Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On August 13, 2021, Alimera Sciences, Inc. (“Alimera”) issued a press release regarding its results of operations and financial condition for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 as well as a corporate update. On August 13, 2021 at 9:00 A.M. ET, Alimera will host a conference call and a live webcast on the Investor Relations section of its corporate website at www.alimerasciences.com. During the conference call, Alimera’s executives will discuss the company’s financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and provide commercial and other corporate updates, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Alimera. The full text of the press release, which includes information regarding Alimera’s use of a non-GAAP financial measure, is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Various statements made during the conference call and webcast will or may be “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, regarding, among other things, Alimera’s belief that the strengthened balance sheet will lead to future investments behind ILUVIEN and that the Company will be able to increase key opinion leader engagement and advocacy development through the hiring of Dr. David Dyer. Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and involve inherent risks and uncertainties, including factors that could delay, divert or change these expectations, and could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Meaningful factors that could cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to, uncertainties associated with (a) the continued effects of COVID-19 on the ability or willingness of patients to visit their retina specialists for ILUVIEN injections; (b) current and future governmental orders and policies adopted by healthcare facilities to address the COVID-19 pandemic, and the duration of these limitations; (c) the recent resurgence of the pandemic in parts of both Europe and the U.S.; (d) the emergence of COVID-19 variants that increase the transmissibility of the coronavirus and are more deadly; (e) the success or failure of the vaccine campaigns in Alimera’s markets; (f) the timing of when the pandemic will subside enough to permit Alimera’s operations to return to its prior growth trajectory, particularly in the U.S. and Germany, and whether Alimera will be able to achieve that goal when given that opportunity; as well as the other factors discussed in the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of Alimera’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, which is on file with the SEC and is available on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. Additional factors will also be described in those sections of Alimera’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2021, to be filed with the SEC soon.

In addition to the risks described above and in Alimera’s reports and other filings with the SEC, other unknown or unpredictable factors also could affect Alimera’s results. There can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by Alimera will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, Alimera. Therefore, no assurance can be given that the outcomes stated in such forward-looking statements and estimates will be achieved. All forward-looking statements contained in the conference call and webcast and in the press release are expressly qualified by the cautionary statements contained or referred to herein and therein. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of the conference call and webcast and the press release (unless another date is indicated). Alimera undertakes no obligation, and specifically declines any obligation, to publicly update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

The information in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD.

The conference call and webcast, and the press release, include or will include a non-GAAP financial measure, Adjusted EBITDA. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is included in Alimera’s press release issued August 13, 2021 and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K under Item 7.01 is being “furnished” and not “filed” with the SEC for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities under such section. Furthermore, such information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act, or the Exchange Act, unless specifically identified as being incorporated therein by reference.
