Trimel Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 5, 2014) - Trimel Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX:TRL) today provided an overview of its corporate accomplishments and reported financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013.

2013 Corporate Accomplishments

During 2013, numerous accomplishments were achieved in the advancement of Trimel's business. The Company successfully raised gross proceeds of $46 million in connection with its April 2013 offering which also allowed for an expansion of its shareholder base. The Company's first New Drug Application, for the novel male testosterone replacement therapy CompleoTRT™, was filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2013. The independence and expertise of the Board of Directors was strengthened with the addition of Dr. Lorne Tyrrell, Mr. Matthew Pfeffer, and Mr. Ian Ihnatowycz as directors. The Company re-negotiated its agreement with M&P Patent AG which resolved certain matters in dispute, strengthened the relationship, and provided non-exclusive rights in important commercial markets Trimel previously did not have access to. Lastly, Trimel also saw the completion of the enrolment phase for the Phase II clinical trial for Tefina™, a product being developed for the treatment of Female Orgasmic Disorder which is estimated to effect up to one in five women worldwide.

Financial Results for the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2013

For the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013, Trimel incurred Research and Development ("R&D") expenses of US$8.9 million and US$22.7 million respectively as compared to US$4.1 million and US$17.2 million for the comparable 2012 periods. The increase in R&D expenses for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 periods reflects the favourable settlement of arbitration matters with a technology partner during the fourth quarter or 2013 for $4.25 million.

Trimel incurred General and Administrative expenses of US$2.3 million and US$9.9 million for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013 respectively as compared to US$3.0 million and US$10.1 million for the comparable 2012 periods. The decrease in expense for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the same 2012 period, is primarily attributable to lower share based compensation. The decrease in expense for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the equivalent 2012 period, is primarily attributable to lower share based compensation expense offset partially by higher professional fees associated with arbitration matters that were resolved during 2013.

For the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013, the Company incurred a net loss of US$0.07 and US$0.25 per share respectively, as compared to US$0.09 and US$0.32 per share for the comparable 2012 periods.

As at December 31, 2013, the Company had total assets of US$28.1 million as compared to US$16.9 million at December 31, 2012 and total liabilities of US$14.5 million at December 31, 2013 as compared to US$12.2 million at December 31, 2012. The Company's average monthly burn rate during the 2013 fourth quarter was approximately $2.0 million.
