ADMA Biologics Announces Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2023 Revenue and Provides Business Update
 
4Q 2023 Preliminary Unaudited Total Revenue of $72-74 Million
 
FY 2023 Preliminary Unaudited Total Revenue of $256-258 Million
 
FY 2024 and 2025 Total Revenue Guidance Increased to More than $320 Million and $370 Million, Respectively
 
FY 2024 Net Income Expected to Exceed $60 Million and Adjusted EBITDA(1) Expected to be $85 Million
 
Growth Opportunities Targeting Manufacturing and New Pipeline Hyperimmune Globulin to Advance During 2024
 
RAMSEY, N.J. and BOCA RATON, FL, January 8, 2024 - ADMA Biologics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADMA) (“ADMA” or the “Company”), an end-to-end commercial biopharmaceutical company dedicated to manufacturing, marketing and developing specialty biologics, today announced its preliminary unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2023 revenues and provided a business update.  Based on unaudited financial information, ADMA preliminarily estimates that its total revenue for the quarter- and year-ended December 31, 2023 will be between $72 million and $74 million and $256 million and $258 million, respectively.
 
“Entering 2024 from a position of strength, we're increasing both top and bottom-line financial guidance due to robust business trends and strong forward-looking product demand indicators. Additionally, we've identified new growth opportunities that we believe have the potential to approximately double currently provided peak revenue and earnings by the end of this decade,” said Adam Grossman, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADMA. “These growth opportunities, such as manufacturing yield enhancement and the commencement of pre-clinical development for our new S. pneumonia hyperimmune pipeline program, are expected to be capital-efficient and will not impact the upwardly revised 2024-2025 profitability guidance.”
 
Mr. Grossman continued, “We anticipate 2024 will be defined by continued top tier revenue and earnings growth, commitment to capital allocation strategies that we believe will maximize stockholder value, and further de-risking growth initiatives that have the potential to provide transformative upside to ADMA’s currently provided peak revenue and earnings potential. The combination of our continued success with ASCENIV and BIVIGAM, in addition to the potential contribution from new growth opportunities, we believe positions us to continue to make a difference in patients’ lives and generate durable top and bottom-line growth for years to come.”
 
2024-2025 Financial Guidance:
 

FY 2024-2025 Total Revenue expected to be in the range of $320 Million to $370 Million, respectively, increased from $290 Million and $335 Million previously.
 

FY 2024-2025 Net Income expected to exceed $60 Million to $110 Million, respectively, increased from $55 Million and $100 Million previously.
 

FY 2024 Adjusted EBITDA anticipated to reach $85 Million or more.
 
(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. The estimated Adjusted EBITDA amounts included herein are preliminary and reconciliations cannot be produced at this time without unreasonable effort. The Company expects to provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP measure in its earnings release relating to the fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial results.


New Growth Opportunities: These initiatives, if successful, represent upside to newly provided guidance ranges:
 
Biologic Production Yield Enhancement: The Company continues to make progress with development scale and laboratory analyses, advancing ADMA’s initiative to capture additional IG production yields with the same quantities of starting raw material. These initiatives are subject to further evaluation, validation of commercial-scale production and requisite regulatory review. If proven successful, these yield enhancements will potentially provide significant upside to the Company’s peak financial targets.
 
New Pipeline Introduction - S. pneumonia Hyperimmune Globulin:
 
o
S. pneumonia is the predominant cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in the United States, ranking as the ninth leading cause of overall mortality. We believe the strategic importance and unmet need are evident in both the prophylactic and therapeutic settings where documented anti-infective resistance is on the rise. Annually, approximately one million U.S. adults contract pneumococcal pneumonia, resulting in 400,000 hospitalizations and a 5-7% mortality rate, of which approximately 7,000 deaths annually are attributable to anti-infective resistance. Despite vaccine availabilities, vaccine-naive and immune-compromised patient populations remain at risk and could potentially benefit from the immediately available neutralizing antibodies conferred with a hyperimmune globulin in both the in-patient and out-patient treatment settings.  We estimate that an S. pneumonia hyperimmune globulin, if approved, has the potential to generate peak revenue of $300-500 Million.
o
ADMA holds multiple U.S. and foreign patents and patent applications encompassing various aspects of its proprietary pneumococcal hyperimmune technology. These include U.S. Patent Nos. 10,259,865 and 11,084,870, EP Patent No. 3375789, and other patents, each with patent term through 2037, as well as numerous pending U.S. and foreign applications. Issued and pending claims encompass ADMA’s hyperimmune anti-pneumococcal immune globulin, methods of preparing the immune globulin, and methods of using the immune globulin (e.g., to treat S. pneumonia infection or to provide immunotherapy to a patient).

