Savient Pharmaceuticals Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results PR Newswire BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 14, 2013 BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Savient Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: SVNT) today reported financial results for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2013. Net sales for KRYSTEXXA^® were $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, a 38% increase over the first quarter of 2013. For the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, the Company had a net loss of $25.4 million or $0.35 per share, on total revenues of $6.7 million, compared with a net loss of $16.4 million or $0.23 per share, on total revenues of $4.6 million for the same period in 2012. The net loss for the first six months of 2013 was $49.9 million, or $0.69 per share, on total revenues of $11.4 million, compared with a net loss of $50.6 million, or $0.72 per share, on total revenues of $8.2 million for the same period in 2012. Savient ended the second quarter with approximately $51.5 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, a decrease of $17.3 million for the quarter. Financial Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Net revenues increased $2.1 million, or 44%, to $6.7 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $4.6 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, primarily driven by higher KRYSTEXXA net sales. KRYSTEXXA net sales increased $2.1 million, or 52%, to $6.1 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $4.0 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. The increase in KRYSTEXXA net sales is substantially due to the impact of our price increases for the product and to a lesser extent an increase in year over year sales volume. Since the beginning of 2012, we haveincreased the selling price of KRYSTEXXA by approximately 134% from the original list price of $2,300 per vial to the current list price of $5,390 per vial, effective May 17, 2013. We sold 2,058 vials and 1,883 vials of KRYSTEXXA during the three-month periods ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, an increase of 9% year over year. In addition, we sold 1,624 vials of KRYSTEXXA during the three-month period ended March 31, 2013. Co-promotion revenue of $0.4 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013 reflects revenue from the sale ofKineret^® based on our agreement with Sobi,which granted to us theright to co-promote the sale of Kineret in the U.S. We began marketing and promoting Kineret on April1, 2013. Cost of goods sold decreased $4.7 million, or 70%, to $2.0 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $6.7 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. The decrease is primarily due to a $4.9 million charge against operations for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 related to in process and finished goods KRYSTEXXA inventory. Research and development expenses decreased $0.7 million, or 10%, to $6.0 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $6.7 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. The decrease is primarily due to lower expenses related to the timing of incurring post marketing commitment costs for KRYSTEXXA in the U.S., partially offset by approximately $0.3 million in severance charges for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $9.5 million, or 35%, to $17.8 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $27.3 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in expense is substantially due to lower marketing, promotion and compensation costs, resulting from our July 2012 reorganization plan, partially offset by approximately $4.9 million in severance charges and other reorganization expenses for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013. Interest expense on our debt increased $1.6 million, or 29%, to $7.2 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $5.6 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 as a result of additional interest due on our 2019 Notes, which were issued on May9, 2012. Interest expense for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013 reflects $2.7 million of coupon interest expense and $4.5 million of non-cash interest expense. Interest expense for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, reflects $2.6 million of coupon interest expense and $3.0 million of non-cash interest expense. Other income, net decreased $2.5 million, or 72%, to $1.0 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013, from $3.5 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. The decrease is primarily driven by the year-over-year variance related to the change in the mark-to-market valuation adjustment of our warrant liability. ABOUTSAVIENT PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.
