BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Immunome, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMNM), a biotechnology company focused on developing first-in-class and best-in-class targeted cancer therapies, today announced financial results for the full year ended December 31, 2023, and provided an overview of recent developments.

“2023 was a transformative year for Immunome as we closed the merger with Morphimmune, advanced our pipeline and expanded the company’s leadership team,” said Clay B. Siegall, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. “These accomplishments laid the groundwork for a productive start to 2024, including the acquisition of two promising assets and a successful financing.”

Dr. Siegall continued, “We are focused on efficiently developing our four existing assets and expanding our pipeline. We expect to add novel antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and radioligand therapies (RLTs) to the pipeline through internal discovery efforts while continuing to evaluate opportunities to acquire high-quality assets on favorable financial terms. We are well-positioned to develop best-in-class or first-in-class therapies to improve the lives of cancer patients.”

Pipeline Highlights

The purchase of AL102 from Ayala Pharmaceuticals closed on March 25, 2024. Immunome expects to report topline data for the ongoing Phase 3 RINGSIDE Part B trial of AL102 in the first quarter of 2025. Ayala previously announced the full enrollment of RINGSIDE in February 2024. In parallel, Immunome is evaluating and performing additional manufacturing and pharmacology work required to support an NDA submission of AL102.

Immunome’s preclinical pipeline includes IM-1021, a ROR1 ADC; IM-3050, a FAP-targeted RLT; and IM-4320, an anti-IL-38 immunotherapy candidate. Immunome anticipates submitting investigational new drug applications (INDs) for IM-3050 and IM-1021 in the first quarter of 2025. Anticipated timing for an IND for IM-4320 will be shared at a later date.

Highlights from 2023 and early 2024

  • Successfully completed an underwritten offering of 11.5M shares priced at $20 per share for gross proceeds of $230.0M in February 2024, providing capital that is expected to support completion of the RINGSIDE trial and advancement of IM-1021, IM-3050 and IM-4320 into clinic. Immunome’s current cash runway is expected to extend into 2026.
  • Acquired AL102, a Phase 3 gamma secretase inhibitor with best-in-class potential, from Ayala Pharmaceuticals in March 2024.
  • Exclusively licensed IM-1021 (formerly known as ZPC-21), a preclinical ROR1 ADC with first-in-class potential, as well as the underlying ADC linker-payload technology, from Zentalis in January 2024.
  • Nominated IM-3050 as a FAP RLT candidate with first-in-class potential in December 2023.
  • Completed the acquisition of Morphimmune, Inc, a concurrent PIPE of $125 million, and the transition to Clay Siegall, Ph.D. as President and CEO in October 2023.
  • Filled leadership positions post-merger, including key members of the Executive Committee and five VP/SVP roles.

Full-year 2023 Financial Results

  • As of December 31, 2023, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $138.1 million, which does not include gross proceeds of $230 million from the February financing.
