Interim report for the first nine months of 2017

Copenhagen, November 8, 2017 - Zealand Pharma A/S ("ZEAL") announces financial results and continued strong progress for its product candidates and business for the first nine months of 2017. Financial guidance for 2017 has been revised with 4-6% lower operating expenses.

Financial results for the first nine months of 2017

  • Revenue of DKK 128.5 million/USD 20.4 million[1] (DKK 54.3 million/USD 8.1 million2 in the first nine months of 2016).
  • Net operating expenses3 of DKK 251.7 million/USD 39.9 million1 (DKK 220.9 million/USD 33.1 million2 in the first nine months of 2016).
  • Net result of DKK -162.3 million/USD -25.7 million1 (DKK -206.7 million/USD -31.0 million2 in the first nine months of 2016).
  • Cash position of DKK 780.6 million/USD 123.8 million1 per September 30, 2017 (December 31, 2016: DKK 642.1 million/USD 91.0 million4, including restricted cash).

Business highlights for Q3 2017

  • Listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market in the U.S. raising gross DKK 567 million/USD 90 million[1].

  • Initiation of Phase 3 trial with dasiglucagon for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia.

  • Orphan drug designation for dasiglucagon for the treatment of congenital hyperinsulinism was granted by FDA in the U.S.

  • Boehringer Ingelheim initiated Phase 1 trial in the amylin analog program, triggering a EUR 4 million milestone payment to Zealand.

  • Boehringer Ingelheim initiated Phase 1 trial in the GLP-1/glucagon dual agonist program.

  • Soliqua® 100/33 revenue increased 37% and payer coverage increased 4%-point over the previous quarter to cover 65% of commercial lives.

Business highlights for the period thereafter

  • Orphan drug designation for glepaglutide for the treatment of short bowel syndrome granted by FDA in the U.S.

  • The potential for less than once-daily dosing with glepaglutide is being evaluated in a clinical trial, following positive results in the Phase 2 trial for Short Bowel Syndrome.

  • Patient enrolment completed for Phase 3 trial with dasiglucagon for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia.

Britt Meelby Jensen, President and CEO of Zealand

, comments:

"We continue to see strong results and progress with our clinical product candidates, and following the U.S. IPO in August, where we raised USD 90 million, we are in a solid position to advance our late stage clinical programs at full speed. For glepaglutide, we are in preparation to start Phase 3 mid-2018, we received orphan drug designation and we are finalizing a trial to assess the potential for a better dosing option for patients. In addition, two of our partnered programs have advanced to Phase 1 for treatment of obesity and/or diabetes. With this, I am convinced that Zealand is set for a successful future."

Revised financial guidance for 2017 

For 2017, Zealand maintains its revenue guidance of a continued increase in royalty payments from Sanofi. No specific guidance on the level of royalties can be provided as Sanofi has not provided any guidance on expected 2017 sales.

Milestone revenue of DKK 101 million has been received from partners.

Net operating expenses in 2017 are expected to be within the range of DKK 375-385 million, 4-6 % lower than previously guided (DKK 390-410 million). The decrease relates to timing of clinical studies as well as tight cost control.

Operating loss before royalty income/expenses has been reduced from DKK 290-310 million to DKK 275-285 million.

Conference call today at 4 pm CET/10 am EST

Zealand's management will be hosting a conference call today at 4 pm CET/10 am EST to present the results for the first nine months of 2017. Participating in the call will be President and Chief Executive Officer Britt Meelby Jensen, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Mats Blom and Executive Vice President and Chief Medical and Development Officer Adam Steensberg.

Aktier/middag: Mærsk trækker C25 i rødt med nyt fra kapitalmarkedsdag

20-02-2018 11:42:02
De danske eliteaktier er delt nogenlunde på midten tirsdag formiddag, men Mærsk-aktierne agerer tunge lodder i bunden, som trækker det samlede C25-indeks ned i et mindre fald på 0,5 pct. til 1126,09.Mærsk holder kapitalmarkedsdag tirsdag i København, og de oplysninger, der indtil nu er sluppet ud fra Operaen, har tilsyneladende ikke opmuntret investorerne, der sender Mærsk-aktierne ned.Generelt er..
