BEDFORD, Mass., Aug. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulmatrix, Inc. (NASDAQ: PULM), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative inhaled therapies to address serious pulmonary and central nervous system disease using its patented iSPERSE™ technology, today announced second quarter financial results for 2023 and provided a corporate update on its development programs.
Ted Raad, Chief Executive Officer of Pulmatrix commented, "With our first quarter initiation of the PUR1900 Phase 2b study in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, or ABPA, our focus for the second quarter was both to continue our work on the PUR1900 trial as well as to file an Investigational New Drug Application, or IND, for a Phase 2 trial for PUR3100 for the treatment of acute migraine, which we achieved in June 2023. We anticipate starting the PUR3100 trial once appropriate financing or partnerships have been arranged. While we advance all of our programs clinically, we have focused on driving operational efficiencies and have extended our projected cash runway into the first quarter of 2025."
Second Quarter 2023 and Recent Program and Corporate Highlights
Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenues increased $0.5 million to $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023 compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase is related to the Company's revenues recognized in accordance with the Cipla Agreement for PUR1900 during the period.
Research and development expenses decreased approximately $0.2 million to $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023 compared to $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease was primarily due to decreased spend of $0.8 million in costs related to the Company's PUR3100 program and $0.1 million in costs related to the Company's PUR1800 program, partially offset by increases in spending of $0.5 million in costs related to the Company's PUR1900 program and $0.2 million of employment and operating costs.
General and administrative expenses increased $0.1 million to $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was primarily due to increased professional services costs.
Pulmatrix's total cash and cash equivalents balance as of June 30, 2023 was $25.8 million. The Company anticipates that its cash position, based on operational efficiencies and prioritization of spending, is sufficient to fund its operations into the first quarter of 2025.
