La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company Announces Financial Results for the
Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

SAN DIEGO, CA - October 24, 2018 - La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company (Nasdaq: LJPC), a leader in the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative therapies intended to significantly improve outcomes in patients suffering from life-threatening diseases, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, GIAPREZA™ (angiotensin II) net product sales were $3.5 million. This compares to $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. La Jolla launched GIAPREZA in the U.S. in March 2018. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, GIAPREZA net product sales were $5.9 million. In December 2017, GIAPREZA was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a vasoconstrictor to increase blood pressure in adults with septic or other distributive shock. La Jolla’s net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $50.7 million and $154.1 million, or $1.93 per share and $6.15 per share, respectively, compared to $26.3 million and $76.3 million, or $1.19 per share and $3.65 per share, respectively, for the same periods in 2017.

As of September 30, 2018, La Jolla had $204.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $90.9 million as of December 31, 2017. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was the result of $109.8 million of net proceeds from the March 2018 common stock offering and $124.3 million of net proceeds from the May 2018 royalty financing, offset primarily by cash used for operating activities. Cash used for operating activities for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $36.9 million and $120.3 million, respectively, compared to $18.5 million and $59.7 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2017.

In October 2018, La Jolla effected a Company-wide realignment to increase its focus and efficiency on achieving its corporate goals. La Jolla’s highest priorities remain the effective commercialization of GIAPREZA and development of its product pipeline, including LJPC-401 for multiple indications. As a result of the realignment, La Jolla expects that its cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2018 will be sufficient to fund its operations at least into the second half of 2020.

“Interest in GIAPREZA by intensive care physicians and their institutions continues to grow, and we are pleased to report that GIAPREZA is now on formulary in more than 300 hospitals in the U.S.,” said George Tidmarsh, M.D., Ph.D., La Jolla’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “With the validation of our Marketing Authorisation Application for GIAPREZA in June 2018, we look forward to also bringing this important treatment to patients in Europe in 2019, pending approval by the European Medicines Agency.”

About Shock and Septic or Other Distributive Shock

Over 1 million Americans are affected by shock on an annual basis, with 1 in 3 patients being treated for shock in the intensive care unit. Distributive shock is the most common type of shock in the inpatient setting with approximately 800,000 distributive shock cases in the United States per year. Of these cases, an estimated 90% are septic shock patients. Approximately 300,000 do not achieve adequate blood pressure response with standard of care vasopressor therapy (catecholamines and vasopressin). The inability to achieve or maintain adequate blood pressure results in inadequate blood flow to the body’s organs and tissue and is associated with a mortality rate exceeding most acute conditions requiring hospitalization. In the European Union, the annual incidence of sepsis in adults is estimated to be more than 500,000, with more than 170,000 progressing to septic shock.
