Entered Into a $20 Million Debt Facility
CHICAGO, March 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Durata Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:DRTX) today announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012.
"2012 was a great year for Durata. We accomplished many things from a clinical, regulatory and organizational perspective that position us well for a successful 2013 and beyond," said Paul Edick, Chief Executive Officer of Durata Therapeutics, Inc. "Our financial results reflect our increase in spending as we were concluding our studies and preparing for submission to the FDA and potential commercialization of dalbavancin for treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI)."
2012 Highlights and Recent Events
Our significant accomplishments include the following:
- Completed enrollment and closed our two Phase 3 clinical trials of dalbavancin, DISCOVER 1 and DISCOVER 2. Both studies met their primary and secondary endpoints, based on preliminary top-line data.
- Received Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation for dalbavancin from the FDA, which provides Durata priority review by the FDA, eligibility for "fast-track" status, and extension of statutory exclusivity periods for an additional five years upon FDA approval of the product for the treatment of ABSSSI.
- Completed our initial public offering, resulting in approximately $71.3 million of net proceeds.
- Entered into a $20.0 million debt facility on March 5, 2013 with Oxford Finance LLC. Net proceeds are expected to be received by the end of March 2013 and used for working capital purposes.
Financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012
As of December 31, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments of $45.3 million, compared to $11.5 million at December 31, 2011.
Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 (the "2012 Year") was $62.5 million, compared to a net loss of $33.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 (the "2011 Year").
Research and development expense for the 2012 Year was $51.7 million, compared to $30.1 million for the 2011 Year. The $21.6 million increase from the 2011 Year to the 2012 Year principally resulted from an increase of $22.8 million in contract research organization and other clinical trial expenses, including consulting, and an increase of $2.1 million for personnel costs to support our studies, partially offset by a decrease of $3.3 million related to chemistry, manufacturing and control related expenses in the 2012 Year due to the decrease in the acquisition of comparator products for use in our recently completed Phase 3 clinical trials.
General and administrative expense for the 2012 Year was $9.8 million, compared to $4.3 million for the 2011 Year. The $5.5 million increase from the 2011 Year to the 2012 Year principally resulted from an increase of $2.9 million for personnel costs, an increase of $1.6 million in legal and consulting fees and an increase of $1.0 million for insurance and other operating expenses to support our pre-launch activities and increased compliance requirements.

Dalbavancin is an intravenous antibiotic product candidate under investigation for once-weekly dosing, which we believe may facilitate the treatment of patients with ABSSSI in both the in-patient and out-patient settings, potentially reducing the length of a patient's hospital stay or avoiding hospital admission altogether, with an impact on the overall cost of care for these patients.
