- Beginning Third Year of $118.4 Million BARDA Advance Research and Development Contract
- Balance Sheet Strengthened With $3,225,000 Financing
- Net Cash Used In Operations Reduced To Only $279,000 During the Quarter
Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: AOLS), a biotechnology company leveraging significant government funding to develop a platform of novel compounds to protect against radiological and chemical threats and for use in oncology, announced today financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2012.
The Company reported a net income of approximately $4,028,000, which includes a non-cash adjustment for decreases in valuation of warrants of approximately $4,510,000 related to decreases in the fair value of warrants that are included as a component of other income (expenses) in the statement of operations, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to a net income of approximately $2,977,000, which includes a non-cash adjustment for decreases in valuation of warrants of approximately $3,688,000 related to decreases in the fair value of warrants that are included as a component of other income (expenses) in the statement of operations, for the three months ended December 31, 2011
"We've completed the second year of our contract with BARDA, which has allowed us to leverage our shareholder's investment with $19.5 million of funding for the advanced development of our lead drug AEOL 10150. Our team has delivered key development milestones, such as developing and validating murine and NHP models for lung acute radiation syndrome, improving our manufacturing processes, enhancing our understanding of the mechanism of action of our drug and initiating murine efficacy studies," stated John L. McManus, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the closing of our recent financing, the Company now has adequate funding to operate through the end of 2014, by which time we hope to be generating revenue from procurement of AEOL 10150 as a medical countermeasure."
Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was approximately $1,342,000, which compares to approximately $2,215,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The revenue is from the collaboration with BARDA announced on February 11, 2011, and the variance reflects the timing of work performed under the contract.
Research and development expenses decreased about $901,000 to approximately $1,169,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, from approximately $2,077,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease is primarily attributable to the timing of work related to the BARDA Contract.
General and administrative expenses decreased about $201,000 to approximately $655,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 from approximately $856,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase is primarily attributable to the timing of work related to the BARDA Contract.
Aeolus is filing today with the SEC its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Aeolus urges its investors to read this quarterly filing as well as its Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, also filed with the SEC, for further details concerning the Company. The Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Annual Report on Form 10-K are also available on the Company's website, at http://www.aeoluspharma.com.
About AEOL 10150
AEOL 10150 is a broad-spectrum catalytic antioxidant specifically designed to neutralize reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The neutralization of these species reduces oxidative stress, inflammation, and subsequent tissue damage-signaling cascades resulting from radiation exposure. AEOL 10150 could have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation in the treatment of oncology.
AEOL 10150 has already performed well in preclinical and non-clinical studies, was well-tolerated in two human clinical trials, and has demonstrated statistically significant survival efficacy in an acute radiation-induced lung injury model. The Company believes it could have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation, whether from cancer therapy or a nuclear event.
About Aeolus Pharmaceuticals
Aeolus Pharmaceuticals is developing a platform of a new class of broad-spectrum, catalytic-antioxidant compounds that protect healthy tissue from the damaging effects of radiation. Its first compound, AEOL 10150, is being developed for oncology indications, where it is used in combination with radiation therapy. It is also being developed, with funding by the US Department of Health and Human Services, as a medical countermeasure against chemical and radiological weapons, where its initial target indications are as a protective agent against the effects of acute radiation syndrome and delayed effects of acute radiation exposure. Aeolus' strategy is to leverage the substantial investment in toxicology, manufacturing, and preclinical and clinical studies made by US Government agencies in AEOL 10150, including the contract with BARDA valued, with options, at up to $118.4 million, to efficiently develop the compound for use in oncology.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...
