MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Insmed Incorporated (Nasdaq CM: INSM), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of innovative inhaled pharmaceuticals for the treatment of serious lung infections, today reported results for the third quarter and nine-months ended September 30, 2012.

Key Recent Highlights

  • Appointed Will Lewis, Co-Founder and former President and Chief Financial Officer of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEGR), to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer, and Andrew Drechsler, former Chief Financial Officer of VaxInnate Corporation, to the position of Chief Financial Officer
  • Significantly enhanced financial position through $25.7 million registered direct offering of common stock and $20 million loan agreement with Hercules Technology Growth Capital

  • Phase 3 study (CLEAR-108) of ARIKACE in patients with cystic fibrosis who have Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infections continues to enroll and remains on schedule for top-line results in mid-2013

Financial Results

Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

For the third quarter of 2012, Insmed posted a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $9.4 million, or $0.38 per common share – basic and diluted, as compared to a net loss of $34.6 million, or $1.39 per common share – basic and diluted, for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The $25.2 million improvement in net loss was primarily due to a non-cash impairment charge of $26.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 relating to a write-down of in-process research and development and goodwill.  This reduction in expenses in the third quarter of 2012 was offset by a $0.4 million decline in IPLEX® discontinued product revenue, a $0.2 million reduction in investment income and a $0.2 million increase in interest expense.

Insmed did not record any revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $0.4 million in revenues reported for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The $0.4 million decrease was due to the elimination of discontinued product revenue.

Research and development (R&D) expenses decreased to $5.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $6.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The decrease of $1.4 million in 2012 is primarily attributable to a reduction of $2.3 million in development costs associated with initiating two ARIKACE-related clinical trials, as compared to the same period in 2011, when the clinical program was initially being planned.  This reduction was partially offset by an increase of $0.4 million in manufacturing costs associated primarily with initiating a non-clinical study and the build-up of clinical trial drug supply for the ongoing Phase 3 (CLEAR-108) and Phase 2 (TARGET-NTM) clinical studies, a $0.4 million increase in regulatory and quality assurance costs driven by the purchase of comparator drugs used in Insmed's clinical study and a $0.1 million increase in compensation-related expenses, as headcount increased to support the ongoing trials.

General and administrative expenses increased $1.3 million to $3.8 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011 due primarily to employee separation costs recorded in the third quarter of 2012.

Investment income for the third quarter of 2012 of $0.2 million was $0.2 million lower than the corresponding period in 2011 due to the lower cash balance available for investment. Interest expense was $0.2 million higher than the third quarter of 2011 due to payments associated with the recent debt financing.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $25.9 million, or $1.04 per common share – basic and diluted, compared to a net loss of $60.7 million, or $2.66 per common share – basic and diluted, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.  The $34.8 million reduction in the net loss period on period was primarily due to the combination of the previously mentioned $26.0 million non-cash impairment charge incurred in the third quarter of 2011 and the $9.2 million non-cash charge for the beneficial conversion feature of the Series B Conditional Convertible Preferred Stock incurred in the first quarter of 2011, which increased the net loss attributable to holders of our common shares in the 2011 period and, in turn, increased our loss per common share on a basic and diluted basis in the 2011 period by $0.40.  The beneficial conversion charge represents the $1.00 difference between the conversion price of the Series B Conditional Convertible Preferred Stock of $7.10 per share and its carrying value of $6.10 per share.  The carrying value of the Series B Preferred Stock was based on its fair value at issuance, which was estimated using the common stock price reduced for a lack of marketability between the issuance date and the anticipated date of conversion.  Additionally, a reduction in other operating expenses of $3.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was fully offset by a revenue reduction of $3.0 million, a decline in investment income of $0.5 million and an increase in interest expense of $0.2 million.

Insmed did not record any revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  Insmed reported $3.0 million in revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The $3.0 million decrease was due to the inclusion of $2.7 million of product revenue and the receipt of $0.3 million in license fees for our discontinued CISPLATIN lipid complex program in the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to no revenues or license fees from this program in the current year.

R&D expenses decreased to $17.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 from $21.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.  The decrease of $3.8 million is again primarily attributable to a reduction of $4.5 million in development costs and $0.9 million for regulatory and quality assurance costs associated with initiating two ARIKACE related clinical trials, as compared to when the clinical program was initially being planned in the same period in 2011.  These reductions were partially offset by an increase of $1.5 million in manufacturing costs in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 associated with initiating a non-clinical study and building drug supply for the ongoing CLEAR-108 and TARGET-NTM clinical trials.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.6 million to $9.0 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  The increase was due largely to the $1.2 million employee separation costs incurred in the third quarter of 2012, offset in part by the absence of finance, legal and consulting fees which were incurred in the nine months ended September 30, 2011 in relation to post Transave merger matters and the March 2011 reverse stock split transaction.

Investment income decreased to $0.9 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2012, from $1.4 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.  The decrease is a result of the lower overall average cash and short-term investments balance for the current year to date period, as compared to the year to date period ended September 30, 2011.

Liquidity Position

As of September 30, 2012, Insmed had total cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments, and certificate of deposits on hand totalling $91.9 million, consisting of $89.7 million in cash and short-term investments and $2.1 million in a certificate of deposit, as compared to $78.4 million of cash on hand as of December 31, 2011.  The $13.5 million increase in total cash was due primarily to the $35.4 million of net proceeds received in relation to the third quarter financing activities.  These financing activities consisted of $9.7 from debt and $25.7 million from the sale of common stock, which was partially offset by $22.1 million used in operating activities.

About Insmed

Insmed Incorporated is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the lives of patients battling serious orphan lung diseases through the development and commercialization of novel, targeted inhalation therapies in orphan patient populations with critical unmet needs.  Insmed's lead candidate, ARIKACE®, is engineered to deliver a proven and potent anti-infective directly to the site of serious lung infections to improve the efficacy, safety and convenience of treatment for at least two identified patient populations: cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with Pseudomonas lung infections and patients with nontuberculous mycobacteria lung infections (NTM). Following positive phase 2 results in CF patients, Insmed's phase 3 registrational study of ARIKACE (CLEAR-108) in Europe and Canada is well underway, as is the U.S. Phase 2 trial in NTM (TARGET-NTM). The Company expects to report clinical results from both the CF Phase 3 and NTM Phase 2 studies in 2013 and currently is preparing for regulatory filings and for commercialization, if and when regulatory approvals are obtained.  For more information, please visit http://www.insmed.com.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.
