SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BioPharmX Corporation (NYSE American: BPMX), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative medical dermatology products, today reports financial results for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2019.

Corporate Update

In the third quarter, we retained Locust Walk Partners, LLC, a global life science transaction firm focused on biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies, to provide transaction advisory services. Strategic transactions that have been or are being considered include a license or sale of our late-stage topical minocycline product candidates, a sale of the company or a strategic business combination. In order to preserve cash, the company has taken additional steps to reduce operating costs.

"The process with Locust Walk is ongoing," said Dr. Tierney, BioPharmX CEO. "We are optimistic that we will be able to announce a strategic transaction before the end of our fiscal year."

Third Quarter Financial Results

For the third fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2019, total operating expenses were $2.1 million, compared with total operating expenses of $4.4 million in the prior fiscal year's third quarter.

Net loss for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2019 was $2.1 million, or $0.14 per share, compared with a net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.57 per share, during the prior fiscal year's third quarter.

Excluding stock-based compensation expense, non-GAAP net loss for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2019 was $1.9 million, or $0.13 per share. During the third quarter of the prior fiscal year, the comparable non-GAAP net loss was $3.7 million, or $0.49 per share.

Cash and cash equivalents were $1.4 million as of October 31, 2019.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

BioPharmX Corporation has supplemented its financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") with non-GAAP measures, including non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which do not include stock-based compensation expense and the impact of changes in fair value of warrant liability. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses the non-GAAP information internally to evaluate its ongoing business, operational performance and cash requirements and believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors as they provide the same basis for evaluating BioPharmX Corporation's performance as applied by management.

BioPharmX Corporation has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore, comparability may be limited. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. BioPharmX Corporation believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with its results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. BioPharmX Corporation encourages investors and others to review the company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Stock-based compensation expense represents non-cash charges related to equity awards granted by BioPharmX Corporation. The change in fair value of warrant liability results from the periodic revaluing of the warrant liability. These amounts are excluded from the company's non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share because they are not reflective of ongoing operating results in the period incurred. Although these may be recurring charges to BioPharmX Corporation's operations, management believes the measurement of these amounts can vary considerably from period to period and depend substantially on factors that are not a direct consequence of operating performance that is within management's control. Thus, management believes that excluding these charges from non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share facilitates comparisons of BioPharmX Corporation's operational performance in different periods, as well as with similarly determined non-GAAP financial measures of comparable companies.
