BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009. GAAP net income was $6.6 million ($0.06 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2009, compared to GAAP net income of $0.8 million ($0.01 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP net income was $15.5 million ($0.13 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2009, compared to non-GAAP net income of $8.2 million ($0.08 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP net income excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, certain nonrecurring material items and the tax effect of the adjustments. The reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the estimated GAAP net income is detailed in the table provided at the end of the press release.

GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $5.2 million ($0.05 per diluted share), compared to GAAP net income of $6.3 million ($0.06 per diluted share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. Non-GAAP net income was $33.9 million ($0.33 per diluted share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to non-GAAP net income of $21.9 million ($0.21 per diluted share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.

As of September 30, 2009, BioMarin had cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments totaling $491.8 million.

"During the quarter, we continued to advance our clinical pipeline as we completed enrollment for the Phase I/II study of GALNS for MPS IVA and initiated the Phase II trial of PEG-PAL for PKU. On the commercial front, we were issued patents covering stable tablet formulation and the once daily dosing regimen for Kuvan, and received claims covering the approved administration of Kuvan with food. We believe that these patents are significant in extending protection beyond orphan drug market exclusivity," said Jean-Jacques Bienaime, Chief Executive Officer of BioMarin. "Based on our performance to date, we have narrowed the guidance range on a few items to reflect increased visibility into the year, including improved expectations for the bottom line. Our commercial products are performing well, and we continue to carefully manage expenses. We are also carefully evaluating both internal pipeline programs and external product opportunities to maximize long-term value for both the company and our shareholders. Also, as announced earlier this week, we acquired Huxley Pharmaceuticals, which is developing a proprietary form of 3,4-DAP for the rare autoimmune disease Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome. A positive opinion was issued by the EMEA last week, and we expect to launch this product in the EU in the first quarter of 2010. This low-risk deal leverages our EU commercial infrastructure, fits our orphan drug strategy with a specialist oriented and potentially high priced therapeutic and has the potential for near-term value creation."

Net Product Revenue

Net product revenue from Naglazyme (galsulfase), an enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI), was $42.1 million for the third quarter of 2009, an increase of 26.0 percent compared to Naglazyme net product revenue of $33.3 million for the third quarter of 2008. Net product revenue from Naglazyme for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $124.3 million, an increase of 29.2 percent from net product revenue of $96.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. Changes in foreign currency rates, net of hedges caused a negative impact to Naglazyme sales of $1.3 million and $5.0 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively.

Net sales of Aldurazyme (laronidase), an enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) recorded by Genzyme, were $40.3 million for the third quarter of 2009, an increase of 5.5 percent compared to net sales of Aldurazyme by Genzyme of $38.2 million for the third quarter of 2008. Net sales of Aldurazyme recorded by Genzyme for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 were $116.4 million, compared to $113.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. Changes in foreign currency rates caused a negative impact to Aldurazyme sales by Genzyme of $1.5 million and $8.7 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively. In the third quarter of 2009, Aldurazyme unit volume increased 11.6 percent compared to the third quarter of 2008 as the number of patients on therapy worldwide continues to grow.

Net product revenue to BioMarin related to Aldurazyme was $14.6 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared to net product revenue to BioMarin of $20.7 million for the third quarter of 2008. The timing of inventory transfers to Genzyme reduced net product revenue reported by BioMarin in the third quarter of 2009. During the third quarter of 2009, BioMarin transferred less inventory to Genzyme compared to units shipped to third party customers by Genzyme, which resulted in a reduction in BioMarin net product revenue from the royalty payable to BioMarin by Genzyme. During the third quarter of 2008, Genzyme's Aldurazyme inventory levels increased, which resulted in BioMarin recorded net product revenue that was higher than the royalty earned on Genzyme third party sales. Net product revenue to BioMarin related to Aldurazyme was $53.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $58.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.

Net product revenue from Kuvan (sapropterin dihydrochloride) Tablets, a product for the treatment of phenylketonuria (PKU), was $21.7 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared to $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2008. Net product revenue from Kuvan for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $54.1 million, compared to net revenue of $31.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. The quantity of commercial tablets dispensed to patients in the U.S., the best metric to track true patient demand, increased 8.5 percent in the third quarter of 2009 compared to the second quarter of 2009.

  Research and Development Programs

BioMarin continues to make significant investments in research and development to ensure continued growth of the company. The current pipeline includes programs which are in various stages of development and are focused on treating a range of unmet medical needs. BioMarin is making significant investments in manufacturing and laboratory facilities to support the advancement of these programs.

