Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K is Theravance, Inc.s current investor presentation and is incorporated by reference herein.
With regard to expense guidance for 2013, we currently anticipate that total 2013 Research and Development expenses plus Selling, General and Administrative expenses will be in the range of $125 million to $135 million. This guidance does not include stock-based compensation expense or any milestone payments to GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) under our long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA) collaboration with GSK.
Our expectations regarding our expenses for 2013 are forward-looking statements based solely on management estimates utilizing currently available information. As described below under Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements, investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve significant risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Our independent registered public accounting firm has not audited, reviewed or performed any procedures with respect to these expected expenses and, accordingly, does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to these expectations.
Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K and the attached presentation contains certain forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding, among other things, statements relating to goals, plans, objectives and future events. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words may, will, should, could, would, plan, anticipate, believe, estimate, intend, goal, project, potential, designed, expect, consistent, support, target and promising and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Examples of such statements include statements relating to expense guidance for 2013, the status and timing of clinical studies, data analysis and communication of results, statements regarding the potential benefits and mechanisms of action of drug candidates, statements concerning the timing of seeking regulatory approval of our product candidates (including, with respect to VIBATIV®, statements regarding any expectation that we will be able to respond fully or adequately to the FDAs requests using currently existing clinical data and any expectation that the FDA will approve the VIBATIV® nosocomial pneumonia NDA on the basis of existing preclinical and clinical data or at all), statements concerning the enabling capabilities of our approach to drug discovery and its proprietary insights, statements concerning expectations for the discovery, development and commercialization of product candidates and projections of revenue, expenses and other financial items. These statements are based on the current estimates and assumptions of our management as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and are subject to risks, uncertainties, changes in circumstances, assumptions and other factors that may cause our actual results to be materially different from those reflected in its forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements include, among others, risks related to delays or difficulties in commencing or completing clinical and non-clinical studies, the potential that results of clinical or non-clinical studies indicate product candidates are unsafe or ineffective, our dependence on third parties in the conduct of our clinical studies, delays or failure to achieve regulatory approvals for product candidates, risks of relying on third-party manufacturers for the supply of our product and product candidates and risks of collaborating with third parties to discover, develop and commercialize products. These and other risks are described in greater detail under the heading Risk Factors contained in our Registration Statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on January 16, 2013, and the risks discussed in our periodic filings with the SEC.
