MAINZ, Germany, May 6, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX, “BioNTech” or “the Company”) today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024, and provided an update on its corporate progress.

“In the past weeks, we have reported positive preliminary data for both our individualized and off-the-shelf mRNA-based candidates which further underline the potential of our iNeST and FixVac platforms. We look forward to providing more updates this year across our oncology portfolio, including our bispecific antibody and ADC programs,” said Prof. Ugur Sahin, M.D., CEO and Co-Founder of BioNTech. “In the remainder of the year, we plan to develop and commercialize a variant-adapted COVID-19 vaccine and accelerate our clinical development activities towards realizing the full potential of our oncology pipeline with a view to becoming a commercial company with marketed medicines for cancer and infectious diseases.”

Financial Review for the First Quarter 2024

in millions €, except per share data First Quarter 2024 First Quarter 2023
Total Revenues 187.6 1,277.0
Net (Loss) / Profit (315.1) 502.2
(Loss) / Diluted Earnings per Share (1.31) 2.05

Total revenues reported were €187.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to €1,277.0 million for the comparative prior year period. The year-over-year change was mainly due to lower commercial revenues from the sales of BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine worldwide resulting from endemic-level demand for COVID-19 vaccines.

Cost of sales were €59.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to €96.0 million for the comparative prior year period. The change was mainly due to recognizing lower cost of sales from BioNTech’s decreased COVID-19 vaccine sales, which included the share of gross profit that BioNTech owes its collaboration partner Pfizer Inc. (“Pfizer”) and royalty expenses based on BioNTech’s sales. In addition, cost of sales was impacted by expenses arising from inventory write-offs and destruction of inventory.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses were €507.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to €334.0 million for the comparative prior year period. R&D expenses were mainly influenced by progressing clinical studies for pipeline candidates. The increase was further driven by an increase in wages, benefits and social security expenses resulting from an increase in headcount.

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses reached €117.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to €111.8 million for the comparative prior year period. G&A expenses were primarily driven by increased expenses for IT environment and wages, benefits, and social security expenses resulting from an increase in headcount.

Income taxes were realized with an amount of €16.7 million of tax income for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to €205.5 of tax expenses accrued for the comparative prior year period. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024, was approximately 5.0% applicable on the negative income.

Net loss was €315.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to a net profit of €502.2 million for the comparative prior year period.

Cash and cash equivalents as well as security investments as of March 31, 2024, reached €16,939.3 million, comprising €8,976.6 million cash and cash equivalents and €7,962.7 million security investments, respectively.

Loss per share was €1.31 for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to diluted earnings per share of €2.05 for the comparative prior year period.

Shares outstanding as of March 31, 2024, were 237,725,735, excluding 10,826,465 shares held in treasury.

“We started the year making good progress across our oncology pipeline. We dosed the first patient in our second pivotal Phase 3 trial and aim to have ten or more potentially registrational trials by the end of 2024. Revenues in the first quarter reflect the seasonal demand for COVID-19 vaccines, and we expect to recognize approximately 90% of our full year revenues in the last months of 2024, mostly in Q4 of 2024. With a strong cash position of €16.9 billion, we are well positioned to invest in our innovative R&D pipeline and scale the business for commercial readiness in oncology,” said Jens Holstein, CFO of BioNTech. “We remain committed to seizing the opportunity to transform the way cancer and infectious diseases are treated, especially with our tremendous experience in using our mRNA platforms. We will focus the remainder of the year on executing and delivering on this vision with the aim to drive sustainable long-term growth and to create future value for patients, society and our shareholders.”

Outlook for the 2024 Financial Year

The Company reiterates its prior outlook for the financial year:

Total revenues for the 2024 financial year €2.5 billion - €3.1 billion

BioNTech expects group revenues for the full 2024 financial year to be in the range of €2.5 to €3.1 billion. The range reflects certain assumptions, including, but not limited to, expectations regarding: the timing and granting of regulatory approvals and recommendations; COVID-19 vaccine uptake and price levels; inventory write-downs by BioNTech’s collaboration partner Pfizer that would negatively influence the Company’s revenues; seasonal variations in SARS-CoV-2 circulation and vaccination uptake, which are expected to lead to demand peaks in the autumn and winter compared to other seasons; and revenues from a pandemic preparedness contract with the German government as well as revenues from the BioNTech Group service businesses, namely InstaDeep Ltd., JPT Peptide Technologies GmbH, and in Idar-Oberstein at BioNTech Innovative Manufacturing Services GmbH. Generally, the Company continues to remain largely dependent on revenues generated in its collaboration partner’s territories in 2024.

Planned 2024 Financial Year Expenses and Capex2:

R&D expenses3 €2.4 billion - €2.6 billion
SG&A expenses4  €700 million - €800 million
Capital expenditures for operating activities €400 million - €500 million

Top-line data from the Phase 1/2 trial (NCT05596734) demonstrated robust immune responses to influenza A, influenza B, and SARS-CoV-2 strains and that the safety profile of the candidates was consistent with the profile of the companies’ COVID-19 vaccine. A Phase 3 clinical trial (NCT06178991) is ongoing.

Select Oncology Pipeline Highlights

ADC Programs

BNT323/DB-1303 is an ADC candidate targeting Human Epidermal Growth Factor 2 (“HER2”) that is being developed in collaboration with Duality Biologics (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. (“DualityBio”). The program has been granted Breakthrough Therapy designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the treatment of advanced endometrial cancer in patients who progressed on or after treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

BNT323/DB-1303 is being evaluated in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial (NCT05150691) in patients with advanced/unresectable, recurrent or metastatic HER2-expressing solid tumors. A potentially registrational cohort is enrolling HER2-expressing (IHC3+, 2+, 1+ or ISH-positive) patients with advanced/recurrent endometrial carcinoma and aims to recruit 140 patients. A confirmatory Phase 3 trial (NCT06340568) in this patient population is planned to start in 2024.

