TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 2, 2021

TORRANCE, Calif., Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmaus Life Sciences, Inc. (OTC: EMMA), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company and leader in the treatment of sickle cell disease, today announced financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2021. As a result, the company is now current in its Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reporting obligations.

"With the filing of our delinquent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for 2020 and the first two quarters of 2021, we are now current and compliant with SEC requirements," said Dr. Yutaka Niihara, M.D., M.P.H., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We very much appreciate the patience and support of our long-term stockholders and other investors and are now on a footing to file our future SEC reports in a timely manner."

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2021
Net revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2021 increased by 5% to $11.8 million compared to the same period in 2020. When compared to the first quarter of 2021, net revenues increased by 22%. The increase in net revenues in the second quarter of 2021 was primarily attributable to bulk order purchases in the second quarter and recovery from the temporary disruptions in sales related to the COVID-19 pandemic and weather-related supply chain interruptions that affected certain key customers in the first quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses for the first half of 2021 increased by $1.3 million, or 12%, to $12.1 million from $10.8 million for the half of 2020, primarily as a result of increased selling expenses and research and development expenses of $0.5 million and $1.4 million, respectively. The increase in selling expenses was due to compensation attributable to the company's in-house sales team. The increase in research and development expenses was attributable to the Pilot/Phase 1 study of the company's prescription grade L-glutamine oral powder to treat diverticulosis and the preclinical development of the IRAK4 inhibitor, under the company's previously announced collaboration agreement with Kainos Medicine, Inc.

Operating loss for the first half of 2021 was $1.1 million compared to $0.4 million for the first half of 2020. The operating loss for the half of 2021 was attributable to the increase in operating expenses as noted above.

Net loss for the first half of 2021 was $5.9 million compared to a net loss of $4.0 million for the first half of 2020. The increase in net loss for the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020 was primarily a result of increases of $1.2 million in other expenses and $0.7 million in loss from operations as discussed above.

Total net cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities decreased by $0.1 million for the first half of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. Cash and cash equivalents were $1.7 million as of June 30, 2021 compared to $2.5 million as of December 31, 2020.

Trading and Quotation of the Company's Common Stock
The company has applied to the OTC Markets Group for the resumption of quotations of its common stock on the OTCQX tier now that it is current in its SEC reporting, which application is under review by the OTC Markets Group.  In the meantime, quotes for the common stock continue to be available on the OTC Pink tier.

2021 Annual Stockholders Meeting 
The company intends to hold its next Annual Stockholders Meeting in the coming months to elect directors, to vote on certain other matters and to review operating results for 2020 and the interim period in 2021.
