  • Webcast Today from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Medivation, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDVN) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 and reaffirmed full-year 2016 financial guidance.

U.S. net sales of XTANDI® (enzalutamide) capsules, as recorded by Astellas, were $307.6 million for the quarter (+37% vs. prior year). As anticipated, first quarter U.S. net sales reflected a higher gross-to-net (GTN) rate and a decrease in channel partner inventory compared to the fourth quarter of 2015 due to seasonal factors. U.S. XTANDI unit demand grew approximately 7% over the fourth quarter of 2015 and 33% over the prior year first quarter. Ex-U.S. net sales of XTANDI, as recorded by Astellas, were approximately $240 million for the quarter (+80% vs. prior year).

"Medivation is off to a strong start in 2016 as we continue to expand our leadership position in oncology, extend XTANDI's reach into urology and other areas, and advance our robust late-stage pipeline," said David Hung, M.D., Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Medivation. "The first quarter of 2016 represented a landmark quarter for Medivation as for the first time we claimed more than 50% market share of the novel hormonal therapy prostate cancer market in the U.S."

"As we look ahead, we believe there are a number of positive trends and milestones that will allow us to accelerate our momentum and create additional shareholder value," added Dr. Hung. "For example, as XTANDI is increasingly used as first-line therapy in metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, we expect the duration of treatment to continue to increase beyond the nearly eight months that we saw at the end of 2015. Furthermore, with the Committee for Medicinal Products opinion to include TERRAIN data in the European XTANDI label and the upcoming U.S. PDUFA date on October 22, 2016, we believe that we are poised to achieve even greater penetration of the urology market where the largest commercial opportunity lies for XTANDI. In addition to our plans to grow XTANDI, our wholly-owned assets, talazoparib and pidilizumab, represent compelling pipeline opportunities that we plan to develop and commercialize to drive long-term value appreciation for our shareholders."

Key Highlights Include:

  • Received positive opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency recommending inclusion of data from the head-to-head TERRAIN trial of enzalutamide versus bicalutamide in the European label for XTANDI.
  • Received confirmation that the supplemental New Drug Application for XTANDI in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) was accepted for review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which includes findings from the Phase 2 TERRAIN and STRIVE studies.
  • Enrolled the first patient in the ARCHES Phase III registrational trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of enzalutamide with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) versus placebo with ADT in metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer patients.
  • Announced data from an investigator sponsored Phase I study evaluating talazoparib (MDV3800) in combination with low-dose chemotherapy in patients with advanced malignancies and a Phase II study evaluating potential immune-activation properties of enzalutamide in patients with non-metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting.
  • Completed expansion and bifurcation of our sales force from 90 to 129 representatives.
  • Named Jennifer Jarrett to the role of Chief Financial Officer following the announced retirement of Rick Bierly.

Non-GAAP Financial Results:

Medivation's non-GAAP collaboration revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $182.5 million, compared with $127.8 million for the same period in 2015 (+43% vs. prior year).

Medivation's non-GAAP collaboration revenue consists of two components: a) collaboration revenue related to U.S. XTANDI net sales and b) collaboration revenue related to ex-U.S. XTANDI net sales.

a) Medivation's collaboration revenue related to U.S. net sales of XTANDI for the first quarter 2016 was $153.8 million, compared with $112.0 million for the same period in 2015 (+37% vs. prior year).

b) Medivation's collaboration revenue related to ex-U.S. net sales of XTANDI for the first quarter 2016 was $28.7 million, compared with $15.8 million for the same period in 2015 (+82% vs. prior year). Under the Astellas collaboration, the tiered royalty rate is reset at the beginning of each calendar year, resulting in the lowest royalty rate in the first quarter, and can increase up to the low-twenties as a percentage of ex-U.S. net sales.

Non-GAAP research and development (R&D) expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $68.4 million, compared with $37.9 million for the same period in 2015. The increase in non-GAAP R&D expenses primarily relates to direct expenses associated with our talazoparib program, which Medivation acquired in the fourth quarter of 2015. The sequential quarter-over-quarter growth in R&D expenses was modest at 11%, and this sequential growth rate should decline in the subsequent quarters.

Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $83.8 million, compared with $67.4 million for the same period in 2015. The increase in non-GAAP SG&A expenses primarily relates to higher personnel-related costs, higher sales, marketing and medical affairs costs, and higher royalties. In addition, consistent with prior years, first quarter SG&A expenses are disproportionately high due to certain annually recurring collaboration expenses incurred by Astellas that are expensed to Medivation in the first quarter of the year. As such, Medivation expects that its non-GAAP SG&A expenses will be lower in subsequent quarters, similar to the trend it observed in 2015.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2016 was $18.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $13.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015 (+35% vs. prior year on a per share basis). Consistent with the first quarter of 2015, our first quarter 2016 non-GAAP net income was impacted by several seasonal items including the lower royalty rate on ex-U.S. XTANDI sales, the higher GTN accrual by Astellas on U.S. net sales, inventory drawdowns and the previously mentioned SG&A expenses related to our Astellas collaboration.

GAAP Financial Results:

On a GAAP basis, Medivation's collaboration revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $182.5 million, compared with $129.2 million for the same period in 2015 (+41% vs. prior year). Medivation's GAAP basis collaboration revenue includes upfront and milestone payments for the first quarter 2015 (not included in non-GAAP collaboration revenue), which totaled $1.4 million.

R&D expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $77.6 million on a GAAP basis, compared with $44.7 million for the same period in 2015. SG&A expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $96.8 million on a GAAP basis, compared with $83.9 million for the same period in 2015.

Medivation reported GAAP basis net income of $4.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared with GAAP basis net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the same period in 2015.

At March 31, 2016, cash and cash equivalents were $317.4 million, compared with $225.9 million at December 31, 2015. The $91.5 million increase was primarily due to the receipt during the quarter of a $175.0 million sales milestone from Astellas offset by the repayment of $75.0 million borrowings under Medivation's Revolving Credit Facility.

2016 Financial Guidance:

Medivation is reaffirming its 2016 full-year financial guidance as follows:

(a)   Upfront and milestone payments from Astellas: Upfront and milestone payments are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they occur at irregular intervals and are not related to Medivation's long term core business going forward; such exclusion facilitates understanding of the ongoing economics of the business, facilitates period over period comparison and is reflective of how Medivation manages its business.
(b)   Stock-based compensation expense: Stock-based compensation expense is excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because of the nature of this charge, varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types; such exclusion facilitates comparison of Medivation's operating results to peer companies.
(c)   Contingent consideration: The effects of contingent consideration valuation are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because of the nature of this item, which is related to the change in fair value of the liability for contingent consideration related to the acquisition of worldwide rights to talazoparib from BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc., and Medivation's license agreement with CureTech, Inc. for pidilizumab; such exclusion facilitates comparisons of Medivation's operating results to peer companies.
(d)   Upfront license and milestone-related payments to third party and other adjustments: These payments and adjustments are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they occur at irregular intervals and are not related to Medivation's long term core business going forward; such exclusion facilitates understanding of the ongoing economics of the business, facilitates period over period comparison and is reflective of how Medivation manages its business.
(e)   Non-cash interest expense related to the Revolving Credit Facility and the Convertible Notes: The effects of non-cash interest expense related to the Revolving Credit Facility and the Convertible Notes are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because these expenses are non-cash expenses; such exclusion facilitates comparison of Medivation's cash operating results to peer companies and is reflective of how Medivation manages its business.
(f)   Loss on extinguishment of Convertible Notes: The effects of loss on extinguishment of Convertible Notes are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because this expense is a non-cash charge; such exclusion facilitates comparison of Medivation's cash operating results to peer companies and is reflective of how Medivation manages its business.
(g)   Income tax adjustments: Adjustments to income tax expense for non-GAAP financial measures consist of the income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments.
(h)   Shares used in per share calculation (diluted): In periods in which Medivation reports a GAAP net loss, all common stock equivalents are deemed anti-dilutive and basic and diluted weighted average shares are equal. Because Medivation had non-GAAP net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015, the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents is included in the non-GAAP diluted net income per share calculation for that period.
     

