NEW YORK, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Y-mAbs Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company” or “Y-mAbs”) (Nasdaq: YMAB) a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, antibody-based therapeutic products for the treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2022.
“The fourth quarter of 2022 marked another period of significant progress for DANYELZA and set up 2023 to be a very productive year,” said Thomas Gad, President and Interim Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to report record DANYELZA net revenues of $16.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, a 31% sequential increase compared to the previous quarter. In addition, DANYELZA was conditionally approved in China, with a planned launch in the first half of 2023. We look forward to our partners’ continued efforts to expand DANYELZA globally to offer much-needed treatment for patients with relapsed/refractory high-risk neuroblastoma in the bone or bone marrow.”
Mr. Gad continued, “We recently implemented a restructuring plan to prioritize resources on the DANYELZA franchise and development of our SADA technology in the fight against cancer. With a 35% reduction in force and an anticipated 28% reduction in annual operating expenses for 2023, we emerge leaner and supported by a robust balance sheet with $105.8 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2022, which we estimate should support our business operations as currently planned into the first quarter of 2026. We achieved a major milestone of getting our first unique SADA IND cleared by the FDA and opening up our first ever SADA Phase I trial late in 2022. We are actively screening patients initially for Small Cell Lung Cancer, Sarcoma and Melanoma and are eventually planning to screen more broadly for GD2 positive solid tumors.”
