Vertex Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results And Provides Updates On Progress In Research And Development Programs In Hepatitis C And Cystic Fibrosis

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Nasdaq: VRTX) today reported consolidated financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Vertex reported total revenues of approximately $418 million for the second quarter of 2012, including net product revenues of approximately $328 million from INCIVEK ® (telaprevir) and approximately $46 million from KALYDECO TM (ivacaftor). Royalty revenues related to the sale of INCIVO ® in Europe by our collaborator were approximately $28 million for the second quarter of 2012. In the second quarter of 2012, the company reported GAAP net loss of approximately $(65) million, or $(0.31) per share, and non-GAAP net income of approximately $100 million, or $0.46 per share. The non-GAAP income excludes charges related to Vertex stock-based compensation expense, charges related to an increase in the fair value of expected future payments under our Alios collaboration and a reserve against the potential for excess INCIVEK inventory. Vertex also updated financial guidance for full-year 2012 INCIVEK net revenues. The company expects full-year 2012 INCIVEK net revenues to be in the range of $1.1 billion to $1.25 billion. Additionally, Vertex today provided updates on a number of ongoing and planned trials in cystic fibrosis, hepatitis C, rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases. In a separate press release issued today, Vertex announced positive viral kinetic data for ALS-2200, a nucleotide analogue in development for the treatment of hepatitis C, which was well-tolerated and showed a median 4.54 log 10 reduction in hepatitis C virus RNA after seven days of dosing with 200 mg of ALS-2200 once daily.

“During the first half of the year, Vertex delivered several important advancements across our broad pipeline. In cystic fibrosis, we obtained U.S. and E.U. approval of KALYDECO earlier than anticipated, and we announced promising data for a combination of VX-809 and KALYDECO that accelerated our plans to begin a pivotal program early next year in people with the most common type of cystic fibrosis. We also announced today the first results for our nucleotide analogue ALS-2200, which enhance our portfolio of potential hepatitis C medicines and provide flexibility in the future development of multiple all-oral treatments for this disease,” said Jeffrey Leiden, M.D., Ph.D., Chair, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vertex.
