NeuroDerm Announces Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results and Provides a Corporate Update
REHOVOT, Israel. – December 18, 2014 – NeuroDerm Ltd. (NASDAQ: NDRM), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing drugs for central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014 and provided a corporate update.

Recent Highlights

  • On October 29, 2014, NeuroDerm announced results of a randomized, placebo- controlled, double-blind Phase II clinical study in moderate to severe Parkinson’s disease patients. The results showed that patients who received ND0612L, the Company’s low- dose product candidate, a continuous, subcutaneously administered liquid levodopa/carbidopa (LD/CD) formulation, exhibited a clinically-significant reduction in fluctuations of plasma levodopa concentrations compared to patients receiving placebo. Compared to subjects in the placebo arm, patients receiving ND0612L also experienced a corresponding in-clinic two-hour reduction in “off” time, improved sleep, better quality of life and global clinical improvement without an increase in troublesome dyskinesia.
  • On November 13, 2014, NeuroDerm announced the pricing of its initial public offering
    (IPO) of 4,500,000 ordinary shares at a price to the public of $10.00 per share.

“The past few months have been an exciting time for NeuroDerm, highlighted with the completion of our IPO and listing of our ordinary shares on NASDAQ Global Market in November. The $39.5 million raised in the IPO enables us to execute on our goals of developing our pipeline of products that should have a significant positive impact on the life of Parkinson’s patients,” said Oded Lieberman, PhD, CEO of NeuroDerm. “In October, we announced top-line results from a Phase II study for ND0612L and preliminary, partial data from a Phase IIa study for ND0612H, and we are very encouraged by the outcomes. The data from these trials of our two lead product candidates for Parkinson’s disease show that continuous, subcutaneous dosing of ND0612, the world’s first-ever liquid formulation of levodopa, the gold standard treatment for Parkinson’s disease, overcomes the poor pharmacokinetics associated with oral therapy that often has debilitating ramifications for patients.”

Dr. Lieberman continued: “By the end of 2014, we plan to present the top-line results of the Phase IIa study of ND0612H, our high-dose product candidate, in patients with advanced Parkinson’s. Based on the interim results, we believe that ND0612H could provide an effective, subcutaneous day and night treatment option for the majority of advanced Parkinson’s disease patients who are considering invasive surgical interventions. Subsequently, we expect to initiate a pharmacokinetic study with ND0612H in the first half of 2015 followed by a Phase II study for ND0612H and Phase III studies for ND0612L in the United States and Europe upon FDA approval, in the second half of 2015.”

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2014

Research and development expenses, net were $1.3 million in the three months ended September
30, 2014 compared to $0.2 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to costs related to advancing our Phase II clinical study for ND0612L and preparing for our Phase IIa clinical study for ND0612H and ND0612L.

General and administrative expenses were $0.8 million in the three months ended September 30,
2014 compared to $0.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. The increase was primarily due to increased legal and accounting costs, associated with the IPO process.

The company reported a net loss of $3.9 million in the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $24.5 million for the same period in 2013. The loss in the three months ended September 30, 2013 was mainly due to non-cash financial expenses of $24.1 million primarily related to the fair value of the Company’s convertible loans, embedded derivatives and financial instruments.

As of September 30, 2014, the company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $4.5 million. This amount does not include the net proceeds from the Company’s IPO, which priced on November 13, 2014. The aggregate net proceeds to NeuroDerm from the IPO, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and estimated offering expenses, were $39.5 million.

About NeuroDerm
NeuroDerm is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing central nervous system (CNS)
product candidates that are designed to overcome major deficiencies of current treatments and achieve enhanced clinical efficacy through continuous, controlled administration. In Parkinson’s disease, the company has four product candidates which offer a solution for almost every Parkinson’s disease patient from moderate to the very severe stage of the disease. The company has developed a line of levodopa-carbidopa (LD/CD) product candidates administered through a small belt pump that delivers a continuous, controlled dose of LD/CD. The LD/CD line of product candidates includes: ND0612L and ND0612H, delivered subcutaneously, for moderate and for advanced Parkinson’s disease patients, respectively, and ND0680 for a subset of severe Parkinson’s disease patients whose symptoms have advanced to a more acute stage, requiring even higher doses of LD/CD. In addition NeuroDerm is developing ND0701, a novel subcutaneously delivered apomorphine formulation for patients who suffer from severe Parkinson’s disease and who do not respond well to LD/CD. NeuroDerm is headquartered in the Weizmann Science Park, Rehovot, Israel.
