Driven by strong revenues of EUR 30.5 m in the fourth quarter and income tax effects, Intercell´s profit for the full year 2008 was EUR 17.2 m, compared to EUR 5.0 m in the prior year. The annual revenues increased from EUR 53.3 m in the year ended December 31, 2007 to EUR 55.8 m in the year ended December 31, 2008. R&D costs for the full year 2008 increased to EUR 56.1 m and enabled the strong progression of Intercell's late-stage pipeline, including the advanced clinical programs acquired with Iomai Corporation. Cash and marketable securities of EUR 190.9 m at year-end give Intercell a strong financial position and will allow aggressive investment in late-stage pipeline products. Intercell's vaccine to prevent Japanese Encephalitis, IXIARO®, received positive CHMP opinion in Europe and product approval in Australia, with U.S. approval expected in the near future. No additional requests or comments from the authorities are pending; hence the remaining administrative steps are expected to be concluded soon.
