Recent Events

AbbVie, in cooperation with Neurocrine Biosciences, announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, under Priority Review, ORILISSA (elagolix) for the management of moderate to severe pain associated with endometriosis. ORILISSA represents the first FDA-approved oral treatment for the management of moderate to severe pain associated with endometriosis in over a decade and is expected to be available in U.S. retail pharmacies in early August 2018.

At the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting, AbbVie, in cooperation with Neurocrine Biosciences, presented new data highlighting the company’s research in endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Presentations for elagolix included long-term safety and efficacy data from two extension Phase 3 studies, as well as new data highlighting rescue analgesic use, fatigue scores, and pain burden from pivotal Phase 3 studies of elagolix in women with moderate to severe pain associated with endometriosis. New data from a Phase 2b study highlighting the impact of elagolix on productivity in women with uterine fibroids was also presented.

Recent Events (continued)

AbbVie announced FDA approval, under Priority Review, of VENCLEXTA in combination with rituximab as a treatment for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), with or without 17p deletion, who have received at least one prior therapy. The approval is based on data from the Phase 3 MURANO trial, which demonstrated a significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) for relapsed/refractory (R/R) CLL patients, reducing the risk of disease progression or death by 81 percent when compared to bendamustine in combination with rituximab, a standard of care chemoimmunotherapy regimen. The FDA also approved expansion of the indication of VENCLEXTA as monotherapy for CLL or SLL patients, with or without 17p deletion, who have received one prior therapy. Outside of the U.S., regulatory submissions to and reviews with health authorities are underway. VENCLEXTA is being developed by AbbVie and Roche; it is jointly commercialized by AbbVie and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, in the U.S. and by AbbVie outside of the U.S.

AbbVie announced submission of a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) to the FDA for VENCLEXTA in combination with a hypomethylating agent (HMA) or in combination with low dose cytarabine (LDAC) for the treatment of newly diagnosed patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are ineligible for intensive chemotherapy. VENCLEXTA has received two Breakthrough Therapy Designations from the FDA for combination treatments of patients with untreated AML not eligible for standard induction chemotherapy.

At the European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Congress, AbbVie presented new data from several investigational studies of VENCLEXTA as monotherapy or in combination for the management of a number of difficult-to-treat blood cancers. Multiple studies investigating VENCLEXTA in CLL, AML, multiple myeloma (MM), and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) were presented, including results from a new analysis of undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD) rates from the Phase 3 MURANO trial of VENCLEXTA in combination with rituximab in patients with R/R CLL.

At the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), AbbVie presented data from studies evaluating IMBRUVICA (ibrutinib) and VENCLEXTA across multiple hematologic malignancies, including positive data from the Phase 2 CAPTIVATE study evaluating IMBRUVICA in combination with VENCLEXTA in previously-untreated CLL/SLL patients. Also featured at ASCO were data from late-stage investigational products, including rovalpituzumab tesirine (Rova-T), depatuxizumab mafodotin (Depatux-M) and veliparib, as well as data from early-stage investigational compounds, including ABBV-075 (Mivebresib) and ABT-165.

AbbVie announced the FDA has accepted for Priority Review a supplemental NDA for IMBRUVICA in combination with rituximab as a new treatment option for Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM), a rare and incurable form of blood cancer. The filing is based on data from the Phase 3 iNNOVATE study, which demonstrated a significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) with IMBRUVICA plus rituximab compared to rituximab alone. Patients taking IMBRUVICA plus rituximab also experienced an 80 percent reduction in relative risk of disease progression or death than those only treated with rituximab. If approved, the sNDA would expand the prescribing information of IMBRUVICA in WM beyond its current approved use as a single agent for all lines of therapy to include combination use with rituximab. Data from the Phase 3 iNNOVATE study was featured as an oral presentation at ASCO. IMBRUVICA is jointly developed and commercialized with Janssen Biotech, Inc.

AbbVie announced positive top-line results from the Phase 3 iLLUMINATE trial, which evaluated IMBRUVICA in combination with obinutuzumab in previously untreated CLL/SLL patients. The study met its primary endpoint for a clinically and statistically significant difference in PFS for patients treated with IMBRUVICA plus obinutuzumab versus those who received chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab. Regulatory submissions to health authorities are planned for the second half of 2018 based on iLLUMINATE results for this chemotherapy-free CD20 combination in first-line CLL.

Recent Events (continued)

AbbVie announced topline results from the Phase 3 PHOENIX trial (DBL3001) evaluating the investigational use of IMBRUVICA in the treatment of newly diagnosed non-Germinal Center B-cell (non-GCB) subtype of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The DBL3001 study evaluated the addition of IMBRUVICA to a chemotherapy regimen consisting of five different agents used in combination - rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) - versus R-CHOP plus placebo. The DBL3001 study targeted a subtype of DLBCL disease that typically has poorer treatment outcomes. At the conclusion of the study, data collected found that IMBRUVICA plus R-CHOP, was not superior to R-CHOP alone, and that the study did not meet its primary endpoint of improving event-free survival (EFS) in the targeted patient population. Full results from this study will be submitted for presentation at a future medical meeting.

