spk02: Thank you, Jonathan, and thank you to everyone listening for joining us this morning. We appreciate you joining us for our first quarter 2024 update. Starting on slide three, I'll start with a brief outline of what we'll cover during our call today. To start off, I'll review three key takeaways from today's call and discuss our initial plans to reach out to our ENT and allergy specialist physician audience with XANCE's new clinical profile, including communication of data showing strong efficacy in chronic sinusitis, which our market research indicates is a leading driver of prescribing behavior. Next, Jonathan Neely, our VP of Investor Relations and Business Development, will review our first quarter 2024 performance and our financial guidance for full year 2024. Finally, I'll return to review information about our peak net revenue estimates for XANCE and the profitability targets that we described on RxHAND's chronic sinusitis launch call in April. Then we'll wrap up the call and take your questions. Turning to slide four, we'll go into more detail in a moment, but I'd like to highlight three key takeaways from today's presentation. First, I'd like to reiterate the significance of the opportunity in front of us, which we believe has potential to reshape this business in the last three quarters of 2024 and for years into the future. Claims data suggest that chronic sinusitis is currently being diagnosed by healthcare providers at least 10 times more frequently than nasal polyps. Following our national launch meeting the week of April 8th, we have now fully engaged our sales team in our chronic sinusitis launch with training and a full set of materials. As a reminder, our plan is to launch with our current Salesforce structure armed with a new suite of chronic sinusitis promotional materials accompanied by digital and non-personal promotion efforts based on the new label and with the objective of obtaining peak year sales of at least $300 million and producing positive income from operations for full year 2025. Second, thanks to the efforts of our team, we have a significantly stronger base to build on than we did at the start of 2023. When I started as CEO, we implemented an initiative to greatly increase our operating efficiency and to stabilize expense revenue while preparing our organization to seize the greatly expanded opportunity in chronic sinusitis. we successfully met or exceeded the financial expectations we set for the last five consecutive quarters of revenue achievement, aggressive operating expense reductions, and improvements in our average net revenue per prescription. Third, the combination of expanded market opportunity and improved base business fundamentals has set up the opportunity for OptiNose to return to strong growth in 2024. We've now announced our initial guidance for full year 2024 net revenues and total operating expenses. Mindful that the full launch of the CS indication started in mid-April, we expect ExHance net revenues to increase by 20% to 34% for full year 2024 compared to full year 2023. We also believe that ExHance net revenue growth can be achieved with modest incremental operating expense increases to support promotional efforts while leveraging our existing commercial infrastructure. Turning to slide five, last week, we announced a $55 million registered direct financing, which was led by Nanta Hala and D.E. Shaw, and had participation from both new and existing healthcare-focused investors. As a result of this funding, Optinos now has cash and cash equivalents of approximately $100 million. Following on top of the recent approval of the chronic sinusitis indication, this financing is transformative for our company because, in the context of our base business plan, we now have sufficient cash runway to operate our business while servicing our debt through 2025, which is when we expect to produce income from operations for the full year. As part of the funding, we also favorably amended the terms of our debt agreement with a waiver of the going concern covenant until the filing of our December 31st, 2025 financial statements, which is expected to occur in March of 2026. Additionally, the minimum liquidity covenant will be reduced from $30 million to $20 million following the date of the first quarterly payment principle, which is due on September 30, 2025. We also extinguished $4.7 million of outstanding amendment and waiver fees, which have now been converted to equity. As a result of this financing and our revised debt agreement, Optinos is in a greatly strengthened financial position to consider multiple future opportunities for value creation, with our initial focus remaining squarely on our Ex-Hance launch plan. Turning to slide seven and our launch plan. In the second quarter of this year, we are leveraging four major tactics to launch Xhance into this major new market opportunity. These include our sales force, non-personal promotion, peer-to-peer education, and presence at medical meetings. Let's begin with our 75-person sales organization. In the second quarter, our team plans to reach approximately 7,500 target healthcare providers and make over 35,000 total sales calls. We're also supplying the field with 50% more ex-hance samples to stimulate additional physician and patient trial. In a highly symptomatic condition like chronic sinusitis, samples can be effective in facilitating new product adoption. It's still very early days for us in the field, but initial feedback has been quite positive, execution has been strong, and we expect the momentum in ex-hance prescribing to build over time with continued Salesforce engagement. We are supplementing the field force with non-personal promotion, targeting a