Paratek Pharmaceuticals Announces First Quarter 2022 Revenue of $24.9 Million

-- NUZYRA® (omadacycline) Generated Net U.S. Sales of $19.9 Million from the Core Commercial Business, a 51% Increase over First Quarter 2021

-- Omadacycline Demonstrated Potent In Vitro Efficacy Against Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) in a Hollow Fiber Model

BOSTON, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRTK) today reported financial results and provided an update on corporate activities for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

"Our commercial execution continues to be strong, as demonstrated by the 51% year-over-year first quarter growth from the core NUZYRA commercial business. As the Omicron wave receded, we experienced accelerated product demand through the end of the first quarter that has continued into the second quarter. This growing momentum is being driven by improved access to physicians in the hospital and community settings, a resurgence of elective surgeries, and satisfaction of annual insurance deductible resets. Based on current performance, we are reiterating our full year 2022 guidance," said Evan Loh, M.D., chief executive officer at Paratek. "We remain excited about the progress of our NTM development program, including the hollow fiber efficacy data demonstrated in MAC, as it supports further study of NUZYRA in this important chronic, rare and life-threatening pulmonary disease."

Recent Highlights

  • Further Expansion of NUZYRA into Primary Care: Based on the continued success and progress of the company's community expansion, Paratek has begun to increase the number of sales representatives, medical science liaisons and territories covered in the primary care setting in 2022.

  • Significant Increase in NUZYRA Access for Patients: NUZYRA was recently added to three national Medicare formularies, which significantly increases the number of Medicare beneficiaries covered to nearly 60% nationwide. We now believe NUZYRA to be one of the most accessible branded, oral antibiotics with limited or no restrictions, across both commercially insured and Medicare patient populations.

  • NTM Rare Disease Development Program: Enrollment in a Phase 2b study is progressing as planned. This study explores the potential utility of omadacycline as a treatment for non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) pulmonary infections due to Mycobacterium abscessus, a rare disease with currently no approved therapies, that the company estimates represent a potential $1 billion addressable market opportunity in the United States. Important to NTM clinicians, an investigator-initiated study has demonstrated potent in vitro activity of omadacycline in a hollow fiber model against MAC, which represents a larger segment of NTM pulmonary disease.

  • Continued Progress of the Expanded BARDA Project BioShield Anthrax Program: The company continued to execute and deliver on its contract with BARDA to develop NUZYRA for both the treatment and post-exposure prophylaxis of pulmonary anthrax, a critical bioterrorism threat deemed important to national security by BARDA. These activities include advancing the U.S. onshoring of NUZYRA manufacturing, with commercial tablets being available by the end of 2022, and planning for animal pharmacokinetic and pilot efficacy studies to support the pulmonary anthrax development program.

Financial Results
Total revenue was $24.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, a 51% increase from $16.4 million for the same period in the prior year. Total revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was comprised of the following:

  • NUZYRA generated net U.S. sales of $19.9 million, a 51% increase from $13.2 million for the same period in the prior year.
  • Government contract service and grant revenue earned from cost reimbursement under the BARDA contract was $4.3 million, a 65% increase from $2.6 million for the same period in the prior year.
  • Collaboration and royalty revenue of $0.7 million, which primarily represents royalty revenues earned on sales of SEYSARA® (sarecycline) in the United States and the initiation of sales of NUZYRA in China.

Research and development (R&D) expenses were $7.5 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $5.5 million for same period in the prior year. The increase in R&D expenses was primarily due to costs for activities reimbursed under the BARDA contract and costs incurred for the Phase 2b NTM study.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $27.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $22.4 million for same period in the prior year. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily the result of compensation expense and costs incurred for the NUZYRA community expansion.

Paratek reported a net loss of $17.9 million, or $(0.35) per share, and $18.4 million, or $(0.39) per share, for the first quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Based upon the company's current operating plan, Paratek anticipates its existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $79.1 million as of March 31, 2022, provides for a cash runway through the end of 2023 with a pathway to cash flow break-even.
