BioAlliance Pharma announces Q3 2007 results - Specialty pharma announces very strong growth in revenues and cash

Paris, France | Posted on October 29th, 2007

Q3 Highlights

  • Launch of the company's first product, Loramyc®, in France on September 4, 2007
  • Exclusive license agreement signed with Par Pharmaceutical for sales of Loramyc® in the USA. Total value USD 65 million plus significant royalties. Upfront payment USD 15 million.
  • Fund raising of EUR 40 million through private placement with qualified investors.

Financial details

  • Revenues for Q3 2007 were EUR 1.799 million, a very substantial increase over the EUR 102,000 recorded in Q3 2006.
  • As a result of the fund raising and upfront payments received from Par Pharmaceutical, the company's cash position has been significantly improved. On September 30, 2007, cash amounted to EUR 61.7 million, compared with EUR 19.4 million at the end of June 2007.

"Q3 2007 will go down in BioAlliance's history as a particularly significant quarter," said Nicolas Fellmann, CFO at BioAlliance Pharma. "The launch of BioAlliance's first product, Loramyc®, means the company is generating its first revenues by selling directly on the French market. We are implementing our international sales strategy and generating income through our agreement with Par Pharmaceutical in the USA, the upfront payment for which is being accounted for over two years. The two agreements already signed (with Par pharmaceutical in the USA and the creation of the SpeBio joint venture in Europe) have already brought in EUR 19 million to which we have added the EUR 40 million raised from qualified investors this summer."

"BioAlliance Pharma today has the financial resources to accelerate its development," said Dominque Costantini, CEO of BioAlliance. "With the first revenues derived from a product developed from start to finish by BioAlliance and with our partnership agreements, we are demonstrating the robustness of our specialty pharma model and its capacity to add value. We are determined to become a leading player in Europe."
