– Company to host conference call today at 8:30am EST –
DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Neos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEOS), a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company utilizing its novel microparticle delivery technology to develop and manufacture central nervous system-focused products, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 and provided a business update.
“During the third quarter of 2019, we reported 40 percent year-over-year revenue growth, which, combined with our continued improvement in quarterly operating net loss, highlights the strong progress we have made toward our goal of achieving profitability,” said Jerry McLaughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, we continued to increase the number of pharmacies included in our Neos RxConnect patient assistance program, and believe the further expansion of this network will be an important future growth driver for our business. We are also very excited about the progress we have made with our lead pipeline candidate, NT0502, which we expect to enter Phase 1 clinical trials shortly. There is a large unmet need for new treatments for sialorrhea, and we believe that we can uniquely meet this need with a novel mechanism that leverages our microparticle technology. We believe NT0502 has the potential to become the standard of treatment for sialorrhea and truly improve the lives of patients and their caregivers.”
ADHD Commercial Franchise
- Growth in Net Revenue Per Pack Reflects Successful Shift to More Profitable Business Channels and Market Segments: Neos reported growth in net product sales and net revenue per pack for its two core commercial attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) products, Adzenys XR-ODT® and Cotempla XR-ODT®, for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
|Net Revenue per Pack|
|Q3 2019||Q3 2018||% Change|
- Executing on Back-to-School Commercial Strategy and Expanding Availability of Neos RxConnect Network Pharmacies: During the third quarter of 2019, the Company actively deployed new marketing campaigns for its two core products and substantially expanded the number of participating pharmacies in the Neos RxConnect network. With the pending addition of a large, regional grocery store chain, the Company expects that there will be approximately 460 pharmacies in the network at the end of November 2019, representing more than a 200% increase since the end of the third quarter of 2019.
- Prescriptions for ADHD Products: In the third quarter of 2019, as reported by IQVIA, aggregate prescriptions for Adzenys XR-ODT and Cotempla XR-ODT decreased by 6 percent compared to the third quarter of 2018, consistent with the change in commercial strategy the Company unveiled in late 2018. Specifically, Adzenys XR-ODT and Cotempla XR-ODT prescriptions totaled 52,321 and 36,174, respectively, in the third quarter of 2019 compared to 58,873 and 35,690, respectively, in the third quarter of 2018.
Financial and Pipeline Highlights
- Substantial Progress Toward Operational Profitability: For the fifth consecutive fiscal quarter, the Company reduced its quarterly net loss. For the third quarter of 2019, net loss narrowed to $2.1 million, down from $12.7 million in the third quarter of 2018, reflecting the evolution of the commercial strategy from volume-based to profitable growth and the Company’s focus on both operational productivity and expense management.
- NT0502 to Enter Phase 1 Clinical Trials Near-Term: The Company’s lead pipeline candidate, NT0502, is a new chemical entity and a selective muscarinic receptor antagonist that utilizes the same microparticle technology used in the Company’s four commercial products. NT0502 is being developed to address the significant unmet medical need for the treatment of chronic sialorrhea (excessive drooling) in adult and pediatric patients with neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, mental retardation and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The Company plans to initiate a Phase 1 trial in the first quarter of 2020.
