February 25, 2013

“2012 was another productive year marked by key partner regulatory filings in Europe, as well as our establishment of a new collaboration with Pfizer,” said Gregory I. Frost, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Halozyme. “These advancements, coupled with the continued progress of our own pipeline products, leave Halozyme well-positioned for continued growth in 2013.”

Fourth Quarter Highlights

Highlights of Halozyme’s fourth quarter and recent activities include:

  • Pfizer Collaboration: Entry into a worldwide Collaboration and License Agreement with Pfizer Inc. for the purpose of developing and commercializing products combining proprietary Pfizer biologics with Halozyme’s Enhanze(TM) Technology. Pfizer has elected three exclusive licenses to therapeutic targets in primary care and specialty care indications, and has the right to elect up to three additional targets upon payment of additional fees.
  • Cinryze(®) Phase 2 Trial: ViroPharma initiated a Phase 2b study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of subcutaneous (SC) administration of Cinryze (C1 esterase inhibitor [human]) in adolescents and adults with hereditary angioedema (HAE) for prevention of HAE attacks.
  • MabThera(®) EMA Filing: Roche submitted a line extension application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for a subcutaneous (SC) formulation of MabThera (rituxumab). MabThera SC uses Halozyme’s Enhanze Technology, which enables the injection of large volumes of a medication under the skin and may result in faster administration times versus intravenously (IV) administered MabThera.
  • MabThera Positive Trials: Announced positive results from Roche’s SABRINA and SparkThera studies, which showed that a fixed dose of MabThera can be administered subcutaneously, potentially allowing patients to spend less time in infusion centers receiving their MabThera treatment. Specifically, the studies showed that subcutaneous injection resulted in non-inferior MabThera concentrations in the blood compared with standard IV infusion.

Fourth Quarter and Year End 2012 Financial Results

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $4.4 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2011 of $18.4 million, or $0.18 per share. The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $53.6 million, or $0.48 per share, compared to a net loss of $19.8 million, or $0.19 per share for the comparable period in 2011.

  • Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $21.8 million, compared to $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 included license fees revenue from Pfizer of $9.5 million and a milestone payment from Roche of $4 million.
  • Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $18.6 million, compared with $14.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase was due primarily to an increase in manufacturing activities to support potential launches from our collaborators.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $7.0 million, compared to $5.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $99.9 million as of December 31, 2012, which includes net proceeds of $29.7 million from a term loan with Oxford Finance and Silicon Valley Bank for working capital and other near-term growth initiatives, compared with $52.8 million as of December 31, 2011. Excluding the proceeds from the term loan, net cash used in the fourth quarter of 2012 was approximately $17.4 million.

Financial guidance for 2013 was announced on January 7, 2013 and remains unchanged, with an expected net cash burn to be between $45 and $50 million.
