Supernus Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:SUPN), a specialty pharmaceutical company, reported in the November 2, 2012 filing of the Form 10-Q consolidated financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, and provided an update on key accomplishments to date.

Third quarter 2012 Financial Results

  • Cash, cash equivalents, unrestricted marketable securities and long-term investments of $62.5 million at September 30, 2012.
  • Research and development (R&D) expense for third quarter 2012 was $8.3 million compared with $8.4 million in 2011. This decrease is attributable to lower clinical trial costs for Trokendi XRTM.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense for third quarter 2012 was $4.1 million compared with $1.5 million in 2011. The increase was primarily due to higher sales and marketing expenses associated with preparing for launches of Oxtellar XRTM and Trokendi XRTM.
  • Net loss applicable to common shareholders for third quarter 2012 was $13.5 million or $0.55 per common share (based on 24.5 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding), compared with $10.6 million, or $6.64 per common share, for 2011 (based on 1.6 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding). Net loss per share decreased due to the significant number of common shares issued in May 2012 in connection with our IPO.

Nine months ended September 30, 2012 Financial Results

  • R&D expense for the first nine months of 2012 was $18.4 compared with $23.1 million in 2011. This decrease was primarily due to the conclusion of the Oxtellar XRTM and Trokendi XRTM clinical trials in 2011.
  • SG&A expense for the first nine months of 2012 was $11.5 million compared with $5.1 million in 2011. The increase was primarily due to an increase in sales and marketing costs associated with preparing for launches of Oxtellar XRTM and Trokendi XRTM.
  • Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the first nine months of 2012 was $33.9 million or $2.36 per common share (based on 14.4 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding), compared with $30.7 million, or $19.28 per common share, for 2011 (based on 1.6 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding). Net loss per share decreased due to the significant number of common shares issued in May 2012 in connection with our IPO.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our anticipated cash burn for 2012 continues to be in the range of $55 million to $60 million.  Based on our current plans, Supernus continues to anticipate that our current cash, cash equivalents and unrestricted marketable securities as of September 30, 2012 should be sufficient to fund operations into the second quarter of 2013.
