Recent Highlights

“We enjoyed a third straight substantial increase in quarterly net revenue due to increased sales in the Middle East North Africa region. The increase was less than anticipated because of a delay in production of product packaging specific to the region. The product is being processed and we are optimistic that the sales will be realized in Q4,” stated Yutaka Niihara, M.D., M.P.H., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Emmaus.

Dr. Niihara added, “We also are pleased to see significant decrease in the loss from operations compared to the previous quarters.  We continue to discuss with stakeholder the possible restructuring or refinancing of our outstanding indebtedness and other current liabilities and will report on any transactions in this regard as they may occur.”

Financial and Operating Results

Net Revenues. Net revenues for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2022 were $4.9 million and $12.5 million, respectively, compared to $5.8 million and $17.6 million, respectively, for same periods in 2021.  The decrease was primarily attributable to lower bulk order purchases in 2022 compared to the same periods in 2021 due to overstocking by U.S. distributors in 2021. Net revenues in Q3 2022 increased by $0.7 million, or nearly 15%, from Q2 2022 net revenues of $4.3 million. Net revenues were positively affected by Q3 sales of Endari in the United Arab Emirates, where Endari was approved for marketing in May 2022, and, to a lesser extent, sales on an early access basis in the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The company had no similar sales in Q1 2022 or in 2021.

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022 were $5.1 million, compared with $5.4 million for the same period in 2021.  Of the decreased expenses in Q3, $0.2 million was attributable to a decrease in professional fees. Total operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were $15.7 million, compared with $17.4 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease was due to a $1.8 million decrease in research and development expenses related to $0.5 million in cash and $0.5 million in shares of the Company common stock paid and issued in 2021 to Kainos Medicine, Inc. (“Kainos”) to lead the clinical development of Kainos’s patented IRAK4 inhibitor. Total operating expenses in Q3 2022 decreased slightly from Q2 2022 due to $0.3 million decrease in selling expenses.

Loss From Operations. Loss from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $0.7 million, compared to $31,000 in the same period in 2021.  Operating loss for nine months ended September 30, 2022 increased to $5.2 million, compared to $1.2 million for the same period last year. The increased operating loss resulted from lower net revenues in 2022 compared to 2021. Loss from operations in Q3 2022 decreased by $0.8 million, or 54.2%, from $1.4 million in Q2 2022 as a result of the increase in net revenues in Q3.

Other Income (Expense). Other income increased by $3.1 million to $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to other expense of $2.9 million in the same period in 2021. Other income in Q3 included a $5.2 million decrease in change in fair value of conversion feature derivatives and a $1.2 million increase in foreign exchange loss as compared to Q3 2021.

Net Loss. For the quarter, the company realized a net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share based on approximately 49.6 million weighted average basic and diluted common shares. This compares to net loss of $3.2 million, or $0.06 per share based on approximately 49.3 million weighted average basic and diluted common shares for the third quarter of 2021. The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to the increase of $3.1 million in other income, partially offset by a decrease of $0.7 million in loss from operations discussed above.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the company incurred a net loss of $10.8 million, or $0.22 per share, based on approximately 49.4 million weighted average basic and diluted common shares. This compares to a net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.18 per share, based on approximately 49.2 million weighted average basic and diluted common shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Net loss for Q3 2022 decreased by $8.5 million, or 96%, from $8.9 million in Q2 2022 because of the increase of $7.5 million in other income and a decrease of $0.8 million in loss from operations, as discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources. At September 30, 2022, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.2 million, compared with $2.3 million at December 31, 2021. Cash and cash equivalents at September 30 included the net proceeds of $5.5 from related party loans. Based on the company’s cash and cash equivalents, anticipated future revenues, current liabilities and expected operating expenses, the company’s working capital is insufficient to meet its current liabilities and anticipated future working capital requirement for the next 12 months without restructuring or refinancing its existing indebtedness and other current liabilities and obtaining additional loans from related parties or debt or equity financing from third parties or curtailing certain operations or activities.
