Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Pipeline Update

November 7, 2019 at 4:00 PM EST

Topline data from Cohort 1 of ZENITH20 trial evaluating poziotinib for NSCLC expected in December

Basket trial initiated to study poziotinib in patients with EGFR or HER2 mutation-positive malignant solid tumors in an investigator-led study at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

ROLONTIS®(eflapegrastim) Biologics License Application (BLA) submitted on October 24, 2019

HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2019-- Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SPPI), a biopharmaceutical company focused on novel and targeted oncology therapies, announced today financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2019.

“Spectrum has an expanding pipeline, significant near-term milestones, solid capitalization and a highly focused team,” said Joe Turgeon, President and CEO, Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. “In December, we look forward to results from Cohort 1 of our ZENITH20 study investigating poziotinib in lung cancer patients with hard-to-treat mutations. We recently submitted our BLA for ROLONTIS to the FDA, a key milestone, as we continue to execute on our strategic priorities.”

Pipeline Updates

Poziotinib, an irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting EGFR and HER2 mutations

  • Topline results from the EGFR previously treated non-small cell lung cancer cohort (Cohort 1) in the ZENITH20 trial are expected in December. These data could potentially support a New Drug Application (NDA) filing with the FDA.
  • The HER2 previously-treated non-small cell lung cancer cohort (Cohort 2) of the ZENITH20 trial is fully accrued and is expected to have topline results by mid-year 2020. This cohort also has the potential to support an NDA filing with the FDA in the future.
  • A basket study has been initiated to investigate poziotinib in patients with EGFR or HER2 mutation-positive malignant solid tumors in an investigator-led study, with the first patient enrolled at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
  • In September, new preclinical data from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, was presented during the IASLC 2019 World Conference on Lung Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. These scientific data support the recently announced expansion of the ZENITH20 trial.

ROLONTIS (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting GCSF

  • Spectrum submitted the ROLONTIS BLA to the FDA on October 24, 2019.
  • In October, Spectrum presented a poster at the ASCO Supportive Care in Oncology Symposium in San Francisco, CA, highlighting integrated efficacy data from the Phase 3 ROLONTIS clinical trials, ADVANCE and RECOVER which studied more than 600 patients combined and met all primary and secondary endpoints.
  • Integrated safety data from the ROLONTIS studies will be presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium meeting in December.

Non-GAAP research and development expenses were $16.1 million, as compared to $14.7 million in the same period of 2018.

About ZENITH20

The ZENITH20 study consists of seven cohorts of NSCLC patients. Cohorts 1 (EGFR) and 2 (HER2) have completed enrollment of previously-treated NSCLC patients with exon 20 mutations. Cohort 3 (EGFR) and 4 (HER2) are currently enrolling first-line NSCLC patients with exon 20 mutations. Cohorts 1- 4 are each independently powered for a pre-specified statistical hypothesis and the primary endpoint is objective response rate (ORR). In July 2019, three new cohorts were added to the ZENITH20 study that are all currently enrolling patients. Cohort 5 includes previously treated or treatment-naïve NSCLC patients with EGFR or HER2 exon 20 insertion mutations. Cohort 6 includes NSCLC patients with classical EGFR mutations who progressed while on treatment with first-line osimertinib and developed an additional EGFR mutation. Cohort 7 includes NSCLC patients with a variety of less common mutations in EGFR or HER2 exons 18-21 or the extracellular or transmembrane domains.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (from Continuing Operations)

In this press release, Spectrum reports certain historical results that have not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), including non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP research and development expenses, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. Non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the tables of this press release and the accompanying footnotes. The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein are a supplement to the corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented exclude the items summarized in the below table.

Management believes that adjustments for these items assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that these items are not indicative of the company's on-going core operating performance. Management uses non-GAAP net income (loss) in its evaluation of the company's core after-tax results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in providing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision-making. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures also facilitates a comparison of the company’s underlying operating performance with that of other companies in its industry, which use similar non-GAAP measures to supplement their GAAP results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including other companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative tool. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures contained within this news release with our GAAP financial results.

(1) Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses (from continuing operations): These amounts reflect adjustments to reverse allocated operating expenses for certain non-cash items (including stock-based compensation, depreciation and lease expense), as well as the reversal of non-recurring severance expenses. We believe the resulting non-GAAP SG&A value is reflective of the period-over-period success of our administrative expense control and more indicative of our normalized SG&A expense trends.

(2) Non-GAAP research and development expenses (from continuing operations): These amounts reflect adjustments to reverse allocated operating expenses for certain non-cash items (including stock-based compensation and depreciation), as well as non-recurring severance expenses and R&D milestone achievements and upfront in-license fees that we record to this expense caption. We believe this resulting non-GAAP R&D value is more indicative of our normalized R&D expense trends.

(3) Non-GAAP net loss (from continuing operations): These amounts reflect all non-GAAP adjustments described in (1) through (2) above, plus other non-cash and/or non-recurring items, including: (i) adjustments to reverse the impact of income taxes; (ii) reversal of foreign exchange gains and losses (non-cash); (iii) reversal of the mark-to-market adjustment (non-cash) on our equity securities holdings; (iv) reversal of the realized gain on the sale of our equity securities holdings; and (v) reversal of debt discount accretion expense (non-cash) for our convertible notes during the prior year period.

(4) Non-GAAP net loss per share (from continuing operations): These amounts reflect all non-GAAP adjustments in (1) through (3) above to present our overall non-GAAP financial results for each period on a per-share basis.
