Collegium Obtains Six Month Extension of U.S. Pediatric Exclusivity for Nucynta Franchise
June 13, 2024

STOUGHTON, Mass., June 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Nasdaq: COLL), a leading, diversified specialty pharmaceutical company committed to improving the lives of people living with serious medical conditions, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted pediatric exclusivity for Nucynta® and Nucynta® ER (“the Nucynta Franchise”). In 2023, FDA granted New Patient Population exclusivity for Nucynta in pediatrics, extending the period of U.S. exclusivity from June 27, 2025, to July 3, 2026. FDA’s grant of pediatric exclusivity now extends exclusivity of the Nucynta Franchise an additional six months, to January 3, 2027, for Nucynta and December 27, 2025, for Nucynta ER.

“We are pleased with FDA’s grant of pediatric exclusivity for the Nucynta Franchise,” said Thomas Smith, M.D., Collegium’s Chief Medical Officer. “This grant of pediatric exclusivity enhances the value of the Nucynta franchise and bolsters our near-term outlook. Collegium is proud to lead with science in support of people living with serious medical conditions and the communities we serve.”

Nucynta is currently approved in the U.S. for the management of acute pain severe enough to require an opioid analgesic, in light of the known risks associated with opioid analgesic use, and for which alternative treatments are inadequate in adults and pediatric patients aged six years and older with a body weight of at least 40 kg.

Nucynta ER is currently approved in the U.S. for the management of severe and persistent pain in adults that requires an extended treatment period with a daily opioid analgesic, in light of the known risks associated with opioid analgesic use, and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate, and severe and persistent neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) in adults that requires an extended treatment period with a daily opioid analgesic and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate.

Management has already stated such. However, it's still positive to see the following in print -

The company has now completed a majority of its multi-year payer contracts at significantly higher margins to COLL. To underscore this development and what the market is missing, if COLL were to run its business as-is and retire its debt, we estimate it could have a $1 billion net cash position by 2027. Furthermore, if their largest potential competitor (Teva Pharmaceuticals) stays out of the market, it could produce another $1 billion of free cash flow over the next three years. The current market capitalization is roughly $1 billion…”

Jefferies upgrades Collegium to buy, cites upside related to LOEs -

Jun. 07, 2024 12:13 PM ET

Jefferies upgraded Collegium (NASDAQ:COLL) to buy, stating it believes the upside potential related to upcoming losses of market exclusivity for Collegium's drugs Nucynta and Belbuca is underappreciated.

The investment bank said it sees several drivers for the drugs despite the LOEs, including a Nucynta partnership with Hikma, pediatric extensions for Nucynta, and uncertainty about Teva's launch of a generic version of Belbuca. It also believes 2024 EBITDA consensus is “too low.”

Jeffries also noted that the company’s cash generation was “significant,” with its net cash expected to eclipse its market cap in fiscal 2028. It added that the company “could likely take itself private in the 2028 timeframe.”

Jefferies set its price target for the stock at $44.

Since Joe Ciaffoni was terminated, he has been selling his large holdings piecemeal. As a result, the share price is going SOUTH. Obviously, he wants to get revenge & sink the shareholders.

Resolution - B.O.D. - don't vest the upcoming, new President et al with as many perks!!

Another quick move by the B.O.D. - use some of $115M (left out of $150M) to purchase J.C's COLL securities.

Collegium Announces $35 Million Accelerated Share Repurchase Program
May 13, 2024

STOUGHTON, Mass., May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Nasdaq: COLL), a leading, diversified specialty pharmaceutical company committed to improving the lives of people living with serious medical conditions, today announced that it has entered into an Accelerated Share Repurchase ("ASR") agreement with Jefferies LLC to repurchase $35 million of the Company’s common stock. Collegium will execute the ASR as part of the $150 million share repurchase program authorized by its Board of Directors in January 2024. Upon completion of this ASR, Collegium will have $115 million remaining under the program.

