Delcath Reports 2014 Second Quarter Results

- Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:30 p.m. ET -

NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) today reported financial results and operational developments for the fiscal second quarter ended June 30, 2014. Developments for the quarter and recent weeks subsequent to quarter end are as follows:

  • Adoption of CHEMOSAT in Europe continued with 50 treatments performed in the first seven months of 2014, as compared to 22 treatments in the same period of 2013
  • Since initiation of European commercialization, 123 treatments performed on 83 patients as of July 31, 2014
  • Delcath-sponsored Phase 2 study in primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma or HCC) opened for enrollment at first center in Germany; Johan Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt
  • Two investigator-initiated clinical trials initiated; Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, Netherlands enrolls and treats first patient in study of CHEMOSAT to treat liver metastasis in colorectal cancer; Johan Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt trial open for patient enrollment to study use of CHEMOSAT to treat HCC
  • Second quarter 2014 quarterly net cash utilization of $4.0 million; Company lowers average cash utilization guidance for the remainder of 2014 to $4 to $5 million a quarter; Cash as of June 30, 2014 was $27.3 million

"We continue to see steady clinical adoption of CHEMOSAT in Europe," commented Jennifer K. Simpson, Interim Co-President & Co-CEO.  "As of July 31st of this year, a total of 50 treatments, of which 22 were retreatments, were performed at leading European cancer centers.  This compares with 22 treatments and six retreatments during the first seven months of 2013.  We believe the growth in performed treatments reflects expanded European clinical experience with CHEMOSAT.  Our company-sponsored clinical program for HCC is also moving forward as the first site in Germany is now active and identifying appropriate patients for enrollment.  In addition to this first site, Johan Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital in Frankfurt, we expect to add additional German sites, as well as sites in the UK and US during the remainder of 2014.  Our goal is to have interim data from the company sponsored Phase 2 studies in the first half of 2015.  We are pleased that two leading centers in Europe have opened their investigator initiated trials and believe that data from these trials will support our European efforts and contribute to our clinical program." 

Financial Results

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, total product revenue was $251,000. The company did not record revenue in the year-ago second quarter. Operating expenses decreased by approximately 41% to $6.1 million from $10.3 million for the same period in 2013. The decrease is primarily due to a significant reduction in expenses related to the Company's NDA submission to the FDA, as well as the Company's overall cost management efforts. Operating loss was $5.9 million during the second quarter, as compared with an operating loss of $10.6 million in the same period of the prior year.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, total product revenue was $561,000, as compared with $81,000 in the year-ago same period.  Operating expenses decreased by approximately 45% to $11.4 million from $20.8 million for the first half of 2013.  The operating loss for the first six months of 2014 was $11.0 million as compared with $20.8 million for the first half of 2013.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2014 were $27.3 million. During the quarter, net cash used in operating activities was $4.0 million, a 62% reduction compared to $10.5 million in the comparable period in 2013. The decrease in cash utilization was in part due to a reduction in NDA submission-related costs, and improved organizational and operational efficiencies.

"Our cash utilization, which again was lower than our guidance, demonstrates our continuing efforts to reduce our operational costs and focus on key priorities. Recent expense reduction initiatives include a sublease agreement for 50% of our corporate offices for the remaining lease term of approximately seven years.  As a result of this transaction, we expect to achieve total net savings of $2.6 million over the lease term.  In addition, as a result of our successful efforts, we are revising our forecasted average quarterly cash utilization lower to a range of $4 to $5 million for the remaining quarters of 2014, as compared to our previous average quarterly cash utilization guidance of $5 to $6 million," said Graham G. Miao, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO.
