\-- EXPAREL average daily sales at 110% of the prior year for the third quarter-- \-- Conference call today at 8:30 a.m. ET --PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacira BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCRX), the leading provider of innovative non-opioid pain management options, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2020.“Throughout the third quarter, we continued to make meaningful progress in growing EXPAREL sales despite lingering challenges in the elective surgery market due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The ongoing transition from procedures in the inpatient setting to the 23-hour ambulatory surgical center setting has accelerated because of the pandemic and we expect this trend to continue. The recent opening of our state-of-the art Pacira Innovation and Training Facility in Tampa is expected to further drive the adoption of EXPAREL and iovera° by providing digital and educational tools that meet the needs of our physician customers, as they seek to improve patient care in a variety of surgical settings. Looking ahead, Pacira remains well-positioned as the leading provider of innovative non-opioid pain management solutions,” said Dave Stack, chairman and chief executive officer of Pacira BioSciences.Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results * Total revenues were $117.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, a 12% increase versus the $104.7 million reported for the third quarter of 2019. * EXPAREL net product sales were $113.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, a 12% increase versus the $101.5 million reported for the third quarter of 2019. * Third quarter 2020 iovera° net product sales were $2.7 million, a 3% increase versus the $2.6 million reported for the third quarter of 2019. * Sales of bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension to a third-party licensee for use in veterinary practice were $0.4 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. * Third quarter 2020 royalty revenues were $0.6 million, compared to $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. * Total operating expenses were $99.9 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $102.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. * Research and development (R&D) expenses were $14.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $20.3 million in the third quarter of 2019.

In September 2020, Pacira announced the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) adopted a positive opinion recommending marketing authorization for EXPAREL for postsurgical analgesia. The CHMP is a scientific committee of the EMA that reviews medical product applications on their scientific and clinical merit. The CHMP positive opinion was based on the results of four pivotal Phase 3 studies that demonstrated improvements in pain reduction and opioid use. * Collaboration with IPG to reduce postsurgical opioid prescribing and surgical procedure costs. In September 2020, IPG, the industry-leading provider of surgical cost management solutions, and Pacira announced a collaboration to reduce postsurgical opioid prescribing and surgical procedure costs across the IPG national health plan and provider network. Through this partnership, IPG will offer reimbursement for EXPAREL to its health plan provider clients across the country to further support its mission to bring high quality, cost-effective surgical solutions to the U.S. healthcare market. Pacira will work alongside IPG to provide education and training to ensure consistent, positive outcomes are achieved across procedures, clinicians, and provider facilities.Today’s Conference Call and Webcast ReminderThe Pacira management team will host a conference call to discuss the company’s financial results and recent developments today, Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Pacira management uses these measures to better analyze its financial results, estimate its future cost of goods sold, gross margins, R&D expense and SG&A expense outlook for 2020 and to help make managerial decisions. In management’s opinion, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of our financial statements by providing greater transparency into the operating performance at Pacira and its future outlook. Such measures should not be deemed to be an alternative to GAAP requirements or a measure of liquidity for Pacira. Non-GAAP measures are also unlikely to be comparable with non-GAAP disclosures released by other companies. See the tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA.About Pacira BioSciencesPacira BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCRX) is a leading provider of non-opioid pain management and regenerative health solutions dedicated to advancing and improving outcomes for health care practitioners and their patients. The company’s long-acting local analgesic, EXPAREL® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) was commercially launched in the United States in April 2012. EXPAREL utilizes DepoFoam®, a unique and proprietary product delivery technology that encapsulates drugs without altering their molecular structure, and releases them over a desired period of time. In April 2019, Pacira acquired the iovera°® system, a handheld cryoanalgesia device used to deliver precise, controlled doses of cold temperature only to targeted nerves. To learn more about Pacira, including the corporate mission to reduce overreliance on opioids, visit www.pacira.com.About EXPARELEXPAREL (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) is indicated for single-dose infiltration in adults to produce postsurgical local analgesia and as an interscalene brachial plexus nerve block to produce postsurgical regional analgesia. Safety and efficacy have not been established in other nerve blocks. The product combines bupivacaine with DepoFoam, a proven product delivery technology that delivers medication over a desired time period. EXPAREL represents the first and only multivesicular liposome local anesthetic that can be utilized in the peri- or postsurgical setting. By utilizing the DepoFoam platform, a single dose of EXPAREL delivers bupivacaine over time, providing significant reductions in cumulative pain scores with up to a 78 percent decrease in opioid consumption; the clinical benefit of the opioid reduction was not demonstrated. Additional information is available at www.EXPAREL.com.Important Safety Information for PatientsEXPAREL should not be used in obstetrical paracervical block anesthesia. In studies where EXPAREL was injected into the wound, the most common side effects were nausea, constipation, and vomiting. In studies where EXPAREL was injected near a nerve, the most common side effects were nausea, fever, and constipation. EXPAREL is not recommended to be used in patients younger than 18 years old or in pregnant women. Tell your healthcare provider if you have liver disease, since this may affect how the active ingredient (bupivacaine) in EXPAREL is eliminated from your body. EXPAREL should not be injected into the spine, joints, or veins. The active ingredient in EXPAREL: can affect your nervous system and your cardiovascular system; may cause an allergic reaction; may cause damage if injected into your joints.About iovera°The iovera° system is used to destroy tissue during surgical procedures by applying freezing cold. It can also be used to produce lesions in peripheral nervous tissue by the application of cold to the selected site for the blocking of pain. It is also indicated for the relief of pain and symptoms associated with osteoarthritis of the knee for up to 90 days. In one study, the majority of the patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee experienced pain and system relief beyond 150 days.1 The iovera° system’s “1×90” Smart Tip configuration (indicating one needle which is 90 mm long) can also facilitate target nerve location by conducting electrical nerve stimulation from a separate nerve stimulator. The iovera° system is not indicated for treatment of central nervous system tissue.Important Safety InformationThe iovera° system is contraindicated for use in patients with the following: Cryoglobulinemia; Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria; cold urticaria; Raynaud’s disease; open and/or infected wounds at or near the treatment line. Potential complications: As with any surgical treatment that uses needle-based therapy, there is potential for temporary site-specific reactions, including but not limited to: bruising (ecchymosis); swelling (edema); inflammation and/or redness (erythema); pain and/or tenderness; altered sensation (localized dysesthesia). Typically, these reactions resolve with no physician intervention. Patients may help the healing process by applying ice packs to the affected sites, and by taking over-the-counter analgesics.Forward-Looking StatementsAny statements in this press release about the company’s future expectations, plans, trends, outlook, projections and prospects, and other statements containing the words “believes,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “can” and similar expressions, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
