- Total net revenue was $55.2 million, compared to $91.3 million for the third quarter of 2015;
- Net income totaled $190,000, or $0.00 per basic and $0.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $26.1 million, or $0.36 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015;

- Insys received FDA approval for the marketing of SyndrosTM (dronabinol oral solution), a proprietary, orally administered liquid formulation of dronabinol.
“Although Subsys volumes declined in the quarter, we are pleased to have maintained a mid-40% market share and believe the product will continue to provide a solid financial foundation for growth and to support our R&D efforts,” said Dr. John N. Kapoor, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insys Therapeutics. “We are currently awaiting DEA scheduling of Syndros, our recently FDA approved product for cancer induced nausea and vomiting and anorexia associated with weight loss in AIDS patients. We look forward to launching Syndros, our second commercial product, which we believe has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule. We remain excited about our pipeline and believe that both our spray and cannabinoid platform products will provide opportunities for future growth,” he concluded.
Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Net revenue for the third quarter of 2016 was $55.2 million compared to $91.3 million for the third quarter of 2015, a decrease of 39.5%. The results reflect a decline in Subsys prescription volumes due to softness in overall demand in the TIRF category, including Subsys, and continued pressure from third-party payers.
Gross margin was 92% for the third quarter of 2016 compared with 92% for the comparable quarter of 2015.
Sales and marketing expense was $16.7 million during the third quarter of 2016, or 30% of net revenue, compared to $19.2 million, or 21% of net revenue, for the third quarter of 2015.
Research and development expense increased to $16.5 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $12.3 million for the third quarter of 2015, as we continue to advance the multistage products in our pipeline.
General and administrative expense increased to $17.7 million for the third quarter of 2016, up from $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2015, and included a non-cash equity compensation charge of approximately $4 million in connection with the departure of a former executive.
Net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $190,000, or $0.00 per basic and $0.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $26.1 million, or $0.36 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $5.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $38.0 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. The reconciliation of net income to non-GAAP adjusted net income is included at the end of this press release.
The Company had $217.2 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term and long-term investments, no debt, and $269 million in stockholders’ equity as of September 30, 2016.
