Recent Corporate Highlights

  • On February 22, 2022, Inhibrx announced that it had entered into an amendment to its Loan and Security Agreement with Oxford Finance LLC. The amendment provides for the funding of an additional $130.0 million in gross proceeds, $40.0 million of which was funded upon execution of the amendment on February 18, 2022, with the remaining $90.0 million to be funded in three separate tranches upon future milestone events.
  • On March 3, 2022, Inhibrx announced that the FDA granted orphan-drug designation for INBRX-101 for the treatment of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, or AATD.
  • On April 5, 2022, Inhibrx announced that it will be presenting late-breaking data from INBRX-101 at the American Thoracic Society 2022 Conference taking place May 13-18, 2022.
  • On April 25, 2022, Inhibrx announced the formation of a Scientific Advisory Board, comprised of the top global experts in AATD, for INBRX-101.

Financial Results

  • Cash and Cash Equivalents. As of March 31, 2022, Inhibrx had cash and cash equivalents of $143.5 million, compared to $131.3 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • R&D Expense. Research and development expenses were $24.9 million during the first quarter of 2022, compared to $16.4 million during the first quarter of 2021. This overall increase was primarily due to an increase in work performed by Inhibrx's contract development and manufacturing organization partners for the formulation and manufacturing of certain of its therapeutic candidates, as well as an increase in clinical trial expenses based on the initiation of a potentially registration-enabling Phase 2 trial in conventional chondrosarcoma and the progression of ongoing Phase 1 trials. Additionally, personnel-related costs increased during the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the same period in the prior year as a result of the continued expansion of Inhibrx.
  • G&A Expense. General and administrative expenses were $5.1 million during the first quarter of 2022, compared to $3.0 million during the first quarter of 2021. This overall increase was primarily driven by an increase of approximately $1.4 million in additional personnel-related costs, as well as marketing research expenses related to the initiation of our potential commercialization efforts for INBRX-101 and INBRX-109.
  • Net Loss. Net loss was $31.3 million during the first quarter of 2022, or $0.80 per share, compared to $19.3 million during the first quarter of 2021, or $0.51 per share.

About the Inhibrx sdAb Platform
Inhibrx utilizes diverse methods of protein engineering in the construction of therapeutic candidates that can address the specific requirements of complex target and disease biology. A key tool for this effort is the Inhibrx proprietary sdAb platform, which enables the development of therapeutic candidates with attributes superior to other monoclonal antibody and fusion protein approaches. This platform allows the combination of multiple binding units in a single molecule, enabling the creation of therapeutic candidates with defined valency or multiple specificities that can achieve enhanced cell signaling or conditional activation. An additional benefit of this platform is that these optimized, multi-functional entities can be manufactured using the established processes that are commonly used to produce therapeutic proteins.
