Repros Therapeutics Inc.® Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Financial Results

Net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2016, was ($4.2) million or ($0.17) per share as compared to a net loss of ($6.6) million or ($0.27) per share for the same period in 2015. The net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016, was ($13.3) million or ($0.55) per share as compared to a net loss of ($22.9) million or ($0.94) per share for the same period in 2015. The decreased loss for both the three and nine month periods was primarily due to decreased clinical development expenses related to the Company’s enclomiphene and Proellex product candidates, as well as decreased payroll and benefits expenses and legal expenses.

For the three month period ended September 30, 2016, research and development (“R&D”) expenses decreased 42%, or $2.3 million, to $3.2 million, as compared to $5.5 million for the same period in the prior year. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2016, R&D expenses decreased 47%, or approximately $9.1 million, to $10.2 million, as compared to $19.3 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in both the three and nine month periods was primarily due to the submission of the NDA to the FDA for our enclomiphene product candidate in 2015, as well as decreased R&D payroll and benefits expenses, legal expenses and expenses related to the clinical development of Proellex.

General and administrative expenses decreased 9%, or approximately $103,000, to $997,000, for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $1.1 million for the same period in the prior year and decreased 14%, or approximately $503,000, to $3.1 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016, as compared to $3.6 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in both the three and nine month periods was primarily due to decreased non-cash stock based compensation.

Total revenues and other income increased to $10,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $1,000 for the same period in the prior year. Total revenue and other income increased to $41,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 as compared to $3,000 for the same period in the prior year. All revenue in both periods was from interest income, and the increase was primarily due to higher yields for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the prior year.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $10.5 million as of September 30, 2016 as compared to $21.4 million as of December 31, 2015. Net cash of approximately $12.5 million and $20.5 million was used in operating activities during the nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The major use of cash for operating activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 was to fund our clinical development programs and associated administrative costs. No cash was used in investing activities during the nine month period ended September 30, 2016. Cash provided by financing activities for the nine month period ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $1.6 million due to the 807,340 ATM Shares sold at a weighted average share price of $2.15, net of related expenses.

As of September 30, 2016 we had 25,126,784 shares of common stock outstanding.
