Jazz Pharmaceuticals Announces Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results and Updates Financial Guidance

  • 3Q23 total revenues of $972 million
  • Combined revenues from key growth drivers, Xywav®, Epidiolex® and Rylaze®, increased 24% year-over-year
  • Raising total and Oncology revenue guidance at the mid-points
  • Plan to initiate zanidatamab rolling biologics license application (BLA) submission this year for accelerated approval in second-line (2L) biliary tract cancers (BTC)

DUBLIN, Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc (Nasdaq: JAZZ) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2023 and provided business updates.

"We have once again delivered strong financial results from increasingly diversified revenue streams and remain well-positioned for long-term growth. Low-sodium Xywav grew 30% year-over-year despite additional competition, with continued compelling adoption across both narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia (IH). Epidiolex is well-positioned to deliver on its blockbuster potential as a differentiated treatment option with multiple ex-U.S. launches expected through 2024. Oncology net product sales grew 17% year-over-year and our Oncology therapeutic area remains on course to reach approximately $1 billion in annual revenue this year," said Bruce Cozadd, chairman and chief executive officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals. "We have raised our 2023 total revenue guidance yet again, as well as our Oncology revenue guidance, at the mid-points. We are increasing our investment in R&D based on our confidence in zanidatamab to raise the standard of care for patients and create long-term value for Jazz. Our disciplined capital deployment and strong execution has also enabled us to increase investment in our key commercial franchises, while delivering on our full year GAAP net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income guidance. We remain well-positioned to achieve Vision 2025."

"We now expect as many as five late-stage readouts from our robust R&D pipeline by the end of 2024 and continue to progress multiple early-stage programs in both neuroscience and oncology. We plan to initiate the zanidatamab rolling BLA submission this year for accelerated approval in 2L BTC and expect to complete it in the first half of 2024. Our pivotal, Phase 3 trial of Epidyolex® in Japan is progressing well and we now anticipate top-line data in the second half of 2024. Nearer term catalysts include the anticipated readout of JZP150 Phase 2 top-line data in PTSD and initial proof-of-concept from JZP441 in healthy volunteers. The breadth and depth of our expanded R&D pipeline continues to add to the diversification and transformation of our company together with the ability to improve patients' lives," said Rob Iannone, M.D., M.S.C.E., executive vice president, global head of research and development of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

Business Updates

Key Commercial Products

Xywav (calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium oxybates) oral solution:

  • Xywav net product sales increased 30% to $331.6 million in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022; expect Xywav to remain the oxybate of choice.
  • There were approximately 12,050 active Xywav patients exiting 3Q23.
  • The Company continued to present data supporting its scientific leadership in sleep disorders and highlighting the impact of low-sodium Xywav for patients with narcolepsy and IH.
    • At Psych Congress 2023, a review of multiple clinical trials demonstrated oxybate improves sleep quality, sleep architecture and measures of disrupted nighttime sleep in narcolepsy, independent of once- or twice-nightly dosing.
    • At World Sleep 2023, results from the TENOR study of adults with narcolepsy showed the most common patient-reported reasons for utilizing Xywav individualized dosing regimens were to avoid morning grogginess, help fall asleep and improve sleep quality. Results from another study, CV-RHYTHM, found patients with IH experienced a greater burden of cardiovascular comorbidities, including stroke, heart attacks and heart failure than those without IH, emphasizing the importance of holistic management to treat under-recognized sleep disorders.

Xywav for Narcolepsy:

  • Continued growth of Xywav in narcolepsy, despite additional competition, with approximately 9,500 narcolepsy patients taking Xywav exiting 3Q23.
  • The benefits of reducing sodium intake continue to resonate with patients and prescribers.

