Non-GAAP Net Income for full-year 2020 was $44.2 million and reflects GAAP net income excluding stock-based compensation, non-cash amortization of intangible assets, one-time expenses related to the CEO transition were incurred in 2020, and the non-recurring financial impact related to the discontinuation of the marketing of BUNAVAIL.

Cash Position: As of December 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were approximately $111.6 million, compared to $63.9 million as of December 31, 2019. The total cash flow generation over 2020 of $47.7 million includes operating cash generation of $25 million, $3.4 million in proceeds from the exercise of options, and net proceeds of $19.6 million from the draw down in May 2020 of $20 million from our existing debt facility, partially offset by $0.2 million used to repurchase shares in the quarter.

Financial Guidance

The Company expects full year 2021 total net sales of $170 - $180 million, including full year 2021 BELBUCA net sales of $155 - $165 million. These estimates incorporate the expected impact in Q1 2021 from the winter storms in the South-Central region, which affected some of the Company’s most productive territories. Total operating expenses are expected to be in the range of $115 - $120 million, as the Company continues to invest to support the growth of its brands, and EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $40 - $50 million in 2021. The Company expects to continue being operating cash flow positive throughout 2021.

“I’m proud of how the BDSI team really pulled together, and also thrived, during 2020 in what was a challenging year for the industry due to the pandemic. I would like to recognize the efforts and contributions of all BDSI employees. I have great confidence that, with the strength of this team, high-growth brands, and a strong balance sheet, BDSI will continue to drive long-term shareholder value,” stated Jeff Bailey.

CAUTIONARY NOTE ON FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release and any statements of employees, representatives, and partners of BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (“BDSI”) related thereto contain, or may contain, among other things, certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties. Such statements may include, without limitation, statements with respect to BDSI’s plans, objectives, projections, expectations and intentions and other statements identified by words such as “projects,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “intends,” “plans,” “potential” or similar expressions. These statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of BDSI’s management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including those detailed in BDSI’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Actual results (including, without limitation, the expectations for total company net sales, BELBUCA net sales, operating expenses, EBITDA and operating cash flows in 2021) may differ materially from those set forth or implied in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that are subject to change based on various factors (many of which are beyond BDSI’s control) including the risk that the current coronavirus pandemic impacts on our supply chain, commercial partners, patients and their physicians and the healthcare facilities in which they work, and our personnel are greater than we anticipate, as well as those set forth in our 2019 annual report on Form 10-K filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and subsequent filings. BDSI undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future presentations or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes information about certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, including non-GAAP net income and EBITDA. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Non-GAAP net income adjusts for one-time and non-cash charges by excluding the following from GAAP net income: stock-based compensation expense, non-cash amortization of intangible assets, amortization of certain warrant discount costs, and the financial impact of certain one-time items that are non-recurring, including the financial impact of the debt refinancing in 2019, the discontinuation of marketing of BUNAVAIL, and costs associated with the CEO transition in 2020.

EBITDA excludes net interest, including both interest expenses and interest income, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation and amortization.

The Company's management and board of directors utilize these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's performance. The Company provides these non-GAAP measures of the Company's performance to investors because management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with the Company's results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, are useful in identifying underlying trends in ongoing operations. However, non-GAAP net income and EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures as indicators of operating performance. Further, non-GAAP net income and EBITDA should not be considered measures of our liquidity.

A reconciliation of certain GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included in this press release.
