Coronado Biosciences Reports Financial Results For The Fourth Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

BURLINGTON, Mass., March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coronado Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:CNDO), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel immunotherapy biologic agents for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancer, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

"We made significant strides in 2012 towards increasing the value of our product candidates and expanded our pipeline of clinical trials," said Dr. Harlan F. Weisman, Coronado's Chairman and CEO. "It was an important year for Coronado in that we signed a collaboration agreement with Dr. Falk Pharma GmbH (Falk) and Ovamed GmbH (Ovamed) for the development of TSO ( Trichuris suis ova or CNDO-201) for Crohn's disease, initiated TRUST-I, our phase 2 clinical trial of TSO in Crohn's disease, and initiated two investigator-initiated studies evaluating TSO in ulcerative colitis and autism spectrum disorders. Additionally, we commenced a phase 1/2 trial of CNDO-109 activated allogeneic natural killer (NK) cells, our second technology, in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). From a financial standpoint, in 2012, we conducted our first public offering with net proceeds of $26.5 million and secured a $15.0 million loan facility with Hercules Technology Growth Capital to further support our clinical development efforts.

"This is an exciting time for Coronado. We believe results from the two phase 2 trials in Crohn's disease, and possibly data from the autism study and the recently announced investigator-initiated psoriasis study, have the potential to positively validate the hygiene hypothesis and our mission to provide life-changing therapies for autoimmune diseases during 2013. We are committed to continuing our momentum throughout 2013, starting with the initiation of several more investigator-initiated studies for TSO in various autoimmune diseases in 2013."

Financial Highlights:

  • Coronado reported a net loss of $8.7 million, or $0.36 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss of $6.7 million, or $0.52 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Coronado reported a net loss of $ 27.6 million, or $1.27 per share, compared to a net loss of $36.4 million, or $4.74 per share before the common stock dividend to Series A Preferred Stockholders, for 2011.
  • Research and development expenses were $17.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $8.6 million for 2011. General and administrative expenses totaled $8.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $5.8 million for 2011. In 2012, R&D included expenses related to the TSO clinical program and G&A included expenses related to the company's infrastructure growth and increased business activity.
  • At December 31, 2012, Coronado's cash and cash equivalents totaled $40.2 million. During the first quarter of 2013, and through March 13, 2013, the company sold an aggregate of approximately 1.4 million shares of common stock under an at market issuance facility for net proceeds of $10.5 million.
