BiondVax Reports Second Quarter Financial Results and Provides Business Update

JERUSALEM, Aug. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via IBN - BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (Nasdaq: BVXV), a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing, and commercializing innovative immunotherapeutic products primarily for the treatment of infectious and autoimmune diseases, announced the publication today of its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023, and provided a business update.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Summary

  • R&D expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2023, amounted to $1.45 million compared with $1.97 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
  • Marketing, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2023, amounted to $1.14 million compared with $1.29 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
  • Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2023, amounted to $2.56 million compared with $3.26 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
  • Financial (loss) income for the three months ended June 30, 2023, amounted to $1.16 million loss compared with $0.28 million income for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
  • Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2023, amounted to $3.76 million compared with $2.98 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

As of June 30, 2023, BiondVax had cash and cash equivalents of $7.6 million as compared to $14.2 million as of December 31, 2022. In the six months ended June 30, 2023, BiondVax had an operating loss of $7.3 million and negative cash flows from operating activities of $5.9 million. BiondVax’s current operating budget includes various assumptions concerning the level and timing of cash receipts and cash outlays for operating expenses and capital expenditures, including a cost-savings plan. BiondVax is planning to finance its operations from its existing working capital resources and additional sources of capital and financing with respect to which the Company has initiated actions. However, there is no assurance that additional capital and/or financing will be available to BiondVax, and even if available, whether it will be on terms acceptable to BiondVax or in amounts required. Accordingly, BiondVax’s board of directors approved the cost-savings plan mentioned above, to be implemented if and as required, in whole or in part, at its discretion, to allow BiondVax to continue its operations and meet its cash obligations. The cost-savings plan consists of cutting expenditures by means of further efficiencies and synergies, which include mainly the reduction in headcount and postponing or cancelling capital expenditures that would not be required for the implementation of the revised business plan. BiondVax’s Board of Directors believes that BiondVax’s existing financial resources, potential successful capital raisings and its current operating plans (including the possible disposition of assets outside the ordinary course of business) and restructuring of debt, along with the effects of the cost-savings plan, may be adequate to satisfy its expected liquidity requirements for a period of at least twelve months from the date hereof, although there is no guarantee.

BiondVax’s unaudited financial results will be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 6‑K. A summary of such results is included in the tables below.

Business Update

  • CDMO:
    • As announced previously, BiondVax has decided to leverage its aseptic manufacturing site and laboratories by creating a CDMO business unit in parallel to its innovative R&D business unit. The CDMO business unit offers biological drug development services with a focus on preclinical and small clinical stage biopharmaceutical companies. These companies tend to have limited capital and require cost effective drug development services that can be executed in very short timelines. These companies also typically lack the resources required to build their own laboratories and production lines for biological drug development. They also often encounter challenges working with large CDMOs due to the relatively high costs, long timelines and lack of agility in their processes. To overcome these challenges, preclinical and small clinical stage companies may outsource product development to a boutique CDMO such as the one owned by BiondVax. In particular, BiondVax’s CDMO business unit allows clients to leverage BiondVax’s expertise in process development, optimization, scale-up, GMP manufacturing for clinical trials, and navigating complex regulatory frameworks.

  • Pipeline Development:
    • In June 2023, BiondVax signed an exclusive license agreement with Max Planck Innovation for development and commercialization of a novel anti-IL-17 NanoAb (VHH antibody) for treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases including psoriasis. We are aggressively advancing the NanoAb preclinical development and expect the IL-17 NanoAb to enter clinical testing in 2024.
    • BiondVax is pursuing a strategic partnership for its COVID-19 self-administered inhaled NanoAb therapeutic/prophylactic which demonstrated highly promising in vivo results in animals.
    • NanoAbs for treatment of additional autoimmune diseases such as asthma and wet AMD are being developed at Max Planck and University Medical Center Göttingen as part of their research collaboration agreement with BiondVax. BiondVax holds exclusive options for exclusive licenses at pre agreed financial terms for each of the resulting NanoAbs.
