Neos Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

08/10/2020 at 7:00 AM EDT
– Company to host conference call today at 8:30 a.m. EDT –

DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEOS), a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company developing and manufacturing central nervous system-focused products, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020 and provided a business update.

“We believe the future potential of our ADHD portfolio is strong following our recent sales force re-alignment and the continued growth of our best-in-class Neos RxConnect platform,” said Jerry McLaughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While our second quarter sales were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which was manifested in the onset of an early summer decline in the seasonal ADHD market and driven by the pediatric / adolescent segment, we are now seeing preliminary evidence that the market is returning to growth and our Neos ADHD prescriptions are responding accordingly as we enter the back-to-school season. We believe that as students return to a rigorous academic curriculum regardless of their new learning environment, and as adults with ADHD seek to maintain work life balance despite continued disruptions in their daily routines, we will achieve growth for our ADHD franchise in the months and years ahead.”  

ADHD Commercial Portfolio

  • Improvement in cash contribution from ADHD portfolio: Neos reported a 5.8% growth to $128 in blended net revenue per pack for its two core commercial ADHD products, Adzenys XR-ODT® and Cotempla XR-ODT®, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.
     
  • ADHD market shows signs of rebounding after impact from COVID-19: During the second quarter of 2020, the ADHD market was impacted by COVID-19 with a believed “early summer” seasonal effect. This effect was primarily driven by a rapid decline in pediatric / adolescent prescriptions in April and May compared to the same months in 2019. However, for June 2020, the overall ADHD market rebounded to levels greater than June of 2019.   
     
  • Salesforce returned to full operations in June 2020: As of June 1, 2020, the Company’s ADHD salesforce had returned to the field, utilizing a blend of face-to-face and virtual sales interactions with customers. As of late June, roughly 70% of prescriber interactions were in person, as many physician offices returned to pre-COVID levels of operations.
     
  • Continued expansion of Neos RxConnect patient support program: During the second quarter of 2020, the Company continued to expand the number of participating pharmacies in the Neos RxConnect network. The Neos RxConnect patient support program is intended to simplify the process of gaining access to Neos ADHD medicines, for both patients and healthcare providers, by providing affordable and predicable coverage to commercially insured patients while also eliminating many of the hassles that may deter healthcare providers from prescribing medications they consider most appropriate for their patients.

Development Pipeline: NT0502

  • Phase 1 single ascending and multiple ascending dose trial to begin in fourth quarter of 2020: The Company plans to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial for NT0502, for the treatment of sialorrhea in patients with neurological conditions, in the fourth quarter of 2020. The multi-part study will include single ascending and multiple ascending dose cohorts.
