“Our recent progress underscores three important elements of our corporate strategy,” said Gregory T. Went, PhD., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Adamas. “One, we initiated a Phase 3 study evaluating ADS-5102 in individuals with Parkinson’s disease who have levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID). We also initiated a safety study and plan to begin another Phase 3 trial shortly. We are on track to complete enrollment of these studies in 2015. This momentum reflects our commitment to developing our wholly-owned product candidates for the treatment of movement disorders, starting with LID. Two, we announced the issuance of additional U.S. patents covering controlled-release amantadine products. Our growing intellectual property portfolio is a critical asset. Three, we received a $25 million milestone payment from Forest as a result of the continued progress of MDX-8704. Taken together, these achievements reflect the strength of our lead program, our development platform and our business model.”

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, were $5.2 million, including $670,000 in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $1.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, which included $55,000 in stock-based compensation expense. The increase was related primarily to investments in the ADS-5102 clinical program.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, were $3.3 million, including $1.2 million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, which included $79,000 in stock-based compensation expense.
