Affymax Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2012 Financial Results Business Wire PALO ALTO, Calif. -- April 2, 2013 Affymax, Inc. (Nasdaq: AFFY) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $68.3 million (or ($1.85) per share) compared to a net loss of $29.4 million (or ($0.82) per share) for the fourth quarter of 2011. On February 23, 2013, Affymax and its partner, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (Takeda) announced a nationwide voluntary recall of OMONTYS as a result of postmarketing reports regarding safety concerns, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening or fatal. We and Takeda are actively investigating the cause of these reactions but there can be no assurance that a solution will be found. As of the result of the recall, we re-evaluated a number of estimates made as of period-end and recorded financial statement adjustments to reflect changes in those estimates as to the recoverability of inventory and deposits made to our contract manufacturing organizations, or CMOs, potential losses on firm purchase commitments and changes in the short-term and long-term classification of certain liabilities. In the aggregate, we recorded $45.0 million in impairment due to inventory and firm purchase commitments in the quarter ended December 31, 2012, with no comparable charge in the prior year. Earlier this month, the Company began reorganizing its operations in order to significantly reduce operating costs and negotiating with Takeda to collaboratively focus on the OMONTYS safety and other related FDA issues associated with the recall of the product. In addition to the significant reduction in force of approximately 230 employees (75% of the Company’s workforce), including the commercial and medical affairs field forces as well as other officers and employees throughout the organization, the Company is continuing to transition many of the ongoing activities to Takeda and negotiating with Takeda on costs allocated between the parties under the collaboration arrangement. In connection with this restructuring, the Board and management continue to review the Company’s current financial position, including but not limited to: (i) the Company’s existing cash balance, which as of February 28, 2013 was approximately $67 million, (ii) all currently outstanding liabilities as well as commitments to third parties, which include potential contract manufacturing organization (CMO) commitments of up to an estimated approximately $33 million, (iii) outstanding debt obligations of up to approximately $11 million under its existing credit facility, (iv) estimated costs and expenses of the reduction in force of $8 to $10 million, and (v) estimates of expenses pursuant to and in continuation of its arrangement with Takeda under the collaboration agreement and conduct the ongoing investigation and support the recall of OMONTYS and (vi) projected costs for maintaining ongoing operations as a significantly smaller public company. As a result, the Company is continuing the restructuring efforts which is expected to include further efforts to transition responsibilities for the investigation and recall of OMONTYS to Takeda, discussions with the FDA including a potential withdrawal of the OMONTYS New Drug Application (NDA), additional reductions in force and renegotiation of some or all of its existing agreements with third parties, including Takeda, in order to support a significantly smaller organization. If the Company is unable to rapidly and successfully progress these efforts, its ability to continue operations will be significantly in doubt and the Company may have to cease operations. In addition to the evaluation of strategic alternatives for the organization, including the sale of the company or its assets, or a corporate merger, the company is considering all possible alternatives, including further restructuring activities, wind-down of operations or even bankruptcy proceedings.
