SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Exelixis, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXEL) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2016 and provided an update on progress toward delivering upon its key 2016 corporate objectives, as well as commercial and clinical development milestones.

Exelixis is focused on the U.S. launch of CABOMETYX™ (cabozantinib) tablets as a treatment for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who have received prior anti-angiogenic therapy. CABOMETYX generated $31.2 million in net product revenue during the third quarter of 2016, which reflects the first full quarter of product sales. Net product revenues for the third quarter of 2016, including sales of COMETRIQ® (cabozantinib) capsules for the treatment of certain forms of thyroid cancer, were $42.7 million. While Exelixis focuses on commercialization in the United States, its partner Ipsen is in the process of launching CABOMETYX in the European Union, following the European Commission’s (EC) September 2016 approval of CABOMETYX for the treatment of adult patients with advanced RCC who have received prior vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-targeted therapy. Exelixis is eligible to receive royalties on CABOMETYX sales by Ipsen outside of the United States, Canada and Japan.
