Nabi Biopharmaceuticals Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nabi Biopharmaceuticals (Nasdaq:NABI) today announced its third quarter financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012. The Company reported a net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or zero per share, for the prior year period. Third quarter 2012 revenue was $0.6 million related to amortization of the initial upfront payment received from GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, S.A. (GSK) under the NicVAX® option and license agreement. Revenue in the third quarter of 2011 was $1.1 million reflecting $0.6 million of amortization of the initial upfront payments received from GSK associated with the NicVAX option and license agreement and $0.5 million for services provided to GSK under the PentaStaph and NicVAX agreements. Research and Development (R&D) expenses were $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decrease reflects the substantial reduction in NicVAX related clinical trials and manufacturing activities. General and Administrative (G&A) expenses were $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $1.3 million in the prior year period. The increase reflects costs related to the merger agreement with Biota Holdings Limited (Biota), announced during the second quarter of this year, plus costs recognized for employee severance as we continue to reduce our head count and operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company's net loss was $7.3 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.5 million, or $0.06 per share, for the nine months ended September 24, 2011 in the prior year. Revenue of $1.9 million was recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $14.0 million for the comparable prior period. Research and development expenses were $6.0 million for the current nine-month period compared to $16.2 million for the 2011 period while general and administrative expenses for the current nine-month period were $5.1 million compared to $4.1 million during the same period in 2011. Net cash used in operating activities was $5.6 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to $14.1 million in the first nine months of 2011. The decrease in cash used is primarily due to a reduction in NicVAX-related clinical and manufacturing activities in 2012 as compared to 2011 and a reduction in overall operating costs. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at September 30, 2012 totaled $66.3 million, compared to $96.4 million at the end of 2011. This decrease is primarily due to our net cash used in operations and payment to repurchase our common stock pursuant to our "modified Dutch auction" tender offer we completed in July 2012.
