CAMBRIDGE, Mass., October 28, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALNY), the leading RNAi therapeutics company, today reported its consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 and reviewed recent business highlights.

"Our third quarter commercial performance was highlighted by strength from ONPATTRO, and continued execution on the on-going launches of GIVLAARI and OXLUMO. Another notable achievement was our announcement of positive topline 18-month results from the HELIOS-A Phase 3 study of vutrisiran in patients with hATTR amyloidosis with polyneuropathy, including improvements in exploratory and cardiac amyloid endpoints, which we believe are encouraging hypothesis-generating data ahead of upcoming readouts from the APOLLO-B and HELIOS-B Phase 3 studies of patisiran and vutrisiran, respectively," said John Maraganore, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Alnylam. "We also made significant progress with many of our other programs, and we remain focused on executing on our ‘Alnylam P5x25’ vision, through which we intend to deliver transformative medicines to patients around the world for rare and prevalent diseases, advancing a robust and high-yielding pipeline of first and/or best-in-class product candidates from our organic product engine, while delivering exceptional financial performance. Lastly, with the announcement this morning of my planned transition from Alnylam at year end, I’d like to emphasize how thrilled I am about the future of Alnylam under Yvonne’s upcoming stewardship. I have immense confidence in her ability to continue to deliver on the promise of RNAi therapeutics for patients around the world."

Research & Development (R&D) Expenses

  • GAAP and Non-GAAP R&D expenses increased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the same periods in 2020, primarily due to continued investment in our early- and late-stage clinical programs.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) Expenses

  • GAAP SG&A expenses decreased during the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to a change in an estimate of contingent liabilities related to our arbitration with Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in 2020.

  • GAAP SG&A expenses increased during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to increased investment to support the global growth of our three commercialized products and increased stock-based compensation expense primarily due to the accounting for certain performance-based stock awards.

  • Non-GAAP SG&A expenses increased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the same periods in 2020, primarily due to increased investment to support the global growth of our three commercialized products.

Other Financial Highlights

Other (Expense) Income

  • For the three months ended September 30, 2021, interest expense was $40.3 million, which included $30.3 million associated with the sale of future royalties and $10 million associated with the drawdown of our credit facility beginning in December 2020.

  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, interest expense was $106.2 million, which included $87.3 million associated with the sale of future royalties and $18.9 million associated with the drawdown of our credit facility beginning in December 2020. In addition, we recorded a loss of $19.7 million as a result of a change in fair value of the development derivative liability.

Cash and Investments

  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $2.33 billion as of September 30, 2021 compared to $1.87 billion as of December 31, 2020 with the increase primarily due to receipt in September 2021 of the second $500 million payment from Blackstone from the partial sale of future inclisiran royalties, $250 million in gross proceeds from the second drawdown on our credit facility and approximately $200 million in proceeds from the exercise of employee equity awards, offset by cash used in our operations to support overall growth.

A reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP results for the current quarter is included in the tables of this press release.

2021 Financial Guidance

Full year 2021 financial guidance is reiterated and consists of the following:

Combined net product revenues for
ONPATTRO, GIVLAARI and OXLUMO

$640 million - $665 million

Net revenues from collaborations and royalties

$150 million - $200 million

GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses

$1,335 million - $1,455 million

Non-GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses*

$1,175 million - $1,275 million

*Primarily excludes $160-$180 million of stock-based compensation expenses from estimated GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including expenses adjusted to exclude certain non-cash expenses and non-recurring gains outside the ordinary course of the Company’s business. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

