Management to Host Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:30 p.m. ET
RAMSEY, N.J. and BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 10, 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 September 30, 2021, its fiscal third quarter, and provided an overview of recent progress and accomplishments.
“Achieving a positive gross profit and 101% year-over-year revenue growth represents a key inflection point for the Company as we continue our ongoing commercial and production ramp up. These financial milestones and accomplishments would not have been possible 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,” said Adam Grossman, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADMA. “The investments we have made into our manufacturing facility and our ADMA BioCenters plasma collection operations are yielding positive results and we are encouraged by the contributions from each segment to our overall operations. Additionally, we strengthened our balance sheet with the recent closing of an underwritten public equity offering of $57.5 million in gross proceeds which, in combination with our active engagement with prospective debt lenders to raise additional non-dilutive capital has the potential to substantially fund our business to profitability no later than the first quarter of 2024.”
Mr. Grossman continued, “During the third quarter, our inventory and property and equipment balances continued to grow, which will support the significant revenue growth we anticipate over the coming quarters. We believe our organization, through its operational execution, has clearly demonstrated strength and resilience, and is well-positioned to meet or exceed all previously disclosed financial targets and unlock significant value for stockholders in the periods ahead. The ADMA BioCenters segment continues to excel and remains on track to have 10 or more plasma collection facilities FDA-licensed by year-end 2023. The rapid expansion of our plasma collection center network, in addition to the yield enhancements from the implementation of Haemonetics’ Persona® technology, will firm up internal plasma self-sufficiency, help to insulate ADMA from the challenges presently impacting the broader plasma collection industry and ensure continuity of product supply for ADMA’s commercial immune globulin (IG) portfolio to assist in meeting the increasing prescriber demands in the growing U.S. IG market.”
“The commercial, regulatory and operational milestones achieved during 2021 firmly establish ADMA as a vertically integrated, cGMP-compliant fractionator capable of successfully competing in the rapidly growing U.S. IG market. With the more substantive investments now behind the Company, the pathway to profitability is well-defined and rapidly approaching, and we continue to reiterate all previously communicated strategic and financial objectives. Looking forward, ADMA anticipates continued commercial execution and remains committed to unlocking the yet-to-be-realized fair value that this asset base now commands,” concluded Mr. Grossman.
Select Third Quarter 2021 Achievements & Recent Corporate Developments:
Continued Commercial Execution:
- Achieved record third quarter 2021 total revenues of $20.7 million, compared to $10.3 million for the third quarter of 2020, reflecting a 101% increase.
- Generated a positive gross profit for the first time in Company history, and successfully narrowed sequential net quarterly losses.
Strengthened Cash Position. On October 25, 2021, ADMA closed an underwritten public offering, raising approximately $53.9 million, net of all underwriting discounts and expenses associated with the offering. ADMA continues to actively engage prospective debt lenders to potentially raise additional, non-dilutive capital, which if successful, has the potential to fund the Company to profitability.
Completed Multi-Year Supply Chain Robustness and Remediation Processes. In addition to the significant operating and cost efficiencies expected from the VanRx SA25 Workcell aseptic filling machine which was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ADMA’s in-house fill-finish capabilities position the Company as the only U.S.-domiciled fractionator of plasma-derived products with complete end-to-end control of its critical manufacturing functions. The VanRx approval will also enable ADMA to explore potentially accretive contract manufacturing opportunities with third parties not currently contemplated in ADMA’s financial guidance. The Company will communicate contract manufacturing developments as appropriate.
Continued ADMA BioCenters Plasma Collection Network Expansion. ADMA currently has nine plasma collection facilities under its corporate umbrella at various stages of FDA approval and development, including five facilities that are currently operational and collecting plasma. The Company remains on track to have 10 or more plasma collection centers FDA-licensed by year-end 2023. The anticipated yield enhancement resulting from the recent Persona® implementation, in combination with the Company’s growing BioCenters network, has ADMA well-positioned to achieve source plasma self-sufficiency and contribute to quarter-over-quarter revenue and plasma collections growth throughout 2021 and beyond. These activities will help ensure continuity of commercial product supply to customers and patients in the growing U.S. IG market.
Strengthened Board of Directors. The appointment of Young T. Kwon, Ph.D. to its Board of Directors meaningfully strengthens ADMA’s ability to navigate the contours of the commercial IG landscape and effectively evaluate strategic business opportunities. Over the course of his career, Dr. Kwon has held a variety of C-suite leadership positions, in which he played pivotal roles involving multibillion-dollar mergers and acquisitions. Dr. Kwon recently served as Chief Financial and Business Officer of Momenta Pharmaceuticals, where he led the sale to Johnson & Johnson for approximately $6.5 billion in 2020.
Demonstrated Commitment to Stockholders. As previously disclosed, ADMA has engaged Morgan Stanley as an advisor to evaluate a variety of strategic and financing alternatives. The evaluation of these alternatives as well as the formal engagement with Morgan Stanley demonstrates ADMA’s management and Board of Directors’ unwavering commitment to optimizing value for its stockholders.
Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 were approximately $20.7 million, compared to approximately $10.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, representing an increase of approximately $10.4 million, or 101%. The revenue growth for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020, was favorably impacted by the continued commercial ramp-up of ADMA’s intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) product portfolio and sale of intermediate fractions. Gross profit during the third quarter of 2021 was approximately $0.4 million compared to a gross loss of approximately $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The improved gross profit year-over-year was primarily attributable to increased sales of ADMA’s higher margin hyperimmune globulin product portfolio, along with a portion of the sales generated from conformance batches.
Consolidated net loss was $17.7 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $16.9 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $0.8 million increase in net loss was primarily due to the increased operating loss for the quarter of $0.6 million, as the improved revenues and gross profit were more than offset by increases in plasma center operating expenses and selling, general administrative expenses, and to the increase in interest expense.
At September 30, 2021, ADMA had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $34.4 million and accounts receivable of approximately $20.4 million, compared to cash and cash equivalents of approximately $55.9 million and accounts receivable of approximately $13.2 million as of December 31, 2020. Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, on October 25, 2021, the Company closed an underwritten public offering whereby the Company received gross proceeds of $57.5 million, amounting to net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and expenses associated with the offering, of approximately $53.9 million.
