NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(U.S. DOLLARS, IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)
(Unaudited)
1. Organization, basis of presentation and summary of significant policies:

Overview
BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) is a rapidly growing specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to patients living with serious and complex chronic conditions. The Company has built a portfolio of products that includes utilizing its novel and proprietary BioErodible MucoAdhesive ("BEMA") drug-delivery technology to develop and commercialize new applications of proven therapies aimed at addressing important unmet medical needs. The Company commercializes its products in the U.S. using its own sales force while working in partnership with third parties to commercialize its products outside the U.S.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting of normal and recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of these financial statements. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2020 has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements included in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. Certain footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. It is recommended that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
As used herein, the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, is referred to as the “Common Stock” and the Company’s preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, is referred to as the “Preferred Stock”.
Principles of consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Arius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Arius Two, Inc. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated.
Use of estimates in financial statements
The preparation of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Company reviews all significant estimates affecting the condensed consolidated financial statements on a recurring basis and records the effect of any necessary adjustments prior to their issuance. Significant estimates made by the Company include: revenue recognition associated with sales allowances such as government program rebates, customer voucher redemptions, commercial contracts, rebates and chargebacks; sales returns reserves; sales bonuses; stock-based compensation; and deferred income taxes.
Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consist of operating and money market accounts. Cash equivalents are carried at cost which approximates fair value due to their short-term nature. The Company considers all highly-liquid investments with an original maturity of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents.
The Company maintains cash equivalent balances with financial institutions that management believes are of high credit quality. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents accounts at times may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts. The Company believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk from cash and cash equivalents.
Inventory
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value with costs determined for each batch under the first-in, first-out method. Inventory consists of raw materials, work in process and finished goods. Raw materials include amounts of active pharmaceutical ingredient for a product to be manufactured; work in process includes the bulk inventory of laminate (the

(U.S. DOLLARS, IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)

Company’s drug delivery film) prior to being packaged for sale; and finished goods include pharmaceutical products ready for commercial sale.
On a quarterly basis, the Company analyzes its inventory levels and records allowances for inventory that has become obsolete, inventory that has a cost basis in excess of the expected net realizable value and inventory that is in excess of expected demand based upon projected product sales. Inventory obsolescence reserves at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 were $3.4 million and $2.3 million, respectively.
Revenue recognition
Product sales
Product sales amounts relate to sales of BELBUCA and Symproic. Product sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 also included sales of BUNAVAIL. Product sales for BUNAVAIL during the three months ended September 30, 2020 were related to the release of gross to net reserves. The Company recognizes revenue on product sales when control of the promised goods is transferred to its customers in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for transferring those goods. The Company accounts for a contract when it has approval and commitment from both parties, the rights of the parties are identified, payment terms are identified, the contract has commercial substance and collectability of consideration is probable. When determining whether the customer has obtained control of the goods, the Company considers any future performance obligations. Generally, there is no post-shipment obligation on product sold.
Product royalty revenues
Product royalty revenue amounts are based on sales revenue of the PAINKYL™ product under the Company’s license agreement with TTY Biopharm Co., Ltd., ("TTY") and the BREAKYL™ product under the Company’s license agreement with Meda AB, which was acquired by Mylan N.V. and later acquired by Viatris, Inc. (which we refer to herein as Viatris). Product royalty revenues are recognized when control of the product is transferred to the license partner in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received. Supplemental sales-based product royalty revenue may also be earned upon the subsequent sale of the product at agreed upon contractual rates.

Performance obligations
A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer. A contract’s transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. The majority of the Company’s product sales contracts have a single performance obligation as the promise to transfer the individual goods is not separately identifiable from other promises in the contracts and, therefore, not distinct. Shipping and handling activities are considered to be fulfillment activities and are not considered to be a separate performance obligation. The Company has assessed the existence of a significant financing component in the agreements with its customers. The trade payment terms with its customers do not exceed one year and therefore the Company has elected to apply the practical expedient and no amount of consideration has been allocated as a financing component.

Transaction price, including variable consideration
Revenue from product sales is recorded at the net sales price, which includes estimates of variable consideration for which reserves are established. Components of variable consideration include trade discounts and allowances, product returns, government chargebacks, discounts and rebates, and other incentives, such as voucher programs, and other fee for service amounts that are detailed within contracts between the Company and its customers relating to the Company’s sale of its products.
The Company establishes allowances for estimated rebates, chargebacks and product returns based on numerous qualitative and quantitative factors, including:
specific contractual terms of agreements with customers;
estimated levels of inventory in the distribution channel;
historical rebates, chargebacks and returns of products;
direct communication with customers;
anticipated introduction of competitive products or generics;
6

