Medicure Reports Financial Results for Quarter Ended March 31, 2019

WINNIPEG, May 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Medicure Inc. ("Medicure" or the "Company") (TSXV:MPH, OTC:MCUJF), a pharmaceutical company, today reported its results from operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. 

Quarter Ended March 31, 2019 Highlights:

  • Recorded net revenue from the sale of AGGRASTAT® (tirofiban hydrochloride) of $4.8 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to $6.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018;
  • $55.5 million in cash and short-term investments as at March 31, 2019;
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA1) for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was negative $1.7 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $927,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018; and
  • Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was $2.8 million compared to net income of $1.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Financial Results

Net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $4.9 million compared to $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Net revenues from AGGRASTAT® for the three months ended March 31, 2019 were $4.8 million compared to $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018.  Additionally, ReDSTM point of care system ("ReDSTM"), contributed $103,000 of net revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019. 

The Company continued to experience strong patient market share held and strong hospital demand for AGGRASTAT® during the three months ended March 31, 2019, however increases in volume compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018 were offset by increased price competition that resulted in lower discounted prices for AGGRASTAT® throughout the quarter.

Diversification of revenues remains an important aspect of the Company's focus with Medicure concentrating on the sales and marketing of AGGRASTAT®, growing the sales of ZYPITAMAGTM (pitavastatin) and marketing the recently licensed ReDSTM device system.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was negative $1.7 million compared to $927,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2019 is the result of the higher selling, general and administration expenses caused by the incurrence of additional costs relating to the commercial organization due to the Company's additional products, higher cost of goods sold attributable to an increased volume of AGGRASTAT® sold and lower revenues experienced during the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $2.8 million or $0.18 per share. This compares to net income of $1.4 million or $0.09 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Similar to the decrease in adjusted EBITDA, the net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 is the result of higher selling, general and administration expenses, higher cost of goods sold and lower revenues experienced during the quarter. Foreign exchange loss relating to a decrease in the value of the U.S. dollar experienced during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 also contributed to the net loss.

At March 31, 2019, the Company had unrestricted cash and short-term investments totaling $55.5 million compared to $71.9 million as of December 31, 2018. The decrease in cash is primarily due to the investment made in Sensible Medical Innovations Ltd. and a decrease in the value of the U.S. dollar as at March 31, 2019 compared to December 31, 2018.  Cash flows used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 totaled $1.9 million.

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

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 quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 results prepared using International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), do not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS. It is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
