WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (ILIU) today issued financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.
Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $487,000, compared to $678,000 for the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to decreased genetic testing revenue recognized from genetic tests processed as a result of sales through the Amway Global sales channel.
Research and development expenses were $160,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $446,000 for the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to lower compensation, consulting and clinical trial costs. In the first quarter of 2013 our Chief Scientific Officer had fully transitioned to his role as Chief Executive Officer and, accordingly, related compensation costs were classified as part of selling, general and administrative expenses in the 2013 period whereas such costs had previously been classified as research and development expenses.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $1.1 million for the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to decreased patent related legal fees and corporate legal and accounting fees as well as lower sales commissions paid to Amway Global as part of our Merchant Channel and Partner Store Agreement partially offset by higher compensation and consulting expenses.
The Company reported a net loss of $1.2 million, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2013, compared to $1.4 million or $(0.04) per basic and diluted common share for the same period in 2012.
As of March 31, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.1 million. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had drawn the full $14.3 million under credit facilities with Pyxis Innovations Inc., an affiliate of Alticor. This facility currently becomes due on March 31, 2014.
The Company expects that its current resources are adequate to maintain current and planned operations only through May 31, 2013. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has included an explanatory paragraph in their opinion in connection with the 2012 audit, relating to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company has retained a financial advisor and is actively seeking additional funding. If the Company cannot obtain additional funding on acceptable terms, it may be required to discontinue operations and seek protection under U.S. bankruptcy laws.
The Company will not host a conference call/webcast today, but may determine to host a call and webcast later this month depending on the outcome of its fundraising efforts.
