SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- VIR BIOTECHNOLOGY, Inc. (Nasdaq: VIR) today provided a corporate update and reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

“Vir is poised to have a transformational year, with catalysts expected in the second and fourth quarters, which build off last year’s clinical trial progress in our chronic hepatitis delta and B programs. We believe these data readouts, notably the SOLSTICE delta update in the second quarter, hold tremendous promise for patients as we work towards solutions for these deadly diseases,” said Marianne De Backer, M.Sc., Ph.D., MBA, Vir’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our financial strength allows us to fund multiple clinical programs through major inflection points while enabling the flexibility to invest in external innovation opportunities.”

Pipeline Programs

Chronic Hepatitis Delta (CHD)

  • The Company presented initial SOLSTICE data from a small subset of participants in a late-breaker presentation at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) The Liver Meeting in November 2023.
    • After 12 weeks of combination treatment with tobevibart and elebsiran, 5 out of 6 participants achieved undetectable HDV RNA and 6 out of 6 were below the lower limit of quantification.
  • The SOLSTICE trial is ongoing with enrollment currently ahead of schedule for completion in the first quarter of 2024 due to the high level of physician and patient interest. This portion of the SOLSTICE trial is investigating the combination of tobevibart and elebsiran given every 4 weeks in one cohort, and tobevibart monotherapy given every 2 weeks in another cohort. Of the 30 participants anticipated to be enrolled in each cohort, approximately 44% have compensated cirrhosis.
  • The Company expects to report data on a subset of participants in the second quarter: 12-week treatment data for 15 participants per regimen as well as 24-week data for 10 participants per regimen. Complete 24-week treatment data for 30 participants per regimen is expected in the fourth quarter of 2024.

Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB)

  • The Company presented new MARCH Part B data at AASLD The Liver Meeting in November 2023.
    • The data demonstrated an approximately three-fold higher response rate when adding tobevibart to a regimen of elebsiran with or without peginterferon after 24 weeks of treatment (15.0% for tobevibart + elebsiran + peginterferon alpha and 14.3% for tobevibart + elebsiran).
  • The MARCH Part B trial is ongoing with 48-week end of treatment data expected in the fourth quarter of 2024.
  • The Phase 2 PREVAIL platform trial and its THRIVE/STRIVE sub-protocols are ongoing. The platform is evaluating combinations of tobevibart, elebsiran and/or peginterferon alpha in two CHB patient populations with the potential to evaluate other populations in the future. Initial data from this platform trial is expected in the first half of 2025.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

  • The Phase 1 trial of VIR-1388, an investigational novel T cell vaccine for the prevention of HIV, remains ongoing with initial immunogenicity data expected in the second half of 2024.
    • The trial is supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and is being conducted by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.
    • In December, Nature Medicine recognized the Phase 1 trial of VIR-1388 as one of the “11 clinical trials that will shape medicine in 2024”.

COVID-19

  • Later this year, the Company expects to file a health authority application to support a Phase 1 trial evaluating VIR-7229, a potential broadly neutralizing next-generation COVID antibody that has been AI-engineered to have increased potency, breadth and resistance to viral escape.
    • The development of VIR-7229 has been supported in whole or in part with federal funds from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR); Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), under Other Transaction Number: 75A50122C00081.

Influenza

  • The full analysis of data from the Phase 2 PENINSULA trial is expected in the second quarter in a scientific publication.
  • On February 21, 2024, the Company and GSK terminated their collaboration to research, develop and commercialize the Company’s monoclonal antibodies for the prevention, treatment, or prophylaxis of the influenza virus under the Definitive Collaboration Agreement established in May 2021 to reflect that Vir retains sole rights to continue advancing its investigational therapies for influenza independently or with other partners.
  • The Company is actively pursuing external partnership opportunities for its next-generation influenza A and B antibodies and Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs).

Preclinical Pipeline Candidates

  • Vir is continuing to advance next-generation antibodies using its proprietary platform, which leverages dAIsYTM (data AI structure and antibody), an AI engine, allowing the Company to bring high-quality drug candidates to the clinic more efficiently.
  • The Company expects the filing of multiple new INDs in the next 12-24 months, including:
    • VIR-2981, an investigational neuraminidase-targeting mAb against both influenza A and B viruses.
    • VIR-8190, an investigational mAb against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human metapneumovirus.
    • VIR-1949, an investigational therapeutic T cell vaccine based on Vir’s human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) vector platform that is designed to treat precancerous lesions caused by the human papillomavirus.

