MannKind Corporation Reports 2016 Third Quarter Financial Results

VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) (TASE:MNKD) today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recognized $161.8 million in net revenue from our collaboration with Sanofi. This amount relates to activities from prior periods previously deferred. In the third quarter of 2016, due to the termination of the Sanofi license agreement, the remaining costs under the Sanofi License Agreement were fixed or determinable and future activity under the Sanofi Supply Agreement was reasonably estimable, which allowed for the recognition of revenue from collaboration this quarter. There are no future obligations to Sanofi.  The amount of net revenue - collaboration recognized in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 consists of the upfront payment of $150.0 million and milestone payments of $50.0 million, net of $64.8 million of net loss share with Sanofi, as well as $17.4 million in sales of Afrezza and $9.2 million in sales of raw insulin, both to Sanofi.

We began distributing MannKind branded Afrezza products to wholesalers during the week of July 25, 2016.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, net revenue from commercial product sales represents $0.6 million of net sales of Afrezza dispensed to patients.  In addition, as of September 30, 2016, we recorded $2.0 million in deferred revenue, of which $1.6 million is net of estimated gross-to-net adjustments and represents product shipped to our third-party logistics provider and wholesale distributors, but not dispensed to patients as of that date.  Estimated gross-to-net adjustments for the third quarter of 2016 were approximately 32%, which includes estimates of wholesaler distribution and logistics fees, prompt pay discounts, estimated government rebates and patient discount programs.  Deferred revenue also includes $0.4 million that we have received for the sale of surplus raw materials to a third party, where delivery was made after September 30, 2016.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recognized $22.7 million of product costs - collaboration which was previously deferred and consisted of $13.5 million in Afrezza manufacturing costs for product sold to Sanofi and $9.2 million for a change in estimate in our recognized loss on purchase commitments related to the sale of raw insulin to Sanofi.

Cost of goods sold was approximately $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, a decrease of 47% from the third quarter of 2015.  This decrease is primarily due to a decrease in under-absorbed labor and overhead due to decreased depreciation as a result of the fixed asset impairment write-down in 2015 and decreased salaries resulting from the reduction in force in 2015 as well as a gain on purchase commitments for other material related to a change in estimate associated with the renegotiation of certain agreements and a reduction in inventory write-offs offset by a foreign currency exchange loss on recognized loss on purchase commitments for insulin purchases.  Cost of goods sold was $15.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, and included under-absorbed labor and overhead costs expensed in the period, and a foreign currency exchange loss on the recognized loss on purchase commitments for insulin offset by a gain on purchase commitments for other materials related to a change in estimate associated with the renegotiation of certain agreements. Cost of goods sold for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 also includes $0.1 million attributable to commercial product sales, which consists of the manufacturing costs for Afrezza dispensed to patients. This $0.1 million attributable to commercial product sales only includes conversion cost as we wrote off the cost of our raw materials held in inventory at the end of 2015.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company did not recognize any net revenue or product costs - collaboration or net revenue - commercial product sales.

Research and development expenses were $3.9 million for the third quarter of 2016, a decrease of 38% from the third quarter of 2015, primarily due to expense associated with the 2015 reduction in force exceeding the expense associated with the 2016 reduction in force along with curtailing certain research and development projects and facility spending offset by an increase in development work done for third parties.  Research and development expenses were $13.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, a decrease of 43% compared to the same period in 2015, primarily due to expense associated with the 2015 reduction in force exceeding the expense associated with the 2016 reduction in force along with a decrease in research and development projects and facility spending offset by an increase in development work done for third parties and tax credits.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were approximately $13.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 14% from the third quarter of 2015, mainly due to increased costs for the support of sales and marketing of Afrezza offset by a decrease in general and administrative expenses due to the reduction in force in 2015.  Selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $31.6 million, a decrease of 3% from the same period in 2015, primarily due to the 2015 reduction in force, lower communication, facility and insurance costs and lower stock-based compensation expense in general and administrative expenses offset by increased costs for the support of sales and marketing of Afrezza in selling expenses.

Included in the three months ended September 30, 2016 is a $13.2 million benefit from a decrease in the fair value of the warrant liability from June 30, 2016.  Included in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 is a $7.9 million benefit from a decrease in the fair value of the warrant liability from May 12, 2016, the date the warrants were issued.

The net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $126.5 million and $71.7 million, or basic net income of $0.26 and $0.16 per share, based on 478.1 and 454.2 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared with a net loss of $31.9 million and $91.4 million for the same periods in 2015, or basic net loss of $0.08 and $0.23 per share, based on 405.2 and 401.7 million weighted average shares outstanding. The number of common shares outstanding at September 30, 2016 was 478.4 million.

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2016 were $35.5 million, compared to $59.1 million at December 31, 2015. Currently, $30.1 million remains available for borrowing under the amended loan arrangement with The Mann Group along with $50.0 million available under the at-the-market facility.
