Idenix Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter 2011 Financial Results
Date:4/27/2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Idenix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDIX), a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of drugs for the treatment of human viral diseases, today reported unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2011. At March 31, 2011, Idenix's cash and cash equivalents totaled $31.4 million.

First Quarter 2011 Financial ResultsFor the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, Idenix reported total revenues of $4.0 million, compared to total revenues of $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2010. The company reported a net loss of $8.2 million, or a loss of $0.11 per basic and diluted share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to a net loss of $16.2 million, or a loss of $0.24 per basic and diluted share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010. The $8.0 million reduction in net loss in 2011 was due primarily to fewer expenses associated with the company's HCV drug candidates, IDX184 and IDX320, and a lack of restructuring expenses in 2011. During the first quarter of 2010, the company was conducting a phase IIa clinical trial of IDX184 and a phase I clinical study of IDX320, whereas there were no ongoing studies with either drug candidate in the first quarter of 2011. The company expects that expenses will increase during 2011 as a result of its plans to initiate a phase IIb clinical trial of IDX184 in the second half of 2011.

Underwritten Offering and Private PlacementOn April 13, 2011, Idenix priced an underwritten offering of 21,056,500 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $2.80 per share. JP Morgan acted as the sole book-running manager and underwriter for the offering. Concurrent with the underwritten offering, Idenix also issued 1,785,714 shares of its common stock to Novartis Pharma AG through a private placement at $2.80 per share. After the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses payable by the company for both these transactions, Idenix received net proceeds of approximately $60.2 million. The underwritten offering was completed pursuant to a shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in September 2008 for an indeterminate number of shares of common stock, up to $100.0 million. Following this offering, the company has issued shares aggregating over $100.0 million, thereby fully utilizing the shelf registration statement.

Clinical Program UpdateIdenix has completed dosing in the single dose bioavailability study in healthy volunteers of a tablet formulation of IDX184 that the company intends to use in the phase IIb clinical trial of IDX184. The results of this bioavailability study are expected during the second quarter of 2011.

2011 Financial Guidance The company expects that its current cash and cash equivalents, the anticipated royalty payments associated with product sales of Tyzeka®/Sebivo® (telbivudine) and the net proceeds from the underwritten offering and private placement on April 13, 2011 will be sufficient to satisfy its cash needs until at least the second quarter of 2012. This guidance assumes no additional milestone payments, license fees, reimbursement for development programs or financing activities.
