Palatin Technologies, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results; Teleconference and Webcast to be held on February 14, 2013
Date:2/14/2013

CRANBURY, N.J., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Palatin Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: PTN), a biopharmaceutical company developing targeted, receptor-specific peptide therapeutics for the treatment of diseases with significant unmet medical need and commercial potential, today announced results for its second quarter ended December 31, 2012.  Palatin reported a net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to a net loss of $2.6 million, or $(0.08) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2011. 

The decrease in net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to the same period last fiscal year, is primarily attributable to an increase in net proceeds from the sale of New Jersey state net operating loss carryforwards, which resulted in the recognition of $1.8 million and $1.1 million, respectively, in tax benefits for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and secondarily to a decrease in operating expenses for the periods presented.

REVENUE
Revenues, which consisted of contract revenue pursuant to the collaboration agreement with AstraZeneca, were $6,555 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $11,492 for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

COSTS AND EXPENSES
Total operating expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 were $3.4 million compared to $3.7 million for the comparable quarter of 2011.  The decrease in operating expenses for the quarter was primarily due to lower costs related to Palatin's Phase 2B clinical trial with bremelanotide for Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD), which Palatin reported positive top-line results on November 8, 2012.

CASH POSITION
Palatin's cash and cash equivalents were $32.9 million as of December 31, 2012, compared to $3.8 million at June 30, 2012, with current liabilities of $2.0 million as of December 31, 2012 compared to $3.5 million as of June 30, 2012. 

Palatin believes that its existing capital resources will be adequate to fund its currently planned operations, including completing analysis of results of the Company's Phase 2B clinical trial with bremelanotide for FSD, holding an end-of-phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and commencing Phase 3 activities, through at least calendar year 2013.

CONFERENCE CALL / WEBCAST
Palatin will host a conference call and webcast on February 14, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time to discuss the results of operations and an update on corporate developments in greater detail.  Individuals interested in listening to the conference call live can dial 1-888-539-3678 (domestic) or 1-719-325-2329 (international) pass code 4795478.  The webcast and replay can be accessed by logging on to the "Investor/Media Center-Webcasts" section of Palatin's website at http://www.palatin.com.
