Projected Cash Runway into the First Quarter of 2022

Borrowed $11 Million from Term Loan Facility

Wayne, PA – May 7, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –

Aclaris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACRS), a physician-led biopharmaceutical company focused on immuno-inflammatory diseases, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2020 and provided research and development (R&D) and business highlights.

“In the first quarter, we borrowed $11 million from Silicon Valley Bank enabling us to extend our cash runway, and started enrolling subjects with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis in our Phase 2a trial of ATI-450.  As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and as a precautionary measure, we temporarily paused subject enrollment in this trial. At this time, we have decided to resume enrollment at one clinical trial site. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and engage additional clinical trial sites, as appropriate, based on our assessment of the impact on our trial. I’m proud of our team’s focus, dedication and resilience while navigating through the unique challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has created,” said Dr. Neal Walker, President and CEO of Aclaris.

R&D Highlights:

The global outbreak of COVID-19 continues to rapidly evolve and has caused and may continue to cause Aclaris to experience disruptions that could impact the timing of its regulatory and research and development activities listed below.

ATI-450:
oATI-450 is an investigational oral small molecule MK2 inhibitor.
oATI-450-RA-201: A Phase 2a trial to investigate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ATI-450 in subjects with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis.
Aclaris started subject enrollment in the first quarter of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Aclaris temporarily paused enrollment of subjects in the trial. At this time, Aclaris has decided to resume enrolling subjects at one clinical trial site.
