Timber Pharmaceuticals Provides Business Update and Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

BASKING RIDGE, NJ, Aug. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Timber Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Timber" or the “Company”) (NYSE American: TMBR), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of treatments for rare and orphan dermatologic diseases, today provided a business update and announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

John Koconis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Timber, commented, “In the second quarter Timber’s core programs for rare and orphan dermatologic diseases all continued to progress.

  • During the quarter Timber announced that as of May 31st, the Phase 2b CONTROL Study of Congenital Ichthyosis for lead asset, TMB-001, had completed recruitment at all of its sites with 34 patients randomized. Timber expects to announce top line results from the Phase 2b CONTROL study in the fourth quarter of 2021 and is planning for an end-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA by the end of the year.
  • In June Timber confirmed that all 17 sites were open for the Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating TMB-002 (topical rapamycin) for the treatment of facial angiofibromas (FAs) in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and that the 50% recruitment point had been passed. Recruitment is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2021 and, as per protocol, data is expected six months from the date that the last patient was enrolled.
  • In April Timber announced that the Japanese Patent Office had decided to grant a patent (No. 2018542677) for TMB-001. In May, the Company received notice that the Australian Patent Office had decided to grant a patent (No. 2016346203) for TMB-001 as well. TMB-001 has also been issued patents in the U.S. and has additional patent applications pending in other markets around the world.
  • Timber recognized revenue of $388,819 in the second quarter, consisting of reimbursements received from the FDA as a result of achieving certain clinical milestones in the development of TMB-001, partof a $1.5 million grant from the Orphan Products Clinical Trials Grants Program of the FDA’s Office of Orphan Products Development, and from a TMB-002 milestone for a licensing agreement with AFT.
  • Timber ended the second quarter with $6.1 million in cash and common shares outstanding of 36.7 million at June 30, 2021.

“The Timber team has persevered through the headwinds of the global pandemic to reach the clinical milestones we’ve achieved thus far as well as those we expect to achieve over the next nine months.  We anticipate the end of recruitment in the TMB-002 Phase 2b trial at the end of the third quarter and reporting data for the TMB-001 Phase 2b CONTROL trial early in the fourth quarter,” concluded Mr. Koconis.
