Cytori Provides Business Update and Reports Second Quarter and First Half 2012 Results

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - During the second quarter and first half of 2012, Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CYTX) made key advancements in its cardiac cell therapy pipeline, achieved important commercial and regulatory milestones, carefully managed its financial resources and remained on plan to achieve $9 million in revenue for the year. The Company has achieved or made measurable progress in the following milestones, year-to-date:

Clinical Pipeline

  • Received approval from the FDA to begin the U.S. ATHENA IDE trial for chronic myocardial ischemia in refractory heart failure patients. Patient screening is active and the first patient is expected to be treated shortly;
  • Published positive six month outcomes from the APOLLO heart attack trial in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology;

Commercial Business

  • Expanded Celution® CE Mark certification to include broader wound healing and ischemia related indications-for-use;
  • Received regulatory approval for Celution® in Russia and Croatia and obtained multiple additional Puregraft® approvals worldwide;
  • Applied for formal approval of the Celution® System for breast reconstruction from the Medical Technology Assessment Committee in the U.K;
  • Published positive 12 month outcomes from the RESTORE 2 trial in the European Journal of Surgical Oncology;
  • Advanced negotiations to expand our Celution® CE Mark into cardiovascular and ischemic indications;

Operations & Financial Performance

  • Reduced net cash used in operating activities in the first half of 2012 compared to the first half of 2011, with related reductions in sales, general and administrative expenses;
  • Received a U.S. composition patent for soft tissue defects and a U.S. device patent for accelerating the healing of wounds;
  • Made tangible progress in several of our active partnership opportunities;

"Our cardiovascular disease pipeline progressed in the first half of 2012," said Christopher J. Calhoun, chief executive officer for Cytori Therapeutics. "In the U.S., our refractory heart failure trial (ATHENA) is actively screening patients, our EU acute heart attack trial (ADVANCE) protocol has been revised and is back in front of key regulators, and progress has been made in leveraging our cardiovascular clinical data to expand our European market access. We are also broadening our global footprint of approvals and indications-for-use, which directly expands our access to new markets and presents commercial opportunities which can be addressed with existing resources. Lastly, we continued to improve operations by lowering our quarterly cash utilization rate, while maintaining our investment in clinical development and remaining on plan to achieve 2012 revenue guidance." 

Financial Results

Total revenues were $4.4 million and $5.9 million for the second quarter and first half of 2012, respectively, which includes $2.4 million in development revenue recognized in the second quarter of 2012. This compares to $2.4 million and $5.0 million for the same periods of 2011, respectively, which includes $1.2 million in development revenue recognized in the first quarter of 2011.

Product revenues were $1.9 million and $3.4 million for the second quarter and first half of 2012, compared with $2.4 million and $3.8 million for the same periods in 2011. Gross profit was $0.9 million and $1.5 million for the second quarter and first half of 2012, compared to $1.3 million and $1.8 million for the second quarter and first half of 2011, respectively. As previously reported, product sales will be weighted toward the second half of 2012, due in part to realizing the impact of new country approvals and expanded indications-for-use mentioned above.

Research and development expenses remained relatively stable at $3.2 million and $6.0 million for the second quarter and first half of 2012, compared to the same periods in 2011. In contrast, sales, general and administrative expenses were reduced to $6.4 million and $12.7 million in the second quarter and first half of 2012, a decrease of 19% and 13%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2011. This improvement was achieved in part by targeted reductions in headcount and external consulting costs.

Net loss was $7.9 million, or ($0.13) per share, and $17.2 million, or ($0.30) per share, for the second quarter and first half of 2012, respectively. This compares to $5.1 million, or ($0.10) per share, and $17.2 million, or ($0.33) per share for the second quarter and first half of 2011, respectively. Net loss for the second quarter and first half of 2011 includes non-cash credit of $5.2 million and $2.1 million respectively related to the change in the fair value of warrant and option liabilities compared to non-cash expense of $0.7 million and $0.6 million for the same periods in 2012. At the end of the second quarter of 2012, Cytori had $25.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $2.0 million in accounts receivable, net of reserves.

About Cytori

Cytori Therapeutics is developing cell therapies based on autologous adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) to treat cardiovascular disease and repair soft tissue defects. Our scientific data suggest ADRCs improve blood flow, moderate the immune response and keep tissue at risk of dying alive. As a result, we believe these cells can be applied across multiple "ischemic" conditions. These therapies are made available to the physician and patient at the point-of-care by Cytori's proprietary technologies and products, including the Celution® system product family. www.cytori.com
