MorphoSys Reports Preliminary Q3 2023 Monjuvi U.S. Sales and Gross Margin, and Updates Financial Guidance for 2023
MorphoSys AG (FSE: MOR; NASDAQ: MOR) today reported preliminary Monjuvi® U.S. Net Product Sales and Gross Margin for the third quarter of 2023 and provided an update to its financial guidance for 2023.
Preliminary Monjuvi® (tafasitamab-cxix) U.S. Net Product Sales are US$ 23.4 million (€ 21.5 million) for the third quarter of 2023 and US$ 67.8 million (€ 62.6 million) for the first nine months of 2023, a 5% and 6% increase from the same periods in 2022, respectively (US$ 22.2 million in Q3 2022 and US$ 64.1 million in the first nine months of 2022). Preliminary Gross Margin for Monjuvi U.S. Net Product Sales for Q3 2023 is 65%, due to the recognition of one-time write-offs for raw material used in the production of Monjuvi.
For the full year of 2023, MorphoSys now expects Monjuvi U.S. Net Product Sales to be US$ 85 to US$ 95 million (previously: US$ 80 to US$ 95 million) and Gross Margin for Monjuvi U.S. Net Product Sales to be approximately 75% (previously: 75% to 80%). All other aspects of the guidance for 2023 remain unchanged.
“Sales of Monjuvi continue to be on track for it’s approved indication in relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and give us confidence to narrow our guidance target,” said Jean-Paul Kress, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of MorphoSys. “We remain in a solid financial position and continue to be highly judicious with our expenses even as we progress our phase 3 trials, including preparations for the pivotal MANIFEST-2 trial that will read out later this year.”
