SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Oct. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (Nasdaq:BMRN) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014. Non-GAAP net loss was $22.9 million, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2014, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $16.7 million for the third quarter of 2013. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, non-GAAP net loss was $13.5 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $24.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase in non-GAAP loss for the third quarter of 2014 compared to the prior year was primarily due to increased research and development expenses for talazoparib, BMN 190, BMN 270, BMN 250, BMN 701 and PEG PAL, as well as increased selling, general and administrative expenses related to VIMIZIM® launch activities. These increased expenses were partially offset by strong sales of VIMIZIM during its second full quarter of commercial sales. 

GAAP net income was $7.4 million, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2014, compared to GAAP net loss of $53.0 million, or $0.38 per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $64.2 million, or $0.44 per basic and diluted share, as compared to GAAP net loss of $114.4 million, or $0.84 per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Increased GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2014, compared to the prior year quarter, was primarily due to proceeds from the one-time sale of the Company's Rare Pediatric Disease Priority Review Voucher (PRV) of $67.5 million pre-tax, in addition to the operating factors which affected non-GAAP loss.

As of September 30, 2014, BioMarin had cash, cash equivalents and investments totaling $1,114.7 million, as compared to $1,052.4 million on December 31, 2013. 

"The commercial launch of VIMIZIM continues to make excellent progress. We are extremely pleased with the success of the U.S. launch and the progress we are making in the European Union seeking reimbursement for VIMIZIM on a country by country basis," said Jean-Jacques Bienaimé, Chief Executive Officer of BioMarin. "In addition, our more established commercial portfolio continues to grow, with both Naglazyme and Kuvan growing approximately 20% during the first three quarters of this year compared to last year. We believe that the continued growth of our five commercial products will help BioMarin reach over $1 billion in revenues over the next 2-3 years."

(1) Naglazyme revenues experience quarterly fluctuations due to the timing of government ordering patterns in certain countries. The Company does not believe these fluctuations reflect a change in underlying demand.
(2) BioMarin believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to investors, taken in conjunction with BioMarin's GAAP information because it provides additional information regarding the end-user demand for Aldurazyme. The Aldurazyme net product transfer revenue is the result of timing of deliveries to Genzyme Corp. and is therefore not representative of patient demand for the product. By providing information about both the GAAP and non-GAAP revenue measures, the Company believes that the additional information enhances investors' overall understanding of the Company's business and in particular allows for more consistent period to period evaluation of the revenue.
(3) To the extent units shipped to third party customers by Genzyme exceed BioMarin inventory transfers to Genzyme, BioMarin will record a decrease in net product revenue from the royalty payable to BioMarin for the amount of previously recognized product transfer revenue. If BioMarin inventory transfers exceed units shipped to third party customers by Genzyme, BioMarin will record incremental net product transfer revenue for the period.

Advanced Clinical Programs 

  • Phase 3 with PEG PAL for PKU: The Company expects top-line results from this study in 4Q15. Patients enrolling in the BMN 165-302 Phase 3 study will need to demonstrate a pre-specified reduction in blood Phe prior to entering the trial. The design includes: (1) an open-label study to evaluate safety and blood Phe levels in naïve patients; and, (2) a randomized controlled study of the open-label study patients who meet the pre-specified eligibility criteria to evaluate blood Phe levels and neurocognitive endpoints.
  • Phase 3 with talazoparib (BMN 673) for gBRCA breast cancer: The Company is enrolling patients in a Phase 3 trial to study talazoparib for the treatment of deleterious germline BRCA mutation metastatic breast cancer. The Phase 3 trial is an open-label, 2:1 randomized, parallel, two-arm study of talazoparib as compared to monotherapy of physicians' choice (capecitabine, eribulin, gemcitabine or vinorelbine) in germline BRCA mutation subjects with locally advanced and/or metastatic breast cancer who have received no more than two prior chemotherapy regimens for metastatic disease. The global study will enroll approximately 429 subjects. The primary objective of the study is to compare progression-free survival (PFS) of subjects treated with talazoparib as a monotherapy relative to those treated with protocol-specific physicians' choice. 
  • Phase 2/3 with BMN 701 for Pompe Disease: The Company is enrolling patients in the Phase 3 INSPIRE trial with BMN 701, GILT-tagged Recombinant Human GAA, for the treatment of Pompe disease. This single-arm Phase 2/3 trial is enrolling patients previously treated with alglucosidase alfa and switching them to a treatment of BMN 701 at 20 mg/kg administered every other week for 24 weeks. The primary endpoint of the study will be change from baseline in the respiratory parameter Maximal Inspiratory Pressure (MIP). 
  • Phase 2 with BMN 111 for Achondroplasia: The Company is enrolling patients in the Phase 2 trial with BMN 111, an analog of C-type Natriuretic Peptide (CNP), for the treatment of children with achondroplasia. Achondroplasia is the most common form of disproportionate short stature or dwarfism. The Phase 2 study is an open-label, sequential cohort, dose-escalation study of BMN 111 in children who are 5-14 years old. The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of daily subcutaneous doses of BMN 111 administered for 6 months. Prior to enrolling in the Phase 2 study, all patients will have participated in a 6 month natural history study to determine baseline growth velocity data.
  • BMN 190 for LINCL (Batten disease): The Company is enrolling patients in a Phase 1/2 trial with BMN 190, a recombinant human tripeptidyl peptidase 1 (rhTPP1), for the treatment of patients with late-infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 2 (NCL-2), a form of Batten disease. This is the first time that patients with Batten Disease have been treated with an enzyme replacement therapy in a clinical trial setting. The Phase 1/2 study is an open-label, dose-escalation study in patients with NCL-2. The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of BMN 190 and to evaluate effectiveness using an NCL-2-specific rating scale score in comparison with natural history data after 48 weeks of treatment. Secondary objectives are to evaluate the impact of treatment on brain atrophy in comparison with NCL-2 natural history after 48 weeks of treatment and to characterize pharmacokinetics and immunogenicity. The study will enroll approximately 22 subjects for a treatment duration of 48 weeks.

Preclinical Programs

  • BMN 270 for Hemophilia A: In January 2014, the Company announced that it had selected an AAV-factor VIII gene therapy drug candidate, BMN 270, to develop for the treatment of hemophilia A and has initiated IND-enabling studies. The Company intends to initiate a Phase 1/2 trial with BMN 270 in 1Q15.
  • BMN 250 for MPS IIIB: In February 2014, the Company announced that it had selected BMN 250, an intracerebroventricular enzyme replacement therapy, for the treatment of Mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB (MPS IIIB) or Sanfilippo Syndrome Type B (Sanfilippo B). BioMarin has initiated IND-enabling studies.  The Company intends to initiate a Phase 1/2 trial with BMN 250 in mid-2015.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) and Reconciliation

The results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013 and the guidance for 2014 include both GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net income/loss. As used in this release, non-GAAP net income/loss is based on GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash items such as, stock compensation expense and certain nonrecurring material items. 

The following table presents the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial metrics:
