PARSIPPANY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/14 -- The Medicines Company (NASDAQ: MDCO), a global company focused on saving lives, alleviating suffering, and improving the economic efficiency of the world's leading hospitals, today announced first quarter financial results for 2014.

Highlights for the first quarter of 2014:

Worldwide net revenue increased by 14% to $177.2 million for the first quarter of 2014 from $155.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 driven by:

  • Worldwide Angiomax® (bivalirudin)/Angiox® (bivalirudin) revenue, which was up 9% from $142.9 million in 2013 to $155.7 million in 2014, driven by United States growth (up from $131.3 million in 2013 to $146.2 million in 2014).

  • Recothrom® Thrombin topical (recombinant) sales were $13.5 million in the US in the first quarter of 2014. Sales during the first quarter of 2013 were $8.6 million, after we licensed Recothrom in the United States in February 2013.

  • Other products including Argatroban RTU, Cleviprex® (clevidipine), Minocin IV and injectable generics recorded sales in the first quarter of 2014 of $8.0 million.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $5.0 million, or $0.08 per share, compared with net loss of $11.6 million, or $0.21 per share for the first quarter of 2013.

Adjusted net income(1) for the first quarter of 2014 increased 25% to $22.1 million, or $0.33 per share(1), compared to adjusted net income(1) of $17.7 million, or $0.31 per share(1) for the first quarter 2013.

Glenn Sblendorio, President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "The first quarter was a strong start to the year for us with continued revenue growth. We remain focused on the progression of our late stage portfolio through regulatory filings, reimbursement processes, and manufacturing to execute on the six product launches anticipated in the next 18 months."

"We are continuing to execute the needed steps with our acute/intensive care portfolio. We now have 6 new molecular entity regulatory submissions under review at the FDA and the EMA, spanning our three areas of focus in leading hospitals, namely: acute cardiovascular care, surgery and perioperative care, and serious infectious disease care," said Clive Meanwell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are very focused on execution right now."

(1) Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial performance measures with no standardized definitions under US GAAP. For further information and a detailed reconciliation, refer to the Non-GAAP Financial Performance Measures and Reconciliations of GAAP to Adjusted Net income sections of this release for explanations of the amounts excluded and included to arrive at adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share amounts.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE MEASURES

In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release also contains adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share measures that we believe 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 income excludes upfront collaboration payments, amortization of acquired intangible assets, deal related charges, restructuring charges, stock-based compensation expense, changes in contingent consideration, non-cash interest and net income tax adjustments. See the attached Reconciliations of GAAP to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share for explanations of the amounts excluded and included to arrive at adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2013.

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. We typically exclude certain GAAP items that management does not believe affect our basic operations and that do not meet the GAAP definition of unusual or non-recurring items. Other companies may define these measures in different ways.
