Tuebingen, Germany and Houston, TX, December 2, 2020 – Immatics N.V. (NASDAQ: IMTX; “Immatics”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company active in the discovery and development of T cell redirecting cancer immunotherapies, today reported financial results and provided a business update for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

“The third quarter was highlighted by meaningful progress in our ACTengine® IMA200 clinical trial series. Seven clinical sites in Germany and the US are now initiated and screening patients. These advancements mark critical steps towards delivering our clinical milestones for the coming year including reporting on initial data for ACTengine® patients in dose escalation in Q1,” said Harpreet Singh, Ph.D., CEO of Immatics. “In conjunction with our clinical and operational progress, we are pleased to further strengthen the Company’s capabilities with the appointments of both Eliot Forster to the Board and Arnd Christ as Chief Financial Officer.”

Third Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Company Progress

Adoptive Cell Therapy Programs

  • ACTengine® IMA200 Series – Immatics continued to select and initiate additional clinical trial sites in Germany and the US. The increased patient enrollment seen at sites in Germany was able to mitigate the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic at US sites. These patients are expected to be treated within the fourth quarter this year, moving Immatics towards delivering the clinical milestones for ACTengine® in the coming year. Combined initial data readout for ACTengine® programs, IMA201, IMA202 and IMA203, continues to be expected in Q1 2021. Reported initial data will focus on safety and pharmacodynamic data including engraftment level, persistence and molecular phenotype of infused T cells as well as clinical change of target tumor lesions.
  • ACTengine® IMA204 – Immatics presented preclinical data from the ACTengine® cell therapy program targeting the tumor microenvironment on September 10. IMA204 is directed at a novel target, COL6A3 exon 6, which is highly expressed in the tumor stroma of a variety of solid cancers. An affinity-enhanced TCR candidate directed to this target demonstrated full functionality in CD8+ and CD4+ T cells indicating that this TCR could be employed in a next-generation ACTengine® approach without the need of CD8 co-receptor transduction. Submission of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for IMA204 remains anticipated for 2021.
  • ACTolog® IMA101 – On November 10, Immatics presented topline data from its clinical pilot trial IMA101, a personalized multi-target ACT approach using the patient’s own, non-engineered T cells. The trial demonstrated feasibility and tolerability of this approach as well as very high persistence of endogenous T cells directed against defined pHLA targets. Clinical course observations in patients treated with T cells directed at the tumor stroma target COL6A3 exon 6 warrant further exploration of this target within ACTengine®. The results also support further development of a multi-target approach using multiple engineered TCRs simultaneously in ACTengine®.

          TCR Bispecifics Programs

  • IMA401 – A preclinical data update from Immatics’ first TCR Bispecifics (TCER™) program on October 29, delivered pre-clinical proof-of-concept for IMA401 demonstrating complete remission of transplanted human tumors in mice as well as favorable CMC characteristics. The IMA401 cancer target, an HLA-A*02-bound peptide derived from both MAGEA4 and MAGEA8, showed more than 5-fold higher target copy numbers per tumor cell than a commonly used target peptide derived from MAGEA4. Submission of the IMA401 IND/IMPD application remains expected by the end of 2021.

Corporate Development

Management and Board of Directors Updates

  • Eliot Forster, Ph.D., joined Immatics’ Board of Directors as a new member in September 2020. He brings to Immatics extensive experience, including leadership of trailblazing biopharmaceutical companies in the field of immuno-oncology as well as other therapeutic areas.
  • In October 2020, Arnd Christ joined Immatics’ leadership team as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). He was previously the CFO of Nasdaq-listed InflaRx and brings nearly two decades of experience serving as the CFO of both private and public biotechnology companies.

                                   Collaborations and Strategic Alliances

  • On August 6, Immatics announced the extension of its strategic alliance with UTHealth. The continued collaboration will provide Immatics exclusive access to three cGMP suites enabling manufacturing and supply of its ACT products for current and upcoming Phase 1 clinical trials in the US and Europe for an additional four years until end of 2024.

  

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Cash Position: Cash and cash equivalents as well as other financial assets sum up to €259.3 million ($303.6 million1) as of September 30, 2020 compared to €86.1 million ($100.8 million1) as of June 30. The increase is mainly due to 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 €7.8 million ($9.1 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to €5.1 million ($6.0 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Research and Development Expenses: R&D expenses were €17.5 million ($20.5 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to €10.2 million ($11.9 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase is mainly due to increased share-based compensation (€4.6 million; $5.4 million1).

General and Administrative Expenses: G&A expenses were €9.2 million ($10.8 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to €2.7 million ($3.2 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase is mainly due to increased share-based compensation (€3.6 million; $4.2 million1) as well as one-time transaction costs of the NASDAQ listing in connection with the ARYA merger in July.

Net Loss: Net loss was €177.1 million ($207.3 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to €5.0 million ($5.9 million1) for the three months ended September 30, 2019 of which €152.8 million ($178.9 million1) resulted from a one-time, non-cash expense in connection with the ARYA merger. The main part of this €152.8 million ($178.9 million1) non-cash expense resulted from the share price increase between signing and closing of the ARYA merger.