“Our financial and strategic execution bolster the strength of our business today and in the future. Collegium’s strong start to 2024 was supported by robust cash generation, momentum in Belbuca® prescriptions, improved Xtampza® ER gross-to-net and the Nucynta Franchise authorized generic agreement, all of which put us on track to meet our 2024 financial guidance and improve our outlook in 2025 and beyond,” said Colleen Tupper, Chief Financial Officer of Collegium. “This $35 million ASR program reinforces our belief that the value of Collegium is underappreciated. We remain committed to leveraging our $150 million share repurchase program, which is authorized through the second quarter of 2025, to create value for our shareholders through our capital deployment strategy.”

Under terms of the agreement, Collegium will pay $35 million to Jefferies LLC and will receive an initial delivery of 888,889 shares, based on the $31.50 closing stock price of Collegium’s common stock on May 10, 2024, representing approximately 80% of the total shares the Company expects to repurchase under the ASR agreement. The final number of shares repurchased will be based on the volume-weighted average prices of Collegium’s common stock during the term of the ASR and subject to adjustments related to the terms and conditions of the ASR agreement. The final settlement of the ASR is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2024. As of March 31, 2024, Collegium had approximately 32.7 million shares outstanding.

Are You Looking for a Top Momentum Pick? Why Collegium Pharmaceutical (COLL) is a Great Choice
March 01, 2024 — 12:00 pm EST

For COLL, shares are up 11.57% over the past week while the Zacks Medical - Drugs industry is down 0.48% over the same time period. Shares are looking quite well from a longer time frame too, as the monthly price change of 9.68% compares favorably with the industry's 1.54% performance as well.

While any stock can see a spike in price, it takes a real winner to consistently outperform the market. Over the past quarter, shares of Collegium Pharmaceutical have risen 35.06%, and are up 34.86% in the last year. In comparison, the S&P 500 has only moved 11.77% and 30%, respectively.

Investors should also pay attention to COLL's average 20-day trading volume. Volume is a useful item in many ways, and the 20-day average establishes a good price-to-volume baseline; a rising stock with above average volume is generally a bullish sign, whereas a declining stock on above average volume is typically bearish. COLL is currently averaging 407,425 shares for the last 20 days.

Earnings Outlook

The Zacks Momentum Style Score encompasses many things, including estimate revisions and a stock's price movement. Investors should note that earnings estimates are also significant to the Zacks Rank, and a nice path here can be promising. We have recently been noticing this with COLL.

Over the past two months, 4 earnings estimates moved higher compared to 1 lower for the full year. These revisions helped boost COLL's consensus estimate, increasing from $6.02 to $6.29 in the past 60 days. Looking at the next fiscal year, 3 estimates have moved upwards while there have been no downward revisions in the same time period.

Collegium Pharmaceutical Q4: The Beat Goes On

Excerpts:

The company has been paying down debt and repurchasing stock with its impressive operational cash flow.

The shares have gathered momentum since we last gave a "thumbs up" to this name in late October. We take a look at earnings results and update our analysis around this solid small cap

Collegium posted its fourth quarter numbers on February 22nd. The company delivered non-GAAP earnings of $1.58 a share, more than 30 cents a share above estimates. Revenues rose 15.5% on a year-over-year to $149.7 million, slightly above the consensus. For the year, net product revenues came in at $566.8 million, up 22% over FY2022. Belbuca revenue was a core contributor to growth as net product revenues rose 17% to $49.3 million in the quarter. Xtampza ER did even better with a 38% rise from 4Q2022 to $48.5 million.

Since fourth quarter results hit the wires, both Needham ($40 price target) and Piper Sandler ($39 price target) have reiterated Buy ratings on the stock. H.C. Wainwright maintained its Hold rating on the shares.

Verdict:
Collegium Pharmaceutical made $1.29 a share in FY2023 on just under $567 million in sales. The current analyst firm consensus has profits jumping to $3.97 a share in FY2024 and $6.15 a share in FY2025 on slight increases in revenues. It should be noted these estimates are from just three analyst firms and vary widely for both FY2024 ($2.76 to $6.18 a share) and FY2025 ($3.60 to $8.11 a share).

Even at the low end of estimates, earnings look set to increase at a rapid rate over the next two years. The stock sells at just over 9 times the consensus EPS estimate for this fiscal year. The shares trading near the conversion price of Collegium's convertible debt could be a bit of an overhang.

