Launched Jeuveau ® in the United States on May 15

Jeuveau® Experience Treatment (J.E.T.) Program Exceeds Expectations

Generated $2.3 Million in Jeuveau ® Net Revenue in Q2 2019  

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evolus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOLS), a performance beauty company with a customer-centric approach focused on delivering breakthrough products, today provided a business update and reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

On May 15, the company launched Jeuveau® with J.E.T., an exclusive program for aesthetic providers and consumers to be the first to experience Jeuveau®. J.E.T. offers providers the opportunity to receive up to three shipments of Jeuveau®. Aesthetic providers may progress through the J.E.T. program by completing activities such as filling out marketing surveys.

Key results within the first 90 days:

  • Over 5,000 aesthetic accounts enrolled in J.E.T., exceeding the company’s target by 2,000
  • Over 23,000 consumers completed J.E.T. surveys1
    ○  Approximately 25% of J.E.T. patients were neurotoxin naïve2 indicating market expansion potential
    ○  Approximately 75% were treated with a neurotoxin in the past two years. Of these, about 69% were most recently treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, 22% with Dysport®, 7% with Xeomin® and 3% undisclosed.

“The launch of Jeuveau® is off to a rapid start. Our singularity in focus, highly specialized sales force and digital platform have enabled us to exceed expectations and offer patients a compelling alternative in an established market.  In less than 90 days, Jeuveau® has been made available in over 5,000 practices across the U.S., many of which have completed multiple stages of the J.E.T. program. We are pleased that a majority of accounts who have completed J.E.T. have purchased product,” said David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to expect to achieve the number two market position within 24 months of launch.”

Other recent highlights:

  • Expanded the Board of Directors with appointment of industry veterans Peter Farrell, Ph.D. and Karah Parschauer, J.D.
  • #NEWTOX NOW $75 consumer coupon program launched July 1, designed to accelerate Jeuveau® conversion
  • Published largest aesthetics head-to-head pivotal trial comparing Jeuveau® and BOTOX® in Aesthetics Surgery Journal  
  • Received a revised positive opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) and now expect European approval in the second half of 2019

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2019, net revenue was $2.3 million and recognized upon delivery of Jeuveau® to customers. Gross margin was 71.4% and may fluctuate in the future due to various marketing programs.

GAAP loss from operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $36.0 million as compared to $16.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase in GAAP loss from operations in 2019 was primarily attributable to higher operating expenses related to the U.S. launch of Jeuveau®. This included higher personnel-related expenses as a result of hiring our U.S. sales force, building out of our corporate and commercial infrastructure and marketing expenses including the J.E.T. program.

Non-GAAP loss from operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $31.3 million as compared to $5.3 million in the second quarter of 2018. Non-GAAP loss from operations for the second quarter of 2019 was calculated as loss from operations excluding stock-based compensation of $2.5 million, expense resulting from the revaluation of the contingent royalty obligation of $1.3 million, and depreciation and amortization of $1.0 million.

Total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments were $99.9 million as of June 30, 2019.