  --  GALNS for MPS IVA: BioMarin initiated the Phase I/II trial in
      mid-April 2009 and completed enrollment in mid-July.  The Phase I/II
      study is a 36-week, open-label, within-patient dose escalation trial
      followed by a treatment continuation phase.  The company expects to
      report initial results in the first half of 2010. Assuming positive
      results from the Phase I/II study, BioMarin expects to initiate a
      pivotal Phase III study in late 2010 or early 2011.
  --  PEG-PAL for PKU: BioMarin initiated the Phase II trial in September
      2009.  The Phase II clinical trial is an open-label, multi-center
      study to be conducted in up to 35 patients in a series of
      dose-escalating cohorts.  The primary treatment period of eight once
      weekly injections at a fixed dose will be followed by eight weeks of
      dose and frequency optimization and an extension period.  Results from
      the Phase II PEG-PAL trial are expected in mid-2010.
  --  BMN-195 - Utrophin upregulator for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy:
      BioMarin is in the final stages of preparing the regulatory filing and
      expects to initiate a Phase I trial by the first quarter of 2010. 
      BMN-195 is an orally available small molecule which may upregulate
      utrophin, a potential substitution for the missing dystrophin protein
      in DMD patients.
  --  Kuvan lifecycle development:  Several programs are underway to expand
      and protect the market and to improve the ability of healthcare
      providers and patients to better manage PKU.  These programs include a
      state-of-the-art handheld device to measure blood Phe levels in PKU
      patients. Human studies are planned for 2010.  Regulatory approval and
      commercial availability of the handheld blood Phe monitor is expected
      in the first half of 2011.
  --  BMN-185 - IgA protease for IgA nephropathy: BioMarin is completing
      early preclinical work and expects to move to the next phase of
      research in the first half of 2010.  IgA proteases have been shown to
      cleave IgA complexes, the deposition of which causes IgA nephropathy,
      an orphan kidney disorder with few treatment alternatives.
  --  Additional early development candidates:  BioMarin is working on
      multiple early development opportunities and expects to announce the
      next IND candidate in the first half of 2010.
  --  BMN-103 - a-glucosidase (GAA) for Pompe Disease: BMN-103 is a highly
      phosphorylated GAA enzyme, which the company believes could result in
      more efficient uptake in cells and potentially lead to improved
      glycogen reduction in key affected muscle groups not addressed with
      current therapy. BioMarin continues to explore partnering options for
      this program.

  --  6R-BH4 Cardiovascular:  BioMarin has decided to put the PAH
      opportunity for 6R-BH4 on hold, pending discussions with potential
      partners.  Although the early data suggest a potential for 6R-BH4 to
      be a safe and efficacious therapy for PAH, BioMarin decided that the
      additional investment in time and resources required to demonstrate
      this effect is better allocated to other early pipeline candidates.


  Non-GAAP Financial Information and Reconciliation

The above results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, full year results for 2008 and financial guidance for 2009 are presented both as determined in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis. As used in this release, non-GAAP income is calculated in accordance with GAAP, but excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, certain nonrecurring material items and the tax effect of the adjustments.

Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2009 and the third quarter of 2008 excluded (1) stock compensation expense of $8.9 million in the third quarter of 2009 and $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2008; (2) upfront license fees paid of $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2008; (3) Kuvan approval milestones received of $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2008 and (4) income tax effect of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP net income in the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and the nine months ended September 30, 2008 excluded (1) stock compensation expense of $25.7 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and $17.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2008; (2) upfront license fees paid of $8.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and $1.4 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2008; (3) impairment charges of $5.9 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2009; (4) Kuvan approval milestones received of $1.5 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2008; (5) initial Aldurazyme transfer revenue of $2.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2008; (6) net gain on the sale of equity investments of $1.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and (7) income tax effect of $0.3 million and $0.2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Anticipated non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2009 and actual results for the year ended December 31, 2008 exclude (1) stock compensation expense of $35.0 million anticipated for 2009 and $25.3 million for 2008; (2) upfront license fees of $8.8 million associated with the La Jolla Pharmaceutical Corporation transaction in 2009 and $1.4 million associated with the Summit transaction in 2008; (3) impairment charges of $5.9 million in 2009 and $4.1 million in 2008; (4) Kuvan approval milestones received of $31.5 million earned in 2008; (5) the gross margin of the initial Aldurazyme product transfer to Genzyme of $2.3 million associated with the restructuring of BioMarin/Genzyme LLC in the first quarter of 2008; (6) gain on the sale of equity investments of $1.6 million in 2009 and (7) income tax effect of $0.3 million and $2.2 million in 2009 and 2008, respectively. The reconciliation of these measures to the estimated GAAP net income is detailed in the table provided at the end of the press release.

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 performance of BioMarin's core ongoing business, Naglazyme, Kuvan and Aldurazyme and development of its pipeline. By providing information about both the overall GAAP financial performance and the non-GAAP measures that focus on continuing operations, the company believes that the additional information enhances investors' overall understanding of the company's business and prospects for the future. Further, the company uses both the GAAP and the non-GAAP results and expectations internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes.

Diluted Earnings Per Share Calculation

The calculation of GAAP diluted earnings per share for all of the 2009 periods presented and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the third quarter and first nine months of 2008 reflect the theoretical exclusion of the interest expense from net earnings that would no longer be incurred if the Company's convertible notes were converted into shares as their impact is considered anti-dilutive. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the third quarter and first nine months of 2009 include 16.0 million shares related to the Company's convertible notes due in April 2017. The March 2013 notes reflecting 10.4 million shares are excluded from the non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the 2009 periods presented as their impact is considered anti-dilutive.
