Conference call scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET today

03 Nov, 2015, 16:01 ET from Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Vanda) (NASDAQ: VNDA), today announced financial and operational results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

"With another strong performance in Q3, Vanda is on target to achieve more than $100 million in net product sales for 2015, which represents a significant milestone in the history of the company," said Mihael H. Polymeropoulos, M.D., Vanda's President and CEO. "We look forward to growing our HETLIOZ Non-24 franchise, stabilizing Fanapt revenue and pursuing exciting near-term opportunities, including Jet Lag Disorder."

HETLIOZ® (tasimelteon)

  • HETLIOZ® net product sales grew to $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2015, a 17% increase compared to $10.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 and a 124% increase compared to $5.2 million reported in the third quarter of 2014.
  • A Phase III study of HETLIOZ® for the treatment of Jet Lag Disorder is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Preparations are ongoing for a 2016 European launch of HETLIOZ® for the treatment of Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder (Non-24).

Fanapt® (iloperidone)

  • Fanapt® net product sales of $16.7 million during the third quarter of 2015 reflected a 5% decline as compared to net product sales of $17.6 million recorded in the second quarter of 2015 and a 1% decline compared to $16.9 million reported by Novartis for Fanapt® in the third quarter of 2014.
  • Since August 2015, five additional Fanapt® patents were listed in the U.S Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Orange Book further expanding the method of use patent portfolio for Fanapt® which now includes nine method patents with expiry dates that range from 2025 to 2031.
  • In September 2015, the FDA accepted for review a supplemental New Drug Application for Fanapt® for the maintenance treatment of schizophrenia in adults. The FDA has set a PDUFA goal date in May 2016 to complete its review.
  • Vanda expects to file for European regulatory approval of oral Fanapt® in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $144.3 million as of September 30, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Vanda Non-GAAP total revenues for the third quarter of 2015 were $28.3 million, compared to Non-GAAP total revenues of $7.0 million for the third quarter of 2014. 

For the third quarter of 2015, Non-GAAP net loss was $4.5 million, or $0.11 per share, compared with a Non-GAAP net loss of $7.2 million, or $0.21 per share, for the same period in 2014.

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 release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Information" and "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information."

Vanda Affirms 2015 Financial Guidance

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 Fanapt® licensing 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)" and "Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share" 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 2015 Non-GAAP Operating expenses, excluding cost of goods sold, a forward-looking Non-GAAP financial measure under the heading "2015 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 the Non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

All written and verbal forward-looking statements attributable to Vanda or any person acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to herein.  Vanda cautions investors not to rely too heavily on the forward-looking statements Vanda makes or that are made on its behalf.  The information in this release is provided only as of the date of this release, and Vanda undertakes no obligation, and specifically declines any obligation, to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
