    AGTC Announces Financial Results and Business Update for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2020

    - Company on track to provide multiple data readouts for XLRP and ACHM clinical programs in 2021 and 2022 - - Net proceeds of approximately $69.2 million from a recent public offering provide cash runway into calendar year 2023 - - Company to host conference call and webcast today at 8:00 a.m. ET - GAINESVILLE, Fla. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Genetic Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: AGTC), a biotechnology company conducting human clinical trials of adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based gene therapies for the treatment of rare diseases, today announced financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. “We believe that the data generated to date in our XLRP trials continue to give us a leading position in this indication and we are eager to move our Phase 1/2 expansion (Skyline) and Phase 2/3 (Vista) trials forward,” said Sue Washer, President and CEO of AGTC. “The latest data from our ongoing Phase 1/2 trials in patients with achromatopsia provide the first reported quantitative evidence of improvements in visual sensitivity and provide a path forward to collect additional data and to fully realize the potential of this treatment. Continued progress in our clinical and earlier-stage development efforts is expected to create multiple data milestones, including four important data releases for XLRP and two for achromatopsia over the next two years, while bringing us closer to our goal of developing best-in-class therapies that provide meaningful benefit to patients.” X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP)In November 2020, the Company reported additional positive data from its Phase 1/2 clinical trial in patients with XLRP that indicated durable improvements observed in visual sensitivity and supportive trends in visual acuity over a wide dose range with a favorable safety profile out to month 12 in two of the dose groups. The Company believes it has a best-in-class product candidate that may provide significant benefit to patients with XLRP. The Company expects to: Provide 12-month data for Phase 1/2 dose groups 5 and 6 in 2Q 2021;Provide Skyline trial results from the 3-month masked interim analysis in 4Q 2021;Provide Skyline trial results from the 12-month data in 3Q 2022; andProvide Vista trial results from the 6-month masked interim analysis in 3Q 2022. Achromatopsia (ACHM)In January 2021, the Company announced the first reported quantitative evidence of improvement in visual sensitivity, as measured by full field static perimetry, supported in some patients by other endpoints. Seven of the 16 patients in the three highest dose groups in the ACHMB3 trial showed these improvements in visual sensitivity in the treated area. No consistent results were seen in the other dose groups. In a subset of these patients with evaluable multi-focal electroretinograms (mfERG), improvements in electrical signaling were measurable in the same treated area. For ACHMA3, of the 16 patients in the four highest dose groups, three patients showed improvements in visual sensitivity in the treated area, as measured by static perimetry. No consistent results were seen in other dose groups. None of these three patients with improvements in visual sensitivity had evaluable mfERGs. AGTC currently plans to focus on completing enrollment of pediatric patients in the two highest dose groups in its ACHMB3 and ACHMA3 trials and to follow all patients through 12 months. The Company expects to: Provide 12-month data from the adult patients in both trials in 2Q 2021; andProvide preliminary 3-month data from the pediatric patients in both trials in 4Q 2021, AGTC currently plans to focus on completing enrollment depending on any effects of the COVID pandemic. Financial Results for the Three and Six Months Ended December 31, 2020 Revenue: There was no revenue for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $2.5 million in each of the comparable 2019 periods. Revenue during the three and six months ended December 31, 2019 was primarily due to $2.2 million of non-cash collaboration revenue in connection with in-kind contributions made to Bionic Sight, LLC pursuant to a collaborative agreement. R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 were $11.8 million and $23.4 million, respectively, compared to $8.4 million and $17.0 million, respectively, during the comparable 2019 periods. The increase of $6.4 million during the 2020 six-month period was primarily due to increased external XLRP spending for planned manufacturing, clinical site preparation and other activities related to the Skyline and Vista trials, partially offset by decreased external ACHM spending. G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 were $3.3 million and $6.7 million, respectively, compared to $3.0 million and $6.4 million, respectively, during the comparable 2019 periods. The increase of $0.3 million during the 2020 six-month period was primarily due to higher fees from outside legal counsel, partially offset by lower employee-related expenses and share-based compensation expense. Investment Income, net: Investment income, net for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 declined by $0.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively, when compared to the comparable 2019 periods, which was primarily due to lower interest rates in the marketplace. Interest Expense: Interest expense for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 increased by $0.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively, when compared to the comparable 2019 periods due to the loan agreement that the Company entered into on June 30, 2020. Net Loss: The Company’s net loss for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 was $15.5 million and $30.8 million, respectively, compared to $8.6 million and $20.2 million, respectively, during the comparable 2019 periods. Financial Guidance: As of December 31, 2020, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $53.1 million. The Company believes that these funds, along with net proceeds of approximately $69.2 million from an underwritten public offering that closed in February 2021, will be sufficient to allow the Company to generate data from its ongoing and planned clinical programs and fund currently planned research and discovery programs into calendar year 2023.

AGTC is advancing multiple important pipeline candidates to address substantial unmet clinical need in optogenetics, otology and CNS disorders. About XLRPXLRP is an inherited condition that causes progressive vision loss in boys and young men. Characteristics of the disease include night blindness in early childhood and progressive constriction of the visual field. In general, XLRP patients experience a gradual decline in visual acuity over the disease course, which results in legal blindness around the 4th or 5th decade of life. AGTC was granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) orphan drug designation in 2017, as well as European Commission orphan medicinal product designation in 2016, for its gene therapy product candidate to treat XLRP caused by mutations in the RPGR gene. About ACHMACHM is an inherited retinal disease, which is present from birth and is characterized by the lack of cone photoreceptor function. The condition results in markedly reduced visual acuity, extreme light sensitivity causing day blindness, and complete loss of color discrimination. Best-corrected visual acuity in persons affected by ACHM, even under subdued light conditions, is usually about 20/200, a level at which people are considered legally blind.
