________________________

1.

In the third quarter of 2018, the company completed the sale of its rights to Prialt.

Total revenues increased 17% in 2018 and 9% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017.

Xyrem net product sales increased 18% in 2018 and 20% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017.

Erwinaze/Erwinase net product sales decreased 11% in 2018 and 49% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017. The intermittent product supply disruptions experienced in the fourth quarter and full year 2018 were more extensive than in 2017, resulting in significant supply outages that negatively impacted the company's ability to supply Erwinaze. The company expects further supply disruptions during 2019.

Defitelio/defibrotide net product sales increased 12% in 2018 and 4% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017. The company continues to expect inter-quarter variability in Defitelio net sales because hepatic veno-occlusive disease is an ultra-rare disease.

Vyxeos net product sales were $100.8 million in 2018 compared to $33.8 million in 2017. The company launched Vyxeos in the U.S. in August 2017 and initiated a rolling launch in the EU in September 2018. Vyxeos net product sales increased 6% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The company continues to focus resources on the launch of Vyxeos in a competitive and complex marketplace as well as on generating data to support Vyxeos' use across broader patient populations in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and other hematological malignancies.

Operating expenses changed over the prior year periods primarily due to the following:

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased in 2018 and in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017 on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis primarily due to expenses related to the potential commercial launch of solriamfetol in the U.S. and the rolling launch of Vyxeos in the EU, and an increase in compensation-related expenses driven by higher headcount. SG&A expenses in 2018 on a GAAP basis also included an estimated loss contingency of $57.0 million related to an ongoing U.S. Department of Justice investigation of the company's support of 501(c)(3) organizations that provide financial assistance to Medicare patients.
  • Research and development (R&D) expenses increased in 2018 and in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017 on a GAAP and on a non-GAAP adjusted basis due to increased expenses related to the company's pre-clinical and clinical development programs and regulatory activities, including an increase in related headcount for these activities, and support of our partner programs.
  • Impairment charges were recognized in 2018 in connection with the company's sale of its rights to Prialt.
  • Acquired in-process research and development expense in 2017 related to an upfront payment of $75.0 million in connection with a collaboration and option agreement with ImmunoGen, Inc.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2018, cash, cash equivalents and investments were $824.6 million and the outstanding principal balance of the company's long-term debt was $1.8 billion. In 2018, the company generated $798.9 million of cash from operations, received a $50.0 million upfront payment for the sale of rights to Prialt, purchased a priority review voucher for $110.0 million and used $523.7 million to repurchase shares.

In 2018, the company repurchased approximately 3,530,000 ordinary shares under the company's share repurchase program at an average cost of $148.33 per ordinary share. In November and December 2018, the company's board of directors increased the existing share repurchase program by $320.0 million and $400.0 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2018, the remaining amount authorized for share repurchases was $379.1 million.

Pipeline and Key Business Developments

In November 2018, the company announced that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence published a Final Appraisal Determination recommending Vyxeos® 44 mg/100 mg powder for concentrate for solution for infusion for routine use on the National Health Service in England and Wales for the treatment of adults with newly diagnosed, therapy-related AML or AML with myelodysplasia-related changes.

In November 2018, the company submitted a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for solriamfetol as a treatment to improve wakefulness and reduce excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in adult patients with narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

In November 2018, the company announced that the first patient was enrolled in a Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of JZP-258 for the treatment of idiopathic hypersomnia.

In December 2018, the company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration extended the review period for the company's new drug application (NDA) for solriamfetol as a treatment to improve wakefulness and reduce EDS in adult patients with narcolepsy or OSA. The updated Prescription Drug User Fee Act goal date is March 20, 2019.

In January 2019, the company and Codiak BioSciences, Inc. announced entry into a strategic collaboration focused on the research, development and commercialization of exosome therapeutics to treat cancer, including an exclusive license for five targets to be developed using Codiak's exosome platform.

In January 2019, the German Institute for the Hospital Remuneration System awarded Vyxeos NUB-1 status designation. The New Diagnostic and Therapeutic Methods (NUB) process opens the path for negotiations between hospitals and health insurers for the reimbursement of new medical treatments in the German system.  

In February 2019, Porton Biopharma Limited (PBL) delivered a notice of termination of the Erwinaze license and supply agreement, resulting in the expiration of the term of the agreement on December 31, 2020. If the company and PBL do not reach a new agreement to continue their commercial relationship beyond 2020, the company would retain the right to sell certain Erwinaze inventory for a 12 month period following contract expiration, but would otherwise lose its right to commercialize Erwinaze after December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Jazz Pharmaceuticals' financial results and guidance presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the company uses certain non-GAAP (also referred to as adjusted or non-GAAP adjusted) financial measures in this press release and the accompanying tables. In particular, the company presents non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components, as well as certain non-GAAP adjusted financial measures derived therefrom, including non-GAAP adjusted gross margin percentage and non-GAAP adjusted effective tax rate. Non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components exclude from reported GAAP net income (and the related per share measure) and its line item components certain items, as detailed in the reconciliation tables that follow, and in the case of non-GAAP adjusted net income (and the related per share measure), adjust for the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments and the U.S. Tax Act benefit. In this regard, the components of non-GAAP adjusted net income, including non-GAAP cost of product sales, non-GAAP SG&A expenses and non-GAAP R&D expenses, are income statement line items prepared on the same basis as, and therefore components of, the overall non-GAAP adjusted net income measure.

The company believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to, and facilitates additional analysis by, investors and analysts. In particular, the company believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, can enhance investors' and analysts' ability to meaningfully compare the company's results from period to period and to its forward-looking guidance, and to identify operating trends in the company's business. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are regularly used by investors and analysts to model and track the company's financial performance. Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management also regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the company's business and to make operating decisions, and compensation of executives is based in part on certain of these non-GAAP financial measures. Because these non-GAAP financial measures are important internal measurements for Jazz Pharmaceuticals' management, the company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and analysts since these measures allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics the company uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures; should be read in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP; have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In addition, from time to time in the future there may be other items that the company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; and the company has ceased, and may in the future cease, to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, the company may determine to modify the nature of its adjustments to arrive at its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measures as used by Jazz Pharmaceuticals in this press release and the accompanying tables have limits in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
