Adamas Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADMS) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2015. The company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $14.9 million, or $0.81 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. In the same period last year, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $9.6 million, or $0.57 per share. Adamas ended the current quarter with $132.6 million in cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities compared to $158.7 million at December 31, 2014.

“We are advancing our ADS-5102 program, including the Phase 3 studies for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) associated with Parkinson’s disease and enrolling patients in the ongoing Phase 2 trial in MS Gait,” stated Gregory T. Went, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Adamas. “With the enrollment of the EASE LID study complete, we look forward to finishing enrollment in EASE LID 3 and announcing top-line results from EASE LID. It is exciting to be pioneering a therapeutic treatment for LID as there are currently no approved medicines for this debilitating movement disorder.”

Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter and Nine-month Results

For the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, Adamas reported total revenue of $0.8 million and $0.2 million, respectively. Revenues for both periods included reimbursement of expenses associated with Adamas’ collaboration with Forest Laboratories Holdings Limited (“Forest”) and government grants and contracts. Research and development expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 were $10.0 million, including $0.8 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $5.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, which included $0.6 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in research and development expenses was related to continued investment in the ADS-5102 clinical program. General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 were $5.8 million, including $1.8 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $4.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, which included $1.4 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in general and administrative expenses was due primarily to higher headcount-related costs associated with expansion of the company’s capabilities as a public and pre-commercial company.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $41.1 million, or $2.28 per share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the company recorded net income attributable to common stockholders of $53,000, or $0.00 per share, during which period Adamas recorded as revenue a $25.0 million development milestone from Forest. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, Adamas reported total revenues of $1.4 million and $25.5 million, respectively. Research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were $26.2 million, including $2.3 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $13.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, which included $1.7 million in stock-based compensation expense. General and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were $16.6 million, including $4.9 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $10.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, which included $3.2 million in stock-based compensation expense.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, Adamas’ $26.1 million net use of cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities was impacted by the company’s payment of $4.7 million in income taxes in the first quarter of 2015. This was offset by the issuance of shares under the company’s at-the-market (ATM) offering program in June and July, which added $9.7 million in net proceeds to the cash balance reported during this period.
