Affymax Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Affymax, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFFY) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $24.6 million (or ($0.68) per share) compared to a net loss of $9.8 million (or ($0.28) per share) for the third quarter of 2011.

Affymax recognized total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, of $13.6 million compared to $13.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 primarily consisted of a $10.4 million profit equalization payment earned from its partner, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (Takeda) related to OMONTYS ® (peginesatide) Injection product sales during the period. OMONTYS net product sales, as provided by Takeda, were $15.0 million for the quarter. In addition, Affymax earned a $2.25 million milestone payment from Takeda during the quarter as a result of the commercial progress achieved with OMONTYS during its product launch. Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 consisted of a $10 million regulatory milestone payment from Takeda and pre-approval research and development and commercialization expenses reimbursable by Takeda.

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, were $11.4 million compared to $14.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to reduced consultant and personnel-related costs as a result of the completion of both the filing of the OMONTYS New Drug Application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2011 and the preparation for an FDA advisory committee meeting which occurred in December 2011. These decreases were partially offset by clinical trial activity for the company’s Phase 3b trial during the current quarter.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, were $26.2 million compared to $8.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to increases in commercial and medical affairs costs, including personnel-related costs associated with the establishment of its commercial and medical affairs field organizations, as the company continues to execute on the launch and commercialization of OMONTYS.
