Innocoll Holdings plc Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial and Operating Results and Provides Corporate Update

ATHLONE, Ireland, Aug. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innocoll Holdings plc (Nasdaq:INNL), a global, specialty pharmaceutical company with late stage development programs targeting areas of significant unmet medical needs, today announced financial and operating results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016. Using our proprietary collagen-based technology platform, we manufacture and supply a range of biodegradable and fully bioresorbable pharmaceutical products and medical devices that are precision-engineered for targeted use.

“I am pleased that in the second quarter, we continued to make solid progress in advancing our clinical programs, delivering on important key milestones,” said Tony Zook, Chief Executive Officer of Innocoll. “XARACOLL achieved positive pivotal results in Phase 3 trials, and we are now preparing to submit an NDA to the FDA for the treatment of post-operative pain. Our second Phase 3 drug candidate COGENZIA, for the treatment of diabetic foot infections, completed enrollment of its two clinical trials in late June, with top-line data expected in the early fourth quarter of this year. We also advanced COLLAGUARD, for the prevention of surgical adhesions, into pre-IDE studies as planned. The expansion of our manufacturing facility in Saal, Germany, continues to make headway. The Government of Upper Bavaria has approved our new laboratories for use, and we expect to complete the construction phase of the Saal facility’s commercial manufacturing area this quarter. We have started to ramp up our commercial infrastructure as well by hiring additional talent with deep experience in launching successful pharmaceutical products. Our vision is to provide physicians and patients with innovative new therapeutic options developed from our technology platform, thus serving unmet medical needs while simultaneously increasing shareholder value, and we will continue to work hard on those commitments.”

Second Quarter 2016 and Recent Highlights

  • Announced positive pivotal data in two Phase 3 clinical trials for XARACOLL, which demonstrated highly statistically significant results as a long-acting anesthetic in the reduction of surgical pain following hernia repair. Full analysis of the data will be submitted for medical publication and to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through an NDA for the treatment of post-operative pain, by early 4Q 2016.
  • Completed enrollment in two Phase 3 clinical studies studying COGENZIA in diabetic foot infections. Top line data from these studies are anticipated in the early fourth quarter of this year, followed closely by an NDA submission if the data is positive. COGENZIA’s QIDP designation provides potential eligibility for Fast Track priority review.
  • Started non-clinical studies for COLLAGUARD, with data expected later this quarter. Assuming positive results and availability of resources, filing of an IDE package is expected to follow.
  • Received approval from Government of Upper Bavaria of new quality-controlled laboratories at Saal facility. On track to complete the construction phase of the commercial manufacturing area in the third quarter of 2016, with qualification / validation activities targeted for the fourth quarter of this year.  Activities initiated to prepare for pre-approval inspection by the FDA after submission of the XARACOLL NDA.
  • Continued to ramp up on commercial capabilities, including exceptional hires in Suzanne Delaney (formerly of GlaxoSmithKline) as Vice President of Sales and Ken Graham (formerly of Bayer) as Vice President of Managed Markets. Each brings nearly 25 years of pharmaceuticals sales and marketing experience from previous leadership roles, with successful launches of multiple widely recognized pharmaceutical brand drugs.
  • Strengthened our financial position through the additions of cash totaling approximately $49 million to the balance sheet in June. The drawdown of the second tranche from the European Investment Bank (EIB) added $11.2 million, following positive Phase 3 data for XARACOLL. In addition, Innocoll’s completion of a public offering of ordinary shares raised gross proceeds of approximately $40 million. At June 30, 2016, cash and equivalents totaled $53.8 million, compared to $22.7 million as of March 31, 2016. The company plans to manage its resources to extend the cash runway for at least a year and until after the anticipated XARACOLL NDA approval, the company’s priority, expected in the third quarter of 2017.

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Net Loss Attributable to Ordinary Shareholders: Innocoll Holdings plc reported a net loss attributable to its ordinary shares of $12.8 million, or $0.53 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the second quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of $27.6 million, or $1.24 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the second quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP diluted net loss excluding non-cash expense with respect to share-based compensation and fair value gains and losses on investor options was $15.1 million or $0.62 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the second quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of $10.8 million or $0.49 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the second quarter of 2015.

The weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding increased from 22.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 to 24.4 million in the second quarter of 2016, primarily as a result of Innocoll Holdings plc’s follow-on public offering in the second quarter of 2016. The total number of shares outstanding as at June 30, 2016 was 29.7 million.

