ALAMEDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 12, 2019-- Exelixis, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXEL) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 and provided an update on progress toward fulfilling its key corporate objectives, as well as commercial and clinical development milestones.

The company reported total revenues of $228.6 million in the fourth quarter and $853.8 million for the full year 2018. Total revenues included cabozantinib net product revenues of $176.2 million for the fourth quarter and $619.3 million for the full year 2018. Total revenues for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 also included the recognition of $29.6 million and $164.4 million, respectively, of milestones from the company’s commercial collaboration partners, Ipsen Pharma SAS (Ipsen), Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. and Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (Daiichi Sankyo).

The company reported GAAP net income of $360.1 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter and $690.1 million, or $2.21 per diluted share, for the full year 2018. The company reported non-GAAP net income of $116.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter and $446.0 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, for full year 2018. Non-GAAP net income includes the current-period income tax provision of $0.4 million for the fourth quarter and $6.1 million for the full year 2018, but excludes the non-cash income tax benefit of $244.1 million recorded during the fourth quarter 2018 related to the release of substantially all of the valuation allowance associated with the company’s deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2018.

“Exelixis achieved strong financial performance in 2018, with solid growth in cabozantinib net product revenue, total revenue, and importantly, earnings per share and cash on hand,” said Michael M. Morrissey, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Exelixis. “With cabozantinib now a global and growing oncology franchise, we have the resources to match our commitment to expand the opportunity for the medicine with a new wave of pivotal trials, including COSMIC-311 and COSMIC-312, and numerous additional studies we anticipate will initiate in 2019. During the past year, we also started to build out our early-stage pipeline by signing in-licensing agreements with StemSynergy Therapeutics and Invenra, and advanced our in-house discovery activities, culminating with today’s announcement of the initiation of phase 1 clinical evaluation of XL092, the first Exelixis compound to emerge from our reinitiated drug discovery operations at our new Alameda headquarters.”

Dr. Morrissey continued: “This momentum has continued as we’ve headed into 2019. CABOMETYX received its latest FDA approval to treat patients with hepatocellular cancer who have received prior sorafenib, and our team is hard at work bringing this important new treatment option to patients. In addition, MINNEBRO, a Daiichi Sankyo product that was discovered through a collaboration with Exelixis, was approved in Japan to treat hypertension, providing us with yet another source of future milestone and royalty revenue. As Exelixis enters its twenty-fifth year, I’m proud to say we’ve moved through challenging times to come full circle: we are back to our research roots, paired now with our proven development and fully realized commercial engines. Our business — and commitment to improving the lives of patients with cancer — has never been stronger.”

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Financial Results

Total revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 were $228.6 million, compared to $120.1 million for the comparable period in 2017. Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $853.8 million, compared to $452.5 million for the comparable period in 2017.

Total revenues included net product revenues of $176.2 million and $619.3 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to $95.7 million and $349.0 million for the comparable periods in 2017. The increase in net product revenues reflected the continued growth of CABOMETYX® (cabozantinib) in the U.S. for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

Total revenues also include collaboration revenues of $52.4 million and $234.5 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to $24.4 million and $103.5 million for the comparable periods in 2017. Collaboration revenues for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 included the recognition of milestone related revenues of $29.6 million and $164.4 million, respectively, compared to $10.0 million and $57.5 million for the comparable periods in 2017. Collaboration revenues also included additional license, research and development, royalty, and product supply revenues that were recognized from the company’s collaboration agreements, totaling $22.8 million and $70.1 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to $14.4 million and $46.0 million for the comparable periods in 2017.

Research and development expenses for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 were $57.3 million and $182.3 million, respectively, compared to $32.2 million and $112.2 million for the comparable periods in 2017. The increase in research and development expenses was primarily related to increases in clinical trial costs and personnel expenses. The increase in clinical trial costs was primarily due to costs associated with: CheckMate 9ER, a phase 3 pivotal trial of cabozantinib plus nivolumab in patients with previously untreated RCC that is being conducted with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company; COSMIC-311, a phase 3 pivotal trial of cabozantinib in patients with radioiodine (RAI)-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) who have progressed after prior VEGFR-targeted therapy; COSMIC-021, a phase 1b dose escalation study that is evaluating the safety and tolerability of cabozantinib in combination with Roche’s atezolizumab in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors; COSMIC-312, a phase 3 pivotal trial evaluating cabozantinib in combination with atezolizumab versus sorafenib in previously untreated advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); and the preparation for further phase 3 pivotal trials that are expected to be initiated in the coming months. The increase in personnel expenses was primarily due to increases in headcount to support the company’s expanded development and discovery efforts.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 were $52.4 million and $206.4 million, respectively, compared to $46.3 million and $159.4 million for the comparable periods in 2017. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily related to increases in expenses for personnel, marketing and stock-based compensation. The increase in personnel expenses was primarily due to increases in general and administrative headcount to support the company’s commercial and research and development organizations. The increase in marketing expenses was primarily due to increases in marketing activities in support of the expanded RCC indication and the anticipated launch in HCC. The increase in stock-based compensation was primarily due to the increase in headcount.

