Repros Therapeutics Inc.® Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2015 Financial Results

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.

Financial Results

Net loss for the three month period ended December 31, 2015, was ($6.3) million or ($0.26) per share as compared to a net loss of ($7.4) million or ($0.31) per share for the same period in 2014.  The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2015, was ($29.2) million or ($1.20) per share as compared to a net loss of ($32.5) million or ($1.39) per share for 2014.  The decreases in net loss were primarily due to decreased clinical development expenses related to the Company's enclomiphene product candidate, partially offset by increases in clinical development expenses related to Proellex®, payroll and benefits expenses and legal expenses.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses decreased 11%, or approximately $3.0 million, to $24.1 million for the full year 2015 as compared to $27.1 million for 2014. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of all Phase 3 clinical trials related to our enclomiphene product candidate, partially offset by the payment of $2.3 million to the FDA associated with the submission of our NDA for the product candidate and increased expenses related to the clinical development of Proellex®.  Payroll and benefits expenses increased 20%, or approximately $851,000, to $5.2 million for the full year 2015 as compared to $4.3 million for 2014.  This increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and included a bonus awarded to the R&D personnel in the amount of $338,000. Included in R&D payroll and benefits expense is a charge for non-cash stock based compensation expense of $2.1 million for 2015 as compared to $1.9 million for 2014.  R&D operating and occupancy increased 21%, or approximately $768,000, to $4.5 million for the full year 2015 as compared to $3.7 million for 2014.  This increase was primarily due to increases in legal and travel expenses. 

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses decreased 6%, or approximately $350,000, to $5.1 million for the full year 2015 as compared to $5.4 million for 2014.  Included in payroll and benefits expense is a charge for non-cash stock based compensation expense of $1.6 million for 2015 as compared to $1.9 million for 2014.  Additionally, salaries for both 2015 and 2014 were $1.4 million.  G&A operating and occupancy expense, which includes expenses to operate as a public company, decreased 10%, or approximately $207,000, to $1.8 million for 2015 as compared to $2.0 million for 2014.  The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in professional services costs and travel expenses.     

Total revenues and other income, which consisted solely of interest income, was $11,000 in 2015 as compared to $9,000 for 2014.  The increase was due to higher yields in 2015 as compared to 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $21.4 million as of December 31, 2015 as compared to $46.6 million as of December 31, 2014.  Net cash of approximately $25.3 million was used in operating activities during 2015 as compared to $29.3 million for 2014.  The major use of cash for operating activities during 2015 was to fund our clinical development programs and associated administrative costs.  No cash was used in investing activities during 2015 and 2014.  Cash provided by financing activities during 2015 was $102,000 due to the receipt of $102,000 from a former 10% shareholder to the Company in accordance with Section 16(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Cash provided by financing activities during 2014 was $147,000 due to the exercise of 23,334 stock options for cash.

As of December 31, 2015 we had 24,318,111 shares of common stock outstanding.
