THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.(R) (RPRX) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $29.6 million as of September 30, 2012 as compared to $4.6 million as of December 31, 2011. On February 1, 2012, we completed a registered direct offering to certain institutional investors, including certain existing shareholders, of 2,463,537 shares of our common stock at a price per share of $4.50. Net proceeds to us, after deducting placement agent's fees and offering expenses, were approximately $10.3 million. On September 7, 2012, we completed a private placement of 2,145,636 shares of our common stock at a price per share of $11.00. Net proceeds to us, after deducting offering expenses, were approximately $23 million. Net cash of approximately $8.1 million was used in operating activities during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $7.1 million for the same period in the prior year. The major use of cash during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was to fund the Company's clinical development programs and associated administrative costs. Cash used in investing activities during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $632,000 primarily for capitalized patent and patent application costs for Androxal(R) and Proellex(R).

Financial Results

Net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2012, was ($4.6) million or ($0.30) per share as compared to a net loss of ($4.0) million or ($0.32) per share for the same period in 2011. The net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, was ($10.1) million or ($0.69) per share as compared to a net loss of ($9.8) million or ($0.82) per share for the same period in 2011. The increase in loss for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same periods in 2011 was primarily due to an increase in non-cash stock based compensation, salary expense and increased clinical development expenses related to Proellex(R), partially offset by a decrease in expenses related to the clinical development of Androxal(R).

Research and development ("R&D") expenses decreased 3% or approximately $103,000 to $3.1 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $3.2 million for the same period in the prior year and decreased 3% or approximately $204,000 to $6.8 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $7.0 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in R&D expenses for both the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same periods in the prior year, is primarily due to the decreased clinical development expenses related to Androxal(R) due to the completion of the Phase 2b study in men with secondary hypogonadism, partially offset by an increase in clinical development expenses related to Proellex(R) due to the commencement of the Phase 2 vaginal administration study for uterine fibroids. Payroll and benefits expenses increased for both the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same periods in the prior year due to increased headcount in R&D employees. Operating and occupancy expenses decreased for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in the prior year due to a decrease in costs associated with our patent portfolio. Operating and occupancy expenses decreased for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in the prior year due to a decrease in costs associated with our patent portfolio, partially offset by an increase in consulting and other outside services.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses increased 100% or approximately $727,000 to $1.5 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $726,000 for the same period in the prior year and increased 20% or approximately $568,000 to $3.3 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $2.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in G&A expenses for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to increases in non-cash stock based compensation, professional services, salaries and travel expenses. The increase in G&A expenses for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to increases in salaries, professional services and travel expenses.

Total revenues and other income increased to $1,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to zero for the same period in the prior year. Total revenue and other income was $1,000 for both nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. The increase for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was primarily due to an increase of $1,000 in interest income as a result of the private placement completed on September 7, 2012 for net proceeds of approximately $23 million.

As of September 30, 2012 we had 17,116,357 shares of common stock outstanding.
