LANGHORNE, Pa., Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

To our Alliqua Shareholders:

I hope you have seen our recent exciting announcements that we believe drove the increase in our market capitalization and liquidity over the past couple of months. Based on the positive response to that news, we continue to be encouraged about the potential these transactions have to create longer-term value for our shareholders. On behalf of our Board of Directors, please allow me to explain in further detail.

First, on May 7, 2018, we announced the completion of an asset sale to Celularity Inc. of our property, assets and rights relating to Alliqua’s advanced biologic wound care business, UltraMist® Therapy System and other therapeutic ultrasound platform products. This transaction allowed Alliqua to strengthen our balance sheet and focus on maximizing the value of our remaining assets.

In early 2018, we retained HC Wainwright to run an extensive process to determine the best way to maximize the value of our remaining assets for the benefit of our shareholders. After reviewing proposals from close to 50 companies and evaluating 15 company management presentations, on October 11, 2018 we announced the signing of a merger agreement with Adynxx, Inc., a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing a proprietary platform of non-opioid therapies for the treatment of pain. Adynxx was recently awarded a $5.7M grant by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to support the clinical development of the company’s lead product candidate, brivoligide for postoperative pain. Adynxx issued a press release announcing this grant award on December 13, 2018.  Given Adynxx’s impressive stockholder base, world-class management team and exciting pipeline of product candidates to treat pain and inflammatory diseases, we believe that this merger could create tremendous value for our shareholders. We estimate this transaction will close in Q1 of 2019. Alliqua’s shareholders will continue to hold their shares in this new entity post-closing of the transaction.

As we announced on November 28, 2018, prior to closing the merger with Adynxx, Alliqua intends to spin off its contract-manufacturing subsidiary Aquamed Technologies, and merge the business with TO Pharmaceuticals to establish a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing cannabinoid-based therapies. Potential applications for these therapies include FDA regulated clinical indications and select over-the-counter (OTC) consumer wellness markets. The recently passed Farm Bill will clearly enhance the resulting company’s ability to use hemp-based CBD (cannabidiol) for the OTC portfolio. The new company, TO Pharma, is expected to trade on Nasdaq and we estimate the transaction will close in Q1 of 2019. If this transaction closes as planned, Alliqua shareholders will be issued new equity in TO Pharma, allowing them to participate in this fast growth market of FDA approved cannabis-based therapies.

Finally, after satisfying transaction expenses related to the Adynxx and TO Pharma mergers and all of our other financial commitments, we intend to pay a special dividend to shareholders in the range of $1.00 to $1.20 per share. We anticipate the record date will be just prior to the close of the Adynxx merger and the dividend will be paid within 30 days following the close of the transaction. Taking into account both merger transactions, our intent continues to be to return all of the unused capital back to shareholders. Given the time that it has taken to evaluate and execute two separate transactions, the projected cash dividend is slightly lower than our original projection at the time of the asset sale to Celularity in May of 2018. Considering the combined value of two merger transactions and the cash dividend, we believe we have maximized our working capital to provide meaningful value for our shareholders in multiple ways.

Yes, we have been busy at Alliqua with one goal in mind: maximizing shareholder value. As an Alliqua shareholder, if both transactions close as planned, you will have equity in two exciting companies and of course will be entitled to receive the intended cash dividend.

Thanks for your interest in Alliqua Biomedical.

Alliqua BioMedical Inc. and Adynxx, Inc. Announce Merger Agreement to Create NASDAQ-listed Clinical-Stage Pharmaceutical Company with a Focus on Pain and Inflammation http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/792/alliqua-biomedical-inc-and-adynxx-inc-announce-merger-agreement-to-create-nasdaq-listed-clinical-stage-pharmaceutical-company-with-a-focus-on-pain-and-inflammation Fri, 12 Oct 2018 07:00:00 -0400 http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/792/alliqua-biomedical-inc-and-adynxx-inc-announce-merger-agreement-to-create-nasdaq-listed-clinical-stage-pharmaceutical-company-with-a-focus-on-pain-and-inflammation

LANGHORNE, Pa. and SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (Nasdaq:ALQA) and Adynxx, Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company, today announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which the stockholders of Adynxx would become the majority owners of Alliqua’s outstanding common stock on a fully-diluted basis. The proposed merger will create a public clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing a platform of first-in-class, disease-modifying, non-opioid therapies for the treatment of pain.  Adynxx’s lead product candidate, brivoligide for the reduction of postoperative pain, is intended to provide long-term pain relief and reduced opioid usage with a single administration at the time of surgery in a group of patients with a greater risk of experiencing increased and prolonged pain following surgery.

