Insys Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2013 Results

Record Quarterly Revenue of $40.2 Million Driven by Continued Growth in Subsys Net Revenue

Board of Directors Approves Three-for-Two Stock Split of Its Common Stock to Be Effected Through a Stock Dividend

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY), a specialty pharmaceutical company with a focus on supportive care products for cancer patients, today announced its financial results for the three- and twelve- month periods ended December 31, 2013. Fourth quarter 2013 highlights include:

  • Total net revenue increased to $40.2 million versus $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012;
  • Revenues from Subsys® (fentanyl sublingual spray) were $39.2 million, up 719% over fourth quarter of 2012 levels and up 38% as compared with $28.4 million in the third quarter of 2013;
  • Net income of $24.1 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $7.1 million, or ($0.76) per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. The 2013 period includes the impact of a $9.7 million income tax benefit due to the reversal of deferred tax asset valuation allowance;
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income, which excludes the $9.7 million income tax benefit, was $17.1 million, or $0.71 per diluted share; and,
  • Advanced a robust pipeline focused on innovative supportive care and therapy products; Insys expects to file at least one New Drug Application (NDA) and at least four Investigational New Drug (IND) applications in 2014. 

"Our solid results for the quarter and year were driven by strong growth in Subsys prescriptions to alleviate breakthrough pain for cancer patients," said Michael L. Babich, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In December 2013, Subsys was the most prescribed branded transmucosal immediate-release fentanyl (TIRF) product. We believe that its simple, one-step administration system and rapid onset will enable further growth of our market share for and net revenue from this unique product." 

Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $40.2 million, an increase of $35.0 million as compared to $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. On a sequential basis, fourth quarter 2013 net revenue increased by $11.0 million from third quarter 2013 net revenue of $29.2 million. A summary of total revenue is outlined below (in millions):

    Three Months Ended
December 31,
  Increase
        2013       2012   (Decrease)
Product sales, net                  
  Subsys   $ 39.2   $ 4.8   $ 34.4
  Dronabinol SG Capsule     1.0     0.4     0.6
Total net revenue   $ 40. 2   $ 5.2   $ 35.0
                   

Gross margin was 87% for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with 60% for the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in gross margin was due primarily to a shift in sales mix toward Subsys, which has higher margins than Dronabinol SG Capsule.

Sales and marketing expense was $10.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase was a result of higher sales compensation expenses associated with the increase in sales of Subsys and increased marketing expenses during the fourth quarter of 2013.

Research and development expense increased to $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of new product development programs begun in the second quarter of 2013.

General and administrative expense increased to $7.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $2.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily resulting from costs incurred in connection with increased administrative infrastructure to support the growth of Subsys sales combined with corporate costs associated with becoming a public company.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $24.1 million, or $1.11 per basic share and $1.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $7.1 million, or ($0.76) per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $17.1 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net loss of $5.5 million, or ($0.59) per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. The reconciliation of net income (loss) to Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) is included at the end of this press release.

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the method of revenue recognition on sales of Subsys was modified to record revenue at the time of product shipment to the wholesale pharmaceutical distributor. This change resulted in incremental Subsys revenue and gross profit of $1.5 million and $0.9 million, respectively. Also during the fourth quarter of 2014, an income tax benefit of $9.7 million was recorded as a result of the reversal of deferred tax asset valuation allowances.

2013 Financial Results
Total net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $99.3 million, an increase of $83.8 million as compared to $15.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. A summary of total revenue is outlined below (in millions):

    Twelve Months Ended
December 31,
  Increase  
    2013   2012   (Decrease)  
Product sales, net                    
  Subsys   $ 95.8   $ 8.6   $ 87.2  
  Dronabinol SG Capsule     3.5     6.9     (3.4 )
Total net revenue   $ 99. 3   $ 15.5   $ 83.8  
                     

Gross margin for 2013 was 87%, compared with 51% for 2012. The increase in gross margin was due primarily to a shift in sales mix toward Subsys, which has higher margins than Dronabinol SG Capsule.

Sales and marketing expense was $29.2 million during 2013, compared to $11.4 million for 2012. The increase was a result of higher sales compensation expenses associated with the increase in sales of Subsys.

Research and development expense increased to $8.5 million for 2013, compared to $6.3 million for 2012, primarily as a result of an increased in research and development staff in 2013 to support development of the Company's pipeline, including its proprietary Dronabinol Oral Solution candidate and six preclinical sublingual spray candidates.

General and administrative expense increased to $16.4 million for 2013, compared to $8.2 million for the prior year, primarily resulting from costs incurred in connection with increased administrative infrastructure to support the growth of Subsys sales combined with increased costs associated with becoming a public company; the Company completed its initial public offering in May 2013.

Net income for 2013 was $40.4 million, or $2.34 per basic share and $2.11 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $24.4 million, or ($2.62) per basic and diluted share, for 2012. Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $38.3 million, or $2.00 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net loss of $18.8 million, or ($2.02) per diluted share, in the prior year. The reconciliation of net income (loss) to Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) is included at the end of this press release.

Liquidity
The Company had $45.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, $15.3 million in working capital (excluding cash and cash equivalents), no debt, and $79.5 million in stockholders' equity as of December 31, 2013.

These forward-looking statements are based on management's expectations and assumptions as of the date of this press release, and actual results may differ materially from those in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Insys is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Since Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share are not GAAP financial measures, they should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated statements of operations and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Insys's definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted net income (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 income (loss) to GAAP net income (loss), please see the attachments to this earnings release.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:
Net income (loss), plus:

  • Interest income (expense), net
  • Provision for income taxes
  • Depreciation and amortization
  • Non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation expense

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 income, as defined by the Company, is calculated as follows:
Net income (loss), plus:

  • The recorded provision for income taxes
  • Non-cash expenses, such as stock compensation expense, non-cash interest, and non-cash other expense (i.e., changes in estimated fair value of a contingent payment obligation)
  • Less an estimated cash tax provision, net of the benefit from utilizing NOL carry-forwards.

Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is equal to Adjusted net income (loss) divided by the diluted share count for the applicable period.

The Company believes that Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted shares 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 income (loss) and Adjusted net income (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 income (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 income (loss) and Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share and encourages investors to do likewise.
