Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2018 and provided a business update.

"Regeneron made important commercial progress in the second quarter with continued strong U.S. sales growth for EYLEA in retinal diseases and Dupixent in atopic dermatitis. We are particularly pleased by U.S. launch progress with Dupixent for adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, driven by a positive experience in the marketplace by patients and physicians in this serious disease; we anticipate continued robust growth as more physicians increase their experience with the product," said Leonard S. Schleifer, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Regeneron. "In the second half of the year, we anticipate two significant U.S. regulatory approvals: cemiplimab for advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and Dupixent for uncontrolled asthma. We also plan to submit regulatory applications for Dupixent in adolescent atopic dermatitis and to report Phase 3 results in nasal polyps, in addition to other advances across our innovative portfolio for serious diseases."

Second Quarter 2018 Business Highlights

Key Pipeline Progress
Regeneron has nineteen product candidates in clinical development, which consist of EYLEA and fully human antibodies generated using the Company's VelocImmune® technology, including eight in collaboration with Sanofi. Updates from the clinical pipeline include:

EYLEA® (aflibercept) Injection

  • The Company recently submitted a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for EYLEA for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
  • In the second quarter of 2018, the Company submitted an sBLA for EYLEA in a pre-filled syringe.

Dupixent® (dupilumab) Injection

  • Dupixent, an antibody that blocks signaling of IL-4 and IL-13, is being studied in asthma, adolescent and pediatric atopic dermatitis, nasal polyps, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), and grass immunotherapy, with additional studies planned in 2018.
  • In May 2018, the Company and Sanofi reported that a Phase 3 trial evaluating Dupixent to treat moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in adolescents (12-17 years of age) met its primary and key secondary endpoints.
  • In May 2018, the Company and Sanofi announced that the New England Journal of Medicine published detailed, positive results from two Phase 3 trials of Dupixent in moderate-to-severe asthma.
  • In the second quarter of 2018, a Phase 2 study of Dupixent in grass immunotherapy was initiated.

Praluent® (alirocumab) Injection

  • In May 2018, the Company and Sanofi announced they will lower the net price of Praluent in exchange for straightforward, more affordable patient access from Express Scripts. Praluent has been chosen as the exclusive PCSK9 inhibitor therapy on the Express Scripts national formulary. The agreement took effect on July 1, 2018.
  • An sBLA and a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for Praluent for cardiovascular risk reduction have been recently submitted.
  • An sBLA for first-line treatment of hyperlipidemia has also been recently submitted.
  • In the second quarter of 2018, a Phase 3 pediatric study in heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) was initiated.

Cemiplimab, an antibody to PD-1, is being studied in patients with cancer.

  • In April 2018, the FDA accepted for priority review the BLA for cemiplimab for the treatment of patients with metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) or patients with locally advanced CSCC who are not candidates for surgery. The target action date for the FDA decision is October 28, 2018.
  • In April 2018, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) also accepted for review the MAA for cemiplimab in patients with metastatic CSCC or patients with locally advanced CSCC who are not candidates for surgery.
  • In June 2018, the Company and Sanofi announced that pivotal data from two trials evaluating cemiplimab in advanced CSCC were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
  • In May 2018, the Company and Sanofi announced positive interim results from a Phase 1 study assessing cemiplimab as a potential treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Fasinumab, an antibody targeting Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), is being studied in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip.

  • In April 2018, an independent Data Monitoring Committee monitoring the ongoing safety and efficacy of the fasinumab clinical trials recommended that the higher dose-regimens be discontinued based on the risk benefit assessment and that the program may continue with the lower dose-regimens of fasinumab; the ongoing osteoarthritis trials have been modified accordingly. Since the Phase 3 clinical study in chronic low back pain in patients with concomitant osteoarthritis was only using higher doses, the Company is no longer actively dosing patients in this study.

Evinacumab is an antibody to ANGPTL3. In the second quarter of 2018, a Phase 3 study in severe hypertriglyceridemia was initiated.

REGN3500 is an antibody to IL-33. In the third quarter of 2018, a Phase 2 study in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was initiated.

REGN3918 (pozelimab) is an antibody to C5. The Company expects to report full data from its Phase 1 study in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) in the second half of 2018, and plans to initiate a Phase 2 study in PNH in early 2019.

REGN4018 is a bi-specific antibody targeting MUC16 and CD3. In the second quarter of 2018, a Phase 1 study in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer was initiated.

REGN4659 is an antibody against CTLA4. In the second quarter of 2018, a Phase 1 study in advanced NSCLC was initiated.

Financial Results

Product Revenues: Net product sales were $996 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $924 million in the second quarter of 2017. EYLEA net product sales in the United States were $992 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $919 million in the second quarter of 2017. Overall distributor inventory levels remained within the Company's one- to two-week targeted range.

Total Revenues: Total revenues, which include product revenues described above, increased by 9% to $1.608 billion in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $1.470 billion in the second quarter of 2017. Total revenues include Sanofi and Bayer collaboration revenues of $501 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $432 million in the second quarter of 2017. Sanofi collaboration revenue in the second quarter of 2018 increased primarily due to the Company's share of higher net sales of Dupixent and an increase in reimbursable expenses in connection with late-stage clinical development activities for cemiplimab. These increases were partly offset by the Company's Discovery and Preclinical Development Agreement with Sanofi ending on December 31, 2017, lower reimbursement for Dupixent development activities, and an increase in the Company's share of the collaboration's Dupixent commercialization expenses. Bayer collaboration revenue increased in the second quarter of 2018 primarily due to an increase in the Company's share of net profits in connection with higher sales of EYLEA outside the United States.

