IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evolus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOLS), a company dedicated to aesthetic medicine, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Additional Third Quarter 2018 and Recent Highlights:

  • Received acceptance for resubmission of Biologics License Application (“BLA”) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) with an assigned February 2, 2019 PDUFA date.
  • Raised total net proceeds to Evolus of approximately $67.7 million, before offering expenses, in a follow-on public offering of Evolus' common stock including the full exercise and closing of underwriter’s option to purchase additional shares.
  • Completed hiring of corporate leadership team including VP of Sales and direct reports.
  • Remain on track for anticipated U.S. commercial launch of DWP-450 in spring 2019.

David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Evolus, stated, “During the quarter we achieved a number of key regulatory and operational milestones that have positioned the company for a successful commercial launch of DWP-450 in spring 2019. Most notably, we resubmitted our BLA application to the FDA ahead of schedule and received acceptance of that resubmission from the FDA in late August, which we believe provides a clear sightline to commercial launch in Spring 2019. We have also continued to position the Company for commercial launch by further enhancing our management team and by building a strong balance sheet with approximately $105 million in cash at quarter end to support our near-term corporate objectives. If approved, we look forward to introducing DWP-450 to physicians and consumers.”

Mr. Moatazedi continued, “In addition to our success in advancing our U.S. strategy, we were also pleased to announce our receipt of approval of DWP-450 by Health Canada in August. We see a meaningful opportunity in Canada and look forward to our partner Clarion Medical Technologies, Inc launching DWP-450 in the first half of 2019. In Europe, we anticipate an opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Product for Human use in the first half of 2019. Pending a favorable opinion, we expect approval prior to mid-year.”

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Operating expenses for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 were $11.5 million, as compared to $2.6 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to expenses related to the revaluation of future contingent royalties on sales of $2.3 million, stock-based compensation of $1.5 million which increased largely due to hiring new employees including executives, and increases in costs related to operating as a public company, offset by a reduction in clinical trial costs associated with completion of Evolus' Phase III clinical trials last year.

Non-GAAP operating expense for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $7.7 million and was calculated as operating expense excluding stock-based compensation of $1.5 million and a revaluation expense of $2.3 million related to future royalties on sales.

Net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $11.8 million, or $0.48 basic and diluted net loss per share, compared with a net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.16 basic and diluted net loss per share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Total cash was $105.2 million as of September 30, 2018, an increase of $61.6 million compared to June 30, 2018. Cash as of September 30, 2018 includes total net proceeds of $67.7 million from Evolus' July follow-on public offering.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Evolus' financial results are prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). This press release and the reconciliation tables included in the financial schedules below include non-GAAP operating expense which is calculated as total operating expenses, excluding: (i) the revaluation of contingent royalty obligation payable and (ii) stock-based compensation expense. Management believes that non-GAAP operating expense is useful in helping to identify recurring operation performance and enables management to consistently analyze the period-to-period financial performance of the core business operations. Management also believes that non-GAAP operating expense will enable investors to assess in the same way management assesses Evolus' current and future operations. Non-GAAP operating expense should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

For a reconciliation of non-GAAP Operating Expense to total operating expenses, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see “Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Expense to Non-GAAP Operating Expense” in the financial schedules below.
