Arrowhead Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Financial Results

Pasadena, CA | Posted on February 13th, 2013

"Fiscal 2012 was a productive building year for Arrowhead as we acquired substantial RNAi assets and the world's largest human-derived peptide targeting library," said Dr. Christopher Anzalone, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are now in a position to begin demonstrating the value of these programs in 2013. This means entering the clinic with what we believe to be a potential breakthrough hepatitis B treatment; continuing clinical studies in our obesity program; building new clinical candidates; publishing data demonstrating the power of our platforms and candidates; and entering into new collaborations and partnerships. As such, we achieved some key milestones in the first fiscal quarter and expect to achieve significant milestones throughout the year."

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter and Recent Company Highlights

Program and Pipeline Highlights

Advanced manufacturing and GLP toxicology studies of ARC-520, with regulatory filing expected in Q2 2013 to begin first-in-man studies;

Presented data at multiple scientific conferences including data on new DPC subcutaneous formulation showing 99% target gene knockdown in non-human primates without observed toxicity;

Published studies in the journal Nucleic Acid Therapeutics demonstrating high levels of knockdown in non-human primates using cholesterol-conjugated siRNA, DPCs, and a novel co-injection strategy;

Received additional patents on the DPC siRNA delivery system;

Established a Clinical Advisory Board for hepatitis B including prominent hepatologist Dr. Robert G. Gish;

Business Development Highlights

Entered into a Collaboration and License Agreement with Shire for peptide-targeted therapeutics that includes research funding for Arrowhead, up to $32.8 million in potential milestone payments, and royalties on sales;

Financial Highlights

Strengthened the balance sheet through equity financings with gross proceeds of $7.5 million.

Selected Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Financial Results

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 were $5.0 million, compared to $4.1 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Net loss attributable to Arrowhead for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $4.6 million, or $0.33 per share based on 14.1 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares with a net loss attributable to Arrowhead of $2.5 million, or $0.25 per share based on 10.1 million weighted average shares outstanding, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

During the three months ended December 31, 2012, net cash used in operating activities was $3.8 million, compared to $2.7 million during the prior year quarter.

The company's cash position was $2.9 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $3.4 million at September 30, 2012. During the quarter, the cash decrease of $0.5 million was due to operating cash flow of $3.8 million offset by cash flow from financing activities of $3.3 million. During January an additional financing yielded net proceeds of $3.3 million.
