DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / February 14, 2024 / Aytu BioPharma, Inc. (the "Company" or "Aytu") (NASDAQ:AYTU), a pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel therapeutics, today announced financial and operational results for the fiscal 2024 second quarter.

Q2 2024 Highlights

  • Consolidated net revenue was $22.9 million, compared to $26.3 million in the prior year period. The decrease is primarily due to the planned wind down of the Company's Consumer Health Segment.
  • ADHD Portfolio (Adzenys XR-ODT® and Cotempla XR-ODT®) net revenue increased 49% to $16.6 million, compared to $11.1 million in the prior year period.
  • Net revenue from the Company's Rx Segment was $18.7 million compared to $18.0 million in the prior year period.
  • Consumer Health Segment net revenue during Q2 2024 was $4.2 million, a decrease of 49% versus the prior year period, and in line with the Company's strategy to wind down the Consumer Health Segment. As previously announced, the Company is winding down its Consumer Health Segment with the objective of discontinuing this segment in order to drive long-term stockholder value.
  • Rx Segment gross margin improved to 78% in Q2 2024 compared to 72% in the prior year period.
  • Consolidated operating income during Q2 2024 was $2.4 million compared to an operating loss of $6.9 million in the prior year period.
  • Net loss during Q2 2024 was $0.2 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to a net loss of $6.7 million, or $2.15 per share, in Q2 2023.
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA was $5.1 million in Q2 2024 compared to $0.7 million in the prior year period, a 599% increase.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $19.5 million at December 31, 2023 compared to $20.0 million at September 30, 2023.

1Aytu uses the term adjusted EBITDA, which is a term not defined under United States generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"). The Company uses this term because it is a widely accepted financial indicator utilized to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance. The Company believes that presenting adjusted EBITDA by certain categories allows investors to evaluate the various performance of these categories. The Company's method of computation of adjusted EBITDA may or may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. We believe that net income (loss) is the performance measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP that is most directly comparable to adjusted EBITDA. See below for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA.

Management Discussion

"I am extremely pleased with the results of the second quarter of fiscal 2024, which culminated in our first quarter of positive operating income in company history," commented Josh Disbrow, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aytu.

"The strategic initiatives we have undertaken to re-position Aytu as a growing, and now operating profitable, specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel prescription therapeutics are clearly working. Our ADHD Portfolio experienced a 49% year over year increase in net revenue during the second quarter to an Aytu record of $16.6 million driven by strong sales force execution and an enhanced commercial approach, along with continuing to leverage our innovative Aytu RxConnect platform, which we believe is a best-in-class patient support program. This growth in the ADHD Portfolio net revenue has been matched by an improvement in our Rx Segment gross margin, increasing from 72% a year ago to 78% this quarter, as well as efficiencies within operating expenses. Importantly, we believe we will see further operational improvements throughout calendar year 2024.

"The strength within ADHD, which represents approximately 88% of our Rx Segment revenues, was partially offset by the continuing effect of payor changes within our Pediatric Portfolio, which have impacted both net revenues and scripts. We made progress during the quarter expanding our customer base, having recently implemented multiple commercial initiatives, and we have seen some unslacking of the distribution channel, which has resulted in Poly-Vi-Flor units up significantly for the month of January 2024 versus December 2023. There is still work to be done, but we believe the trend in the Pediatrics Portfolio is heading back in a positive direction.

"As we have stated for the past few quarters, it has been our objective to transition Aytu from a multi-pronged approach, which included not only our Rx Segment, but also our Consumer Health Segment and pipeline development programs-both of which have been a drain on cash flows-to a specialty pharmaceutical company that can grow and achieve profitability. While we have been Rx Segment adjusted EBITDA positive for six of the last seven quarters, the ability to transition this business to operating income profitability is a tremendous accomplishment that was made possible by the hard-working individuals at Aytu. We remain focused on maximizing the potential of our Rx brands going forward with a focus on continuing to drive improvement in long-term stockholder value."

Consumer Health Segment Update

In June 2023, the Company announced that it had instituted a strategic mandate focusing its business solely on its Rx Segment, in an effort to drive long-term stockholder value. The Rx Segment has generated positive adjusted EBITDA for the 2023 fiscal year and for six of the last reported seven quarters. This concentration on the Rx Segment will result in discontinuing the Consumer Health Segment altogether. The Company expects to sell through the remaining Consumer Health Segment inventory resulting in approximately neutral adjusted EBITDA for the Consumer Health Segment in fiscal 2024.

This goal of emphasizing profitability was initially started with the indefinite suspension of all pipeline clinical development programs announced in October 2022 to minimize research and development expense until such time that the Company can fund those efforts with internally generated cash flow or through partnerships. During fiscal 2023, the Consumer Health Segment contributed negative adjusted EBITDA of $3.6 million and pipeline programs contributed a negative adjusted EBITDA of $2.6 million, while the Company's Rx Segment contributed positive adjusted EBITDA of $9.4 million.?
