InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV) today reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Richard Toselli, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of InVivo, commented, “InVivo achieved many critical and exciting milestones over the past year. Early in 2018 we received FDA approval of our supplemental Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) to initiate a second pivotal study of the company’s Neuro-Spinal Scaffold™ in patients with acute spinal cord injury (SCI), the INSPIRE 2.0 Study. In addition, we successfully raised net proceeds of $16.5 million in 2018, which put us in a position to focus on the initiation of the INSPIRE 2.0 Study, while implementing significant cost saving measures, which resulted in an $11.8 million or a 48 percent decrease in our operating expenses year over year. Finally, we continue work towards enrollment in the INSPIRE 2.0 Study, and with five clinical sites recently activated and now open for enrollment, we expect to begin enrollment in Q2 of this year.”

Dr. Toselli concluded, “In addition to continued progress on the INSPIRE 2.0 Study and our fundraising activities, we are encouraged by the prospect of building a more diversified pipeline with technologies that align with our core competencies and fundamental interests.”

Financial Results

Operating expenses for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were $12,767,000 and $24,593,000 respectively, representing a 48% decrease in operating expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported a net loss of approximately $23,423,000, or $4.69 per share, compared to a net loss of approximately $26,745,000, or $20.29 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2017. Included in results for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were non-cash losses of $12,165,000 and $2,267,000, respectively. The loss of $12,165,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 can be attributed to the issuance of the liability classified warrants in 2018 and the subsequent change in fair value through the date of warrant exercises or reclassification to equity. The loss of $2,267,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017 can be attributed to the impact of the August 2017 warrant exchange and the decrease in the fair value of derivative warrant liability primarily due to the decrease in the fair value of the underlying common stock. Excluding the impact of the derivative warrant liability, adjusted net loss for the year ended December 31, 2018, was $11,258,000, or $2.25 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $24,478,000, or $18.57 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company ended the year with $16,660,000 of cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2018.

Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of the items noted. A reconciliation of these measures to the comparable GAAP measures is included with the tables contained in this release. The Company believes a presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors, enabling them to better understand the Company’s operations, on a period-to-period comparable basis, with financial amounts both including and excluding these identified items.
