Opexa Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results And Provides Corporate Update

“The meeting we recently held with clinical trial investigators at the annual American Academy of Neurology conference was well attended and included some of the most influential MS opinion leaders participating in the discussions related to our clinical trial design and enrollment criteria. We are anticipating strong enrollment once we are able to begin the trial, driven by the support of the clinicians and a strong desire from patients to participate. SPMS is understood to be a very serious medical condition coupled with the fact that patients have limited treatment options. We hope that Tovaxin can eventually develop into a treatment of choice, not only for SPMS but for all MS patients.”

“As of the end of the first quarter, our cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $4.7 million and our monthly burn rate for the quarter was approximately $810,000, inclusive of increased cash expenditures to support preparations for the initiation of the planned Phase IIb clinical study in North America.”

First Quarter Financial Results

Opexa reported no commercial revenues in the three months ended March 31, 2012 or in the comparable prior-year period.

Research and development expenses were $1,490,097 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared with $685,161 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in expenses was primarily related to an increase in the procurement and use of laboratory reagents and supplies, and increases in professional service fees, employee personnel costs, facility costs and non-cash stock compensation expense.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $816,196, compared with $592,058 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in expense is due to increases in business development activities, legal expenses, employee compensation expense and non-cash stock compensation expense.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $67,355 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $29,634 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in expense is due to increases in depreciation for facility build-out costs, and increases in depreciation for laboratory, manufacturing and information technology equipment acquired during 2011 and 2012.
