Incyte (NASDAQ:INCY) today reports 2020 fourth quarter and full year financial results, and provides a status update on the Company's development portfolio.

"Our team achieved many important accomplishments in the past year. Revenue growth was strong, driven by demand for Jakafi® (ruxolitinib), and the launches of Monjuvi® (tafasitamab-cxix) and Pemazyre® (pemigatinib) continue to gain momentum. During 2020, we also announced positive results across multiple late-stage programs, including the pivotal trials of ruxolitinib in chronic GVHD, ruxolitinib cream in atopic dermatitis, parsaclisib in NHL, and retifanlimab in SCAC," stated Hervé Hoppenot, Chief Executive Officer, Incyte. "During 2021, we expect regulatory decisions on seven applications seeking approval, including four in the U.S, two in Europe and one in Japan, and we are working towards the potential U.S. launch of ruxolitinib cream, which we expect to be approved by the FDA in the middle of the year."

Portfolio Updates

MPNs and GVHD – key highlights

Our LIMBER development program, to improve patient outcomes in MPNs and GHVD, is progressing well.

The two Phase 3 trials of ruxolitinib in combination with parsaclisib are both underway, evaluating the combination versus monotherapy ruxolitinib as a first-line therapy for patients with myelofibrosis (MF) (LIMBER-313) and as a therapy for MF patients with a suboptimal response to ruxolitinib monotherapy (LIMBER-304).

Monotherapy trials of INCB57643 (BET) and INCB00928 (ALK2) are underway, and are expected to lead to proof-of-concept combination trials of both agents with ruxolitinib in patients with myelofibrosis. A monotherapy trial of itacitinib (JAK1) in patients previously treated with ruxolitinib is ongoing.

In December 2020, Incyte and Cellenkos announced a development collaboration to investigate the combination of ruxolitinib and CK0804, Cellenkos' cryopreserved CXCR4 enriched, allogeneic, umbilical cord blood-derived T-regulatory cells, in patients with myelofibrosis. In addition, Incyte obtained an exclusive option to acquire sole rights to develop and commercialize CK0804, and genetically-modified variants of CK0804, in benign and malignant hematology indications.

The sNDA seeking approval of Jakafi in steroid-refractory chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) has been submitted, based on data from the successful results of the REACH3 trial, which were presented at ASH 2020.

Other Hematology/Oncology – key highlights

Momentum is strong behind the U.S. launch of Monjuvi (tafasitamab-cxix), with good uptake in both academic and community settings and illustrated by the market share gained in the first several months since launch.

The Phase 3 inMIND trial evaluating tafasitamab plus lenalidomide and rituximab (R-squared) versus R-squared in patients with relapsed or refractory follicular or marginal zone lymphoma is open for recruitment, and the Phase 3 frontMIND trial of tafasitamab plus lenalidomide and R-CHOP versus R-CHOP as a first-line treatment in patients with DLBCL is expected to open in the coming months.

The U.S. launch of Pemazyre (pemigatinib) has been successful and, in January, Incyte announced that the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) issued a positive opinion recommending the conditional marketing authorization of pemigatinib for the treatment of adults with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with an FGFR2 fusion or rearrangement that is relapsed or refractory, after at least one line of systemic therapy.

In December 2020, data from three ongoing Phase 2 studies evaluating parsaclisib for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory follicular (CITADEL-203), marginal zone (CITADEL-204) and mantle cell (CITADEL-205) lymphomas were presented at ASH 2020. Data from the CITADEL program are expected to form the basis of an NDA seeking FDA approval of parsaclisib, which is expected to be submitted in the second half of 2021.

In January 2021, Incyte announced that the FDA had accepted for Priority Review its Biologics License Application (BLA) for retifanlimab as a treatment for previously treated patients with advanced squamous cell anal carcinoma (SCAC) who have progressed following standard platinum-based chemotherapy. The BLA submission was based on data from the Phase 2 POD1UM-202 trial evaluating retifanlimab in previously treated patients with advanced SCAC who have progressed following standard platinum-based chemotherapy; the Phase 3 POD1UM-303 trial in patients with SCAC is underway.

Inflammation and Autoimmunity (IAI) – key highlights

Dermatology

As planned, the NDA seeking approval of ruxolitinib cream as a treatment for patients with atopic dermatitis was submitted to the FDA late in the fourth quarter of 2020, including use of the previously acquired priority review voucher (PRV). The use of the PRV is expected to accelerate the time to an FDA decision.

Recruitment has been completed in both Phase 3 trials in the TRuE-V development program evaluating ruxolitinib cream as a treatment for patients with vitiligo, and topline results are expected to be announced in the first half of 2021. If successful, data from TRuE-V are expected to form the basis of an sNDA seeking approval of ruxolitinib cream as a treatment for patients with vitiligo, which would be submitted as soon as practicable after the FDA decision on the atopic dermatitis NDA.

