Cytori Reports Third Quarter Business Update and Financial Results

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CYTX) today is reporting its third quarter 2011 business update and financial results.

Product revenues for the third quarter of 2011 increased to $2.1 million, compared to $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2010. Gross profit increased to $1.2 million with a gross margin of 56% in the third quarter of 2011, compared to a gross profit of $0.6 million and a gross margin of 39% in the third quarter of 2010.

Net cash used in operating activities improved to $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 from $9.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. Third quarter 2011 operating expenses, excluding related to the change in the fair value of the warrant and option liabilities were $10.0 million, compared with $10.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. At the end of the third quarter, Cytori had $40.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $2.0 million in accounts receivable.

"In the third quarter, we improved our cash position, reduced operating expenses and favorably amended our loan facility led by GE Capital," said Mark E. Saad, chief financial officer. "The equity agreement with Seaside 88 was an important factor in achieving the amended loan terms which significantly extended maturity and deferred principal payments. Expenses improved in Q3 compared to Q2, with reductions sales and marketing costs that reflect more targeted sales efforts."

"This quarter, we made progress building market access for our lead breast reconstruction and cardiovascular therapies," said Christopher J. Calhoun, chief executive officer. "We also continued to generate revenues from a mix of products sold principally into the translational research and cosmetic surgery markets. Operationally, we are focused on ensuring revenue is achieved in a regionally profitable manner and lowering our cash utilization rate. This is reflected in the reduction in net cash used in operating activities during the quarter."

Recent progress to establish European market access for breast reconstruction includes:

  • Final 12-month RESTORE 2 trial results presented in September at the Oncoplastic Reconstructive Breast Society meeting in the UK
  • Final manuscript completed for the RESTORE 2 trial and under peer-review for publication
  • Favorable economic assessment of Celution® from NHS National Innovation Centre (NIC) in the UK
  • Inclusion of breast reconstruction therapy in joint British surgical, reconstructive and aesthetic society guidelines

Progress in our cardiovascular pipeline includes:

  • Completed US chronic myocardial ischemia pre-IDE meeting with FDA
  • US IDE/PMA pilot (Phase I/II) application submission expected Q4 2011
  • EU notified body application for 'no option chronic heart disease' indications-for-use submitted, under evaluation
  • EU pivotal (Phase II/III) prospective acute myocardial infarction trial (ADVANCE) initiated
  • Final manuscript completed for APOLLO trial and under peer-review for publication
