NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2022
(unaudited)
Note 1 – Organization and Business

Novavax, Inc. (“Novavax,” and together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, the “Company”) is a biotechnology company that promotes improved health globally through the discovery, development, and commercialization of innovative vaccines to prevent serious infectious diseases. The Company’s COVID-19 vaccine (“NVX-CoV2373,” “Nuvaxovid™,” “Covovax™,” “Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine, Adjuvanted”); influenza vaccine candidate; COVID-19-Influenza Combination (“CIC”) vaccine candidate; and additional vaccine candidates, including for Omicron subvariants and bivalent formulations with prototype vaccine (“NVX-CoV2373”), are genetically engineered nanostructures of conformationally correct recombinant proteins critical to disease pathogenesis and may elicit differentiated immune responses, which may be more efficacious than naturally occurring immunity or other vaccine approaches. NVX-CoV2373 and the Company’s other vaccine candidates incorporate the Company's proprietary Matrix-M adjuvant to enhance the immune response and stimulate higher levels of functional antibodies and induce a cellular immune response. The Company has announced data from its ongoing PREVENT-19 study supporting the use of NVX-CoV2373 for homologous boosting in adults and adolescents aged 12 through 17. Additional findings in Phase 3 COVID-19 Omicron (study 311) trial showed utility of the prototype vaccine as a heterologous booster, inducing broad immune responses against contemporary Omicron variants.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had received approval, interim authorization, provisional approval, conditional marketing authorization, and emergency use authorization (“EUA”) from multiple regulatory authorities globally for NVX-CoV2373 for both adult and adolescent populations as a primary series and for both homologous and heterologous booster indications.

The Company commenced commercial shipments of NVX-CoV2373 doses under the name “Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine, Adjuvanted” and the brand name “Nuvaxovid™” in 2022.
Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The consolidated financial statements are unaudited, but include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) that the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, operating results, comprehensive loss, changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the periods presented. Although the Company believes that the disclosures in these unaudited consolidated financial statements are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, certain information and footnote information normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted as permitted under the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Novavax, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Accumulated other comprehensive loss included a foreign currency translation loss of $23.8 million and $1.4 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Results for this or any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for any future interim period or for the entire year. The Company operates in one business segment.
Reclassifications
Certain amounts reported in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to current period financial statement presentation. These reclassifications have no material effect on previously reported financial position, cash flows, or results of operations.
6

Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Revenue Recognition - Product Sales

Product sales are associated with the Company’s NVX-CoV2373 supply agreements, sometimes referred to as advance purchase agreements (“APAs”), with various international governments. The Company recognizes revenue from product sales based on the transaction price per dose calculated in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) when control of the product transfers to the customer and customer acceptance has occurred, unless such acceptance provisions are deemed perfunctory. If an APA includes a term that may have the effect of decreasing the price per dose of previously delivered shipments, the Company constrains the price until it is probable that a significant reversal in revenue recognized will not occur.
Cost of Sales
Cost of sales includes cost of raw materials, production, and manufacturing overhead costs associated with the Company’s product sales during the period. Cost of sales also includes adjustments for excess, obsolete, or expired inventory; idle capacity; and losses on firm purchase commitments to the extent the cost cannot be recovered based on estimates about future demand. Cost of sales does not include certain expenses related to raw materials, production, and manufacturing overhead costs that were expensed prior to regulatory authorization as described under the caption “Inventory” below.
Inventory

Inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net realizable value under the First In, First Out (“FIFO”) methodology, taking into consideration the expiration of the inventory item (see Note 7). The Company determines the cost of raw materials using moving average costs and the cost of semi-finished and finished goods using a standard cost method adjusted on a periodic basis to reflect the deviation in the actual cost from the standard cost estimate. Standard costs consist primarily of the cost of manufacturing goods, including direct materials, direct labor, and the services and products of third-party suppliers. Manufacturing overhead costs are applied to semi-finished and finished goods based on expected production levels. The Company utilizes third-party contract manufacturing organizations (“CMOs”), contract development and manufacturing organizations (“CDMOs”), and other suppliers and service organizations to support the procurement and processing of raw materials, management of inventory, packaging, and the delivery process. Adjustments to reduce the cost of inventory to its net realizable value, if required, are made for estimated excess, obsolete, or expired inventory through cost of sales.

Prior to initial regulatory authorization for its product candidates, the Company expenses costs relating to raw materials, production, and manufacturing overhead costs as research and development expenses in the consolidated statements of operations, in the period incurred. Subsequent to initial regulatory authorization for a product candidate, the Company capitalizes the costs of production for a particular supply chain as inventory when the Company determines that it has a present right to the economic benefit associated with the product.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Not Yet Adopted
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”), with amendments in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2022. The ASU sets forth a “current expected credit loss” (“CECL”) model that requires companies to measure all expected credit losses for financial instruments held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable supportable forecasts. ASU 2016-13 applies to financial instruments that are not measured at fair value, including receivables that result from revenue transactions. The ASU is effective for the Company beginning on January 1, 2023. Management is currently evaluating the effect of the guidance and does not expect it to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
7

Adopted
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06”), which simplified the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including certain convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. Specifically, the new standard removed the separation models required for convertible debt with cash conversion features and convertible instruments with beneficial conversion features. It also removed certain settlement conditions that are currently required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception and simplified the diluted earnings per share calculation for convertible instruments. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2022 using a modified retrospective approach, which did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Note 3 – Revenue
The Company's accounts receivable included $43.6 million and $419.7 million related to amounts that were billed to customers and $68.0 million and $35.3 million related to amounts which had not yet been billed to customers as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, changes in the Company's accounts receivables and deferred revenue balances were as follows (in thousands):
December 31, 2021 Additions Deductions September 30, 2022
Contract receivables:
Accounts receivable $ 454,993  1,519,345  (1,862,693) $ 111,645 
Contract liabilities:
Deferred revenue(1)
$ 1,595,472  96,298 
(251,576)(2)
$ 1,440,194 
(1)    Amount is comprised of $404.8 million and $1.4 billion of current Deferred revenue and $1.0 billion and $172.5 million of non-current Deferred revenue as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
(2)    Deductions from Deferred revenue includes $202.5 million that was realized in Revenue and $49.1 million that was reclassified to Other liabilities.
The aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to performance obligations that were unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied), excluding amounts related to sales-based royalties, was approximately $4 billion as of September 30, 2022. Failure to meet regulatory milestones, timely obtain supportive recommendations from governmental advisory committees, or achieve product volume or delivery timing obligations under the Company’s APA agreements may require the Company to refund portions of upfront payments or result in reduced future payments, which could adversely impact the Company’s ability to realize revenue from its unsatisfied performance obligations. The timing to fulfill performance obligations related to grant agreements will depend on the results of the Company's research and development activities, including clinical trials, and delivery of doses. The timing to fulfill performance obligations related to APAs will depend on timing of product manufacturing, receipt of marketing authorizations for additional indications, delivery of doses based on customer demand, and the ability of the customer to request variant vaccine in place of the prototype NVX-CoV2373 vaccine under certain of our APAs. The remaining unfilled performance obligations not related to grant agreements or APAs are expected to be fulfilled in less than 12 months.

In July 2022, the Company entered into a modification to the OWS Agreement that amended the terms of such agreement to provide for (i) an initial delivery to the U.S. government of approximately 3 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 and (ii) any additional manufacture and delivery to the U.S. government up to an aggregate of 100 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 contemplated by the original OWS Agreement (inclusive of the initial batch of approximately 3 million doses) dependent on U.S. government demand, FDA guidance on strain selection, agreement between the parties on the price of such doses, and available funding. The 3 million initial doses were delivered in July 2022. Additionally, in July 2022, the Company modified its existing agreement with the DoD and delivered 0.2 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 after receipt of EUA approval from the FDA, with delivery of the remaining 9.8 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 contemplated by the original agreement subject to DoD demand and available funding.
CEPI
The Company’s funding agreement with CEPI, under which CEPI has agreed to provide funding of up to $399.5 million to the Company to support the development of NVX-CoV2373, provides up to $257.0 million in grant funding and up to $142.5 million in forgivable no-interest term loans. These loans are only repayable if NVX-CoV2373 manufactured by the CMO network funded by CEPI is sold under the Company’s APA with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (“Gavi”), and such sales cover the Company’s costs of manufacturing the vaccine, not including manufacturing costs funded by CEPI. The timing of any loan repayments is currently uncertain given the timing and quantities of future orders under the Company’s APA with Gavi are unclear, as discussed below.

