CAMBRIDGE, Mass., January 13, 2020 — Infinity Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: INFI) today announced 2020 milestones for IPI-549, a first-in-class, oral, immuno-oncology product candidate targeting immune-suppressive tumor-associated myeloid cells through selective phosphoinositide-3-kinase-gamma (PI3K-gamma) inhibition and provided financial guidance for 2020.

“Our recently announced non-dilutive financing with BVF Partners has provided Infinity with the financial resources to fully fund all of our ongoing IPI-549 trials to key data readouts throughout 2020 and into 2H 2021,” stated Adelene Perkins, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of Infinity Pharmaceuticals. “2020 will be a very exciting and important year for Infinity as we continue our efforts to expand the development of IPI-549 across earlier lines of therapy and broader indications, leveraging a safety profile that enables innovative combination therapy approaches. We continue to see growing recognition of the importance of MDSC-directed and tumor macrophage-directed immuno-oncology therapies among the medical and scientific communities, and we are well positioned to solidify our leadership in the field with expected clinical and translational data from IPI-549 studies in 2020 to mid-2021.”


Infinity’s Chair and Chief Executive Officer, Adelene Perkins, will discuss the company’s continued execution on its corporate strategy and 2020 priorities as part of a podium presentation at the 38th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference on January 16th, 2020 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.

$20 million non-dilutive asset-backed financing with BVF Partners L.P. with sole recourse in potential royalty payments due on future sales of patidegib, a hedgehog pathway inhibitor discovered by Infinity and licensed to PellePharm in 2013. Infinity is eligible to receive from BVF an additional $5 million payment upon positive data from PellePharm’s Phase 3 trial in patients with Gorlin Syndrome.

 

   

Over $60 million cash on hand to fund all current IPI-549 trials to key data readouts throughout 2020 and into mid-2021.

2020 IPI-549 Development Guidance

 

   

MARIO-275 enrollment completion. MARIO-275 is the company’s ongoing global, randomized, controlled Phase 2 study in collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb, to evaluate IPI-549 in combination with Opdivo® in platinum-refractory, I/O naïve patients with advanced urothelial cancer. Data is expected in mid-2021.

 

   

MARIO-3 enrollment completion and initial data. MARIO-3 is the company’s ongoing Phase 2 study in collaboration with Roche/Genentech to evaluate IPI-549 in novel triple combination front-line therapies with Tecentriq® and Abraxane® in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) and with Tecentriq and Avastin® in renal cell cancer (RCC).

 

   

Arcus Biosciences Collaboration Study expansion cohort enrolling. This ongoing Phase 1/1b trial, being conducted by Arcus, is evaluating a checkpoint inhibitor-free, novel triple-combination regimen of IPI-549 + AB928 (dual adenosine receptor antagonist) + Doxil® in advanced TNBC patients. The trial has been initiated with a goal of enrollment of up to 40 patients in an expansion cohort.

 

   

Additional MARIO-1 data. MARIO-1 is the company’s ongoing Phase 1/1b study of IPI-549 as a monotherapy and in combination with Opdivo® in patients with advanced solid tumors.


2020 Financial Guidance

Infinity ended 2019 with approximately $42.4 million in cash and investments (unaudited) and plans to report its fourth quarter and full-year 2019 financial results in March. The company is providing the following financial guidance today:

 

   

Cash as of January 8, 2020: ~$62 million (including $20 million non-dilutive financing)

 

   

Net Loss: $40 million to $50 million

 

   

Year-end Cash: $15 million to $25 million

 

   

Cash Runway: Into 2H 2021

Infinity’s 2020 financial guidance is based on its current operating plans, excludes additional financing or business development activities, and excludes a potential $5 million milestone payment from BVF for positive Phase 3 patidegib data and any milestones from, or the sale of the company’s equity interest in, PellePharm.

About Infinity and IPI-549

Infinity is an innovative biopharmaceutical company dedicated to advancing novel medicines for people with cancer. Infinity is advancing IPI-549, a first-in-class, oral immuno-oncology development candidate that selectively inhibits PI3K-gamma, in multiple clinical studies. MARIO-275 is a global, randomized, controlled combination study of IPI-549 combined with Opdivo in I/O naïve urothelial cancer patients for which enrollment is expected to be completed in 2020 with data by mid-2021. MARIO-3 is the first IPI-549 combination study in front-line advanced cancer patients and is evaluating IPI-549 in combination with Tecentriq and Abraxane in front-line TNBC and in combination with Tecentriq and Avastin in front-line RCC and is also expected to complete enrollment in 2020 with initial data expected in 2020. In collaboration with Arcus Biosciences, Infinity is evaluating a checkpoint inhibitor-free, novel combination regimen of IPI-549 plus AB928 (dual adenosine receptor antagonist) plus Doxil in advanced TNBC patients. In 2019 Infinity completed enrollment in MARIO-1, a Phase 1/1b study evaluating IPI-549 as a monotherapy and in combination with Opdivo (nivolumab) in patients with advanced solid tumors including patients refractory to checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Data presented from MARIO-1 to date show that IPI-549 has activity and leads to a reduction in the number of circulating myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) as both a monotherapy and in combination with Opdivo and additional data is expected in 2020. With these studies Infinity is evaluating IPI-549 in the anti-PD-1 refractory, I/O-naïve, and front-line settings.