On February 22, 2024, Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc (NASDAQ:COLL) released its 8-K filing, announcing record financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2023. The specialty pharmaceutical company, known for its abuse-deterrent products and patented DETERx platform technology, reported significant growth in revenue and earnings, surpassing its operational objectives and enhancing shareholder value.

Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc's President and CEO, Joe Ciaffoni, expressed satisfaction with the company's performance, stating,

2023 was a banner year for Collegium Pharmaceutical. We delivered record financial results, achieved our operational objectives and delivered value to shareholders through our share repurchase program."

The company's focus for 2024 is on operational execution, aiming to meet financial guidance and create shareholder value.

Colleen Tupper, Chief Financial Officer, highlighted the company's financial achievements, including record revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow. She emphasized the strategic financial management that led to a stronger balance sheet and capital return to shareholders. Tupper anticipates continued growth in 2024, driven by product sales and cost structure leverage.

Financial Performance Analysis
Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc's financial results reflect a robust performance in a competitive industry. The company's record net revenue of $149.7 million for the fourth quarter and $566.8 million for the full year signifies a strong market demand for its products, particularly Belbuca and Xtampza ER. The GAAP net income figures of $31.9 million for the quarter and $48.2 million for the year demonstrate effective cost management and operational efficiency.

The adjusted EBITDA of $104.2 million for the quarter and $367.0 million for the year is a critical metric for investors, as it illustrates the company's profitability and ability to generate cash from operations. The substantial reduction in debt and the successful refinancing of convertible debt are indicative of prudent financial stewardship, which is essential for sustaining growth and weathering market volatility.

Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc's commitment to shareholder returns, as evidenced by the $75.0 million share repurchase, is a testament to the company's confidence in its financial health and long-term prospects. The projected financial guidance for 2024, with net revenue expected to be between $580.0 to $595.0 million and adjusted EBITDA between $380.0 to $395.0 million, sets an optimistic tone for the company's future performance.

In conclusion, Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc's record earnings for the fourth quarter and full year of 2023 reflect a company that is not only thriving in its market niche but is also strategically positioned for continued growth.

Third Avenue Management, an investment management company based in New York City, released its “Small-Cap Value Fund” fourth quarter 2023 investor letter. A copy of the same can be downloaded here. In 2023 the fund returned 21.88% compared to a 14.65% return for the Russell 2000 Value Index. In Q4 the fund returned 9.38% versus 15.26% for the index. The returns, both absolute and relative, for the entire year were satisfactory. The past two years have seen rapid changes in equity prices due to varying interest rate outlooks. In addition, you can check the top 5 holdings of the fund to know its best picks in 2023.

Third Avenue Management Small-Cap Value Fund featured stocks such as Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) in the fourth quarter 2023 investor letter. Headquartered in Stoughton, Massachusetts, Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) is a specialty pharmaceutical company. On January 30, 2024, Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) stock closed at $33.45 per share. One-month return of Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) was -1.21%, and its shares gained 14.09% of their value over the last 52 weeks. Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) has a market capitalization of $1.091 billion.

Third Avenue Management Small-Cap Value Fund stated the following regarding Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) in its fourth quarter 2023 investor letter:

"Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) was added to the portfolio this past quarter, and the thesis is outlined below.

COLL is an abuse-deterrent opioid company. Since entering its commercialization phase in 2019, the company has benefitted by offering a competitive product to OxyContin. COLL’s lead drug (Xtampza) does not have a black box warning from the F.D.A. for pain management, which illustrates its lower abuse potential in this critical patient segment. COLL is a company we have been following for years since it announced the acquisition of its #2 competitor, BioDelivery Sciences in 2021. During that time, we have built conviction on the durability and continued growth of COLL’s future cash flows. COLL’s valuation has remained depressed, along with the broader healthcare sector. This presented a compelling entry point now that COLL has secured significantly higher margin, multi-year payer contracts because of its responsible pain management (as payers move away from Oxycontin). These contract renewals should help COLL build scale and margins and provide a well-defined path to improve its balance sheet.

