Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) has updated the corporate presentation that it intends to use at the H.C. Wainwright 23rd Annual Global Investment Conference beginning on September 13, 2021 and subsequent investor conferences. The Company may use the presentation in meetings with investors from time to time as well. The updates primarily involve financial projections for the third quarter of 2021 on net revenue and retail units sold based on total prescription demand for Twirla® (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol) transdermal system. The Company estimates that net sales in the third quarter of 2021 will be in the range of $1.4 million to $1.6 million, and retail units sold based on total prescription demand will be 9,500 to 10,000. The update also reiterates the Company’s financial projection of operating expenses for the second half of 2021, which the Company expects to be at levels similar to its second quarter of 2021 spending within a range of $1 million to $2 million. Because the Company’s financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 have not yet been finalized or reviewed, this financial projection regarding the Company’s expected net revenue, units sold and operating expense is subject to change, and the Company’s results as of the end of this period may differ materially from this preliminary estimate. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on this preliminary estimate.
A copy of the Company’s updated corporate presentation is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

NASDAQ: AGRX 19 Financial Update & Company Outlook Second Quarter 2021 Results Net product sales revenue of $1.2 million reflected market demand as we completed our inventory drawdown.

Financial Flexibility • $30.1 million cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of June 30, 2021, and potential access to additional capital under existing loan facility subject to financial milestones • Potential to access additional capital through at-the-market arrangement to sell up to $50 million of company common stock.
NASDAQ: AGRX 20 We Continue to Focus on Growth in Q3 2021 Agile continues to focus on growing sales of Twirla in both the retail and non-retail channels. We are seeking to expand access to Twirla through initiatives like the recent collaboration with telemedicine provider, Pandia Health. Progress in the Retail channel. Estimated Q3 2021 retail units (cycles) sold based on script demand is expected to be in the range of 9,500 to 10,000 units, which would reflect an estimated 50% to 56% quarterly growth over the 6,400 retail units sold in Q2 2021. We seek to cultivate strategic Institutional Accounts. We do not expect meaningful sales into the non-retail institutional channel in 3Q 2021 but continue to explore developing institutional accounts. In Q2 2021 we had a significant purchase of 2,100 units of Twirla. Revenue outlook for Q3 2021. As previously guided, we expect net sales from our retail accounts to reflect more closely TRx script demand, with each script representing 1.3 cycles or monthly prescriptions of Twirla (3 patches). We estimate Q3 2021 net sales will be in the range of $1.4 million to $1.6 million.