Royalties and Other
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recognized $1.3 million and $10.5 million, respectively, in revenue related to sales-based royalties. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recognized a $20.0 million milestone payment upon the sale of NVX-CoV2373 in Japan. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recognized $39.9 million and $63.4 million, respectively, in revenue related to sales-based royalties. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company did not recognize any revenue related to milestone payments.

Advance Purchase Agreements (APAs)
Under the terms of the Company’s supply commitment with Gavi, which includes both Novavax’ APA with Gavi and the supply obligation of its licensed partner, Serum Institute of India Private Limited (“SIIPL”), 1.1 billion doses of NVX-CoV2373 are to be made available to countries participating in the COVAX Facility, which was established to allocate and distribute vaccines equitably to participating countries and economies. The Novavax APA contemplates that the Company will manufacture and distribute 350 million doses. Under that agreement with Gavi, the Company received an upfront payment of $350 million from Gavi in 2021 and an additional payment of $350 million in the first quarter of 2022 related to the Company’s achieving WHO Emergency Use Listing. Although Novavax continues to be prepared to deliver the quantities of NVX-CoV2373 doses to Gavi under the terms of the APA, the Company was notified by Gavi of its intent to seek to revise the number and timing of doses of NVX-CoV2373 supplied by Novavax under such agreement. Furthermore, Gavi may seek partial or full recovery of the prior nonrefundable payments it has made to Novavax. The Company’s position is that Gavi has no contractual right to recover prior nonrefundable payments if it fails to order the 350 million doses it committed to order. To date, except for an initial order of approximately 2 million doses, Novavax has not received an order from Gavi and the timing and quantities of future orders to deliver NVX-CoV2373 to the COVAX Facility are unclear.
Under the terms of the Company’s SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Supply Agreement, originally entered into in October 2020 (the “Original UK Supply Agreement”) with The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, acting on behalf of the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the “Authority”), the Authority agreed to purchase 60 million doses of NVX-CoV2373. In July 2022, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Supply Agreement (the “Amended and Restated UK Supply Agreement”) with the Authority, under which the Authority agreed to purchase a minimum of 1 million doses and up to an additional 15 million doses of NVX-CoV2373, with the number of additional doses contingent on the Company’s timely achievement of supportive recommendations from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (the “JCVI”). In the event that the Company is unable to achieve the JCVI supportive recommendations, it may have to repay up to $225.0 million related to the upfront payment previously received from the Authority under the Original UK Supply Agreement. As of September 30, 2022, the Company will be required to repay a minimum of $40.0 million related to the upfront payment, which is reflected in Other current liabilities, with the remaining balance of $185.0 million reflected in Deferred revenue. Under the Amended and Restated UK Supply Agreement, the Authority also has the option to purchase up to an additional 44 million doses, in one or more tranches, through 2024.
The Company has an APA with the European Commission (“EC”) acting on behalf of various European Union member states to supply a minimum of 20 million and up to 100 million initial doses of NVX-CoV2373, with the option for the EC to purchase an additional 100 million doses up to a maximum aggregate of 200 million doses in one or more tranches, through 2023. In July and August 2022, the Company was notified by the EC that it was cancelling 5 million doses of its prior commitment originally scheduled for delivery in the first and second quarters of 2022, in accordance with the APA, and reducing the order to 65 million doses. The Company is in the process of finalizing a revised delivery schedule for the remaining 23 million committed doses under the APA that were originally scheduled for delivery during the first and second quarters of 2022.

(“SK bioscience”) to manufacture and commercialize NVX-CoV2373 for sale to the governments of South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. SK bioscience pays a royalty in the low to middle double-digit range. Additionally, the Company has a manufacturing supply arrangement with SK bioscience under which SK bioscience supplies the Company with the antigen component of NVX-CoV2373 for use in the final drug product globally, including product to be distributed by the COVAX Facility, which was established to allocate and distribute vaccines equitably to participating countries and economies. In July 2022, the Company signed an additional agreement with SK bioscience for the technology transfer of the Company’s proprietary COVID-19 variant antigen materials so that SK bioscience can manufacture the drug substance targeting COVID-19 variants, including the Omicron subvariants. The companies also signed an agreement to manufacture and supply the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine in a prefilled syringe.
Other Supply Agreements
On September 30, 2022, the Company, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies UK Limited (“FDBK”), FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies Texas, LLC (“FDBT”), and FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies USA, Inc. (“FDBU” and together with FDBK and FDBT, “Fujifilm”) entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement and Release (the “Fujifilm Settlement Agreement”) regarding amounts due to Fujifilm in connection with the termination of manufacturing activity at FDBT under the Commercial Supply Agreement (the “CSA”) dated August 20, 2021 and Master Services Agreement dated June 30, 2020 and associated statements of work (the “MSA”) by and between the Company and Fujifilm. The MSA and CSA established the general terms and conditions applicable to Fujifilm’s manufacturing and supply activities related to NVX-CoV2373 under the associated statements of work.
Pursuant to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement, the Company is responsible for payment of up to $185.0 million (the “Settlement Payment”) to Fujifilm in connection with cancellation of manufacturing activity at FDBT under the CSA, of which (i) $47.8 million, constituting the initial reservation fee under the CSA, was credited against the Settlement Payment on September 30, 2022 and (ii) the remaining balance is to be paid in four equal quarterly installments of $34.3 million each beginning March 31, 2023. As of September 30, 2022, $102.9 million of the remaining payment was reflected in Accrued expenses and $34.3 million was reflected in Other non-current liabilities. Under the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement, Fujifilm is required to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate the losses associated with the vacant manufacturing capacity caused by the termination of manufacturing activities at FDBT under the CSA, and the final two quarterly installments will be mitigated by any replacement revenue achieved by Fujifilm between July 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023. The Settlement Payment is less than amounts previously recognized as embedded lease expense and reflected in Research and development expense from FDBT manufacturing activity under the CSA prior to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement and accordingly, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded a benefit of $98.3 million as Research and development expense (see Note 9).
Except with respect to certain limited activities agreed upon by the parties, the MSA terminated with respect to all activities in FDBU and FDBT on October 21, 2022 and the impact of the termination was determined in accordance with the provisions of the MSA. The terms and conditions of the MSA and CSA will remain in full force and effect with respect to the ongoing activities at FDBK. In addition, the Company and Fujifilm mutually released all claims relating to (i) the cancellation of batches to be manufactured at FDBT under the MSA or CSA, (ii) FDBT facility idle time in 2022, (iii) failure to complete product performance qualification testing of batches manufactured by Fujifilm by December 2021, and (iv) any obligation by Fujifilm to reserve capacity or manufacture batches at FDBT for the benefit of the Company under the MSA or CSA.
The Company continues to assess its manufacturing needs and intends to modify its global manufacturing footprint consistent with its contractual obligations to supply, and anticipated demand for, NVX-CoV2373, and in doing so, recognizes that significant costs may be incurred.

Note 9 - Leases

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company concluded that changes in facts and circumstances on its CMO and CDMO agreements that had previously been determined to represent embedded lease arrangements resulted in the modification of existing leases and, in accordance with its policy, the Company remeasured and reallocated the remaining consideration in the contracts and reassessed the lease classification as of the effective date of the modification. As a result, during the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recognized a Right-Of-Use (“ROU”) asset and a corresponding long-term operating lease liability of $44.0 million on the remeasurement of its long-term supply agreements using an average incremental borrowing rate of 5%. The Company expensed the ROU asset since it relates to research and development activities for the development of NVX-CoV2373 for which the Company does not have an alternative future use.

