Orphan drugs make 35% Horizon’s sale in Q3 2016

Horizon Pharma has announced its third-quarter 2016 financial results on Monday. 

Third-quarter 2016 GAAP net sales, including the previously announced $65 million litigation settlement with Express Scripts as a one-time reduction, were $208.7 million, a decrease of 8 percent compared to the third quarter of 2015, primarily attributable to the settlement. Non-GAAP adjusted net sales excluding the $65 million settlement were $273.7 million, an increase of 21 percent compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Medicines for rare diseases, which include RAVICTI, ACTIMMUNE, KRYSTEXXA and BUPHENYL, represented 35 percent of total non-GAAP adjusted net sales in the third quarter of 2016, an increase from 29 percent of total net sales in the third quarter of 2015, said the company.

On a GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2016, net loss was $5.9 million and non-GAAP adjusted net income was $115.5 million.

“We delivered strong results in the third quarter as we continued to execute on our long-term strategy of building a more-diversified, sustainable biopharmaceutical company anchored by a growing mix of orphan medicines,” said Timothy P. Walbert, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Horizon Pharma plc.  “We have made several strategic decisions this year to put Horizon Pharma on a strong path forward, including securing formulary status with two major PBMs for our primary care medicines and completing two significant acquisitions in rare diseases.”
