Net Product Revenues Marketed by BioMarin is the sum of revenues from Vimizim, Kuvan, Naglazyme, Palynziq, Brineura and Firdapse, each calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (U.S. GAAP). Sanofi Genzyme (Genzyme) is BioMarin's sole customer for Aldurazyme and is responsible for marketing and selling Aldurazyme to third parties. Refer to page 8 for a table showing Net Product Revenues by product, including Firdapse. In January 2020, BioMarin divested the Firdapse assets to a third party in a sale transaction. The sale is reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2020; as a result of the transaction BioMarin will not recognize Net Product Revenues from Firdapse in the future.

(2)

Non-GAAP Income is defined by the Company as reported GAAP Net Income, excluding net interest expense, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, contingent consideration expense and, in certain periods, certain other specified items. Refer to Non-GAAP Information beginning on page 9 of this press release for a complete discussion of the Company's Non-GAAP financial information and reconciliations to the comparable information reported under U.S. GAAP.

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRN) (BioMarin or the Company) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Net Product Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 increased to $460.7 million, compared to $450.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in Net Product Revenues was primarily attributed to the following:

  • Palynziq Net Product Revenues increased by $22.0 million driven by a combination of revenue from U.S. patients achieving maintenance dosing and new patients initiating therapy;
  • Aldurazyme Net Product Revenues increased by $18.1 million due to higher sales volume to Genzyme;
  • Naglazyme and Vimizim Net Product Revenues decreased by an aggregate of $33.7 million primarily due to timing of orders placed from Latin America as well as the impact of missed infusions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The increase in GAAP Net Income for the third quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019 was primarily due to the following:

  • an increase in the benefit from income taxes of $800.8 million primarily due the completion of an intra-entity transfer of certain intellectual property (IP) rights to an Irish subsidiary where the Company's Ex-US regional headquarters are located and has significant manufacturing and commercial operations, to better align ownership of IP rights with how the business operates resulting in a tax benefit of $835.1 million based on the fair value of the transferred IP rights; and
  • decreased research and development (R&D) expense primarily resulting from decreased clinical manufacturing costs for BMN 307 and lower clinical activity spend for valoctocogene roxaparvovec gene therapy programs; partially offset by
  • an increase in Cost of Sales of $91.8 million primarily attributed to the $81.2 million reserve of valoctocogene roxaparvovec pre-launch inventory due to delays in anticipated regulatory approvals; and
  • higher selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense related to pre-commercialization activities for valoctocogene roxaparvovec.

Non-GAAP Income for the third quarter of 2020 increased to $98.7 million, compared to Non-GAAP Income of $78.1 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in Non-GAAP Income for the quarter, compared to the same period in 2019, was attributed to decreased R&D expense and higher gross profit, excluding the $81.2 million pre-launch inventory charge, partially offset by higher SG&A expense.

As of September 30, 2020, BioMarin had cash, cash equivalents and investments totaling approximately $1.8 billion, which includes net proceeds of $535.8 million from the Company's May 2020 convertible debt offering, as compared to $1.2 billion on December 31, 2019. On October 15, 2020, the Company's 1.50% senior subordinate convertible notes matured and were settled in cash for approximately $375.0 million.

Commenting on third quarter 2020 results, Jean-Jacques Bienaimé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BioMarin, said, "While the impact of COVID-19 continued through the third quarter, BioMarin employees remained focused on our mission to serve patients and ensure the steady supply of our critically-important medicines. In these continued unpredictable times, the essential nature of our products to the people who rely on them remains constant."

Mr. Bienaimé continued, "In the third quarter we received unexpected news on the status of our application with valoctocogene roxaparvovec for hemophilia A from health authorities, which resulted in a delay in potential approval timelines. However, we remain confident in our valoctocogene roxaparvovec gene therapy and its potential to redefine the treatment paradigm for people with hemophilia A. We continue to work with the health authorities to align on next steps toward approval. Our 134-subject Phase 3 study with valoctocogene roxaparvovec will complete one-year of observation in all subjects later this month, and we anticipate sharing top-line results comprising 1 to 2 years of follow-up from that study, in the first quarter of 2021. We also plan to submit the complete one-year Phase 3 data to the EMA in the second quarter of 2021."

