Palatin Technologies, Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Results; Teleconference and Webcast to be held on November 14, 2013

CRANBURY, N.J., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Palatin Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: PTN), a biopharmaceutical company developing targeted, receptor-specific peptide therapeutics for the treatment of diseases with significant unmet medical need and commercial potential, today announced results for its first quarter ended September 30, 2013. 

Recent Highlights
Bremelanotide development for Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD):

  • Successful completion of device bioequivalence trial
  • Receipt of a $1.0 million, non-refundable option fee relating to negotiation of a potential future license of bremelanotide in a defined territory outside North America
  • Pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials anticipated to start in the first quarter of calendar year 2014
  • The Company obtained patents during the quarter:

  • U.S. Patent 8,487,073, entitled "Melanocortin Receptor-Specific Peptides for Treatment of Sexual Dysfunction" issued July 16, 2013, claiming composition of matter on novel peptides for treatment of sexual dysfunction, obesity and related indications
  • U.S. Patent No. 8,492,517, entitled "Melanocortin-1 Receptor-Specific Cyclic Peptides" issued July 23, 2013, claiming composition of matter of lead peptides for treatment of inflammation-related diseases
  • First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results
    Palatin reported a net loss of $4.5 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $10.5 million, or $(0.15) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2012.The decrease in net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period last fiscal year was mainly attributable to the recognition of a $7.1 million, non-operating expense, in the quarter ended September 30, 2012, which represented the increase in fair value of warrants issued in connection with Palatin's private placement that closed on July 3, 2012.

    There were no revenues recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to $4,000 for the same period in 2012.  Revenue consisted entirely of reimbursement of development costs and per-employee compensation earned at the contractual rate pursuant to Palatin's license agreement with AstraZeneca. 

    Operating Expenses
    For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, total operating expenses were $4.5 million compared to $3.4 million for the comparable quarter of 2012.  The increase in operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was the result of an increase in costs primarily relating to Palatin's bremelanotide for the treatment of FSD program.

    Cash Position
    Palatin's cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $22.3 million as of September 30, 2013, compared to cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $24.4 million at June 30, 2013.  Current liabilities were $4.2 million as of September 30, 2013 compared to $2.1 million as of June 30, 2013.

    Palatin believes its existing capital resources will be adequate to fund its currently planned operations, including submitting complete protocols for pivotal Phase 3 studies to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) but not initiating patient enrollment, through at least calendar year 2014.
