Revance Therapeutics Releases Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Financial Results and Reiterates 2015 Outlook

NEWARK, Calif., March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVNC), a specialty biopharmaceutical company developing botulinum toxin products for the use in aesthetic and therapeutic indications, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

The company's loss from operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 was $13.8 million. For the full year ended December 31, 2014, the company's loss from operations was $52.1 million. Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2014 were $171.0 million.

Recent Highlights

  • Initiated the BELMONT Phase 2 active comparator trial to evaluate the safety, efficacy and duration of effect of the company's injectable RT002 to treat glabellar (frown) lines. Revance anticipates reporting interim duration results from this study in late 2015.
  • Publication in the peer reviewed journal, Dermatologic Surgery, of positive data from its Phase 1/2 study of RT002 injectable botulinum toxin type A for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines. Initial results from the study were announced last April and showed RT002 met its efficacy and safety endpoints with an extended duration of action of seven months.
  • Appointed Dr. Philip Vickers, the Global Head of Research & Development at Shire, to the Board of Directors. Dr. Vickers brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in preclinical research, clinical development and regulatory affairs to the company's board.

"2014 was a transformational year for Revance. We successfully completed our initial public offering (IPO) and follow-on stock offering. We grew our unique, patented technology from one drug candidate, focused on a single indication, to a significantly expanded clinical path. Today, our pipeline includes two product candidates and four indications targeting both aesthetic and therapeutic opportunities in the neurotoxin market, with many more opportunities to pursue in the future," said President and Chief Executive Officer, Dan Browne.

"We continue to see development progress on both of our product candidates, topical RT001 and injectable RT002. Most recently, we launched our injectable RT002 BELMONT study, a Phase 2 active comparator clinical trial against BOTOX® Cosmetic. Enrollment is on track and we look forward to comparing RT002's duration of effect to the market leader later this year. We are also narrowing in on our selected injectable RT002 therapeutic indication for muscle movement disorders and expect to announce our decision in the coming quarter.

"Today, we better understand our topical RT001 drug product, its characteristics and performance. After completing a thorough analysis of the data and several manufacturing process changes, we are starting a new open-label study using drug product manufactured in our Revance facility. We expect to complete that study in the first half of the year, followed by the initiation of the RT001 Phase 3 pivotal study and reporting of top line data in the second half of 2015. We also plan to initiate a Phase 2 clinical study using RT001 for the treatment of hyperhidrosis in mid-2015, with preliminary efficacy results from this trial in the second half of the year.

"As we enter 2015, we have the infrastructure and product pipeline in place to execute from a solid platform. The enriched capabilities of our management team, supported by the expanded expertise of our board, provide the foundation we need to pursue four clinical studies in 2015 to demonstrate the power of our patented TransMTS® peptide technology. We believe topical RT001 and injectable RT002 can potentially deliver a truly differentiated experience with botulinum toxin. I am confident that we are well-positioned as an emerging specialty pharmaceutical company to not just compete in the established $3 billion neurotoxin market, but also to significantly grow that market with our proprietary treatments," concluded Browne.

Summary Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 were $9.1 million and $33.4 million, respectively, compared to $6.2 million and $27.8 million for the same periods in 2013, respectively. The increase in research and development expenses is primarily attributable to increased costs related to personnel, initiation of clinical trials, the manufacturing facility, and product development activities.

Sales, general, and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 were $4.8 million and $19.0 million, respectively, compared to $3.0 million and $11.0 million for the same periods in 2013, respectively. The increase in sales, general, and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to increased costs related to personnel and administrative activities to support the operation of a public company.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 were $13.9 million and $52.4 million, respectively, compared to $9.2 million and $38.8 million for the same periods in 2013, respectively. Stock-based compensation for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 was $1.9 million and $6.5 million, respectively. When excluding depreciation and stock-based compensation, total operating expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 were $11.5 million and $43.9 million, respectively.

Net loss for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 was $14.2 million and $62.9 million, respectively, compared to $10.1 million and $52.4 million for the same periods in 2013, respectively. Interest expense for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014 was $0.4 million and $10.7 million, respectively. Upon completion of the IPO in February 2014, Revance recorded non-cash interest expense, including loss on extinguishment, of $9.6 million in connection with the settlement of previously outstanding convertible notes.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2014 were $171.0 million. Cash burn for the full year 2014 was approximately $70 million.

2015 Financial Outlook

As previously announced on January 12, 2015, Revance expects cash burn for 2015 to be in the range of $74 to $84 million. The company expects 2015 non-GAAP operating expense to be in the range of $72 to $80 million, excluding depreciation of $2 to $3 million and estimated stock-based compensation of $10 to $12 million. With additional clinical trials planned for 2015, Revance anticipates 2015 non-GAAP research and development expense to be in the range of $52 to $60 million, excluding depreciation of $2 to $3 million and estimated stock-based compensation of $5 to $7 million.

Weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the 2014 fiscal year was 19.4 million. For modeling purposes and assuming no material issuances of equity, we expect 2015 weighted average number of shares outstanding will be approximately 23.5 million to 24.5 million.

RT001 and RT002 Product Candidates

Revance is currently developing two botulinum toxin type A product candidates. RT001 is a topical formulation, which has the potential to be the first commercially available non-injectable dose form. Revance is studying topical RT001 for aesthetic indications, such as crow's feet lines (wrinkles around the eyes) and therapeutic indications such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). RT002 is a novel, injectable formulation of botulinum toxin designed to be more targeted and longer lasting than currently available injectable botulinum toxin products. Revance is studying injectable RT002 for aesthetic indications, such as glabellar (frown) lines and therapeutic uses, such as muscle movement disorders. Both products would have the potential to expand into additional aesthetic and therapeutic indications in the future.
