TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Transition Therapeutics Inc. ("Transition" or the "Company") (TSX: TTH; NASDAQ: TTHI), a product-focused biopharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for disease indications with large markets, today announced its financial results for the three month period ended September 30, 2012.
During the three month period ended September 30, 2012 and up to the date of this press release, the Company announced the following:
On August 30, 2012, Transition announced that their licensing partner
Elan had dosed the first patient in a Phase 2 clinical study of ELND005
in Bipolar Disorder. The study is a placebo-controlled, safety and efficacy study of oral
ELND005 as an adjunctive maintenance treatment in patients with Bipolar
1 Disorder to delay the time to occurrence of mood episodes. As the
first patient has been dosed in the study, Transition has received a
milestone payment of US$11million from Elan.
The Company's cash and cash equivalents and short term investments were $16,323,440 at September 30, 2012. On October 1, 2012, the Company received the US$11 million milestone payment from Elan.
The Company's current cash projection indicates that the current cash resources should enable the Company to execute its core business plan and meet its projected cash requirements well beyond the next 12 months.
During the three month period ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded net income of $7,736,046 ($0.29 income per common share) compared to a net loss of $2,870,757 ($0.12 loss per common share) for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.
Revenue for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 is $10,815,200 compared to nil in the three month period ended September 30, 2011.
In August 2012, Elan dosed the first patient in a Phase 2 clinical study of ELND005 in Bipolar Disorder, triggering the next milestone payment of US$11million under the amended agreement with Elan. The milestone payment was recognized as revenue during the three-month period ending September 30, 2012.
Research and development expenses decreased to $2,054,546 for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 from $2,253,724 for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. The decrease of $199,178 or 9% is primarily due to decreases in clinical development costs related to TT-301/302 and salaries and related costs associated with headcount reductions. The decrease is largely offset by increased clinical development costs related to TT-401/402.
General and administrative expenses decreased to $816,902 for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 from $1,090,046 for the comparative period ended September 30, 2011. The decrease of $273,144 or 25% is due to decreases in legal consulting fees, facility lease costs, and investor relation and business development expenses, as well as decreased salaries and related costs resulting from headcount reductions.
Transition is a biopharmaceutical company, developing novel therapeutics for disease indications with large markets. Transition's lead product is ELND005 for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and bipolar disorder. Transition also has an emerging pipeline of innovative preclinical and clinical drug candidates. The other drugs in the pipeline that the Company is developing are for anti-inflammatory and metabolic indications. Transition's shares are listed on the NASDAQ under the symbol "TTHI" and the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "TTH".
