Sarepta Therapeutics Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Financial Results And Recent Corporate Developments

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: SRPT), a developer of innovative RNA-based therapeutics, today reported financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, and provided an update of recent corporate developments.

“We continue to be encouraged by the eteplirsen clinical data through 120 weeks and the general stability we’ve observed on the 6-minute walk test and pulmonary function measures,” said Chris Garabedian, president and chief executive officer of Sarepta Therapeutics. “We look forward to our continued discussions with the FDA to gain clarity in the coming weeks on the clinical path forward for eteplirsen.”

Financial Results

For the fourth quarter of 2013, Sarepta reported a non-GAAP net loss of $29.1 million, or $0.77 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $8.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, or $0.34 per share. The incremental loss is primarily the result of a $4.7 million decrease in contract revenues as well as a $15.5 million increase in non-GAAP operating expenses, due to corporate growth.

On a GAAP basis, the net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $8.8 million, or $0.23 per share (including $3.7 million of stock-based compensation and restructuring expenses), compared with a net loss of $62.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, or $2.36 per share (including $1.4 million of stock-based compensation and restructuring expenses). The decrease in net loss is the result of a $75.8 million decrease in expense incurred due to the change in valuation of the Company’s outstanding warrants, offset by a $4.7 million decrease in contract revenues and a $17.8 million increase in operating expenses.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.6 million, down from $7.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The $4.7 million decrease was primarily due to the August 2012 stop-work-order and subsequent termination for convenience of the Ebola portion of the Ebola-Marburg U.S. government contract due to a lack of available U.S. government funding. The termination of the Ebola portion did not impact the Marburg portion of the contract. Revenues from the Marburg portion of the contract also decreased during the fourth quarter of 2013 due to the timing of activities throughout the normal progression of the contract. These decreases were partially offset by revenue from the Company’s European Union SKIP-NMD agreement supporting development of an exon 53 skipping therapeutic.
