ROCKVILLE, MD, February 25, 2021 - Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUPN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2020, and associated Company developments.

Fourth quarter 2020 net product sales were $140.7 million, 44% higher than the same period in 2019, driven by the addition of $39.5 million of net product sales from the commercial products acquired in 2020 and $3.3 million in net product sales growth from Trokendi XR and Oxtellar XR. Full year 2020 net product sales were $509.3 million, 33% higher than full year 2019, driven by the addition of $91.0 million of net product sales from the commercial products acquired in 2020 and $34.9 million in net product sales growth from Trokendi XR and Oxtellar XR.

Product Pipeline Update
SPN-812 - Novel non-stimulant for the treatment of ADHD in children and adults
•In February 2021, the Company received notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that its New Drug Application (NDA) resubmission for SPN-812 for the treatment of ADHD in pediatric patients is considered a Class I resubmission, thereby assigning a timeline of two months for review by the FDA and establishing a new Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date in early April 2021. The Company is preparing for the commercial launch of SPN-812 for the treatment of ADHD in pediatric patients in the second quarter of 2021, if approved by the FDA.
•In December 2020, the Company announced positive results from a Phase III trial in adult patients with ADHD. Assuming approval for pediatric patients, the Company plans to submit a supplemental NDA (sNDA) to the FDA for SPN-812 in adults in the second half of 2021.
SPN-830 (Apomorphine infusion pump) - Continuous treatment of motor fluctuations (“on-off” episodes) in PD
•The Company is scheduled to meet with the FDA in March 2021 in a Type A meeting to discuss the contents of the Refusal to File (RTF) letter it received in November 2020 regarding its NDA for SPN-830. In the letter, the FDA requested certain documents and reports to be submitted in support of the application. The Company believes additional testing of the device will be necessary to support the SPN-830 NDA resubmission. Supernus plans to resubmit the SPN-830 NDA after completing discussions with the FDA and the required activities for filing.
SPN-820 - Novel first-in-class activator of mTORC1
•Development activities are ongoing, including a multiple-ascending dose study in healthy volunteers, with the goal of initiating a Phase II clinical program in treatment-resistant depression by the end of 2021.
Fourth quarter and full year 2020 operating earnings were $43.0 million and $173.7 million respectively, as compared to $40.8 million and $148.6 million in the fourth quarter 2019.
Fourth quarter 2020 net earnings and diluted earnings per share were $30.8 million and $0.57, respectively, as compared to $33.1 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the same period last year.
2020 full year net earnings and diluted earnings per share were $127.0 million and $2.36 per diluted share, respectively, as compared to $113.1 million and $2.10 per diluted share, for full year 2019.
