(NASDAQ: PLXP) (“PLx” or the “Company”), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on its clinically-validated and patent-protected PLxGuard™ drug delivery platform to provide more effective and safer products, with its lead products VAZALORE™ 325 mg and VAZALORE™ 81 mg (referred to together as “VAZALORE”), announced today certain financial and operational results for the three months and full year ended December 31, 2020. Highlights of, and certain events subsequent to, the fourth quarter of 2020 include: Received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approval of its supplemental new drug applications (“sNDAs”) for its lead products, VAZALORE 325 mg and VAZALORE 81 mg, the first-ever liquid-filled aspirin capsules;Completed a $63 million financing of 7,875,000 shares of common stock, offered at a price of $8.00 for the launch of VAZALORE; Entered into an $18 million private placement in November 2020; andVAZALORE commercial launch planned for the third quarter 2021. “We are delighted to receive FDA approval of the sNDAs for both dose strengths and are excited to launch this breakthrough product to the medical community and to patients who can benefit from a reliable and predictable antiplatelet therapy,” stated Natasha Giordano, President and Chief Executive Officer of PLx. “The successful $63 million financing provides the capital needed to commercialize VAZALORE. Our experienced leadership team is well prepared to execute our strategy, and this funding will enable us to launch the product successfully,” concluded Giordano. Public Offering On March 5, 2021, the Company completed an underwritten public offering in which PLx issued and sold 7,875,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $8.00 per share. The gross proceeds to the Company from this offering were $63 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company. Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results The Company recognized no revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $24,000 for the fourth quarter of 2019. All the revenue recognized in 2019 was attributable to work performed under an award of a National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) grant, which came to an end in the second quarter of 2020. Research and development expenses were $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. This increase reflected the expiration of raw materials combined with higher regulatory costs supporting the filing of the supplemental new drug applications in October 2020. General and administrative expense totaled $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. This decrease was due to lower pre-launch marketing costs combined with lower conference and related travel costs due to COVID-19 restrictions. Other (expense) income totaled $4.3 million of other expense and $1.8 million of net other income in the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease was largely attributable to the non-cash change in fair value of warrant liability primarily due to the fluctuation of the price of the Company’s common stock, combined with lower net interest expense, which was impacted by a lower principal debt balance and lower interest rates. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $8.5 million, or ($0.87) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.3 million, or ($0.25) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. The fourth quarter of 2020 included a non-cash loss of $4.2 million, or ($0.44) per share, related to the change in fair value of warrant liability and $0.5 million, or ($0.05) per share, of Series A and Series B convertible preferred stock dividends. The fourth quarter of 2019 included a non-cash gain of $1.9 million, or $0.20 per share, related to the change in the warrant liability and $0.3 million, or ($0.03) per share, for preferred stock dividends related to the Series A convertible preferred stock. Full Year 2020 Financial Results For the year ended December 31, 2020, total revenues were $0.03 million, compared with $0.6 million for the prior year. All the revenue recognized in 2020 and 2019 was attributable to work performed under a federal grant from the NIH, which came to an end in the second quarter of 2020. Research and development expenses totaled $4.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $4.7 million in the prior year, reflecting continued product development and manufacturing activities for VAZALORE. This decrease was due to 2020 activities, which included the bioequivalence study to provide data for the sNDA filing, stability and validation work, compared to manufacture, packaging, stability, and analytical costs related to the registration batches in 2019. General and administrative expenses totaled $9.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $10.0 million in the prior year. The decrease was due to lower compensation-related expenses combined with savings from COVID-19 restrictions on conference and travel costs. Other (expense) income totaled $1.8 million of other expense for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $6.3 million of other expense in the prior year. The change is primarily attributable to the non-cash change in fair value of warrant liability primarily due to the fluctuation of the price of the Company’s common stock, combined with lower net interest expense due to lower interest rates and lower principal debt balance. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $16.9 million or ($1.74) per basic and diluted share compared to net loss of $34.3 million, or ($3.84) per share for the prior year. Full year 2020 included non-cash expense of $1.4 million, or ($0.15) per share, as a result of a change in the fair value of the warrant liability and $1.7 million, or ($0.18) per share, of Series A and Series B convertible preferred stock dividends. Full year 2019 included $13.7 million or ($1.54) per share, for the beneficial conversion feature and preferred stock dividends related to the $15 million Series A convertible preferred stock financing completed in February 2019. Full year 2019 also included a non-cash expense of $5.7 million, or ($0.64) per share as a result of a change in the fair value of the warrant liability. On November 16, 2020, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement for the sale of units comprised of shares of common stock and a warrant to purchase shares of common stock in a private placement that resulted in gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $18 million, before deducting placement agent and other offering expenses, for the issuance of 4,755,373 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase up to an additional 5,230,910 shares of common stock for a per unit price of $3.787. The private placement closed on November 18, 2020. The warrants become exercisable on the date of issuance, have an exercise price of $4.31 per share and will expire five years from the date of issuance. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $22.4 million.
