Adamas Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

August 4, 2016 at 4:05 PM EDT

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADMS) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2016. 

"We are pleased with the progress made during the quarter, especially in our ADS-5102 program.  We announced compelling clinical data in both the Phase 3 program in levodopa-induced dyskinesia, or LID, associated with Parkinson's disease and the Phase 2 study in walking impairment associated with multiple sclerosis, or MS," stated Gregory T. Went, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  "We are on track to submit a new drug application to the FDA in support of ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID this year, with the aim of making ADS-5102 the first drug available for patients and caregivers facing this often debilitating and socially isolating movement disorder."

Dr. Went continued, "We were very encouraged by the statistically significant placebo-adjusted improvement in walking speed we saw in our Phase 2 trial of ADS-5102 in MS patients—an improvement, which if repeated in subsequent clinical trials, could represent a significantly differentiated medicine over currently available treatment options.  We look forward to meeting with the FDA to discuss the clinical development path forward for this program."

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, Adamas reported a net loss of $16.9 million, or $0.78 per share, basic and diluted, compared with a net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, of $14.1 million, or $0.78 per share, basic and diluted.  Research and development expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, were $9.2 million, including $0.7 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $8.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, which also included $0.7 million in stock-based compensation expense.  Research and development expenses for the current quarter included increased investment to support the preparation of the new drug application (NDA) for ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID, offset in part by the conclusion of two Phase 3 clinical trials.  General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, were $8.1 million, including $1.9 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $5.8 million for the same quarter in the prior year, which included $1.7 million in stock-based compensation expense.  The increase in general and administrative expenses was due primarily to costs associated with establishing commercial capabilities in anticipation of the commercial launch of ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID associated with Parkinson's disease, pending regulatory approval.

Six-month 2016 Financial Results

Adamas reported a net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016, of $30.7 million, or $1.43 per share, basic and diluted, compared with a net loss for the same period in 2015 of $26.3 million, or $1.47 per share, basic and diluted.  Research and development expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016, were $16.7 million, including $1.4 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $16.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015, which included $1.5 million in stock-based compensation expense.  General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016, were $14.7 million, including $3.8 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $10.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015, which included $3.1 million in stock-based compensation expense.

Adamas ended the quarter with $158.0 million of cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities, a reduction of $11.2 million from the end of the prior quarter.