total of 22,000 of the highest potential, largely specialty, prescribers. These tactics include digital media, search engine marketing, and social media. In the second quarter, we plan to generate 1.5 million healthcare provider impressions and over 50,000 customer engagements using this approach. We're also deploying a peer-to-peer speaker program with approximately 80 specialist prescribers familiar with both the product and the clinical trial data who are available to host educational events for their peers. During the second quarter, we plan to reach over 1,000 healthcare providers to highlight the new Ex-Ans clinical profile and discuss unmet need and diagnostic criteria, which are important considerations for facilitating appropriate patient identification in the clinic. Lastly, we're planning a strong presence at medical meetings during the second quarter, including 10 national and 20 regional events for ENTs and allergists. We have a booth where our team can interface with prescribers and are also planning to host promotional events such as product theaters with speakers. These events are aimed at disseminating our message about the recent approval and new clinical trial data, reinforcing the clinical benefits of exams, and reinforcing our leadership and visibility in the chronic sinusitis space. Taken together, these four tactical pillars are essential elements of our launch plan, I'll also remind you that we recently implemented hub services intended to increase the service level for prescribers and patients, while also resulting in overall improvement in the rate of written prescriptions that are ultimately filled and the rate at which insurance coverage and copay support are correctly applied to each prescription. Our generous copay support program will continue to facilitate patient starts, with many patients being offered $0 copays in their first month. Although many of these new initiations are not captured by IQVIA, they can help patients and providers gain personal experience with the benefits of ExHance, even if insurance coverage is still pending. We're also aware that it can often require five to seven calls on new physicians before initiation of product trials, and that successful product trials are a precursor for consistent adoption over time. We believe our planned efforts will get the ball rolling and result in gradually accelerating product uptake. All these activities in the context of our pre-existing payer access, which includes broad commercial coverage and which we expect to typically adapt to include our new indication over the first few months following approval, are expected to drive an uptick in enhanced growth this year and ultimately deliver at least $300 million in peak sales in peak year. I would like now to turn the call over to Jonathan Neely to review our financial guidance for full year 2024 and the equity offering we announced on May 9th. Jonathan.
spk03: Thank you, Rami. Turning to slide nine. We were encouraged by our first quarter 2024 financial results. Regarding revenue, Opti-Nose recognized 14.9 million of Ex-Sense net revenue in the first quarter of 2024, a 26% increase compared to first quarter 2023 net revenues of $11.8 million. As discussed on our last earnings call, strength and demand afforded us the opportunity to make gradual changes that have had a positive influence on profitability. In late 2023 and early 2024, we made gradual revisions to our co-pay assistance program and implemented new hub services. These changes have prioritized growth in profitable prescriptions and have reduced both the number and proportion of unprofitable prescriptions. The net result is evident in XANCE net revenue per prescription. Based on available prescription and inventory data purchased from third parties and on data we received directly from our hub and preferred pharmacy network, The estimated enhanced average net revenue per prescription for the first quarter of 2024 was $227 per prescription. This was a 63% increase compared to $139 of estimated average net revenue per prescription in the first quarter of 2023. In addition to the changes in copay assistance and the implementation of HUB services, we believe the disruption in services that change healthcare claims processor for our vendor that administers the enhanced copay support program hindered access to our copay benefit for uncovered patients. We believe this disruption had a favorable effect on ExanceNet revenue per prescription and expect it to be isolated to first quarter 2024. Finally, as we reported earlier, OptiNose recognized $21.7 million of SG&A plus R&D expenses in the first quarter 2024. This is approximately a $3 million or 11% decrease compared to first quarter 2023 expenses of $24.5 million. Last week, we announced our initial financial guidance for full-year 2024 ExhanceNet revenue and full-year 2024 operating expenses. In addition, given the stronger than expected performance in the first quarter of 2024, we increased our expectation for full-year 2024 ExhanceNet revenue per prescription. First, for the full year of 2024, we expect total operating expenses to be between $95 to $101 million, of which approximately $6 million is expected to be stock-based compensation. Second, we anticipate strong growth for ExpanseNet revenues given the expanded market opportunity available in CS. Our expectation for ExpanseNet revenue for full year 2024 is between $85 to $95 million. Finally, we now expect ExpanseNet revenues per prescription to exceed $230 for the full year of 2024. Previously, we expected ExpanseNet revenues per prescription to be approximately $220 for the full year of 2024. I want to turn the call back over to Rami for closing remarks. Rami?
