Financial Results

Net AGGRASTAT® product sales for the three month period ended September 30, 2023, were $2.4 million compared to $3.0 million during the three month period ended September 30, 2022. The decrease in AGGRASTAT® revenues from the prior year when compared to the previous year is the result of a decrease in the volume of AGGRASTAT® sold, and competition from generic tirofiban.

ZYPITAMAG® contributed $398,000 of revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 compared to $434,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2022. The decrease in revenue through insured channels is primarily as a result of wholesaler returns and higher coverage gap payments to pharmacy benefit managers. This amount does not include sales of ZYPITAMAG® through the Marley Drug business.

The Marley Drug business contributed $2.2 million of revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 compared to $1.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2022. Marley Drug is a US pharmacy licensed to ship medications to all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. It serves thousands of customers and provides another channel for direct-to-consumer marketing, distribution and improved profit margin for ZYPITAMAG®. The increase in revenue is a result of increased sales through its e-commerce platform, including increased sales of ZYPITAMAG®.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 was $429,000 compared to $1.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2022. Decreased adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 resulted from lower net revenue, higher selling and R&D expenses, partially offset by lower cost of goods sold during the current quarter.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 was $84,000 or $0.01 per share compared to net income of $1.1 million or $0.11 per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2022. The main factor contributing to the decrease in net income recorded for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 was lower net revenue, higher selling and R&D expenses, partially offset by lower cost of goods sold during the current period.

At September 30, 2023, the Company had unrestricted cash totaling $5.6 million, an increase from $4.9 million of unrestricted cash held as of December 31, 2022. Cash flows from operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $1.2 million compared to cash flows from operating activities of $1.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

All amounts referenced herein are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Notes

  1. The Company defines EBITDA as "earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other income or expense" and Adjusted EBITDA as "EBITDA adjusted for non‑cash and non-recurring items". The terms "EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA", as it relates to the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 results prepared using IFRS, do not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
