MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - August 14, 2012) - Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: AOLS) (OTCBB: AOLS)

  • $1.4 million in revenue for third quarter 2012; $5.9 million in revenue for first nine months of fiscal year 2012
  • Two options exercised by BARDA during quarter

Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biotechnology company leveraging significant government funding to develop a platform of novel compounds in oncology and biodefense, announced today financial results for the three months and nine month ended June 30, 2012.

The Company reported a net profit of approximately $3,064,000, or $0.05 per share, which includes a non-cash adjustment of approximately $3,666,000 related to decreases in the fair value of warrants that are included as a component of other income (expense) in the statement of operations, for the three months ended June 30, 2012. This compares to a net profit of $6,293,000, or $0.10 per share, which includes a non-cash adjustment of approximately $7,484,000 related to decreases in the fair value of warrants that are included as a component of other income (expense) in the statement of operations, for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $1,448,000, which compares to revenue of $1,912,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The revenue is from the collaboration with BARDA announced on February 11, 2011.

"The Company continues to make significant progress under our $118 million advanced research and development contract with BARDA," stated John L. McManus, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the quarter we began the work on the two recently exercised options, valued at $9.1 million, which include the bulk of the studies needed for our emergency use authorization filing next year."

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $207,000 in cash and cash equivalents and 62,731,963 common shares outstanding. The Company had accounts receivable of $2,365,000 and accounts payable of $3,240,000 on June 30, 2012.

About AEOL 10150

AEOL 10150 is a broad-spectrum catalytic antioxidant specifically designed to neutralize reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The neutralization of these species reduces oxidative stress, inflammation, and subsequent tissue damage-signaling cascades resulting from radiation exposure. AEOL 10150 could have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation in the treatment of oncology.

AEOL 10150 has already performed well in preclinical and non-clinical studies, was well-tolerated in two human clinical trials, and has demonstrated statistically significant survival efficacy in an acute radiation-induced lung injury model. The Company believes it could have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation, whether from cancer therapy or a nuclear event.

About Aeolus Pharmaceuticals

Aeolus Pharmaceuticals is developing a new class of catalytic antioxidant compounds that protects healthy tissue from the damaging effects of radiation. Its first compound, AEOL 10150, is being developed for oncology indications, where it is used in combination with radiation therapy. It is also being developed, with funding by the US Government, as a medical countermeasure against chemical and radiological weapons, where its initial target indications are as a protective agent against the effects of acute radiation syndrome and delayed effects of acute radiation exposure. Aeolus' strategy is to leverage the substantial investment in toxicology, manufacturing, and preclinical and clinical studies made by US Government agencies in AEOL 10150, including the contract with BARDA valued, with options, at up to $118.4 million, to efficiently develop the compound for use in oncology.
