STOUGHTON, Mass., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (COLL), a specialty pharmaceutical company committed to being the leader in responsible pain management, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019 and provided a corporate update.
“In the first quarter of 2019, we were encouraged by the acceleration of Xtampza ER, driven by 13 new exclusive ER oxycodone payer wins that took effect January 1, 2019,” said Joe Ciaffoni, President and Chief Executive Officer of Collegium. “For the remainder of 2019, we remain focused on growing Xtampza ER, maximizing the value of the Nucynta franchise and executing our mid-term growth strategy. Collegium is well positioned to become the leader in responsible pain management.”
Recent Business Highlights
In the first quarter of 2019, Xtampza ER reached over 100,000 total prescriptions in a quarter for the first time since launch. Total prescriptions for Xtampza ER grew to 105,309 in the first quarter of 2019, representing a 71% increase over the first quarter of 2018 and 16% growth on a consecutive-quarter basis.
The number of unique Xtampza ER prescribers grew to 12,333 in the first quarter of 2019, a 21% increase on a consecutive-quarter basis.
In the first quarter of 2019, a new patent covering Xtampza ER was added to the FDA Orange Book, with an expiry date in 2036. With this recent addition to the patent estate, Xtampza ER is now covered by 15 Orange Book listed patents.

Financial Results for Quarter Ended March 31, 2019
For the quarter ended March 31, 2019 (the “2019 Quarter”), total net product revenues were $74.5 million, which included Xtampza ER net product revenues of $25.1 million and Nucynta franchise net product revenues of $49.4 million. This compared to total net product revenues of $63.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 (the “2018 Quarter”), which included $15.8 million for Xtampza ER and $48.0 million for the Nucynta franchise.
Research and development expenses were $3.0 million for the 2019 Quarter compared to $2.3 million for the 2018 Quarter. The increase was primarily related to an increase in employee-related expenses, including stock-based compensation expense.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $32.4 million for the 2019 Quarter, compared to $31.6 million for the 2018 Quarter. The increase was primarily related to an increase in our sales and marketing costs associated with Xtampza ER and the Nucynta franchise, increased professional fees and an increase in stock-based compensation, offset by lower regulatory-related costs.
Net loss for the 2019 Quarter was $9.7 million, or $0.29 per share (basic and diluted), compared to net loss of $18.7 million, or $0.57 per share (basic and diluted), for the 2018 Quarter. Net loss included stock-based compensation expense of $4.3 million and $2.7 million for the 2019 Quarter and 2018 Quarter, respectively.
Non-GAAP adjusted loss for the 2019 Quarter was $1.7 million. This compared to a non-GAAP adjusted loss of $11.6 million for the 2018 Quarter.
Collegium had cash and cash equivalents of $134.9 million as of March 31, 2019, compared to $146.6 million as of December 31, 2018. The decrease from the prior quarter was the result of lower cash receipts due to the extension of payment terms for a major wholesaler, as well as capital expenditures related to the buildout of additional manufacturing capacity.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our financial results presented on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, basis, we have included information about non-GAAP adjusted loss. We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure, when viewed with our results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliation, provides supplementary information that may be useful to analysts, investors, lenders, and other third parties in assessing the Company’s performance and results from period to period. We internally use non-GAAP adjusted loss to understand, manage and evaluate the Company as we believe it represents the performance of our core business. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, net income or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP adjusted loss is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and represents GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense for the Nucynta intangible asset, non-cash interest expense recognized on the Nucynta minimum royalty payments, and minimum royalty payments due and payable to Assertio in connection with the Commercialization Agreement. Any non-GAAP financial measures used by us may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, a non-GAAP measure used by other companies. Please see the section of this press release titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information” for a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted loss to its most directly comparable GAAP measure.
