Conference Call and Webcast Scheduled Today at 8:00 a.m. ET
WILMINGTON, Del. – February 13, 2024 – Incyte (Nasdaq:INCY) today reports 2023 fourth quarter financial results, provides 2024 financial guidance and provides a status update on the Company’s research and development portfolio.
"We delivered a strong 2023 with total net product and royalty revenues of $3.7 billion, increasing 14% versus 2022. In the fourth quarter, we achieved for the first time, a new milestone of $1 billion in total quarterly revenues, driven by the continued growth of Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) and the successful launch of Opzelura® (ruxolitinib) cream," said Hervé Hoppenot, Chief Executive Officer, Incyte. "Throughout 2023, we focused our R&D efforts on high potential programs and believe we are positioned to deliver more than ten high impact launches by 2030."
Key Product Sales Performance
Jakafi:
Net product revenues for the fourth quarter of 2023 of $695 million; 2023 full year net product revenues of $2.59 billion
Fourth quarter 2023 net product revenues grew 7% compared with the fourth quarter of 2022 and grew 8% for the full year 2023 when compared to 2022.
Fourth quarter revenues were negatively impacted by an increase in the number of Medicare Part D patients receiving free product and were positively impacted by an increase in channel inventory.
1


Opzelura:
Net product revenues for the fourth quarter of 2023 of $109 million; 2023 full year net product revenues of $338 million:
Net product revenues of $109 million grew 78% compared with the fourth quarter of 2022, driven by growth in patient demand, refills and expansion in payer coverage as the launch in atopic dermatitis (AD) and vitiligo continues. For the full-year, 2023 net product revenues grew 162% over the prior year to $338 million.
On January 31, 2024, Incyte received approval in France to promote and distribute Opzelura for vitiligo under a process called “Accès Direct.” This process is intended to allow for early access to a therapy while a final price is negotiated, which is expected to take up to twelve months. Once price reimbursement is determined, Incyte will begin recognizing revenue in France.
Key Recent Updates
In February 2024, Incyte entered into an asset purchase agreement with MorphoSys AG which gave Incyte exclusive global rights for tafasitamab, a humanized Fc-modified CD19-targeting immunotherapy marketed in the U.S. as Monjuvi® (tafasitamab-cxix) and outside of the U.S. as Minjuvi® (tafasitamab). Under the terms of the agreement, MorphoSys received a payment of $25 million from Incyte, and Incyte gained global development and commercialization rights for tafasitamab. Incyte will recognize revenue and cost for all U.S. commercialization and clinical development and MorphoSys will no longer be eligible to receive future milestone, profit split and royalty payments.
In January 2024, Incyte announced the primary endpoint was met in its randomized, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 study evaluating the safety and efficacy of ruxolitinib cream (Opzelura®) in adults with mild/moderate hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). At Week 16, patients receiving ruxolitinib cream 1.5% twice daily (BID) had significantly greater decreases from baseline versus placebo in total abscess and inflammatory nodule (AN) count, the primary endpoint of the study. The overall safety profile of ruxolitinib cream was consistent with previous data, and no new safety signals were observed. The Phase 2 data is anticipated to be presented at an upcoming scientific meeting in 2024. A Phase 3 study is currently being evaluated.
In January 2024, Incyte highlighted promising early clinical efficacy data for its selective inhibitor of CDK2 (INCB123667), which demonstrated its potential use as monotherapy or combination therapy for late-stage cancers. In a Phase 1 study of INCB123667, early clinical activity was observed with several partial responses (PR) achieved in patients with amplification/over expression of CCNE1, a cell cycle regulator and potential predictive biomarker. Tumor shrinkage was observed across multiple tumor types, including CCNE1 patients with ovarian cancer. The safety profile of for INCB123667 aligns with the mechanism of action. Additional data is expected to be presented in 2024.
In December 2023, in collaboration with Syndax Pharmaceuticals, the Biologics License Application (BLA) was submitted for axatilimab in chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) with approval anticipated in the second half of 2024. Plans are underway to initiate two combination trials with axatilimab in cGVHD in mid-2024, including a Phase 2 combination trial with ruxolitinib and a Phase 3 combination trial with steroids.
JAK2V617Fi (INCB160058), a potent and selective JAK2 pseudokinase domain binder, cleared the Investigational New Drug (IND) process with the FDA and a Phase 1 study is anticipated to initiate in the first half of 2024. INCB160058 has the potential to be a disease modifying therapy and to address a significant patient population. The JAK2 mutation is found in 55% of primary myelofibrosis, 95% of polycythemia vera and 60% of essential thrombocythemia patients.
A Phase 1 study of KRASG12D (INCB161734) in patients with advanced metastatic solid tumors with a KRAS G12D mutation was recently initiated and the first patient was dosed. KRAS mutations are one of the most common genetic abnormalities in cancer, especially pancreatic and colorectal cancers.
In December 2023, Incyte received FDA feedback and agreed to the path forward for once daily (QD) ruxolitinib (XR). The potential approval of QD ruxolitinib (XR) is anticipated in approximately two years.