“We are excited about creating multiple ways for our shareholders to maximize value with Alliqua,” said Dave Johnson, CEO of Alliqua.  “First, as announced in May, we intend to make a special cash dividend to our stockholders before the merger. Second, following an extensive review of strategic alternatives, Alliqua’s Board of Directors has determined that the signing of our definitive agreement with Adynxx will allow our stockholders the opportunity to enjoy value appreciation in their equity holdings. Finally, we are currently exploring alternatives for our 16,500 square foot GMP custom hydrogel manufacturing facility in Langhorne, PA to maximize value for our shareholders.”

“With the ongoing opioid crisis in the United States, there is a critical need for novel and effective non-opioid therapeutics to treat pain and reduce opioid usage,” noted Rick Orr, CEO of Adynxx. “Following this transaction, our goal is to accelerate the development of brivoligide to benefit patients that would otherwise experience greater pain and higher levels of opioid usage following surgery.  We also plan to build a robust pipeline of novel therapeutics for pain and inflammation through development of our earlier-stage internal programs, our ongoing discovery collaboration leveraging artificial intelligence, and additional in-licensing activities.”

"We believe moving into the public markets will allow Adynxx to rapidly advance brivoligide and create significant value for shareholders,” added Dennis Podlesak, Adynxx Chairman and Partner of Domain Associates. “The benefits of the merger, combined with the strength of the management team, will also position the company to create additional value through potential pipeline expansion with a strategic focus on pain and inflammatory diseases."

The results of Adynxx’s Phase 2 studies conducted in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty suggest that a single administration of brivoligide prior to surgery can reduce both pain with walking and pain at rest following surgery, shorten the period of time needed to achieve mild postoperative pain and reduce the need for postoperative opioids in subjects that are high scorers on the pain catastrophizing scale (PCS), all with a very favorable safety profile.  The clinical profile of brivoligide in high scorers on the PCS will be prospectively evaluated in upcoming Phase 2 clinical studies in total knee arthroplasty and mastectomy. Each trial will involve approximately 130 subjects scoring 16 or greater on the PCS.  Both studies are designed to provide guidance for the planned Phase 3 pivotal studies to be initiated after meetings with regulatory authorities. The proposed indication for brivoligide is the treatment of postoperative pain in patients that score 16 or greater on the PCS.

The proposed merger remains subject to certain conditions, including approval by Alliqua’s and Adynxx’s stockholders.

About the Proposed Merger

The merger is structured as a stock-for-stock transaction whereby all of Adynxx’s outstanding shares of common stock and securities convertible into or exercisable for Adynxx’s common stock will be converted into Alliqua common stock and securities convertible into or exercisable for Alliqua common stock.  Under the exchange ratio formula in the merger agreement, immediately after the merger the former Adynxx securityholders are expected to own approximately 86% of the aggregate number of shares of the Alliqua common stock issued and outstanding following the consummation of the merger, and the existing stockholders of Alliqua are expected to own approximately 14% of the aggregate number of shares of the Alliqua common stock issued and outstanding following the consummation of the merger.  Under certain circumstances further described in the merger agreement, the exchange ratio may be adjusted in a manner that would reduce the percentage of the aggregate number of post-merger shares of Alliqua common stock held by the existing stockholders of Alliqua.

Upon closing of the transaction, Alliqua will be renamed Adynxx, Inc. and will be headquartered in San Francisco, California under the leadership of Adynxx’s current management team. Prior to closing, Alliqua will seek stockholder approval to conduct a reverse split of its outstanding shares to satisfy listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market. The combined company is expected to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under a new ticker symbol. The merger agreement has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of each company. The transaction is expected to close by the first quarter of 2019, subject to approvals by the stockholders of each company and other customary closing conditions.  