Equity Plans
The 2015 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (“2015 Plan”), was approved at the Company's annual meeting of stockholders in June 2015. Under the 2015 Plan, equity awards may be granted to officers, directors, employees, and consultants of and advisors to the Company and any present or future subsidiary.
The 2015 Plan authorizes the issuance of up to 14.8 million shares of common stock under equity awards granted under the 2015 Plan, which includes an increase of 2.4 million shares approved for issuance under the 2015 Plan at the Company's 2022 annual meeting of stockholders. All such shares authorized for issuance under the 2015 Plan have been reserved. The 2015 Plan will expire on March 4, 2025. As of September 30, 2022, there were 4.6 million shares available for issuance under the 2015 Plan.
The Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (“2005 Plan”) expired in February 2015 and no new awards may be made under such plan, although awards will continue to be outstanding in accordance with their terms.
The 2015 Plan permits and the 2005 Plan permitted the grant of stock options (including incentive stock options), restricted stock, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), and restricted stock units (“RSUs”). In addition, under the 2015 Plan, unrestricted stock, stock units, and performance awards may be granted. Stock options and SARs generally have a maximum term of ten years and may be or were granted with an exercise price that is no less than 100% of the fair market value of the Company's common stock at the time of grant. Grants of stock options are generally subject to vesting over periods ranging from one to four years.

Total stock-based compensation capitalized and included in inventory as of September 30, 2022 was $1.8 million. There was no stock-based compensation capitalized and included in inventory as of December 31, 2021.
As of September 30, 2022, there was approximately $189 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested stock options, SARs, RSUs, and the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan, as amended (“ESPP”). This unrecognized non-cash compensation expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of approximately one year. This estimate does not include the impact of other possible stock-based awards that may be made during future periods.
The aggregate intrinsic value represents the total intrinsic value (the difference between the Company’s closing stock price on the last trading day of the period and the exercise price, multiplied by the number of in-the-money stock options and SARs) that would have been received by the holders had all stock option and SAR holders exercised their stock options and SARs on September 30, 2022. This amount is subject to change based on changes to the closing price of the Company's common stock. The aggregate intrinsic value of stock options and SARs exercises and vesting of RSUs for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 was approximately $19 million and $381 million, respectively.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan
The ESPP was approved at the Company's annual meeting of stockholders in June 2013. The ESPP currently authorizes an aggregate of 1.1 million shares of common stock to be purchased, and the aggregate amount of shares will continue to increase 5% on each anniversary of its adoption up to a maximum of 1.65 million shares. The ESPP allows employees to purchase shares of common stock of the Company at each purchase date through payroll deductions of up to a maximum of 15% of their compensation, at 85% of the lesser of the market price of the shares at the time of purchase or the market price on the beginning date of an option period (or, if later, the date during the option period when the employee was first eligible to participate). As of September 30, 2022, there were 0.7 million shares available for issuance under the ESPP.
The ESPP is considered compensatory for financial reporting purposes. As such, the fair value of ESPP shares was estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions:

Note 13 – Income Taxes

The Company evaluates the available positive and negative evidence to estimate whether sufficient future taxable income will be generated to permit use of the existing deferred tax assets. A significant piece of objective evidence evaluated was the cumulative loss incurred over the three-year period ended September 30, 2022 and that the Company has historically generated pretax losses. Such objective evidence limits the ability to consider other subjective evidence, such as projections for future growth. On the basis of this evaluation, as of September 30, 2022, the Company continued to maintain a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets, except to the extent Net Operating Losses (“NOLs”) have been used to reduce taxable income. The Company’s remaining U.S. Federal NOLs are subject to limitation in accordance with the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”), which limits allowable NOL deductions to 80% of federal taxable income.

Effective January 1, 2022, a provision of the TCJA has taken effect creating a significant change to the treatment of research and experimental expenditures under Section 174 of the IRC (“Sec. 174 expenses”). Historically, businesses have had the option of deducting Sec. 174 expenses in the year incurred or capitalizing and amortizing the costs over five years. The new TCJA provision, however, eliminates this option and will require Sec. 174 expenses associated with research conducted in the U.S. to be capitalized and amortized over a five-year period. For expenses associated with research outside of the U.S., Sec. 174 expenses will be capitalized and amortized over a 15-year period.
The Company recognized federal and state income tax expense of $2.4 million and $4.3 million, in total, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, and did not recognize federal or state income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The Company recognized income tax expense related to foreign withholding tax on royalties of $0.1 million and $2.3 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and $6.0 million and $12.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

Legal Matters

On November 12, 2021, Sothinathan Sinnathurai filed a purported securities class action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against the Company and certain members of senior management, captioned Sothinathan Sinnathurai v. Novavax, Inc., et al., No. 8:21-cv-02910-TDC (the “Sinnathurai Action”). On January 26, 2022, the court entered an order designating David Truong, Nuggehalli Balmukund Nandkumar, and Jeffrey Gabbert as co-lead plaintiffs in the Sinnathurai Action. The co-lead plaintiffs filed a consolidated amended complaint on March 11, 2022, alleging that the defendants made certain purportedly false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s ability to manufacture NVX-CoV2373 on a commercial scale and to secure the vaccine’s regulatory approval. The amended complaint defines the purported class as those stockholders who purchased the Company’s securities between February 24, 2021 and October 19, 2021. On April 25, 2022, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the consolidated amended complaint. On June 9, 2022, the co-lead plaintiffs filed an opposition to the motion to dismiss and on July 11, 2022, the Company filed a reply brief. The matter is now fully briefed. The Court has not indicated whether it intends to schedule any hearing on the motion before issuing a ruling.

After the Sinnathurai Action was filed, six derivative lawsuits were filed: (i) Robert E. Meyer v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:21-cv-02996-TDC (the “Meyer Action”), (ii) Shui Shing Yung v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:21-cv-03248-TDC (the “Yung Action”), (iii) William Kirst, et al. v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:22-cv-00024-TDC (the “Kirst Action”), (iv) Amy Snyder v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:22-cv-01415-TDC (the “Snyder Action”), (v) Charles R. Blackburn, et al. v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 1:22-cv-01417-TDC (the “Blackburn Action”), and (vi) Diego J. Mesa v. Stanley C. Erck, et al. (the “Mesa Action”). The Meyer, Yung, Snyder, and Blackburn Actions were filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. The Kirst Action was filed in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland, and shortly thereafter removed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland by the defendants. The Mesa Action was filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery. The derivative lawsuits name members of the board of directors and certain members of senior management as defendants. The Company is deemed a nominal defendant. The plaintiffs assert derivative claims arising out of substantially the same alleged facts and circumstances as the Sinnathurai Action. Collectively, the derivative complaints assert claims for breach of fiduciary duty, insider selling, unjust enrichment, violation of federal securities law, abuse of control, waste, and mismanagement. Plaintiffs seek declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as an award of monetary damages and attorneys’ fees.

On July 21, 2022, the Court issued a memorandum opinion and order remanding the Kirst Action to state court. On February 4, 2022, the Court entered an order consolidating the Meyer and Yung Actions (the “First Consolidated Derivative Action”). The plaintiffs in the First Consolidated Derivative Action filed their consolidated derivative complaint on April 25, 2022. On May 10, 2022, the Court entered an order in the First Consolidated Derivative Action granting the parties’ request to stay all proceedings and deadlines pending the earlier of dismissal or the filing of an answer in the Sinnathurai Action. On June 10, 2022, the Snyder and Blackburn Actions were filed. On October 5, 2022, the court entered an order granting a request by the plaintiffs in the First Consolidated Derivative Action and the Snyder and Blackburn Actions to consolidate all three actions and appoint co-lead plaintiffs and co-lead and liaison counsel (the “Second Consolidated Derivative Action”). The co-lead plaintiffs in the Second Consolidated Derivative Action will designate an operative complaint or file a consolidated amended complaint by November 21, 2022. On August 30, 2022, the Mesa Action was filed. On October 3, 2022, the court entered an order granting the parties’ request to stay all proceedings and deadlines in the Mesa Action pending the earlier of dismissal of the Sinnathurai Action or the filing of an answer to the operative complaint in the Sinnathurai Action. The financial impact of the claims is not estimable.

