $115.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $36.1 million or 24%, compared to the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was partially attributable to a $17.1 million decrease in revenue as a result of the foreign currency impact of the Great British Pound (GBP) weakening against the USD. Additionally, there was a $4.3 million decrease from Prednisolone; a $3.1 million decrease from Nefopam; a $2.9 million decrease from Liothyronine Sodium; a $1.5 million decrease from Hydrocortisone; a $2.9 million decrease from Trazadone; and a $1.1 million decrease from Levothyroxine Sodium. These lower product volumes and revenues are primarily due to competitive market pressures.
Second quarter 2017 revenue for the Concordia International segment decreased by $3.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2017. The sequential decline was primarily due to additional competitive pressures on the segment's product portfolio.
During the second quarter of 2017, the Company also became aware of a marketing authorization granted by the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency in the United Kingdom for a competitive product to Liothyronine Sodium.
During the second quarter of 2017, the Company launched three new products into markets that have a current IMS-estimated value of $3 million.
Concordia also has 14 products that have already been approved or are awaiting approval. These products, if launched, are expected to compete in markets that have a current IMS-estimated value in excess of $100 million.
In addition, the Company currently has 26 products (compared to 8 products in the first quarter of 20l7) under development that are anticipated to launch in the next three to five years. The Company believes that these products, if launched, will compete in markets that have a current IMS-estimated value in excess of $1.5 billion.
Concordia believes that these products include several first-to-market or early-to-market opportunities for difficult-to-make products.
In addition, the Company has 16 products identified for potential development that, if launched, are expected to compete in markets that have a current IMS-estimated value in excess of $500 million.
In total, Concordia's pipeline is comprised of more than 50 products that could compete in markets that have a current IMS-estimated value in excess of $2 billion.

Consolidated Results of Operations
Revenue for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $70.9 million, or 31%, and $138.9 million, or 30%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. These decreases are due to lower sales from both the Concordia North America and Concordia International segments, as well as lower foreign exchange rates impacting translated results. The Concordia North America segment revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 decreased by 43% when compared to the corresponding period in 2016, mainly due to lower volumes on key products including Plaquenil®, Nilandron® and Donnatal®. The Concordia International segment revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 decreased by 24% when compared to the corresponding period, of which 11% is due to the impact of lower foreign exchange rates between USD/GBP. The remaining decrease of 13% is due to volume declines on key products including Liothyronine Sodium, Prednisolone and Nefopam.
Gross profit for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $66.3 million, or 37%, and $110.7 million, or 33%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016 primarily due to the impact of the factors described above. The decrease in gross profit percentage of 8% for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, is primarily due to a change in the mix of product sales within both the Concordia North America segment and Concordia International segment. The decrease in gross profit percentage of 2% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 is lower than the 8% for the three month period ended June 30, 2017, as the first quarter of 2016 included a non-cash fair value adjustment to inventory of $18.6 million associated with the acquisition of the Concordia International segment.
Operating expenses for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 increased by $400.0 million, or 58%, and $392.2 million, or 49%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. Operating expenses were higher primarily due to a $420.0 million higher impairment charge on a quarter and year-to-date basis. Excluding impairments, operating expenses for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $20.0 million, or 16%, and $27.9 million, or 12%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. This decrease is primarily due to $13.5 million lower litigation settlements, $6.9 million lower change in fair value of purchase consideration, $6.4 million lower share based compensation expense and $4.7 million lower selling and marketing costs, partially offset by $15.1 millionhigher amortization expense. The decrease in operating expenses for the six month period ended June 30, 2017, excluding impairments, is primarily due to $13.5 millionlower litigation settlements, $15.1 million lower change in fair value of purchase consideration, $11.8 million lower share based compensation expense and $8.3 million lower selling and marketing costs, partially offset by $25.2 million higher amortization expense.
General and administrative expenses reflect costs related to salaries and benefits, professional and consulting fees, ongoing public company costs, travel, facility leases and other administrative expenditures. General and administrative expenses for the three month period ended June 30, 2017 increased by 4% compared to the corresponding period in 2016. This increase is due to the timing of certain general and administration costs incurred in 2017 as compared to 2016. General and administrative expenses for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 decreased by 4% as a result of the objective to minimize corporate costs as well as a positive impact of foreign exchange rates on translated general and administrative expenses from the Concordia International segment.
Selling and marketing expenses reflect costs incurred by the Company for the marketing, promotion and sale of the Company's broad portfolio of products across the Company's segments. Selling and marketing costs for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $4.7 million, or 35%, and $8.3 million, or 31%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. These costs have decreased primarily due to the termination of the Donnatal® contract sales force in 2016, which has been replaced by a co-promotion agreement with RedHill Biopharma Ltd., as well as a positive impact of foreign exchange rates on translated selling and marketing expenses from the Concordia International segment.
Research and development expenses reflect costs for clinical trial activities, product development, professional and consulting fees and services associated with the activities of the medical, clinical and scientific affairs, quality assurance costs, regulatory compliance and drug safety costs (Pharmacovigilence) of the Company. Research and development costs for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $2.4 million, or 25%, and $3.3 million, or 18%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. This decrease is due to fewer ongoing clinical programs in 2017 compared with 2016, including the cancellation of the cholangiocarcinoma trial in December 2016, and the Company moving certain external costs previously incurred within the Concordia North America segment to the Company's operations in Mumbai, India.
The current income tax expense recorded for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 decreased by $9.5 million and $12.2 million, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. Income taxes were lower primarily due to the impact of lower foreign exchange translation from the Concordia International segment as well as lower taxable income due to lower revenues compared to corresponding periods in 2016.
The net loss from continuing operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 was $1,010.7 million, and $1,089.5 million, respectively, and earnings per share loss was $19.78 and $21.32, respectively. Significant components comprising the net loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2017 are an impairment charge of $987.1 million recorded during the second quarter of 2017, fair value losses on derivative contracts of $48.1 million, interest and accretion expense of $186.8 million and amortization of $124.2 million offset by gross profit of $226.7 million.
Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 of $81.8 million and $166.1 million respectively, decreased by $60.5 million, or 43%, and $117.1 million, or 41%, respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2016. The decline is primarily due to lower sales and gross margins from both the Concordia North America and Concordia International segments, as well as lower foreign exchange rates impacting translated results.
Adjusted EBITDA by segment for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 was $29.0 million and $55.6 million, respectively, from Concordia North America and $58.1 million and $121.3 million, respectively, from Concordia International. In addition, during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 the Company incurred $5.2 million and $10.9 million, respectively, of Corporate costs related to the Corporate Head Office.
As of June 30, 2017, the Company had cash of $301.8 million. The Company's credit agreement dated October 21, 2015 also provides for a revolving credit facility, which is undrawn. The Company is currently not subject to financial maintenance covenants under its credit agreement. These financial maintenance covenants are applicable only in the event that the aggregate principal amount of outstanding revolving loans under the Company's credit agreement is greater than 30% of the aggregate amount, or $60 million of the revolving facility.
As at June 30, 2017 and August 10, 2017 the Company had 51,112,180 and 51,143,978 common shares issued and outstanding.