The Company adopted Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as of January 1, 2018. The Company adopted the standard using the modified retrospective method; prior period amounts have not been adjusted and the adoption of the new standard did not have a material impact on the Company's total revenues in the second quarter of 2018.

Refer to Table 4 for a summary of collaboration and other revenue.

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: GAAP R&D expenses were $529 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $510 million in the second quarter of 2017. The higher R&D expenses in the second quarter of 2018 were principally due to an increase in cemiplimab and fasinumab clinical trial costs and higher R&D headcount and facilities-related costs, partly offset by a decrease in Dupixent development expenses and the discontinuation of certain development programs. In the second quarter of 2018, R&D-related non-cash share-based compensation expense was $60 million, compared to $70 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Selling, General, and Administrative (SG&A) Expenses: GAAP SG&A expenses were $365 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $307 million in the second quarter of 2017. The higher SG&A expenses in the second quarter of 2018 were primarily due to higher headcount and headcount-related costs and an increase in commercialization-related expenses for EYLEA and Dupixent, and, to a lesser extent, for cemiplimab. In the second quarter of 2018, SG&A-related non-cash share-based compensation expense decreased to $40 million, compared to $45 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Income Tax Expense: In the second quarter of 2018, GAAP income tax expense was $105 million and the effective tax rate was 16.0%, compared to $138 million and 26.3% in the second quarter of 2017. The Company's effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2018 was significantly impacted by the bill known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "U.S. Tax Reform Act"), which reduced the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2018 was positively impacted, compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate, primarily by the tax benefit associated with stock-based compensation, income earned in foreign jurisdictions with tax rates lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate, the foreign-derived intangible income deduction, and the federal tax credit for research activities.

Other income (expense), net: GAAP other income in the second quarter of 2018 included the recognition of $17 million of net unrealized gains on equity securities. In the first quarter of 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, as of January 1, 2018, which requires the Company to measure equity investments at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income; previously, such changes in fair value were recognized in Other comprehensive income (loss). Refer to Table 3 for the non-GAAP adjustment related to gains and losses on investments in equity securities.

GAAP other expenses in the second quarter of 2017 included a $30 million loss on debt extinguishment related to the 2017 Tarrytown lease transaction.

GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income(2): GAAP net income was $551 million, or $5.12 per basic share and $4.82 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to GAAP net income of $388 million, or $3.66 per basic share and $3.34 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP net income was $624 million, or $5.79 per basic share and $5.45 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to non-GAAP net income of $487 million, or $4.59 per basic share and $4.17 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in Table 3 of this press release.

    (1)              Regeneron records net product sales of
                     EYLEA in the United States.  Outside
                     the United States, EYLEA net product
                     sales comprise sales by Bayer in
                     countries other than Japan and sales
                     by Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. in
                     Japan under a co-promotion agreement
                     with an affiliate of Bayer.  The
                     Company recognizes its share of the
                     profits (including a percentage on
                     sales in Japan) from EYLEA sales
                     outside the United States within
                     "Bayer collaboration revenue" in its
                     Statements of Operations.


    (2)              This press release uses non-GAAP net
                     income, non-GAAP net income per
                     share, non-GAAP unreimbursed R&D,
                     and non-GAAP SG&A, which are
                     financial measures that are not
                     calculated in accordance with U.S.
                     Generally Accepted Accounting
                     Principles ("GAAP").  These non-GAAP
                     financial measures are computed by
                     excluding certain non-cash and other
                     items from the related GAAP financial
                     measure.  Non-GAAP adjustments also
                     include the estimated income tax
                     effect of reconciling items.



                    The Company makes such adjustments for
                     items the Company does not view as
                     useful in evaluating its operating
                     performance.  For example,
                     adjustments may be made for items
                     that fluctuate from period to period
                     based on factors that are not within
                     the Company's control (such as the
                     Company's stock price on the dates
                     share-based grants are issued or
                     changes in the fair value of the
                     Company's equity investments) or
                     items that are not associated with
                     normal, recurring operations (such as
                     changes in applicable laws and
                     regulations).  Management uses these
                     non-GAAP measures for planning,
                     budgeting, forecasting, assessing
                     historical performance, and making
                     financial and operational decisions,
                     and also provides forecasts to
                     investors on this basis.
                     Additionally, such non-GAAP measures
                     provide investors with an enhanced
                     understanding of the financial
                     performance of the Company's core
                     business operations.  However, there
                     are limitations in the use of these
                     and other non-GAAP financial
                     measures as they exclude certain
                     expenses that are recurring in
                     nature.  Furthermore, the Company's
                     non-GAAP financial measures may not
                     be comparable with non-GAAP
                     information provided by other
                     companies.  Any non-GAAP financial
                     measure presented by Regeneron should
                     be considered supplemental to, and
                     not a substitute for, measures of
                     financial performance prepared in
                     accordance with GAAP.  A
                     reconciliation of the Company's
                     historical GAAP to non-GAAP results
                     is included in Table 3 of this press
                     release.


    (3)              The Company's 2018 financial guidance
                     does not assume the completion of any
                     significant business development
                     transactions not completed as of the
                     date of this press release.


    (4)              A reconciliation of full year 2018
                     non-GAAP to GAAP financial guidance
                     is included below:
