Regado Biosciences Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results and Corporate Highlights
Date:8/11/2014

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Regado Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: RGDO), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the Phase 3 clinical development of Revolixys™ Kit (previously known as REG1), its first-in-class, actively controllable antithrombotic drug system, today announced its second quarter 2014 corporate highlights and financial results. A conference call and webcast to discuss the results will be held August 12, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. EDT.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 FINANCIAL SUMMARYCash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2014, totaled $72.7 million compared to $30.7 million at December 31, 2013. Regado's net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, was $21.4 million or a net loss of $.63 per share as compared to a net loss of $5.6 million or a net loss of $24.24 per share for the corresponding period in 2013 on both a basic and fully diluted basis.

Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2014 were $18.5 million, compared to $4.3 million for the comparable 2013 period. The increase in research and development expenses was primarily the net result of the REGULATE-PCI clinical trial which began in Q3 2013. The clinical trial expenses include site start-up costs, patient reimbursement and clinical trial drug product. The company expects research and development expenses to be reduced during the period of the clinical hold which is currently in place.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2014 were $2.8 million, compared to $1.1 million for the comparable 2013 period. The increase in general and administrative expenses primarily reflected increased personnel as well as increased accounting, legal and other administrative costs associated with being a public company. The company expects general and administrative expenses to potentially increase during the remainder of the year in connection with the purported class action lawsuits and derivative lawsuit recently filed against the company.

Corporate Highlights

  • Public Offering- In April 2014, the company completed an underwritten public offering of 10,279,461 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $6.00 per share, resulting in net cash proceeds of approximately $57.5 million after deducting the underwriting discount and offering expenses.
  • Issuance of a European Patent (EP 1745062) Covering Revolixys™ Kit - Provides broad intellectual property protection for the composition of matter and methods of using Revolixys to manage coagulation when treating patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
  • Allowance of US Patent Application No. 13/751,623 - Provides broad composition of matter protection for anti-FIXa aptamers and control agents to aptamers.
  • EuroIntervention Published Data from the Phase 2 RADAR-PCI Clinical Trial - Demonstrated Revolixys effectively suppressed ischemic events while also showing a more favorable bleeding profile at both 48h and 30 days post procedure.
  • REG2 Publication in the Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis - Data from a single escalating-dose Phase 1 clinical trial of the REG2 anticoagulation system demonstrated the dose and concentration-dependent attenuation of thrombin generation and subsequent restoration of thrombin following reversal associated with REG2.
  • Election of a New Board Member - In June 2014, at the Regado Annual Shareholders meeting Drew Fromkin was elected as a new member of the Board of Directors Mr. Fromkin most recently served as President, CEO of Clinical Data, Inc. prior to its acquisition by Forest Laboratories.
  • Status of REGULATE-PCI  On July 2, 2014, the Company announced that the Data Safety Monitoring Board, or DSMB, in agreement with the Company, was initiating a complete review of efficacy and safety data from the REGULATE-PCI trial. This review was initiated as a result of various serious adverse events, or SAEs, that were reported by certain site investigators at several sites around the world. As a result, the Company voluntarily suspended patient enrollment in the REGULATE-PCI trial until the DSMB completes its analysis and communicates its recommendations. In addition, on July 9, 2014, the United States Food and Drug Administration, or the FDA, informed the company that a clinical hold was placed on all patient enrollment and dosing of either study drug in the REGULATE-PCI trial. According to the FDA, this action was taken to formalize the involvement of the FDA in any decision to re-initiate enrollment and dosing in the trial in the future. During this period of data collection and analysis the Company and the principal investigators of the trial remain blinded. It is anticipated that the DSMB will complete their analysis by early September 2014.
