Zug, Switzerland, May 8, 2023Pharvaris (Nasdaq: PHVS), a clinical-stage company developing novel, oral bradykinin-B2-receptor antagonists to treat and prevent hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023 and provided a business update.

“The Pharvaris team has made strong progress advancing our key studies and initiatives toward meaningful year-end milestones, including the anticipated reporting of topline CHAPTER-1 data and the submission of newly generated non-clinical toxicology data to the FDA to address the clinical holds in the U.S.,” said Berndt Modig, Chief Executive Officer of Pharvaris. “The data presented at the C1-inhibitor Deficiency and Angioedema Workshop provide additional insights into the therapeutic profile of deucrictibant as potential treatment for HAE and other bradykinin-mediated diseases.”

Recent Business Updates

Top-line data from CHAPTER-1, a global Phase 2 study of PHVS416 (immediate-release deucrictibant capsules) for the prophylactic treatment of HAE attacks, anticipated by YE2023. CHAPTER-1 is currently on hold in the U.S. All CHAPTER-1 sites outside of the U.S. continue to recruit participants in the study. Based on the Company’s current assessment of the ex-U.S. regulatory status and enrollment rates, Pharvaris anticipates announcing top-line data by the end of 2023.
Non-clinical toxicology study ongoing. A 26-week rodent toxicology study, which is intended to provide additional data to address the clinical holds in the U.S., is ongoing; the results from which Pharvaris anticipates submitting to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the end of 2023.
Clinical and non-clinical deucrictibant data presented at a recent medical meeting supports ongoing clinical development. Pharvaris presented data from clinical and non-clinical studies in two oral and three poster presentations at the 13th C1-inhibitor Deficiency and Angioedema Workshop, which was held from May 4-7, 2023, in Budapest, Hungary.

Exhibit 99.2

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

This management’s discussion and analysis is designed to provide you with a narrative explanation of our financial condition and results of operations. We recommend that you read this discussion together with our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements, including the notes thereto, for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 included as Exhibit 99.3 to the Report on Form 6-K to which this discussion is attached as Exhibit 99.2. We also recommend that you read “Item 4. Information on the Company”, “Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects” and our audited consolidated financial statements for fiscal year 2022, and the notes thereto, which appear in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Annual Report”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In addition, we recommend that you read any public announcements made from time to time by Pharvaris N.V.

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, deucrictibant, 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 deucrictibant 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 deucrictibant 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 deucrictibant 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 deucrictibant 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.

We have demonstrated clinical efficacy and tolerability in a Phase 2 study (RAPIDe-1) treating attacks of HAE. The data allowed us to compare the projected therapeutic performance of deucrictibant with that of icatibant. However, we have not concluded a head-to-head comparison of icatibant to deucrictibant in a clinical study. We plan to efficiently progress deucrictibant 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 reported topline Phase 2 data for the acute treatment of patients with HAE attacks in December 2022. We also commenced the CHAPTER-1 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 efficacy and safety profile of PHVS416 dose regimens for prophylactic treatments in HAE patients. We expect to have Phase 2 data from CHAPTER-1 by the end of 2023. In February 2022, we reported Phase 1 clinical data with PHVS719 demonstrating pharmacokinetics of the extended-release formulation and the potential for once-daily dosing. 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. 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.

In addition, 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 and CHAPTER-1 studies include 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.

Furthermore, in August 2022, the FDA placed a hold on the clinical trials of deucrictibant in the U.S. based on its review of nonclinical data. The FDA requested that Pharvaris conduct an additional long-term rodent toxicology study and update the Investigator’s Brochure. Pharvaris participated in a Type A meeting with the FDA to discuss paths to address the on-demand and prophylactic holds. A protocol for a 26-week rodent toxicology study has been aligned with the FDA and the study has initiated. We expect to submit results for this study to the FDA by the end of 2023. However, we cannot provide any assurance that we will be able to resolve the clinical holds.

The FDA agreed to partially lift the clinical hold on on-demand to allow two remaining U.S. participants in RAPIDe-1 to complete treatment of a final HAE attack per protocol. All other clinical studies of deucrictibant are currently on hold in the U.S. Outside the U.S., the regulatory status remains unchanged for the CHAPTER-1 study and other studies, including an open-label, long-term extension study (RAPIDe-2). Pharvaris notified country-specific regulatory authorities in Canada, Europe, Israel, and the UK of the U.S. clinical holds. All active sites outside of the U.S. continue to recruit participants in the CHAPTER-1 clinical study.

