(Nasdaq: SUPN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021, and associated Company developments. “The approval of Qelbree provides pediatric patients living with ADHD a therapy with proven efficacy and a tolerable safety profile, and that is not a controlled substance,” said Jack Khattar, President and CEO of Supernus Pharmaceuticals. “Our Qelbree commercial launch activities are ongoing and include engagement with both physicians and patient groups who have expressed great interest in this unique new alternative for the treatment of ADHD.” Net Product Sales First quarter 2021 net product sales were $128.4 million, 39% higher than the same period in 2020.

The Company plans to make Qelbree available in the U.S. during the second quarter of 2021.Supernus will conduct post-marketing commitment studies, including a new study of Qelbree in preschool aged children with ADHD, 4 to 5 years of age. The completion of these studies responds to a written request from the FDA and should therefore result in the FDA granting an additional 6 months of market exclusivity. Product Pipeline Update Qelbree (viloxazine, extended-release capsules) - Novel non-stimulant for the treatment of ADHD in adults In December 2020, the Company announced positive results from a Phase III trial in adult patients with ADHD and plans to submit a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the FDA for Qelbree in adults in the third quarter of 2021. SPN-830 (apomorphine infusion pump) - Continuous treatment of motor fluctuations (“on-off” episodes) in PD The company recently met with the FDA to discuss the path forward for resubmission of the SPN-830 NDA. The FDA provided additional clarity related to the contents of the November 2020 Refusal to File (RTF) letter and the requirements for resubmission. The Company now plans to resubmit the SPN-830 NDA in the second half of 2021. SPN-820 - Novel first-in-class activator of mTORC1 SPN-820 has advanced to a Phase II clinical program in treatment-resistant depression following the successful completion of a multiple-ascending dose (MAD) study in healthy volunteers. In the MAD study, SPN-820 exhibited a favorable safety and tolerability profile across a broad range of potentially therapeutic doses.The Company expects to initiate a randomized Phase II clinical study in treatment-resistant depression by the end of 2021.
