DUBLIN, May 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc (Nasdaq: JAZZ) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2023, affirmed 2023 financial guidance and provided business updates.
"This quarter, we once again delivered strong commercial results, advanced our efforts to unlock the tremendous potential of our pipeline and built on our record of driving operational excellence. On the commercial front, key products launched over the past several years are demonstrating impressive and durable performance with Xywav annualizing at more than $1 billion and our oncology therapeutic area approaching $1 billion in annual revenue, driven by Rylaze and Zepzelca®. Adoption of low-sodium Xywav continues to grow across both narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia (IH), and we expect Xywav to remain the oxybate of choice in 2023. We remain confident in the blockbuster potential of Epidiolex/Epidyolex® and its significant additional growth opportunities, and we look forward to continued strong in-person engagement with customers globally," said Bruce Cozadd, chairman and chief executive officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals. "Our strong execution and robust pipeline position us well to achieve Vision 2025 and create meaningful value for our shareholders."
"Our enhanced pipeline is positioned to deliver at least three late-stage data readouts by the end of 2024, including JZP150 in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), suvecaltamide in essential tremor (ET) and zanidatamab in first-line gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma (1L GEA)," said Rob Iannone, M.D., M.S.C.E., executive vice president, global head of research and development of Jazz Pharmaceuticals. "These late-stage trials are exploring new therapies with the potential to transform the lives of patients affected by diseases where substantial unmet medical need remains."

Pipeline positioned to deliver at least three late-stage data readouts by the end of 2024, including JZP150 in PTSD, suvecaltamide in ET and zanidatamab in 1L GEA.
The Company will host a KOL investor webcast to review the HERIZON-BTC-01 trial data, which will be presented at the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting.
1Q23 total revenues increased 10% to $892.8 million compared to 1Q22.
On track to achieve full year revenue expectations; full year financial guidance affirmed.
Business Updates
Key Commercial Products
Total revenues for the combined oxybate business, including royalties from a high-sodium oxybate authorized generic (AG) in 1Q23, increased 6% to $458.0 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
Average active Jazz oxybate patients on therapy was approximately 17,400 in 1Q23, an increase of 5% compared to the same period in 2022.
Xywav (calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium oxybates) oral solution:
Xywav net product sales increased 49% to $277.8 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
Xywav is the Company's largest product by net product sales, annualizing at more than $1 billion, as a result of continued adoption in both narcolepsy and IH.
There were approximately 11,050 active Xywav patients exiting 1Q23.
There were approximately 9,050 narcolepsy patients taking Xywav exiting 1Q23.
The benefits of reducing sodium intake resonate with patients and prescribers as the large majority of new-to-oxybate narcolepsy patients continue to be prescribed Xywav.
FDA continues to recognize seven years of Orphan Drug Exclusivity (ODE), through July 2027, for Xywav in narcolepsy. FDA published its summary of clinical superiority findings stating that "Xywav is clinically superior to Xyrem by means of greater safety because Xywav provides a greatly reduced chronic sodium burden compared to Xyrem." Further, FDA stated that "the differences in the sodium content of the two products at the recommended doses will be clinically meaningful in reducing cardiovascular morbidity in a substantial proportion of patients for whom the drug is indicated." For clarity, the authorized generics of Xyrem contain the exact same drug product as branded Xyrem.
FDA has also recognized that the difference in sodium content between Xywav and Lumryz is likely to be clinically meaningful in all patients with narcolepsy and that Xywav is safer than Lumryz in all such patients. Lumryz is a branded, fixed-dose, high-sodium oxybate that has the same sodium content as Xyrem.
Xywav is the only approved oxybate therapy that does not carry a warning and precaution related to high sodium intake.
There were approximately 2,000 IH patients taking Xywav exiting 1Q23.
Recent Jazz survey of sleep specialists indicates 70% anticipate increasing their prescribing of Xywav for IH over the next six months.
Xywav is the first and only treatment approved by FDA to treat the full condition of IH.
FDA recognized ODE for IH extending regulatory exclusivity to August 2028.
Xyrem (sodium oxybate) oral solution:
Xyrem net product sales decreased 28% to $178.1 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, reflecting the continued adoption of Xywav by patients with narcolepsy and the launch of a high-sodium oxybate AG in January 2023.
Royalties from high-sodium oxybate AG were $2.1 million in 1Q23. Due to the royalty structures within the AG agreements, we expect the royalties from AG to be significantly higher in the second half of 2023 relative to the first half.
