Rhea-AI Summary

Halozyme Therapeutics (NASDAQ: HALO) has raised its full-year 2024 financial guidance and updated its 5-year financial outlook, driven by a new European patent for its ENHANZE® drug delivery platform. The European Patent No. 4269578 will be validated in 37 countries and extends until March 6, 2029. This patent ensures the original royalty rate for DARZALEX SC in Europe, leading to increased revenue projections.

For 2024, Halozyme forecasts total revenue of $935 million to $1.015 billion, up 13% to 22% from 2023. Royalty revenue is expected to reach $520 million to $555 million, a 16% to 24% increase. Adjusted EBITDA is projected between $555 million and $615 million, a 30% to 44% growth, and non-GAAP diluted EPS is anticipated to range from $3.65 to $4.05, representing a 32% to 46% rise. The company's investor call on June 6 will provide further details.

Positive
  • Raised 2024 financial guidance with total revenue projected at $935 million to $1.015 billion, up 13% to 22%.
  • Royalty revenue expected to grow by 16% to 24%, reaching $520 million to $555 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA forecasted to increase by 30% to 44%, reaching $555 million to $615 million.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS projected to rise by 32% to 46%, ranging from $3.65 to $4.05.
  • New European patent for ENHANZE® ensures original royalty rate for DARZALEX SC until 2029, securing revenue streams.
Negative
  • Potential future share repurchases' impact on earnings per share not accounted for in current guidance.

Halozyme Therapeutics has raised its full-year 2024 financial guidance while also updating its 5-year financial outlook. This comes on the back of a new European patent for its ENHANZE® drug delivery platform. For retail investors, there are several key takeaway points here:

Revenue Growth: The company now expects total revenue between $935 million and $1,015 million for 2024, marking a growth of 13% to 22% over 2023. This is an uptick from the previous guidance range, showing positive momentum. This growth is primarily driven by increases in royalty revenue, collaboration revenue and product sales from XYOSTED®. The adjusted EBITDA growth projection is also robust, ranging from 30% to 44% over 2023.

Royalty Revenue: The major catalyst for this upward revision is the new European patent, which ensures that the royalty rate on sales of DARZALEX® SC in Europe remains unchanged until 2029. This stability provides a strong revenue stream and mitigates the risks related to royalty declines.

Non-GAAP EPS: The projected non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $3.65 to $4.05 represents a 32% to 46% increase over 2023. Notably, this projection does not factor in potential future share repurchases, suggesting room for upside.

For investors, these indicators are significant as they suggest a strong underlying business model with stable and growing revenue streams. However, it’s important to keep an eye on how the market responds to these projections and whether management can meet these ambitious targets.

The new European patent for ENHANZE® could be a game-changer for Halozyme, especially concerning its market positioning and future collaborations. Here are some relevant insights:

Market Expansion: The patent being valid in 37 European countries extends the protection of ENHANZE® rHuPH20. This broad coverage not only secures current revenue streams but also opens avenues for new partnerships and collaborations in Europe. Companies looking to enhance their drug delivery methods may find Halozyme's platform more attractive under this extended patent protection.

Competitive Advantage: By preventing a reduction in the royalty rate for DARZALEX® SC, Halozyme retains a competitive edge over potential competitors who may not have similar protections. This patent ensures that ENHANZE®'s associated products remain profitable and competitive in the market through 2029.

For retail investors, this means that Halozyme is not just looking at immediate gains but is well-positioned for sustainable growth and market dominance in the long term, making it a potentially lucrative investment.

Company Granted New European Patent for ENHANZE® Drug Delivery Platform

SAN DIEGO, June 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) ("Halozyme") today announced that the Company is raising its full year 2024 financial guidance and updating its 5-year financial outlook based on the grant of European Patent No. 4269578, covering the ENHANZE® rHuPH20 product obtained from Halozyme's ENHANZE® manufacturing methods that the Company provides to its current and future licensees. The new patent is licensed under all of Halozyme's ENHANZE® licenses. It will be validated in 37 European countries and expires on March 6, 2029.

