May 07, 2020

- Conference call and webcast today at 4:30 p.m. ET -

NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2020-- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVNC), a biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, including its next-generation neuromodulator product, DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and provided a corporate update.

Key First Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Updates

  • BLA for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in Glabellar Lines Accepted by FDA, PDUFA Date Announced. In February, the company received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notification that its Biologics License Application (BLA) for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines was accepted for review. Revance has been given a target action date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) of November 25, 2020.
  • Signed Exclusive U.S. Distribution Agreement for FDA-Approved TEOXANE Dermal Fillers. In January, Revance entered into a distribution agreement with Teoxane SA, making Revance the exclusive commercialization partner of the Swiss company’s modern and innovative Resilient Hyaluronic Acid® (RHA®) line of dermal fillers in the U.S., the first and only range of FDA-approved dermal fillers indicated for the correction of dynamic facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Provided Corporate Update in Response to COVID-19. Consistent with its COVID-19 update on March 26, Revance’s BLA for glabellar lines remains on track, as do topline data readouts from the ASPEN-1 Phase 3 trial in cervical dystonia and Phase 2 trial in plantar fasciitis, which will occur in the second half of 2020. Additionally, the company is on schedule for second quarter 2020 readouts from its forehead lines and crow’s feet open-label Phase 2 studies. COVID-19 has, however, caused Revance to adjust the launch of its RHA® dermal filler line, and the associated hiring of field representatives, by one quarter, due to the temporary closure of Teoxane’s Swiss manufacturing facility. Additionally, the company announced a pause in enrollment of the Revance’s JUNIPER Phase 2 trial for adult upper limb spasticity. Despite these changes, the company reiterated its 2020 financial guidance, with operating expenses likely to come in at the lower end of guidance, as delayed revenue is offset by the shift in sales force hires.
  • Closed Public Offering of Common Stock and Private Offering of Convertible Senior Notes - In January, Revance closed its underwritten public offering of 7,475,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $17.00 per share. The gross proceeds to the company from the offering, before deducting the underwriters’ discounts, commissions and other offering expenses, were approximately $127.1 million. In February, Revance closed its offering of $287.5 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2027 in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

“First of all, I would like to sincerely thank all of those who are currently on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, I would also like to recognize my Revance colleagues for their adaptability and resilience during these unprecedented times,” said Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As organizations adjust to the new world shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, Revance does so from a position of financial, operational and product portfolio strength. We remain excited about the commercial potential for our RHA® dermal fillers in the U.S., which we now plan to launch in the third quarter of 2020, followed by DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in glabellar lines, after an anticipated FDA approval on November 25. We also look forward to announcing the topline results from our Phase 3 trial in cervical dystonia and Phase 2 trial in plantar fasciitis in the second half. Despite the challenges that have resulted from the current pandemic, Revance remains on track to deliver on our key 2020 value drivers as we move into the back half of the year.”

Financial Highlights

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2020 were $511.3 million.

Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was $58 thousand compared to $278 thousand for the same period in 2019.

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 were $39.8 million compared to $24.0 million for the same period in 2019. The change in research and development expenses is primarily due to a non-cash acquisition charge of $11.2 million allocated to in-process research and development from the TEOXANE distribution agreement.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter 2020 were $21.2 million compared to $12.9 million for the same period in 2019.

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 were $61.0 million compared to $36.9 million for the same period in 2019. Stock-based compensation for the first quarter was $6.5 million. When excluding depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development, total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 were $42.6 million.

Net loss for the first quarter was $61.9 million compared to $35.3 million for the same period in 2019.

2020 Financial Outlook

Based on the impact of the COVID-19 situation on the company’s plans and operations, Revance expects 2020 U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) operating expense to be at the lower end of the range of $270 to $280 million and non-GAAP operating expense, which excludes depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs, to be at the lower end of the range of $220 to $230 million driven by RHA® and DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection launch activities. With multiple clinical programs underway, along with regulatory and pre-commercial manufacturing activities, Revance anticipates 2020 non-GAAP research and development expense to be $95 to $100 million. With current cash and equivalents, management projects that the company is funded into 2023.