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Medivation's financial results presented on a U.S. GAAP basis, Medivation uses certain non-GAAP financial measures as shown in the tables above. Medivation believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding Medivation's past financial performance and potential future financial results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, and they should be read in conjunction with Medivation's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Medivation's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, budgeting, forecasting and performance measurement, to assess historical operating performance and make financial and operational business decisions, and also to provide forecasts and financial guidance to investors on this basis. In addition, Medivation believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors because it enhances the ability of investors to compare Medivation's financial results period over period and allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics Medivation uses in making operating decisions, and also because Medivation's investors and analysts regularly use them to model or track Medivation's financial performance. Medivation believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with a meaningful understanding of its historical and potential future financial results because they exclude certain non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation which is substantially dependent on changes in the market price of Medivation's common stock and the timing of equity awards, impairment charges, changes in fair value of intangible assets and contingent purchase consideration, revenues and expenses that occur at irregular intervals, such as milestone payments earned from collaboration partners and related payments to licensors of technology, non-cash interest expense and losses related to Convertible Notes. Investors should note that these non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Medivation's results of operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Investors should also note that these non-GAAP financial measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. In addition, from time-to-time in the future there may be other items that Medivation may exclude for the purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; likewise, Medivation may in the future cease to exclude items that Medivation has historically excluded for the purpose of Medivation's non-GAAP financial measures. Medivation's non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies.

About XTANDI®
XTANDI (enzalutamide) capsules is an androgen receptor inhibitor that blocks multiple steps in the androgen receptor signaling pathway within the tumor cell. In preclinical studies, enzalutamide has been shown to competitively inhibit androgen binding to androgen receptors, and inhibit androgen receptor nuclear translocation and interaction with DNA. The clinical significance of this MOA is unknown.

XTANDI is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

Important Safety Information
Contraindications XTANDI is not indicated for women and is contraindicated in women who are or may become pregnant. XTANDI can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.

Warnings and Precautions
Seizure In Study 1, conducted in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) who previously received docetaxel, seizure occurred in 0.9% of XTANDI patients and 0% of placebo patients. In Study 2, conducted in patients with chemotherapy-naive metastatic CRPC, seizure occurred in 0.1% of XTANDI patients and 0.1% of placebo patients. There is no clinical trial experience re- administering XTANDI to patients who experienced a seizure, and limited safety data are available in patients with predisposing factors for seizure. Study 1 excluded the use of concomitant medications that may lower threshold; Study 2 permitted the use of these medications. Because of the risk of seizure associated with XTANDI use, patients should be advised of the risk of engaging in any activity during which sudden loss of consciousness could cause serious harm to themselves or others. Permanently discontinue XTANDI in patients who develop a seizure during treatment.

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) In post approval use, there have been reports of PRES in patients receiving XTANDI. PRES is a neurological disorder which can present with rapidly evolving symptoms including seizure, headache, lethargy, confusion, blindness, and other visual and neurological disturbances, with or without associated hypertension. A diagnosis of PRES requires confirmation by brain imaging, preferably MRI. Discontinue XTANDI in patients who develop PRES.

Adverse Reactions
The most common adverse reactions (≥ 10%) reported from two combined clinical studies that occurred more commonly (≥ 2% over placebo) in XTANDI patients were asthenia/fatigue, back pain, decreased appetite, constipation, arthralgia, diarrhea, hot flush, upper respiratory tract infection, peripheral edema, dyspnea, musculoskeletal pain, weight decreased, headache, hypertension, and dizziness/vertigo.

In Study 1, Grade 3 and higher adverse reactions were reported among 47% of XTANDI patients and 53% of placebo patients. Discontinuations due to adverse events were reported for 16% of XTANDI patients and 18% of placebo patients. In Study 2, Grade 3-4 adverse reactions were reported in 44% of XTANDI patients and 37% of placebo patients. Discontinuations due to adverse events were reported for 6% of both study groups.

  • Lab Abnormalities: Grade 1-4 neutropenia occurred in 15% of XTANDI patients (1% Grade 3-4) and 6% of placebo patients (0.5% Grade 3-4). Grade 1-4 thrombocytopenia occurred in 6% of XTANDI patients (0.3% Grade 3-4) and 5% of placebo patients (0.5% Grade 3-4).

Drug Interactions

Effect of Other Drugs on XTANDI Avoid strong CYP2C8 inhibitors, as they can increase the plasma exposure to XTANDI. If co-administration is necessary, reduce the dose of XTANDI.

Avoid strong CYP3A4 inducers as they can decrease the plasma exposure to XTANDI. If co-administration is necessary, increase the dose of XTANDI.

Effect of XTANDI on Other Drugs Avoid CYP3A4, CYP2C9, and CYP2C19 substrates with a narrow therapeutic index, as XTANDI may decrease the plasma exposures of these drugs. If XTANDI is co-administered with warfarin (CYP2C9 substrate), conduct additional INR monitoring.
