Horizon Pharma plc Reports Third-Quarter Net Sales Growth of 20 Percent Driven by Orphan and Rheumatology Net Sales Growth of 25 Percent; Increases Full-Year 2018 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance

Horizon Pharma plc (NASDAQ: HZNP) today announced its third-quarter 2018 financial results, confirmed its full-year 2018 net sales guidance range and increased its adjusted EBITDA guidance range.

We generated record quarterly net sales for the Company and for our orphan and rheumatology segment, driven by accelerating KRYSTEXXA growth and continued strong performance from our rare disease medicines, said Timothy P. Walbert, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Horizon Pharma plc.

Our clinical programs continue to advance, with the recent presentation of new teprotumumab Phase 2 data that underscore the durable efficacy observed in thyroid eye disease, continued Walbert. We are also working to maximize the role of KRYSTEXXA to help more patients, including adapting our MIRROR immunomodulation clinical trial based on promising recent data to support the potential for registration. These advancements, in addition to potential asset acquisition opportunities, support our strategy to build a robust pipeline enabling sustainable long-term growth.

  • New Phase 2 Teprotumumab Data Presented at American Thyroid Association and American Academy of Ophthalmology: At Week 24, 71.4 percent (30 of 42) of patients responded with reductions in proptosis (eye bulging) of 2mm or more and 61.9 percent of patients (26 of 42) responded with improvement of at least one grade in diplopia (double vision), which is considered a clinically meaningful change. At Week 72, 48 weeks following the study completion and nearly a year off therapy, 53.3 percent of the Week 24 proptosis responders maintained the reductions and 69.2 percent of patients with diplopia improvement maintained the benefit. These results demonstrate that teprotumumab has the potential to be a disease-modifying therapy. Teprotumumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody IGF-1R inhibitor in Phase 3 development for the treatment of thyroid eye disease (TED), in which the muscles and fatty tissue behind the eye become inflamed, which can lead to proptosis and diplopia as well as quality-of-life issues.
  • New KRYSTEXXA Immunomodulation Data Presented at American College of Rheumatology/Association of Rheumatology Health Professionals (ACR): At the 2018 ACR meeting in October, investigators shared results from a case series of nine sequential patients with uncontrolled gout (chronic gout that is refractory to conventional therapies), evaluating the administration of KRYSTEXXA with the immunomodulator methotrexate to improve the durability of KRYSTEXXA response. The study states that of the nine patients followed out to five months, all nine were responders as defined by >80 percent of serum uric acid levels being maintained at goal <6.0 mg/dL during the observation period. In its clinical trial MIRROR (Methotrexate to Increase Response Rates in Patients with Uncontrolled GOut Receiving KRYSTEXXA), the Company is evaluating the administration of KRYSTEXXA with methotrexate to potentially improve the durability of response rate. Following the external case series data, the Company is adapting its MIRROR trial to support the potential for registration. Methotrexate has been shown to reduce anti-drug antibodies when combined with biologics and is the immunomodulator most commonly used by rheumatologists.
  • Uncontrolled Gout and KRYSTEXXA Data Presented at ACR and American Society of Nephrology (ASN): The Company participated in both the ACR and ASN medical meetings, all in October. At ACR, multiple studies were shared demonstrating the extensive burden of uncontrolled gout and its impact on patients. At ASN, multiple studies were shared demonstrating that people who have undergone a kidney transplant experience higher rates of uncontrolled gout compared to other renal disease patients and mortality rates were higher in kidney transplant recipients diagnosed with gout.
  • Intellectual Property Update: The Company settled litigation with Par Pharmaceutical (part of Endo International), the first generic filer on RAVICTI. Pars license to enter the market with a generic version of RAVICTI would begin on July 1, 2025.

Research and Development Programs

Orphan Candidates and Programs:

  • Teprotumumab: The pivotal Phase 3 confirmatory study, OPTIC, is evaluating teprotumumab for the treatment of moderate-to-severe active TED, which has no FDA-approved treatments. OPTIC completed enrollment on Sept. 4, 2018, and topline results are expected in the second quarter of 2019. OPTIC-X, a 48-week open-label extension study in which participants may receive up to eight additional infusions of teprotumumab, continues to enroll patients. The objective of OPTIC-X is to evaluate the potential for retreatment and longer treatment with teprotumumab.

