Aug 12, 2015, 16:05 ET from Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMMY), a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary compounded drug formulations, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Management will discuss the financial results and recent business updates on a conference call this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. EDT.

Key Second Quarter 2015 Accomplishments and Recent Developments

Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues reported for the second quarter 2015 were $2.0 million, representing a 195% increase over revenues of $0.7 million recorded for the same period of 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(2.6) million, or approximately $(0.28) per share of common stock, for the second quarter compared to $(1.9) million, or approximately $(0.21) per share of common stock, for the same period a year ago.
  • Sales of the Company's proprietary Tri-Moxi and Tri-Moxi-Vanc compounded injectable formulations for the second quarter 2015 were $0.5 million, an increase of over 900% compared to the same quarter a year ago, and a 60% increase when compared to the first quarter 2015.
  • Second quarter 2015 sales for the Company's combination topical eye drop formulations totaled $96,000. Sales momentum for these topical eye drop formulations have continued, as Imprimis expects to more than triple that revenue total in the third quarter.
  • Sales of HLA compounded formulations in the second quarter were $165,000, with an additional $50,000 in royalty revenues from legacy HLA sub-licensees. Imprimis has transitioned all legacy HLA formulation prescriptions to its compounding pharmacies and converted 26 prescribing interstitial cystitis (IC) specialist physicians to its platform.
  • To date, the average monthly value for each HLA prescription has been approximately $1,600 per month for paid and pending orders.
  • Gross margins increased to 47% for the second quarter in 2015 compared to 29% for the same period last year. The increase was primarily attributable to continued implementation of pharmacy efficiencies and increased sales of the Company's proprietary compounded formulations.
  • Completed the term loan agreement with an affiliate of Life Sciences Alternative Funding LLC for up to $15 million in proceeds, subject to certain conditions.
  • As of June 30, 2015, the Company had $10 million in cash and cash equivalents.

  • Acquired the rights to new proprietary formulations, in a novel troche format, for conscious sedation of patients undergoing ophthalmic surgery and other surgical procedures.
  • Completed an international licensing agreement to expand the Company's Dropless Therapy and LessDrops combination drop formulations into Canada.
  • Gained exclusive U.S. commercial rights to the patented HLA compounded formulation for the treatment of symptoms associated with patients with IC.
  • Publication of HLA study in the Canadian Journal of Urology demonstrating the benefits of heparin and alkalinized lidocaine combination formulation for the relief of IC symptoms.
  • Launched the Defeat IC™ educational campaign during the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting in May 2015 to help increase awareness among medical practitioners and patients in the U.S. affected by IC.
  • Introduced lyophilized Tri-Mix compounded formulations for erectile dysfunction (ED) and launched the associated ED free™ educational campaign at the May AUA annual meeting.

ImprimisRx Pharmacy Operations

  • Ongoing efficiency measures being implemented at the Company's compounding centers resulted in increased productivity per employee while at the same time added personnel enhanced client services.
  • Completed the acquisition of JT Pharmacy, Inc., d/b/a Central Allen Pharmacy, based near Dallas, Texas. Imprimis now has distribution capabilities to an aggregate of 45 states, including California, Texas, Florida, New York and Illinois.
  • Continued construction efforts of a 8,600 square foot leased facility in Roxbury, New Jersey, which is expected to serve as the new location for the Company's New Jersey-based pharmacy and include a separate state-of-the-art outsourcing facility intended to comply with cGMP manufacturing standards and Section 503B of the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Mark L. Baum, Chief Executive Officer of Imprimis, stated, "We are pleased with the significant growth in our sales revenues recorded in the second quarter.  We continue to execute on our 2015 land and expand focus and during the quarter introduced an array of complementary proprietary and non-proprietary ophthalmic and urologic offerings.  To help manage this growth, we have refined our pharmacy operations workflow to help increase productivity and created a dedicated internal client services team who are committed to providing first-in-class customer care and billing services.  Looking forward, we expect a ramp-up of sales during the remainder of the year and into 2016, especially the sales of our compounded HLA formulation.  We believe we are well-positioned for sustained growth and future profitability."

2015 Revenue Outlook

For the year ending December 31, 2015, the Company expects total revenue of $12.0 million to $13.5 million. The Company's revenue guidance includes the incremental contributions from the acquisition of JT Pharmacy, which closed in August 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to the company's results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), which are presented and discussed above, management also utilizes adjusted EBITDA, an unaudited financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the company's financial results and performance and to plan and forecast future periods. Adjusted EBITDA is considered a "non-GAAP" financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the SEC.  Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting its business.  Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the company's performance because (i) it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making; (ii) it excludes the impact of non-cash or, when specified, non-recurring items that are not directly attributable to the company's core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the company's core operating performance; and (iii) it is used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help analyze the company's results.  However, adjusted EBITDA and any other non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures used by the company and the manner in which they are calculated may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures or the calculations of the same non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the company's competitors.

The company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding the effects of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, other income (expense) and, if any and when specified, other non-recurring income or expense items.  The company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to adjusted EBITDA is net loss. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations and should not be considered as an alternative to gross profit or net loss as a measure of operating performance or to net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of ability to meet cash needs.

The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure, net loss, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 (in thousands):