H.C. Wainwright & Co. is acting as Alliqua’s financial advisor in the transaction and MTS Securities, LLC is acting as financial advisor to Adynxx.  Haynes and Boone, LLP is serving as legal counsel to Alliqua and Cooley LLP is serving as legal counsel to Adynxx with respect to the transaction.

About Adynxx

Adynxx, Inc., located in San Francisco, California, is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing a potentially transformative technology platform addressing pain at its molecular roots – treating the development of pain following surgery or trauma and established chronic pain syndromes. Adynxx`s approach is to transform pain management by approaching pain as a disease rather than a symptom. For more information, visit www.adynxx.com

About Brivoligide

Brivoligide (AYX1) is an investigational drug intended to reduce acute post-surgical pain with a single administration at the time of surgery. It acts by locally inhibiting EGR1 activity at the time of surgery or trauma in neurons critical to pain sensation, switching off the sequence of events leading to exacerbated pain after surgery, including pain with movement. EGR1 is a transcription factor transiently upregulated in the spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia at the time of surgery or trauma. During this short period of upregulation, EGR1 triggers waves of gene transcription and subsequent protein expression that change neuronal properties, establishing mechanical hypersensitivity and leading to long-term pain arising from a single traumatic incident.

About the Pain Catastrophizing Scale

The Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) is a validated and sensitive 13-item clinical tool, developed in 1995, which assesses the three domains of the catastrophizing construct: rumination, helplessness and magnification. Each item is rated on a zero to four-point scale, with the total score ranging from zero to 52.  Patients with a score of 16 or higher on the PCS are more likely to experience inadequate pain relief following surgery and represent 25-35% of all patients undergoing surgery.  The relationship between PCS score and pain has been extensively documented and more than 600 papers have been published on use of the PCS in acute and chronic pain populations.  Elevated scores on the PCS may reflect altered descending pain modulation neuronal networks associated with enhanced postoperative pain. The PCS can be provided to patients well in advance of surgery and easily integrated into the patient assessment and education flow to reliably identify patients suitable for brivoligide treatment. PCS data were collected in all three Phase 2 studies of brivoligide and show consistent effects in subjects with high PCS scores.

Approximately $1.65 million of the proceeds were used to partially repay Alliqua’s senior secured lender.

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter-End:

In addition to our revenue performance, we also raised non-dilutive capital during the quarter through the sale of our TheraBond product line.”

“We have updated our fiscal year 2017 revenue guidance range to reflect both the strong growth performance we have reported to-date and modestly higher growth expectations for the fourth quarter. As we bring 2017 to a close, Alliqua is focused on continuing the momentum we have seen in our business this year by driving awareness and adoption of our regenerative therapies in our key markets, while pursuing opportunities to further strengthen our balance sheet.”

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $2.1 million, compared to $5.6 million at December 31, 2016. The decrease in cash during the period was primarily driven by $9.8 million of cash used in operating activities, approximately $1.6 million of cash used to repay a portion of the Company’s long-term debt, approximately $675 thousand of cash used to pay a portion of the contingent consideration related to the Celleration acquisition and $350 thousand of cash paid to Soluble as a bridge loan in connection with the terminated acquisition. The decrease in cash during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was partially offset by $5.9 million received from net proceeds from the issuance of common stock and $3.4 million of cash received in connection with the sale of the rights to the TheraBond product franchise to Argentum.

On October 27, 2017, the Company received $1 million under an agreement with Soluble in connection with amounts advanced to Soluble by the Company in 2016 and 2017.

Shares of Common Stock Will Begin Trading on Split-Adjusted Basis on October 6, 2017

YARDLEY, Pa., Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALQA) (“Alliqua or the “Company”), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, today announced that the Company will effect a reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock at an exchange ratio of 1-for-10, after the close of business on Thursday, October 5, 2017. The Company's common stock will begin trading on split-adjusted basis on Friday, October 6, 2017 under a new CUSIP number 019621309, and will remain listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "ALQA”.

The reverse stock split was previously approved by Alliqua's stockholders at the Company’s special meeting of stockholders on September 13, 2017.  On October 2, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors approved the implementation of a reverse stock split and determined the appropriate reverse stock split to be a ratio of 1-for-10. 

Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, each ten shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.001 per share. Proportional adjustments also will be made to the shares issuable in connection with the Company’s outstanding stock options and warrants.  As a result of the reverse stock split, there will be approximately 4.9 million shares of common stock outstanding.

The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder's percentage interest in the Company's equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. Any fractional share of a stockholder resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the next whole number of shares.

Once the reverse stock split becomes effective, stockholders holding shares through a brokerage account will have their shares automatically adjusted to reflect the 1-for-10 reverse stock split.  It is not necessary for shareholders holding shares of the Company’s common stock in certificated form to exchange their existing stock certificates for new stock certificates of the Company in connection with the reverse stock split, although stockholders may do so if they wish. Stockholders should direct any questions concerning the reverse stock split to their broker or the Company’s transfer agent, Action Stock Transfer Corporation, at (801) 274-1088.

Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. Announces the Sale of TheraBond® 3D Antimicrobial Barrier Systems Product Line; Alliqua Updates Fiscal Year Outlook http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/785/alliqua-biomedical-inc-announces-the-sale-of-therabond-3d-antimicrobial-barrier-systems-product-line-alliqua-updates-fiscal-year-outlook Tue, 05 Sep 2017 07:30:00 -0400 http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/785/alliqua-biomedical-inc-announces-the-sale-of-therabond-3d-antimicrobial-barrier-systems-product-line-alliqua-updates-fiscal-year-outlook

YARDLEY, Pa., Sept. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALQA) (“Alliqua or the “Company”), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, today announced that Alliqua sold all assets associated with its TheraBond® 3D Antimicrobial Barrier Systems (“TheraBond”) product line to Argentum Medical, LLC (“Argentum”), an industry-leading manufacturer of metallic silver-based, antimicrobial wound dressings and portfolio company of Shore Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused exclusively on the health care industry.   Alliqua will use the proceeds from the sale for working capital purposes and to reduce its outstanding debt balance. As a result of this transaction, the Company's lender has agreed to defer all principal payments until January 31, 2018. 

“We are excited to announce the sale of our TheraBond product line to Argentum, which we believe represents an important strategic decision for our enterprise for two primary reasons,” said David Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Alliqua. “First, this transaction provides support to our balance sheet with an influx of capital to fund our operations. Second, the sale of our TheraBond product line aligns with our goal to focus on our core capability as a regenerative technology company and execute on our targeted sales and marketing strategy for our regenerative products, Biovance®, Interfyl™ and UltraMIST®. We have updated our fiscal year 2017 financial outlook in today’s release to reflect our business on a continuing operations basis. Alliqua’s products revenue growth profile is stronger as a result of the strategic transactions we have announced over the last year with our Sorbion and TheraBond product lines. Specifically, we expect our fiscal year 2017 guidance will reflect product revenue growth - on a continuing operations basis - in a range of 21% to 27% year-over-year.”

“Alliqua has done an excellent job establishing the TheraBond products as reliable, high-quality solutions for managing burns and other advanced wound care applications,” said Raul Brizuela, President and CEO of Argentum. “We are excited to add the TheraBond products to Argentum’s existing market leading Silverlon® silver plated nylon product portfolio, further strengthening our clinically proven and cost-effective offering for clinicians and patients in all advanced wound care settings.”

The aggregate purchase price for the TheraBond product line was approximately $3.8 million, subject to customary holdbacks for indemnification obligations and earn out payments due upon performance of certain transition services.  Net of payments to Alliqua’s senior secured lender of $1.65 million, Alliqua received proceeds of approximately $1.65 million at the closing. 

The above description of the definitive agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the definitive agreements, which Alliqua included as exhibits to its Form 8-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Fiscal Year 2017 Outlook:

The Company is updating its revenue guidance for the fiscal year 2017 period, which was last updated on August 10, 2017. For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, the Company expects total revenue, on a continuing operations basis of $18.4 million to $19.3 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 13% to 19% year-over-year.

