About RAPIDe-1

 


 

 

The RAPIDe-1 study is a clinical research study for people who have been diagnosed with HAE. The main purpose of the study is to find out how effective three different doses of the study drug, PHVS416, are in relieving symptoms associated with HAE attacks. Researchers developed the study drug in the form of softgel capsules which are taken orally and could be a more convenient alternative to an injection into a vein or under the skin for resolving HAE attacks. For more information, visit https://hae-rapide.com/, https://hae-rapide.us/, or https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04618211.

 

About HAE CHAPTER-1

The HAE CHAPTER-1 study is a clinical research study for people who have been diagnosed with HAE. The main purpose of the study is to evaluate two different doses of the study drug, PHVS416, in preventing HAE attacks. Researchers developed the study drug in the form of softgel capsules which are taken orally and could be a more convenient alternative to an injection into a vein or under the skin for preventing HAE attacks. For more information, visit https://haechapter-1.com or https://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT05047185.

 

About PHVS416

PHVS416 is a softgel capsule formulation containing PHA121, a highly potent, specific, and orally bioavailable competitive antagonist of the bradykinin B2 receptor. Pharvaris is developing this formulation to provide fast and reliable symptom relief when patients want, through rapid exposure of attack-mitigating medicine in a convenient, small oral dosage form. In healthy volunteers, a single dose of PHVS416 showed rapid exposure exceeding predicted therapeutically efficacious levels within 15 minutes. PHVS416 is currently in Phase 2 clinical development for the on-demand treatment of HAE.

 

About PHVS719

PHVS719 is an extended-release tablet formulation containing PHA121, a highly potent, specific, and orally bioavailable competitive antagonist of the bradykinin B2 receptor. Pharvaris is developing this formulation to provide an easy way to prevent attacks with sustained exposure of attack-preventing medicine in a convenient, small oral dosage form. PHVS719 is currently in Phase 1 clinical development for the prophylactic treatment of HAE. In healthy volunteers, a single dose of PHVS719 was well tolerated with an extended-release profile supporting

once-daily dosing.

 

About PHA121

PHA121 (PHA-022121) is a highly potent, specific, and orally bioavailable competitive antagonist of the bradykinin B2 receptor that has completed Phase 1 clinical development for the treatment of HAE. PHA121

 


 

 

utilizes the same mechanism as icatibant, the leading therapy for on-demand treatment of HAE. Pharvaris is developing this novel small molecule for on-demand and prophylactic treatment of HAE and other bradykinin-mediated diseases through formulations optimized for each setting. Data from single- and multiple-ascending-dose Phase 1 studies in healthy volunteers demonstrate rapid exposure and linear pharmacokinetics at doses up to 50 mg. In a bradykinin-challenge study in healthy volunteers, PHA121 showed significant inhibition of bradykinin-induced hemodynamic changes with an average composite EC50 of 2.4 ng/mL and EC85 of 13.8 ng/mL, approximately four-fold more potent than historical data for icatibant. Quantitative modeling indicates that single oral doses of PHA121 will maintain pharmacological effectiveness for a substantially longer time than 30 mg of subcutaneous icatibant. PHA121 has been observed to be well-tolerated at all doses studied to date.

 

About Pharvaris

Pharvaris is a clinical-stage company developing novel, oral bradykinin-B2-receptor antagonists to treat and prevent HAE attacks, building on its deep-seated roots in HAE. By directly targeting this clinically proven therapeutic target with novel small molecules, the Pharvaris team aspires to offer people with all sub-types of HAE more effective and convenient alternatives to treat attacks, both on-demand and prophylactically. The company brings together the best talent in the industry with deep expertise in rare diseases and HAE. For more information, visit https://pharvaris.com/.

In addition, we recommend that you read any public announcements made from time to time by Pharvaris N.V.

The following discussion is based on our financial information prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (the “IASB”), which may differ in material respects from generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and other jurisdictions. We maintain our books and records in euros. Unless otherwise indicated, all references to currency amounts in this discussion are in euros.

The following discussion includes forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including but not limited to those described under “Item 3. Key Information—D Risk factors” in the Annual Report.

Unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, all references to “Pharvaris” or the “Company,” “we,” “our,” “ours,” “us”, or similar terms refer to Pharvaris N.V. and its subsidiaries.

