Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter 2016 Financial Results and Pipeline Update

  • SPI-2012 (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting GCSF: A pivotal Phase 3 study was initiated and is currently enrolling patients with approximately 60 clinical sites open for enrollment in the U.S.
  • Poziotinib, a novel pan-HER inhibitor: A Phase 2 trial was initiated and is enrolling breast cancer patients who have failed other HER2-directed therapies.
  • Apaziquone for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: FDA accepted NDA and assigned a PDFUA date of December 11, 2016.
  • EVOMELA(melphalan) for injection: Company recently launched the drug and early indicators are positive.
  • Q1 revenues were $43.9 million, including $35.2 million in product sales.

HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 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 March 31, 2016.

"We are pleased to report strong revenues in the first quarter and solid progress in our product pipeline," said Rajesh C. Shrotriya, MD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. "Spectrum now has six FDA approved drugs on the market, revenues from which continues to help fuel our pipeline. We initiated a Phase 3 trial for our lead pipeline drug SPI-2012 and now have approximately 60 U.S. sites open for enrollment. SPI-2012 has shown strong clinical data in Phase 2 studies and targets a multi-billion dollar market. We also initiated a Phase 2 trial for our breast cancer drug poziotinib, which we believe has the potential to be best in-class among small molecule HER2-directed therapies. Additionally, we expect a response from the FDA on the NDA for apaziquone later this year. We remain focused on these three programs, each of which we believe has the potential to transform the Company."

Pipeline Update:

  • SPI-2012, a novel long-acting GCSF: A pivotal Phase 3 study was initiated in Q1 2016 to evaluate SPI-2012 as a treatment for chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in approximately 580 patients with breast cancer. Neutropenia, a possible side effect of chemotherapy, is a condition where the number of neutrophils or white blood cells are too low, and can lead to infection, hospitalization, and even death. The Phase 2 data demonstrated that SPI-2012 was non-inferior to pegfilgrastim at the middle dose tested, and statistically superior in terms of duration of severe neutropenia at the highest dose tested. SPI-2012 was also shown to have an acceptable safety profile with no significant dose-related or unexpected toxicities.
  • Poziotinib, a potential best-in-class, novel, pan-HER inhibitor: Spectrum initiated a Phase 2 breast cancer program in the U.S., based on promising Phase 1 efficacy data in breast cancer patients who had failed multiple other HER2-directed therapies. In addition, multiple Phase 2 studies are being conducted by Hanmi Pharmaceuticals and National OncoVenture in South Korea.
  • Apaziquone, a potent tumor-activated drug being investigated for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: The FDA accepted the NDA and has given Spectrum a PDUFA date of December 11, 2016. The FDA also indicated that it plans to hold an advisory committee meeting regarding the NDA. The Company is actively enrolling an additional randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial under an SPA agreement. The Phase 3 study has been specifically designed to build on learnings from the previous studies, as well as recommendations from the FDA.
  • EVOMELA, a propylene-glycol free melphalan formulation: The FDA approved EVOMELA on March 10, 2016, two months ahead of the PDUFA date. Soon after, Spectrum launched EVOMELA with its existing sales force in a market estimated at approximately $100 million.

Three-Month Period Ended March 31, 2016 (All numbers are approximate)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Spectrum reports certain historical and expected non-GAAP results. Non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure 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 generally accepted accounting principles (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 providing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors to view the Company's financial results in the way that management views the financial 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. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