1. Non-GAAP cost of product revenues excludes the amortization of licensed intellectual property for Iclusig relating to the acquisition of the European business of ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and the cost of stock-based compensation.

2. Non-GAAP research and development expenses exclude the cost of stock-based compensation.

3. Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses exclude the cost of stock-based compensation.

4. Non-GAAP change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration is null.

Research and development expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP research and development expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 increased 30% and 32%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2019 primarily due to our 55% share of the global and U.S. specific development costs for tafasitamab, product supply related costs to support the potential launch of ruxolitinib cream as a treatment for atopic dermatitis in 2021 and an increase in upfront and milestone payments under our collaborative agreements. Excluding the $42 million impact of product supply costs and the upfront and milestone payments, research and development expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 increased approximately 17% compared to the same period in 2019.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, GAAP and Non-GAAP research and development expense increased 92% and 101%, respectively, compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 primarily due to higher upfront and milestone payments under our collaborative agreements which includes upfront consideration of $805 million related to our collaborative agreement with MorphoSys, $120 million of expense related to the purchase of an FDA priority review voucher ("PRV") utilized to accelerate the FDA review of ruxolitinib cream in atopic dermatitis, our 55% share of the global and U.S. specific development costs for tafasitamab, and product supply costs to support the potential launch of ruxolitinib cream. Excluding the $1.02 billion impact of upfront consideration and milestone payments, purchase of the PRV and product supply related costs, research and development expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased approximately 4% compared with the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 increased 23% and 24%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the timing of certain expenses. GAAP and Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased 10% compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 primarily due to an increase in sales and marketing spend to support the commercialization of Pemazyre in the US and to prepare for the potential launch of ruxolitinib cream in the U.S. and pemigatinib and tafasitamab in the EU.

Other Financial Information

Operating income (loss) GAAP and Non-GAAP operating income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 increased compared to the same period in 2019, due to the growth in total revenues exceeding the growth in operating expenses. For the year ended December 31, 2020, Incyte recorded an operating loss compared to operating income for the same period in 2019, on both a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis, primarily due to upfront consideration related to our collaboration with MorphoSys and expense related to the PRV, partially offset by the growth in product and royalty revenues.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities position As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $1.8 billion and $2.1 billion, respectively. The decrease is primarily due to the upfront payment and stock purchase related to our collaborative agreement with MorphoSys and purchase of the PRV, partially offset by the cash flow generated in 2020.

2021 Financial Guidance

Due to the continuing growth and diversification of Incyte's commercial product portfolio, 2021 net product revenue guidance is being provided for Jakafi and in total for other Hematology/Oncology products, which currently include Iclusig in Europe and Pemazyre in the U.S. Guidance does not include revenue from any potential new product launches. However, GAAP and Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expense guidance for 2021 includes costs to support the potential launches of ruxolitinib cream as a treatment for atopic dermatitis in the U.S., pemigatinib as a treatment for cholangiocarcinoma in the EU and Japan, and tafasitamab as a treatment for DLBCL in the EU. The 2021 financial guidance does not include the impact of any potential future strategic transactions.

Pemazyre is a kinase inhibitor indicated in the United States for the treatment of adults with previously treated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) fusion or other rearrangement as detected by an FDA-approved test. This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on overall response rate and duration of response. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial(s).

Pemazyre is a potent, selective, oral inhibitor of FGFR isoforms 1, 2 and 3 which, in preclinical studies, has demonstrated selective pharmacologic activity against cancer cells with FGFR alterations.

Pemazyre is marketed by Incyte in the United States. Incyte has granted Innovent Biologics, Inc. rights to develop and commercialize pemigatinib in hematology and oncology in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Incyte has retained all other rights to develop and commercialize pemigatinib outside of the United States.

Additionally, the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has issued a positive opinion recommending the conditional marketing authorization of pemigatinib for the treatment of adults with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) fusion or rearrangement that is relapsed or refractory, after at least one line of systemic therapy.

Pemazyre is a trademark of Incyte Corporation.

About Iclusig® (ponatinib) tablets

Iclusig targets not only native BCR-ABL but also its isoforms that carry mutations that confer resistance to treatment, including the T315I mutation, which has been associated with resistance to other approved TKIs.

In the EU, Iclusig is approved for the treatment of adult patients with chronic phase, accelerated phase or blast phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who are resistant to dasatinib or nilotinib; who are intolerant to dasatinib or nilotinib and for whom subsequent treatment with imatinib is not clinically appropriate; or who have the T315I mutation, or the treatment of adult patients with Philadelphia-chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL) who are resistant to dasatinib; who are intolerant to dasatinib and for whom subsequent treatment with imatinib is not clinically appropriate; or who have the T315I mutation.

Incyte has an exclusive license from ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc., since acquired by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, to develop and commercialize Iclusig in the European Union and 22 other countries, including Switzerland, Norway, Turkey, Israel and Russia.
