 BioDelivery Sciences Provides Corporate Update and Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2015 Financial Results
   Thursday, March 10, 2016 4:01:00 PM ET

BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (BDSI ) reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2015, and reviewed its most significant recent accomplishments and upcoming milestones.

Net revenue for BUNAVAIL? (buprenorphine and naloxone) buccal film in the fourth quarter increased 29% to $1.5 million compared to the third quarter of 2015. BUNAVAIL net revenue for the 12-months ended December 31, 2015, was $4.2 million. BREAKYL? (brand name for ONSOLIS in the E.U.) revenue for the 12 month period was $1.4 million. BDSI net revenue for the 12-months ended December 31, 2015, was $48.2 million, compared to $38.9 million in the same period of 2014. This revenue increase was largely driven by the milestone payment received from Endo Pharmaceuticals upon the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of BELBUCA(TM) (buprenorphine) buccal film, which generated $50 million in payments. Thirty ($30) million was attributed to the actual regulatory approval and was earned immediately while the additional $20 million was attributed to the extension of patent protection until 2027 from a patent granted in 2012 and payable on the FDA approval of BELBUCA. The latter aspect of the payment will be recognized over the patent extension period.

"We are pleased with our accomplishments in 2015, including the continued growth of BUNAVAIL prescriptions, and the approval of BELBUCA, our third FDA approved product, and the recently announced commercial launch in the United States," said Dr. Mark A. Sirgo, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking ahead in 2016, we expect enhancements to our sales team, our recent agreement with Tennessee Medicaid, further commercial payer plan penetration and access, a pilot direct to consumer program, and certain government-driven initiatives, including the patient cap lift, to improve the growth trajectory of BUNAVAIL prescriptions. At the same time we will continue to explore strategic opportunities to maximize the value of that asset as well as our overall commercial infrastructure. In addition, we look forward to a strong BELBUCA launch from our partner Endo Pharmaceuticals and the continued advancement of our pipeline. With nearly $84 million in cash at the end of 2015, we continue to believe that BDSI has sufficient capital to support our current operating plan through approximately mid-2017."

Corporate Update and Recent Accomplishments

BUNAVAIL (buprenorphine and naloxone) buccal film (CIII)

-- BUNAVAIL prescriptions continued to grow, with a 66% increase from the third to fourth quarter of 2015. Since launch, over 75,000 prescriptions have been dispensed for BUNAVAIL.

-- BUNAVAIL prescriber base expanded to nearly 2,549 physicians, with 447 unique prescribers added during the fourth quarter.

-- Exclusive preferred formulary status for BUNAVAIL with Tennessee Medicaid was a key growth driver and added nearly 300 new BUNAVAIL prescribers in the state of Tennessee and over 7800 Medicaid prescriptions in the fourth quarter. BUNAVAIL prescription volume in Tennessee increased over 200% from the third quarter in the non-Medicaid segment (ie, commercial insurance and cash) as the Tennessee Medicaid formulary addition resulted in expanded BUNAVAIL use among other payer types.
