Wednesday, August 24, 2022

WINNIPEG, MB, Aug. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - Medicure Inc. ("Medicure" or the "Company") (TSXV: MPH) (OTC: MCUJF), a company focused on the development and commercialization of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products for patients and prescribers in the United States market, today reported its results from operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Quarter Ended June 30, 2022 Highlights:

  • Recorded total net revenue of $5.7 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $5.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and;
  • Recorded total net revenue from the sale of AGGRASTAT® of $2.9 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $2.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and;
  • Recorded total net revenue from the sale of ZYPITAMAG® of $1.1 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $403,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and;
  • Recorded total net revenue from the Marley Drug® business of $1.8 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and;
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA1) for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was negative $210,000 compared to adjusted EBITDA of $158,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and;
  • Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $683,000 compared to a net loss of $639,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increased investment in research in development of $1.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $705,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Financial Results

The increase in AGGRASTAT® revenues when compared to the same period in the previous year, as described above, is the result of increases in the units of AGGRASTAT® sold.

ZYPITAMAG® contributed $1.1 million of revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $403,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The increase in revenue is primarily a result of increased sales to insured customers and improved patient access and fill rate through Medicure's subsidiary, Marley Drug, which also resulted in reduced fees to wholesalers and pharmacy benefit managers.

The Marley Drug business contributed $1.8 million of revenue during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in revenue is primarily due to increased competition for filling generic medications. Marley Drug is a US pharmacy licensed to ship medications to all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. It serves thousands of customers and has proven success in marketing based on accessible pricing of generic drugs and a focus on cash price without use of insurance. It provides another channel for direct-to-consumer marketing, distribution and improved profit margin for ZYPITAMAG.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was negative $210,000 compared to $158,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2022 is the result of higher research and development costs and general and administrative costs related to improvements in the Marley Drug E-Commerce platform, partially offset by decreased selling expenses and higher revenues when compared to the same period in 2021.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $683,000 or $0.06 per share compared to net loss of $639,000 or $0.06 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The main factors contributing to the decrease in net income recorded for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were higher research and development costs and general and administrative costs related to improvements in the Marley Drug E-Commerce platform, partially offset by decreased selling expenses and higher revenues when compared to the same period in 2021.

At June 30, 2022, the Company had unrestricted cash totaling $4.8 million, compared to $2.5 million of unrestricted cash held as of June 30, 2021. Cash flows from operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2022 totaled $1.5 million compared to $682,000 from operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

The Company does not have any long-term debt recorded in its consolidated financial statements as at June 30, 2022.

All amounts referenced herein are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

The full financial statements are available at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.medicure.com.

Notes



(1) 

The Company defines EBITDA as "earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other income or expense" and Adjusted EBITDA as "EBITDA adjusted for non‑cash and non-recurring items". The terms "EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA", as it relates to the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 results prepared using IFRS, do not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
