Date:9/9/2014

CRANBURY, N.J., Sept. 9, 2014 /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 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. 

Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2014 and Recent Highlights

  • In September 2014, we announced the signing of a collaboration and license agreement with Gedeon Richter Plc., a European-based specialty pharmaceutical company with a strong focus in female healthcare, to co-develop and commercialize bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction indications in the European Union, other European countries and additional selected countries.
  • €7.5 million ($9.8 million) in total upfront payments received
  • Milestone payment of €2.5 million ($3.3 million) due upon the initiation of Palatin's phase 3 clinical trial program in the United States
  • Palatin has the potential to receive up to €80 million ($105.6 million) in regulatory and sales related milestones, and low double-digit royalties on net sales in the licensed territory
  • All sales, marketing, and commercial activities and associated costs in the licensed territory will be the sole responsibility of Gedeon Richter
  • Completed discussions and meetings with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on phase 3 protocols for our bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction program in the United States.
  • Received comprehensive guidance from the European Medicines Agency on phase 3 protocols for bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction in Europe.
  • Advanced our lead natriuretic peptide compound, PL-3994, a receptor-A agonist for treatment of cardiovascular and pulmonary indications.
  • Phase 2A multiple dose clinical study in heart failure patients targeted for first half of calendar year 2015 
  • Announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application Serial Number 13/311,824.  The application includes composition of matter claims on a next generation of melanocortin receptor-specific peptides for sexual dysfunction, obesity, metabolic syndrome and other indications.
  • Clinical development candidate selected for our melanocortin receptor program for inflammation and dermatologic indications.
  • First-in-human clinical trial targeted for first half of calendar year 2015
  • Received approximately $1.85 million in net proceeds from the sale of New Jersey state net operating loss carryforwards via the State of New Jersey's Technology Business Tax Certificate Transfer Program.
  • Announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued two new patents to Palatin. Both patents support Palatin's program developing synthetic mimetics of the neuropeptide hormone atrial natriuretic peptide. These mimetics may be useful in treatment of heart failure, hypertension, acute asthma and other indications.
  • Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended 2014 Results
    Palatin reported a net loss of $4.3 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss of $4.7 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2013.The decrease in net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to the net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was the result of a decrease in operating expenses primarily related to our bremelanotide for female sexual dysfunction program.For the year ended June 30, 2014, Palatin reported a net loss of $13.9 million, or $(0.13) per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $20.9 million, or $(0.21) per basic and diluted share for the year ended June 30, 2013.

    The decrease in net loss for the year ended June 30, 2014, compared to the net loss for the year ended June 30, 2013 was mainly attributable to the recognition of a $7.1 million, non-cash charge to expense for the increase in fair value of warrants related to our July 3, 2012 private placement offering.

    Revenue
    There were no revenues recorded in the quarters ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013.  There were no revenues recorded for the year ended June 30, 2014, compared to $10,000 for the year ended June 30, 2013, which consisted entirely of reimbursement of development costs and per-employee compensation earned at the contractual rate pursuant to our agreement with AstraZeneca. 

    Operating Expenses
    Total operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $4.3 million compared to $4.7 million for the comparable quarter of 2013.

    The decrease in operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was primarily the result of lower period costs related to our bremelanotide program for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction.

    Cash Position
    Palatin's cash and cash equivalents were $12.2 million as of June 30, 2014 compared to cash, cash equivalents and short term investments of $24.4 million at June 30, 2013. Current liabilities were $1.8 million net of $1.0 million of deferred income as of June 30, 2014, compared to $2.1 million as of June 30, 2013. 

    Palatin believes that existing capital resources, including amounts received from Gedeon Richter, will be adequate to fund our planned operations, but not initiating patient enrollment for our bremelanotide program for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction without new funds, through the quarter ending September 30, 2015.
