05/08/2012 | 08:05am US/Eastern

WASHINGTON, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Vanda) (NASDAQ: VNDA), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders, today announced financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Key Highlights:

    --  The tasimelteon Non-24-Hour Disorder (Non-24) program continues to
        advance towards the goal of a projected mid-2013 New Drug Application
        (NDA) filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Vanda
        expects to complete the two Phase III efficacy studies, SET and RESET,
        by the end of 2012.


    --  Initial clinical data in the RESET study revealed potential of
        tasimelteon to reset the body clock in Non-24.


    --  The tasimelteon MAGELLAN Phase IIb/III efficacy study for Major
        Depressive Disorder (MDD) is ongoing and Vanda expects to report
        top-line results in the first half of 2013.


    --  On April 16, 2012, Vanda announced that it had obtained exclusive
        world-wide rights from Eli Lilly and Company to develop and
        commercialize VLY-686, a small molecule neurokinin 1 receptor (NK-1R)
        antagonist for all human indications.  VLY-686 is a Phase II ready
        program.
    --  Vanda recorded first quarter 2012 revenue of $8.1 million including
        royalties of $1.5 million.  Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS,
        reached 35,000 for the first quarter of 2012.  This represents a 39%
        increase over first quarter 2011 prescriptions.

FIRST QUARTER 2012 REPORTED RESULTS

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2012 were $8.1 million, compared to $7.5 million for the same period in 2011. First quarter 2012 revenues included $1.5 million in Fanapt® royalties received from Novartis as compared to royalties of $0.9 million for the first quarter of 2011.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were $16.5 million, compared to $7.5 million for the first quarter of 2011. The primary driver of the higher expenses in the first quarter of 2012 was the ongoing support of the tasimelteon Non-24 and MDD clinical studies.

Vanda recorded a net loss of $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $0.1 million for the first quarter of 2011. Diluted net loss per share for the first quarter of 2012 was $0.28, compared to diluted net income of $0.00 per share for the first quarter of 2011.

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

On January 26, 2012, Vanda announced that initial clinical data in the RESET study revealed the potential of tasimelteon to reset the body clock in Non-24. The tasimelteon Non-24 program continues to advance towards the goal of a projected mid-2013 NDA filing with the FDA. Vanda is in continuing discussions with the FDA to confirm the path and requirements for this regulatory submission. Vanda expects to complete the two Phase III efficacy studies, SET and RESET, by the end of 2012.

The tasimelteon MAGELLAN efficacy study for MDD is ongoing and Vanda expects to report top-line results in the first half of 2013. This Phase IIb/III study in MDD is expected to enroll 500 patients across approximately 40 sites in the U.S.

On April 16, 2012, Vanda announced that it had obtained exclusive world-wide rights from Eli Lilly and Company to develop and commercialize VLY-686, a small molecule neurokinin 1 receptor (NK-1R) antagonist for all human indications. In 2012, Vanda intends to initiate and complete the technology transfer activities and further examine the clinical and commercial profile of VLY-686. This strategic evaluation will further inform potential indications for an early clinical development program. VLY-686 is a Phase II ready program.

First quarter 2012 sales of Fanapt® were reported by Novartis to be $15.4 million. Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, reached 35,000 for the first quarter of 2012. This represents a 39% increase over first quarter 2011 prescriptions.

The review of Vanda's Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for oral iloperidone tablets in the European Union is ongoing. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has provided its standard 120-day list of questions and has granted Vanda a 3-month extension, through mid-May 2012. Vanda expects to respond to the EMA questions by such time. Regulatory filings for market approval of Fanapt® by Vanda's commercial partners are under review in Israel, Mexico and Argentina.

2012 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

    --  General and administrative (G&A) expenses are expected to be between
        $13.0 and $15.0 million.  This compares to $11.5 million in 2011 and
        includes approximately $2.0 to $4.0 million in commercial expenses for
        pre-launch preparation for tasimelteon in the treatment of Non-24.  G&A
        expenses include approximately $3.0 million of stock based compensation
        (SBC).  Excluding SBC, G&A expenses are expected to be between $10.0 and
        $12.0 million.
    --  Research and development (R&D) expenses are expected to be between $42.0
        and $47.0 million.  This compares to $29.0 million in 2011.  The
        increase of $13 to $18 million over 2011 reflects our ongoing investment
        in the development of tasimelteon for Non-24 and MDD.  R&D expenses
        include approximately $2.5 million of SBC.  Excluding SBC, R&D expenses
        are expected to be between $39.5 and $44.5 million.
    --  Total GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $57.0 and $64.0
        million.  This includes Fanapt® cost of sales of $1.5 million related
        to amortization of an intangible asset and $5.0 to $6.0 million of SBC.
    --  Full year change in cash is expected to be between $45.0 and $50.0
        million.

The tables at the end of this press release include a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP expected G&A expenses and R&D expenses. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement the financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vanda uses measures of non-GAAP G&A and R&D expenses. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP financial measure, is presented in the financial table below.

Vanda believes that the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release can assist investors in understanding and assessing the ongoing economics of the company's business and reflect how it manages the business internally and sets operational goals. Vanda's "non-GAAP G&A expenses" and "non-GAAP R&D expenses" exclude stock based compensation. Vanda believes that excluding the impact of expensing stock options better reflects the recurring economic characteristics of its business and the company's use of financial resources. Non-GAAP G&A and Non-GAAP R&D, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies since not all companies may calculate these measures in an identical manner and, therefore, they are not necessarily an accurate measure of comparison between companies. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for guidance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in Vanda's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, Vanda presents its non-GAAP financial guidance in connection with its GAAP guidance. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
