LEIDEN, Netherlands, March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

Highlights:

Pharming Group N.V. ("Pharming" or "the Company") (Euronext Amsterdam: PHARM) presents its preliminary (unaudited) financial report for the full year ended 31 December 2019.

The Company will hold a conference call at 13.30 CET/07.30 EST today. Dial in details can be found on page 12 of this report.

Chief Executive Officer Sijmen de Vries said:

"As with 2017 and 2018, we continued to see consistent growth in the numbers of patients benefiting from RUCONEST® in 2019. As a result of the increase in sales from this growing patient base, we have been able to implement ambitious development plans.  These include new expanded indications for RUCONEST® as well as enriching our pipeline and leveraging our commercial infrastructure with our first in-license of a late-stage product: leniolisib, for the treatment of APDS, a rare and severe form of primary immune deficiency. The net profitability we saw in 2018 has also continued and grown in 2019, despite fierce competitive pressure and increased operational costs.

As we look ahead, the proceeds of our highly successful convertible bond refinancing completed in January 2020 has replaced our existing debt, providing extra cash resources and further strengthening our balance sheet.  This bond issue will dramatically lower our financing costs and significantly improve the free cash flows for the coming five years. The refinancing will also enable us to invest in the accelerated expansion of our production capacity and of our commercialisation business following the termination of the Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ.) ("Sobi") license. We continue to seek additional in-licensing or acquisition opportunities for products to launch over the coming years to increase our near-term pipeline. We therefore remain confident that we will be continue to deliver significant value to all our stakeholders in 2020 and beyond."

Chief Executive Officer's Commentary

During the year, we built on the strong foundations of the commercial performance of RUCONEST® in 2018 and continued to develop the product in all key markets, growing revenues to €169.0 million in 2019 from €135.1 million in 2018, an increase of 25% and above market consensus.  The US remains our largest market, with strong performance in the region demonstrating the success of our commercial operations there despite competitive pressure.  We also increased our marketing efforts in the major markets of Western Europe, making good gains in France and more recently in the UK and continued penetration in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. With European direct sales reaching levels in key markets during the year which impact growth by eliminating revenue through clawbacks by national governments, the termination of the license with Sobi provides a strong opportunity to grow direct sales in additional European and Middle Eastern markets starting in 2020.

Net profits generated throughout the year

As result of the continuing sales growth, the Company achieved net profits in every quarter, ending the year at €36.2 million, up 45% compared with 2018. Operating profit for the year was also strong: up 60% to €60.9 million (2018: €38.0 million), representing a further improvement in operating margin to 36% (2018: 31%).

In the fourth quarter, we achieved the sales level which triggered the second US$20 million milestone payment to Bausch Health Companies Inc. (formerly Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.), which was paid in February this year. If sales growth continues at or near the current level, there is an increasing likelihood that the final US$25 million will be triggered in a future quarter and paid in 2021 or beyond.  Payment of the remaining milestones in the future will not affect profits, because a provision is taken gradually as the likelihood of the milestones being achieved increases. On the balance sheet, this provision is shown under Other Financial Liabilities.

Investing in sustainable long-term growth

In 2018, we set out our three pillar strategy: the first pillar is development and acquisition for sales growth in HAE; the second pillar is for development to create future sales in new large indications for recombinant C1 esterase inhibitor (RUCONEST® or rhC1INH); and the third pillar for additional new late-stage rare disease or specialty products which make use of our existing and growing commercial infrastructure. During 2019 we have been able to deliver meaningful progress along this strategy.   

We have re-acquired all license territories from Sobi, which allows us to sell directly in all 27 countries of the EU plus the UK and many other eastern European and Middle East countries previously licensed to Sobi. We have initiated clinical studies of rhC1INH in new larger indications. We announced the start of our Phase I/II clinical study in pre-eclampsia (with sites in the Netherlands and Australia) and expect to announce the first patient treated in our Phase IIb study in acute kidney injury in the next couple of months (with sites in Switzerland and later Germany).  We also continued the development program for α-glucosidase for Pompe disease, manufacturing material for preclinical studies enabling an Investigational New Drug (IND) application and developing a scale-up process to enable faster manufacture. Finally, we acquired a novel late-stage program from Novartis, leniolisib for Activated Phosphoinositide 3 Delta Syndrome ("APDS"), which is expected to complete its clinical development over the next year with approval and launch anticipated in 2022. 

To meet future needs for rhC1INH, which may become many times greater than current capacity, we are redeveloping C1 esterase inhibitor from cattle, which allows much larger volumes of source material. We have also initiated work on a new downstream processing plant in the Netherlands, which will double the current processing capacity available to Pharming.  Together, these measures will enable us to start to supply the larger indications if approval is obtained.  

