PALO ALTO, Calif., March 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IntraBiotics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today reported financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2004.
IntraBiotics reported a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2004, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share. For the year ended December 31, 2004, the Company reported a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $17.0 million, or $2.24 per basic and diluted share.
In June 2004, the Company discontinued its clinical trial of iseganan for the prevention of VAP following a recommendation of the independent data monitoring committee. Subsequently, the Company terminated its iseganan development program, reduced employee headcount by 60% to six employees, and is now evaluating its strategic options, including mergers, acquisitions, in-licensing opportunities, and liquidation of the Company.
On December 31, 2004, the Company had a total of $50.7 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments, and recorded liabilities of $0.7 million. Based on current projections for 2005, the company expects cash outflows of between $2.5 million and $3.5 million on an annualized basis. This estimate does not include any costs that may be associated with completing a merger, acquisition, in-license of a product candidate, liquidation of the Company or the disposition of securities litigation. There can be no assurance that such a range will be achieved, as actual expenditures and interest income may differ significantly from projected levels.
Approximately 10.6 million common equivalent shares were issued and outstanding on December 31, 2004, including 1.7 million shares underlying outstanding convertible preferred stock.
Assuming the net exercise of in-the-money warrants and options at the closing price of the Company's stock as quoted on the Nasdaq National Market as of December 31, 2004, approximately 11.2 million common equivalent shares would be outstanding on December 31, 2004.
The foregoing statements regarding estimated cash outflows for 2005 are forward-looking. Actual results could differ materially, depending on a variety of factors, including the following: actual expenses incurred in terminating the clinical trials; fluctuations in headcount; costs associated with being a public company; costs associated with pursuing various strategic alternatives, and pending litigation. Moreover, the enumeration of potential strategic alternatives in this release does not mean that the Company will be able to achieve any of them successfully.
