Palatin Technologies, Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Results; Teleconference and Webcast to be held on November 16, 2009
Date:11/16/2009

CRANBURY, N.J., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Palatin Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Amex: PTN) today announced results for its quarter ended September 30, 2009. Palatin reported a net loss of $37,000, or $(0.00) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, compared to a net loss of $4.3 million, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2008. Total revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2009 were $3.7 million, compared to $754,000 for the same period in 2008.

The decrease in net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, compared to the same period last fiscal year, was primarily due to an increase in revenue recognized under Palatin's license and clinical trial agreements with AstraZeneca AB (AstraZeneca) and a net decrease in operating expenses resulting from strategic restructuring and refocusing of Palatin's clinical-stage development programs in 2008.

In September 2009, Palatin and AstraZeneca signed an amendment to their exclusive research collaboration and license agreement to discover, develop and commercialize compounds that target melanocortin receptors for treatment of obesity and related indications. Under the terms of the amendment to the parties' collaboration agreement, AstraZeneca has agreed to make a $2.5 million payment (received October 2009) and, subject to completion of certain tasks relating to the program, $2.5 million in the first quarter of calendar year 2010. Under the amendment, the terms of the original collaboration and license agreement signed in January 2007 relating to milestone payments and royalty rates were restructured.

As of September 30, 2009, Palatin's cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $7.7 million, compared to $7.8 million at June 30, 2009.

LICENSE AND CONTRACTS

For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, Palatin recognized $3.7 million of contract revenue under its collaboration agreement with AstraZeneca, compared to $746,000 for the same period in 2008. Based on the September 2009 amendment, Palatin will provide research services to AstraZeneca through January 2010. Accordingly, contract revenue is being recognized over the estimated remaining performance period.

COSTS AND EXPENSES

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 were $3.8 million compared to $5.1 million for the comparable quarter of 2008, primarily due to a strategic restructuring and refocusing of Palatin's clinical-stage development programs.

Palatin Technologies' management will discuss the first quarter financial results for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010 and provide an update on corporate developments during a conference call and webcast on November 16, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. ET.
