Insmed Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Insmed Incorporated (Nasdaq:INSM), a global biopharmaceutical company focused on the unmet needs of patients with rare diseases, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 and provided a business update.

Business Update

"Throughout 2017 we have remained committed to our mission of transforming the lives of patients with rare diseases.  We continue to focus on the execution and evaluation of our phase 3 CONVERT study for which we continue to anticipate top-line results in September plus or minus one month.  If the study meets the primary endpoint, we intend to complete preparation for a U.S. regulatory filing with the FDA, under Subpart H, for the treatment of patients with refractory NTM," said Will Lewis, president and chief executive officer of Insmed. "Our pre-commercialization activities are also accelerating, as is our assessment of the regulatory pathway beyond the U.S. with a particular focus on Japan.  We are also moving ahead with our planning for life cycle management for ALIS and advancing our pipeline."

Second Quarter Financial Results

For the second quarter of 2017, Insmed reported a net loss of $44.7 million, or $0.72 per share, compared with a net loss of $36.6 million, or $0.59 per share, for the second quarter of 2016.

Research and development expenses were $26.9 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $23.9 million for the second quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to an increase in expenses related to INS1007 and higher compensation and related expenses due to an increase in headcount partially offset by decreases in ALIS manufacturing expenses.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2017 were $16.6 million, compared with $12.3 million for the second quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to higher expenses related to our pre-commercial planning activities for ALIS and higher compensation and related expenses due to an increase in headcount, as compared to the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Other Financial Highlights

As of June 30, 2017, Insmed had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $91 million. The Company's operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 were approximately $44 million, and its cash-based operating expenses (as defined below) for the second quarter of 2017 were approximately $38 million. Insmed ended the second quarter of 2017 with approximately $55 million in debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) results, this earnings release includes cash-based operating expenses, a non-GAAP financial measure, which Insmed defines as total operating expenses excluding stock-based compensation expense and depreciation expense. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is presented in the table attached to this press release.

Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to both management and investors in analyzing our ongoing business and operating performance. Management believes that providing non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, allows investors to view our financial results in the way that management views financial results.  Management does not intend the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, this non-GAAP financial measure may differ from similarly named measures used by other companies.

About Insmed

Insmed Incorporated is a global biopharmaceutical company focused on the unmet needs of patients with rare diseases.
