Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC) today provided a corporate update as well as preliminary unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial results, 2024 guidance and financial outlook. A supplemental presentation can also be found on the company’s investor relations website.

"We are very pleased with the continued growth and adoption of our innovative product portfolio which reaffirms our conviction in our blockbuster opportunity in aesthetics,” said Mark J. Foley, Chief Executive Officer of Revance. “Importantly, the new pricing strategy for DAXXIFY continues to deliver encouraging results while garnering strong engagement and support from injectors. Specifically, DAXXIFY volume sold in Q4 increased 22% on a quarter-over-quarter basis, with more than two-thirds of the revenue coming from reordering accounts. We remain very encouraged by the trends that we are seeing, which we believe reflect growing injector confidence in the product’s duration, onset, and appearance of improved skin quality. Our strong base of over 3,000 DAXXIFY accounts as of the end of Q4 provides us with significant runway to increase adoption. Combined with the continued growth of the RHA Collection, we believe we are well positioned to achieve at least $280 million in DAXXIFY and RHA sales in 2024.”

Foley continued, “In 2024, we remain focused on partnering with healthcare providers while executing on our aesthetics and therapeutics priorities. Our disciplined capital allocation supports these objectives through focused investments in our aesthetics and therapeutics businesses and our ability to achieve positive Adjusted EBITDA in 2025. I’d like to thank the entire Revance team for their continued hard work and dedication and I look forward to a promising year ahead.

“We also announced today that Dustin Sjuts will be stepping down from his role as President, effective March 31, 2024. On behalf of the Board and management, I would like to thank him for his significant contributions to the company over the past six years serving in various leadership capacities. He led Revance’s transition from clinical stage to commercial, including supporting key regulatory milestones for DAXXIFY in aesthetics and therapeutics, establishing our sales infrastructure while navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and leading the launch of our aesthetics portfolio. We wish Dustin the best in his new endeavors.”

Corporate Updates and Preliminary Q4 and FY 2023 Financial Results:

  • DAXXIFY (Aesthetics):

    • Total preliminary unaudited revenue from the first five quarters of launch for DAXXIFY is expected to be $95 million, surpassing the combined sales of the first five quarters of launch for the last three neuromodulators to enter the market.
    • Q4 DAXXIFY volume sold increased 22% over Q3, with revenue offset by a lower average selling price.
    • Revenue from reordering accounts represented more than two-thirds of total DAXXIFY revenue in the fourth quarter.
    • The company ended the fourth quarter with over 3,000 accounts that have ordered DAXXIFY.
  • RHA Collection:
    • Revance expects preliminary unaudited fourth quarter 2023 RHA Collection revenue to be between $34 million and $35 million, and full year preliminary unaudited 2023 RHA Collection revenue to be between $128 million and $129 million.
    • In October, the FDA approved Teoxane SA’s Pre-Marketing Approval (PMA) application to expand the indication for RHA 3 to include injection into the vermillion body, vermillion border and oral commissure for lip augmentation and lip fullness in adults aged 22 years and older. RHA 3 was previously approved for the correction of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
  • Aesthetic Accounts:
    • Total aesthetic accounts across DAXXIFY and RHA Collection totaled over 7,000 as of the end of Q4 2024. Accounts that have ordered DAXXIFY totaled over 3,000 as of the end of Q4 2024.
  • DAXXIFY (Therapeutics):
    • The DAXXIFY cervical dystonia (CD) PrevU program continues to advance. Since the program's initiation on September 1st, 2023, approximately 250 patients have been treated with DAXXIFY across 30 practices, allowing Revance to collect valuable real-world clinical insights to inform commercial launch. Coverage for DAXXIFY for cervical dystonia has been secured for approximately 100 million commercial lives, which includes 8 out of the top 10 payers in the country, underscoring the product’s differentiated clinical profile and potential in the therapeutics market. The company expects to receive a permanent J-Code for DAXXIFY in early 2024, prior to commercial launch in mid-2024.

