Stemline Therapeutics Reports Year-End 2012 Financial Results

NEW YORK, April 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stemline Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:STML) (the "Company"), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing oncology therapeutics that target both cancer stem cells (CSCs) and tumor bulk, reported today its year-end 2012 financial results.

The Company completed its initial public offering of common stock in January 2013, which provided gross proceeds to the Company (including the exercise of the over-allotment option) of approximately $38.2 million, and net proceeds of approximately $32.5 million after underwriting fees and offering expenses. At December 31, 2012, prior to completion of the IPO, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of over $2.0 million, as compared to $5.8 million at December 31, 2011.

"With the successful completion of our $38.2 million IPO in January 2013, we believe that we have sufficient capital to advance our clinical programs, SL-401 and SL-701, to key milestones," said Ivan Bergstein, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Stemline Therapeutics.

The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $6.3 million, or $1.82 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.80 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2011, which represents an increase in net loss of $3.5 million. The change in net loss in the year ended December 31, 2012, as compared to 2011, was primarily attributable to increased costs relating to the development of our clinical programs and costs associated with building infrastructure in anticipation of becoming a public company.
