|Item 2.02||Results of Operations and Financial Condition.|
Antares Pharma, Inc. (the Company) is currently in the process of finalizing its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Set forth below are certain preliminary estimates for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, based on information currently available, as of the date of this report.
While complete financial information and operating data are not available, based on information currently available, we estimate total revenue, basic and diluted net loss per common share and cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 to be $8.3 million, $(0.05) and $26.5 million, respectively. The Company did not sell any VIBEX® epinephrine devices to Teva in the quarter ended March 31, 2015, however, shipments commenced in April 2015. The decrease in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments in the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was approximately $5.5 million higher than the decrease in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments in the quarter ended December 31, 2014. This was primarily attributable to less cash received from development partners and customers in the quarter ended March 31, 2015 as compared to the prior quarter and the payment of bonuses to employees and the funding of employer matching contributions for full-year 2014 employee contributions to our 401(k) savings plan in the first quarter of 2015.
These preliminary estimates have been prepared by, and are the responsibility of, our management. Our independent registered public accounting firm, KPMG LLP, has not audited or reviewed, and does not express an opinion with respect to these estimates. Our actual revenue and net loss per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and our actual cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2015 may differ from these estimates due to the completion of our closing procedures with respect to the quarter ended March 31, 2015, final adjustments, our identification of items that would require us to make material adjustments to the preliminary financial information presented above and other developments that may arise between now and the time the financial results for the quarter are finalized. We expect to complete our closing procedures with respect to the quarter ended March 31, 2015, and announce our financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, on May 11, 2015. Accordingly, these estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for full interim financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
The information furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of this Current Report shall not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific references in such filing.