The Company’s total revenue guidance assumes the following: 

  • The Company’s total revenue guidance, on a continuing operations basis, assumes product sales of $17.0 million to $17.9 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 21% to 27% year-over-year compared to product sales, on a continuing operations basis, of $14.1 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.
    • Revenue from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, excludes TheraBond revenue of approximately $2.0 million and excludes Sorbion revenue of $1.7 million which was recognized during the first six months of 2016. The Company’s previously stated guidance assumed approximately $2.0 million of TheraBond revenue for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017. Revenue from the sale of TheraBond products was approximately $900,000 during the first six months of 2017.
  • Contract manufacturing sales of approximately $1.4 million, compared to $2.2 million   in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

For the fiscal year 2017 the Company still expects cash burn from operations to be approximately $12.0 million, representing a decrease of approximately $6.3 million year-over-year, compared to $18.3 million in fiscal year 2016. This guidance implies an average operating burn of approximately $2 million per quarter for the last two quarters of 2017.

About Therabond:

The TheraBond product line includes contact dressings, island dressings and wraps. Based on a proprietary and patented manufacturing process, silver is bonded to the entire surface of all fibers of the TheraBond dressing. When TheraBond products are placed on the wound, bioactive ionic silver is released in the dressing at a controlled rate, promoting an optimal wound healing environment by creating an antimicrobial barrier that helps protect against infection. With its one-piece construction and unique struts between the contact and outer layers, TheraBond also enables efficient transfer of fluid and exudate away from the wound and into an outer absorptive dressing, while providing rapid, sustained antimicrobial protection. Alliqua acquired the TheraBond product line in connection with its purchase of the outstanding equity interest of Choice Therapeutics, Inc. on May 5, 2014.

“We were pleased to achieve 34% product revenue growth during the quarter, driven by 106% growth in sales of our Biologic products, and strong system sales in our UltraMIST franchise, said David Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Alliqua BioMedical. Our organization has been focused on executing on our commercial strategies, which include targeting specific markets for our Biologics and UltraMIST franchises, raising awareness within the medical community on the features and benefits of our products through educational events, and leveraging our enhanced hybrid sales organization.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $2.3 million, compared to $5.6 million at December 31, 2016.

Included in cash used in operating activities is approximately $700 thousand of payments related to the terminated acquisition of Soluble. The decrease in cash during the six months ended June 30, 2017 was partially offset by $2.5 million in net proceeds received in connection with the Company’s private placement offering on February 27, 2017 and $3.3 million in net proceeds received in connection with the close of a public offering of its common stock on April 3, 2017.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present these non-GAAP measures because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry.

Q1’17 Product revenue from continuing operations increased 28% year-over-year, led by Biologics growth of 197% year-over-year

YARDLEY, Pa., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (Nasdaq:ALQA) ("Alliqua" or "the Company"), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

First Quarter 2017 Summary:

  • Total revenue from continuing operations increased 16% year-over-year to $4.6 million.
  • Product revenue from continuing operations increased 28% year-over-year to $4.4 million.
  • Gross margin was 64%, compared to 60% in the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss decreased by $1.8 million, or 36% year-over-year, to ($3.2) million.         

First Quarter 2017 Operating Highlights:

  • On February 28, 2017, the Company announced a private placement of approximately $2.8 million, which was led by one of Alliqua’s strategic investors and included participation from a member of the Company’s Board of Directors, as well as other accredited investors. Under the terms of the private placement, the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 5,540,000 shares of its common stock at the price of $0.50 per share.
  • On February 28, 2017, the Company announced the termination of its agreement to acquire the business of Soluble Systems, LLC (“Soluble”).
  • On March 20, 2017, the Company announced the publication of a peer-reviewed study by Honaker et al. in the academic journal, Wound Repair & Regeneration, which examined the use of UltraMIST for deep tissue pressure injuries.

Announcements Subsequent to Quarter-End:

  • On April 3, 2017, the Company announced the close of an approximately $3.8 million public offering. Under the terms of the offering, the Company agreed to sell 9,473,250 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $0.40 per share.

