Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $160.5 million, compared to $75.5 million for the same period in 2011. Net sales increased primarily due to expanded prescribing of H.P. Acthar® Gel (repository corticotropin injection) by nephrologists in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome, as well as continued prescribing by neurologists in the treatment of MS relapses and infantile spasms. Net sales also benefitted from the initiation of commercial activities focused on the use of Acthar by rheumatologists in the treatment of on-label rheumatology-related conditions.

GAAP earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $1.03 per diluted common share, compared to $0.48 per diluted common share for last year's comparable quarter. Non-GAAP earnings for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 were $1.09 per diluted common share and exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense and depreciation and amortization expense. Non-GAAP earnings for the year ago quarter were $0.47 per diluted common share. Basic common share count decreased over 5 million shares from the fourth quarter of 2011 to the fourth quarter of 2012.

Questcor shipped 6,330 vials of Acthar during the fourth quarter 2012, up 88 percent compared to 3,360 vials in the year ago quarter. For the full year of 2012, Questcor shipped 20,741vials of Acthar, up 94 percent compared to 10,710 vials in 2011. Quarterly vial shipments are subject to significant variation due to the size and timing of individual orders received from Questcor's distributor. The timing of when these orders are received and filled can significantly affect net sales and net income in any particular quarter. 

The fourth quarter and full year results do not reflect Questcor's acquisition of BioVectra or the change, to be applied on a prospective basis, in the Medicaid rebate percentage for Acthar, both of which occurred in the first quarter of 2013.

"Net sales, net income and cash flow from operations grew sharply in the fourth quarter compared to the prior-year period," said Don M. Bailey, President and CEO of Questcor. "Additionally, we more than doubled our investment in R&D in 2012 compared to 2011 as we continue to build the body of evidence regarding the unique properties of Acthar and how it may benefit an increasing number of patients who do not respond to other therapies."

"Acthar is most commonly prescribed by physicians as an appropriate treatment alternative for patients with certain auto-immune conditions in whom first-line therapies have not provided the intended treatment outcome and an additional FDA-approved treatment alternative is needed," commented Steve Cartt, Chief Operating Officer of Questcor. "For such patients, insurance coverage for Acthar continues to remain favorable. Continued expanded use in nephrotic syndrome, MS and strong growth in our newly commercialized rheumatology indications, mainly dermatomyositis and polymyositis, contributed to the year-over-year net sales increase in the fourth quarter. While Acthar net sales in MS posted greater than 40% year-over-year growth, MS prescriptions softened by approximately 8% from the third quarter, after almost five years of sequential quarterly growth, and nephrotic syndrome became the largest contributor to net sales. At the same time, based on early, encouraging results from our pilot rheumatology commercial effort, we have just completed our rheumatology sales force expansion from 12 to 55 representatives." 

"We continue to invest in the future of both Acthar and our overall business capabilities," continued Mr. Bailey. "In addition to the rapid expansion of our R&D investment, we have also substantially expanded our sales force, our reimbursement and compliance teams, and our manufacturing capabilities. The recent acquisition of BioVectra, which gives us much greater control of our supply chain, deepens our manufacturing capabilities and scientific expertise, while also expanding and diversifying our business. The appointment of Michael Aldridge to lead our strategic development function was another important step as we look to broaden our capabilities and further diversify our business, while maintaining our focus on the potential of Acthar to help many more patients than it does today. We continue to balance our investments in the business with a disciplined program of returning capital to shareholders, as demonstrated by additional share repurchases and the institution of a regular quarterly dividend."

Full Year Financial Results

Net sales for the full year of 2012 were $509.3 million, compared to $218.2 million in the full year of 2011. Cash flow from operations for the full year of 2012 was $219.0 million, compared to $85.6 million for the full year of 2011. GAAP earnings per share for the full year of 2012 were $3.14 per diluted common share, compared with $1.21 per diluted common share for the comparable period of 2011. Non-GAAP earnings per share for the full year ended December 31, 2012 were $3.33 per diluted common share, excluding non-cash share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and impairment of intangibles. Non-GAAP earnings for the comparable period of 2011 were $1.27 per diluted common share.

