Insys Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

20:00 EDT 5 Aug 2015 | Marketwired

PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/15 -- Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY) ("Insys" or "the Company") today announced financial results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2015. Highlights of and subsequent to the second quarter of 2015 include:

"Insys had another strong quarter, driven by our thirteenth consecutive quarter of Subsys sales growth. While we expect this will remain our largest near-term revenue driver, we are very pleased to have submitted the NDA for Dronabinol Oral Solution," said Michael L. Babich, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe our liquid formulation has distinct advantages over the current soft gel capsule formulation of dronabinol, and look forward to making our improved formulation available to the many patients suffering from AIDS-related anorexia and chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting."

"We continue to advance multiple R&D projects, including our buprenorphine, ondansetron, and buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual sprays and our pharmaceutical cannabidiol ("CBD") formulation. By continuing to focus our clinical, regulatory, and commercial expertise on developing and successfully commercializing innovative products, we expect to deliver long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Babich.

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $77.6 million compared to $55.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 39%. A summary of total revenue is outlined below (in millions):

Gross margin was 89% for the second quarter of 2015 compared with 88% for the second quarter of 2014. The increase in gross margin was due primarily to the decrease in sales of Dronabinol SG Capsule, a lower margin product, in the 2015 quarter. We do not expect meaningful revenue from sales of Dronabinol SG Capsule in future periods.

Sales and marketing expense was $22.0 million during the second quarter of 2015, compared to $14.1 million for the second quarter of 2014. The increase was a result of expansion of our sales force associated with the increase in sales of Subsys and increased marketing expenses during the second quarter of 2015.

Research and development expense increased to $17.8 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2014, primarily as a result of Insys' pipeline development investments during 2014 and 2015 year-to-date, including the ongoing Phase 1/2 safety and pharmacokinetic study in pediatric subjects with treatment-resistant seizures.

General and administrative expense increased to $15.2 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, primarily resulting from costs incurred in connection with various legal matters, which includes a charge of $1.1 million associated with the Oregon Department of Justice ("ODOJ") settlement discussed further below. Charges related to a court ruling in connection with litigation between the Company and a former employee were $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2015.

Income tax expense was $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2015, reflecting an effective corporate tax rate of 40%.

Net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $7.3 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $9.5 million, or $0.14 per basic and $0.13 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $15.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $20.9 million, or $0.29 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.

Liquidity

The Company had $145.1 million in cash, restricted cash, cash equivalents, and short-term and long-term investments, no debt, and $204.0 million in stockholders' equity as of June 30, 2015.

Pursuant to a two-for-one stock split of Insys' common stock declared by Insys' Board of Directors, shareholders of record as of May 26, 2015 received one additional share of Insys Therapeutics, Inc. common stock, par value $0.01, for each share they held as of the record date.

Total shares outstanding increased from approximately 35.7 million to 71.4 million shares.

Subsequent Events

ODOJ Settlement In connection with an investigation by the ODOJ, the Company has entered into a settlement agreement with the ODOJ, referred to as an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance ("AVC"), and agreed to make monetary payments totaling approximately $1.1 million. The AVC requires Insys to maintain certain controls and processes around its promotional and sales activity related to Subsys in Oregon, and creates affirmative obligations to comply with applicable laws.

This AVC expressly provides that the Company does not admit any violation of law or regulation. This settlement was reached as result of our cooperation with the ODOJ's investigation and after producing documents in response to certain CIDs and related requests for information from the ODOJ. The Company is committed to complying with laws governing its sales, marketing and promotional practices and has implemented a comprehensive compliance program based on the elements of an effective compliance program and industry practices.

About Insys Therapeutics, Inc.
Insys Therapeutics is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes innovative drugs and novel drug delivery systems of therapeutic molecules that improve the quality of life of patients. Using proprietary sublingual spray technology and capabilities to develop pharmaceutical cannabinoids, Insys addresses the clinical shortcomings of existing commercial products. Insys currently markets two products: Subsys® (fentanyl sublingual spray), and a generic version of Dronabinol (THC) capsules. The Company recently submitted a New Drug Application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for Dronabinol Oral Solution, a proprietary, orally administered liquid formulation of dronabinol that Insys believes has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule. Insys is developing a pipeline of sublingual sprays, as well as pharmaceutical cannabidiol.

Subsys® is a registered trademark of Insys Therapeutics, Inc.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements including regarding our expectations on future revenue generated by Subsys and regarding our expectations for our research and development and clinical efforts, including statements related to our belief that our Dronabinol Oral Solution formulation has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule. 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, 2014 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:

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:

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.
