Cyclacel Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYCC) (Nasdaq:CYCCP) (Cyclacel or the Company), a biopharmaceutical company developing oral therapies that target the various phases of cell cycle control for the treatment of cancer and other serious disorders, today reported its financial results and business highlights for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The net loss for the first quarters of 2013 and 2012 was $3.1 million and $3.0 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents totaled $14.1 million, which does not include $5.5 million received in April 2013 related to a non-dilutive transaction as detailed below. The Company's net loss applicable to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $11.6 million, which includes a one-time non-cash charge of approximately $8.4 million of deemed dividend on convertible exchangeable preferred shares, or $1.18 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $3.1 million or $0.40 per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2012.

"We continued to make progress in our SEAMLESS pivotal, Phase 3 study of sapacitabine as frontline treatment in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) having surpassed during the quarter one third of the required enrollment. We are excited that the updated survival data from our Phase 2 study of sapacitabine in older patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) after treatment failures of hypomethylating agents continue to be impressive and nearly double the expected median overall survival," said Spiro Rombotis, Cyclacel's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are also encouraged by the responses seen from the ongoing Phase 1 study of the sequential administration of sapacitabine and seliciclib in patients with advanced solid tumors who carry BRCA mutations. We are pleased to have our data from this sapacitabine and seliciclib study highlighted at an American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) press conference regarding major developments reported during the AACR Annual Meeting. In addition, the $ 5.5 million payment for the sale of four Cyclacel romidepsin-related patents and dismissal of the related litigation will allow us to concentrate on the development of our pipeline. We look forward to reporting updated data from our ongoing studies."