Research and Development Programs

Questcor's continued strong financial performance has enabled the company to increase investment in research programs to further clarify the potential immune-modulating properties of Acthar and identify Acthar mechanisms of action applicable to other inflammatory and auto-immune diseases with high unmet need. Questcor currently has approximately 35 company-sponsored clinical and pre-clinical research projects underway. Key company-sponsored clinical programs are in process in the following disease states:

  • Lupus: Enrollment is underway in a company-sponsored multi-site Phase 4 clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of daily Acthar administration over a 6-month period in patients with persistently active lupus.
  • Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy: Enrollment continues in a company-sponsored Phase 4 trial in idiopathic membranous nephropathy. Patients enrolled in this study are refractory, or non-responsive, to current standard therapies or have relapsed after partial remission on current standard therapies.
  • Diabetic Nephropathy: Enrollment continues in a company-sponsored Phase 2 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Acthar in patients with diabetic nephropathy, one of the most common causes of end-stage renal disease in the United States.
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): Questcor is in discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to commence clinical trials of Acthar for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS is a life-threatening, progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  The company expects to file an Investigational New Drug application (IND) and initiate a proof-of-concept trial of Acthar in ALS in the first half of 2013.

In addition, Questcor provides grant funding to a wide range of independent research projects, which include the evaluation of Acthar in nephrotic syndrome due to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), nephrotic syndrome due to lupus nephritis, lupus flares, intractable chronic migraine, multiple sclerosis, prevention of infantile spasms in at-risk patients, and others. The company is currently funding more than 30 such independent research programs, including both preclinical and clinical studies.

Questcor continues to receive case reports and inquiries from physicians indicating that Acthar may be able to benefit patients whose serious illnesses are not effectively treated with other medications, but for which Questcor does not currently have an active sales force providing information to specialists who treat these illnesses. As it has over the last several years, Questcor continues to follow up on these reports and inquiries in order to ascertain whether the Company should fund research regarding the potential utility of Acthar in treating these serious illnesses. Past reports and inquiries have led to the company's current work in MS and rheumatology. More recent reports and inquiries may lead Questcor to expand its internal research and development, including clinical trials, and other activities within current on-label or potential new indications.

Share Repurchase Program and Cash Dividend

During the fourth quarter of 2012, Questcor used $18.6 million in cash to repurchase 747,207 shares of its common stock in open market transactions, at an average price of $24.93 per common share. Since the beginning of 2008, the company has repurchased a total of 22.2 million shares of its common stock for $340.3 million through December 31, 2012, at an average price of $15.36 per share. As of December 31, 2012, there are approximately 6.3 million shares authorized remaining under the stock repurchase plan. Shares outstanding were 58.5 million at December 31, 2012 and 63.6 million at December 31, 2011.

The company today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share to all shareholders of record at the close of business on April 22, 2013. The quarterly cash dividend was increased from $0.20 per share, or 25% over the previous quarterly dividend. The dividend is scheduled to be paid on or about April 30, 2013. Questcor currently intends to pay regular quarterly cash dividends for the foreseeable future.

2012 Corporate Highlights

  • During 2012, approximately 7,000 patients received new prescriptions for Acthar.
  • During 2012, additional academic papers were published providing incremental information regarding Acthar and its potential immuno-modulating properties and mechanisms of action.
  • During 2012, Questcor initiated two multi-center clinical trials, continued enrollment in a third, and initiated discussions with the FDA for a fourth trial.
  • During the second quarter of 2012, the company completed the expansion of its Nephrology sales force to 58 from 28 representatives.
  • In the third quarter of 2012, the company completed the expansion of its neurology sales force to 107 from 77 representatives.
  • In the third quarter of 2012, Questcor initiated commercial efforts for Acthar in the treatment of rheumatology-related indications already included on the FDA-approved package insert for Acthar. Acthar is indicated for multiple FDA-approved rheumatology-related conditions, including its use as adjunctive therapy in psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Acthar is also approved by the FDA as acute or maintenance therapy in selected cases of systemic lupus erythematosus and systemic dermatomyositis (polymyositis).
  • In the fourth quarter of 2012, the company initiated the expansion of its rheumatology sales force to 55 from 12 rheumatology representatives.
  • Questcor also continued to demonstrate its commitment to returning capital to shareholders, by expanding its common share repurchase program authorization by an additional 5 million shares and adopting a policy to pay a regular quarterly dividend in September 2012. The company repurchased 6.8 million shares in 2012.

