Telik Announces Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Telik, Inc. (Nasdaq: TELK) today reported a net loss of $5.7 million, or $0.11 per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009, compared with a net loss of $13.6 million, or $0.26 per share, for the comparable period in 2008.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, total operating costs and expenses were $6.3 million, compared with $11.0 million in the 2008 second quarter. Operating expenses in the 2009 second quarter included stock-based compensation expense of approximately $0.5 million. Operating expenses were approximately 43% lower in the second quarter of 2009 compared with the same period in 2008, primarily due to lower headcount as a result of our restructuring in February 2009, reduced research, clinical trial and related expenses and lower stock compensation expense.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, Telik reported a net loss of $13.4 million, or $0.25 per share, compared with a net loss of $23.4 million, or $0.44 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2008. Total operating expenses for the first six months of 2009 were $14.0 million, compared with $21.6 million for the first six months of 2008. Operating expenses in the first six months of 2009 included approximately $1.3 million in stock-based compensation expense. The reduction in operating expenses of approximately 35% in the first six months of 2009 compared with the same period in 2008 was primarily due to lower headcount, reduced research and clinical trial expenses and lower stock-based compensation expense.

At June 30, 2009, Telik had $50.6 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments including restricted investments, compared to $63.5 million at December 31, 2008.

This press release contains "forward-looking" statements, including statements regarding the future development of TELINTRA and TELCYTA. These forward-looking statements are based upon Telik's current expectations. There are important factors that could cause Telik's results to differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements, including, among others, if clinical trials of TELINTRA or TELCYTA are delayed or unsuccessful, Telik's business would suffer, if Telik's competitors develop and market products that are more effective than its product candidates, or obtain marketing approval before Telik does, Telik's commercial opportunity will be reduced or eliminated, and if Telik does not obtain regulatory approval to market products in the U.S. and foreign countries, Telik will not be permitted to commercialize these product candidates. Detailed information regarding factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed or implied by statements in this press release may be found in Telik's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the factors described in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.