“Our first quarter revenue performance represents an exciting start to 2017, with 28% growth in our products business, driven by Biologics growth of 197%,” said David Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Alliqua BioMedical. “We were successful in pursuing our targeted sales strategies for our regenerative technologies. Within Biologics, for example, we saw continued success in our efforts to focus on the surgical segment of the market and enhance our hybrid selling organization by adding relationships with new independent sales agencies. Likewise, within our UltraMIST franchise, we are excited about our targeted strategy for driving growth, by focusing on the hospital outpatient market, hosting peer-to-peer education events and establishing centers of excellence.”

“Finally, in addition to our strong commercial performance in the first quarter, we also reduced our operating cash burn profile and raised important capital to support our continued growth.”

First Quarter 2017 Results:

Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Revenue Summary*
 
  Three Months Ended      
($, Thousands) March 31, Increase / Decrease  
    2017   2016 $ Change % Change  
Products $ 4,365 $ 3,404 $ 961 28 %  
Contract Manufacturing $ 229 $ 553 -$ 324 -59 %  
  Revenue, net $ 4,594 $ 3,957 $ 637 16 %  
   

Total revenue from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2017 increased by approximately $637 thousand, or 16% year-over-year, to $4.6 million, compared to $4.0 million last year.  Sales of the Company’s products – including Biovance, Interfyl, TheraBond and UltraMIST – increased by $1.0 million, or 28% year-over-year, to $4.4 million, from $3.4 million last year. Sales of the Company’s Biologics were the largest contributor to first quarter products growth.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2017 was $2.9 million, or 64% of sales, compared to a gross profit of $2.4 million, or 60% of sales, last year. Gross margin on product sales was approximately 75% in the first quarter of 2017, unchanged from last year.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2017 decreased by $1.8 million, or 17% year-over-year, to $8.7 million. The decrease in total operating expenses in the period was driven primarily by a $2.0 million decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses and a $327 thousand decrease in the fair value of the Company’s contingent consideration liability. Selling, general and administrative expenses were lower due to a reduction in compensation expense, professional fees, and other expenses due to a decrease in the Company’s number of employees. This decrease is consistent with the Company’s goal of reducing its operating expenditures. The decrease in operating expense compared to last year was partially offset by $635 thousand of expenses related to the recently terminated agreement to acquire Soluble.

GAAP loss from operations for the first quarter of 2017 was $5.8 million, compared to a loss of $8.2 million for the same period last year.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $7.0 million, or ($0.23) per diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $7.7 million, or ($0.28) per diluted share, for the same period last year. The change in GAAP net loss in the first quarter of 2017 was driven primarily by the aforementioned $2.4 million decrease in operating loss compared to the prior year. The improvement in operating loss was partially offset by a $770 thousand warrant modification expense in the first quarter of 2017 related to an amendment of the warrant issued to the Company’s creditor, and by changes in fair value of the Company’s warrant liability, which resulted in a gain of $118 thousand in the first quarter of 2017, compared to a gain of $737 thousand last year. GAAP net loss in the first quarter of 2016 also included $346 thousand of income from discontinued operations related to the Company’s sale of its sorbion product franchise.

Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2017 was $5.2 million, or ($0.17) per diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $6.7 million, or ($0.25) per diluted share, for the same period last year. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations as its reported net loss (GAAP), excluding income tax expense (benefit), stock-compensation expense, one-time charges and other non-recurring operating costs and expenses, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of contingent consideration, change in value of warrant liability, impairment charges to goodwill and other intangibles and income from discontinued operations.

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $2.4 million, compared to $5.6 million at December 31, 2016. The decrease in cash during the period was driven by $4.6 million of cash used in operating activities, approximately $0.7 million of cash used to pay a portion of the contingent consideration related to the Celleration acquisition and $350 thousand of cash provided to Soluble as a bridge loan. The decrease in cash during the three months ended March 31, 2017 was partially offset by $2.5 million of cash received in connection with the Company’s private placement offering on February 27, 2017. Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company received $3.8 million in gross proceeds in connection with the close of a public offering of its common stock on April 3, 2017.

Fiscal Year 2017 Financial Outlook:

The Company is maintaining its revenue guidance for the fiscal year 2017 period, which was last updated on April 6, 2017. For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, the Company expects total revenue of $20.4 million to $21.3 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 12% to 17% year-over-year on a GAAP basis.

