"Our business achieved strong revenue growth in the first quarter of 2022 as we continue to realize the benefits of our sustained R&D investment and our focus on commercial execution," said Robert E. Landry, Executive Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer of Regeneron. "We remain confident that our differentiated products and significant pipeline opportunities position us well to deliver strong results and provide sustainable value to patients and shareholders."

Business Highlights

Key Pipeline Progress

Regeneron has approximately 35 product candidates in clinical development, including a number of marketed products for which it is investigating additional indications. Updates from the clinical pipeline include:

EYLEA® (aflibercept) Injection

  • A supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for EYLEA for an every-16-weeks dosing regimen in patients with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) was submitted.

Aflibercept 8 mg

  • In February 2022, the Company announced detailed results from its Phase 2 trial evaluating an investigational 8 mg high dose of aflibercept compared to the currently-approved 2 mg dose of EYLEA in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD). The trial met its primary endpoints for safety, and no new safety signals were observed through week 44. Consistent with initial data announced last year, aflibercept 8 mg continued to show numeric improvements in anatomical and vision outcomes compared to EYLEA through 44 weeks.

Dupixent® (dupilumab)

  • In April 2022, the European Commission (EC) approved Dupixent for the treatment of severe asthma in children aged 6 to 11 years.

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted for priority review the sBLA for Dupixent for children aged 6 months to 5 years with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, with a target action date of June 9, 2022. A regulatory application was also submitted in the European Union (EU).

  • The FDA accepted for priority review the sBLA for Dupixent for adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), with a target action date of August 3, 2022. A regulatory application was also submitted in the EU.

  • In January 2022, the Company and Sanofi announced positive results from a second Phase 3 trial in adults with uncontrolled prurigo nodularis. An sBLA and a regulatory submission in the EU for Dupixent for adults with uncontrolled prurigo nodularis were subsequently submitted.

  • In February 2022, the Company and Sanofi provided an update on Dupixent in patients with chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU), in which they had previously reported positive results from the first trial in biologic-naïve patients (i.e., not previously treated with omalizumab) that showed Dupixent significantly reduced itch and hives compared to standard-of-care antihistamines alone. The Company and Sanofi announced that they stopped a second trial in patients refractory to omalizumab due to futility.

Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 virus

  • In April 2022, the Company announced that the FDA extended by three months its review of the BLA for REGEN-COV® (casirivimab and imdevimab) to treat COVID-19 in non-hospitalized patients and as prophylaxis in certain individuals. The extension is due to ongoing discussions with the FDA on pre-exposure prophylactic use, for which Regeneron has submitted additional data from its completed prophylaxis trial that the FDA has accepted for review. The FDA determined these additional data constitute a Major Amendment to the BLA and provided a new target action date of July 13, 2022.

  • A regulatory application was submitted in the EU for RonapreveTM(b) for the treatment of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients.

  • In January 2022, the FDA revised the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for REGEN-COV to exclude its use in geographic regions where, based on available information including variant susceptibility and regional variant frequency, infection or exposure is likely due to a variant such as an Omicron-lineage variant that is not susceptible to the treatment. If, in the future, patients in certain geographic regions are likely to be infected or exposed to a variant that is susceptible to REGEN-COV, then the limitation on use may be revised.

  • The Company is progressing investigational "next generation" antibodies that are active against multiple variants including those of Omicron-lineage, and has initiated a first-in-human clinical trial.

Fianlimab, an antibody to LAG-3

  • A Phase 3 study in first-line metastatic melanoma was initiated.

Odronextamab, a CD20xCD3 bispecific antibody

  • The FDA granted Fast Track designation for follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

NTLA-2001, a CRISPR/Cas9 therapeutic for TTR gene knockout

  • In February 2022, Intellia Therapeutics, Inc. and the Company reported updated positive interim data from the Phase 1 trial in transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis.

Business Development Update

  • In April 2022, the Company entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire Checkmate Pharmaceuticals, Inc. at a total equity value of approximately $250 million. On May 2, 2022, the Company initiated a tender offer to acquire any and all outstanding shares of Checkmate common stock at a price of $10.50 per share, to be paid to each shareholder tendering Checkmate shares in cash, without interest, subject to reduction for any applicable withholding taxes. The transaction is expected to close, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions including regulatory approvals, in mid-2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues increased by 17% to $2.965 billion in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $2.529 billion in the first quarter of 2021. Total revenues excluding REGEN-COV and Ronapreve(b) revenues for both periods increased by 25% to $2.749 billion in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021(a).

** Percentage not meaningful

Total revenues also include collaboration revenues(c) of $1.233 billion in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $754 million in the first quarter of 2021. Sanofi collaboration revenue increased primarily due to the Company's share of profits from commercialization of antibodies, which were $415 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $261 million in the first quarter of 2021. The change in the Company's share of profits from commercialization of antibodies was driven by higher Dupixent profits. In the first quarter of 2022, the Company earned a $50 million sales-based milestone from Sanofi, upon aggregate annual sales of antibodies outside the United States exceeding $2.0 billion on a rolling twelve-month basis.

Bayer collaboration revenue increased to $385 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $323 million in the first quarter of 2021.

The Company also recorded Roche collaboration revenue of $216 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $67 million in the first quarter of 2021, in connection with payments from Roche attributable to global gross profits from sales of Ronapreve.

