raptor pharmaceutical corp (RPTP) Key Developments

Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2014

Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company's net product sales were $16,313,000 against $21,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $9,085,000 against $15,998,000 a year ago. Net loss before provision for income taxes was $12,687,000 or $0.20 basic and diluted per share against $24,121,000 or $0.43 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Non-GAAP loss was $9,418,000 or $0.15 basic and diluted per share against $22,275,000 or $0.40 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Cash burn in the second quarter reflects support of commercial, clinical and corporate infrastructure, as well as initial efforts to expand manufacturing capabilities and capacity. For the six months, the company's net product sales were $28,447,000 against $21,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $19,876,000 against $32,273,000 a year ago. Net loss before provision for income taxes was $27,572,000 or $0.44 basic and diluted per share against $40,048,000 or $0.73 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Non-GAAP loss was $21,934,000 or $0.35 basic and diluted per share against $36,451,000 or $0.66 basic and diluted per share a year ago. The company is increasing net product sales guidance for PROCYSBI to a range of $65 million to $70 million for 2014 compared to previous guidance of $55 million to $65 million. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, operating expenses consisting of SG&A and R&D are expected to be in the range of $80 million to $90 million in 2014. GAAP operating expenses for 2014 are not readily determinable due to the volatility of the company's common stock, which directly affects stock-based compensation expense. The company's cash and cash equivalents, after the recent financing in July, are expected to be sufficient to fund operations through at least the first half of 2016, based on current operating plan assumptions.

Raptor Pharmaceuticals Corp. Receives Orphan Drug Designation for Cysteamine Bitartrate in Huntington's Disease from the European Commission

Raptor Pharmaceuticals Corp. announced that the European Commission (EC) approved its application for orphan drug designation of cysteamine bitartrate, the active ingredient in RP103, for the treatment of Huntington's disease. The decision follows a positive recommendation from the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in June. In February of this year, Raptor announced encouraging top line results from a planned 18-month analysis of the blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled phase of its ongoing CYST-HD clinical trial of RP103, its proprietary delayed release cysteamine bitartrate capsule, in patients with early-stage Huntington's disease. RP103 was designated an Orphan Medicinal Product for the treatment of Huntington's disease because it meets the conditions established by the EC under council Regulation 141/2000. Orphan Drug Exclusivity is designed to provide regulatory and financial incentives for companies to develop and market therapies that treat life-threatening or debilitating conditions with a prevalence in the EU of not more than five in 10,000. Huntington's disease prevalence meets the criteria as defined by this regulation. The COMP also considers whether there is any satisfactory method of prevention, diagnosis or treatment or if the medicinal product being considered will be of significant benefit to those affected by the condition. Raptor submitted the 18-month CYST-HD results as part of the orphan application.
