revenue) in 2016 from EUR10.8 million in 2015 (including EUR2.2 million in license
revenue)
- Operating results improved to a loss of EUR11.5 million from a loss of EUR12.8 million,
in spite of a considerable increase in R&D and commercialization activities

mainly due to the new financing brought in including a rights issue which raised
EUR8.8 million

CEO's Commentary 
2016 was a major year for Pharming. During the year we achieved a number of positive milestones that culminated in December in the game-changing re-acquisition of commercialization rights for RUCONEST(R) in North America from subsidiaries of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (Valeant).
Early in the year we expanded our collaboration with Cytobioteck S.A.S. (Cytobioteck) for the exclusive distribution of RUCONEST(R) in Latin America by the addition of four countries.  Subsequently, we amended our agreement with Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (SOBI), resulting in the return of the commercialization rights for RUCONEST(R) in certain Western European, North African and Middle Eastern markets. This accelerated our goal towards becoming a fully integrated specialty pharma company.
In May, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) confirmed that pre-exposure testing was no longer necessary for RUCONEST(R). Later in the year a positive opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) was obtained recommending permission for home treatment with RUCONEST(R), with a custom-designed self-administration kit, which was confirmed by the EMA with the appropriate label adjustment early in 2017. This EU approval of self-administration is further to the US approval received in 2014.
In July, positive clinical and statistically significant results were achieved in our randomized double-blind Phase II clinical trial for RUCONEST(R) in prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema (HAE), meeting all primary endpoints. The study showed that RUCONEST (R), used once-weekly, results in a very similar reduction of HAE attack frequency to that obtained with twice-weekly dosing of the only currently approved product for the prophylaxis of HAE (i.e. approximately 50% reduction in attack frequency in approximately 50% of patients). RUCONEST(R) dosed twice-weekly achieved an unprecedented response rate (reduction of attack frequency of at least 50%) of 97% and average reduction of attack frequency of 73%. These results demonstrate, yet again, that the appropriate dosing of our C1 inhibitor leads to results that patients can rely on.
In order to continue to improve the convenience of RUCONEST(R) administration, our R&D scientists have formulated a highly-concentrated vial of RUCONEST(R), so that we are now looking to enter clinical trials with intra-muscular and/or sub-cutaneous administration of smaller injections of RUCONEST(R) within the next twelve months.
Following a preliminary announcement of the conditional deal in August, in December we announced the definitive acquisition of the North American commercialization rights for RUCONEST(R) from Valeant for an upfront payment of US$60 million and future undisclosed, self-financing sales milestones up to an additional US$65 million in total.
This agreement required the Company to raise sufficient financing to pay the upfront amount to Valeant and to make additional investments in the commercialization of RUCONEST (R) in both the US and Europe. A very substantial financing package of EUR104 million (relative to our market capitalization) enabled us to proceed and close the deal on 7 December. In addition, the package was structured with the aim to minimize dilution for our shareholders. We achieved this through a combination of a small rights issue, a significant straight debt facility and two convertible bonds, each of which were due to convert at a significant premium compared to the share price at the date of completion.    
The transition of the sales force that we acquired as part of the deal was smoothly executed, with the team selling RUCONEST(R) one day for Valeant and selling RUCONEST(R) the next day for Pharming. Immediately after the close of the deal, we initiated our plans to increase awareness and sales of RUCONEST(R) in the US market.  We have now hired additional experienced HAE/rare disease sales force members, medical science liaison professionals and a very seasoned management team with expertise in marketing, sales, commercial activity and patient support.
As a result of these EU and US transitions, we now operate with an optimal commercial presence in both Western Europe and the US and can focus fully on delivering on our commitment to become an operationally profitable company during 2017.      
As always, the support and hard work of our employees has made Pharming what it is today. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Pharming employees, our investors, partners and debt providers for their support and commitment throughout 2016. You enabled us to close on the transformational deal to re-claim RUCONEST(R) in December and to strengthen our platform for significant growth.
I look forward with confidence to accelerating the growth of Pharming in 2017, with increased sales, an exciting pipeline and new opportunities to enhance shareholder value.

