Financial Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

Revenue

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, ADMA recognized revenues of $0.2 million, compared to $0 for the same period in 2011. Revenue in the second quarter of 2012 was primarily a result of the sales made to Biotest Pharmaceuticals pursuant to a plasma supply agreement entered into during June 2012, under which Biotest Pharmaceuticals purchases normal source plasma from ADMA’s FDA-approved Georgia facility to be used in their product manufacturing.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $0.1 million, compared to $0 for the same period in 2011. The cost of sales for the second quarter of 2012 was related to the costs associated with the sale of normal source plasma.

Operating Expenses

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 were $0.2 million, compared to $0.1 million for the same period in 2011. R&D increased for the second quarter of 2012 primarily as a result of increased manufacturing, testing and regulatory costs for ADMA’s lead product candidate, RI-001, in preparation of its upcoming Phase III clinical study.

Loss on sale of R&D inventory for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $0, compared to $1.3 million for the same period in 2011. The loss on sale of R&D inventory during the second quarter of 2011 was a result of the disposal of ADMA’s inventory of high priced, high titer plasma that it previously acquired to conduct R&D for a different product.

Plasma center operating expenses amounted to $0.4 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 were $0.7 million, compared to $0.3 million for the same period in 2011. G&A expenses increased for the second quarter of 2012 primarily as a result of the February 2012 merger costs consisting of related legal, accounting and filing fees, along with increased compensation and stock-based compensation charges.

Net Loss

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, ADMA’s net loss was $1.2 million, or $(0.26) per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $(6.79) per share, in the same period of 2011. The decrease in net loss was attributed to a loss on the sale of R&D inventory during the second quarter of 2011, compared to no loss for the comparable period of 2012, a decrease of interest expense for the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, resulting from the conversion of interest that had accrued on notes converted upon the February 2012 financing, offset by increased revenues, cost of sales and G&A expenses for the second quarter 2012, compared to no revenues, no cost of sales and lower G&A expenses for the same period in 2011. The decrease in net loss per share of $(0.26) from $(6.79) for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, was a result of a higher net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the same period in 2012 in addition to an increase in the number of shares outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in the number of shares outstanding was attributed to the conversion of preferred stock and notes payable into common stock and the issuance of common stock upon the merger and financing in February 2012.

Cash Position and Accounts Receivable

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $12.9 million and $0.2 million of accounts receivable.
