Trimel Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- Trimel Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX: TRL) today provided an overview of its corporate accomplishments and reported financial results for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013.

2013 Corporate Accomplishments

During 2013, numerous accomplishments were achieved in the advancement of Trimel's business. The Company successfully raised gross proceeds of $46 million in connection with its April 2013 offering which also allowed for an expansion of its shareholder base. The Company's first New Drug Application, for the novel male testosterone replacement therapy CompleoTRT™, was filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in April 2013. The independence and expertise of the Board of Directors was strengthened with the addition of Dr. Lorne Tyrrell, Mr. Matthew Pfeffer, and Mr. Ian Ihnatowycz as directors. The Company re-negotiated its agreement with M&P Patent AG which resolved certain matters in dispute, strengthened the relationship, and provided non-exclusive rights in important commercial markets Trimel previously did not have access to. Lastly, Trimel also saw the completion of the enrolment phase for the Phase II clinical trial for Tefina™, a product being developed for the treatment of Female Orgasmic Disorder which is estimated to effect up to one in five women worldwide.

Financial Results for the Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2013

For the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013, Trimel incurred Research and Development ("R&D") expenses of US$8.9 million and US$22.7 million respectively as compared to US$4.1 million and US$17.2 million for the comparable 2012 periods. The increase in R&D expenses for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 periods reflects the favourable settlement of arbitration matters with a technology partner during the fourth quarter or 2013 for $4.25 million.

Trimel incurred General and Administrative expenses of US$2.3 million and US$9.9 million for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013 respectively as compared to US$3.0 million and US$10.1 million for the comparable 2012 periods. The decrease in expense for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the same 2012 period, is primarily attributable to lower share based compensation. The decrease in expense for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the equivalent 2012 period, is primarily attributable to lower share based compensation expense offset partially by higher professional fees associated with arbitration matters that were resolved during 2013.

For the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2013, the Company incurred a net loss of US$0.07 and US$0.25 per share respectively, as compared to US$0.09 and US$0.32 per share for the comparable 2012 periods.

As at December 31, 2013, the Company had total assets of US$28.1 million as compared to US$16.9 million at December 31, 2012 and total liabilities of US$14.5 million at December 31, 2013 as compared to US$12.2 million at December 31, 2012. The Company's average monthly burn rate during the 2013 fourth quarter was approximately $2.0 million.

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Transforming cloud-based data into a reportable format can be a very expensive, time-intensive and complex operation. As a SaaS platform with more than 30 million global users, Cornerstone OnDemand’s challenge was to create a scalable solution that would improve the time it took customers to access their user data. Our Real-Time Data Warehouse (RTDW) process vastly reduced data time-to-availability from 24 hours to just 10 minutes. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Mark Goldin, Chief Technolo...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...
As businesses evolve, they need technology that is simple to help them succeed today and flexible enough to help them build for tomorrow. Chrome is fit for the workplace of the future — providing a secure, consistent user experience across a range of devices that can be used anywhere.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