Additional Pipeline Updates
Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) and Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD) – key highlights
In December 2023, Incyte presented more than 40 hematology and oncology abstracts including a Plenary Scientific Session at the 2023 ASH Annual Meeting. The plenary presentation featured the full data from AGAVE-201 evaluating axatilimab, an anti-CSFR-1R monoclonal antibody, in patients with cGVHD. Other key highlights included additional data from the Phase 1/2 Study of zilurgisertib (INCB000928), Phase 1 data of BETi (INCB057643) and preclinical data of JAK2V617Fi (INCB160058).
Combination trials of ruxolitinib twice daily (BID) with zilurgisertib (INCB000928) and BETi (INCB057643) are ongoing and continue to enroll. Incyte anticipates initiating a Phase 3 study for BETi in the second half of 2024 and achieving clinical proof-of-concept for zilurgisertib by mid-2024.
The Phase 1 study evaluating the mCALR monoclonal antibody (INCA033989) is ongoing and enrolling patients.

2023 Fourth Quarter and Year-end Financial Results
The financial measures presented in this press release for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 have been prepared by the Company in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), unless otherwise identified as a Non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that Non-GAAP information is useful for investors, when considered in conjunction with Incyte’s GAAP disclosures. Management uses such information internally and externally for establishing budgets, operating goals and financial planning purposes. These metrics are also used to manage the Company’s business and monitor performance. The Company adjusts, where appropriate, for expenses in order to reflect the Company’s core operations. The Company believes these adjustments are useful to investors by providing an enhanced understanding of the financial performance of the Company’s core operations. The metrics have been adopted to align the Company with disclosures provided by industry peers.
Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used in conjunction with and to supplement Incyte’s operating results as reported under GAAP. Non-GAAP measures may be defined and calculated differently by other companies in our industry.
As changes in exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons, Management believes the presentation of certain revenue results on a constant currency basis in addition to reported results helps improve investors’ ability to understand its operating results and evaluate its performance in comparison to prior periods. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period over period. The Company calculates constant currency by calculating current year results using prior year foreign currency exchange rates and generally refers to such amounts calculated on a constant currency basis as excluding the impact of foreign exchange or being on a constant currency basis. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with GAAP. Results on a constant currency basis, as the Company presents them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measures of performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

Cost of product revenues GAAP and Non-GAAP cost of product revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 increased 18% and 20%, respectively, and for the year ended December 31, 2023 increased 23% and 26% compared to the same periods in 2022 due to growth in net product revenues and inventory reserves for obsolescence.
Research and development expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP research and development expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 decreased 11% and 13%, respectively, and for the year ended December 31, 2023 increased 3% and 2%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2022. The decrease for the quarter was primarily due to the $70 million upfront payment made as part of the Villaris asset acquisition during the fourth quarter of 2022, offset in part by the $20 million development milestone payment to former Villaris stockholders in the fourth quarter of 2023. The increase for the full year was primarily due to continued investment in our late stage development assets.
Selling, general and administrative expenses GAAP and Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 increased 8% and 7%, respectively, and for the year ended December 31, 2023 increased 16% and 15%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2022, primarily due to expenses related to promotional activities to support the launch of Opzelura for the treatment of vitiligo.
Other Financial Information
Change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration The change in fair value of contingent consideration during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023, compared to the same periods in 2022, was due primarily to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates impacting future revenue projections of Iclusig.
