NovaDel Pharma Inc. (NVDL.PK) reported unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2012.
As previously reported, if the Company cannot secure financing or a strategic partner, the Company may file for bankruptcy. The Company, at the end of March 2012, deregistered its common stock and exited the Securities and Exchange Commission reporting system.
The Company recorded a loss of $24,000 or $(0.00) per share for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to a net loss of $7,597,000 or $(0.07) per share in the six months ended June 30, 2011.
During the six months of 2012, the Company earned royalties from the license of NitroMist and Zolpimist™ in the amount of $293,000. The Company also received $200,000 from the sale of NitroMist rights outside the US, Canada and Mexico. Also included in revenue is the recognition of previously received payments under various license agreements.
Expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2012, were $1,019,000 as compared to $2,417,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011, and include amounts to maintain and expand our intellectual property base as well as an expense accrual under a severance agreement with a former officer of the Company. The Company continues to closely manage its expenses as well as actively negotiate with its creditors to reduce its outstanding debts.
As of June 30, 2012, the Company has approximately $38,000 in cash and cash equivalents.
The current liabilities of the Company, at June 30, 2012, of $3,104,000 include fees due to the FDA approximating $1,500,000. The imposition of these fees is an impediment to our ability to raise capital to continue to develop our product opportunities or find a strategic partner. The Company has filed an appeal with the FDA for relief of the fees currently imposed and future fees relating to our licensed and marketed products. There is no assurance that our request will be granted nor are we certain as to the time frame for a response to our request of the FDA.
The remaining liabilities at June 30, 2012, of $5,253,000 reflect deferred revenue to be recognized over the term of various license agreements.
The Company is effectively insolvent and is actively engaged in seeking capital or a strategic relationship. To date this effort has not been successful.
