NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Product revenue growth of 69% resulting from diversified revenue streams, including DERMAdoctor products in the third quarter of 2022

  • DERMAdoctor® skincare product sales at highest level since the acquisition a year ago

  • Achieved continued online Avenova® Spray unit growth

  • Optimized digital marketing programs drove higher sales on lower expenses

Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time today

EMERYVILLE, Calif., November 14, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NovaBay® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NBY) reports financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and provides a business update. Financial results for the first nine months of 2022 include DERMAdoctor, which NovaBay acquired on November 5, 2021.

"Revenues grew an impressive 69% as we benefitted from the DERMAdoctor acquisition and our expanded product portfolio. Highlights of the quarter include the most DERMAdoctor product sales since the acquisition and continued year-over-year growth in online Avenova Spray unit sales. Avenova companion products and our branded wound care products also made solid contributions to revenue during the quarter," said Justin Hall, NovaBay CEO. "Notably, we achieved this growth while optimizing our digital marketing programs, with lower sales and marketing spend over the prior year even with the additional expenses to promote DERMAdoctor products.

"We are excited about our prospects going forward," he added. "The initiatives we put in place earlier this year are gaining traction and we received a significant order for DERMAdoctor products from a major U.S. retailer. Additionally, we expect to benefit from growing DERMAdoctor online sales in international markets, in particular in China as our digital marketing programs get underway in that country."

Third Quarter Financial Results

Net product revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $3.8 million, an increase of 69% from $2.3 million for the prior-year period, and included $2.2 million of Avenova-branded product sales, $1.3 million of DERMAdoctor product sales, and $0.3 million of PhaseOne® branded wound care product sales.

Gross margin on net product revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was 62%, compared with 69% for the third quarter of 2021, with the decrease primarily due to higher sales of lower margin DERMAdoctor and wound care products.

Sales and marketing expenses were $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared with $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2021. The third quarter of 2022 included lower Avenova digital advertising and related consulting expenses, which were partially offset by sales and marketing expenses incurred for DERMAdoctor products. General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $1.0 million, compared with $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2021, and included $0.2 million in DERMAdoctor G&A expenses and $0.1 million from the amortization of intangibles related to the DERMAdoctor acquisition, offset by lower variable compensation expenses. Research and development (R&D) expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $41 thousand, compared with $10 thousand for the prior-year period.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $2.8 million, compared with $3.8 million for the third quarter of 2021.

For the three months ended September 30, 2022, non-cash loss on the modification of common stock warrants was $1.9 million, non-cash gain on changes in fair value of warrant liability was $2.4 million, non-cash retained earnings reduction due to adjustment to the Series B preferred stock conversion price was $5.7 million, and other expense was $171 thousand–each related to the warrant reprice transaction completed in September 2022 (the "2022 Warrant Reprice Transaction"). There were no comparable items for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2022 was $5.8 million, or $0.10 per share, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2021 of $2.3 million, or $0.05 per share.

Nine Month Financial Results

Net product revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $10.7 million, an increase of 53% from $7.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Gross margin on net product revenue for the first nine months of 2022 was 56%, compared with 69% for the first nine months of 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, sales and marketing expenses decreased slightly and G&A expenses increased 12%, both compared with the nine months ended September 30, 2021. R&D expenses were $108 thousand for the first nine months of 2022, versus $36 thousand for the prior-year period.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, non-cash loss on the modification of common stock warrants was $1.9 million, non-cash retained earnings reduction due to adjustment to the Series B preferred stock conversion price was $5.7 million, and other expense was $178 thousand–each related to the 2022 Warrant Reprice Transaction. For the same period, non-cash gain on changes in fair value of warrant liability was $4.5 million, which was related to both the 2022 Warrant Reprice Transaction and the November 2021 Warrants, and non-cash gain on changes in fair value of contingent liability was $219 thousand, which was related to the DERMAdoctor acquisition.

The net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $8.1 million, or $0.15 per share, compared with a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 of $5.7 million, or $0.13 per share.

NovaBay had cash and cash equivalents of $3.9 million as of September 30, 2022, compared with $7.5 million as of December 31, 2021. The Company received approximately $2.1 million in gross proceeds from the 2022 Warrant Reprice Transaction completed in September 2022.
