Somaxon Pharmaceuticals Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results; Company Announces Access To Up To $45 Million In Financing

Somaxon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SOMX), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. For the second quarter of 2011, Somaxon reported net product sales of $6.2 million, compared to net product sales of $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2011. The company had no product sales in the second quarter of 2010. The net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $14.9 million, or a loss of $0.33 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.7 million, or a loss of $0.16 per share, in the second quarter of 2010.

Somaxon also announced that it has obtained a $15 million term loan from Oxford Finance Corporation and Silicon Valley Bank. Additionally, the company has entered into an “At-the-Market” (ATM) equity offering sales agreement with Citadel Securities LLC, under which Somaxon may from time to time offer and sell shares of its common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $30 million through Citadel. Somaxon expects to use the aggregate funds of up to $45 million to, among other things, satisfy working capital needs in the commercial activities relating to Silenor®, the company’s first FDA-approved product indicated for the treatment of insomnia characterized by difficulty with sleep maintenance.

“During the second quarter of 2011, we continued to make positive strides towards Silenor’s long-term commercial success by increasing Silenor net product sales to $6.2 million and growing Silenor prescriptions by over 36% over the previous quarter,” said Richard W. Pascoe, Somaxon’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, we continued to make solid progress with our managed care contracting efforts, so that we now have approximately 159 million covered lives in a Tier 2, 3 or 4 unrestricted position and approximately 110 million covered lives on contracted formularies.”

“Moreover, having access to additional working capital further supports our financial position as we continue these commercial activities and as we seek to leverage our sales force to broaden our product portfolio, with the goal of building a sustainable business dedicated to delivering long-term stockholder value,” continued Pascoe.