The Company’s total revenue guidance assumes the following:  

  • Contract manufacturing sales of approximately $1.4 million, compared to $2.2 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. This compares to the Company’s prior guidance for contract manufacturing sales of $0.8 million in 2017. The change in expectations for contract manufacturing sales in 2017 is a result of final order volumes from the Company’s largest contract manufacturing customer. As previously reported, subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Company was notified by a customer of its contract manufacturing services of its intent not to use the Company’s contract manufacturing services going forward.
  • The Company’s total revenue guidance continues to assume product sales of $19.0 million to $19.9 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 18% to 24% year-over-year compared to product sales of $16.1 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

For the fiscal year 2017, the Company expects cash burn from operations to approximate $12.0 million, representing a decrease of approximately $6.3 million year-over-year, compared to $18.3 million in fiscal year 2016.

Conference Call:

The Company will host a teleconference at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time on May 9th to discuss the results of the quarter, and to host a question and answer session.

YARDLEY, Pa., April 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc.

Background:

Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) requires companies on The Nasdaq Capital Market to maintain a minimum bid price of US $1.00 per share. Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if a company’s shares trade below $1.00 for a period of 30 consecutive business days. When a company fails to meet the minimum bid requirement, Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides a compliance period of 180 calendar days, during which a company may regain compliance. Compliance with the minimum bid price can be achieved during any compliance period if the closing bid price of a company’s security is at least $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.

On October 12, 2016, Alliqua received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that, based upon the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company did not meet the minimum bid price of $1.00 per share required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company was provided with an initial compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until April 10, 2017, to regain compliance pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A).

A second 180 day period compliance period may be granted by Nasdaq if the Company (i) meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market (except for the minimum bid price requirement) and (ii) provides written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second 180-day compliance period.

Preliminary Q1’17 product sales increase 28% year-over-year led by biologics growth of approximately 200% year-over-year

YARDLEY, Pa., April 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (Nasdaq:ALQA) ("Alliqua" or "the Company"), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, today announced preliminary first quarter 2017 revenue results and timing and details of the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 financial results conference call.

First Quarter 2017 Preliminary Revenue Summary:

The Company expects first quarter total revenue of approximately $4.6 million, compared to revenue from continuing operations of $4.0 million last year, representing growth of approximately 16% year-over-year. The Company further estimates that sales of products were $4.4 million and that contract manufacturing sales were approximately $225,000 for the first quarter of 2017. Product revenue for the first quarter of 2017 represents growth of approximately 28% year-over-year.

“Our first quarter preliminary total revenue results were driven by strong growth in sales of our Biologics products which increased approximately 200% year-over-year,” said David Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Alliqua BioMedical. “We are pleased with our preliminary revenue results for the first quarter as they reflect continued progress toward building our capabilities as a provider of regenerative solutions. We look forward to providing the investment community with our full financial results for the first quarter and an update on our major areas of focus for 2017 during our investor call on May 9th.”

The financial information presented above is a preliminary estimate only, has not been reviewed by the Company's independent registered accounting firm and is subject to change upon completion of the review of the Company’s financial statements as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Additional information and disclosures would be required for a more complete understanding of the Company’s financial position and results of operations as of March 31, 2017.

Updated Fiscal Year 2017 Revenue Outlook:

For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017, the Company expects total revenue of $20.4 million to $21.3 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 12% to 17% year-over-year. This compares to the Company’s prior guidance of revenue in the range of $19.8 million to $20.7 million.

  • The Company’s total revenue guidance now assumes contract manufacturing sales of approximately $1.4 million, compared to $2.2 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. This compares to the Company’s prior guidance for contract manufacturing sales of $0.8 million in 2017. The change in expectations for contract manufacturing sales in 2017 is a result of final order volumes from the Company’s largest contract manufacturing customer. As previously reported, subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Company was notified by a customer of its contract manufacturing services of its intent not to use the Company’s contract manufacturing services going forward.
  • The Company’s total revenue guidance continues to assume product sales of $19.0 million to $19.9 million, representing growth in the range of approximately 18% to 24% year-over-year compared to product sales of $16.1 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. to Present New Data at the Spring 2017 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/778/alliqua-biomedical-inc-to-present-new-data-at-the-spring-2017-symposium-on-advanced-wound-care Wed, 05 Apr 2017 07:30:00 -0400 http://ir.alliqua.com/news/detail/778/alliqua-biomedical-inc-to-present-new-data-at-the-spring-2017-symposium-on-advanced-wound-care

