Developments for the quarter and recent weeks subsequent to quarter end are as follows: oFinalizing plans to initiate a global Phase 2 efficacy and safety study to investigate its Melphalan Hepatic Delivery System (Melphalan HDS) for first-line treatment of patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) granted the Company orphan drug designation for melphalan in the treatment of patients with HCC oThe Company raised approximately $7.5 million in gross proceeds in an offering of shares of its common stock and warrants to purchase common stock; cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2013 were $27.7 million; combined with October financing activities, pro forma cash and cash equivalents were approximately $35 million oThe Company completed a reorganization of its operations, reducing headcount by a further 33% and lowering its cash utilization by more than 50% compared to the same quarter in the prior year; the Company expects to reduce operating costs in 2014 by approximately $10 million compared to 2013, while focusing resources on its clinical development program oThe Company's Board of Directors appointed Jennifer K. Simpson and Graham G. Miao as Interim Co-Presidents and Co-CEOs following the separation of Eamonn P. Hobbs from the Company; a Transition Committee was formed to assist the Board and senior management in implementing a leadership transition plan and its evaluation of potential strategic alternatives for the Company oDelcath received a complete response letter (CRL) from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the non-approval of the Company's New Drug Application (NDA) for Delcath's Melblez^TMKit (Melblez (melphalan) for Injection for use with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System) for the treatment of patients with unresectable ocular melanoma metastatic to the liver; the Company is evaluating the requirements contained in the letter, and will review potential regulatory paths forward with the FDA for the indication of ocular melanoma liver metastasis "The actions we took this quarter were designed to optimize utilization of available resources on continued CHEMOSAT clinical adoption in Europe and our clinical development program for HCC," commented Jennifer Simpson, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO. "We are currently pursuing a focused market access approach in Europe by seeking interim reimbursement mechanisms for CHEMOSAT procedures in Germany and the United Kingdom, where adoption of CHEMOSAT has been strongest. In addition, we continue to evaluate various interim reimbursement pathways in other target countries in the EU. We believe these mechanisms will help build the foundation for commercialization and help support long-term revenue growth." "In looking at the HCC market, we believe our greatest potential opportunity is in the first line setting," continued Dr. Simpson. "As a result, we have modified our proposed clinical trial accordingly, and will be seeking comments from the FDA. Subject to agreement by the FDA, we now anticipate enrolling our first patient in our HCC Phase 2 trial in the first quarter of 2014." Financial Results For the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, total revenue was $72,000 compared with total revenue of $39,000 in the in third quarter 2012. Operating expenses decreased by approximately 44% to $6.8 million from $12.2 million for the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily due to a significant reduction in expenses related to the Company's NDA submission to the FDA, as well as the Company's overall cost management efforts. Operating loss was $6.7 million, which included non-cash stock-based compensation income of $0.2 million, as compared with an operating loss of $12.2 million, including $1.1 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period. "During the quarter, the proactive decisions we made have enabled our organization to be more efficient and lowered our cash utilization by 53% compared to the prior year period. We expect that these actions will reduce annual operating costs by approximately $10 million while preserving our ability to invest in our clinical strategy," commented Graham Miao, Interim Co-President and Co- CEO. "With our current cash balance, buoyed with the just completed capital raise, we have strengthened our balance sheet, which we believe will allow us to execute our strategy into 2015." For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, total revenue was approximately $452,000, of which $300,000 was related to the recognition of previously deferred revenue. Total operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 decreased by approximately 35% to $27.6 million from $42.2 million for the same period in 2012. Operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $27.5 million, which included $0.6 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, as compared with an operating loss of $42.0 million, including $2.9 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period. Delcath raised approximately $23.2 million before related expenses through the Company's At-the-Market (ATM) equity offering program during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, including approximately $2.3 million in the third quarter. As of October 31, 2013, there was approximately $47 million available under the ATM program. In addition, the Company raised $9.0 million before related expenses through its Committed Equity Financing Facility (CEFF) program during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. At September 30, 2013, there was approximately $24 million available under the CEFF program. Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2013 were $27.7 million, compared with $23.7 million at December 31, 2012. Combined with October financing activities, pro forma cash and cash equivalents were approximately $35 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, cash used in operating activities was $28.9 million, a 29% reduction compared to $40.7 million in the comparable nine month period in 2012. The decrease in cash utilization was in part due to a reduction in NDA submission-related costs, and improved organizational and operational efficiencies. With the recently announced reorganization, management believes the Company is on track to meet previously established guidance of $6-7 million cash burn in the fourth quarter of 2013 and a quarterly average cash burn projection of $5-6 million in 2014. The Company will continue to examine additional cost effectiveness strategies, while focusing resources on clinical adoption and corporate development programs.
