Management to Host Conference Call Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

ROSEVILLE, Minn., Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Calyxt, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLXT), a plant-based technology company, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

"We made significant progress in the second quarter, notably appointing Michael A. Carr as President and Chief Executive Officer where he will lead us in our efforts to advance the evolution of our plant-based technology platform," said Yves Ribeill, Ph.D., Executive Chair. "Our scientific and technical teams have made important advances across our hemp breeding technologies. In addition to successfully transforming the hemp genome, we also added triploid breeding technology, allowing for the development of "pollen-proof", seedless hemp. This is a significant innovation and marks the second step in our comprehensive approach to improving the hemp species and expanding its commercial potential."

"I'm excited to be joining the Calyxt team as we advance our mission to utilize plants to generate innovative, sustainable, and high-value products for customers and partners," said Mr. Carr. "The highly skilled team has built an impressive and unique plant-based technology platform. Calyxt has significant value to unlock through the commercialization of our product portfolio, proprietary technologies, and know-how. I look forward to working closely with the team to advance our exciting platform and realize this potential."

Key accomplishments in the second quarter of 2021 and through the date of this release include: 

  • Appointed Michael A. Carr as its President, Chief Executive Officer, and member of its Board of Directors effective July 27, 2021. Mr. Carr brings more than 20 years of business, financial and operational leadership experience to Calyxt and will focus on advancing and monetizing Calyxt's technologies. Most recently, he served as Vice President of M&A, Strategy, and Innovation at Darling Ingredients, Inc.
  • With the expansion of its hemp breeding platform, Calyxt is demonstrating industry leadership in modernizing the species. Calyxt has successfully transformed the genome and produced "pollen-proof" (seedless) hemp with its triploid breeding technology. Combined, Calyxt's hemp advancements offer significant advantages in innovation, crop management, and harvest potential. More broadly, Calyxt can now deliver hemp products tailored for the benefit of both growers and consumers, who are increasingly looking for plant-based and sustainable foods, materials, cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals, and more.
  • Completed the sale of more than 75% percent of the 2020 grain crop to date to ADM, with the remaining grain projected to be sold throughout 2021. This series of transactions, which began in the third quarter of 2020, has generated $27 million in total cash since sales commenced.
  • Net cash used by operating activities improved by $11.6 million from the same period a year ago driven primarily by an improvement in Calyxt's working capital investment associated with the change to the go-to-market strategy for its soybean product line and a lower net loss in the period driven by a reduction in operating expenses following that change in go-to-market strategy.
  • Promoted Sarah Reiter to the newly created role of Chief Business Officer, effective May 1, 2021. In this role Ms. Reiter is responsible for all of Calyxt's commercial activities, including securing strategic partners for the development and commercialization of products. She is also responsible for corporate communications and product marketing.

Go-To-Market Strategies and Current Development Pipeline

Calyxt's baseline go-to-market strategies include product development agreements, product license arrangements, and technology licensing agreements. Calyxt intends to move its current soybean product to a product license go-to-market strategy in 2022 and is currently in discussions with potential licensors.

Calyxt has seven publicly disclosed products in development that have a target commercial planting year, and for which it is actively seeking partners in all cases but alfalfa, where it has executed a commercialization agreement with S&W Seed Company (Nasdaq: SANW). A summary as of June 30, 2021, is as follows:

1 The agronomic and functional quality of product candidates and the timing of development are subject to a variety of factors and risks, which are described in Calyxt's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

Calyxt will selectively continue to develop the products in the table above to enable development and commercial agreements to be reached, and its baseline go-to-market strategies support modest capital requirements for these products. When commercialized by the licensors, the products are expected to deliver high margin royalty revenue streams.

Calyxt is also pursuing strategic product development opportunities. In these cases, Calyxt's core strengths of research and product development are aligned with the commercialization and downstream execution capabilities of a potential partner. Calyxt anticipates that these partnerships will reduce its capital requirements for research and development, result in near-term cash inflow, and provide opportunities for additional revenue streams over time, including high margin milestone and royalty or license payments.

"As our R&D team continues to innovate our development pipeline based on Calyxt's proprietary systems and advanced analytics platforms, the management team remains focused on the identification and development of high value customer- and partner-driven targets to expand the company's potential commercial footprint," said Dr. Ribeill.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2021

  • Revenue was $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $9.6 million, or 415 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The increase was driven by the volume and mix of product sold in the quarter, as Calyxt sold seed and 25 percent of the 2020 grain crop in the second quarter of 2021 as compared to the second quarter of 2020, when it was selling soybean oil and meal. As of June 30, 2021, Calyxt had sold over 75 percent of the 2020 grain crop.
  • Cost of goods sold was $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $6.2 million, or 117 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The increase was driven by higher volumes of product sold and higher average prices paid for grain due to increases in commodity market prices for soybeans. These increases were partially offset by the benefits resulting from the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal, as well as a $2.9 million year-over-year decrease in net realizable value adjustments to inventory, as the year ago period included costs to write down excess seed inventory and also reflected the margin profile of selling soybean oil and meal compared to selling grain, and $0.5 million of unrealized commodity derivative gains from hedging contracts sold to convert fixed price grain inventory and fixed price forward purchase contracts to floating prices to link them to market, consistent with how it expects to sell the grain.
  • Gross margin was $0.4 million, or 3 percent, in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $3.4 million or 112% percent from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement was primarily driven by the benefits resulting from the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal, as well as a $2.9 million year-over-year decrease in net realizable value adjustments to inventory as the year ago period included costs to write down excess seed inventory and also reflected the margin profile of selling soybean oil and meal compared to selling grain, and $0.5 million of unrealized commodity derivative gains from hedging contracts sold to convert fixed price grain inventory and fixed price forward purchase contracts to floating prices to link them to market, consistent with how it expects  to sell the grain.

