NESS ZIONA, Israel, Nov. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kamada Ltd. (Nasdaq:KMDA) (TASE:KMDA.TA), a plasma-derived protein therapeutics company focused on orphan indications, announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

“Kamada made substantial progress in the third quarter of 2016 with strong financial performance and the achievement of several important milestones. The extension of our supply agreement for GLASSIA® with Shire through 2020 underscores the growing market share and increasing demand for GLASSIA in the U.S., and the strong strategic relationship between Kamada and Shire. This minimum commitment by Shire further strengthens our confidence in achieving our guidance of $100 million in total revenues in 2017 and represents further growth in the following years,” said Amir London, Chief Executive Officer.

“Moreover, we also were very pleased to report positive top-line results, meeting the primary endpoint of our U.S. Phase 2 clinical trial for our inhaled AAT therapy. We will submit this data to support our current MAA application with the EMA and to decide upon a regulatory strategy for inhaled AAT in the U.S. in our discussions with the FDA,” added Mr. London.

Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2016:

  • Total revenues were $19.4 million for the third quarter of 2016, a 21% increase from the $16.1 million in the third quarter of 2015.
  • Revenues from the Proprietary Products segment were $15.0 million, a 57% increase from the $9.6 million in the same period of 2015.
  • Gross profit was $6.3 million, a 69% increase from the $3.7 million in the same period of 2015.
  • Gross margin increased to 32.4% from 23.1% in the same period of 2015.
  • Net loss was $1.0 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.13 per share, in the same period of 2015.
  • Adjusted net loss was $0.7 million compared to an adjusted net loss of $4.1 million in the same period of 2015.

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016:

  • Total revenues were $53.2 million, a 20% increase from the $44.2 million in the same period of 2015.
  • Revenues from the Proprietary Product Segment were $38.3 million, a 50% increase from the $25.4 million in the same period of 2015.
  • Gross profit was $16.7 million, a 116% increase from the $7.8 million in the same period of 2015.
  • Gross margin increased to 31.3% from 17.5% in the same period of 2015.

  • Adjusted net loss was $3.9 million compared to adjusted net loss of $10.7 million in the same period of 2015.

Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Extended strategic partnership with Shire plc for supply and distribution of GLASSIA®. Minimum revenue for GLASSIA for the years 2017 to 2020 will reach approximately $237 million and may be expanded to $288 million during that period. This extension represents the fourth time the companies have extended the contract for manufacturing supply of GLASSIA since the start of the strategic relationship in 2010.
  • Announced positive top-line results, meeting the primary endpoint, of the Company’s U.S. Phase 2 clinical trial of its proprietary inhaled Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) therapy for the treatment of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD). AATD is an orphan disease currently treated by intravenous AAT augmentation therapy. Kamada intends to utilize the excellent results from this successful Phase 2 study to design a pivotal U.S. study and to support our responses to the EMA’s 120-day comments in regards to Kamada’s marketing authorization application (MAA) for Inhaled AAT, which was submitted in March 2016. The Company also intends to continue its discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with this additional Phase 2 data and the data from our EU Phase 2/3 study in order to obtain guidance on the regulatory pathway for inhaled AAT in the U.S.
  • The FDA accepted for review a Biologics License Application (BLA) for Kamada’s human plasma-derived anti-rabies immunoglobulin (IgG) therapy from Kamada and Kedrion Biopharma. Rabies is a life-threatening condition that impacts approximately 40,000 people in the U.S. each year. Subject to receiving FDA marketing approval, the post-exposure prophylaxis treatment will have the potential to provide stability and secure availability in a market that has experienced inconsistent supply and supply shortages in recent years. The FDA has assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) goal date of August 29, 2017, for completion of the review of the BLA. Subject to receiving FDA marketing approval, Kamada will hold the license for this product and Kedrion will have exclusive rights to commercialize it in the U.S.
  • Announced plans for a Phase 2/3 clinical trial of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin IV (G1-AAT IV) for the treatment of Graft-Versus-Host Disease in collaboration with Shire plc. This clinical trial will be a two-part, multi-center, prospective study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of G1-AAT IV as an add-on biopharmacotherapy to conventional steroid treatment in up to 168 patients with acute GvHD with lower gastrointestinal involvement. G1-AAT IV previously received orphan drug designation from the FDA and European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of GvHD, and an Investigational New Drug Application was submitted to the FDA earlier this year. Study results are expected to be available in 2020.

“We are very pleased with our strong financial performance in the third quarter of 2016,” said Gil Efron, Deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer. “The 21 percent growth in total revenues in the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015 was driven by a robust increase of 57 percent in sales from our Proprietary Products Segment. This revenue growth and higher gross profit resulted in positive Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter 2016 and a net loss of approximately $1.0 million.”

About Kamada
Kamada Ltd. is focused on plasma-derived protein therapeutics for orphan indications, and has a commercial product portfolio and a robust late-stage product pipeline. The Company uses its proprietary platform technology and know-how for the extraction and purification of proteins from human plasma to produce Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) in a highly-purified, liquid form, as well as other plasma-derived Immune globulins. AAT is a protein derived from human plasma with known and newly-discovered therapeutic roles given its immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, tissue-protective and antimicrobial properties. The Company’s flagship product is GLASSIA®, the first and only liquid, ready-to-use, intravenous plasma-derived AAT product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Kamada markets GLASSIA® in the U.S. through a strategic partnership with Baxalta (now part of Shire plc) and in other counties through local distributors. In addition to GLASSIA®, Kamada has a product line of seven other pharmaceutical products administered by injection or infusion, that are marketed through distributors in more than 15 countries, including Israel, Russia, Brazil, India and other countries in Latin America and Asia. Kamada has five late-stage plasma-derived protein products in development, including an inhaled formulation of AAT for the treatment of AAT deficiency for which an MAA was submitted to the EMA after completing pivotal Phase 2/3 clinical trials in Europe. Kamada has also completed its Phase 2 clinical trials in the U.S. for the treatment of AAT deficiency with inhaled AAT. In addition, Kamada's intravenous AAT is in development for other indications such as type-1 diabetes, GvHD and prevention of lung transplant rejection. Kamada also leverages its expertise and presence in the plasma-derived protein therapeutics market by distributing more than 10 complementary products in Israel that are manufactured by third parties.
