(GNTA.ob) - Genta Inc. Announces Financial Results

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Genta Incorporated (NASDAQ: GNTA - News) today announced financial results and progress for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2008. The Company noted significant recent milestones, including:

* AGENDA: Phase 3 biomarker-directed trial nears completion in melanoma
* Tesetaxel, a leading Phase 2 oral taxane, prepares for pivotal trial in gastric cancer
* Genasense® intermittent schedule enters trial in melanoma
* Decision on FDA appeal for Genasense NDA in CLL expected this quarter
* New oral product for bone loss, G4544, completes initial Phase 1 trial

“Genta has three exceptional, high-value, late-stage products in our portfolio,” noted Dr. Raymond P. Warrell, Jr., Genta’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We expect the Phase 3 AGENDA trial of Genasense® in patients with advanced melanoma to complete accrual later this quarter. Positive results from AGENDA should support global regulatory applications. We have aggressively pursued the clinical development of tesetaxel, a drug that we believe can be the first oral taxane approved in oncology. Tesetaxel offers a unique and exceptionally attractive market opportunity to reduce side effects for patients and potentially expand the diseases that may respond to this class of compounds. Lastly, we continue to pursue development of G4544, which also offers a potential early-to-market opportunity via a streamlined 505(b)(2) regulatory strategy. Each drug in our portfolio offers significant partnering opportunities that can accelerate their development.”

Highlights and updates of the Genta programs appear below.


Phase 3/Melanoma: Genta will shortly conclude patient accrual into its second Phase 3, randomized, controlled trial of Genasense® in patients with advanced melanoma, known as AGENDA. The study is designed to confirm certain safety and efficacy results from our prior randomized trial of Genasense® combined with dacarbazine (DTIC) in patients who have not previously received chemotherapy. AGENDA employs a biomarker to define those patients who derived maximum clinical benefit during the preceding study. These patients are characterized by low-normal levels of LDH (lactate dehydrogenase), a tumor-derived enzyme that is readily detected in blood. Analysis of those efficacy outcomes in the prior study, which were observed in 274 patients, showed the following results:






Overall response 20.8% 7.2% 0.002
Durable response 10.7% 2.4% 0.007
Progression-free survival, median 3.6 mos. 1.6 mos. 0.58 < 0.0001
Overall survival, median 12.3 mos. 9.9 mos. 0.64 0.0009

A scientific article that describes efficacy and safety results from this study can be accessed at: AGENDA has co-primary endpoints of progression-free survival and overall survival. Genta currently expects the final analysis of progression-free survival, and the first interim assessment of overall survival, to be available in the Fall of 2009.

Phase 3/Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)/NDA Status: Genta has appealed a prior “non-approvable” decision on the Genasense® New Drug Application (NDA) for patients with relapsed/refractory CLL. The appeal is now pending a decision by FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). The pivotal randomized trial achieved its primary endpoint, which was to significantly increase the proportion of patients who achieved complete remission by adding Genasense® to standard chemotherapy compared with patients treated with chemotherapy alone. With 5-years of follow up, all patients who achieved a major response (either complete or partial remission) on the Genasense® treatment arm achieved superior survival compared with responders treated with chemotherapy alone. A decision from CDER is expected in the current quarter.


Tesetaxel is a novel, orally absorbed, semi-synthetic taxane that is in the same class of drugs as paclitaxel and docetaxel. However, both prototype agents suffer from serious safety issues, particularly hypersensitivity reactions related to intravenous infusions that are occasionally fatal and that require careful premedication and observation. Other prominent side-effects of this drug class include myelosuppression (low blood counts) and peripheral neuropathy (disabling nerve damage).

With administration as an oral capsule, tesetaxel was developed to maintain the high antitumor activity of the taxane drug class while eliminating infusion reactions, reducing neuropathy, and increasing patient convenience. The oral route also enables development of novel schedules that may expand dosing options when tesetaxel is used alone or in combination with other anticancer drugs. Preclinically, tesetaxel has demonstrated substantially higher activity against cell lines that were resistant to paclitaxel and docetaxel, since acquired resistance is not mediated by the multidrug-resistant p-glycoprotein.

Tesetaxel has demonstrated anticancer activity in several completed Phase 2 clinical trials, including patients with advanced gastric cancer and advanced breast cancer. The drug has not been associated with severe infusion reactions that are linked with other taxanes. Moreover, unlike other oral taxanes, nerve damage has not been a prominent side effect of tesetaxel. Thus, the drug offers substantial opportunities to improve patient convenience, safety, and anticancer activity.

