AMAG Pharmaceuticals Provides Business Update Announces Preliminary 2012 Financial Results And 2013 Financial Guidance

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.

“AMAG is a different company than it was just 12 months ago – I believe that we are now in a stronger position, both commercially and financially. Feraheme is a on a solid growth trajectory and we are now ready to add additional commercial products to our portfolio to leverage these strengths,” concluded Heiden.
