Replidyne Announces 2007 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Replidyne, Inc. (Nasdaq: RDYN) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2007.

Replidyne reported a net loss of $16.9 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007, or a net loss per basic and diluted common share of $0.63 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.6 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2006. For the year ended December 31, 2007, Replidyne reported net income of $7.7 million, or $0.29 per share basic common share and $0.28 per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $29.2 million, or $2.49 per basic and diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2006. Net income for the current year was due to revenue recognized upon termination of the company's commercialization and development agreement for faropenem medoxomil (faropenem) with Forest Laboratories (Forest) in May 2007. Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments at December 31, 2007 totaled $90.3 million.

"At the end of 2007, we streamlined our operations by restructuring the organization and re-prioritizing our research and development pipeline. In 2008, we continue to focus on our main objectives," said Kenneth J. Collins, Replidyne's President and CEO. "Securing a partner for the faropenem program remains a top priority. We intend to advance our Clostridium difficile program and file an IND by the end of the year. Also by the end of the year, we expect to identify an IND candidate from our DNA replication inhibition program. Finally, we will continue to seek strategic alternatives that augment our pipeline and add value."

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $58.6 million. Upon termination of the commercialization and development agreement with Forest, all unamortized upfront and milestone payments as well as contract revenue for funded activities were fully recognized as revenue in the period ended May 7, 2007. Replidyne will not report any revenue under this agreement for future reporting periods.

Research and development expenses in the fourth quarter of 2007 were $14.9 million compared to $13 million in the corresponding quarter of 2006. Faropenem related expense represented approximately 77% of total research and development expense in the quarter, primarily for costs to prepare for patient enrollment in three planned Phase III clinical trials of faropenem, one for treatment of acute bacterial sinusitis and two for treatment of community acquired pneumonia, as well as costs to support the ongoing placebo-controlled Phase III clinical trial of faropenem for treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Fourth quarter 2007 expense also included $1.7 million related to contingent supply agreement costs related to the delayed development program for faropenem. Additionally, research and development expense included increased costs for preclinical activities targeted to Replidyne's discovery research programs, primarily its C. difficile and inhibition of DNA replication programs offset by decreased expense related to the REP8839 program that was suspended in December 2007. Research and development expense was $43.3 million for the full year 2007 compared to $38.3 million in 2006. The increase in full year research and development expense reflected increased costs to prepare for future clinical trials of faropenem and ongoing execution of the placebo-controlled Phase III clinical trial for treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis as well as increased preclinical activities within the C. difficile and inhibition of DNA replication programs. These increases were partially offset by lower full year contingent supply agreement costs related to the faropenem program and $1.5 million of product acquisition cost in 2006 to complete the purchase of tRNA synthetase technology from GlaxoSmithKline which includes Replidyne's C. difficile program and REP8839.

Sales, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $3.2 million compared to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2006 reflecting lower marketing study expenses in the 2007 quarter. Included in the 2007 quarter result was $0.6 million related to the organizational restructuring implemented on December 10, 2007. Full year 2007 selling, general and administrative expenses were $13 million compared to $12.2 million in 2006 reflecting increased full year compensation costs, restructuring expense, and increased professional fees related to public company compliance.

Investment income for the fourth quarter of 2007 was $1.2 million compared to $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2006, primarily reflecting lower cash balances available for investment in the 2007 period. Full year 2007 investment income was $5.5 million compared to $6.0 million 2006.

As reported in its 2006 results, through July 3, 2006 Replidyne recorded dividends due to preferred shareholders of $5.4 million. All outstanding preferred stock and accumulated dividends were converted into common stock upon closing of the initial public offering on July 3, 2006 and no preferred stock or accrued dividends were outstanding after that date.