This press release makes reference to certain measures that are not recognized measures under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). These non-IFRS measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. When used, these measures are defined in such terms as to allow the reconciliation to the closest IFRS measure. These measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company's results of operations from management's perspective. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute to the Company's financial information reported under IFRS. Management uses non-IFRS measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share ("Adjusted EPS") to provide investors with supplemental information of the Company's operating performance and thus highlight trends in the Company's core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. Management also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Management also uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets, to assess its ability to meet future debt service requirements, in making capital expenditures, and to consider the business's working capital requirements. Readers are cautioned that the non-IFRS measures contained herein may not be appropriate for any other purpose.
As used herein, adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit adjusted for non-cash fair value increases to the cost of acquired inventory from a business combination. Under IFRS, acquired inventory is required to be written-up to fair value at the date of acquisition. As this inventory is sold the fair value adjustment represents a non-cash cost of sale amount that has been excluded in adjusted gross profit in order to normalize gross profit for this non-cash component.

EBITDA is defined as net income / loss adjusted for interest and accretion expense, interest income, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Management uses EBITDA to assess the Company's operating performance.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain charges including costs associated with acquisitions, restructuring initiatives, and other costs (which includes onerous contract costs and direct costs associated with contractual terminations), initial exchange listing expenses on the NASDAQ, non-operating gains / losses, integration costs, legal settlements (net of insurance recoveries) and related legal costs, non-cash items such as unrealized gains / losses on derivative instruments, share based compensation, fair value changes including purchase consideration and derivative financial instruments, asset impairments, fair value increases to inventory arising from purchased inventory from a business combination, gains / losses from the sale of assets and unrealized gains / losses related to foreign exchange. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, among other Non-IFRS financial measures, as the key metric in assessing business performance when comparing actual results to budgets and forecasts. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance and cash flow, and provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in the underlying business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures.
