For this period presented in these financial statements, the potential exercise of share options is not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation as the Company was loss-making in all periods. Due to the anti-dilutive nature of the outstanding options, basic and diluted earnings per share are equal in this period.

Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

 

The Company’s financial results have varied substantially, and are expected to continue to vary, from period to period. The Company believes that its ordinary activities are not linked to any particular seasonal factors.

The Company operates in one reportable segment, which comprises the discovery and development of innovative, RNA based therapeutics.

3. Adoption of new and revised International Financial Reporting Standards

The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the Company’s annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, except for the change in accounting policies resulting from the implementation of IFRS 16 Leases.  

IFRS 16 specifies how an entity recognizes, measures, presents and discloses leases. The standard provides a single lessee accounting model, requiring lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for all leases unless the lease term is 12 months or less or the underlying asset has a low value. Upon implementation of the standard on January 1, 2019, the Company recognized a lease liability and a corresponding right-of-use asset. As at December 31, 2019, the carrying amount of the lease liability is € 0.5 million and the carrying amount of the right-of-use asset is € 0.6 million
The impact on the income statement is that operating expenses are replaced by depreciation expenses on the right-of-use asset and interest expenses on the lease liability. The main impact on the statement of cash flows is higher cash flows from operating activities, since cash payments for the principal part of the lease liability are classified as cash flows used in financing activities, whereas such payments were previously classified as cash flows used in operating activities. (effect on the year ended December 31, 2019: € 1.3 million).

Other new Standards and Interpretations, which became effective as of January 1, 2019, did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

4. Critical Accounting Estimates and Judgments

In the application of the Company’s accounting policies, management is required to make judgments, estimates and assumptions about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods.

(a) Share-based payments

Share options granted to employees and consultants are measured at the fair value of the equity instruments granted. Fair value is determined through the use of the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, which is considered the most appropriate model for this purpose by management.

Initially, the Company’s ordinary shares were not publicly traded and consequently the Company needed to estimate the fair value of its share and the expected volatility of that value. Please refer to the Company’s annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 for the assumptions used in those estimates. The value of the underlying shares

was determined on the basis of the prior sale of company stock method. As such, the Company has benchmarked the value per share to external transactions of Company shares and external financing rounds.

For options granted from the moment of listing, the Company uses the closing price of the ordinary shares on the previous business day as exercise price of the options granted.

The result of the share option valuations and the related compensation expense is dependent on the model and input parameters used. Even though Management considers the fair values reasonable and defensible based on the methodologies applied and the information available, others might derive a different fair value for the Company’s share options.

(b) Corporate income taxes

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets arising from unused tax losses or tax credits only to the extent that the Company has sufficient taxable temporary differences or there is convincing evidence that sufficient taxable profit will be available against which the unused tax losses or unused tax credits can be utilized. Management’s judgment is that such convincing evidence is currently not sufficiently available and a deferred tax asset is therefore only recognized to the extent that the Company has sufficient taxable temporary differences.

(c) Grant income

Grant income is not recognized until there is reasonable assurance that the Company will comply with the conditions attached to them. Grants are recognized in profit or loss on a systematic basis over the period the Company recognizes as expenses the related costs for which the grants are expected to compensate.

(d) Research and development expenditures

Research expenditures are currently not capitalized but are reflected in the income statement because the criteria for capitalization are not met. At each balance sheet date, the Company estimates the level of service performed by the vendors and the associated costs incurred for the services performed.

Although we do not expect the estimates to be materially different from amounts actually incurred, the understanding of the status and timing of services performed relative to the actual status and timing of services performed may vary and could result in reporting amounts that are too high or too low in any particular period.

 

5. Cash and Cash Equivalents

At December 31, 2019, the Company’s cash and equivalents were € 111,950,000 as compared to € 105,580,000 at December 31, 2018. The cash balances are held at banks with investment grade credit ratings. The cash at banks is at full disposal of the Company.

 

6. Current liabilities

At December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the other current liabilities consisted principally of accruals for services provided by vendors not yet billed, payroll related accruals and other miscellaneous liabilities.

On June 1, 2012, ProQR was awarded an Innovation credit by the Dutch government, through its agency RVO of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, for the Company’s cystic fibrosis program. Amounts were drawn under this facility in the course of the years 2013 through 2017. The credit covered 35% of the costs incurred in respect of the program up to € 5.0 million.

 

The credit is interest-bearing at a rate of 10% per annum. Early October 2018 ProQR received a conditional waiver of the €5 million Innovation credit. Consequently, the repayment of the total loan of €8.1 million, including interest, has been waived if conditions are met, which will be reviewed annually for 3 years. The assets which are co-financed with the granted innovation credit are subject to a right of pledge for the benefit of RVO.

