VALENCIA, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2006.

For the second quarter of 2006, total operating expenses were $55.8 million, compared with $27.6 million for the second quarter of 2005. Research and development (R&D) expenses increased by $21.7 million to $45.3 million, primarily due to increased costs associated with the Company's expanded clinical trials and related support for its Technosphere® Insulin program. General and administrative (G&A) expenses increased by $6.5 million to $10.5 million primarily due to an increase in stock compensation expense and increased consulting and various other general and administrative expenses, such as legal and accounting fees.

For the first six months of 2006, operating expenses totaled $100.9 million, compared with $50.2 million in the first half of 2005. R&D expenses were $81.3 million, up $39.0 million, again primarily related to the expansion of clinical trials of MannKind's Technosphere® Insulin program. G&A expenses increased by $11.7 million to $19.6 million for the first half of 2006 primarily related to increased stock compensation expense, compensation and other employee related costs and increased legal, accounting and consulting fees.

The net loss applicable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2006 was $54.8 million, or $1.10 per share based on 49.6 million shares outstanding, compared with a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $27.2 million, or $0.83 per share based on 32.8 million shares outstanding, for the second quarter of 2005.

The net loss applicable to common stockholders for the first half of 2006 was $98.3 million, or $1.98 per share based on 49.7 million shares outstanding, compared with a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $49.3 million, or $1.50 per share based on 32.8 million shares outstanding, for the first half of 2005.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $50.9 million at June 30, 2006 and $102.6 million at March 31, 2006.

"During the second quarter of this year, MannKind announced additional data on our lead investigational compound, Technosphere® Insulin, and its novel effect on the treatment of diabetes," stated Alfred Mann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MannKind Corporation. "Importantly, Study 101 demonstrated that patients with Type 1 diabetes who switched from meal time rapid acting insulin analog injections to Technosphere® Insulin achieved comparable levels of control in HbA1c and superior effects on post prandial glucose excursions. We plan to present data from our Phase 3 results from Study 014 at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in September. During the second quarter, we also initiated an additional major Phase 3 trial, Study 103. Overall, we believe this has been another strong period for the continuous advancement of Technosphere® Insulin."

MannKind also announced today that it has entered into a loan agreement with Mr. Mann under which the Company may borrow up to $150 million and has initiated the first borrowing under that agreement in the amount of $50 million.