AbbVie announced positive top-line results from the Phase 3 SELECT-EARLY trial, which evaluated the company's investigational oral JAK1-selective inhibitor, upadacitinib, as a monotherapy treatment compared to methotrexate (MTX) monotherapy in adult patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who were MTX-naïve. The results showed that both once-daily doses of upadacitinib monotherapy (15mg and 30mg) met the primary endpoints of ACR50 at week 12 and clinical remission at week 24 versus MTX monotherapy. Additionally, all ranked secondary endpoints were met with both doses. Both doses of upadacitinib monotherapy also significantly inhibited radiographic progression (mTSS) from baseline at week 24 compared to MTX. The safety profile of upadacitinib was consistent with previously reported Phase 3 SELECT trials and Phase 2 studies, with no new safety signals detected. The company expects to submit regulatory applications in the fourth quarter of 2018.

AbbVie presented new patient-reported outcome data at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR) from three Phase 3 trials evaluating upadacitinib in adult patients with moderate to severe RA. New data highlighted improvements in pain, physical function and morning joint stiffness after 12 weeks of treatment with upadacitinib (15 mg and 30 mg, once-daily) in SELECT-NEXT and SELECT-BEYOND and after 14 weeks of treatment in SELECT-MONOTHERAPY. Additionally, improvements were reported in fatigue and work instability in SELECT-NEXT and patients' physical component of health-related quality of life in SELECT-NEXT and SELECT-BEYOND at 12 weeks. In SELECT-MONOTHERAPY, upadacitinib monotherapy demonstrated improvements in patients' physical function and health-related quality of life, as well as reductions in the duration of morning joint stiffness compared to patients receiving methotrexate.

AbbVie submitted a Biologics License Application (BLA) to the FDA and a marketing authorization application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for risankizumab for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. The BLA and MAA are supported by data from the global risankizumab Phase 3 psoriasis program evaluating more than 2,000 patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis across four pivotal Phase 3 studies: ultIMMa-1, ultIMMa-2, IMMhance and IMMvent. Risankizumab is being developed in collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim.

AbbVie announced a collaboration with Calibr, a nonprofit drug discovery division of Scripps Research, to develop T-cell therapies aimed primarily at cancer. Calibr's novel cell therapy program is designed to enhance safety, versatility and efficacy through a proprietary modular "switchable" CAR-T cell that uses antibody-based switch molecules to control the activation and antigen specificity of CAR-T cells. Calibr's proprietary technology may enable the development of universal CAR-T-based treatments across several types of hematological and solid tumor indications. This collaboration broadens AbbVie's oncology research to access advanced precision medicine technology to expand the development of potentially life-changing treatments for patients with cancer.

Recent Events (continued)

AbbVie announced an extension of its collaboration with Calico, an Alphabet-backed life sciences company, to discover, develop and bring to market new therapies for patients with age-related diseases, including neurodegeneration and cancer. Working together with AbbVie, Calico is pursuing discovery-stage research and development. AbbVie provides scientific and clinical development support and will lend its commercial expertise to lead future development and commercialization activities. Since 2014, the collaboration between the two companies has produced more than two dozen early-stage programs addressing disease states across oncology and neuroscience and has yielded new insights into the biology of aging.

AbbVie announced patent license agreements with Mylan over its proposed biosimilar adalimumab product. Under the terms of the agreements, AbbVie will grant Mylan a non-exclusive license on specified dates to AbbVie’s intellectual property relating to HUMIRA in the United States and in various other countries around the world in which AbbVie has intellectual property, excluding Europe. Mylan’s U.S. license will begin on July 31, 2023. Mylan will pay royalties to AbbVie for licensing its HUMIRA patents once its biosimilar product is launched.

AbbVie made charitable contributions totaling $120 million in the second quarter. These donations are part of AbbVie’s plan to make an additional $350 million in charitable contributions to U.S. not-for-profit organizations in 2018. The contributions will provide AbbVie with the opportunity to support charities creating long-term impact in communities in need, including Puerto Rico, North Chicago and cities across America.

Full-Year 2018 Outlook
 
AbbVie is updating its GAAP diluted EPS guidance for the full-year 2018 to $6.47 to $6.57. AbbVie is raising its adjusted EPS guidance range for the full-year 2018 from $7.66 to $7.76 to $7.76 to $7.86. The midpoint of this guidance reflects year-over-year growth of 39.5 percent. The company’s 2018 adjusted diluted EPS guidance excludes $1.29 per share of intangible asset amortization expense, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, a one-time net tax benefit related to the timing of the phase in of provisions of the U.S. tax reform legislation on certain subsidiaries, and other specified items.

AbbVie’s adjusted EPS guidance range reflects an effective tax rate approaching 9 percent in 2018. In 2018, AbbVie will experience a one-time net tax benefit related to the timing of the phase in of provisions of the new legislation on certain subsidiaries. This benefit has been excluded from the adjusted EPS guidance, and included in the GAAP guidance range.

AbbVie continues to anticipate the company’s adjusted effective tax rate to increase to 13 percent over the next five years as a result of increased domestic income and investment.