Overview

We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapies for rare diseases with significant unmet need, initially focused on angioedema and other bradykinin-mediated diseases. Our first molecule, PHA121, is a novel, small-molecule bradykinin B2-receptor antagonist for the treatment of hereditary angioedema, or HAE. Bradykinin-B2-receptor inhibition is a clinically validated mechanism for the treatment of HAE, as demonstrated by icatibant, which is a bradykinin B2-receptor antagonist approved in Europe in 2008 and in the United States in 2011 (as FIRAZYR®). We designed PHA121 to improve upon the therapeutic profile of existing therapies and, through oral delivery, to provide patients with quality of life and convenience that is superior to current standard-of-care HAE treatments, which are injectables. We believe PHA121 has the potential to provide a safe, effective and convenient option for both acute and prophylactic treatments of HAE, in the form of our PHVS416 on-demand rapid exposure product candidate, and for prophylaxis of HAE, in the form of our PHVS719 small daily dose extended-release product candidate. We believe that our product candidates may address a broader range of angioedema attacks than other available treatments since PHA121 blocks the actual signal that leads to angioedema (the interaction of bradykinin, or BK, with the bradykinin B2 receptor), rather than an upstream signal. By blocking the action of bradykinin, we can prevent its aberrant signaling regardless of the pathway that generates it.

In our completed Phase 1 trials to-date, we have observed that PHA121 was orally bioavailable and well tolerated at all doses studied, with approximately dose-proportional exposure. We also have successfully demonstrated proof-of-mechanism through a clinical pharmacodynamics, or PD, assessment with the bradykinin challenge, which had been utilized as a validated surrogate assessment for dose selection in the icatibant development program. The data also allowed us to compare the projected therapeutic performance of PHA121 in comparison with that of icatibant, but we do not yet have data from a PHA121 Phase 2 study. We plan to efficiently progress PHA121 through clinical development for on-demand and prophylactic use with our on-demand product candidate, PHVS416, and extended-release product candidate, PHVS719, respectively.

 

We commenced our RAPIDe-1 Phase 2 clinical trial of PHVS416 in February 2021 and anticipate we will have top line Phase 2 data for the acute treatment of patients with HAE attacks in the fourth quarter of 2022. We also commenced a Phase 2 clinical trial for prophylaxis in 2021 using twice-daily dosing of the PHVS416 softgel


capsules. Our primary objective with this trial is to assess the safety profile of PHVS416 dose regimens for prophylactic treatments in HAE patients. Top-line data from the study are anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2022. We also initiated a Phase 1 clinical trial with PHVS719 in 2021 to assess pharmacokinetics of the extended-release formulation and reported results in the first quarter of 2022. In healthy volunteers, a single dose of PHVS719 was well tolerated with an extended-release profile supporting once-daily dosing.

A wide variety of events beyond our control, including natural or man-made disasters, power shortages, fires, extreme weather conditions, pandemics, epidemics or outbreaks of infectious diseases, political instability or other events could disrupt our business or operations or those of our development partners, manufacturers, regulators or other third parties with whom we conduct business now or in the future. These events may cause businesses and government agencies to be shut down, supply chains to be interrupted, slowed, or rendered inoperable, and individuals to become ill, quarantined, or otherwise unable to work and/or travel due to health reasons or governmental restrictions.

 

Variants of COVID-19 virus continue to spread globally. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the governments of many countries, states, cities and other geographic regions have taken preventative or protective actions, such as imposing restrictions on travel and business operations and advising or requiring individuals to limit or forego their time outside of their homes. We have also taken steps to identify and mitigate the adverse effects and risks to the Company as a result of the pandemic. We have modified our business practices, including implementing work from home arrangements for employees able to perform their duties remotely, restricting nonessential travel, and practicing safe social distancing in our operations. We expect to continue to take actions as may be required or recommended by government authorities or in the best interests of our employees and business partners. While the impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s operations and financial performance has so far been limited, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact our financial condition or results of operations in the future is uncertain. For instance, the ongoing spread of variants of the COVID-19 virus may continue to interrupt, or delay, our clinical trial activities, regulatory reviews, manufacturing activities and supply chain. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business will depend on future developments, which are uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, including among other things, the effectiveness and outreach of COVID-19 vaccines.

 

Recent Developments

 

The invasion of Ukraine and the retaliatory measures that have been taken, or could be taken in the future, by the United States, NATO, and other countries have created global security concerns that could result in a regional conflict and also adversely affect our ability to conduct ongoing and future clinical trials of our product candidates. For example, our RAPIDe-1 study includes a significant number of patients in Germany, Poland and Bulgaria. A further escalation of the conflict in Ukraine may potentially impact our ability to complete our ongoing and planned clinical trials in these countries on a timely basis, or at all. Clinical trials in these countries could be suspended or terminated, and we may be prevented from obtaining data on patients already enrolled at affected sites. Any of the foregoing could impede the execution of our clinical development plans.

