Novelion Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2018
Financial Results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 10, 2018
- Novelion Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: NVLN), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing therapies for individuals living with rare diseases (“Novelion” or the “Company”), today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018 and provided an overview of business activities.

Chief Operating Officer Jeff Hackman said, “Thus far in 2018 we have executed a number of important initiatives, including finalizing the settlements with the DOJ, reducing costs, strengthening our balance sheet with a $20 million term loan, and reviewing our holding and capital structure with a goal of optimizing our assets for shareholders. We have a strong rare disease product portfolio that carries the opportunity to expand metreleptin into new disease areas, and which we believe will deliver meaningful future sales growth. We remain focused on continuing to market important therapies that will bring value to our patients.”

Business Update

JUXTAPID: Novelion reported net revenues of JUXTAPID of $13.4 million in the first quarter of 2018, $8.6 million, or 64%, of which were from prescriptions written in the U.S.

MYALEPT: Novelion reported net revenues of MYALEPT of $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, $9.8 million, or 69%, of which were from prescriptions written in the U.S.

Novelion ended the first quarter of 2018 with $52.0 million in unrestricted cash, compared with $55.4 million at the end of 2017. The $52.0 million includes proceeds from a $20.0 million term loan to Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Aegerion") provided by affiliates of Sarissa Capital Management and Broadfin Capital LLC, as announced in March 2018.

The Company expects the opinion of the European Medicines Agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (“CHMP”) on the metreleptin marketing authorization application in the second quarter of 2018, followed by a mid-2018 European Commission approval decision.

Novelion announced that a poster describing the results of a metreleptin study for weight loss in overweight and obese adults with low leptin levels will be presented at the American Diabetes Association’s 78th Annual Scientific Sessions which is being held from June 22 to June 26, 2018 in Orlando, Florida.