More than 250 patients worldwide have been treated with oral tesetaxel in Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials. Genta is currently running a U.S. clinical trial to examine the pharmacokinetics of tesetaxel over a critical dosing range for pivotal regulatory trials. Data from this trial should be available at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology held in Orland, FL May 29-June 2, 2009.

Tesetaxel received designation as an Orphan Drug by FDA for treatment of patients with advanced gastric cancer and advanced melanoma. Genta has submitted a proposal for a randomized controlled trial of tesetaxel to FDA for Special Protocol Assessment to support an efficacy claim for patients with advanced gastric cancer who have progressed on first-line therapy.


G4544 contains the active ingredient in Ganite®, a highly effective intravenous drug that is approved in the U.S. and marketed for treatment of patients with cancer-related hypercalcemia that is resistant to hydration. Low doses of the active ingredient have shown clinical activity in a range of skeletal diseases, such as bone metastasis, Paget’s disease and osteoporosis. Genta has completed an initial Phase 1 study of G4544, a proprietary small molecule formulation of this active ingredient.

The Company has sought and received FDA guidance on the initial development of G4544. Genta believes that a 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway may shorten development time and enable regulatory approval by establishing bioequivalence to Ganite®. The 505(b)(2) approach enables potential approval in the currently approved indication for Ganite (cancer-related hypercalcemia) in parallel with development in other indications.


In June 2008, the Company entered into a convertible note transaction (described below). That transaction required that the Company seek stockholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock. While such approval was obtained in October 2008, for the period from June 9, 2008 through October 6, 2008, the Company was required to mark-to-market the liabilities for the conversion feature of its notes and a warrant issued as part of the transaction. These liabilities changed with the price of Genta’s common stock, and these fluctuations resulted in net income for the fourth quarter of 2008.

The Company reported net income of $29.6 million, or $0.26 per basic share, and $0.02 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2008, compared with a net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.06) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2007. The calculation of diluted earnings per share includes the assumption that all outstanding instruments potentially convertible into shares of common stock are converted, including the impact of converting $15.5 million of convertible notes into 1.55 billion shares of common stock and the warrant into 40 million shares of common stock. For the year ended December 31, 2008, the Company reported a net loss of $505.8 million, or $(9.10) per share, compared with a net loss of $23.3 million, or $(0.79) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2007. Presently, the Company has approximately 950 million shares outstanding.

Unexpected returns of Ganite® in the fourth quarter of 2008 resulted in no net reported sales during the fourth quarter and $0.4 million for the year compared with sales of $0.3 million and $0.6 million in their respective comparison periods.

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008 were $3.8 million and $20.0 million, respectively, compared with $1.2 million and $13.5 million for their comparison periods. The annual increase in expenses in 2008 is primarily due to the recognition in March 2008 of $2.5 million for license payments on tesetaxel, $1.0 million in accrued milestone payments related to tesetaxel and higher expenses resulting from the AGENDA clinical trial. These increases were partially offset by lower compensation expense, as the Company reduced its workforce to conserve cash in both April 2008 and in May 2008.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008 were $1.9 million and $10.5 million, respectively, compared with $4.0 million and $16.9 million for their comparison periods. The reductions are primarily due to our efforts at lowering administrative expenses, lower office rent and lower compensation expense.

In May 2008, to reduce its ongoing expenses, the Company reduced its office space. The Company’s landlord received a termination payment of $1.3 million, comprised of security deposits, and the Company agreed to a future payment of $2.0 million upon the earlier of July 1, 2009 or Genta’s receipt of at least $5.0 million from a business development transaction. This agreement resulted in an incremental $3.3 million in expenses for the year ended December 31, 2008. In January 2009, we entered into another amendment of our agreement with our landlord whereby the future payment of $2.0 million is now payable on January 1, 2011. The Company will pay 6.0% interest in arrears to our landlord from July 1, 2009 through the new payment date. The first interest payment of approximately $30 thousand will be payable as of October 1, 2009.

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company recorded an expense of $5.3 million that provided for the issuance of 2.0 million shares of Genta common stock, for a settlement in principle of class action litigation. This liability was marked to market until the date that the settlement became final, June 27, 2008. The fluctuation in the price of Genta’s common stock resulted in income of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, and income of $0.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2008, compared with $4.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2007.

