VILLA GUARDIA (COMO), Italy, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gentium S.p.A. (Nasdaq:GENT) (the "Company") today reported financial results for the nine-month period and quarter ended September 30, 2013. The Company reports its financial condition and operating results using U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The Company's financial statements are prepared using the Euro as its functional currency. On September 30, 2013, EUR 1.00 = $1.3505.

"We are proud that Gentium has achieved a major milestone in obtaining the Marketing Authorization for Defitelio® (defibrotide) for treatment of severe hepatic veno-occlusive disease ("sVOD"). As the first drug to be approved for the treatment of sVOD, Defitelio® (defibrotide) will provide physician with a life-saving option addressing a high unmet medical need for a disease with a high mortality rate, in excess of 80%," stated Dr. Khalid Islam, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Gentium S.p.A. "We are also pleased that EMA's Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) has recommended that defibrotide be granted the orphan drug designation for a second indication for the prevention of acute graft versus host disease (aGvHD) in the EU, providing further post-approval marketing exclusivity. We believe that we would obtain the ratification from the EU Commission by year-end. aGvHD affects between 30-50% of all donor transplants, and in the more severe is associated with high morbidity and mortality and remains an area of high unmet medical need. We have promising clinical data from our earlier Phase 3 trial and now look forward to planning and initiating additional studies in this important indication. In the US, we continue to work closely with the FDA as regards the resubmission of our New Drug Application for Defibrotide, which now we expect to accomplish in the first half of 2014".

"We are pleased to report that Defibrotide usage during the nine- and three-month periods ended September 30, 2013 increased by 41% and 72%, respectively, when compared to the nine- and three-months periods ended September 30, 2012. Defibrotide net product sales for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013, amounting to EUR 9.96 million exceeded by EUR 2.19 million or 28% the net product sales of EUR 7.77 million realized during the second quarter of 2013. The third quarter of 2013 represents the highest sales quarter for defibrotide since the commencement of our cost recovery and named-patient program," stated Mr. Salvatore Calabrese, Senior Vice President Finance, CFO/COO of Gentium S.p.A. Additionally, Gentium's liquidity has increased by EUR 8.02 million since the beginning of the year despite the increased expenditure to support our NDA filing, the commercial infrastructure and reducing the long term debt. Like previous quarters in 2013, this quarter remains cash flow positive and profitable, with a net income as of September 30, 2013 of EUR 5.36 million and basic and diluted EPS of EUR 0.35 (USD 0.47) and EUR 0.33 (USD 0.45), respectively.

Operating Results

Total product sales for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 were EUR 28.79 million compared with EUR 20.77 million for the same period in 2012, an increase of EUR 8.02 million or 39%. The variance was primarily due to the increase in sales of Defibrotide through the named-patient programs, attributable to a price increase, which came into effect in the second quarter and an increase in sales volume of one of our API's business.

For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, named-patient and cost recovery programs sales amounted to EUR 24.22 million and EUR 17.14 million, respectively, representing an increase of EUR 7.08 million or 41% principally due to price increase. The decrease in volume, experienced in the second quarter of 2013, as consequence of an announced price increase, was totally absorbed during the third quarter month of 2013.

APIs revenues were EUR 4.56 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013, as compared to EUR 3.63 million for the same period in 2012, reflecting an increase of EUR 0.93 million or 26%. The increase was primarily due to higher volumes of sales in the sulglicotide business which passed from EUR 2.10 million to EUR 3.42 million, partially offset by a decrease of EUR 0.09 million and EUR 0.30 million in the urokinase and heparin businesses, respectively, largely attributable to volume.

Other revenues were EUR 1.39 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 compared with EUR 0.78 million for the same period in 2012, representing an increase of EUR 0.61 million. The variance was mainly due to an increase in activities that were eligible for reimbursement from Sigma-Tau under a cost sharing arrangement with the Company, which amounted to EUR 1.02 million and EUR 0.73 million for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Cost of goods sold was EUR 4.17 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 compared with EUR 4.16 million for the same period in 2012. Cost of goods sold as a percentage of product sales was 14% for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 compared with 20% for the same period in 2012. In prior year period, we released a previous established reserve of EUR 0.63 million, due to the sale of an API that was written-off in Q4/2011, which contributed positively on the gross margin, without such release cost of goods sold as percentage of product sales would have been 23% instead of 20%. When compared to prior year period, the decrease in the incidence of cost of goods sold as percentage of product sale was attributable to increase in price and decrease in service fees for Defibrotide distributed on a named patient basis and to a slight increase in margin in sulglicotide due to renegotiation of the sale price which come into effect in 2013.

Research and development expenses were EUR 11.12 million, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013, compared with EUR 7.79 million, for the same period in 2012, an increase of EUR 3.33 million or 43%. Research and development expenses were primarily for the development of Defibrotide to treat and prevent VOD. The increase from the comparable period in 2012 is attributed to increase in payroll and payroll related cost due to increase in headcounts, travel expenses, the engagement of contract research organizations and outside scientific and regulatory consultancy, to assist the Company in addressing issues raised by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and supporting the Company through the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) regulatory review process.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were EUR 8.46 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 compared with EUR 8.27 million for the same period in 2012, an increase of EUR 0.19 million, or 2%. Selling, general and administrative expenses refer mainly to legal and corporate expenses, payroll and payroll related costs, market research, consultancy, travel and stock-based compensation costs.

Net income was EUR 5.36 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2013 compared with a net income of EUR 0.16 million for the same period in 2012. The difference was mainly due to an increase in sales of Defibrotide sold through the named-patient programs, a slight increase in the APIs sales and other income and revenues under the cost sharing agreement entered into with Sigma-Tau. Also contributing to the variance there was an increase in research and development and selling, general and administrative expenses.

Explanation and Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with greater insight and a better understanding of how our management and board of directors analyze our financial performance and make operational decisions, we supplement our consolidated financial statements that are presented on a GAAP basis in this press release with the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per basic and diluted share.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation; they are in addition to, and are not a substitution, for financial performance measures under GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Further, we may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP measures have limitations since they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

We define non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest income (expense), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expense, share based compensation expense and net unrealized foreign currency exchange gain (loss). We define non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA per basic and diluted share as non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA applicable to common shareholders divided by the weighted average basic and fully diluted shares outstanding during the period as computed in accordance with GAAP.

We use non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA:

  • as a measure of operating performance, because it does not include the impact of items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance;
  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget;
  • to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business;
  • to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; and
  • in communications with our board of directors and investors concerning our financial performance.

We believe that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA per basic and diluted share are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance for the following reasons:

  • these and similar non-GAAP measures are widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon financing and accounting methods, book values of assets, capital structures and the methods by which assets were acquired;
  • securities analysts often use these and similar non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies; and
  • by comparing our non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in different historical periods, our investors can evaluate our operating results without the additional variations of interest income (expense), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense and unrealized foreign currency exchange gain (loss).

We understand that, although measures similar to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluation of companies, these measures have limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results of operations as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations of these specific non-GAAP financial measures are:

  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or other contractual commitments;
  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect share-based compensation expense;
  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for income taxes;
  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect net interest income (expense); and
  • non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA does not reflect net unrealized foreign currency exchange gain (loss).
