Date:9/9/2013

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (NASDAQ: PDLI) today announced revenue guidance for the third quarter ending September 30, 2013, of approximately $97 million, as compared with actual revenue of $85 million for the third quarter of 2012, an approximate 14 percent increase.

The forecasted growth in revenues is driven by increased second quarter 2013 sales for Avastin®, Herceptin®, Lucentis®, Xolair®, Kadcyla®, Perjeta®, and Actemra® for which PDL receives royalties in the third quarter of 2013.  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 US

Royalty RateNet sales up to $1.5 billion

3.0%Net sales between $1.5 billion and up to $2.5 billion

2.5%Net sales between $2.5 billion and up to $4.0 billion

2.0%Net sales exceeding $4.0 billion

1.0%Genentech Products Made and Sold ex-USNet sales

3.0%The third quarter royalty payment received from Genentech included royalties based on worldwide sales.

Revenue guidance for the third 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 increased approximately 13 percent in the second quarter of 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012.  Ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Avastin sales represented 38 percent of total Avastin sales in the second quarter of 2013 as compared with 29 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

Reported worldwide sales for Herceptin increased approximately 1 percent in the second quarter of 2013 when compared to the same period in 2012. Ex-U.S. manufactured and sold Herceptin sales represented 38 percent of total Herceptin sales in the second quarter of 2013 as compared with 37 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

Reported worldwide sales for Lucentis increased approximately 9 percent in the second 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 second 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.
