Vanda Pharmaceuticals Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 and Full Year 2012 Results

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Vanda) (NASDAQ: VNDA), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders, today announced financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

Key Highlights:

  • Vanda reported positive SET and RESET Phase III efficacy studies for tasimelteon in the treatment of patients with Non-24-Hour Disorder (Non-24).  Study results demonstrate tasimelteon is a unique circadian regulator that resets the master body clock and improves clinical symptoms in patients with Non-24.
  • The tasimelteon Non-24 program continues towards the goal of a projected mid-2013 New Drug Application (NDA) filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 
  • All tasimelteon activities have been discontinued related to the Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) indication.  In January 2013, Vanda announced that the MAGELLAN Phase IIb/III clinical study did not meet its primary endpoint.
  • Vanda has formally requested a re-examination of the negative opinion issued by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommending against approval of Fanaptum (oral iloperidone tablets) in the European Union. 
  • Vanda recorded full year 2012 revenue of $32.7 million including Fanapt® royalties of $5.9 million.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 38,200 for the fourth quarter of 2012.  This represents a 1% decrease versus third quarter 2012 prescriptions and a 13% increase over fourth quarter 2011 prescriptions.   


FULL YEAR 2012 REPORTED RESULTS

Total revenues for the full year 2012 were $32.7 million, compared to $31.3 million for 2011.  Full year 2012 revenues included $5.9 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis, as compared to $4.5 million for the prior year.  Both 2012 and 2011 revenues include $26.8 million recognized from the $200.0 million upfront payment previously received from Novartis for Fanapt® U.S. and Canadian rights. 

Total operating expenses for 2012 were $61.0 million, compared to $42.0 million for 2011.  The primary driver of the higher expenses in 2012 was the ongoing support of the tasimelteon Non-24 and MDD clinical studies.

Vanda recorded a net loss of $27.7 million for 2012, compared to net loss of $9.8 million for 2011.  Diluted net loss per share for 2012 was $0.98, compared to a diluted net loss per share of $0.35 for 2011.

Vanda's cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of December 31, 2012 totaled $120.4 million.

FOURTH QUARTER 2012 REPORTED RESULTS

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $7.9 million, compared to $8.4 million for 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 revenues included $1.2 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to royalties of $1.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.   

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 were each $14.3 million.

Vanda recorded a net loss of $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $5.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  Diluted net loss per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.23, compared to a diluted net loss of $0.20 per share for the fourth quarter of 2011.

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

In December 2012 and January 2013, Vanda announced positive results for two Phase III studies for tasimelteon in the treatment of Non-24.  The SET Phase III study demonstrated that tasimelteon was able to entrain the master body clock as measured by melatonin and cortisol circadian rhythms.  Tasimelteon was also shown to significantly improve clinical symptoms across a number of sleep and wake measures.  These results provided robust evidence of direct and clinically meaningful benefits to patients with Non-24.  The RESET Phase III study demonstrated the maintenance effect of 20mg of tasimelteon to entrain melatonin and cortisol circadian rhythms in individuals with Non-24.   Patients treated with tasimelteon maintained their clinical benefits while patients receiving placebo showed significant deterioration in measures of nighttime sleep, daytime naps and timing of sleep.  Non-24 is a serious, rare circadian rhythm disorder that affects a majority of totally blind individuals who lack light perception and cannot entrain (reset) their master body clock to the 24-hour day.  Currently there is no approved treatment for Non-24.

Vanda plans to submit an NDA to the FDA in mid-2013.  Vanda will meet with the FDA in Q1 of 2013 for a pre-NDA meeting on tasimelteon in the treatment of patients with Non-24.

Vanda has decided to discontinue all activities related to the MDD indication.  In January, Vanda announced that the MAGELLAN Phase IIb/III clinical study in MDD did not meet the primary endpoint of a change from baseline in the Hamilton Depression Scale (HAMD-17) after 8 weeks of treatment as compared to placebo. 

Vanda has formally appealed the EMA's negative opinion for Fanaptum (oral iloperidone tablets) and requested a re-examination of the decision by the EMA's Committee for Medicinal Product for Human Use (CHMP).  In December 2012, the CHMP issued a negative opinion recommending against approval of Fanaptum for the treatment of schizophrenia in adult patients in the European Union.  

Vanda recorded full year 2012 revenue of $32.7 million including Fanapt® royalties of $5.9 million.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 38,200 for the fourth quarter of 2012.  This represents a 1% decrease versus third quarter 2012 prescriptions and a 13% increase over fourth quarter 2011 prescriptions.
