4D Molecular Therapeutics Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2021 and Provides Operational Highlights

11/10/2021 | 04:02pm EST

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 4D Molecular Therapeutics (Nasdaq: FDMT), a clinical-stage gene therapy company harnessing the power of directed evolution for targeted gene therapies, announced financial results for the third quarter of 2021 and provided operational highlights.

“4DMT continues to advance our diverse pipeline of product candidates that utilize our targeted and evolved vectors invented through Therapeutic Vector Evolution. Over this past quarter we released promising initial clinical data on three programs, including on 4D-310 for Fabry disease,” said David Kirn, M.D., Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of 4DMT. “We also opened INDs for both our wet AMD product candidate 4D-150 and for our cystic fibrosis product candidate 4D-710. Finally, we significantly strengthened our balance sheet through a follow-on offering of common stock raising net proceeds to 4DMT of approximately $111 million. Looking ahead to 2022, the company expects to have five product candidates in clinical development in three different therapeutic areas, including for both rare and large market diseases. By harnessing the power of directed evolution to develop targeted gene therapies, 4DMT is continuing our mission to unlock the full potential of gene therapy for countless patients.”

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Provided clinical data updates on 3 programs, including first-ever clinical activity data from two 4DMT targeted and evolved vectors: C102 for systemic low dose cardiovascular delivery and R100 for routine intravitreal delivery.

    • Phase 1/2 data from the C102-product candidate 4D-310 for Fabry disease, which demonstrated AGA enzyme activity that was within, or significantly above, the normal range in all three patients (up to 25-fold above mean normal AGA activity) including patients with high titer antibodies to AGA. In addition, 4D-310 had a manageable safety profile, without dose-limiting toxicity.

    • Phase 1/2 data from the R100-based gene therapies 4D-125 for XLRP and 4D-110 for choroideremia, which demonstrated both intravitreal product candidates were well tolerated at planned doses and were associated with signs of clinical activity, including reduced photoreceptor loss by ellipsoid zone area and reduced retinal pigment epithelium loss by fundus autofluorescence (4D-110). 4DMT expects to continue enrollment at the 1E12 vg/eye dose level for 4D-125 and at the 3E11 vg/eye dose level for 4D-110.

  • In October 2021, 4DMT announced the pricing of a public offering of common stock with expected total gross proceeds of approximately $119 million, before deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and other offering expenses.

  • Received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the 4DMT Investigational New Drug (IND) Applications for the Phase 1/2 clinical trials of 4D-150 for wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and of 4D-710 for cystic fibrosis.

  • Received clearance from the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration for the 4DMT Investigational New Drug (IND) Application for the Pacific Rim Phase 1/2 clinical trial of 4D-310 for Fabry disease. 4DMT also announced that this clinical trial is designed to include cardiac biopsies post-treatment to assess 4D-310 delivery to the heart.

Expected Upcoming Milestones

  • Interim clinical data from the Phase 1/2 clinical trial of 4D-310 in Fabry disease expected in 2022

  • First patient dosing in the 4D-150 Phase 1/2 clinical trial for wet AMD expected in the first quarter of 2022

  • First patient dosing in the 4D-710 Phase 1/2 clinical trial for cystic fibrosis expected in the first half of 2022

  • Continued enrollment in both the 4D-125 for x-linked retinitis pigmentosa and 4D-110 for choroideremia Phase 1/2 clinical trials

Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2021

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Marketable Securities: Cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities were $227 million as of September 30, 2021. In addition, the October 2021 public offering of common stock resulted in net proceeds of approximately $111 million. 4DMT has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 712,500 shares of common stock at the public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. We currently expect cash and cash equivalents, inclusive of net proceeds from the offering, to be sufficient to fund operations into the second half of 2024.

Revenue: Total revenue was $1.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $7.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. This decrease was primarily driven by decreased revenue recognized under the Roche collaboration agreement, which was terminated in September 2021.

R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $15.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $11.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily driven by increased payroll and stock-based compensation expense.

G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $8.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $3.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily due to increased payroll and stock-based compensation expense, business insurance expense and professional service expenses.

Net Loss: Net loss was $22.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $7.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

About 4DMT

4DMT is a clinical-stage company harnessing the power of directed evolution for targeted gene therapies. 4DMT seeks to unlock the full potential of gene therapy using its platform, Therapeutic Vector Evolution, which combines the power of directed evolution with approximately one billion synthetic capsid sequences to invent evolved vectors for use in targeted gene therapy products. The company is initially focused in three therapeutic areas: ophthalmology, cardiology, and pulmonology. The 4DMT targeted and evolved vectors are invented with the goal of being delivered through clinically routine, well-tolerated and minimally invasive routes of administration, transducing diseased cells in target tissues efficiently, having reduced immunogenicity and, where relevant, having resistance to pre-existing antibodies. 4DMT is currently advancing five product candidates in clinical development: 4D-310 for Fabry disease, 4D-150 for wet AMD, 4D-125 for XLRP, 4D-710 for cystic fibrosis and 4D-110 for choroideremia. 4D Molecular Therapeutics™, 4DMT™, Therapeutic Vector Evolution™, and the 4DMT logo are trademarks of 4DMT.

4D-310, 4D-125 and 4D-110 are in clinical trials and have not yet been approved for marketing by the US FDA or any other regulatory authority. No representation is made as to the safety or effectiveness of 4D-310, 4D-125 or 4D-110 for the therapeutic use for which they are being studied.
