EntreMed Reports Fourth Quarter And Year-End 2009 Financial Results

ROCKVILLE, Md., March 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EntreMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: ENMD), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, today reported results for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2009.

For fiscal year 2009, revenues were $5.3 million versus $7.5 million for 2008.  For the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company reported a net loss of ( $9.2 million) or ($0.11) per share, versus ( $24.9 million), or ($0.29) per share, for fiscal year 2008.  As of December 31, 2009, the Company had cash and short-term investments of approximately $6.4 million.

Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009 were $1.6 million compared to $4.0 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008. The Company reported a net loss of ( $2.0 million), or ($.03) per share for the three months ended December 31, 2009.  This compares with a net loss of ( $2.8 million), or ($0.04) per share for the fourth quarter 2008.

Kathy R. Wehmeir-Davis, Principal Accounting Officer, commented, "Focusing our efforts and resources on the clinical development of our lead product candidate, ENMD-2076, resulted in a reduction in R&D expenses to $7.9 million in 2009 from $20.7 million in 2008.  With no plans to initiate further trials for our other programs, we anticipate that R&D expenses for the compounds currently in clinical trials will continue to decrease as patients come off current studies.  However, we intend to commence Phase 2 studies with ENMD-2076 in the second quarter, which we expect will increase R&D expenses in 2010."  

Executive Chairman of the Board, Michael M. Tarnow commented, "In 2009, we continued to focus our resources on accelerating the clinical development of ENMD-2076.  While maximizing our human and financial resources, we made excellent progress in our clinical program with ENMD-2076.  Phase 1 trials were completed in several oncology indications, a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) was determined, and we identified ovarian cancer as our initial indication for Phase 2 studies.  Although we made good progress with the program, the current economic climate has been difficult to weather.  We were able to secure additional capital in two separate registered direct offerings early this year, which will enable us to move forward with our clinical development plans for ENMD-2076.  Senior Management and the Board continue to exercise prudent financial judgment and remain committed to our clinical development strategy set forth for this exciting oncology drug candidate."