On February 26, 2021, a Novavax stockholder named Thomas Golubinski filed a derivative complaint against members of the Novavax board of directors and members of senior management in the Delaware Court of Chancery (the “Court”), captioned Thomas Golubinski v. Richard H. Douglas, et al., No. 2021-0172-JRS. The Company is deemed a nominal defendant. Golubinski challenged equity awards made in April 2020 and in June 2020 on the ground that they were “spring-loaded,” that is, made at a time when such board members or members of senior management allegedly possessed undisclosed positive material information concerning the Company. The complaint asserted claims for breach of fiduciary duty, waste, and unjust enrichment. The plaintiff sought an award of damages to the Company, an order rescinding both awards or requiring disgorgement, and an award of attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the litigation. On May 10, 2021, the defendants moved to dismiss the complaint in its entirety. On June 17, 2021, the Company’s stockholders voted FOR ratification of the April 2020 awards and ratification of the June 2020 awards. Details of the ratification proposals are set forth in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on May 3, 2021. The results of the vote were disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 24, 2021. Thereafter, the plaintiff stipulated that, as a result of the outcome of the June 17, 2021 vote, the plaintiff no longer intends to pursue the lawsuit or any claim arising from the April 2020 and June 2020 awards. On August 23, 2021, the plaintiff filed a motion seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to which the defendants filed an opposition. The motion was argued before the Court on October 18, 2022. The same day, the Court issued a bench ruling denying the plaintiff’s fee application in its entirety and entered an order to that effect. Under a prior Court order, the case was automatically dismissed with prejudice upon denial of the plaintiff’s fee application.

18

On March 29, 2022, Par Sterile Products, LLC (“Par”) submitted a demand for arbitration against the Company with the American Arbitration Association, alleging that the Company breached certain provisions of the Manufacturing and Services Agreement (“MSA”) that the Company entered into with Par in September 2020 to provide fill-finish manufacturing services for NVX-CoV2373. The matter is at a preliminary stage and therefore the potential loss is not reasonably estimable. The parties are engaged in discovery and arbitration is scheduled for July 2023. While the Company maintains that no breach of the MSA has occurred and intends to vigorously defend the matter, if the final resolution of the matter is adverse to the Company, it could have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

The Company is also involved in various legal proceedings arising in the normal course of business. Although the outcomes of these legal proceedings are inherently difficult to predict, management does not expect the resolution of these legal proceedings to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

Overview

Novavax, Inc., together with our wholly-owned subsidiaries, is a biotechnology company that promotes improved health globally through the discovery, development, and commercialization of innovative vaccines to prevent serious infectious diseases. Our proprietary recombinant technology platform harnesses the power and speed of genetic engineering to efficiently produce highly immunogenic nanoparticle vaccines designed to address urgent global health needs.

Our vaccine candidates are genetically engineered nanostructures of conformationally correct recombinant proteins that mimic those found on natural pathogens. This technology enables the immune system to recognize the right target proteins from different angles and develop protective antibodies. We believe that our vaccine technology may lead to the induction of a differentiated immune response that may be more efficacious than naturally occurring immunity or other vaccine approaches. Our vaccine candidates also incorporate our proprietary saponin-based Matrix-M™ adjuvant to enhance the immune response and stimulate higher levels of functional antibodies and induce a cellular immune response.

We have developed a COVID-19 vaccine (“NVX-CoV2373,” “Nuvaxovid™,” “Covovax™,” “Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine, Adjuvanted”), and are developing an influenza vaccine candidate, a COVID-19-Influenza Combination (“CIC”) vaccine candidate, and additional vaccine candidates, including for Omicron subvariants (NVX-CoV2515 for Omicron BA.1 specific vaccine), and bivalent formulations with prototype vaccine (“NVX-CoV2373”). NVX-CoV2373 has received approval, interim authorization, provisional approval, conditional marketing authorization (“CMA”), and emergency use authorization (“EUA”) from multiple regulatory authorities globally for both adult and adolescent populations as a primary series and for both homologous and heterologous booster indications. In addition to COVID-19 and seasonal influenza, our other areas of focus include respiratory syncytial virus (“RSV”) and malaria.

Technology Overview

We believe our recombinant nanoparticle vaccine technology together with our proprietary Matrix-M™ adjuvant is well-suited for the development and commercialization of vaccine candidates targeting a broad scope of respiratory and other emerging infectious diseases at scale.

Recombinant Nanoparticle Vaccine Technology

Once a pathogenic threat has been identified, the genetic sequence encoding the antigen is selected for subsequent use in developing the vaccine construct. The genetic sequence may be optimized to enhance protein stability or confer resistance to degradation. This genetic construct is inserted into the baculovirus Spodoptera frugiperda (“Sf9/BV”) insect cell-expression system, which enables efficient, large-scale expression of the optimized protein. The Sf9/BV system produces proteins that are properly folded and modified – which can be critical for functional, protective immunity – as the vaccine antigen. Protein antigens are purified and organized around a polysorbate-based nanoparticle core, in a configuration that resembles their native presentation. This results in a highly immunogenic nanoparticle that is ready to be formulated with Matrix-M adjuvant.

Matrix-M™ Adjuvant

Our proprietary Matrix-M™ adjuvant has been a key differentiator within our platform. This adjuvant has demonstrated potent, well-tolerated, and durable efficacy by stimulating the entry of antigen presenting cells (“APCs”) into the injection site and enhancing antigen presentation in local lymph nodes. This in turn activates APCs, T-cell and B-cell populations, plasma cells, and high affinity antibodies, thereby boosting immune response. This potent mechanism of action enables a lower dose of antigen required to achieve the desired immune response and we believe thereby contributes to increased vaccine supply and manufacturing capacity. These immune-boosting and dose-sparing capabilities contribute to the adjuvant’s highly unique profile.
NVX-CoV2373 Regulatory and Licensure

We continue to make progress in advancing NVX-CoV2373 toward regulatory approvals. We have received numerous authorizations globally within the adult population, aged 18 and older, and the adolescent population, aged 12 through 17, for primary series and both homologous and heterologous booster indications. Collectively, these indications have the potential to reach over six billion individuals. To date, we have received approval, interim authorization, provisional approval, CMA, and EUA for both adult and adolescent populations, and we are working to expand our label worldwide. We continue to work closely with governments, regulatory authorities, and non-governmental organizations in our commitment to facilitate equitable global access to our COVID-19 vaccine.

21

For the territories in which our vaccine has gained authorization, NVX-CoV2373 is marketed under the brand names (i) Nuvaxovid™ COVID-19 Vaccine (SARS-CoV-2 rS Recombinant, adjuvanted), (ii) Covovax™ (manufacturing and commercialization by the Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. (“SIIPL”)), or (iii) Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine, Adjuvanted.

Clinical Pipeline

Our clinical pipeline encompasses vaccine candidates spanning multiple therapeutic areas including coronavirus, seasonal influenza, and RSV, in addition to providing Matrix-MTM adjuvant for collaborations investigating the prevention of malaria. Our COVID-19 vaccine candidate, NVX-CoV2373, is our leading product, having received approval, interim authorization, provisional approval, CMA, and EUA from multiple regulatory authorities globally.

We advanced NVX-CoV2373 through two pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials that demonstrated high efficacy against both the original COVID-19 strain and commonly circulating COVID-19 variants of concern, while displaying a favorable safety profile. In October 2022, we announced additional data from the Phase 3 PREVENT-19 trial and new results from a Lot Consistency Study (Study 307). New PREVENT-19 data added support for the use of prototype Novavax vaccine for homologous boosting in adults and adolescents aged 12 through 17. In all adults, boosted responses were long-lived and were demonstrated to be relevant against currently circulating variants such as Omicron. The Lot Consistency trial met its primary endpoint, showing that three lots of COVID-19 vaccine induced comparable immune responses in adults aged 18 through 49, thereby demonstrating the consistency of the commercial manufacturing process. Additional findings showed utility of the prototype vaccine as a heterologous booster, inducing broad immune responses against contemporary Omicron variants.

