Preliminary Financial Information

Kindred Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) is currently finalizing its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. While complete financial information and operating data for this period are not yet available, based on the preliminary unaudited internal financial statements, the Company expects to record approximately $2.0 million in net product revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018, and further expects that, as of December 31, 2018, its unaudited cash balances were approximately $73.9 million.

The preliminary financial data above in this Current Report on Form 8-K is preliminary and may change, is based on information available to management as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is subject to completion by management of the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. There can be no assurance that the Company’s final net product revenues or cash position for this period will not differ from these estimates after the Company completes its year-end closing and review procedures. The preliminary financial data has been prepared by, and is the responsibility of, our management. KMJ Corbin & Company LLP has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the preliminary financial data. Accordingly, KMJ Corbin & Company LLP does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto, and you should not draw any conclusions based on the foregoing estimates and should not place undue reliance on these preliminary estimates. The preliminary estimate of net product revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 is not necessarily indicative of net product revenues to be achieved for any future period. Complete fiscal year results will be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. The Company assumes no duty to update these preliminary estimates except as required by law.

Item 8.01Other Events.

On January 17, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing that it intends to offer and sell shares of its common stock, subject to market and other conditions, in an underwritten public offering. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

The Company recently updated its business information as follows:

Mirataz® (mirtazapine transdermal ointment), the Company’s transdermal drug for the management of unintended weight loss in cats, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) in May 2018. The product became commercially available to U.S. veterinarians on July 9, 2018. Approximately 33% of veterinary clinics in the United States purchased Mirataz in the second half of 2018, with approximately 56% of veterinary clinics placing re-orders in that period.

The FDA has approved the safety and effectiveness technical sections for Zimeta™ (dipyrone injection) for the control of pyrexia (fever) in horses. The FDA has indicated it does not have any additional questions or requests from the Company regarding the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (“CMC”) technical section. The pre-approval inspection at the contract manufacturer of Zimeta IV took place in July 2018, which was successful. The responses to the findings identified during an inspection in April 2018 at the contract manufacturer of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (“API”) dipyrone have been submitted to the FDA. The FDA indicated it would conduct a reinspection of the API manufacturer.

On December 21, 2017, the European Medicines Agency (the “EMA”) accepted the Company’s Mirataz submission for review, and the Company is currently responding to the EMA’s questions. The Company expects that Mirataz will be approved by the EMA in 2019. Regulatory approval is subject to the typical risks inherent in such a process.

Neither the disclosures on this Current Report on Form 8-K nor the attached press release shall constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
