InVivo Therapeutics Reports 2018 Year-end Financial Results and Provides Business Update

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV) today reported
financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Richard Toselli, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of InVivo,
commented, “InVivo achieved many critical and exciting milestones over
the past year. Early in 2018 we received FDA approval of our
supplemental Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) to initiate a second
pivotal study of the company’s Neuro-Spinal Scaffold™ in patients
with acute spinal cord injury (SCI), the INSPIRE 2.0 Study. In addition,
we successfully raised net proceeds of $16.5 million in 2018, which
put us in a position to focus on the initiation of the INSPIRE 2.0
Study, while implementing significant cost saving measures, which
resulted in an $11.8 million or a 48 percent decrease in our operating
expenses year over year. Finally, we continue work towards enrollment in
the INSPIRE 2.0 Study, and with five clinical sites recently activated
and now open for enrollment, we expect to begin enrollment in Q2 of this
year.”

Dr. Toselli concluded, “In addition to continued progress on the INSPIRE
2.0 Study and our fundraising activities, we are encouraged by the
prospect of building a more diversified pipeline with technologies that
align with our core competencies and fundamental interests.”

Financial Results

Operating expenses for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were
$12,767,000 and $24,593,000 respectively, representing a 48% decrease in
operating expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company
reported a net loss of approximately $23,423,000, or $4.69 per share,
compared to a net loss of approximately $26,745,000, or $20.29 per
share, for the year ended December 31, 2017. Included in results for the
years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 were non-cash losses of
$12,165,000 and $2,267,000, respectively. The loss of $12,165,000 for
the year ended December 31, 2018 can be attributed to the issuance of
the liability classified warrants in 2018 and the subsequent change in
fair value through the date of warrant exercises or reclassification to
equity. The loss of $2,267,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017 can
be attributed to the impact of the August 2017 warrant exchange and the
decrease in the fair value of derivative warrant liability primarily due
to the decrease in the fair value of the underlying common stock.
Excluding the impact of the derivative warrant liability, adjusted net
loss for the year ended December 31, 2018, was $11,258,000, or $2.25 per
share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $24,478,000, or $18.57 per
share, for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company ended the year
with $16,660,000 of cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2018.

Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share are non-GAAP financial
measures that exclude the impact of the items noted. A reconciliation of
these measures to the comparable GAAP measures is included with the
tables contained in this release. The Company believes a presentation of
these non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors,
enabling them to better understand the Company’s operations, on a
period-to-period comparable basis, with financial amounts both including
and excluding these identified items.
