Home > Press > Arrowhead Reports Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Financial Results

Abstract:
Arrowhead Research Corporation (NASDAQ: ARWR), a nanomedicine company with development programs in oncology and obesity, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2012 first quarter ended December 31, 2011.
"The first quarter of fiscal 2012 saw transformational change for Arrowhead," said Dr. Christopher Anzalone, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the acquisition of the Roche's RNAi assets and facility, we now have a more complete set of capabilities to advance our own RNAi therapeutic pipeline products and are positioned as a more attractive partner to larger companies interested in this area. We have also made important progress on our obesity program which has been cleared by the FDA to initiate human clinical trials."

Selected Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Financial Results

Due to the added costs associated with the research facility we acquired from Roche and its people and research programs, operating expenses increased significantly during the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Net loss attributable to Arrowhead for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $2.5 million, or $0.25 per share based on 10,121,069 weighted average shares outstanding. This compares with a net loss attributable to Arrowhead of $1.4 million, or $0.20 per share based on 7,177,941 weighted average shares outstanding, for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.

The Company's net cash used in operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $2.7 million, compared with $0.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.
