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.
