Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2018 Pipeline Update and Financial Results
Poziotinib interim data from the MD Anderson Phase 2 study presented in Q3 demonstrated strong efficacy in metastatic, heavily pretreated EGFR and HER2 exon 20 mutations in NSCLC patients
Spectrum has submitted a request for Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) for poziotinib and expects a response from the FDA by end of the year
Enrollment of the EGFR, previously treated cohort in the poziotinib ZENITH20 trial is expected to be completed by first quarter of 2019
ROLONTIS® (eflapegrastim) Biologics License Application (BLA) filing is expected by the end of the year
KHAPZORY (levoleucovorin) for injection received FDA approval and preparing for a first quarter 2019 launch
Q3 revenues were $25.3 million, including $24.6 million in product sales

HENDERSON, Nevada - November 8, 2018 - Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SPPI), a biotechnology company with fully integrated commercial and drug development operations with a primary focus in hematology and oncology, announced today financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2018.

“In Q3 at the World Conference on Lung Cancer, MD Anderson presented poziotinib interim data in a heavily pre-treated population with exon 20 mutations, which demonstrated strong anti-tumor activity against this difficult-to-treat mutation,” said Joe Turgeon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. “We also actively expanded the poziotinib clinical program on multiple fronts including the initiation of two first-line cohorts in our pivotal ZENITH20 trial and the opening of study sites in Europe. Closing out the year, we expect to receive a response on the poziotinib BTD request and file a BLA with the FDA for our novel G-CSF, ROLONTIS.”


Clinical Program Overview:

Poziotinib, an irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting EGFR and HER2 mutations:
Updated interim data from the MD Anderson Phase 2 trial in heavily pre-treated, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with exon 20 mutations were presented at the World Conference on Lung Cancer in September.
In evaluable patients with EGFR exon 20 mutations, the confirmed overall response rate (ORR) was 43% and disease control rate was 90%. Median progression free survival (PFS) was 5.5 months (ITT).
In evaluable patients with HER2 exon 20 mutations, the confirmed overall response rate (ORR) was 42% and disease control rate was 83%. Median progression free survival (PFS) was 5.1 months (ITT).

EGFR-related toxicities (including rash, diarrhea, and paronychia) were manageable and required dose reductions in 60% of patients. Discontinuation due to poor tolerance was rare (approximately 3% of patients).
Spectrum submitted a request for Breakthrough Therapy Designation for poziotinib in previously treated metastatic NSCLC with EGFR exon 20 mutations and expects a response from the FDA by the end of 2018.
Spectrum’s Phase 2 ZENITH20 trial studying poziotinib in NSCLC patients with EGFR or HER2 exon 20 insertion mutations is well underway and enrolling in four distinct cohorts.
First-line cohorts in both EGFR and HER2 were initiated in the third quarter of 2018.
Enrollment in the EGFR, previously treated cohort is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2019.

ROLONTIS (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting G-CSF:
Spectrum had a positive pre-BLA meeting with the FDA in the third quarter of 2018 and expects to file for a BLA in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Data from the RECOVER Phase 3 study will be presented in a poster session at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium in early December 2018.

Financial Guidance
Spectrum is refining its full year 2018 revenue guidance and is now between $100-$110 million, revised from $95-$115 million. Additionally, Spectrum currently anticipates that its current cash and marketable securities will be sufficient to fund operations into 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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 product sales, net and license fees and service revenue, 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 product sales, net and license fees and service revenue: These amounts reflect adjustments to reverse revenue recognition for upfront revenue from out-licenses and revenue from milestone achievement(s) that do not consistently recur. The resulting non-GAAP revenue solely consists of our (i) product sales, (ii) percentage-based royalties from our licensees’ sales, and (iii) on-going service revenue. We believe this measure of non-GAAP revenue is more indicative of the period-over-period success of our core ongoing product sales and service revenue.

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

(3) Non-GAAP research and development expenses: 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 R&D milestone achievements that we record to expense for our in-licenses. We believe the resulting non-GAAP R&D value is more reflective of our true R&D expense trends.

(4) Non-GAAP net loss: These amounts reflect all non-GAAP adjustments described in (1) through (3) above, plus other non-cash and/or non-recurring items, including: (i) adjustments to reverse royalty expense on receipts from regulatory and sales milestone achievements; (ii) adjustments to reverse operating expenses for non-cash amortization and impairment of intangible assets (the reversal of these non-cash expenses allows for a clearer representation of the period-over-period success of our overall financial results and future working capital requirements); (iii) adjustments to reverse the impact of income taxes; (iv) adjustments to reverse the impact of mark-to-market contingent consideration (although our contingent consideration results from prior acquisitions and is a part of our business strategy, these adjustments through earnings typically result from variables other than our current commercial activity or other operating performance measures that are a focus of our management); (v) reversal of foreign exchange gains and losses (non-cash); (vi) reversal of debt discount accretion expense (non-cash) for our convertible notes; and (vii) reversal of the mark-to-market adjustment on our equity securities.

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