Alkermes Plc Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

 

— Second Quarter Revenues Increase to $304.6 Million, Driven by License Revenues and 24% Year-Over-Year Growth of Proprietary Product Net Sales 

—  Company Reports GAAP Net Loss per Share of $0.21 and Diluted Non-GAAP Earnings per Share of $0.29 

 Company Reiterates Financial Expectations for 2018 —

 

DUBLIN, Ireland, July 26, 2018  Alkermes plc  (Nasdaq: ALKS) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2018.

 

“Our strong second quarter results were driven by the solid growth of our proprietary commercial products, the continued strength of our royalty and manufacturing business, as well as the receipt of a $50 million payment related to our collaboration with Biogen for BIIB098,” commented James Frates, Chief Financial Officer of Alkermes. “The business is performing as planned and today we are reiterating our financial expectations for 2018. As we head into a catalyst-rich second half of the year, we are well-positioned financially to drive value, grow our portfolio of commercial products and advance our late-stage pipeline.”

 

Quarter Ended June 30, 2018 Financial Highlights

•     Total revenues for the quarter were $304.6 million. This compared to $218.8 million for the same period in the prior year, representing an increase of 39%. Proprietary product net sales for VIVITROL® and ARISTADA® were $109.8 million for the quarter, reflecting a 24% increase compared to the same period in the prior year.

•     Net loss according to generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP) was $32.6 million for the quarter, or a basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share of $0.21. This compared to GAAP net loss of $43.0 million, or a basic and diluted GAAP net loss per share of $0.28, for the same period in the prior year.

•     Non-GAAP net income was $45.6 million for the quarter, or a non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.29. This compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.2 million, or non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.01, for the same period in the prior year.

 

“VIVITROL and ARISTADA continue to demonstrate solid growth and perform in-line with our expectations. Our proprietary commercial portfolio is a key growth driver for Alkermes, and we are confident about the prospects ahead for these important products,” stated Jim Robinson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Alkermes. “In particular, the launch of ARISTADA INITIO™ is an important opportunity to support continuity of care and address a critical unmet need for patients, as ARISTADA is now the first and only long-acting atypical antipsychotic that can be fully dosed on day one for up to two months. ARISTADA INITIO represents a key addition to the treatment paradigm for schizophrenia and provides a platform to further expand utilization of ARISTADA.”

 

Quarter Ended June 30, 2018 Financial Results

Revenues

•     Net sales of VIVITROL were $76.2 million, compared to $66.1 million for the same period in the prior year, representing an increase of approximately 15%.

•     Net sales of ARISTADA were $33.6 million, compared to $22.7 million for the same period in the prior year, representing an increase of approximately 48%. 


 

•     Manufacturing and royalty revenues from RISPERDAL CONSTA®, INVEGA SUSTENNA®/XEPLION® and INVEGA TRINZA®/TREVICTA® were $85.2 million, compared to $82.2 million for the same period in the prior year.

•     Manufacturing and royalty revenues from AMPYRA®/FAMPYRA®1 were $19.7 million, compared to $25.3 million for the same period in the prior year.

•     License revenues from the collaboration with Biogen for BIIB098 (formerly ALKS 8700) were $48.3 million.

•     Research and development revenues were $18.3 million, of which $17.2 million related to the collaboration with Biogen for BIIB098.

 

Costs and Expenses

•     Operating expenses were $304.7 million, compared to $263.4 million for the same period in the prior year, primarily reflecting increased investment in the commercialization of VIVITROL and ARISTADA.

•     Other expense during the quarter included a $19.6 million charge due to a decrease in the fair value of contingent consideration related to Recro Pharma, Inc.’s receipt of a complete response letter from the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the New Drug Application (NDA) for IV Meloxicam.

 

“With a growing proprietary commercial portfolio and partnered royalty and manufacturing business approaching $1 billion in revenue in 2018, Alkermes is in a strong position to create significant long-term value. As we head into the second half of 2018, we are on the threshold of important value inflections across our development portfolio,” said Richard Pops, Chief Executive Officer of Alkermes. “For ALKS 5461 for major depressive disorder, the regulatory review is underway and we are preparing for an Advisory Committee meeting in the fourth quarter. For ALKS 3831 for schizophrenia, enrollment of the ENLIGHTEN-2 pivotal study is complete and we expect topline data in the fourth quarter of 2018. In addition, we are on track to submit the NDA for BIIB098 toward year-end, and we look forward to presenting initial data from the ALKS 4230 phase 1 study and expanding into combination therapy later this year.”

 

Recent Events

•     ARISTADA INITIO: Following recent FDA approval, ARISTADA INITIO is now commercially available. The ARISTADA INITIO regimen2 provides physicians with an opportunity to initiate patients onto any dose of ARISTADA on day one.

•     ALKS 5461: Data on the long-term safety, tolerability and durability of antidepressant effect of ALKS 5461 were presented at the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology (ASCP) annual meetings.

•     ALKS 3831: The company presented data from the ALKS 3831 preclinical program and phase 1 translational medicine study evaluating the metabolic profile of ALKS 3831 compared to olanzapine.

•     BIIB098: Alkermes received a $50 million payment from Biogen in June 2018. This payment follows Biogen's review of preliminary gastrointestinal tolerability data from the ongoing clinical development program for BIIB098.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes information about certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP), including non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

 

Non-GAAP net income (loss) adjusts for one-time and non-cash charges by excluding from GAAP results: share-based compensation expense; amortization; depreciation; non-cash net interest expense; certain other one-time or non-cash items; and the income tax effect of these reconciling items.

 

The company’s management and board of directors utilize these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company’s performance. The company provides these non-GAAP measures of the company’s performance to investors because management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with the company’s results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, are useful in identifying underlying trends in ongoing operations. However, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures as indicators of operating performance. Further, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share should not be considered measures of our liquidity.

 

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included in this press release.
