MYOS Corporation Reports 2014 Second Quarter Results

MYOS Management to Host Corporate Overview Conference Call Today at 11:00 AM ET

CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- MYOS Corporation ("MYOS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), an emerging biotherapeutics and bionutrition company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve muscle health and performance, announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. The Company also provided highlights of its recent progress and anticipated near-term research and development milestones for Fortetropin™, the first clinically proven natural myostatin inhibitor.

SECOND QUARTER AND RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Reported positive top-line clinical data demonstrating that Fortetropin significantly increases muscle size and lean body mass in average males with modest resistance training;
  • Received listing approval and began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market;
  • Appointed world-renowned scientific visionary and entrepreneur, J. Craig Venter to the Board of Directors;
  • Announced a small molecule development program with Cloud Pharmaceuticals, Inc. focused on Furin convertase regulation and Janus Kinase 3 inhibition as targets for small molecule candidates and their activity in muscle and inflammation;
  • Appointed seasoned pharmaceutical finance and accounting industry veteran, Joseph C. DosSantos, as Chief Financial Officer;
  • Established a multi-year science research collaboration with the Rutgers University Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration Laboratory and became a corporate sponsor of Rutgers Athletics;
  • Received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the patent covering proprietary methods of manufacturing Fortetropin which will protect the Company's intellectual property portfolio though 2033;
  • Extended the Fortetropin manufacturing and supply agreement with Deutsches Institut fuer Lebensmitteltechnik e.V, the German Institute for Food Technologies, through the end of 2016; and
  • Appointed consumer product industry veteran Douglas Weekes as Chief Commercial Officer to lead the Company's marketing, sales and product development of a portfolio of commercial products derived from Fortetropin.

"The last several months have represented a remarkable and transformational time in the early history of MYOS. After building a strong business foundation, MYOS has delivered on a number of important milestones central to our long term goal of growing into a leader in the field of muscle health. Towards that end, MYOS has built the financial and operating infrastructure required to become a NASDAQ-listed company and we are thrilled to have attracted one of the most important scientific minds of the last century to our board of directors. MYOS has made substantial progress on both the bionutrition and biotherapeutics front witnessed by recent strategic collaborations and the completion of our second clinical study," commented Robert J. Hariri, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of MYOS.

"The positive clinical results from our Tampa study provide confirmatory data that Fortetropin can significantly build and support growth and retention of healthy muscle and improve lean body mass in modestly-trained individuals participating in a recreational resistance exercise program. Armed with this important clinical data, MYOS firmly believes that the use of Fortetropin along with exercise has broad applications in a wide range of indications. Furthermore, the data suggests that Fortetropin may also serve to address the unmet need for a safe and effective treatment for sarcopenia as well as in the management of muscle wasting seen in cachexia or chronic illness. MYOS expects further strategic momentum in the second half of 2014 and throughout 2015 due to several anticipated key milestones including the development and launch of new products to build out the bionutrition business, and additional clinical and preclinical study results," Dr. Hariri concluded.

EXPECTED NEAR-TERM MILESTONES

  • Full clinical data from University of Tampa study on use of Fortetropin in modestly-trained males to be presented at a scientific congress;
  • Results from the Fortetropin study in adult women expected in 2015;
  • Formulation of meal replacement beverage and nutritional protein bars utilizing Fortetropin targeted for end of 2014;
  • Completion of the Rutgers University Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration Laboratory project developing cell-based assays for high throughput screening studies of next generation myostatin inhibitors on target for mid-2015; and
  • Report on the Cloud Pharmaceuticals, Inc. identification of initial small molecule Furin convertase inhibitors in the myostatin regulatory pathway by the end of 2015.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

For the second quarter of 2014, the Company's net sales were approximately $1,679 thousand compared to net sales of approximately $715 thousand for the second quarter of 2013 and approximately $1,546 thousand for the first quarter of 2014. Net sales for the trailing twelve months were approximately $5,551 thousand.

Loss from operations was approximately ($1,001) thousand for the second quarter of 2014 compared to approximately ($985) thousand for the second quarter of 2013 and approximately ($423) thousand for the first quarter of 2014. Loss from operations includes the Company's investment in research and development activities in the second quarter of 2014 of approximately $295 thousand compared to approximately $107 thousand in the second quarter of 2013 and approximately $434 thousand in the first quarter of 2014.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was approximately ($1,000) thousand compared to approximately ($984) thousand for the second quarter of 2013 and approximately ($422) thousand for the first quarter of 2014. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $(0.34) for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $(0.44) for the second quarter of 2013 and $(0.16) for the first quarter of 2014. Per share results are based on weighted average number of shares outstanding of 2.909 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 2.212 million for the second quarter of 2013 and 2.703 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP, net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was approximately ($523) thousand compared to approximately ($608) thousand for the second quarter of 2013 and approximately ($119) for the first quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share was ($0.18) for the second quarter of 2014 compared to ($0.27) for the second quarter of 2013 and ($0.04) for the first quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net loss excludes stock-based compensation of approximately $422 thousand, amortization expense of approximately $50 thousand and impairment charges of approximately $5 thousand for the second quarter of 2014 compared to stock-based compensation of approximately $365 thousand and changes in fair value of warrants of approximately $11 thousand for the second quarter of 2013 and stock-based compensation of approximately $303 thousand for the first quarter of 2014.

The Company had cash of approximately $2,296 thousand and total assets of approximately $8,335 thousand as of June 30, 2014 compared to cash of approximately $451 thousand and total assets of approximately $3,836 thousand 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 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 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 "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Net Loss" table set forth below.

A summary of key financial highlights for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 is as follows:
