Financial Results for Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

Research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $2.7 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 5.2%, compared to $2.9 million for the comparable period in 2015. The small decrease resulted primarily from lower spending on BL-7010 in the 2016 period, partially offset by increased spending related to clinical trial preparations for BL-8040. Research and development expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $5.3 million, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 13.5%, compared to $6.1 million for the comparable period in 2015. The decrease resulted primarily from lower expenditures for BL-7010 during the 2016 period, as well as the conclusion of one of the clinical trials for BL-8040 in 2015.

Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $0.3 million, similar to the comparable period in 2015. Sales and marketing expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $0.5 million, similar to the comparable period in 2015.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2016 were $0.9 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 12.5%, compared to $1.0 million for the comparable period in 2015. The small decrease resulted primarily from a decrease in salary-related payments and depreciation. General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2016 were $1.8 million, similar to the comparable period in 2015.

The Company’s operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016 amounted to $3.8 million, compared with an operating loss of $4.2 million for the corresponding 2015 period. The Company’s operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 amounted to $7.6 million, compared with an operating loss of $8.5 million for the corresponding 2015 period.

Non-operating income (expenses) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 primarily relate to fair-value adjustments of warrant liabilities on the Company’s balance sheet. These fair-value adjustments, which were not material in the 2016 periods, are highly influenced by the Company’s share price at each period end (revaluation date).

Financial income (expenses), net for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 primarily relate to investment income earned on bank deposits, as well as banking fees. The decrease from 2015 to 2016 reflects a lower cash balance and a continued reduction in global investment yields.

The Company’s net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016 amounted to $3.7 million, compared with a net loss of $4.8 million for the corresponding 2015 period. The Company’s net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 amounted to $7.2 million, compared with a net loss of $9.1 million for the corresponding 2015 period.

The Company held $41.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term bank deposits as of June 30, 2016.
