WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

In 2Q 2018, we experienced our highest Afrezza sales ever due to increased physician trial and adoption. We have doubled our market share over the past year as a result of our commercialization efforts and are excited about our new Afrezza clinical data being released throughout 2018.  Additionally, Treprostinil Technosphere (TreT) continues to progress towards Phase 3 and may address an important unmet need for those living with pulmonary arterial hypertension,” said Michael Castagna, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind Corporation.

Second Quarter Results

For the second quarter of 2018, Afrezza net revenue was $3.8 million, an increase of 142% compared to $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 resulting from increased volume, price, and favorable cartridge mix.  On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASC 606, the new revenue recognition standard, under which we recognize revenue as we sell product to wholesale distributors; revenue for prior periods is recognized on the basis of a model that estimates the sale of Afrezza to patients.

Cost of goods sold remained level for the three months ended June 30, 2018 at $5.0 million compared to the same period in 2017. Lower inventory write-offs offset an increase in cost of goods sold resulting from higher Afrezza sales and excess capacity costs.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $2.9 million compared to $3.1 million for the second quarter of 2017, a decrease of $0.2 million or 5%, reflecting $0.7 million in lower salary related expenses for personnel who were engaged in research and development activities in 2017 who have transitioned to Afrezza medical affairs activities and a $0.3 million decrease in repairs and maintenance on laboratory equipment, offset by a $0.9 million increase in clinical trial costs.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $21.7 million for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $18.6 million for the second quarter of 2017.  The $3.1 million, or 17%, increase was primarily due to a $1.0 million increase in non-cash stock compensation expenses, a $0.8 million increase in consulting fees, a $0.6 million increase in costs related to transitioning certain corporate support functions from Connecticut to our corporate headquarters in California, and a $0.6 million increase in relocation spending for key personnel.

The net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $22.7 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to the $35.3 million net loss in the second quarter of 2017 or $0.35 per share.

Six Months Ended Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, Afrezza net revenue was $7.2 million, an increase of 161% compared to $2.7 million for the same period in 2017 (prior to the adoption of ASC 606).

Cost of goods sold for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $9.1 million compared to $7.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $1.5 million or 19%. This increase was due to the result of higher Afrezza sales of $0.8 million and $1.0 million increase of excess capacity costs. These increases were partially offset by lower inventory write-offs compared to the same period in 2017.

R&D expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $5.6 million compared to $6.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $0.7 million or 11%, reflecting $0.9 million in lower salary related expenses for personnel who were engaged in research and development activities in 2017 but transitioned to Afrezza medical affairs activities, offset by a $0.3 million increase in clinical trial costs.

SG&A expenses were $42.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $34.0 million for the six months ended 2017.  The $8.3 million or 24% increase was primarily due to a $1.7 million increase in additional headcount-related expenses associated with sales personnel hired in 2018, a $1.1 million increase in additional headcount-related expenses in our human resources, accounting, corporate communications, and office support departments, a $1.7 million increase in non-cash stock compensation expense, a $1.3 million increase in employee benefits, a $1.2 million increase in costs related to transitioning certain corporate support functions from Connecticut to our corporate headquarters in California, and a $0.9 million increase in consulting fees.

The net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $53.1 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to a $51.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, or $0.53 per share.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at June 30, 2018 decreased to $26.7 million compared to $48.4 million at December 31, 2017, primarily due to net cash used in operating activities of $48.8 million in 2018 primarily offset by $26.4 million of net proceeds from a registered direct offering of 14 million shares of common stock and warrants at a purchase price of $2.00 per share and accompanying warrant.
