Date:12/10/2013

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today announced revenue guidance for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2013, of approximately $109 million, as compared with actual revenue of $86 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, an approximate 27 percent increase.

The forecasted growth in revenues is driven by increased third quarter 2013 sales for Avastin®, Herceptin®, Lucentis®, Xolair®, Kadcyla®, Perjeta®, and Actemra® for which PDL receives royalties in the fourth quarter of 2013, along with the addition of the royalty payments from PDL's purchase of Depomed's diabetes-related royalties.

Queen et al. Royalties

Sales of Avastin®, Herceptin®, Lucentis®, Xolair®, Perjeta®, and Kadcyla® (the Genentech Products) are subject to a tiered royalty rate for product that is made or sold in the United States and a flat royalty rate of three percent for product that is manufactured and sold outside of the United States (ex-US manufactured and sold). The net sales thresholds and the applicable royalty rates for the Genentech Products are outlined below:Genentech Products Made or Sold in USRoyalty RateNet sales up to $1.5 billion3.0%Net sales between $1.5 billion and up to $2.5 billion2.5%Net sales between $2.5 billion and up to $4.0 billion2.0%Net sales exceeding $4.0 billion1.0%Genentech Products Made and Sold ex-USNet sales3.0%The fourth quarter royalty payment received from Genentech included royalties based on worldwide sales.

Revenue guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013 is net of an estimated payment due under our February 2011 settlement agreement with Novartis AG (Novartis). PDL pays to Novartis certain amounts based on net sales of Lucentis, made by Novartis, during calendar year 2011 and beyond. The amount paid is less than we receive in royalties on such sales.

Reported worldwide sales for Avastin sales increased approximately 9 percent in the third quarter of 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012. Ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Avastin sales represented 39 percent of total Avastin sales in the third quarter of 2013 as compared with 40 percent in the third quarter of 2012.

Reported worldwide sales for Herceptin increased approximately 5 percent in the third quarter of 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012. Ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Herceptin sales represented 45 percent of total Herceptin sales in the third quarter of 2013 as compared with 35 percent in the third quarter of 2012.

Reported worldwide sales for Lucentis increased approximately 9 percent in the third quarter of 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012. All sales of Lucentis were from inventory produced in the United States.

Reported worldwide sales for Tysabri®, a Biogen Idec product, decreased approximately 1 percent for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Tysabri royalties are determined at a flat rate as a percentage of sales regardless of location of manufacture or sale.

The sales information presented above is based on information provided by PDL's licensees in their quarterly reports to the Company as well as from public disclosures made by PDL's licensees.

Depomed Royalties

Currently, the majority of the revenue from Depomed is related to royalties from the sales of Glumetza®.  PDL generally recognizes royalty revenues from Glumetza in the month received by us, that is, royalty revenues are generally recognized one month following the month in which sales by the licensees occurred. PDL estimates that Depomed royalty revenues will be approximately $10 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, which primarily relates to royalties from the two months of sales of Glumetza in the fourth quarter of 2013 following PDL's acquisition of the royalties.
