Financial Performance

  • Revenue was DKK 3,025 million in 2018 compared to DKK 2,365 million in 2017. The increase of DKK 660 million, or 28%, was mainly driven by higher DARZALEX royalties under our daratumumab collaboration with Janssen, the payment from Novartis of USD 50 million (DKK 304 million) and reimbursement income from our collaborations with Seattle Genetics and BioNTech, partly offset by a decrease in DARZALEX milestones.
  • Operating expenses increased by DKK 624 million, or 61%, from DKK 1,021 million in 2017 to DKK 1,645 million in 2018 driven by the advancement of tisotumab vedotin, additional investments in our product pipeline, and the increase in employees to support the expansion of our pipeline.
  • Operating income was DKK 1,380 million in 2018 compared to DKK 1,344 million in 2017. The improvement of DKK 36 million, or 3%, was driven by higher revenue, which was mostly offset by increased operating expenses.
  • 2018 year end cash position of DKK 6,106 million, an increase of DKK 683 million, or 13%, from DKK 5,423 million as of December 31, 2017.




2019 Guidance

2018 Actual Result

Revenue4,600 3,025 
Operating expenses(2,600)(1,645)
Operating income2,000 1,380 


We expect our 2019 revenue to be approximately DKK 4,600 million, compared to DKK 3,025 million in 2018, an increase of DKK 1,575 million or 52%.  Our projected revenue for 2019 primarily consists of DARZALEX royalties of DKK 2,685 million, based on estimated net sales of USD 3.0 billion. We project DARZALEX milestones of approximately DKK 1,500 million related to commercial net-sales based milestones for achieving net-sales in a calendar year of both USD 2.5 billion and USD 3.0 billion respectively. The remainder of the revenue consists of cost reimbursement income, Arzerra royalties, and DuoBody milestones.

Operating Expenses

We anticipate that our 2019 operating expenses will be approximately DKK 2,600 million, an increase of DKK 955 million or 58% compared to 2018. The increase is driven by the advancement of our clinical programs, particularly tisotumab vedotin and enapotamab vedotin.

Operating Result

We expect the operating income to be approximately DKK 2,000 million in 2019 compared to DKK 1,380 million in 2018, an increase of DKK 620 million or 45%.
