Idera Pharmaceuticals : Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update

08/09/2021 | 04:16pm EDT

EXTON, Pa., Aug. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Idera” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: IDRA) today reported its financial and operational results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

“Our goal is to add new development or commercial-stage assets to Idera’s portfolio, and our team is very encouraged by the high quality and quantity of opportunities we have been presented with,” stated Vincent Milano, Idera’s Chief Executive Officer. “Several of these prospects continue to advance, and we remain optimistic in Idera’s future potential.”

Added Mr. Milano, “We also maintain our interest in the potential of tilsotolimod. Enrollment is complete and we continue to treat patients in the second stage of ILLUMINATE-206, our Phase 2 study in combination with BMS’s nivolumab and ipilimumab for patients with microsatellite-stable colorectal cancer. We also continue to support AbbVie in the form of study drug in their trial for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.”

Second Quarter Financial Results
Research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2021 totaled $3.9 million, compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2020. General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 totaled $2.5 million compared to $2.6 million for the same period in 2020. Restructuring costs for the three months ended June 30, 2021 totaled approximately $1.2 million and relate to a reduction in force initiated in April 2021 to better align our workforce to our ongoing operational and business development activities. No such costs were incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2020. Additionally, during the three months ended June 30, 2020, we recorded $0.9 million and $15.3 million non-cash warrant revaluation loss and non-cash future tranche right revaluation loss, respectively, related to securities issued in connection with our December 2019 private placement transaction. No such non-cash losses were recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2021.

As a result of the factors above, net loss applicable to common stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was $7.6 million or $0.15 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $24.2 million or $0.72 per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2020.
Excluding the non-cash loss of approximately $16.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 related to the securities issued in connection with the December 2019 private placement transaction, net loss applicable to common stockholders was $8.0 million.
