Arrowhead Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results - Conference Call Today at 4:30 p.m Eastern Time

Pasadena, CA | Posted on August 7th, 2013

Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter and Recent Company Highlights

Strengthened the balance sheet with a $36 million financing from a syndicate of high-quality biotech investors. This provided sufficient capital to fund development into 2015;
Successfully completed the Clinical Trial Notification regulatory process in Australia for ARC-520; and
Initiated dosing in a Phase 1 trial of ARC-520 with the second of six planned dose cohorts scheduled to be completed today.

Selected Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results

Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $6.4 million, compared to 6.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Net loss attributable to Arrowhead for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $6.1 million, or $0.23 per share based on 26.1 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares with a net loss attributable to Arrowhead of $8.0 million, or $0.71 per share based on 11.2 million weighted average shares outstanding, for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Net cash used in operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $13.6 million, compared with $10.8 million in the prior year period. The increase in cash used in operating activities reflects final pre-clinical requirements, including GMP manufacturing and GLP toxicology, to enable our HBV candidate, ARC-520, to enter clinical trials.

The company's cash and short-term investments were $33.1 million at June 30, 2013, compared to $3.4 million at September 30, 2012. The increase in our cash balance reflects the $36 million offering closed in May 2013. During the first nine months of the fiscal year, cash outlays for R&D were $10.1 million, and cash used in G&A were $4.4 million. Cash inflows during the first nine months of the fiscal year included $42.5 million from the sale of equity securities, $500,000 in revenue, and $1.2 million in proceeds related to the sale of our former subsidiary, Unidym.

Shares outstanding at June 30, 2013, were 31.3 million up 17.7 million from 13.6 million at September 30, 2012.

About ARC-520

Approximately 350 million people worldwide are chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus. Chronic HBV infection can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and is responsible for 80% of primary liver cancers globally. Arrowhead's RNAi-based candidate ARC-520 is designed to treat chronic HBV infection by reducing the expression and release of new viral particles and key viral proteins. The goal is to achieve a functional cure, which is an immune clearant state characterized by hepatitis B s-antigen negative serum with or without sero-conversion. The siRNAs in ARC-520 intervene at the point of DNA transcription, upstream of where nucleotide and nucleoside analogues act. In transient and transgenic mouse models of HBV infection, a single co-injection of Arrowhead's DPC delivery vehicle with cholesterol-conjugated siRNA targeting HBV sequences resulted in multi-log knockdown of HBV RNA, proteins and viral DNA with long duration of effect. In a chimpanzee chronically infected with HBV and high viremia and antigenemia, ARC-520 induced rapid reductions of 90-95% in HBV DNA, e-antigen, and s-antigen. Arrowhead is conducting a phase 1 single ascending dose study in normal volunteers, which the company expects to follow with a phase 2a study in chronic HBV patients.
