2014 Second Quarter Financial Results

SCYNEXIS reported net income of $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. The net income for the second quarter of 2014 was primarily due to a non-cash gain of $7.3 million from a derivative fair value adjustment, largely offset by an operating loss of $3.5 million and a non-cash $1.4 million loss on extinguishment of debt. Net income attributable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.0 million. This compares to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2013.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $38.4 million as of June 30, 2014. There was no outstanding debt as of June 30, 2014.