The Fund initiated the investment when COLL was trading for a mere 3.2x free cash flow3, or 5.25x trailing enterprise value to trailing EBITDA4. In addition to a low absolute valuation, this investment appears to be misunderstood by investors focused purely on earnings who have not taken the time to sift through one-time items (such as settlement agreements and costs related to the extinguishment of debt) that understate the strength of its operating performance. The company has now completed a majority of its multi-year payer contracts at significantly higher margins to COLL. To underscore this development and what the market is missing, if COLL were to run its business as-is and retire its debt, we estimate it could have a $1 billion net cash position by 2027. Furthermore, if their largest potential competitor (Teva Pharmaceuticals) stays out of the market, it could produce another $1 billion of free cash flow over the next three years. The current market capitalization is roughly $1 billion…” (Click here to read the full text)

Official COLLEGIUM PHARMACEUTICAL, INC. press release

Purdue v. Collegium: Upholding The Board's Authority To Issue A Final Written Decision Even After The Statutory Deadline Has Passed
December 08, 2023 at 05:11 am EST

On November 21, 2023, the Federal Circuit in Purdue Pharma L.P et al. v. Collegium Pharm., Inc. (i) affirmed that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“Board”) has authority to issue a Final Written Decision after the statutory deadline has passed, and (ii) affirmed the Board's determination that claims 1-17 of U.S. Patent No. 9,693,961 (“'961 patent”) are unpatentable for lack of written description.1 Regarding the Board's authority, the Federal Circuit concluded that the Board's failure to comply with the statutory deadline does not deprive it of authority to render a final determination.2 On the merits, the Federal Circuit determined that neither the specification of the '961 patent nor its priority application provide adequate written description support.3

I. BACKGROUND

Purdue Pharma L.P. (“Purdue) owns the '961 patent, titled “Pharmaceutical Formulation Containing Gelling Agent,” issued on July 4, 2017.4 The '961 patent is directed to preventing or deterring “the abuse of opioid analgesics by the inclusion of at least one aversive agent in the dosage form.”5 The aversive agent “helps to prevent injection, inhalation, and/or oral abuse by decreasing the attractiveness of the dosage form to a potential abuser.”6 Representative claim 1, in relevant part, recites:

A method of preparing an abuse deterrent controlled release dosage form comprising:
combining oxycodone or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof as active agent, polyglycolyzed glycerides, a C12 to C40 fatty acid or a mixture thereof, carnauba wax and beeswax, to form a homogenous mixture, wherein the oxycodone or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is the sole active agent in the dosage form; . . . .7

In September 2017, Purdue sued Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (“Collegium”) for infringement of the '961 patent.8 In March 2018, Collegium petitioned the Board for post grant review (“PGR”) of claims 1-17 of the '961 patent.9 Purdue argued that the '961 patent was not subject to PGR because it claimed priority to an application filed before March 16, 2013, i.e., a pre- America Invents Act (“AIA”) application.10 The Board found that the '961 patent was eligible for PGR because the pre-AIA application “did not contain sufficient written description support for the claimed invention, and the effective filing date was therefore after March 16, 2013.” 11The Board also found that the '961 patent specification likely lacked written description.12 Accordingly, the Board instituted PGR.13 Under 35 US.C. § 326(a)(11), the Board had one year to issue a Final Written Decision subject to a six-month extension for good cause.14

Upon Purdue filing a Notice of Bankruptcy and Imposition of Automatic Stay, the Board stayed the PGR proceeding.15 The parallel district court infringement case was also stayed.16 As the one-year deadline for the Board to issue a Final Written Decision approached, the Board found good cause to extend the stay “so the bankruptcy court could assess whether the automatic stay applied to PGRs.”17 After the six-month extended deadline had passed, the bankruptcy court lifted the stay for both the district court case and the PGR proceeding.18

Purdue moved to terminate the PGR proceeding, arguing that “the Board no longer had the authority to issue a Final Written Decision as the 18-month deadline had passed.”19
The Board denied Purdue's motion and held that “under the circumstances of this case, the AIA's silence as to a consequence for timely issuing a final written decision does not divest us of our authority to issue our final written decision.”20 The Board issued its Final Written Decision, finding all claims unpatentable for lack of written description and anticipation.21 Purdue Appealed.22