Income tax benefit (provision) for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 was $243.7 million and $238.0 million, respectively, compared to $(0.4) million and $(4.4) million for the comparable periods in 2017. The change in income taxes was primarily related to the fourth quarter 2018 release of substantially all of the valuation allowance against the company’s deferred tax assets. The decision to release the valuation allowance was made after the company determined that it was more likely than not that these deferred tax assets would be realized. Due to the release of the valuation allowance in 2018, starting in 2019, the company will record income taxes on GAAP income using an estimated effective tax rate (see “2019 Financial Guidance” below).

GAAP net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was $360.1 million, or $1.20 per share, basic and $1.15 per share, diluted, compared to GAAP net income of $38.5 million, or $0.13 per share, basic and $0.12 per share, diluted, for the comparable period in 2017. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $690.1 million, or $2.32 per share, basic and $2.21 per share, diluted, compared to $154.2 million, or $0.52 per share, basic and $0.49 per share, diluted, for the comparable period in 2017. The increase in net income for the quarter is primarily related to the income tax benefit associated with the release of substantially all of the valuation allowance against the deferred tax assets described above in addition to increases in net product and collaboration revenues, offset by increases in research and development and selling, general and administrative expenses. In addition to the income tax benefit, the increase in net income for the full year 2018 was primarily the result of increases in net product and collaboration revenues, partially offset by increases in research and development and selling, general and administrative expenses.

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 was $116.0 million, or $0.39 per share, basic and $0.37 per share, diluted and $446.0 million or $1.50 per share, basic and $1.43 per share, diluted, respectively. Non-GAAP net income includes the current-period income tax provision of $0.4 million for the fourth quarter and $6.1 million for the full year 2018, but excludes the non-cash income tax benefit related to the release of substantially all of the valuation allowance against the company’s deferred tax assets described above.

Cash and cash equivalents, short- and long-term investments and short- and long-term restricted cash and investments totaled $851.6 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $457.2 million at December 31, 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because it excludes a non-cash tax benefit that resulted from the release of substantially all of the valuation allowance against the company’s deferred tax assets. Management believes that presentation of operating results that excludes this item provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the company’s core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is useful to investors in analyzing and assessing the company’s past and future operating performance.

The company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand the company’s business. Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP results are presented in the tables of this release.

2019 Financial Guidance

The company is providing the following financial guidance for 2019. Cost of goods sold are expected to be between 4 percent and 5 percent of net product revenues. Research and development (R&D) expenses are expected to be between $285 million and $315 million and includes non-cash expenses related to stock-based compensation of $20 million. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses are expected to be between $220 million and $240 million and includes non-cash expenses related to stock-based compensation of $35 million. Guidance for the effective tax rate in 2019 is between 21 percent and 23 percent.

Cabozantinib Highlights

Strong Growth in Cabozantinib Franchise Net Revenues. Net product revenues generated by the cabozantinib franchise were $176.2 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018, an increase of 84 percent year-over-year. During the fourth quarter of 2018, CABOMETYX generated $171.6 million in net product revenues and COMETRIQ® (cabozantinib) capsules for the treatment of patients with progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer generated an additional $4.6 million in net product revenues. Net product revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018 were $619.3 million, an increase of 77 percent year-over-year.

Initiation of COSMIC-311, a Phase 3 Pivotal Trial of Cabozantinib in Patients with RAI-refractory DTC. In October, Exelixis announced the initiation of COSMIC-311, a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 pivotal trial designed to enroll approximately 300 patients at approximately 150 sites globally. The co-primary endpoints of the trial are progression-free survival (PFS) and objective response rate. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 54,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2018.1 DTC accounts for approximately 90 percent of all thyroid cancers.2 Approximately 5 to 15 percent of differentiated thyroid tumors are resistant to RAI treatment.3

Cabozantinib Data at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 Congress. In October, data from clinical trials of cabozantinib were featured in 13 presentations at the ESMO 2018 Congress in Munich, Germany. Notable results included further analyses from the CELESTIAL phase 3 pivotal trial, as well as single-agent and combination data for cabozantinib in a variety of tumor types and disease settings. One poster presentation highlighted results from the dose-escalation stage of the phase 1b COSMIC-021 study of cabozantinib in combination with atezolizumab in previously-untreated advanced RCC, demonstrating that this therapy combination was well-tolerated and showed encouraging anti-tumor activity in advanced RCC. A second poster discussion detailed the effect of PD-L1 status on clinical outcomes with cabozantinib in advanced RCC in the CABOSUN and METEOR trials, showing improved outcomes regardless of PD-L1 expression relative to sunitinib or everolimus, the respective comparator arms for each trial. Another poster presentation evaluated the activity of cabozantinib in patients with advanced RCC who had progressed on immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) therapy, finding that cabozantinib was active in patients previously treated with ICIs, either alone or in combination with anti-VEGF or other therapies.