spk02: Thank you, Jonathan. Turning to slide 13. In April, we provided a financial outlook for Exhance in chronic sinusitis that we believe we can meet or exceed within our base business. It's important to note that in the context of our base business objectives, although we're treating this as a product launch, in the short term, we're not planning significantly increased investment in our commercial infrastructure. For the time being, we plan to engage a largely specialty physician audience with our current 75-territory-sized sales team although we may consider future expansion of our sales organization to further accelerate our launch. Although the size of our sales team is remaining steady, what will be dramatically different is the message we can convey to doctors as we promote exams for a significantly larger population of approximately 3 million patients cared for in our specialty segment. Importantly, we believe that a much broader range of physicians commonly make the diagnosis of chronic sinusitis than the diagnosis of nasal polyps. This includes prescribers who are not equipped to routinely perform nasal endoscopy in office, a procedure which is often relied on to confirm a diagnosis of nasal polyps. With this in mind, we believe we can realistically achieve peak net revenues of at least $300 million and produce positive income from operations for full year 2025. Turning to slide 14, in addition to the potential within our base business, we believe there's meaningful future potential value to unlock outside of our base business plan and I'll focus on that topic to wrap up today's call. The first thing I'll highlight is the potential to expand the size of our sales organization by adding up to 40 additional sales territories. Increasing our sales reach to a larger population of specialty prescribers could push our peak year net revenue potential above our initial guidance of at least $300 million, and we will carefully consider if and when this incremental investment is appropriate. Next, we believe our product is well suited to support outreach to a primary care prescribing audience. We could pursue this opportunity either by adopting alternative selling models like digital promotion or through direct selling partnerships to access an additional 7 million actively diagnosed and treated patients with chronic sinusitis. In future, we could also invest in capital efficient approaches to activating the 20 million additional patients with chronic sinusitis who are symptomatic but not actively seeking care each year. Based on direct-to-consumer pilot data that we have, we believe the ExHance product profile is well-suited to support strong patient activation. Third, I'd like to note that to date we have not invested significant energy in establishing international partnerships for ExHance, but we have maintained patents in select major markets. These represent another potential incremental source of value. Lastly, we aim to leverage our existing infrastructure, particularly our commercial infrastructure, to generate synergies by working on additional products. OptiNose is establishing strong infrastructure, experience, and competencies in what we consider the comparatively blue ocean ENT and allergy specialty space. As we generate income from operations, which we expect for full year 25, and continue to strengthen the organization, OptiNose has potential to become the commercialization or development partner of choice for companies in this specialty space. We believe there are significant opportunities ahead to create shareholder value and, when the time is right, we will carefully consider our options and the potential to return to our successful development routes and build a pipeline of new and innovative treatments to address unmet need in our specialty arena. Turning to slide 15. Before moving to take any questions, I'd like to reiterate the significance of the opportunity in front of us, which we believe has potential to reshape our business starting in the second quarter of this year and for years into the future. We're pleased with our success in executing our pre-launch operating strategy through 2023 and the first quarter of 2024. We achieved greatly increased operating efficiency while stabilizing revenue in the comparatively niche nasal polyp indication, while preserving capital and focusing our organization on preparations to seize the opportunity created by approval of exams as the first prescription treatment for one of the most common diseases diagnosed in adult outpatient medicine. We believe the launch opportunity we are just getting off the ground coupled with our recent financing, position us well to build a profitable ENT and allergy-focused business by accessing greatly expanded net revenue potential through an efficient existing base of commercial capabilities. In addition, we believe the chronic sinusitis indication will facilitate commercial partnerships or other approaches to accessing incremental value in the primary care space that is in addition to what we can access on our own in the specialty segment. With that, I'd like to thank you for your attention and open up the call for Q&A.
