Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Pipeline Update
HENDERSON, Nevada - August 8, 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 June 30, 2019.
“We’ve made significant progress on our pipeline in the last few months,” said Joe Turgeon, President and CEO of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. “Most notably, we completed enrollment in our first two poziotinib cohorts in the ZENITH20 study and expect to see results from cohort 1 in the fourth quarter. Based on strong science, we’ve expanded the poziotinib development program to include additional areas of high unmet medical need in lung cancer. We also had a productive meeting with the FDA and expect to submit the ROLONTIS BLA in the fourth quarter.”

Pipeline Overview:
Poziotinib, an irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting EGFR and HER2 mutations:
The cornerstone poziotinb ZENITH20 trial currently consists of seven cohorts of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Cohorts Fully Enrolled
Cohort 1: Previously treated patients with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation; topline results expected in the fourth quarter 2019
Cohort 2: Previously treated patients with HER2 exon 20 insertion mutation; topline results expected in mid-2020
Cohorts Currently Enrolling
Cohort 3: Treatment naïve patients with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation
Cohort 4: Treatment naïve patients with HER2 exon 20 insertion mutation
Cohort 5: Previously treated or treatment naïve patients with EGFR or HER2 exon 20 insertion mutation
Cohort 6: Previously treated first-line osimertinib patients with acquired EGFR mutations
Cohort 7: Previously treated patients with atypical EGFR or HER2 mutation
Spectrum expects to initiate a basket study in H2 2019.

ROLONTIS® (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting GCSF:
Integrated data from both Phase 3 ROLONTIS clinical trials with 643 patients were presented in a poster session at American Society of Clinical Oncology 2019 annual meeting.
The analysis found that integrated efficacy and safety data from the two identically designed Phase 3 trials - ADVANCE and RECOVER - were consistent with results from the individual trials, demonstrating that ROLONTIS was non-inferior to pegfilgrastim in the reduction of duration of severe neutropenia (DSN) in all four cycles of treatment.
Spectrum met with the FDA and expects to submit the ROLONTIS BLA in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Business Development
In May 2019, Spectrum completed an asset purchase and license agreement with ImmunGene, Inc., a privately held biotechnology company.
The deal includes an exclusive license for the intellectual property related to the FIT antibody-interferon fusion technology drug delivery platform and two innovative early-stage drug candidates derived from the platform. 
Originally developed by scientists at UCLA, the FIT platform fuses interferon with a monoclonal antibody providing a mechanism for targeting many different tumor antigens and has the potential for broad application in oncology.
Three-Month Period Ended June 30, 2019 (All numbers are from Continuing Operations and are approximate)
GAAP Results
Spectrum recorded a loss of $28.8 million, or a loss of $0.26 per basic and diluted share, in the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, compared to income of $14.9 million, or $0.15 income per basic share and $0.14 per diluted share, in the comparable period in 2018. Total research and development expenses were $17.0 million in the quarter, as compared to $16.6 million in the same period in 2018. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $17.2 million in the quarter, compared to $16.4 million in the same period in 2018.

The company ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and marketable securities of $282 million.
Non-GAAP Results
Spectrum recorded a non-GAAP loss of $25.2 million, or a non-GAAP loss of $0.23 per basic and diluted share, in the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, compared to a non-GAAP loss of $28.8 million, or a non-GAAP loss of $0.28 per basic and diluted share, in the comparable period in 2018. Non-GAAP research and development expenses were $13.2 million, as compared to $15.4 million in the same period of 2018.

Notice Regarding Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended to date. These forward-looking statements relate to a variety of matters, including, without limitation, statements that relate to Spectrum’s business and its future, the Company’s ability to execute its long-term strategy, the timing of the BLA filing for ROLONTIS, the timing of the topline results from the poziotinib EGFR previously treated and HER2 previously treated non-small cell lung cancer cohort in the ZENITH20 trial, the potential for the two poziotinib cohorts to support an NDA filing with the FDA, the potential clinical applications for the FIT therapies, its potential for treating both solid and hematologic malignancies, the ability of the FIT therapies to meet currently unaddressed medical needs and the size of potential markets, the future potential of Spectrum’s existing drug pipeline, and any other statements that are not purely statements of historical fact. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current beliefs, expectations and assumptions and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. All such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and Spectrum undertakes no obligation to update or revise these statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Although Spectrum believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements involve many risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from what may be expressed or implied in these forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, the uncertainties inherent in new product development, including clinical trial results and additional analysis of existing clinical data, the possibility that Spectrum’s applications to the FDA and other regulatory agencies may not receive approval in a timely manner or at all, the possibility that Spectrum’s existing and new drug candidates, including poziotinib, ROLONTIS and the FIT therapies, may not be more effective, safer or more cost efficient than competing drugs, and Spectrum’s dependence on third parties for clinical trials, manufacturing and quality control. For a further discussion of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed in these forward-looking statements, as well as risks relating to the business of Spectrum in general, see the risk disclosures in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of Spectrum for the year ended December 31, 2018, and in subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K and other filings made with the SEC by Spectrum.

*This pre-tax gain on sale represents the $158.8 million proceeds from the Commercial Product Portfolio Transaction less our $121.2 book value of transferred net assets (inclusive of assumed liabilities) to Acrotech on the March 1, 2019 closing date, and after legal and banker transaction expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019 that aggregated $3.9 million.
**This income tax provision (benefit) represents an allocation of taxes as required under the intraperiod allocation guidance. Due to our aggregate net operating loss-carryforwards, no federal or state income tax payments are expected to be made relating to our current year activity, inclusive of our gain on sale of the Commercial Product Portfolio.
***The “Product sales, net” is inclusive of our commercial product sales for January and February 2019, as well as recognized EVOMELA product sales during the second quarter of 2019 to a single customer under an active contract that was not yet assumed by Acrotech. The negative revenue value reflects actual government chargeback claims received during the three months ended June 30, 2019 that were in excess of current period revenue for this interim EVOMELA supply arrangement and our then-existing allowance for government chargebacks.
****The “Restructuring - employee severance” negative value in the second quarter of 2019 reflects a current period reclassification to continuing operations “selling, general and administrative” and “research and development” expenses. This $2.4 million amount was previously included within “income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes” in the first quarter of 2019.

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.
