Focus remains on advancing pipeline across cannabinoid and spray platforms
PHOENIX, Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY), a leader in the development, manufacture and commercialization of pharmaceutical cannabinoids (CBD) and spray technology, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2018.
“Our continuing commitment to the potential of CBD and our nasal spray technology to significantly improve the lives of patients was highlighted by several important milestones in the second quarter of 2018, as we continue to make progress against our strategic plan,” said Saeed Motahari, president and chief executive officer of INSYS Therapeutics. “We received encouraging results from our pharmacokinetics study of epinephrine nasal spray and initiated a Phase 2 study of CBD for Prader-Willi Syndrome. Furthermore, we believe we remain on track to submit an NDA for naloxone nasal spray by the end of 2018. These critical milestones are in keeping with our long-term goal to submit one NDA per year through 2021.”
Motahari continued, “Prescriptions for our primary commercial product, SUBSYS®, declined at a slower rate than the overall TIRF market in the second quarter. Our commercial efforts are showing signs of traction, as we gained prescription share in the TIRF market sequentially for the first time in seven quarters. These efforts include new managed care wins, patient education, upgrading the salesforce talent and optimizing territory alignment.”
Motahari added, “Albeit off a small base, prescriptions of SYNDROS® experienced a solid improvement in the second quarter as net revenue improved 56 percent sequentially, driven by the initial success of our patient access and educational programs. We remain resolute in our commitment to patients who rely on SYNDROS® and SUBSYS® and believe our product pipeline has the potential to significantly improve the lives of patients with unmet medical needs—particularly our two life-saving drug candidates, epinephrine and naloxone nasal sprays.”

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 loss and Adjusted net loss per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted net loss per diluted share are not GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of comprehensive loss and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company’s definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted net loss 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 loss to GAAP net income, please see the attachments to this earnings release.
Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:
Net loss, 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 loss, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:
Net loss, plus:
Adjusted net loss per diluted share is equal to Adjusted net loss divided by the diluted share count for the applicable period.
The Company believes that Adjusted net loss and Adjusted net loss per diluted share 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 loss and Adjusted net loss 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 loss 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 loss and Adjusted net loss per diluted share and encourages investors to do likewise.
