p.m. EDT

DANBURY, Conn., Aug. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biodel Inc. (Nasdaq:BIOD)
today reported financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30,
2013.

Portfolio highlights since last fiscal quarter:

  *Completed dosing and all scheduled follow-up visits for patients in the
    Phase 2 clinical trial of BIOD-123, the company's lead candidate for an
    ultra-rapid-acting insulin formulated with recombinant human insulin
    (RHI); top-line data expected in the third calendar quarter of 2013.
  *Acquired worldwide exclusive rights to a proprietary auto-reconstitution
    technology for use with glucagon, enabling the development of a customized
    device for the rescue treatment of severe hypoglycemia; lead candidate
    formulation selected and an NDA submission is anticipated in 2015.
  *Raised $19.3 million in net proceeds from a public offering and related
    underwriters' over-allotment option.
  *Added to the Russell Microcap Index.
  *Presented Phase 1 clinical data for ultra-rapid-acting insulin
    lispro-based formulations and preclinical data for concentrated
    ultra-rapid-acting RHI-based formulations at the American Diabetes
    Association (ADA) 73rd Scientific Sessions.

Dr. Errol De Souza, president and chief executive officer of Biodel, stated:
"In addition to completing the treatment segment of our Phase 2 clinical trial
of BIOD-123, in this past quarter we acquired a proprietary delivery
technology for glucagon and presented promising data at ADA from both our
ultra-rapid-acting insulin analog and concentrated insulin formulation
programs. I am gratified by our progress in building a company with a broad
portfolio of novel therapeutics to treat diabetes, each serving a distinct
unmet need. We are thankful for the endorsement of both new and existing
investors in our recent successful financing and look forward to reporting
top-line data from the BIOD-123 Phase 2 trial this quarter."

Third Quarter Financial Results

Biodel reported a net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013 of $9.6
million, or $0.66 per share of common stock, compared to a net loss of $6.1
million, or $0.52 per share of common stock, for the same period in the prior
year.

Research and development expenses were $3.6 million for the three months ended
June 30, 2013, compared to $3.0 million for the same period in the prior year.
The increase in research and development expenses was primarily attributable
to expenses associated with our ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial of BIOD-123.

General and administrative expenses were $1.7 million for the three months
ended June 30, 2013, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in the prior
year.

Expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 included costs of
$0.3 million each in stock-based compensation expense related to options and
restricted stock units granted to employees and our non-employee directors.

Biodel did not recognize any revenue during the three months ended June 30,
2013 or 2012.

At June 30, 2013, Biodel had cash and cash equivalents of $42.4 million and
18.9 million shares of common stock outstanding.