"Vosoritide for the treatment of achondroplasia is advancing as planned with applications under review in both the U.S. and Europe with potential regulatory approvals anticipated in 2021. The significant unmet medical need for children with achondroplasia has enabled BioMarin to build a multi-pronged dossier of clinical studies. It includes the highly statistically significant placebo-controlled Phase 3 results, long-term clinical results in 5 to 18 year-olds from our Phase 2 study, natural history data, and the ongoing study of newborns through 5 years, which is nearing enrollment completion. The positive results from our vosoritide clinical programs bolster our confidence in the potential for this drug to be the first pharmacological treatment to address the underlying cause of achondroplasia. Interest in our clinical studies with vosoritide has been extremely robust, demonstrating that many families are keen to seek early treatment for their children."

Mr. Bienaimé concluded, "Despite the impact from COVID-19 and the timing set-back on the potential approval of valoctocogene roxaparvovec, we remain confident in our business. BioMarin fundamentals are strong, driven by our global base business of essential medicines and cash position, but our people and pursuit and development of innovative therapies will always be our most important assets."

(1)

Revenue guidance reflects BioMarin's projected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its global revenue sources, mostly in the form of demand interruptions such as missed patient infusions and delayed treatment starts for new patients. Total Revenue guidance also reflects the impact of the valoctocogene roxaparvovec FDA Complete Response Letter whereby the Company no longer expects any revenue from valoctocogene roxaparvovec in 2020 and the previously anticipated October 2020 loss of market exclusivity for Kuvan in the U.S. Management also notes that the impact of COVID-19 on revenues is expected to persist into 2021 due primarily to the effect of delays in new patients initiating therapy.

(2)

Revised Cost of Sales guidance for 2020 reflects the incremental charge of $81.2 million during the third quarter of 2020 related to valoctocogene roxaparvovec pre-launch inventory reserves.

(3)

All Financial Guidance items are calculated based on U.S. GAAP with the exception of Non-GAAP Income/Loss. Refer to Non-GAAP Information beginning on page 9 of this press release for a complete discussion of the Company's Non-GAAP financial information and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP reported information.

Key Program Highlights

  • Valoctocogene roxaparvovec gene therapy for severe hemophilia A: BioMarin is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to align on steps forward to obtain marketing approval following the August 18, 2020 Complete Response Letter to the Company's Biologics License Application for valoctocogene roxaparvovec gene therapy for severe hemophilia A. The FDA recommended that the Company complete the Phase 3 study and submit two-year follow-up safety and efficacy data on all study participants. The Phase 3 study was fully enrolled in November 2019 and will complete one-year of follow-up of all patients in November 2020. The Company intends to share the one-year top-line Phase 3 data in the first quarter of 2021.

    Additionally, the EMA recently requested the 52-week results from the full Phase 3 study cohort of 134 subjects to inform their benefit-risk assessment. To facilitate this submission within the EMA regulatory framework, BioMarin recently withdrew the MAA and plans to resubmit the MAA with these data to the EMA in the second quarter of 2021.

  • Vosoritide for children with achondroplasia: Marketing applications for vosoritide were recently validated and accepted, by EMA and FDA, respectively. The CHMP opinion is expected in Europe in the second half of 2021. The U.S. New Drug Application for vosoritide is under Standard review by the FDA with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act target action date of August 20, 2021. Vosoritide is an investigational, once daily injection of an analog of C-type Natriuretic Peptide. If approved, vosoritide would be the only therapeutic treatment available for children with achondroplasia.

