The financial results reported by RedHill Biopharma indicate a significant strategic shift in the company's operations, with a focus on U.S. government-funded research and development (R&D) in areas such as nuclear and chemical countermeasures and infectious diseases like COVID-19 and Ebola. This pivot towards externally funded R&D is a prudent move, particularly in light of the company's improved financial performance in 2023, which shows a net income of $23.9 million compared to the net loss of $71.7 million the previous year.

From a market perspective, the transition to a cost-disciplined approach and the divestiture of Movantik are indicative of a strategic realignment that aims to optimize the company's portfolio and focus on areas with high unmet medical needs and significant market opportunities. The reported gross profit of $3.1 million on revenues of $6.5 million, along with the operating income of $12.6 million, is a testament to the effectiveness of these measures. Investors and stakeholders should note that the company's cash balance of $6.5 million, while modest, reflects the current stage of its corporate transformation.

RedHill's emphasis on novel, oral, host-directed small molecule drugs like opaganib and RHB-107, which are in advanced clinical development, positions the company to potentially capitalize on the multi-billion-dollar global market for medical countermeasures and treatments for viral pandemics. The government funding and strategic collaborations further de-risk the development process and could lead to expedited pathways to approval under the FDA's Animal Rule for certain indications.

RedHill's operational highlights suggest that the company is navigating the regulatory landscape effectively, particularly with the potential use of the FDA Animal Rule for the development of opaganib as a medical countermeasure for nuclear and chemical incidents. The Animal Rule allows for approval based on animal studies when it is not feasible or ethical to conduct trials in humans, which could accelerate the approval process for opaganib and RHB-107 in their respective applications.

The strategic business transactions discussed, including potential divestment of assets or commercial operations, reflect a focused approach to streamline the company's operations and concentrate resources on the most promising areas of development. This strategic move could potentially enhance shareholder value by improving the company's financial health and allowing for more efficient allocation of capital towards high-potential projects.

It is also noteworthy that the company's R&D candidates are targeting underserved therapeutic areas, which may provide additional incentives such as priority review vouchers, increasing the attractiveness of these assets from a legal and regulatory standpoint. Stakeholders should be aware of the implications of these incentives on the company's potential market positioning and competitive advantage.

The selection of RedHill's investigational drugs by U.S. government programs underscores the importance of public-private partnerships in addressing public health emergencies and national security concerns. The focus on medical countermeasures for nuclear and chemical incidents, as well as emerging infectious diseases like COVID-19 and Ebola, aligns with current healthcare policies that prioritize preparedness and response to biological threats.

RedHill's collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health for the development of opaganib and RHB-107 could facilitate access to additional funding and resources, thereby supporting the company's R&D efforts. This alignment with government-funded initiatives not only provides financial support but also reflects a strategic alignment with national health priorities, potentially enhancing the company's reputation and positioning within the biopharmaceutical industry.

The company's focus on oral, host-directed therapies is particularly relevant in the context of pandemic preparedness, as these treatments can be more easily distributed and administered in emergency situations. The mutation-resistant nature of these drugs is also a significant advantage, given the rapid evolution of viral pathogens and the need for flexible, long-term solutions.

RedHill continues corporate transformation to focus on U.S. government-funded pipeline development in underserved, sizeable therapeutic areas with a disciplined cost-base

 

Focused externally funded R&D:

Opaganib for nuclear and chemical medical countermeasure (NIH funding): Selected for evaluation by two U.S. government countermeasures programs for Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) and Sulfur Mustard exposure. Nuclear and chemical incident response strategies are characterized by significant government stockpiling of approved agents

Opaganib for Ebola (U.S. Army funding): U.S. Army studies suggest opaganib is the first host-directed molecule to show activity in vivo in Ebola virus disease, delivering a statistically significant increase in survival; separately, opaganib demonstrated robust synergistic effect in vitro when combined with remdesivir (Veklury®; Gilead Sciences, Inc.), improving viral inhibition while maintaining cell viability

RHB-107 for COVID-19 (U.S. DoD funding): Selected for inclusion in the 300-patient ACESO PROTECT platform trial for early COVID-19 outpatient treatment; COVID-19 treatment continues to be a multi-hundreds of million-dollar market

