13 Feb, 2014, 07:00 ET from Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2014 /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, 2013.

"The recent FDA approval of HETLIOZ™ marks an important advancement in the treatment of Non-24," said Mihael H. Polymeropoulos, M.D., Vanda's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We are excited by the opportunity to help Non-24 patients and are committed to providing much needed support and facilitating access to this new therapeutic option."

Key Highlights:

  • On January 31, 2014, Vanda announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved HETLIOZ™ (tasimelteon) 20mg capsules for the treatment of Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder (Non-24).  Non-24 affects the majority of totally blind individuals and it is estimated that approximately 80,000 Americans have the disorder.
  • HETLIOZ™ is the first and only FDA approved medication for Non-24.  Vanda expects  HETLIOZ™ to be available to patients in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Vanda is preparing to file a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for tasimelteon for the treatment of Non-24 with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) during 2014. 

FULL YEAR 2013 REPORTED RESULTS Total revenues for the full year 2013 were $33.9 million, compared to $32.7 million for 2012.  Full year 2013 revenues included $7.1 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to royalties of $5.9 million for the prior year.  Both 2013 and 2012 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 2013 were $54.3 million, compared to $61.0 million for 2012.  Full year 2013 research and development expenses of $28.2 million included $3.5 million in milestone payments associated with the FDA acceptance of the HETLIOZ™ New Drug Application.  The primary driver of the lower research and development expenses in 2013 as compared to $45.4 million in 2012 was the completion of the HETLIOZ™ Non-24 and Major Depressive Disorder efficacy studies.  General and administrative expenses of $24.6 million for 2013 were $10.7 million higher than for 2012 and reflect the increased commercial activity in preparation for the launch of HETLIOZ™in the United States.

Vanda recorded a net loss of $20.3 million for 2013, compared to a net loss of $27.7 million for 2012.  Diluted net loss per share for 2013 was $0.67, compared to a diluted net loss per share of $0.98 for 2012.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities (Cash) were $130.4 million as of December 31, 2013.

FOURTH QUARTER 2013 REPORTED RESULTS Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $8.8 million, compared to $7.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Fourth quarter 2013 revenues included $2.0 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to royalties of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.   

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $16.5 million, compared to $14.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Vanda recorded a net loss of $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Diluted net loss per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 and 2012 was $0.23 per share.

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS On January 31, 2014, Vanda announced that the FDA approved HETLIOZ™ (tasimelteon) 20mg capsules for the treatment of Non-24.  HETLIOZ™ is the first FDA approved medication for Non-24.  Non-24 was first described more than 60 years ago, and is a chronic, circadian rhythm disorder resulting from the misalignment of the endogenous master body clock to the 24-hour day, disrupting the sleep-wake cycle.  Non-24 affects the majority of totally blind individuals and it is estimated that approximately 80,000 Americans have the disorder. 

Vanda recorded full year 2013 revenue of $33.9 million including Fanapt® royalties of $7.1 million and $26.8 million in licensing revenue related to the amortization of the upfront payment received from Novartis for U.S. and Canadian commercial rights to Fanapt®.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 43,400 for the fourth quarter of 2013.  This represents a 1% decrease versus third quarter 2013 prescriptions and a 14% increase over fourth quarter 2012 Fanapt® prescriptions.  

KEY 2014 CORPORATE ACTIVITIES

During fiscal 2014, Vanda expects to focus on the following corporate initiatives:

  • Commercial launch of HETLIOZ™ in the U.S., which is currently expected in the second quarter of 2014
  • File a MAA for tasimelteon for the treatment of Non-24 in the European Union
