Palatin Technologies, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year End 2013 Results

CRANBURY, N.J., Sept. 30, 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 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. 

Fiscal Year and Recent Highlights

  • Bremelanotide development for Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD):
  • Completed a successful Phase 2B clinical trial and productive end-of-Phase 2 meetings with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials anticipated to initiate patient dosing in the first quarter of calendar year 2014
  • Obesity Collaboration with AstraZeneca:
  • AstraZeneca is evaluating the program and next steps following discontinuation of further development of AZD2820
  • A number of collaboration compounds are in various stages of preclinical testing
  • Intellectual property developments:
  • Two United States patents issued in the melanocortin field in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013
  • Palatin has advanced its bremelanotide, PL-3994, and new melanocortin peptide patent applications in countries outside the United States
  • Equity financing:
  • On July 3, 2012, Palatin closed on a $35.0 million private placement.  The offering consisted of the sale of 3,873,000 shares of common stock, Series A 2012 warrants to purchase 31,988,151 shares of common stock, and Series B 2012 warrants to purchase 35,488,380 shares of common stock 
  • Net proceeds to Palatin after deducting offering expenses were $34.4 million 
  • Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year End 2013 Results
    Palatin reported a net loss of $4.7 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million, or $(0.14) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2012.The decrease in net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to the net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was mainly the result of a decrease in costs related to our bremelanotide for FSD program. 

    Palatin's net loss for the year ended June 30, 2013 was $20.9 million, or $(0.21) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $17.3 million, or $(0.49) per basic and diluted share, for the year ended June 30, 2012. 

    The increase in net loss for the year ended June 30, 2013 compared to the net loss for the year ended June 30, 2012 was mainly attributable to the recognition of a $7.1 million non-cash charge to expense for the increase in the fair value of warrants related to the July 3, 2012 private placement offering partially offset by the decrease in costs related to our bremelanotide for FSD program.

    There were no revenues recorded in the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $11,000 for the same period in 2012.  For the year ended June 30, 2013, revenues were $10,000, compared to $74,000 for year ended June 30, 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 June 30, 2013, total operating expenses were $4.7 million compared to $5.7 million for the comparable quarter of 2012.  For the year ended June 30, 2013, total operating expenses were $15.6 million compared to $18.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2012. The decreases in operating expenses for the respective periods was primarily the result of  a decrease in costs related to our bremelanotide for FSD program, and secondarily as a result of closing our research laboratory operations in connection with the lease expiration of our laboratory facilities in July 2012.

    Cash Position
    Palatin's cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $24.4 million as of June 30, 2013, compared to cash and cash equivalents of $3.8 million at June 30, 2012, with current liabilities of $2.1 million as of June 30, 2013 compared to $3.5 million as of June 30, 2012.

    Palatin believes its existing capital resources will be adequate to fund its currently planned operations through at least calendar year 2014. Palatin does not intend to initiate patient enrollment in the Phase 3 studies with bremelanotide for FSD unless it has adequate funds, or commitments for adequate funds, to complete the Phase 3 program.
