Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of ADMA and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, ADMA Plasma Biologics, Inc. and ADMA BioCenters. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements for the interim periods included herein are unaudited; however, they contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) which in the opinion of management are necessary to present fairly the condensed consolidated financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2016 and its results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.  The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim periods or for the full year.  These interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2015 on Form 10-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, (the “SEC”) on March 23, 2016.

  

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, (“GAAP”), in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim reporting.  Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in complete annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted.

Inventories

Plasma inventories (both plasma intended for resale and plasma intended for internal use in the Company's research and development and future anticipated commercialization activities) are carried at the lower of cost or market value determined on the first-in, first-out method.  Research and development plasma used in clinical trials was processed to a finished product and subsequently expensed to research and development.  Inventory at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 consists of high titer plasma and normal source plasma.

Debt

In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2015-03, Interest—Imputation of Interest, which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability instead of being presented as an asset.  Debt disclosures will include the face amount of the debt liability and the effective interest rate. The update requires retrospective application and represents a change in accounting principle. The update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015.  The Company adopted ASU 2015-03 in its second quarter 2015 condensed consolidated financial statements and recast the prior period balances to conform to the current period presentation.

Revenue recognition

Depending on the agreement with the customer, revenues from the sale of human plasma collected at the Company’s FDA licensed plasma collection centers are recognized at the time of transfer of title and risk of loss to the customer, which occurs at the time of shipment.  Revenue is recognized at the time of delivery if the Company retains the risk of loss during shipment.  The Company’s revenues are substantially attributable to one customer.  Revenue from license fees and research and development services rendered are recognized as revenue when the performance obligations under the terms of the license agreement have been completed.

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are comprised of product revenues from the sale of normal source human plasma collected from the Company’s plasma collection centers segment and license and other revenues are primarily attributable to the out-licensing of RI-002 to Biotest AG to market and sell in Europe and selected countries in North Africa and the Middle East.  Biotest AG and Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation, or Biotest, a subsidiary of Biotest AG, has provided the Company with certain financial payment and services in accordance with the related license agreement and is obligated to pay the Company certain amounts in the future if certain milestones are achieved.  During the third quarter 2015, the Company recorded deferred revenue of $1.5 million for a milestone payment provided to the Company upon its filing of the BLA for RI-002 with the FDA, in accordance with the terms of the license agreement. Deferred revenue of $1.7 million was recorded in 2013 as a result of certain research and development services provided in accordance with the same license agreement. Deferred revenue is recognized over the term of the license.  Deferred revenue is amortized into income for a period of approximately 20 years, the term of the license agreement.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Significant estimates include valuation of inventory, assumptions used in the fair value determination of stock-based compensation, warrants and the allowance for the valuation of future tax benefits.

Loss per common share

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

 

Diluted net loss per share is calculated by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders as adjusted for the effect of dilutive securities, if any, by the weighted average number of common stock and dilutive common stock outstanding during the period.  Potential common stock includes the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants (using the treasury stock method).  Potential common stock in the diluted net loss per share computation is excluded to the extent that it would be anti-dilutive.  No potentially dilutive securities are included in the computation of any diluted per share amounts as the Company reported a net loss for all periods presented.  The aggregate number of potentially dilutive securities upon the exercise of outstanding warrants and stock options was 1.8 million and 1.5 million as of March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Stock-based compensation

The Company follows recognized accounting guidance which requires all stock-based payments, including grants of stock options, to be recognized in the statement of operations as compensation expense, based on their fair values on the grant date. The estimated fair value of stock options granted under the Company’s 2007 Employee Stock Option Plan (the “2007 Plan”) and the 2014 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2014 Plan”) is recognized as compensation expense over the option-vesting period.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company granted stock options to purchase 85,984 and 230,000 shares of common stock, respectively, to its directors and employees.
