Warning Letter Update

As part of the Company’s efforts to remediate the issues identified in the FDA’s warning letter and to strengthen its quality systems, the Company has undertaken a comprehensive review of all of its products that was completed December 15th, 2020. While the review did not identify material issues with many of the Company’s products, it did identify issues of non-conformance with respect to certain products that the Company is actively reviewing and remediating. The Company believes there will be supply disruptions or process changes with respect to these products including product recalls, long-term production pauses, short-term clear path to market production pauses, and continued production with minor process corrections. The Company believes disruptions with respect to certain of its products and the diversion of resources to remediate the product quality issues will have a negative impact on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations and cash flows during the fourth quarter of 2020 and during 2021, including reducing its revenue, negatively impacting operating/(loss), and possibly resulting in impairment and other charges. Further, the Company anticipates that the FDA’s issuance of the warning letter and review of the Company’s processes will continue to delay the FDA’s pre-approval inspection for commercial production on the newly installed injectable line at the Buena, NJ facility. The continued failure to address the issues identified by the FDA in its warning letter and those subsequently identified by the Company in its comprehensive product quality review as well as the continued delay in obtaining the FDA’s pre-approval inspection for commercial production on the newly installed injectable line at the Buena, NJ facility will have a negative impact on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

COVID-19 Response Summary

In alignment with the directives in the state of New Jersey, as a Pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, we are considered "essential". We have and will continue to remain open as long as permitted and conditions remain safe for our employees in order to continue to supply our products to the patients that need them. Teligent has taken several preventative measures to help ensure business continuity, while maintaining safe and stable operations. We have directed all non-production, Quality or R&D employees, to continue working from home in accordance with state and local guidelines. We have implemented social distancing measures on-site at our manufacturing facility to protect employees and our products. Our employees are provided daily personal protective equipment upon their arrival to the site and we have implemented temperature monitoring services at our newly established single point of entrance. We have also implemented a more frequent sanitization process of the facility.

In order to preserve cash and align manufacturing-related resources with downward adjustments made to our production schedule, we initiated a reduction in force at our Buena, NJ manufacturing facility effective June 19, 2020. In connection with the reduction, the Company terminated 53 employees and furloughed another 15 employees. The Company’s employee base after these actions, coupled with the Company-wide effort to reduce recruitment initiated earlier in the year, is down 31% from the start of the year.

The Company provided terminated employees with a severance package and will continue to provide health insurance coverage to its furloughed employees. The associated one-time employee severance costs totaled $0.3 million, which were recorded in cost of revenues and product development and research expenses in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations and is adjusted in the Non-GAAP measurement tables on the other one-time expense line in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. In addition, the Company decided to shift its research and development operation being performed in its Tallinn, Estonia office to its US manufacturing site at Buena, New Jersey and subsequently to wind-down its Estonia operation. In September of 2020, the Company entered into a letter of intent with its former Chief Executive Officer, a related party of the Company to sell certain of Estonia's assets, primarily lab machinery, equipment and office furniture for a sales price of $125 thousand in cash.

Other Matter

2023 Series D Convertible Notes

On September 22, 2020, the Company completed the issuance of approximately $27.5 million aggregate principal amount of 2023 Series D Convertible Notes in exchange for approximately $59.0 million in aggregate principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of 2023 Series A Convertible Notes, giving effect to a 53.4% discount on the principal amount of the 2023 Series A Convertible Notes exchanged. The Company also issued approximately $0.4 million aggregate principal amount of the 2023 Series D Convertible Notes in exchange for approximately $0.5 million in aggregate principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of the Company’s outstanding 2023 Series B Convertible Notes, giving effect to a 31.9% discount on the principal amount of the 2023 Series B Convertible Notes exchanged.

Following the issuance of the 2023 Series D Convertible Notes, all amounts owed with respect to the 2023 Series A Convertible Notes and 2023 Series B Convertible Notes had been paid and the related indentures and the Company’s obligations thereunder were satisfied and discharged.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions, and other statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts and statements identified by words such as “plan,” “believe,” “continue,” “should” or words of similar meaning. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these expectations include, but are not limited to: our inability to meet current or future regulatory requirements in connection with existing or future ANDAs; our inability to achieve profitability; our failure to obtain FDA approvals as anticipated; our inability to execute and implement our business plan and strategy; the potential lack of market acceptance of our products; our inability to protect our intellectual property rights; changes in global political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory factors; and our inability to successfully complete future product acquisitions. These statements are based on our current beliefs or expectations and are inherently subject to various risks and uncertainties, including those set forth under the caption “Risk Factors” in Teligent, Inc.’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other periodic reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Teligent, Inc. does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this document as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial information required in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Teligent is also presenting EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs are non-GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of operations and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Teligent's definition of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs, and adjusted net loss may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net loss, plus:

Depreciation expense

Amortization of intangibles

Interest expense and other expenses, net

Amortization of debt issuance costs, debt discounts and debt extinguishment

Impairment charges

Provision for income taxes

Foreign currency exchange loss

Changes in the fair value of derivatives

Non-cash stock-based compensation expense

Other one-time expense

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful indicator, to both management and investors, of the past and expected ongoing operating performance of the Company. EBITDA is a commonly used and widely accepted measure of financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is deemed by the Company to be a useful performance indicator because it adds back non-cash and non-recurring operating expenses which have little to no bearing on the Company's cash flows, may subject to uncontrollable factors and not reflective of the Company's true operational performance.

The Company uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs in managing and analyzing its business and financial condition. Even though it believes that these financial measurements are useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance, it also believes these financial measurements are subject to certain shortcomings. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs do not take into account the impact of capital expenditures on either the liquidity or the financial performance of the Company or omitting share-based compensation expenses that may vary over time but represent a material portion of the overall compensation expense. Due to the inherent limitations of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA before product development and research costs, the Company's management utilizes comparable GAAP financial measures to evaluate the business in conjunction with EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA before product, development and research costs and encourages investors to do likewise.

The Company also presents a non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted net income/(loss) per diluted share, to show the adjusted net income/(loss) when EBITDA adjustments are added back or subtracted out of the traditional GAAP reported net income/(loss). Adjusted diluted earnings per share, as defined by the Company, is equal to adjusted net income/(loss) divided by the actual or anticipated diluted share count for the applicable period.
