  • Our operating results in the first quarter of 2016 include $3.7 million in research and development costs, compared to $2.6 million in the same period in 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined and reconciled to GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $2.8 million and $1.7 million, respectively.
  • Adjusted earnings per fully diluted share (as defined and reconciled to GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $0.02 and $0.00, respectively.
  • As a result of the fluctuation in foreign exchange rates during the first quarter of 2016, we recorded a non-cash gain in the amount of $1.6 million related to the foreign currency translation of our intercompany loans to three of our wholly owned subsidiaries.
  • The Company filed three abbreviated new drug applications, or ANDAs in the first quarter of 2016 with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • The Company received two product approvals in the first quarter of 2016 from the FDA.
  • The Company launched Cefotan® (Cefotetan disodium for Injection) and lidocaine 5% ointment in March of 2016.

Teligent's President and Chief Executive Officer, Jason Grenfell-Gardner, stated, "The Teligent team had a strong start to 2016. We received approval from the FDA for two products in the first quarter. We launched Cefotan® (Cefotetan disodium for injection) and lidocaine 5% ointment in March and anticipate launching desoximetasone ointment USP 0.25% during the second quarter. With these product launches, we now market nine products in sixteen presentations in our own label in the US generic topical market, and another four products in nineteen presentations in the US injectable market as well as eighteen products in thirty-four presentations in the Canadian injectable market. Our partner received approval for flurandrenolide cream, a product we developed for them and we anticipate manufacturing that product for our partner in the coming weeks."

Mr. Grenfell-Gardner continued, "During the first quarter of 2016, Teligent submitted three ANDAs to the FDA bringing our total number of ANDAs pending at the FDA to thirty-four. Based on IMS Health data as of February, 2016, the current total addressable market of these pipeline ANDAs is estimated at $1.5 billion, excluding our three remaining partnered submissions. Notably, approximately 75% of the total addressable market in our pipeline relates to submissions filed in GDUFA Year 3 or later. Our recent approvals and the continued increased rate of review of our pending applications at the FDA, we believe, is evidence that the implementation of the GDUFA is working. We also have four applications pending with Health Canada for our Canadian injectable business."

"We have also made significant progress on our facility expansion in Buena, New Jersey, to support our increased activity. The renovation and expansion of the facility is on track with construction work already started and long lead-time equipment ordered for delivery later this year."

"Revenue from the Teligent portfolio of injectable and topical products was $9.2 million for the quarter, a 13.5% increase over the same quarter last year. This growth has been driven largely by our entry into the specialty generic injectable market. In the first quarter of 2016, just over 30 percent of our revenue was driven by our Teligent injectable products in both the United States and Canada compared to zero in the first quarter of 2015. The team continues to focus on the execution of our TICO strategy to expand our specialty generic pharmaceutical product portfolio in the topical, injectable, complex, and ophthalmic markets."
