SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on developing and commercializing products in various therapeutic areas, including allergy, opioid overdose, respiratory and inflammatory disease, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022 and provided an update on recent corporate developments.
In October, the Company announced that it had initiated a process to explore a range of strategic and financing alternatives and had retained an investment bank to assist in evaluating certain alternatives focused on maximizing stockholder value. Potential alternatives include a sale, partnership, distribution or other agreement regarding one or both of the Company’s commercial products, a sale, merger, or reverse merger of the company, and/or seeking additional financing. As of today, the Company is engaged in communications with third parties regarding one or more possible transactions.
“The strategic process is well under way with the goal of maximizing shareholder value and preserving cash resources,” stated David J. Marguglio, CEO of Adamis. “Concurrently, we have implemented significant expense reduction measures including employee headcount reductions and pausing all product development programs. While engaged in this process, we continue to work closely with our commercial partner to continue the momentum of the ZIMHI launch and the return of SYMJEPI to the market.”
There can be no assurance regarding the schedule for completion of the strategic review process, that this strategic review process will result in the Company pursuing any transaction or that any transaction, if pursued, will be completed.
Business Updates in Q3 2022
ZIMHI ™ (naloxone) Injection
- Following its introduction to the market at the end of March, our commercial partner continues to make steady progress on the ZIMHI commercial launch plan.
- Unit sales increased 90% in the third quarter compared to the second quarter of 2022.
SYMJEPI ® (epinephrine) Injection
- In March 2022, the Company announced that manufacturing issues at one of its contract manufacturers, Catalent Belgium, led to a voluntary recall of four lots of SYMJEPI. Following corrective and preventative actions, Catalent resumed operations at its Belgium facility in November 2022.
- Assuming no additional interruptions or delays, the Company anticipates having SYMJEPI relaunched and commercially available before the end of the first quarter of 2023.
- The Company announced that following a review of interim data, its Phase 2/3 clinical trial examining the effects of Tempol in COVID-19 treatment failed to achieve its primary endpoint and further development of Tempol has been halted.
- The Company is continuing to liquidate the assets of the former US Compounding business and, although there are no assurances, the Company expects to receive additional proceeds which could range from approximately $3 to $4 million between now and the end of the first quarter of 2023.
Q3 2022 Financial Highlights
- Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was approximately $1.5 million compared to approximately $760,000 in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 98%. The increase in revenues was primarily due to sales of ZIMHI, the absence of sales for SYMJEPI resulting from the March 2022 product recall and the recognition of deferred revenue under our commercial distribution agreement, offset by cost of the SYMJEPI recall.
- Operating expense (selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses) for the third quarter of 2022 was approximately $4.5 million compared to $9.4 million in the third quarter of 2021, a decrease of 52%. The decrease was primarily due to lower development spending for Tempol and ZIMHI, decreases in legal and advisory fees, and a reversal of 2022 accrued bonus expenses.
- Net loss for the combined (continued and discontinued) operations for the third quarter of 2022 was approximately $4.4 million compared to a net loss of $12.4 million in the third quarter of 2021, a 64% decrease.
- Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2022 were approximately $2.4 million.

Forward Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include those that express plans, anticipation, intent, contingencies, goals, targets or future development and/or otherwise are not statements of historical fact. These statements relate to future events or future results of operations, including, but not limited to the following statements: statements concerning the outcome of the Company’s process reviewing strategic and financing alternatives and the Company’s ability to enter into and complete any strategic transaction; the Company’s beliefs concerning the SYMJEPI manufacturing hold and product recall and the timing of resumption of manufacturing and commercial sales of SYMJEPI; the Company’s beliefs concerning the progress and success of the commercial launch of ZIMHI; the Company’s beliefs concerning the ability of its products and product candidates to compete successfully in the market; the Company’s ability to successfully commercialize the products and product candidates, itself or through commercialization partners; future development and regulatory actions concerning the Company’s products and product candidates; the Company’s beliefs concerning the benefits, enforceability, and extent of intellectual property protection afforded by patents and patent applications that it owns or has licensed and its rights under applicable license agreements, and its ability to enforce its patents and other intellectual property rights against third parties; statements about the Company’s strategies, objectives, future goals and achievements; and other statements concerning our future operations, activities and financial results. We may not achieve one or more of the future milestones or achievements anticipated by forward looking statements in this press release either within the anticipated time periods or at all. Statements in this press release concerning future events depend on several factors beyond the Company’s control, including the absence of unexpected developments or delays, market conditions, future liabilities and obligations, and the outcomes of the Company’s strategic process. These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, which may cause the Company’s actual results to be materially different from the results anticipated by such forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements concerning our anticipated future activities assume that we have sufficient funding to support such activities and continue our operations and planned activities. There can be no assurance regarding the schedule for completion of the Company’s strategic review process, that this strategic review process will result in the Company pursuing any transaction or that any transaction, if pursued, will be completed. In addition, obtaining funding if available, or the terms of a strategic transaction, could result in significant dilution to our existing stockholders. If we do not obtain required funding, our cash resources will be depleted in the near term and we would be required to materially reduce or suspend operations, which would likely have a material adverse effect on our business, stock price and our relationships with third parties with whom we have business relationships. If we do not have sufficient funds to continue operations, we could be required to seek bankruptcy protection, dissolution or liquidation, or other alternatives that could result in our stockholders losing some or all of their investment in us. We cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and except as may be required by applicable law, we undertake no obligation to update or release publicly the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements or to reflect events or circumstances arising after the date of this press release.
