MIAMI, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fortress Biotech, Inc. (NASDAQ: FBIO) (“Fortress”), an innovative biopharmaceutical company focused on efficiently acquiring, developing and commercializing or monetizing promising therapeutic products and product candidates, today announced financial results and recent corporate highlights for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Lindsay A. Rosenwald, M.D., Fortress’ Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Together with our subsidiaries and partner companies, Fortress had an exciting start to the year with the acquisition and commercial launch of two dermatology products, Amzeeq® and Zilxi®, bringing our total number of marketed prescription products to nine. Fortress also has a growing portfolio of 30 product candidates across our partner companies, including 20 separate clinical programs in 30 ongoing clinical trials. Four product candidates are in seven1 ongoing pivotal clinical trials. We were pleased to announce positive topline results from the registration-enabling study of cosibelimab in metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (“cSCC”) in January 2022. Throughout the remainder of 2022 we anticipate multiple key regulatory and clinical inflection points, such as the submission of a Biologics License Application (“BLA”) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for cosibelimab and the completion of Cyprium’s CUTX-101 rolling submission of its New Drug Application (“NDA”). CUTX-101 is eligible for a priority review voucher upon FDA approval. Moreover, we expect the availability of clinical data from many product candidates in ongoing clinical trials including MB-106, MB-107, cosibelimab and Dotinurad.”
Dr. Rosenwald continued, “We ended the first quarter with $289.7 million in consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. Additionally, we attained a new company quarterly record for net revenue, $23.9 million, which is an increase of 106% period-over-period. We believe that we are well-positioned for success with multiple product candidates and remain focused on creating long-term shareholder value through asset monetizations, equity holdings/appreciation in our subsidiaries and partner companies, annual equity dividends and royalty revenues.”
Recent Corporate Highlights2:
Marketed Dermatology Products and Product Candidates
- Journey Medical Corporation (“Journey Medical”), a Fortress partner company, currently has nine prescription dermatology products.
- Our products generated net revenues of $20.8 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to first quarter 2021 net revenues of $10.7 million, representing growth of 94%.
- In March 2022, Journey Medical dosed the first patient in the Phase 3 clinical program of DFD-29 for the treatment of papulopustular rosacea. Topline data are anticipated in the first quarter of 2023 with an NDA filing expected in the second half of 2023.
- In January 2022, Journey Medical received notice from its exclusive licensing partner in Japan, Maruho Co., Ltd., that Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare approved Rapifort® Wipes 2.5% (glycopyrronium tosylate hydrate) for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis. This approval triggered a milestone payment of $10.0 million to Journey Medical, of which $7.5 million was paid to Dermira, Inc. (“Dermira”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Eli Lilly and Company, pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement between Journey Medical and Dermira, with net proceeds of $2.5 million to Journey Medical.
- Also in January 2022, Journey Medical entered into a definitive agreement with VYNE Therapeutics, Inc. to acquire two FDA-approved topical minocycline products, Amzeeq® and Zilxi®, and a Molecule Stabilizing Technology™ platform for an upfront payment of $20.0 million and an additional $5.0 million on the one (1)-year anniversary of the closing of the transaction in January 2023.
- Additionally, in January 2022, Journey Medical expanded the borrowing capacity of the East West Bank credit agreement to $30.0 million, which includes an increase to the working capital line of credit to $10.0 million and the addition of a $20.0 million term loan.
- We intend to launch an additional prescription product in the second half of 2022.
CUTX-101 (Copper Histidinate for Menkes disease)
- In December 2021, we initiated the rolling submission of an NDA to the FDA for CUTX-101. We intend to complete the rolling submission of the NDA for CUTX-101 in mid-2022.
- In March 2022, our subsidiary company, Cyprium Therapeutics, Inc (“Cyprium”) announced positive data on CUTX-101 were presented as a “Top-Rated Abstract” and Poster at the 2022 American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics Clinical Genetics Meeting. The abstract can be viewed here.
- CUTX-101 is currently in development at Cyprium.
CAEL-101 (Light Chain Fibril-reactive Monoclonal Antibody for AL Amyloidosis)
- On October 5, 2021, AstraZeneca acquired Caelum for an upfront payment of approximately $150 million paid to Caelum shareholders, of which approximately $56.9 million was paid to Fortress, net of Fortress’ $6.4 million portion of the $15 million, 24-month escrow holdback amount and other miscellaneous transaction expenses. The agreement also provides for additional potential payments to Caelum shareholders totaling up to $350 million, payable upon the achievement of regulatory and commercial milestones. Fortress is eligible to receive 42.4% of all potential milestone payments, totaling up to approximately $212 million.
- There are two ongoing Phase 3 studies of CAEL-101 for AL amyloidosis. (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifiers: NCT04512235 and NCT04504825).
- CAEL-101 was sourced by Fortress and was developed by Caelum until the acquisition by AstraZeneca in October 2021.