BIODELIVERY SCIENCES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(U.S. DOLLARS, IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)
(Unaudited)
anticipated pricing strategy changes by the Company and/or its competitors;
analysis of prescription data gathered by third-party prescription data providers;
the impact of changes in state and federal regulations; and
the estimated remaining shelf life of products.
In its analyses, the Company uses prescription data purchased from a third-party data provider to develop estimates of historical inventory channel sell-through. The Company utilizes an internal analysis to compare historical net product shipments to estimated historical prescriptions written. Based on that analysis, management develops an estimate of the quantity of product in the channel which may be subject to various rebate and chargeback exposures. To estimate months of ending inventory in the Company’s distribution channel, the Company divides estimated ending inventory in the distribution channel by the Company’s recent prescription data, not considering any future anticipated demand growth beyond the succeeding quarter. Monthly for each product line, the Company prepares an internal estimate of ending inventory units in the distribution channel by adding estimated inventory in the channel at the beginning of the period, plus net product shipments for the period, less estimated prescriptions written for the period, and less units included in the sales returns reserve expected to be returned. This is done for each product line by applying a rate of historical activity for rebates and chargebacks, adjusted for relevant quantitative and qualitative factors discussed above, to the potential exposed product estimated, net of reserved return units, to be in the distribution channel. In addition, the Company receives daily information from the major wholesalers regarding their sales and actual on-hand inventory levels of the Company’s products. This enables the Company to execute accurate provisioning procedures.
Revenue from product sales is recorded after considering the impact of the following variable consideration amounts at the time of revenue recognition:
Product returns-Consistent with industry practice, the Company offers contractual return rights that allow its customers to return the products within an 18-month period that begins six months prior to and ends twelve months after expiration of the products. The Company estimates product returns reserves based upon historical return rates adjusted for qualitative factors and are applied to open product batches that are currently eligible for returns, or will be eligible in the future, within company policy. Other factors considered include expected marketplace changes and the remaining shelf life of product batches. Product returns reserves for newly launched products are based on historical rates of similar products or pre-determined percentage.
Government rebates and chargebacks-Government rebates and chargebacks include mandated discounts under Medicaid, Medicare, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and other government agencies ("Government Payors"). The Company estimates the rebates and chargebacks to Government Payors based upon a combination of historical experience, product pricing, estimated payor mix, product growth, and the mix of contract and agreement terms. These reserves are recorded in the same period the revenue is recognized, resulting in a reduction of product revenue and the establishment of a current liability, which is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. In addition, the pricing of covered products under Medicaid is subject to complex calculations and involves interpretation of government rules, regulations and policies as well as adjustments based on current trends in utilization. For Medicare, the Company also estimates the number of patients in the prescription drug coverage gap for whom the Company will owe an additional liability under the Medicare Part D program. The Company estimates the rebates and chargebacks that it will provide to Government Payors based upon (i) the government-mandated discounts applicable to government-funded programs, (ii) information obtained from its customers and (iii) information obtained from other third parties regarding the payor mix for its products. The Company’s liability for these rebates consists of estimates of claims for the current quarter and estimated future claims that will be made for product shipments that have been recognized as revenue, but remain in the distribution channel inventories at the end of each reporting period.
Commercial Contracts-The Company estimates the rebates to commercial contracts based upon a combination of historical experience, product pricing, estimated payor mix, product growth, and the mix of contract and agreement terms. These reserves are recorded in the same period the revenue is recognized, resulting in a reduction of product revenue and the establishment of a current liability, which is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Patient Assistance Voucher program-The Company, from time to time, offers certain promotional product-related incentives to eligible patients. The Company has voucher programs for BELBUCA and Symproic whereby the Company offers a point-of-sale subsidy to retail consumers. The Company estimates its liabilities for these voucher programs based on the current utilization and historical redemption rates as reported to the Company by a third-party claims processing organization. The
7

BIODELIVERY SCIENCES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(U.S. DOLLARS, IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)
(Unaudited)
Company accounts for the costs of these special promotional programs as price adjustments, which are a reduction of gross revenue.
Trade discounts and distribution fees-Trade discounts relate to prompt settlement discounts provided to customers. In addition, the Company compensates its customers for distribution of its products and the provision of data. The Company has determined that such services received to date are not distinct from its sale of products and may not reasonably represent fair value for these services. Therefore, estimates of these payments are recorded as a reduction of revenue based on contractual terms.
There can be a significant lag between the Company's establishment of an estimate and the timing of the invoicing or claim. The Company believes it has made reasonable estimates for future rebates and claims, however, these estimates involve assumptions pertaining to contractual utilization and performance, and payor mix. If the performance or mix across third-party payors is different from the Company’s estimates, the Company may be required to pay higher or lower total price adjustments and/or chargebacks than it had estimated.
Cost of sales
Cost of sales includes the direct costs attributable to the production of BELBUCA and Symproic. It includes raw materials, production costs at the Company’s contract manufacturing sites, quality testing directly related to the products, inventory reserves, and depreciation on equipment that the Company has purchased to produce BELBUCA, Symproic and formerly BUNAVAIL. It also includes any batches not meeting specifications and raw material yield losses. Yield losses and the costs related to batches not meeting specifications are expensed as incurred. Cost of sales is recognized when sold to the wholesaler from our distribution center.
For BREAKYL and PAINKYL (the Company’s out-licensed breakthrough cancer pain therapies), cost of sales includes all costs related to creating the product at the Company’s contract manufacturing location in Germany. The Company’s contract manufacturer bills the Company for the final product, which includes materials, direct labor costs, quality testing, and certain overhead costs as outlined in applicable supply agreements.
Cost of sales also includes royalty expenses that the Company owes to third parties.
Measurement of credit losses of financial instruments
The Company is exposed to credit losses primarily through its product sales. The Company assesses each counterparty’s ability to pay for the products it sells by conducting a credit review. The credit review considers the Company's expected billing exposure and timing for payment and the counterparty’s established credit rating or the Company's assessment of the counterparty’s creditworthiness based on the Company's analysis of their financial statements when a credit rating is not available. The Company also considers contract terms and conditions, and business strategy in its evaluation. A credit limit is established for each counterparty based on the outcome of this review.
The Company monitors its ongoing credit exposure through active review of counterparty balances against contract terms and due dates. The Company's activities include timely account reconciliations, dispute resolution and payment confirmations. The Company may employ collection agencies and legal counsel to pursue recovery of defaulted receivables.
As of September 30, 2021, the Company reported $57.6 million of trade receivables within accounts receivable. Based on an aging analysis at September 30, 2021, 96% of the Company's accounts receivable were outstanding less than 30 days. There was no change to the allowance for doubtful accounts and credit losses between September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The Company writes off accounts receivable when management determines they are uncollectible and credits payments subsequently received on such receivables to bad debt expense in the period received.
New Accounting Pronouncements, adopted
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740)—Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which is intended to simplify accounting for income taxes. It removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020 and early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted Topic 740 during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and determined that the new guidance did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

The Company has reviewed other new accounting pronouncements that were issued as of September 30, 2021 and does not believe that these pronouncements are applicable to the Company, or that they will have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company measures the fair value of instruments in accordance with GAAP which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.
GAAP defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. GAAP also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The Company considers the carrying amount of its cash and cash equivalents to approximate fair value due to short-term nature of this instrument. GAAP describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 – quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable
Level 3 – inputs that are unobservable (for example cash flow modeling inputs based on assumptions)
The following table summarizes the financial instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2021:

