TYME Technologies, Inc. Reports Fourth Fiscal Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial and Operating Results-- $84.0 million in cash and marketable securities as of March 31, 2022 --

BEDMINSTER, N.J., May 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TYME Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TYME) (the Company or TYME), an emerging biotechnology company developing cancer metabolism-based therapies (CMBTs™), announced financial and operating results for its fourth fiscal quarter and full year ended March 31, 2022.

In March the Company announced that its Board of Directors decided to explore potential strategic options to enhance stockholder value, and this process is active and ongoing. The Company plans to provide an update upon completion of this process.

Fourth Fiscal Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results

As of the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $84.0 million in cash and marketable securities, compared to $92.0 million as of the quarter ended December 31, 2021. TYME’s operational cash burn rate for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 was $7.7 million compared to $4.5 million for the third quarter and $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. The cash burn rate, which reflects the Company’s cash operating expenses, was somewhat higher than previous projections primarily due to severance costs of $2.2 million recognized in the period. Net loss for the year ended March 31, 2022 was $23.6 million, or ($0.14) per share compared to $29.0 million or ($0.22) per share for the year ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in net loss compared to the prior year reflected lower ongoing trial costs due to the discontinued TYME-88-Panc Part 2 third-line Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer and Precision Promise trials, partially offset by costs incurred related to the OASIS clinical trial as well as various preclinical studies that commenced in the fiscal year.

Adjusted net loss was $23.0 million, or ($0.13) per share for the year ended March 31, 2022 compared to the GAAP net loss of $23.6 million. The difference of $0.5 million was due to $2.4 million of amortization of employee, director, and consultant stock options substantially offset by the change in fair value of the warrant liability of $1.8 million. Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share are non-GAAP measures. See “Use of Non-GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP measures.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share as presented in this report are non-GAAP measures. The adjustments relate to the change in fair value of warrant liability, amortization of employees, directors and consultants stock options and gain on warrant exchange. These financial measures are presented on a basis other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("Non-GAAP Measures"). In the reconciliation tables that follow, we present adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share, reconciled to their comparable GAAP measures, net loss and net loss per share. These items are adjusted because they are not operational or because they are significant noncash charges and management believes these adjustments are meaningful to understanding the Company's performance during the periods presented. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our definitions of adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies.

About TYME Technologies, Inc. 

TYME is an emerging biotechnology company developing cancer metabolism-based therapies (CMBTs™) that are intended to be effective across a broad range of solid tumors and hematologic cancers, while also maintaining patients’ quality of life through relatively low toxicity profiles. Unlike targeted therapies that attempt to regulate specific mutations within cancer, the Company’s therapeutic approach is designed to take advantage of a cancer cell’s innate metabolic weaknesses to cause cancer cell death.

The Company is currently focused on developing its novel compound, SM-88, its preclinical pipeline of novel CMBT™ programs, as well as TYME-19 as a potential therapeutic for SARS CoV-2 diseases. The Company believes that early clinical results demonstrated by SM-88 in multiple advanced cancers, including prostate, sarcomas and breast, reinforce the potential of its emerging CMBT™ pipeline.

About SM-88

SM-88 is an oral investigational modified proprietary tyrosine derivative that is believed to interrupt the metabolic processes of cancer cells by breaking down the cells’ key defenses and leading to cell death through oxidative stress and exposure to the body’s natural immune system. Clinical trial data have shown that SM-88 has demonstrated encouraging tumor responses across 15 different cancers, including lung, breast, prostate and sarcoma cancers with minimal serious grade 3 or higher adverse events. SM-88 is being evaluated in a Phase II study evaluating SM-88 in breast cancer (HR+/HER2-), as well as continuing enrollment of a Phase II study in high-risk metastatic sarcomas. SM-88 is an investigational therapy that is not approved for any indication in any disease.
