2020 Second Quarter Financial and Corporate Highlights

  • Reports revenue of $3.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, an increase of 77% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2018, and an increase of 121% compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019; quarterly revenue results only represent partial contribution from the acquisition of the Cerecor assets closed on November 1, 2019;
  • Net loss of $0.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, a reduction of 95% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2018, and a reduction of 96% compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019; quarterly net income/(loss) results only represent partial contribution from the acquisition of the Cerecor assets closed on November 1, 2019;
  • Engaged health-care focused investment bank to secure near-term non-dilutive financing;
  • Announced positive clinical results from Natesto® spermatogenesis study, the first such study to demonstrate conclusively that a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) maintains key fertility parameters in hypogonadal men;
  • Closed on a $12.4 million prescription product portfolio purchase from Cerecor;
  • Hired Matthew Phillips as Executive Vice President of Commercial Operations. Mr. Phillips was Chief Commercial Officer at Cerecor and responsible for leading the growth of the prescription product portfolio that Aytu acquired, as well as at its predecessor company Zylera Pharmaceuticals;
  • Raised $10 million (approximately $9.3 million after fees and expenses) through a private placement with healthcare institutional investors - Armistice Capital and Altium Capital in October 2019;
  • Launched Natesto co-promote with Acerus Pharmaceuticals to expand promotional coverage and drive revenue growth and eliminated certain royalty and contingent consideration obligations, resulting in a $5.2 million unrealized gain;
  • Launched ZolpiMist co-promote with Validus Pharmaceuticals to expand promotion into the psychiatry market;
  • Natesto and Tuzistra added to two national PBM formularies representing over 36 million U.S. lives;
  • Ends the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $5.5 million, which does not include cash owed by Cerecor for receivables from post-acquisition sales of Commercial Portfolio products and a financing commitment from an institutional investor.

Commenting on the second quarter of 2020, Josh Disbrow, Chief Executive Officer of Aytu BioScience, stated, 'Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2019 was $3.2 million, which represents 121% growth over the three months ended September 30, 2019. Considering that the Cerecor Rx portfolio purchase didn't close until November, with the start of the integration beginning after that, this is a strong revenue number that we expect to grow with the product portfolio now integrated. We are not yet realizing the full benefit of the acquisition, so we look forward to our continued growth as we complete cross-training and maximize the multiple opportunities to gain synergy through our expanded Rx product portfolio.'
