Halozyme Therapeutics Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2010 Financial Results

SAN DIEGO, March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HALO), a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing products targeting the extracellular matrix for the endocrinology, oncology, dermatology and drug delivery markets, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010.


"I am energized and excited by the performance and advancements that Halozyme delivered in 2010 as we executed on our broad clinical development strategies for our rHuPH20 technology," stated Gregory I. Frost, Ph.D., Halozyme's president and CEO. "Halozyme's research pipeline is positioned to achieve value inflection points this year including the results of three Ultrafast Insulin studies and the start of additional clinical trials for PEGPH20 in pancreatic cancer and for HTI-501 to assess its potential utility in cellulite. Our alliance partners should also demonstrate substantial progress in 2011 for products that utilize our technology as Baxter has stated it expects to file a BLA for HyQ (immunoglobulin subcutaneous) and Roche has stated it plans to announce top line data from the pivotal Phase 3 trial for subcutaneous Herceptin®."

Fourth Quarter 2010 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Halozyme began patient dosing for an Ultrafast Insulin clinical trial in type 1 diabetes patients who receive their insulin treatment with a pump. We believe the faster-in and faster-out profile of our Analog Insulin-PH20 makes it well suited to pump applications because it should allow patients greater precision in their efforts to fine tune their glucose control. Patients treated with insulin pumps represent a significant portion of the market, manage their disease aggressively, and are early adopters of new treatments and technologies.
  • Halozyme's two Phase 2 clinical studies that compare treatment with an insulin analog alone to Analog-PH20 for twelve weeks each completed patient enrollment this past January. Results from these two studies will be available to Halozyme internally during the third quarter of 2011.
  • Roche completed patient enrollment of its Phase 3 registration study for Herceptin® SC (trastuzumab subcutaneous) in December for the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer and has stated it expects to have results from this study by the end of 2011. In February 2011, Roche began patient dosing of the Phase 3 MabThera® SC (rituximab subcutaneous) clinical trial in patients with follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Roche has stated it expects to file for the approval of Herceptin SC and MabThera SC in the EU during 2012.
  • Baxter completed its Phase 3 clinical trial of HyQ, immunoglobulin with rHuPH20, at the end of 2010. Baxter has stated it plans to submit a BLA filing during the second half of 2011 and to launch the product in 2012. The worldwide market for immunoglobulin totals approximately $6 billion and Baxter commands a sizeable share of the market.

  • Fourth Quarter and Year End 2010 Financial ResultsThe net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $16.9 million, or $0.17 per share, compared with a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2009 of $12.7 million, or $0.14 per share. The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $53.2 million, or $0.56 per share, compared to a net loss of $58.4 million, or $0.67 per share, for the year 2009.

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $3.6 million, compared to $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenues under collaborative agreements for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $3.4 million, compared to $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenues under collaborative agreements in the fourth quarter 2010 primarily consisted of the amortization of upfront fees received from Baxter and Roche of $705,000 and research and development reimbursements from Baxter and Roche of $2.7 million.
  • Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $15.9 million, compared with $14.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily due to an increase in manufacturing activities.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $4.6 million, compared to $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, due to separation costs associated with staff reductions.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $83.3 million as of December 31, 2010, compared with $67.5 million as of December 31, 2009. Net cash burn for the fourth quarter of 2010 was approximately $6.6 million. Net cash burn for the twelve months of 2010, excluding the proceeds from the September 2010 financing, was approximately $44.2 million.
  • For 2011, management anticipates total operating expenses will be slightly higher than those reported for 2010, which were approximately $68 million. The increase for operating expense is expected to arise from costs associated with additional clinical trial activity. The company expects a net cash burn of $47 to $52 million for the year 2011.

    About Halozyme TherapeuticsHalozyme Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing products targeting the extracellular matrix for the endocrinology, oncology, dermatology and drug delivery markets. The company's product portfolio is based primarily on intellectual property covering the family of human enzymes known as hyaluronidases and additional enzymes that affect the extracellular matrix. Halozyme's Enhanze™ technology is a novel drug delivery platform designed to increase the absorption and dispersion of biologics. The company has key partnerships with Roche to apply Enhanze technology to Roche's biological therapeutics, including Herceptin® and MabThera®, and with Baxter BioScience to apply Enhanze technology to immunoglobulin. Halozyme's Ultrafast Insulin program combines its rHuPH20 enzyme with mealtime insulins, which may produce more rapid absorption, faster action, and improved glycemic control. The product candidates in Halozyme's pipeline target multiple areas of significant unmet medical need. For more information visit
