Comparing fourth quarter year-over-year, it is notable that the Company’s fourth quarter 2018 financial results significantly increased by expediting shipments that were delayed from the third quarter of 2018 due to the then labor strike in our manufacturing plant

 

REHOVOT, Israel – February 12, 2020 -- Kamada Ltd. (NASDAQ: KMDA; TASE: KMDA.TA), a plasma-derived biopharmaceutical company, today announced financial results for the three months and 12 months ended December 31, 2019.

 

“We are very pleased with the overall performance delivered by our business throughout 2019,” said Amir London, Kamada’s Chief Executive Officer. “For full-year 2019, total revenues were $127.2 million, representing an 11% increase over full-year 2018. Total revenues for fiscal 2019 were in-line with 2019 expected revenues of between $126.5 million and $127.5 million. Based on our positive outlook for 2020, which includes anticipated increased sales of our Proprietary Products portfolio in international markets, growth in our Distribution Products segment in Israel, and sales growth of KEDRAB®,our anti-rabies IgG product,we anticipate total revenues to be in the range of $132 million to $137 million for fiscal 2020.

 

“Our overall gross profit for the fourth quarter and full-year 2019 was $12.1 million and $49.7 million, respectively,” continued Mr. London. “Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter and full-year 2019 was $6.8 million and $28.5 million, respectively. Our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $73.9 million as of December 31, 2019, an increase of $23.3 million compared to the end of 2018. In addition, the recent $25 million private placement investment made by the FIMI Opportunity Fund will support the continued execution of our business development strategy, which is focused on identifying new product opportunities for our manufacturing plant and seeking complementary products via licensing and acquisition.”

 

“Looking further ahead, while the planned transition of GLASSIA® manufacturing to Takeda during 2021 is expected to significantly decrease our revenue and profitability in 2021 and 2022, our organic growth, as well as the expectedfuture royalty payments from Takeda and our continued business development efforts, are expected to result in resumed revenue and profitability growth beginning in 2023,” continued Mr. London. “As recentlyannounced,we entered into two important transactions in the fourth quarter of 2019 which will contribute to our future growth. First, we executed an agreement with Alvotech to commercialize in Israel a portfolio of six biosimilar product candidates, upon receipt of regulatory approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health; the first of these products is expected to be launched in Israel in 2022. Second, we signed a binding term sheet for a 12-year contract manufacturing agreement with an undisclosed partner to manufacture an FDA approved and commercialized specialty hyper-immune globulin product. We intend to finalize this agreement during 2020 and anticipate commencing commercial manufacturing in early 2023. We expect the new product to contribute approximately $8 million to $10 million to our annual revenues, with an estimated gross margin similar to the average gross margins of our Proprietary Products segment.”

 

 

 

 

“Lastly, our clinical development pipeline continued to advance in the fourth quarter, as we randomized the first patient in our Phase 3 InnovAATe clinical trial in Europe. InnovAATe is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pivotal Phase 3 trial designed to assess the efficacy and safety of our inhaled AAT product in patients with AAT Deficiency and moderate lung disease that will be conducted in Europe and the U.S. In addition, during 2020, we expect to announce results froma proof-of-concept clinical trial of our IV-AATas preemptive therapy for patients at high-risk for the development of steroid-refractory acute GvHD, as well as top-line data from our phase 2 trial of IV-AAT for the prevention of lung transplant rejection,” concluded Mr. London.

As previously communicated, during 2020, Kamada expects a change in product sales mix,as well as reduced plant utilization, which are anticipated to result in an overall decrease in theProprietaryProducts segment’s full-year gross margins of approximately three to five percentage points as compared to 2019.
Operating expenses, including R&D, Sales & Marketing and G&A, and Other expenses, totaled $26.9 million in the year ended December 31, 2019, as compared to $22.2 million in the year ended December 31, 2018. This increase was primarily driven by increased R&D expenses specifically related to the initiation of the Company’s pivotal Phase 3 InnovAATe clinical trial. As previously communicated,due to the planned acceleration in 2020 of this clinical study, Kamada expects an approximately 20% to 25% increase in R&D expenses in 2020, as compared to 2019. Such increase is higher than previously reported due to the delay of certain activities originally planned for 2019 which are currently expected to take place in early 2020.
