BERKELEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/01/12 -- Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: DVAX) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Total cash for the second quarter of 2012 included $69.6 million in net proceeds from the sale of 17,500,000 shares of common stock.

Total revenues were $2.7 million and $5.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $7.3 million and $9.0 million, respectively, reported for the same periods of 2011. Revenues for the second quarter and first half of 2011 included a $6 million milestone earned under the Company's collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline.

Research and development expenses were $11.4 million and $23.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. This compared to $13.3 million and $27.9 million, respectively, reported for the same periods of 2011.
