74 Days ago

– Company to host conference call today at 8:30am ET –

DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEOS), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative extended-release (XR) products using its proprietary modified-release drug delivery and orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) technology platforms, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019 and provided a business update.

“We continued to make solid progress as we execute our new commercial strategy for our ADHD product portfolio. Throughout the first quarter, we realized improvements in net revenue per pack, primarily driven by our focus on more profitable business channels and market segments,” said Jerry McLaughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Additionally, we implemented a number of new initiatives designed to foster the long-term growth of our business. We expect to demonstrate the impact of these cumulative strategies with continued increases in net revenue per pack, growth in prescription volume and increased market share in our target prescriber base during the second half of 2019. Turning to our pipeline, we have advanced the IND-enabling studies for NT0502, our product candidate for the treatment of sialorrhea, and anticipate commencing a Phase 1 clinical trial for this molecule in the first half of 2020.”

Recent Corporate Highlights

  • Demonstrated Continued Growth in Key Commercial Metrics: Neos’ two core commercial attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) products, Adzenys XR-ODT® and Cotempla XR-ODT®, delivered strong growth in both prescriptions and net revenue per pack for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.

  • Launched Neos RxConnect, a New Co-Pay Program for Commercially Insured Patients: In the first quarter of 2019, the Company launched Neos RxConnect, a Neos-sponsored patient co-pay assistance program operating through retail and independent network pharmacies. This “best-in-class” program is designed to enhance access to Neos medicines for commercial patients and healthcare providers by reducing patient co-pays and simplifying the process for filling prescriptions at participating pharmacies.  The Company expects to expand this program to additional pharmacies throughout 2019.
  • NT0502 on Track to Enter the Clinic in 1H 2020: NT0502 is a new chemical entity and a selective muscarinic receptor antagonist that will utilize the same proprietary microparticle technology used in the Company’s four approved products. NT0502 is being developed to address the significant unmet medical needs for the treatment of chronic sialorrhea (excessive drooling) in adult and pediatric patients with neurological conditions, including cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, mental retardation and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling studies are ongoing and the Company anticipates initiating a Phase 1 clinical trial in the first half of 2020.

Select Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2019

  • Total product revenues were $14.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $10.7 million for the same period in 2018.
