Q3 and Year-to-date 2016 Financial Performance

  • Q3 2016 and year-to-date total revenues were $2.6 million and $8.4 million, compared to $2.5 million and $8.3 million for the same periods in 2015, respectively
  • Cash and debt principal balances at September 30, 2016 were approximately $15 million and $17.7 million, respectively
  • Q3 2016 net loss allocable to common stockholders was $5.4 million or $0.26 per share, compared to a net income of $1.5 million or $0.15 per share (or a net loss of $5.8 million and $0.56 per share when excluding a non-cash credit charge of $7.3 million related to the change in fair value of warrant liabilities) for the same period in 2015

“In Q3, we continued our focus on operational efficiency and maintaining momentum in our clinical development programs, we reduced our quarterly net losses by 7% and our operating cash burn by 25% from Q3’15 to Q3’16, respectively,” said Tiago Girao, VP of Finance and CFO of Cytori Therapeutics. “Our forecasts indicate that cash on hand coupled with efficient management of expenses, projected revenue growth, and modest influx of capital from a combination of business development activities and potential use of our ATM facility, will fund operations through mid 2017 and to important future milestones.”

Anticipated Forthcoming Milestones:

  • IDE approval for thermal burn trial related to our contract with BARDA
  • Report of 48-week US pivotal/phase III trial data for scleroderma hand dysfunction
  • Complete enrollment on Japanese phase III for urinary incontinence
  • Expansion of the Japanese osteoarthritis treatment centers

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements that involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. All statements, other than historical facts are forward looking statements. Such statements, including, without limitation, statements regarding having forecasted cash on hand sufficient to fund operations through 2017 (based upon expected expense containment, revenue growth and modest ATM usage), anticipated FDA approval of Cytori’s IDE submission for a thermal burn trial, anticipated receipt and disclosure of 48-week STAR data, completion of enrollment of the Cytori-supported, investigator-initiated Phase III ADRESU trial (male stress urinary incontinence), expected expansion in the number of clinic in Japan that apply for and receive regulatory approval to use Cytori Cell Therapy for knee osteoarthritis, and reiterated financial guidance (projected operating cash burn and total revenues for FY 2016) are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results and financial position to differ materially. Some of these risks include clinical, pre-clinical and regulatory uncertainties, such as those associated with conduct and completion of the Company-sponsored ACT-OA and STAR trials and proposed BARDA would trial, as well as the Company-supported, investigator-initiated SCLERADEC-II and ADRESU trials. Specifically, the Company faces risks relating to failure to achieve full enrollment of SCLERADEC II and ADRESU trials, risks in the collection and results of ACT-OA, STAR, SCLERADEC II, ADRESU and other clinical data and related final clinical outcomes (including the risk that clinical data from one or more of these clinical trials will fail to demonstrate safety or efficacy of the Cytori Cell Therapy, and risks that insufficiently positive clinical data will adversely affect the regulatory approval pathways and commercial prospects for ECCS-50, CCO-50, DCCT-10 and the Company’s other potential products. Some of these risks also include risks relating to regulatory challenges the Company faces (including the U.S., EU, China, Japan and its other key geographies) due to a number of factors including novelty of the Company’s technology and product offerings, changes in and /or evolution of regulatory approaches to cellular therapeutics like the Company’s in its key geographies, and similar matters. The Company also face risks relating to achievement of the Company’s financial goals (including 2016 operating cash burn and 2016 total revenues), dependence on third party performance and approvals (including performance of investigator-initiated trials, and outcome of FDA review of the Company’s proposed burn wound trial pursuant to its contract with BARDA), performance and acceptance of the Company’s products in clinical studies/trials and in the marketplace (including the Company’s ability to successfully implement and conduct its EU managed access program, commercial acceptance of the Company’s products in Japan and other markets where are products are commercially available, and similar risks), material changes in the marketplace that could adversely impact revenue projections (including changes in market perceptions of the Company’s products, and introduction of competitive products), unexpected costs and expenses that could adversely impact liquidity and shorten the Company’s current liquidity projections (which could in turn require the Company to seek additional debt or equity capital sooner than currently anticipated), the Company’s reliance on key personnel, the Company’s ability to identify and develop new programs or assets to expand the Company’s clinical pipeline, the right of the U.S. government (BARDA) to cut or terminate further support of the thermal burn injury program (including any decision by BARDA not to proceed with a wound trial in 2016, assuming FDA approval of the Company’s IDE submission), the Company’s abilities to capitalize on its internal restructuring and achieve break-even or profitability (or to continue to reduce our operating losses), and other risks and uncertainties described under the "Risk Factors" in Cytori's Securities and Exchange Commission Filings, included in the Company’s annual and quarterly reports.

There may be events in the future that the Company is unable to predict, or over which it has no control, and its business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects may change in the future. The Company assumes no responsibility to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events, trends or circumstances after the date they are made unless the Company has an obligation under U.S. Federal securities laws to do so.
