Galectin Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

For the first quarter of 2012, the Company reported a net loss applicable to common stock of $2.2 million, or ($0.17) per share, basic and diluted, compared with a net loss of $2.7 million, or ($0.24) per share for the same period in 2011. Included in the losses was $0.3 million in non-cash dividend and accretion expenses related to the preferred stock for both the 2012 and 2011 periods and a $0.4 million non-cash expense related to the change in fair value of warrant liabilities in 2011.

Research and development expense for the first quarter of 2012 was $0.9 million, compared with $0.7 million for the same period in 2011. The increase is due primarily to greater pre-clinical activity in our fibrosis program and our clinical program related to our GM and GR compounds offset by decreased stock-based compensation.

General and administrative expense for the first quarter of 2012 was $1.1 million, compared with $1.3 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease is due primarily to lower payroll costs, decreased business development costs related to our marketing efforts in South America and decreased legal and accounting costs, offset by increased stock-based compensation.
