Third Quarter 2018 Corporate Highlights and Recent Updates

 

   

Amended and restructured its Collaboration and License Agreement with Sanofi: In November, Regulus and Sanofi agreed to restructure their Collaboration and License Agreement and immediately transfer development responsibilities of RG-012 for the treatment of Alport syndrome to Sanofi. Sanofi will assume all future costs and development activities associated with the advancement of RG-012, currently in Phase 2 for the treatment of Alport syndrome. Under the terms of the Amendment, Regulus is eligible to receive approximately $7 million in upfront and material transfer payments. Regulus is also eligible to receive up to $40 million in development milestone payments, including a $10 million payment for an interim enrollment milestone. In addition, Sanofi will reimburse Regulus for certain out-of-pocket expenses associated with transition activities and assume Regulus’ upstream license royalty obligations.

 

   

Initiated new chronic mouse toxicity study for RGLS4326; data anticipated in Q1 2019: In September 2018, and in consultation with the FDA, the Company initiated a new 27-week chronic mouse toxicity study for RGLS4326 for the treatment of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), incorporating several changes believed to address the unexpected findings in the earlier terminated chronic mouse toxicity study. This study is ongoing, and data are anticipated in Q1 2019. The Company anticipates the advancement of the RGLS4326 clinical program upon successful resolution of the unexpected findings.

 

   

Completed reverse stock split and regained compliance with NASDAQ listing requirements: In a special meeting of stockholders, held September 28, 2018, stockholders voted to approve a proposal authorizing the Board of Directors of the Company to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to affect a reverse stock split of Regulus’ outstanding common shares. Following the special meeting of stockholders, the Board of Directors approved a 1-for-12 reverse stock split. The Company’s shares began trading on a split-adjusted basis on October 4, 2018. On October 18, 2018, The Nasdaq Stock Market notified Regulus that it had regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market.

“The recently announced Sanofi restructuring represents a significant achievement for Regulus, bringing non-dilutive capital and eliminating future spend for this partnered program. Importantly, we are eligible to receive approximately $17 million in upfront and milestone payments anticipated over the next twelve months,” said Jay Hagan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regulus. “In July, we established several near-term key objectives, including reducing our cash burn, restructuring the Sanofi collaboration, advancing our prioritized pipeline, including ADPKD, and positioning other programs for business development opportunities. Regulus has made significant progress towards completing all of these objectives, and we look forward to the continued advancement of our ADPKD and HBV programs.”
