Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results and Pipeline Update

  • SPI-2012 (eflapegrastim) pivotal Phase 3 study is actively enrolling breast cancer patients in over 80 clinical sites in the U.S.
  • Poziotinib Phase 2 trial is enrolling breast cancer patients who have failed other HER2-directed therapies.
  • Qapzola™ (apaziquone) advisory panel scheduled on September 14, 2016, and FDA decision expected on December 11, 2016.
  • Q2 revenues were $33.9 million, including $30.9 million in product sales. The Company's sixth FDA approved drug EVOMELA® (melphalan) for injection was launched in the second quarter; formulary access and adoption in top institutions is encouraging.
  • The Company raised $45.1 million in Q2, and an additional $28.8 million in Q3, utilizing an at-the-market security offering.

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 June 30, 2016.

"I am very pleased with the progress we have made on our pipeline and our commercial portfolio," said Rajesh C. Shrotriya, MD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. "Our advanced development pipeline includes treatments for chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, breast cancer, and bladder cancer. The success of any of these drugs could transform the company. We are currently enrolling patients in the pivotal program for SPI-2012, which we believe has shown a compelling clinical profile in Phase 2 studies. In addition, Poziotinib has the potential to be a best in class pan-HER inhibitor, and we recently started enrolling breast cancer patients who have failed other HER2-directed therapies in a Phase 2 trial. Qapzola for post-surgical treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer is under FDA review and we look forward to presenting our case to an FDA advisory panel next month. We are making advances in our pipeline that could lead to novel cancer therapies that would benefit both patients and shareholders."

Pipeline Update:

  • SPI-2012 (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting GCSF: A pivotal Phase 3 study was initiated under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) from the FDA in Q1 2016 to evaluate SPI-2012 in the management of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in approximately 580 patients with breast cancer. Enrollment is on track and the company expects to file a BLA in 2018. Moderate to severe neutropenia is a serious side effect of certain chemotherapeutic agents which 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 is continuing to enroll 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 in South Korea by Hanmi Pharmaceuticals and National OncoVenture.
  • Qapzola, a potent tumor-activated drug being investigated for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: The FDA is expected to make a decision on Qapzola's approval by the PDUFA date of December 11, 2016. The FDA plans to hold an advisory committee meeting on September 14, 2016. The Company is actively enrolling an additional randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial under a 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.

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.
