Jazz Pharmaceuticals Announces First Quarter 2011 Financial Results

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: JAZZ) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2011.

Total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were $50.9 million, compared to $35.2 million for the first quarter of 2010.  Total revenues included net product sales, royalties and contract revenues.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $21.8 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2010.  Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $26.8 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared to $6.1 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2010.  A reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income and the related per diluted share amounts is included with this press release.

Net sales of Xyrem® (sodium oxybate) oral solution increased 49 percent to $42.8 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to net sales of $28.7 million for the first quarter of 2010.  Net sales of once-daily Luvox CR® (fluvoxamine maleate) were $7.1 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $5.5 million for the prior year period, an increase of 29 percent.

"Our first quarter results reflect strong sales momentum for Xyrem," said Bruce Cozadd, chairman and chief executive officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.  "We are committed to helping patients suffering from narcolepsy."

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2011 were $19.9 million, compared to $16.8 million for the first quarter of 2010, primarily due to higher headcount related expenses, including stock based compensation, and legal and information technology expenses.  Research and development expenses for the first quarter of 2011 were $3.7 million, compared to $6.2 million for the first quarter of 2010, reflecting lower product development spending.Interest expense for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.8 million, compared to $5.8 million for the prior year period.  As of March 31, 2011, cash and cash equivalents were $65.1 million, an increase of 45 percent from $44.8 million at December 31, 2010.

Pipeline DevelopmentsJazz Pharmaceuticals is also providing an update on its JZP-6 and JZP-8 development programs:

  • The company has decided that it will not proceed with the additional clinical studies to support the development of JZP-6 (sodium oxybate) in fibromyalgia requested by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in its October 2010 complete response letter.  This decision follows an internal analysis of the cost, development time and likelihood of regulatory success associated with further clinical development.
  • Given the estimated costs, development timeline and competitive environment for JZP-8 (intranasal clonazepam), the company is reevaluating whether or how to proceed with additional development.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement our financial results and financial guidance presented on a GAAP basis, we use the non-GAAP measures adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share.  We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our potential future results.  They are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Our management regularly uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions.  Compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures.  In addition, we believe that the use of these non-GAAP measures enhances the ability of investors to compare our results from period to period.  Investors should note that adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share, as used by Jazz Pharmaceuticals, may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by our competitors and other companies.  Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share exclude from the comparable GAAP measures:  revenue related to upfront and milestone payments, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, and non-cash interest expense associated with a debt discount and debt issuance costs.
