Spectrum Pharmaceuticals Reports Fourth Quarter 2016 and Full Year 2016 Financial Results and Pipeline Update

  • ROLONTIS™ (eflapegrastim) pivotal program is on track for Spectrum to file BLA next year.
  • Poziotinib study in non-small cell lung cancer patients with EGFR Exon 20 insertion mutations, being run in partnership with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, is expected to yield results before year end.
  • Qapzola™ (apaziquone) receives a new Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) from the FDA that significantly reduces the number of patients required for NDA filing.
  • Q4 revenues were $35.2 million, including $32.2 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 and year ended December 31, 2016.

"We made significant advancements in our pipeline throughout 2016 and I believe we are well positioned for transformational growth," said Rajesh C. Shrotriya, MD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Pharmaceuticals. "ROLONTIS is our highest priority drug and we are pleased that we remain on track for a BLA filing next year. Poziotinib, which is being developed for breast cancer has recently emerged as a potential treatment for a high unmet medical need in lung cancer. Data presented in December suggests that poziotinib has potential in lung cancer patients with certain genetic mutations that have poor prognosis and limited treatment options. An investigator sponsored trial of poziotinib in such patients with EGFR Exon 20 insertion mutations at MD Anderson Cancer Center could yield key results before year end. We have also obtained a new SPA for our late-stage bladder cancer drug Qapzola that significantly reduces the number of patients required for an NDA filing. Spectrum is in a unique position of having multiple opportunities to create value while benefiting patients."

Pipeline Update:

  • ROLONTIS (eflapegrastim), a novel long-acting GCSF: A pivotal Phase 3 study was initiated under a SPA from the FDA in 2016 to evaluate ROLONTIS in the management of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in patients with breast cancer. The Company is actively enrolling breast cancer patients in the current trial, expects to initiate an additional smaller Phase 3 trial, and continues to expect to file a BLA next year.
  • Poziotinib, a potential best-in-class, novel, pan-HER inhibitor: In collaboration with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, an investigator sponsored trial is being initiated in non-small cell lung cancer patients with EGFR Exon 20 insertion mutations. The study is expected to yield results before year end. Spectrum is also conducting a Phase 2 breast cancer trial in the U.S., based on promising Phase 1 efficacy data in breast cancer patients who had failed multiple other HER2-directed therapies. Further, multiple Phase 2 studies are being conducted in South Korea by Hanmi Pharmaceuticals and National OncoVenture to study additional cancer indications.
  • Qapzola, a potent tumor-activated drug being investigated for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: The Company received a new SPA from the FDA on a proposed Phase 3 study design. The Phase 3 study has been specifically designed to build on learnings from the previous studies, as well as recommendations from the FDA. Compared to the previous study, this study will use twice the dosage of Qapzola (8 mg), will evaluate approximately 70% fewer patients (n = 425), and will evaluate time-to-recurrence as the primary endpoint compared to recurrence at 2 years.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Spectrum reports certain historical "non-GAAP financial measures," as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Non-GAAP financial measures differ from financial statements reported in conformity to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In accordance with Regulation G, we reconciled each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures to assess our company's performance and allocate company resources, and 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. We believe non-GAAP disclosures also provide investors with information used generally in our industry for evaluating operating results. Investors should not place undue reliance on non-GAAP financial measures, nor should investors consider non-GAAP financial measures as more meaningful than, or as substitutes or replacements for, 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.

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 reported under 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.

Weighted average shares outstanding:
Basic and Diluted 78,401,381 65,370,371 72,824,070 64,882,417
 

(1) Non-GAAP product sales, net & 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: These amounts reflect adjustments to reverse allocated operating expenses for certain non-cash items (including stock-based compensation and depreciation), as well as the reversal of irregular operating expense items such as non-recurring legal fees and settlements. 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: 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 cost of service expense recognition for certain service arrangements that do not consistently recur (which corresponds with our non-GAAP reversal of license and contract revenue, as discussed in (1) above); (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; and (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), and (vi) debt discount accretion expense (non-cash) for our convertible notes.

(5) Non-GAAP 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.
