- HintMD’s processing volume run-rate more than doubled to over $400 million from the prior quarter

Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVNC), a biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 and provided a corporate update.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the first quarter 2021 totaled $13.3 million compared to $0.1 million for the first quarter 2020. The increase was primarily due to sales resulting from the commercial launch of the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers and increased revenue related to the biosimilar program. Revenue included $11.6 million of product revenue from sales of the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers, $1.5 million of collaboration revenue and $0.1 million of service revenue from the HintMD platform.

  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the first quarter 2021 were $49.0 million compared to $21.2 million for the first quarter 2020. The increase was primarily due to sales and marketing expenses related for the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers, pre-commercial activities for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection and other personnel-related expenses from integrating HintMD. SG&A expenses include depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation. Excluding these expenses, non-GAAP SG&A expenses were $40.8 million for the first quarter 2021.

  • Research and development (R&D) expenses for the first quarter 2021 were $27.3 million compared to $39.8 million for the first quarter 2020. The decrease was primarily due to lower clinical trial costs and regulatory costs as the company completed multiple clinical trials in 2020, offset by costs related to pre-commercial manufacturing and developmental efforts. R&D expenses include depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation. Excluding these expenses, non-GAAP R&D expenses were $23.5 million for the first quarter 2021.

  • Total operating expenses for the first quarter 2021 were $83.3 million compared to $61.0 million for first quarter 2020. Excluding costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and in-process research and development, non-GAAP operating expenses for the first quarter 2021 were $64.2 million.

  • Net loss for the first quarter 2021 was $71.6 million.

  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2021 were $386.8 million.

  • Net proceeds from the issuance of approximately 0.8 million shares of common stock during the first quarter under the company’s At-the-Market (ATM) program totaled $21.7 million. Since the fourth quarter of 2020, a total of $90.1 million in net proceeds have been raised on the ATM program, which has aggregate offering price of up to $125 million.

"We are very pleased with our commercial execution in the first quarter, particularly given the impact of COVID-19 and seasonality, where the first quarter is traditionally a slower time of the year for the aesthetics market. We are also encouraged by the progress we are making in our therapeutics franchise as we begin laying the groundwork for our first anticipated approval in the treatment of muscle movement disorders," said Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our FDA approval for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for glabellar lines remains under review with a deferred action due to COVID-related travel restrictions. We stand ready for the pre-approval inspection of our manufacturing facility and are actively engaging with the FDA to schedule an inspection date as soon as possible. We continue to anticipate an approval this year and, as we have noted before, the FDA did not indicate that there were any other review issues beyond the pending inspection."

Foley continued, "We remain focused on execution for the balance of the year and believe we are well positioned for continued growth based on our targeted launch strategy, differentiated products and services and anticipated approval of our next-generation neuromodulator. When combined with our efforts in therapeutics and steady progress in our partnerships, we are encouraged by the longer-term growth opportunities that will be available to us."

First Quarter Highlights and Subsequent Updates

Aesthetics Franchise

  • RHA® Collection revenue totaled $11.6 million for the first quarter 2021 and $21.6 million in the first two full quarters of commercial launch. Strong revenue growth was driven by increased account penetration, supported by the ramp up of training programs along with targeted influencer and digital media campaigns. The number of aesthetic accounts across the RHA® Collection and HintMD fintech platform totaled over 1,500 at the end of the first quarter 2021.

  • Record quarter for HintMD processing volume run-rate. HintMD’s processing volume run-rate more than doubled to over $400 million from the prior quarter driven by increased account penetration and a streamlined sales and customer acquisition process.

  • Biologics License Application (BLA) for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of glabellar lines remains under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review. As of the date of this earnings press release, the FDA has not scheduled or conducted a pre-approval inspection of the company's Northern California manufacturing facility. The company previously announced that the FDA did not indicate any further outstanding review issues beyond the pending inspection. The company continues to work closely with the FDA to schedule an inspection as soon as possible and is building inventory of the drug product in preparation for launch. The company will issue a press release when it receives official communication from the FDA on the company’s inspection timing.

Therapeutics Franchise

  • Positive topline Phase 2 data from the JUNIPER study on DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of adults with upper limb spasticity. In February, the company announced that the JUNIPER study delivered efficacy, safety and dosing data that warranted advancement of the program to Phase 3.

  • Strengthened commercial foundation of the therapeutics franchise. Given the company’s progress in its clinical trial programs, including the successful completion of the ASPEN-1 Phase 3 trial of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in cervical dystonia, the company has begun building the commercial foundation for the therapeutics franchise in preparation for launch, following approval. During and subsequent to the quarter-end, the company strengthened its therapeutics team with key hires and promotions, including the appointment of Angela Willis as Vice President of Market Access. Ms. Willis has more than 20 years of experience in biopharma market access and pricing strategy across multiple therapeutics areas including neurology, having served as the Vice President of Market Access at Alder Pharmaceuticals (now Lundbeck Seattle BioPharmaceuticals).

Corporate Highlights

  • Advancement in international partnership with Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Industrial Development Co. (Fosun Pharma Industrial). In April, the company announced that Fosun Pharma Industrial enrolled their first patients in two separate Phase 3 trials of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in China, for the potential treatment of glabellar lines and cervical dystonia.

Near-Term Milestone Expectations

Aesthetics Franchise:

  • BLA approval for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection in the treatment of glabellar lines anticipated in 2021.

  • The release of the next-generation HintMD fintech platform, including the vertical integration of payment facilitation (PayFac), planned for mid-2021.

  • Our partner, Teoxane SA, has submitted the pre-market approval application for RHA® 1 for perioral (lip) lines and anticipates FDA approval in the second half 2021. RHA® 1 will be added to Revance’s RHA® Collection offering, once approved.

Therapeutics Franchise:

  • Topline results from the ASPEN-OLS Phase 3 open-label, long-term safety study of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of cervical dystonia expected in the second half 2021.

  • End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA anticipated in the second half of 2021 for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the treatment of adults with upper limb spasticity.

2021 Financial Outlook

Revance reiterates its financial guidance provided in February 2021. The company expects 2021 GAAP operating expenses to be $375 million to $390 million and non-GAAP operating expenses, which exclude costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation to be $270 million to $285 million. Revance expects 2021 non-GAAP research and development expense to be $95 million to $105 million. With the current cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, management projects that the company is funded into 2024.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Revance has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. This release and the reconciliation tables included herein include non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, which excludes depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation; non-GAAP R&D expense, which excludes depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation; and total non-GAAP operating expense, which excludes costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and in-process research and development costs. Revance excludes costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs because management believes the exclusion of these items is helpful to investors to evaluate Revance's recurring operational performance. Revance management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and evaluate its operating results and trends on an on-going basis, and internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

Certain non-GAAP measures included in this report were not reconciled to the comparable GAAP financial measures because the GAAP measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis. The company is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP measures for these periods but would not impact the non-GAAP measures. Such items include costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and non-cash in-process research and development costs. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the company’s GAAP financial results.
