vTv Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq:VTVT) today reported financial results for the first quarter that ended March 31, 2019, and provided an update on recent achievements and upcoming events.

“We continue to make significant progress with our operational plans and look forward to announcing in the second quarter results from part 1 of our phase 2 Simplici-T1 trial in patients with type 1 diabetes, and the initiation of a phase 2 clinical trial of azeliragon in patients with mild-Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and type 2 diabetes,” said Steve Holcombe, chief executive officer, vTv Therapeutics.

Recent Achievements and Outlook

  • Simplici-T1 Study enrolling patients with type 1 diabetes. We completed enrollment of part 1 of the phase 2 Simplici-T1 Study, a 12-week study to evaluate TTP399 as an add-on to insulin therapy for patients with type 1 diabetes, and expect to report results in June 2019. We also began screening patients in the part 2 confirmatory phase 2 and expect to report results for that portion of the study in the latter part of the first quarter of 2020. In the previous AGATA Study, a phase 2 study in type 2 diabetes patients, TTP399 demonstrated statistically significant reductions in HbA1c levels. Importantly, TTP399 has been well tolerated in all clinical studies to date with negligible incidences of hypoglycemia and hyperlipidemia and no occurrences of ketoacidosis.
  • Screening for Phase 2 clinical trial of azeliragon expected to begin in June 2019. We are performing start-up activities for a clinical trial to evaluate azeliragon as a potential treatment of mild-AD in patients with type 2 diabetes that consists of sequential phase 2 and phase 3 studies operationally conducted under a single clinical trial protocol. The phase 2 study is designed to enroll approximately 100 patients to evaluate the impact of six months of treatment with azeliragon on cognitive performance as measured by the change from baseline in the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale – Cognitive Subscale (“ADAS-COG14”). We expect to begin screening patients in June 2019 for the phase 2 clinical trial and to report top-line results from the phase 2 study by the end of the fourth quarter of 2020. The phase 3 study is designed to enroll approximately 200 patients to evaluate the efficacy of 18 months of treatment with azeliragon on cognition and global function as measured by the change from baseline in the ADAS-COG14 and Clinical Dementia Rating Scale Sum of Boxes. The design of the phase 3 study may be adapted based on the results of the phase 2 study.
  • Publication of paper discussing the discovery and development of TTP399. In the first quarter, we announced the publication of a paper in Science Translational Medicine showcasing the discovery and development of TTP399. The paper reviewed the scientific rationale underpinning the development of TTP399 and detailed its progression from preclinical to clinical development.

These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would” and, in each case, their negative or other various or comparable terminology. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this release, including statements regarding the timing of our clinical trials, our strategy, future operations, future financial position, future revenue, projected costs, prospects, plans, objectives of management and expected market growth are forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our results to vary from expectations include those described under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the SEC. These forward-looking statements reflect our views with respect to future events as of the date of this release and are based on assumptions and subject to risks and uncertainties. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date of this release and, except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or review publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise after the date of this release.

Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, merger, dispositions, joint ventures or investments we may undertake. We qualify all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”), we use adjusted pro forma earnings per fully exchanged share, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted pro forma earnings per fully exchanged share is defined as net loss attributable to vTv Therapeutics Inc. common shareholders including the loss attributable to the non-controlling interest and assuming the exchange of all the Class B common stock of vTv Therapeutics Inc. and an equal number of non-voting common units of vTv Therapeutics LLC (“vTv Units”) for shares of Class A common stock of vTv Therapeutics Inc. Additionally, we have adjusted this metric for the non-cash deemed distributions that were made in connection with our letter agreements with MacAndrews & Forbes Group LLC. We believe that this measure provides useful information to investors as it eliminates the variability of non-controlling interest resulting from the exchanges of Class B common stock and vTv Units into Class A common stock and excludes the impact of the non-cash deemed distribution. This measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The following is a reconciliation of adjusted pro forma earnings per fully exchanged share, basic and diluted to its most directly comparable GAAP measure, net loss attributable to vTv Therapeutics Inc. common shareholders, basic and diluted and the computation of the components of this non-GAAP measure:
