SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmacyclics, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: PCYC) today reported financial results and recent developments for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Financial Results for the Six Months and Quarter Ended June 30, 2014

Revenue

Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $113.0 million from $54.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 primarily due to IMBRUVICA(®) (ibrutinib) net product revenue of $109.5 million.

Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2014 increased to $232.4 million from $57.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 primarily due to net product revenue of $165.7 million from sales of IMBRUVICA.

The quarter ended June 30, 2014 represented the Company's first full quarter of IMBRUVICA sales after receiving approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under accelerated approval on February 12, 2014 as a single agent for the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who have received at least one prior therapy. IMBRUVICA first came to market on November 13, 2013 after receiving approval from the FDA under accelerated approval as a single agent for the treatment of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) who have received at least one prior therapy.

Subsequent to June 30, 2014, we announced on July 28, 2014 that the FDA granted IMBRUVICA regular (full) approval for the treatment of patients with CLL who have received at least one prior therapy, and for the treatment of CLL patients with deletion of the short arm of chromosome 17 (del 17p CLL), including treatment naive (frontline) and previously treated del 17p CLL patients. This approval of IMBRUVICA in del 17p CLL triggers $60 million in milestone payments to us under our Agreement with Janssen, which will be recognized as revenue in the third quarter of 2014.

To date, in addition to the upfront payment of $150 million, we have earned milestone payments of $505 million under the Agreement. We may receive up to an additional $320 million ($50 million for development progress, $70 million for regulatory progress and $200 million for approval) in development, regulatory and approval milestone payments, however, clinical development entails risks and we have no assurance as to whether or when the milestone targets might be achieved.

GAAP and Non-GAAP net income (loss)

Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $11.5 million, or $0.15 net income per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.13 net loss per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $19.7 million, or $0.26 net loss per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $19.2 million, or $0.25 net income per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a description of our Non-GAAP Financial Measures. Reconciliation between certain GAAP and Non-GAAP measures is provided at the end of this press release.

GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $18.8 million, or $0.25 net loss per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $39.6 million, or $0.55 net loss per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

GAAP net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $37.1 million, or $0.49 net loss per diluted share, respectively, compared to GAAP net income of $12.4 million or $0.16 net income per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

"We're pleased to report these very strong results today that reflect our commercial success with IMBRUVICA and which indicate a continued strong growth trend for the remainder of the year," said Bob Duggan, Chairman & CEO of Pharmacyclics. "This quarter's results are bolstered by a well executed commercial strategy, availability of compelling clinical data, and a robust presence within scientific peer-review forums. In addition, recent regulatory actions both in the U.S. and in Europe continue to validate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of IMBRUVICA, and strengthen its brand within the CLL prescriber, patient and payor environments."

GAAP and Non-GAAP expenses

Non-GAAP R&D expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $37.5 million, compared to $24.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Non-GAAP SG&A expenses were $36.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $11.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Reconciliation between certain GAAP and Non-GAAP measures is provided at the end of this press release.

GAAP R&D expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $45.7 million, compared to $27.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. GAAP SG&A expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $45.0 million, compared to $14.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

The Agreement with Janssen includes a cost sharing arrangement for certain development activities. In general, Janssen is responsible for approximately 60% of development costs and the Company is responsible for approximately 40% of development costs. Generally, costs associated with commercialization will be included in determining pre-tax profit or pre-tax loss relating to IMBRUVICA, and are to be shared 50% by the Company and 50% by Janssen. The Agreement with Janssen also provides for a $50 million annual cap of the Company's share of IMBRUVICA related R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, and offset by pre-tax commercial profits for each calendar year. The Company recognizes amounts incurred in excess of the annual cap (Excess Amounts) as a reduction to costs and expenses since the Company's repayment of Excess Amounts to Janssen is contingent and would become payable only after the third profitable calendar quarter for the product. Excess Amounts shall be reimbursable only from the Company's share of pre-tax profits (if any) after the third profitable calendar quarter for the product. Under the Agreement, Janssen will fund maximum Excess Amounts of $200 million, plus interest of up to $25 million.

The Company recorded no Excess Amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. Included in GAAP and non-GAAP costs and expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 was Excess Amounts of $20.4 million in total. Of the Excess Amounts recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, $17.4 million was recorded as a reduction to R&D expenses and $3.0 million was recorded as a reduction to SG&A expenses. To date, the Company had recorded Excess Amounts totaling $134.3 million.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company's share of R&D expenses and SG&A expenses related to IMBRUVICA under the Janssen collaboration Agreement was calculated as follows (in thousands):

Regulatory Update

On July 28, 2014, the U.S. FDA granted IMBRUVICA full approval for the treatment of CLL patients who have received at least one prior therapy, and for the treatment of CLL patients with deletion of the short arm of chromosome 17 (del 17p CLL), including treatment naive (frontline) and previously treated del 17p CLL patients. This was the first full FDA approval for IMBRUVICA, and was granted only five and a half months after the original accelerated approval for patients with previously treated CLL, which was granted in February 2014.

