"In the third quarter, we executed well against our strategic priorities"

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biogen Inc. (NASDAQ: BIIB) today reported third quarter 2017 financial results, including:

  • Total revenues of $3.1 billion, a 4% increase versus the prior year or a 13% increase excluding hemophilia revenues*.
    • Multiple sclerosis (MS) revenues, including approximately $65 million in royalties on the sales of OCREVUS®, were $2.3 billion, demonstrating the resilience of Biogen’s core MS business.
    • Revenue growth was driven by the launch of SPINRAZA®, which contributed $271 million in global revenues.
  • GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Biogen Inc. of $1.2 billion and $5.79, respectively.
  • Non-GAAP net income and diluted EPS attributable to Biogen Inc. of $1.3 billion and $6.31, respectively.

* In Q1 2017, Biogen completed the separation of its global hemophilia business into a new company, known as Bioverativ. The 13% increase in total revenues excludes all hemophilia revenues from Q3 2016. Hemophilia revenues include ELOCTATE® and ALPROLIX® product revenues as well as royalty and contract manufacturing revenue related to Sobi.

A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP quarterly financial results can be found in Table 3 at the end of this press release.

“In the third quarter, we executed well against our strategic priorities,” said Michel Vounatsos, Biogen’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our multiple sclerosis portfolio demonstrated resilience in an increasingly competitive market, and we’re encouraged by the strength of SPINRAZA’s global launch. We had a solid third quarter, and over the balance of the year we anticipate seasonal pressure as well as increased spending as we invest behind our strategic priorities.”

“We believe that our new agreements with Eisai and Neurimmune will improve our long-term economics of aducanumab. We are pleased by Eisai’s decision to exercise their option on aducanumab, demonstrating their confidence in the asset. The region-based profit split with Eisai is designed to leverage each company’s respective geographic strengths and infrastructures.”

Vounatsos continued, “We made important progress advancing our pipeline, including initiating new trials in Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy and completing enrollment of studies in stroke and Parkinson’s disease. In the next 12 months, we expect data readouts from multiple programs across our core and emerging growth areas.”

Collaboration Agreement Updates

  • In October 2017, Biogen announced that it renegotiated its agreement with its collaboration partner Eisai Co., Ltd. related to aducanumab, the Company’s investigational treatment for early Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Biogen will now receive 55 percent of potential aducanumab profits in the U.S., 68.5 percent of profits in Europe, and 20 percent of profits in Japan. This agreement leverages Biogen’s strong presence in the U.S. and Europe, and Eisai’s distinct advantage in Asian markets. In connection with this agreement, Eisai exercised its option to jointly develop and commercialize aducanumab.
  • In October 2017, Biogen also restructured its agreement with Neurimmune related to aducanumab. Biogen agreed to make a one-time payment in exchange for a reduction in Neurimmune’s royalty rate on potential sales of aducanumab.

Recent Events

  • This week Biogen is presenting more than 80 oral and poster presentations at the seventh Joint Meeting of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS and Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in MS (ECTRIMS-ACTRIMS, October 25 - 28, 2017). These presentations include updates on real-world data generation initiatives, including MS PATHS, which leverages technology in routine care to produce real-time data, and the Big MS Data Network, intended to provide pooled registry data from more than 140,000 people living with MS. Biogen is also presenting data supporting the Phase 2 investigational molecule opicinumab (anti-LINGO-1) as a potential therapy to repair damage to the central nervous system caused by MS.
  • In October 2017, Biogen’s collaboration partner Ionis Pharmaceuticals announced the initiation of a Phase 1/2a clinical study of IONIS-MAPTRx in patients with mild AD. IONIS-MAPTRx is an antisense drug designed to selectively reduce the production of microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT), or tau protein, in the brain. Biogen has an option to develop and commercialize IONIS-MAPTRx.
  • In October 2017, Biogen initiated the Phase 2b clinical trial AFFINITY, designed to evaluate opicinumab as an investigational add-on therapy in people with relapsing MS.
  • In October 2017, Biogen initiated the Phase 2 OPUS study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of natalizumab in drug-resistant focal epilepsy.
  • In October 2017, Biogen presented new data at the 22nd International Congress of the World Muscle Society demonstrating that earlier initiation of treatment with SPINRAZA may improve motor function outcomes in infants and children with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Results demonstrated the favorable efficacy and safety profile of SPINRAZA.
  • In October 2017, Biogen reported that BG00011 (STX-100) achieved proof of biology in a Phase 2a study in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The Company plans to initiate a Phase 2b study for BG00011 in 2018.
  • In September 2017, Biogen opened a new manufacturing facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina dedicated to the production of antisense oligonucleotide therapies (ASOs). This facility gives Biogen the capability to manufacture ASO drugs like SPINRAZA for the first time and will also support a clinical pipeline of additional ASOs.
  • In August 2017, Biogen completed enrollment in the Phase 2b ACTION2 study evaluating the effects of natalizumab versus placebo on clinical measures of functional independence and activities of daily living in acute ischemic stroke patients. Data from this study is expected in early 2018.
  • In August 2017, Biogen announced results from a recently conducted analysis of the long-term extension (LTE) of its ongoing Phase 1b study of aducanumab. The updated analyses include data from the placebo-controlled period and LTE for patients treated with aducanumab up to 24 months in the titration cohort and up to 36 months in the fixed-dose cohorts. The results are consistent with previously reported analyses from this ongoing Phase 1b study and support the design of the ongoing Phase 3 studies of aducanumab for early AD. Detailed data from these analyses will be presented at the 10th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD) conference. Biogen will webcast these presentations on the Investors section of Biogen’s website, www.biogen.com , at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET on November 2, 2017 (fixed-dose cohorts at up to 36 months) and approximately 11:15 a.m. ET on November 4, 2017 (titration cohort at up to 24 months).
  • In August 2017, the European Commission granted a marketing authorization for IMRALDI® (also known as SB5), an adalimumab biosimilar referencing HUMIRA®. IMRALDI was developed by Samsung Bioepis, a joint venture between Samsung BioLogics and Biogen, and will be commercialized by Biogen in the European Union. With this approval, Biogen became the first company with approved biosimilars in Europe for the three most prescribed anti-TNF biologic treatments.
  • In July 2017, Biogen completed enrollment in the Phase 1 study of BIIB054, an anti-alpha synuclein antibody, in both healthy volunteers and patients with early Parkinson’s disease.

