Pain Therapeutics Reports 2013 Financial Results and Provides Guidance for 2014

Conference Call Today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:PTIE) today reported financial results for 2013 and provided guidance for 2014. Net profit in 2013 was $31.5 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, compared to a net loss in 2012 of $3.4 million, or $0.08 per share.

"We are excited about what lies ahead for PTIE in 2014," said Remi Barbier, President & CEO. "We'll be watching the progress of REMOXY carefully over the next few quarters, as Pfizer has stated an intent to refile an NDA mid-2015. Any moves towards risk-reduction around this drug candidate may accelerate our corporate strategy to transition from purely an R&D company to a mix of R&D and product revenue. Based on the clinical and commercial profiles of REMOXY, and potential upside of our early-stage assets, I believe 2014 may be a pivotal year for us."

We expect net cash usage for 2014 may be approximately $12 million, reflecting increased investment in early-stage assets. At December 31, 2013, cash and investments were $49.8 million.

Financial Highlights for 2013


Our lead drug candidate, REMOXY®, is an extended-release oral formulation of oxycodone for the management of moderate-to-severe pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time. We designed REMOXY to discourage common methods of tampering and misuse. Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE:PFE) is our exclusive, worldwide commercial partner for REMOXY (oxycodone) Extended-Release Capsules CII, except as to Australia and New Zealand.
