“Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Ayala continues to operate from a position of strength both clinically and operationally. We remain on track to report additional data from our ongoing Phase 2 ACCURACY study in R/M ACC and to initiate our Phase 2 AL101 study of TNBC before year end,” said Roni Mamluk, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Ayala. “In addition, in May 2020, we completed our upsized IPO, providing us the financial stability to further develop both AL101 and AL102 across a wide range of genetically defined cancer indications, as well as in multiple myeloma in collaboration with Novartis.”

Key Business and Clinical Highlights

 

   

Completed Upsized Initial Public Offering: In May 2020, Ayala successfully completed its initial public offering (IPO) of 3,666,667 shares of common stock and additional 274,022 shares in connection with the partial exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares, at a public offering price of $15.00 per share. The total gross proceeds from the IPO were approximately $59.1 million. Through this offering Ayala broadened its shareholder base with a number of U.S. healthcare dedicated funds.

 

   

Received Fast Track Designation for AL101 for the Treatment of Recurrent/Metastatic Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (R/M ACC): In March 2020, Ayala received Fast Track designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for AL101 for the treatment of R/M ACC with Notch-activating mutations. Ayala’s lead product candidate, AL101 is a potent, selective, injectable small molecule gamma secretase inhibitor (GSI) and was granted Orphan Drug Designation in May 2019 for the treatment of R/M ACC.

 

   

Commenced Dosing of Patients in 6mg Cohort of R/M ACC Study: Ayala commenced dosing of the second patient cohort in its ACCURACY study for the treatment of R/M ACC with Notch-activating mutations at the higher dose of 6mg. In the first cohort of the study, 45 patients were dosed at 4mg where clear signs of clinical activity were observed along with a favorable safety profile. The study is expected to dose 42 patients in the 6mg cohort.

 

   

Investigational New Drug (IND) Accepted by FDA for Phase 2 Study of AL101 For Treatment of TNBC: In April 2020, the FDA accepted the IND for the Phase 2 study of AL101 for treatment of triple negative breast cancer (TNBC.)
