Went, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "We plan to complete enrollment in our 13-week Phase 3 study of ADS-5102 in LID by year-end and will continue enrolling individuals in the ongoing open-label safety study."

Dr. Went continued, "As we enter the second half of the year, we look forward to further advancing our Phase 3 ADS-5102 program in LID, pursuing ADS-5102 in major symptoms associated with MS, advancing our programs in earlier stages of development and monitoring the continued success of our partnered products Namzaric and Namenda XR."

Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter and Six-month Results

For the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and June 30, 2014, Adamas reported total revenue of $0.4 million and $25.2 million, respectively. Revenues for both periods included development expense-related reimbursements associated with Adamas' collaboration with Forest Laboratories Holdings Limited ("Forest") and government grants and contracts. Revenue from the prior year quarter also included a $25.0 million development milestone received from Forest. Research and development expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $8.7 million, including $0.7 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $5.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, which included $0.7 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in research and development expenses was related to continued investment in the ADS-5102 clinical program. General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $5.8 million, including $1.7 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $3.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, which included $1.1 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in general and administrative expenses was due primarily to higher headcount-related costs related to expansion of our capabilities as a public and pre-commercial company.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the company reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $26.3 million, or $1.47 per share.