6. Acquired product rights:
On August 3, 2021, (the “Effective Date”), the Company and Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of India (“DRL”), entered into an asset purchase agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) for the acquisition by the Company from DRL of certain patents, trademarks, regulatory approvals and other rights related to ELYXYB™ (celecoxib oral solution) (the “Product”) and its commercialization in the United States and Canada (the “Territory”). The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement occurred on September 9, 2021 (the "Closing").
Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company paid DRL a $6 million up-front payment at the Closing. In addition, the Company will pay DRL $9 million on the twelve-month anniversary of the Effective Date and up to an additional $9 million upon achievement of certain regulatory milestones and quarterly earn-out payments on potential sales of the Product in the Territory that range from high single digits to the low double digits (subject to reduction in certain circumstances) of net sales based on volume of sales. DRL will also be entitled to one-time payments upon the achievement of six escalating sales milestones, which range from $4 million to be paid upon the achievement of $50 million in net sales in a calendar year to $100 million to be paid upon the achievement of $1 billion in net sales in a calendar year up to a total of $262 million.
The Company accounted for the ELYXYB purchase as an asset acquisition under ASC 805-10-55-5b, which provides guidance for asset acquisitions. Under the guidance, if substantially all the acquisition is made up of one asset or several similar assets, then the acquisition is an asset acquisition. The Company believes that the asset purchase agreement and other assets acquired from DRL are similar and considers them all to be intangible assets.
The total purchase price was allocated to the acquired asset based on their relative estimated fair values, as follows:
ELYXYB acquired product rights$15,000
Transaction expenses455
Total value$15,455
The $9 million twelve-month anniversary payment has been recorded in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.

7. Notes payable:
On May 23, 2019, the Company entered into a Loan Agreement with BPCR LIMITED PARTNERSHIP (the successor-in-interest to Biopharma Credit PLC), for a senior secured credit facility consisting of a term loan of $60.0 million (the “Term Loan”), with the ability to draw an additional $20.0 million within twelve months of the closing date, which the Company drew down on May 22, 2020.
The loan facility carries a 72-month term with interest only payments on the term loan for the first 36 months. The Term Loan will mature in May 2025 and bears an interest rate of 7.5% plus the LIBOR rate on the first day for the quarter, with a floor of 2% for the LIBOR rate (LIBOR effective rate as of July 1, 2021 was 0.14%.) The Term Loan is subject to mandatory prepayment provisions that require prepayment upon change of control.
On September 23, 2021, the Company elected to repay $20 million plus accrued interest of $1.5 million, representing a portion of the first tranche. The Term loan includes the option for the Company to paydown up to $20 million of tranche A without incurring any prepayment penalties after the 24 month anniversary of the loan. As a result, no prepayment penalty was incurred in connection with this prepayment.
The debt balance has been categorized within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The notes payable debt balance as of September 30, 2021 approximates its fair value based on prevailing interest rates as of the balance sheet date.
The following table represents future maturities of the notes payable obligation as of September 30, 2021:

9. Stockholders’ equity:
Common Stock
On November 4, 2020, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $25 million of the Company's shares of Common Stock. The timing and amount of any shares purchased on the open market will be determined based on the Company's evaluation of market conditions, share price and other factors. The Company plans to utilize existing cash on hand to fund the share repurchase program.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a cumulative total of 3,202,690 shares, with a weighted average price of $3.72, for a value of $11.9 million,were repurchased and recorded as Treasury Stock in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.
Stock-based compensation
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a total of 3,192,505 options to purchase Common Stock, with an aggregate fair market value of approximately $12.9 million, were granted to employees, executive officers and Board of Directors of the Company. Options have a term of 10 years from the grant date. Options granted to employees and officers will vest ratably over a three-year period. Options granted to Board of Directors vest one half immediately and the remaining half on the anniversary of grant.
The fair value of each option award is estimated on the grant date using the Black-Scholes valuation model that uses assumptions for expected volatility, expected dividends, expected term, expected rate of forfeiture and the risk-free interest rate. Expected volatilities are based on implied volatilities from historical volatility of the Common Stock, and other factors estimated over the expected term of the options.
Expected term of options granted is derived using the “simplified method” which computes expected term as the average of the sum of the vesting term plus contract term. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for the period of the expected term.
The key assumptions used in determining the fair value of options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 follows:
Expected price volatility53.70%-59.87%
Risk-free interest rate0.50%-1.17%

10. Commitments and contingencies:
The Company is involved from time to time in routine legal matters incidental to our business. Based upon available information, the Company believes that the resolution of such matters will not have a material adverse effect on its condensed consolidated financial position or results of operations. Except as discussed below, the Company is not the subject of any pending legal proceedings and, to the knowledge of management, no proceedings are presently contemplated against the Company by any federal, state or local governmental agency.
Indivior (formerly RB Pharmaceuticals Ltd.) and Aquestive Therapeutics (formerly MonoSol Rx)
The following disclosure regarding the Company’s ongoing litigations with Aquestive Therapeutics, Inc. (formerly MonoSol Rx, “Aquestive”) and Indivior PLC (formerly RB Pharmaceuticals Limited, “Indivior”) is intended to provide some background and an update on the matter as per disclosure requirements of the SEC. Additional details regarding the past procedural history of the matter can be found in the Company’s previously filed periodic filings with the SEC.

Litigation related to BUNAVAIL
On October 29, 2013, Reckitt Benckiser, Inc., Indivior, and Aquestive (collectively, the “RB Plaintiffs”) filed an action against the Company relating to its BUNAVAIL product in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina (“EDNC”) for alleged patent infringement. BUNAVAIL is a drug approved for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence. The RB Plaintiffs claim that the formulation for BUNAVAIL, which has never been disclosed publicly, infringes its US Patent No. 8,475,832 (the “‘832 Patent”). On May 21, 2014, the Court granted the Company’s motion to dismiss.
On January 22, 2014, Aquestive initiated an inter partes review (“IPR”) on U.S. Patent No. 7,579,019, the (“‘019 Patent”). The PTAB upheld all claims of the Company’s ‘019 Patent in 2015 and this decision was not appealed by Aquestive.
On September 20, 2014, the Company proactively filed a declaratory judgment action in the United States District Court for the EDNC requesting the Court to make a determination that the Company’s BUNAVAIL product does not infringe the ‘832 Patent, US Patent No. 7,897,080 (the “‘080 Patent”) and US Patent No. 8,652,378 (the “‘378 Patent”). The Company invalidated the “‘080 Patent” in its entirety in an inter partes reexamination proceeding. The Company invalidated all relevant claims of the ‘832 Patent in an IPR proceeding. And, in an IPR proceeding for the ‘378 Patent, in its decision not to institute the IPR proceeding, the PTAB construed the claims of the ‘378 Patent narrowly. Shortly thereafter, by joint motion of the parties, the ‘378 Patent was subsequently removed from the action.
On June 6, 2016, in an unrelated case in which Indivior and Aquestive asserted the ‘832 Patent against other parties, the Delaware District Court entered an order invalidating other claims in the ‘832 Patent. Indivior and Aquestive did not appeal the

