Novavax Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2016 Financial Results
Gaithersburg, MD, February 27, 2017 – Novavax, Inc., (Nasdaq:NVAX) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2016.
Recent and Fourth Quarter Achievements:
|·||Continued execution of the global Phase 3 Prepare™ clinical trial to prevent RSV in infants via maternal immunization. Prepare is a randomized, observer-blinded, placebo-controlled trial, conducted at multiple international sites. The primary objective is to determine the efficacy of maternal immunization with our RSV F Vaccine against symptomatic RSV lower respiratory tract infection with hypoxemia in infants through a minimum of the first 90 days of life. Prepare is supported by a grant of up to $89 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF); and|
|·||Initiation of a randomized, observer-blinded, multi-arm, dose-ranging Phase 2 clinical trial, in one and two dose formulations, both with and without adjuvants, of the RSV F Vaccine in older adults (60 years of age and older). The trial will evaluate safety and immunogenicity of these formulations in older adults as measured by serum microneutralization titers against RSV/A and RSV/B, palivizumab competing antibodies (PCA) and anti-F IgG.|
“We’ve made significant progress executing on the path forward that we outlined in late 2016,” said Stanley C. Erck, President and CEO. “For the remainder of the year we will focus on the ongoing Phase 3 trial of our RSV F Vaccine for infants via maternal immunization and on understanding the results of our Phase 2 immunogenicity trial in older adults, along with a deeper understanding of the Resolve Phase 3 trial results we reported last September. We also plan on moving our Zika and nanoparticle influenza vaccine programs into the clinic later this year.”
Financial Results for the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2016
Novavax reported a net loss of $57.1 million, or $0.21 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $78.8 million, or $0.29 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, the net loss was $280.0 million, or $1.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $156.9 million, or $0.60 per share, for the same period in 2015.
Novavax revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 decreased 8% to $5.4 million, compared to $5.9 million for the same period in 2015. Revenue for the full year 2016 decreased 58% to $15.4 million, compared to $36.3 million in 2015. The decrease in revenue under the HHS BARDA contract in 2016 of approximately $31 million relative to 2015 accounts for the decrease. The lower HHS BARDA revenue is the result of a lower level of activity, primarily resulting from the natural expiration of the BARDA contract, as compared to the same period in 2015. This decrease in HHS BARDA revenue was partially offset by an increase of $9.4 million in revenue in 2016 recorded under the BMGF grant relating to our ongoing Prepare clinical trial.