RHB-107 for Ebola (U.S. Army funding): RHB-107 also demonstrated robust synergistic effect in vitro when combined with remdesivir. Management of potential Ebola virus pandemic outbreaks represents a significant opportunity and is a key concern for global health agencies

With multiple target indications, opaganib and RHB-107 are novel, oral, host-directed small molecule drugs in advanced clinical development, with demonstrated safety & efficacy profiles, well suited to counter nuclear / chemical exposure and viral pandemic scenarios, being viral mutation-resistant and easy to administer and distribute

Dror Ben-Asher, RedHill's Chief Executive Officer, said: "The RedHill of today is transformed - focused on predominantly U.S. government-funded pipeline development in underserved, sizeable therapeutic areas with a disciplined cost-base and unburdened by debt - we have a very clear direction and value proposition. We are actively pursuing and in discussions with multiple parties regarding strategic business transactions, including potential divestment of certain of our assets and/or our commercial operations, while we focus on the progression of our two lead R&D candidates, opaganib and RHB-107. Both are advancing in programs that are externally funded, predominantly through U.S. government support, and directed at multiple underserved indications that provide both an aggregated multi-billion global market opportunities and potentially advantageous pathways to approval under the FDA Animal Rule2 for certain indications."

Mr. Ben-Asher continued: "We believe that growing geo-political instability and current regional conflicts are causes for concern regarding increased potential for both nuclear and chemical threats. Governments across the world and global health organizations have been stepping up their efforts to find new options in the face of these devastating possibilities – especially those that can be delivered in challenging circumstances. Opaganib has now been selected by separate U.S. government-funded programs for evaluation as a nuclear and chemical medical countermeasure for Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) and Sulfur Mustard exposure. RHB-107 has been selected for inclusion in the predominantly U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)-funded 300-patient ACESO PROTECT platform trial for early COVID-19 outpatient treatment, for which screening has commenced and first patients are expected to be enrolled imminently. In addition, in U.S. Army studies, both opaganib and RHB-107 have delivered positive results in pre-clinical testing against Ebola – a disease with a more than 50% mortality rate for which innovation in therapy is desperately needed. Opaganib, we believe, became the first host-directed molecule to show activity in vivo in Ebola virus disease, delivering a statistically significant increase in survival, while both opaganib and RHB-107 showed an in vitro synergistic effect with remdesivir in viral inhibition. Both opaganib and RHB-107 are novel, oral, host-directed small molecule drugs, with demonstrated safety and efficacy profiles, that are well-suited to counter nuclear/chemical exposure and viral pandemic scenarios, being mutation-resistant and easy to administer and distribute."

Financial results for the 12 months ended December 31, 20233

Net Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, were $6.5 million, compared to $61.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2022. The decrease was primarily attributable to the divestiture of Movantik. Talicia net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, increased to $8.8 million from $7.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, driven mainly by a 15% increase in gross revenues, with stable Gross-to-Net. Net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, were reduced by ($2.6) million in contra-revenues for Movantik, largely from returns.

Cost of Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, was $3.5 million, compared to $33.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022. This decrease was primarily attributable to the divestiture of Movantik. As a result of this divestiture, both the recognition of revenues and the associated cost of revenues for this product were discontinued starting from February 2, 2023. Additionally, the amortization of the intangible asset related to Movantik was also discontinued as of that date.

R&D Overview

RedHill's R&D efforts are concentrated on its two lead investigational candidates, opaganib and RHB-107 – with both advancing in programs that are externally funded, predominantly through U.S. government support, and directed at multiple underserved indications that provide both sizeable market opportunities, estimated aggregate to be well in excess of $1 billion globally, and potentially advantageous pathways to approval.

Opaganib's development is focused on a potential role as a nuclear and chemical medical countermeasure in the event of radiation and chemical incidents, while RHB-107 remains focused on the outpatient treatment of COVID-19. Both molecules have also shown promise for potential use in the treatment of the Ebola virus disease, along with other viral pandemic scenarios, and various inflammatory and oncologic conditions.