Features Five New Poster Presentations on Interfyl™ and UltraMIST® Therapy

YARDLEY, Pa., April 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (Nasdaq:ALQA) ("Alliqua" or "the Company"), a regenerative technologies company committed to restoring tissue and rebuilding lives, will present new data at the Spring 2017 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (“SAWC”), being held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA from April 5 – 9. The company will feature five poster presentations summarizing new data and information related to its Interfyl and UltraMIST Therapy products.

"The posters we are presenting at this year’s Spring 2017 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care include patients with various co-morbidities, and together demonstrate the potential for practitioners to improve clinical outcomes through the use of our UltraMIST Therapy and Interfyl products in addition to the standard of care,” said Nino Pionati, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer of Alliqua BioMedical. “We are excited to showcase these findings during the SAWC as they lend support for our continued efforts to educate the medical community on the clinical efficacy of our regenerative therapy products.”

The following three poster presentations featured Alliqua’s UltraMIST Therapy (referred to in the presentations as noncontact low-frequency ultrasound technology or “NLFU”):

Good Vibrations: The Use of Noncontact Low-Frequency Ultrasound Therapy (NLFU) in the Treatment of Chronic Wounds in the Pediatric Population. F. Elsass

  • NLFU was used for chronic wounds in three pediatric cases. All patients achieved improvement in the wound healing as evidence by complete closure or 50% improvement within two weeks of treatment with NLFU. Decreased slough and decreased pain and/or discomfort during dressing changes were also noted.

Eradication of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and Improved Healing of Complex Chronic Wounds Using Noncontact Low-frequency Ultrasound. J. Seegmiller and C. Rash

  • NLFU was used for chronic wounds in four cases where pseudomonal infections were present. All patients failed to clear the pseudomonal infection with culture-directed antibiotics and management of underlying comorbidities, but experienced complete eradication of all pathogens with 75%-100% improvement in wound healing following 4-6 weeks of twice weekly UltraMIST therapy.             

The Use of Noncontact Low-Frequency Ultrasound in the Treatment of High Risk or Non-healing Wounds. A. Barrup and S. Hardin

  • In a retrospective review of three cases, NLFU was used as an adjunct to standard of care for wounds of varying etiologies. Despite significant co-morbidities, high risk for further amputation in subject #1, over two months without healing in subject #2, and high risk of hardware compromise due to infection in subject #3, all three patients had full or near full wound resolution with the inclusion of NLFU in their course of care.

The following two poster presentations featured Alliqua’s Interfyl Connective Tissue Matrix (referred to as human placental connective tissue Matrix or “hCTM”):

Initial Observations with Use of a Human Placental Connective Tissue Matrix (hCTM) as a Filler for Soft Tissue Defect. C. Corwin

  • Three patients being treated for chronic wounds had hCTM included in their treatment regimen. All three wounds completely closed within a few weeks. Of particular note, there was significantly decreased edema, erythema and postoperative pain compared to what was expected based on past experience with similar procedures. The diminished edema appeared to keep tension off the incision line which may have prevented dehiscence. hCTM, as a soft tissue filler, was able to remedy surgical wound defects and was associated with postoperative observations of less pain and edema than would be expected without its use in similar procedures even in patients with significant comorbidities.

Human Placental Connective Tissue Matrix (hCTM) a Pathway Toward Improved Outcomes. D. Mrdjenovich

  • A case series of 3 post-revision wound patients, with multi-factorial complications and co-morbidities were evaluated.  Response to wound care strategies that included hCTM resulted in improving the condition and stability of 3 wounds. This clinic observed viable tissue regeneration, with reduced pain, inflammation and drainage. Throughout the observation periods, all patients’ responses progressed in a steady rate toward closure with no observed set-backs. Additionally, it was concluded that increasing the frequency of hCTM application with the addition of a biological covering showed a more favorable outcome when considering rate of response.
