Delcath Reports 2013 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results

- Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:30 p.m. ET - (March 12, 2014)

NEW YORK, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH) today reported financial results and operational developments for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013. Developments for the quarter and recent weeks subsequent to quarter end are as follows:

  • The Company's cash and cash equivalents increased in the fourth quarter 2013 and the first quarter of 2014; cash position as of February 28, 2014 was $32.7 million; fourth quarter 2013 cash utilization was $6.2 million
  • 2014 average quarterly cash utilization expected to be between $5 and $6 million
  • In December 2013 Delcath received comments from FDA on its proposed HCC trial protocol to investigate Melphalan HDS for first-line treatment of patients with unresectable advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or primary liver cancer; a supplemental Investigational New Drug (IND) application incorporating FDA comments was submitted to FDA in February 2014; FDA review of the IND is pending
  • The Company received the approval from shareholders authorizing its Board of Directors, at its discretion, to effect a reverse stock split of the common stock at a specific ratio within a range from 1-for-8 to 1-for-16, inclusive, on or prior to December 31, 2014

"During our fourth quarter we continued to make steady progress on our main priorities of CHEMOSAT clinical adoption inEuropeand our clinical development program for HCC," commented Jennifer K. Simpson, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO. "We are optimistic that clinical adoption is progressing in Germany and the U.K., key target markets that we believe offer the best near-term revenue opportunities. Experience with CHEMOSAT therapy continues to build, with 89 procedures performed on 61 patients since we first introduced CHEMOSAT in Europe. Concurrently, we had dialogue with the FDA on our supplemental IND submission and with the clinical institutions that will be conducting our HCC studies. As a result of our February IND submission, and assuming scientific review and institutional review board approvals, we now anticipate clinical institutions to become activated in the second quarter of 2014."

Financial Results


For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, total revenue was $0.3 million compared with total revenue of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter 2012. Operating expenses decreased by approximately 52% to $5.8 million from $12.0 million for the same period in 2012. 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 $5.5 million, which included non-cash stock-based compensation income of $0.3 million, as compared with an operating loss of $11.8 million, including $0.9 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period.

For the full year ended December 31, 2013, total revenue was approximately $0.8 million of which $0.3 million was related to the recognition of previously deferred revenue. Total operating expenses decreased by approximately 38% to $33.3 million from $54.2 million for the same period in 2012. Operating loss for the year was $33.0 million, which included $0.3 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, as compared with an operating loss of $53.9 million, including $3.8 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, in the year ago period.

In 2013, Delcath raised approximately $43.2 million before related expenses, including approximately $26.7 million through the Company's At-the-Market equity offering program, $9.0 million through its Committed Equity Financing Facility program, and approximately $7.5 million through a registered direct offering.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2013 were $31.2 million, compared with $23.7 million at December 31, 2012. During the year, cash used in operating activities was $34.1 million, a 32% reduction compared to $50.0 million in the comparable period in 2012. The decrease in cash utilization was in part due to a reduction in NDA submission-related costs, and improved organizational and operational efficiencies.

During the first quarter through February 28, 2014, the Company raised approximately $4.5 million before related expenses through our At-the-Market offering program. As of February 28, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents were $32.7 million, including $0.4 million in accounts receivables collection.

"During the second half of 2013, we made significant progress in streamlining our business operations and improving our operational efficiencies, while focusing on our key priorities. As a result, we successfully reduced our operating costs and cash burn to more sustainable levels, and we believe we have sufficient resources to execute our plan into the first half of 2015," said Graham G. Miao, Interim Co-President and Co-CEO.

On February 24, 2014, shareholders approved an amendment to the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors to affect a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock at a specific ratio within a range from 1-for-8 to 1-for-16, inclusive, on or prior to December 31, 2014. If deemed necessary by the Board, a reverse stock split may enable the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ's $1.00 minimum bid price requirement by June 9, 2014, and maintain its listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
