While our overall portfolio experienced growth during the third quarter, we believe there is opportunity for even better performance in the future as integration activities are completed and our investments in the next generation development programs for Makena and an expanded label for Feraheme progress toward FDA approvals and launches, said William Heiden, AMAGs chief executive officer. With our business continuing to generate strong cash flows, we will maintain our focus on executing on the opportunities we have today, line extension approvals in the future, as well as continued portfolio expansion through acquisitions and licensing transactions.

3Q15 Business Highlights and Recent Developments

Makena net sales totaled $65.2 million in the third quarter of 2015, representing 36% growth over the corresponding period in the prior year.(3) The growth in sales was driven by a 42% increase in volume partially offset by a decrease in net revenue per injection due to higher growth in the Medicaid versus commercial segment.

Sales of Feraheme

(ferumoxytol) injection returned to growth, increasing 3% to $23.2 million in the third quarter of 2015, compared with $22.5 million in the same period last year. Sales of MuGard grew 16% in the third quarter of 2015 over the same period last year.

The company closed on the acquisition and financing of CBR, the worlds largest stem cell collection and storage company, on August 17, 2015. The CBR business recorded $14.5 million of non-GAAP revenue for the six-week period between closing and September 30, 2015.(1) On a pro forma basis (as if AMAG had acquired CBR at the beginning of the third quarter of 2015), total CBR revenue was $29.3 million, compared with $33.0 million in the third quarter of 2014, with the decrease being partially attributable to new customer discounts in the third quarter of 2015.(4)

During the third quarter of 2015, the company announced plans to further expand its growing maternal health portfolio by entering into an exclusive option agreement with Velo Bio, LLC, a privately held life sciences company. The agreement gives the company the option to acquire the global rights to an orphan drug candidate in clinical development for use in the treatment of severe preeclampsia, an area of high unmet need in pregnant women.

The Company recently announced start-up activities for a head-to-head, Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating Feraheme in adult patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA). The study marks a step forward on the pathway to potentially broaden the use of Feraheme beyond the current chronic kidney disease (CKD) indication to include all adult IDA patients who have failed or cannot tolerate oral iron treatment. The company expects to begin enrolling patients in the trial in the first quarter of 2016, with potential approval of a supplemental new drug application for a broader IDA indication and launch in 2018.

The company advanced its next generation development programs for Makena seeking to enhance the product for patients and their healthcare providers. As previously disclosed, the company has filed for approval of a single-dose, preservative-free version of Makena, with anticipated approval in the fourth quarter of 2015. In addition, the company is developing a device for subcutaneous administration of Makena by an auto-injector. The company has an exclusive agreement in place with a device partner whose technologies are covered by multiple issued patents, and has other approved products in its portfolio. AMAG is also developing a longer-acting formulation of Makena.
