Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Nasdaq: VRTX) today reported consolidated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Vertex reported total revenues of approximately $336 million for the third quarter of 2012, including net product revenues of approximately $254 million from INCIVEK ® (telaprevir) and approximately $49 million from KALYDECO TM (ivacaftor). Royalty revenues related to the sale of INCIVO ® in Europe by our collaborator were approximately $20 million for the third quarter of 2012, and the company reported $1.3 billion in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2012. In the third quarter of 2012, the company reported a GAAP net loss of approximately $(58) million, or $(0.27) per share, and non-GAAP net income of approximately $28 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. Vertex today also provided updates on a number of ongoing and planned trials in cystic fibrosis, hepatitis C, rheumatoid arthritis and influenza. In separate press releases issued earlier today, Vertex announced that it has entered into two non-exclusive agreements to conduct Phase 2 proof-of-concept studies of its nucleotide analogue hepatitis C virus (HCV) polymerase inhibitor VX-135 in combination with simeprevir (TMC435), a protease inhibitor being jointly developed by Janssen R&D Ireland and Medivir AB, and with GSK2336805, an NS5A inhibitor in development by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), for the treatment of hepatitis C.
“In the third quarter, we made significant progress across our broad pipeline of potential medicines,” said Jeffrey Leiden, M.D., Ph.D., Chair, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vertex. “In hepatitis C, we are advancing rapidly with our plans to evaluate multiple all-oral regimens of VX-135, both with medicines in our own pipeline and, as we announced earlier today, in collaboration with other companies. We are also advancing toward our goal to help more people with cystic fibrosis with the recent initiation of multiple label-expansion studies for ivacaftor and the planned start of pivotal development early next year for a combination of VX-809 and ivacaftor.
