NABI BIOPM : Nabi Biopharmaceuticals Announces Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

08/03/2011 | 04:40pm US/Eastern

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug 3, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --

Nabi Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq:NABI) today announced its second quarter financial results for the three month period ended June 25, 2011. The Company reported a net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.08 per share, for the period ended June 26, 2010.

Second quarter revenue was $3.7 million reflecting $3.2 million recognized from the initial payments received from GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals (GSK) associated with the PentaStaph(TM) sale and NicVAX(R) option and license agreements and $0.5 million for services provided to GSK under the PentaStaph and NicVAX agreements. Revenue for the second quarter 2010 was $4.8 million and included $3.9 million recognized from the initial PentaStaph and NicVAX payments and $0.9 million for services provided under the PentaStaph and NicVAX agreements.

Research and Development expenses were $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $6.5 million in 2010. Research and development expenses are expected to decline over the remainder of 2011 compared to 2010 levels. General and Administrative expenses were $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 25, 2011 compared to $1.2 million in the prior year period. General and administrative for the balance of 2011 will decrease slightly compared to 2010 levels.

For the six months ended June 25, 2011, the Company's net loss was $2.6 million, or $0.06 cents per share, compared to net income of $2.1 million, or $0.04 cents per share, for the six months ended June 26, 2010. Revenue of $12.9 million was recognized for the six months ended June 25, 2011 compared to $18.6 million for the comparable 2010 period. Research and development expenses were $11.8 million for the current six-month period compared to $12.4 million for the 2010 period while general and administrative expenses for the current six-month period were $2.8 million compared to $3.0 million in 2010.

Net cash used in operating activities was $9.0 million for the first six months of 2011 compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $40.4 million in the first six months of 2010. This change is primarily due to a reduction in the level of payments received from GSK associated with the PentaStaph and NicVAX agreements. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $102.3 million at June 25, 2011 compared to $110.7 million at the end of 2010. The decrease resulted from net cash used in operations.

The company did not repurchase any shares of common stock during the first half of 2011. Since inception of the stock repurchase plan in December 2007, we have repurchased a total of 19.9 million shares for a total of $87.2 million. A balance of $27.8 million remains available in the plan for future share repurchases.

Recent and Upcoming Events

  --  In April 2011, received the $5 million payment for the final PentaStaph
      milestone which was achieved in the first quarter of 2011.
  --  In April 2011, the FDA approved Phoslyra, which is a new liquid
      formulation of PhosLo. Under an agreement with Fresenius USA
      Manufacturing, Inc. who owns the product, Nabi is entitled to a $5
      million milestone payment upon the first commercial sale of this product
      and up to $65 million in royalties from incremental annual sales through
      2016.
  --  In July 2011, reported that the first NicVAX phase III clinical trial
      failed to meet its primary endpoint.
  --  Expect results from the second NicVAX Phase III trial by the end of 2011
      or early 2012


"We were surprised and disappointed with the results of the first Phase III trial of NicVAX. We continue to analyze the data from the trial with an objective to determine the reasons for the unexpected results. This data and the results of the second Phase III trial will help us determine the appropriate actions to take. Meanwhile, we continue our effort to reduce operating costs while the board of directors considers any and all strategic options for the company," said Dr. Raafat Fahim, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nabi Biopharmaceuticals.

You can identify these forward-looking statements because they involve our expectations, intentions, beliefs, plans, projections, anticipations, or other characterizations of future events or circumstances. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of any number of factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, risks relating to our ability to conduct and obtain successful results from our two Phase III clinical trials for NicVAX of which the first of two Phase III clinical trials failed to meet its primary endpoint; GSK's failure to exercise its option for and successfully commercialize NicVAX; GSK's failure to successfully develop and commercialize any future generation candidate nicotine vaccine; our ability to commercialize NicVAX if GSK does not exercise its option for NicVAX; our ability to identify an alternative partner or to raise sufficient new capital resources to fully develop and commercialize NicVAX if GSK does not exercise the NicVAX option; our ability to successfully contract with and obtain manufactured NicVAX product from contract manufacturing organizations; our ability to attract, retain and motivate key employees; our ability to collect any further milestones and royalty payments under the PhosLo agreement; the ability to obtain regulatory approval for NicVAX and any future generation candidate nicotine vaccine in the U.S. or other markets; our ability to comply with reporting and payment obligations under government rebate and pricing programs; and loss of full use of our net operating loss carry forwards. Some of these factors are more fully discussed, as are other factors, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2010 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We do not undertake to update any of these forward-looking statements or to announce the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements except as required by law.
