View printer-friendly version

NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Delcath Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCTH), a specialty pharmaceutical and medical device company focused on oncology with an emphasis on the treatment of primary and metastatic liver cancers, announces financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Highlights for the second quarter of 2016 and recent weeks include:

  • Issuance of $35 million in senior convertible notes to support Melphalan/HDS Phase 3 Focus Trial enrollment and CHEMOSAT European commercialization through the end of 2017;
  • Presentation of data from a large single hospital experience conducted at Southampton University Hospital in the United Kingdom at the 6th European Post-Chicago Melanoma/Skin Cancer Meeting, which demonstrated overall survival benefit using Delcath's CHEMOSAT to treat metastatic uveal melanoma;
  • Acceptance of abstracts from two studies conducted in Germany using Delcath's CHEMOSAT® to treat patients with liver metastases for presentation as posters at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) Annual Meeting in September 2016;
  • Acceptance of a review of clinical research treatment outcomes using Melphalan Hydrochloride for Injection with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System (Melphalan/HDS) in patients with hepatic metastases for publication in the prestigious journal, Cancer Control;
  • Promotion of John Purpura to Executive Vice President, Global Head of Operations from Executive Vice President-Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance; and
  • Launch of CHEMOSAT at the HM Sanchinarro University Hospital in Madrid.

"Throughout the second quarter we made considerable clinical and commercial progress advancing CHEMOSAT as an innovative new treatment option for primary and metastatic liver cancers," noted Jennifer K. Simpson, Ph.D., MSN, CRNP, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delcath. "Importantly, we secured $35 million in committed financing that provides us with the resources to advance our clinical development plan through to key inflection points while also supporting our commercialization programs in Europe.

"We were particularly pleased to have real-world data from Southampton University Hospital's experience presented at the Melanoma/Skin Cancer meeting as the progression free and overall survival benefits observed in this study are dramatic, especially given the limited treatment options for patients suffering with these life-threatening cancers.  These supportive data provide us with considerable confidence that similar results may be formally validated by our FOCUS Phase 3 Trial in hepatic dominant ocular melanoma that is currently underway in the U.S. and Europe.  We look forward to additional presentations and publication of data in support of CHEMOSAT in the treatment of cancers of the liver during the second of half of the year.

"The addition of CHEMOSAT to centers in Spain and Turkey highlight our continued progress commercializing the system in Europe. We continue with negotiations to determine reimbursement levels for CHEMOSAT under the ZE national system in Germany and expect coverage levels to be defined later this year.  We believe that favorable reimbursement levels will enhance growth in procedure volumes in Germany and provide important validation for reimbursement appeals in other markets in Europe.

"The advances we made during the first half of 2016 have positioned us to achieve important clinical inflection points in our FOCUS trial and our global Phase 2 program in HCC and ICC, as we work to expand global access to our CHEMOSAT for the benefit of patients suffering with primary and metastatic liver cancers," concluded Dr. Simpson. 

Second Quarter Financial Results

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 were $0.5 million. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $2.3 million, compared with $2.5 million for the same period in 2016, primarily attributable to a reduction in depreciation and corporate expenses. Research and development expenses increased to $1.9 million for the 2016 second quarter from $1.5 million for the same period in 2015, primarily due to increased investment in clinical development initiatives, specifically the global Phase 3 FOCUS clinical trial. 

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 increased to $4.2 million from $4.0 million for the same period in 2015. This reflects an increase in clinical development initiatives, partially offset by reductions in depreciation and corporate expenses.

The Company recorded a net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016 of $6.7 million, an increase of $3.0 million from a net loss of $3.7 million for the same period in 2015. This was primarily driven by amortization of debt discounts related to the convertible note issued in June 2016 and a change in the fair value of the warrant liability, a non-cash item.

First Half Financial Results

Total revenues for the first half of 2016 and 2015 were $0.9 million. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first six months of 2016 were $4.7 million, an improvement of $0.8 million or 15% from $5.5 million reported for the same period in 2015, primarily attributable to a reduction in facility expenses related to the lease restructurings. Research and development expenses during the first half of 2016 increased to $3.3 million compared with $2.4 million for the same period in 2015, primarily due to increased investment in clinical development initiatives. 

Total operating expenses for the first half of 2016 were $8.0 million compared with $8.0 million for the same period in 2015.

The Company recorded a net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 of $8.5 million, an increase of $1.3 million from a net loss of $7.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. This was primarily driven by amortization of debt discounts related to the convertible note issued in June 2016 and a change in the fair value of the warrant liability, a non-cash item.

Balance Sheet Highlights

As of June 30, 2016, Delcath had cash and cash equivalents of $7.5 million, compared with $12.6 million as of December 31, 2015.  During the first half of 2016, the Company used $7.0 million in cash to fund its operating activities. In June 2016, Delcath issued $35.0 million of senior convertible notes and related common stock purchase warrants. As a result, Delcath believes it has sufficient capital to fund its operating activities through the end of 2017.

Our proprietary Melphalan Hydrochloride for Injection for use with the Delcath Hepatic Delivery System (Melphalan/HDS) is designed to administer high-dose chemotherapy to the liver while controlling systemic exposure.
