Unilife Corporation Announces Financial Results For Fiscal Year 2013 First Quarter
YORK, Pa., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Unilife Corporation (“Unilife” or “Company”) (NASDAQ: UNIS; ASX: UNS) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, (the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2013).
- The continued expansion of the Unilife proprietary portfolio of innovative, differentiated device technologies with the addition of the LISA Reusable Auto-Injector, the Unilife Depot-Ject(TM) platform for implanting a drug depot and the Unilife Ocu-Ject(TM) platform for the injection of microliter sized doses.
- The scheduled expansion of the commercial development team with several additional key hires that strengthen the position of Unilife to serve the unmet and emerging needs of a growing network of new and prospective pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers.
Mr. Alan Shortall, CEO of Unilife, said, “All fundamental areas of the Unilife business remain fully on track. Our commercial pipeline continues to strengthen in both size and scope. Discussions are advancing favorably with a significant number of pharmaceutical customers, many of whom are targeting at least one of our devices for use with several of their injectable therapies. The recent expansion of our commercial development team and strong exhibition at the PDA Universe of Prefilled Syringes Conference in Las Vegas should help to underline the favorable market perception Unilife continues to generate across the pharmaceutical market for injectable drug delivery systems.
“With many negotiations regarding commercial supply contracts and clinical development agreements now at an advanced status, we look forward to generating attractive, incremental and long-term revenue streams. I expect shareholders should have reason to be pleased with our flow of agreements throughout Fiscal Year 2013 and beyond,” Mr. Shortall concluded.
Financial Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2012
Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $0.7 million compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2011. During the three months ended September 30, 2011, the Company recognized revenue of $1.4 million related to the completion of the final milestone under its industrialization program with Sanofi. The Company’s net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $12.5 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.7 million, or $0.16 per share, for the same period in 2011. The increase in the net loss was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenue and an increase in research and development expenses related to the development of the Company’s portfolio of injectable drug delivery systems.
Adjusted net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $9.1 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to $6.5 million, or $0.11 per share, for the same period in 2011. Adjusted net loss excludes non-cash share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization and interest expense. Unilife had $20.9 million of total cash, including restricted cash, as of September 30, 2012.

All statements that address operating performance, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Our management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made. However, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements because such statements speak only as of the date when made. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, events and developments to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
U.S. securities laws require that when we publish any non-GAAP financial measure, we disclose the reason for using the non-GAAP measure and provide reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted net income (loss) represents net income (loss) calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization and interest expense.
Management believes the presentation of adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share provides useful information because these measures enhance its own evaluation, as well as investor’s understanding, of the Company’s core operating and financial results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to adjusted net income (loss) is included in the attached table.
