Kindred Biosciences Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kindred Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: KIN) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Conference Call and Webcast at 4:30 p.m. Eastern / 1:30 p.m. Pacific

"It is an exciting time for KindredBio as we develop our broad portfolio of drug candidates," stated Richard Chin, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of KindredBio. "We currently anticipate the topline results from our pivotal study of CereKin shortly. The fact that we completed the entire study from start to finish in only 12 months, and on budget, is a testament to the quality and dedication of our team. As an organization, we continue to make top-notch science, patient benefit, and execution our top priorities."

If positive, the study will support an NADA filing for the approval of CereKin, an IL-1 inhibitor, for osteoarthritis in dogs. In addition, topline results for the pivotal studies of AtoKin, a selective histamine inhibitor for atopic dermatitis in dogs, and SentiKin, a KCNQ potassium channel agonist for postoperative pain in dogs, are targeted by end of the year, assuming enrollments proceed as scheduled.

In addition, KindredBio announced that it has made significant advances on several other products. A PK study of extended-release SentiKin for postoperative pain in cats has been completed. A PK study of a drug for the stimulation of appetite in cats has been initiated.  A PK study of a drug for fever in horses is expected to start this quarter. Significant progress has been made in the biologics program, including erythropoietin for cats with anemia and immune checkpoint inhibitors for dogs with cancer. All of these product candidates, if approved, would be first-in-class drugs in the pet therapeutic market.

KindredBio also announced that two of its executives, Steve Galliker and Kevin Schultz, will be retiring.  Steve Galliker's return to retirement was previously planned, and Kevin Schultz's retirement was precipitated by family issues. "I would like to thank these two very talented individuals who have played key roles in the success of KindredBio to date," stated Richard Chin. "We will continue to rely on them as consultants, and we look forward to further contributions they will make in these capacities."

Second Quarter and Six Month Financial ResultsResearch and development expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, were $5.6 million and $10.1 million, respectively, including stock-based compensation expense of  $361,000 and $689,000, respectively.  This compares to research and development expenses of $300,000 and $441,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.  Research and development expenses were higher due to a significant increase in activity related primarily to the CereKin, AtoKin and SentiKin programs. 

General and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, were $2.5 million and $4.2 million, respectively, including stock-based compensation expense of $815,000 and $1.6 million, respectively.  This compares to general and administrative expenses of $96,000 and $179,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.  General and administrative expenses related primarily to salaries, professional and consulting fees for legal, accounting and tax services, costs of being a public company, rent and other facilities costs, and other general business services. 

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, the Company incurred a net loss of $8.1 million, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013, of $396,000, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company incurred a net loss of $14.3 million, or $0.80 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2013, of $620,000, or $0.21 per basic and diluted share.  The net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, includes charges related to stock-based compensation expense of $1.2 million and $2.3 million, respectively, as compared to charges of $59,000 and $98,000 for the comparable periods of 2013, respectively.

The Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $112.4 million at June 30, 2014.  For the full year 2014 the Company, reiterating previous guidance, expects operating expenses to be in the range of $25 million to $35 million, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation expense and the impact of acquisitions.  The Company expects stock-based compensation expense for 2014 to be approximately $4.5 million. 

Research and development expense is anticipated to increase for the foreseeable future as the Company continues to increase headcount, commence pivotal studies and further develop its small molecule compounds and biologics development programs.  Due to the inherently unpredictable nature of its development, the Company cannot reasonably estimate or predict the nature, specific timing or estimated costs of the efforts that will be necessary to complete the development of its product candidates.

The Company expects general and administrative expense to increase in the following quarters as it executes plans to commercialize its product candidates, builds its corporate infrastructure and incurs costs associated with being a public company.