Xywav for Idiopathic Hypersomnia (IH):

  • There were approximately 2,550 IH patients taking Xywav exiting 3Q23.
  • Jazz survey of sleep specialists indicates 70% anticipate increasing their prescribing of Xywav for IH over the next six months, and new prescribers continued to grow in 3Q23.
  • Xywav remains the first and only FDA-approved treatment demonstrating improvement across multiple symptoms, including sleep inertia, which has a significant impact on patients' quality of life and daily function.

Xyrem® (sodium oxybate) oral solution:

  • Xyrem net product sales decreased 51% to $125.1 million in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, reflecting the continued adoption of Xywav by patients with narcolepsy and the launch of high-sodium oxybate AGs in 2023.

Oxybate (Xywav, Xyrem and AG Royalties):

  • Total oxybate revenue, including royalties from AGs, is annualizing at $1.9 billion.
  • Royalties from high-sodium oxybate AGs were $28.9 million in 3Q23, which reflect a significant increase over 1H23 and the fixed-rate royalty structures of the AG agreements in 2H23.

Epidiolex/Epidyolex (cannabidiol):

  • Epidiolex/Epidyolex net product sales increased 9% to $213.7 million in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
  • Epidiolex/Epidyolex global prescriber base increasing with multiple launches ongoing and anticipated outside of the U.S. through 2024, further positioning Epidiolex/Epidyolex to achieve blockbuster status.
  • Demand driven by compelling efficacy data from Epidiolex in combination with clobazam, increased penetration in adults and long-term care settings, and beyond seizure benefits from the BECOME caregiver survey in in Dravet syndrome (DS) and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).
  • Additional opportunity for growth coming from continued data generation, including potential beyond seizure benefits from the EpiCom study in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and multiple publications at AES 2023.
  • A pivotal, Phase 3 trial of Epidyolex in DS, LGS and TSC in Japan is enrolling patients and top-line data from the trial are expected in 2H24.

Rylaze/Enrylaze (asparaginase erwinia chrysanthemi (recombinant)-rywn):

  • Rylaze net product sales increased 43% to $104.9 million compared to the same period in 2022.
  • Continued strong Rylaze demand driven by multiple factors, including increased use in adolescents and young adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and additional switching of patients from E. coli-based asparaginase to Rylaze due to non-hypersensitivity treatment-related issues.
  • The European Commission granted marketing authorization for Enrylaze® (JZP458; a recombinant Erwinia asparaginase or crisantaspase), marketed as Rylaze in the U.S. and Canada, for use as a component of a multi-agent chemotherapeutic regimen for the treatment of ALL and lymphoblastic lymphoma in adult and pediatric patients (1 month and older) who developed hypersensitivity or silent inactivation to E. coli-derived asparaginase. The Company is planning to begin a rolling launch later this year.

Zepzelca® (lurbinectedin):

  • Zepzelca net product sales increased 11% to $78.0 million in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
  • The Company expects top-line data from the Phase 3 trial evaluating first-line (1L) use of Zepzelca to readout at the end of 2024 or early 2025.

  • The pivotal HERIZON-GEA-01 trial, evaluating zanidatamab in 1L gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma, is ongoing and top-line data are expected in 2024.
  • The Company, along with partners, presented zanidatamab data at ESMO Congress 2023. Results from a Phase 1b/2 study of zanidatamab plus chemotherapy in combination with tislelizumab for the 1L treatment of HER2-positive gastric/gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma demonstrated antitumor activity with a confirmed ORR of 75.8%, median duration of response of 22.8 months and median PFS of 16.7 months and safety was consistent with previous findings.

JZP150:

  • JZP150, a selective fatty acid amide hydrolase, or FAAH, inhibitor, is in clinical development for the potential treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Patient enrollment is now complete in the Phase 2 PTSD trial and top-line data are expected in January 2024.
  • The Company received Fast Track Designation for JZP150 development in PTSD from FDA, underscoring the significant unmet medical needs of patients.

Total revenues increased 3% in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.

