MannKind Corporation Reports 2017 First Quarter Financial Results


VALENCIA, Calif., May 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) (TASE:MNKD) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Key results include:

  • Total revenue for the quarter of $3.0 million
  • Deferred revenue of $1.8 million as of March 31, 2017
  • Net loss for the quarter of $16.3 million
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $48.0 million at March 31, 2017

First Quarter Results
For the first quarter of 2017, total net revenue of $3.0 million was comprised of $1.8 million from the sale of surplus bulk insulin to a third party and $1.2 million of recognized Afrezza product sales as dispensed to patients. As of March 31, 2017, deferred net revenue included $1.8 million of Afrezza product shipped to the third-party logistics provider and wholesale distributors, but not yet recognized as revenue.

Cost of goods sold was $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, a decrease of approximately $2.7 million or 52%, due primarily to a $0.7 million decrease in under-absorbed labor and overhead as a result of the reduction in work force, $0.3 million related to the revaluation of inventory and deferred costs of commercial sales, and a reduction of $1.9 million for capitalized costs related to the manufacturing of Afrezza that has not yet been sold in 2017. These decreases are partially offset by $0.3 million of cost of goods sold attributed to commercial product sales which consist of manufacturing costs for Afrezza dispensed to patients.

Research and development expenses were $3.1 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $5.1 million in the first quarter of 2016, a decrease of $2.0 million or 39%, due primarily to a decrease in personnel costs including related stock compensation expense of $2.2 million resulting from reductions in staff and decreases in outsourced services of $0.4 million.  These decreases were partially offset by $0.5 million in clinical trial costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $15.4 million for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $7.4 million for the same quarter of 2016, an increase of $8.0 million or 108%. Our former partner was responsible for selling activities in the first quarter of 2016. G&A expenses increased $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the same quarter of 2016, primarily due to increased spending on regulatory activities associated with Afrezza. 

The net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $16.3 million, or $0.17 per share based on 95.7 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to the net loss of $24.9 million, or $0.29 per share on 85.8 million weighted average shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2016. The number of common shares outstanding at March 31, 2017 was 95.8 million.

Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2017 were $48.0 million, compared to $22.9 million at the end of 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, we received $30.6 million from Sanofi, pursuant to the settlement of the insulin put option, $16.7 million from the sale of a surplus building, and $2.1 million from shipments of Afrezza. Currently, $30.1 million remains available to borrow under the amended loan arrangement with The Mann Group.
