Bioverativ Inc. (NASDAQ: BIVV) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2017.

Key financial results include:

  • Second quarter 2017 revenues of $289.1 million, a 37.5% increase year-over-year
  • Second quarter 2017 GAAP operating margin of 39.3%; Non-GAAP operating margin of 48.8%

“In the second quarter, we continued to execute across all aspects of the business, delivering strong commercial performance, completing the acquisition of True North Therapeutics, a leader in complement biology, and advancing our pipeline. The acquisition added a first-in-class candidate to treat cold agglutinin disease to our pipeline and plans are in place for this program to enter Phase 3 trials this year,” said John Cox, Chief Executive Officer of Bioverativ. “At the same time, we progressed our pipeline with BIVV001 entering a Phase 1/2a trial for patients with hemophilia A.”

“We believe we are positioned for continued success in 2017 and beyond. We will leverage our strong momentum to work to transform the lives of patients with rare blood disorders and to drive long-term growth for our shareholders,” continued Mr. Cox.

                       

Revenue Highlights

 
(In millions, except percentages)     Q2 ‘17 Q1 ‘17 Q2 ‘16 Q2 ‘17 v. Q1 ‘17 Q2 ‘17 v. Q2 ‘16
ELOCTATE® $ 174.2 $ 155.9 $ 124.6 11.7 % 39.8 %
ALPROLIX® $ 89.7 $ 86.0 $ 80.3 4.3 % 11.7 %
Total Product Revenues     $     263.9 $ 241.9 $ 204.9 9.1 % 28.8 %
 
Collaboration Revenues $ 25.2 $ 17.2 $ 5.4 46.5 % 366.7 %
                         
Total Revenues $ 289.1 $ 259.1 $ 210.3 11.6 % 37.5 %
 

Note: Percent changes represented as increase & (decrease)

The company delivered strong year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter growth. In the US, product revenues grew 28.6% year-over-year and 8.9% quarter-over-quarter. Product revenue outside the US grew 29.7% year-over-year and 9.9% quarter-over-quarter.

ELOCTATE continues to capture both new patients and patients switching from short-acting therapies and benefits from an increased shift to prophylactic treatment in hemophilia A.

Despite increasing competition in hemophilia B, ALPROLIX benefited from patients moving from on-demand to prophylactic treatment.

Collaboration revenue continued to deliver strong growth as Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi™) executed launches in its territories. Both royalty and contract manufacturing revenues increased in the second quarter of 2017.

 

Expense Highlights

 
GAAP
(In millions, except percentages)     Q2 ‘17     Q1 ‘17     Q2 ‘16     Q2 ‘17 v. Q1 ‘17     Q2 ‘17 v. Q2 ‘16
Cost of sales     $ 80.5 $ 63.3 $ 58.2 27.2 % 38.3 %
 
R&D $ 33.7 $ 36.9 $ 49.9 (8.7 %) (32.5 %)
 
SG&A $ 61.3 $ 47.0 $ 39.3 30.4 % 56.0 %

 

Note: Percent changes represented as increase & (decrease)

Cost of sales rose by $22.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2016 and by $17.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2017. This increase was primarily due to increased unit sales volume of ELOCTATE and ALPROLIX in our territory and manufacturing revenue in Sobi’s territory. An increase in the royalty rate paid to Sobi after their first commercial launches in 2016 and a modest increase in inventory write-offs in the second quarter of 2017 contributed to the cost of sales growth.

Research and development expenses decreased by $16.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2016 and by $3.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2017 due largely to prior period allocations from the former parent company partially offset by increased workforce costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses rose by $22.0 million compared to the second quarter of 2016 and by $14.3 million compared to the first quarter of 2017 driven by increased workforce costs associated with the build of our commercial and support infrastructure and acquisition expenses, partially offset by prior period allocations from the former parent company.

Tax

The company’s GAAP effective income tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and March 31, 2017 was 33.9% and 37.8%, respectively. The GAAP effective income tax rate year-to-date was 35.8%. This compares to GAAP effective income tax rates of (1.9%) and (1.8%) for the prior year three months ended June 30, 2016 and March 31, 2016, respectively. The differences from the prior year were primarily due to the realization of deferred tax assets resulting from net losses and business credit carryforwards in 2016.

The company’s Non-GAAP effective income tax rate was 33.8% and 34.1% during the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Cash Position

For the second quarter of 2017, the company’s weighted average diluted shares were 108.4 million. As of June 30, 2017, Bioverativ had $137.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $49.5 million in short-term debt.

