A.P. Pharma Announces Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results And Reports On Recent Corporate Progress

A.P. Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB:APPA.PK), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2011 and highlighted its recent corporate progress.

Operational Highlights

  • On May 2, 2011, A.P. Pharma closed a private placement financing for $1.5 million in convertible notes, with an additional $3.0 million available to the Company at the investors’ discretion within two years of the closing date.
  • On June 29, 2011, the Company announced it entered into a definitive agreement for a $24.0 million private placement of common stock and warrants. The financing closed on July 1, 2011.
  • In July 2011, the Company enrolled its first patient in a thorough QT study for APF530. The study will examine the effect of APF530 on the QT interval in healthy volunteers. In order to start the thorough QT study promptly, the Company decided to separate this study from a planned metabolism study. The Company expects to report the results of both studies in Q1 2012.

“Following the close of our recent financing, we initiated the planned thorough QT study for APF530,” said John Whelan, A.P. Pharma's president and chief executive officer. “As a result of the study’s timely start, we believe that we continue to be on track to resubmit the APF530 New Drug Application during the first half of 2012.”

Results of Operations

A.P. Pharma’s net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $1.9 million, or $0.05 per share, compared with a net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.09 per share, for the second quarter of 2010. The net loss was lower in the current fiscal quarter primarily due to expenses related to the resignation of the Company's former chief executive officer during the second quarter of 2010 and $0.6 million of lower spending in the current fiscal quarter related to the New Drug Application (NDA) resubmission. In May 2011, the Company received notice of termination from Merial Limited related to an agreement covering a product under development in the animal health care market. As a result, all remaining deferred revenues under this agreement were substantially recognized in the current fiscal quarter.
