RAMSEY, N.J. and BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADMA Biologics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADMA) (ADMA or the Company), a commercial biopharmaceutical company dedicated to manufacturing, marketing and developing specialty plasma-derived biologics for the treatment of immunodeficient patients at risk for infection and the prevention of certain infectious diseases, today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2019, and provided an overview of its recent corporate achievements.

“To date, 2019 has been a transformational year for ADMA, marked most importantly by the recent re-launch and launch, respectively, and first commercial sales of our lead assets BIVIGAM and ASCENIV, both indicated for the treatment of patients with primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI),” said Adam Grossman, ADMA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our commercial rollouts are off to an encouraging early start for our IVIG brands. As we look ahead to the remainder of 2019 and into 2020, we remain focused on maximizing these initial product launches and executing on several strategic corporate initiatives aimed at growing our overall revenues, including potentially expanding the capacity at our manufacturing facility, opening new plasma collection centers, as well as growing our commercial team and hiring additional staff to support the anticipated production ramp up for 2020 and beyond.”

Third Quarter 2019 and Recent Highlights

-- BIVIGAM and ASCENIV Now Commercially Available in the U.S. – Following FDA approval of both products, ADMA commercially launched its lead intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) products BIVIGAM and ASCENIV and recorded its first commercial sales for both products. -- Presented key ASCENIV data at IDWeek 2019 – Key supportive data highlighting the encouraging results of ASCENIV for the treatment of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in immunocompromised children were presented at IDWeek 2019. The data described how ASCENIV demonstrated positive outcomes when used under the Company’s compassionate use program to treat documented RSV lower respiratory tract infections in two immunocompromised children at the Mayo Clinic. -- Named “Company of the Year” by BioFlorida – ADMA was recently named “Company of the Year” by BioFlorida, in recognition of the Company’s significant achievements over the past year. -- Published Manufacturing Process Optimization Article inImmunotherapy – A manuscript highlighting ADMA’s manufacturing process optimization for BIVIGAM and ASCENIV was published in the peer-reviewed journal Immunotherapy.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 were $7.2 million, compared to $4.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, representing an increase of $3.0 million, or approximately 71%. The increase in revenues was primarily due to increased production and sales of IVIG and related products manufactured at the Boca Facility.

Consolidated net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $11.4 million, or $(0.19) per basic and diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of $15.1 million, or $(0.33) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in net loss of $3.7 million was primarily due to the $3.0 million of higher revenues and a $1.7 million reduction in total operating expenses, partially offset by higher interest expense of $1.2 million. The reduction in operating expenses was comprised of (i) lower product revenue costs of $1.2 million attributable to a reduction in underabsorbed manufacturing expenses, (ii) lower research and development expenses of $0.5 million related to the FDA approval of ASCENIV earlier in 2019, (iii) lower plasma center expenses of $1.5 million resulting from the transfer of two of our plasma centers on January 1, 2019 in connection with the acquisition of the Boca Facility; partially offset by (iv) higher selling, general and administrative expenses of $1.5 million attributable to expenses associated with the BIVIGAM and ASCENIV product launches and enhancements to our information technology and customer support infrastructure necessary to support our commercialization activities. Included in the net loss for the third quarter 2019 were non-cash expenses of approximately $1.8 million for stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, and non-cash interest expense.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $17.3 million, compared to $12.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, representing an increase of $4.4 million, or approximately 34%. The increase in revenues was primarily due to increased production and sales of IVIG and related products manufactured at the Boca Facility.

Consolidated net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $37.7 million, or $(0.72) per basic and diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of $47.7 million, or $(1.06) per basic and diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The decrease in net loss of $10.0 million was primarily due to the $4.4 million of higher revenues and lower total operating expenses of $5.8 million, which reflects reductions in product revenue costs of $3.2 million, research and development costs of $1.1 million and plasma center operating expenses of $3.8 million, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses of $2.4 million. Included in the net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were non-cash expenses of approximately $5.2 million for stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, and non-cash interest expense.

At September 30, 2019, ADMA had cash and cash equivalents of $48.0 million and accounts receivable of $7.3 million, as compared to cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable of $22.8 million and $1.4 million, respectively, at December 31, 2018. ADMA’s net working capital as of September 30, 2019 was $82.2 million, as compared to $34.9 million as of December 31, 2018.

About Primary Humoral Immunodeficiency

Primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI), also known as primary immune deficiency disease (PIDD), is a class of inherited genetic disorders that causes an individual to have a deficient or absent immune system. According to the World Health Organization, there are approximately 350 different genetic mutations encompassing PI. Some disorders present at birth or in early childhood and the disorders can affect anyone regardless of age or gender. Some affect a single part of the immune system, others may affect one or more components of the system. PI patients are vulnerable to infections and are more likely to suffer complications from these infections compared to individuals with a normal functioning immune system. Because patients suffering from PI lack a properly functioning immune system, they typically receive monthly treatment with polyclonal immune globulin products. Without this exogenous antibody replacement, these patients would remain vulnerable to persistent and chronic infections. Initially thought to be very rare, it is now estimated that the prevalence of PI in the U.S. is 1 in 1,200, which translates to approximately 250,000 people.

About BIVIGAM®

BIVIGAM (immune globulin intravenous, human – 10% liquid) is a plasma-derived, polyclonal, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG). BIVIGAM was approved by the FDA in May 2019 and is indicated for the treatment of primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI), including, but not limited to the following group of genetic disorders: X-linked and congenital agammaglobulinemia, common variable immunodeficiency, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and severe combined immunodeficiency. BIVIGAM contains a broad range of antibodies similar to those found in normal human plasma. These antibodies are directed against bacteria and viruses and help to protect PI patients against serious infections. BIVIGAM is a purified, sterile, ready-to-use preparation of concentrated human Immunoglobulin (IgG) antibodies.

About ASCENIV™ (Formerly RI-002)

ASCENIV (immune globulin intravenous, human – slra 10% liquid) is a plasma-derived, polyclonal, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG). ASCENIV was approved by the FDA on April 1, 2019 and is indicated for the treatment of primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI), also known as primary immune deficiency disease (PIDD), in adults and adolescents (12 to 17 years of age). ASCENIV is manufactured using ADMA’s unique, patented plasma donor screening methodology and tailored plasma pooling design, which blends normal source plasma and plasma from donors tested using the Company’s proprietary microneutralization assay. ASCENIV contains naturally occurring polyclonal antibodies, which are proteins that are used by the body’s immune system to neutralize microbes, such as bacteria and viruses and prevent against infection and disease. ASCENIV is protected by U.S. Patents: 9,107,906, 9,714,283 and 9,815,886.