To continue to meet the increasing demand of RUCONEST® for HAE in the meantime, we have already increased our production facilities for source material, with the first of up to three facilities approved by the European Medicines Agency ("EMA") in Europe and currently under review with the US Food & Drug Administration ("FDA").

Successful €125 million issue of convertible bonds

In January 2020, we issued €125 million ($140 million) of convertible bonds due 2025, with a coupon of 3.00% p.a.. The bonds were oversubscribed in a book-building exercise and the offer closed in a few hours. These bonds have the potential to be converted, if the price reaches €2.00 per share, into 62.4 million shares or 9.9% of the issued share capital. These bonds were issued at a time when the share price was near Pharming's ten year high, in order to refinance the balance of the loan facility from Orbimed. The Orbimed facility, while essential at the time of exercise, carried an effective interest rate under IFRS rules of over 13% (and which was further tied to the London Interbank Offering Rate ("LIBOR")).  The bond issue allowed us to repay the Orbimed facility in full eighteen months early.  By issuing these bonds and repaying the Orbimed loan, we have added over €75 million net to our cash resources and reduced the total finance cost of our borrowing by over €3 million per year, as well as ensuring that our borrowing is no longer dependent on the variable LIBOR rates. 

At the same time, mechanisms exist which would allow us to replace the bonds before the conversion price was reached, and replace them with new bonds which would lock in the accumulated profit for bondholders represented by the share price gain in exchange for better terms and a reset of the conversion price to a higher amount. This would result in a lower number of shares backing the bonds, reducing potential dilution for shareholders.  In addition, these bonds can only be repaid or converted into a fixed number of shares.  This means that there will be no recurrence of the large non-cash adjustments required by IFRS for bonds which can be converted into a variable number of shares, which made such a difference to our 2017 accounts.

In summary, this financing has been an outstanding success for Pharming and its shareholders.  It gives us the additional resources to expand our capacity, while still reducing the cost of finance to much less than the current level on the year end debt balance.  As a result of these actions, the balance at the end of February 2020 was €149.2 million ($166.0 million).

Teamwork

None of these achievements, results and developments would be possible without the continued support, expertise and hard work of all our employees. I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank all Pharming employees as well as all of our investors, partners, and debt providers for their support and commitment throughout 2019, which enabled us to execute on the strategic development of Pharming to create a strong, sustainable platform for significant long-term growth.

I look forward with confidence to continuing the growth trajectory of Pharming in 2020 with increased sales, progress on our exciting pipeline projects and new opportunities for enhancing shareholder value.

Summary of 2019

Operational highlights

Financial highlights

Total annual revenues increased to €169 million (including €1.5 million of license revenue) in 2019 from €135.1 million in 2018 (including €0.8 million in license revenue).  The increase in license revenue relates to the release of the remaining balance of the upfront payment received from Sobi at the initiation of the Sobi license which was held on the balance sheet.  This balance was released to the income statement as soon as the Sobi license was terminated.

Operating results improved strongly to a profit of €60.9 million in 2019 from €38.0 million in 2018, an increase of 60% in spite of considerable increases in clinical and R&D activity, mainly due to the strong sales growth in major markets and efficient production of RUCONEST®.  The basic underlying unadjusted operating result (EBITDA) was €66.8 million.  Operating costs also increased significantly from €75.6 million in 2018 to €87.2 million in 2019, reflecting the increased activity in the second production facility, preparing and launching the new clinical studies for pre-eclampsia and acute kidney injury, work on new forms of RUCONEST® and investments in  the new pipeline asset leniolisib in-licensed from Novartis.

The net profit in 2019 of €36.2 million represented an increase of 45% over 2018 (€25.0 million), reflecting improved gross profits less additional costs to provide for the contingent consideration for milestones due to Bausch Health, which are provided on a risk-adjusted basis in accordance with IFRS.

The first milestone amount due to Bausch Health was due and paid in the first quarter of 2019, and the second became due in the fourth quarter and was paid in February 2020.  The amount of this second payment ($20.0 million or €17.8 million) is shown in the current liabilities section of the balance sheet, with the remainder shown under long term liabilities.  Release of the current part of this provision will negate the effect of the milestone payment on the Company's income statement in the first quarter of 2020.

Since we created a deferred tax asset to recognise the likelihood of being able to use our net operating tax losses , the business has continued to grow, such that we began to pay taxes in the USA and are using up net operating losses in the Netherlands. The net effect of our profitability is an increase in the tax charge for 2019 to €10.5 million (2018: Tax income of €24.1 million, relating to an increase in the deferred tax asset).  The tax charge in the Netherlands is met by a reduction in the deferred tax asset balance (December 2019: €30.9 million (2018: € 35.1million)).  This is a strong statement in support of our belief that the underlying sustainable performance of the Company will result in our first corporate income tax payments in our home country of the Netherlands in the next few years.

