Interim Report for the First Half of 2019
“The first half of 2019 brought truly transformational change to Genmab as we began the process of becoming a dual-listed company, with the potential to trade shares in both the U.S. (in the form of ADSs) and in Denmark. We also built upon our already successful relationship with Janssen with the signing of an agreement to collaborate exclusively on the next-generation CD38 antibody product candidate, HexaBody-CD38. We have seen encouraging pre-clinical data from HexaBody-CD38 and believe it has the potential to extend the promise of CD38-targeted therapies beyond what is currently available for patients,” said Jan van de Winkel, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab. “In addition to these key events, the first half of 2019 also saw the highly anticipated U.S. FDA approval for DARZALEX, based on the Phase III MAIA data. Now that this indication has been approved many more patients in the U.S. who are newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma will have a DARZALEX containing regimen as a choice for their initial therapy.”
Financial Performance First Half of 2019
Genmab is updating its 2019 financial guidance published on February 20, 2019 due to increased royalty income related to the sales of DARZALEX and increased operating expenses as a result of the advancement of our product pipeline.
