Immatics Announces Full Year 2020 Financial Results and Corporate Update

Tuebingen, GERMANY


  • Phase 1a data update from clinical ACTengine® programs demonstrated first anti-tumor activity at early phases of dose escalation in heavily pre-treated solid cancer patients
  • Enrollment across clinical ACTengine® IMA200 trial series continues to scale up
  • Cash and cash equivalents as well as other financial assets of $285 million1 (€232 million) as of December 31, 2020 provide cash reach into 2023

Tuebingen, Germany and Houston, TX, March 30, 2021 – Immatics N.V. (NASDAQ: IMTX; “Immatics”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company active in the discovery and development of T cell redirecting cancer immunotherapies, today provided an update on its corporate progress and reported financial results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Harpreet Singh, Ph.D., CEO of Immatics commented, “The past year was exceptional for Immatics with the advancement of our pipeline programs, expansion of our leadership team and scientific advisory board and the completion of our listing on the Nasdaq. Building on this foundation, we have recently delivered encouraging data from three clinical TCR-T studies demonstrating first anti-tumor activity in heavily pre-treated solid cancer patients. This early data also constitutes a first clinical validation for our differentiated TCR therapeutics platform. We look forward to reporting further data from our Phase 1 ACTengine® TCR-T trials as well as the progress in our TCR Bispecifics programs (TCER®) in the latter part of this year.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Company Progress

Adoptive Cell Therapy Programs

  • ACTengine® IMA200 series - Immatics provided a clinical data update from three ongoing ACTengine® Phase 1 trials for its engineered Adoptive Cell Therapy approach (also known as TCR-T) in March. The combined data readout during early phases of dose escalation for the ACTengine® programs, IMA201, IMA202 and IMA203, indicated first anti-tumor activity with tumor shrinkage observed in 8 out of 10 patients including one unconfirmed partial response as of data cut-off. This was consistent with the observed robust engraftment, persistence and tumor infiltration of infused ACTengine® T cells. Overall, all product candidates demonstrated a manageable safety and tolerability profile. An additional Phase 1a read-out for IMA201 and IMA203 and initial Phase 1b data for IMA202 from the dose expansion cohort is planned for H2 2021. Submission of a clinical trial application (CTA) for the fourth IMA200 series program, IMA204, remains anticipated for H2 2021. The company presented the first preclinical data for the program in September 2020, which is directed at a novel target, COL6A3 exon 6 that is expressed in the tumor stroma of a variety of solid cancers.

         
TCR Bispecifics Programs

  • IMA401 – Immatics presented preclinical proof-of-concept data from its lead TCER® program, IMA401, at the European Antibody Congress 2020 in November. IMA401 is an antibody-like, “off-the-shelf” biologic directed against a high-density peptide target derived from MAGEA4/8. Submission of a CTA for IMA401 remains on track by the end of 2021.
     
  • IMA402 – Immatics plans to announce preclinical proof-of-concept data for its second TCER® program, IMA402 in Q2 2021. GMP process development activities are targeted to begin at the same time to advance this program towards the Investigational New Drug (IND) stage and clinical development.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Cash Position: Cash and cash equivalents as well as other financial assets total €232.0 million ($284.7 million1) as of December 31, 2020 compared to €119.4 million ($146.5 million1) as of December 31, 2019. The increase is mainly the result of the business combination with ARYA Sciences Acquisition Corporation completed in July 2020 (ARYA merger) and the concurrent PIPE Financing.
             
Revenue: Total revenue, consisting of revenue from collaboration agreements, was €31.3 million ($38.4 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to €18.4 million ($22.6 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Research and Development Expenses: R&D expenses were €67.1 million ($82.3 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to €40.1 million ($49.2 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase is mainly due to an increase in preclinical and clinical development expenses and an increase in share-based compensation (€14.5 million; $17.8 million1 for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to €1.6 million; $1.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2019).
             
General and Administrative Expenses: G&A expenses were €34.2 million ($42.0 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to €11.8 million ($14.5 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase is mainly due to an increase in share-based compensation (€10.9 million; $13.4 million1 for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to €0.5 million; $0.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2019) as well as one-time transaction costs of the NASDAQ listing in connection with the ARYA merger in July.
             
Net Loss: Net loss was €229.6 million ($281.7 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to €32.5 million ($39.9 million1) for the year ended December 31, 2019, of which €152.8 million ($187.5 million1) resulted from a one-time, non-cash expense in connection with the ARYA merger. The main part of this €152.8 million ($187.5 million1) non-cash expense resulted from the share price increase between signing and closing of the ARYA merger.
