Dynavax Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

BERKELEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 -- Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: DVAX) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company had $148.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2012.

Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $2.9 million compared to $1.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, due primarily to higher collaboration and grant revenue recognized as a result of research and development reimbursable under Dynavax's partnerships with AstraZeneca and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $12.9 million compared to $11.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Increased research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were primarily attributed to manufacturing and regulatory activities for HEPLISAV™.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $7.1 million compared to $4.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. General and administrative expenses increased primarily due to growth in the organization and activities to prepare for and support the commercial launch of HEPLISAV in the United States.
