Closed initial public offering that raised $43.0 million in net proceeds

 

Malvern, PA, and San Diego, CA, March 26, 2019PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PHAS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapies for orphan diseases, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2018, and provided an update on corporate activities.

 

“For PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, 2018 was a transformative year during which we reported positive results from our Phase 1 trial of PB2452, completed a successful initial public offering and advanced our clinical program for PB1046,” said Jonathan P. Mow, Chief Executive Officer of PhaseBio. “We are pleased that the results from our Phase 1 clinical trial of PB2452 were presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the trial, PB2452 demonstrated an immediate and sustained reversal of the antiplatelet effects of ticagrelor. The totality of our recent accomplishments has positioned us well to deliver on our goal of bringing important therapies to patients with significant unmet medical need.”

 

Fourth Quarter and Recent Corporate Progress

 

 

Reported PB2452 Phase 1 results: In March 2019, full results from the Phase 1 clinical trial of PB2452 were published online in the New England Journal of Medicine in a paper titled, “An Antibody-Based Ticagrelor Reversal Agent in Normal Volunteers” and simultaneously presented in a featured clinical research session at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session. Results demonstrated PB2452 provided immediate and sustained reversal of the antiplatelet activity of ticagrelor.

 

 

Secured up to $15.0 million term loan facility: In March 2019, PhaseBio entered into a $15.0 million term loan facility with Silicon Valley Bank and WestRiver Innovation Lending Fund. PhaseBio received an initial tranche of $7.5 million upon execution of the loan agreement and will use the funds to repay an existing term loan in full. A second tranche of $2.5 million will be available through May 31, 2019. PhaseBio will draw the remaining funding of $5.0 million upon the achievement of certain clinical milestones related to the development of PB2452.

 

 

Appointed new members to the PhaseBio board of directors: In March 2019, Richard A. van den Broek was appointed to the board of directors. In December 2018, Edmund P. Harrigan, M.D., was appointed to the board of directors. Caroline M. Loewy was appointed to the board of directors in July 2018. Nancy Hutson, Ph.D., and Linda Tufts were appointed to the board of directors in March 2018.

 

 


 

 

Dosed first patient in PB1046 Phase 2b trial: In November 2018, PhaseBio dosed the first patient in a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group Phase 2b trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of PB1046 for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (“PAH”).

 

 

Completed initial public offering and Series D financing: In October 2018, PhaseBio closed an initial public offering of 9,864,666 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $5.00 per share, including shares sold pursuant to the partial exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares. PhaseBio received $43.0 million in net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. In September 2018, PhaseBio closed a Series D financing that resulted in net proceeds of $17.7 million.

 

 

Awarded $2.8 million NIH SBIR grant: In February 2018, PhaseBio was awarded a $2.8 million Fast Track Small Business Innovation Research (“SBIR”) grant from the National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) to support the clinical development of PB1046, a first-in-class, sustained-release vasoactive intestinal peptide analogue, in patients with PAH.

 

Upcoming Milestones

 

 

Initiate Phase 2a trial of PB2452 in the first half of 2019.

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2018 Financial Results

 

Cash Position

 

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2018 were $61.0 million, compared to $13.4 million at December 31, 2017. The increase reflects net proceeds from the initial public offering, the issuance of Series D preferred stock and net proceeds from term loan borrowings, partially offset by cash used in operating activities.

PhaseBio Announces Term Loan of up to $15 Million

 

Entered into term loan facility with Silicon Valley Bank and WestRiver Innovation Lending Fund to borrow up to $15 million

 

Funds will be used to advance clinical development of PB2452, a reversal agent for ticagrelor, and for repayment of the existing term loan

 

Malvern, PA, and San Diego, CA, March 25, 2019PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: PHAS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapies for orphan diseases, today announced that the Company has secured up to $15 million in funds to support the clinical advancement of PB2452, a novel reversal agent for the antiplatelet drug ticagrelor, and for repayment of PhaseBio’s existing term loan in full.

 

PhaseBio entered into a $15 million term loan facility with Silicon Valley Bank and WestRiver Innovation Lending Fund, subject to funding in up to three tranches. PhaseBio received the initial tranche of $7.5 million upon execution of the loan agreement and will use the funds to repay PhaseBio’s existing term loan in full. The second tranche of $2.5 million will be available through May 31, 2019. PhaseBio will draw the remaining funding of $5 million upon the achievement of certain clinical milestones.

 

“We are pleased that our new partnership with WestRiver Innovation Lending Fund and our continued partnership with Silicon Valley Bank are able to support clinical advancements for our product candidates, including PB2452, which has the potential to be an important treatment for patients on ticagrelor who experience major bleeding or require urgent surgery,” said John Sharp, Chief Financial Officer of PhaseBio. “This funding further strengthens our cash position and provides additional financial resources as we continue to focus on bringing meaningful therapies to patients who are currently without effective treatment options.”

 

“Working with PhaseBio, we have been impressed by the company’s commitment to advancing novel therapies for patients with orphan diseases,” said Tom Gordon, Managing Director at Silicon Valley Bank. “We are excited for the future of PB2452 and look forward to our continued partnership with PhaseBio.”

 

About PB2452

 

PB2452 is a novel, recombinant, human monoclonal antibody antigen-binding fragment, or Fab fragment, designed to reverse the antiplatelet activity of ticagrelor in major bleeding and urgent surgery situations. In Phase 1 clinical and preclinical studies, PB2452 achieved immediate and complete reversal of ticagrelor’s antiplatelet activity, and has the potential to bring life-saving therapeutic benefit by increasing the safety of ticagrelor and mitigating concerns regarding the bleeding risk associated with antiplatelet drugs. There are currently no approved reversal agents for ticagrelor or any other antiplatelet drugs.

PB2452: Well-Characterized Mechanism of Reversal of Ticagrelor ADP ADP Platelet ADP binds to P2Y12 receptor causing platelet aggregation Ticagrelor binds to P2Y12, inhibiting ADP-induced platelet aggregation This is a reversible process with ticagrelor cycling on/off the P2Y12 receptors PB2452:ticagrelor is eliminated from the bloodstream PB2452:ticagrelor binding is preferential to ticagrelor:P2Y12 binding As free ticagrelor is eliminated, ADP can again activate the P2Y12 receptor, restoring platelet activity PB2452 binds to free ticagrelor with very high affinity PB2452 4. 5. 6. 1. 2. 3.
