Transcept Pharmaceuticals Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Conference call scheduled for 4:30 PM Eastern time today

POINT RICHMOND, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Transcept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSPT), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary products that address important therapeutic needs in the field of neuroscience, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Intermezzo® (zolpidem tartrate) sublingual tablet C-IV is the first FDA approved Transcept product and is being marketed in the United States by Purdue Pharmaceutical Products L.P. (Purdue) under the terms of a collaboration agreement between Transcept and Purdue.

Transcept reported cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $98.7 million at September 30, 2012, which included the receipt of a $10.0 million milestone payment from Purdue.

"As the Intermezzo launch advances, Purdue continues to refine their understanding of the insomnia landscape and reshape the substantial Intermezzo promotional effort now underway," stated Glenn A. Oclassen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Transcept. "It is clear that further effort is needed to educate physicians and patients about middle of the night awakenings as an important manifestation of insomnia. We are working closely with Purdue to address this need and to support the future success of Intermezzo."

Three months ended September 30, 2012 financial results
Transcept recorded $10.4 million in revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to $0.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Revenue during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 included a $10.0 million milestone payment from Purdue for the listing of a Transcept method of use patent in the FDA's Orange Book, $0.2 million of royalties based on Purdue net sales of Intermezzo to wholesalers, and $0.2 million from Purdue for a non-refundable option to negotiate for the commercialization of Intermezzo in Mexico and Canada. Revenue for the same period in 2011 consisted of $0.6 million of license fees for recognition of a portion of the $25.0 million up-front license fee received from Purdue in connection with the collaboration agreement for commercialization of Intermezzo in the United States. All revenue from this up-front license fee was recognized by year-end 2011.

Research and development expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $3.1 million, compared to $2.7 million for the same period in 2011. Research and development expense in both periods was primarily attributable to expense associated with our Phase 2 study for the TO-2061 development program. Research and development expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 included $0.5 million of severance and benefit continuation expense related to the reduction in force announced in July 2011. Research and development expense included non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.2 million for each of the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

General and administrative expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $2.5 million, compared to $2.9 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease in general and administrative expense was primarily attributable to $0.5 million of severance and benefit continuation expense recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2011 related to the reduction in force announced in July 2011. General and administrative expense included non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.5 million for each of the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $4.9 million, or $0.26 per share (basic) and $0.25 per share (diluted), compared to a net loss of $5.0 million, or $0.37 per share (basic and diluted), for the same period in 2011. This increase in net income was primarily attributable to the $10.0 million method of use patent milestone payment related to the Purdue collaboration agreement. The weighted average shares used to calculate basic and diluted net income per share were 18,567,833 and 19,231,656, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The weighted average shares used to calculate basic and diluted net loss per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 were 13,521,965. At September 30, 2012, there were 18,578,159 common shares outstanding and 3,313,751 common shares underlying outstanding options and warrants.

Nine months ended September 30, 2012 financial results
Transcept recorded $10.9 million in revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 compared to $6.9 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. Revenue during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 included a $10.0 million milestone payment from Purdue for the listing of a Transcept method of use patent in the FDA's Orange Book, $0.7 million of royalties based on Purdue net sales of Intermezzo to wholesalers, and $0.2 million from Purdue for a non-refundable option to negotiate for the commercialization of Intermezzo in Mexico and Canada. Revenue for the same period in 2011 consisted of $6.9 million of license fees for recognition of a portion of the $25.0 million up-front license fee received from Purdue in connection with the collaboration agreement for commercialization of Intermezzo in the United States. All revenue from this up-front license fee was recognized by year-end 2011.

Research and development expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $8.3 million, compared to $7.9 million for the same period in 2011. Research and development expense in both periods was primarily attributable to expense associated with our Phase 2 study for the TO-2061 development program. Research and development expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 included severance and benefit continuation expense of $0.5 million related to our July 2011 reduction-in-force. Research and development expense included non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

General and administrative expense for the each of the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 was $8.0 million. General and administrative expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2011 included $0.5 million severance and benefit continuation expense related to our July 2011 reduction-in-force as well as non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.2 million for stock option modifications to two members of our Board of Directors.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $5.5 million, or $0.33 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a net loss of $9.2 million, or $0.68 per share (basic and diluted), for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to the $10.0 million method of use patent milestone payment related to the Purdue collaboration agreement. The weighted average shares used to calculate basic and diluted net loss per share were 16,523,037 and 13,490,588 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.
