Aytu Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2019 / Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ:AYTU), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on global commercialization of novel products addressing significant medical needs, today will provide an overview of its business, including the company’s operational and financial results for its fiscal first quarter 2020 that ended September 30, 2019. The company will host a live conference call and webcast today at 4:30 p.m. ET. Conference call details are provided at the end of this press release.

2020 First Quarter Financial and Corporate Highlights

  • Reports revenue of $1.44 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019.
  • Ends the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $7.3 million, which does not include $10 million raised in a private placement closed subsequent to quarter end.
  • Announced a definitive agreement to acquire Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc, and purchased a portfolio of prescription products from Cerecor, Inc, resulting in Pro Forma revenue1 of approximately $10.6 million and $42.7 million for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2019.
  • Raised $10 million (approximately $9.3 million after fees and expenses) through a private placement with healthcare institutional investors, resulting in Pro Forma net cash2, cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $16.6 million as of September 30, 2019.

Commenting on the first quarter of 2019, Josh Disbrow, Chief Executive Officer of Aytu BioScience, stated, “During and subsequent to the quarter ending September 30 we announced two transformative transactions that increase our scale and accelerate our expected path to profitability. Those two transactions were the definitive agreement to acquire Innovus Pharmaceuticals and asset purchase agreement to acquire a portfolio of prescription products from Cerecor, Inc. These transactions significantly bolster the company’s product portfolio to now include nine prescription products and, upon the closing of the Innovus acquisition, over thirty consumer health products. The result of this combination with Innovus and the Cerecor commercial portfolio yields trailing twelve-month combined pro forma revenue for the period ending September 30 of approximately $43 million.”

Mr. Disbrow continued, “While boosting our top line run rate, we also expect these transactions to accelerate the company’s path to profitability. Both Innovus and the Cerecor commercial business operate at or near breakeven from a cash standpoint, so we are adding increased revenue scale without a corresponding increase in cash burn. We feel we are well positioned to reach break-even more rapidly as a result of the cost saving synergies the two transactions provide, as well as expected growth in revenue from product cross selling and increased physician reach due to the increase scale across combined sales forces. Additionally, as context, Aytu grew by 100% from fiscal 2018 to 2019, and Innovus has grown over 300% from 2017 to 2019. Through the combination of Aytu and Innovus, coupled with the asset purchase from Cerecor, we expect the consolidated entity to continue on a significant growth path while realizing operational synergies across the new combined organization to achieve profitability sooner than the company would have prior to the consummation of these combinations.”

[1] Pro Forma revenue is a non-GAAP metric calculated by combining the reported net revenues for: (i) Aytu BioScience, Inc., (ii) the net revenues associated with the acquired pediatric pharmaceutical products from Cerecor, which closed November 1, 2019, and (iii) the net revenues associated with the pending acquisition of Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

[2] Pro Forma net cash is a non-GAAP metric calculated by combining the (i) cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash on hand as of September 30, 2019, and (ii) the net cash proceeds from the October 2019 private placement financing.