On June 28, 2017, Bioverativ completed the acquisition of True North Therapeutics. Upon the closing, Bioverativ paid an upfront consideration of $395.7 million plus assumed cash, through a combination of cash on hand and borrowings.

Recent Corporate Events

  • Successfully completed acquisition of True North Therapeutics, a privately-held, clinical stage rare disease biotechnology company. The acquisition strengthens Bioverativ’s leadership in rare blood disorders with BIVV009, a first-in-class product candidate to treat cold agglutinin disease, a chronic autoimmune hemolytic anemia with no approved therapies and a second molecule, BIVV020, a discovery-stage, follow-on monoclonal antibody with the potential for less-frequent dosing.
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the company’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application for BIVV001 (also known as rFVIIIFc-VWF-XTEN), a novel, investigational factor VIII therapy designed to potentially extend protection from bleeds with prophylaxis dosing of once weekly or longer for people with hemophilia A. BIVV001 builds on the company’s existing Fc fusion technology by adding a region of von Willebrand factor and XTEN polypeptides to potentially extend its time in circulation. It is the only investigational factor VIII therapy in development that is designed to overcome the von Willebrand factor ceiling, which is believed to impose a half-life limitation on current factor VIII therapies.
  • Presented a wide breadth of data at the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) 2017 Congress from July 8-13, 2017, including clinical data from its leading extended half-life therapies ALPROLIX and ELOCTATE and preclinical data from its hemophilia pipeline.
  • Appointed Geno J. Germano to the company’s board of directors. Mr. Germano is a global biopharmaceutical executive with more than three decades of experience in the industry. Mr. Germano most recently served as President of Intrexon Corporation, a leader in synthetic biology. He also previously held the positions of Group President, Global Innovative Pharma Business, and President and General Manager, Specialty Care and Oncology at Pfizer, Inc. Prior to joining Pfizer, Mr. Germano held numerous executive and leadership roles at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, including President of Wyeth U.S., and Johnson & Johnson.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis by providing additional measures which may be considered “Non-GAAP” financial measures under applicable SEC rules. We believe that the disclosure of these Non-GAAP financial measures provides additional insight into the ongoing economics of our business and reflects how we manage our business internally, set operational goals and forms the basis of our management incentive programs. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for reported, or GAAP, financial measures.

Our Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following items from reported GAAP financial measures:

1. Share-Based Compensation Expense

We exclude the costs associated with incentive stock and employee stock purchase plans we maintain for the benefit of our officers, directors, and employees. For the periods prior to February 1, 2017, our share based compensation expense was derived solely from equity awards granted by Biogen to the company’s employees. Share-based compensation expense subsequent to the separation relates to equity awards granted under our share-based plans to our officers, directors, and employees including those awards that converted from Biogen.

2. Amortization of Developed Technology Intangible Assets

We exclude the amortization of intangible assets to facilitate an evaluation of current and past operating performance, particularly in terms of cash returns, and is similar to how management internally assesses performance. The developed technology intangibles primarily relate to approval milestones for ALPROLIX paid to the former Syntonix shareholders.

3. Biogen Cambridge Manufacturing Facility Shut Down

We exclude costs associated with Biogen’s Cambridge manufacturing facility shut down, which was primarily dedicated to hemophilia manufacturing. On December 31, 2016, the facility was subleased by Brammer Bio, LLC and is no longer used for hemophilia manufacturing. Management believes these costs are not representative of our ongoing operating results.

4. Upfront and Milestone Payments

We exclude costs associated with upfront and milestone payments relating to collaborative arrangements as management believes these costs are uncertain, result in different payment and expense recognition patterns than internal R&D activities, and are not representative of our ongoing operating results.

5. Release of Valuation Allowance

We had established a valuation allowance as of December 31, 2015 given our cumulative losses and uncertainty about our cost structure as a standalone company. During 2016, we determined that it is more likely than not that our deferred tax assets will be realizable and released our valuation allowance. Management believes the release of the valuation allowance is not representative of our ongoing operating results.

6. Spin-Related Costs

In connection with our separation from Biogen, we have incurred certain separation related expenses, which management believes are not representative of our ongoing operations.

7. TNT Transaction Costs

In connection with our acquisition of True North Therapeutics, we have incurred certain acquisition related expenses, which management believes are not representative of our ongoing operations. These expenses include banker, legal, tax, and other expenses.

8. Tax Effects of the Above Non-GAAP Adjustments

We include an adjustment to reflect the related tax effect of all reconciling items within our reconciliation of our GAAP to Non-GAAP adjusted net income.
