Journey Medical Corporation (“Journey” or the “Company”) is a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company that primarily focuses on the selling and marketing of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”)-approved prescription pharmaceutical products for the treatment of dermatological conditions. The Company’s current product portfolio includes seven branded and two authorized generic prescription drugs for dermatological conditions that are marketed in the U.S. The Company acquires rights to products and product candidates by licensing or otherwise acquiring an ownership interest in, funding the research and development of, and eventually commercializing, the products through its field sales organization.

As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the Company was a majority-owned subsidiary of Fortress Biotech, Inc. (“Fortress” or “Parent”).

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2024, the Company had $24.1 million in cash and cash equivalents as compared to $27.4 million of cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2023.

On December 27, 2023, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with SWK Funding LLC (“SWK”). The Credit Agreement provides for a term loan facility (the “Credit Facility”) in the original principal amount of up to $20.0 million. On the closing date, the Company drew $15.0 million. The remaining $5.0 million may be drawn upon the Company’s request within 12 months after the closing date. Loans under the Credit Facility (the “Term Loans”) mature on December 27, 2027, and bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the three-month term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) (subject to a SOFR floor of 5%) plus 7.75%. The interest rate resets quarterly. Interest payments began in February 2024 and are paid quarterly. Beginning in February 2026, the Company is required to repay a portion of the outstanding principal of the Term Loans quarterly in an amount equal to 7.5% of the principal amount of funded Term Loans.

On December 30, 2022, the Company filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-269079), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on January 26, 2023. This shelf registration statement covers the offering, issuance and sale by the Company of up to an aggregate of $150.0 million of the Company’s common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, warrants, and units (the “2022 Shelf”). In connection with the 2022 Shelf, the Company entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) relating to shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company may offer and sell up to 4,900,000 shares of its common stock, from time to time, under the Sales Agreement. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company issued and sold 289,744 shares of common stock under the 2022 Shelf, generating net proceeds of $1.5 million. At March 31, 2024, 3,861,553 shares remain available for issuance under the 2022 Shelf.

The Company regularly evaluates market conditions, its liquidity profile, and financing alternatives, including out-licensing arrangements for its products, to enhance its capital structure. The Company may seek to raise capital through debt or equity financings to expand its product portfolio and for other strategic initiatives, which may include sales of securities under either the 2022 Shelf or a new registration statement or drawing on the SWK Credit Facility. The Company cannot make any assurances that such additional financing will be available and, if available, the terms may negatively impact the Company’s business and operations. The Company’s expectations are based on current assumptions, projected commercial sales of products, clinical development plans and regulatory submission timelines, which may be uncertain and may not emerge as expected. Additionally, as a result of recurring losses, substantial doubt exists about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of at least twelve months from the date of issuance of these financial statements.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the ordinary course of business. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