We remain focused on expanding our NVX-CoV2373 vaccine label within the booster and adolescent market following global regulatory authorizations. In August 2022, we initiated the Phase 2b/3 Hummingbird global clinical trial. The trial will evaluate the safety, effectiveness (immunogenicity), and efficacy of two primary doses of NVX-CoV2373 given 21 days apart in younger children (aged six to 11 years), followed by a booster dose at six months after the primary vaccination series. We enrolled the sentinel cohort in the first age group (aged six to 11 years) in the United States. Based on initial supportive safety and tolerability data analyzed by an independent Safety Monitoring Committee, we have progressed to recruiting the full age cohort. Furthermore, through ongoing booster studies in our clinical trials and continued development of our COVID-19 variant strain vaccine candidates, we continue to evaluate vaccine performance. We remain confident in the utility of our prototype vaccine against emerging variants, as we continue to respond to the evolving COVID landscape. We are currently analyzing preliminary clinical data from our ongoing Omicron BA.1 monovalent and bivalent strain change trial (study 311). Study 311 achieved its strain-change endpoint using BA.1 as the model omicron subvariant vaccine. However, the magnitude and breadth of the immune responses following boosting with the prototype vaccine reinforces our belief that a strain change may not be required for our technology. No significant benefit was observed for the bivalent formatted vaccine. When evaluating the response to the forward drifted BA.5 omicron subvariant, neither the BA.1 vaccine nor the prototype/BA.1 bivalent vaccine offered any advantage. We expect to leverage these clinical insights to advance additional regulatory approvals of our COVID-19 vaccine for primary, booster, and pediatric indications globally, amidst the ongoing and evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, we are developing our quadrivalent nanoparticle influenza vaccine (qNIV) candidate, previously known as NanoFlu, which we previously advanced through a successful Phase 3 study announced in September 2021, demonstrating the utility for a stand-alone influenza vaccine or used in a combination vaccine. We continue to progress our CIC vaccine candidate, which combines NVX-CoV2373 and our qNIV approach. In October 2022, we announced positive results from the Phase 1/2 CIC clinical trial demonstrating the CIC vaccine’s ability to generate both antibody and polyfunctional CD4+ T-cell (lymphocytes that help coordinate the immune response) responses against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and homologous and heterologous influenza strains. We intend to continue the clinical development of CIC with a follow-up trial to begin in late 2022.

24

Furthermore, we remain interested in continuing the development of both our RSV Program for respiratory syncytial virus fusion (F) protein nanoparticle vaccine candidate (“RSV F Vaccine”) and Matrix-MTM adjuvant collaborations for malaria. There is an ongoing Phase 3 trial being conducted by our partner, Jenner Institute, University of Oxford, for R21, a malaria candidate which is formulated using our Matrix-M adjuvant. In September 2022, positive results from an ongoing Phase 1/2b study were published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases reporting safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy results at 12 months following administration of a booster vaccination. A booster dose of R21 formulated with our Matrix-M adjuvant at one year following the primary three-dose regimen maintained high efficacy against first and multiple episodes of clinical malaria. The booster vaccine induced antibody concentrations that is related to vaccine efficacy. The trial is ongoing to assess long-term follow-up of the participants and the value of further booster vaccinations.

The pipeline chart below summarizes the core clinical and preclinical development programs that we are focusing on in the near-term.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we sold 2.6 million shares of our common stock resulting in net proceeds of approximately $565 million, under our various At Market Issuance Sales agreements then in effect.
Critical Accounting Policies and Use of Estimates

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements (unaudited) and the accompanying notes, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates, assumptions, and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, and equity and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Our critical accounting policies and estimates are included under Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, as filed with the SEC, and are updated for inventory valuation below.
Inventory Valuation
We periodically analyze our inventories for excess amounts or obsolescence and write down obsolete or otherwise unmarketable inventory to its estimated net realizable value based on assumptions about expected future demand and market conditions. Our assumptions about expected future demand are inherently uncertain and if we were to change any of these judgments or estimates, it could cause a material increase or decrease in the amount of inventory write down that we report in a particular period. Expense incurred related to excess inventory and obsolete inventory is recorded as a component of cost of sales in the consolidated statement of operations.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

Results of Operations
The following is a discussion of the historical financial condition and results of our operations that should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes set forth in this Quarterly Report.
Three Months Ended September 30, 2022 and 2021
Revenue
Three Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Revenue (in thousands):
Product sales $ 626,091  $ —  $ 626,091 
Grants 106,273  135,007  (28,734)
Royalties and other 2,213  43,837  (41,624)
Total revenue $ 734,577  $ 178,844  $ 555,733 
27

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $734.6 million as compared to $178.8 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of $555.7 million. Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was primarily comprised of revenue from product sales of NVX-CoV2373 and revenue for services performed under the agreement with the U.S. government partnership formerly known as OWS (“OWS Agreement”). Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily comprised of revenue for services performed under the OWS Agreement and our funding agreements with CEPI. The increase in revenue was due to the commencement of commercial sales of NVX-CoV2373 in 2022, partially offset by decreased development activities under our funding agreements with CEPI.
We expect revenue in 2022 to significantly increase as compared to 2021 due to product sales of NVX-CoV2373 under various supply agreements, sometimes referred to as advance purchase agreements (“APAs”), as a result of multiple global regulatory approvals.
Expenses
Three Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Expenses (in thousands):
Cost of sales $ 434,593  —  $ 434,593 
Research and development 304,297  408,195  (103,898)
Selling, general, and administrative 122,876  77,793  45,083 
Total expenses $ 861,766  $ 485,988  $ 375,778 
Cost of Sales
Cost of sales was $434.6 million, or 69% of product sales, for the three months ended September 30, 2022, including expense of $249.0 million related to excess, obsolete, or expired inventory and losses on firm purchase commitments. Prior to receiving regulatory approval, we expensed manufacturing costs as research and development expenses. After receiving regulatory approval, we capitalize the costs of production for a particular supply chain when we determine that we have a present right to the economic benefit associated with the product. While we tracked the quantities of our manufactured vaccine product and components, we did not track pre-approval manufacturing costs and therefore the manufacturing cost of our pre-launch inventory produced prior to approval is not reasonably determinable. However, based on our expectations for future manufacturing costs to produce our vaccine product and components inventory, we estimate at September 30, 2022 we had approximately $0.1 billion of commercial inventory that was expensed prior to approval. We expect to utilize the majority of our reduced-cost inventory through 2023. If inventory sold for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was valued at expected standard cost, including expenses related to excess and obsolete inventory, adjusted cost of sales for the period would have been approximately $444.0 million, or 71% of product sales, an adjustment of $9.4 million as compared to cost of sales recognized. The cost of sales to high income countries is expected to be between 15% and 30% of product sales based on our standard cost. The cost of sales as a percentage of product sales may fluctuate in the future as a result of changes to our customer mix or standard costs.
28

Research and Development Expenses
Research and development expenses decreased to $304.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 as compared to $408.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $103.9 million primarily due to research and development of coronavirus vaccines, including NVX-CoV2373, NVX-CoV2515, bivalent formulations, and CIC, as summarized in the table below (in thousands):
Three Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021
Coronavirus vaccines $ 208,004  $ 341,600 
Influenza vaccine
3,011  1,656 
Other vaccine development programs 843  126 
Total direct external research and development expense 211,858  343,382 
Employee expenses 45,150  36,574 
Stock-based compensation expense 16,107  21,860 
Facility expenses 16,770  4,983 
Other expenses 14,412  1,396 
Total research and development expenses $ 304,297  $ 408,195 
Research and development expenses for coronavirus vaccines for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, included a benefit of $80.5 million related to previously accelerated manufacturing costs and an expense of $35.8 million related to the acceleration of manufacturing costs, respectively, for leases that we determined were embedded in multiple manufacturing supply agreements with Contract Manufacturing Organizations (“CMOs”) and contract manufacturing and development organizations (“CDMOs”). Pursuant to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement (see Note 4 to our consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report), we are responsible for a Settlement Payment of up to $185.0 million to Fujifilm in connection with cancellation of manufacturing activity at FDBT under the CSA, of which $47.8 million, constituting the initial reservation fee under the CSA, was credited against the Settlement Payment on September 30, 2022. The Settlement Payment is less than amounts previously recognized as embedded lease expense and reflected in Research and development expense from FDBT manufacturing activity under the CSA prior to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement and accordingly, during the three months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded a benefit of $98.3 million as Research and development expense. For 2022, we expect total research and development expenses to decrease as compared to 2021, primarily due to capitalization of manufacturing costs during 2022 that were previously recognized as research and development expenses in prior periods, partially offset by research and development expenses related to increased clinical activities as we continue to develop our coronavirus vaccines and other programs.
Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased to $122.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 from $77.8 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of $45.1 million. The increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses is primarily due to an increase in professional fees and marketing costs in support of our NVX-CoV2373 program. For 2022, we expect selling, general, and administrative expenses to increase significantly as compared to 2021 due to increased activities related to supporting our NVX-CoV2373 program and increases in professional fees and marketing costs.
Other Expense
Three Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Other Expense (in thousands):
Interest expense $ (4,169) $ (5,182) $ 1,013 
Other expense (34,783) (4,064) (30,719)
Total other expense, net $ (38,952) $ (9,246) $ (29,706)
We had total other expense, net, of $39.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 as compared to $9.2 million for the same period in 2021. During the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, other expense was primarily related to losses due to foreign exchange rate activity.
29

