United Therapeutics Corporation (Nasdaq: UTHR), a public benefit corporation, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. Total revenues in the second quarter of 2023 grew 28% year-over-year to $596.5 million, compared to $466.9 million in the second quarter of 2022.

“I’m thrilled that United Therapeutics continues to report double-digit revenue growth and our highest quarterly revenue ever,” said Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer. “We expect this growth trajectory to continue with our current business as we expect to reach a $4 billion annual revenue run rate by mid-decade. Beyond that we expect continued waves of growth with an additional doubling of our revenue from the potential launch of Tyvaso in pulmonary fibrosis and ralinepag in pulmonary arterial hypertension, and then yet another doubling of our revenue with the potential for an unlimited supply of tolerable, transplantable organs in the next decade.”

“Tyvaso and Orenitram continue to drive our revenue performance with record revenues and the highest number of patients on both therapies,” said Michael Benkowitz, President and Chief Operating Officer. “Feedback on Tyvaso DPI has been overwhelmingly positive, and its convenience and ease of use have revolutionized the way patients with pulmonary hypertension manage their disease.”

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 $129.2 million, or 31%, for the second quarter of 2023, as compared to the second quarter of 2022. The growth in Tyvaso revenues resulted primarily from an increase in quantities sold to our domestic distributors of $112.0 million. $96.9 million of this growth resulted from an increased number of patients following the commercial launch 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 remaining increase in quantities sold of $15.1 million resulted from increased inventory levels held by our distributors as they began to build their inventory to contractually-required inventory levels and in response to increased patient demand. We anticipate continued fluctuations in specialty pharmacy inventory levels as we continue to adjust production schedules and expand capacity to meet the growing demand for Tyvaso DPI.

External research and development primarily includes fees paid to third parties (such as clinical trial sites, contract research organizations, and contract laboratories) for preclinical and clinical studies and payments to third-party contract manufacturers before FDA approval of the relevant product.

(2)

Internal research and development primarily includes salary-related expenses for research and development functions, internal costs to manufacture product candidates before FDA approval, and internal facilities-related expenses, including depreciation, related to research and development activities.

(3)

Refer to Share-based compensation below.

(4)

Impairments primarily includes impairment charges to write down the carrying value of in-process research and development and of certain property, plant, and equipment as a result of research and development activities. There were no impairment charges during the three months ended June 30, 2023 and June 30, 2022.

(5)

Other primarily includes upfront fees and milestone payments to third parties under license agreements related to development-stage products and adjustments to the fair value of our contingent consideration obligations.

Research and development expense, excluding share-based compensation. Research and development expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023 increased as compared to the same period in 2022, primarily due to: (1) increased expenditures related to the TETON 1 and TETON 2 clinical studies of nebulized Tyvaso in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; and (2) increased expenditures related to ralinepag clinical studies; partially offset by a decrease in Tyvaso DPI research and development costs following FDA approval of the product in May 2022.

General and administrative, excluding share-based compensation. General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023 increased as compared to the same period in 2022, primarily due to: (1) an increase in sponsorships and grants; (2) an increase in personnel expense due to growth in headcount; (3) an increase in branded prescription drug fee expense associated with sales of Tyvaso; and (4) an impairment charge related to property, plant, and equipment; partially offset by decreased expenditures for legal services.

The decrease in share-based compensation expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022, was primarily due to an increase in STAP benefit driven by a one percent decrease in our stock price for the three months ended June 30, 2023, as compared to a 31 percent increase in our stock price for the same period in 2022.

Other expense, net. The change in other expense, net for the three months ended June 30, 2023, as compared to the same period in 2022, was primarily due to net unrealized losses on equity securities.

Income tax expense. Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 was $76.0 million and $34.6 million, respectively. Our effective income tax rate was 23 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.