2016 - Summary of Events 
Operational Events 

- Pharming re-acquired all commercial rights to sell RUCONEST(R) in the United
States of America, Canada and Mexico from Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.
("Valeant") in December 2016 in a deal valued at $125 million.  Of this amount, $60
million was paid upfront in December 2016 and an additional $65 million in total of
(self- funding) sales milestones will be payable when the Company reaches certain
specified but undisclosed sales levels.  In order to enable this transaction, the
Company increased its authorized capital from 650 million shares to 800 million shares
at an EGM in October.
- In July, the Company announced positive results from a Phase 2 clinical study of
RUCONEST(R) (recombinant C1 esterase inhibitor, 50 IU/kg) for prophylaxis in patients
with hereditary angioedema (HAE), meeting the primary endpoints met. In the study,
RUCONEST(R) showed a clinically relevant and statistically significant reduction in
attack frequency for both the twice-weekly and once-weekly treatment regimens as
compared with placebo.
- Mr. Paul Sekhri took over as Chairman in May 2016 from Mr Jaap Blaak, who remains on
the Supervisory Board.
- In February 2016, the company extended its distribution agreement with Cytobioteck
S.A.S. to include Argentina, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Panama in addition
to Colombia and Venezuela.
- The label for RUCONEST(R) in Europe was changed in February 2016 to remove the need
for any pre-exposure testing and to permit use for adolescents with HAE.  Since the
year end, the EMA has further amended the marketing authorization in Europe to allow
self-administration of RUCONEST(R) for acute hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks by
adolescents and adults with a new custom-designed RUCONEST(R) Administration Kit.
- In July, Pharming and SOBI amended their distribution agreement so that Pharming is
now able to market and sell RUCONEST(R) directly into an additional 21 countries.
 These countries are Algeria, Andorra, Bahrain, Belgium, France, Ireland, Jordan,
Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Morocco, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Syria, Spain, Switzerland,
Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Yemen.


Financial Events 

- As part of the Valeant transaction, the Company raised EUR104 million in new
funding through a combination of a rights issue, a new senior loan and convertible
bond issues.  The previous loan facility from Oxford Finance and Silicon Valley Bank
was repaid in full from the proceeds of this funding. The upfront amount to Valeant
under the deal of $60 million was also paid from this funding, and the balance will be
used to promote RUCONEST(R) in all direct markets and to increase the capacity for
manufacture of the product as necessary.
- Revenues from product sales increased to EUR13.7 million (2015: EUR8.6 million) mainly
as a result of better sales in the US, plus the effect of receiving all the revenue
from product sales for the last three weeks of the year after the Valeant transaction
(instead of the previous 30% supply agreement share of net sales).
- Total revenues increased to EUR15.9 million (including EUR2.2 million of license
revenue) in 2016 from EUR10.8 million in 2015 (including EUR2.2 million in license
revenue).
- Operating results improved to a loss of EUR11.5 million from a loss of EUR12.8 million,
in spite of a considerable increase in R&D and commercialization activity.
- The net loss of EUR17.5 million increased significantly from a loss of EUR10.0 million
in 2015, entirely as a result in the change in Financial Income and Expenses from a
gain in 2015 (due to positive revaluation of the Company's warrant schemes under IFRS)
to a loss of EUR6.0 million in 2016 as a result of the costs of the financing and loan
repayment as part of the Valeant deal.  Excluding these effects, the net result would
have improved.
- The equity position improved from EUR23.8 million in 2015 to EUR27.5 million in 2016,
mainly due to the new financing brought in including a rights issue which raised
EUR8.8 million.
- Inventories increased from EUR16.2 million in 2015 to EUR17.9 million in 2016, largely
due to the need to cover the improving sales level in the USA and to prepare for the
launch of the self-administration kits in Europe.
- The cash position including restricted cash increased from EUR31.8 million at year-end
2015 to EUR32.1 million at year-end 2016. This was mainly due to cash outflows related
to the increase of inventories of RUCONEST(R), a considerable increase in R&D
activities and cash inflows of the new straight debt facility of $40 million (EUR37.5
million) at a fixed coupon of 8.25% per annum from Kreos Capital and Silicon Valley
Bank, a rights issue of EUR8.8 million, an Ordinary bond issue of EUR12.5 million and
an Amortizing Bond Issue of EUR45.0 million all in December 2016 and EUR0.5 million
from the prepayment of supplies to our Latin American partner Cytobioteck. The debt
facility and bond issues were used to pay for the Valeant transaction, and to repay
the existing debt facility of $17.0 million (EUR15.5 million) from Oxford Finance and
Silicon Valley Bank as well as to provide funds to increase investment to enable the
new teams to market and sell RUCONEST(R) directly in the US and European markets.


