Revance Releases Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

- Cash and investments of $185.5 million as of December 31, 2016 -

NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC), a biotechnology company developing botulinum toxin products for use in aesthetic and therapeutic indications, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

Recent Highlights and Upcoming Milestones

"The fourth quarter was highly productive for Revance. We announced compelling subject response rates and duration of effect interim data reported from our Phase 2 study for RT002 in cervical dystonia, plus the initiation of patient enrollment for two additional clinical programs evaluating RT002 injectable," said Dan Browne, President and Chief Executive Officer at Revance. "We are actively enrolling patients in clinical trials and expect a news-rich 2017. Our clinical programs are designed to further demonstrate that RT002 injectable has potential to be the first neuromodulator to provide long duration and increased response rates. Furthermore, we believe RT002 injectable has the potential to provide patients with a significant improvement in quality of life, particularly in treating debilitating conditions such as cervical dystonia and plantar fasciitis."

Summary Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 were $12.5 million and $50.4 million, respectively, compared to $15.0 million and $47.5 million for the same periods in 2015, respectively. The decrease in research and development expenses for the quarter is primarily attributable to a decrease in preclinical trial activities and outside services offset by increased personnel costs. The increase in research and development expenses for the annual period is primarily attributed to personnel costs, manufacturing activities, preclinical and clinical studies for RT002 injectable, and the acquisition of botulinum toxin-related patents and patent applications. These increases were offset primarily by a decrease in clinical trial activities for RT001 topical.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 were $7.1 million and $29.1 million, respectively, compared to $6.9 million and $25.1 million for the same periods in 2015, respectively. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to increased costs related to personnel, marketing activities, and legal matters, offset by a decrease in outside services.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 were $26.7 million and $88.5 million, respectively, compared to $21.9 million and $72.6 million for the same periods in 2015, respectively. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 include non-cash impairment charges related to RT001 topical manufacturing equipment of $7.1 million and $9.1 million, respectively. Stock-based compensation for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 was $3.0 million and $12.0 million, respectively. When excluding depreciation and stock-based compensation, total operating expenses for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 were $23.4 million and $75.1 million, respectively.

Net loss for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016 was $26.8 million and $89.3 million, respectively, compared to $22.1 million and $73.5 million for the same periods in 2015, respectively.

Cash and investments as of December 31, 2016 were $185.5 million.

2017 Financial Outlook

Revance reiterates its financial guidance provided in January 2017. Revance expects cash burn for 2017 to be in the range of $102 to $112 million. Revance expects 2017 GAAP operating expense to be in the range of $108 to $119 million, which when excluding depreciation of $1 to $2 million and estimated stock-based compensation of $13 to $15 million, results in projected 2017 non-GAAP operating expense of $94 to $102 million. With three clinical programs underway, Revance anticipates 2017 GAAP research and development expense to be in the range of $75 to $83 million, which when excluding depreciation of $1 to $2 million and estimated stock-based compensation of $5 to $6 million, results in projected 2017 non-GAAP research and development expense of $69 to $75 million.
