Conference call and webcast today at 4:30 p.m. ET

NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVNC), a biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, and provided a corporate update.

Third Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Updates

Revance Aesthetics

  • Company’s First Commercial Quarter – Successfully Launched Prestige Aesthetics Portfolio with the RHA® Collection of Dermal Fillers and HintMD Platform. In August, Revance announced that the company’s field force was established and would begin introducing its prestige Revance Aesthetics portfolio. In September, Revance began selling the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers and the HintMD financial technology (fintech) platform in select accounts in the U.S., with initial launch activities generating $3.0 million in revenues in the third quarter.
  • Due to COVID-Related Travel Restrictions, Required Inspection of the Revance Manufacturing Site by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has Not Been Scheduled. Today, Revance disclosed that, with 16 days left before its Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date of November 25, 2020, the FDA has not scheduled a manufacturing site inspection related to the company’s Biologics License Application (BLA) for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines. The FDA has indicated that an inspection of the Newark, Calif. manufacturing site will be required prior to approval. Revance continues to work proactively with the FDA to secure an inspection at the earliest possible time.
  • Announced Two Peer-Reviewed Publications Reporting Safety and Efficacy Results from the SAKURA 3 Open-Label Safety Study in Dermatologic Surgery. In August, Revance announced the publication of two separate peer-reviewed articles in Dermatologic Surgery, the official journal of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). The two peer-reviewed publications reported efficacy data as well as detailed safety results from the SAKURA 3 Phase 3 open-label, long-term safety study.
  • Presented Three New Abstracts Evaluating DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection and Two ePosters Evaluating the RHA® Collection During the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Virtual Annual Meeting. In October, Revance presented three new abstracts and two ePoster results at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Virtual Annual Meeting. Presented data showcased novel findings from the SAKURA Phase 3 program evaluating DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of moderate or severe glabellar (frown) lines, as well as a 4-week interim analysis from the Phase 2a open-label study for the treatment of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (LCL), commonly known as crow’s feet lines. The ePosters focused on the unique properties of the RHA® Collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers.

Revance Therapeutics

  • Announced Positive Results from ASPEN-1 Phase 3 Trial of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in Cervical Dystonia. In October, Revance announced positive topline results from its ASPEN-1 Phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group clinical trial for its investigational drug candidate DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of cervical dystonia, a chronic and debilitating neurologic condition affecting the muscles of the neck. This pivotal study, which enrolled a total of 301 subjects at 60 sites in the U.S., Canada and Europe, met the primary and secondary endpoints for both 125- and 250-Unit doses with high statistical significance. The 125-Unit dose delivered a median duration of 24 weeks. The drug was generally safe and well-tolerated at both doses, with an encouraging safety profile.
  • Reported Topline Results from Phase 2 Plantar Fasciitis Trial. Today, Revance reported results from its Phase 2 prospective, randomized, double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the safety and efficacy for two doses of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Although both doses demonstrated pain relief on the Numeric Pain Rating Scale that was numerically greater from the baseline than placebo, neither was statistically significant. As such, Revance will focus its efforts on indications for muscle movement and pain disorder indications where the use of neuromodulators is well-established.

“The third quarter of 2020 marked a significant milestone in the company’s history as Revance successfully transitioned to a fully integrated commercial enterprise. I am very pleased with the positive, early market feedback on our RHA® Collection of dermal fillers and HintMD fintech platform. We have assembled a portfolio of differentiated and unique assets for our aesthetics franchise and we believe we have the right commercial team and strategy for success,” said Mark Foley, President and CEO.

“During the quarter, we also announced positive Phase 3 results from our ASPEN-1 study in cervical dystonia, which lays the foundation for the creation of a strong therapeutics franchise. While we were disappointed with the results from our Phase 2 plantar fasciitis trial, this was an opportunistic indication where there are no FDA approved pharmacological treatments. We will now primarily focus our therapeutic efforts on established neuromodulator indications, including muscle movement disorders where our ASPEN-1 results are a source of confidence. As such, we look forward to announcing topline results from our JUNIPER Phase 2 upper limb spasticity trial in the first quarter of 2021.”

“Finally, today, we shared that the FDA has not yet scheduled a site inspection at our Newark, CA manufacturing facility as part of our BLA submission. We understand this is due to COVID-19-related travel restrictions at the Agency. While there is still time for an inspection to take place before our PDUFA date of November 25th, and though the company continues to work proactively with the Agency, we felt it was appropriate to provide an update. Importantly, should the anticipated approval of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in glabellar lines be delayed, we believe that Revance is in a strong position, both commercially and financially, to weather any near-term change in timing. Just as importantly, we remain confident in the strength of our BLA submission for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of glabellar lines.”

