Company to host conference call today at 8:30am ET
DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Neos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEOS), a fully-integrated pharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing, and commercializing innovative modified-release products using its proprietary microparticle, drug delivery technology, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 and provided a business update.
“Our ADHD business grew 9% in prescription volume in the third quarter compared to the previous quarter of 2018 and we reported that the net revenue per pack for both Adzenys XR-ODT and Cotempla XR-ODT was $108. This compares to $95 and $89 respectively for the prior quarter. This improvement in net revenue per pack resulted in part from the programs that we are just beginning to implement to accelerate our path to profitability,” said Jerry McLaughlin, Chief Executive Officer of Neos Therapeutics. “With our ADHD products providing a solid and growing base of business, and the additional financial flexibility from our recently completed financing and debt restructuring, we look forward to advancing our whole business and expanding our development pipeline and commercial portfolio. We were pleased to have recently announced the licensing of a pipeline candidate for the treatment of sialorrhea and plan to continue this momentum into 2019.”
