Daiichi Sankyo and Charleston Laboratories, Inc. Announce Collaboration to Develop and Commercialize Novel, Fixed-Dose Combination Hydrocodone Products

Daiichi Sankyo and Charleston Laboratories, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary LOCL Pharma, Inc, announced that the parties have entered into a strategic collaboration for the development and U.S. commercialization of Charleston Laboratories' novel hydrocodone combination products, including CL-108, being studied for the treatment of moderate to severe acute pain as well as the reduction of Opioid-Induced Nausea and Vomiting (OINV). CL-108 combines 12.5 mg of immediate-release promethazine with 7.5 mg of hydrocodone and 325 mg of acetaminophen. Charleston recently completed a 465-patient phase 3 trial studying the effects of CL-108 as a treatment for moderate to severe acute pain and the reduction of OINV, where CL-108 demonstrated high statistical significance (P<0.01) in both primary endpoints relative to pain reduction and the symptoms of OINV. Under the terms of the agreement, which is pending Hart-Scott-Rodino clearance, Charleston Laboratories will receive $200 million, split evenly between an upfront cash payment and a near-term milestone and up to an additional $450 million in milestone payments connected to the filing and approval of its novel fixed-dose hydrocodone products in the United States.

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Dividend Guidance for the Year Ending March 31, 2015; Provides Consolidated Earnings Guidance for the Year Ending March 31, 2015

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited announced consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of JPY 254,449 million against JPY 252,637 million a year ago. Operating profit was JPY 29,430 million against JPY 15,180 million a year ago. Profit before tax was JPY 27,925 million against JPY 17,514 million a year ago. Profit attributable to owners of the company was JPY 19,986 million or JPY 28.34 per diluted share against JPY 15,024 million or JPY 21.31 per diluted share a year ago. Revenue at the Group as a whole increased owing to sales growth and beneficial exchange rates in Europe and other regions. Operating profit increased by JPY 14.2 billion, or 93.9% year on year. This substantial operating profit increase reflected not only an increase in gross profit but also decreases in selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses. In the first three months of the previous fiscal year, loss on business restructuring at Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH was recorded under selling, general and administrative expenses. Profit before tax increased by JPY 10.4 billion, or 59.4% year on year. This increase was not as substantial as the operating profit increase owing to a decrease in financial income and an increase in financial expenses. Profit attributable to owners of the company increased by JPY 5.0 billion or 33.0% year on year. This increase was not as substantial as profit before tax increase due to an increase in the amount of income taxes. For the year ending March 31, 2015, the company expects to pay a second quarter dividend of JPY 30.00 per share and a year end dividend of JPY 30.00 per share. For the year ending March 31, 2015, on consolidated basis, the company expects revenue of JPY 920,000 million, operating profit of JPY 120,000 million, profit before tax of JPY 120,000 million and profit attributable to owners of the company of JPY 78,000 million or JPY 110.80 per share.
