Grupo Pharma Mar (PHM.MC) today announced its financial and corporate results for the first nine months of 2016. The PharmaMar Group reported €131.1 million in total net sales in the first nine months of 2016, a 4.7% increase year-on-year. Revenues increased in all business areas of the company. Net commercial sales of Yondelis® (excluding raw material sales) increased by 9.7%. Including raw materials, total net sales of Yondelis® amounted to €67 million in the first nine months (+3%). Royalty revenues amounted to €4.2 million in the period. This increase in revenues, in both sales (+€5.9 million) and royalties (+€3.2 million), broadly offset both the effect of the termination of the 2001 agreement with Janssen, under which PharmaMar collected a final payment of €8.8 million in the first nine months of 2015, and the milestone payment collected for the approval of Yondelis in Japan, which amounted to €10.8 million in the first nine months of 2015.

Net sales in the Consumer Chemicals division increased by 6.8% in the first nine months of 2016, to €59.2 million.

Research and development expenditure increased by 33% in the period, to €57.4 million. Oncology R&D accounted for €53 million. That increase was due mainly to the advanced status of ongoing clinical trials, including the Phase III trial with PM1183 in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, the Phase III trial in small-cell lung cancer with that same compound, and the Phase III trial with Aplidin in multiple myeloma, for which a registration dossier has now been presented, as well as other pre-clinical and clinical trials in a range of compounds. The increase in R&D spending is the main reason for group EBITDA being negative (-€5.6 million) in the first nine months of 2016, contrasting with €16.6 million in the same period last year, when the company also collected €22.2 million under licensing and other agreements that did not recur in 2016.

As a result, the Group reported a net attributable loss of -€16.6 million in the first nine months of 2016, compared with €6.6 million net profit in the same period of 2015.