ASCENIV Label Expansion: The ongoing post-marketing pediatric clinical study for ASCENIV is progressing and may provide label expansion opportunities, further strengthening ADMA’s product portfolio compared to peers, if successful.
 
About ASCENIV™
 
ASCENIV (immune globulin intravenous, human – slra 10% liquid) is a plasma-derived, polyclonal, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG). ASCENIV was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2019 and is indicated for the treatment of primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI), also known as primary immune deficiency disease (PIDD), in adults and adolescents (12 to 17 years of age). ASCENIV is manufactured using ADMA’s unique, patented plasma donor screening methodology and tailored plasma pooling design, which blends normal source plasma and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) plasma obtained from donors tested using the Company’s proprietary microneutralization assay. ASCENIV contains naturally occurring polyclonal antibodies, which are proteins that are used by the body’s immune system to neutralize microbes, such as bacteria and viruses and prevent against infection and disease. ASCENIV is protected by U.S. Patents: 9,107,906, 9,714,283 and 9,815,886. Certain data and other information about ASCENIV can be found by visiting www.asceniv.com. Information about ADMA and its products can be found on the Company’s website at www.admabiologics.com.


Additional Important Safety Information About ASCENIV™
 
WARNING: THROMBOSIS, RENAL DYSFUNCTION AND ACUTE RENAL FAILURE
 
Thrombosis may occur with immune globulin intravenous (IGIV) products, including ASCENIV. Risk factors may include: advanced age, prolonged immobilization, hypercoagulable conditions, history of venous or arterial thrombosis, use of estrogens, indwelling vascular catheters, hyperviscosity, and cardiovascular risk factors.
 
Renal dysfunction, acute renal failure, osmotic nephrosis, and death may occur with the administration of IGIV products in predisposed patients.
 
Renal dysfunction and acute renal failure occur more commonly in patients receiving IGIV products containing sucrose. ASCENIV does not contain sucrose.
For patients at risk of thrombosis, renal dysfunction or renal failure, administer ASCENIV at the minimum dose and infusion rate practicable. Ensure adequate hydration in patients before administration. Monitor for signs and symptoms of thrombosis and assess blood viscosity in patients at risk for hyperviscosity.

ASCENIV™ Contraindications:
 
History of anaphylactic or severe systemic reactions to human immunoglobulin.
 
IgA deficient patients with antibodies to IgA and a history of hypersensitivity.
 
ASCENIV™ Warnings and Precautions:
 
IgA-deficient patients with antibodies against IgA are at greater risk of developing severe hypersensitivity and anaphylactic reactions. Have medications such as epinephrine available to treat any acute severe hypersensitivity reactions. [4, 5.1]
 
Thrombotic events have occurred in patients receiving IGIV treatments. Monitor patients with known risk factors for thrombotic events; consider baseline assessment of blood viscosity for patients at risk of hyperviscosity. [5.2, 5.4]
 
In patients at risk of developing acute renal failure. monitor renal function, including blood urea nitrogen (BUN), serum creatinine, and urine output. [5.3, 5.9]
 
Hyperproteinemia, increased serum viscosity, and hyponatremia or pseudohyponatremia can occur in patients receiving IGIV treatment.
 
Aseptic meningitis syndrome (AMS) has been reported with IGIV treatments, especially with high doses or rapid infusion. [5.5]
 
Hemolytic anemia can develop subsequent to IGIV treatment. Monitor patients for hemolysis and hemolytic anemia. [5.6]
 
Monitor patients for pulmonary adverse reactions (Transfusion-related acute lung injury [TRALI]). If transfusion related acute lung injury is suspected, test the product and patient for antineutrophil antibodies. [5.7]
 
Because this product is made from human blood, it may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents, e.g., viruses, and theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent.
 

ASCENIV™ Adverse Reactions:
 
The most common adverse reactions to ASCENIV (≥5% of study subjects) were headache, sinusitis, diarrhea, gastroenteritis viral, nasopharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection, bronchitis, and nausea
