Vertex Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results And Provides Financial Outlook For 2014

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Nasdaq: VRTX) today reported consolidated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Vertex reported total third quarter 2013 revenues of $222 million, including net product revenues of $101 million from KALYDECO TM (ivacaftor) and $86 million from INCIVEK ® (telaprevir). The GAAP net loss attributable to Vertex was $(124.1) million, or $(0.54) per share, for the third quarter of 2013, including certain charges of $49.7 million, comprised primarily of stock-based compensation expense and restructuring charges. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Vertex for the third quarter of 2013 was $(74.4) million, or $(0.32) per diluted share. The company reported $1.42 billion in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2013. The company also today provided updated financial guidance for 2013.

Vertex also announced that it would focus its investment on future opportunities in cystic fibrosis (CF) and other research and early development programs, including VX-135 as part of all-oral regimens for hepatitis C. The company is reducing its workforce related to the support of INCIVEK following the continued and rapid decline in the number of people being treated with INCIVEK as other new medicines for hepatitis C near approval. These changes are expected to generate a reduction in 2014 non-GAAP operating expenses of approximately $150 million to $200 million compared to anticipated 2013 non-GAAP operating expenses of approximately $1.1 billion.

"Our business is at a unique point in its evolution. We have a tremendous opportunity ahead of us to further transform the treatment of cystic fibrosis, which continues to be the company's highest priority development program," commented Jeffrey Leiden, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vertex. "Following the continued decline in the number of people starting treatment with INCIVEK, we today took the difficult step to reduce our workforce supporting this medicine, enabling us to focus our investment on key programs in cystic fibrosis and other diseases to position the company for future growth."