spk07: As a reminder, to ask a question, please press star 11 on your telephone and wait for your name to be announced. To withdraw your question, please press star 11 again.
spk06: Please stand by while we compile the Q&A roster. And our first question comes from Thomas Flatton with Lake Street Capital Markets.
spk07: Your line is now open.
spk05: Good morning. I appreciate you guys taking the questions. I'm just trying to digest the significant upside to the average revenue per prescription, particularly in light of the comment made in the queue about the change healthcare potentially one time upside. I was just curious if you could help us maybe map out how you expect the average revenue per prescription to what the cadence is going to be over the course of the year. We're used to seeing a huge swing upward in the second quarter, but I'm not sure if we should be thinking the same way for this year. Any help there would be greatly appreciated.
spk03: Do you want to pick up the parts about change healthcare and I'll talk about the cadence?
spk02: Well, so we do believe change healthcare had an effect. But as we pointed out in our comments, Tom, it's not the only reason that we had a higher average net revenue per prescription in the first quarter of 2024 than we did in prior years. So we do think there's still a seasonal trend, if you will, where first quarter will generally be lower than subsequent quarters. However, what we've done is we've provided full-year guidance for our expected average net revenue per prescription to help give a sense of how we think that will pan out over the remainder of the year.
spk03: And so in terms of thinking about the cadence within the year relative to years prior, I don't think what we're projecting is a really significant increase in revenue per prescription moving from Q1 into the rest of the year. But we do believe that the changes that we put into the business proactively, we're going to have a positive influence on revenue per prescription on a year-over-year basis as we move through the year. But we've moved our estimate now up from approximately $220 to at least or to exceed $230 per prescription. So we still do think that there's going to be improvement within the year.
spk05: And then another thing I saw in the queue was that there was a comment that the number of covered lives that have access to XTANs decreased from 80% to 70%. I was curious if you can comment on that.
spk02: Yeah, I think that's more a consequence of the way in which we are measuring it than it is a consequence of any change in coverage. So I apologize if you took away the wrong impression there. The intent has always been, or the expectation that we had was always that our number of covered lives wouldn't change materially with the new indication. What we do expect is an improvement in the ease with which coverage can be obtained within those lives because we expect people subject to utilization management, like prior authorizations, to no longer be required to have only a nasal polyp indication, which is harder diagnosis to make and less often coded for, and now to be able to also have a chronic sinusitis indication, which is much more broadly coded for in outpatient visits.
spk03: I think historically when we talked about, you know, percentage of lives that are, you know, covered or implants that cover extants, I think we historically focused on commercial only, but I think we've moved to providing a measure that's of all insurance plans, whether it's commercial or government.
spk05: Makes sense. And then one final quick one. The samples that you're handing out, is that a full 30-day dose, or are there 30 days of doses available now, or is there a smaller quantity of drug in the samples?
spk02: No, the samples, most of the samples that we are handing out are a specific sample put up which is not a full 30 days. It's just enough to get you started and hopefully give you time to be able to receive your prescription from whichever pharmacy, including mail order, that you might be accessing.
spk05: Understood. Thanks so much. Thank you, Tom.
spk06: Thank you. One moment for our next question. Our next question comes from David Amselem with Piper Sandler.
spk07: Your line is now open.
spk00: Hi, this is Skylar on for David. Can you speak anecdotally to what you've been seeing on the payer landscape front since the expanded label? Have there been any roadblocks to getting coverage for patients without nasal polyps? And then for net revenue for Rx in the long term, how do you think that is going to evolve in the context of the wider label?
