Invivyd Reports Full Year 2022 Financial Results and Business Highlights

Advancing VYD222 into clinical development based on in vitro data demonstrating neutralizing activity against multiple important variants of concern, including XBB.1.5

Anticipate near-term designation of an additional monoclonal antibody against SARS-CoV-2 with complementary binding properties to VYD222 for development

Well capitalized with $372 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities expected to support operating runway into second half of 2024

Conference call scheduled for Thursday, March 23rd at 4:30 p.m. ET

WALTHAM, Mass., March 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Invivyd, Inc. (Nasdaq: IVVD), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company on a mission to protect the vulnerable from serious viral infectious diseases, today announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022, and recent business highlights.

“2022 was a transformational year for Invivyd as we reformed our strategy and are now squarely focused on leveraging our integrated discovery platform to advance a stream of SARS-CoV-2 monoclonal antibody (mAb) candidates. There continues to be an urgent, unmet medical need for vulnerable populations given no antibodies are currently authorized,” said Dave Hering, CEO of Invivyd. “We are pleased to have recently announced plans to advance VYD222 into clinical development as a novel mAb therapeutic option for COVID-19. We believe VYD222 is a highly attractive candidate that could potentially leverage adintrevimab’s strong clinical data package to support potential accelerated development. Importantly, in vitro data on VYD222 has shown neutralizing activity against multiple currently circulating variants of concern, including those that led to the obsolescence of products previously authorized in the U.S. We continue to plan for a Phase 1 clinical trial start in Q1 2023. Assuming positive Phase 1 data, we anticipate rapidly initiating Phase 3 pivotal trials that could support regulatory filings globally.”

Recent Business Highlights

  • Earlier in March 2023, the company announced plans to advance VYD222 into the clinic as a mAb therapeutic option for COVID-19 with a focus on serving vulnerable populations. VYD222 is one of the two mAb components of NVD200, a combination mAb product candidate that Invivyd had previously selected for advancement prior to evolution in the current global COVID-19 regulatory paradigm. The company is prioritizing the clinical development of VYD222 instead of NVD200 with the aim of providing patients with a therapeutic option for COVID-19 as quickly and efficiently as possible. VYD222 was engineered from adintrevimab, Invivyd’s investigational mAb that has a robust safety data package and demonstrated clinically meaningful results in global Phase 3 clinical trials for both the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. The adintrevimab clinical data package has the potential to support accelerated development of VYD222. 
  • In March 2023, the company and collaborators published an article in the journal Science Translational Medicine titled, “Antibody-mediated protection against symptomatic COVID-19 can be achieved at low serum neutralizing titers.” The work builds on vaccine studies demonstrating neutralizing antibody titers as correlates of protection against disease and could inform the evolution of regulatory frameworks for therapeutic antibodies.
  • The company continues to leverage its integrated discovery platform, mapping common mutational escape routes to predict potential products to treat future variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Beyond VYD222, the company is continuously monitoring evolving variants and engineering to optimize pipeline candidates and has initiated a new mAb campaign that targets re-engineering and affinity maturations of current molecules against the most recent variants of concern, such as XBB.1.5. The company is currently evaluating several of these candidates in preclinical studies to support nomination of additional candidates for IND-enabling and clinical development.
  • In December 2022, the company was invited to participate in a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-European Medicines Agency workshop to explore expedited development pathways for mAbs. The meeting featured presentations by scientists, clinicians, regulators, and industry representatives to discuss alternative strategies to support the expedited availability of novel monoclonal antibody therapies. The company aims to leverage evolving COVID-19 regulatory paradigms to deliver this much-needed product for immunocompromised individuals and other vulnerable populations.
  • The company has announced key leadership positions that broaden the company’s industry expertise in support of its development and commercial planning.
    • Appointed Jeremy Gowler as chief operating officer and commercial officer. Mr. Gowler brings 20 years of experience across multiple key commercialization functions throughout the product lifecycle.
    • Promoted Pete Schmidt, M.D. to chief medical officer. Dr. Schmidt had served as Invivyd’s vice president of clinical research for the past two years, and is now responsible for overseeing all medical, clinical development and regulatory activities at Invivyd.

Year End 2022 Financial Results

  • Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $372 million as of December 31, 2022.
  • Cash Runway: Based on current operating plans, Invivyd expects its existing total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities will enable the company to fund its operating expenses into the second half of 2024.
  • Research & Development (R&D) Expenses (including In-process Research & Development): R&D expenses were $183.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $190.4 million for the comparable period of 2021. This decrease is attributable to wind-down of adintrevimab clinical trials, partially offset by an increase in contract manufacturing and personnel-related expenses, including an increase of $6.2 million of stock-based compensation expense.
  • Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) Expenses: SG&A expenses were $47.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $36.5 million for the comparable period of 2021. This increase is attributable to higher public company costs and personnel-related expenses.
  • Warrant Expense: Warrant expense was $17.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $0 for the comparable period of 2021. This increase is attributable to a one-time charge associated with warrants issued to Population Health Partners, L.P. (PHP) as compensation for consulting services to be provided by PHP to the company under the agreement entered into in the fourth quarter of 2022.
  • Net Loss and Net Loss per Share: Net loss was $241.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $226.8 million for the comparable period in 2021. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $2.23 for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $5.32 for the comparable period in 2021.
    • The net loss of $241.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022 included a one-time charge of $17.4 million related to the fair value of the warrants issued to PHP.
