SAN JOSE, Calif., June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BioPharmX Corporation (NYSE American: BPMX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative medical dermatology products, today reports financial results for the quarter ended April 30, 2019.

Recent Highlights

  • Completed the last patient visit in the Phase 2b clinical trial of BPX-041, a novel topical gel formulation of fully solubilized minocycline for the treatment of papulopustular rosacea. The company anticipates announcing topline efficacy and safety data from the study in early July 2019 pending database lock and results validation.
  • Raised net proceeds of $3.6 million from the sale of common stock in a registered direct offering.
  • Regained compliance with NYSE American continued listing standards related to the company's low stock price by effecting a 1-for-25 reverse stock split.
  • Entered into a Capital on Demand Sales Agreement with JonesTrading Institutional Services LLC whereby the company may issue common stock for proceeds up to $8.5 million from time to time through "at the market offerings."
  • Further reduced operating costs by reducing its workforce by approximately 20%.

"The company continues to take steps on behalf of its shareholders to advance and to drive value in its topical minocycline programs." said Dr. Tierney, BioPharmX CEO. "As such, we are looking forward to communicating the topline results from our Phase 2b rosacea study."

Net loss for the quarter ended April 30, 2019 was $3.6 million, or $0.38 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.61 per share, during the prior fiscal year's first quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
BioPharmX Corporation has supplemented its financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") with non-GAAP measures, including non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which do not include stock-based compensation expense and the impact of changes in fair value of warrant liability. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses the non-GAAP information internally to evaluate its ongoing business, operational performance and cash requirements and believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors as they provide the same basis for evaluating BioPharmX Corporation's performance as applied by management.

BioPharmX Corporation has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore, comparability may be limited. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. BioPharmX Corporation believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with its results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. BioPharmX Corporation encourages investors and others to review the company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Stock-based compensation expense represents non-cash charges related to equity awards granted by BioPharmX Corporation. The change in fair value of warrant liability results from the periodic revaluing of the warrant liability. These amounts are excluded from the company's non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share because they are not reflective of ongoing operating results in the period incurred. Although these may be recurring charges to BioPharmX Corporation's operations, management believes the measurement of these amounts can vary considerably from period to period and depend substantially on factors that are not a direct consequence of operating performance that is within management's control. Thus, management believes that excluding these charges from non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share facilitates comparisons of BioPharmX Corporation's operational performance in different periods, as well as with similarly determined non-GAAP financial measures of comparable companies.
