DANBURY, Conn. and WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“As we approach the FDA action date for Tyvaso DPI, our company is focused on supporting United Therapeutics in their planned commercial launch,” said Michael Castagna, PharmD, Chief Executive Officer of MannKind Corporation. “Our endocrine business unit execution has resulted in Afrezza net revenue growth of 21% vs. the first quarter 2021 and we continue to add sites and patients into our Afrezza pediatric trial, INHALE-1.”

Total revenues were $12.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, reflecting Afrezza net revenue of $9.8 million and collaborations and services revenue of $2.2 million. Afrezza net revenue increased 21% compared to $8.1 million in the first quarter of 2021 as a result of wholesaler inventory ordering patterns for the first quarter of 2021, which was adversely impacted as wholesalers decreased inventory levels, plus price, which included more favorable gross-to-net deductions. Collaborations and services revenue decreased $7.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2021 primarily due to the completion of the R&D Services associated with our collaboration with United Therapeutics (“UT”). In August 2021, we entered into a commercial supply agreement (“CSA”) with UT. Revenue associated with the CSA is deferred as of March 31, 2022 and will be recognized over the period when commercial product is sold to UT. The deferred revenue balance associated with the CSA increased by $7.1 million in the first quarter to $25.7 million as of March 31, 2022.

Afrezza gross profit for the first quarter of 2022 was $7.5 million compared to $3.8 million in the same period of 2021, an increase of $3.8 million, or 99%, which was driven by an increase in Afrezza sales and a decrease in cost of goods sold. The Afrezza cost of goods sold decreased by $2.0 million, or 47%, compared to the same period in 2021, primarily as a result of the absorption of manufacturing-related costs due to the manufacturing of a second product. Afrezza gross margin in the first quarter of 2022 was 77% compared to 47% for the same period in 2021.

Cost of revenue – collaborations and services increased by $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021 primarily due to an increase in costs of manufacturing activities in preparation for supplying commercial product to UT.

Research and development expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $3.5 million compared to $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. This $1.1 million increase was mainly related to costs incurred for research and development activities for our product pipeline, including a phase 1 clinical trial for inhaled clofazimine.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $20.7 million compared to $17.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. This $3.3 million increase was primarily attributable to an enhanced primary care physician-focused promotional campaign that began in the fourth quarter of 2021, Afrezza territory restructuring costs, as well as promotional and patient support services expenses to support Afrezza sales growth.

For the first quarter of 2022, the gain on foreign currency translation (for insulin purchase commitments denominated in Euros) was $2.0 million compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. The fluctuation was due to a change in the U.S. dollar to Euro foreign currency exchange rate.

Interest expense on financing liability was $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 and represented interest incurred on the sale lease-back transaction for our manufacturing facility in Danbury, CT.

Interest expense on debt for the first quarter of 2022 was $2.7 million compared to $6.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. This decrease of $3.7 million was primarily due to a milestone payment obligation that was achieved during the first quarter of 2021, partially offset by an increase in interest expense related to our senior convertible notes.

The net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $26.0 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to $12.9 million in the first quarter of 2021, or $0.05 per share. The $13.1 million increase in the net loss was primarily due to a decrease in revenues from collaboration and services and an increase in the cost of revenue for collaborations and services. Revenue associated with the CSA is deferred as of March 31, 2022 and will be recognized over the period when commercial product is sold to UT. The increase in cost of revenue for collaborations and services was primarily due to an increase in costs of manufacturing activities in preparation for supplying commercial product to UT.
