GenVec Reports Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results
Date:11/8/2010

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Nov. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GenVec, Inc. (Nasdaq: GNVC) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.  

GenVec reported a net loss of $2.4 million ($0.02 per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to a net loss of $3.6 million ($0.04 per share) in the comparable quarter of 2009. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, GenVec's net loss was $11.3 million ($0.09 per share) compared to a net loss of $14.1 million ($0.15 per share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.  

Revenues for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 were $5.2 million and $11.3 million, respectively, representing increases of 76 percent and 7 percent as compared to $2.9 million and $10.5 million in the comparable prior year periods. The increase for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 is primarily due to increased revenue associated with our hearing loss and balance disorder program and collaboration with Novartis that began in January 2010.  During the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 our revenues for this program increased $3.1 million and $4.5 million, respectively.  Partially offsetting the increase in revenue associated with our hearing loss and balance disorder program is lower revenue under both the foot and mouth disease (FMD) and HIV programs, a result of the decreased work scope and effort in 2010 as compared to the 2009 periods.  Revenue for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 associated with our FMD program decreased $267,000 and $2.4 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year periods.  Revenue for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 associated with our HIV program decreased $0.7 million and $1.6 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year periods.  

Operating expenses were $7.5 million and $22.6 million for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010, respectively, representing an increase of 16 percent and a decrease of 7 percent as compared to $6.5 million and $24.3 million in the comparable prior year periods. The increase in the three-month period ended September 30, 2010 is primarily due to manufacturing activities associated with our hearing loss and balance disorder program, higher general laboratory and funded program supply costs and higher professional, personnel and facility costs as compared to the same period in 2009.  Partially offsetting these increases are decreased manufacturing activities related to our FMD and TNFerade programs and decreased clinical costs related to the termination of the PACT trial.  The decrease in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2010 is due mainly to lower manufacturing costs during the period and to a lesser extent, clinical costs related to the termination of the PACT trial.  Manufacturing costs related to the TNFerade program decreased significantly due to the expense in 2009 associated with the termination of the Cobra Biomanufacturing Plc agreement with no corresponding costs in the comparable period in 2010.  These decreases are partially offset by increased laboratory supply costs.  

GenVec ended the third quarter of 2010 with $35.9 million in cash, cash equivalents, and investments.  

"We anticipate revenues for 2010 will be between $16.0 million and $18.0 million. We currently project our cash burn to be approximately $1.5 million per quarter," commented GenVec's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Douglas J. Swirsky.