CABOMETYX as a Treatment for Advanced RCC Approved in Brazil and Taiwan. In October, Ipsen received approvals from both the Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária in Brazil for CABOMETYX as a treatment for both previously treated and previously untreated advanced RCC and from the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration for CABOMETYX as a treatment for patients with advanced RCC who have received prior anti-angiogenic therapy.

European Commission (EC) Approves CABOMETYX for the Treatment of HCC in Patients Previously Treated with Sorafenib. In November, Ipsen announced approval by the EC of CABOMETYX as a monotherapy for the treatment of HCC in adults who have previously been treated with sorafenib. This approval allows for the marketing of CABOMETYX in this indication in all 28 member states of the European Union (EU), Norway and Iceland. Under the terms of the collaboration agreement with Ipsen, Exelixis received a milestone payment of $40.0 million for this approval in January 2019. The EC approval is based on results from the CELESTIAL trial of CABOMETYX in patients with advanced HCC who received prior sorafenib. In this phase 3 pivotal trial, CABOMETYX demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in overall survival (OS) versus placebo.

Initiation of COSMIC-312, a Phase 3 Pivotal Trial of Cabozantinib in Combination with Atezolizumab versus Sorafenib in Patients with Previously Untreated Advanced HCC. In December, Exelixis and Ipsen announced the initiation of COSMIC-312, a multicenter, randomized, controlled phase 3 pivotal trial that is designed to enroll approximately 640 patients at up to 200 sites globally. The co-primary endpoints of the trial are PFS and OS. An exploratory arm will also evaluate cabozantinib monotherapy in this first-line setting. HCC is the most common form of liver cancer, making up about three-fourths of the estimated nearly 42,000 new cases in the U.S. in 2018 and is the fastest-rising cause of cancer-related death in the U.S.4,5

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Approval of CABOMETYX Tablets for Previously Treated HCC. In January 2019, Exelixis announced the FDA approval of CABOMETYX for the treatment of patients with HCC who have been previously treated with sorafenib. As with the EC’s approval in the EU, the FDA’s approval of CABOMETYX was based on results from the CELESTIAL phase 3 pivotal trial of CABOMETYX in patients with advanced HCC who received prior sorafenib.

Cabozantinib Data at the 2019 American Society for Clinical Oncology Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium (ASCO-GI). In January 2019, data from clinical trials of cabozantinib were featured in five presentations at ASCO-GI in San Francisco, including further analyses from the CELESTIAL phase 3 pivotal trial.

Corporate Highlights

MINNEBRO™ Receives Regulatory Approval for the Treatment of Hypertension in Japan. In January 2019, Exelixis’ partner Daiichi Sankyo announced that MINNEBRO (esaxerenone) tablets had received approval from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare as a treatment for patients with hypertension. MINNEBRO is a compound identified during the prior research collaboration between Exelixis and Daiichi Sankyo, which the companies entered into in March 2006, and has been subsequently developed by Daiichi Sankyo. Per the collaboration agreement, Exelixis will receive a $20.0 million milestone payment upon the first commercial sale of MINNEBRO in Japan. Exelixis is eligible for additional commercialization milestone payments, as well as low double-digit royalties on sales of MINNEBRO.

Exelixis Files Investigational New Drug Application (IND) and Is Initiating Phase 1 Development of XL092. Today Exelixis announced it has submitted an IND to the FDA for XL092, a next-generation small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting VEGF receptors, MET, and other kinases implicated in cancer’s growth and spread. Following FDA’s acceptance of the IND filing, the company plans to initiate a phase 1 dose escalation trial evaluating the pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of XL092 in patients with advanced solid tumors, with the primary objective of determining a dose for daily oral administration of XL092 suitable for further evaluation. Assuming positive data from the initial phase of the trial, the expansion phase is designed to further explore the selected dose of XL092 in individual tumor cohorts, where safety, tolerability, and initial clinical activity would be evaluated. XL092 is the first clinical candidate to emerge from Exelixis’ in-house laboratories since the company resumed its drug discovery activities.
