AFFYMAX REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR-END 2012 FINANCIAL RESULTS
PALO ALTO, Calif., April 2, 2013 Affymax, Inc. (Nasdaq: AFFY) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $68.3 million (or ($1.85) per share) compared to a net loss of $29.4 million (or ($0.82) per share) for the fourth quarter of 2011.
On February 23, 2013, Affymax and its partner, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (Takeda) announced a nationwide voluntary recall of OMONTYS as a result of postmarketing reports regarding safety concerns, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening or fatal.

As of the result of the recall, we re-evaluated a number of estimates made as of period-end and recorded financial statement adjustments to reflect changes in those estimates as to the recoverability of inventory and deposits made to our contract manufacturing organizations, or CMOs, potential losses on firm purchase commitments and changes in the short-term and long-term classification of certain liabilities. In the aggregate, we recorded $45.0 million in impairment due to inventory and firm purchase commitments in the quarter ended December 31, 2012, with no comparable charge in the prior year.
Earlier this month, the Company began reorganizing its operations in order to significantly reduce operating costs and negotiating with Takeda to collaboratively focus on the OMONTYS safety and other related FDA issues associated with the recall of the product. In addition to the significant reduction in force of approximately 230 employees (75% of the Companys workforce), including the commercial and medical affairs field forces as well as other officers and employees throughout the organization, the Company is continuing to transition many of the ongoing activities to Takeda and negotiating with Takeda on costs allocated between the parties under the collaboration arrangement. In connection with this restructuring, the Board
