Recent Business Highlights
- Validation of EXPAREL Marketing Authorization Application from
European Medicines Agency. In June, Pacira announced that the company’s Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for EXPAREL for postsurgical analgesia was validated by the European Medicines Agency(EMA). With this validation, the Pacira application is complete and the EMA Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use will now begin the review procedure with an opinion expected in the second half of 2020.
- Appointment of former
Johnson & Johnsonexecutive, Max Reinhardt, as President. In June, Pacira announced the appointment of Max Reinhardtas the company’s president. Mr. Reinhardt will report to Dave Stack, chairman and chief executive officer of Pacira, and be responsible for overseeing all commercial and medical affairs functions at Pacira. Mr. Stack will maintain leadership of the overall Pacira corporate strategy.
- New analysis shows use of EXPAREL associated with improved clinical and economic outcomes following hip replacement surgery. In June, Pacira announced new data on the use of EXPAREL following total hip arthroplasty (THA). The findings show that patients receiving EXPAREL had a significant reduction in opioid use, hospital length of stay and total hospitalization costs compared to THA patients who did not receive the product. The results were published in
The Journal of Medical Economics.
- Publication of pivotal study of EXPAREL as a single-dose interscalene brachial plexus nerve block in patients undergoing shoulder surgery. In June, Pacira announced the publication of its multinational Phase 3 study supporting the efficacy and safety of EXPAREL as a single-injection interscalene plexus nerve block in patients undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty or rotator cuff repair. The data, which provided the basis for
FDAapproval for this indication, were published in Pain Medicine.
- Phase 4 study demonstrates superiority of EXPAREL plus bupivacaine versus bupivacaine alone in Cesarean Section procedures. In
May 2019, Pacira announced full results from its Phase 4 study of EXPAREL administered via TAP field block in patients undergoing C-Section. EXPAREL achieved its primary endpoint with a statistically significant reduction in total postsurgical opioid consumption through 72 hours. EXPAREL also achieved statistical significance for reduction in pain intensity scores through 72 hours.
2019 Financial Guidance
Pacira updated its guidance for selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense and reiterated its remaining guidance. For the full year 2019, the company currently expects:
- EXPAREL net product sales in the range of
$400 million to $410 million.
- iovera° net product sales in the range of
$8 million to $10 million.
- Non-GAAP gross margins in the range of 75% to 76%.
- Non-GAAP research and development (R&D) expense in the range of
$60 million to $70 million.
- Non-GAAP SG&A expense in the range of
$180 million to $190 millionversus the company’s previously guided range of $165 million to $175 million. Non-GAAP SG&A guidance was increased primarily due to the inclusion of commercial infrastructure costs for iovera°.
- Stock-based compensation in the range of
$30 million to $35 million.
EXPAREL (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) is indicated for single-dose infiltration in adults to produce postsurgical local analgesia and as an interscalene brachial plexus nerve block to produce postsurgical regional analgesia. Safety and efficacy have not been established in other nerve blocks. The product combines bupivacaine with DepoFoam®, a proven product delivery technology that delivers medication over a desired time period. EXPAREL represents the first and only multivesicular liposome local anesthetic that can be utilized in the peri- or postsurgical setting. By utilizing the DepoFoam platform, a single dose of EXPAREL delivers bupivacaine over time, providing significant reductions in cumulative pain scores with up to a 78 percent decrease in opioid consumption; the clinical benefit of the opioid reduction was not demonstrated. Additional information is available at www.EXPAREL.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains financial measures that do not comply with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), such as non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP cost of goods sold, non-GAAP gross margins, non-GAAP research and development (R&D) expense and non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense, because such measures exclude milestone revenue, acquisition-related costs, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt discount, product discontinuation costs, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and an income tax benefit and step-up in basis of inventory in connection with the acquisition of
These measures supplement Pacira’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pacira management uses these measures to better analyze its financial results, estimate its future cost of goods sold, gross margins, R&D expense and SG&A expense outlook for 2019 and to help make managerial decisions. In management’s opinion, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of our financial statements by providing greater transparency into the operating performance at Pacira and its future outlook. Such measures should not be deemed to be an alternative to GAAP requirements or a measure of liquidity for Pacira. Non-GAAP measures are also unlikely to be comparable with non-GAAP disclosures released by other companies. See the tables below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures, and a reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP 2019 financial guidance for gross margins, R&D expense and SG&A expense.
Important Safety Information for Patients
EXPAREL should not be used in obstetrical paracervical block anesthesia.
In studies where EXPAREL was injected into the wound, the most common side effects were nausea, constipation, and vomiting.
In studies where EXPAREL was injected near a nerve, the most common side effects were nausea, fever, and constipation.
EXPAREL is not recommended to be used in patients younger than 18 years old or in pregnant women.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have liver disease, since this may affect how the active ingredient (bupivacaine) in EXPAREL is eliminated from your body.
EXPAREL should not be injected into the spine, joints, or veins.
The active ingredient in EXPAREL:
- Can affect your nervous system and your cardiovascular system
- May cause an allergic reaction
- May cause damage if injected into your joints.
The iovera° system is used to destroy tissue during surgical procedures by applying freezing cold. It can also be used to produce lesions in peripheral nervous tissue by the application of cold to the selected site for the blocking of pain. It is also indicated for the relief of pain and symptoms associated with osteoarthritis of the knee for up to 90 days. In one study, the majority of the patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee experienced pain and system relief beyond 150 days.1 The iovera° system’s “1×90” Smart Tip configuration (indicating one needle which is 90 mm long) can also facilitate target nerve location by conducting electrical nerve stimulation from a separate nerve stimulator. The iovera° system is not indicated for treatment of central nervous system tissue.
Important Safety Information
The iovera° system is contraindicated for use in patients with the following: Cryoglobulinemia; Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria; cold urticaria; Raynaud’s disease; open and/or infected wounds at or near the treatment line. Potential complications: As with any surgical treatment that uses needle-based therapy, there is potential for temporary site-specific reactions, including but not limited to: bruising (ecchymosis); swelling (edema); inflammation and/or redness (erythema); pain and/or tenderness; altered sensation (localized dysesthesia). Typically, these reactions resolve with no physician intervention. Patients may help the healing process by applying ice packs to the affected sites, and by taking over-the counter analgesics.
