Novelion Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2018
Financial Results

Following recent marketing approval in both generalized and partial lipodystrophy indications, European launch of MYALEPTA® has commenced

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, August 7, 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 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018 and provided an overview of business activities.

Interim Chief Executive Officer Jeff Hackman commented, “Under our new leadership team, we are laser focused on maximizing the potential of our two commercial assets, enhancing our operational efficiencies by reducing costs, and fixing our capital structure issues so we can invest in the long-term opportunity of our valuable rare disease therapies.

“On the commercial front, we expect sequential revenue growth in the second half of this year, bolstered by stabilizing JUXTAPID® sales in the U.S., and continued penetration of the Japan market, where there are more than 200 registered HoFH patients. We also expect initial contribution from the European launch of MYALEPTA® (metreleptin) for both generalized lipodystrophy (GL) and partial lipodystrophy (PL), which represents the largest market for metreleptin in terms of treatable patients, a number of whom have already been identified through our pre-approval compassionate use program and are expected to be converted onto therapy, subject to pricing and reimbursement approvals, where required. Further, we believe that we can leverage the EU approval data package to support our plans to expand the U.S. label to include the PL indication and to file in additional markets, including Brazil. We want to thank Murray Stewart, M.D., our head of R&D, and his team, along with all the employees that supported the filing and approval, for achieving this important approval. We look forward to their work on expanding the metreleptin opportunity.”

Business Highlights

On July 31, Novelion announced that the European Commission (EC) granted marketing authorization for MYALEPTA, as an adjunct to diet, as a replacement therapy to treat the complications of leptin deficiency in lipodystrophy (LD) patients with confirmed congenital GL or acquired GL in adults and children 2 years of age and above; or with confirmed familial PL or acquired PL, in adults and children 12 years of age and above for whom standard treatments have failed to achieve adequate metabolic control. MYALEPTA is the first and only licensed treatment in Europe in these indications. Pricing and reimbursement negotiations with healthcare authorities have commenced and will be pursued on a country-by-country basis.
