DETAILS OF THE FULL YEAR 2023 FINANCIAL RESULTS
As a consequence of the recent transfer of our entire Jyseleca® business to Alfasigma, the revenues and costs related to Jyseleca® for the full year 2023 are presented separately from the results of our continuing operations on the line ‘Net profit/loss (-) from discontinued operations’ in our consolidated income statement. The comparative year 2022 has been restated accordingly for the presentation of the results related to the Jyseleca® business.

Results from our continuing operations

  • Collaboration revenues amounted to €239.7 million in 2023, compared to €241.2 million last year. The revenue recognition related to the exclusive access rights granted to Gilead for our drug discovery platform amounted to €230.2 million in 2023 (compared to €230.4 million in 2022). We also recognized royalty income from Gilead for Jyseleca® for €9.5 million in 2023 (compared to €10.7 million in 2022). Our deferred income balance at 31 December 2023 includes €1.3 billion allocated to our drug discovery platform that is recognized linearly over the remaining period of our 10-year collaboration.
  • Total operating loss from our continuing operations amounted to €88.3 million in 2023, compared to an operating loss of €131.1 million in 2022.
  • R&D expenditure in 2023 amounted to €241.3 million, compared to €269.8 million in 2022. Depreciation and impairment costs in 2023 amounted to €22.3 million (compared to €51.5 million in 2022). This decrease was primarily due to an impairment of €26.7 million of previously capitalized upfront fees related to our collaboration with Molecure and impairments of intangible assets related to other discontinued projects recorded in 2022. Personnel costs decreased from €115.5 million in 2022 to €95.8 million in 2023 primarily related to lower accelerated non-cash cost recognition for subscription right plans related to good leavers. This was partly offset by an increase in costs related to the evolution of our CAR-T programs.
  • S&M and G&Aexpenses amounted to €134.0 million in 2023, compared to €138.6 million in 2022. The decrease in S&M and G&A expenses is explained by a decrease in personnel expenses and other operating expenses, partly offset by an impairment of €7.6 million on a construction project in Mechelen, Belgium.
  • Other operating income (€47.3 million in 2023 compared to €36.1 million in 2022) increased, mainly driven by higher grant and R&D incentives income.

Net financial income in 2023 amounted to €93.9 million, compared to €60.2 million in 2022.

  • Fair value adjustments and net currency exchange results amounted to €16.3 million in 2023, compared to fair value adjustments and net currency exchange gains in 2022 of €51.5 million (this decrease was due to the evolution of the USD) and were primarily attributable to €20.4 million of unrealized currency exchange losses on our cash and cash equivalents and current financial investments at amortized cost in U.S. dollars, and to €38.3 million of net fair value gains of our current financial investments.
  • Net other financial income in 2023 amounted to €77.6 million, compared to net other financial income of €8.7 million in 2022. Net interest income amounted to €77.5 million in 2023 compared to €11.2 million of net interest income in 2022, due to an increase in the interest rates.

We had €9.6 million of tax expenses in 2023 (compared to €0.6 million in 2022). This increase was primarily due to the re-assessment of net deferred tax liabilities and corporate income tax payables due to a one-off intercompany transaction.

We reported a net loss from our continuing operations in 2023 of €4.0 million, compared to a net loss of €71.4 million in 2022.

Net profit/loss (-) from discontinued operations215.7(146.6)

Net profit from discontinued operations related to Jyseleca® amounted to €215.7 million, compared to net loss amounting to €146.6 million for the year 2022.

We recorded product net sales of Jyseleca® in Europe of €112.3 million for 2023 within guidance, compared to €87.6 million in 2022. Cost of sales related to Jyseleca® net sales in 2023 were €18.0 million (€12.1 million for the year 2022).

Collaboration revenues for the development of filgotinib with Gilead amounted to €429.4 million in 2023, compared to €174.4 million for the year 2022. This increase was explained by a substantial decrease in our assessment of the remaining costs to complete the filgotinib development following the recent transfer of our entire Jyseleca® business to Alfasigma, including the transfer of the remaining development performance obligation after closing of the transaction. As a result, there is a substantial increase of the percentage of completion of our performance rights and obligation and a positive catch-up released to revenues.

Our deferred income balance at 31 December 2023 still includes €26.3 million allocated to the filgotinib development that will be recognized as collaboration revenue in 2024.

Total operating profit from discontinued operations amounted to €217.3 million in 2023, compared to an operating loss of €136.5 million in 2022.

