United Therapeutics Corporation (Nasdaq: UTHR), a public benefit corporation, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. Total revenues in the first quarter of 2023 grew 10% year-over-year to $506.9 million, compared to $461.9 million in the first quarter of 2022.

“The hard work and determination of our over 1,000 Unitherians during the first quarter of this year allowed us to reach over $500 million in revenue for the second quarter ever,” said Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer. “And to sustain our mission to help patients in need, our clinical team continues to progress our four registration studies in progress: the two TETON studies of Tyvaso in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the ADVANCE OUTCOMES study of ralinepag in pulmonary arterial hypertension, and the clinical study of our CLES ex vivo lung perfusion technology.”

“We are extremely pleased with the underlying strength of our Tyvaso franchise, highlighted by record referrals and starts during the quarter and net patient additions in line with prior quarters,” said Michael Benkowitz, President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our other core products also performed well, led by Orenitram which achieved record revenues in the first quarter.”

Net product sales include both the drug product and the respective inhalation devices for both nebulized Tyvaso Inhalation Solution and the dry powder version known as Tyvaso DPI®.

Net product sales include sales of infusion devices, such as the Remunity® Pump.

Net product sales from our treprostinil-based products (Tyvaso, Remodulin, and Orenitram) grew by $61.5 million, or 16%, for the first quarter of 2023, as compared to the first quarter of 2022. The growth in Tyvaso revenues resulted primarily from an increase in quantities sold. The increase in quantities sold was driven by our launch of sales of Tyvaso DPI in June 2022 and continued growth in the number of patients following the Tyvaso label expansion in March 2021 to include the treatment of pulmonary hypertension associated with interstitial lung disease.

The decrease in share-based compensation benefit for the three months ended March 31, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022, was primarily due to: (1) an increase in restricted stock unit expense driven by an increase in the number of awards granted and remaining outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022; and (2) a decrease in STAP benefit driven by a 19 percent decrease in our stock price and fewer awards remaining outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022.

Other (expense) income, net. The change in other (expense) income, net for the three months ended March 31, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022, was primarily due to net unrealized gains and losses on equity securities.

Income tax expense. Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 was $51.0 million and $68.8 million, respectively. Our effective income tax rate (ETR) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 was 17 percent and 22 percent, respectively. Our ETR for the three months ended March 31, 2023 decreased compared to our ETR for the three months ended March 31, 2022 primarily due to increased excess tax benefits from share-based compensation.
