AVEO Reports 2012 Financial Results and Highlights Recent Accomplishments

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

AVEO Oncology (NASDAQ: AVEO) today reported consolidated 2012 financial results and reviewed key recent accomplishments.

"We continue to make significant progress with tivozanib, including reporting the final overall survival results from TIVO-1, receiving the FDA's acceptance of the NDA submission and expanding tivozanib clinical development into patients with triple negative breast cancer," said Tuan Ha-Ngoc, president and chief executive officer of AVEO. "On the heels of our recent financing, we are continuing to build out our commercial infrastructure and remain focused on preparing for the potential launch of tivozanib in advanced RCC in the second half of 2013."

Full Year 2012 Financial Results

• Total collaboration revenue for 2012 was approximately $19.3 million compared with $164.8 million for 2011. Revenue in 2012 primarily consisted of a $15.0 million milestone from Astellas recognized upon the acceptance of AVEO's NDA filing. The decrease compared to 2011 is primarily due to revenue recognized in conjunction with the signing of AVEO's collaboration agreement with Astellas, as well as revenue from AVEO's collaboration agreements with OSI, Centocor, and Biogen that did not recur during 2012.

• Research and development (R&D) expense for 2012 was $91.4 million compared with $101.7 million for 2011. The decrease in R&D expense was primarily due to a decrease in licensing costs, largely related to a decrease in payments to Kyowa Hakko Kirin, a decrease in manufacturing costs for ficlatuzumab and a decrease in clinical trial costs. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in personnel-related expenses.

• General and administrative (G&A) expense for 2012 was $36.9 million compared with $29.2 million for 2011. The increase in G&A expense was primarily driven by an increase in personnel-related expenses, expenses related to pre-commercialization activities for tivozanib, and an increase in rent expense, largely related to AVEO's future headquarters.

• Restructuring expense for 2012 was $2.6 million, with no corresponding expense for 2011. The restructuring expense related to the company's strategic restructuring, which the company announced on October 30, 2012.

• Net loss for 2012 was $114.4 million, or basic and diluted net loss per share of $2.64, compared with net income of $30.6 million, or basic and diluted net income per share of $0.77 and $0.74, respectively, for 2011.

• AVEO ended 2012 with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $160.6 million.

Financial Guidance

Based on current operating plans, AVEO expects to end 2013 with approximately $60 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, and anticipates that this capital is sufficient to fund its operations into the second quarter of 2014.

Key Recent Developments

  • Reported Final Overall Survival Results from TIVO-1 Trial: AVEO and Astellas yesterday announced the final overall survival data from TIVO-1 (Tivozanib Versus sOrafenib in 1st line advanced RCC), a global, randomized, Phase 3, superiority clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of tivozanib compared to sorafenib in 517 patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). These data will be reviewed in more detail by AVEO management during the company's conference call and webcast today at 10:00 a.m. (ET), and will be presented on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at the 2013 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU), abstract number 350.
  • Completed public offering raising total net proceeds of approximately $53.8 million: In January 2013, AVEO completed an underwritten public offering of 7,667,050 shares of common stock, comprised of 6,667,000 shares of common stock initially offered and an additional 1,000,050 shares of common stock sold pursuant to the underwriters' exercise of their over-allotment option, at a price to the public of $7.50 per share. Aggregate net proceeds to the company were approximately $53.8 million.
  • Received the FDA's Acceptance for Filing the New Drug Application (NDA) for Tivozanib: In November 2012, AVEO and Astellas announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted for filing the NDA for tivozanib with the proposed indication for the treatment of patients with advanced RCC. According to the timelines established by the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA), the review of the NDA is expected to be complete by July 28, 2013.
  • Initiated BATON-BC Phase 2 Trial of Tivozanib in Patients with Triple Negative Breast Cancer: In December 2012, AVEO and Astellas announced the initiation of patient enrollment in a randomized, double-blind, multicenter Phase 2 clinical trial, called BATON-BC, evaluating the efficacy of tivozanib in combination with paclitaxel compared to placebo in combination with paclitaxel in patients with locally recurrent or metastatic triple negative breast cancer who have received no prior systemic therapy for advanced or metastatic breast cancer. BATON-BC is the third trial to be initiated as part of the BATON (Biomarker Assessment of Tivozanib in ON (News - Alert)cology) clinical development program, which includes ongoing Phase 2 trials in advanced metastatic colorectal cancer and advanced RCC. Data from these trials is expected to be available in 2014.