Epidiolex/
Epidiolex/Epidyolex net product sales increased 20% to $188.9 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
A pivotal Phase 3 trial of Epidyolex for Dravet syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and tuberous sclerosis complex in Japan is enrolling patients.
Epidiolex/Epidyolex global prescriber base is increasing with multiple launches expected outside of the U.S. this year.
Additional Epidiolex growth opportunities underscored by BECOME survey's caregiver reported outcomes beyond seizure control, and compelling data for use of Epidiolex in combination with clobazam.
Epidyolex is launched and reimbursed in all five key European markets: United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain and France.
Rylaze (asparaginase erwinia chrysanthemi (recombinant)-rywn):
Rylaze net product sales increased 58% to $85.9 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
Continued strong demand for Rylaze reflects the significant unmet patient need for a high-quality, reliable supply of Erwinia asparaginase for patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
In May 2022, the Company completed the Marketing Authorization Application submission to European Medicines Agency for a Monday/Wednesday/Friday dosing schedule and intramuscular and intravenous administration for JZP458 (approved as Rylaze in the U.S.) with potential for approval in 2023.
The Company is also continuing to evaluate patient need in other geographies.
Zepzelca (lurbinectedin):
Zepzelca net product sales increased 13% to $67.2 million in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
Zepzelca is the treatment of choice in second-line (2L) small cell lung cancer (SCLC) setting.
Zepzelca development program highlights:
The EMERGE-201 Phase 2 basket trial evaluating Zepzelca as monotherapy in select relapsed/refractory solid tumors is ongoing.
Phase 3 trial in partnership with F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd (Roche) to evaluate 1L use of Zepzelca in combination with Tecentriq® (atezolizumab), compared to Tecentriq alone, as maintenance therapy in patients with extensive-stage SCLC after induction chemotherapy is ongoing. The Company expects complete enrollment in the trial by the end of 2023.
The Company's partner, PharmaMar, is conducting the Phase 3 confirmatory trial, LAGOON, in 2L SCLC. If positive, this trial could confirm the benefit of Zepzelca in the treatment of SCLC when patients progress following 1L treatment with a platinum-based regimen.
Key Pipeline Highlights
Zanidatamab is a bispecific antibody that can simultaneously bind two non-overlapping epitopes of HER2, known as biparatopic binding. This unique design results in multiple mechanisms of action including dual HER2 signal blockade, increased binding and removal of HER2 protein from the cell surface, and potent effector function leading to encouraging antitumor activity in patients.
Initial focus is in biliary tract cancers (BTC) and GEA with potential to transform the current standard of care in multiple HER2-expressing cancersHER2-expressing cancers.
Positive top-line data from the pivotal HERIZON-BTC-01 clinical trial has the potential to support regulatory submissions for zanidatamab as a monotherapy in patients with previously treated HER2-amplifed and expressing BTC.
Data from the HERIZON-BTC-01 clinical trial will be presented at the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting on Friday, June 2, 2023; the Company will host an investor webcast with Dr. Shubham Pant, M.D., MBBS, Professor in the Department of Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology with a joint appointment in the Department of the Investigational Cancer Therapeutics at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer CenterCancer Center, to review the BTC data.
In January 2023, the Company and Zymeworks announced the first overall survival data of 84% at 18 months from a Phase 2 trial of zanidatamab in combination with chemotherapy in 1L patients with HER2-expressing metastatic GEAHER2-expressing metastatic GEA.
The pivotal trial, HERIZON-GEA-01, evaluating zanidatamab in 1L GEA is ongoing and top-line data are expected in 2024.
JZP150, a selective fatty acid amide hydrolase, or FAAH, inhibitor, is in clinical development for the potential treatment of PTSD.
Patient enrollment is ongoing in a Phase 2 trial and top-line data readout is anticipated in late 2023.
The Company received Fast Track Designation for JZP150 development in PTSD from FDA, underscoring the significant unmet medical needs of patients.
Suvecaltamide, a highly selective and state dependent modulator of T-type calcium channels, is in clinical development for the treatment of ET and Parkinson's disease tremor.
Patient enrollment is ongoing in the Phase 2b ET trial and top-line data readout is anticipated in 1H24.
A Phase 2 trial in patients with Parkinson's disease tremor is ongoing.
JZP441, is a potent, highly selective oral orexin-2 receptor agonistorexin-2 receptor agonist designed to activate orexin signaling with the potential to be applicable in the treatment of narcolepsy, IH and other sleep disorders.
A Phase 1 development program to evaluate safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of JZP441 in sleep-deprived healthy volunteers is ongoing.
