Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Total revenue recognized in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $329,000 and $1.2 million, respectively, compared to $247,000 and $366,000 for the same periods in 2015. The increase in revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 versus the same period in 2015 was primarily a result of the revenue of NeoForce, a company acquired by Capnia in September of 2015.
Research and development expenses in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $1.1 million and $4.2 million, respectively, compared to $1.2 million and $3.3 million for the same periods in 2015. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 versus the same period in 2015, the increase was primarily due to expenses incurred for the launch of Serenz in the UK and employee-related expenses.
Sales and marketing expenses in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $342,000 and $1.5 million, respectively, compared to $467,000 and $1.2 million for the same periods in 2015. The increase was primarily due to an increase in outside sales and marketing expenses for the commercial efforts related to CoSense, as well as the launch of Serenz in the UK.
General and administrative expenses in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $1.4 million and $4.8 million, respectively, compared to $1.7 million and $4.4 million for the same periods in 2015. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 versus the same period in 2015, the $0.4 million increase was primarily due to higher legal fees and consulting costs, increased headcount, costs associated with the operations of Capnia’s wholly-owned subsidiary, NeoForce, Inc., the Company’s expanded corporate headquarters space in Redwood City and an increase in stock based compensation expense in 2016 versus 2015.
The change in fair value of warrants for the three months ended September 30, 2016 resulted in $200,000 of income, which represents a decrease in the fair value of the Series A and Series C Warrants compared to the value of the warrants at June 30, 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the change in value of warrants resulted in $1.3 million of income, which represents a decrease in the value of the Series A, Series B and Series C Warrants compared to the value of the warrants at December 31, 2015.
Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $6.4 million, or a loss of $0.41 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.33 per share, for the same period in 2015. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2016, was primarily the result of a $3.6 million reduction to the net loss of $2.8, from the extinguishment of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and modification of Series D Warrants. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $13.1 million, or a loss of $0.85 per share, compared to a net loss of $13.1 million, or a loss of $1.60 per share, for the same period in 2015.
