Earnings Reviewed

In Q4 FY17, Aviragen's total revenue was $0.1 million compared to $0.6 million in Q4 FY16. The Company's revenues of Q4 FY16 consisted of royalties from Relenza amounting to $0.4 million and $0.2 million in non-cash royalty revenue related to certain royalty rights sold to HealthCare Royalty Partners III, L.P. The Company posted net loss of $5.9 million, or $0.16 loss per basic and diluted share, in Q4 FY17 compared to net loss of $7.1 million, or $0.18 loss per basic and diluted share, in the previous year's same period.

The pharmaceutical Company reported total revenue of $8.9 million in FY17 compared to $9.3 million in FY16. The decline in total revenues during the period is due to fall in royalty revenues from Relenza. Additionally, the Company's net loss widened to $29.4 million, or $0.76 loss per basic and diluted share, during FY17 from $25.4 million, or $0.66 loss per basic and diluted share, in FY16.

Operating Metrics

During the reported quarter, the Company spent $3.7 million on research and development, which came in lower than the $6.0 million incurred in Q4 FY16, primarily due to reduced clinical trial activity as two of the three Phase-2 clinical trials came to a close. Meanwhile, the Company's general and administrative expense increased to $2.0 million during Q4 FY17 from $1.2 million in Q4 FY16, due mostly to higher legal and professional fees. The Company posted loss from operations of $5.6 million in Q4 FY17 compared to loss from operations of $6.7 million in Q4 FY17.