(U.S. DOLLARS, IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE AMOUNTS)
(Unaudited)
Delaware Court’s holding that other claims of the ‘832 Patent are invalid. On February 10, 2021, the parties in our EDNC declaratory judgment action filed a covenant by Indivior and Aquestive not to sue us for infringement of the ‘832 Patent. In view of that covenant and the prior invalidation of the ‘080 patent, we filed a notice of voluntary dismissal of the Company’s EDNC declaratory judgement action.
On September 22, 2014, the RB Plaintiffs filed an action against the Company (and the Company’s commercial partner) relating to the Company’s BUNAVAIL product in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey for alleged patent infringement. The RB Plaintiffs claim that BUNAVAIL, whose formulation and manufacturing processes have never been disclosed publicly, infringes its patent U.S. Patent No. 8,765,167 (the “‘167 Patent”). The Company believes this is an anticompetitive attempt by the RB Plaintiffs to distract the Company’s efforts from commercializing BUNAVAIL.
On December 12, 2014, the Company filed a motion to transfer the case from New Jersey to North Carolina and a motion to dismiss the case against its commercial partner. On October 28, 2014, the Company filed multiple IPR petitions on certain claims of the ‘167 Patent. The USPTO instituted three of the four IPR petitions. The PTAB upheld the claims and denied collateral estoppel applied to the PTAB decisions in March 2016. The Company appealed to Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The USPTO intervened with respect to whether collateral estoppel applied to the PTAB.
On June 19, 2018, the Company filed a motion to remand the case for further consideration by the PTAB in view of intervening authority. On July 31, 2018, the Federal Circuit vacated the decisions, and remanded the ‘167 Patent IPRs for further consideration on the merits.
On February 7, 2019, the PTAB issued three decisions on remand purporting to deny institution of the three previously instituted IPRs of the ‘167 patent. On March 11, 2019, the Company timely appealed the PTAB decisions on remand to U.S. Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit. On March 20, 2019, Aquestive and Indivior moved to dismiss the appeal, and the Company opposed that motion.
On August 29, 2019, a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit granted the motion and dismissed the Company’s appeal. On September 30, 2019, the Company filed a petition for an en banc rehearing of the order dismissing the Company’s appeal by the full Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
On January 13, 2020, by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied BDSI’s petition for en banc rehearing of the dismissal of BDSI’s appeal relating to inter partes review proceedings on the ’167 patent. On June 11, 2020, BDSI filed a petition for certiorari seeking U.S. Supreme Court review of the Federal Circuit’s decision. On October 5, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the Company’s petition for certiorari.
The Company strongly refutes as without merit the Plaintiffs’ assertion of patent infringement and will vigorously defend the lawsuit.

Litigation related to BELBUCA
On January 13, 2017, Aquestive filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging BELBUCA infringes the ‘167 Patent. In lieu of answering the complaint, the Company filed motions to dismiss the complaint and, in the alternative, to transfer the case to the EDNC. On July 25, 2017, the New Jersey Court administratively terminated the case pending the parties submission of a joint stipulation of transfer because the District of New Jersey was an inappropriate venue. This case was later transferred to the Delaware District Court. On October 31, 2017, the Company filed motions to dismiss the complaint and, in the alternative, to transfer the case to the EDNC. On October 16, 2018, denying the motion to dismiss as moot, the Delaware District Court granted the Company’s motion to transfer the case to the EDNC. On November 20, 2018, the Company moved the EDNC to dismiss the complaint for patent infringement for failure to state a claim for relief.
On August 6, 2019, the EDNC granted the Company’s motion to dismiss, and dismissed the complaint without prejudice. On or about November 11, 2019, Aquestive refiled a complaint in the EDNC against the Company alleging that BELBUCA infringes the ‘167 Patent. On January 13, 2020, in lieu of answering the complaint, we filed a motion to dismiss the complaint. After the two motions were denied, on April 16, 2020, we answered the complaint. Aquestive moved to dismiss our counter-claim of unenforceability, but the court denied that motion. The Company strongly refutes as without merit Aquestive’s assertion of patent infringement and will vigorously defend the lawsuit.

