“Our first quarter financial and operational results, combined with our internal forecasts and the opportunities we are currently pursuing, have validated our belief that 2022 would be a ‘break-out’ year for Harrow,” said Mark L. Baum, CEO of Harrow Health. “We had a tremendous start to 2022, continuing the momentum from 2021 and the consistent record-breaking quarters our team delivered. Our first quarter results, reported today, represent our seventh consecutive quarter of record financial results, including a 43% increase in year-over-year revenues and a nearly 10% increase from the sequential quarter.

“We see ongoing organic growth in our core business; and in addition to the other value drivers identified in our Letter to Stockholders we published today, Harrow stockholders can count on our team being ready to launch AMP-100 as we approach a potential commercial launch during the first half of 2023, assuming we receive FDA approval on our PDUFA target action date of October 16, [] 2022.

“We remain confident in Harrow’s future as we implement our growth plan, build a profitable business, and serve our customers with products and services that are being chosen by an ever-expanding group of leading U.S. ophthalmologists, optometrists, hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers, which has allowed us to continue to take an increasing share of the market for several large categories of ophthalmic pharmaceutical products in the United States.”

Non-GAAP Figures

In addition to the Company’s results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), which are presented and discussed above, management also utilizes Adjusted EBITDA and Core Results, unaudited financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the Company’s financial results and performance and to plan and forecast future periods. Adjusted EBITDA and Core Results are considered “non‘GAAP” financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the SEC. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company’s results of operations and the factors and trends affecting its business. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and Core Results provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s performance because (i) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making; (ii) they exclude the impact of non-cash or, when specified, non-recurring items that are not directly attributable to the Company’s core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the Company’s core operating performance; and (iii) they are used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help analyze the Company’s results. However, Adjusted EBITDA, Core Results, and any other non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company and the way they are calculated may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures or the calculations of the same non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the Company’s competitors.

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income attributable to Harrow Health, Inc., excluding the effects of stock-based compensation and expenses, interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, investment loss, net, gain or forgiveness of debt, and, if any and when specified, other non-recurring income or expense items. Management believes that the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA is net (loss) income attributable to Harrow Health, Inc. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations and should not be considered as an alternative to gross profit or net (loss) income as a measure of operating performance or to net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing, or financing activities as a measure of ability to meet cash needs.

The following is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, to the most comparable GAAP measure, net (loss) income, for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and for the same period in 2021:

  For the Three Months Ended March 31,
  2022   2021
GAAP net (loss) income $ (2,438,000 ) $ 217,000  
Stock-based compensation and expenses   2,016,000     855,000  
Interest expense, net   1,792,000     513,000  
Income taxes   -     -  
Depreciation   419,000     464,000  
Amortization of intangible assets   404,000     40,000  
Investment loss, net   2,747,000     4,154,000  
Gain on forgiveness of debt [(1)]   -     (1,967,000 )
Adjusted EBITDA $ 4,940,000   $ 4,276,000  
[(1)] Gain on forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loan administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Core Results

Harrow Health Core Results, including core gross margin, core net income, core operating income, core EPS (basic and diluted), and core operating margin, exclude all amortization and impairment charges of intangible assets, excluding software development costs, net gains and losses on investments and equity securities, including equity method gains and losses and equity valued at fair value through profit and loss (“FVPL”), and gains/losses on forgiveness of debt. In other periods, Core Results may also exclude fair value adjustments of financial assets in the form of options to acquire a company carried at FVPL, obligations related to product recalls, certain acquisition related items, the integration and divestment related income and expenses, divestment gains and losses, restructuring charges/releases and related items, legal related items, gains/losses on early extinguishment of debt or debt modifications, impairments of property, plant and equipment and software, as well as income and expense items that management deems exceptional and that are or are expected to accumulate within the year to be over a $100,000 threshold.