  • R&D expenditure for the filgotinib development in 2023 amounted to €190.2 million, compared to €245.3 million in 2022. This decrease was mainly due to the discontinuation of the DIVERSITY clinical trials in CD. Personnel expenses decreased by €15.0 million, from €74.6 million in 2022 to €59.6 million in 2023, subcontracting costs decreased as well by €39.0 million, from €153.7 million in 2022 to €114.7 million in 2023.
  • S&M and G&A expenses related to the Jyseleca® business amounted to €131.3 million in 2023, compared to €153.9 million in 2022. Personnel expenses decreased by €6.4 million, from €78.7 million in 2022 to €72.3 million in 2023, while external outsourcing costs decreased by €17.0 million, from €52.8 million in 2022 to €35.8 million in 2023.
  • Other operating income (€13.0 million in 2023 compared to €10.7 million in 2022) increased, mainly driven by higher R&D incentives income.
  • Net financial income attributable to the Jyseleca® business in 2023 amounted to €0.5 million, compared to a net financial cost of €7.8 million in 2022. The decrease is primarily explained by a lower discounting effect of long-term deferred revenue for the development of filgotinib because we expect to recognize the remaining revenues in 2024.

We reported a net profit in 2023 of €211.7 million, compared to a net loss of €218.0 million in 2022.

Cash position
Current financial investments and cash and cash equivalents totaled €3,684.5 million on 31 December 2023, as compared to €4,094.1 million on 31 December 2022 (excluding €9.9 million of net accrued interest income).

Total net decrease in cash and cash equivalents and current financial investments amounted to €409.6 million in 2023, compared to a net decrease of €609.1 million in 2022. This net decrease was composed of (i) €414.8 million of operational cash burn, (ii) €20.4 million of negative exchange rate differences, (iii) €7.0 million cash-out related to the acquisition of CellPoint B.V., (iv) €14.0 million acquisition of financial assets held at fair value through profit or loss, partly offset by (v) €24.3 million positive changes in fair value of current financial investments, (vi) €1.8 million of cash proceeds from capital and share premium increase from exercise of subscription rights in 2023, and (vii) €12.9 million of accrued interest income on term deposits and €7.6 million of accrued interest income on treasury bills.

Outlook 2024

  • Financial outlook
    For the full year 2024, we anticipate a further reduction in our cash burn and expect the cash burn to be between €280 million and €320 million (compared to €414.8 million for the full year 2023), not including future potential business development opportunities.
  • R&D Outlook
    • We aim to progress three CAR-T Phase 1/2 studies in hemato-oncology: GLPG5101 in rrNHL; GLPG5201 in rrCLL, with or without RT; and GLPG5301 in rrMM.
    • We expect to file IND applications in the U.S. to begin clinical development of our CAR-T programs in hemato-oncology.
    • We plan to further upscale our CAR-T network and operations in the U.S. and Europe, and potentially other key regions.
  • Business development
    We will continue to evaluate multiple product candidates and business development opportunities to further leverage our internal capabilities and accelerate and expand our pipeline of potential best-in-class investigational medicines in our therapeutic focus areas of immunology and oncology.

i The operational cash burn (or operational cash flow if this liquidity measure is positive) is equal to the increase or decrease in our cash and cash equivalents (excluding the effect of exchange rate differences on cash and cash equivalents), minus:
• the net proceeds, if any, from share capital and share premium increases included in the net cash flows generated from/used in (-) financing activities
• the net proceeds or cash used, if any, related to the acquisitions or disposals of businesses; the acquisition of financial assets held at fair value through profit or loss; the movement in restricted cash and movement in current financial investments, if any, the cash advances and loans given to third parties, if any, included in the net cash flows generated from/used in (-) investing activities
• the cash used for other liabilities related to the acquisition of businesses, if any, included in the net cash flows generated from/used in (-) operating activities.
This alternative liquidity measure is in our view an important metric for a biotech company in the development stage. The operational cash burn for the year 2023 amounted to €414.8 million and can be reconciled to our cash flow statement by considering the decrease in cash and cash equivalents of €339.8 million, adjusted by (i) the cash proceeds from capital and share premium increase from the exercise of subscription rights by employees for €1.8 million, (ii) the net purchase of current financial investments amounting to €94.2 million, (iii) the cash-out related to the acquisition of subsidiaries of €7.0 million, and (iv) the acquisition of financial assets held at fair value through profit or loss of €14.0 million.