The items included in GAAP presentations but excluded for purposes of determining non-GAAP financial measures for the periods presented in this press release are stock-based compensation expenses, unrealized (gains) losses on marketable equity securities, costs associated with our strategic financing collaboration, upfront payment on license and collaboration agreement, change in estimate of contingent liabilities and loss on contractual settlement. The Company has excluded the impact of stock-based compensation expense, which may fluctuate from period to period based on factors including the variability associated with performance-based grants for stock options and restricted stock units and changes in the Company’s stock price, which impacts the fair value of these awards. The Company has excluded the impact of the unrealized (gains) losses on marketable equity securities because the Company does not believe these adjustments accurately reflect the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations for the period in which such gains or losses are reported, as their sole purpose is to adjust amounts on the balance sheet. The Company has excluded the impact of the costs associated with our strategic financing collaboration, upfront payment on license and collaboration agreement, change in estimate of contingent liabilities and loss on contractual settlement because the Company believes these items are non-recurring transactions outside the ordinary course of the Company’s business.

The Company believes the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. When GAAP financial measures are viewed in conjunction with non-GAAP financial measures, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of the Company’s ongoing operating performance and are better able to compare the Company’s performance between periods. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among those indicators the Company uses as a basis for evaluating performance, allocating resources and planning and forecasting future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided later in this press release.

About ONPATTRO® (patisiran)

ONPATTRO is an RNAi therapeutic that was approved in the United States and Canada for the treatment of the polyneuropathy of hATTR amyloidosis in adults. ONPATTRO is also approved in the European Union, Switzerland and Brazil for the treatment of hATTR amyloidosis in adults with Stage 1 or Stage 2 polyneuropathy, and in Japan for the treatment of hATTR amyloidosis with polyneuropathy. ONPATTRO is an intravenously administered RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin (TTR) and should be administered via a healthcare professional. It is designed to target and silence TTR messenger RNA, thereby blocking the production of TTR protein before it is made. ONPATTRO blocks the production of TTR in the liver, reducing its accumulation in the body’s tissues in order to halt or slow down the progression of the polyneuropathy associated with the disease. For more information about ONPATTRO, including please see the full US Prescribing Information, visit ONPATTRO.com.

About GIVLAARI® (givosiran)

GIVLAARI is an RNAi therapeutic targeting aminolevulinic acid synthase 1 (ALAS1) approved in the United States and Brazil for the treatment of adults with acute hepatic porphyria (AHP). GIVLAARI is also approved in the European Union for the treatment of AHP in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older. In the pivotal study, givosiran was shown to significantly reduce the rate of porphyria attacks that required hospitalizations, urgent healthcare visits or intravenous hemin administration at home compared to placebo. GIVLAARI is Alnylam’s first commercially available therapeutic based on its Enhanced Stabilization Chemistry ESC-GalNAc conjugate technology to increase potency and durability. GIVLAARI is administered via subcutaneous injection once monthly at a dose based on actual body weight and should be administered by a healthcare professional. GIVLAARI works by specifically reducing elevated levels of aminolevulinic acid synthase 1 (ALAS1) messenger RNA (mRNA), leading to reduction of toxins associated with attacks and other disease manifestations of AHP. For more information about GIVLAARI, including the full U.S. Prescribing Information.
visit GIVLAARI.com.

About OXLUMO® (lumasiran)

OXLUMO is an RNAi therapeutic targeting hydroxyacid oxidase 1 (HAO1) for the treatment of primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) to lower urinary oxalate levels in pediatric and adult patients. HAO1 encodes glycolate oxidase (GO), an enzyme upstream of the disease-causing defect in PH1. OXLUMO works by degrading HAO1 messenger RNA and reducing the synthesis of GO, which inhibits hepatic production of oxalate – the toxic metabolite responsible for the clinical manifestations of PH1. In the pivotal ILLUMINATE-A study, OXLUMO was shown to significantly reduce levels of urinary oxalate relative to placebo, with the majority of patients reaching normal or near-normal levels. Injection site reactions (ISRs) were the most common drug-related adverse reaction. In the ILLUMINATE-B pediatric Phase 3 study, OXLUMO demonstrated an efficacy and safety profile consistent to that observed in ILLUMINATE-A. OXLUMO utilizes Alnylam’s Enhanced Stabilization Chemistry (ESC)-GalNAc conjugate technology designed to increase potency and durability. OXLUMO is administered via subcutaneous injection once monthly for three months, then once quarterly thereafter at a dose based on actual body weight. For patients who weigh less than 10 kg, ongoing dosing remains monthly. OXLUMO should be administered by a healthcare professional. For more information about OXLUMO, including the full U.S. Prescribing Information. visit OXLUMO.com.