Income Tax Expense
During the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we recognized $2.5 million and $6.0 million, respectively, of income tax expense related to federal and state income taxes and foreign withholding tax on royalties.
Net Loss
Three Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Net Loss (in thousands, except per share information):
Net loss $ (168,613) $ (322,431) $ 153,818 
Net loss per share, basic and diluted $ (2.15) $ (4.31) $ 2.16 
Weighted average shares outstanding, basic and diluted 78,274  74,745  3,529 
Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $168.6 million, or $2.15 per share, basic, as compared to $322.4 million, or $4.31 per share, basic, for the same period in 2021. The decrease in net loss during the three months ended September 30, 2022, was primarily due to the commencement of commercial sales of NVX-CoV2373 in 2022 and a decrease in research and development expense, partially offset by the write-down of excess, obsolete, or expired inventory and losses on firm purchase commitments.
The increase in weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2022 is primarily a result of sales of our common stock and exercises of stock-based awards in 2022 and 2021.
Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 and 2021
Revenue
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Revenue (in thousands):
Product sales $ 1,267,174  $ —  $ 1,267,174

Royalties and other 43,951  69,700  (25,749)
Total revenue $ 1,624,473  $ 924,090  $ 700,383 
Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $1.6 billion as compared to $924.1 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of $700.4 million. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was primarily comprised of revenue from product sales of NVX-CoV2373 and, to a lesser extent, revenue for services performed under the OWS Agreement. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily comprised of revenue for services performed under the OWS Agreement and our funding agreements with CEPI. The increase in revenue was due to the commencement of commercial sales of NVX-CoV2373 in 2022, partially offset by decreased development activities under the OWS Agreement and our funding agreements with CEPI.

Selling, general, and administrative 327,028  214,144  112,884 
Total expenses $ 2,025,330  $ 1,785,695  $ 239,635 
30

Cost of Sales
Cost of sales was $720.9 million, or 57% of product sales, for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, including expense of $504.3 million related to excess, obsolete, or expired inventory and losses on firm purchase commitments. Prior to receiving approval, we expensed manufacturing costs as research and development expenses. After receiving approval, we capitalize the costs of production for a particular supply chain when we determine that we have a present right to the economic benefit associated with the product. While we tracked the quantities of our manufactured vaccine product and components, we did not track pre-approval manufacturing costs and therefore the manufacturing cost of our pre-launch inventory produced prior to approval is not reasonably determinable. However, based on our expectations for future manufacturing costs to produce our vaccine product and components inventory, we estimate at September 30, 2022 we had approximately $0.1 billion of commercial inventory that was expensed prior to approval. We expect to utilize the majority of our reduced-cost inventory through 2023. If inventory sold for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was valued at expected standard cost, adjusted cost of sales for the period would have been approximately $883.5 million, or 70% of product sales, an adjustment of $162.6 million as compared to cost of sales recognized. The cost of sales to high income countries is expected to be between 15% and 30% of product sales based on our standard cost. The cost of sales as a percentage of product sales may fluctuate in the future as a result of changes to our customer mix or standard costs.
Research and Development Expenses
Research and development expenses decreased to $977.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from $1.6 billion for the same period in 2021, a decrease of $594.1 million, primarily due to decreased development activities relating to coronavirus vaccines, including NVX-CoV2373, NVX-CoV2515, bivalent formulations, and CIC, as summarized in the table below (in thousands):
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021
Coronavirus vaccines $ 697,952  $ 1,376,921 
Influenza vaccine
6,581  5,950 
Other vaccine development programs 1,156  641 
Total direct external research and development expense 705,689  1,383,512 
Employee expenses 132,069  86,085 
Stock-based compensation expense 52,692  70,429 
Facility expenses 40,842  11,387 
Other expenses 46,136  20,138 
Total research and development expenses $ 977,428  $ 1,571,551 
Research and development expenses for coronavirus vaccines for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, included a benefit of $147.8 million related to previously accelerated manufacturing costs and an expense of $78.8 million related to the acceleration of manufacturing costs, respectively, for leases that we determined were embedded in multiple manufacturing supply agreements with CMOs and CDMOs. Pursuant to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement (see Note 4 to our consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report), we are responsible for a Settlement Payment of up to $185.0 million to Fujifilm in connection with cancellation of manufacturing activity at FDBT under the CSA, of which $47.8 million, constituting the initial reservation fee under the CSA, was credited against the Settlement Payment on September 30, 2022. The Settlement Payment is less than amounts previously recognized as embedded lease expense and reflected in Research and development expense from FDBT manufacturing activity under the CSA prior to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement and accordingly, during the three months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded a benefit of $98.3 million as Research and development expense.

Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased to $327.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from $214.1 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of $112.9 million. The increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses is primarily due to an increase in professional fees and marketing costs in support of our NVX-CoV2373 program.

Other Expense
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Other Expense (in thousands):
Interest expense $ (15,279) $ (15,989) $ 710 
Other expense (53,002) (7,267) (45,735)
Total other expense, net $ (68,281) $ (23,256) $ (45,025)
We had total other expense, net of $68.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 as compared to $23.3 million for the same period in 2021. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, other expense was primarily related to losses due to foreign exchange rate activity.
Income Tax Expense
During the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we recognized $6.6 million and $12.6 million, respectively, of income tax expense related to federal and state income taxes and foreign withholding tax on royalties.
Net Loss
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Net Loss (in thousands, except per share information):
Net loss $ (475,690) $ (897,467) $ 421,777 
Net loss per share, basic and diluted $ (6.13) $ (12.13) $ 6.00 
Weighted average shares outstanding, basic and diluted 77,631  73,972  3,659 
Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $475.7 million, or $6.13 per share, as compared to $897.5 million, or $12.13 per share, for the same period in 2021. The decrease in net loss during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was primarily due to the commencement of commercial sales of NVX-CoV2373 in 2022 and a decrease in research and development expense, partially offset by decreased revenue under the OWS Agreement and the write-down of excess, obsolete, or expired inventory and losses on firm purchase commitments.
The increase in weighted average shares outstanding for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 is primarily a result of sales of our common stock in 2022 and 2021.
Liquidity Matters and Capital Resources
Our future capital requirements depend on numerous factors including, but not limited to, revenue from our product sales and royalties under licensing arrangements with our strategic partners; funding under our grant agreements; our projected activities related to the development and commercial support of NVX-CoV2373 and variant candidates, including significant commitments under various CRO, CMO, and CDMO agreements; the progress of preclinical studies and clinical trials; the time and costs involved in obtaining regulatory approvals; the costs of filing, prosecuting, defending, and enforcing patent claims and other intellectual property rights; and other manufacturing, sales, and distribution costs. We plan to continue developing other vaccines and product candidates, such as our influenza vaccine candidate and potential combination vaccines candidates, which are in various stages of development.
32

We have entered into supply agreements, sometimes referred to as APAs, with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (“Gavi”); the European Commission (“EC”); and various countries globally. We also have grant and license agreements. As of September 30, 2022, the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to performance obligations that were unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied), excluding amounts related to sales-based royalties under the license agreements, was approximately $4 billion. Failure to meet regulatory milestones, timely obtain supportive recommendations from governmental advisory committees, or achieve product volume or delivery timing obligations under our APA agreements may require us to refund portions of upfront payments or result in reduced future payments, which could adversely impact our ability to realize revenue from our unsatisfied performance obligations. The timing to fulfill performance obligations related to grant agreements will depend on the results of our research and development activities, including clinical trials, and delivery of doses. The timing to fulfill performance obligations related to supply agreements will depend on timing of product manufacturing, receipt of marketing authorizations for additional indications, delivery of doses based on customer demand, and the ability of the customer to request variant vaccine in place of the prototype NVX-CoV2373 vaccine under certain of our APAs. The supply agreements typically contain terms that include upfront payments intended to assist us in funding investments related to building out and operating our manufacturing and distribution network, among other expenses, in support of our global supply commitment, and are applied to billings upon delivery of NVX-CoV2373. Such upfront payments under our supply agreements generally become non-refundable upon our achievement of certain development, regulatory, and commercial milestones.

