Revance Therapeutics Releases First Quarter 2014 Financial Results(May 13, 2014)
NEWARK, Calif., May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:RVNC), today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Revance's operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $11.5 million. Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2014 were $87.9 million.
Recent Accomplishments and Progress Towards Milestones
Reported positive results from the RT002 (injectable botulinum toxin type A) Phase 1/2 study for the treatment of glabellar (frown) lines, achieving a median duration of 7.3 month in the final cohort;
Initiated the RT001 (topical gel botulinum toxin type A) U.S. Phase 3 open-label long-term safety study for the treatment of lateral canthal (crow's feet) lines with interim data expected in 2015;
Addition of Mark A. Prygocki, former president of Medicis Pharmaceutical Corporation, to the Board of Directors as the Chair of our Audit Committee; and
Planning to report results from the RT001 U.S. Phase 3 pivotal study for the treatment of crow's feet lines in the second half of 2014.
"Since our successful IPO in the first quarter, we have been focused on executing the clinical programs for our topical and injectable botulinum toxin products," said President and Chief Executive Officer, Dan Browne. "In the first quarter we started the RT001 U.S. Phase 3 open label safety study for our lead indication. In late April we reported positive results from our RT002 Phase 1/2 study for the treatment of frown lines. Both product candidates utilize our proprietary TransMTS® technology, which has multiple aesthetic and therapeutic applications."
Mr. Browne continued, "This has been a remarkably productive year so far and we look forward to reporting RT001 U.S. Phase 3 pivotal study results in the second half of 2014. Based on operational and clinical initiatives underway, we're confident of our ability to execute on our strategy to successfully complete our clinical programs and gain regulatory approval to commercialize RT001 and RT002."
First Quarter Financial Results
Net loss applicable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $21.4 million, or net loss of $1.93 per basic and diluted share. This compares with basic and diluted net income applicable to common stockholders of $5.2 million and $13.3 million, or net income of $25.54 and $21.00 per basic and diluted share, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Upon Revance's IPO, the principal and interest under Revance's previously outstanding convertible notes (the "2013 Notes") converted to 1,637,846 shares of common stock. In connection with the settlement of the 2013 Notes, Revance recorded non-cash interest expense, including loss on extinguishment, of $9.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2014. Revance expects its interest expense to substantially decrease in future periods.
Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased by $0.1 million to $0.2 million, from $0.1 million in the 2013 period. The increase is due to the recognition of licensing revenue pursuant to a technology evaluation agreement with The Procter & Gamble Company.
Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $11.6 million, compared with $9.8 million for the 2013 period. Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were relatively unchanged at $7.6 million, compared to the same period in 2013, primarily due to increased regulatory affairs, quality control testing, and manufacturing facility costs, which offset lower clinical trial expense. Sales, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased by $1.9 million to $4.1 million, compared to the same period in 2013, primarily due to the increased cost of operating as a public company in 2014. These costs include higher professional fees, marketing expenses, personnel costs, stock-based compensation, and insurance costs.
Cash used in operations was $21.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and included a payment of $7.1 million under Revance's settlement agreement with Medicis. As of March 31, 2014, Revance had cash and cash equivalents of $87.9 million.
2014 Financial Outlook
Revance reaffirms its 2014 full-year guidance. Revance anticipates 2014 operating expenses excluding amortization, depreciation and stock-based compensation will be in the range of $55 million to $60 million. Revance expects its 2014 cash burn to be in the range of $75 million to $85 million. Cash burn in 2014 includes $7.1 million paid under the settlement agreement with Medicis and debt service of $10 million to $11 million. Based on current projections, Revance believes its existing cash and cash equivalents will allow it to fund its operating plan through at least the next 15 months.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Revance has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Revance is unable to reconcile non-GAAP operating expense guidance to GAAP as the amount of future stock-based compensation expense and depreciation and amortization costs cannot be estimated at this time. Revance excludes stock-based compensation expense and depreciation and amortization costs because management believes the exclusion of these items is helpful to investors to evaluate Revance's recurring operational performance.

About Revance Therapeutics, Inc.
Revance is a specialty biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing and commercialization of novel botulinum toxin products for multiple aesthetic and therapeutic applications. Revance is leveraging its proprietary portfolio of botulinum toxin compounds combined with its patented TransMTS® peptide delivery system to address unmet needs in the large and growing aesthetic and therapeutic botulinum toxin market. Revance's proprietary TranMTS® technology enables transcutaneous delivery of botulinum toxin A, eliminating the need for injections. Revance's lead product candidate, RT001, is a topical formulation of botulinum toxin type A, which has the potential to be the first commercially-available non-injectable dose form. RT001 is being evaluated in a broad clinical program that includes aesthetic indications such as crow's feet lines (wrinkles around the eyes) and therapeutic indications such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and migraine headache. Revance's second product candidate is RT002, a novel injectable formulation of botulinum toxin type A designed to be more targeted and longer lasting than currently available botulinum toxin injectable products.
