Osiris Therapeutics Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results: Revenue Up 32% Over Previous Quarter

COLUMBIA, Md.--()--Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIR), the leading stem cell company focused on developing and marketing products in wound care, orthopedic and sports medicine markets announced today its financial results for the second quarter of 2014.

Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Increased product revenue for the quarter to $13.3 million - a 151% increase over Q2 2013 and a 32% increase over previous quarter.
  • Held gross margin steady at 78% – gross profit increased 172% over Q2 2013 and 32% over previous quarter.
  • Completed the quarter with a loss from continuing operations (excl. non-cash items) of $66,000.
  • Obtained Medicare coverage in 10 states, representing 27% of Medicare-insured lives.
  • Published manuscript in the International Wound Journal from Osiris’ multi-center (n=20), randomized, controlled clinical trial, Protocol 302, which demonstrated overwhelming efficacy of Grafix® compared to control in the closure of diabetic foot ulcers over 12 weeks (62% vs. 21.3%, p=0.0001, n=97).
  • Agreed on path forward with FDA to complete a Biologics License Application for Grafix in order to obtain additional claims and indications.
  • Added several new sizes to the Grafix product line, giving health care providers the ability to optimally match Grafix to the wound size, reduce overall treatment costs and eliminate concerns regarding product waste. Grafix is well-positioned to remain a cost effective option within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services bundled payment system.

“It is very encouraging that the quarter-over-quarter revenue growth of 32% was largely driven by our new wound care sales team,” said Lode Debrabandere, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Osiris. “Revenue growth and bottom line improvement were impressive while we continue to invest and differentiate our products scientifically, clinically and through regulatory strategies.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

Product revenues during the second quarter of 2014 were $13.3 million, compared to $5.3 million during the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 151%.

Gross profit was $10.4 million during the second quarter of 2014 and $3.8 million during the same period of 2013. The net loss from overall continuing operations was $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 after recognizing the net $1.3 million non-cash loss in market value of stock received from the Mesoblast transaction and income taxes of $130,000. As of June 30, 2014, Osiris had $80.9 million of cash, investments and trade receivables.
