NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harrow Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: HROW) today reported results for the second quarter 2019.

  • 115% year-over-year growth in gross revenue from chronic care formulations

  • Ten ImprimisRx ophthalmic formulations analytically tested to 12-month expiration dates
  • Twenty ophthalmic formulations currently in various stages of research and development
  • Improvements in production efficiency expected in second half of 2019 from investments made in automated and semi-automated equipment
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $245,000
  • Entered into an agreement to sell Harrow subsidiary, Park Compounding, for $8 million; sale will allow for increased operational focus on market-leading ImprimisRx ophthalmology franchise
  • Refinanced credit facility with SWK Holdings to reduce interest rate, extend interest-only period, and provide access, at Harrow’s discretion, to an additional $5 million of capital
  • Mayfield Pharmaceuticals launched with three women’s health drug candidates, including indications for bacterial vaginosis, dyspareunia, and interstitial cystitis, a collective potential $3 billion annual domestic market opportunity
  • Stowe Pharmaceuticals will seek FDA approval for its lead drug candidate STE-006, which is based on a recently acquired new chemical entity (NCE) we believe could treat potentially blinding bacterial, fungal and viral infections in the eye, a $2+ billion annual domestic market opportunity

Mark L. Baum, CEO of Harrow Health, commented, “Without completing a dilutive equity financing in over two years, we are continuing to march towards our medium-term target of $100 million in annual revenues which, we believe, assuming normalized expenses, could produce significant adjusted earnings for shareholders in excess of $1 a share in the coming years.  Our revenue, earnings, and gross margin targets are supported by the performance of our ImprimisRx business and positive macro trend tailwinds in the ophthalmology pharmaceutical business.  ImprimisRx’s continued impressive year-over-year growth is being fueled by new product innovation, new chronic care prescriptions, a growing bank of refill orders and, importantly, a better-than-expected reception so far for the new products rolled out in May.  We believe the improved terms in our recent amendment to our debt facility with SWK exemplify the strength of the Harrow model in general and, more specifically, the prospects for the ImprimisRx business, including the quality of its operations and facilities.”  

Mr. Baum concluded, “We’re entering a period where our deconsolidated spin-offs, including Eton, Surface and Melt, are expected to produce numerous value creation catalysts.  Additionally, our subsidiaries, Mayfield, Stowe and Radley are advancing towards deconsolidating transactions. Recently, Mayfield Pharmaceuticals announced its launch and will have three drug candidates pursuing a collective $3 billion market opportunity.  In addition, Stowe Pharmaceuticals was just recently announced as our newest drug development subsidiary, it has the potential to be a game changer in the treatment of bacterial, fungal, and viral infections in the eye and ear.  Anti-bacterial resistant pathogens are an increasing concern for doctors and patients, STE-006 has shown tremendous potential in pre-clinical studies and could be a $2 billion market opportunity.”

Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to the company's results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), which are presented and discussed above, management also utilizes adjusted EBITDA, an unaudited financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the company's financial results and performance and to plan and forecast future periods. Adjusted EBITDA is considered a "non-GAAP" financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the SEC.  Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting its business.  Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the company's performance because (i) it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making; (ii) it excludes the impact of non-cash or, when specified, non-recurring items that are not directly attributable to the company's core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the company's core operating performance; and (iii) it is used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help analyze the company's results.  However, adjusted EBITDA and any other non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures used by the company and the manner in which they are calculated may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures or the calculations of the same non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the company's competitors.

The company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding the effects of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, other income (expense) and, if any and when specified, other non-recurring income or expense items.  The company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to adjusted EBITDA is net loss. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations and should not be considered as an alternative to gross profit or net loss as a measure of operating performance or to net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of ability to meet cash needs.

The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure, net loss, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and for the same period in 2018 (in thousands):

     
  For the three months ended
