Edick, Chairman and CEO of Xeris Biopharma. “We continue to drive education and awareness of all three products and remain confident in the long-term growth opportunity of each. Our strong performance year-to-date and expectations for the remainder of the year gives us confidence that we will achieve our guidance of net product revenue to $105 million to $120 million for the full year 2022, year-end cash balance of $90 million-$110 million and cash flow breakeven by year-end 2023.”

Second Quarter and Year-to-Date 2022 Financial Results
Gvoke®: Net revenue was $23.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a 42% increase compared to prior year. Gvoke prescriptions for YTD 2022 were over 65,000 TRx’s, growing more than 73% compared to the same period in 2021. The growth in product demand was partially offset by a decrease in net pricing.
Keveyis®: Net revenue was $22.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a 20% increase from last year on a pro forma basis. This increase was driven by an 11% increase in sales volume and an increase in net pricing.
Recorlev®: Net revenue was $1.1 million since its launch in February 2022.
|Six Months Ended June 30,||Change|
|Product revenue (in thousands):|
|Gvoke||$||23,932 ||$||16,886 ||$||7,046 ||42%|
|Product revenue, net||47,170||16,886||30,284||nm|

Cost of goods sold were $4.8 million and $11.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, a $1.4 million and a $5.9 million increase compared to the same periods last year. The increases were primarily attributable to increases in sales as well as product mix and increased costs.
Research and development expenses decreased $1.7 million or 30.9% and increased $0.6 million or 5.9% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. The quarter-to-date decrease was primarily driven by reduced spend on clinical and product development. The year-to-date increase was primarily driven by higher personnel related costs, offset by lower product development costs.
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $7.1 million or 27.2% and $23.9 million or 53.1% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. The quarter-to-date increase was mainly attributable to a $9.7 million of increased personnel-related costs due to the build out of our sales force to support our three commercial products. These were offset by $3.8 million decreased expenses related to the acquisition of Strongbridge. The year-to-date increase was mainly attributable to a $19.6 million increase in personnel-related costs due to the buildout of the sales force to support our three commercial products. We also had a $2.5 million increase in marketing expenses to primarily support the launch of Recorlev.
Net Loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022, was $26.2 million, or $0.19 per share, and a net loss of $59.9 million, or $0.44 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2022.
Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments at June 30, 2022 was $111.6 million compared to $102.4 million at December 31, 2021. Total shares outstanding at July 31, 2022 was 135,957,280.
