Aegerion Pharmaceuticals Announces Fourth-Quarter And Year-End 2012 Financial Results

Research and development expenses were $8.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $8.4 million for the same period in 2011. Research and development expenses were $25.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $24.4 million for the same period in 2011. The increase in research and development expenses in the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 over the comparable periods in 2011 was primarily related to increased headcount required to support the Company's regulatory and medical affairs activities, as well as costs for production validation runs, partially offset by decreases in clinical trial expenses related to trials which had been substantially completed in 2011.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $13.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to $4.3 million for the same period in 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $34.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $14.0 million for the same period in 2011. The increases in selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth-quarter and full-year 2012 over the comparable periods in 2011 were primarily related to costs of increased headcount to support the planned commercial launch of JUXTAPID and in administrative functions.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $82.2 million as of December 31, 2012, compared to $73.2 million as of December 31, 2011.
