Aeolus Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Results

MISSION VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: AOLS), a biotechnology company developing compounds to protect against radiological and chemical threats with significant funding from the US Government, announced today financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2013.

The Company reported a net loss of approximately $695,000, or $0.01 per share for the three months ended December 31, 2013. This compares to a net profit of $4,028,000, or $0.03 per share, which includes a non-cash adjustment of approximately $4,510,000 related to decreases in the fair value of warrants that are included as a component of other income (expenses) in the statement of operations, for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

"During the quarter, we announced positive data from studies demonstrating that AEOL 10150 significantly improves survival and protects lungs in mice exposed to lethal radiation. This data builds on the growing body of positive data that we hope will form the basis of a pre-Emergency Use Authorization application later this year," stated John L. McManus, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We also filed a new provisional patent application that, if granted, would substantially increase the life of the patent protection surrounding AEOL 10150. Work under the contract is expected to accelerate during the second quarter as we expect to initiate up to 6 murine efficacy studies, continue a large non-human primate efficacy study, finalize process development and validation of our drug substance and prepare our IND filing for lung acute radiation syndrome."

Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately $793,000, which compares to revenue of $1,342,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The revenue is from the contract with BARDA announced on February 11, 2011. Lower revenue in 2013 reflects both the timing of the initiation of program items as well as revenue recognition under accounting rules.

Research and development expenses decreased to approximately $707,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from approximately $1,169,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in 2013 expenses reflects both the timing of the initiation of program items under the BARDA contract as well as expense recognition under accounting rules.

General and administrative expenses were approximately $781,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to approximately $655,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The higher expense was primarily due to stock option expense.

Key accomplishments during the quarter include:

  • Announced data from BARDA-funded studies demonstrating AEOL-10150 increased survival at 180 days from 10% to 40% in mice receiving lethal irradiation
  • Filed a provisional patent application covering novel synthesis routes, crystal forms and pharmaceutical compositions of AEOL 10150 and related porphyrin compounds

As of December 31, 2013, the Company had approximately $534,000 in cash and cash equivalents and 134,550,068 common shares outstanding. The Company had accounts receivable of $1,111,000 and accounts payable of $1,395,000 on December 31, 2013. Aeolus has filed today with the SEC its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Aeolus urges its investors to read this quarterly filing as well as its Annual Report on Form 10-K, also filed with the SEC, for further details concerning the Company. The Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Annual Report on Form 10-K are also available on the Company's website, at

About AEOL 10150
AEOL 10150 is a broad-spectrum catalytic antioxidant specifically designed to neutralize reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The neutralization of these species reduces oxidative stress, inflammation, and subsequent tissue damage-signaling cascades resulting from radiation exposure. AEOL 10150 may have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation in the treatment of oncology.

AEOL 10150 has performed well in preclinical and non-clinical studies, demonstrating statistically significant survival efficacy in an acute radiation-induced lung injury model, and was well-tolerated in two human clinical trials. The Company believes it could have a profound beneficial impact on people who have been exposed, or are about to be exposed, to high-doses of radiation, whether from cancer therapy or a nuclear event.

About Aeolus Pharmaceuticals
Aeolus Pharmaceuticals is developing a platform of a new class of broad-spectrum, catalytic-antioxidant compounds that protect healthy tissue from the damaging effects of radiation. Its first compound, AEOL 10150, is being developed, with funding by the US Department of Health and Human Services, as a medical countermeasure against chemical and radiological weapons, where its initial target indications are as a protective agent against the effects of acute radiation syndrome and delayed effects of acute radiation exposure. Aeolus' strategy is to leverage the substantial investment in toxicology, manufacturing, and preclinical and clinical studies made by US Government agencies in AEOL 10150, including the contract with BARDA valued, with options, at up to $118.4 million, to efficiently develop the compound for use in oncology.
