Palatin Technologies' CEO Discusses F4Q12 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Stocks in this article: PTN

Regarding cost and expenses, total operating cost for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 were $5.7 million compared to $4.7 million for the same period in 2011. Staying on cost and expenses, for the year ended June 30, 2012, total operating expenses were $18.9 million compared to $15.1 million for the year ended June 30, 2011. The increase in costs for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2012 compared to the quarter and year-end June 30, 2011, is a result of cost related to our FSD trial with bremelanotide which is currently in Phase 2B.

Regarding our cash position, as of June 30, 2012, our cash and cash equivalents were $3.8 million and we have current liabilities of $3.5 million. This compared to cash and cash equivalents of $18.9 million and current liabilities of $2.8 million as of June 30, 2011. In July 2012, Palatin closed on a $35 million private placement with the net proceeds after deducting operating expenses, amounting to $34.5 million.

Palatin’s audited financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2012, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, includes an audit opinion that contains a growing concern explanatory paragraph from our auditors KPMG related to certain redemption rights for Series B 2012 warrants issued in our July 2012 private placement in the event that stockholders do not approve an increase in authorized shares of common stock by a specific period.

Thank you, Steve. And now for an update of our programs, starting with our obesity and diabetes melanocortin-4 receptor program which is partnered with AstraZeneca. This program is run under the direction of AstraZeneca. As we have previously reported, AstraZeneca has discontinued development of the clinical candidate AZD2820. This decision was based on a single severe adverse event experienced by an obese patient in a Phase I trial of AZD2820. AstraZeneca has competed an investigation of this severe adverse event and it appears that this severe adverse event was not cardiovascular related, and while not confirmed, it could not be excluded that the severe adverse event was linked to AZD2820.
