SUMMIT, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) reported net product sales of $3,890 million for the third quarter of 2018, an 18 percent increase from the same period in 2017. Celgene reported third quarter 2018 total revenue of $3,892 million, an 18 percent increase compared to $3,287 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Based on U.S. GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), Celgene reported net income of $1,082 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.50 for the third quarter of 2018. For the third quarter of 2017, GAAP net income was $988 million and diluted EPS was $1.21.

The adjusted operating expense categories presented below exclude share-based employee compensation expense and collaboration-related upfront expense. Please see the attached Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income for further information relevant to the interpretation of adjusted financial measures and reconciliations of these adjusted financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures, respectively.

Net Product Sales Performance

  • REVLIMID® sales for the third quarter increased 18 percent to $2,449 million. REVLIMID® sales growth was driven by increases in market share and extended treatment duration. U.S. sales of $1,667 million and international sales of $782 million increased 22 percent and 9 percent year-over-year, respectively.
  • POMALYST®/IMNOVID® sales for the third quarter were $513 million, an increase of 23 percent year-over-year.

On a GAAP basis, R&D expenses were $1,081 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $1,347 million for the same period in 2017. Adjusted R&D expenses were $948 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $698 million for the third quarter of 2017. The current period included an increase in R&D expense associated with the acquisition of Juno Therapeutics (Juno) and regulatory submission-related work on multiple programs. Additional R&D expenses (only included on a GAAP basis) decreased in 2018, as outlined in the attached Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income.

Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A)

On a GAAP basis, SG&A expenses were $746 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $608 million for the same period in 2017. Adjusted SG&A expenses were $642 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $521 million for the third quarter of 2017. The current period included an increase in SG&A expense associated with the acquisition of Juno and marketing-related expenses. Additional SG&A expense (only included on a GAAP basis) increased in 2018, as outlined in the attached Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, Marketable Debt Securities and Publicly-Traded Equity Securities

Operating cash flow was $1.9 billion in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $1.1 billion for the third quarter of 2017. In the third quarter, Celgene received approximately 6 million of its shares upon final settlement of the accelerated share repurchase (ASR) program, which commenced during the second quarter of 2018. The total number of shares repurchased under the ASR agreement was approximately 24.0 million at a weighted average price of $83.53 per share.

  • In collaboration with partner bluebird bio, the clinical program evaluating bb2121 in earlier lines of multiple myeloma is advancing, including the phase II MM-002 and phase III MM-003 trials.
  • In October, Celgene announced results from a phase II/III cooperative group study (ECOG E3A06) conducted by the National Cancer Institute in conjunction with the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group. In the study, single-agent REVLIMID® achieved a statistically significant improvement in the primary endpoint of progression-free survival compared to observation in patients with smoldering myeloma. Data from the ECOG E3A06 study will be presented at a future medical meeting.
  • At the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 congress in October, efficacy and safety data were presented for the first time from the Genentech-sponsored phase III IMpassion130 trial evaluating TECENTRIQ® (atezolizumab) in combination with ABRAXANE® in patients with previously untreated metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. These data were simultaneously published in The New England Journal of Medicine. In addition, data were presented from the Genentech-sponsored phase III IMpower130 trial evaluating first-line treatment of TECENTRIQ® plus chemotherapy (carboplatin and ABRAXANE®) in patients with stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Forward-Looking Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements, which are generally statements that are not historical facts. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the words "expects," "anticipates," "believes," "intends," "estimates," "plans," "will," “outlook” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s current plans, estimates, assumptions and projections, and speak only as of the date they are made. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement in light of new information or future events, except as otherwise required by law. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond our control. Actual results or outcomes may differ materially from those implied by the forward-looking statements as a result of the impact of a number of factors, many of which are discussed in more detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this document also contains certain non-GAAP financial measures based on management’s view of performance including:

  • Adjusted research and development expense
  • Adjusted selling, general and administrative expense
  • Adjusted operating margin
  • Adjusted net income
  • Adjusted earnings per share

Management uses such measures internally for planning and forecasting purposes and to measure the performance of the Company. We believe these adjusted financial measures provide useful and meaningful information to us and investors because they enhance investors’ understanding of the continuing operating performance of our business and facilitate the comparison of performance between past and future periods. These adjusted financial measures are non-GAAP measures and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When preparing these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures we typically exclude certain GAAP items that management does not consider to be normal, recurring cash operating expenses but that may not meet the definition of unusual or non-recurring items. Other companies may define these measures in different ways. The following categories of items are excluded from adjusted financial results:

Acquisition and Divestiture-Related Costs: We exclude the impact of certain amounts recorded in connection with business combinations and divestitures from our adjusted financial results that are either non-cash or not normal, recurring operating expenses due to their nature, variability of amounts, and lack of predictability as to occurrence and/or timing. These amounts may include non-cash items such as the amortization of acquired intangible assets, amortization of purchase accounting adjustments to inventories, intangible asset impairment charges and expense or income related to changes in the estimated fair value measurement of contingent consideration and success payments. We also exclude transaction and certain other cash costs associated with business acquisitions and divestitures that are not normal, recurring operating expenses, including severance costs which are not part of a formal restructuring program.

