NewLink Genetics Corporation Provides Update on Phase 3 Pancreatic Cancer Trial

NewLink Genetics Corporation announced the continuation without any modification or sample size adjustment for its pivotal, Phase 3 IMmunotherapy for Pancreatic RESectable cancer Study, called "IMPRESS," of algenpantucel-L for patients with surgically resected pancreatic cancer following the second planned interim data analysis. IMPRESS is a multi-center, open-label clinical trial assessing the safety and efficacy of algenpantucel-L, NewLink Genetics' HyperAcute® Pancreatic Cancer immunotherapy candidate, conducted in more than 70 leading cancer centers. With 722 patients enrolled, IMPRESS is the large trial to be completed in the United States for patients with resected pancreatic cancer. Algenpantucel-L has received fast-track status and orphan drug designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). NewLink Genetics and the FDA reached agreement in January 2010 on a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) on the trial design, clinical endpoints and statistical analyses plan for IMPRESS to be used in support of a Biologic License Application (BLA). After careful consideration, including a series of communications with the FDA regarding the statistical analysis plan, the Company decided to retain the benefit of the SPA and not to change the statistical analysis plan as defined in the original protocol. For the second interim analysis, the independent data safety monitoring committee (DSMC) reviewed available patient data with the originally planned log-rank analysis and sample size recalculation, in all respects consistent with the SPA. No other statistical methods were used. The DSMC recommended the study proceed without any modifications, including sample size adjustment, to final analysis. Therefore the Company believes the trial remains powered to determine efficacy upon the occurrence of 444 events.

NewLink Genetics Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Financial Guidance for the Year 2015

NewLink Genetics Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of USD 39.195 million compared to USD 0.334 million a year ago. Income from operations was USD 12.848 million compared to loss from operations of USD 9.304 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was USD 12.859 million compared to loss before income taxes of USD 9.236 million a year ago. Net income was USD 11.190 million compared to net loss of USD 9.236 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share was USD 0.35 compared to diluted loss per share of USD 0.33 a year ago. The company expects to end the year on December 31, 2015, with approximately USD 160 million in cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit. This guidance recognizes that an early halt in the IMPRESS trial for effectiveness would require the need to accelerate organizational development and spending levels.