Adjusted gross margin, a non-GAAP measure, was negative $1.2 million, or negative 10 percent, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to negative $0.8 million, or negative 34 percent, in the second quarter of 2020. The improvement on a percentage basis was driven by benefits resulting from the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal.

See below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" for a discussion of adjusted gross margin and a reconciliation of gross margin, the most comparable GAAP measure, to adjusted gross margin.

  • Total operating expenses were $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of $1.7 million, or 21 percent, from $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2020. The decrease was driven by lower personnel expenses as a result of cost reductions following the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal, as well as other reductions in operating expenses from the second quarter of 2020.
  • Net loss was $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $6.1 million, or 56 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement in net loss was driven by improved gross margins, reduced operating expenses, and the gain upon the extinguishment of Calyxt's Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loan. Net loss per share was $0.13 in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $0.20 per share, or 61 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement in net loss per share was driven by the change in net loss and the year-over-year increase in the weighted average share count.

Adjusted net loss was $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $0.8 million, or 9 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement in adjusted net loss was driven by the benefits resulting from the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal and reductions in operating expenses. Adjusted net loss per share was $0.21 in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $0.05 per share, or 19 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement in adjusted net loss per share was driven by the change in adjusted net loss and the year-over-year increase in the weighted average share count.

See below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" for a discussion of adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share, and reconciliations of net loss and net loss per share, the most comparable GAAP measures, to adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share. 

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $5.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $0.7 million, or 11 percent, from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement was driven by the benefits resulting from the move to sell grain compared to selling oil and meal and reductions in operating expenses.

See below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" for a discussion of adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of net loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, to adjusted EBITDA.

  • Net cash used by operating activities was $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $11.6 million from the second quarter of 2020. The improvement was driven primarily by an improvement in working capital investment associated with the change in go-to-market strategy for the soybean product line and a lower net loss in the period driven by a reduction in operating expenses following that change in go-to-market strategy.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $18.5 million as of June 30, 2021.

CFO Summary

"In the second quarter, we realized an $11.6 million year over year improvement in cash flow from operations as a result of increased product sales, improved gross margins and cash performance in the period, including expense management. We believe our cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of $18.5 million will fund our operations into the second half of 2022," said Bill Koschak, Calyxt's Chief Financial Officer.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

To supplement Calyxt's audited financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, it has prepared certain non-GAAP measures that include or exclude special items. These non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should be viewed as supplemental and in addition to financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, other companies may report similarly titled measures, but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as a comparative measure. Management utilizes these non-GAAP metrics as performance measures in evaluating and making operational decisions regarding Calyxt's business.

Calyxt presents adjusted gross margin, a non-GAAP measure that reflects adjustments necessary to present the underlying gross margin of our soybean product line, including (i) unrealized gains and losses associated with commodity derivatives entered into to hedge the change in value of fixed price grain inventories and fixed price forward purchase contracts that should be recognized in the future when the underlying inventory is sold, (ii) gains and losses from commodity derivatives realized in prior periods but associated with inventory sold in the current period, (iii) net realizable value adjustments to inventories occurring in the period, which otherwise would have been recognized in the future when the underlying inventory is sold, and (iv) net realizable value adjustments recognized in prior periods but associated with inventory sold in the current period.

Calyxt provides in the table below a reconciliation of gross margin, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to adjusted gross margin. It provides adjusted gross margin because it believes that this non-GAAP financial metric provides investors with useful supplemental information at this stage of commercialization as the amounts being adjusted affect the period-to-period comparability of gross margins and financial performance.

Calyxt presents adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, and define it as net loss excluding interest, net, depreciation and amortization expenses, non-cash stock-based compensation expenses including the recapture of non-cash stock compensation primarily associated with the departure of Section 16 officers, Section 16 officer transition expenses, the gain upon the extinguishment of Calyxt's PPP loan, and non-operating expenses, which are primarily gains and losses on foreign exchange transactions and losses on the disposals of land, buildings, and equipment, and including adjustments necessary to present the underlying gross margin of our soybean product line, including (i) unrealized gains and losses associated with commodity derivatives entered into to hedge the change in value of fixed price grain inventories and fixed price forward purchase contracts that should be recognized in the future when the underlying inventory is sold, (ii) gains and losses from commodity derivatives realized in prior periods but associated with inventory sold in the current period, (iii) net realizable value adjustments to inventories occurring in the period, which otherwise would have been recognized in the future when the underlying inventory is sold, and (iv) net realizable value adjustments recognized in prior periods but associated with inventory sold in the current period.

Calyxt provides in the table below a reconciliation of net loss, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to adjusted EBITDA. Because adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash items and discrete or infrequently occurring items, it believes that adjusted EBITDA provides investors with useful supplemental information about the operational performance of Calyxt's business and facilitates the period-to-period comparability of financial results where certain items may vary significantly independent of business performance.