Corporate Update

  • In December of 2023, the Company announced strategic imperatives to focus its capital allocation on programs with the highest potential for patient impact and value creation, which include:
    • Closing R&D facilities in St. Louis, Missouri and Portland, Oregon in 2024. Research activities will continue at the Company’s sites in San Francisco, California and Bellinzona, Switzerland.
    • Eliminating approximately 12%, or 75 positions, including reductions from the Company’s discontinuation of its small molecule group which was initiated in the third quarter of 2023. The reductions will be substantially completed by the end of the first quarter of 2024.
    • Through these actions, the Company expects to reduce its cost structure by at least $40 million annually.
  • On February 20, 2024, the Company announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Phil Pang, M.D., Ph.D., has decided to step down to spend more time with his family. Dr. Pang’s last day will be March 31, 2024. The Company has initiated a search for a successor.

Note: Numbers may not add due to rounding.

  • Collaboration revenue: The decrease in collaboration revenue for the fourth quarter and the full year of 2023 compared to the same periods in 2022 was driven by lower profit share from sales of sotrovimab under the Company’s 2020 GSK agreement.
  • Contract revenue: Contract revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 and 2022 was nominal. The decrease in contract revenue for the full year of 2023 compared to 2022 was primarily driven by the recognition of deferred revenue related to GSK’s selection of RSV in the third quarter of 2022 under the Company’s 2021 GSK agreement.
  • License revenue from a related party: The decrease in license revenue for the full year of 2023 compared to 2022 was driven by certain revenues recognized under the collaboration with Brii Biosciences in the third quarter of 2022.
  • Grant revenue: The decrease in grant revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022 and the increase in grant revenue for the full year of 2023 compared to 2022 were primarily driven by the timing of revenue recognized under the Company’s grant with BARDA supporting the Company’s Phase 2 PENINSULA trial of VIR-2482.

Cost of Revenue: Cost of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 was nominal compared to $6.0 million for the same period in 2022. Cost of revenue for the full year of 2023 was $2.8 million compared to $146.3 million in 2022. The decreases were due to lower third-party royalties owed on the sales of sotrovimab.

Research and Development Expenses (R&D): R&D expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were $111.9 million, which included severance charges of $2.6 million and $16.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, compared to $155.2 million for the same period in 2022, which included $13.4 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. The decrease was primarily driven by the wind down of clinical studies involving VIR-2482 in the fourth quarter of 2023. R&D expenses for the full year of 2023 were $589.7 million, which included $62.7 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, compared to $474.6 million in 2022, which included $53.2 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. The increase was primarily driven by the Phase 2 PENINSULA trial of VIR-2482 and related manufacturing costs and, to a lesser extent, the advancement of our CHB and CHD clinical programs.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (SG&A): SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were $43.1 million, which included $1.9 million of severance charges and $11.8 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, compared to $38.7 million for the same period in 2022, which included $11.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. SG&A expenses for the full year of 2023 were $178.0 million, which included $48.6 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, compared to $161.8 million in 2022, which included $48.9 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. The increase for both the fourth quarter and full year were primarily driven by higher personnel-related costs.

Other Income (Loss): Other income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $18.3 million compared to other loss of $(1.1) million for the same period in 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher foreign exchange loss incurred in the fourth quarter of 2022, partially offset by higher unrealized loss of equity investments in the same period of 2023. Other income for the full year of 2023 was $56.1 million compared to other loss of $(78.8) million in 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher unrealized loss of equity investments incurred in 2022 and higher interest income earned in 2023.

Benefit from (Provision for) Income Taxes: Benefit from income taxes for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $4.8 million compared to $50.0 million for the same period in 2022. Benefit from income taxes for the year of 2023 was $13.1 million compared to a provision for income taxes of $(238.4) million in 2022. The benefit from income taxes in the fourth quarter and the year of 2023 was primarily due to a pre-tax loss and our ability to carry back the R&D credit to 2022. The benefit from income taxes in the fourth quarter of 2022 was primarily due to the Company’s pre-tax loss. The swing from a provision for income taxes in 2022 to a benefit from income taxes in 2023 was due to the higher collaboration revenue from sotrovimab sales that resulted in pre-tax income in 2022.

Net (Loss) Income: Net loss attributable to Vir for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $(116.0) million, or $(0.86) per share, basic and diluted, compared to a net loss of $(101.6) million, or $(0.76) per share, basic and diluted, for the same period in 2022. Net loss attributable to Vir for the year of 2023 was $(615.1) million, or $(4.59) per share, basic and diluted, compared to a net income of $515.8 million, or $3.89 per share, basic and $3.83 per share, diluted, in 2022.
