RAMSEY, N.J. and BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADMA Biologics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADMA) (“ADMA” or the “Company”), an end-to-end commercial biopharmaceutical company dedicated to manufacturing, marketing and developing specialty plasma-derived biologics, today reported financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2021, its fiscal second quarter, and provided an overview of recent progress and accomplishments.
“ADMA continues to achieve milestones and execute on its commercial and operational strategies as evidenced by the strong second quarter financial results and regulatory successes. The totality of the year-to-date accomplishments across business segments has the Company well-positioned to sustain quarter-over-quarter revenue growth with improving margins for the foreseeable future,” said Adam Grossman, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADMA.
“Less than two years into ADMA’s commercial launch of its intravenous immune globulin (“IVIG”) product portfolio, the Company generated record quarterly revenues of $17.8 million, representing an increase of 129% year-over-year. This top-line growth is particularly impressive in light of the pandemic-related headwinds that continue to persist throughout the product launch period, which impacted industry supply chains and limited engagement with physicians and providers. Additionally, these results do not reflect the substantial benefits anticipated from the recently approved BIVIGAM® expanded production scale, increasing our facility’s total annual peak production capacity from 400,000 liters to 600,000 liters, as well as the expected approval of the VanRx SA25 Workcell aseptic fill-finish machine (“VanRx”) in the second half of 2021. We are confident that our underlying business trends have demonstrated strength and resilience year-to-date and can continue improving in the second half of 2021 and beyond as operating efficiencies materialize and production ramp-up further progresses.
“ADMA has also seen a substantial strengthening of its supply chain in the first half of the year. The recent receipt of zero Form 483 observations as a part of the pre-approval inspection (“PAI”) for the VanRx machine paves the way for an anticipated approval over the coming months. When approved, it will cap a multi-year remediation and end-to-end supply chain initiative at the Boca Raton, FL manufacturing facility, and will propel ADMA into an elite group of U.S.-based drug manufacturers with comprehensive in-house control of a majority of its critical manufacturing functions.
“The ADMA BioCenters team, through its year-to-date accomplishments, has made significant strides towards ensuring uninterrupted raw material plasma supply. The enhanced yield anticipated from the recent implementation of Haemonetics’ Persona® technology, the extension of the Company’s primary third-party plasma supply contract to the end of 2022 and the continued expansion of the BioCenters plasma collection network establishes a solid foundation for ADMA to ensure continuity of product supply into an increasingly supply-constrained immune globulin market. With the current industry-wide pressures on plasma collection operations, ADMA’s strategic emphasis on building an internal collection network and solidifying third-party supplemental supply should yield significant returns in the periods ahead and largely insulate the Company from supply and pricing fluctuations.
“Over the past 4 years, ADMA has also been diligently building a vertically integrated commercial biologics manufacturing organization since acquiring its manufacturing facility and assets in June 2017 and is now successfully emerging from its multi-year investment, regulatory and remediation phase. The majority of substantive investments are now in the rearview, the wholly owned manufacturing plant is now fully remediated and collectively, positions the Company to meet or exceed all longer-term financial targets. These accomplishments could not have been realized without the dedication and focus of ADMA’s staff, leadership and advisors. We commend the entire team for their extraordinary efforts focused on improving healthcare for U.S. patients,” concluded Mr. Grossman.
Select Second Quarter 2021 Achievements & Recent Corporate Developments:
Continued Commercial Execution: Achieved second quarter 2021 total revenues of $17.8 million, compared to $7.8 million for the second quarter of 2020, reflecting a 129% increase.
Successful PAI Paves the Way for Second Half 2021 VanRx Approval. We anticipate the successfully completed PAI, during which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued no Form 483 observations, will facilitate a VanRx approval over the coming months. In addition to the significant operating efficiencies expected to result from the expected VanRx approval, the fill-finish capabilities will propel ADMA into an elite class of U.S. drug manufacturers with complete end-to-end control of critical manufacturing functions. As previously stated, we are actively evaluating new business opportunities with these fill-finish capabilities and intend to update the market as appropriate.
On Track BioCenters Network Expansion. ADMA currently has eight plasma collection facilities under its corporate umbrella at various stages of approval and development, including five facilities that are currently operational and collecting plasma. The Company remains on track to achieve its stated goal of operating 10 or more plasma collection centers by 2024. Over the remainder of 2021, ADMA anticipates receiving approval for one facility presently pending a Biologics License Application (“BLA”) and expects to file BLAs for two additional plasma collection centers.
Expanded Suite of IG Product Offerings with Introduction of Additional Vial Sizes. The availability of the additional NABI-HB® and BIVIGAM® vial sizes meaningfully enhance ADMA’s go-to-market offering for its immunoglobulin product portfolio and allows for more versatile utilization by providers and patients.
Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, were approximately $17.8 million, compared to approximately $7.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, representing an increase of approximately $10.0 million, or 129%. The revenue growth for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was favorably impacted by the continued commercial ramp-up of ADMA’s IVIG product portfolio.
Consolidated net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $18.9 million, or $(0.15) per basic and diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of approximately $20.2 million, or $(0.23) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The $1.3 million narrowing in net loss compared to the prior year period was primarily attributable to increased revenues and improved gross margins. The net loss incurred during the second quarter of 2021 includes a one-time, non-recurring charge related to a separation and transition agreement in the amount of approximately $0.8 million.
At June 30, 2021, ADMA had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $42.4 million and accounts receivable of approximately $23.5 million, compared to cash and cash equivalents of approximately $75.8 million and accounts receivable of approximately $6.5 million as of June 30, 2020. ADMA’s net working capital as of June 30, 2021 was approximately $153.2 million, compared to approximately $130.1 million as of June 30, 2020.
