Nov 07, 2013, 16:33 ET from Pharmacyclics, Inc.

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmacyclics, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: PCYC) today reported financial results and recent developments for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Financial Results for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013

Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $79.1 million compared to $54.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and $102.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Included in revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $75 million of regulatory milestones earned by the Company under its collaboration and license agreement (the "Agreement") with Janssen Biotech, Inc. and its affiliates ("Janssen"). As announced on August 29, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the Company's New Drug Application (NDA) filing for ibrutinib, for two B-cell malignancy indications: previously treated mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and previously treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL). Revenue for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012 consisted primarily of license and milestone revenue due to development milestones earned under the Agreement.

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $136.6 million, compared to $106.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the $75 million of regulatory milestones earned under the Agreement upon the FDA's acceptance for filing of the Company's NDA for ibrutinib during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP net income reported for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $52.5 million, or $0.72 and $0.68 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, compared to non-GAAP net income of $19.2 million, or $0.26 and $0.25 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $78.8 million, or $1.13 and $1.06 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively. Non-GAAP net income reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $43.3 million, or $0.60 and $0.57 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, compared to non-GAAP net income of $54.4 million or $0.79 and $0.74 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a description of our non-GAAP measures. A reconciliation between certain generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and non-GAAP measures is provided at the end of this press release.

GAAP net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $42.3 million, or $0.58 and $0.55 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, compared to GAAP net income of $12.4 million, or $0.17 and $0.16 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, GAAP net income was $75.6 million, or $1.09 and $1.02 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, GAAP net income was $2.8 million, or $0.04 net income per basic and diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $45.9 million, or $0.66 and $0.62 net income per basic and diluted share, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Included in GAAP net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012 was stock-based compensation expense of $40.6 million and $8.5 million, respectively.

To date, the Company has earned milestone payments of $275 million under the Agreement. In addition to the $75 million, representing regulatory milestones earned under the Agreement during the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company also earned four development milestone payments from Janssen of $50 million each, totaling $200 million. The Company may receive up to an additional $550 million ($50 million for development progress, $150 million for regulatory progress and $350 million for approval) in development, regulatory and approval milestone payments, however, clinical development entails risks and the Company has no assurance as to whether or when the milestone targets might be achieved.

The Agreement with Janssen includes a cost sharing arrangement for certain development activities. In general, Janssen is responsible for approximately 60% of development costs and the Company is responsible for 40% of development costs. The Agreement with Janssen also provides for a $50 million annual cap of the Company's share of development costs and pre-tax commercialization losses for each calendar year.

GAAP operating expenses were $25.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $42.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and $23.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. During the three months ended June 30, 2013, the Company exceeded the $50 million annual cap on its share of development costs under the Agreement. As such, all of the Company's share of development and commercial costs  chargeable to the collaboration during the quarter ended September 30, 2013 represents amounts incurred in excess of the annual cap ("Excess Amounts"). The Company recognizes Excess Amounts as a reduction to operating expenses. For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized $45.5 million of Excess Amounts as a reduction to operating expenses. There were no Excess Amounts recognized for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Of the Excess Amounts recognized for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, $34.1 million was recorded as a reduction to research and development expenses and $11.4 million was recorded as a reduction to general and administrative expenses.

GAAP operating expenses were $124.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $63.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized $65.9 million of Excess Amounts as a reduction to operating expenses. There were no Excess Amounts recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Of the Excess Amounts recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, $51.5 million was recorded as a reduction to research and development expenses and $14.4 million was recorded as a reduction to general and administrative expenses.

Under the Agreement, Janssen will fund maximum Excess Amounts of $200 million and $25 million of interest thereon. To date, the Company has recorded Excess Amounts amounting to $84.0 million. The Company recognizes Excess Amounts as a reduction to operating expenses as the Company's repayment of Excess Amounts to Janssen is contingent and would become payable only after the third profitable calendar quarter for the product. Further, Excess Amounts shall be reimbursable only from the Company's share of pre-tax profits (if any) after the third profitable calendar quarter for the product.  

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $560.1 million, compared with $317.1 million as of December 31, 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and accounts receivable from Janssen totaled approximately $612.3 million. The Company now expects to end calendar year 2013 in excess of $600 million in cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and receivables due from Janssen.

With the progress and achievements to date, the Company expects to be profitable on a GAAP basis for the quarter and year ending December 31, 2013.

"Team Pharmacyclics has consistently improved enrollment and data submission timelines for our CLL and MCL studies over the past years. Often the clinical accomplishments are ahead of our internal expectations," said Bob Duggan, CEO and Chairman of the Board."Most recently we achieved an important milestone with ibrutinib's drug application now being submitted to the European authorities. Together with Janssen, our partner, we are working towards a broad clinical advancement of ibrutinib and have now focused in on making the product commercially available in all major markets around the world. Over the next several quarters, we are anticipating additional clinical and regulatory progress. We are on our way to becoming a true ally for patients and physicians, addressing serious, unmet medical health care needs for patients."

Regulatory and Clinical Update

To date, over 2300 patients have been treated in company sponsored trials, over 800 principal investigators have been involved in the conduct of our clinical trials in 37 countries around the globe.

Selected Clinical Trials Initiated with ibrutinib Over the Last 21 Months

CLL/SLL

  • RESONATE™ (PCYC-1112) Phase III study of ibrutinib versus ofatumumab in patients with R/R CLL/SLL started in the second quarter of 2012. This is a randomized, multi-center, open-label Phase III trial of ibrutinib as a monotherapy. The enrollment of 391 patients was completed more than two quarters ahead of schedule in April 2013. The primary endpoint of this study is to demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) when compared to ofatumumab. A pre-defined number of progression events will trigger an interim analysis. Pharmacyclics expects a read out from the interim analysis during the first quarter of 2014. If the treatment effect of ibrutinib in comparison to ofatumumab is deemed statistically favorable by an independent review committee, a discussion with the FDA and other health authorities for a potential early filing may take place.
  • RESONATE™-17 (PCYC-1117): Phase II study of ibrutinib in a single-arm, open-label, multi-center trial using ibrutinib as a monotherapy in patients who have deletion 17p and who did not respond to or relapsed after at least one prior treatment (a high unmet need population) started in the first quarter of 2013. The primary endpoint of the study is overall response rate (ORR). This global study completed its enrollment of 145 patients more than two quarters ahead of schedule.
  • RESONATE™-2 (PCYC-1115): Phase III study of ibrutinib versus chlorambucil in frontline newly diagnosed elderly CLL/SLL patients started in the first quarter of 2013.

About ibrutinib

B-cells are the immune cells in the body that are responsible for producing antibodies to fight infections and provide long term immunity. Ibrutinib is a B-cell receptor pathway inhibitor that interferes with the proteins involved in signaling and it effectively blocks signals that tell B-cells to grow and divide, uncontrollably. This therapy can help stop cancer progression while preserving normal, healthy cells. Ibrutinib is a first in its class, oral therapy and is a new agent that inhibits the B-cell receptor signaling complex that plays an important role in the survival of malignant B-cells.  It is one of the first medicines to file for FDA approval via the new Breakthrough Therapy Designation pathway, bringing new hope to many suffering from CLL and other B-cell malignancies.