spk02: So, Skylar, thanks for your questions. I'll start with the second one. With regard to average net revenue for prescription, I don't think we view that as something that is a function of the label change. It's been very sensitive to changes we've made in our copay support program and sort of other sort of business actions, but not really a function of the indication for which the drug is prescribed. With regard to anecdotes about insurance coverage, all I can share with you is, in fact, just anecdotes. It's premature for us to have sort of broad patterns established since our launch. There just hasn't been enough elapsed time. And, of course, there are thousands of different insurance plans out there. I can't speak to all of them. I can tell you we have gotten specific anecdotal reports of the new indication being added in to prior authorization forms, exactly as we've discussed before, which is what we would expect to happen over a number of months following the approval. and I'm not aware of any adverse actions that have occurred as a result of the new indication. We do expect gradually to see the new indication added in to the current prior authorization criteria.
spk00: Got it. That's helpful. And then one more on the sales force sizing. You mentioned potential expansions in the future. Can you talk about what factors would inform that?
spk02: Yeah, I think what we're looking to see the results of our initial promotional activities. You know, and we're following it closely with fairly intense analytics. And as we get a better sense of the uplift that we're generating and sort of the drivers that are producing the best ROI, then we'll use that information to inform the magnitude and the timing of any changes we make in our promotional activities.
spk00: Got it. Helpful. Thank you.
spk07: Thank you. As a reminder, to ask a question, please press star 1-1 on your telephone. Again, that is star 1-1 to ask a question. Our next question comes from Glenn Santangelo with Jefferies. Your line is now open.
spk01: Oh, yeah. Thanks for taking my question. Hey, Rami, I also wanted to follow up in terms of what you're seeing in terms of payer coverage. It sounds like You said you're gradually seeing the new indication added. Can you give us a sense for maybe how long that will take? Because I'm trying to, you know, I thought it was going to be a relatively quick process given the payer's familiarity with the product. And I'm trying to put that into context with the full year fiscal 24 guidance and maybe the decision to leave the commercial infrastructure as is at this point in time. I guess what we're all trying to figure out is sort of the cadence of which those payer contracts can be amended and when we should start to expect some acceleration on the revenue side.
spk02: Well, so Glenn, thank you for the question. This might sound obvious, but we don't directly control the pace at which these changes are made at various insurance plans. And there are There's a small number of major PBMs and insurers, but there are thousands and thousands of insurance plans. And, you know, I have concrete examples of cases where the changes have already been made, other examples where it hasn't been made. So, you know, we are estimating that it could take, you know, in some plans a few weeks, in some plans some months for these changes, you know, ultimately to roll out. And it's one of the things that we just have to keep an eye on ourselves. We have tried to be transparent with insurers so that everyone would be fully aware of the new indication that was coming. And, you know, we've done everything we can to facilitate their ability to make those changes. But, you know, at the end of the day, it's not something we directly control. And, you know, you asked sort of, you know, when can we start a difference in revenue? We've tried to give you guidance that I think makes it clear that we're expecting, you know, an increase in revenue from this quarter, so in second quarter, we're expecting revenue to start increasing, and we expect it to increase over the remainder of the year, ultimately reaching $85 to $95 million for calendar 2024, which is meaningfully higher than 2023.
spk03: Glenn, you did ask a question about the cadence of amendment of our agreements, and I think it's not so much a cadence of amendment to the agreements. I think it's more of a cadence of the payers and their processes reflecting the contracts that largely contemplate the expanded label. They contemplate rebates whenever the product is reimbursed for FDA-approved indications that are on the label. I don't think it's a contracting discussion. I think it's more having processes that the insurers reflect the state of the label of the product and having their business processes reflect that. It's not... Not a renegotiation.
spk01: All right. Maybe just two other quick ones for me, and then I'll hop off. The total scripts in this quarter look like they were down a fair amount based on that average REB per script. I was wondering if you can sort of comment on that. And then secondly, you know, on your 300 million peak sales number, could you maybe, you know, Rami or John, put a little bit more meat behind that number and how you sort of came to that number and, you know, how we should think about that from a script and average REB per script perspective. Thanks.