Share-Based Compensation Expense: We exclude share-based compensation from our adjusted financial results because share-based compensation expense, which is non-cash, fluctuates from period to period based on factors that are not within our control, such as our stock price on the dates share-based grants are issued.

Collaboration-Related Upfront Expenses: We exclude collaboration-related upfront expenses from our adjusted financial results because we do not consider them to be normal, recurring operating expenses due to their nature, variability of amounts, and lack of predictability as to occurrence and/or timing. Upfront payments to collaboration partners are made at the commencement of a relationship anticipated to continue for a multi-year period and provide us with intellectual property rights, option rights and other rights with respect to particular programs. The variability of amounts and lack of predictability of collaboration-related upfront expenses makes the identification of trends in our ongoing research and development activities more difficult. We believe the presentation of adjusted research and development, which does not include collaboration-related upfront expenses, provides useful and meaningful information about our ongoing research and development activities by enhancing investors’ understanding of our normal, recurring operating research and development expenses and facilitates comparisons between periods and with respect to projected performance. All expenses incurred subsequent to the initiation of the collaboration arrangement, such as research and development cost-sharing expenses/reimbursements and milestone payments up to the point of regulatory approval are considered to be normal, recurring operating expenses and are included in our adjusted financial results.

Research and Development Asset Acquisition Expense: We exclude costs associated with acquiring rights to pre-commercial compounds because we do not consider such costs to be normal, recurring operating expenses due to their nature, variability of amounts, and lack of predictability as to occurrence and/or timing. Research and development asset acquisition expenses includes expenses to acquire rights to pre-commercial compounds from a collaboration partner when there will be no further participation from the collaboration partner or other parties. The variability of amounts and lack of predictability of research and development asset acquisition expenses makes the identification of trends in our ongoing research and development activities more difficult. We believe the presentation of adjusted research and development, which does not include research and development asset acquisition expenses, provides useful and meaningful information about our ongoing research and development activities by enhancing investors’ understanding of our normal, recurring operating research and development expenses and facilitates comparisons between periods and with respect to projected performance.

Restructuring Costs: We exclude costs associated with restructuring initiatives from our adjusted financial results. These costs include amounts associated with facilities to be closed, employee separation costs and costs to move operations from one location to another. We do not frequently undertake restructuring initiatives and therefore do not consider such costs to be normal, recurring operating expenses.

Certain Other Items: We exclude certain other significant items that may occur occasionally and are not normal, recurring cash operating expenses from our adjusted financial results. Such items are evaluated on an individual basis based on both the quantitative and the qualitative aspect of their nature and generally represent items that, either as a result of their nature or magnitude, we would not anticipate occurring as part of our normal business on a regular basis. While not all-inclusive, examples of certain other significant items excluded from adjusted financial results would be: significant litigation-related loss contingency accruals and expenses to settle other disputed matters and, effective for fiscal year 2018, changes in the fair value of our equity securities upon the adoption of ASU 2016-01 (Financial Instruments-Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities).

Estimated Tax Impact From Above Adjustments: We exclude the net income tax impact of the non-tax adjustments described above from our adjusted financial results. The net income tax impact of the non-tax adjustments includes the impact on both current and deferred income taxes and is based on the taxability of the adjustment under local tax law and the statutory tax rate in the tax jurisdiction where the adjustment was incurred.

Non-Operating Tax Adjustments: We exclude the net income tax impact of certain other significant income tax items, which are not associated with our normal, recurring operations (“Non-Operating Tax Items”), from our adjusted financial results. Non-Operating Tax Items include items which may occur occasionally and are not normal, recurring operating expenses (or benefits), including adjustments related to acquisitions, divestitures, collaborations, certain adjustments to the amount of unrecognized tax benefits related to prior year tax positions, the impact of tax reform legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (2017 Tax Act), and other similar items. We also exclude excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies that arise upon vesting or exercise of share-based payments recognized as income tax benefits or expenses due to their nature, variability of amounts, and lack of predictability as to occurrence and/or timing.

See the attached Reconciliations of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income for explanations of the amounts excluded and included to arrive at the adjusted measures for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, and for the projected amounts for the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2018.
