  • Operating income for Q1 2021 increased to $10 million
  • Strong balance sheet with $49.7 million cash position

REHOVOT, Israel, May 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CollPlant (NASDAQ: CLGN), a regenerative and aesthetic medicine company, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 and provided an update on the Company's business developments.

CollPlant reported revenues of $14.5 million for the first quarter of 2021, a 2,281% increase from the $609,000 recorded in the first quarter of 2020 resulting primarily from the $14 million upfront payment received from Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, in connection with the development agreement entered into in February 2021. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2021 was $10.1 million compared to a comprehensive loss of $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. The Company ended the first quarter of 2021 with $49.7 million in cash and short term cash deposits.

First Quarter Corporate Highlights

  • Entered into strategic development agreement potentially worth up to $103 million in upfront and milestone payments, plus royalties and transfer pricing with Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, for rhCollagen in the use of dermal and soft tissue filler products. Allergan is the leading provider of dermal fillers, a market projected to reach $10 billion by 2026
  • Company's ordinary shares have been approved for uplisting to NASDAQ Global MarketsĀ® effective upon the open of trading on June 4, 2021 together with transition from trading of ADS to trading of ordinary shares
  • Raised $35 million through a registered direct offering priced at $17.50 per ADS
  • Hugh Evans, additive manufacturing executive, joined board of directors, increasing independent members to six

"We are off to an excellent start to 2021 with strong performance across our core regenerative and aesthetics areas," said Yehiel Tal, Chief Executive Officer of CollPlant. "Our high-value collaboration with Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, which came with substantial future potential milestone payments, continues as planned. We are creating a paradigm shift in medical aesthetics by combining our plant-derived recombinant human collagen (rhCollagen) with Allergan's proprietary technology creating regenerative dermal and soft tissue filer products."

"Development and commercialization are advancing for our rhCollagen and BioInks in 3D bioprinting and soft tissue repair. Preclinical studies for our 3D bioprinted breast implants show particular promise to transform the field of breast reconstruction and augmentation through regenerative medicine. While our Vergenix products continue to be sold in Europe, we are continuously growing our activities in the development of 3D bioprinted tissues and scaffolds for regenerative medicine applications."

First-Quarter Results

GAAP revenue for the first quarter increased by 2,281% to $14.5 million, compared to $609,000 in the first quarter of 2020. Revenue in 2021 included $14 million upfront payment received from AbbVie, according to the development agreement entered into between CollPlant and certain wholly owned subsidiaries of AbbVie (the "AbbVie Agreement").

On a GAAP basis, the gross margin ratio in the first quarter was 94%. The non-GAAP gross margin ratio was the same, 94%.

GAAP operating expenses for the first quarter increased to $3.6 million, compared to $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase is mainly derived from expenses, related to the entering into of the AbbVie Agreement and expenses from the registered direct offering, that resulted in $35 million of gross proceeds in February 2021. The increase comprised of (1) $1 million in management and employees compensation, (2) $200,000 in professional services expenses and (3) $362,000 in research and development activities including process development. On a non-GAAP basis, the operating expenses for the first quarter were $3.2 million, compared to $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP measures exclude certain non-cash expenses.

GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $10 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2020.

GAAP financial income, net for the first quarter was $98,000 compared to $106,000 in first quarter of 2020. Financial income is mostly related to exchange rate differences for operating lease liabilities.

GAAP net income for the first quarter was $10.1 million, or $1.20 basic earnings per share, compared to a comprehensive loss of $1.6 million, or $0.24 basic loss per share, for the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $10.5 million, or $1.24 basic earnings per share, compared to $1.4 million loss, or $0.24 basic loss per share, for the first quarter of 2020.

Cash provided by operating activities during the first quarter was $11 million compared to cash used in operating activities of $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase in cash from operating activities is mainly attributed to the $14 million upfront payment that was recognized as revenue from the AbbVie Agreement.

Cash used in investing activities during the first quarter accumulates to $179,000 compared to $85,000 in the first quarter of 2020. The increase is mainly attributed to investment in the Company's information technology systems.

Cash flows from financing activities during the first quarter accumulates to $35.5 million compared to $4.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase is mainly attributed to $32 million in net proceeds from the Company's registered direct offering in February 2021.

Use of Non-US GAAP ("non-GAAP")

Financial results for 2021 and 2020 are presented on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP basis. GAAP results were prepared in accordance with U.S GAAP and include all revenue and expenses recognized during the period. The release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures for operating costs and expenses, operating income, comprehensive income and basic and diluted comprehensive income per share that exclude the effects of non-cash expense for fair market value attributed to change in fair value of financial instruments, share-based compensation to employees, directors and consultants, and change in operating lease accounts. CollPlant's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance that enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate the Company's operating costs, comprehensive income and income per share, and to compare them to historical Company results.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when operating and evaluating the Company's business internally and therefore decided to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in this press release may be different from the measures used by other companies.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" later in this release. This accompanying table has more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.

The Company's consolidated financial results as of, and for the first three months ended March 31, 2021 are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP").
