MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug 03, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- MAP Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAPP) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.
The net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 was $12.5 million, compared to $5.0 million during the same period in 2009. The net loss for the first six months of 2010 was $26.5 million, compared to $14.9 million for the first six months of 2009. As of June 30, 2010, MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash and cash equivalents of $55.3 million.
"We had an active second quarter, meeting with the FDA to gain clarity around our upcoming New Drug Application submission for LEVADEX. In addition, at medical conferences, we presented additional LEVADEX data that continues to make the case for its potential use in a broad spectrum of acute migraine," said Timothy S. Nelson, president and chief executive officer of MAP Pharmaceuticals. "We also are making progress on the remaining trials required to support our NDA, which we plan to submit in the first half of 2011. We recently reported results for our pharmacokinetics trial of LEVADEX, completed patient enrollment in our pharmacodynamics trial and are on track to complete patient treatment in 2010 for our ongoing safety extension of the Phase 3 FREEDOM-301 trial and a QT trial."
2010 Year-to-Date Accomplishments:
Second Quarter and Six Month Financial Results
Revenues for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010 were $0, compared to $8.6 million and $16.1 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2009. The revenues for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009 were due to amortization of an upfront payment and reimbursements for development expenses related to Unit Dose Budesonide (UDB), pursuant to MAP Pharmaceuticals' previous license agreement with AstraZeneca.
Research and development (R&D) expenses for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010 were $8.2 million and $18.0 million, respectively, compared to $9.6 million and $23.7 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2009. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same periods in 2009, the decreases were driven primarily by decreases in clinical and other project expenses to support the LEVADEX Phase 3 clinical program and decreases in clinical and other project expenses to support the UDB Phase 3 clinical program as a result of suspending the development of our UDB product candidate in the third quarter of 2009.
Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010 were $3.9 million and $7.8 million, respectively, compared to $3.4 million and $6.2 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2009. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same periods in 2009, the increases in SG&A expenses were driven primarily by increases in professional services and LEVADEX related marketing activities, and increases in personnel related expenses, including stock-based compensation.
MAP Pharmaceuticals had cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2010 of $55.3 million, compared to $65.8 million as of December 31, 2009.
For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010, non-cash stock-based compensation and depreciation were approximately $1.9 million and $3.7 million, respectively.