Following the end of the fourth quarter of 2012:

  • On January 18, 2013, Questcor acquired BioVectra Inc. for an upfront payment of $50.8 million. BioVectra has been Questcor's manufacturing partner for the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in Acthar for nearly a decade. The acquisition further secures the manufacturing process trade secrets surrounding Acthar.
  • During the first quarter of 2013, the Medicaid rebate amount for Acthar was reset to the standard basic rebate.
  • On January 28, 2013, Questcor strengthened its management team with the appointment of Michael Aldridge to the new position of Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategic Development. Mr. Aldridge's primary responsibilities will be the identification and development of partnership and acquisition opportunities to leverage Questcor's business model. Over time, such initiatives may include development programs or products complementary to Acthar and the evaluation of potential expansion into ex-US markets.

Acthar Label Information

The product label for Acthar includes 19 FDA-approved indications. Substantially all of the Company's net sales currently result from Acthar prescriptions for the following on-label indications of:

  • Nephrotic Syndrome (NS): "to induce a diuresis or a remission of proteinuria in the nephrotic syndrome without uremia of the idiopathic type or that due to lupus erythematosus." NS can result from several underlying conditions, and prescribing physicians indicate that Acthar is most commonly being prescribed for patients who suffer from NS due to idiopathic membranous nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), IgA nephropathy, minimal change disease and lupus nephritis.
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS): "for the treatment of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis in adults. Clinical controlled trials have shown H.P. Acthar Gel to be effective in speeding the resolution of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis. However, there is no evidence that it affects the ultimate outcome or natural history of the disease." When Acthar is used, it is typically prescribed as second line treatment for patients with MS exacerbations.
  • Infantile Spasms (IS): "as monotherapy for the treatment of infantile spasms in infants and children under 2 years of age."
  • Collagen Diseases: "during an exacerbation or as maintenance therapy in selected cases of: systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic dermatomyositis (polymyositis)."
  • Rheumatic Disorders: "as adjunctive therapy for short-term administration (to tide the patient over an acute episode or exacerbation) in: Psoriatic arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, including juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (selected cases may require low-dose maintenance therapy), Ankylosing spondylitis."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company believes it is important to share non-GAAP financial metrics with shareholders as these metrics may better represent the ongoing economics of the business and reflect how we manage the business. Accordingly, management believes investors' understanding of the company's financial performance is enhanced as a result of the disclosure of these non-GAAP financial metrics. Non-GAAP net income should not be viewed in isolation, or as a substitute for, or as superior to, reported GAAP net income. The reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP net income is provided with the financial tables included with this release.

About Questcor                                                                                     

Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the treatment of patients with serious, difficult-to-treat autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. Questcor's primary product is H.P. Acthar® Gel (repository corticotropin injection), an injectable drug that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of 19 indications. Of these 19 indications, Questcor currently generates substantially all of its net sales from the following on-label indications: the treatment of proteinuria in the nephrotic syndrome of the idiopathic type, or NS, the treatment of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis, or MS, in adults, the treatment of infantile spasms, or IS, in infants and children under two years of age, and the treatment of certain rheumatology related conditions, including the treatment of the rare and closely related neuromuscular disorders dermatomyositis and polymyositis. With respect to nephrotic syndrome, the FDA has approved Acthar to "induce a diuresis or a remission of proteinuria in the nephrotic syndrome without uremia of the idiopathic type or that due to lupus erythematosus. Questcor is also exploring the possibility of developing markets for other on-label indications and the possibility of pursuing FDA approval of additional indications not currently on the Acthar label where there is high unmet medical need.
