Innocoll AG Announces Third Quarter 2014 Financial and Operating Results

ATHLONE, Ireland, Nov. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innocoll AG (Nasdaq:INNL), a global, commercial-stage, specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and manufactures a range of pharmaceutical products and medical devices using its proprietary collagen-based technologies, today announced financial and operating results for the three months and nine months ending September 30, 2014.

"This is our first quarterly report as a public company," said Michael Myers, Ph.D., Chairperson of the Management Board and Chief Executive Officer of Innocoll. "The successful completion of our IPO in July has provided us with funds that have enabled us to advance our clinical development programs for our key pipeline products, XaraColl® for the treatment of post-operative pain, Cogenzia® for the adjuvant treatment of diabetic foot infections, and CollaGUARD®, our collagen membrane barrier for the prevention of post-surgical adhesions. We have significant momentum now and look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of our clinical development programs over the coming quarters."

Summary of Year-to-Date 2014 Highlights

Financial Highlights

  • Innocoll received net proceeds of approximately $52.7 million, net of underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses, from the issuance and sale of approximately 6.7 million American Depository Shares (ADSs) in its initial public offering, including shares issued upon the partial exercise of the underwriters' over-allotment option.
  • On July 25, 2014, Innocoll's ADSs began trading on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol "INNL".
  • Year to date product sales revenue of €3.7 million was up by 38% compared to the corresponding period last year.
  • As of September 30, 2014 cash and cash equivalents were €47.3 million ($60.0 million).

Clinical Highlights

  • In July, we initiated a pivotal study comparing the pharmacokinetics and safety of XaraColl our implantable bioresorbable collagen sponge at doses of 200mg and 300mg to a standard bupivacaine solution. Once the data from this study becomes available, which is currently anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2015, we plan to initiate our Phase 3 efficacy program in post-operative pain in the United States.
  • On October 27th, we submitted a document to the FDA for Cogenzia for our planned clinical trials in patients with moderate to severe diabetic foot ulcer infections requesting approval for certain improvements to the Phase 3 clinical protocols and for reconfirmation of all of the key understandings that were agreed upon with the FDA in the Special Protocol Assessment (SPA). The agency has informed Innocoll that written feedback to this document will be sent within 30 days of its submission, following which the Phase 3 program for Cogenzia is expected to be initiated.
  • We developed a clinical protocol and obtained approval to run a CollaGUARD pilot study in patients undergoing intrauterine adhesiolysis via operative hysteroscopy. This study, which will be conducted in the Netherlands and will commence recruiting patients this month, is being run to generate data that will be used to finalize our pivotal clinical protocol to obtain PMA approval in the U.S. The data will also be used to support commercialization of CollaGUARD in countries where the product is already approved. Innocoll will plan on holding a Pre-IDE meeting with FDA once the pilot study results are available.

Regulatory and Commercial Highlights

  • During the quarter, Cogenzia received marketing approval in Canada, Russia, Argentina and Mexico. Cogenzia is now approved in six countries and has also been filed for approval in India and Australia.
  • CollaGUARD was approved in Argentina bringing the total number of country approvals to 46 countries in Europe, Asia and emerging markets. The first shipment of product was made to our partner Takeda in preparation for their planned launch of CollaGUARD in Russia. Takeda also filed for approval for CollaGUARD in Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan this year.
  • The RegenePro dental product line was launched in the U.S. by Biomet 3i LLC during the quarter.

Organizational Highlights

  • Earlier this year, Innocoll strengthened its supervisory board with the appointment of Jonathan Symonds CBE as Chairman, former CFO of Novartis and AstraZeneca, David Brennan, former CEO of AstraZeneca, Shumeet Banerji, former senior executive at Booz Allen Hamilton and member of the board of directors of Hewlett-Packard, and the pending appointment, subject to shareholder approval, of Joseph Wiley, of Sofinnova Ventures.

Three Month 2014 Financial Results

Net Profit/(Loss) Available to Ordinary Shareholders: Innocoll reported a net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of €2.0 million, or €1.57 per share ($0.15 per ADS), for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to a profit of €13.0 million, or €336.13 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP diluted profit excluding stock-based compensation and certain non-cash finance or other income was €0.3 million or €0.20 per share ($0.02 per ADS), for the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to a loss of €0.8 million, or €1.04 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Weighted average shares outstanding increased from 0.04 million during the three months ended September 30, 2013 to 1.25 million during the three months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, primarily as a result of the conversion of preference shares into ordinary shares and pre-IPO and IPO equity issuances in 2014.