 

On December 10, 2018 ProQR was awarded an Innovation credit for the sepofarsen program. Amounts will be drawn under this facility from 2018 through 2021. The credit of € 4.7 million through December 31, 2021 will be used to conduct the Phase 2/3 clinical study and efforts to obtain regulatory and ethical market approval (NDA/MAA) of sepofarsen

for LCA10, of which €2.2 million has been received at December 31, 2019. The credit, including accrued interest of 10% per annum, is repayable depending on obtaining market approval.

 

Convertible loans

Convertible loans were issued to Amylon Therapeutics B.V. and are interest-bearing at an average rate of 8% per annum. They are convertible into a variable number of ordinary shares within 36 months at the option of the holder or the Company in case financing criteria are met. Any unconverted loans become payable on demand after 24 – 36 months in equal quarterly terms.

8. Shareholders’ equity

Initiated a first-in-human trial for the third inherited retinal disease program, QR-1123 for autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa

€48.6 million net proceeds from public offering in 2019 extended cash runway into 2022

 

LEIDEN, Netherlands & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.,  Feb 26,  2020 -- ProQR Therapeutics N.V. (Nasdaq: PRQR) (the “Company”), a company dedicated to changing lives through the creation of transformative RNA medicines for severe genetic rare diseases,  today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019 and provided a business update.

“We made significant progress in 2019 as we advanced our portfolio of investigational RNA therapies for patients that suffer from inherited retinal diseases and are in a strong position as we enter 2020,” said Daniel A. de Boer, Chief Executive Officer of ProQR. “In 2019 we shared positive Phase 1/2 data for sepofarsen in LCA10 and started the pivotal Phase 2/3 Illuminate trial for this program. We advanced two additional programs to Phase 1/2 clinical testing – QR-421a for Usher syndrome and non-syndromic RP, and QR-1123 for adRP. We strengthened our Supervisory Board and Leadership Team, and extended our cash runway into 2022 with an upsized public offering in October.”

Mr. de Boer continued, “We expect to build on this momentum with a number of anticipated events in 2020. We are on track to report the first clinical data from the Phase 1/2 Stellar trial for QR-421a in late Q1. This interim analysis will include data from the first two dosing cohorts and is intended to inform next steps in development. We also plan to provide an update from the InSight open label extension study of sepofarsen in H2 2020, including data from the contralateral eye treatment.  In anticipation of the pivotal data readout from the Illuminate trial of sepofarsen in H1 2021 we are preparing for the planned NDA submission and continue to build our commercial capabilities. This year we  also expect to move QR-504a for Fuchs into clinical development and further advance our novel Axiomer® RNA editing platform. With these events we look forward to another productive year in 2020 as we advance our pipeline to bring new therapies to patients.”

Corporate Highlights and Business Update

Sepofarsen (QR-110) for Leber’s congenital amaurosis 10 (LCA10)

Reported positive top-line results from the Phase 1/2 clinical trial.  In the trial, sepofarsen was observed to be well tolerated with rapid, significant and durable improvements in vision maintained at month twelve. The target registration dose for the ongoing Phase 2/3 Illuminate trial showed a favorable benefit/risk profile in the Phase 1/2 trial.

The findings from the Phase 1/2 trial support the design of the ongoing Phase 2/3 Illuminate trial that could be the sole registration trial for the program. Top-line data from Illuminate are expected during H1 2021.

Received Rare Pediatric Disease designation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Granted access to the PRIority MEdicines (PRIME) program by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The Company expects to report updated data from the InSight extension study H2 2020, including data from contralateral eye treatment.

 

QR-421a for Usher syndrome type 2

The Phase 1/2 Stellar trial of QR-421a in patients with Usher syndrome type 2 is ongoing and on track to deliver interim data in late Q1 2020.

Received Rare Pediatric Disease designation and Fast Track designation from the FDA.

QR-1123 for autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP)

The ongoing Phase 1/2 Aurora trial of QR-1123 in patients with adRP began enrolling patients in December 2019 and initial data from the study are expected in 2021.

About Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis 10 (LCA10)

Leber’s congenital amaurosis (LCA) is the most common cause of blindness due to genetic disease in children. It consists of a group of diseases of which LCA10 is the most frequent and one of the most severe forms. LCA10 is caused by mutations in the CEP290 gene, of which the p.Cys998X mutation has the highest prevalence. LCA10 leads to early loss of vision causing most people to lose their sight in the first few years of life. To date, there are no treatments approved or other products in clinical development that treat the underlying cause of the disease. Approximately 2,000 people in the Western world have LCA10 because of this mutation.

