Halozyme Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.


"With receipt of the complete response letter for the HyQ BLA, we will be working to address the questions raised by FDA's Blood Products Division regarding the subcutaneous plasma derivatives programs," said Gregory I. Frost, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Halozyme. "We are also pleased that after a review of the most recent safety data submitted, we have confirmation from FDA's Drug Division that no action is required on our approved product, Hylenex, or clinical programs under the Hylenex IND."

Second Quarter Highlights
Highlights of Halozyme's second quarter activities and recent events include:

  • Confirmed that Baxter received a complete response letter for the HyQ Biologics License Application (BLA) requesting additional preclinical data to support the application.  Additionally, the Blood Products Division requested that patients no longer be dosed with recombinant human hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) in the Baxter and ViroPharma subcutaneous plasma derivative programs, pending review of preclinical data.
  • Based on the most recent data submitted to FDA's Drug Division (the group regulating the other investigational rHuPH20 programs, including insulin and PEGPH20), the division has confirmed that no action is required against Hylenex or ongoing clinical programs under the Hylenex IND.
  • Roche announced that the Phase 3 study of the subcutaneous (SC) formulation of MabThera® (rituxumab with rHuPH20) met its primary endpoint of non-inferior MabThera serum concentrations after SC injection, compared with MabThera IV infusion in patients with follicular lymphoma. Roche also confirmed that data from this trial will be presented by the end of the year.
  • Presented data from two treatment studies at the American Diabetes Association's (ADA's) annual meeting that demonstrated Halozyme's ultrafast insulin formulations accelerated the absorption and action of mealtime insulins and may help reduce glucose swings. Both studies met their primary endpoint of A1C non-inferiority, significantly improved post-prandial glucose control and, in Type 1 patients, significantly reduced hypoglycemia compared to lispro alone.
  • Reported results from studies in insulin pumps at ADA that showed preadministration of Halozyme's rHuPH20 provided a more physiologic profile than current rapid insulin analogs. This also led to more consistent insulin exposure and absorption over the infusion set life. These data show that rHuPH20 preadministration may help people living with Type 1 diabetes achieve better glucose control after meals.
  • Presented data at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting that evaluated the safety and tolerability of PEGPH20 treatment, a pegylated form of rHuPH20, in patients with solid tumor malignancies, including pancreatic cancer. Data showed that PEGPH20 was generally well tolerated at the recommended Phase 2 dose, enhanced tumor perfusion and reduced tumor metabolic activity. These studies support the ongoing run-in phase of a larger study with chemotherapy in patients with pancreatic cancer.

    Second Quarter 2012 and Year-To-Date Financial Results
    The net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $(14.0) million, or $(0.13) per share, compared with a net income for the second quarter of 2011 of $3.1 million, or $0.03 per share. The net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $(29.1) million, or $(0.27) per share, compared to a net loss of $(6.5) million, or $(0.06) per share, for the comparable period in 2011.

  • Revenues for the second quarter of 2012 were $7.8 million, compared to $23.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. Revenues in the second quarter of 2012 primarily consisted of $2 million in annual exclusivity fees and $4.4 million in research and development reimbursements from partners.
  • Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $16.1 million, compared with $15.3 million for the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to an increase in compensation costs and manufacturing activities, partially offset by a decrease in clinical trial activities. 
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $5.6 million, compared to $4.6 million for the second quarter of 2011. The increase for SG&A was due to higher compensation costs during the quarter. 
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $102.0 million as of June 30, 2012, compared with $79.1 million as of June 30, 2011. Net cash used in the second quarter of 2012 was approximately $14.6 million.
  • 2012 cash burn guidance remains unchanged at $55-$60 million.