  • Total neuroscience revenue, including high-sodium oxybate AG royalty revenue, was $704.0 million in 3Q23 compared to $711.4 million in 3Q22. Neuroscience net product sales in 3Q23 decreased 5% to $675.1 million compared to the same period in 2022 driven by decreased Xyrem revenues, reflecting the continued strong adoption of Xywav by patients with narcolepsy and availability of high-sodium oxybate AGs, offset by increased Xywav and Epidiolex/Epidyolex net product sales. High-sodium oxybate AG royalty revenue relates primarily to royalty revenue received from Hikma Pharmaceuticals plc on net sales of a high-sodium oxybate AG product.
  • Oncology net product sales in 3Q23 increased 17% to $260.4 million compared to the same period in 2022 primarily driven by the continued growth in Rylaze product sales, which increased 43% to $104.9 million.

Changes in operating expenses in 3Q23 over the prior year period are primarily due to the following:

  • Cost of product sales decreased in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a GAAP basis, primarily due to lower acquisition accounting inventory fair value step-up expense, partially offset by changes in product mix. Cost of product sales increased in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, primarily due to changes in product mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a GAAP basis, primarily due to restructuring and program termination costs incurred in 3Q22. SG&A expenses, on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, included decreased compensation-related expenses and increased investment in our priority programs.
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses increased in 3Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, primarily due to the inclusion of costs related to zanidatamab, as well as our other key pipeline programs.
  • The impairment charge in 3Q22, on a GAAP basis, related to an acquired IPR&D asset impairment relating to the discontinuation of our nabiximols program.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet
As of September 30, 2023, cash, cash equivalents and investments were $1.6 billion, and the outstanding principal balance of the Company's long-term debt was $5.8 billion. In addition, the Company had undrawn borrowing capacity under a revolving credit facility of $500 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company generated $924.7 million of cash from operations reflecting strong business performance and continued financial discipline.

Diluted EPS calculations for 2023 include an estimated 8 million shares related to the assumed conversion of the Exchangeable Senior Notes and the associated interest expense add-back to net income of $25 million and $22 million, on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, respectively, under the "if converted" method. In August 2023, we made the irrevocable election to net share settle our 2024 Notes. This election is expected to impact our full-year net income per diluted share guidance by $0.05 to $0.10 per share, on a GAAP basis, and $0.25 to $0.40 per share, on a Non-GAAP adjusted basis, as a result of an estimated decrease in the weighted-average shares outstanding of 1 million shares.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Jazz Pharmaceuticals' financial results and guidance presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses certain non-GAAP (also referred to as adjusted or non-GAAP adjusted) financial measures in this press release and the accompanying tables. In particular, the Company presents non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components, as well as certain non-GAAP adjusted financial measures derived therefrom, including non-GAAP adjusted gross margin percentage and non-GAAP adjusted effective tax rate. Non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components exclude from GAAP reported net income (loss) (and the related per share measure) and its line item components certain items, as detailed in the reconciliation tables that follow, and in the case of non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure), adjust for the income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. In this regard, the components of non-GAAP adjusted net income, including non-GAAP adjusted cost of product sales, SG&A expenses and R&D expenses, are income statement line items prepared on the same basis as, and therefore components of, the overall non-GAAP adjusted net income measure.

The Company believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors and analysts and that each of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the Company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, can enhance investors' and analysts' ability to meaningfully compare the Company's results from period to period, to its forward-looking guidance, and to identify operating trends in the Company's business. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are regularly used by investors and analysts to model and track the Company's financial performance. Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management also regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company's business and to make operating decisions, and compensation of executives is based in part on certain of these non-GAAP financial measures. Because these non-GAAP financial measures are important internal measurements for Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management, the Company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and analysts since these measures allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics the Company uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures; should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP; have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles in the reconciliation tables that follow. In addition, from time to time in the future there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; and the Company has ceased, and may in the future cease, to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, the Company may determine to modify the nature of its adjustments to arrive at its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measures as used by Jazz Pharmaceuticals in this press release and the accompanying tables have limits in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