Teva Pharmaceuticals USA (formerly Actavis)
On February 8, 2016, the Company received a notice relating to a Paragraph IV certification from Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, or (formerly Actavis, “Teva”) seeking to find invalid three Orange Book listed patents relating specifically to BUNAVAIL. The Paragraph IV certification related to an ANDA filed by Teva with the FDA for a generic formulation of BUNAVAIL. The patents subject to Teva’s certification were the ‘019 Patent, U.S. Patent No. 8,147,866 (the “‘866 Patent”) and 8,703,177 (the “‘177 Patent”).
On March 18, 2016, the Company asserted three different patents against Teva, the ‘019 Patent, the ‘866 Patent, and the ‘177 Patent. Teva did not raise non-infringement positions about the ‘019 and the ‘866 Patents in its Paragraph IV certification. Teva did raise a non-infringement position on the ‘177 Patent but the Company asserted in its complaint that Teva infringed the ‘177 Patent either literally or under the doctrine of equivalents.
On December 20, 2016 the USPTO issued U.S. Patent No. 9,522,188 (the “‘188 Patent””), and this patent was properly listed in the Orange Book as covering the BUNAVAIL product. On February 23, 2017 Teva sent a Paragraph IV certification adding the 9,522,188 to its ANDA. An amended Complaint was filed, adding the ‘188 Patent to the litigation.
On January 31, 2017, the Company received a notice relating to a Paragraph IV certification from Teva relating to Teva’s ANDA on additional strengths of BUNAVAIL and on March 16, 2017, the Company brought suit against Teva and its parent company on these additional strengths. On June 20, 2017, the Court entered orders staying both BUNAVAIL suits at the request of the parties.
On May 23, 2017, the USPTO issued U.S. Patent 9,655,843 (the “‘843 Patent”) relating to the BEMA technology, and this patent was properly listed in the Orange Book as covering the BUNAVAIL product.
Finally, on October 12, 2017, the Company announced that it had entered into a settlement agreement with Teva that resolved the Company’s BUNAVAIL patent litigation against Teva pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. As part of the Settlement Agreement, which is subject to review by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, the Company has entered into a non-exclusive license agreement with Teva that permits Teva to first begin selling its generic version of BUNAVAIL in the U.S. on July 23, 2028 or earlier under certain circumstances. Other terms of the agreement are confidential.
The Company received notices regarding Paragraph IV certifications from Teva on November 8, 2016, November 10, 2016, and December 22, 2016, seeking to find invalid two Orange Book listed patents relating specifically to BELBUCA. The Paragraph IV certifications relate to three ANDAs filed by Teva with the FDA for a generic formulation of BELBUCA. The patents subject to Teva’s certification were the ‘019 Patent and the ‘866 Patent. The Company filed complaints in Delaware against Teva on December 22, 2016 and February 3, 2017 in which it asserted against Teva the ‘019 Patent and the ‘866 Patent. Teva did not contest infringement of the claims of the ‘019 Patent and did not contest infringement of the claims of the ‘866 Patent. The ‘019 Patent had already been the subject of an unrelated IPR before the USPTO under which the Company prevailed, and all claims of the ‘019 Patent survived. Aquestive’s request for rehearing of the final IPR decision regarding the ‘019 Patent was denied by the USPTO on December 19, 2016. Aquestive did not file a timely appeal at the Federal Circuit.
On May 23, 2017, the USPTO issued U.S. Patent 9,655,843 (the “‘843 Patent”) relating to the BEMA technology, and this patent was properly listed in the Orange Book as covering the BELBUCA product.
On August 28, 2017, the Court entered orders staying both BELBUCA suits at the request of the parties.
In February 2018, the Company announced that it had entered into a settlement agreement with Teva that resolved the Company’s BELBUCA patent litigation against Teva pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. As part of the settlement agreement, which is subject to review by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, the Company has granted Teva a non-exclusive license (for which the Company will receive no current or future payments) that permits Teva to first begin selling the generic version of the Company’s BELBUCA product in the U.S. on January 23, 2027 or earlier under certain circumstances (including, for example, upon (i) the delisting of the patents-in-suit from the U.S. FDA Orange Book, (ii) the granting of a license by us to a third party to launch another generic form of BELBUCA at a date prior to January 23, 2027, or (iii) the occurrence of certain conditions regarding BELBUCA market share). Other terms of the Agreement are confidential.

Alvogen
On September 7, 2018, the Company filed a complaint for patent infringement in Delaware against Alvogen Pb Research & Development LLC, Alvogen Malta Operations Ltd., Alvogen Pine Brook LLC, Alvogen, Incorporated, and Alvogen Group, Incorporated (collectively, “Alvogen”), asserting that Alvogen infringes the Company’s Orange Book listed patents for BELBUCA, including U.S. Patent Nos. 8,147,866 and 9,655,843, both expiring in July of 2027, and U.S. Patent No. 9,901,539, expiring in December of 2032. This complaint follows receipt by the Company on July 30, 2018 of a Paragraph IV Patent Certification from Alvogen stating that Alvogen had filed an ANDA with the FDA for a generic version of BELBUCA Buccal Film (75 mcg, 150 mcg, 300 mcg, 450 mcg, 600 mcg, 750 mcg and 900 mcg). Because the Company initiated a patent infringement suit to defend the patents identified in the Paragraph IV notice within 45 days after receipt of the Paragraph IV Certification, the FDA is prevented from approving the ANDA until the earlier of 30 months or a decision in the case that each of the patents is not infringed or invalid. Alvogen’s notice letter also does not provide any information on the timing or approval status of its ANDA.
In its Paragraph IV Certification, Alvogen does not contest infringement of at least several independent claims of each of the ’866, ’843, and ’539 patents. Rather, Alvogen advances only invalidly arguments for these independent claims. The Company believes that it will be able to prevail on its claims of infringement of these patents, particularly as Alvogen does not contest infringement of certain claims of each patent. Additionally, as the Company has done in the past, it intends to vigorously defend its intellectual property against assertions of invalidity. Each of the three patents carry a presumption of validity, which can only be overcome by clear and convincing evidence.
The Court scheduled a bench trial to commence on November 9, 2020 to adjudicate issues concerning the validity of the Orange Book patents listed for BELBUCA. On October 6, 2020, the Court rescheduled the bench trial with Alvogen to commence on March 1, 2021. A three day bench trial against Alvogen was conducted commencing on March 1, 2021. At the conclusion of trial, the Court ordered the parties to submit post-trial briefs. Post-trial briefing was completed on May 26, 2021. The Company subsequently moved the Court to strike (i.e., remove from the Court’s consideration) three patent invalidity defenses raised for the first time in Alvogen’s post-trial briefs and two documents improperly cited in Alvogen’s post-trial briefs. On June 28, 2021, the Court granted the Company’s motion to strike in its entirety. In addition, on June 28, 2021, the Court enjoined Alvogen from launching its generic product until the Court issues its final decision on the merits.
On September 21, 2021, the Company filed under seal a Motion for Order to Show Cause why Defendants Should not be Held in Contempt for Violating the Court Order of June 28, 2021 (the “Motion”). On June 28, 2021, citing the statute authorizing the Court to extend the 30-month stay under the Hatch-Waxman Act, the Court ordered Alvogen (as defined below) not to “launch” its generic product until it could reach a final decision on the merits in the case. In the Motion, the Company contends that Alvogen violated the order of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware commencing in or about August 2021 by, among other things, offering the generic product for sale through five compendia / price reporting services, including First Databank, Medi-Span (Wolters Kluwer), Red Book, Gold Standard and ScriptPro. As alleged in the Motion, after Alvogen’s product launch, certain payers began declining insurance coverage for the Company’s brand BELBUCA and directing use of Alvogen’s generic substitute and/or made it more difficult for patients to obtain insurance coverage for BELBUCA, and thereby damaged the Company. In addition to filing the Motion, the Company demanded that Alvogen withdraw its compendia listings. Alvogen claims to have withdrawn its compendia product listings on or about September 9, 2021.

The Company remains confident in the validity of its Orange Book patents listed for BELBUCA and will continue to vigorously defend its patent rights.

