Financial Highlights for the First Half of 2023

  • Total revenue in the first half of 2023 was $277.0 million as compared to $287.0 million in the first half of 2022, reflective of lower revenue in the first quarter of the year.
  • Revenue from material sales was $147.3 million in the first half of 2023 as compared to $158.6 million in the first half of 2022. The decline in material sales revenue was primarily due to reduced sales volumes of material sold during the first quarter of the year.
  • Revenue from royalty and license fees was $119.6 million in the first half of 2023 as compared to $120.1 million in the first half of 2022.
  • Cost of material sales was $58.1 million in the first half of 2023 as compared to $54.9 million in the first half of 2022 primarily due to Shannon facility costs of $8.6 million and inventory provisions of $4.1 million, partially offset by reduced sales volumes in the first half of 2023 compared to the first half of 2022.
  • Total gross margin was 76% in the first half of 2023 as compared to 79% in the first half of 2022. Shannon facility costs of $8.6 million and the inventory provision of $4.1 million in 2023 contributed to the 3% decrease in total gross margin between periods.
  • Operating income was $104.0 million in the first half of 2023 as compared to $115.6 million in the first half of 2022.
  • Net income was $89.5 million or $1.87 per diluted share in the first half of 2023 compared to $91.5 million or $1.92 per diluted share in the first half of 2022.