Financial Highlights

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2020 were $435.8 million.

Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $3.8 million compared to $46 thousand for the same period in 2019. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $4.2 million compared to $0.3 million for the same period in 2019. For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, product revenue was $2.8 million, service revenue from the HintMD platform was $0.2 million and collaboration revenue was $0.8 million.

Research and development expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $29.1 million and $96.0 million compared to $25.9 million and $75.4 million for the same periods in 2019, respectively. The increase in research and development expenses were primarily due to pre-commercial manufacturing, quality, the inclusion of HintMD for the first time, and inspection activities related to DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $48.2 million and $99.0 million compared to $16.7 million and $43.2 million for the same periods in 2019, respectively. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to increased costs related to selling and marketing expenses related to the launch the RHA® Collection and HintMD platform service offerings, pre-commercial activities for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection, HintMD transaction and integration costs, and personnel and infrastructure build-out.

Total operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $81.0 million and $199.4 million compared to $42.6 million and $118.6 million for the same periods in 2019, respectively. Stock-based compensation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $10.7 million and $24.6 million, respectively. When excluding costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development, total operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $65.4 million and $156.6 million, respectively.

Net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $81.3 million and $203.8 million compared to $41.4 million and $114.1 million for the same periods in 2019, respectively.

Near-Term Milestone Expectations

Aesthetics:

  • PDUFA date of November 25, 2020, for potential FDA approval of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines. However, this timing may be delayed as the FDA has not yet scheduled a site inspection at our Newark, CA manufacturing facility as part of our BLA submission.
  • Topline results from Phase 2 open-label, dose-escalation study of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in upper facial lines expected in December 2020.

Therapeutics:

  • Topline results from JUNIPER Phase 2 placebo-controlled, dose-ranging study of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in upper limb spasticity expected first quarter 2021.
  • Topline results from the companion ASPEN-OLS Phase 3 open-label, long-term safety trial, expected in 2021.

2020 Financial Outlook

Revance expects GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP) operating expense to be $285 to $295 million and non-GAAP operating expense, which excludes costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs, to be in the range of $220 to $230 million. With multiple clinical programs underway, along with regulatory and pre-commercial manufacturing activities, Revance anticipates 2020 non-GAAP, non-HintMD related research and development expense to be $95 to $100 million. With current cash and equivalents, management projects that the company is funded into 2023.

These risks and uncertainties relate, but are not limited to: the results, timing, costs, and completion of our research and development activities and regulatory approvals, including the potential delay in the anticipated PDUFA target action date for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of glabellar lines due to COVID-19-related policies and travel restrictions currently in place at the FDA; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our manufacturing operations, supply chain, end user demand for our products, commercialization efforts, business operations, clinical trials and other aspects of our business; our ability to manufacture supplies for our product candidates and to acquire supplies of the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers; the uncertain clinical development process, including the risk that the top-line results from the ASPEN-1 trial are based on our preliminary analysis of key efficacy and safety data, the fact that such data may change following a more comprehensive review of the data related to the clinical trial and such top-line data may not accurately reflect the complete results of the trial, and the FDA may not agree with our interpretation of such results; the risk that clinical trials may not have an effective design or generate positive results; the applicability of clinical study results to actual outcomes; our ability to obtain regulatory approval of our drug product candidates; whether the HintMD acquisition and Teoxane agreement will provide the anticipated economic and other benefits; the rate and degree of commercial acceptance and the market, size and growth potential of the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers, the HintMD payments platform and our drug product candidates, if approved; our ability to successfully commercialize the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers, the HintMD payments platform and our drug product candidates, if approved, and the timing and cost of commercialization activities; our ability to develop sales and marketing capabilities; the status of commercial collaborations; our ability to obtain funding for our operations; our ability to continue obtaining and maintaining intellectual property protection for our drug product candidates; and our financial performance, including future revenue, expenses and capital requirements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Revance has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. This release and the reconciliation tables included herein include total non-GAAP operating expense and non-GAAP R&D expense, both of which exclude costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs. Revance excludes costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs because management believes the exclusion of these items is helpful to investors to evaluate Revance's recurring operational performance. Revance management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and evaluate its operating results and trends on an on-going basis, and internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

Certain non-GAAP measures included in this report were not reconciled to the comparable GAAP financial measures because the GAAP measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis. The company is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP measures for these periods but would not impact the non-GAAP measures. Such items include costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the company’s GAAP financial results.
