ADVENTRX Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results
Date:11/5/2012

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ADVENTRX Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ANX) today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

"With a strong cash position of approximately $40 million, we are well positioned to start our phase 3 study of ANX-188 in sickle cell disease," stated Brian M. Culley, Chief Executive Officer of ADVENTRX.  "We are pleased that we have finalized the protocol and completed the majority of our manufacturing activities that will enable us to start the study by the end of 2012," Mr. Culley continued. 

Third Quarter 2012 Operating ResultsADVENTRX's net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $3.2 million, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.13 per share (basic and diluted), for the same period in 2011.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $1.7 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 19%, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2011. The net decrease was primarily due to a $0.8 million decrease in external nonclinical study fees and expenses, which was offset by increases of $0.3 million in personnel costs and $0.1 million in external clinical study fees and expenses. The decrease in external nonclinical study fees and expenses resulted primarily from decreases in research-related manufacturing expenses of $1.1 million for ExelbineTM and $0.2 million for ANX-514.  The increase in personnel costs was primarily related to increased headcount, including relocation and recruitment costs for our new Chief Medical Officer.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $1.8 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 8%, compared to $2.0 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in consulting fees and legal expenses due to cost-savings realized by discontinuation of commercial-readiness activities related to Exelbine.

Transaction-related expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were ($0.3) million compared to ($0.5)  million for the same period in 2011.  We recognized transaction-related expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 due to changes in the fair values at September 30, 2012 and 2011 relative to June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of the contingent asset and contingent liability related to the consideration of our acquisition of SynthRx.  The net $0.3 million reduction to transaction-related expenses was primarily due to the increase in our stock price at September 30, 2012 relative to June 30, 2012.

Year-to-Date Operating ResultsADVENTRX's net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $11.6 million, or $0.24 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a net loss of $10.9 million, or $0.43 per share (basic and diluted), for the same period in 2011.

R&D expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $6.0 million, an increase of $2.0 million, or 49%, compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2011. The increase was primarily due to a $1.0 million increase in personnel costs, a $0.7 million increase in external nonclinical study fees and expenses and a $0.3 million increase in external clinical study fees and expenses. The increase in personnel costs was primarily related to increased headcount. The increase in external nonclinical study fees and expenses was primarily related to increases in research-related manufacturing expenses of $1.9 million for ANX-188 and $1.0 million for ANX-514, offset by a $2.2 million decrease in research-related manufacturing expenses related to Exelbine.

SG&A expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $5.7 million, an increase of $0.3 million, or 7%, compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2011. The increase resulted primarily from a $0.6 million increase in personnel costs, mainly due to increased headcount, and a $0.5 million increase in share-based compensation expense, offset by a $0.8 million decrease in consulting fees and legal expenses.

Transaction-related expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were ($0.2) million compared to $1.5 million for the same period in 2011.  We recognized transaction-related expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 due to changes in the fair values at September 30, 2012 relative to December 31, 2011 of the contingent asset and contingent liability related to the consideration for our acquisition of SynthRx.  The net $0.2 million reduction to transaction-related expenses was primarily due to the increase in our stock price at September 30, 2012 relative to December 31, 2011. Transaction-related expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 consisted of $1.8 million related to legal, accounting, financial and business development advisory fees associated with the evaluation of potential acquisition targets, including SynthRx, and a $0.3 million reduction related to changes in the fair value of contingent consideration related to the SynthRx acquisition.

Balance Sheet HighlightsAs of September 30, 2012, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $39.9 million. Stockholders' equity amounted to $46.3 million as of September 30, 2012.