Cosibelimab (formerly CK-301, an anti-PD-L1 antibody)
- In January 2022, we announced positive topline results from our registration-enabling clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of our anti-PD-L1 antibody, cosibelimab, administered as a fixed dose of 800 mg every two weeks in patients with metastatic cSCC. The study met its primary endpoint, with cosibelimab demonstrating a confirmed objective response rate of 47.4% (95% CI: 36.0, 59.1) based on independent central review of 78 patients enrolled in the metastatic cSCC cohort using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 criteria. Our partner company, Checkpoint Therapeutics, Inc. (“Checkpoint”) intends to submit a BLA for cosibelimab in 2022, followed by a Marketing Authorization Application submission in Europe and other territories worldwide. With a potentially favorable safety profile versus anti-PD-1 therapy and a plan to commercialize at a substantially lower price, we believe cosibelimab has the potential to be a market disruptive product in the $30 billion and growing PD-(L)1 class.
- In April 2022, we announced that the results of our pivotal trial of cosibelimab in cSCC were selected for poster presentation at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, to be held at McCormick Place, in Chicago, June 3-7, 2022.
- Cosibelimab was sourced by Fortress and is currently in development at Checkpoint.
MB-106 (CD20-targeted CAR T Cell Therapy)
- In April 2022, we announced that interim Phase 1/2 data on MB-106, a CD20-targeted, autologous CAR T cell therapy for patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (“NHL”) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (“CLL”), were presented at the 2022 Tandem Meetings I Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Meetings of the American Society of Transplantation and Cellular Therapy and Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research. Data demonstrated high efficacy and a very favorable safety profile in all patients (n=25). Five dose levels were used during the study, and complete responses were observed at all dose levels. Durable responses were observed in a wide range of hematologic malignancies including follicular lymphoma (“FL”), CLL, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (“DLBCL”), and Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (“WM”). An overall response rate (“ORR”) of 96% and complete response (“CR”) rate of 72% was observed in all patients across all dose levels. Additionally, two patients had been previously treated with CD19-directed CAR T therapy and subsequently relapsed, and both responded to treatment, one patient with FL with a CR and the other with DLBCL with a partial response. We expect to dose the first patient in a Mustang-sponsored multicenter Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of MB-106 for relapsed or refractory B-NHL and CLL in the second quarter of this year. A copy of the abstract can be viewed on the meeting website here.
- Also in April 2022, MB-106 data focused on CLL were presented at the 4th International Workshop on CAR-T and Immunotherapies.
- In May 2022, we announced that MB-106 CD20-targeted CAR T therapy data were selected for an oral presentation at the European Hematology Association 2022 (“EHA2022”) Hybrid Congress scheduled to take place in June. Dr. Mazyar Shadman of Fred Hutch will present updated interim data from the ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial for B-NHL and CLL. A copy of the abstract can be viewed online through the EHA2022 website here.
- MB-106 was sourced by Fortress and is currently in development at our partner company, Mustang Bio, Inc. (“Mustang Bio”).
MB-107 and MB-207 (Lentiviral Gene Therapies for XSCID)
- In May 2022, we announced that interim Phase 1/2 data on treatment with the same lentiviral vector used in MB-107, Mustang Bio’s lentiviral gene therapy for X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (“XSCID”), also known as bubble boy disease, in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two, were selected for an oral presentation during the Clinical Trials Spotlight Symposium at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy 25th Annual Meeting taking place May 16-19, 2022, both virtually and in Washington, D.C. The presentation will include updated data from a multicenter Phase 1/2 clinical trial for XSCID in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco and Seattle Children’s Hospital. The abstract can be viewed on the meeting website here. Information on such website is not part of this release.
- In the second half of 2022, we expect to enroll the first patient in a pivotal multicenter Phase 2 clinical trial under Mustang Bio’s Investigational New Product Drug Application (“IND”) to evaluate MB-107, a lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of infants under the age of two with XSCID.
- Mustang Bio filed an IND application in December 2021 for its pivotal multicenter Phase 2 clinical trial of MB-207, a lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of patients with XSCID who have been previously treated with a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and for whom re-treatment is indicated. The trial is currently on hold pending CMC clearance from the FDA, and based on feedback from the Agency, Mustang Bio expects to enroll the first patient in a pivotal multicenter Phase 2 clinical trial in the first quarter of 2023.
- MB-107 and MB-207 were sourced by Fortress and are currently in development at Mustang Bio.
Dotinurad (Urate Transporter (URAT1) Inhibitor)
- In May 2021, we announced an exclusive license agreement with Fuji Yakuhin Co. Ltd. to develop Dotinurad in North America and Europe. Dotinurad is a potential best-in-class urate transporter (URAT1) inhibitor for gout and possibly other hyperuricemic indications including chronic kidney disease (CKD) and heart failure. Dotinurad (URECE® tablet) was approved in Japan in 2020 as a once-daily oral therapy for gout and hyperuricemia. Dotinurad was efficacious and well-tolerated in more than 500 Japanese patients treated for up to 58 weeks in Phase 3 clinical trials. Over 1,000 Japanese patients have been treated safely with this drug.
- In December 2021, we filed an IND with the FDA. We expect to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial to evaluate Dotinurad for the treatment of gout in the first half of 2022. We anticipate topline data from the Phase 1 trial in the second half of 2022.