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 deucrictibant. Since our inception, we have devoted substantially all of our resources to research and development efforts relating to the development of deucrictibant 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 Contract Research Organizations ("CRO") 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 nonclinical studies or 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 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;
independent 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 €13,514,488 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 to €13,744,431 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. 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, 2023.

 

Clinical expenses decreased by €1,697,618 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022, due to the progression and read-out of the RAPIDe-1 on demand and progression of the CHAPTER-1 prophylactic Phase 2 studies and their open-label extension studies.

 

Nonclinical expenses increased by €1,935,073 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022, primarily due to studies related to the 26-week rodent toxicology study intended to address the clinical hold in the U.S.

Manufacturing costs relating to the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient ("API") and pharmaceutical development of PHVS416 and PHVS719 decreased by €1,557,438 for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022, due to the procurement of raw materials in Q1-2022. Activities are ongoing to support the clinical programs and preparations for the pre-commercialization phase.

 

In the personnel expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 an amount of €1,212,616 and €928,911, respectively, was included which related to share-based compensation arrangements. The increase in the share-based payments for the three months ended March 31, 2023, relates to the new grants awarded in the period after March 31, 2022 up to and including March 31, 2023. The remaining increase in personnel expenses is driven by the growth of our organization resulting in additional employees hired, and yearly merit adjustments.

General and administrative expenses increased from €5,865,006 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 to €7,331,596 for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly driven by the growth of the Company and increasing costs related to our commercial buildout. In the personnel expenses for the three months ended March 31,2023 and 2022 an amount of €1,370,271 and €1,018,027 respectively, was included which related to share-based compensation arrangements. The increase in the share-based payments for the three months ended March 31, 2023, relates to the new grants awarded in the period after March 31, 2022 up to and including March 31, 2023. The remaining increase in personnel expenses is driven by the growth of our organization resulting in additional employees hired, and yearly merit adjustments.

 

Finance (expense) income

Finance (expense) income for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 were (€1,494,265) and €3,391,179, respectively. The amount mainly relates to unrealized foreign exchange (losses)/income, which is mostly the result of translating the Company’s bank balances held in USD to EUR.

 

Income taxes

 

The tax expense over the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 relates to the Company's U.S. subsidiary as the result of a cost-plus agreement between the U.S. and the Company’s principal entity, resulting in an estimated taxable profit in the U.S.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since inception, we have incurred significant operating losses. For the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 we incurred losses of €22,630,949 and €16,027,030, 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 until we successfully develop a product candidate, obtain regulatory approval and successfully commercialize 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 Securities, pursuant to which we may sell ordinary shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $75 million from time to time through SVB Securities. During 2022, we sold a total of 588,100 ordinary shares in two different transactions under the sales agreement generating total net proceeds of $9,698,504, after deducting $299,954 which was payable to SVB Securities as commission in respect of such sales. Our understanding is that SVB Securities is not impacted by the Silicon Valley Bank ("SVB") receivership proceedings.

 

As of March 31, 2023 we had cash and cash equivalents of €135,181,223. Of the cash on hand, €65,567 relates to guarantees. Our cash and cash equivalents consist solely of cash at bank.

 

We do not expect positive operating cash flows in the foreseeable future and remain dependent on additional financing to fund our research and development expenses, general and administrative expenses and financing costs. We believe that the available cash balances are sufficient to execute our operating plan and strategies and to meet the anticipated working capital requirements and settle all expected liabilities for at least twelve months from the issuance date of our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. Accordingly, the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

Our future viability is dependent on our ability to raise additional capital to finance operations. We will need to finance our operations through public or private securities offerings, debt financings or other sources, which may include licensing, collaborations or other strategic transactions or arrangements. Although we have been successful in raising capital in the past, there is no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining such additional financing on terms acceptable to us, if at all. If we are unable to obtain funding, we could be forced to delay, reduce, or eliminate some or all of our research and development programs for product candidates, product portfolio expansion or commercialization efforts, which could adversely affect our business prospects, or we may be unable to continue operations.

 

Our contractual obligations and commitments as of March 31, 2023 amounted to €26,736,388 primarily related to research and development commitments.