Revenues: Revenues were $1.3 million for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales to EUSA Pharma of CollatampG, our gentamicin implant for the treatment and prevention of post-surgical infection, following the stabilization of the EUSA Pharma business following the transfer from Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses were $10.6 million for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $4.9 million for the second quarter of 2015. R&D expenses in the second quarter of 2016 included $9.6 million in external clinical research expenses, which was primarily driven by our Phase 3 COGENZIA efficacy trials and the conclusion of our Phase 3 XARACOLL efficacy trials. R&D expenses are expected to decrease significantly in the future as the company concludes the COGENZIA clinical studies and files the XARACOLL NDA.        

General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses: G&A expenses were $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2015. Excluding stock-based compensation charges, G&A expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $3.9 million as compared to $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2015. The increase in G&A, excluding stock-based compensation, was primarily due to our continued infrastructure build out to support clinical programs and the initiation of our pre-commercialization investment.

Other Operating Income/(Expense): Other income was $4.3 million for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to other expense of $17.8 million for the second quarter of 2015. Other income in the second quarter consisted primarily of non-cash items due to the fair value income of investor options outstanding and foreign exchange gains, partially offset by interest on the company’s existing loan with the European Investment Bank (EIB). Other expense in the second quarter of 2015 consisted primarily of $15.9 million fair value expense of investor options outstanding and foreign exchange losses of $1.9 million.

Six Month 2016 Financial Results

Net Loss Attributable to Ordinary Shareholders: Innocoll Holdings plc reported a net loss attributable to its ordinary shareholders of $35.9 million, or $1.50 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to a loss of $34.0 million, or $1.60 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc for the six months ended June 30, 2015. 

Non-GAAP diluted loss excluding non-cash expense with respect to share-based compensation and fair value gains and losses on investor options was $36.3 million or $1.51 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to a loss of $13.1 million, or $0.62 per share of Innocoll Holdings plc, for the six months June 30, 2015. 

The weighted average number of Innocoll Holdings plc ordinary shares outstanding increased from 21.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2015, to 24.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2016, primarily as a result of Innocoll Holdings plc’s follow-on public offering in the second quarter of 2016. The total number of shares outstanding as at June 30, 2016 was 29.7 million.

Revenues: Revenues were $2.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $1.3 million for six months ended June 30, 2015. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales to EUSA Pharma of CollatampG, our gentamicin implant for the treatment and prevention of post-surgical infection, following the stabilization of the EUSA Pharma business following the transfer from Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses:  R&D expenses were $25.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $10.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. R&D expenses in the six months ended June 30, 2016 included $23.6 million in external clinical research expenses, which was primarily due to ramp-up and completion of our Phase 3 XARACOLL efficacy trials and the ramp-up of our Phase 3 COGENZIA efficacy trials. R&D expenses are expected to decrease significantly in the future as the company concludes the COGENZIA clinical studies and files the XARACOLL NDA.

General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses:  G&A expenses were $13.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $7.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015.  Excluding stock-based compensation charges, G&A expenses for the six months ended December 30 2016 were $9.4 million as compared to $5.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. The increase in G&A, excluding stock-based compensation, was primarily due to $2.2 million of one-off expenses related to the re-domiciliation of the company to Ireland, our continued infrastructure build out to support clinical programs, and the initiation of our pre-commercialization investment.

Other Operating Income/(Expense): Other income was $3.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to an expense of $14.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Other income in the six months ended June 30, 2016 consisted primarily of non-cash items due to the fair value income of investor options outstanding, partially offset by interest on the company’s existing loan with the European Investment Bank (EIB). Other expense in the six months ended June 30, 2015 consisted primarily of $19.1 million fair value expense of investor options outstanding, partially offset by foreign exchange gains of $4.6 million.

Cash Position

As of June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents totaled $53.8 million compared to $22.7 million as of March 31, 2016. The cash and cash equivalents position includes the $37.4 million net proceeds from the public equity follow-on and $11.2 million from the drawdown of the second tranche of the European Investment Bank loan.

We expect that our rate of expenses will decrease significantly following the completion of our pivotal studies for XARACOLL, as our clinical studies for COGENZIA come to a conclusion, and as we complete the expansion of our Saal, Germany manufacturing facility. We plan to manage our resources to extend the cash runway for at least a year and until after the anticipated XARACOLL NDA approval, expected in the third quarter of 2017.