Refer to Table 4 for a summary of collaboration revenue.

Other revenue in the first quarter of 2022 included a $30 million up-front payment received from Ultragenyx in connection with the Company's Evkeeza license and collaboration agreement.

** Beginning with the first quarter of 2022, the Company added this new line item to its Statements of Operations, which includes in-process R&D acquired in connection with asset acquisitions as well as up-front/opt-in payments related to license and collaboration agreements. Amounts recorded in this line would have historically been recorded to R&D. In addition, the Company has modified its presentation of non-GAAP reporting and will no longer exclude such expenses from its non-GAAP results. This change does not affect previously reported first quarter 2021 non-GAAP results as the Company recorded no significant charges related to such transactions during that period.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP R&D expenses increased in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher headcount and headcount-related costs, an increase in clinical manufacturing activities, and lower reimbursements from Roche related to REGEN-COV. The increase was partly offset by lower costs incurred in connection with REGEN-COV development activities.

  • Acquired IPR&D in the first quarter of 2022 included a $20 million opt-in payment in connection with a product candidate under the Company's collaboration agreement with Adicet Bio, Inc.

  • The increase in GAAP and non-GAAP SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, was primarily due to higher headcount and headcount-related costs and an increase in commercialization-related expenses for EYLEA.

  • GAAP COGS in the first quarter of 2022 included $58 million of costs related to REGEN-COV, including inventory write-offs and reserves, as a result of the FDA revision of the EUA for REGEN-COV (as described above). GAAP and non-GAAP COGS in the first quarter of 2022 included lower REGEN-COV manufacturing costs since there were no net product sales in the United States.

  • COCM increased in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to the recognition of manufacturing costs associated with higher sales of Dupixent and an increase in shipments of commercial supplies of Praluent for Sanofi outside the United States.

Other Financial Information

GAAP other income (expense) included the recognition of net unrealized losses on equity securities of $211 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $144 million of net unrealized gains in the first quarter of 2021.

In the first quarter of 2022, the Company's GAAP effective tax rate was 8.3%, compared to 11.0% in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in the GAAP effective tax rate was due in part to the impact of stock-based compensation. In the first quarter of 2022, the non-GAAP effective tax rate was 11.6%, compared to 10.5% in the first quarter of 2021.

GAAP net income per diluted share was $8.61 in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $10.09 in the first quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $11.49 in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $9.89 in the first quarter of 2021. A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in Table 3 of this press release.

During the first quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased shares of common stock under its share repurchase program, and recorded the cost of the shares received, or $352 million, as Treasury Stock. As of March 31, 2022, $2.493 billion remained available for share repurchases under the program.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2022 was $2.102 billion, compared to $669 million in the first quarter of 2021, resulting in $1.960 billion in free cash flow for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $553 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase in free cash flow in the first quarter of 2022 was primarily due to the Company's collection of amounts due from the U.S. government in connection with REGEN-COV sales in the fourth quarter of 2021.

This press release uses non-GAAP R&D, non-GAAP SG&A, non-GAAP COGS, non-GAAP gross margin on net product sales, non-GAAP other income (expense), net, non-GAAP effective tax rate, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, total revenues excluding REGEN-COV and Ronapreve, and free cash flow, which are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures are computed by excluding certain non-cash and/or other items from the related GAAP financial measure. The Company also includes a non-GAAP adjustment for the estimated income tax effect of reconciling items. A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in Table 3 of this press release.

The Company makes such adjustments for items the Company does not view as useful in evaluating its operating performance. For example, adjustments may be made for items that fluctuate from period to period based on factors that are not within the Company's control (such as the Company's stock price on the dates share-based grants are issued or changes in the fair value of the Company's investments in equity securities) or items that are not associated with normal, recurring operations (such as restructuring-related expenses). Management uses these non-GAAP measures for planning, budgeting, forecasting, assessing historical performance, and making financial and operational decisions, and also provides forecasts to investors on this basis. With respect to free cash flows, the Company believes that this non-GAAP measure provides a further measure of the Company's operations' ability to generate cash flows. Additionally, such non-GAAP measures provide investors with an enhanced understanding of the financial performance of the Company's core business operations. However, there are limitations in the use of these and other non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude certain expenses that are recurring in nature. Furthermore, the Company's non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable with non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Any non-GAAP financial measure presented by Regeneron should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.



(b)

The casirivimab and imdevimab antibody cocktail is known as REGEN-COV in the United States and Ronapreve in other countries. The Company records net product sales of REGEN-COV in the United States and Roche records net product sales of Ronapreve outside the United States.



(c)

The Company's collaborators provide it with estimates of the collaborators' respective sales and the Company's share of the profits or losses (if applicable) from commercialization of products for the most recent fiscal quarter. These estimates are revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if the Company's actual share of the profits or losses differ from those estimates.



(d)

The Company's 2022 financial guidance does not assume the completion of any significant business development transactions not completed as of the date of this press release.



(e)

Gross margin on net product sales represents gross profit expressed as a percentage of total net product sales recorded by the Company. Gross profit is calculated as net product sales less cost of goods sold.



(f)

Corresponding reimbursements from collaborators and others for manufacturing of commercial supplies is recorded within revenues.