This full approval is based on data from the Phase III RESONATE((TM)) study (PCYC-1112-CA), a randomized, multi-center, international head-to-head comparison of single-agent, orally-administered IMBRUVICA (ibrutinib) versus the intravenous, monoclonal antibody ofatumumab targeting the CD 20 antigen. This study enrolled 373 patients with CLL and 18 patients with small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), who received at least one prior therapy. The median number of prior treatments was 2 (range, 1 to 13 treatments). At baseline, the median age of these patients was 67 years, 58% of whom had at least one tumor >= 5 cm, and 32% of whom had the del 17p mutation. Patients receiving IMBRUVICA demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) and overall response rate (ORR) as compared to patients treated with ofatumumab. The median PFS and OS has not been reached on the IMBRUVICA arm. There was a 78% reduction in the risk of progression or death as assessed by an independent review committee (IRC) according to the modified IWCLL criteria (HR 0.22, 95% CI, 0.15 to 0.32, P<0.0001). In addition, the analysis of overall survival demonstrated a 57% statistically significant reduction in the risk of death for patients in the IMBRUVICA arm (HR 0.43; 95 CI, 0.24 to 0.79, P<0.005). This was observed despite a total of 57 patients who were initially randomized to ofatumumab crossing over to receive IMBRUVICA prior to the analysis. For previously treated del 17p CLL patients, there was a 75% reduction in the risk of progression or death as assessed by an IRC (HR 0.25, 95% CI, 0.14 to 0.45, P<0.0001).

In addition, on July 25, 2014, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) issued a positive opinion recommending full marketing approval for IMBRUVICA in the European Union. The CHMP recommendation for IMBRUVICA is for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory MCL, or adult patients with CLL who have received at least one prior therapy, or in first line in the presence of 17p deletion or TP53 mutation in patients unsuitable for chemo?immunotherapy. The positive opinion was based on data from the Phase II study (PCYC-1104) in MCL, a Phase III RESONATE(TM) study (PCYC-1112-CA) and a Phase II study (PCYC-1102) in CLL.

The EMA is a decentralized agency of the European Union responsible for the scientific evaluation of medicines developed by pharmaceutical companies for use in the 28 countries of the European Union. The positive opinion of the EMA's CHMP will be reviewed by the European Commission, and a final decision on IMBRUVICA is anticipated later this year. In addition to European markets, a worldwide regulatory filing program for IMBRUVICA currently is underway.

Clinical Update

IMBRUVICA (ibrutinib) clinical trials are active in all regions including US, Europe, Asia Pacific, Canada and Latin America. Currently IMBRUVICA is being developed in 8 different B-cell malignancies. There are 12 Phase III clinical trials initiated with IMBRUVICA and a total of 50 trials are registered on www.clinicaltrials.gov, of which 23 are investigating combination regimens while the remaining 27 are investigating IMBRUVICA monotherapy. The total planned enrollment for all of our clinical studies investigating IMBRUVICA is approximately 7,200 patients. As of today there are seven Phase III studies focused on patients with CLL, two designed for patients with MCL, one for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, one for patients with follicular lymphoma and one for Waldenstroms macroglobulinemia. To date, over 3,300 patients have been treated in Company-sponsored trials which are being conducted in over 35 countries around the globe and which involve more than 800 principal investigators.

During the second quarter, we initiated a Company-sponsored, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase III study of IMBRUVICA or placebo in combination with rituximab in previously treated Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia patients. The total planned enrollment for this study is 180 patients.

In the second quarter, we provided significant preclinical updates in chronic graft versus host disease (GvHD) and solid tumors (Her2-posivtive breast cancer) which led to the publication of two abstracts at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR). Since then we initiated our first trial with IMBRUVICA in GvHD. The study is a Phase Ib/II investigating the safety and efficacy of IMBRUVICA in patients with chronic GVHD who are steroid dependent or refractory. The study is currently recruiting with a total planned enrollment of 39 patients.

During the three months ended June 30, 2014, we provided updates on several of our clinical programs in various press releases and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Pharmacyclics participated in three prominent medical conferences, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in San Diego, Ca, the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, IL, and the 19th European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress in Milan, Italy. The oral presentation of the Phase III RESONATE(TM) and its inclusion in the official press program during the 50th Annual ASCO meeting was a historical milestone for the Company and captured the attention of the scientific community, as well as worldwide media outlets. The data also were validated at the EHA Congress in Milan where they were presented during the presidential symposium with approximately 4,000 hematologists in attendance. During these scientific conferences, IMBRUVICA was presented in four oral sessions and in 14 posters covering results in seven histologies (i.e., CLL, small lymphocytic lymphoma, HCL, MCL, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and marginal zone lymphoma).

About IMBRUVICA

IMBRUVICA is indicated for the treatment of patients with mantle cell lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia who have received at least one prior therapy, and for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia with deletion of 17p who are either treatment naïve or previously treated. Accelerated approval was granted for the MCL indication and is based on overall response rate. Improvements in survival or disease-related symptoms have not been established. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

IMBRUVICA is a new, first-in-class, oral therapy that inhibits an enzyme called Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK). BTK is a key signaling molecule of the B-cell receptor signaling complex that plays an important role in the survival and spread of malignant B-cells. IMBRUVICA blocks signals that tell malignant B-cells to multiply and spread uncontrollably. It is one of the first medicines to file for FDA approval via the new Breakthrough Therapy Designation pathway, and is the recipient of three Breakthrough Therapy Designations for various indications. To date, 11 Phase III trials have been initiated with IMBRUVICA and 43 trials are currently registered on www.clinicaltrials.gov. Janssen and Pharmacyclics entered into a collaboration and license agreement in December 2011 to co-develop and co-commercialize IMBRUVICA.