Rheumatology Pipeline Candidates and Programs:

  • KRYSTEXXA Immunomodulation Studies: The evaluation of the use of immunomodulation therapies to enhance the response rate to KRYSTEXXA is being studied in MIRROR, as well as two investigator-initiated trials. The three trials are evaluating different immunomodulators, each of which are used by rheumatologists.
    • MIRROR: a Horizon Pharma-sponsored multicenter, efficacy and safety study for KRYSTEXXA co-administered with methotrexate to evaluate the impact of methotrexate on response rate. Enrollment began in the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company is currently adapting the MIRROR clinical trial design to support the potential for registration and expects to begin enrolling patients into the adapted protocol in the second quarter of 2019
    • Two additional investigator-initiated trials co-administer KRYSTEXXA with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and with azathioprine.
  • Next-generation Biologic Programs for Uncontrolled Gout: The Company is pursuing two development programs for next-generation biologics for uncontrolled gout, HZN-003 and PASylated uricase technology, to support and sustain the Companys market leadership in uncontrolled gout. The programs are exploring the use of optimized uricase technology as well as optimized PEGylation and PASylation technology.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA are used and provided by Horizon Pharma as non-GAAP financial measures. Horizon Pharma provides certain other financial measures such as non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross profit ratio, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP tax rate, non-GAAP operating cash flow and net debt, each of which include adjustments to GAAP figures. These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information on Horizon Pharmas performance, operations, expenses, profitability and cash flows. Adjustments to Horizon Pharma’s GAAP figures as well as EBITDA exclude acquisition and/or divestiture-related expenses, charges related to the discontinuation of ACTIMMUNE development for Friedreichs ataxia, gain from divestiture, gain from sale of assets, an upfront fee for a license of a patent, litigation settlements, loss on debt extinguishment, costs of debt refinancing, drug manufacturing harmonization costs, restructuring and realignment costs, as well as non-cash items such as share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, royalty accretion, non-cash interest expense, long-lived asset impairment charges, impacts of contingent royalty liability remeasurements and other non-cash adjustments. Certain other special items or substantive events may also be included in the non-GAAP adjustments periodically when their magnitude is significant within the periods incurred. Horizon maintains an established non-GAAP cost policy that guides the determination of what costs will be excluded in non-GAAP measures. Horizon Pharma believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP figures, can enhance an overall understanding of Horizon Pharma’s financial and operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are included with the intent of providing investors with a more complete understanding of the Companys historical and expected 2018 financial results and trends and to facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the indicators Horizon Pharma’s management uses for planning and forecasting purposes and measuring the Company’s performance. For example, adjusted EBITDA is used by Horizon Pharma as one measure of management performance under certain incentive compensation arrangements. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Horizon Pharma has not provided a reconciliation of its full-year 2018 adjusted EBITDA outlook to an expected net income (loss) outlook because certain items such as acquisition/divestiture-related expenses and share-based compensation that are a component of net income (loss) cannot be reasonably projected due to the significant impact of changes in Horizon Pharma’s stock price, the variability associated with the size or timing of acquisitions/divestitures and other factors. These components of net income (loss) could significantly impact Horizon Pharmas actual net income (loss).

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2017, the Company recognized in cost of goods sold $54.9 million for inventory step-up expense related to KRYSTEXXA and MIGERGOT inventory sold and $40.8 million for inventory step-up expense related to PROCYSBI and QUINSAIR inventory sold.
(8)Impairments of long-lived assets during the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2018, primarily relates to the write-off of the book value of developed technology related to PROCYSBI in Canada and Latin America due to lower than anticipated future net sales.
Impairment of long-lived assets during the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2017 of $22.3 million relates to an impairment recorded following payment to Boehringer Ingelheim International for the acquisition of certain rights to interferon gamma-1b. This was presented in the charges relating to the discontinuation of the Friedreichs ataxia program line item in the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures during the year ended December 31, 2017.
(9)At the time of the Company’s acquisition of the rights to ACTIMMUNE, BUPHENYL, KRYSTEXXA, MIGERGOT, PROCYSBI, RAVICTI and VIMOVO, the Company estimated the fair value of contingent royalties payable to third parties using an income approach under the discounted cash flow method, which included revenue projections and other assumptions the Company made to determine the fair value. If the Company significantly outperforms or underperforms against its original revenue projections or it becomes necessary to make changes to assumptions as a result of a triggering event, the Company is required to reassess the fair value of the contingent royalties payable. Any subsequent adjustment to fair value is recorded in the period such adjustment is made as either an increase or decrease to royalties payable, with a corresponding increase or decrease in cost of goods sold, in accordance with established accounting policies. The Company recorded net decreases of $2.2 million and $2.9 million to cost of goods sold to adjust the amount of the contingent royalty liabilities relating to PROCYSBI during the first quarter of 2018 and to KRYSTEXXA and VIMOVO during the first quarter of 2017, respectively.
