Management Commentary

Stephen T. Wills, Executive Chairman and Interim Principal Executive Officer of Derma Sciences, commented, "The third quarter was an exceptionally busy and productive time for Derma Sciences. We sold our lower-margin FAD business, which provided upfront cash of $9.7 million, to invest in our AWC growth strategy. In acquiring BioD we became a leading manufacturer and marketer of birth tissue products for use in surgical procedures and wound care. Our gross profit expanded substantially, and our DS AWC business unit contribution improved from a loss of $2.5 million in the third quarter of 2015 to a loss of $0.3 million this quarter. Although one-time expenses of $3.1 million related to the BioD acquisition negatively impacted our quarterly results, we continue to expect positive EBITDA and positive cash flow from operations for the fourth quarter of 2016."

Commenting on AWC activities and results, Russell Olsen, president of AWC said, "Opportunities for cross selling DS AWC products and SS AWC products exist, and this effort has begun by bringing select wound care products to the surgical market. We are in the process of reviewing our indirect and direct sales force size and territories, and are taking steps to increase headcount where appropriate and in areas where the investment will quickly have a positive impact on earnings. I would like to share a few specific examples of our success through the first nine months of the year, compared to the same period in 2015. AMNIOEXCEL sales are up 33% in the U.S., TCC-EZ is enjoying an 18% growth in the U.S. and MEDIHONEY is up 13% in Europe. In addition, Surgical Solutions sales have experienced significant growth of 38%, driven primarily in the areas of sports medicine and ophthalmology."

Mr. Wills added, "Overall we are pleased with our operational and financial performance. Although our 2016 net sales growth target is off a few percentage points, we are significantly ahead on our operating loss target reduction with the operating loss from continuing operations, excluding acquisition-related expenses, narrowing to $2.7 million from a loss of $5.1 million a year ago. We budgeted a cash burn for the first nine months of the year to be approximately $6.5 million, and excluding acquisition and divestiture related activity, the cash burn was less than $5 million. Now our focus is on completing the integration of the SS AWC business into Derma Sciences, increasing cross-selling opportunities, and continuing to increase operating and gross margins. We are also focused on product and clinical-based data development to lay the foundation for greater topline growth in 2017 while still meeting our objectives for positive EBITDA and positive operating cash flow."

Financial Results

Net sales for the third quarter of 2016 were $21.8 million, up 22.6% from $17.8 million for the third quarter of 2015. This included AWC sales of $15.8 million, up 39.1% from $11.3 million in the prior-year quarter, and TWC sales of $6.0 million, down 6.5% from $6.4 million in the prior-year quarter. The AWC sales increase includes $4.0 million from SS AWC sales for approximately two months of the quarter together with the DS AWC sales that were led by MEDIHONEY, TCC-EZ and AMNIO products in the U.S., and MEDIHONEY in regions outside North America. The decrease in TWC sales was driven by lower traditional and private-label retail demand in the U.S.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2016 was $10.7 million, up 46.8% from $7.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. The increase in gross profit was driven by the sale of higher-margin SS AWC products, higher sales of DS AWC products and lower sales of lower-margin TWC products. Gross margin percentage was 49.1%, for the third quarter of 2016, compared with 41.0% in the prior year. The increase in gross margin percentage was principally due to favorable product sales mix, partially offset by higher manufacturing costs.

Operating expense for the third quarter of 2016 was $16.5 million, compared with $12.3 million for the third quarter of 2015. The increase was principally due to the addition of $3.4 million in SS AWC operating expenses, $3.1 million in transaction-related expenses and $0.8 million of one-time severance expense, partially offset by cost-reduction initiatives.

Net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2016 was $4.6 million, or $0.17 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2015 of $4.7 million, or $0.18 per share.

Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $55.5 million, compared with $51.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. AWC net sales were $37.4 million, up 18.9% from $31.4 million in the prior-year period. TWC net sales were $18.2 million, down 9.0% from $20.0 million in the prior-year period. Operating expense decreased $3.1 million, or 7.9%, to $35.7 million in the first nine months of 2016 from $38.8 million in the first nine months of 2015, reflecting the Company's restructuring initiatives and lower research and development expenses of approximately of $10.6 million, partially offset by $7.5 million of SS AWC operating, transaction and other related expenses. This contributed to the improvement in operating loss to $10.9 million in the first nine months of 2016 from $17.7 million in the first nine months of 2015.

The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 of $5.0 million, or $0.19 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $17.1 million, or $0.66 per share, for the same period in 2015. The Company reported net income from discontinued operations of $3.8 million, or $0.15 per share, related to the FAD divestiture for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and a loss of $11.8 million, or $0.46 per share for the discontinuation of FAD and its DSC127 pharmaceutical development program for the same period in 2015. The Company reported a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared with a net loss of $28.9 million, or $1.12 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

As of September 30, 2016, Derma Sciences had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $41.0 million, compared with $40.8 million as of December 31, 2015. In addition, the Company had a $15.4 million investment in equity securities as of September 30, 2016, compared with $16.1 million as of December 31, 2015.

The Company's financial results reflect the presentation of FAD as a discontinued operation.