Both opaganib and RHB-107 are novel, oral, host-directed small molecule drugs with demonstrated safety and efficacy profiles that are ideally suited to nuclear/chemical incidents and viral pandemic scenarios, being viral mutation-resistant and easy to administer and distribute.

Opaganib (ABC294640)4
Opaganib is a first-in-class, orally administered sphingosine kinase-2 (SPHK2) selective inhibitor with potential for broad activity across radioprotection, cancer, inflammatory and viral conditions. Opaganib's host-directed action is thought to work through the inhibition of multiple pathways, the induction of autophagy and apoptosis, and disruption of viral replication, through simultaneous inhibition of three sphingolipid-metabolizing enzymes in human cells (SPHK2, DES1 and GCS). Current focuses of opaganib's development are:

Nuclear and chemical medical countermeasures: Opaganib has been selected for evaluation by two U.S. government countermeasures programs for Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) and Sulfur Mustard exposure, both funded by the NIH.

Ebola virus disease: U.S. Army-funded and conducted studies suggest opaganib is the first host-directed molecule to show activity in vivo in Ebola virus disease, significantly increasing survival time, and separately, opaganib demonstrated robust synergistic effect in vitro when combined with remdesivir (Veklury®; Gilead Sciences, Inc.), improving viral inhibition while maintaining cell viability.

Nuclear and Chemical Medical Countermeasures updates

  • In November 2022, the Company announced acceleration of opaganib's nuclear radiation protection development program, with newly published data from eight U.S. government-funded in vivo studies, and additional experiments, indicating that opaganib was associated with:
    • Protection of normal tissue, including gastrointestinal, from radiation damage due to ionizing radiation exposure or cancer radiotherapy.
    • Improvement of antitumor activity, response to chemoradiation, and enhancement of tolerability and survival.
    • Radioprotective capacity in bone marrow, with opaganib showing enhanced survival in mice irradiated with both lethal and half-lethal whole-body radiation.
    • Protection of normal tissue, including gastrointestinal, from radiation damage due to ionizing radiation exposure or cancer radiotherapy.
    • Improvement of antitumor activity, response to chemoradiation, and enhancement of tolerability and survival.
    • Radioprotective capacity in bone marrow, with opaganib showing enhanced survival in mice irradiated with both lethal and half-lethal whole-body radiation.
  • In addition, in November 2022, the Company announced additional positive in vivo results from a new pre-clinical study evaluating the effects of opaganib on radiation-induced hematologic and renal toxicity, which suggests that opaganib exerts a protective impact on key hematological and kidney function parameters following total body irradiation (TBI). Development of opaganib as a homeland security nuclear medical countermeasure is currently expected to follow the Animal Rule under which human efficacy studies may not be required, and if approved, may be eligible for a Medical Countermeasure Priority Review Voucher.
  • In February 2023, the Company announced that the Radiation and Nuclear Countermeasures Program (RNCP), of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, had selected opaganib for the nuclear medical countermeasures product development pipeline as a potential treatment for ARS. As part of this collaboration, contractors directed and supported by the RNCP will undertake studies, designed in collaboration with us, to test opaganib in established ARS models.
  • In July 2023, the Company announced that Apogee had been awarded a further $1.7 million in U.S. government funding, via a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant, which will support research to further the development of opaganib as an MCM for GI-ARS. This grant is in addition and complementary to the multimillion dollar-valued U.S. government RNCP product pipeline development contract awarded to opaganib following its selection by the RNCP for ARS development.
  • In February 2024, the Company announced that the International Journal of Molecular Sciences published data showing that opaganib protects against radiation-induced lung inflammation and fibrosis in an in vivo mouse model of lung damage following exposure to ionizing radiation.
  • In March 2024, the Company announced that opaganib had been selected by the U.S. government's Chemical Medical Countermeasure Program and chemical countermeasures research program for evaluation as a potential MCM against inhalation Sulfur Mustard exposure. This selection follows opaganib's previous acceptance into the RNCP for ARS development, providing the potential to see broad activity across both radiation and Sulfur Mustard injuries.

