Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $42.6 million, compared to $69.2 million for the second quarter of 2016. The results reflect a decline in Subsys® (fentanyl sublingual spray) prescription volumes due to softness in overall demand in the TIRF category.

Gross margin was 91% for both the second quarter of 2017 and 2016.

Sales and marketing expense was $13.3 million during the second quarter of 2017, or 31% of net revenue, compared to $19.7 million, or 28% of net revenue, for the second quarter of 2016.

Research and development expense decreased to $14.1 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $22.9 million for the second quarter of 2016, reflecting the timing of new product development costs.

General and administrative expense increased to $17.1 million for the second quarter of 2017 from $13.9 million for the second quarter of 2016.

Charges related to litigation award and government settlements were $4.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 and represent an estimated potential settlement with the State of Illinois.

Income tax benefit was $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to income tax expense of $668,000 during the second quarter of 2016.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $8.2 million, or ($0.11) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $6.0 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $1.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $9.5 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. The reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income is included at the end of this press release.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including regarding our (i) expectations that we will file at least one New Drug Application with the FDA each year for the next five years, (ii) belief that our product candidates will address the clinical shortcomings of existing commercial products, and (iii) our belief that our non-GAAP measures can be a meaningful indicator to both our management and investors. These forward-looking statements are based on management's expectations and assumptions as of the date of this press release; actual results may differ materially from those in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include, but are not limited to risk factors described in our filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including those factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, and subsequent updates that may occur in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release, and we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise these statements, except as may be required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share are not GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies. For a full reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income to GAAP net income, please see the attachments to this earnings release.

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

Net income, plus:

  • Interest income (expense), net;
  • The recorded provision for income taxes;
  • Depreciation and amortization; and
  • Non-cash expenses, such as stock compensation expense and accrual for expected litigation judgment.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA can be a meaningful indicator, to both Company 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 includes an add-back of non-cash and non-recurring operating expenses that may be subject to uncontrollable factors not reflective of the Company's true operational performance.

Adjusted net income, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:

Net income, plus:

  • The recorded provision for income taxes;
  • Non-cash expenses, such as stock compensation expense, non-cash interest, and non-cash other expense (i.e., accrual for expected litigation judgment); and;
  • Less an estimated cash tax provision, net of the benefit from utilizing NOL carry-forwards and windfalls from employee stock option exercises.

Adjusted net income per diluted share is equal to Adjusted net income divided by the diluted share count for the applicable period.

The Company believes that Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted shares are meaningful financial indicators, to both Company management and investors, in that they exclude non-cash income and expense items, as well as other income and expense items that are not expected to recur and therefore are not reflective of continuing operating performance.

While the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share in managing and analyzing its business and financial condition and believes these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance, each of these financial measures has certain shortcomings. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the impact of capital expenditures on either the liquidity or the GAAP financial performance of the Company and likewise omits share-based compensation expenses, which may vary over time and may represent a material portion of overall compensation expense. Adjusted net income does not take into account non-cash expenses that reflect the amortization of past expenditures, or include stock-based compensation, which is an important and material element of the Company's compensation package for its directors, officers and other key employees. As a result of the inherent limitations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures, the Company's management utilizes comparable GAAP financial measures to evaluate the business in conjunction with Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share and encourages investors to do likewise.
