Third QuarterINGREZZA Net Product Sales Highlights:

  • INGREZZA third quarter 2023 net product sales were $486 million and grew 29% vs. the third quarter 2022 driven by prescription demand
  • Continued high level of new patient scripts generated in the third quarter of 2023

Third Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Third quarter 2023 GAAP net income and earnings per share of $83 million and $0.82, respectively, compared with $69 million and $0.69, respectively, for third quarter 2022
  • Third quarter 2023 non-GAAP net income and earnings per share of $156 million and $1.54, respectively, compared with $107 million and $1.08, respectively, for third quarter 2022
  • Differences in third quarter 2023 GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses compared with third quarter 2022 driven by:
    • Increased R&D expense in support of an expanded and advancing clinical portfolio including preclinical investments in VMAT2, crinecerfont, and our muscarinic compounds
    • Increased SG&A expense primarily due to ongoing commercial initiatives supporting INGREZZA growth including the expanded indication to treat chorea associated with Huntington's disease
  • At September 30, 2023, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of approximately $1.5 billion

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results can be found in Table 3 and Table 4 at the end of this earnings release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the financial results and financial guidance that are provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), this press release also contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP R&D expense, non-GAAP SG&A expense, and non-GAAP net income and net income per share. When preparing the non-GAAP financial results and guidance, the Company excludes certain GAAP items that management does not consider to be normal, including recurring cash operating expenses that might not meet the definition of unusual or non-recurring items. In particular, these non-GAAP financial measures exclude: non-cash stock-based compensation expense, loss on extinguishment of convertible senior notes, non-cash interest expense related to convertible debt, non-cash amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets, acquisition and integration costs, changes in fair value of equity security investments, changes in foreign currency exchange rates and certain adjustments to income tax expense. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP as management believes these non-GAAP financial measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company's business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results and provide additional information regarding the Company's financial position. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures to establish budgets and operational goals that are communicated internally and externally and to manage the Company's business and evaluate its performance. The Company provides guidance regarding combined R&D and SG&A expenses on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of these GAAP financial results to non-GAAP financial results is included in the attached financial information.

Forward-Looking Statements
