  • The FDA has scheduled a Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee Meeting on November 14, 2013, for the review of Vanda's NDA for tasimelteon, proposed trade name HETLIOZ, for the treatment of Non-24.
  • The FDA determined the action target date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA-V) for tasimelteon to be January 31, 2014. 
  • On August 7, 2013 Vanda completed the public offering of 4.68 million shares of common stock resulting in net proceeds of $48.6 million
  • Vanda recorded third quarter 2013 revenue of $8.7 million including royalties of $2.0 million.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 43,600 for the third quarter of 2013.  This represents a 13% increase over third quarter 2012 prescriptions and a 5% increase over second quarter 2013 prescriptions.

THIRD QUARTER 2013 REPORTED RESULTS

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $8.7 million, compared to $8.3 million for the same period in 2012.  Third quarter 2013 revenues included $2.0 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to royalties of $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2012.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $14.1 million, compared to $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2012.  Third quarter 2013 research and development expenses of $8.0 million includes $3.5 million in milestones associated with the FDA acceptance of the tasimelteon filing.  The primary driver of the lower research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to $10.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 was the completion of the tasimelteon Non-24 and Major Depressive Disorder efficacy studies.  General and administrative expenses of $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2013 were $2.6 million higher than the third quarter of 2012 and reflect the increased commercial activity in preparation for a potential tasimelteon commercial launch in the United States.

Vanda recorded a net loss of $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million for the same period in 2012.  Diluted net loss per share for the third quarter of 2013 was $0.17, compared to a diluted net loss per share of $0.19 for the third quarter of 2012.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities (Cash) increased by $38.5 million to $142.2 million as of September 30, 2013, primarily as a result of the sale of common stock in Vanda's public offering in August 2013.

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

On July 29, 2013, Vanda announced that the FDA accepted the filing of and granted a priority review classification to Vanda's NDA for tasimelteon, a circadian regulator for the treatment of Non-24 in the totally blind.  Currently, there is no approved treatment for Non-24 and tasimelteon has the potential to address this unmet medical need.  The FDA has scheduled a Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee Meeting on November 14, 2013, for the review of Vanda's NDA for tasimelteon, proposed trade name HETLIOZ, for the treatment of Non-24.  The FDA determined the action target date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA-V) for tasimelteon to be January 31, 2014. 

Vanda recorded third quarter 2013 revenue of $8.7 million including $6.7 million in licensing revenue related to the amortization of the upfront payment received from Novartis for U.S. and Canadian commercial rights to Fanapt® and Fanapt® royalties of $2.0 million.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 43,600 for the third quarter of 2013.  This represents a 13% increase over third quarter 2012 prescriptions and a 5% increase versus second quarter 2013 prescriptions.  

2013 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

2013 expenses are expected to reflect lower research and development spending as compared to 2012 and an increase in commercial spending.  Reflecting the recent public offering and year to date expenditures, Vanda now expects that it will end the year with between $130.0 and $135.0 million in Cash.  Total 2013 operating expenses are expected to be between $50.0 and $55.0 million and decrease in Cash, excluding the impact of the recent public offering, is expected to be between $35.0 and $40.0 million.
