STOUGHTON, Mass., Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Nasdaq: COLL), a specialty pharmaceutical company committed to being the leader in responsible pain management today provided full-year 2019 guidance for Xtampza ER revenues, Nucynta Franchise revenues, and total operating expenses.

“With strong growth for Xtampza ER in 2018 and the addition of the Nucynta Franchise, Collegium built a solid foundation upon which to progress in the year ahead,” said Joe Ciaffoni, Chief Executive Officer. “Our 2019 revenue guidance reflects the anticipated impact of recently announced formulary wins for Xtampza ER as well as stabilization of the Nucynta franchise.”

Xtampza ER revenue for 2019 is estimated to be between $95 million and $105 million. Driven by thirteen exclusive Xtampza ER formulary wins that were recently announced, covering approximately 11 million lives, revenue growth is anticipated to be skewed to the first half of 2019, with moderated growth in the second half of 2019.

Nucynta Franchise revenue for 2019 is estimated to be between $200 million and $210 million. Nucynta Franchise revenue guidance reflects the Company’s expectations for continued prescription stabilization in 2019.

Total operating expenses for 2019 are expected to be between $125 million and $135 million. This includes Research & Development and Selling, General & Administrative expenses, but not the cost of product revenues.

The Company made its corporate presentation available on Form 8-K, filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