2018 Arkansas Opioid Litigation
On March 15, 2018, the State of Arkansas, and certain counties and cities in that State, filed an action in the Circuit Court of Arkansas, Crittenden County against multiple manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and prescribers of opioid analgesics, including the Company. The Company was served with the complaint on April 27, 2018. The complaint specifically alleged that it licensed its branded fentanyl buccal soluble film ONSOLIS to Collegium, and Collegium is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. ONSOLIS is not presently sold in the United States and the license agreement with Collegium was terminated prior to Collegium launching ONSOLIS in the United States. Therefore, on June 28, 2018, the Company moved to dismiss the case against it and most recently, on July 6, 2018, the plaintiffs filed a notice to voluntarily dismiss us from the Arkansas case, without prejudice.

Chemo Research, S.L
On March 1, 2019, the Company filed a complaint for patent infringement in Delaware against Chemo Research, S.L., Insud Pharma S.L., IntelGenx Corp., and IntelGenx Technologies Corp. (collectively, the “Chemo Defendants”), asserting that the Chemo Defendants infringe its Orange Book listed patents for BELBUCA, including U.S. Patent Nos. 8,147,866 and 9,655,843, both expiring in July of 2027, and U.S. Patent No. 9,901,539 expiring December of 2032. This complaint follows a receipt by the Company on January 31, 2019, of a Notice Letter from Chemo Research S.L. stating that it has filed with the FDA an ANDA containing a Paragraph IV Patent Certification, for a generic version of BELBUCA Buccal Film in strengths 75 mcg, 150 mcg, 300 mcg, 450 mcg, and 900 mcg. Because the Company initiated a patent infringement suit to defend the patents identified in the Notice Letter within 45 days after receipt, the FDA is prevented from approving the ANDA until the earlier of 30 months or a decision in the case that each of the patents is not infringed or invalid. Chemo Research S.L.’s Notice Letter also does not provide any information on the timing or approval status of its ANDA. On March 15, 2019, the Company filed a complaint against the Defendants in New Jersey asserting the same claims for patent infringement made in the Delaware lawsuit. On April 19, 2019, Defendants filed an answer to the Delaware complaint wherein they denied infringement of the ‘866, ‘843 and ‘539 patents and asserted counterclaims seeking declaratory relief concerning the alleged invalidity and non-infringement of such patents.
On April 25, 2019, the Company voluntarily dismissed the New Jersey lawsuit given Defendants’ consent to jurisdiction in Delaware.

The Court scheduled a bench trial to commence on November 9, 2020 (jointly with Alvogen) to adjudicate issues concerning the validity of the Orange Book patents listed for BELBUCA. On October 6, 2020, the Court rescheduled the bench trial with Chemo and Alvogen to adjudicate issues concerning the validity of the Orange Book patents listed for BELBUCA to commence on March 1, 2021. Chemo did not participate in the bench trial that commenced on March 1, 2021. Instead, on February 26, 2021, Chemo agreed to be bound by the decision of the Court with respect to the validity of the BEMA patents from the March 1, 2021 trial with Alvogen. The Court had scheduled a bench trial to commence on May 3, 2021 to adjudicate issues concerning the Chemo Defendants’ infringement of the Orange Book patents. On December 1, 2020, the Court rescheduled the bench trial to adjudicate issues concerning the Chemo Defendants’ infringement of the Orange Book patents to commence on November 15, 2021. On July 15, 2021, the Court rescheduled the bench trial to adjudicate issues concerning the Chemo Defendants’ infringement of the Orange Book patents to commence on April 25, 2022.
The Company believes that it will be able to prevail in this lawsuit. As it has done in the past, the Company intends to vigorously defend its intellectual property against assertions of invalidity.

Derivative Litigation
On July 2, 2018, the Company filed a Schedule 14A Proxy Statement (the “Proxy”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with its 2018 Annual Meeting. Proposals 1 and 2 of the Proxy sought stockholder approval to amend the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation by deleting Article TWELFTH of the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation in its entirety and replacing it with a new Article TWELFTH that, among other things (i) provided for the declassification of the Company’s Board in phases, with the full declassification to be achieved in 2020 (the “Declassification Amendment”) and (ii) changed the voting standard for the uncontested election of directors to the Board from a plurality standard to the majority of votes cast standard as set forth in the bylaws of the Company (the “Election Amendment” and together with the “Declassification Amendment”, the “Amendments”).
On August 2, 2018, the Company held the 2018 Annual Meeting, at which time the stockholders voted on the Amendments. Following the 2018 Annual Meeting, based on consultation with the Company’s advisors, the Company determined that the Amendments had been adopted by the requisite vote of stockholders and effected the Amendments by filing a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on August 6, 2018.
On September 11, 2019, two purported stockholders of the Company filed a putative class action against the Company and our directors in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, captioned Drachman v. BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc., et al., C.A. No. 2019-0728-AGB (Del. Ch.) (the “Complaint”). The Complaint alleged that the Amendments did not receive the requisite vote of stockholders at the 2018 Annual Meeting and asserted claims for violation of the Delaware General Corporation Law, breach of fiduciary duties, and declaratory judgment. The Complaint sought, inter alia, a declaration that the Amendments were not validly approved and invalidation of the Amendments, including altering the one-year terms of all directors duly elected at the 2018 and 2019 Annual Meetings to three-year terms. The Complaint also sought costs and

