BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NASDAQ: TXMD), an innovative, leading women’s healthcare company, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Our organization made significant progress in the second quarter while navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our business,” said Robert G. Finizio, Chief Executive Officer of TherapeuticsMD. “We delivered a strong quarter of operational execution during very unique circumstances, quickly reducing our operating expenses, reorienting our sales force, and addressing our credit facility future minimum net revenue covenants. These strategic and operational changes and our reshaped Board of Directors and management team are focused on driving revenue and achieving our goal of reaching EBITDA break even in 2021, which we believe will result in long-term shareholder value.”

Recent Updates

  • Prescription volume for ANNOVERA (segesterone acetate and ethinyl estradiol vaginal system) for the eight weeks ended July 24, 2020 increased approximately 100% over the previous eight weeks (the time period most heavily impacted by COVID-19). ANNOVERA current prescription trend exceeds the product’s pre-COVID-19 launch trajectory.
  • The Company initiated the direct-to-consumer marketing campaign for ANNOVERA on July 1, 2020. Digital metrics show that the “Unapologetically ANNOVERA” campaign has quickly gained visibility resulting in over 100 million impressions and 3 million unique views since launch.
  • The Company is working with the Department of Defense, public health organizations, and telehealth platforms to expand access to women and contribute to the Company’s growth in the second half of the year.
  • As of July 1, 2020, ANNOVERA achieved 79% commercial coverage and 46% Medicaid coverage. The vast majority of patients are covered without a copay.
  • IMVEXXY (estradiol vaginal inserts) new prescriptions for the eight weeks ended July 24, 2020 increased 33% over the previous eight weeks ended May 29, 2020 (the time period most heavily impacted by COVID-19). IMVEXXY continues to experience strong refill rates. These trends should positively impact total prescriptions going forward.
  • The Company plans to launch the consumer marketing campaign for IMVEXXY during August 2020.
  • IMVEXXY’s commercial market access is 72% unrestricted commercial coverage, including all of the top ten commercial payors of VVA products. The Company added Wellcare as a Medicare Part D payor.
  • As of July 1, 2020, BIJUVA® (estradiol and progesterone) capsules commercial market access increased to 73% unrestricted commercial coverage with nine of the top ten commercial payors.

Sixth Street Update

  • The Company worked with Sixth Street Partners (“Sixth Street”) to adjust the total minimum net revenue covenant in its financing agreement to reflect the impact of COVID-19. The covenants begin with the results for the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • The total minimum net revenue requirement for ANNOVERA, IMVEXXY, and BIJUVA was adjusted to $20 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. In 2021, the minimum net revenue covenant will be $25 million, $37.5 million, $47.5 million, and $57.5 million for the first, second, third, and fourth quarters, respectively. Given the Company’s current rate of growth, the Company believes it is well positioned to meet or exceed these minimum covenants.
  • The Company and Sixth Street are not moving forward with the undrawn $50 million tranche under the financing agreement, which was designed to be drawn following the successful full commercial launch of ANNOVERA in the second quarter, due to the pause in the launch timing caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. There continues to be an active dialogue with Sixth Street regarding potential additional financing.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Net product revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $10.7 million.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the Company’s product revenue early in the second quarter of 2020. The Company’s products returned to growth mid to late quarter. Notwithstanding COVID-19, the Company expects continued growth in the second half of 2020.
  • In the second quarter 2020, ANNOVERA net revenue was $1.8 million. Approximately 2,400 ANNOVERA prescriptions were dispensed. Net revenue per unit, calculated from sales to wholesalers and pharmacies, was $1,332.
  • In the second quarter 2020, IMVEXXY net revenue was $5.1 million. Approximately 118,000 IMVEXXY prescriptions were dispensed. Net revenue per unit was $41. Strong IMVEXXY refill rates continued with patients adhering to therapy.
  • In the second quarter 2020, BIJUVA net revenue was $1.4 million. Approximately 27,600 BIJUVA prescriptions were dispensed. Net revenue per unit was $45 for the second quarter of 2020.

Net product revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic across all of our products.

Cost of Goods Sold/Gross Margin

Cost of goods sold increased $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2020, as the result of a non-cash write-off of $1.9 million primarily related to BIJUVA inventory obsolescence, partially offset by the impact of an overall decline in unit sales. The charge is the result of the Company’s reprioritization of selling resources to ANNOVERA and IMVEXXY along with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on sales forecasts of BIJUVA for future quarters. This charge caused gross margin percentage to decline from 78% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 to 59% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Expense, EPS and Related Information

Total operating expenses decreased by $9.2 million to $51.3 million for the second quarter of 2020 as compared to $60.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily a result of the Company’s cost containment and spend-rebalancing efforts to reduce overall spend in the remaining quarters of the 2020 fiscal year. For the remainder of 2020, spend will focus on delivering the necessary resources to support the launch of ANNOVERA, continued ramp-up of IMVEXXY, and ongoing brand management of BIJUVA. The second quarter of 2020 was impacted by $3.9 million in charges related to product samples expense as a result of the Company’s decision to reduce sampling of BIJUVA.

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 decreased to $52.0 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, compared with $56.8 million, or $0.21 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Net loss per share for the second quarter of 2020 was impacted by inventory and sample expense charges related primarily to BIJUVA of $0.02 per basic and diluted share.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2020, the Company’s cash on hand totaled $113.8 million, compared with $170.1 million on March 31, 2020. The decline in cash was due primarily to the net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, less certain non-cash items, as well as the timing of advertising, marketing, and social media campaigns for ANNOVERA that were incurred at the end of the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and funded early in the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Total outstanding debt, net of issuance costs, was $243.8 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $243.4 million as of March 31, 2020. The change is due to the amortization of debt discount of $400,000.

Sixth Street Additional Information

  • In connection with the adjustment to the Sixth Street total minimum net revenue covenant and in lieu of a cash amendment fee, the Company issued to the Sixth Street lenders warrants to purchase an aggregate of approximately 4.75 million shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $1.58 per share and a ten year term. The warrants are unregistered, do not have registration rights, and do not have anti-dilution protection, other than for customary stock splits and similar transactions.
  • The total minimum net revenue requirement for ANNOVERA, IMVEXXY, and BIJUVA in 2022 will be $65 million, $75 million, $85 million, and $95 million for the first, second, third, and fourth quarters, respectively, and will remain at $95 million for subsequent quarters.
