Trimeris Reports Financial Results For The First Quarter 2011

Trimeris, Inc., (NASDAQ: TRMS) today reported first quarter 2011 financial results. Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $67,000 or $0.00 per share compared with net income of $988,000, or $0.04 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2010. The Company reported adjusted net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 of $269,000 compared to adjusted net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 of $68,000.

Comparisons of net income between the quarters ended March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2010 are affected by several items detailed in the section below entitled “Adjusted (Non-GAAP) Financial Information.”

Cash Position

As of March 31, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and investment securities totaled $47.3 million compared to $45.2 million as of December 31, 2010.

Collaboration Income

Collaboration income from our collaboration with F. Hoffman-LaRoche, Ltd. (“Roche”) for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $1.3 million compared with $1.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2010. Net sales of FUZEON in the U.S. and Canada for the first quarter of 2011 declined seven percent to $6.7 million, from $7.2 million for the same period in 2010. This net sales decline was completely offset by reduced selling and marketing expenses and cost of goods sold.

Royalty Revenue

Royalty revenue from Roche for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $262,000 compared with $1.9 million for the same period in 2010. This decrease was primarily driven by lower sales outside the U.S. and Canada (“ROW”) and the reduction of the royalty rate from 12% to 6% for ROW sales imposed by Roche and described in more detail below.

ROW net sales of FUZEON for the first quarter of 2011 were $5.2 million, down 70 percent from $17.2 million for the same period in 2010. A significant portion of this decline in net sales resulted from the variability in quarterly buying patterns of specific countries that either did not purchase during the quarter (Brazil) or purchased significantly reduced quantities (Mexico and Romania).