In June 2008, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with certain institutional and accredited investors to place up to $40.0 million of senior secured convertible notes. On June 9, 2008, the Company placed $20.0 million of such notes in the initial closing. The notes bear interest at an annual rate of 15% payable at quarterly intervals in stock or cash at the Company's option, and are convertible into shares of Genta common stock at a conversion rate of 100,000 shares of common stock for every $1,000.00 of principal. The Company incurred a financing fee of $1.2 million, and in addition, issued a warrant to its financial advisor to purchase 40,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.02 per share.

On the date that the convertible notes were issued, there were an insufficient number of authorized shares of common stock in order to permit exercise of all of the issued convertible notes. In accordance with EITF 00-19 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” when there are insufficient authorized shares, the conversion obligation for the convertible notes is classified as a liability measured at fair value on the balance sheet. On June 9, 2008, based on a Black-Scholes valuation model that included a closing price of Genta’s common stock of $0.20 per share, a fair value of the conversion feature of $380.0 million was calculated, and that amount that exceeded the proceeds of the $20.0 million initial closing, $360.0 million, was expensed. The Company recorded an initial discount of $20.0 million equal to the face value of the notes.

Similarly, the warrant was treated as a liability, and was recorded at a fair value of $7.6 million based upon the Black-Scholes valuation model and a closing price of Genta’s common stock of $0.20 per share. The $20 million in initial discount on the convertible note, the $7.6 million recorded upon the issuance of the warrant and the $1.2 million financing fee are being amortized over the two-year life of the note, resulting in amortization of deferred financing costs of $6.8 million and $11.2 million, respectively, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2008.

On October 6, 2008, the date on which our stockholders approved an amendment to Genta’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to increase the total number of authorized shares of capital stock available for issuance, we re-measured the conversion feature liability and warrant liability and credited them to Stockholders’ equity, resulting in income of $40.0 million and $0.8 million for the fourth quarter, respectively and total expense for the year ended December 31, 2008 of $460.0 million and $2.0 million for the year, respectively.

Net other expense was $0.6 million and $1.4 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008, compared to net other income of $0.1 million and $0.8 million, respectively, for the prior-year comparison periods. This difference was due to accrued interest on the convertible notes and from lower investment income, resulting from lower investment balances.

At December 31, 2008, Genta had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaling $4.9 million compared with $7.8 million at December 31, 2007. During 2008, cash used in operating activities was $25.7 million compared with $31.7 million for the same period in 2007.

( -- Bebida Beverage Enters Agreement with Enzyme Environmental Solutions

FORT WAYNE, IN--(MARKET WIRE)--Feb 11, 2009 -- (Other OTC:EESO.PK - News) - Important note to shareholders: there was a discrepancy on the OS today; the OS has not been increased and this is being corrected promptly by the TA. This can be verified, if necessary, directly with Pacwest Transfer.

Environmental Solutions has had an incredible year thus far as its shareholders revel in the success of a recent retail licensing agreement to a network marketing entity poised to be a household name. The success is enhanced by materialization of deals with Bo and Su Lee (Star Towers, Inc. owners) for odor remediation in South Korea and new talks developing with an entity out of Canada regarding its work with garbage remediation in countries around the world including Jamaica and Ghana. On the Commercial side, EESO has recently secured a sizeable licensing and manufacturing agreement for an Enzyme-based Industrial Water Treatment and Pond Dye product with orders nationwide.

EESO recently solidified a deal with Bebida Beverage Company in which Bebida sought out EESO's proprietary enzymatic knowledge base for a new beverage line it is developing. "This brings another stream of revenue with upside potential to the company without any significant additional base costs," states Bill White, VP of Sales and Operations, "so deals like these are mutually beneficial both to our clients and to us in terms of profitability."

President and CEO of Enzyme Environmental Solutions, Jared Hochstedler is enthusiastic to add, "We'll be releasing last year's financials in detail so that shareholders and potential partners can see we're here for the long run. It's exciting to see our global initiative take hold so smoothly and it makes me very happy to announce that we will be releasing last year's financials as well as order-based forecasts for the end of this year. We'll do this before the shareholder's Open House on February 27th so it can truly be a celebration for all. All financials will be fully verifiable and will soundly prove our stock to be undervalued. While most companies are laying off thousands, we've taken on a larger work force and added a 2ndand 3rd shift to our day-to-day operations."

The financials for 2008 show sales in excess of 9 million dollars with 2009 expected to be exponentially higher based on both recent contracts and product order commitments.

