OncoSec Announces First Quarter Results for Fiscal Year End 2016

Dec 08, 2015, 06:00 ET from OncoSec Medical Incorporated

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- OncoSec Medical Incorporated ("OncoSec") (NASDAQ: ONCS), a company developing DNA-based intratumoral cancer immunotherapies, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year ended July 31, 2016.

FINANCIAL RESULTS For the first quarter of fiscal 2016, OncoSec reported a net loss of $7.0 million, or $0.47 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.1 million, or $0.33 per share, for the same period last year. The net loss includes non-cash items such as stock compensation expense and depreciation. The increase in net loss for the quarter-ended October 31, 2015, resulted primarily from (i) additional outside services costs to support our development of next-generation device prototypes and clinical studies, (ii) additional reagent and lab supply costs to support discovery research, (iii) incremental legal and audit fees and (iv) an increase in non-cash stock-based compensation expense primarily related to our increased headcount. There were no revenues for the quarter-ended October 31, 2015 or October 31, 2014.

Research and development expenses were $3.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to $2.5 million for the same period in fiscal 2015. General and administrative expenses were $3.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to $1.6 million for the same period in fiscal 2015.

At October 31, 2015, OncoSec had $26.9 million in cash and cash equivalents, as compared to $32.0 million of cash and cash equivalents at October 31, 2014. OncoSec expects these funds to be sufficient to allow the Company to continue to operate its business for at least the next 12 months.

(1) Effective May 18, 2015, the Company implemented a reverse stock split pursuant to which each 20 shares of issued and outstanding common stock held by each stockholder were combined into and became one share of common stock, with such resulting shares rounded up to the next whole share. No fractional shares were issued. All options, warrants and other convertible securities outstanding immediately prior to the reverse split were adjusted by dividing the number of shares of common stock into which the options, warrants and other convertible securities are exercisable or convertible by 20 and multiplying the exercise or conversion price by 20, all in accordance with the terms of the agreements governing such options, warrants and other convertible securities. The accompanying financial statement data for the prior period presented has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the effects of the reverse stock split.
