YORK, Pa., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Unilife Corporation ("Unilife" or "Company") (NASDAQ: UNIS; ASX: UNS), a developer and supplier of injectable drug delivery systems, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, (the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2014).
Mr. Alan Shortall, CEO of Unilife, commented: "As I have said all along, fiscal year 2014 is the inflection point for Unilife when we begin to show rapidly increasing revenue. As such, we reported revenue of $3.2 million in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2014, which is an increase of 360% over the same quarter in the prior year. Although the comparison is against a small base, it is significant in that it shows the inflection point in our revenue. From here, I expect the slope to be significant.
"As we continue to increase our investment in R&D and operations, which is increasingly offset by our revenue, we are also narrowing our operating loss. As such, we have reported a 10% decrease in operating loss for the first quarter compared with the prior year period. The loss per share has narrowed by 25% to $0.12, compared with the prior year period. I anticipate sequential quarterly growth in Fiscal Year 2014, as well as significant annual growth this fiscal year and beyond.
"We are focused on rapid and significant growth in the long-term. To accomplish this, we will continue to increase our investment in R&D and operations, much of which will be offset by our increasing revenue. I am pleased with the results we are getting from our investment in these areas. A look at the breadth and quality of our product portfolio on our website shows how far we have come over the last two or three years. Although we can be cash flow positive this year, if we wanted to do so, it is not in the best long term interest of our shareholders. This is because limiting our investment in R&D today can dampen the growth we anticipate in 2017 and beyond," Mr. Shortall concluded.
Financial Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2013Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013, was $3.2 million compared to $0.7 million for the same period in 2012.
The Company's net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013, was $11.2 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $12.5 million, or $0.16 per share, for the same period in 2012. Adjusted net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013, was $7.1 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to $9.1 million, or $0.12 per share, for the same period in 2012. Adjusted net loss excludes non-cash share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization and interest expense.
Unilife reported $9.4 million of total cash and cash equivalents, including $2.0 million in restricted cash as of September 30, 2013. This does not reflect the first $5 million payment from Sanofi under the commercial supply agreement, which was received in October 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements. All statements that address operating performance, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Our management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made. However, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements because such statements speak only as of the date when made. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, events and developments to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in "Item 1A. Risk Factors" and elsewhere in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and those described from time to time in other reports which we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresU.S. securities laws require that when we publish any non-GAAP financial measure, we disclose the reason for using the non-GAAP measure and provide reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted net income (loss) represents net income (loss) calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization and interest expense.
Management believes the presentation of adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share provides useful information because these measures enhance its own evaluation, as well as investor's understanding, of the Company's core operating and financial results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to adjusted net income (loss) is included in the attached table.