After the year end 

- Since 31 December 2016, the following additional events have occurred:
- Following the positive opinion of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use
(CHMP) in October 2016, the European Commission has adopted the Commission
Implementing Decision to amend the marketing authorisation for RUCONEST(R) to include
self-administration using the RUCONEST(R) Administration Kit. This decision allows for
self-administration of RUCONEST(R) for acute hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks by
adolescents and adults with a new custom-designed RUCONEST(R) Administration Kit in
the comfort and privacy of their own homes (or at any other place they choose),
without a healthcare professional (HCP) attending.
- In January and February, certain holders of the Amortizing Bonds due 2017/8 converted
some of their Bonds into 20,723,193 Pharming shares ahead of the due date for payment
of the first and second instalments on those Bonds. These conversions were credited
against the scheduled first and second instalments of the Bonds, due on 1 February
2017 and 1 March 2017, and almost completely eliminating the cash payments. The
conversions took place at the conversion price of the Amortizing Bonds of EUR0.289 per
share, a premium of 41% to the rights price offered to existing shareholders in the
rights issue on the date of issue of the Bonds. As result of these conversions, the
total amount outstanding of the Amortizing Bonds has been reduced from EUR45.0 million
to EUR38.9 million.


Financial review 
Revenues and gross profit 
Revenues increased to EUR15.9 million in 2016 from EUR10.8 million in 2015. Both years include EUR2.2 million of deferred license revenue released, reflecting a portion of earlier license fee payments from partners including SOBI, Salix and SIPI which have been allocated across a number of financial years in accordance with accounting guidelines.  
Revenues to Pharming from product sales by Pharming and its partners increased to EUR13.7 million (2015: EUR8.6 million) including almost one month's full net US sales following the Valeant transaction in December 2016 on top of a slightly better year overall for RUCONEST(R) sales in the US (EUR11.8 million, up from EUR6.3 million in 2015).  This shows the immediate effect of the Valeant transaction on the top line - Revenues from product sales from the US for the first nine months of 2016 were EUR5.8 million, whereas in the fourth quarter alone they were EUR6.0 million.
Sales for RUCONEST(R) in Europe and the Rest of World ("RoW") were EUR1.9 million, reflecting largely flat sales in Europe after a stock adjustment by SOBI in Q1 2016.
Costs of product sales in 2016 amounted to EUR4.7 million, down from EUR4.8 million in 2015, reflecting volume and other savings obtained by better inventory management, resulting partly from the increased levels of sales in the US.
In 2016, the Company added EUR0.3 million of impairment costs of inventories (2015: reversal of EUR0.2 million). Impairment costs relate to costs of goods exceeding the anticipated sales price of the product in certain markets, usually due to imperfections in the product or short times before expiry of a batch of product.
Gross profit increased from EUR6.0 million in 2015 to EUR11.2 million in 2016, an increase of 87%. The main reasons for this increase were increased sales in the US and the effect of the Valeant transaction in December 2016 above the increase in sales and marketing costs added in the USA.
Operating costs 
Operating costs increased from EUR19.0 million in 2015 to EUR23.1 million in 2016. This increase reflected the increased R&D costs of the new pipeline programs, and the added cost of marketing and sales activities both in the US from December and in the new territories taken over from SOBI in October 2016, mainly in France and the United Kingdom.
R&D costs within these figures increased to EUR15.4 million from EUR14.2 million in 2015. In 2016, the costs have mainly been incurred in developing the two new major pipeline programs and completion of the Phase II clinical trial for prophylaxis of HAE.
General and administrative costs increased to EUR4.6 million from EUR3.7 million in 2015. The increase is mainly related to costs incurred in connection with the Valeant transaction and the addition of senior management in the US.
Marketing and sales costs of EUR3.1 million (2015: EUR1.1 million) reflect Pharming's additional new direct commercialization activities in the US and in France and the United Kingdom in Europe.
Operating result 
The operating result improved to a loss of EUR11.5 million from a loss of EUR12.8 million in 2015 in spite of a considerable increase in R&D and marketing and sales activity in 2016.  This can be put down largely to the effect of the Valeant transaction.  At September 2016, for example, the operating loss for nine months of 2016 was already EUR9.4 million (EUR3.1 million per quarter), meaning that the fourth quarter showed an operating loss of only EUR2.2 million despite the transaction and other costs taken in that period.
Financial income and expenses 
The 2016 net loss on financial income and expenses was EUR6.0 million, compared with a net gain of EUR2.9 million a year earlier. This is mainly due to a much smaller gain on revaluation of warrants of EUR0.1 million (2015: EUR3.4 million), and the costs of the new debt and other financing activity of EUR6.1 million.
Net result 
As a result of the above financial items, the net loss increased from EUR10.0 million in 2015 to EUR17.5 million in 2016.  Many of these costs are non-recurring, although interest and related costs will appear in 2017 and beyond.
Inventories 
Inventories increased from EUR16.2 million in 2015 to EUR17.9 million in 2016, largely due to the need to cover the improving sales level in the USA and to prepare for the launch of the self-administration kits in Europe.
Cash and cash equivalents 
The total cash and cash equivalent position (including restricted cash) increased from EUR31.8 million at year-end 2015 to EUR32.1 million at year-end 2016.  
The principal elements of cash flow were the operating loss of EUR11.5 million (2015: operating loss of EUR12.8 million), payment of the upfront amount of $60 million to Valeant, an increase in inventories of EUR1.7 million, increase in trade receivables of EUR4.2 million, increase in trade and other payables of EUR7.0 million and net cash inflow from equity and debt financing of EUR77.3 million excluding transaction fees and expenses.
Equity 
The equity position improved from EUR23.8 million in 2015 to EUR27.5 million in 2016, mainly due to the net financing from the rights issue and convertible financings balanced by the net loss for the year.
Performance of Pharming shares 
During 2016, the Pharming stock price fluctuated around an average price of EUR0.23 per share. The year-end price was EUR0.22 (2015: EUR0.28), with a high of EUR0.31 in March and a low of EUR0.17 in June 2016.
New issues of stock were made to investors during the year and related to the rights issue, as a result of which 42,981,939 new shares were issued; in respect of warrants, of which 100,000 new shares were issued on exercise of the underlying warrants; and 533,583 new shares were issued to members of the board of management and employees in lieu of cash bonuses with an aggregate value of EUR0.1 million for a total of 43,615,522 new shares issued during the year.  Since the year end, a further 20,723,193 new shares have been issued pursuant to conversion of some of the Amortizing Bonds due 2017/18, reducing the amount outstanding of those Bonds from EUR45.0 million to EUR38.9 million.
Outlook 
For the remainder of 2017, the Company expects:

