Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), a clinical stage ophthalmic biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of microdose therapeutics utilizing its patented piezo-print delivery technology, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Q1 2019 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Presented positive results from the MicroStat Phase III MIST-1 and MIST-2 registration studies for pharmacologic mydriasis at the joint American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators (ASOA) annual meeting;
  • Received U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acceptance of our investigational new drug (IND) application to initiate the MicroPine Phase III CHAPERONE registration study aimed at reducing the progression of myopia in children; and
  • Expanded the MicroProst Phase III program to include chronic angle closure glaucoma (CACG), open angle glaucoma (OAG), and ocular hypertension (OHT) patients in a single registration study.

“We kicked-off 2019 with a number of successes that further validate our novel approach in ophthalmology that we believe will help us advance multiple programs towards Phase III initiations this year,” commented Dr. Sean Ianchulev, Eyenovia’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer. “The positive MicroStat Phase III results which we presented at the ASCRS annual meeting confirmed that we can deliver drugs to the eye with high precision and efficacy using our microdosing technology. These results also help validate our delivery platform as we work diligently towards the initiation of our MicroPine and MicroProst Phase III programs, in which we expect to begin enrolling patients towards the middle and end of 2019, respectively. We are committed to advancing our clinical initiatives, including the preparation of the necessary registration and stability manufacturing materials for the submission of our first New Drug Application for MicroStat in 2020. We look forward to making 2019 another successful year as we seek to transform the treatment paradigm of front and back-of-the-eye diseases.”

For the first quarter of 2019, net loss was approximately $5.9 million, or $(0.50) per share, compared to a net loss of approximately $3.4 million, or $(0.45) per share for the first quarter of 2018.

About EyenoviaEyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN) is a clinical stage ophthalmic biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of microdose therapeutics utilizing its patented piezo-print delivery technology. Eyenovia’s pipeline is currently focused on the late-stage development of microdosed medications for mydriasis, myopia progression, glaucoma, and other eye diseases. For more Information please visit www.eyenovia.com.

About MicroStat for MydriasisMicroStat is Eyenovia's first-in-class fixed-combination micro-formulation product (phenylephrine 2.5% -tropicamide 1%) candidate for pharmacologic mydriasis (eye dilation) which is targeted to address the growing needs of the estimated 80 million office-based comprehensive and diabetic eye exams performed every year in the United States, as well as the estimated 4 million pharmacologic mydriasis applications for cataract surgery. We are developing MicroStat to improve the efficacy and tolerability of pharmacologic mydriasis.

Upcoming Milestone: NDA Filing 2020

About MicroPine for Progressive MyopiaMicroPine is Eyenovia's first-in-class topical treatment for progressive myopia, a back-of-the-eye disease. Progressive myopia is estimated to affect close to 5 million patients in the United States who suffer from uncontrolled axial elongation of the sclera leading to increasing levels of myopia and in some cases major pathologic changes such as retinal atrophy, macular staphylomas, retinal detachment and visual impairment. Early dose finding studies by collaborative academic groups have demonstrated high therapeutic potential with low dose atropine which can reduce myopia progression by 60 – 70% with a sustained effect through three years. A recent therapeutic evidence assessment and review by the American Academy of Ophthalmology indicates Level 1 (highest) evidence of efficacy for the role of low dose atropine for progressive myopia (Ophthalmology 2017;124:1857-1866; Ophthalmology 2016; 123(2) 391:399).

Feasibility Dose-finding Atropine Studies: ATOM 1; ATOM 2; LAMP (Independent Collaborative Group Trials) Upcoming Milestone: MicroPine Phase III Trial Start Mid-2019

About MicroProst for Glaucoma and Ocular HypertensionMicroProst is Eyenovia's proprietary latanoprost formulation product candidate, which is being developed as a first-line treatment for the reduction of IOP in patients with Chronic Angle Closure Glaucoma (CACG), as well as Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) and Ocular Hypertension. Currently, there are no FDA-approved therapies specifically indicated for CACG, which accounts for an estimated 10% and 50% of all glaucoma diagnoses in the United States and China, respectively. We believe there are approximately 500,000 patients with CACG in the United States and approximately 3.0 million with POAG for whom chronic, often life-long medication therapy is required. Feasibility Dose-Finding Studies: MicroProst Phase II EYN PG21Upcoming Milestone: MicroProst Phase III Trial Start End of 2019

About MicroTears OTC for Hyperemia, Pruritis and Dry EyeMicroTears is a micro-droplet ocular hyperemia (red eye), pruritis (itch) and ocular lubrication product candidate for the approximately $850 million annual OTC artificial tear market in the United States.

Upcoming Milestone: OTC Monograph Registration 2019

About Optejet™ and MicroRx Ocular TherapeuticsEyenovia's Optejet microdose formulation and delivery platform for ocular therapeutics uses high-precision piezo-print technology to deliver 6-8 μL of drug, consistent with the capacity of the tear film of the eye. We believe the volume of ophthalmic solution administered with the Optejet is less than 75% of that delivered using conventional eyedroppers, thus reducing overdosing and exposure to drug and preservatives. Eyenovia's patented microfluidic ejection technology is designed for fast and gentle ocular surface delivery, where solution is dispensed to the ocular surface in approximately 80 milliseconds, beating the ocular blink reflex. Successful use of the Optejet has been demonstrated with minimal training in 85% of topical medication administrations compared to 40 – 50% with conventional eyedroppers. Additionally, its smart electronics and mobile e-health technology are designed to track and enhance patient compliance.