The equity position improved from €61.8 million in December 2018 to €104.7million in December 2019, mainly due to the changes in the net result achieved by the Company.

Inventories reduced slightly from €17.3 million in December 2018 to €14.5 million in December 2019, largely due to the increase in sales above the effect of movement of inventory from lower value raw materials to higher value drug product. This level of inventory, together with our increased capacity improvements, allows us to continue to meet the growing sales levels both in the US and in Europe without stock shortages.

The cash position (including restricted cash) decreased from €81.5 million at year-end 2018 to €68.6 million at year end 2019. This was mainly due to the strong sales performance of RUCONEST® especially in the third and fourth quarters, balanced by the repayment of over €29 million ($33.3 million) of the Orbimed loan during the year, interest payments totalling €8.7 million ($9.7 million), the payment of €35.5 million ($40 million) in upfronts and milestones ($20 million to Novartis upfront for the leniolisib program and $20 million milestone to Bausch Health), plus the cash payments of €2.5 million to BioConnection and its shareholders in April for the stake acquired in that company. Cash generation has been strong across all four quarters of 2019, as sales revenues grew and as faster credit collection was achieved. 

After the year end

Since 31 December 2019, the following additional events have occurred:

Detailed financial review

Revenues

Revenues increased to €169.0 million in 2019 (2018: €135.1 million). Both years include amounts of deferred license revenue released, reflecting a portion of earlier license fee payments from partners including Sobi and China State Industry for Pharmaceutical Innovation, which have been allocated across a number of financial years in accordance with accounting guidelines. These amounts were €1.5 million in 2019 as the remaining Sobi license revenue was released, and €0.8 million in 2018. 

Revenues from product sales by Pharming and its partners increased to €167.6 million (2018: €134.3 million) reflecting a very good year overall for RUCONEST®.  Sales in the USA produced €162.7million ($182.2 million), up from €126.6 million ($149.3 million) in 2018. This shows the effect on the top line of the excellent continued execution of commercialisation in the USA.

Sales for RUCONEST® in Europe and the Rest of World were €4.9 million (2018: €7.7 million), reflecting clawbacks on direct sales by Pharming in France, and reduced sales of our partner Sobi prior to the license termination.

Costs of product sales in 2019 amounted to €21.4 million (2018: €22.2 million), reflecting the strongly increased sales volume and savings obtained by better inventory management.

Gross profit increased to €147.7 million in 2019 (2018: €113.0 million, or $130 million), an increase of 31%.  The main reasons for this gain were the increased sales in the US and EU coupled with better cost of goods.

Operating Costs

Operating costs increased to €87.2 million ($97.7 million) in 2019 from €75.6 million in 2018. This increase was substantially due to the added cost of clinical research activities relating to the new indications and to development of new forms of RUCONEST®, as well as increases in marketing and sales activities both in the US and in Europe, and in general and administrative costs.

Marketing and sales costs of €39.9 million (2018: €34.5 million) reflect Pharming's additional direct commercialization activities in the USA and in France and the United Kingdom in Europe, which were increased during the year.

R&D costs within these figures increased from €28.9 million in 2018 to €32.9 million in 2019.  In 2019, the increased costs mainly relate to preparing for and initiating the clinical studies of rhC1INH in pre-eclampsia and acute kidney injury, developing the new versions of RUCONEST®, and continuing work on the preparation and production of α-glucosidase for Pompe disease and α-galactosidase for Fabry disease using the Pharming technology.

General and administrative costs increased to €14.3 million (2018: €12.2 million).  The increased costs are mainly related to additional administration resources to support the growing commercial and operations activities in both the USA and the EU.

Operating Result

Operating results improved strongly to a profit of €60.9 million in 2019 from €38.0 million in 2018, an increase of over 60% despite considerable increases in Marketing and Sales and R&D activity, mainly due to the effect of strong sales growth in the USA and lower cost of production of RUCONEST® as outlined above. The basic underlying operating result excluding depreciation and amortization was €66.8 million. 

Financial income and expenses

The 2019 net financial expense was €14.5 million, compared with €37.1 million a year earlier. This is mainly due to two items: (i) the interest on loans and borrowings and non-cash adjustments thereto, totalling approximately €11.3 million; and (ii) the increase in the provision for contingent consideration (i.e. the milestones due to Bausch Health Companies Inc. upon reaching certain sales targets) of €2.9 million; €1.1 million of financial income was received during the year, reflecting interest paid on cash balances. In 2018, a much larger provision of €21.2 million for the Bausch milestones was required.


Taxation

As a result of the growth in sales, it is now probable that the Company will be able to use all its remaining net operating tax losses from previous years going forward. This is reflected in the larger tax charge for the year of €10.5 million (2018: Tax income of €24.1 million which was related to the increase in the deferred tax asset). The balance on the deferred tax asset therefore reduced as it was used to meet the tax charge, from €35.1 million in 2018 to €30.9 million in 2019 – the difference relates to the tax charged in the USA, where no tax losses remain to be used.