 

Recent Announcements

 

On May 11, 2022, the Company announced the expansion of its leadership team through the appointment of Ms. J. Schmidt as Chief Legal Officer.

Financial Operations Overview

Revenues

We did not record any revenues during the period covered by the historical financial information included in this Report. We do not expect to recognize any revenues before we are able to commercialize our first product.

Research and development expenses

We are focused on the clinical development of PHA121. Since our inception, we have devoted substantially all our resources to research and development efforts relating to the development of PHA121 and our product candidates PHVS416 and PHVS719. We expect that we will continue to incur significant research and development expenses as we seek to complete the clinical development of, and achieve regulatory approval for, our product candidates PHVS416 and PHVS719, and in connection with discovery and development of any additional product candidates.

Research and development expenses consist of the following:

 

employee benefits expenses, which includes salaries, pensions, share-based compensation expenses, bonus plans and other related costs for research and development staff;

 

nonclinical expenses, which include costs of our outsourced discovery and nonclinical development studies;

 

clinical expenses, which includes costs of conducting and managing our sponsored clinical trials, including clinical investigator cost, costs of clinical sites, and costs for CRO’s assisting with our clinical development programs;

 

manufacturing expenses, which include costs related to manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients and manufacturing of the products used in our clinical trials and research and development activities;

 

costs related to regulatory activities, including collecting data, preparing and submitting filings, communicating with regulatory authorities and reviewing the design and conduct of clinical trials for compliance with applicable requirements;

 

costs in connection with investigator-sponsored clinical trials and evaluations;

 

advisers’ fees, including discovery, nonclinical, clinical, chemistry, manufacturing, and controls- related and other consulting services;

 

intellectual property costs, which includes costs associated with obtaining and maintaining patents and other intellectual property; and

 

license costs.

We anticipate that our total research and development expenses will continue to increase as we continue to progress PHVS416 and PHVS719 through clinical development.

There is a risk that any clinical development or product discovery program may not result in commercial approval. To the extent that we fail to obtain approval to commercialize our product candidate in a timely manner, we would need to continue to conduct clinical trials over a longer period of time, and we anticipate that our research and development expenses may further increase.

Clinical development timelines and associated costs may vary significantly and the successful development of our product candidate is highly uncertain. At this time, we cannot reasonably estimate the nature, timing and estimated costs of the efforts, including patient recruitment and selection that will be necessary to complete the

3


development of, or the period, if any, in which material net cash inflows may commence from, our product candidates.

Moreover, we cannot assure that we will be able to successfully develop or commercialize our product candidates, if approved for marketing. This is due to numerous risks and uncertainties associated with developing drugs. See “Item 3. Key Information—D. Risk factors” in our Annual Report for a discussion of these risks and uncertainties.

Selling and distribution expenses

Historically, we have not incurred any selling and distribution expenses. If our product candidates are approved for registration and marketing, we anticipate incurring substantial selling and distribution expenses in future periods in order to establish an infrastructure for marketing and distribution, obtain supplies of active pharmaceutical ingredients, and manufacture commercial quantities of our product candidate.

General and administrative expenses

We anticipate that we will continue to incur significant general and administrative expenses as we advance our research and development portfolio. General and administrative expenses consist of the following:

 

employee benefits, including salaries, pensions, share-based compensation expenses, bonus plans and other related costs for staff and independent contractors in executive and operational functions;

 

auditors’ and advisers’ fees, including accounting, tax, legal and other consulting services;

 

rental expenses, facilities and IT expenses and other general expenses relating to our operations; and

 

expenses related to the build-out of our commercial organization, including assessments of the HAE market landscape, pricing research and congress attendance.

We anticipate that the continuing development of our business and the expense of maintaining directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, will contribute to future increase in general and administrative expenses. We also expect that general and administrative expenses will increase in the future as we incur additional costs associated with being a public company in the United States.

Share-based compensation expenses

In 2016, we implemented an Equity Incentive Plan, or the Plan, in order to advance the interests of our shareholders by enhancing our ability to attract, retain and motivate persons who are expected to make important contributions to us and by providing such persons with performance-based incentives that are intended to better align the interests of such persons with those of our shareholders. In order to incentivize our directors and employees, our Board adopted the Pharvaris N.V. 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”) for employees, consultants and directors prior to the completion of our initial public offering (“IPO”). The 2021 Plan became effective upon our conversion from Pharvaris B.V. into Pharvaris N.V., which occurred prior to the consummation of our IPO. The 2021 Plan provides for the grant of options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, RSUs, performance stock awards, other stock-based awards, performance cash awards and substitute awards. The fair values of these instruments are recognized as personnel expenses in either research and development expenses or general and administrative expenses.

