-- Conference call today at 8:30 a.m. ET --

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacira BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCRX), the industry leader in its commitment to non-opioid pain management and regenerative health solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2023.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues of $169.5 million
  • Net product sales of $135.1 million for EXPAREL, $29.3 million for ZILRETTA, and $4.4 million for iovera°
  • Net income of $25.8 million, or $0.56 per share (basic) and $0.51 per share (diluted)
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $54.3 million

See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” below.

“We were pleased to see EXPAREL year-over-year growth rates improve as the quarter progressed, with a meaningful uptick in June. Solid year-over-year growth continued in July, leaving us optimistic for a stronger second half of the year given improving market conditions and rising demand for joint replacements and other elective surgeries. We also expect to benefit from several ongoing growth initiatives in the second half of 2023, such as continued volume expansion for existing and new 340B customers, as well as new initiatives with oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Plastics, Outpatient, and Sports Management.” said Dave Stack, chairman and chief executive officer of Pacira.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

  • Total revenues were $169.5 million in the second quarter of 2023, versus $169.4 million reported for the second quarter of 2022.
  • EXPAREL net product sales were $135.1 million in the second quarter of 2023, versus $137.0 million reported for the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter volume growth of 4 percent was offset by a lower net selling price primarily due to the implementation of 340B Drug Pricing and other contracted relationships. There were 64 selling days in each of the second quarters of 2023 and 2022.
  • ZILRETTA net product sales were $29.3 million in the second quarter of 2023, versus $27.4 million reported for the second quarter of 2022.

  • Sales of bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension to third-party licensees were $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2023, versus $1.0 million reported for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Total operating expenses were $129.6 million in the second quarter of 2023, versus $138.2 million reported for the second quarter of 2022.
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses were $18.8 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $26.3 million in the second quarter of 2022. R&D expenses included $9.3 million and $5.1 million of product development and manufacturing capacity expansion costs in the second quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $64.9 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $65.0 million in the second quarter of 2022.
  • GAAP net income was $25.8 million, or $0.56 per share (basic) and $0.51 per share (diluted) in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $19.9 million, or $0.44 per share (basic) and $0.40 per share (diluted), in the second quarter of 2022.
  • Non-GAAP net income was $36.0 million, or $0.78 per share (basic and diluted) in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $24.0 million, or $0.53 per share (basic) and $0.51 per share (diluted), in the second quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $54.3 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $44.9 million in the second quarter of 2022.
  • Pacira ended the second quarter of 2023 with cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale investments (“cash”) of $220.8 million. Cash provided by operations was $43.5 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $29.8 million in the second quarter of 2022.

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 gross margin, non-GAAP cost of goods sold, non-GAAP research and development (R&D) expense, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per common share, non-GAAP weighted average diluted common shares outstanding, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and adjusted EBITDA, because these non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of items that management believes affect comparability or underlying business trends.

These measures supplement the company’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, R&D expense and SG&A expense outlook for 2023 and to help make managerial decisions. In management’s opinion, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of the company's financial statements by providing greater transparency into the ongoing operating performance of 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. The non-GAAP measures presented here 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.

About Pacira

Pacira BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCRX) is committed to providing non-opioid pain management options to as many patients as possible to redefine the role of opioids as rescue therapy only. The company is also developing innovative interventions to address debilitating conditions involving the sympathetic nervous system, such as cardiac electrical storm, chronic pain, and spasticity. Pacira has three commercial-stage non-opioid treatments: EXPAREL® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension), a long-acting local analgesic currently approved for infiltration, fascial plane block, and as an interscalene brachial plexus nerve block for postsurgical pain management; ZILRETTA® (triamcinolone acetonide extended-release injectable suspension), an extended-release, intra-articular injection indicated for the management of osteoarthritis knee pain; and ioveraº®, a novel, handheld device for delivering immediate, long-acting, drug-free pain control using precise, controlled doses of cold temperature to a targeted nerve. To learn more about Pacira, including the corporate mission to reduce overreliance on opioids, visit www.pacira.com.

About EXPAREL® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension)

EXPAREL is indicated for single-dose infiltration in patients 6 years of age and older to produce postsurgical local analgesia and in adults 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 multivesicular liposomes, 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 multivesicular liposome 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 in the pivotal trials. Additional information is available at www.EXPAREL.com.

