  • Afrezza net revenue grew 28% and 246% vs. 2Q 2017 and 3Q 2016, respectively

  • Exchanged senior convertible notes of $27.7 million due August 2018 for senior convertible notes of $23.7 million due October 2021 and 973,236 shares of the Company's common stock

Third Quarter Results

For the third quarter of 2017, Afrezza net revenue of $2.0 million grew 28% vs. the second quarter of 2017 and 246% vs. the third quarter of 2016 (the first quarter for MannKind sales and commercial support of Afrezza after the termination of the Sanofi agreement).  As of September 30, 2017, the amount of Afrezza shipped to the wholesale and retail channels, but not yet recognized as revenue, was $3.0 million, an increase of $0.4 million from June 30, 2017.   A reconciliation of gross to net revenues can be found in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Cost of goods sold was $4.6 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to (i) $5.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, a decrease of $0.5 million primarily related to a write-down of inventory in the second quarter, and (ii) $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.2 million.

Research and development expenses were $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to (i) $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $1.3 million primarily related to starting  the Time in Range ("STAT" study) and the pediatric study, and (ii) $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.4 million, primarily due to increases in clinical trials partially offset by a decrease in compensation expense related to a reduction in workforce in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $17.7 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to (i) $18.6 million for the second quarter of 2017, a decrease of $1.1 million primarily from a reduction in commercial support expenses and (ii) $13.1 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $4.6 million primarily due to scaling up the Afrezza commercial infrastructure during the first quarter of 2017.  

The net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $32.9 million, or a loss of $0.31 per share based on 104.7 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to net income of $126.5 million, or $1.32 per share on 95.6 million weighted average shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2016.  The net income in the third quarter of 2016 included net revenue — collaboration of $161.8 million related to the termination of the Sanofi agreement.

Nine Months Results

Due to the termination of the Sanofi agreement in early 2016 and MannKind's commencement of commercial activities for Afrezza in the third quarter of 2016, a comparative analysis for sales and commercial support between the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016 is not meaningful.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, total net revenue of $7.2 million was comprised of $4.7 million of Afrezza net sales, $1.7 million from the net sales of surplus bulk insulin to a third party, $0.6 million from the sale of certain oncology intellectual property, and $0.2 million from collaboration net revenue. 

Cost of goods sold was $12.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $12.9 million for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $0.7 million.

Research and development expenses were $10.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $13.4 million for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $2.7 million or 21%, due primarily to a decrease in compensation expense of $5.1 million as a result of the reduction in workforce in the fourth quarter of 2016. This decrease was partially offset by a $2 million increase in clinical trial expense.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $51.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $31.6 million for the same period in 2016, an increase of $20.1 million due to the change in the commercial support structure after termination of the Sanofi agreement in 2016. 

The net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $84.5 million, or a loss of $0.84 per share based on 100.1 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to net income of $71.7 million, or $0.79 per share on 90.8 million weighted average shares outstanding at September 30, 2016.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2017 decreased to $20.1 million from $43.4 million at June 30, 2017, primarily due to cash burn for the third quarter of 2017 of $23.3 million.  The cash balance as of September 30, 2017 does not include $57.7 million of net proceeds received from the registered direct offering of the Company's common stock completed in October 2017.

Afrezza Label Change

On September 29, 2017, the U.S. FDA approved an update to the Afrezza prescribing information for the inclusion of study data that describes the time action profile by dosage strength; clarity on "Starting" and "Adjusting" mealtime doses; and updated pregnancy and lactation guidance.