- Dotinurad was sourced by Fortress and is currently in development at our subsidiary company, UR-1 Therapeutics.
MB-105 (PSCA-targeted CAR T Cell Therapy)
- In February 2022, Phase 1 data on MB-105, a prostate stem cell antigen (“PSCA”)-targeted CAR T cell therapy administered systemically to patients with PSCA-positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (“mCRPC”), were presented by City of Hope at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. The data indicated that PSCA-targeted CAR T-cell therapy is feasible in patients with mCRPC with dose-limiting toxicity of cystitis and is associated with preliminary anti-tumor effect at a dose of 100 million cells plus lymphodepletion. It was concluded that escalation up to the next dose level of 300 million cells plus modified lymphodepletion can proceed in the trial.
- MB-105 was sourced by Fortress and is currently in development at Mustang Bio.
MB-109 (MB-101 (IL13Rα2-targeted CAR T Cell Therapy) + MB-108 Oncolytic Virus)
- In April 2022, we announced our plan to file an IND in the second half of 2022 to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial combining CAR T cells and an oncolytic virus for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma (“rGBM”), supported by interim data from two ongoing investigator-sponsored Phase 1 clinical trials evaluating two clinical candidates, MB‐101 (IL13Rα2‐targeted CAR T cell therapy licensed from City of Hope) and MB-108 (C134 oncolytic virus licensed from Nationwide Children’s Hospital). The data are from a late-breaking poster presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2022. Preclinical data also presented support the safety of administering these two therapies sequentially to optimize treatment in a regimen designated as MB-109.
- MB-101 and MB-108 were sourced by Fortress and they are currently in development at Mustang Bio.
- In April 2022, Fortress participated in a two-day summit hosted by the B. Riley Securities’ Healthcare Equity Research team that featured multiple programs from Fortress’ diversified pipeline. Webcast replays are available on Fortress’ website here.
To assist our stockholders in understanding our company, we have prepared non-GAAP financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. These results exclude the operations of our four public partner companies: Avenue Therapeutics, Inc. (“Avenue”), Checkpoint, Journey Medical and Mustang Bio, as well as any one-time, non-recurring, non-cash transactions. The goal in providing these non-GAAP financial metrics is to highlight the financial results of Fortress’ core operations, which are comprised of our privately held development-stage entities, as well as our business development and finance functions. See “Use of Non-GAAP Measures” below.
- As of March 31, 2022, Fortress’ consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $289.7 million, compared to $308.0 million as of December 31, 2021, a decrease of $18.3 million during the quarter.
- On a GAAP basis, Fortress’ net revenue totaled $23.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, which included $20.8 million in net revenue generated from our marketed dermatology products. This compares to net revenue totaling $11.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, which included $10.7 million in net revenue generated from our marketed dermatology products.
- On a GAAP basis, consolidated research and development expenses including license acquisitions were $36.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $20.2 million for the first quarter of 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, Fortress research and development expenses were $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $4.1 million for first quarter of 2021.
- On a GAAP basis, consolidated selling, general and administrative expenses were $26.3 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $17.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, Fortress selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.2 million, for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2021.
- On a GAAP basis, consolidated net loss attributable to common stockholders was $15.8 million, or $0.18 per share, for the first quarter of 2022, compared to consolidated net loss attributable to common stockholders of $8.8 million, or $0.11 per share for the first quarter of 2021.
- Fortress’ non-GAAP loss attributable to common stockholders was $5.7 million, or $0.07 per share, for the first quarter of 2022, compared to Fortress’ non-GAAP loss attributable to common stockholders of $8.5 million, or $0.11 per share, for the first quarter of 2021.
Use of Non-GAAP Measures:
In addition to the GAAP financial measures as presented in this press release and that will be presented in our Form 10-Q to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 12, 2022, the Company, in this press release, has included certain non-GAAP measurements. The non-GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders is defined by the Company as GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders, less net losses attributable to common stockholders from our public partner companies Avenue, Checkpoint, Journey Medical and Mustang Bio (“public partner companies”), as well as our former subsidiary, Caelum. In addition, the Company has also provided a Fortress non-GAAP loss attributable to common stockholders which is a modified EBITDA calculation that starts with the non-GAAP loss attributable to common stockholders and removes stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense, amortization of licenses and debt discount, changes in fair values of investment, changes in fair value of derivative liability, and depreciation expense. The Company also provides non-GAAP research and development expenses including license acquisitions, defined as GAAP research and development costs, less research and development costs of our public partner companies and non-GAAP consolidated selling, general and administrative expenses, defined as GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, less selling, general and administrative costs of our public partner companies.
Management believes each of these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance because (i) it allows for greater transparency with respect to key measures used by management in its financial and operational decision-making; (ii) it excludes the impact of non-cash or, when specified, non-recurring items that are not directly attributable to the Company's core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the Company's core operating performance; and (iii) it is used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help analyze the Company's standalone results separate from the results of its public partner companies. However, non-GAAP loss attributable to common stockholders and any other non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company and the manner in which they are calculated may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures or the calculations of the same non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the Company's competitors.
