Seattle Genetics Reports Fourth Quarter And Year 2012 Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $47.7 million, compared to $40.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For 2012, total research and development expenses were $170.3 million, compared to $163.4 million in 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $23.4 million, compared to $25.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For 2012, total selling, general and administrative expenses were $84.3 million, compared to $72.7 million in 2011. The planned increases in 2012 expenses were primarily driven by ADCETRIS commercialization activities and research and development of the company’s ADC pipeline programs.

Under the ADCETRIS collaboration with Millennium, development costs incurred by Seattle Genetics are included in research and development expense. Joint development costs are co-funded by Millennium on a 50:50 basis. Net reimbursement funding received from Millennium is recognized as revenue over the development period of the collaboration along with other development payments received, including the upfront payment and milestone payments. Seattle Genetics co-funds development activities performed by Millennium under the collaboration, which reduces the amount of reimbursement funding received from Millennium.

Non-cash, share-based compensation expense for the year in 2012 was $25.3 million, compared to $20.0 million for the year in 2011.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $10.6 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to a net loss of $27.2 million, or $0.24 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, net loss was $53.8 million, or $0.46 per share, compared to a net loss of $152.0 million, or $1.34 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, Seattle Genetics had $364.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments, compared to $330.7 million as of December 31, 2011.

2013 Financial Outlook

Seattle Genetics anticipates that revenues from ADCETRIS net product sales will be in the range of $130 million to $140 million in 2013 and that revenues from collaboration and license agreements in 2013 will be in the range of $65 million to $75 million. These revenues will be generated from fees, milestones and reimbursements earned through the company’s ADCETRIS and ADC collaborations.