In addition, we continue to assess our manufacturing needs and intend to modify our global manufacturing footprint consistent with our contractual obligations to supply, and anticipated demand for, NVX-CoV2373, and in doing so recognize that significant costs may be incurred. Pursuant to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement (see Note 4 to our consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report), we are responsible for a Settlement Payment of up to $185.0 million to Fujifilm in connection with cancellation of manufacturing activity at FDBT under the CSA, of which $47.8 million, constituting the initial reservation fee under the CSA, was credited against the Settlement Payment on September 30, 2022. The Settlement Payment is less than amounts previously recognized as embedded lease expense and reflected in Research and development expense from FDBT manufacturing activity under the CSA prior to the Fujifilm Settlement Agreement and accordingly, during the three months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded a benefit of $98.3 million as Research and development expense.

Under the terms of our supply commitment with Gavi, which includes both our APA and the supply obligation of our licensed partner, SIIPL, 1.1 billion doses of NVX-CoV2373 are to be made available to countries participating in the COVAX Facility, which was established to allocate and distribute vaccines equitably to participating countries and economies. The Novavax APA contemplates that we will manufacture and distribute 350 million doses. Under that agreement with Gavi, we received an upfront payment of $350 million from Gavi in 2021 and an additional payment of $350 million in the first quarter of 2022 related to our achieving WHO Emergency Use Listing. Although Novavax continues to be prepared to deliver the quantities of NVX-CoV2373 doses to Gavi under the terms of the APA, we were notified by Gavi of its intent to seek to revise the number and timing of doses of NVX-CoV2373 supplied by Novavax under such agreement. Furthermore, Gavi may seek partial or full recovery of the prior nonrefundable payments it has made to Novavax. Our position is that Gavi has no contractual right to recover prior nonrefundable payments if it fails to order the 350 million doses it committed to order. To date, except for an initial order of approximately 2 million doses, Novavax has not received an order from Gavi and the timing and quantities of future orders to deliver NVX-CoV2373 to the COVAX facility are unclear.

In July 2022, we entered into an Amended and Restated SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Supply Agreement (the “Amended and Restated UK Supply Agreement”) with The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, acting on behalf of the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the “Authority”), which amended and restated in its entirety the SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Supply Agreement originally entered into in October 2020 (the “Original UK Supply Agreement”). Pursuant to the Original UK Supply Agreement, the Authority agreed to purchase 60 million doses of NVX-CoV2373. Under the Amended and Restated UK Supply Agreement, the Authority agreed to purchase a minimum of 1 million doses and up to an additional 15 million doses of NVX-CoV2373, with the number of additional doses contingent on our timely achievement of supportive recommendations from the United Kingdom’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (the “JCVI”). In the event that we are unable to achieve the JCVI supportive recommendations, we may have to repay up to $225.0 million related to the upfront payment we received from the Authority under the Original UK Supply Agreement. As of September 30, 2022, we will be required to repay a minimum of $40.0 million related to the upfront payment. Under the Amended and Restated UK Supply Agreement, the Authority also has the option to purchase up to an additional 44 million doses, in one or more tranches, through 2024.

We have an APA with the EC acting on behalf of various EU member states to supply a minimum of 20 million and up to 100 million initial doses of NVX-CoV2373, with the option for the EC to purchase an additional 100 million doses up to a maximum aggregate of 200 million doses, in one or more tranches, through 2023. In July and August 2022, we were notified by the EC that it was cancelling 5 million doses of its prior commitment originally scheduled for delivery in the first and second quarters of 2022, in accordance with the APA, and reducing the order to 65 million doses. We are in the process of finalizing a revised delivery schedule for the remaining 23 million committed doses under our APA with the EC that were originally scheduled for delivery during the first and second quarters of 2022.

33

In July 2022, we entered into a modification to the OWS Agreement that amended the terms of such agreement to provide for (i) an initial delivery to the U.S. government of approximately 3 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 and (ii) any additional manufacture and delivery to the U.S. government up to an aggregate of 100 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 contemplated by the original OWS Agreement (inclusive of the initial batch of approximately 3 million doses) dependent on U.S. government demand, FDA guidance on strain selection, agreement between the parties on the price of such doses, and available funding. Additionally, in July 2022, we entered into a modification to our existing agreement with the DoD that amended the terms of such agreement to provide for the initial delivery of 0.2 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 after receipt of EUA approval from the FDA, with delivery of the remaining 9.8 million doses of NVX-CoV2373 contemplated by the original agreement subject to DoD demand and available funding.

In the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we primarily funded our operations with cash and cash equivalents, upfront payments under APAs, revenue from product sales, royalties under licensing arrangements with our strategic partners, and proceeds from the sale of common stock, together with revenue under the OWS Agreement that supports our NVX-CoV2373 vaccine development activities. We anticipate our future operations to be funded by revenue from product sales, royalties under licensing arrangements with our strategic partners, revenue under our OWS Agreement, our cash and cash equivalents, and other potential funding sources.
We may from time to time seek to retire or purchase, directly or indirectly, our outstanding debt through cash purchases and/or exchanges for equity or debt, in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise. Such purchases and/or exchanges, if any, will be on such terms and at such prices as we may determine, and will depend on prevailing market conditions, our liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions, and other factors. The amounts involved may be material, which could impact our capital structure, the market for our debt securities, and the price of the indebtedness being purchased and/or exchanged, and affect our liquidity.
As of September 30, 2022, we had $1.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash as compared to $1.5 billion as of December 31, 2021.
The following table summarizes cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2022 2021 Change
Net cash provided by (used in):
Operating activities $ (298,121) $ 665,354  $ (963,475)
Investing activities (70,921) 116,518  (187,439)
Financing activities 133,548  522,424  (388,876)
Effect on exchange rate on cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash 257  (6,208) 6,465 
Net increase (decrease) in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash (235,237) 1,298,088  (1,533,325)
Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash at beginning of period 1,528,259  648,738  879,521 
Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash at end of period $ 1,293,022  $ 1,946,826  $ (653,804)
Net cash used in operating activities was $298.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $665.4 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease in cash provided is primarily due to the application of upfront payments under APAs resulting from sales of NVX-CoV2373 during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 as compared to an increase in cash due to the receipt of upfront payments under APAs during the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, our investing activities consisted primarily of capital expenditures and maturities and sale of marketable securities, net of purchases. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 were $66.0 million and $41.1 million, respectively. For 2022, we expect our capital expenditures to continue to increase due to further development activities for our NVX-CoV2373 program, including the additional build-out of research and development and manufacturing facilities and related equipment, and the build-out of our new corporate office facility.
Our financing activities consisted primarily of sales of our common stock under our At Market Issuance Sales Agreements, payments of finance lease liabilities, and exercise of stock-based awards. In the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we received net proceeds of approximately $179 million and $565 million, respectively, from selling shares of common stock through our At Market Issuance Sales Agreements.

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are subject to certain risks that may affect our results of operations, cash flows, and fair values of assets and liabilities, including volatility in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rate movements.