  • Palynziq for Phenylketonuria (PKU): On October 7, 2020 the Company announced that the FDA approved the supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) to increase the maximum allowable dose of Palynziq (pegvaliase-pqpz) Injection for treatment of adults with Phenylketonuria (PKU) to 60 mg daily. Previously, the maximum dose was 40 mg daily. In the Phase 3 PRISM studies, 19% of study participants required a 60 mg dose to achieve adequate response to Palynziq.

    Palynziq is indicated to reduce blood Phe concentrations in adults with phenylketonuria (PKU), who have uncontrolled blood Phe concentrations greater than 600 μmol/L on existing management. Palynziq, a PEGylated recombinant phenylalanine ammonia lyase enzyme, is the first and only approved enzyme substitution therapy to target the underlying cause of PKU by helping the body to break down Phe.

  • BMN 307 gene therapy product candidate for phenylketonuria (PKU): On September 24, 2020, the Company announced that it began dosing participants in PHEARLESS, the Phase 1/2 study of BMN 307. Both the FDA and EMA granted BMN 307 Orphan Drug Status. Additionally, the FDA has granted Fast Track status to BMN 307. Product for use in the Phase 1/2 study was made at commercial scale from BioMarin's award-winning gene therapy manufacturing facility.

  • BMN 331 gene therapy product candidate for Hereditary Angioedema (HAE): IND-enabling studies are ongoing with BMN 331, BioMarin's third gene therapy candidate, for the treatment of Hereditary Angioedema (HAE). BioMarin plans to leverage its broad expertise in developing gene therapies for severe hemophilia A and PKU to improve efficiencies in the development process of BMN 331.

  • DiNA-001 for MYBPC3 hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM): Pre-clinical studies are underway with DiNA-001 following a collaboration announced in May 2020 with DiNAQOR, a gene therapy platform company, to develop novel gene therapies to treat rare genetic cardiomyopathies. DiNAQOR received an undisclosed upfront payment and is eligible to receive development, regulatory and commercial milestones on product sales in addition to tiered royalties on worldwide sales.

 In January 2020, BioMarin divested the Firdapse assets to a third party in a sale transaction. The sale is reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2020; and as a result of the transaction BioMarin will not recognize Net Product Revenues from Firdapse in the future.

Non-GAAP Information

The results presented in this press release include both GAAP information and Non-GAAP information. As used in this release, Non-GAAP Income is defined by the Company as GAAP Net Income/Loss excluding net interest expense, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, contingent consideration expense and, in certain periods, certain other specified items, as detailed below when applicable. In addition, BioMarin includes in this press release the effects of these adjustments on certain components of GAAP Net Income/Loss for each of the periods presented. In this regard, Non-GAAP Income and its components, including Non-GAAP Cost of Sales, Non-GAAP Research and Development expenses, Non-GAAP Selling, General and Administrative expense, Non-GAAP Intangible Asset Amortization and Contingent Consideration, Non-GAAP Gain on the Sale of Intangible Asset and Non-GAAP Benefit From Income Taxes are statement of operations line items prepared on the same basis as, and therefore components of, the overall Non-GAAP measures.

BioMarin regularly uses both GAAP and Non-GAAP results and expectations internally to assess its financial operating performance and evaluate key business decisions related to its principal business activities: the discovery, development, manufacture, marketing and sale of innovative biologic therapies. Because Non-GAAP Income and its components are important internal measurements for BioMarin, the Company believes that providing this information in conjunction with BioMarin's GAAP information enhances investors' and analysts' ability to meaningfully compare the Company's results from period to period and to its forward-looking guidance, and to identify operating trends in the Company's principal business. BioMarin also uses Non-GAAP Income internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and to make operating decisions, and compensation of executives is based in part on this measure.

Non-GAAP Income and its components are not meant to be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors should note that the Non-GAAP information is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors should also note that these Non-GAAP measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and, therefore, have limits in their usefulness to investors. In addition, from time to time in the future there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its Non-GAAP measures; likewise, the Company may in the future cease to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its Non-GAAP measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions, the Non-GAAP measure as used by BioMarin in this press release and the accompanying tables may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
