Amylin Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter Financial Results
Date:11/4/2010

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMLN) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. The Company reported total revenue of $156.1 million for the third quarter, including net product sales of $154.0 million. GAAP net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $50.7 million, or $0.35 per share compared to $26.7 million, or $0.19 per share for the same period in 2009. Net loss excluding restructuring charges of $6.0 million was $44.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Non-GAAP operating loss was $16.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to non-GAAP operating income of $0.6 million for the same period in 2009. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010 non-GAAP operating loss was $27.3 million, a 34% improvement over the $41.6 million non-GAAP operating loss for the same period in 2009. At September 30, 2010 the Company held cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $537.7 million.

"While disappointed about the complete response letter for BYDUREON, we are more committed than ever to working closely with the FDA to bring this important therapy to people with type 2 diabetes as quickly as possible," said Daniel M. Bradbury, president and chief executive officer at Amylin Pharmaceuticals. "Our year-to-date reduction in non-GAAP operating loss reflects the financial discipline we have implemented across our organization. We are operating from a strong cash position and will continue to drive revenue from BYETTA and SYMLIN and control our expenses in order to deliver strong financial performance for our shareholders."

Third Quarter HighlightsHighlights of Amylin's third quarter and recent activities include:

  • Announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a complete response letter regarding the New Drug Application (NDA) for BYDUREON™ (exenatide extended-release for injectable suspension).  The FDA requested a thorough QT (tQT) study with exposures of exenatide higher than typical therapeutic levels of BYDUREON, as well as the results of the DURATION-5 study to evaluate the efficacy, and the labeling of the safety and effectiveness, of the commercial formulation of BYDUREON.  Pending discussions with the FDA, the goal is to submit a reply by the end of 2011. Based on the requirements for additional data, this will likely be considered a Class 2 submission requiring a six-month review.
  • Lilly received approval of BYETTA® (exenatide) injection in Japan for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in patients who have not achieved adequate glycemic control while taking certain oral anti-diabetes therapies in addition to diet and exercise
  • Presented the latest research findings at the 46th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) that deepened understanding of safety and efficacy of currently marketed diabetes products BYETTA and SYMLIN® (pramlintide acetate) injection, and underscored the potential benefits of BYDUREON
  • Clinical study of BYETTA added to a thiazolidinedione (TZD), with or without metformin, resulted in significantly improved beta-cell function and glycemic control compared with placebo. This study was used to support approval for expanded combination use of BYETTA with TZDs in the European Union
  • Analysis of antibody data showed that although patients may develop antibodies to exenatide, the titers peak early in treatment and decline thereafter, do not cross-react with GLP-1 or glucagon and are not predictive of safety and efficacy for an individual patient
  • Meta-analysis of approved or late stage investigational GLP-1 receptor agonists and DPP-4 inhibitors showed that while all therapies included in the analysis significantly reduced A1C and fasting glucose from baseline, treatment with GLP-1 receptor agonists resulted in greater reductions in fasting glucose and A1C as well as body weight when compared with DPP-4 inhibitors
  • Completed enrollment of phase 2 study of monthly-dosed exenatide suspension formulation with study results anticipated during the first half of 2011

  • Quarter Ended September 30, 2010Net product sales of $154.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 include $132.4 million for BYETTA and $21.6 million for SYMLIN. This compares to net product sales of $192.9 million consisting of $171.1 million for BYETTA and $21.8 million for SYMLIN for the same period in 2009. Revenues under collaborative agreements were $2.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $1.0 million for the same period in 2009 and consist primarily of the amortization of up-front fees received under the Company's collaboration agreements.

    Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $72.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $80.1 million for the same period in 2009. The decrease primarily reflects reduced business infrastructure expenses and the impact of a second quarter 2010 workforce reduction.

    Research and development expenses increased to $48.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, from $35.3 million for the same period in 2009. The increase primarily reflects increased spending for BYDUREON including costs associated with pre-approval inventory manufacturing, a recently initiated cardiovascular outcomes study and development activities for the exenatide suspension formulation.  

    Collaborative profit sharing, which represents Lilly's share of the gross margin for BYETTA, was $61.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $78.3 million for the same period in 2009.

    The Company's results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 included restructuring charges of $6.0 million associated with further consolidation of the Company's leased facilities in San Diego.

    Non-GAAP operating loss was $16.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to a non-GAAP operating income of $0.6 million for the same period in 2009. GAAP operating loss was $45.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared to $22.4 million for the same period in 2009. GAAP net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $50.7 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to $26.7 million, or $0.19 per share, for the same period in 2009. Net loss excluding restructuring charges of $6.0 million was $44.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

    Nine Months Ended September 30, 2010Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were $494.6 million. This includes net product sales of $488.8 million, including $422.9 million for BYETTA and $65.9 million for SYMLIN. This compares to net product sales of $569.7 million, consisting of $503.9 million for BYETTA and $65.8 million for SYMLIN for the same period in 2009. Revenues under collaborative agreements were $5.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2009 and consist primarily of the amortization of up-front fees received under the Company's collaboration agreements.

    Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $223.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, from $259.7 million for the same period in 2009. The decrease primarily reflects lower sales force and business infrastructure expenses driven by the Company's reduced cost structure.

    Research and development expenses increased to $136.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, from $134.9 million for the same period in 2009. The increase primarily reflects increased expenses for BYDUREON associated with pre-approval inventory manufacturing,  a recently initiated cardiovascular outcomes study and development activities for the exenatide suspension formulation, partially offset by decreased development expenses for the Company's obesity programs. The reduction in obesity spending primarily reflects development expense cost-sharing with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited.

    Collaborative profit sharing was $194.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $227.5 million for the same period in 2009.  

    Non-GAAP operating loss was $27.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, a 34% improvement over the $41.6 million non-GAAP operating loss for the same period in 2009. GAAP operating loss was $116.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $126.1 million for the same period in 2009. Net loss was $133.1 million, or $0.93 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $136.0 million, or $0.97 per share, for the same period in 2009.
