REHOVOT, Israel, and Hoboken, NJ – March 15, 2023 — Kamada Ltd. (NASDAQ: KMDA; TASE: KMDA.TA), a commercial stage global biopharmaceutical company with a portfolio of marketed products indicated for rare and serious conditions and a leader in the specialty plasma-derived field, today announced financial results for the 12 and three months ended December 31, 2022.
“The success of our rapid strategic transformation to a diversified, fully integrated specialty plasma company is evidenced by our impressive full-year 2022 financial results,” said Amir London, Kamada’s Chief Executive Officer. “We met our 2022 revenue and profitability guidance, with total revenues of $129.3 million, which represented 25% growth compared to 2021, and EBITDA of $17.8 million, a 3x increase over 2021. Moreover, we generated operating cash flow of $28.6 million during 2022, supporting the increase in our cash position to $34.3 million as of December 31, 2022. These impressive results were driven by our ability to leverage multiple growth drivers, including the portfolio of four FDA approved IgGs acquired in late 2021, the sales of which increased 24% year over year in 2022, KEDRAB sales in the U.S., GLASSIA royalties from Takeda, the sales of our other Proprietary products in the international markets, and our thriving Israeli distribution business,” continued Mr. London.
“Importantly, we expect the momentum from 2022 to extend throughout 2023, with profitability to be further enhanced. As such, we are introducing full-year 2023 revenue guidance of $138 million to $146 million and EBITDA guidance of $22 million to $26 million. Mid-point expected EBITDA represents approximately 35% growth year over year. Moreover, our multiple catalysts are anticipated to drive annual double-digit growth in the foreseeable years ahead, with significant upside potential and limited downside risk,” concluded Mr. London.

Non-IFRS financial measures
We present EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as net income, plus (i) tax expense, (ii) financial income (expense), net, (iii) depreciation and amortization; and (iv) non-cash share-based compensation expenses, because we use this non-IFRS financial measure to assess our operational performance, for financial and operational decision-making, and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. Management believes this non-IFRS financial measure are useful to investors because: (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and provide investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations; and (2) they exclude the impact of certain items that are not directly attributable to our core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the core operating performance of the business. Non-IFRS financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, our IFRS results. We expect to continue reporting non-IFRS financial measures, adjusting for the items described below, and we expect to continue to incur expenses similar to certain of the non-cash, non-IFRS adjustments described below. Accordingly, unless otherwise stated, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the presentation of non-IFRS financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under IFRS and do not purport to be an alternative to IFRS terms as an indicator of operating performance or any other IFRS measure. Moreover, because not all companies use identical measures and calculations, the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are defined as net income (loss), plus income tax expense, plus or minus financial income or expenses, net, plus or minus income or expense in respect of securities measured at fair value, net, plus or minus income or expenses in respect of currency exchange differences and derivatives instruments, net, plus depreciation and amortization expense, plus non-cash share-based compensation expenses and certain other costs.
