CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2022-- Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: INFI) (“Infinity” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing eganelisib, a first-in-class, oral, immuno-oncology macrophage reprogramming therapeutic, today announced its third quarter 2022 financial results, provided a business update, and in a separate press release provided more mature data from the Phase 2 MARIO-3 1L TNBC clinical trial.

“Our top priority is entering into a strategic partnership to advance eganelisib development and pave the way to eventual approval. Current business development discussions are directed towards an initial, focused development plan in a randomized controlled setting. It is our goal to announce a partnership, and the focus of the next clinical study for eganelisib, in the first quarter of 2023,” said Adelene Perkins, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of Infinity. “We are encouraged by the long-term benefit seen in front-line TNBC patients reported earlier today from MARIO-3. These data are consistent with the long-term benefit seen in other indications in which eganelisib has been studied, giving us multiple potential paths forward to be prioritized with a prospective partner.”

MARIO-3 Clinical Update:

The Company reported today an update from its MARIO-3 study of eganelisib in combination with atezolizumab and nab-paclitaxel in front-line metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients: (Press release here)

  • Encouraging one-year progression free survival rates in MARIO-3 1L TNBC study regardless of PD-L1 status
  • 52% increase in one-year progression free survival rate in ITT patient population compared to IMpassion130 benchmark
  • No new safety signals were observed during the extended period on treatment, and the MARIO-3 safety profile continued to be consistent with expectations for the three component drugs.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results:

  • At September 30, 2022, Infinity had total cash and cash equivalents of $47.2 million, compared to $80.7 million at December 31, 2021.
  • Research and development expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $7.7 million, compared to $7.1 million in the same period in 2021. The increase is primarily related to higher compensation expense due to additional staff to support the future development of eganelisib.
  • General and administrative expenses were $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $3.8 million in the same period in 2021. The decrease is primarily related to a decrease in professional services.
  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $10.7 million, or a basic and diluted loss per common share of $0.12, compared to a net loss of $10.7 million, or a basic and diluted loss per common share of $0.12 in the same period in 2021.

2022 Financial Outlook:

Infinity’s 2022 financial guidance remains as follows:

  • Net Loss: Infinity continues to expect net loss for 2022 to range from $40 million to $50 million.
  • Cash and Investments: Infinity continues to expect to end 2022 with a cash and cash equivalents balance ranging from $35 million to $45 million, which provides a cash runway into 2024. Infinity’s financial guidance does not include additional funding or business development activities even as we move toward a strategic partnership on eganelisib which is our goal to announce in the first quarter of 2023.