2024 Strategic Priorities:

  • Aesthetics: Grow DAXXIFY share by highlighting the value proposition of the product’s peptide formulation, long-duration, fast-onset, and the appearance of improved skin quality; strengthen professional partnerships through robust engagement initiatives and thought leadership efforts; grow share of RHA Collection with continued training and education, indication expansion and realization of portfolio synergies.
  • Therapeutics: Successfully complete the DAXXIFY CD PrevU program; leverage learnings and real-world clinical insights to support commercial success; secure ~50% commercial coverage by commercial launch; launch DAXXIFY for cervical dystonia mid-year 2024.
  • Focused and disciplined capital allocation:
    • Revance expects U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and non-GAAP operating expenses in 2023 to be within its previously announced GAAP and non-GAAP operating expense guidance ranges of between $545 million to $585 million and $315 million to $335 million, respectively.
    • Revance is on track to fully exit its OPUL® payments business by the end of Q1 2024, enabling greater focus on the company’s strategic priorities in aesthetics and therapeutics while generating up to approximately $20 million in annual savings. As a result of the exit of OPUL and prioritization of capital allocation, the company expects its 2024 GAAP and non-GAAP operating expense guidance to be below 2023 levels.
    • With preliminary, unaudited cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of approximately $250 million as of December 31, 2023, and anticipated revenues and expenditures, management projects that the company will be funded to cash flow break-even and expects to reach positive Adjusted EBITDA in 2025.
  • Enhanced and streamlined organizational structure:
    • With the appointment of Erica Jordan as Chief Commercial Officer, Aesthetics in the fourth quarter of 2023, the commercial organization was restructured to integrate and streamline marketing, sales, commercial operations, professional partnerships, strategy, data analytics and professional engagement functions. The new structure is designed to support the company’s strategic priorities by enhancing execution and performance while improving efficiencies.
    • As part of the company’s efforts to streamline the organization, Revance announced today that Dustin Sjuts, President, will be stepping down from his role, effective March 31, 2024.

2024 Guidance and Financial Outlook:

  • Product Revenue Guidance. Revance expects 2024 total product revenue, which includes sales of DAXXIFY and the RHA Collection, to be at least $280 million. Product revenue guidance for 2024 reflects the following assumptions:
    • DAXXIFY volume growth through deeper and broader account penetration, incorporating new pricing strategy.
    • Continued market share growth of the RHA Collection.
    • Modest revenue contribution from a measured DAXXIFY cervical dystonia launch, which is expected to occur mid-year 2024.
  • Operating Expense Guidance. The company expects its GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses for 2024 to be in the range of $460 million to $490 million, and $290 million to $310 million, respectively, the mid-points of which represent a ~16% and ~8% reduction from the midpoints of the company's 2023 operating expense guidance ranges. The reduction primarily reflects the exit of the company's OPUL payments business and prioritization of capital to support growth in aesthetics and the launch of DAXXIFY in cervical dystonia.
  • Financial Outlook. Revance expects to achieve positive Adjusted EBITDA in 2025 by driving top-line growth through focused investments in aesthetics and therapeutics while exercising disciplined expense management and capital allocation. Longer-term, the company reaffirms its blockbuster potential in U.S. aesthetics supported by its innovative product portfolio, including DAXXIFY, the first and only long-lasting peptide formulated neuromodulator and the RHA Collection, the least modified collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers on the market, delivering natural looking results. The company expects to increase revenue growth through deeper and broader account penetration of DAXXIFY and RHA and the introduction of new RHA indications and products. Further, the company believes meaningful upside can be achieved with the expansion of DAXXIFY into therapeutics and internationally, as well as the company’s strategic partnerships with Fosun and Viatris – representing at least $5.0 billion in future growth opportunities1.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Revance has presented certain preliminary and unaudited non-GAAP financial measures and forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures in this release, including Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP operating expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and extraordinary items such as restructuring and impairment charges. Non-GAAP operating expense excludes costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and restructuring and impairment charges. The Company excludes costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and extraordinary items like restructuring and impairment charges because management believes the exclusion of these items is helpful to investors to evaluate the Company’s recurring operational performance. Company management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and evaluate its operating results and trends on an ongoing basis, and internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

Revance is unable to reconcile preliminary unaudited and forward-looking non-GAAP operating expense or forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because the items that are being excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure are difficult to predict and a reconciliation or a range of results could lead to disclosure that would be imprecise or potentially misleading. Material changes to any one of the exclusions could have a significant effect on our preliminary estimates, forward-looking estimates and GAAP results. Such items include costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation, as well as extraordinary items like restructuring and impairment charges.
