Innate Pharma SA (the “Company” - Euronext Paris: FR0010331421 – IPH) today announced its revenues and cash position for the first three months of 2017.
Cash, cash equivalents and financial assets of the Company amounted to €223.8 million* as of March 31, 2017. At the same date, financial liabilities amounted to €5.0 million.
Revenues for the first three months of 2017 amounted to €7.3 million (€5.7 million for the same period in 2016). This revenue results from the co-development and commercialization agreement with AstraZeneca, corresponding to the recognition over the period of the initial payment received in June 2015.
In 2016, revenue for the first three months also resulted mainly from the recognition over the period of the initial payment from the agreement with AstraZeneca.
At the beginning of 2017, Innate Pharma received a USD 15.0 million (€13.8 million) milestone payment from Bristol-Myers Squibb for the continued exploration of lirilumab in combination with Opdivo (nivolumab). This milestone has been recognized as revenue in its entirety in 2016 since the trigger event occurred in 2016.
Mondher Mahjoubi, Chief Executive Officer of Innate Pharma, commented: “During the first quarter of 2017, we were thrilled by the transition by Bristol-Myers Squibb of the combination of lirilumab with nivolumab to a randomized controlled cohort in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, as part of a broad expansion of the trial in solid tumors. We look forward to potential further update at an upcoming scientific conference.
With a clear strategy for growth, encouraging progress across our clinical programs, a strong financial position and several near-to-medium term read-outs on the horizon, we are well placed to deliver shareholder value and improved treatment options to patients. I am very excited to have joined the Company at this important time.”
