WAYNE, Pa., Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyla Life Sciences (OTCQX: ZCOR) ("Zyla"), a commercial-stage life sciences company, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 including net sales from commercial products: SPRIX® (ketorolac tromethamine) Nasal Spray, the SoluMatrix® products, VIVLODEX® (meloxicam), TIVORBEX® (indomethacin) and ZORVOLEX® (diclofenac), INDOCIN® (indomethacin) suppositories, INDOCIN® oral suspension and OXAYDO® (oxycodone HCI, USP) tablets for oral use only –CII.
"The second quarter was our first full period with sales from all seven of our products, including the five new products acquired at the end of January, which resulted in net product sales of $22.0 million, almost triple the second quarter 2018 results, and positive cash flow of $1.7 million," said Bob Radie, president and chief executive officer of Zyla. "In addition, our second quarter sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative costs remained in line with those expenses for the second quarter of 2018, demonstrating our ability to substantially increase our net product sales while keeping our expenses the same. With this second quarter performance, we believe that we are on track to achieve net product sales of between $80 and $85 million for 2019."

2019 Second Quarter Financial Results
- Cash Position: As of June 30, 2019, Zyla had cash and restricted cash totaling $12.5 million. Cash generated from operating activities for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $2.6 million.
- Net Product Sales: Net product sales were $22.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $7.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was largely due to the addition of the five acquired products at the end of January 2019.
- Cost of Sales (excluding product rights amortization): Cost of sales was $14.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was driven by higher product sales as a result of the five new products acquired at the end of January, the revaluation of inventory in connection with the reorganization and the buyout of a royalty obligation associated with SoluMatrix products.
- G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $7.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $6.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was attributable to administrative expense of $1.5 million which was partially offset by a decrease in post-marketing study fees related to ARYMO® ER (morphine sulfate) extended-release tablets for oral use —CII and OXAYDO, as well as a decrease in salary expense due to reduced headcount.
- S&M Expenses: Sales and marketing expenses were $9.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $9.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
- R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were essentially zero for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This decrease was driven by a discontinuation of R&D programs that did not directly support the growth of Zyla's commercial business.
- Interest Expense: Interest expense was $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $3.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
- Net Loss: Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $19.6 million compared to a net loss of $12.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
