Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future operational or financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q may include, but are not limited to, statements about:

 

the initiation, timing, progress, results, safety and efficacy, and cost of our research and development programs and our current and future preclinical studies and clinical trials, including statements regarding the timing of initiation and completion of studies or trials, the period during which the results of the trials will become available, and our research and development programs;

 

the ultimate impact of the ongoing coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic, or any other health epidemic, on our business, manufacturing, clinical trials, research programs, supply chain, regulatory review, healthcare systems or the global economy as a whole;

 

risks related to the direct or indirect impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic or any future large-scale adverse health event, such as the scope and duration of the outbreak, government actions and restrictive measures implemented in response, material delays in diagnoses, initiation or continuation of treatment for diseases that may be addressed by our development candidates and investigational medicines, or in patient enrollment in clinical trials, potential clinical trials, regulatory review or supply chain disruptions, and other potential impacts to our business, the effectiveness or timeliness of steps taken by us to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, and our ability to execute business continuity plans to address disruptions caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic or future large-scale adverse health event;

 

our ability to obtain funding for our operations necessary to complete further development, manufacturing and commercialization of our product candidates;

 

our ability to obtain and maintain regulatory approval for any of our current or future product candidates;

 

the period of time over which we anticipate our existing cash and cash equivalents, and marketable securities will be sufficient to fund our operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements;

 

our ability to identify and develop product candidates for treatment of additional disease indications;

 

the potential attributes and benefits of our product candidates;

 

the rate and degree of market acceptance and clinical utility for any product candidates we may develop;

 

the pricing and reimbursement of our product candidates, if approved;

 

the effects of competition with respect to any of our current or future product candidates, as well as innovations by current and future competitors in our industry;

 

the implementation of our strategic plans for our business, any product candidates we may develop and our TORPEDO® platform;

 

the ability and willingness of our third-party strategic collaborators to continue research, development and manufacturing activities relating to our product candidates, including our ability to advance programs under our existing collaboration agreements with F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd and Hoffmann-La Roche Inc., or Roche, Biogen MA, Inc., or Biogen, and Calico Life Sciences LLC, or Calico, or other new collaboration agreements;

 

the scope of protection we are able to establish and maintain for intellectual property rights covering our product candidates;

 

estimates of our future expenses, revenues, capital requirements, and our needs for additional financing;

 

future agreements with third parties in connection with the manufacturing and commercialization of our product candidates, if approved;

 

the size and growth potential of the markets for our product candidates and our ability to serve those markets;

 

our financial performance;

 

regulatory developments in the United States and foreign countries;

 

our ability to contract with third-party suppliers and manufacturers and their ability to perform adequately;

 


 

 

the success of competing therapies that are or may become available;

 

our ability to attract and retain key scientific or management personnel;

 

developments relating to our competitors and our industry; and

 

other risks and uncertainties, including those discussed in Part II, Item 1A - Risk Factors in this Form 10-Q.

In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “will,” “may,” “should,” “could,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “aims,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, those listed under the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a promise or a guarantee of future performance.

The forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q represent our views as of the date of this Form 10-Q. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should therefore not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Form 10-Q.

This Form 10-Q may include statistical and other industry and market data that we obtained from industry publications and research, surveys, and studies conducted by third parties. Industry publications and third-party research, surveys, and studies generally indicate that their information has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, although they do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information. We have not independently verified the information contained in such sources.

 


SUMMARY OF RISK FACTORS

Our ability to implement our business strategy is subject to numerous risks that you should be aware of before making an investment decision. These risks are described more fully in Part II, Item 1A - Risk Factors in this Form 10-Q. These risks include, among others:

 

We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company with a limited operating history and have incurred significant losses since our inception. To date, we have not generated any revenue from product sales. We expect to continue to incur significant expenses and increasing operating losses for at least the next several years and may never achieve or maintain profitability. Our net loss was $68.2 million and $44.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

We will need substantial additional funding to pursue our business objectives and continue our operations. If we are unable to raise capital when needed, we may be required to delay, limit, reduce or terminate our research or product development programs or future commercialization efforts.

 

Our approach to the discovery and development of product candidates based on our TORPEDO platform is unproven, which makes it difficult to predict the time, cost of development and likelihood of successfully developing any products.

 

Most of our product candidates are still in preclinical development and we have never completed a clinical trial of any of our product candidates. Our business could be harmed if we are unable to advance to clinical development, develop, obtain regulatory approval for and/or commercialize our product candidates; if we experience significant delays in doing any of these things; or if we experience significant cost increases.

 

We cannot be certain of the timely completion or outcome of our preclinical testing and clinical trials. In addition, the results of preclinical studies may not be predictive of the results of clinical trials and the results of any early-stage clinical trials we commence may not be predictive of the results of later-stage clinical trials.

 

Our preclinical studies and clinical trials may fail to demonstrate adequately the safety, potency, purity and efficacy of any of our product candidates, which would prevent or delay development, regulatory approval and commercialization of our current and future product candidates.

 

We have entered into collaboration agreements with Roche, Biogen and Calico and may in the future seek to enter into collaborations with third parties for the development and/or commercialization of certain of our product candidates. If we fail to enter into these types of new collaborations, or if our existing collaborations are not successful, we may be unable to continue development of our product candidates, we will not receive any contemplated or potential future milestone payments or royalties, and we could fail to capitalize on the market potential of our product candidates.

 

The continuing effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including the spread of new strains of the virus, could adversely impact our business, including our preclinical studies and clinical trials.

 

We face substantial competition, which may result in others discovering, developing or commercializing products before or more successfully than we do.

 

We rely, and expect to continue to rely, on third parties for the manufacture of our product candidates for preclinical and clinical testing, as well as for commercial manufacture if any of our product candidates receive marketing approval. This reliance on third parties may increase the risk that we will not have sufficient quantities of our product candidates in a timely manner, or at an acceptable cost or quality.

 

If we are unable to obtain required marketing approvals for, commercialize, manufacture, obtain and maintain patent protection for or gain market acceptance of our product candidates, or if we experience significant delays in doing so, our business will be materially harmed and our ability to generate revenue from product sales will be materially impaired.

 

If we are unable to obtain and maintain patent protection for our technology and products or if the scope of the patent protection obtained is not sufficiently broad, our competitors could develop and commercialize technology and products similar or identical to ours, and our ability to successfully commercialize our technology and products may be impaired.