II. FEDERAL CIRCUIT DECISION

A. THE BOARD'S AUTHORITY

As “a matter of first impression,” the Federal Circuit held that “following the Supreme Court's rule, the Board has authority to issue a Final Written Decision even after the deadline proscribed in the statute has passed absent any contrary indication in the language, structure, or legislative history of the statute.”23 35 US.C. § 326(a)(11) provides:

(a) Regulations—The Director shall prescribe regulations—

(11) requiring that the final determination in any post-grant review be issued not later than 1 year after the date on which the Director notices the institution of a proceeding under this chapter, except that the Director may, for good cause shown, extend the 1-year period by not more than 6 months, and may adjust the time periods in this paragraph in the case of joinder under section 325(c)24

1. STATUTORY LANGUAGE AND STRUCTURE

Purdue advanced several arguments based on the language and structure of section 326(a)(11). Each was rejected by the Federal Circuit.

First, Purdue argued that the use of the terms “shall” and “requiring” in the statute “deprives the Board of authority to issue a Final Written Decision after the deadline.” The Federal Circuit rejected Purdue's argument as contrary to Supreme Court precedent.25 The Federal Circuit explained that the words “shall” and “requiring” in section 326(a)(11) are “equivalent” and, under Supreme Court precedent, do not divest the Board of authority to issue a final determination after the statutory deadline.26

Second, Purdue contended that “the 'negative words' of 'not later than 1 year' and 'by not more than 6 months' in the section 326(a)(11) show 'the acts required shall not be done in any other manner or time than that designated.'”27 The Federal Circuit dismissed Purdue's contention because “the Supreme Court has held that similar statutory language as that involved here does not result in a loss of authority.”28 Likewise, the Federal Circuit has also “held that a statute containing 'not later than' 'created timing provisions that are at best precatory rather than mandatory.'”29

Third, Purdue asserted that the Board lacked jurisdiction after the statutory deadline because section 326(a)(11) is linked to the Board's jurisdictional grant in section 6 of Section 326(c).30 The Federal Circuit disagreed with Purdue, finding that the statute did not include a “clear statement” that the procedural rule violation would deprive the Board of jurisdiction, as required by Supreme Court precedent.31

Fourth, Purdue argued that “the exceptions in section 326(a)(11) for 'good cause' and 'joinder' show those are the only two limited circumstances under which the Board may issue a Final Written Decision after the one-year deadline.”32 But the Federal Circuit disagreed, explaining that “'enunciation of two exceptions does not imply an exclusion of a third.'”33

Finally, the Federal Circuit emphasized that “section 328(a) mandates that the Board issue a Final Written Decision,” whereas other provisions of AIA, such as sections 315(b) and 321(c), “use quite different language to bar action after deadlines pass.”34 The Federal Circuit stated that “[h]ad Congress meant to deprive the agency of power in section 326(a)(11), it knew how to do it, and, significantly, it did not use language in section 326(a)(11) similar to that used in other sections.”35

2. LEGISLATIVE HISTORY

The Federal Circuit also rejected Purdue's argument that the legislative history deprives the Board of authority to act after the statutory deadline passes.36

The Federal Circuit noted that “Congress enacted the AIA in part to replace inter partes reexaminations,” which “were lengthy and inefficient, often lasting three to five years,” with PGRs and IPRs “to make patent review expeditious[.]”37 The Federal Circuit explained that

[F]orbidding the Board to issue a Final Written Decision after the deadline has passed would go against Congressional intent. If the Board could not issue a Final Written Decision, the parties would be forced to pursue the issue in district court litigation. This is the exact opposite of the purpose of the AIA, which is meant to create a more efficient alternative to district court litigation.38

The Federal Circuit also explained that the Board may not ignore statutory deadlines because a party may seek a petition for a writ of mandamus from the court immediately upon the deadline's expiration to compel the agency to act.39
Thus, the Federal Circuit concluded that “the Board's failure to comply with the statutory deadline does not deprive it of authority thereafter to issue a final written decision.” 40

* * *

Upon assessing “whether the '961 specification adequately discloses the claimed polyglycolyzed glycerides ('PGGs') as an aversive agent,” the Federal Circuit upheld the Board's finding that “the claimed formulation was not disclosed,” and therefore, affirmed the Board's determination that the claims were invalid for lack of written description.41 Having affirmed the Board's invalidation of the claims under section 112, the panel declined to reach the issue of anticipation.42

III. CONCLUSION

If the Board fails to comply with the statutory deadline, the appropriate remedy for a party seeking issuance of a Final Written Decision is to petition for mandamus to compel a decision from the Board.