Important Safety Information about EXPAREL for Patients

EXPAREL should not be used in obstetrical paracervical block anesthesia. In studies in adults where EXPAREL was injected into a wound, the most common side effects were nausea, constipation, and vomiting. In studies in adults where EXPAREL was injected near a nerve, the most common side effects were nausea, fever, and constipation. In the study where EXPAREL was given to children, the most common side effects were nausea, vomiting, constipation, low blood pressure, low number of red blood cells, muscle twitching, blurred vision, itching, and rapid heartbeat. EXPAREL can cause a temporary loss of feeling and/or loss of muscle movement. How much and how long the loss of feeling and/or muscle movement depends on where and how much of EXPAREL was injected and may last for up to 5 days. EXPAREL is not recommended to be used in patients younger than 6 years old for injection into the wound, for patients younger than 18 years old for injection near a nerve, and/or in pregnant women. Tell your health care provider if you or your child has liver disease, since this may affect how the active ingredient (bupivacaine) in EXPAREL is eliminated from the body. EXPAREL should not be injected into the spine, joints, or veins. The active ingredient in EXPAREL can affect the nervous system and the cardiovascular system; may cause an allergic reaction; may cause damage if injected into the joints; and can cause a rare blood disorder.

About ZILRETTA® (triamcinolone acetonide extended-release injectable suspension)

On October 6, 2017, ZILRETTA was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as the first and only extended-release intra-articular therapy for patients confronting osteoarthritis (OA)- related knee pain. ZILRETTA employs proprietary microsphere technology combining triamcinolone acetonide—a commonly administered, short-acting corticosteroid—with a poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) matrix to provide extended pain relief. The pivotal Phase 3 trial on which the approval of ZILRETTA was based showed that ZILRETTA significantly reduced OA knee pain for 12 weeks, with some people experiencing pain relief through Week 16. Learn more at www.zilretta.com.

Indication and Select Important Safety Information for ZILRETTA

Indication: ZILRETTA is indicated as an intra-articular injection for the management of OA pain of the knee. Limitation of Use: The efficacy and safety of repeat administration of ZILRETTA have not been demonstrated.

Contraindication: ZILRETTA is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to triamcinolone acetonide, corticosteroids or any components of the product.

Warnings and Precautions:

  • Intra-articular Use Only: ZILRETTA has not been evaluated and should not be administered by epidural, intrathecal, intravenous, intraocular, intramuscular, intradermal, or subcutaneous routes. ZILRETTA should not be considered safe for epidural or intrathecal administration.
  • Serious Neurologic Adverse Reactions with Epidural and Intrathecal Administration: Serious neurologic events have been reported following epidural or intrathecal corticosteroid administration. Corticosteroids are not approved for this use.
  • Hypersensitivity reactions: Serious reactions have been reported with triamcinolone acetonide injection. Institute appropriate care if an anaphylactic reaction occurs.
  • Joint infection and damage: A marked increase in joint pain, joint swelling, restricted motion, fever and malaise may suggest septic arthritis. If this occurs, conduct appropriate evaluation and if confirmed, institute appropriate antimicrobial treatment.

Adverse Reactions: The most commonly reported adverse reactions (incidence ≥1%) in clinical studies included sinusitis, cough, and contusions.

About iovera°®

The iovera° system uses the body’s natural response to cold to treat peripheral nerves and immediately reduce pain without the use of drugs. Treated nerves are temporarily stopped from sending pain signals for a period of time, followed by a restoration of function. Treatment with iovera° works by applying targeted cold to a peripheral nerve. A precise cold zone is formed under the skin that is cold enough to immediately prevent the nerve from sending pain signals without causing damage to surrounding structures. The effect on the nerve is temporary, providing pain relief until the nerve regenerates and function is restored. Treatment with iovera° does not include injection of any substance, opioid, or any other drug. The effect is immediate and can last up to 90 days. The iovera° system is not indicated for treatment of central nervous system tissue. Additional information is available at www.iovera.com.

Indication and Select Important Safety Information for iovera°®

Indication: iovera° applies freezing cold to peripheral nerve tissue to block and/or relieve pain for up to 90 days. It should not be used to treat central nervous system tissue.

Important Safety Information

  • Do not receive treatment with iovera° if you experience hypersensitivity to cold or have open and/or infected wounds near the treatment site.
  • You may experience bruising, swelling, inflammation and/or redness, local pain and/or tenderness, and altered feeling at the site of application.
  • In treatment area(s), you may experience damage to the skin, skin darkening or lightening, and dimples in the skin.
  • You may experience a temporary loss of your ability to use your muscles normally outside of the treatment area.
  • Talk to your doctor before receiving treatment with iovera°.

(1) On a non-GAAP basis, the "if-converted" method was modified so that interest expense is not added back to the numerator, and the denominator would only include any incremental shares that would be issued for the conversion premium as the company intends to settle the principal amount of its 2025 convertible senior notes in cash. For all periods presented, non-GAAP diluted net income per share did not include any incremental shares related to the conversion premium.