Winning Colours Stain Remover begins its new marketing relationship with the internationally renowned World Cruise Industry Review in print and on-line commencing March 2009 to reach over 120 cruise ship operators around the world - and their passengers.

Winning Brands CEO Eric Lehner explains the significance of this development as evidence of the growing maturity of the relatively young company -- "Winning Brands could not have taken this global step last year, let alone 3 years ago when WNBD began trading. It requires production and account servicing be handled to a standard needed by the world's most discerning clients. This takes time to develop -- and any attempt to replace the benefits of careful planning with promotion would not have accelerated readiness. Winning Colours Stain Remover is proving to be a hit with consumers wherever they may be and commercial enterprises wherever stains happen. As we have always asserted -- stains happen everywhere and are desired nowhere. This is particularly true of the world's cruise lines -- arguably the world's most sophisticated hospitality service providers. The versatility of Winning Colours Stain Remover as the solution to so many stain removing challenges in a single bottle puts it in a convenience class of its own."

Winning Colours Stain Remover is gaining a reputation in retailing circles for being "unique" at a time when that word is increasingly difficult to justify. The product is becoming the natural choice for mass merchants and professionals dealing with stains of various kinds because of Winning Colours' gentleness to skin and delicate surfaces like clothing, carpeting & upholstery, while still being strong as a solvent in tackling paint messes, grease, grime and gunk.

Winning Colours Stain Remover is best known in Canada where it was developed, however U.S. consumers and retailers have been noticing, with the result that American distribution arrangements continue to improve. With varying degrees of early preparation and testing, China, India, Italy and Australia are export markets receiving attention from Winning Brands' planners. "The world's cruise industry is the most logical bridge to international distribution; it is both figuratively and literally the intermediate step," adds Lehner. Winning Colours Stain Remover is available not only in consumer sizes of 125ml and 909ml, but a variety of larger commercial sizes for industry as well.

Winning Colours Stain Remover is manufactured by Winning Brands' production subsidiary Niagara Mist Marketing Ltd. Production takes place at the Grand Rapids, Michigan facility of Surefil LLC and at Niagara Mist's St. Catharines, Ontario facilities. The mission of Winning Brands is to replace hazardous chemicals in widespread use with safer alternatives in the cleaning sector.

(CVIC.ob) - Cavico Corp Expects Strong Vietnamese Infrastructure Growth

LOS ANGELES & HANOI, Vietnam--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cavico Corp. (“Cavico” or “the Company”) (OTC BB: CVIC - News), a leading infrastructure development company in Vietnam, today announced that the Company doesn’t foresee any negative impact on the Vietnamese government’s planned infrastructure spending for 2009 due to the current global financial crisis. Cavico management believes that infrastructure growth continues to remain top priority for Vietnam.

Martin Rama, the World Bank’s Acting Country in Vietnam, was quoted as saying “Vietnam’s forecast GDP growth will take the lead in the South East Asia next year,” explaining that Vietnam is better at dealing with crisis than other countries in the region thanks to its economic restructuring before. The high GDP forecast of 6.5% is based on Vietnam’s FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) attraction and exports. Despite the global downturn, Vietnam’s exports posted 34% growth from Jan-Nov, and attracted $59.3 billion in first ten months, which is equivalent to two thirds of the country’s GDP value. The World Bank also predicted that the government will boost spending in the coming months.

Vietnam has topped a list of 2008’s biggest investors in Laos, implementing 146 projects with a total investment capital of $758 million. Vietnam’s projects in Laos are predominantly in the fields of mining, agriculture and forestry product processing, and hydro-power plant construction in Southern Laos. Lao Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Thongloun Sisoulith said in an interview that “Laos and Vietnam have enjoyed a close, long-lasting and historic relationship of friendship and cooperation in all aspects.”

“We continue to remain positive and confident of Vietnam’s strong growth potential. Cavico’s business growth is highly correlated to Vietnam’s economic and infrastructural development. Cavico is one of the largest and highly efficient hydropower and mining construction companies in the country. We believe Vietnam’s attractive growth outlook in 2009 combined with close ties with Laos will be favorable for Cavico’s future growth potential. In a span of two weeks in the month of January 2009 we have secured two hydropower tunnel construction projects, one in central Vietnam and one in Laos, totaled at $16 million,” commented Mr. Hung Manh Tran, executive vice president of Cavico Corp. “Our senior management has strong relationship with government officials which provide us a leading competitive edge and we expect to sign many more contracts in 2009.”