About Sepofarsen

Sepofarsen (QR-110) is being evaluated in the pivotal Phase 2/3 Illuminate trial and is a first-in-class investigational RNA-based oligonucleotide designed to address the underlying cause of Leber’s congenital amaurosis 10 due to the p.Cys998X mutation (also known as the c.2991+1655A>G mutation) in the CEP290 gene. The p.Cys998X mutation leads to aberrant splicing of the mRNA and non-functional CEP290 protein. Sepofarsen is designed to enable normal splicing, resulting in restoration of normal (wild type) CEP290 mRNA and subsequent production of functional CEP290 protein. Sepofarsen is intended to be administered through intravitreal injections in the eye and has been granted orphan drug designation in the United States and the European Union and received fast-track designation and rare pediatric disease designation from the FDA as well as access to the PRIME scheme by the EMA.

About Usher Syndrome Type 2

Usher syndrome is the leading cause of combined deafness and blindness. Patients with this syndrome generally progress to a stage in which they have very limited central vision and moderate to severe deafness. Usher syndrome type 2 is one of the most common forms of Usher syndrome and can be caused by mutations in the USH2A gene. To date, there are no pharmaceutical treatments approved or in clinical development that treat the vision loss associated with Usher syndrome type 2.

About QR-421a

QR-421a is being evaluated in the Phase 1/2 Stellar trial and is a first-in-class investigational RNA-based oligonucleotide designed to address the underlying cause of vision loss in Usher syndrome type 2 and non-syndromic retinitis pigmentosa (RP) due to mutations in exon 13 of the USH2A gene. QR-421a is designed to restore functional Usherin protein by using an exon skipping approach with the aim to stop or reverse vision loss in patients. QR-421a is intended to be administered through intravitreal injections in the eye and has been granted orphan drug designation in the US and the European Union and received fast-track and Rare Pediatric Disease designations from the FDA.

About Autosomal Dominant Retinitis Pigmentosa (adRP)

Autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa, or adRP, is a severe and rare genetic disease that causes progressive problems in night vision during childhood, leading to visual field loss and frequently resulting in blindness in mid adulthood. In the United States, the most prevalent mutation associated with adRP is the P23H point mutation (also known as the c.68C>A mutation) in the rhodopsin (RHO) gene and affects approximately 2,500 people. This mutation causes misfolding of the rhodopsin protein that becomes toxic to the photoreceptor cells and at the same time diminishes the function of the wild type allele. Over time this results in cell death and progressive vision loss. There are currently no therapies approved or in clinical development for P23H adRP. A natural history study in patients with P23H adRP has been conducted.

About QR-1123

QR-1123 is being evaluated in the Phase 1/2 Aurora trial and is a first-in-class investigational RNA-based oligonucleotide designed to treat adRP due to the P23H mutation in the RHO gene. QR-1123 was discovered and developed by Ionis Pharmaceuticals using Ionis’ proprietary antisense technology. The therapy aims to inhibit the formation of the mutated toxic version of the rhodopsin protein by specifically binding the mutated RHO mRNA. Binding of QR-1123 causes allele specific knockdown of the mutant mRNA by a mechanism called RNase H mediated cleavage without affecting the normal RHO mRNA. QR-1123 is intended to be administered through intravitreal injections in the eye. QR-1123 was in-licensed from Ionis Pharmaceuticals in 2018. QR-1123 has been granted Orphan Drug designation in the United States and received Fast Track designation from the FDA.

About Fuchs Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy (FECD)

Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) is a common inherited condition characterized by the dysfunction and degeneration of the corneal endothelium, a single cell layer of cells on the inside of the cornea. FECD is a common disorder; it is estimated that FECD affects more than 4% of individuals over the age of 40 in the U.S., and similar prevalence is noted for other global regions. There are different types of this disease and we focus on age-related FECD (FECD3). Some patients with age-related FECD develop advanced disease with corneal edema and corneal clouding. These symptoms can lead to complete vision loss and the need for surgery and a corneal transplant.

About QR-504a

We are developing QR-504a as an RNA therapy for the treatment of FECD3. We plan to advance the QR-504a program into a first clinical trial in late-stage disease patients in 2020. QR-504a is designed to target the intronic TNRs in the TCF4 RNA. The aim is to reduce aggregation and the formation of RNA foci in order to normalize the RNA splicing patterns, and prevent or halt corneal degeneration in patients with FECD3.

About Axiomer

ProQR is pioneering a next-generation RNA technology called Axiomer®, which could potentially yield a new class of medicines for genetic diseases. Axiomer® “Editing Oligonucleotides”, or EONs, mediate single nucleotide changes to RNA in a highly specific and targeted way using molecular machinery that is present in human cells. The Axiomer® EONs are designed to recruit an endogenously expressed RNA editing system called ADAR, which can direct the change of an Adenosine (A) to an Inosine (I) in the RNA – an Inosine is translated as a Guanosine (G).

About ProQR

ProQR Therapeutics is dedicated to changing lives through the creation of transformative RNA medicines for the treatment of severe genetic rare diseases such as Leber’s congenital amaurosis 10, Usher syndrome and autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa. Based on our unique proprietary RNA repair platform technologies we are growing our pipeline with patients and loved ones in mind.
