Aradigm Announces First Quarter 2011 Financial Results

HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Aradigm Corporation (OTC BB:ARDM.OB) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the first quarter and three months ended March 31, 2011.

Total revenue was $0.2 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared with $4.0 million in revenue for the first quarter of 2010. Revenue for the first quarter of 2010 reflects the receipt of the milestone payment due from Zogenix, Inc. upon the first U.S. sale of SUMAVEL* DosePro* needle-free delivery system for treatment of acute migraine and cluster headaches. Revenue for the first quarter of 2011 reflects the quarterly royalty payment from Zogenix for SUMAVEL product sales.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2011 were $2.6 million, compared with total operating expenses of $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2010. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to expense reduction efforts and lower expenses from the Company's inhaled liposomal ciprofloxacin clinical trials. The Company's net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $2.4 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per share, for the same period in 2010.

As of March 31, 2011, cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $3.1 million.