The Company expects initial proof of concept in healthy volunteers in 2023.
A Phase 1 trial evaluating JZP815 in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors with MAPK pathway alterations is ongoing.
The pan-RAF inhibitor program is part of a novel class of next-generation precision oncology therapies that has the potential to benefit cancer patients with high unmet needs in multiple different solid tumors.
JZP898 is an engineered IFNα cytokine pro-drug that is activated specifically within the tumor microenvironment where it can stimulate IFNα receptors on cancer-fighting immune effector cells.
The Company expects to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for JZP898 in the U.S. this year.
Financial Highlights
GAAP net income for 1Q23 was $69.4 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, compared to $1.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for 1Q22.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income for 1Q23 was $285.3 million, or $3.95 per diluted share, compared to $261.9 million, or $3.73 per diluted share, for 1Q22.
Reconciliations of applicable GAAP reported to non-GAAP adjusted information are included at the end of this press release.
Total Revenues
Total revenues increased 10% in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022.
Total neuroscience revenue, including high-sodium oxybate AG royalty revenue, was $654.0 million in 1Q23 compared to $612.1 million in 1Q22. Neuroscience net product sales in 1Q23 increased 7% to $651.9 million compared to the same period in 2022 primarily driven by increased Xywav and Epidiolex/Epidyolex net product sales, partially offset by the decline in Xyrem revenues, reflecting the continued strong adoption of Xywav by patients with narcolepsy and the launch of a high-sodium oxybate AG in January 2023. High-sodium oxybate AG royalty revenue relates to royalty revenue received from Hikma Pharmaceuticals plc on net sales of a high-sodium oxybate AG product.
Oncology net product sales in 1Q23 increased 16% to $228.9 million compared to the same period in 2022 primarily driven by the continued growth in Rylaze product sales, which increased 58% to $86.0 million.
Operating Expenses and Effective Tax Rate
Changes in operating expenses in 1Q23 over the prior year period are primarily due to the following:
Cost of product sales increased in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, primarily due to changes in product mix.
Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, on a GAAP basis, decreased in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022 primarily due to transaction and integration expenses related to the acquisition of GW Pharmaceuticals plc (GW) and Sunosi® (solriamfetol) related spend incurred in 1Q22, partially offset by increased investment in our priority programs. SG&A expenses, on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, were in line with the same period in 2022.
Research and development (R&D) expenses increased in 1Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, primarily due to the inclusion of costs related to clinical programs for zanidatamab, as well as JZP815, JZP898 and JZP441, offset by a decrease in costs related to JZP458.
Cash Flow and Balance Sheet
As of March 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents were $1.2 billion, and the outstanding principal balance of the Company's long-term debt was $5.8 billion. In addition, the Company had undrawn borrowing capacity under a revolving credit facility of $500 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company generated $320.7 million of cash from operations which is an increase of $111.7 million as compared to the same period in 2022, reflecting strong business performance and continued financial discipline.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Jazz Pharmaceuticals' financial results and guidance presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses certain non-GAAP (also referred to as adjusted or non-GAAP adjusted) financial measures in this press release and the accompanying tables. In particular, the Company presents non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components, as well as certain non-GAAP adjusted financial measures derived therefrom, including non-GAAP adjusted gross margin percentage and non-GAAP adjusted effective tax rate. Non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components exclude from GAAP reported net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components certain items, as detailed in the reconciliation tables that follow, and in the case of non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure), adjust for the income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. In this regard, the components of non-GAAP adjusted net income, including non-GAAP adjusted cost of product sales, SG&A expenses and R&D expenses, are income statement line items prepared on the same basis as, and therefore components of, the overall non-GAAP adjusted net income measure.
The Company believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors and analysts and that each of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the Company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, can enhance investors' and analysts' ability to meaningfully compare the Company's results from period to period, to its forward-looking guidance, and to identify operating trends in the Company's business. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are regularly used by investors and analysts to model and track the Company's financial performance. Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management also regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the Company's business and to make operating decisions, and compensation of executives is based in part on certain of these non-GAAP financial measures. Because these non-GAAP financial measures are important internal measurements for Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management, the Company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and analysts since these measures allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics the Company uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures; should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP; have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles in the reconciliation tables that follow. In addition, from time to time in the future there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; and the Company has ceased, and may in the future cease, to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, the Company may determine to modify the nature of its adjustments to arrive at its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measures as used by Jazz Pharmaceuticals in this press release and the accompanying tables have limits in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
