Corporate Restructuring and Pipeline Focus Expected to Extend Cash Runway

Amendment to Term Loan to Provide Additional Interest-Only Period

LA JOLLA, Calif., August 9, 2018Regulus Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: RGLS), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of innovative medicines targeting microRNAs, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018 and provided a summary of recent events.

Second Quarter 2018 and Recent Updates

Corporate Updates

 

   

Corporate restructuring: In July 2018, the Company announced a corporate restructuring and workforce reduction of approximately 60% in order to focus its pipeline and extend its cash runway, the activities of which have been substantially completed. In connection with the restructuring, the Company expects to record net charges of approximately $0.8 million for employee severance and other related termination benefits. As a result of the restructuring, the Company’s annual cash burn is expected to be reduced by approximately 50% by year-end, inclusive of debt service costs.

Pipeline Updates

 

   

RGLS4326 for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD): As previously announced, due to unexpected observations in its 27-week mouse chronic toxicity study, and in consultation with FDA, the Company plans to initiate a new mouse chronic toxicity study with certain changes that are believed to address the unexpected observations. Importantly, RGLS4326 has been generally safe and well-tolerated in humans in the Phase 1 single ascending dose (SAD) and multiple ascending dose (MAD) studies to date. The Company has voluntarily paused dosing in the Phase 1 MAD study, pending results from the new chronic mouse toxicity study.

 

   

Advancement of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) Programs: The Company has determined that advancing its preclinical programs targeting HBV, which affects an estimated 350 million people worldwide, represents the most attractive investment opportunity in its preclinical pipeline. Regulus has identified multiple microRNA targets that serve as host factors for the virus. Targeting host factors with GalNAc-conjugated oligonucleotides directed to the liver represents a potentially attractive approach to treating the disease. Regulus and others have already demonstrated effective delivery to the liver with this technology, and Regulus has demonstrated human proof-of-concept (POC) with this approach previously with a program targeting the Hepatitis C virus. The Company currently expects to file an IND for the HBV program in H2 2019, with the potential of achieving human POC in a Phase 1 study.
