·9 min read

ATLANTA, April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inhibikase Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: IKT), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics to modify the course of Parkinson's disease (PD) and related disorders inside and outside of the brain, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020 and highlighted recent developments.

Key Business and Clinical Highlights

  • Completed Initial Public Offering: In December 2020, Inhibikase successfully completed its initial public offering (IPO) of 1,800,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $10.00 per share. The Company received aggregate net proceeds of approximately $14.60 million after deducting offering costs, underwriting discounts and commissions.

  • Commenced Dosing of Patients in Phase 1 Study of IkT-148009 for the treatment of PD and associated GI Disorders: In February 2021, Inhibikase commenced patient dosing in older and elderly healthy volunteers in a Phase 1 randomized single ascending dose and multiple ascending dose study to determine the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of IkT-148009. IkT-148009 is a novel brain penetrant Abelson tyrosine kinase, or c-Abl, inhibitor intended to be used to modify Parkinson's disease and its gastrointestinal complications.

  • Accelerated timelines for completion of the Phase 1 trial and initiation of dosing in PD patients. Early data from this study have led to a reduction in the timelines for completion of the study by 6 or more months, providing the opportunity to obtain regulatory approval to commence dosing of PD patients much earlier than previously anticipated.

  • Commenced chronic toxicology studies of IkT-148009 to permit long-term dosing in patients. In January, 2021 Inhibikase commenced 3 month and 6 month long-term toxicology studies of IkT-148009 in rats and 3 month and 9 month long-term toxicology studies of IkT-148009 in monkeys as required to obtain regulatory approval for chronic administration of IkT-148009 in patients. These studies are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • Commenced clinical batch manufacturing and pill formulation of IkT-001Pro in preparation for an Investigational New Drug application filing in the second quarter of 2021. In February, 2021 Inhibikase commenced clinical batch manufacturing and final product formulation of IkT-001Pro as a film-coated tablet in preparation for regulatory filing with the Food and Drug Administration to initiate clinical development. This regulatory filing is anticipated to be completed near the end of the second quarter of 2021, with initiation of clinical development 30 days after the filing, subject to FDA agreement and issuance of a Study May Proceed notification.

"2020 was a transformative year for Inhibikase, as we successfully completed our IPO and worked diligently to advance our novel programs to treat neurodegenerative diseases towards the clinic," commented Milton Werner, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Inhibikase. "Just recently, we were pleased to announce the advancement of our lead candidate, IkT-148009, into a Phase 1 dose escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics in elderly volunteers. Early data from this study has been encouraging and we are shortening the timeline to completion by six or more months, with an expectation to move into early patient studies this year. We believe that IKT-148009 could be a transformative therapy for millions of Parkinson's patients worldwide. Simultaneously, we have advanced our oncology clinical candidate, IkT-001Pro, into manufacturing and expect to initiate clinical development early in the third quarter. Our highly dedicated team has exceeded all of our internal expectations to move these clinical programs forward for the benefit of patients."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Review

Net Loss: Net loss for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020, was $1.21 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.43 million, or $0.05 per share for the fourth quarter 2019. For the full year ended December 31, 2020, net loss was $2.85 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.72 million, or $0.70 per share, for the same period in 2019.

R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $0.23 million for the fourth quarter 2020, compared to $0.27 million for the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, research and development expenses were $0.89 million, compared to $2.55 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in grant related research expenditures and non-grant related research.

SG&A Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter 2020 were $1.14 million compared to $0.39 million for the fourth quarter 2019. For the full year 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses were $2.62 million, compared to $4.27 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily related to a non-recurring 2019 charge of $1.59 million of deferred IPO costs in connection with the 2018 abandoned IPO effort plus net decrease in all other selling, general and administrative expenses of $0.06 million.

Cash Position: Cash and cash equivalents were $13.95 million as of December 31, 2020.
