Innate Pharma SA (Euronext Paris: IPH - ISIN: FR0010331421; Nasdaq: IPHA) ("Innate" or the "Company") today announced its revenues and cash position for the first nine months of 2020.
"In November, we were very pleased that our lead proprietary asset, lacutamab, was awarded PRIME designation in Sezary Syndrome by the European Medicines Agency, which follows the US Fast Track designation by the FDA last year. Lacutamab is an important part of our strategy to build a focused proprietary pipeline, and these regulatory milestones further validate the unmet need in this patient population," said Mondher Mahjoubi, Chief Executive Officer of Innate Pharma. "In addition, the Phase 3 monalizumab clinical trial recently initiated by AstraZeneca is an important achievement for the Company, as it both validates our scientific approach while fortifying our cash position until the end of 2022. Collectively, these milestones are strong proof points in executing on our strategy and accelerating our efforts to deliver meaningful medicines to patients."
Third quarter 2020 and post-period events:
Lacutamab (IPH4102, anti-KIR3DL2 antibody):
Monalizumab (anti-NKG2A antibody), partnered with AstraZeneca:
Avdoralimab in Inflammation (IPH5401, anti-C5aR antibody):
Avdoralimab in COVID-19:
Lumoxiti, a first-in-class marketed product for the treatment of relapsed or refractory hairy cell leukemia:
Cash, cash equivalents and financial assets of the Company amounted to EUR163.6 million as of September 30, 2020. As it is a post closing event, the $50 million milestone upcoming payment for the first patient dosed in the Interlink-1 Phase 3 study of monalizumab are not included in those figures. Financial liabilities amounted to EUR19.8 million.
For the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019 and 2020, revenue from collaboration and licensing agreements mainly results from the spreading of the initial payments received under our agreements with AstraZeneca. Due to accounting rules and the timing of costs related to development activities under the collaboration with AstraZeneca, the recognition of this revenue can vary on a quarter by quarter each year. As a reminder, this has no impact on cash. Revenues for the first nine-months of 2020 amounted to EUR33.6 million, compared to EUR65.4 million for the same period in 2019.
