SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) -

Atossa Genetics Inc. (NASDAQ: ATOS) today announced Third Quarter ended September 30, 2016 financial results and provided an update on recent company developments.

Dr. Steve Quay, President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased with our continuing achievements in the Third Quarter 2016, which enabled us to strengthen Atossa's foundation and further our drug development program goals. Our settlement with Besins Healthcare, and our recently completed capital raise provided Atossa with approximately $4 million in additional capital with which to advance our two exciting drug development programs."

Dr. Quay added, "We continue to make progress on both of our drug development programs: Our Phase 2 clinical trial of intraductal fulvestrant is proceeding and I am pleased to report that the study has been accepted for presentation at the CTRC-AARC San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium to be held December 6-10, 2016. We also made strong progress with our proprietary oral endoxifen, which we are developing for breast cancer patients who do not respond to tamoxifen. The initial drug supply for Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies is under development and we'll provide updates as we head towards the clinical studies."

Recent Corporate Developments
Atossa's important recent developments include the following:

  • Atossa's Intraductal Fulvestrant/Microcatheter Study was Accepted for Presentation at the CTRC-AARC San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium Being Held December 6-10, 2016
  • In September 2016, Atossa Regained Compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(A)(2)
  • In August 2016, Atossa Completed an Underwritten Public Offering of Common Stock with Gross Proceeds of $2,875,000
  • In August 2016, Atossa Settled Litigation With Besins Healthcare with Atossa Receiving Cash Payment of $1.76 Million

Q3 2016 Financial Results

Total operating expenses were approximately $1.6 million and $5.4 million for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, consisting of general and administrative (G&A) expenses of approximately $1.5 million and $5.0 million, respectively and R&D expenses of approximately $85,000 and $404,000 respectively. As a result of the sale of NRLBH, operating expenses related to the NRLBH are presented separately as discontinued operations for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Operating expenses from continuing operations for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016 decreased approximately $2.2 million and $4.9 million, or 57.9% and 47.6% respectively, from approximately $3.8 million and $10.3 million for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, which consisted of G&A expenses of approximately $2.4 million and $7.2 million, respectively, R&D expenses of approximately $949,000 and $1.9 million, respectively, and selling expenses of approximately $499,000 and $1.2 million, respectively. The decrease in operating expenses is mainly attributed to the 2015 launch of new devices and services which are not being pursued in 2016 and investing more in new R&D programs in the first quarter of 2015 compared to 2016.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $3.8 million and cash and cash equivalents were approximately $4.4 million.
