NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems (NASDAQ: DCTH) today reported financial results for the fiscal 2011 third quarter ended September 30, 2011. Highlights for the quarter and recent developments include:
"Our company had a productive third quarter, with progress made in several areas toward commercialization of our CHEMOSAT system," said Eamonn P. Hobbs, President and CEO of Delcath. "While some of our goals have yet to be achieved, we are pleased that we will be able to meet emerging interest in CHEMOSAT with faster than expected development of our Generation Two version of the system, which we believe will not only improve filtration efficiency, but potentially lead to new therapeutic possibilities as well. Along with the positive clinical data released during the quarter, these and other developments have positioned us well to begin realizing the potential of the CHEMOSAT system in 2012."
For the three months ended September 30, 2011, the Company's operating loss was $12.2 million, which included approximately $900,000 in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This compares to an operating loss for the same period in the prior year of $7.4 million, which included approximately $1.4 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in the prior year.
The increase in G&A was primarily due to an expansion in staff as the Company continued its progress in transitioning from a development stage company to a commercial enterprise and preparations for commercialization in Europe. Research and development (R&D) expenses were $6.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to $4.3 million for the same period in the prior year.
The increase in R&D expenses was primarily due to our expanded research and development activities and regulatory expenses related to the preparation of our NDA submission for the FDA.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Company's operating loss was $30.5 million, which included approximately $3.4 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This compares to an operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 of $21.2 million, which included approximately $3.9 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense. G&A expenses were $15.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $9.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in G&A was primarily due to an expansion in staff as the Company continued its progress in transitioning from a development stage company to a commercial enterprise and preparations for commercialization in Europe. R&D expenses were $15.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $11.8 million during the first nine months of 2010. During 2010, the Company was incurring expenses related to wrapping up its Phase III clinical trial. The reduction in trial related expenses during 2011 was more than offset by an increase in expenses related to our expanded research and development activities and regulatory expenses related to our submission to the FDA.
At September 30, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit were $44.7 million, as compared to $54.3 million at September 30, 2010.
