5/6, 10:01 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

NEW YORK, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Y-mAbs Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company” or “Y-mAbs”) (Nasdaq: YMAB) a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, antibody-based therapeutic products for the treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021.

“We are very pleased with our first quarter 2021 financial results, as we have been commercializing DANYELZA® (naxitamab-gqgk) throughout the U.S. since the beginning of February and we are very pleased with our progress to date. In addition, we successfully completed a follow-on offering with gross proceeds of approximately $115 million and netted another $62 million from closing the sale of our Priority Review Voucher, after sharing the total sales price of $105 million with MSK pursuant to the terms of our license agreement. With a cash balance of $252 million, we believe we are well positioned to advance our pipeline in the coming years,” stated Thomas Gad, founder, Chairman and President.

Dr. Claus Moller, Chief Executive Officer, continued, “We successfully submitted the European Marketing Authorization Application for omburtamab to the European Medicines Agency (“EMA”) in April. In parallel, we are making good progress in the clinic and have continued to advance the earlier stage programs in our pipeline, including GPA33-SADA, where we reported radioactivity uptake with a tumor to blood ratio of 122 in a mouse model. We are planning for the first SADA IND later this year and target an IND for GPA33-SADA in 2022.” 

Recent Corporate Developments

  • Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, on April 27, 2021, Y-mAbs announced the submission to EMA of a European Marketing Authorization Application for omburtamab for the treatment of pediatric patients with CNS/leptomeningeal metastasis from neuroblastoma.

  • Also subsequent to the end of the first quarter, on April 20, 2021, Y-mAbs announced a regulatory update for resubmission of the BLA for omburtamab, reconfirming our aim to resubmit the BLA late in the second quarter or in the third quarter 2021.

  • After the close of the first quarter, on April 12, 2021, Y-mAbs announced data from GPA33-SADA, which in a xenograft model of colorectal peritoneal carcinomatosis showed radioactivity uptake with a tumor to blood ratio of 122 measured 24 hours after injection. An IND for the GPA33-SADA is targeted for next year.

  • On February 22, 2021, Y-mAbs announced the closing of a follow-on shelf public offering, including the full exercise of the underwriters’ overallotment option, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $115.0 million.

Financial Results

Y-mAbs reported net income of $33.4 million, or $0.80 per basic share or $0.75 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to a net loss of $26.2 million, or ($0.66) per basic and diluted share, reported for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increased net income was caused by the DANYELZA revenues and the recording of the net proceeds from monetization of the DANYELZA Priority Review Voucher.

Revenues

Y-mAbs reported net revenues of $5.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 from the sales of DANYELZA. No revenues were reported for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Operating Expenses

Research and Development
Research and development expenses were $21.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $18.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $3.0 million. The increase in research and development expenses primarily reflects the following:

  • $2.0 million increase in outsourced manufacturing;
  • $2.5 million increase in personnel costs; and
  • $0.8 million increase in clinical trials.

These increases were partially offset by a $3.1 million decrease in outsourced research and supplies.

Selling, General, and Administration
Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $12.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $8.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $3.9 million. The increase in selling general and administrative expenses primarily reflects the following:

  • $3.3 million increase in personnel costs.

The Company had approximately $252.3 million in cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2021.
