13:54 EDTALKSEarnings Watch: Alkermes up around 17% since last earnings report
Alkermes (ALKS) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, July 30 with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Alkermes, an integrated biopharmaceutical company, engages in the research, development, and commercialization of pharmaceutical products to address unmet medical needs of patients in various therapeutic areas. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for a loss of (10c) per share on revenue of $142.8M, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is for a loss of (17c)-(4c) on revenue of $134.5M-$153.28M. LAST QUARTER: Alkermes reported first quarter EPS of 6c, compared to a consensus estimate of a loss of (3c), on revenue of $161.2M against estimates of $146.6M. The company reiterated all of its financial expectations for 2015 that it had previously given on March 9, when it cut its 2015 EPS view to (37c)-(50c) from (27c)-(40c). Q1 revenue from the company's anti-psychotic franchise, including Risperdal were $46.9M, compared to $49.6M for the same period in the prior year. Revenues from Amprya/Famprya were $36.5M, compared to $20.6M for the same period in the prior year. "Our results this quarter reflect strong revenues from our portfolio of key commercial products and focused investment in our promising late-stage pipeline of CNS product candidates that will drive our future growth," commented Alkermes CFO James Frates. Alkermes CEO Richard Pops noted that the company is on the "threshold" of its next growth phase and that Aripiprazole lauroxil, the company's long-acting atypical anti-psychotic for schizophrenia, is moving toward FDA approval and launch later this year. STREET RESEARCH: On June 26, Cowen said the clinical profile for Alkermes' ALKS 3831 continues to look interesting, as the firm's consultants believe data for the drug suggests a profile that would provide a significant benefit over Zyprexa for the treatment of schizophrenia. Cowen reiterated its Outperform rating and $80 price target on Alkermes shares. PRICE ACTION: Alkermes shares are up around 17% since the company's last earnings report on April 30, and are down almost 3% to $67.40 in midday trading ahead of Thursday's earnings release.

07:43 EDTARIAARIAD to receive up to $200M through Iclusig synthetic-royalty financing with PDL BioPharma
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (ARIA) announced that it will receive $100 million in cash – $50 million upon deal execution late yesterday and an additional $50 million in one year – through a synthetic-royalty financing from PDL BioPharma (PDLI) in exchange for paying PDL a mid-single-digit royalty on future sales of Iclusig until PDL receives a fixed internal rate of return. ARIAD also has an option, in its discretion, to receive up to an additional $100 million at any time between 6 and 12 months from the date of the agreement, in one or two tranches on comparable terms. ARIAD intends to use the base funds to conduct a front-line trial of brigatinib, its investigational ALK inhibitor, in patients with non-small cell lung cancer and to support brigatinib commercial readiness, as well as to continue its ongoing Iclusig initiatives. ARIAD is on track to complete enrollment in the pivotal ALTA trial of brigatinib in third quarter 2015, to file for approval in the U.S. next year, and subject to regulatory approval, to launch brigatinib by early 2017. Brigatinib has Breakthrough Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “This financing allows us to accelerate initiation of the front-line trial of brigatinib and to ensure launch readiness as early as possible, while retaining strategic flexibility with respect to partnering and long-term commercialization of brigatinib,” said Harvey J. Berger, M.D., chairman and CEO of ARIAD. “We are confident based on the latest clinical data on brigatinib and other ALK‐inhibitors, that brigatinib may be an important new cancer medicine for patients with ALK+ lung cancer. With the funding provided by this royalty transaction, we expect to start the front-line trial by early next year, ahead of our expected filing for initial marketing approval of brigatinib in patients with refractory ALK+ NSCLC.”
