Product Sales

The increase in product sales during the first quarter of 2013 was due primarily to Gilead's antiviral franchise, resulting from increased sales of Complera®/Eviplera®(emtricitabine 200 mg/rilpivirine 25 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg) and the launch of Stribild® (elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg) in the third quarter of 2012.

Antiviral Product Sales

Antiviral product sales increased 7 percent to $2.06 billion for the first quarter of 2013, up from $1.93 billion for the first quarter of 2012, reflecting sales growth of 8 percent in Europe and 7 percent in the U.S. The increase reflects strong underlying demand, specifically for Complera/Eviplera and Stribild, partially offset by a decrease in sales of Truvada® (emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate).

Operating Expenses and Other

Non-GAAP research and development (R&D) expenses increased due to Gilead's continued investment in its product pipeline, particularly in liver disease and oncology. Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased primarily due to expenses to support the ongoing growth of Gilead's business.

Interest expense decreased primarily due to the repayment of bank debt issued in connection with the acquisition of Pharmasset Inc. Gilead repaid bank debt totaling$1.40 billion in 2012. The change in other income (expense), net was due primarily to a $40.1 million loss during the first quarter of 2012 resulting from the Greek government's debt restructuring.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Marketable Securities

Corporate Highlights

In February, Gilead announced the completion of its acquisition of YM, a publicly-held drug development company that was primarily focused on advancing its lead product candidate momelotinib (formally known as CYT387), an orally administered, once-daily, selective inhibitor of the Janus kinase (JAK) family. The acquisition of YM represents an opportunity to add a complementary clinical program in the area of hematologic cancers to our growing oncology portfolio.

Also in February, Gilead announced that it reached an agreement in principle withTeva Pharmaceuticals to settle the ongoing patent litigation concerning the patents protecting Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate), a treatment for HIV infection and chronic hepatitis B infection. Under the terms of the settlement, Teva will be allowed to launch a generic version of Viread on December 15, 2017.

Product & Pipeline Update

Antiviral Program

In January, Gilead announced:

  • Full clinical trial results from one cohort of the ongoing Phase 2 ELECTRON study examining a 12-week course of all-oral therapy with sofosbuvir (formerly GS-7977), ledipasvir (formerly GS-5885) and ribavirin (RBV) among genotype 1 hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients who had previously failed to respond to an interferon (IFN)-containing regimen, or "null responders." The data confirmed that all patients in this cohort achieved a sustained virologic response four weeks (SVR4) after stopping therapy.
  • Initiation of the Phase 3 ION-1 study evaluating the fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir/ledipasvir with and without RBV for 12 or 24 weeks in treatment-naïve genotype 1 patients.
  • Screening of patients for the second Phase 3 ION-2 study evaluating the fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir/ledipasvir with RBV for 12 weeks and with and without RBV for 24 weeks of therapy in treatment-experienced genotype 1 HCV patients.
  • Enrollment of patients in LONESTAR, a Phase 2 study evaluating sofosbuvir/ledipasvir for 12 weeks and sofosbuvir/ledipasvir with and without RBV for eight weeks in genotype 1 treatment-naïve patients. Two additional arms in this trial will evaluate this combination with and without RBV for 12 weeks in treatment-experienced genotype 1 patients who had previously received a protease inhibitor-containing regimen.
  • Initiation of two Phase 3 clinical trials (Study 104 and 111) evaluating a single tablet regimen containing tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in treatment-naïve adults.

In February, Gilead announced:

  • Topline results from the Phase 3 FISSION study, evaluating therapy with either a 12-week course of sofosbuvir plus RBV or standard of care with 24 weeks of treatment with pegylated interferon (peg-IFN) plus RBV in genotype 2 or 3 HCV patients. The study met its primary efficacy endpoint of non-inferiority of sofosbuvir plus RBV to peg-IFN plus RBV, with 67 percent of patients achieving SVR in the sofosbuvir plus RBV treatment group versus 67 percent in the peg-IFN plus RBV treatment group.
  • Topline results from the Phase 3 NEUTRINO study, evaluating a 12-week course of therapy with sofosbuvir, RBV and peg-IFN in genotype 1, 4, 5 or 6 HCV patients. This study met its primary efficacy endpoint of superiority compared to a predefined historic control SVR rate of 60 percent, with 90 percent of patients achieving a sustained virologic response 12 weeks after completing therapy.
  • Topline results from the Phase 3 FUSION study evaluating 12- and 16-week courses of therapy with the once-daily sofosbuvir plus RBV in treatment-experienced patients with genotype 2 or 3 chronic HCV infection. The study met its primary efficacy endpoint of superiority compared to a predefined historic control SVR rate of 25 percent.

In March, Gilead announced:

  • Results from a 24-week Phase 2 study (Study 102) evaluating a once-daily single tablet regimen containing TAF for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. A regimen of TAF 10 mg/elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg was found to be similar to Stribild based on the percentage of patients with HIV RNA levels less than 50 copies/mL at 24 weeks of treatment.
  • The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use, the scientific committee of the European Medicines Agency, adopted a positive opinion on the company's Marketing Authorisation Application for the once-daily, single tablet regimen Stribild for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adult patients who are antiretroviral-naïve or are infected with HIV-1 without known mutations associated with resistance to any of the three antiretroviral agents in Stribild.
  • An update on the Phase 3 ION-1 study evaluating a once-daily fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir/ledipasvir with and without RBV for 12 or 24 weeks in treatment naïve genotype 1 HCV patients. A planned review by the study's Data and Safety Monitoring Board of safety data from patients in all four arms and of SVR4 rates from patients in the two 12-week duration arms concluded that the trial should continue without modification. This recommendation was based upon the observed SVR4 rates exceeding the predefined threshold and the absence of significant safety issues. Enrollment of the remaining patients in ION-1 is underway.
  • Completion of enrollment in the second Phase 3 ION-2 study evaluating the fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir/ledipasvir with RBV for 12 weeks, and with and without RBV for 24 weeks, in treatment-experienced genotype 1 HCV patients.

Cardiovascular Program

In March, Gilead announced data from the Phase 4 TERISA (Type 2 Diabetes Evaluation of Ranolazine In Subjects With Chronic Stable Angina) study, which demonstrated that the addition of ranolazine to background antianginal therapy in chronic angina patients with type 2 diabetes significantly reduced the frequency of weekly angina episodes compared to background antianginal therapy alone.
