VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq:MNKD) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

For the third quarter of 2014, total operating expenses were $38.3 million, compared to $44.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of $6.5 million. Research and development (R&D) expenses decreased $8.1 million from $27.3 million for the third quarter of 2013 to $19.2 million for the same quarter in 2014. This 30% decrease in R&D expense was primarily due to decreased non-cash stock compensation expense of $8.2 million resulting from the settlement value of modified performance awards and an overall decrease in stock-based compensation expense related to performance milestones substantially recorded in 2013 but were achieved and settled in 2014. General and administrative (G&A) expenses increased by $1.6 million to $19.1 million for the third quarter of 2014 compared to $17.5 million in the third quarter of 2013. This 9% increase in G&A expense was primarily due to increased professional fees of $13.6 million associated with the closing of the collaboration and license agreement with Sanofi partially offset by a decrease in non-cash stock compensation expense of $12.5 million resulting from the reduced settlement value of modified performance awards and an overall decrease in stock-based compensation expense related to performance milestones substantially recognized in 2013 but were achieved and settled in 2014.

For the first nine months of 2014, operating expenses totaled $149.5 million, compared to $122.8 million for the first nine months of 2013, an increase of $26.7 million. Total R&D expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 increased by $2.0 million, or 2%, to $82.7 million compared to $80.7 million for the same period in 2013, primarily due to increased non-cash stock compensation expense of $7.3 million and increased spending on commercial readiness of $5.7 million partially offset by decreased clinical expenses of $10.3 million due to the completion of the Affinity studies in 2013. G&A expenses increased by $24.7 million, or 59%, to $66.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $42.1 million in the same period in 2013, primarily due to an $8.2 million increase in non-cash stock compensation expense, increased professional fees of $13.6 million associated with the closing of the collaboration and license agreement with Sanofi, and an increase of $1.5 million in professional fees related to financing transactions and associated filings.

The net loss applicable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2014 was $36.5 million, or $0.09 per share based on 394.2 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a net loss applicable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2013 of $50.8 million, or $0.17 per share based on 296.4 million weighted average shares outstanding. The number of common shares outstanding at September 30, 2014 was 405,469,034.

Cash and cash equivalents were $172.5 million at September 30, 2014, compared to $41.2 million in the second quarter of 2014. In the third quarter of 2014, the Company received:

  • $150.0 million in an upfront payment from Sanofi in connection with the closing of the collaboration and licensing agreement;
  • $40.0 million from the Tranche 4 notes purchased by Deerfield in July 2014; and
  • $17.3 million in proceeds from warrant and stock option exercises.

Currently, up to $70.0 million of additional sales of Tranche B notes may be made to Deerfield and $30.1 million of borrowings remain available under the amended loan arrangement with The Mann Group.