(Unaudited)
disbursements, including attorneys’ fees. On July 1, 2020, the Company filed their response to the Complaint and denied the claims asserted therein.
On November 5, 2019, the Board determined that ratifying the declassification of the Board and the change in the voting standard as set forth in the Amendments, as well as ratifying the filing and effectiveness of the Amendments, is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. The Board thus approved resolutions ratifying such acts and the filing and effectiveness of the Amendments under Section 204 of the Delaware General Corporation Law. On July 23, 2020, the stockholders of the Company approved the ratification of the declassification of the Board and the change in the voting standard as set forth in the Amendments as well as the filing and effectiveness of the Amendments. On July 23, 2020, the Company filed a Certificate of Validation with the Delaware Secretary of State.
On October 8, 2020, the Court entered an agreed-to order dismissing the plaintiffs’ claims for violation of the Delaware General Corporation Law. On October 13, 2020, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint, asserting individual, class and derivative claims for breach of fiduciary duties against our directors. On October 26, 2020, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss the amended complaint. On February 19, 2021, plaintiffs filed their opposition to the motion to dismiss. On March 8, 2021, the defendants filed a reply in further support of the motion to dismiss. The oral argument on defendants’ motion to dismiss took place on June 10, 2021 and, pursuant to a request from the Court, the parties are in the process of filing supplemental briefing. The defendants intend to continue to defend against the litigation vigorously.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. This discussion contains certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results and the timing of certain events could differ materially from those discussed in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including, but not limited to, those set forth herein and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report and in our other filings with the SEC. See “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” below.
Overview
Strategy
Our strategy is evolving with the establishment of our commercial footprint. We seek to continue to build a well-balanced, diversified, high-growth specialty pharmaceutical company focused on delivering innovative therapies for individuals living with serious and debilitating chronic conditions. Through our industry-leading commercialization infrastructure, we are executing the commercialization of our existing products. As part of our corporate growth strategy, we have licensed, and will continue to explore opportunities to acquire or license, additional products that meet the needs of patients living with debilitating chronic conditions. As we gain access to these drugs and technologies, we will employ our commercialization experience to bring them to the marketplace. With a strong commitment to patient access and a focused business-development approach for transformative acquisitions or licensing opportunities, we will leverage our experience and apply it to developing new partnerships that enable us to commercialize novel products that can change the lives of people suffering from debilitating chronic conditions.
Our commercial strategy for BELBUCA (buprenorphine buccal film) is to further drive continued adoption in the large long-acting opioid market based on its unique profile coupled with growing physician interest, policy tailwinds, and expanding payor access. We aim to leverage the specialized commercial infrastructure we established for BELBUCA as a vehicle to enable commercial growth in Symproic, a peripherally acting mu-opioid receptor antagonist, which we view as a complementary asset.

Recent Developments
In September 2021, we completed our acquisition of the U.S. and Canadian rights to ELYXYB™ (celecoxib oral solution), the only FDA-approved ready-to-use oral solution for the acute treatment of migraine, with or without aura, in adults. We believe the acquisition will allow us to expand into the migraine market and deepen our presence in neurology. We intend to launch ELYXYB in the first quarter of 2022.

Appointment of Chief Accounting Officer
On October 21, 2021, our Board of Directors announced that we had appointed John Golubieski as our Chief Accounting Officer, effective as of October 25, 2021. Mr. Golubieski will serve as Chief Accounting Officer until November 4, 2021, at which time he will resign from the position of Chief Accounting Officer and become Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Golubieski will also serve as the Company’s principal financial officer and principal accounting officer, effective as of November 4, 2021.
Results of Operations
Comparison of the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020
Product Sales. We recognized $41.1 million and $38.8 million in product sales during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in 2021 is principally due to BELBUCA and Symproic product sales which have been driven by increased paid prescriptions across all channels of business.
Product Royalty Revenues. During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, we recognized $0.02 million and $0.7 million in PAINKYL and BREAKYL product royalty revenue under our license agreements with TTY and Mylan, respectively.
Cost of Sales. We incurred $6.4 million and $5.4 million in cost of sales during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Cost of sales includes product cost, royalties paid, obsolescence reserves, depreciation, yield adjustments and quarterly minimum royalty payments to CDC IV, LLC (“CDC”).
22

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $25.5 million and $22.5 million, respectively. Selling, general and administrative costs include all costs not related to the manufacturing of product. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses during the three months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to increased sales and marketing expenses associated with BELBUCA and Symproic.
Interest expense, net . During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, we had net interest expense of $2.0 million, which consisted of $1.9 million of scheduled interest payments, and $0.1 million of amortization of discount and loan costs, respectively.
Comparison of the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020
Product Sales. We recognized $122.4 million and $112.9 million in product sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in 2021 is principally due to increased BELBUCA and Symproic product sales from higher patient utilization and the impact of price increases.

Product Royalty Revenues. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, we recognized $1.2 million and $1.4 million in PAINKYL and BREAKYL product royalty revenue under our license agreements with TTY and Mylan, respectively. Product royalty revenue related to PAINKYL and BREAKYL is primarily via government demand in the Ex-U.S. countries where the products are sold by TTY and Mylan, respectively.
Cost of Sales. We incurred $16.5 million and $16.4 million in cost of sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Cost of sales includes product cost, royalties paid, obsolescence reserves, depreciation, yield adjustments and quarterly minimum royalty payments to CDC. Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 includes $1.4 million for the recovery of certain costs associated with previously reserved inventory, which was offset by $0.7 million of obsolescence reserves. Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes a $0.3 million one-time depreciation charge due to BUNAVAIL equipment write-off.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $79.0 million and $77.4 million, respectively. Selling, general and administrative costs include commercialization costs for BELBUCA and Symproic, legal, accounting, salaries and wages, consulting and professional fees, travel costs, stock based compensation and amortization. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to an increase in legal spend and sales and marketing expenses in 2021, partially offset by the accelerated stock compensation and severance expense related to the departure of the Company's Chief Executive Officer in 2020.
Interest expense, net. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we had net interest expense of $6.0 million, which includes interest expense of $5.7 million and $0.3 million of amortization of discount and loan costs.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we had net interest expense of $5.0 million, which includes interest expense of $5.0 million and $0.2 million of amortization of discount and loan costs. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we also had interest income of $0.2 million.
Non-GAAP Financial Information:
We report our condensed consolidated financial results in accordance with GAAP; however, we believe that earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and other non-GAAP results should not be considered in isolation of or as an alternative for, earnings measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to measure the ongoing operating performance of our Company along with other metrics, and for planning and forecasting purposes. In addition, when evaluating non-GAAP results, we exclude certain items that are considered to be non-cash and if applicable, non-recurring, in nature.
EBITDA and Non-GAAP Income:
We have presented EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance and to develop operational goals for managing our business. We believe this financial measure helps identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that we exclude. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the expenses eliminated in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance. Accordingly, we believe that EBITDA provides
23

useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making.
EBITDA is not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of EBITDA rather than net income, which is the nearest GAAP equivalent. Some of these limitations are:
EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated or amortized may have to be replaced in the future, the cash requirements for which are not reflected in EBITDA;
EBITDA does not reflect provision for income taxes or the cash requirements to pay taxes; and
EBITDA excludes the impact of currency translation and net interest, including both interest expense and interest income.
Non-GAAP net income is an alternative view of our performance that we are providing because management believes this information enhances investors’ understanding of our results as it permits investors to better understand the ongoing operations of the business, the impact of any non-recurring one-time events, the cash results of the organization and is an additional measure used by management to assess performance.
Non-GAAP net income is not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP net income rather than net income, which is the nearest GAAP equivalent. Some of these limitations are:
The expenses and other items that we exclude in our calculation of non-GAAP net income may differ from the expenses and other items, if any, that other companies may exclude from non-GAAP net income when they report their operating results since non-GAAP income is not a measure determined in accordance with GAAP, and it has no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP;
We exclude stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP net income although (a) it has been, and will likely continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense for our business and an important part of our compensation strategy and (b) if we did not pay out a portion of our compensation in the form of stock-based compensation, the cash salary expense included in operating expenses would likely be higher, which would affect our cash position; and
We exclude amortization of intangible assets from non-GAAP net income due to the non-cash nature of this expense and although it has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a recurring expense for our business, these expenses do not affect our cash position.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Since inception, we have financed our operations principally from the sale of equity securities, proceeds from borrowings, convertible notes, and notes payable, funded research arrangements, revenue generated as a result of our worldwide license and development agreements and the commercialization of our BELBUCA, Symproic and BUNAVAIL products. We intend to finance our commercialization and working capital needs from existing cash, earnings from the commercialization of BELBUCA and Symproic, royalty revenue, existing and new licensing and commercial partnership agreements and, potentially, through the exercise of outstanding common stock options and warrants to purchase common stock. We expect to incur additional costs in preparation for the expected commercialization of ELYXYB projected for Q1 2022.
As of September 30, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $100.7 million. We generated $27.3 million of cash in operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 . We believe that we have sufficient cash, along with expected proceeds from sales of BELBUCA and Symproic, to manage the business as currently planned.
Additional capital may be required to support the continued commercialization of our BELBUCA and Symproic products, our commercial launch of ELYXYB, or other products which may be acquired or licensed by us, and for general working capital requirements. Based on agreements with our partners, the ability to scale up or reduce personnel and associated costs are factors considered throughout the product life cycle. Available resources may be consumed more rapidly than currently anticipated, potentially resulting in the need for additional funding.
Accordingly, it is possible that we may be required to raise additional capital, which may be available to us through a variety of sources, including:
public equity markets;
private equity financings;
commercialization agreements and collaborative arrangements;
grants and new license revenues;
bank loans;
25

equipment financing;
public or private debt; and
exercise of existing warrants and options.
Readers are cautioned that additional funding, capital or loans (including, without limitation, milestone or other payments from commercialization agreements) may be unavailable on favorable terms, if at all. If adequate funds are not available, we may be required to significantly reduce or refocus our operations or to obtain funds through arrangements that may require us to relinquish rights to certain technologies and drug formulations or potential markets, either of which could have a material adverse effect on us, our financial condition and our results of operations in 2021 and beyond. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the issuance of such securities would result in ownership dilution to existing stockholders.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of September 30, 2021, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements.
Effects of Inflation
We do not believe that inflation has had a material effect on our financial position or results of operations. However, there can be no assurance that our business will not be affected by inflation in the future.
Critical Accounting Policies
For information regarding our critical accounting policies and estimates, please refer to “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” contained in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
Interest rate risk
Our cash includes all fully liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. Because of the short-term maturities of our cash, we do not believe that an increase in market rates would have a significant impact on the realized value of our investments. We place our cash on deposit with financial institutions in the U.S. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation covers $0.25 million for substantially all depository accounts.
Foreign currency exchange risk
We currently have, and may in the future have increased, commercial, manufacturing and clinical agreements which are denominated in Euros or other foreign currencies. As a result, our financial results could be affected by factors such as a change in the foreign currency exchange rate between the U.S. dollar or Euro or other applicable currencies, or by weak economic conditions in Europe or elsewhere in the world. Such amounts are currently immaterial to our financial position or results of operations. We are not currently engaged in any foreign currency hedging activities.
Market Risk
We do not engage in speculative transactions nor do we hold or issue financial instruments for trading purposes. In connection with the recapitalization of our business, we have entered into a secured credit facility consisting of a term loan. Our term loan note bears interest which includes fluctuating interest rates based on LIBOR.
Additionally, LIBOR is to be phased out by June 23, 2023 and replaced. However, we will not be required to renegotiate our loan documents with our current lender.
Item 4.    Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report, our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive officer) and Executive Vice President, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer (our principal financial officer) (the “Certifying Officers”), conducted evaluations of our disclosure controls and procedures. As defined under Sections 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the term “disclosure controls and procedures” means controls and other procedures of an issuer that are designed to ensure that
26

information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. Disclosure controls and procedures include without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including the Certifying Officers, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
Readers are cautioned that our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error. An internal control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our control have been detected. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any control design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
Based on this evaluation, the Certifying Officers have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2021.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our third quarter of 2021 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
CAUTIONARY NOTE ON FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including in Item 2, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” (and the “Liquidity and Capital Resources” section thereof) and elsewhere may address or relate to future events and expectations and as such constitutes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties. Such statements may include, without limitation, statements with respect to our plans, objectives, projections, expectations and intentions and other statements identified by words such as “projects,” “may,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “will,” “potential,” “intends,” “plans” or similar expressions. These statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including those detailed in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Actual results, including, without limitation: (i) actual sales results (including the results of our continuing commercial efforts with BELBUCA and Symproic), (ii) the success of our planned launch of ELYXYB in the first quarter or 2022, (iii) the application and availability of corporate funds and our need for future funds, (iv) the FDA’s review of our products and any regulatory filings related thereto, or (v) the results of our ongoing intellectual property litigations and patent office proceedings, may differ materially from those set forth or implied in the forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements also involve other factors which may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to materially differ from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and to vary significantly from reporting period to reporting period. Such factors include, among others, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and results of operations, those listed under Item 1A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 11, 2021 and under Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other factors detailed from time to time in our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Although management believes that the assumptions made and expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, there is no assurance that the underlying assumptions will, in fact, prove to be correct or that actual future results will not be different from the expectations expressed in this Quarterly Report. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.
