LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Aadi Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ: AADI), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing precision therapies for genetically defined cancers with alterations in mTOR pathway genes, today provided a corporate update and announced financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

"The last several months have been transformational for Aadi, most recently having strengthened our balance sheet with a $72.5 million PIPE financing. In addition, we saw continued progress in patient enrollment for the PRECISION 1 trial targeting TSC1 and TSC2 inactivating alterations, and we anticipate providing preliminary data on a meaningful number of patients from PRECISION 1 in the first half of 2023," said Neil Desai, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Aadi.  "We also expanded our pipeline through the recent clinical collaboration with Mirati to explore the combination of nab-sirolimus with the KRAS inhibitor adagrasib, which we believe could potentially overcome tumor resistance."

"We have made great progress in the last year, positioning us well for the next phase of growth. In preparation for the advancements to come, we are also realigning our management structure.  We announced last evening that I am moving into the role of Executive Chairman while our current COO, Brendan Delaney, will transition to President and CEO," continued Desai. "Brendan's proven expertise, committed leadership and broad strategic vision have been key drivers of our success. Going forward, Brendan will assume leadership of the Company while my personal focus will turn toward advancement of our scientific initiatives."

Brendan Delaney, current Chief Operating Officer of Aadi commented, "It's such an exciting time at Aadi, and I couldn't be more pleased with the execution our team has demonstrated.  I am honored to have been selected to lead this organization as we move forward and execute on the strategies that will support further growth.  Our oncology franchise is growing, and I believe we are well-positioned to achieve our goal of becoming a leading precision oncology company that delivers on providing therapeutic benefit to patients in need."

Corporate Updates for the Third Quarter 2022 and Recent Highlights

  • Closed on a $72.5M financing and extended cash runway into 2025. The proceeds from the financing will be used to support the continued advancement of the PRECISION 1 trial and growing FYARRO commercial efforts, and to fund research and development of additional clinical opportunities with FYARRO and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

  • Continued advancement of the PRECISION 1 registrational-directed trial. The PRECISION 1 Phase 2 trial in patients with tumor agnostic TSC 1 and 2 inactivating mutations is advancing and on track to deliver preliminary data in the first half of 2023.

  • Grew FYARRO net product sales. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, net product sales of FYARRO showed continued growth, ending with $4.2 million in sales in the third quarter, a 24% increase over the second quarter.

  • Leadership transition. Current CEO, Dr. Neil Desai, has been appointed Executive Chairman, effective January 1, 2023. Current COO, Brendan Delaney, will transition to President and CEO, and will be joining the board of directors, effective January 1, 2023.

  • Signed a clinical collaboration agreement with Mirati Therapeutics on combination of adagrasib with nab-sirolimus. The companies will conduct an open-label Phase 1/2 trial to determine the optimal dose and recommended Phase 2 dose for the combination of adagrasib and nab-sirolimus in patients with KRASG12C - mutant solid tumors. The trial builds on preclinical data showing enhanced anti-tumor efficacy with the combination of adagrasib and nab-sirolimus relative to either agent alone. Initiation of the Phase 1/2 trial is expected in the first half of 2023.

  • Presented combination data of KRAS inhibitors and nab-sirolimus at the 34th EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium. The results of these studies showed that combining nab-sirolimus with either of the KRASG12C inhibitors sotorasib or adagrasib significantly improved response against KRASG12C mutant lung cancer and bladder cancer tumors in vivo and nab-sirolimus also showed significantly greater potency in the combination compared to everolimus.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2022 were $183.0 million as compared to $149.0 million as of December 31, 2021, which is expected to fund operations into 2025 based on current plans.

  • Total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 was $4.2 million resulting from sales of FYARRO.

  • Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $14.5 million as compared to $87.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The prior year quarter included the non-cash impairment charge of $74.2 million related to the acquired contract intangible asset incurred in conjunction with the Aerpio merger.
