SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTNP) announced today that it has filed its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (PRNewsfoto/Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)

In October 2020, Titan announced a strategic restructuring, including the discontinuation of its U.S. Probuphine® implant sales and the wind down of Probuphine commercialization activities. This was shortly followed with its acquisition of a kappa opioid agonist peptide, or TP-2021 (formerly JT-09), and the settlement of substantially all of its outstanding debt, all of which has enabled the Company to pursue a plan focused on its current, early-stage ProNeura®-based product development programs.

As a result of this restructuring, the financial statements in Titan's Form 10-K reflect results of operations from both continuing and discontinued operations.

Titan's net loss from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2020 was approximately $7.4 million, or approximately $1.96 per share, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of approximately $7.5 million, or approximately $9.78 per share, for the comparable period in 2019. The net loss from discontinued operations for the year ended December 31, 2020 was approximately $10.8 million, or approximately $2.87 per share, compared to a net loss from discontinued operations of approximately $9.0 million, or approximately $11.71 per share, for the comparable period in 2019.

At December 31, 2020, Titan had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $5.4 million, which the Company believes, together with the approximately $8.9 million of the net proceeds from its January 2021 Offering, are sufficient to fund its planned operations into the first quarter of 2022.

"As a result of our transition from a commercial-stage back to a development-stage company, we have discontinued hosting quarterly investor conference calls. Of course, Titan remains committed to disclosing all material news and information in a timely manner, and we look forward to updating investors accordingly as we move forward," said Marc Rubin, M.D., Titan's Executive Chairman.

A copy of Titan's annual report is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov, and on the Company's website at www.titanpharm.com under "Annual Reports" in the Investors section.