spk03: Sure. So, I mean, in terms of, you know, the prescriptions on a quarterly basis, you know, I think, you know, as we described, you know, we've made some changes to our copay assistance program, you know, late in 2023 and again in early 2024 that, you know, we believe has, you know, kind of focused us on, you know, growing the profitable portion of our business and, you know, has reduced the number and proportion of unprofitable prescriptions. So, The year-over-year result, if you look at prescriptions, you're down, I think, almost 23% on a year-over-year basis. But importantly, there are prescriptions leaving the business that on net improve our revenue performance by them no longer being filled. So again, coming back to what we're here for in terms of financial performance, revenues were up 26% on a year-over-year basis.
spk02: Just to add a little bit to that, because you might have sort of missed it in the earlier comments, but we are reducing the number of unprofitable or even negative revenue prescriptions. We also have focused on growth for profitable prescriptions. So In terms of managing the business, what we're trying to do is not grow total prescriptions, but grow profitable prescriptions. The other thing I'll mention, sort of just as a reminder, is that the tracking of prescriptions by external third-party providers is imperfect. And it's always been imperfect, and it varies over time how closely it mirrors our actual numbers. But one of the things I highlighted in my earlier comments is that new initiations, which disproportionately we're trying to drive with the new launch, new initiations that have a zero dollar copay may not be captured by third party data providers at all. So it will be invisible to you.
spk03: I'll give you one last comment on the guide for the year and the implications for prescription growth and revenue per prescription growth. I think given that we've provided a range for revenues and a floor, if you will, for revenue per prescription, I think if you reverse into the math, you know, you can derive that, you know, we are expecting both prescriptions to grow on a year-over-year basis as well as, you know, revenues to grow on a year-over-year basis and along with, you know, kind of the revenue per prescription.
spk01: All right. Thank you very much.
spk02: Glenn, the last thing I'll add is you asked about the $300 million. My view is that the growth to get us from 2024 out to peak year is growth in use of the product. It's not really meaningful incremental growth in the average net revenue per prescription. There were a lot of levers to pull there sort of in the last, I don't know, say nine months or so. But in the future, primarily the growth will come from increased uptake of the product.
spk07: Perfect. Thanks a lot.
spk06: Thank you. One moment for our next question. Our next question comes from Matthew Caulfield with HC Wainwright.
spk07: Your line is now open.
spk04: Hey, good morning, guys. Thanks for taking our question, and congrats on the successful launch so far. So appreciating the specialist-focused efforts targeted towards allergists and ENTs, do you plan to share any granularity around the number of prescriptions that could be coming from the primary care segment in the coming quarters? and then maybe how that could inform any future sales efforts. Presumably, primary care could be prescribing, just not being kind of the current focus.
spk02: Yeah. So, Matt, we haven't made a decision yet about sort of how we'll report out on the sort of indicators for future growth. But as you said, our efforts right now are focused primarily on on a specialty audience. We do have some primary care physicians in our called-on universe. It's not a huge number. And we do have a larger audience for our non-personal promotional efforts. And we will, of course, be gathering data about promotional responsiveness and uptake and sort of the manner in which the product is being used in the different segments, which we'll use to inform our future efforts. But, Matt, I don't want to set an expectation that we'll be reporting anything specifically by prescriber specialty in the near future at least.
spk04: Okay, fair enough. Very helpful and very excited to see the launch. Congrats, guys.
spk02: Thanks again, Matt.
spk07: Thank you. I'm showing no further questions at this time. I would now like to turn it back to Rami Mahmoud, CEO, for closing remarks.
spk02: Great. I'd like to thank you all for joining us this morning. Appreciate your attention and help, and I hope you share our excitement in what a different place the company is in today. compared to a year or more ago. With the new approval and the new financing that we've accomplished in the last few months, we feel like we're in a much better position to really create shareholder value and to help millions of people with the disease that previously had no treatment alternatives. We look forward to getting back with you again in August to share our second quarter results.
spk07: This concludes today's conference call. Thank you for participating. You may now disconnect.
