07:36 EDTARIAARIAD says Iclusig shows anti-leukemic activity in long-term follow up data
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced long-term follow up data from the Phase 1 trial of Iclusig, its approved BCR-ABL inhibitor, in heavily pretreated patients with resistant or intolerant chronic myeloid leukemia or Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The study now shows that with a median follow-up of four years in chronic phase CML patients, Iclusig continues to demonstrate anti-leukemic activity in patients with limited treatment options and that responses have been maintained in CP-CML patients with 72 percent having a major cytogenetic response, 65 percent having a complete cytogenetic response and 56 percent having a major molecular response. Long-term safety data show that careful benefit-risk evaluations should guide decisions to use and maintain ponatinib therapy, particularly in patients who may be at increased risk for arterial thrombotic events. These data were featured in a poster presentation on December 8 at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology taking place in San Francisco.

08:43 EDTPSECProspect Capital suspends ATM equitiy issuance, reduces dividends
Prospect Capital announced that, in light of current share price levels, Prospect has suspended at-the-market equity issuances for the indefinite future. Prospect will continue to take a disciplined approach to any future potential equity issuance, the company said. As of September 30, Prospect's asset concentration in the energy industry stood at 5.1%, including Prospect's first lien senior secured loans where third parties bear first loss capital risk. As of December 31, 2013, Prospect's loan non-accrual rate stood at 0.32%, weighted average portfolio net leverage stood at 4.49 times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization and trailing twelve month first lien origination mix stood at 58.3%. Prospect announced it has declared reduced monthly cash dividends to shareholders in the following amounts and with the following record and payment dates: 8.333c per share for February 2015, with a record date of February 27, 2015 and payment date of March 19, 2015; 8.333c per share for March 2015, with a record date of March 31, 2015 and payment date of April 23, 2015; and 8.333c per share for April 2015, with a record date of April 30, 2015 and payment date of May 21, 2015. "As our updated credit statistics show, we have elected in the past year to take on less risk and focus on higher earnings quality by increasing our percentage of first lien loans and accepting lower interest rates in this yield compressed environment. We have not chased higher yields that we believe do not compensate for risk. While we have more than covered our prior dividends out of taxable earnings, we are reducing the next three declared dividends from past levels because we believe we should pay a dividend that is no more than our minimum expected net investment income, based on our expectations over the next twelve months," said John Barry III, Chairman and CEO of Prospect.
