Furiex Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Furiex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: FURX) today reported its financial and operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Total revenues were $3.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $13.1 million for the same period in the prior year. The primary driver of the decrease was the fact that in May 2012 the Company recorded a $10.0 million regulatory milestone payment from Takeda with respect to the acceptance of the submission of a Marketing Authorization Application from the European Medicines Agency for alogliptin.

Furiex recorded second quarter royalty revenue of $3.0 million, compared to $3.1 million for the same period in the prior year. Royalty revenue included royalties related to Nesina and Liovel ® sales in Japan, and Priligy sales in various countries outside of the United States.

Research and development expenses were $22.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $30.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The level of research and development expense during the current quarter relates primarily to the clinical trial and manufacturing costs associated with the continued development of eluxadoline. The level of quarterly research and development costs, including drug manufacture, patient recruitment, clinical monitoring and related pass-through costs, can vary significantly from quarter to quarter based on the timing of specific activities associated with the on-going Phase I and Phase III clinical trials for eluxadoline.

Second quarter selling, general and administrative expenses were $3.2 million for 2013, compared to $2.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The change in selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter was due primarily to fluctuations in non-cash stock compensation expense, including the mark-to-market adjustment for non-vested consultant options.

Interest expense of $1.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 related entirely to our loan agreement with MidCap Funding III, LLC, Midcap Funding RE Holdings, LLC and Silicon Valley Bank.
