The company expects to achieve the following in 2013:
- Total revenues of between $73 million and $77 million, including:
- Feraheme U.S. net product revenues of between $63 million and $67 million, driven by a combination of price and double-digit volume growth;
- Royalties and product sales related to ex-U.S. sales of Feraheme/Rienso and recognition of milestones of approximately $10 million;
- Cost of goods sold (COGS) of between 14% and 18% of net product sales;
- Total operating expenses, excluding COGS, of between $78 million and $82 million, representing an approximate 10% reduction from 2012. The reduced operating expenses in 2013 will be driven by decreased clinical trial costs, offset in part by new investments in a lower-cost production process and pre-launch investments to support a potential expansion to Feraheme’s label. The company expects:
- Research and development expenses of between $24 million and $27 million, representing an approximate 27% reduction from 2012;
- Selling, general and administrative expenses of between $54 million and $57 million, representing an approximate 2% increase from 2012; and
- A 2013 year-end cash and investments balance of between $206 million and $211 million, not including the impact of business development transactions.
