Insmed Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter and Six-Months Ended June 30, 2009

RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insmed Inc. (Nasdaq: INSM), a biopharmaceutical company, today reported results for the second quarter and six-months ended June 30, 2009.

Revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009 were $3.0 million, up from $2.7 million for the corresponding period in 2008. The increase was primarily attributable to $272,000 of grant revenue related to the IPLEX(TM) myotonic muscular dystrophy ("MMD") clinical trial recorded in the most recent second quarter.

The net loss for the second quarter of 2009 was $1.6 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.04 per share, in the second quarter of 2008. This $3.1 million decrease was primarily attributable to a $2.8 million decrease in total expenses, in addition to the $0.3 million increase in total revenues.

The $2.8 million total decrease in expenses was due primarily to a $4.1 million decrease in research and development expenses ("R&D Expenses"), which was partially offset by a $1.4 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A Expenses").

The lower R&D expenses reflected the elimination of manufacturing expenses following the sale of our follow-on biologics ("FOB") assets in March 2009. The increase in SG&A expenses was due to a combination of external finance and consulting advisory services associated with the ongoing strategic review, increased personnel costs, primarily related to the separation agreement with Geoffrey Allan, Ph.D., and license fees relating to the March 2007 patent settlement agreement with Genentech Inc. and Tercica Inc.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, revenues totaled $5.4 million, up from $5.1 million in the first six months of 2008. Consistent with second quarter results, the increase was primarily attributable to $544,000 of grant revenue related to the IPLEX(TM) MMD clinical trial recorded during the most recent six-month period. This was partially offset by a decrease of $262,000 in cost recovery from the various Expanded Access and Named Patient Programs to treat patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ("ALS"), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, in Europe.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was $116.2 million, or $0.93 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.5 million, or $0.08 per share, for the first six months of 2008. This $125.7 million improvement was primarily due to the $127.8 million before tax gain on sale of our FOB assets to Merck, a $3.6 million decrease in R&D expenses and the $0.3 million rise in total revenues, which were partially offset by a $3.3 million increase in SG&A expenses and $2.8 million in income tax expense on the sale of our FOB assets. Year-over-year, R&D expenses fell to $7.3 million for the first half of 2009 from $10.9 million, reflecting a decrease in manufacturing expenses following the sale of our FOB assets in March 2009. SG&A expenses increased to $6.3 million for the first half of 2009 from $3.0 million a year earlier, due largely to the recognition of stock compensation expense for the restricted stock and restricted stock units that vested on March 31, 2009, and the award of bonuses, together with the increased consulting, personnel and license fees previously mentioned.

Interest income for the first half of 2009 was $135,000 and was a reduction from the $375,000 earned in the same period of 2008 due to lower interest rates.

"We remain focused on leveraging our strong balance sheet to grow our business and enhance shareholder value," said Dr. Melvin Sharoky, Insmed's Chairman. "The entire Board and management team, along with our strategic financial advisers, RBC Capital Markets, are working aggressively to identify the appropriate course of action, and we aim to complete our strategic review of alternatives as quickly as reasonably possible."

As of June 30, 2009, Insmed had total cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments, and certificate of deposits on hand totaling $124.9 million, consisting of $122.8 million in cash and short term investments and $2.1 million in a certificate of deposit, as compared to $2.4 million of cash on hand as of December 31, 2008. The $122.5 million increase in total cash was due to the $127.8 million in before tax proceeds from the sale of Insmed's FOB assets to Merck, $4.1 million from the conversion of warrants and options into common stock and the release of a $2.1 million previously restricted certificate of deposit, which was partially offset by $10.6 million utilized to fund operations and $0.8 million for the partial repayment of the Company's 2005 convertible notes.
