The Medicines Company Reports Second-Quarter 2016 Business and Financial Results

27 Jul 2016

— Advanced potential blockbuster R&D programs —

— Completed divestiture of non-core cardiovascular assets —

— Refinanced substantial portion of near-term debt obligations —

— Transactions significantly strengthen balance sheet and provide valuable strategic and operational flexibility —

PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 27, 2016-- The Medicines Company (NASDAQ:MDCO) today announced its business and financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company delivered strong execution against its strategic objectives by driving further advancement of its four potential blockbuster development programs and taking actions that generated non-dilutive capital and strategic and operational flexibility to enable it to continue to unlock the value of these programs.

Key highlights included:

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

CARBAVANCE® (meropenem-vaborbactam): Announced that Carbavance met both FDA and EMA pre-specified primary endpoints in the Phase 3 TANGO 1 clinical trial in patients with complicated urinary tract infections. Carbavance also demonstrated statistical superiority over piperacillin-tazobactam, with overall success in 98.4% of patients treated with Carbavance, using the FDA primary endpoint. Carbavance was well-tolerated in the trial. This follows the granting of Fast Track status for Carbavance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2016 and the designation of Carbavance as a Qualified Infectious Disease Product, as authorized under the GAIN Act, in 2013. Enrollment is continuing in the Phase 3 TANGO 2 clinical trial, comparing Carbavance's safety, tolerability, and efficacy with best available therapy in patients with serious infections due to confirmed or suspected CRE. The Company expects to submit a New Drug Application to the FDA in early 2017.

PCSK9si (PCSK9 synthesis inhibitor): Announced completion of patient enrollment ahead of schedule in the Phase 2 ORION-1 clinical trial of PCSK9si, an investigational first-in-class RNA interference proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 synthesis inhibitor. Interim three-month and six-month efficacy and safety data from patients in ORION-1 are expected to be available, analyzed and presented before the end of 2016.

MDCO-216: Completed enrollment of more than 100 of 120 total planned patients in the MILANO-PILOT study evaluating MDCO-216’s effects on atherosclerotic plaque burden. Pursuant to the Interim Statistical Analysis Plan governing monitoring by the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC), an interim safety and efficacy analysis is currently being performed for the first 40 patients who have completed the end of treatment. The interim analysis will be reviewed by the IDMC in August. The Company is blinded and firewalled from all clinical data during the IDMC’s evaluation. If there are no safety concerns that require further evaluation and if pre-defined efficacy criteria are met, the IDMC will provide efficacy data from the first 40 patients to the Company. In any event, the Company expects to provide an update on the MILANO-PILOT trial in August.

ABP-700: Completed Phase 1 clinical pharmacology, dosing and safety studies in more than 300 subjects, including ABP-700’s use with pre- and co-medications routinely given as part of procedural sedation and induction of general anesthesia. In June, the Company dosed the first patient in a Phase 2 clinical trial for procedural sedation. The trial is expected to enroll 75 patients undergoing elective colonoscopies at three sites in The Netherlands. In consultation with the FDA, the Company will perform an additional animal study to support the submission of an Investigational New Drug Application in the United States. We expect to report results from the Phase 2 trial before the end of 2016.

STRATEGIC ACTIONS

  • Generated non-dilutive capital by completing the sale of the Company’s non-core cardiovascular products (Cleviprex (clevidipine) injection emulsion, Kengreal (cangrelor), and rights to Argatroban for injection) to Chiesi for an initial payment of $264 million in cash plus the potential to receive up to $480 million in sales-based milestone payments.
  • Continued to implement the previously announced restructuring plan designed to reduce operating expenses and R&D by $65 million to $80 million annually.
  • Completed the offering and sale of $402.5 million aggregate principal amount of 2.75% convertible notes due 2023 and repurchased $220 million (approximately 80%) of the Company’s 2017 convertible notes.
  • Continued to build senior management depth with the addition of Tony Kingsley, President and Chief Operating Officer, to help oversee the day-to-day operations and lead the Company’s commercial activities.

“We continue our focus on saving lives, alleviating suffering, and improving the economic efficiency of healthcare, but our purpose has magnified with the scale of the problems we are addressing with our programs and the numbers of patients we can potentially touch,” said Clive Meanwell, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of The Medicines Company. “Through our execution over the last three quarters we have put ourselves in a position to focus on these big problems with our four core clinical development projects. We expect the pace of our progress to continue through the rest of 2016 with important clinical milestones for PCSK9si, MDCO-216, Carbavance and ABP-700.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE MEASURES

In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release also contains adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share from continuing operations attributable to The Medicines Company. We believe these measures provide investors and management with supplemental information relating to operating performance and trends that facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information.

Adjusted net loss from continuing operations excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring charges, milestone payments, changes in contingent purchase price, expenses incurred for certain transactions, non-cash interest expense, gain on sale of investment, gain on remeasurement of equity investment, gain on sale of business, loss on extinguishment of debt and net income tax adjustments. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business and are important in comparing current results with prior period results and understanding projected operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures provide the Company and its investors with an indication of the Company’s baseline performance before items that are considered by the Company not to be reflective of the Company’s ongoing results. See the attached Reconciliations of GAAP to Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Loss per Share for explanations of the amounts excluded and included to arrive at adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share amounts for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

These adjusted measures are non-GAAP and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company strongly encourages investors to review its consolidated financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and cautions investors that the non-GAAP measures used by the Company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.
