CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & BASEL, Switzerland & BEIJING

BeiGene, Ltd. (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160; SSE: 688235), a global biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing innovative medicines worldwide, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2022, recent business highlights, and anticipated upcoming milestones.

“I have never been more confident in BeiGene. We made terrific progress in the first quarter with our global commercial performance in the U.S., Europe, and in Asia, and we continue to build on our strategic competitive advantages, including breaking ground on our flagship U.S. manufacturing and clinical R&D campus at Princeton Innovation West in Hopewell, N.J.,” said John V. Oyler, Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO at BeiGene. “BRUKINSA and tislelizumab continue to validate our ability to run global clinical trials and bring impactful medicines to cancer patients. We announced long-term follow up data from our Phase 3 head-to-head global ALPINE trial in relapsed/refractory CLL, where BRUKINSA demonstrated superiority in overall response rate versus ibrutinib as assessed by an Independent Review Committee and continued to show lower rates of atrial fibrillation and flutter. Our tislelizumab program with Novartis has also progressed with positive data from RATIONALE 306, our global trial in 1L advanced esophageal cancer. We are well positioned to advance our pipeline and expand our global capabilities to meet the needs of patients around the world.”

Julia Wang, Chief Financial Officer, commented, “During the first quarter we saw product revenue grow meaningfully across our commercial portfolio and geographies, led by internally developed medicines, and we expect continued momentum based on approvals secured to date and upcoming milestones. We are well positioned financially with our strong capital position and look forward to our multiple upcoming catalysts.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Cash, Cash Equivalents, Restricted Cash, and Short-Term Investments were $6.3 billion as of March 31, 2022, compared to $6.6 billion as of December 31, 2021.

  • In the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used in operating activities was $236.6 million, primarily due to our net loss of $434.3 million, offset by a decrease in our net operating assets and liabilities of $122.1 million and by non-cash charges of $75.6 million; capital expenditures were $45.1 million; and cash used in financing activities was $11.3 million.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $306.6 million, compared to $605.9 million in the same period of 2021.

  • Product revenue totaled $261.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $106.1 million in the same period of 2021, including:

– Global sales of BRUKINSA of $104.3 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $22.1 million in the prior year period;

– Sales of tislelizumab in China of $87.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $48.9 million in the prior year period;

– Sales of Amgen in-licensed products in China of $29.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $14.5 million in the prior year period. Prior year period sales do not include sales of BLINCYTO® and KYPROLIS®, which were launched in China in August 2021 and January 2022, respectively; and

– Sales of BMS in-licensed products in China of $27.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $20.3 million in the prior year period.

  • Collaboration revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $45.1 million, resulting from partial recognition of the upfront payments from Novartis of $650.0 million related to the tislelizumab agreement and $300.0 million related to the ociperlimab agreement, which were entered into in the first quarter and fourth quarter of 2021, respectively. Collaboration revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $499.8 million, resulting from the recognition of revenue of a significant portion of the upfront payment from Novartis related to the tislelizumab agreement.

Expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $749.9 million, compared to $535.7 million in the same period of 2021.

  • Cost of Sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $65.2 million, compared to $32.7 million in the same period of 2021. Cost of sales increased primarily due to increased product sales of tislelizumab and BRUKINSA, as well as BLYNCYTO, which commenced in August 2021.
  • R&D Expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $389.9 million, compared to $320.7 million in the same period of 2021. The increase in R&D expenses was primarily attributable to increases in headcount and costs related to investment in our discovery and development activities, including our continued efforts to internalize research and clinical development activities, partially offset by lower fees paid to external CROs on clinical trials for tislelizumab, as well as decreased expense related to upfront fees for in-process R&D. Upfront fees related to in-process R&D for in-licensed assets totaled nil and $8.5 million in the first quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively. Employee share-based compensation expense also contributed to the overall increase in R&D expenses and was $30.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $21.9 million for the same period of 2021.
  • SG&A Expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $294.6 million, compared to $182.1 million in the same period of 2021. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily attributable to increased headcount, largely related to the expansion of our commercial teams, higher professional service fees and higher external commercial expenses, including selling and marketing, market access studies and promotional activities. The overall increase in SG&A expenses was also attributable to higher SG&A-related share-based compensation expense, which was $34.7 million and $23.9 million for the first quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively.
  • Net Loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was $434.3 million, compared to net income of $66.5 million in the prior year period, primarily due to lower collaboration revenue. For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, net loss per share was or $0.33 per share, and $4.24 per American Depositary Share (ADS). For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.06 and $0.05, respectively, and basic and diluted earnings per ADS were $0.73 and $0.69, respectively.

COVID-19 Impact and Response

We expect that the worldwide health crisis of COVID-19 will continue to have a negative impact on our operations, including commercial sales, regulatory interactions, inspections, filings, manufacturing, and clinical trial recruitment, participation, and data read outs. There remains uncertainty regarding the future impact of the pandemic both globally and specifically in China due to outbreaks and restrictions and potential impact on clinical, manufacturing and commercial operations. We are striving to minimize delays and disruptions, have put protocols and procedures in place, and continue to execute on our commercial, regulatory, manufacturing, and clinical development goals globally.
