-- NUZYRA® (omadacycline) Generated Net U.S. Sales of $25.1 Million from the Core Commercial Business, a 68% increase over Second Quarter 2021

-- Company Reiterates Full Year 2022 Financial Guidance

BOSTON, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRTK), today reported financial results and provided an update on corporate activities for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"The strong year-over-year growth of NUZYRA's core commercial business is a result of accelerating product demand and the disciplined execution of our community sales force expansion, which was initiated in the first quarter of 2021," said Evan Loh, M.D., chief executive officer at Paratek. "We expect demand trends for NUZYRA will continue through the end of the year. We are pleased with the improved access to physicians and the breadth of NUZYRA's commercial and government payer access, resulting in strong performance in both the hospital and community settings. Based on our results to date, we reiterate our full-year 2022 financial guidance."

Recent Highlights

  • Expansion of NUZYRA's Core Commercial Business in the Primary Care Setting: The second wave of expansion into the community, which includes an increase in the number of sales representatives, medical science liaisons, and territories covered in the primary care setting, is ongoing and anticipated to be completed by the end of 2022.

  • FDA Grants Fast Track Designation for the Treatment of Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM), including both Mycobacterium abscessus and Mycobacterium avium Complex: The Fast Track designation further validates the unmet need, allows for more frequent dialogue with the FDA and creates the opportunity to expedite development of NUZYRA as an option to help patients with NTM.

  • Progress of the BARDA Project BioShield Anthrax Program: The company has continued to execute on its contractual deliverables to develop NUZYRA through the animal rule for both the treatment and post-exposure prophylaxis of pulmonary anthrax. In addition, the onshoring of tablet manufacturing and validation are complete, with commercial availability of U.S.-based NUZYRA tablets anticipated in the second half of this year.

  • Expansion of NUZYRA Scientific Exchange to Primary Care Providers: A supplement to the Journal of Family Practice, focused on NUZYRA's role in the treatment of serious skin infections and pneumonia, was published in June and delivered to over 100,000 primary care and family medicine providers. The supplement, funded by Paratek, is also available electronically and can be accessed through the following link:

Financial Results
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $29.6 million compared to $19.6 million for the same period in the prior year when excluding the first procurement of NUZYRA under the BARDA contract of $37.9 million. Revenue earned in the second quarter of 2022 was comprised of $25.1 million in net U.S. sales from the NUZYRA core commercial business, a 68% increase from $14.9 million for the same period in the prior year, $4.0 million in revenue earned under the BARDA contract, and $0.6 million in royalty revenue.

Research and development (R&D) expenses were $7.6 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $6.5 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in R&D expenses was primarily the result of costs incurred for analytical testing and other non-clinical studies.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $30.3 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $27.1 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily the result of costs incurred for the NUZYRA community expansion.

Paratek reported a net loss of $17.6 million, or $(0.33) per share, and net income of $9.7 million, or $0.20 per share, for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Based upon the company's current operating plan, Paratek anticipates its existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $69.4 million as of June 30, 2022, provides for a cash runway through the end of 2023 with a pathway to cash flow break-even.
