Genmab Announces Financial Results for the First Nine Months of 2022


November9, 2022 Copenhagen, Denmark;
Interim Report for the First Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022


  • Genmab revenue increased 60% compared to the first nine months of 2021, to DKK 9,368 million
  • Genmab improves its 2022 financial guidance

“During the first nine months of the year we continued to build on Genmab’s consistent track record of success. We have strengthened our pipeline, our team and our financial foundation is even more robust. We are pleased with the recent U.S. and European regulatory submissions for epcoritamab. These submissions are an important step in potentially bringing epcoritamab to people living with certain hematologic malignancies who are in need of a new treatment option,” said Jan van de Winkel, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab.

Financial Performance First Nine Months of 2022

  • Net sales of DARZALEX® by Janssen Biotech, Inc. (Janssen) were USD 5,894 million in the first nine months of 2022 compared to USD 4,378 million in the first nine months of 2021, an increase of USD 1,516 million, or 35%.
  • Royalty revenue was DKK 8,207 million in the first nine months of 2022 compared to DKK 4,698 million in the first nine months of 2021, an increase of DKK 3,509 million, or 75%. The increase in royalties was driven by higher net sales of DARZALEX, Kesimpta® and TEPEZZA® and a higher average exchange rate between the USD and DKK.
  • Revenue was DKK 9,368 million for the first nine months of 2022 compared to DKK 5,863 million for the first nine months of 2021. The increase of DKK 3,505 million, or 60%, was primarily driven by higher DARZALEX, Kesimpta and TEPEZZA royalties achieved under our collaborations with Janssen, Novartis Pharma AG (Novartis) and Roche, respectively, an increase in Tivdak® collaboration revenue, and reimbursement revenue driven by higher activities under our collaboration agreements with BioNTech SE (BioNTech), partly offset by milestones achieved under our collaborations with Janssen and AbbVie in the first nine months of 2021.
  • Operating expenses were DKK 5,676 million in the first nine months of 2022 compared to DKK 3,654 million in the first nine months of 2021. The increase of DKK 2,022 million, or 55%, was driven by the continued advancement of epcoritamab and multiple pipeline projects, an increase in team members to support Tivdak post launch and expansion of our product pipeline, and the continued development of Genmab’s commercialization and broader organizational capabilities and infrastructure.
  • Operating profit was DKK 3,692 million in the first nine months of 2022 compared to DKK 2,209 million in the first nine months of 2021.
  • Net financial items was income of DKK 2,681 million for the first nine months of 2022 compared to income of DKK 808 million in the first nine months of 2021. The increase of DKK 1,873 million was primarily driven by net foreign exchange rate gains due to the USD strengthening against the DKK.

Epcoritamab Regulatory Update
There were two regulatory submissions for epcoritamab in the second half of 2022. Genmab submitted a biologics license application (BLA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) for subcutaneous (SC) epcoritamab for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) after two or more lines of systemic therapy. Additionally, AbbVie submitted a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for SC epcoritamab for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) after two or more lines of systemic therapy, which has been validated by the EMA. Both submissions were supported by results from the LBCL cohort of the pivotal EPCORE™ NHL-1 open-label, multi-center trial evaluating the safety and preliminary efficacy of epcoritamab in patients with relapsed, progressive or refractory CD20+ mature B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL), including DLBCL.

As announced in Company Announcement No. 54, Genmab is improving its 2022 financial guidance published on August 8, 2022, driven primarily by the positive foreign exchange rate impact on our royalty revenue, and the continued strong performance of DARZALEX net sales.

EV-Joyment, Emotional Promise Motivate EV Adoption Over Environmental Benefits8.12.2022 10:00:58 CET | Press release

Latest Escalent EVForward™ Europe report findings encourage brands to tap into emotional aspirations of BEV ownership to engage with consumers LIVONIA, Mich., Dec. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As new-car buyer personas continue to evolve, connecting with consumers’ emotions and personality is more likely to ignite interest in battery electric vehicles (BEVs). This diverges from the long-standing industry narrative that environmental benefits are what drive BEV adoption, creating great opportunity for brands to expand their messaging and embrace new customers with a varying mix of values, lifestyles and attitudes. The environmental and running cost credentials of BEVs are clear, but relatively few car buyers are motivated by such a narrow range of rational criteria. In 2022, 43% of car buyers acknowledge the environmental credentials of BEVs as a benefit, but the same factor only ranks 9th out of 19 in a hierarchy of most important car buying criteria, thus revealing the environment’s l

Two rental housing trends reflected in SATO data too: Rental housing in city centres and residential districts remains popular − Most rental households have one or two members8.12.2022 10:00:00 CET | Press release

SATO Corporation Press release 8 December 2022 at 11.00 am The most popular residential areas are found in growth centre districts and areas close to city centres. One in three SATO tenants live alone. In late October, Statistics Finland released data on types of housing in Finland*, with two trends emerging from the statistics: the number of both those renting a home and those living alone is increasing. These trends can also be seen in data collected by SATO, one of Finland’s largest rental housing providers**. Population growth continues in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, Tampere and Turku, and already almost half of the households in these cities live in a rental home. There are several reasons behind the popularity of renting a home in growth centres, including demographic change, the uncertainties of working life and the differentiated price development of owner-occupied homes: Outside growth centres, the real prices of homes are declining, which makes acquiring an owner-occupied

NNIT A/S: NNIT now expects closing of infrastructure operations divestment in Q1, 20238.12.2022 09:42:19 CET | Press release

The divestment of NNIT’s infrastructure operations to funds managed by Agilitas Private Equity LLP announced on June 22, 2022 is progressing well, and is now expected to close in Q1, 2023, against the initial expectation of closing the transaction six months from announcement, cf. company announcement 9/2022. The transaction requires consent of customers of the infrastructure operation. Most customers have by now rendered their consent, however the updated timeline reflects a few customers’ internal approval processes, which we respect, as well as the pending approval processes with competition authorities and other regulatory authorities. Due to the ongoing divestment process, NNIT will not provide financial guidance for 2022 and expects to update its financial calendar regarding publishing date for annual report for 2022 and date for Annual General Meeting in 2023. Any revision to the financial calendar will be announced during January 2023. Contact for further information Carsten Ri
