MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.
For the fourth quarter of 2012, total operating expenses were $33.5 million, compared to $30.6 million for the same quarter of 2011, an increase of $2.9 million. Research and development (R&D) expenses were $25.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $20.2 million for the same quarter of 2011, an increase of $5.1 million. This 25.2% increase was primarily due to increased clinical trial related activities for the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the same quarter of 2011. General and administrative (G&A) expenses were $8.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to $10.3 million for the same quarter of 2011, a decrease of $2.1 million. This 20.4% decrease in G&A expense was primarily due to decreased legal expenses during the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to the same quarter of 2011.
Other expense of $13.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 was primarily due to an adjustment in the fair value of a forward purchase contract with a related party settled in December 2012.
For fiscal year 2012, operating expenses totaled $147.0 million, compared to $140.6 million for fiscal year 2011, an increase of $6.4 million. Total R&D expenses were $101.5 million for fiscal year 2012, compared to $100.0 million for fiscal year 2011, an increase of $1.5 million. This 1.5% increase was primarily due to increased clinical trial-related expenses of $24.9 million, offset by the non-recurrence of $16.0 million in expenses recorded during fiscal year 2011 in connection with the settlement of the terminated insulin supply agreement and decreased salary-related expenses of $8.6 million resulting from the February 2011 restructuring. G&A expenses were $45.5 million for fiscal year 2012, compared to $40.6 million for fiscal year 2011, an increase of $4.9 million. This 12.1% increase was primarily due to $6.5 million in non-cash litigation settlement expenses incurred during fiscal year 2012, partially offset by decreased salary-related costs as a result of the February 2011 reduction in force.