Revenues: Revenues were €1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 an increase of 82%. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales by Jazz Pharmaceuticals of CollatampG, our gentamicin implant for the treatment and prevention of post-surgical infection, the first shipment of our adhesion barrier CollaGUARD to our partner Takeda in connection with the product's launch in Russia, and Biomet 3i's launch of RegenePro, our product to treat dental wounds in the US.

General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses: G&A expenses were €2.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. G&A expenses in the three months ended September 30, 2014 included €1.2 million in non-cash charges for stock-based compensation compared to €0.0 of such charges in the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Excluding such charges for stock-based compensation, G&A expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were €1.4 million as compared to €1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. We expect increases in G&A going forward as we build out our infrastructure to support our clinical programs and commercialization.

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses were €0.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The increase was primarily due to the commencement of our pharmacokinetics and safety study of XaraColl. Going forward, we expect R&D expenses to increase significantly as we advance our clinical trial programs.

Operating Losses: Operating losses in the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 were €3.6 million and €1.5 million, respectively. Excluding stock-based compensation, adjusted operating losses in the three months ended September 30, 2014 were €2.4 million. The difference between the €2.4 million adjusted operating losses and the €0.3 million non-GAAP diluted profit set out above was primarily due to foreign exchange gains of €2.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2014.

Finance and Other Income: Finance and other income was €5.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €14.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Finance and other income or expense items were non-cash items arising out of the re-domicile of our parent company to Germany during the third quarter of 2013, and changes in the value of liabilities associated with options issued to pre-IPO investors outstanding during the third quarter of 2014, as well as foreign exchange gains in each quarter.

Although Innocoll options issued to investors are settled in stock and are included in our authorized capital, under IFRS accounting rules, they will continue to be valued on a quarterly basis, which is likely to result in significant non-cash finance expense or income going forward.

Proceeds from Investment, Cash Position: In the second and third quarters of 2014 the company received total net proceeds from the issuance of shares of €52.1 million ($69.9 million), consisting of €12.4 million ($17.2 million) net proceeds of pre-IPO equity issuance and €39.7 million ($52.7 million) net proceeds from the IPO.

As of September 30, 2014, cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totalled €47.3 million ($60.0 million), which is expected to be sufficient to fund our clinical programs and operational expenses through the first half of 2016.

Nine Month 2014 Financial Results

Net Profit/(Loss) Available to Ordinary Shareholders: For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was €16.4 million or €33.36 per share ($3.19 per ADS), compared to a profit of €6.7 million, or €142.70 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP diluted loss excluding stock-based compensation and certain non-cash finance and other income was €7.2 million or €14.70 per share ($1.41 per ADS), for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared to a loss of €4.4 million, or €6.00 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Weighted average shares outstanding increased from 0.05 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, to 0.49 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily as a result of the conversion of preference shares into ordinary shares and pre-IPO and IPO equity issuance in 2014.

Revenues: Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were 38% higher at €3.7 million, compared to €2.7 million for nine months ended September 30, 2013. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales of CollatampG, CollaGUARD and RegenePro as described above.

General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses: G&A expenses were €7.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. G&A expenses in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 included €2.8 million in non-cash charges for stock-based compensation, compared to €0.0 of such charges in the corresponding period in 2013.

Excluding such charges for stock-based compensation, G&A expenses were €4.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to €2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase in G&A was primarily due to accounting, legal and consulting professional fees, insurance costs and investor relations costs related to becoming a public company.

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses were €2.0 million for the nine months ended September 2014 as compared to €1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase was primarily due to the commencement of our pharmacokinetics and safety study of XaraColl.

Operating Losses: Operating losses in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 were €9.7 million and €4.4 million respectively. Excluding stock-based compensation, operating losses in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were €6.9 million.

Finance and Other Income/(Expense): Finance and other income was an expense of €6.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to income of €11.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Finance and other income or expense items in each period were non-cash items arising out of the re-domicile of our parent company to Germany during the third quarter of 2013, and changes in the value of liabilities associated with options issued to pre-IPO investors outstanding during the second and third quarter of 2014, as well as foreign exchange gains in each period.
