Legend Biotech Announces Preliminary Sales for CARVYKTI™ for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2022
Pursuant to the Collaboration and License Agreement dated as of December 21, 2017 between Legend Biotech Corporation (“Legend Biotech”) and Janssen Biotech, Inc. (“Janssen”),
on July 21, 2022, Legend Biotech announced that CARVYKTI™ generated approximately $24 million in net trade sales during the quarter ending June 30, 2022.
In accordance with Legend Biotech’s accounting policies and International Financial Reporting Standards, the net trade sales reported by Janssen will not be recognized as revenue, but rather Legend Biotech will record gross
profit from the net trade sales of CARVYKTI™ subject to the collaboration in Legend Biotech’s consolidated statement of operations.
This sale figure is based on information available to Legend Biotech as of the date of this Form 6-K, and the determination of the amount of any gross profit to be recorded in Legend Biotech’s consolidated statement of
operations is subject to completion by management of Legend Biotech of their financial statements as of and for the period ended June 30, 2022. There also can be no assurance that final
net trade sales for CARVYKTI™ will not differ from the amount disclosed herein, including as a result of review adjustments, and any such changes could be material. Legend Biotech’s independent registered public accountants have not audited,
reviewed or performed any procedures with respect to this data and accordingly do not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto. These results could change as a result of further review.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Statements in this report on Form 6-K about future expectations, plans and prospects, as well as any other statements regarding matters that are not historical facts, constitute “forward-looking statements” within
the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to CARVYKTI™, including Legend Biotech’s expectations for net trade sales and resulting gross profit of
CARVYKTI™. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions are intended to identify
forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors. Legend
Biotech’s expectations could be affected by, among other things, uncertainties involved in the development of new pharmaceutical products; unexpected clinical trial results, including as a result of additional analysis of existing clinical data or
unexpected new clinical data; unexpected regulatory actions or delays, including requests for additional safety and/or efficacy data or analysis of data, or government regulation generally; unexpected delays as a result of actions undertaken, or
failures to act, by our third party partners; uncertainties arising from challenges to Legend Biotech’s patent or other proprietary intellectual property protection, including the uncertainties involved in the U.S. litigation process; competition
in general; government, industry, and general public pricing and other political pressures; the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental and regulatory measures implemented in response to the evolving situation; as well as
the other factors discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of the Legend Biotech’s Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2022. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or
should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in this Form 6-K as anticipated, believed, estimated or expected. Any forward-looking statements contained in this Form 6-K speak only as of the
date of this Form 6-K. Legend Biotech specifically disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
