(NASDAQ: BDSI), a rapidly growing commercial-stage specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to patients living with chronic pain, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ending December 31, 2018, as well as the following operational and performance highlights:

Key Business Highlights

 

 

BELBUCA prescription growth exceeded expectations during the fourth quarter 2018, with an increase of 126% year-over-year and a 27% increase over the prior quarter, resulting in the largest quarterly increase and an all-time quarterly high of more than 56,000 prescriptions.

 

 

BELBUCA fourth quarter 2018 net revenue grew by 28.3% over prior quarter to $15.9 million and to $46 million for the full year, an increase of 70.5% versus prior year.

 

 

25 million lives with preferred access to BELBUCA were added during the fourth quarter, bringing the 2018 year-end total to more than 100 million lives.

 

 

Added more than 1,100 new prescribers in the fourth quarter achieving a total of 5,358 unique prescribers during the period – both all-time highs for BELBUCA.

 

 

Completed expansion of the sales, medical, and market access teams during the fourth quarter to further improve access and accelerate growth for BELBUCA.

 

 

Further strengthened the executive leadership team with the appointment of Terry Coelho as Chief Financial Officer in January 2019.

“I am very pleased by the results achieved during the fourth quarter and for the entire year,” stated Herm Cukier, Chief Executive Officer of BDSI. “We succeeded in transforming the company into a rapidly growing commercial enterprise with sustained momentum as we enter 2019. The continued acceleration of BELBUCA scripts, along with increased preferred coverage and the expanded sales and medical teams, position us well to further deliver on our growth strategy in the year ahead.”


LOGO

 

The Company expects full-year 2019 BELBUCA net revenue to be in the range of $80-$85 million and total Company net revenue to be in the range of $85-$90 million. The long-term net sales potential for BELBUCA is now seen to be in the range of $250—$300 million.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total Net Revenue. Total net revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, was $18.0 million, an increase of 27.4% compared to $14.2 million in the third quarter of 2018, and an increase of 44.1% compared to $12.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

BELBUCA Net Revenue. BELBUCA net revenue in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, was $15.9 million, an increase of 28.3% compared to $12.4 million in the third quarter 2018, and an increase of 68.3% compared to $9.4 million in the fourth quarter 2017. The total net revenue growth was driven primarily by BELBUCA which comprised 88% of total net revenue in the quarter.

Total Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, were $18.5 million, compared to $14.2 million in the third quarter of 2018, and $21.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Total operating expenses in the quarter reflect the expansion of our commercial and medical teams.

Net Loss. Net loss for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, was $7.0 million, or ($0.10) per share, compared to a loss of $18.9 million, or ($0.29) per share in the third quarter of 2018.

Year-End 2018 Financial Results

Total Net Revenue. Total net revenue for the full-year 2018 was $55.6 million, a decrease of 10.2% compared to $62.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. Total net revenue for 2017 included $20 million in contract revenues recorded in January 2017 resulting from the termination of the licensing agreement with Endo and the return of BELBUCA rights to BDSI. Total net 2018 revenue growth was 32.5% excluding the aforementioned $20 million in contract revenues.

BELBUCA Net Revenue. BELBUCA net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2018, was $46.0 million, an increase of 70.5% compared to $27.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The long-term potential for BELBUCA net revenue is expected to be over $250 million.

Total Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2018, were $63.5 million, compared to $71.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The year-over-year reduction was primarily due to 2017 costs associated with joining the opioid consortium, along with remaining R&D expenses.

Net Loss. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2018, was $46.4 million, or ($0.73) per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2017. The full-year 2018 net loss included a one-time non-cash charge of $12.5 million for the beneficial conversion feature of the Series B Preferred Stock.
