ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Reports Financial Results For The Fourth Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

Stocks in this article: ACAD

ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ACAD), a biopharmaceutical company focused on innovative treatments that address unmet medical needs in neurological and related central nervous system disorders, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

ACADIA reported a net loss of $6.8 million, or $0.11 per common share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million, or $0.10 per common share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, ACADIA reported a net loss of $20.8 million, or $0.38 per common share, compared to a net loss of $22.8 million, or $0.44 per common share, for 2011.

At December 31, 2012, ACADIA’s cash, cash equivalents, and investment securities totaled $108.0 million compared to $31.0 million at December 31, 2011. This increase was primarily due to $98.2 million in net proceeds from sales of equity securities, including $80.5 million raised in an equity financing in December as well as earlier financings completed by ACADIA, offset in part by cash used to fund ACADIA’s operations.

“2012 was a transformational year for ACADIA, highlighted by the impressive results from our pivotal Phase III trial with pimavanserin in Parkinson’s disease psychosis and the strengthening of our balance sheet through our successful financing,” said Uli Hacksell, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of ACADIA. “We are now positioned with a strong foundation to continue to advance our pimavanserin Phase III Parkinson’s disease psychosis program toward registration and to strategically broaden this program to address other neurological disorders. This includes plans to initiate our second, confirmatory pivotal Phase III Parkinson’s disease psychosis trial in the first half of this year and a Phase II trial in Alzheimer’s disease psychosis in the second half of the year. We believe that our pipeline of product candidates, spearheaded by pimavanserin, provides ACADIA with multiple attractive product and commercial opportunities and significant growth potential.”
