CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/14 -- MYOS Corporation (OTCBB: MYOS)

  • Company Well Positioned to Achieve Significant Near-Term Milestones by Year End
  • Research and Development Programs Exploring Fortetropin™ as Potential Treatment Option in Muscle Health and Sarcopenia Progressing in Multiple Clinical Studies

MYOS Corporation (OTCBB: MYOS), an emerging biotherapeutics and bionutrition company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve human muscle health and performance ("MYOS" or the "Company"), announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 and provided highlights of the Company's recent progress and anticipated near-term research and development milestones for Fortetropin™ (also known as MYO-T12®), the first clinically proven natural myostatin inhibitor.

"Since the commercial launch of our first Fortetropin-powered bionutrition product, MYO-X™, the Company has successfully created a solid growth and revenue engine, with total net revenues since inception approaching $6 million. We see our growing bionutrition revenues as an important means of accelerating investment in research and development. The Company is leveraging the expertise developed in advancing its bionutrition business to build a biotherapeutics portfolio of small molecules and other compounds which can be applied to the increasingly important clinical conditions in muscle health," said Robert J. Hariri, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of MYOS. "During the first quarter we enhanced our commitment to our clinical research by strengthening our management team with a highly experienced Chief Medical Officer. We also initiated two additional clinical studies to further evaluate the effects of Fortetropin on myostatin inhibition in an effort to explore potential opportunities for expansion of our age-management pipeline. We believe that our team's continued dedication to our emerging muscle health therapeutic development program will enable MYOS to provide innovative solutions for multiple potential indications including sarcopenia, cachexia and age-associated muscle loss treatments in age-management."

NEAR-TERM MILESTONES

  • Clinical study data on Fortetropin in muscle and strength building activity in resistance-trained men expected by the end of the second quarter of 2014;
  • Results of Fortetropin study in adult women expected early in the fourth quarter of 2014;
  • Anticipate strategic collaboration for Fortetropin in age management market;

Peter Levy, MYOS' President and Chief Operating Officer added, "For the remainder of 2014 the MYOS team will be laser-focused on advancing our clinical pipeline and expanding Fortetropin in the age-management market and for additional therapeutic opportunities. The Company's patent strategy is sound and we will continue to rigorously pursue additional enhancements to our IP portfolio. By the end of the year we expect to have data from three studies, which we believe will be key to transforming the Company into its next phase of growth as a biotherapeutic leader in age-management and muscle health. We believe MYOS is well-positioned to capitalize on the strategic and commercial prospects for Foretropin and represents an opportunity for a broad group of investors attracted to small-to-mid cap companies interested in maximizing shareholder return."

FIRST QUARTER 2014 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

For the first quarter of 2014, the Company's net revenues were approximately $1,546,000 compared to net revenues of approximately $277,000 for the first quarter of 2013 and approximately $1,408,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013. Net revenues for the trailing twelve months was approximately $4,587,000.

Loss from operations was approximately $423,000 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to approximately $1,092,000 for the first quarter of 2013 and approximately $1,409,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013. Operating losses include the Company's investment in research and development activities in the first quarter of 2014 of approximately $434,000 compared to approximately $178,000 in the first quarter of 2013 and approximately $356,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was approximately $422,000 compared to approximately $1,090,000 for the first quarter of 2013 and approximately $1,408,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $(0.16) for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $(0.47) for the first quarter of 2013 and $(0.64) for the fourth quarter of 2013. Per share results are based on weighted average shares outstanding of 2.703 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to 2.295 million for the first quarter of 2013 and 2.217 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.

On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was approximately $119,000 compared to approximately $736,000 for the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share was $(0.04) for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $(0.32) for the first quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss excludes stock-based compensation of approximately $303,000 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to approximately $354,000 for the first quarter of 2013.

The Company had cash of approximately $3,914,000 and total assets of $8,964,000 as of March 31, 2014 compared to cash of approximately $451,000 and total assets of $3,836,000 as of December 31, 2013.

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share measures, which present results on a basis adjusted for certain items. Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures as key performance measures for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. The Company also believes these non-GAAP measures provide the Company's investors with useful information regarding the Company's historical operating results. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of the Company's financial results in accordance with GAAP. Use of the terms non-GAAP net loss, and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. We define non-GAAP net loss as net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation and certain special charges that are otherwise included in GAAP net loss, including changes in fair value of warrants, amortization of deferred financing costs and impairment charges. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share refers to non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding. All of the non-GAAP measures discussed above are reconciled from their respective GAAP measures in the attached table "Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Net Loss" table set forth below.

A summary of key financial highlights for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 is as follows:

About MYOS Corporation
MYOS is a developmental stage bionutrition and biotherapeutics company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve muscle health and function essential to the management of sarcopenia, cachexia and degenerative muscle diseases. MYOS is the owner of Fortetropin™ (also known as MYO-T12®), the first clinically proven natural myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a natural regulatory protein, which inhibits muscle growth and recovery. Medical literature suggests that lowering myostatin levels has many potential health benefits including increased muscle mass, healthy weight management, improved energy levels, stimulation of muscle healing as well as treating sarcopenia, a condition of age-related loss of muscle mass. For more information on MYO-T12 and to discover why MYOS is known as "The Muscle Company,"™ visit www.myoscorp.com.

The Company's first commercial product MYO-X™, powered by MYO-T12®, is distributed by Maximum Human Performance (MHP) and is currently available on popular retailer websites including www.mhpstrong.com, www.bodybuilding.com, www.amazon.com and in specialty retailers including GNC and Vitamin Shoppe and others. MYOS believes that MYO-X, as well as future products it envisions, will redefine existing standards for muscle health.
