Adamas Reports First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADMS) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2015.

"In 2015, we have made continued progress throughout our business, including receiving orphan drug designation for our lead product candidate, ADS-5102, for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID), a complication associated with the treatment of Parkinson's disease and further increasing our patent estate," said Gregory T. Went, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "In the coming months, we look forward to expanding our wholly-owned product pipeline with the initiation of a Phase 2 clinical trial of ADS-5102 for a second CNS-related indication, completing enrollment in one of two ongoing Phase 3 trials assessing ADS-5102 for the treatment of LID, and the US launch of Namzaric™ by our collaborator, Actavis."

Fiscal 2015 First Quarter Results

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $12.2 million, or $0.69 per share. In the same period last year, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $6.4 million, or $0.67 per share. Adamas ended the current quarter with $145.0 million in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities compared to $158.7 million at December 31, 2014.

For the quarters ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, Adamas reported total revenues of $226,000 and $176,000, respectively. Revenues recognized in both periods were from development expense reimbursements associated with Adamas' collaboration with Forest Laboratories, Inc. and from government grants and contracts. Research and development expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 were $7.5 million, including $0.7 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $2.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, which included $0.4 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase was related primarily to investments in the ADS-5102 clinical program. General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 were $4.9 million, including $1.4 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $3.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, which included $0.6 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase was due primarily to higher headcount-related costs and related stock-based compensation expense.