Net Result

The net result of a profit of €36.2 million represented a large increase of 45% on the €25.0 million reported in 2018. The main point of difference was the better sales performance in 2019 coupled with the increase in taxation charged to the Group (and actually payable in the USA). We believe this net profitability will be sustainable in future periods.

Intangible assets

The acquisition of the license to leniolisib from Novartis in August 2019 has led to a new intangible asset being created for the upfront price and the amount committed to the final clinical development phase.  This amount, of approximately €18.7 million ($21.0 million), appears as an increase to intangible assets and will be depreciated as usual in accordance with its useful life over the commercial lifespan of the product.

Inventories

Inventories reduced slightly from €17.3 million in December 2017 to €14.5 million in December 2019, largely due to the increase in sales above the effect of movement of inventory from lower value raw materials to higher value drug product.  This level of inventory should enable us to meet the naturally improving sales level in the US and in Europe.

Cash and cash equivalents

The cash position including restricted cash decreased from €81.5 million at year-end 2018 to €68.6 million at year-end 2019. This was mainly due to the cash generated by the strong sales performance of RUCONEST® throughout the year being used for several large payments:

Cash generation has been strong across all four quarters of 2019, as sales revenues grew faster than costs.

The Company's current pattern of sales growth, together with the strong cash generation, high cash balance and tight control over costs going forward, forms the basis of the Board of Management's view that Pharming Group should be accounted for as a going concern.

As the Company's sales are largely in US dollars and the Company's debt is now in Euros, the natural hedge which previously existed and meant that any decline in the US dollar exchange rate over the year to reduce sales reported in Euros had a balancing effect of reducing the size of the debt liability when reported in Euros, and vice versa, is now extinguished. Together with increasing capital spend in Euros on new production facilities and personnel, this means that the Company is now far more dependent on the Euro, and so the functional and reporting currency will remain the Euro for the foreseeable future.  It will also require more active hedging strategies to ensure that a change between the US dollar and the Euro does not have a detrimental effect on the Company's assets, liabilities or business.

Equity

The equity position increased 69% from €61.8 million in December 2018 to €104.7 million in December 2019, mainly due to the net result achieved by the Company.

Performance of Pharming shares

During 2019, the Pharming stock price fluctuated around an average price of €1.079 per share. The year-end price was €1.57 (2018: €0.76), with a high of €1.62 in December and a low of €0.72 in June.

The closing number of shares as at the reporting date was 631,323,467 (2018: 621,501,238). New issues of stock representing a total of 9,822,229 shares were made to investors during the year and related to the long-term incentive plan 2016, exercise of most of the remaining warrants, and exercises of employee options.  As at the date of this report, the fully diluted number of shares is 742,025,041 and the number of shares in issue is 633,726,014.

About Pharming Group N.V.

Pharming is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing innovative products for the safe, effective treatment of rare diseases and unmet medical needs. Pharming's lead product, RUCONEST® (conestat alfa) is a recombinant human C1 esterase inhibitor approved for the treatment of acute Hereditary Angioedema ("HAE") attacks in patients in Europe, the US, Israel and South Korea. The product is available on a named-patient basis in other territories where it has not yet obtained marketing authorisation.

RUCONEST® is commercialised by Pharming in the USA and in Europe, and the Company holds all other commercialisation rights in other countries not specified below. In some of these other countries distribution is made in association with the HAEi Global Access Program (GAP).  RUCONEST® is distributed in Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Venezuela by Cytobioteck, in South Korea by HyupJin Corporation and in Israel by Kamada.

RUCONEST® is also being evaluated for various additional indications. Pharming's technology platform includes a unique, GMP-compliant, validated process for the production of pure recombinant human proteins that has proven capable of producing industrial quantities of high quality recombinant human proteins in a more economical and less immunogenetic way compared with current cell-line based methods.

In addition to RUCONEST® and variants of recombinant human C1 esterase inhibitor, Pharming has recently in-licensed leniolisib from Novartis, a small molecule which is in a registrational study for APDS, a form of Primary Immunodeficiency. 

Leads for enzyme replacement therapy ("ERT") for Pompe and Fabry's diseases are also being produced and optimised respectively at present, with additional programs not involving ERT also being explored at an early stage.

Pharming has a long term partnership with the China State Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry ("CSIPI"), a Sinopharm company, for joint global development of new products, starting with recombinant human Factor VIII for the treatment of Haemophilia A. Preclinical development and manufacturing will take place to global standards at CSIPI and its affiliates and are funded by CSIPI. Clinical development will be shared between the partners with each partner taking the costs for their territories under the partnership.
