Relay Therapeutics Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Relay Therapeutics, Inc.
·6 min read

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Relay Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RLAY), a clinical-stage precision medicine company transforming the drug discovery process by leveraging unparalleled insights into protein motion, today reported third quarter 2020 financial results.

“In our first quarter as a public company, I am proud of our team’s unwavering focus on bringing our medicines to patients,” said Sanjiv Patel, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Relay Therapeutics. “In July, we completed and closed our initial public offering. In September, we dosed the first patient with our second targeted medicine, RLY-4008, the only selective small molecule inhibitor of FGFR2 in clinical development. We look forward to providing updates across our pipeline in 2021.”

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled approximately $713 million as of September 30, 2020, which includes the net proceeds of $425 million from the Company’s initial public offering, compared to $356 million as of December 31, 2019. The Company expects its current cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund its current operating plan into 2023.

R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were $24 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $18 million for the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to higher personnel costs, including an increase of $4.6 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expenses related to the accounting treatment of certain options granted in the first quarter of 2020, as well as an increase in costs to support our clinical trials, offset in part by a decrease in outside and consulting services for our pre-clinical candidates.

G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were $12 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $4 million for the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to higher personnel costs, including an increase of $6.0 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expenses related to the accounting treatment of certain options granted in the first quarter of 2020, to support our infrastructure.

Net Loss: Net loss was $36 million for the third quarter of 2020, or a net loss per share of $3.00, as compared to a net loss of $20 million for the third quarter of 2019, or a net loss per share of $5.53.
