WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Incyte Corporation (Nasdaq:INCY) today reports 2023 third quarter financial results, and provides a status update on the Company’s clinical development portfolio.

"Our double-digit revenue growth during the quarter was driven by sustained performance of Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) and an increasing contribution from Opzelura® (ruxolitinib) with continued strong patient demand and enhanced payer coverage," said Hervé Hoppenot, Chief Executive Officer, Incyte. "We made significant progress with our early programs in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), including mCALR and JAK2V617F, which have the potential to be disease modifying therapies that represent a fundamentally new approach to the way patients with MPNs are treated. Additionally, we recently received positive top line results from the Phase 2 study of povorcitinib in prurigo nodularis (PN) and plans are underway to initiate a Phase 3 study in 2024. With approximately 100,000 treated PN patients in the U.S., povorcitinib has the potential to be an efficacious therapy for those patients who currently have limited treatment options.”

Key Company Updates

  • In September, Incyte was notified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that ruxolitinib phosphate qualified for the Small Biotech Exception.
  • Beginning January 1, 2024, Opzelura will be listed as a Preferred Brand on the CVS Caremark and Aetna formularies impacting roughly 30 million commercial lives in the U.S.

Key Product Sales Performance

Jakafi:

Net product revenues for the quarter of $636 million:

  • Net product revenues grew 3% compared with the third quarter of 2022.
  • Channel inventory at the end of the third quarter of 2023 decreased by approximately $14 million versus the second quarter of 2023. Underlying demand in the third quarter of 2023 continued to grow both year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter.

Opzelura:

Net product revenues for the quarter of $92 million:

  • Net product revenues of $92 million grew 141% compared with the third quarter of 2022, driven by growth in patient demand, refills and expansion in payer coverage as the launch in AD and vitiligo continues.

Pipeline Updates

Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) and Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD) – key highlights

  • Combination trials of ruxolitinib twice daily (BID) with zilurgisertib (ALK2) and INCB57643 (BET) are ongoing and continue to enroll. Additional data from these studies are anticipated to be shared in the fourth quarter of 2023.
  • The Phase 1 study evaluating INCA033989 (mCALR) is ongoing and enrolling patients.
  • In October, we announced the development of a new program targeting the JAK2V617F mutation, which is present in 55-60% of myelofibrosis (MF) and essential thrombocythemia (ET) patients, and in 95% of polycythemia vera (PV) patients. INCB100658 is a small molecule inhibitor, targeting the JAK2V617F mutation and we expected to file the IND by year-end 2023.

Dermatology

Opzelura

  • New results of a pooled analysis of long-term extension (LTE) data from the pivotal Phase 3 TRuE-V program assessing Opzelura cream 1.5% in patients 12 years of age and older with nonsegmental vitiligo who previously experienced limited or no response to treatment at Week 24 were presented at the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress 2023 as a late-breaking oral presentation . These results showed patients who initially experienced limited or no facial or total body repigmentation at six months achieved improved repigmentation after continued treatment with Opzelura for up to two years.
  • Expanded results from the pivotal Phase 3 TRuE-AD3 study evaluating the safety and efficacy of ruxolitinib cream (Opzelura) in children (age ≥2 to <12 years) with atopic dermatitis (AD), the most common type of eczema, met its primary endpoint and was presented at EADV. Significantly more patients treated with ruxolitinib cream (0.75% and 1.5%) achieved Investigator’s Global Assessment Treatment Success than patients treated with vehicle control (non-medicated cream).
  • Ruxolitinib cream in other indications: three Phase 2 studies in lichen planus, lichen sclerosus and mild to moderate hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) have completed enrollment. Two Phase 3 trials evaluating ruxolitinib cream in prurigo nodularis (PN) are ongoing.

Povorcitinib (INCB54707)

  • Positive 52-week data from a Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of povorcitinib, an investigational oral JAK1 inhibitor, in adult patients with extensive nonsegmental vitiligo were presented at EADV as a late-breaking oral presentation. Results showed that treatment with oral povorcitinib was associated with substantial total body and facial repigmentation across all treatment groups at Week 52 and further reinforces the efficacy profile and potential of povorcitinib as an oral treatment for patients with extensive nonsegmental vitiligo.
  • The Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose ranging study evaluating the efficacy and safety of povorcitinib in participants with PN met its primary endpoint. A Phase 3 study in PN is being planned.
  • Asthma and chronic spontaneous urticaria: Two Phase 2 trials in asthma and chronic spontaneous urticaria are enrolling.

2023 Third Quarter Financial Results

The financial measures presented in this press release for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 have been prepared by the Company in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), unless otherwise identified as a Non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that Non-GAAP information is useful for investors, when considered in conjunction with Incyte’s GAAP disclosures. Management uses such information internally and externally for establishing budgets, operating goals and financial planning purposes. These metrics are also used to manage the Company’s business and monitor performance. The Company adjusts, where appropriate, for expenses in order to reflect the Company’s core operations. The Company believes these adjustments are useful to investors by providing an enhanced understanding of the financial performance of the Company’s core operations. The metrics have been adopted to align the Company with disclosures provided by industry peers.

Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used in conjunction with and to supplement Incyte’s operating results as reported under GAAP. Non-GAAP measures may be defined and calculated differently by other companies in our industry.

As changes in exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons, Management believes the presentation of certain revenue results on a constant currency basis in addition to reported results helps improve investors’ ability to understand its operating results and evaluate its performance in comparison to prior periods. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period over period. The Company calculates constant currency by calculating current year results using prior year foreign currency exchange rates and generally refers to such amounts calculated on a constant currency basis as excluding the impact of foreign exchange or being on a constant currency basis. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with GAAP. Results on a constant currency basis, as the Company presents them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measures of performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

1.Percentage change in constant currency is calculated using 2022 foreign exchange rates to recalculate 2023 results.

Product and Royalty Revenues Product revenues and product and royalty revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 increased 10% and 11%, respectively, over the prior year comparative period, primarily driven by increases in Jakafi and Opzelura net product revenues. The increase in Jakafi net product revenues was primarily driven by growth in patient demand and was partially offset by a decrease in inventory. Total Opzelura net product revenues for the quarter were $92 million, representing a 141% increase year-over-year driven by increased patient demand and expanded coverage. Jakavi royalties for the quarter were impacted by favorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates and Olumiant royalties for the quarter were impacted by unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates. In the third quarter of 2022, Olumiant royalties were impacted by a one-time deduction related to securing intellectual property rights.

2 Non-GAAP research and development expenses exclude the cost of stock-based compensation.

3 Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses exclude the cost of stock-based compensation and asset impairments.

4 Non-GAAP (gain) loss on change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration is null.

5 Growth rate in GAAP loss and (profit) sharing under collaboration agreements represents a decrease in loss position for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.

Cost of product revenues GAAP and Non-GAAP cost of product revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 increased 10% and 11%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2022 primarily due to growth in net product revenues.

Research and development expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP research and development expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 decreased 2% and 3%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2022 primarily due to a decrease in one-time collaboration related expenses partially offset by continued investment in our late stage development assets and timing of certain expenses.

Selling, general and administrative expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 increased 1% and decreased 2%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2022. The Non-GAAP decrease is driven by the $5.6 million asset impairment charge relating to assets written off under an agreement with Wilmington Friends School Inc. to purchase property.

Other Financial Information

Operating income GAAP and Non-GAAP operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2023 increased 55% and 63%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2022, driven by growth in product revenues.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities position As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $3.5 billion and $3.2 billion, respectively.