A Amortization of acquired intangible assets for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, includes $30.4 million and $413.4 million, respectively, of impairment and amortization charges related to the intangible asset associated with our U.S. and rest of world licenses to Forward Pharma’s intellectual property related to TECFIDERA. As we prevailed in the U.S. proceeding in March 2017, we evaluated the recoverability of the U.S. asset acquired from Forward Pharma and recorded an impairment charge to adjust the carrying value of the acquired U.S. asset to fair value reflecting the impact of the developments in the U.S. legal dispute over certain TECFIDERA intellectual property rights. We also continue to amortize the remaining net book value of the U.S. and rest of world licenses in our consolidated statements of income utilizing an economic consumption model.

B Cambridge manufacturing facility rationalization costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, reflects $15.7 million and $31.5 million, respectively, of additional depreciation expense included in cost of sales, excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets in our condensed consolidated statements of income. Cambridge manufacturing facility rationalization costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, also includes a charge of $5.5 million for the write-down of excess inventory.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis by providing additional measures which may be considered “Non-GAAP” financial measures under applicable SEC rules. We believe that the disclosure of these Non-GAAP financial measures provides additional insight into the ongoing economics of our business and reflects how we manage our business internally, set operational goals and forms the basis of our management incentive programs. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for reported, or GAAP, net income attributable to Biogen Inc. and diluted earnings per share.

Our “Non-GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Inc.” and “Non-GAAP earnings per share - Diluted” financial measures exclude the following items from "GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Inc." and "GAAP earnings per share - Diluted":

1. Purchase accounting and merger-related adjustments
We exclude certain purchase accounting related items associated with the acquisition of businesses, assets and amounts in relation to the consolidation or deconsolidation of variable interest entities for which we are the primary beneficiary. These adjustments include, but are not limited to, charges for in-process research and development, the amortization of certain acquired intangible assets, and charges or credits from the fair value remeasurement of our contingent consideration obligations.

2. Hemophilia business separation costs
We have excluded costs that are directly associated with the set up and spin-off of our hemophilia business into an independent, publicly-traded company. These costs represent incremental third party costs attributable solely to hemophilia separation and set up activities.

3. Restructuring, business transformation and other cost saving initiatives
We exclude costs associated with the company’s execution of certain strategies and initiatives to streamline operations, achieve targeted cost reductions, rationalize manufacturing facilities or refocus R&D activities. These costs may include employee separation costs, retention bonuses, facility closing and exit costs, asset impairment charges or additional depreciation when the expected useful life of certain assets have been shortened due to changes in anticipated usage, and other costs or credits that management believes do not have a direct correlation to our on-going or future business operations.

4. Other items
We evaluate other items of income and expense on an individual basis, and consider both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the item, including (i) its size and nature, (ii) whether or not it relates to our ongoing business operations, and (iii) whether or not we expect it to occur as part of our normal business on a regular basis. We also include an adjustment to reflect the related tax effect of all reconciling items within our reconciliation of our GAAP to Non-GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Inc. and diluted earnings per share.
