Aradigm Announces First Quarter 2012 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, 2012.

Total revenue was $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2012, compared with $0.2 million in revenue for the first quarter of 2011. Revenue for both quarters reflects the quarterly royalty payment from Zogenix, Inc. for SUMAVEL* product sales.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were $1.9 million, compared with total operating expenses of $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to lower expenses from the Company's inhaled ciprofloxacin clinical trials. The Company's net loss for the first quarter of 2012 was $2.0 million, or $0.01 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.01 per share, for the same period in 2011.
