MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAPP) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009.
The net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 was $5.0 million, compared to $16.5 million during the same period in 2008. The net loss for the first six months of 2009 was $14.9 million, compared to $30.8 million for the first six months of 2008. As of June 30, 2009, MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and accounts receivables of $59.9 million.
"We are very pleased that in the first Phase 3 trial for our LEVADEX(TM) migraine therapy, all four primary endpoints were met with statistical significance," said Timothy S. Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer of MAP Pharmaceuticals. "With these positive results in hand and our recent decision to suspend development of Unit Dose Budesonide (UDB), we are now focusing our efforts on the development of LEVADEX. We believe that LEVADEX has a differentiated profile, with the potential to provide rapid and sustained relief of migraine symptoms, and could offer benefit to many of the approximately 30 million migraine sufferers in the U.S., including many who are not helped by currently available migraine therapies. We look forward to presenting the data from our successful Phase 3 trial of LEVADEX at the 14th Congress of the International Headache Society in September."
Second Quarter and Six Month Financial Results
Revenues for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009 were $8.6 million and $16.1 million, respectively, compared to $0 for the same periods in 2008. The collaboration revenue to date in 2009 was due to the amortization of a $40.0 million upfront payment received in February 2009 and reimbursements for UDB-related development expenses, pursuant to MAP Pharmaceuticals' license agreement with AstraZeneca AB. On July 8, 2009, the company received notice from AstraZeneca of the termination of the license agreement, effective immediately. As a result, the remaining unamortized deferred revenue of $33.1 million will be recognized as collaboration revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2009.
Research and development expenses for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009 were $9.6 million and $23.7 million, respectively, compared to $13.0 million and $24.8 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2008. The decreases in research and development expenses were driven primarily by decreases in clinical and other project expenses to support the UDB Phase 3 clinical program, partially offset by increases in clinical and other project expenses to support the LEVADEX Phase 3 clinical program, and in personnel-related expenses to support these clinical programs.
Sales, general and administrative expenses for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009 were $3.4 million and $6.2 million, respectively, compared to $3.2 million and $6.3 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2008. For the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008, the increase was related primarily to increases in personnel-related expenses, stock-based compensation and other miscellaneous fees.
MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of June 30, 2009 of $54.8 million, compared to $44.7 million as of December 31, 2008. In addition, accounts receivables were $5.1 million at June 30, 2009, compared to $0 at December 31, 2008, due to the collaboration with AstraZeneca.
For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009, non-cash share-based compensation and depreciation were approximately $1.7 million and $3.3 million, respectively.
Second Half 2009 Financial Outlook
MAP Pharmaceuticals' cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and accounts receivables as of June 30, 2009 provide operating capital for at least the next twelve months. MAP Pharmaceuticals currently expects to have lower operating expenses in the second half of 2009 compared to the first half of 2009.