- Continued growth in revenues from sales of RUCONEST, mainly driven by the US
operations.
- Achievement of positive quarterly Operating Results in the course of the year.
- Continued investment in the production of RUCONEST(R) in order to ensure continuity of
supply to the growing markets in the US, Europe and the rest of the world.
- Investment in the approval or further clinical trial program for RUCONEST(R) in
prophylaxis of HAE and the development of a small IV version and new intramuscular and
subcutaneous versions of RUCONEST(R).
- We will also continue to invest carefully in the new pipeline programs in Pompe
disease and Fabry's disease, and other new development opportunities and assets as
these occur.
- Increasing marketing activity where this can be profitable for Pharming, such as in
our current major territories of the United States, Austria, France, Germany, the
United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
- We will continue to support all our teams and marketing partners in order to enable
the maximization of the sales and distribution potential of RUCONEST(R) for patients
in all territories, as we continue to believe that RUCONEST(R) represents the fastest,
most effective, most reliable and safest therapy option available to HAE patients.


No further financial guidance for 2017 is provided.
Although the requirement to produce quarterly reports has been discontinued under the new EU Transparency Directive and the Amended Transparency Directive Implementation Act, Pharming intends to continue to provide quarterly operating and financial reports on a voluntary basis.

About Pharming Group N.V. 
Pharming is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing innovative products for the safe, effective treatment of rare diseases and unmet medical needs. Pharming's lead product, RUCONEST(R) (conestat alfa) is a recombinant human C1 esterase inhibitor approved for the treatment of acute Hereditary Angioedema ("HAE") attacks in patients in Europe, the US, Israel and South Korea. The product is available on a named-patient basis in other territories where it has not yet obtained marketing authorization.
RUCONEST(R) is commercialized by Pharming in Algeria, Andorra, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Morocco, the Netherlands, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Syria, Spain, Switzerland, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Yemen.
RUCONEST(R) is distributed by Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (SS: SOBI) in the other EU countries, and in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Liechtenstein, Norway, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine.
RUCONEST(R) is distributed in Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Venezuela by Cytobioteck, in South Korea by HyupJin Corporation and in Israel by Megapharm.
RUCONEST(R) is also being investigated in a Phase II clinical trial for the treatment of HAE in young children (2-13 years of age) and evaluated for various additional follow-on indications.
Pharming's technology platform includes a unique, GMP-compliant, validated process for the production of pure recombinant human proteins that has proven capable of producing industrial quantities of high quality recombinant human proteins in a more economical and less immunogenetic way compared with current cell-line based methods. Leads for enzyme replacement therapy ("ERT") for Pompé and Fabry's diseases are being optimized at present, with additional programs not involving ERT also being explored at an early stage at present.
Pharming has a long term partnership with the China State Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry ("CSIPI"), a Sinopharm company, for joint global development of new products, starting with recombinant human Factor VIII for the treatment of Haemophilia A. Pre-clinical development and manufacturing will take place to global standards at CSIPI and are funded by CSIPI. Clinical development will be shared between the partners with each partner taking the costs for their territories under the partnership.
Pharming has declared that the Netherlands is its "Home Member State" pursuant to the amended article 5:25a paragraph 2 of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act.
