Repros Therapeutics Inc.® Reports First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Financial Results

Net loss for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 was ($4.8) million, or ($0.20) per share, as compared to a net loss of ($8.5) million, or ($0.35) per share, for the same period in 2015. The decrease in net loss for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015 was primarily due to decreases in clinical development expenses related to the Company’s enclomiphene product candidate, research and development payroll and benefits expenses and legal expenses, partially offset by an increase in clinical development expenses related to Proellex®.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses decreased 49%, or $3.5 million, to $3.8 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2016, as compared to $7.3 million for the same period in the prior year. R&D expenses related to the clinical development of enclomiphene decreased 71%, or approximately $2.9 million, for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the submission of the NDA to the FDA in the first quarter of 2015. R&D expenses related to the clinical development of Proellex® increased 41%, or approximately $336,000, from the 2015 period to the 2016 period, due to increased expenses associated with our ongoing Phase 2B clinical trials for the treatment of uterine fibroids. Payroll and benefits expenses decreased 45%, or approximately $580,000, to $712,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $1.3 million for the same period in the prior year. Included in payroll and benefits expense is a charge for non-cash stock-based compensation of $193,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $574,000 for the same period in the prior year. Additionally, salaries for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 were $422,000 as compared to $579,000 for the same period in the prior year. Operating and occupancy expenses decreased 37%, or approximately $423,000, to $716,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $1.1 million for the same period in the prior year, primarily due to decreased legal expenses.

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses decreased 9%, or approximately $109,000, to $1.1 million for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $1.2 million for the same period in the prior year. Payroll and benefits expense decreased 17%, or approximately $123,000, to $620,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $743,000 for the same period in the prior year. Included in payroll and benefits expense is a charge for non-cash stock based compensation expense of $323,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $448,000 for the same period in the prior year. Additionally, salaries for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 were $257,000 as compared to $255,000 for the same period in the prior year. G&A operating and occupancy expense increased 3%, or approximately $14,000, to $476,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $462,000 for the same period in the prior year primarily due to an increase in legal expenses.

Interest income increased to $17,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $1,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily due to higher yields for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 as compared to the prior year.
