Evofem Biosciences Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Evofem Biosciences, Inc., (NASDAQ: EVFM) ("Evofem" or the "Company"), today reported financial results for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2021.

"We are extremely excited by the initial results of our celebrity DTC campaign, which is driving an increase in awareness of Phexxi among our target audience and substantial growth in prescriptions filled," said Saundra Pelletier, Evofem's Chief Executive Officer. "As we continue to reach more women who have had similarly negative experiences with hormonal contraception, it remains our priority to ensure that all women have access to Phexxi as a non-hormonal birth control option."

"We have achieved the goal of the first phase of our marketing strategy, to build a strong foundation of Phexxi prescribers and users. With the maturity of our marketing approach, we expect to reduce operating expenses by approximately $50 million in 2022," concluded Pelletier.

Third quarter and recent highlights include:

  • Launched "House Rules," our national direct-to-consumer (DTC) campaign with celebrity spokeswoman Annie Murphy aimed at broadening awareness and driving uptake of our hormone-free contraceptive, Phexxi® (lactic acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate) vaginal gel.
  • 94% increase in new prescriptions, 81% increase in total prescriptions and 82% increase in dispensed units of Phexxi in the six weeks after "House Rules" launched, versus the preceding six week period.
  • More than 19,000 Phexxi prescriptions were filled and more than 21,000 units were dispensed to patients during the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 48% and 44%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2021.
  • Over 10,000 healthcare providers have prescribed Phexxi to date, reflecting ongoing growth in the prescriber base.
  • 29% increase in ex-factory sales in the third quarter compared to the second quarter of 2021.
  • Numerous meetings held with key healthcare policy makers in both houses of Congress, the federal Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), the Department of Treasury and the Vice President's office to educate key policymakers on the need to update the Office of Women's Health (OWH) birth control guide.
  • Submitted the registration for Femidence™ for hormone-free, on-demand birth control to the Mexican Regulatory Agency COFEPRIS.
  • Discussions ongoing with potential global and regional partners for commercialization of Phexxi in key international markets.

Financial Results
For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Phexxi net product sales were $1.7 million. Ex-factory sales growth in the third quarter of 2021 drove a 29% increase in gross revenues as compared to the second quarter of 2021. 

Total operating expenses increased 5% to $45.1 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $43.0 million in the second quarter of 2021.

  • Cost of goods sold was $1.0 million, reflecting higher Phexxi ex-factory sales.
  • Research and development costs were $8.7 million, a 2% increase compared to the second quarter of 2021, reflecting higher enrollment in the Phase 3 EVOGUARD trial. This trial is funded in part by the proceeds from the Adjuvant convertible notes issued in 2020.
  • Selling and marketing costs were $30.5 million, a 12% increase compared to the second quarter of 2021 due primarily to higher media expenses related to the "House Rules" DTC marketing campaign.
  • General and administrative costs were $5.0 million, a 23% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to reductions in payroll-related expenses, including stock-based compensation and headcount.

As a result, loss from operations was $43.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Total other expense, net, was $30.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, and mainly included a $29.5 million change in fair value as a result of mark-to-market adjustments related to the convertible notes issued under the April 2020 agreement and $1.2 million in interest expense.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $74.1 million, or $(0.48) per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents were $14.9 million at September 30, 2021. In addition, at September 30, 2021, $9.0 million in restricted cash from the Adjuvant notes was available for use.

Subsequent Material Event
In October 2021, Evofem strengthened its balance sheet with $10 million in gross proceeds from the sale of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock to an institutional investor.