In January, the first patient was dosed in a pivotal Phase 3 trial (NCT06018337) evaluating BNT323/DB-1303 in patients with Hormone Receptor-positive (“HR+”) and HER2-low metastatic breast cancer that have progressed on hormone therapy and/or cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 (“CDK4/6”) inhibition.

BNT325/DB-1305 is an ADC candidate targeting TROP2 that is being developed in collaboration with DualityBio. In January, BioNTech and DualityBio received Fast Track designation for BNT325/DB-1305 from the U.S. FDA for the treatment of patients with platinum-resistant ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who have received one to three prior systemic treatment regimens. A Phase 1/2 clinical trial (NCT05438329) is ongoing.

BNT326/YL202 is an ADC candidate targeting HER3 that is being developed in collaboration with MediLink Therapeutics (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (“MediLink”). A multicenter, open-label, first-in-human Phase 1 clinical trial (NCT05653752) evaluating BNT326/YL202 as a later-line treatment in patients with locally advanced or metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor (“EGFR”)-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) or HR+/HER2-negative breast cancer is ongoing in the United States and China. Preliminary data from this study are expected to be presented at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting.

Next-Generation Immune Checkpoint Immunomodulator Programs

BNT311/GEN1046 (acasunlimab) is a potential first-in-class bispecific antibody candidate combining PD-L1 checkpoint inhibition with 4-1BB costimulatory activation that is being developed in collaboration with Genmab A/S (“Genmab”). Data from a Phase 2 trial (NCT05117242) evaluating BNT311/GEN1046 in combination with pembrolizumab in pretreated NSCLC patients are expected to be presented at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting.

BNT327/PM8002 is an anti-VEGF-A antibody candidate fused to a humanized anti-PD-L1 VHH being developed in collaboration with Biotheus Inc. (“Biotheus”). BNT327/PM8002 is currently being evaluated in Phase 1 and Phase 2/3 clinical trials in China to assess the efficacy and safety of the candidate as monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy in various indications. An Investigational New Drug application has been accepted by the U.S. FDA for further studies in the United States, and global trials are planned to start this year. Monotherapy data from the Phase 1/2 trials are planned to be presented at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting.
Cancer Vaccine Programs

BNT116 is based on BioNTech’s FixVac platform, and is a wholly owned, systemically administered, off-the-shelf uridine mRNA-lipoplex based cancer vaccine candidate encoding six shared lung cancer associated antigens. A randomized, controlled Phase 2 clinical trial (NCT05557591) is ongoing to evaluate BNT116 in combination with cemiplimab versus cemiplimab alone as first-line treatment in patients with advanced NSCLC whose tumors express PD-L1 in ≥ 50% of tumor cells.

In April 2024, data from a Phase 1 trial cohort (NCT05142189) were presented at the AACR Annual Meeting. Patients were treated with BNT116 in combination with docetaxel after progression on a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor and a platinum-based chemotherapy. Preliminary data of BNT116 in combination with docetaxel show encouraging antitumor activity, consistent induction of immune responses, a manageable safety profile, and no signs of additive toxicity. Efficacy results suggest that combination therapy with BNT116 and docetaxel was active with an overall response rate (“ORR”) of 30% and a disease control rate (“DCR”) of 85%.

Autogene cevumeran (BNT122) is a uridine mRNA-lipoplex based cancer vaccine candidate for individualized neoantigen-specific immunotherapy (“iNeST”) being developed in collaboration with Genentech, Inc., a member of the Roche Group (“Genentech”). Autogene cevumeran is being evaluated in ongoing Phase 2 trials in adjuvant resected PDAC (NCT05968326), first-line melanoma (NCT03815058) and adjuvant colorectal cancer (“CRC”) (NCT04486378). Epidemiologic data including post-operative circulating tumor DNA (“ctDNA”) prevalence and prognostic value from a non-interventional, observational study (NCT04813627) in patients with resected high-risk stage II/III CRC are expected to be presented at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting. A Phase 2 clinical trial in an additional indication is planned.

In April 2024, long-term follow-up data from an investigator-initiated Phase 1 trial in patients with resected PDAC were presented at the AACR Annual Meeting. The data showed that the individualized mRNA cancer vaccine candidate autogene cevumeran continues to show polyspecific T cell responses up to three years after vaccination and that vaccine responses correlate with delayed tumor recurrence. The investigator-initiated, single center Phase 1 trial (NCT04161755) evaluated the safety of autogene cevumeran in sequential combination with the anti-PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor atezolizumab and standard-of-care chemotherapy in 16 patients with resected PDAC. Data from the 1.5-year median follow-up were previously published in Nature (Rojas, L.A et al. 2023).

Cell Therapy Programs

BNT211 consists of two investigational medicinal products: a CAR-T cell product candidate targeting Claudin-6 (“CLDN6”)-positive solid tumors in combination with a CAR-T cell-amplifying RNA vaccine (“CARVac”) encoding CLDN6. After determination of the recommended Phase 2 dose, BioNTech plans to initiate a pivotal trial in patients with germ cell tumors. BioNTech plans to present an analysis of real world evidence investigating overall survival and treatment patterns of patients with testicular germ cell tumors receiving palliative chemotherapy at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting.

Corporate Update for the First Quarter 2024 and Key Post Period-End Events

In February, BioNTech entered into a strategic collaboration with Autolus Therapeutics plc (“Autolus”) aimed at advancing both companies’ autologous CAR-T programs towards commercialization, pending regulatory authorizations. The collaboration also grants BioNTech the option to access a suite of Autolus’s target binders and cell programming technologies.