About LNP Technology

Alnylam has licenses to Arbutus Biopharma LNP intellectual property for use in RNAi therapeutic products using LNP technology.

About RNAi

RNAi (RNA interference) is a natural cellular process of gene silencing that represents one of the most promising and rapidly advancing frontiers in biology and drug development today. Its discovery has been heralded as "a major scientific breakthrough that happens once every decade or so," and was recognized with the award of the 2006 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. By harnessing the natural biological process of RNAi occurring in our cells, a new class of medicines, known as RNAi therapeutics, is now a reality. Small interfering RNA (siRNA), the molecules that mediate RNAi and comprise Alnylam's RNAi therapeutic platform, function upstream of today’s medicines by potently silencing messenger RNA (mRNA) – the genetic precursors – that encode for disease-causing or disease pathway proteins, thus preventing them from being made. This is a revolutionary approach with the potential to transform the care of patients with genetic and other diseases.

About Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

Alnylam (Nasdaq: ALNY) is leading the translation of RNA interference (RNAi) into a whole new class of innovative medicines with the potential to transform the lives of people afflicted with rare genetic, cardio-metabolic, hepatic infectious, and central nervous system (CNS)/ocular diseases. Based on Nobel Prize-winning science, RNAi therapeutics represent a powerful, clinically validated approach for the treatment of a wide range of severe and debilitating diseases. Founded in 2002, Alnylam is delivering on a bold vision to turn scientific possibility into reality, with a robust RNAi therapeutics platform. Alnylam’s commercial RNAi therapeutic products are ONPATTRO® (patisiran), GIVLAARI® (givosiran), and OXLUMO® (lumasiran), as well as Leqvio® (inclisiran), which is being developed and commercialized by Alnylam’s partner Novartis.

Actual results and future plans may differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements as a result of various important risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, without limitation: the direct or indirect impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic or any future pandemic on Alnylam’s business, results of operations and financial condition and the effectiveness or timeliness of Alnylam’s efforts to mitigate the impact of the pandemic; the potential impact of the planned leadership transition at year end on Alnylam’s ability to attract and retain talent and to successfully execute on its "Alnylam P5x25" strategy; Alnylam's ability to discover and develop novel drug candidates and delivery approaches and successfully demonstrate the efficacy and safety of its product candidates; the pre-clinical and clinical results for its product candidates; actions or advice of regulatory agencies and Alnylam’s ability to obtain and maintain regulatory approval for its product candidates, as well as favorable pricing and reimbursement; successfully launching, marketing and selling its approved products globally; delays, interruptions or failures in the manufacture and supply of its product candidates or its marketed products; obtaining, maintaining and protecting intellectual property; Alnylam’s ability to successfully expand the indication for ONPATTRO and vutrisiran in the future; Alnylam's ability to manage its growth and operating expenses through disciplined investment in operations and its ability to achieve a self-sustainable financial profile in the future without the need for future equity financing; Alnylam’s ability to maintain strategic business collaborations; Alnylam's dependence on third parties for the development and commercialization of certain products, including Novartis, Regeneron and Vir; the outcome of litigation; the potential impact of a current government investigation and the risk of future government investigations; and unexpected expenditures; as well as those risks more fully discussed in the "Risk Factors" filed with Alnylam's most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and in its other SEC filings. In addition, any forward-looking statements represent Alnylam's views only as of today and should not be relied upon as representing its views as of any subsequent date. Alnylam explicitly disclaims any obligation, except to the extent required by law, to update any forward-looking statements.
