(1) The fourth-quarter and full-year 2016 net losses were primarily impacted by the impairment of in-process research and development and other wind- down costs and charges related to the discontinuation of ACTIMMUNE development for Friedreich’s ataxia and acquisition-related costs primarily related to the acquisition of Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp.
(2) On Sept. 26, 2016, Horizon Pharma agreed to pay Express Scripts $65 million as part of a litigation settlement, which was recorded as a one-time reduction to GAAP net sales for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016, in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The exclusion of the $65 million settlement from GAAP net sales is the only adjustment reflected in year-to-date 2016 non-GAAP adjusted net sales.

Company Highlights

  • Fourth-quarter 2016 net sales were $310.3 million, an increase of 27 percent compared to the fourth-quarter of 2015, driven by growth across each of the Company’s business units: orphan, rheumatology and primary care.
  • Medicines for rare diseases, which include RAVICTI®, PROCYSBI®, ACTIMMUNE®, KRYSTEXXA®, BUPHENYL® and QUINSAIR™ represented 43 percent of combined adjusted non-GAAP net sales for the full-year 2016. This includes full-year 2016 PROCYSBI net sales of $128.6 million and QUINSAIR net sales of $3.9 million on a combined and adjusted basis.
  • In December 2016, the Company secured formulary status with an additional pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) resulting in contracts with three leading pharmacy benefit managers to improve patient access and long-term durability for the Company’s clinically differentiated primary care medicines.
  • In November 2016, the Company presented data on both KRYSTEXXA and RAYOS® at the American College of Rheumatology meeting. The Company expects to continue to expand the awareness of KRYSTEXXA as an important treatment option for refractory chronic gout patients.
  • On October 25, 2016, Horizon Pharma completed the acquisition of Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp., which was a significant step in advancing the Company’s strategy to expand its rare disease business with the addition of two orphan medicines, PROCYSBI and QUINSAIR.

  • Orphan Business Unit: Fourth-quarter orphan business unit net sales increased 29 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, and full-year 2016 net sales increased 44 percent compared to the full year of 2015.

    RAVICTI net sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $32.9 million. RAVICTI net sales for the second half of 2016 were $75.1 million, representing an increase of 11 percent over the same period in 2015. The Company is awaiting approval for its supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) submitted on June 29, 2016, with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for RAVICTI to expand the age range for chronic management of urea cycle disorders (UCDs) in patients to two months of age and older from two years of age and older. RAVICTI is also expected to launch in Europe in 2017 in partnership with Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (SOBI).

    ACTIMMUNE net sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $24.2 million, relatively flat sequentially versus the third quarter of 2016. The Company has evolved its strategy to establish the role of ACTIMMUNE in a broader range of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) patients and anticipates ACTIMMUNE returning to growth in 2017.

    On February 23, 2017, at the American Society for Clinical Oncology - Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer meeting, investigators from Fox Chase Cancer Center presented safety data from the first two cohorts of the Phase 1 dose escalation trial evaluating ACTIMMUNE as part of a combination therapy in solid tumors for certain cancers. The preliminary data showed that combination therapy of ACTIMMUNE with nivolumab, a PD-1 inhibitor, was safe and well-tolerated in the first two cohorts. The data also showed statistically significant activation of certain monocytes, or white blood cells in peripheral blood, which demonstrates that ACTIMMUNE is having the desired effect of stimulating immune cells. These are early results, and the third cohort of patients is still under study. Additionally, the Company has received interest in studying ACTIMMUNE in oncology from a number of academic and oncologic institutions and is evaluating additional investigator-initiated trials that could begin in 2017.

    On October 25, 2016, the Company completed the acquisition of Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp., adding two orphan medicines to its orphan business unit, PROCYSBI for the treatment of nephropathic cystinosis, a rare metabolic disorder, and QUINSAIR for the management of chronic pulmonary infections for patients with cystic fibrosis. PROCYSBI net sales for the partial fourth quarter of 2016 were $25.3 million. For the full-year 2016, PROCYSBI total sales were $128.6 million on a combined and adjusted basis, which represented growth of 36 percent, compared to Raptor’s sales of PROCYSBI during the full-year 2015.
  • Rheumatology Business Unit: KRYSTEXXA sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $29.5 million, an increase of 16 percent sequentially compared to the third quarter of 2016. The Company has invested in additional commercial support, education and outreach efforts to continue to drive long-term growth of this medicine. This additional investment and improved commercial strategy has driven a steady increase in average monthly KRYSTEXXA vials and net sales since acquiring the medicine in January of 2016. RAYOS sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $11.3 million, an increase of 1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • Primary Care Business Unit: Total sales for the primary care business unit increased 11 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, driven by strong performance of PENNSAID 2%®. Sales of PENNSAID 2%, DUEXIS® and VIMOVO® in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $96.6 million, $50.9 million and $31.6 million, respectively.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA are used and provided by Horizon Pharma as non-GAAP financial measures. Horizon Pharma provides certain other financial measures such as non-GAAP adjusted net sales and net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross profit ratio, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP tax rate, non-GAAP operating cash flow and PROCYSBI and QUINSAIR net sales on a combined and adjusted basis, each of which include adjustments to GAAP figures. These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information on Horizon Pharma’s performance, operations, expenses, profitability and cash flows. Adjustments to Horizon Pharma's GAAP figures as well as EBITDA exclude acquisition-related expenses, charges related to the discontinuation of ACTIMMUNE development for Friedreich’s ataxia, an upfront fee for a license of a patent, a litigation settlement, loss on debt extinguishment and loss on sale of long-term investments, as well as non-cash items such as share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, royalty accretion, non-cash interest expense, intangible and other non-current asset impairment charges, and other non-cash adjustments. Certain other special items or substantive events may also be included in the non-GAAP adjustments periodically when their magnitude is significant within the periods incurred. Horizon maintains an established non-GAAP cost policy that guides the determination of what costs will be excluded in non-GAAP measures. Horizon believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP figures, can enhance an overall understanding of Horizon's financial and operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are included with the intent of providing investors with a more complete understanding of the Company’s historical and expected 2017 financial results and trends and to facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the indicators Horizon's management uses for planning and forecasting purposes and measuring the Company's performance. For example, adjusted EBITDA is used by Horizon as one measure of management performance under certain incentive compensation arrangements. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Horizon Pharma has not provided a reconciliation of its full-year or quarterly 2017 adjusted EBITDA outlook to an expected net income (loss) outlook because certain items such as acquisition-related expenses and share-based compensation that are a component of net income (loss) cannot be reasonably projected due to the significant impact of changes in Horizon Pharma's stock price, the variability associated with the size or timing of acquisitions and other factors. These components of net income (loss) could significantly impact Horizon Pharma’s actual net income (loss).
