MAP Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter of 2008 Financial Results
Date:11/12/2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAPP) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008.

The net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008 was $20.4 million compared with $9.8 million during the same period in 2007. The net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 was $51.1 million compared to $25.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. As of September 30, 2008, MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $63.0 million.

"We had a very busy and productive third quarter with two active Phase 3 clinical programs ongoing. We completed patient enrollment of our Phase 3 trial of Unit Dose Budesonide, or UDB, for the potential treatment of pediatric asthma, and continued enrollment of our Phase 3 trial of MAP0004 for the potential treatment of migraine," said Timothy S. Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer of MAP Pharmaceuticals. "In this environment, we continue to manage our resources prudently as we advance toward our goal of commercializing clearly differentiated products that address major market opportunities."

Third Quarter 2008 and Recent Accomplishments

Clinical development

-- UDB: Completed enrollment and randomized approximately 360 patients in a Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate UDB for the potential treatment of pediatric asthma. The last patient in this trial is expected to complete the 12-week treatment period by the end of 2008.

-- MAP0004: Initiated enrollment in a Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate MAP0004 for the potential treatment of migraine, pursuant to a Special Protocol Assessment with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Other corporate progress

-- Added industry veterans to the management team and board of directors, including: Donald J. Kellerman, Pharm.D. to the position of Senior Vice President, Clinical Development and Medical Affairs; Alan H. Cohen, M.D., to the position of Vice President, Clinical Development and Medical Affairs, Pulmonary; and Scott R. Ward to the board of directors.

-- Published positive results in a scientific journal from a Phase 2 study evaluating the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of MAP0004 in adult asthmatics, and presented three posters related to MAP0004 at the European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress.

Third Quarter and Nine Month Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 were $16.8 million and $41.6 million, respectively, compared to $7.5 million and $18.3 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2007. The increase in research and development expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 as compared to the same periods in 2007 was primarily driven by an increase in clinical expenses to support Phase 3 clinical programs initiated in 2008 for our two lead product candidates, UDB and MAP0004, and an increase in personnel related expenses and stock-based compensation in support of these clinical programs.

Sales, general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 were $3.4 million and $9.7 million, respectively, compared to $2.4 million and $6.8 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2007. The increase in sales, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2008 as compared to the same period in 2007 was primarily related to increases in personnel related expenses and stock-based compensation, as well as increases due to professional fees, outside services and other administrative related costs. The increase in sales, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 as compared to the same period in 2007 was primarily related to increases in personnel related expenses and stock-based compensation, as well as increases due to professional fees, outside services and other administrative related costs, partially offset by a decrease in non-recurring IPO expenses incurred in the prior year.

MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2008 of $63.0 million, compared to $95.0 million as of December 31, 2007. In addition, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008, non-cash share-based compensation and depreciation was approximately $1.5 million and $4.0 million, respectively.
