WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Fourth Quarter Results

For the fourth quarter of 2018, total revenues were $16.0 million, reflecting Afrezza net revenue of $5.7 million and collaboration and services revenue of $10.3 million.  Afrezza net revenue increased 28% on a GAAP basis compared to $4.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. In the fourth quarter of 2017, we recognized a $1.4 million change in estimate to Afrezza net revenue; when this adjustment is excluded, Afrezza net revenue increased 86% (non-GAAP) compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, primarily driven by higher product demand and a more favorable mix of cartridges. Collaborations and services revenue increased $10.2 million primarily attributable to the United Therapeutics licensing and research agreements.

Afrezza cost of goods sold (COGS) was $5.0 million for the fourth quarter of both 2018 and 2017.  Afrezza COGS in the fourth quarter of 2018 reflected a one-time charge of $2.0 million related to an amendment fee associated with our insulin supply agreement, offset by lower inventory write-offs in 2018 of $0.8 million and $0.7 million lower spending associated with manufacturing absorption. Afrezza gross profit was $0.7 million for the fourth quarter, the first quarterly gross profit recognized from Afrezza sales.  When the one-time charge of $2.0 million related to the amendment fee is excluded, Afrezza gross profit was $2.7 million (non-GAAP) for the fourth quarter.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $1.1 million compared to $3.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease of $2.4 million was primarily due to $0.8 million associated with the United Therapeutics research agreement, which was classified as a cost of collaborations and services revenue, and a decrease in spending of $0.8 million related to clinical trials.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $18.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $23.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease of $5.3 million was primarily due to $5.0 million in selling expenses associated with our first direct-to-consumer television advertising campaign in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Interest expense on notes (facility financing obligation and senior convertible notes) was $0.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. The $1.5 million decrease was primarily due to a reduction in the debt principal balances.

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $9.7 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to the $32.8 million net loss in the fourth quarter of 2017, or $0.28 per share.  The lower net loss is mainly attributable to an increase in total revenues of $11.5 million and a decrease in total expenses of $9.6 million.

Full Year 2018 Results

For the full year ended December 31, 2018, total revenues were $27.9 million, reflecting Afrezza net revenue of $17.3 million and collaborations and service revenue of $10.6 million.  Afrezza net revenue increased 88% compared to $9.2 million for the same period in 2017, primarily reflecting increased product demand and a more favorable mix of cartridges. Collaborations and services revenue increased $10.3 million primarily attributable to the United Therapeutics licensing and research agreements.

Afrezza COGS for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $19.4 million compared to $17.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.  The increase of $2.2 million was primarily attributable to an increase in costs associated with increased Afrezza sales and a one-time charge of $2.0 million related to an amendment fee associated with our insulin supply agreement, offset by a decrease of $0.8 million in inventory write-offs.

R&D expenses for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $8.7 million compared to $14.1 million for the same period in 2017. This $5.4 million decrease was primarily attributable to lower clinical trials expenses of $2.2 million, a $1.7 million decrease in salary-related expenses and a $0.8 million decrease in research and development supply and services costs.

SG&A expenses were $79.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $75.0 million for the same period in 2017.  The $4.7 million increase was primarily due to an increase of $2.9 million in headcount-related expenses associated with commercial operations, an increase in spending of $1.7 million in our human resources, accounting, corporate communications, and office support departments, a $1.4 million increase in medical affairs support, a $1.3 million increase in stock-based compensation expense, and a one-time $1.1 million expense to transition corporate support functions from Connecticut to our headquarters in California, which were partially offset by a decrease in selling expenses of $4.7 million associated with our 2017 direct-to-consumer television advertising campaign.

Interest expense on notes (facility financing obligation and senior convertible notes) was $5.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $9.5 million for the same period in 2017. The $4.4 million decrease was primarily due to a reduction in the debt principal balances.

The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $87.0 million, or $0.60 per share, compared to $117.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, or $1.13 per share. The lower net loss is mainly attributable to an increase in Afrezza net revenue of $8.1 million, an increase in collaboration revenue of $10.3 million and a decrease in total expenses of $15.5 million.

“Our fourth quarter and full year 2018 results showed excellent progress in executing against our Afrezza growth plan and recognized for the first time revenues associated with our license and collaboration agreement with United Therapeutics,” said Michael Castagna, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind Corporation.  “The fourth quarter of last year was the first time we reported gross profit for Afrezza and we ended the year with a strong cash position thanks to the United Therapeutics deal and a public offering of common stock and warrants in December.”

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at December 31, 2018 was $71.7 million compared to $48.4 million at December 31, 2017.  The increase was primarily due to the net proceeds of $26.4 million from a second quarter registered direct offering of common stock and warrants and $37.5 million from a fourth quarter public offering of common stock and warrants, partially offset by the net cash used in operating activities of $37.7 million (inclusive of two payments from United Therapeutics totaling $55.0 million).
