Conference Call Scheduled for Today at 4:30 p.m. ET
RAMSEY, N.J. and BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 10, 2022 (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 announced its second quarter 2022 financial results and provided a business update.
“The second quarter of 2022 was another banner period of execution for ADMA Biologics, with total revenue growth of 90% year-over-year, significantly improved gross margins quarter-over-quarter, and meaningfully narrowed net losses compared to prior periods. We believe this significant revenue growth coupled with disciplined expense management establish a strong foundation for the Company to accelerate towards profitability,” said Adam Grossman, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADMA.
“We are particularly pleased with the utilization and growth of our higher margin immune globulin product, ASCENIV™. Drawing from the robust underlying product demand trends, we expect that the product and margin mix will continue to favorably evolve over the coming periods. In this context, we anticipate the Company’s pathway to profitability will become increasingly visible as the year progresses and our anticipated margin expansion continues to unfold. We believe we are well-positioned to deliver 2022 total revenues exceeding $130 million, driven by both Intravenous Immunoglobulin (“IVIG”) end-market growth as well as anticipated share gains for our product portfolio. Additionally, our strategic alternatives process remains a top corporate priority and is ongoing. We will update the market as developments materialize.”
“The investments made in the Boca Raton production facility, as well as our end-to-end supply chain, have enabled ADMA to successfully navigate historically challenging macroeconomic conditions,” said Brian Lenz, ADMA’s Chief Financial Officer, and General Manager, ADMA BioCenters. “We are encouraged by the continued operational efficiencies being unlocked and look forward to expanding on these trends as we accelerate towards profitability. The Company remains well-capitalized, holding approximately $52 million in cash and cash equivalents at the end of the second quarter, while having access to an additional $25 million in non-dilutive funds from the Hayfin credit facility.”
Second Quarter 2022 and Recent Achievements:
Significant Revenue Growth: Achieved second quarter 2022 total revenues of $33.9 million, as compared to $17.8 million during the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $16.1 million, or approximately 90%. Due to a favorable product mix, as the Company continues to expand its customer base for both BIVIGAM® and ASCENIV, ADMA realized a gross margin of approximately 23% during the second quarter of 2022, resulting from sales of higher margin products and continued supply chain operating efficiencies.
Durable Mix Shift Toward Higher Margin Products: ADMA is particularly encouraged with the continued physician adoption and utilization of its proprietary IVIG product, ASCENIV. We believe that leading product demand indicators continue to support durable and sustained upside for this product, with possible upside to peak potential.
Advancing Toward Profitability: The Company maintains and reiterates its previously provided profitability timeline, which is expected no later than the first quarter of 2024, while taking into account current macroeconomic uncertainties. However, should current demand trends and margin dynamics sustain, accelerated profitability timelines may be achievable.
- On-Track BioCenters Expansion: At present, the Company’s BioCenters segment has ten plasma collection centers under its corporate umbrella: six centers are United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”)-licensed, two additional centers are operational and collecting plasma, and two centers are in various stages of construction. The Company remains on track to have ten BioCenter locations FDA-licensed by year-end 2023 and, in the same period, forecasts raw material plasma supply self-sufficiency. ADMA anticipates its strong plasma supply position will support its upwardly revised production and revenue forecasts.
Expanded Patent Estate: In May 2022, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Pat. No. 11,339,206 (the “‘206 Patent”). The ‘206 Patent relates to methods of treating respiratory infections and expands ADMA’s estate of patents encompassing its proprietary immunotherapeutic compositions. In particular, the ‘206 Patent encompasses use of standardized, hyperimmune globulin for treating respiratory infections including those caused by respiratory syncytial virus (“RSV”), coronavirus, influenza virus, parainfluenza virus, and metapneumovirus.
Ongoing Strategic Review: ADMA continues to evaluate a variety of strategic alternatives through its ongoing engagement with Morgan Stanley. The Company will communicate material developments as required by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The exploration of strategic opportunities remains a top corporate priority for ADMA.
2022 & Long-Term Financial Guidance:
2022 Financial Guidance: Enabled by the strong start to the year, ADMA anticipates total 2022 revenues will exceed $130 million. ADMA reiterates expectations for continued gross profit expansion and narrowing net losses as 2022 progresses.
2024-2025 Financial Guidance: The Company continues to anticipate generating approximately $250 million or more in topline revenue in 2024, and approximately $300 million or more thereafter. At these revenue levels, and based upon current assumptions, ADMA continues to forecast achieving corporate gross margins in the range of 40-50% and net income margins in the range of 20-30%. These assumptions translate to potential annual gross profit and net income in the range of $100-150 million and $50-100 million, respectively, during the 2024-2025 time period and beyond.
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results:
Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 were $33.9 million, as compared to $17.8 million during the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $16.1 million, or approximately 90%. The revenue growth for the second quarter of 2022, compared to the second quarter of 2021, was favorably impacted by the continued commercial ramp-up of the Company’s IVIG product portfolio and expanding the customer base for BIVIGAM and ASCENIV.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was $7.8 million, compared to a gross loss of $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2021. Gross profit growth during the second quarter was driven by a favorable contribution from higher margin products, notably ASCENIV.
Consolidated net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $13.8 million, or $(0.07) per basic and diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of $18.9 million, or $(0.15) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Net loss decreased by approximately $5.1 million, primarily attributed to higher gross margins of $8.8 million offset by a $1.3 million increase in interest expense as a result of additional debt principal as well as rising interest rates. Additional offsets during the quarter included increased plasma center operating expenses of $1.1 million attributed to having eight plasma centers in operation compared to four operating centers during the period last year, as well as increased general and administrative expenses of $1.5 million resulting in increased headcount, commercialization, and marketing expenditures.
As of June 30, 2022, ADMA had working capital of $194.7 million, primarily consisting of $146.1 million of inventory, cash, and cash equivalents of $52.4 million and net accounts receivable of $18.9 million, partially offset by an aggregate of $27.3 million of accounts payable and accrued expenses, as compared to working capital of $153.2 million as of June 30, 2021.

ASCENIV (immune globulin intravenous, human – slra 10% liquid) is a plasma-derived, polyclonal, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG). ASCENIV was approved by the FDA in April 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 respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) plasma obtained 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.