3 Pharma Stocks Flashing 'Buy' Signals in December - Dec. 8

The pharmaceutical industry is well-positioned for robust growth, driven by growing healthcare expenditure globally and the rapid adoption of digital technologies. Given the industry’s tailwinds, fundamentally strong pharma stocks, Collegium Pharmaceutical (COLL), Eton Pharmaceuticals (ETON), and GSK plc (GSK) could be ideal buys this month

COLL is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes pain management medicines. The company’s portfolio includes Xtampza ER, an abuse-deterrent and oil formulation of oxycodone; Nucynta ER and Nucynta IR, which are formulations of tapentadol; Belbuca, a buccal film that contains buprenorphin; and Symproic.

On November 9, COLL entered into an Accelerated Share Repurchase (ASR) agreement with Jefferies LLC to repurchase $25 million of the company’s common stock. The company is executing the ASR as part of the $100 million share repurchase program authorized by its Board of Directors in January 2023.

“Our record financial performance in 2023 year-to-date puts Collegium on track to deliver a banner year. Our financial strength, underscored by robust cash generation, enables us to execute on our capital deployment strategy,” said Joe Ciaffoni, President and Chief Executive Officer of Collegium.

On August 24, COLL was granted New Patient Population exclusivity for Nucynta®, an immediate-release formulation of tapentadol, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This grant extends the period of U.S. exclusivity for Nucynta from June 27, 2025, to July 3, 2026.

The grant of additional exclusivity recognizes the importance of Nucynta in treating acute, severe pain.

COLL’s net product revenues increased 7.6% year-over-year to $136.71 million in the third quarter that ended September 30, 2023. Its gross profit grew 36.5% from the year-ago value to $80.31 million. Its income from operations rose 119.9% year-over-year to $45.01 million. Its adjusted EBITDA was $89.40 million, up 19.4% from the prior year’s quarter.

In addition, COLL’s adjusted net income rose 29.3% from the prior year’s quarter to $55 million, and its adjusted EPS came in at $1.34, an increase of 21.9% year-over-year.

The company updated its full-year 2023 guidance. COLL reaffirmed net product revenues to $565.0 million-$570.0 million, and it expects its adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $360 million and $365 million.

Street expects COLL’s revenue for the fourth quarter (ending December 2023) to increase 14% year-over-year to $147.80 million. Further, the consensus EPS estimate for the current quarter of $1.40 indicates an improvement of 28.8% year-over-year.

Shares of COLL have gained 27.1% over the past six months and 24.3% over the past year to close the last trading session at $27.18.

COLL’s solid prospects are reflected in its POWR Ratings. The stock has an overall rating of B, which translates to a Buy in our proprietary rating system. The POWR Ratings are calculated by considering 118 different factors, each weighted to an optimal degree.

The stock has an A grade for Quality and B for Growth and Value. COLL is ranked #14 out of 157 stocks in the Medical – Pharmaceuticals industry.

Appeals Court Upholds PTAB’s Finding of Invalidity of Purdue’s 961 Patent
November 27, 2023

STOUGHTON, Mass., Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Nasdaq: COLL), a leading, diversified specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has upheld the judgment of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) in its final decision that Purdue’s ‘961 patent, which Purdue has claimed is infringed by Xtampza® ER, is invalid.

The Federal Circuit’s decision affirming the invalidity of Purdue’s ‘961 patent confirms both that the PTAB had statutory authority to issue its final decision, and that the PTAB did correctly conclude that the '961 patent was invalid.

“We applaud the Federal Circuit’s decision to confirm the authority of the PTAB and uphold its finding of invalidity of Purdue’s patent,” said Shirley Kuhlmann, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel of Collegium. “We will continue to vigorously defend Collegium's intellectual property against claims of infringement.”

