Oncothyreon Reports Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

 

SEATTLE, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Oncothyreon Inc. (NASDAQ: ONTY) today reported a net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 of $4.4 million or $0.17 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $6.0 million or $0.24 per basic and diluted share for the comparable period in 2009.  Oncothyreon also reported a net loss of $9.5 million or $0.37 per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of $14.7 million or $0.68 per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.  The decrease in net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to the prior year periods was primarily attributable to a decrease in expense related to the change in fair value of warrant liability partially offset by increases in research and development and general and administrative expenses.

Research and development expenses increased to $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2009, and to $7.9 million for the first nine months of 2010 from $4.0 million for the first nine months of 2009, reflecting increased development and manufacturing activity for Oncothyreon's product candidates PX-866 and ONT-10.  General and administrative expenses increased to $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2009, and to $6.3 million for the first nine months of 2010 from $4.9 million for the first nine months of 2009.  The increase in general and administrative expenses for the nine month period was primarily the result of legal, accounting and consulting expenses related to regulatory compliance in the first quarter of 2010. 

As of September 30, 2010, Oncothyreon's cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $33.4 million, compared to $33.2 million as of December 31, 2009. The $0.2 million increase was attributable to cash used in operations and capital expenditures of $13.4 million offset by net proceeds of approximately $13.6 million from the sale in September 2010 of Oncothyreon equity securities. Financial Guidance Oncothyreon believes the following financial guidance to be correct as of the date provided.  Oncothyreon is providing this guidance as a convenience to investors and assumes no obligation to update it.

Expenses in 2010 are expected to be higher when compared to 2009, primarily as a result of the more advanced clinical development of PX-866 and preclinical development activities for ONT-10, as well as the legal, accounting and consulting expenses associated with regulatory compliance in the first quarter of 2010.  Oncothyreon currently expects cash used in operations in 2010 to be approximately $18-19 million. As a result, Oncothyreon estimates that its existing cash will be sufficient to fund operations for at least the next 12 months.
