DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2017-- Alkermes plc (NASDAQ: ALKS) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2017.

“Our third quarter results reflect solid year-over-year topline growth of more than twenty percent and disciplined expense management. We continue to focus on executing on our business strategy to grow our commercial products and invest in the late-stage development programs that we expect will be the growth drivers for the future,” commented James Frates, Chief Financial Officer of Alkermes. “As we head into the final months of the year, today we are reiterating our guidance for non-GAAP results and improving guidance for GAAP net loss. These expectations reflect reduced revenues, largely due to VIVITROL® sales growth being slightly lower than expected in the third quarter, offset by lower cost forecasts.”

“VIVITROL and ARISTADA® both operate in markets where there remains significant unmet patient need. With new health and economic data being generated to support the long-term potential of these important medicines, we continue to progress VIVITROL and ARISTADA and work toward ensuring access for the patients that need these medicines,” said Richard Pops, Chief Executive Officer of Alkermes. “Looking ahead, 2018 will be a transformative year for Alkermes’ proprietary development pipeline, with key events across the development portfolio, highlighted by FDA review of the ALKS 5461 NDA, the phase 3 data readout for ALKS 3831, submission of the ALKS 8700 NDA and important phase 1 data for ALKS 4230.”