“Our record financial performance in 2023 year-to-date puts Collegium on track to deliver a banner year. Our financial strength, underscored by robust cash generation, enables us to execute on our capital deployment strategy,” said Joe Ciaffoni, President and Chief Executive Officer of Collegium. “We are committed to opportunistically returning value to our shareholders through our share repurchase program. Since 2021, we have returned $112 million of capital to our shareholders through share repurchases. This additional $25 million ASR program is a productive use of our capital with the potential to generate high returns for our shareholders.”

Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (NASDAQ:COLL) Q3 2023 Earnings Call Transcript

Excerpts:
Xtampza ER will maintain its current formulary position and accounts representing 57% of the opportunity at an overall lower rebate level, and plans were Xtampza ER will move to non-formulary, it will be at parity with OxyContin.

We ended the quarter with over $300 million in cash and marketable securities,

For full-year 2023, we expect to grow revenue greater than 20% year-over-year and adjusted EBITDA at 1.5x that rate. Our accomplishments renegotiating of Belbuca and Xtampza ER payor contracts position both products for improved gross-to-nets to support revenue growth in 2024.

As we have demonstrated through our completed $50 million accelerated share repurchase program, and now our additional $25 million accelerated share repurchase program, we are committed to opportunistically returning value to our shareholders.

We believe that our stock continues to be significantly undervalued and we will continue to leverage our share repurchase program to return capital to our shareholders.

Over the last two years, we have successfully renegotiated contracts that represented 84% of all Xtampza ER prescriptions. In 77% of the renegotiation opportunity, we were able to maintain Xtampza ER's formulary position and materially roll back the overall rebate level.

As you know we are locked into the paying down of our debt and as we’ve been very clear, we think there is a significant disconnect between the intrinsic value of the company and where our share price has been.

Further reinforcing our commitment to deliver value to our shareholders through effective capital deployment, today we announced as part of our $100 million share repurchase program, our Board has authorized us to enter into a new $25 million accelerated share repurchase program. We believe that our stock continues to be significantly undervalued and we view our share repurchase program as productive use of our capital to generate high returns for our shareholders.

Q: One more from me on the BD front. What’s your funnel essentially look like now. Are there any opportunities essentially in other non-abuse-deterrent options available in the market now, and then, if not other opportunities out there and what does the competitive landscape essentially look like and also valuations in the current market environment.
A: ....we’re open to anything that really hits the profile of a differentiated commercial stage asset with $150 million plus peak sales potential with exclusivity into the 2030s. Whatever acquisition, we’re able to achieve, we will not be like the ones we’ve done in the past where we’re leveraging our PAIN infrastructure, we’ll be setting a second commercial beachhead. So these will be a lower synergy, more strategically oriented deal for Collegium and that’s our focus. In terms of valuations, what I would say, Les, is right now, what we’ve seen is a lot of receptivity in willingness to engage.
And whilst the financial strength of our company and the fact that we don’t have to do a deal, we aspire to do one will continue to engage and work with urgency. But we won’t strike until we get to a price that we’re comfortable with and believe creates value for our shareholders.

Collegium Pharmaceutical: Delivering On Promises - SEEKING ALPHA
Oct. 24, 2023 2:59 PM ETCollegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (COLL)

Bret Jensen

Summary
Today, we revisit Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc., which has seen a 30% increase in its stock price since our last look at it in June 2022.
Collegium Pharmaceutical has done a good job integrating Belbuca into its product portfolio, paying down debt and recently accelerating a stock buyback program.

Excerpts:
The company ended the first half of 2023 with approximately $325 million worth of cash and marketable securities on its balance sheet.

Verdict:
The company lost 74 cents a share in FY2022 on revenues of nearly $464 million. The current analyst firm consensus has the company having profits of $1.03 a share as sales rise by some $100 million. Earnings per share are projected to leap to just over $2.75 a share in FY2024 on sales growth in the mid-single digits.

Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. stock is cheap based on FY2024 profit estimates. Nucynta and Belbuca will lose patent exclusivity in 2027. However, management has stated that "our base case long-range plan, net of paying off our term loan is that it will have greater than $1 billion of cash on hand at the end of 2027." The company has done a good job of integrating Belbuca within its product portfolio and driving growth while containing expenses.