"We are pleased to be able to raise our full year 2024 financial guidance and 5-year financial outlook, which now reflect the original royalty rate for DARZALEX SC in Europe from the granting of this new European patent, which is valid through March 6, 2029," said Dr. Helen Torley, president and chief executive officer of Halozyme.

Under the terms of Halozyme's ENHANZE® license with Janssen, the newly granted patent prevents the reduction in the royalty rate on sales of DARZALEX® SC in the European countries where it is validated until the patent expires. The new patent is not expected to have any impact to royalties under other ENHANZE® licenses with an issued or pending collaboration patent, as current royalty rates for these licenses already are expected to extend beyond expiration of the new patent. 

Based on the new European patent for ENHANZE®, the Company is raising its full year 2024 financial guidance and updating its 5-year financial outlook during its investor presentation.

For the full year 2024, the Company expects:

  • Total revenue of $935 million to $1,015 million, representing growth of 13% to 22% over 2023, primarily driven by increases in royalty revenue, collaboration revenue and growth in product sales from XYOSTED®.
  • Revenue from royalties of $520 million to $555 million, representing growth of 16% to 24% over 2023.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $555 million to $615 million, representing growth of 30% to 44% over 2023.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $3.65 to $4.05, representing growth of 32% to 46% over 2023. The Company's earnings per share guidance does not consider the impact of potential future share repurchases.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. The Company reports earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, and guidance with respect to those measures, in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company calculates non-GAAP diluted earnings per share excluding share-based compensation expense, amortization of debt discount, intangible asset amortization, transaction costs for business combinations, realized gains or losses on marketable security sales and certain adjustments to income tax expense. The Company calculates EBITDA excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company calculates adjusted EBITDA excluding transaction costs for business combinations. Reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures are included at the end of this press release. The Company does not provide reconciliations of forward-looking adjusted measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including adjustments that could be made for changes in contingent liabilities, share-based compensation expense and the effects of any discrete income tax items. The Company evaluates other items of income and expense on an individual basis for potential inclusion in the calculation of Non-GAAP financial measures and considers both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the item, including (i) its size and nature, (ii) whether or not it relates to the Company's ongoing business operations and (iii) whether or not the Company expects it to occur as part of the Company's normal business on a regular basis. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with 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 may in the future cease to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. The Company considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of the Company, exclusive of factors that do not directly affect what the Company considers to be its core operating performance, as well as unusual events. The non-GAAP measures also allow investors and analysts to make additional comparisons of the operating activities of the Company's core business over time and with respect to other companies, as well as assessing trends and future expectations. The Company uses non-GAAP financial information in assessing what it believes is a meaningful and comparable set of financial performance measures to evaluate operating trends, as well as in establishing portions of our performance-based incentive compensation programs.

Safe Harbor Statement

In addition to historical information, the statements set forth in this press release include forward-looking statements including, without limitation, statements concerning Halozyme's financial performance (including Halozyme's financial outlook for 2024 and five year longer term financial outlook) and expectations for total revenue, royalty and collaboration revenue, product sales, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP diluted earnings-per-share.  Forward-looking statements also include statements concerning the recent grant of Halozyme's European Patent No. 4269578 covering Halozyme's ENHANZE® drug delivery technology rHuPH20 product including the expected validation of the patent in thirty-seven European countries, the future expected expiration date of the patent, the expected impact the patent will have on Halozyme's current and future ENHANZE® licenses, including the expected prevention of the reduction in the royalty rate Halozyme receives under the Janssen license on sales of products co-formulated with ENHANZE® in the European countries where the patent is validated. 

These forward-looking statements are typically, but not always, identified through use of the words "believe," "expected," "pending," "enable," "may," "will," "could," "intends," "estimate," "anticipate," "plan," "predict," "probable," "potential," "possible," "should," "continue," and other words of similar meaning and involve risk and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ materially from the expectations contained in these forward-looking statements as a result of several factors, including unexpected levels of revenues, expenditures and costs,  unexpected results or delays in the validation of the recently issued European patent in European countries and termination of the European patent prior to the expected date of expiration.  These and other factors that may result in differences are discussed in greater detail in Halozyme's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Except as required by law, Halozyme undertakes no duty or obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events after the date of this press release.
