Vanda provides Non-GAAP financial information, which it believes can enhance an overall understanding of its financial performance when considered together with GAAP figures. Refer to the sections of this press entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Information" and "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information."

2016 Financial Guidance

Vanda expects to achieve the following financial objectives in 2016:

  • Net product sales from both HETLIOZ® and Fanapt® of between $143 and $153 million.
  • HETLIOZ® net product sales of between $73 and $78 million.
  • Fanapt® net product sales of between $70 and $75 million.
  • Non-GAAP Operating expenses, excluding cost of goods sold, of between $125 and $135 million. The primary drivers of the expected increase over the prior year are investments in the U.S. Fanapt® and European HETLIOZ® commercial businesses. 
  • Non-GAAP Operating expenses also excludes intangible asset amortization expense of $10.9 million and stock-based compensation of between $9 and $11 million.
  • Year end 2016 Cash is expected to be between $123 million and $143 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Vanda believes that the Non-GAAP financial information provided in this press release can assist investors in understanding and assessing the ongoing economics of Vanda's business and reflect how it manages the business internally and sets operational goals. Vanda's "Non-GAAP Total revenues" excludes the Fanapt® licensing agreement revenue. Vanda's "Non-GAAP Selling, general and administrative expenses" and "Non-GAAP Research and Development expenses" exclude stock based compensation. Vanda's "Non-GAAP Net income (loss)," "Non-GAAP Net income (loss) per share" and "Non-GAAP Operating expenses excluding Cost of goods sold" exclude Fanapt® licensing revenue, stock based compensation, intangible asset amortization and gain on arbitration settlement.

Vanda believes that excluding the impact of these items better reflects the recurring economic characteristics of its business, as well as Vanda's use of financial resources and its long-term performance.

This press release includes a projection of 2016 Non-GAAP Operating expenses, excluding cost of goods sold, a forward-looking Non-GAAP financial measure under the heading "2016 Financial Guidance." This Non-GAAP financial measure is determined by excluding cost of goods sold, stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization. Vanda is unable to reconcile this Non-GAAP guidance to GAAP because it is difficult to predict the future impact of these adjustments.

These Non-GAAP financial measures, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies since not all companies may calculate these measures in an identical manner and, therefore, they are not necessarily an accurate measure of comparison between companies.

The presentation of these Non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these Non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in Vanda's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management in determining these Non-GAAP financial measures.  In order to compensate for these limitations, Vanda presents its Non-GAAP financial guidance in connection with its GAAP guidance. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our Non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
