Revance Therapeutics Releases Second Quarter 2015 Results

NEWARK, Calif., Aug. 6, 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 results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Recent Pipeline Highlights

  • Topical RT001 – Aesthetic Indication for the Treatment of Lateral Canthal (Crow's Feet) Lines
    Announced plans to initiate a US Phase 3 pivotal study for the treatment of crow's feet lines using investigational drug product candidate RT001, a topical gel formulation of botulinum toxin type A.
  • Topical RT001 – Therapeutic Indication for the Treatment of Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
    Announced plans to commence a US Phase 2 study for topical RT001 for the treatment of excessive sweating.
  • Injectable RT002 – Therapeutic Indication for Cervical Dystonia
    Filed an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for RT002, an injectable formulation of botulinum toxin type A, for the treatment of cervical dystonia, a muscle movement disorder.
  • Injectable RT002 – Aesthetic Indication for the Treatment of Glabellar (Frown) Lines
    BELMONT Phase 2 active comparator trial for the company's injectable RT002 investigational drug product candidate to treat frown lines was fully enrolled and is on schedule to report interim results before year end 2015.

"The first half of 2015 has been a pivotal and exciting time for Revance. Following the achievement of numerous milestones, we are moving forward with clinical trials in four separate indications for our investigational drug product candidates topical RT001 and injectable RT002," said Dan Browne, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the second quarter, we completed enrollment in our RT002 BELMONT trial and, before year end, we expect to report on the safety, efficacy and 24-week (six-month) duration results for three doses of RT002 compared to BOTOX® Cosmetic. In the third quarter, we expect to initiate a US Phase 2 dose-escalating study to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of RT002 for the treatment of cervical dystonia and plan to report interim data before the end of 2015.

"In June, we made the decision to move ahead with two important trials for topical RT001 in the United States. We are now preparing and conducting investigator trainings for both our Phase 3 crow's feet lines and Phase 2 hyperhidrosis studies and plan to announce the initiation of the studies in the third quarter of this year. We currently expect to report interim data from the Phase 2 hyperhidrosis study before the end of this year and results from the Phase 3 crow's feet lines study in the first half of 2016."

Summary Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were $10.3 million and $19.6 million, respectively, compared to $8.1 million and $15.7 million for the same periods in 2014, respectively. The increase in research and development expenses is primarily attributable to increased personnel costs and expenditures related to our ongoing clinical trials.

General and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were $6.4 million and $12.4 million, respectively, compared to $4.9 million and $9.0 million for the same periods in 2014, respectively. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to increased personnel costs, legal matters, and administrative activities to support the operation of a public company.

Total operating expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were $16.7 million and $31.9 million, respectively, compared to $13.0 million and $24.6 million for the same periods in 2014, respectively. Stock-based compensation for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $2.4 million and $4.7 million, respectively. When excluding depreciation and stock-based compensation, total operating expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were $13.7 million and $26.1 million, respectively.

Net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $16.8 million and $32.2 million, respectively, compared to $13.3 million and $34.7 million for the same periods in 2014, respectively. Interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively. Upon completion of the IPO in February 2014, Revance recorded non-cash interest expense, including loss on debt extinguishment, of $9.6 million in connection with the settlement of previously outstanding convertible notes.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments as of June 30, 2015 were $149.4 million.

2015 Financial Outlook

Revance updated its 2015 full-year cash burn guidance from its prior guidance last provided on May 13, 2015. The company now expects cash burn for 2015 to be in the range of $66 to $76 million, primarily due to the financial impact of the second quarter 2015 sale and leaseback transaction on capital equipment. This compares to prior cash burn guidance of $74 to $84 million.

Revance reaffirms its 2015 full-year guidance for total non-GAAP operating expense and non-GAAP research and development expense. Revance 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 to initiate during the second half of 2015, the company 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 quarter ended June 30, 2015 was 23.6 million. Revance expects 2015 weighted-average number of shares outstanding to be approximately 23.5 million to 24.5 million. All non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this document are reconciled to GAAP in the attached tables.

RT001 and RT002 Product Candidates

Revance is currently developing two botulinum toxin type A investigational drug product candidates. RT001 is a topical formulation, which has the potential to be the first commercially available non-injectable dose form of botulinum toxin type A. 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 type A 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 (cervical dystonia and upper limb spasticity). Both products would have the potential to expand into additional aesthetic and therapeutic indications in the future.
