Dynavax Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

BERKELEY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/05/15 -- Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: DVAX) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

The Company had $220.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of September 30, 2015, compared to $93.4 million at June 30, 2015. The balance at September 30, 2015 includes approximately $164 million of net proceeds from sales of common stock in the third quarter and reflects payment of all principal and accrued interest, prepayment charges and other fees totaling approximately $11 million under a loan agreement.

Operating expenses of $29.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 increased by $4.8 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2015 primarily due to production, clinical trial and commercial preparation costs.

We recently initiated a clinical trial to evaluate the combination of our cancer immunotherapeutic product candidate SD-101 and Merck's KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in patients with metastatic melanoma. All study visits for HBV-23, the Phase 3 clinical study of HEPLISAV-B™, were completed in October 2015. Top line results of this study are expected to be released in early 2016.

The net loss allocable to common stockholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $30.1 million, or $0.82 per basic and diluted share. The net loss allocable to common stockholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $23.6 million, or $0.80 per basic and diluted share.
