Clovis Oncology Announces Second Quarter 2012 Operating Results

Stocks in this article: CLVS

Clovis Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLVS) today reported financial results for the second quarter 2012, and provided an update on the progress of its clinical development programs and expected milestones for the rest of the year.

“We had a productive second quarter and continued to make progress in each of our programs,” said Patrick J. Mahaffy, President and CEO of Clovis Oncology. “We are seeking to expand our pipeline through our collaboration with Array BioPharma for the discovery of a novel mutant KIT inhibitor; each of our three current clinical programs continues to advance, and most importantly, we remain on track to announce the results from our pivotal LEAP trial of CO-101 in metastatic pancreatic cancer during the fourth quarter this year.”

2012 Financial Results and Outlook

Clovis reported a net loss of $15.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, and $34.7 million for the first half of 2012. This compares to a net loss of $18.5 million for the second quarter and $26.8 million for the first six months of 2011. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.61 per share and $1.45 per share for the year to date, compared to $14.32 per share for the second quarter and $21.07 per share for first six months of 2011.

Research and development expenses totaled $12.6 million for the second quarter and $25.2 million for first half of 2012, compared to $9.7 million for the second quarter and $16.7 million for the first six months of 2011. The increase in research and development expenses over the comparable periods in 2011 was driven by the in-licensing of rucaparib in June 2011, expanded development activities for CO-101 and an increase in internal resources to manage the Company’s development programs.

General and administrative expenses totaled $2.7 million for the second quarter and $5.1 million for the first six months of 2012, compared to $1.7 million for the second quarter and $3.1 million for the first six months of 2011. The increase in general and administrative expenses over the comparable periods in 2011 was primarily due to increased internal resources and third party costs to support the activities associated with being a public company.
