NovaDel Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter and Six Months ended June 30, 2010

BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NovaDel Pharma Inc. (OTCBB: NVDL) (the “Company”), a specialty pharmaceutical company developing oral spray formulations for a broad range of prescription products, reported financial results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010. For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010, NovaDel reported a net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.01 per share, and $2.4 million, or $0.03 per share, respectively, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.03 per share, and $3.8 million, or $0.06 per share, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2009. As of June 30, 2010, NovaDel’s cash and cash equivalents were $3.1 million.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, the loss from operations was $1.3 million as compared to $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2009. The decrease of $0.2 million is attributable to reductions in overall spending through reduced headcount and relocation of its office facilities, offset in part by project development costs relating to Duromist™, its oral spray formulation of sildenefil citrate for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Steven B. Ratoff, Chairman and CEO said, “I am pleased with the progress made during the second quarter in managing our expenses as we move forward with the development of Duromist™. Our pilot pharmacokinetic trial for Duromist™ was initiated on July 31, 2010. We also look forward to the commercialization of NitroMist® and Zolpimist™ by our licensees, which we expect later this year.”
