Rehovot, Israel, and Hoboken, NJ – November 13, 2023 — Kamada Ltd. (NASDAQ: KMDA; TASE: KMDA.TA), a commercial stage global biopharmaceutical company with a portfolio of marketed products indicated for rare and serious conditions and a leader in the specialty plasma-derived field, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.
“We are highly encouraged with our strong financial and operational momentum during the first nine months of the year,” said Amir London, Kamada’s Chief Executive Officer. “With total revenues of $106.1 million, which represent year-over-year growth of 26%, and adjusted EBITDA of $17.7 million, an increase of 67% as compared to the first nine months of 2022, we achieved the top- and bottom-line growth anticipated in our business in the first nine months of the year. We continue to effectively leverage our multiple growth drivers, including a significant increase in sales of our anti-rabies immunoglobulin product, KEDRAB® as well as the portfolio of the four FDA-approved immunoglobulins (CYTOGAM®, HEPAGAMB®, VARIZIG® and WINRHO® SDF), and our Israeli distribution business.”
“We expect the momentum from the first nine months of the year to extend through the fourth quarter of 2023, with annual profitability to be further meaningfully enhanced as compared to last year. As such, we are reiterating our full-year 2023 revenue guidance of $138 million to $146 million and adjusted EBITDA of $22 million to $26 million; the mid-point of the range would represent profitability growth of approximately 35% over 2022,” continued Mr. London.
“During the recent period we reported multiple achievements with CYTOGAM. Specifically, following recent FDA approval of the technology transfer process, CYTOGAM manufactured at our Israeli facility is now available for commercial sale in U.S., and new clinical data highlighting five-year real-world survival benefits of high risk CMV mismatch lung transplant patients receiving CYTOGAM were presented at IDWeek 2023. In addition, we continue to advance our pivotal phase 3 InnovAATe trial for Inhaled AAT and we recently received positive feedback from the independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) which recommended study continuation without modification for the sixth time since study initiation, based on encouraging safety data observed in the study to date,” added Mr. London.
“Our future prospects were also recently further buoyed by the recent closing of our $60 million private placement with FIMI Opportunity Funds. This strategic investment provides us with financial flexibility to pursue compelling business development opportunities, a process that we are currently engaged in,” concluded Mr. London.

Non-IFRS financial measures
We present EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because we use this non-IFRS financial measure to assess our operational performance, for financial and operational decision-making, and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. Management believes this non-IFRS financial measure are useful to investors because: (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and provide investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations; and (2) they exclude the impact of certain items that are not directly attributable to our core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the core operating performance of the business. Non-IFRS financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, our IFRS results. We expect to continue reporting non-IFRS financial measures, adjusting for the items described below, and we expect to continue to incur expenses similar to certain of the non-cash, non-IFRS adjustments described below. Accordingly, unless otherwise stated, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the presentation of non-IFRS financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under IFRS and do not purport to be an alternative to IFRS terms as an indicator of operating performance or any other IFRS measure. Moreover, because not all companies use identical measures and calculations, the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are defined as net income (loss), plus income tax expense, plus or minus financial income or expenses, net, plus or minus income or expense in respect of securities measured at fair value, net, plus or minus income or expenses in respect of currency exchange differences and derivatives instruments, net, plus depreciation and amortization expense, plus non-cash share-based compensation expenses and certain other costs.