Research and development expenses increased from €8,071,451 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to €13,514,488 for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The increase in the research and development expenses is mainly driven by the progress made in the PHVS416 and PHVS719 development programs in the three months ended March 31, 2022. Clinical expenses increased by €3,300,363 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to the progression of the RAPIDe-1 on demand and CHAPTER-1 prophylactic Phase 2 studies and preparations for their open-label extension studies. Nonclinical expenses decreased by €145,928 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to our completing preparations for the Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical PHVS416 and PHVS719 programs. Manufacturing costs relating to the API and pharmaceutical development of PHVS416 and PHVS719 increased by €2,146,332 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to supply costs associated with the clinical programs and preparations for the pre-commercialization

phase. In the personnel expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 an amount of €928,911 and €1,358,701, respectively, was included which related to share-based compensation arrangements.

General and administrative expenses increased from €3,771,693 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to €5,865,006 for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly driven by the growth of the Company in connection with the completion of the IPO, which also led to additional expenses inherent to being a public company and the initiation of our commercial buildout. In the personnel expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 an amount of €1,018,027 and €737,909 respectively, was included which related to share-based compensation arrangements.

 

Net foreign exchange income/(loss)

Net foreign exchange income/(loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were €3,391,179 and €5,818,856, respectively. The amount mainly relates to unrealized foreign exchange income, which is mostly the result of translating the Company’s bank balances held in USD to EUR. The foreign exchange rates developed in favor of the Company in the first quarter 2022.

 

Income taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for in line with IAS 34. The interim period is considered part of a larger financial year, where the income tax is recognized in each interim period based on the best estimate of the weighted average annual income tax rate expected for the full financial year. The estimated tax expenses are determined based on a full year basis (P&L) and subsequently allocated using the expected full year effective tax rate. The one-off items are recognized in full in the interim period in which they emerge. In the total interim tax charge, no distinction is made between current and deferred tax expenses/income.

The total tax expense over the three months ended March 31, 2022 relate to the utilisation of the deferred tax asset as a result of a temporary difference which occurred in the Company's US subsidiary.

 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Since inception, we have incurred significant operating losses. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 we incurred losses of €16,027,030 and €6,042,887, respectively. Since inception, we have not generated any revenues or net cash flows from sales. We will not receive any revenues or net cash flows from sales of our product candidate until it has been approved by regulatory authorities and we have commercialized it. There is no assurance that we will be able to do so.

To date, we have relied solely on the issuance of equity securities to finance our operations and internal growth. On March 1, 2022, we entered into a sales agreement with SVB Securities LLC, or SVB Leerink, pursuant to which we may sell ordinary shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $75 million from time to time through SVB Leerink. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we sold 500 ordinary shares under the sales agreement generating net proceeds of $9,258, after deducting $278 which was payable to SVB Leerink as commission in respect of such sales. As of March 31, 2022 we had cash and cash equivalents of €194.8 million. Our cash and cash equivalents consist solely of cash at bank.

 

Our contractual obligations and commitments as of March 31, 2022 amounted to €17 million, primarily related to research and development commitments.

Operating activities

Net cash used in operating activities reflects our results for the period adjusted for, among other things, depreciation, unrealized foreign exchange results, share-based compensation, changes in working capital and interest accruals and payments.

Net cash used in operating activities was €17,881,192 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of €7,681,586 compared to €10,199,606 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily reflecting the increase in research and development expenses and other operating expenses, due to progression made in the PHVS416 and PHVS719 development programs and the growth of our organization in 2021 and 2022.

Investing activities

Net cash flows used in investing activities increased by €16,307 from €10,065 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to €26,372 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, primarily as a result of capital expenditure related to office equipment in 2022.

Financing activities

Net cash flows provided by financing activities decreased by €144,111,665 from €144,001,539 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, to € (110,126) for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The high net cash inflow

in 2021 was the result of the proceeds from the IPO net of underwriting discount and other transaction costs. The cash outflow in three months ended March 31, 2022 relates to the financial lease and transaction costs.

As of March 31, 2022, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements other than the disclosed commitments.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
