Financial Results


Our consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations have been reclassified, as required by current accounting standards, for all periods presented to reflect the line of business sold to Cardinal Health 414, LLC in March 2017 as a discontinued operation. Accordingly, this discussion focuses on describing results of our operations as if we had not operated the discontinued operation during the periods being disclosed.



Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $119,000, compared to $395,000 in the same period of 2017. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in grant revenue related to SBIR grants from the NIH supporting Manocept development. Total revenues for the full year of 2018 were $1.2 million, compared to $1.8 million in 2017. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in grant revenue, offset by increased license revenue related to the sublicense of NAV4694 to Meilleur. Revenue in both years included other revenue from our marketing partners in Europe and China related to development work performed at their request.



The following information was filed by Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (NAVB) on Thursday, March 7, 2019 as an 8K 2.02 statement, which is an earnings press release pertaining to results of operations and financial condition.