Foreign Currency Exchange Risk

Although we are headquartered in the U.S., our results of operations, including our foreign subsidiaries’ operations, are subject to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, primarily the U.S. dollar against the Euro, Pound Sterling, Swedish Krona, and Czech Koruna. This exchange exposure may have a material effect on our cash flow and results of operations, particularly in cases of revenue generated under APAs that include provisions that impact our and our counterparty’s currency exchange exposure. To date, we have not entered into any foreign currency hedging contracts, although we may do so in the future.

We also face foreign currency exchange exposure that arises from translating the results of our global operations to the U.S. dollar at exchange rates that have fluctuated from the beginning of the period. While the financial results of our global activities are reported in U.S. dollars, the functional currency of our foreign subsidiaries is generally their respective local currency. Fluctuations in the foreign currency exchange rates of the countries in which we do business will affect our operating results, often in ways that are difficult to predict. A 10% decline in the foreign exchange rates (primarily against the U.S. dollar) relating to our foreign consolidated subsidiaries would result in a decline of stockholders’ equity of approximately $17 million as of September 30, 2022.

Market and Interest Rate Risk

The primary objective of our investment activities is preservation of capital, with the secondary objective of maximizing income.

Our exposure to market risk is primarily confined to our investment portfolio, which historically has been classified as available-for-sale. We do not believe that a change in the market rates of interest would have any significant impact on the realizable value of our investment portfolio. Changes in interest rates may affect the investment income we earn on our marketable securities when they mature and the proceeds are reinvested into new marketable securities and, therefore, could impact our cash flows and results of operations.

Interest and dividend income is recorded when earned and included in investment income. Premiums and discounts, if any, on marketable securities are amortized or accreted to maturity and included in investment income. The specific identification method is used in computing realized gains and losses on the sale of our securities.

Our convertible senior unsecured notes have a fixed interest rate, and we have no additional material debt. As such, we do not believe that we are exposed to any material interest rate risk as a result of our borrowing activities.
Item 4.    Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Our management, with the assistance of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, has reviewed and evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of September 30, 2022. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving such control objectives. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2022, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, have evaluated changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2022, and have concluded that there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1.    Legal Proceedings
Stockholder Litigation
On November 12, 2021, Sothinathan Sinnathurai filed a purported securities class action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against Novavax and certain members of senior management, captioned Sothinathan Sinnathurai v. Novavax, Inc., et al., No. 8:21-cv-02910-TDC (the “Sinnathurai Action”). On January 26, 2022, the court entered an order designating David Truong, Nuggehalli Balmukund Nandkumar, and Jeffrey Gabbert as co-lead plaintiffs in the Sinnathurai Action. The co-lead plaintiffs filed a consolidated amended complaint on March 11, 2022, alleging that the defendants made certain purportedly false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s ability to manufacture NVX-CoV2373 on a commercial scale and to secure the vaccine’s regulatory approval. The amended complaint defines the purported class as those stockholders who purchased Novavax securities between February 24, 2021 and October 19, 2021. On April 25, 2022, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the consolidated amended complaint. On June 9, 2022, the co-lead plaintiffs filed an opposition to the motion to dismiss and on July 11, 2022, the Company filed a reply brief. The matter is now fully briefed. The Court has not indicated whether it intends to schedule any hearing on the motion before issuing a ruling.

After the Sinnathurai Action was filed, six derivative lawsuits were filed: (i) Robert E. Meyer v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:21-cv-02996-TDC (the “Meyer Action”), (ii) Shui Shing Yung v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:21-cv-03248-TDC (the “Yung Action”), (iii) William Kirst, et al. v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:22-cv-00024-TDC (the “Kirst Action”), (iv) Amy Snyder v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 8:22-cv-01415-TDC (the “Snyder Action”), (v) Charles R. Blackburn, et al. v. Stanley C. Erck, et al., No. 1:22-cv-01417-TDC (the “Blackburn Action”), and (vi) Diego J. Mesa v. Stanley C. Erck, et al. (the “Mesa Action”). The Meyer, Yung, Snyder, and Blackburn Actions were filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. The Kirst Action was filed in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland, and shortly thereafter removed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland by the defendants. The Mesa Action was filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery. The derivative lawsuits name members of the board of directors and certain members of senior management as defendants. Novavax is deemed a nominal defendant. The plaintiffs assert derivative claims arising out of substantially the same alleged facts and circumstances as the Sinnathurai Action. Collectively, the derivative complaints assert claims for breach of fiduciary duty, insider selling, unjust enrichment, violation of federal securities law, abuse of control, waste, and mismanagement. Plaintiffs seek declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as an award of monetary damages and attorneys’ fees.

On July 21, 2022, the Court issued a memorandum opinion and order remanding the Kirst Action to state court. On February 4, 2022, the Court entered an order consolidating the Meyer and Yung Actions (the “First Consolidated Derivative Action”). The plaintiffs in the First Consolidated Derivative Action filed their consolidated derivative complaint on April 25, 2022. On May 10, 2022, the Court entered an order in the First Consolidated Derivative Action granting the parties’ request to stay all proceedings and deadlines pending the earlier of dismissal or the filing of an answer in the Sinnathurai Action. On June 10, 2022, the Snyder and Blackburn Actions were filed. On October 5, 2022, the court entered an order granting a request by the plaintiffs in the First Consolidated Derivative Action and the Snyder and Blackburn Actions to consolidate all three actions and appoint co-lead plaintiffs and co-lead and liaison counsel (the “Second Consolidated Derivative Action”). The co-lead plaintiffs in the Second Consolidated Derivative Action will designate an operative complaint or file a consolidated amended complaint by November 21, 2022. On August 30, 2022, the Mesa Action was filed. On October 3, 2022, the court entered an order granting the parties’ request to stay all proceedings and deadlines in the Mesa Action pending the earlier of dismissal of the Sinnathurai Action or the filing of an answer to the operative complaint in the Sinnathurai Action.

On February 26, 2021, a Novavax stockholder named Thomas Golubinski filed a derivative complaint against members of the Novavax board of directors and members of senior management in the Delaware Court of Chancery (the “Court”), captioned Thomas Golubinski v. Richard H. Douglas, et al., No. 2021-0172-JRS. Novavax is deemed a nominal defendant. Golubinski challenged equity awards made in April 2020 and in June 2020 on the ground that they were “spring-loaded,” that is, made at a time when such board members or members of senior management allegedly possessed undisclosed positive material information concerning the Company. The complaint asserted claims for breach of fiduciary duty, waste, and unjust enrichment. The plaintiff sought an award of damages to the Company, an order rescinding both awards or requiring disgorgement, and an award of attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the litigation. On May 10, 2021, the defendants moved to dismiss the complaint in its entirety. On June 17, 2021, the Company’s stockholders voted FOR ratification of the April 2020 awards and ratification of the June 2020 awards. Details of the ratification proposals are set forth in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on May 3, 2021. The results of the vote were disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 24, 2021. Thereafter, the plaintiff stipulated that, as a result of the outcome of the June 17, 2021 vote, the plaintiff no longer intends to pursue the lawsuit or any claim arising from the April 2020 and June 2020 awards. On August 23, 2021, the plaintiff filed a motion seeking an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to which the defendants filed an opposition. The motion was argued before the Court on October 18, 2022. The same day, the Court issued a bench ruling denying the plaintiff’s fee application in its entirety and entered an order to that effect. Under a prior Court order, the case was automatically dismissed with prejudice upon denial of the plaintiff’s fee application.

Par Sterile Products, LLC Arbitration
On March 29, 2022, Par Sterile Products, LLC (“Par”) submitted a demand for arbitration against the Company with the American Arbitration Association, alleging that the Company breached certain provisions of the Manufacturing and Services Agreement (“MSA”) that the Company entered into with Par in September 2020 to provide fill-finish manufacturing services for NVX-CoV2373. The matter is at a preliminary stage and therefore the potential loss is not reasonably estimable. The parties are engaged in discovery and arbitration is scheduled for July 2023. While the Company maintains that no breach of the MSA has occurred and intends to vigorously defend the matter, if the final resolution of the matter is adverse to the Company, it could have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

General

We are also involved in various other legal proceedings arising in the normal course of business. Although the outcomes of these other legal proceedings are inherently difficult to predict, we do not expect the resolution of these other legal proceedings to have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