Ebola updates

  • In October 2023, the Company announced that opaganib delivered a statistically significant increase in survival time when given at 150 mg/kg twice a day (BID) with a 30% mice survival benefit compared to control in a United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in vivo Ebola virus study, making it the first host-directed molecule to show activity in Ebola virus disease.
  • In December 2023, the Company announced that opaganib demonstrated a robust synergistic effect when combined with remdesivir (Veklury® by Gilead Sciences, Inc.), significantly improving viral inhibition while maintaining cell viability, in a new U.S. Army-funded and conducted Ebola virus in vitro study.

RHB-107 (upamostat)5

A novel investigational broad-acting, host-directed once-daily oral antiviral targeting multiple potential indications with a focus on COVID-19 and other viruses as part of a pandemic preparedness approach. RHB-107 targets human serine proteases involved in preparing the spike protein for viral entry into target cells and inhibits several proteases targeting cancer and inflammatory gastrointestinal disease. Because it is host-cell targeted, RHB-107 is expected to also be effective against emerging viral variants with mutations in the spike protein. RHB-107 is well tolerated demonstrating its clinical safety profile in approximately 200 patients6. Current focus for RHB-107 development is:

COVID-19 outpatient treatment: Accepted for inclusion in the U.S. DoD-supported 300-patient ACESO PROTECT platform trial for early COVID-19 outpatient treatment, with first patient expected to be enrolled imminently

Ebola virus disease: In U.S. Army-funded and conducted studies RHB-107 also demonstrated robust synergistic effect in vitro when combined with remdesivir

COVID-19 updates:

  • On January 3, 2023, the Company announced publication of positive data from a Phase 2 study of once-daily oral investigational RHB-107 (upamostat) in non-hospitalized symptomatic COVID-19 patients, in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Infectious Diseases. The study showed that RHB-107 successfully met the primary endpoint of safety and tolerability and delivered promising efficacy results, despite the small number of patients in each treatment group, including faster recovery from severe COVID-19 symptoms and 100% reduction in hospitalization due to COVID-19.
  • In July 2023, the Company announced that RHB-107 had been accepted for inclusion in the U.S. Department of Defense-supported Austere environments Consortium for Enhanced Sepsis Outcomes' (ACESO) PROTECT multinational platform trial for early COVID-19 outpatient treatment. The 300-patient Phase 2 study has received FDA clearance. The study is being conducted in the U.S., Thailand, Ivory Coast, South Africa and Uganda, and is estimated to be completed by end of 2024. The ACESO PROTECT study is an adaptive, randomized, double blind, multi-site Phase 2 platform trial, being conducted by researchers from ACESO and partner organizations, and administered by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF).
  • In December 2023, the Company announced the receipt of non-dilutive external funding, additional to the previously announced U.S. Government funding, which now covers the entirety of the RHB-107 (upamostat) arm of the ACESO PROTECT adaptive platform trial for early COVID-19 outpatient treatment.

Ebola Virus Disease updates:

  • As part of a collaboration with the Therapeutic Discovery Branch of the USAMRIID (US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) in-vitro studies against different strains of Ebola virus and additional viral infectious diseases were undertaken. Initial data from high-content imaging assays provided further support for activities of RedHill candidates against these viral diseases.
  • In December 2023, the Company announced results from a U.S. Army-funded and conducted Ebola virus in vitro study. RHB-107 demonstrated robust synergistic effect when combined with remdesivir (Veklury® by Gilead Sciences, Inc.), significantly improving viral inhibition while maintaining cell viability.

Other R&D updates:

  • RHB-204: On January 26, 2023, the Company announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a Notice of Allowance for the granting of a patent covering orphan drug designated RHB-204's oral fixed-dose combination, methods for treating pulmonary Mycobacterium avium Complex (MAC) disease, and kits comprising a supply of fixed-dose combination products for treating pulmonary MAC disease, expected to protect RHB-2047 through 2041.
  • RHB-102: On February 16, 2023, the Company announced that following a positive pre-MAA meeting it plans to submit a Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) to the UK Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) seeking approval for RHB-102 (Bekinda) for oncology support (management of nausea and vomiting induced by cytotoxic chemotherapy and radiotherapy, also referred to as CINV and RINV) in adults and children over the age of 12.
  • RHB-204 and RHB-102 are subject to ongoing commercialization / out-licensing / divestment discussions.
